Hello, I just started a game with Villarreal. I choose a narrow 4-2-3-1 to fit in all the stars (I couldn't get Cazorla). But in the friendlies Im doing pretty bad, 1-0, 0-0, 1-1 with Serie B teams. I have bought Kevin and Cabaye. I play:
Nilmar
Rossi Cani Cazorla
Cabaye Senna
Capdevilla Marchena Rodriguez Angel
Diego Lopez

Nilmar: Poacher
Rossi: Trequartista
Cani: Advanced Playmaker
Cazorla: Attacking Midfielder
Cabaye: Deep Lying Playmaker
Senna: Ball Winning Midfielder
Capdevilla & Angel: Full backs
Marchena & Rodriguez: Center-halves

As to tactics, I play fluid, with zonal marking, direct passing and focus passing down the middle.

Btw I already set my field to the smallest possible because I thought I would play the narrow tactic.

I could really use any feedback. Thanks in advance :D

Using AMC and 2 strikers. For example Kaká as AMC and playmaker, technical as ****... How should I put striker roles to get AMC work best making chances to strikers (doesn't matter who I have as ST 'cause this is not for a single team and plaers who I'm asking this for) and the strikers to get in scoring positions. Added to that if I want both strikers to score goals should I anyhow put one of them supporting amc so amc won't get isolated or should I give him support from the midfield. Then same thing using AMC and 2 strikers but now the AMC is a bit like Gerrard/Lampard type, stronger and hard worker and don't need to be that technical. AMC in this case won't be playmaking so I want to use atleast one technical striker like Aguero/Suarez/ who will play as Deeplying fwd - attack so he will be main scorer. How do I put AMC and other ST in this case to utilize all of them best and make them work as a small team and not make them terrorize each other? Please help me with this I've been struggling with this for awhile.

Set your defense to zonal only for your 4 defenders, set the others to man mark. If you only set to zonal, your flank will be rather weak. Also, you might want to set your full backs to be more attacking to provide support on the flanks.

Do you use primary playmaker? I think it's better to use none since you have some creative players there. If you want to play in short pitch, it's better to use short passing because there are less space for your attackers while playing direct style.

Try slow down the tempo and play on opponent's half, set the d-line a bit higher to close the gap between your defenders and midfielders. If playing against opponent with quick strikers, set the mentality of your fullbacks to defensive to prevent getting exposed on the back.

Basically, the key is maintaining possession with your 5 midfielders and create chances from there. If you can't get through the middle (like some teams with 2 defensive midfielders), get your full backs to support from the flank and play drill crosses. Your current style will have hard time playing against opponent with narrow and deep defenders. Set your strategy to control to maintain possession and try to keep the ball on opponent's half as much as you can. Also, it's good to play a bit of long shots to force the defenders out of position to give space for your poacher.

I'm working on a tactic which involves a lot of possesion and passes, can anyone recommend a decent lower league team which has players who is a bit like messi, xavi, iniesta and the rest of the barca team. Or a team with 2-3 good "barca-kind players" and a budget to buy 2-3 more.

Can anybody tell me how I apply training schedules and formations on a mac? I down load them and cant find where to save to and apply... detailed instructions if you please :)
Place your files in finder/documents/sports interactive/football manager 2011/schedules or /tactics. Then in game you will find your formations under tactics/archived tactics. You will need to import your training schedules. In training you go to manage schedules/import/file.

Have peace.

What's a good partnership for Aguero and Rooney? I'm using Rooney as a TS (support) and Aguero as a CF (attack) but it's not working too well. Any suggestions?

It is not possible in FM11, comes as a new feature in FM12 which is released in couple weeks.

I usually have Rooney as a Complete Forward on Support and Aguero as either a Poacher or a Trequartista - sometimes a Complete Forward with Attack duty.

Are sweeper keepers supposed to come out of the 18-yard box to "sweep" the ball?

Because mine never does.
