Norte Link: Norte
Sur Link: Sur

Here's a dual tactic set up that's been working in the Championship with Burnley (media prediction 5th, currently in 1st) and in tests with Liverpool, Arsenal, and Chelsea (after Mourinho got sacked in my game, I couldn't resist trying it :p ). I tend to use Norte for Home games and with bigger teams who are favored away and use Sur for Away games or with smaller teams who are underdogs at home. Anyway you use them works - this patch likes to have 2 different tactics to keep the AI guessing, it seems.

If anyone can find a good corner routine, plug it in here and it'll be even better, because I haven't found a corner or throw-in set up that works with this new patch yet.

It works best if you actually play through the games and manage your subs smartly, but the Burnley save was all tested with Instant Results only and we're still in 1st, so that works too.

No OIs. Man marking is set up, but you can try experimenting with OIs and markings if you want.
Training:

test this with man utd and instant result no signings... at home is unbelieveble, but those 3 was devastating :/// Used "Sur" on every single away game... gonna keep testing with def.positioning training now, but if you can resolve away games, this supposed to be AMAZING!

Wow, nice results for instant resulting the whole thing, I haven't tried that yet...

Yes, those away games are tougher with this new patch. Def Positioning may help. You can try Norte for away games with Def Position too, might throw off the AI a bit. I'm experimenting with the same formation but some tweaks to team and individuals to see if I can tighten it up at all for away games.

But 28 goals for Rooney in 31 games is pretty great - I can never get him to score :p

How did you line up your Liverpool midfield mate?

How is the cards and fouls? Im using your other tactic (4-2-3-1) and it works greats, although playing against 2 strikers is a problem (many 1x1s or 2x2s). Because of it, im getting a lot of yellow and red cards in the 1st half!

If this goes better, i will try it!

I usually had Coutinho as the AMC and then rotated the 3 mids between Allen, Henderson, Can and Firminho (or Leiva, if I got desperate). I didn't have specific mid roles for them, but started them in all 3 different mid spots, to keep the AI guessing.

You rotate their place/role?

Do you believe that confuses the AI?

Cards seem slightly better because I took off the Get Stuck In instruction. Also helps if you train Def. Pos. too, they seem to be more disciplined.
