Hey guy's I don't know about any of you but I am finding this years fm edition very frustrating!!!
how many of us have created a tactic that in theory should work, play beautiful football, create lots of chances with the players you have assembled etc?
How many of us have downloaded someone elses tactics after seeing their success storys and got played off the park?
I am sure I'm not alone in this, just recently I downloaded a wingback tactic (can't remember which one) started off well but faded quite quickly, I made some adjustments and this worked well for half a season then all of a sudden I struggled to win games? so I went back to basics and started again creating my own tactic and thought I had finally cracked it, I went on to win the league with my Newcastle team after being in 4th place and 7 pts behind Chelsea and was playing exactly how I wanted, pleased with my results I was going to upload them for others to try but thought I would try it over a whole season first, so far I won the comm shield against liverpool 3-1, drew with west ham 2-2, beat qpr 2-1, drew with liverpool 1-1, lost to man utd 2-0 and lost cl game at bayern munich 1-0, I know these results are not terrible but I can see the signs and how the team are playing is not the same as last season (not including comm shield), any ideas why this happens? surely you don't need to adjust you're tactics every season? once your players are used to playing a certain way surley that should stick (Barcelona, Ajax, Milan in real life).
Anyway, just wanted to hear from the community to see if this problem is widespread or just a few cases here and there, also if you have overcome such problems what did you change and why etc,
