  1. Re: Do You Use 3-5-2 I like to use 3-5-2 as it is quite effective. however, I think one of the more pertinent issues is finding a formation to combat the opponents. 3-5-2 might give you a 3-0 win one week and a 0-3 defeat the next - based on what the opposition is playing. look at your opponents' match results to see what formations have beat them in the past. one very general guide is if you are a higher rated team, play attacking, if you are a lower rated team, play defensive. Having said that, I find 3-5-2 with fast wing-passing has good results in lower leagues.
  2. Re: Results are unrealistic !!!! This game isn't really about the match or the tactics - it's an accountancy game. The ME is random; no rhyme nor reason.
  3. Re: Adding New Players On a point of order, wher can we find the criteria? the only one I can find is:
  4. Re: Finances tab That's squad finances, not club finances. It's not a major problem, just a wee bug that's popped up.

  6. Re: Adding New Players Without wishing to get into a lesson in semantics, it can't be 'self-explanatory' if you need other information to explain it. And yes, he does. This isn't about whether he's added or not; it's about the vague auto-response.
  7. Disappeared from the Main Squad area still in the banner at the top of the page though
  8. Re: Results are unrealistic !!!! I think the match-fixing problem is the bigger issue here.
  9. Re: hazard for robinho? Swap him, but I'd be surprised if the other dude takes the swap.
  10. Using players' primary postitions. Casillas Maicon/Alves...Vidic...Puyol...Evra/Cole Ronaldo...Busquets...Xavi...Ribery Messi...Villa/Eto'o/Ibrahimovic For the purposes of this, midfield has one CM and one DM with two wingers. Anyone think they could make a better real-life 4-4-2?
  11. Re: FIFA Balon d'Or 2011 Yep. A tougher league.
  12. Re: FIFA Balon d'Or 2011 Ronaldo. Would be very interesting to see how Messi gets on in a tougher league.
  13. Bit rude that. Would be nice if they told you why it was rejected.
  14. Re: TFC - Discussions,Transfer News & M/R's Any teams available here?
  15. Re: Match engine Grand so, Stuart. I'll keep going nonetheless. Athletic Club 2 - 3 Spartak Moscow Possession 44% 56% Total Shots 22 15 Shots On Target 15 13 Corners 4 8 Yellow Cards 1 1 Red Cards 0 0 Interesting to see the possession stats here compared to the shots. Also interesting to see that the match was won by the posession dominator rather than the shot dominator. Also worth noting is the half time score of 0 - 3. Atheltic pulled it round a bit on the second half yet no tactical changes were made by either side. perhaps Spartak weren't fully fit. Formations: Ath: 3-5-2 spar: 4-5-1 The average team ratings were Athletic: 90 Spartak: 84
  16. Re: Lets have a maximum amount of players per team.
  17. Re: My crusade to counter the 4-2-3-1 There is a guy in one of my game worlds who only uses 4-2-3-1. He's been beaten several times this season. Every time he's lost, he's lost to either 3-5-2 or 4-4-2 I played him on Saturday past with 5-3-2 and got whupped 4-1.
  18. Re: Match engine Next game up - Olympiakos v Panathanaikos Olympiakos managed by Racky; Pana managed by Com Olympiakos 'keeper had one shot to save and failed; Pan 'keeper had 8 shots to save and made seven saves. So, you expect the Olympiakos 'keeper to score low and Pana 'keeper to score high, right? Let's see.... So, another anomaly with the 'keeper match ratings. And not only that, the one goal the Pan keeper did concede was a penalty. Zarate the penalty scorer was MotM.
