Need help. I play Chelsea and Torres won't finish. When he goes one on one or in the box he hits it STRAIGHT at the keeper. I want him to place his shots.

Aston Villa, second season. I played a 4-4-2 with wingers (Young and Albrighton) in he first season with Charlie Adam supporting and Makoun as DM. Agbonlahor and Bent up front were fantastic. At the end of the season, finished 4th in PL, won Europa League and Carling Cup - a pretty good season for Villa :D Anyway, was wondering whether i should change my tactic for next season, being as though the AI can 'learn' how you play. Already brought a new GK and Auralio from Liverpool to replace Warnock at LB. Any tactics/transfer recommendations???

I need a tactic that will work well with my Newcastle side. I've been trying to use a 4-5-1 tactics with the DM, 2 CM's and 2 Inside Forwards but I've been getting no luck at all. I have been fairly decent defensively so far but my team really struggles to score.

My starting 11 is usually:

Krul

Simpson--Taylor--Coloccini--Santon

Tiote

Cabaye----Gosling

Ben Arfa----------------Gutierrez

Ba​


Subs:
Sergio Araujo
Obertan
Leon Best
Williamson
Marveaux
Harper
R. Taylor

I also have a budget of £20M I could use to bring in some new players if you have any suggestions to strengthen my side.

I need an away tactic for Juventus. I always struggle in away games whenever playing as a big team

I have Criscito, Chiellini, Kjaer & Cassani at the back and they are solid.

Lots of flair and creativity in midfield - Paulo Henrigue, Kaka, Marchisio, Pirlo; Fellaini & Moussa Sissikho for more defensive roles.

For the flanks I have Bale, Krasic, Pepe & Podolski who can also play up front.

Up front i now have Lisandro Lopez, Tevez, Iaquinta and two younger players im developing - Soulimane Coulibaly & Mattia Destro

Basically I really need a way to win away games using wingers - cus Bale is my best attacking player and won Seria A highest avg rating last season. But i don't know how to score goals aplenty away from home with one striker up front (eg.4-5-1) and also every time i play away my scouts tell me I should play deep, narrow and slow in the next game - every game! lol

What should I do? Any tips much appreciated, thanks :)

First time member on here. Have been using FM2010 for some time. I am managing Hartlepool United and among my players are Andy Monkhouse, Leon Sweeney, Anthony McSweeney and Adam Boyd.

I was told on Footballmanagermad.com when it comes to all leagues when playing 4-4-2 this should be the strategy

Philosophy: Balanced
Creative Freedom: Expressive
Closing Down: Press More
Tackling: Default
Marking: Man
Crossing: Default
Roaming: More Roaming

Roles: Default
Duties: Default

Attacking Corners: 6 Yard Box
Free Kicks: Best Header

Central Defenders should attack corners (1 x Challenge Keeper & 1 x Attack Near Post) and all players baring a striker Man Marking.

Now, I don't set the above order but I do all of the above that every time, but am not doing well at all. I have:
Pl 8 Won 1 Drawn 2 Lost 5 GD+10 GD-17 Pts 5.

I don't know what I am doing wrong. Can anyone help? When it comes to the Mentality I vary as the game goes on depending on how I am doing. Sometimes I switch to Attacking, sometimes to Overload, sometimes to Control. I just try them all till I get back in the game but I never do. I always end up losing 3-0 or 4-1.

Don't forget to assign each player duties, and the duties need to be compatible with your play.

So consider what position description (box-2-box, winger, poacher...) suits which player best, then does that role fit intended game play?

I did similar setups initially before realising later it didn't suit my player talents. And while some work there wasn't any consistency.

I've since moved away from others formulas and working **** out on my own :D
Luckily I are a patient man.
