Hi Guys, Just wanted to ask about a couple of issues i'm having with my Swansea City file. I'm using a possession tactic very similar to the one suggested in Raikan007's possession thread. However i'm having a massive amount of trouble off crosses and set plays. I seem to give away a goal every game from a corner or a crossed free kick and i'm wondering if anyones got an idea's on how I can change this? I've been working on defending set pieces for all of pre-season as I was worried about this and I'm now 10 or so games in and the problem is persisting. I'm using Ashley Williams and Chico Flores to mark the tall players, along with 7m signing Mile Jedinak of Crystal palace who has very good stats for defending of set plays. However I cannot seem to address the problems. Just wondered if anyone could suggest any ways of fixing this persisting issue that is hampering my ability to win games! Its so frustrating. Thanks a lot.
