Winning Tactics and Formations

I'm using a 4321 formation and not scoring many goals... any suggestions?

To make this tactic solid you will need to play two DMC's with a AMC in the middle in midfield. also play with an SC in the middle of the three strikers. I play with three SC's and they score bucket loads. I generaly play with anyone at the back as long as their in their natural position.

From the preset formations select 4-3-3 and remove all player runs.

Emphasis - Attacking
Passing - Normal
Tackling - Normal
Pressing - Yes
Offside trap - No
Counter Attack - No
Men Behind the Ball - No

Player instructions

Passing - All team

Tackling all team, except three midfielders who are set to HARD.

Pressing all set to yes except the four defenders and the goalkeeper.

Pass to - Everyone set to R/L/C

Set pieces (A) DL/DR Back, rest forward.
Set Pieces (D) Middle CM normal, Middle striker forward, rest back

Free role - All NO.

Forward runs - DL/DR, Middle CM and all three strikers yes. rest no

Run with ball - DL/DR, Middle CM and all three strikers yes. rest no

Hold up ball - All NO

Long Shots - Three midfielders yes, rest no.

Through Balls - All NO

Cross Ball - DL/DR yes, rest NO.

Marking - GK (none) DL/DR (Zonal) DC/DC (Man) MC/MC/MC (Middle CM Zonal, other two set to Man) FC/FC/FC (all none)

I recommend you put your best midfielder as central CM, pref a AMC. I played Brian Howard there and he scored 18 (which is good taking into consideration FMH09's lack of goals). Also put your best SC in the middle of the front three. Frazier Campbell played there for me and scored 22 (his shooting is rated 12 aswell so a guy with 20 could be lethal - who knows)

Try this one curtesy of Jambo Dave & a bit of tweaking by jjsreading1 (on Sports Interactive Forums)

3-5-2 (no editing)
balanced
short
normal
yes
no
no
no

passing - team
tackling - 3 CMs committed, rest set to team
pressing - GK and 3 CBs no, rest set to team
pass to - leave
set peices - leave
free role - ML, MR, CCM and 1 FC set to yes, rest no
forward runs - same as free role but select the OTHER FC
run with ball - exactly the same as free role
hold up ball - no
long shots - 3 CMs + the OTHER FC (forward runs)
through balls - no
cross ball - ML + MR
marking - CCB + CCM set to zonal, GK + FCs set to none, rest set to man

Use a midfielder with at least good shooting & dribbling stats for the middle of your 3 mc's & i usually change the players with zonal marking to man marking depending on the oppostion formation, & always use attacking style against weak teams when at home.

so far scoring alot of goals,
occasionaly conceding alot too but makes for exiting games

hope it works for you
