Hi. I'm managing Southampton in my third or fourth season I forget, and doing pretty well, we've won the EPL once, league cup twice, Community Shield, and gotten to the final of the Champions League.
However, one issue that has been a consistent problem through-out my rise is the fact that I seem to be conceding a LOT of goals. I would really prefer to score one goal, and then lock the game out, rather than have to end games 4-3 or 5-4, which is how a lot of them seem to end at the moment.
It isn't really THAT big of a problem since I'm meeting the board objectives at the moment (play youth and get a top 4 finish), but I really feel I could achieve a lot more if I wasn't so easy to score against.
This is the league table at it stands at the moment, as you can see I have the highest goals conceded out of the top 10;
This is my tactic at the moment, however my players have tweaked instructions too, but none of which should change the tactic overly;
These are each of the players that I use mainly in my starting 11, the two CBs are both apparently good, but judging by the number of mistakes they make per game, I'm guessing they're not;
Scoring goals isn't a problem, last season I had the most goals scored at the end of the league. I also had the highest goals conceded outside of the relegation teams >.>
Any help is appreciated.
