Re: *Official Football Manager Discussion Thread*
i've gotten to the stage where im saving before games, waiting for the ridiculous result, then changing my tactics and trying again. there seems to be no difference. i set marking to the midfield, crowd the midfield with cattermole/vaughan/sess/johnson in a 4-4-2 flat, my players are nowhere to be seen and the opponents are just allowed as much time on the ball as they want. i play a deep line because cuellar and bramble are pretty slow, but have good marking stats. a shame that marking becomes non existent whenever an opposition player is near by. i had vs qpr a ball played long, cuellar goes near it, suddenly stops for no reason, ball goes past him, cisse gets onto it and makes it 2-2. ridiculous. my fullbacks of masilela and o'shea are good enough to contain the likes of a park ji sung or nathan dyer, but constantly get torn to shreds, even with man marking and a defensive setting. it just makes no sense. im tinkering all the time with my tactics, not drastically, but enough to where you should see changes in games. you don't. it just continues to be the same, an error riddled, mistake laden performance, every single time.
