Re: Tactics Help Thread

Simple part of the tactics really. :P

If the squad you're facing is:

Significantly better than you: V.Defensive

Better than you: Defensive

Equal or almost equal to you: Normal

Weaker than you: Attacking

Significantly weaker than you: V.Attacking

You see the trend don't you B)

here's the thing, my team(which I just bought) lacks quality defenders but has excellent AMs whereas my opponent has a better and well balanced team(offensive and defensive) . so according to you I should play defensive but I'm a afraid that my defense won't hold as it not only lacks in quality but also in quantity(I only have 3 decent defenders 80's rating)

so I'm thinking why not make the most of what I have(AM's and FWDs) and go with V.attacking mentality

what do you think?

Re: Tactics Help Thread Well, imo at least last year they played 4-3-3 with wingers, full backs making runs: Dani Alves - Puyol - Pique - Abidal YaYa Touré Xavi - Iniesta Messi - Eto'o - Henr

You do realise this post is from 2008?

Re: Tactics Help Thread For those struggling with tactics I myself have tried a multitude of different formations/tactics and to me this is the best three formations that work, you might have to buy

Base is solely on average rating of the starting XI

Re: Tactics Help Thread

so if I went with a defensive mentality do I need to back it up with a defensive formation? or 3-5-2 is ok?

EDIT: Actually if you wana play a defensive game with a stronger team you can, just counter-attack and men behind ball and defensive formation.

But if your formation is neutral like 4-4-2 or 3-5-2 go with my first piece of advice.

Re: Tactics Help Thread

I desperatly need help, I've tried to sort out my losing streak for a while on my own but to no avail with different formations, yellow arrows instructions etc. Last season I won both the cup and shield. Since the latter of the two (shield I think) I haven't won a game, except for the community shield on penalties. This meant I went from way clear at the top of the table to runner up in the league (on goal difference from third). I'm playing much weaker teams and getting thrashed and am now in the relegation zone after 10 games in this season with 5 points. I like to play 4 at the back to help squad rotation but can't buy a win atm so would love any help.

I have won my cup and shield games so far this season but against only div 4 teams.

Squad (I have 43 youth players who I never play as they are max rated 82)

Re: Tactics Help Thread

I need some help with finding the right tactics for my side. I play in a very competitive gameworld, and am in danger of relegation!! I've tried playing 3-5-2. 5-3-2 (normal and sweeper), 5-4-1 and nothing has brought any consistency. Generally I play Counter-attack, defensive mentality with direct passing. Any tips or formations suggestion most welcome.

Currently playing 3-4-2-1, normal mentality, normal tempo, pressing own half, men behind the ball, counter attack, play maker and target man, Passing through the middle with the 2 players in this formation with back arrows. This has given me 1 win and 1 draw in the 2 games I have used it so far.

Most teams in this league use 3-5-2 or 4-5-1. I figured 3-4-2-1 with the arrows *should* give me a 6 man midfield

Re: Tactics Help Thread

Hi,

After recently taking over an Arsenal team which had a very tough 1st season (last place before relegation, aka 17th), I decided that the tactic that most suited the players available was 3412.

Please advise me re potential threats and weaknesses of this tactic and do suggest alternatives.

The game being played is a World Championship and I need all the help I can get to make this Arsenal team develop and be successful in it.

Thanks!

Re: Tactics Help Thread

Can anybody help with choosing my tactics for this squad. I am in a very competitive game world and all the best players are taken immediately.

Which is the best tactic to play with having the below players and where should I improve?

GK - Iker Casillas (95),

Lb - Ashley Cole (94), *Jose Enrique (88) *Jordi Alba (87)

RB - Syrna (91), Rafinha (90)

CB - Pepe (93), Boateng (90), Skyrtel (90), *Benatia (88), *Ruiz (87)

DM / CM - Cambiasso (95), Lampard (94), Song (91), Montolivo (91)

WNG / AM - Cazorla (91), Turan (90), Gaitan (89), Mertens (88)

FWD / CF - Villa (96), Adebayor (91), Huntelaar (90), Walcott (90)

* Most probably will get a +1 in the next review

Most of my rivals plays with the 3-5-2 & 4-3-3 Wingers.

Thanks in advance for your help
