A Guide for Newcomers

Re: A Guide for Newcomers

What is the best formation to play against the 4-3-3 wingers. I have a very delicate game (last match) with a good team. I need a win so I can win the league. Any help please' date=' thanks :)[/quote']

what i would do; iIf the opponent has a much better team than your, play "THE LONG BALL" tactics with formation 4-1-3-2.

I have noticed in the leagues that I am in that a lot of fairly new players seem to be dropping like flies after a few bad results once they sign on to manage a team. Many times this is because they g

Re: A Guide for Newcomers

i tried the play making style against an unmanaged 4-3-3 there average rating was 89 mine is 95 played 3-4-1-2 and i lost 2-1 at home. So is that my error by picking incorrect style of play? or just a freak result?

ratings doesnt guarantee good performances/it could be many reasons:cool:

even with a side that is strong all over the pitch? worst rated player in my first 11 is rated 94. I set up my tactics as described earlier in the thread. the team i played had 3 shots 2 on target i had over 20 shots with 11 on target. The stats were in my favour! i suppose i should just put it down to a freak result

Things happen, Blackburn beat Utd, Sunderland beat City, Villa beat Chelsea. Start worrying when the other team's stats (possession, shots etc) are way better than yours while your team is better. As long as the stats are in your favor I don't think you can doubt your tactics that much (unless you lose 4-0 of course :P).

yeah i totally agree, also could it be that i have changed to a formation and style of play that my side has not been use to? as i did use to play 3-5-2 at home and 4-4-2 away every game and i changed to a 3-4-1-2? surely as i have a quality team and squad, this should not really make any difference should it?

Re: A Guide for Newcomers

Hello,

I am a newcomer and happened to find this thread a couple weeks ago. I have been trying these styles and they are working really well, getting good results :)

Just wondering if there is anybody who has recently tried the long ball tactic. Obviously now you can not designate your goalkeeper as playmaker, and I don't know what I should do. Is it just to play the long ball without playmaker, or designate other positions (such as CB?) as playmaker? Let me know what you think!

Cheers:)

You can try a 4-2-3-1

Tactics:

Defensive

counter attack

Target man

That could help you get back on your feet as I am sure that the originalChelsea team can fit into that formation well.

Good luck anyways.

Re: A Guide for Newcomers

Please help me with my Porto. I'm really struggling this season. I have won the tittle on 3 previous occasions but this season is horrible I have one of the best squads in the league:

beztytuuamp.jpg

What will be the best system to play with this team?

On GK I play Casillas

RB is Ramos and Lahm

LB is Marcelo and Alba

CB's are Pique, Chiellini, Kompany and Hummels

Next I don't have too much CM/DM

only Mascherano, Modric and Fabregas(Barry is only to make money)

My AM's and Wingers are playing in the centre of the field or on wings.

I'd like to play 4-2-3-1 but this formation isn't for me since I don't have too much players to play on certain positions. I want to play one of formations between those: 4-4-2, 4-3-2-1, 4-1-3-2, 4-3-1-2, 4-2-4.

Which formation should I use and what player instructions.

Looking for your replys.

Cheerz.
