Okay, so i'm manager of Cardiff City in my second season, I was promoted to the Premier League in my first season via playoffs and now a few months into my premier league season sitting at 20th with 4 points (from 13 games!)

I seriously need help with some form of tactics/formation in order for me to get some points and hopefully avoid relegation!

Below is my team, sorry about the size of the picture, i appreciate it may be hard to read.



So has anyone got any idea as to what sort of tactic i should try?

Its a really simple set up. Copy from this screen shot.

The player roles are:

GK
Full back x2
Centre Back x2
RCM is a ball winning MF
LCM is a Central MF
Wingers x2
RCF is an advanced Forward
LCF is a Poacher

Set your advanced forward to challenge keeper on corners.
set corners to far post
set free kicks to best header.

Get an assistant manager with good motivation stats and make him give the teamtalks.

Get more info about the tactic on the link i gave.

I was using the wrong tactics folder, for some reason there is two. I just went;

Finder>Documents>Sports Interactive>Football Manager 2011>tactics

and then copied the tactic into there :)
