    I sold all my wingers and am going for a 4-1-3-2 / 4-1-3-1-1

    It's not working in league 2 :-(

    FM rearranged 4 of my matches due to an fa cup semi final. My schedule of games that week went: Sunday, Monday, Wednesday, Saturday. Won the first three then got knocked out the cup. I would have been pissed off if that run of games cost me the league title but fortunately my under 18s side managed to scrape a win to lift the championship trophy. Also West ham fucked up so that helped too

    Also if my assistant tells me one more time that "peter crouch is winning everything in the air today" I'm going to kill him. No shit, Owen.

    For the last three FM's I've been playing with two wingers and absolutely battering people, so I don't get all the 'wingers don't work' nonsense.

    THIS SPACE FOR RENT

    I usually play with a 451/ 433 variant with inside forwards or wingers. Still only up to league 2 level but works well. Is a tendency to receive the odd battering by a hoofing team, but that is also because the average age of my squad is about 21!

    Got four back-to-back promotions using a 442. I haven't had a single job offer in that time. :/

    Are you guys saying that 442 is not the only formation? I wasn't aware of that.

    Just to say this is the first FM that I've gotten into since about 2007. Been playing Cm 01/02 for the last 4 years, yet it's not even the classic mode that's done it (haven't tried it yet).

    Starting with no club and the second worst reputation, and absolutely loving it down in the Blue Square South (might be North... can't remember). Havant and Waterloo defying all expectations at the top... also, wingers definitely work heh

    @graysonavich

    I think it does that to make the game more interesting.

    I've currently got 3 strikers on a long term injury, and 1 striker on loan, leaving me with only one fit striker

    had to adapt the formation to use an AM instead :-(

    Wish I bought it when it was 12. Buy them most years and end up only playing for a few hours though

    Dont kid yourself, Jimmy. If a cow ever got the chance, hed eat you and everyone you care about!

    I just play AMR or AML as wingers. Always seems to work for me.

    the current match engine is FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCKED, long shots, wing/full backs that cannot defend, no trough ball, just bugged to shite, the SI forums melted down over it, fixes are on their way, as it is right now it's unplayable

    The one thing that really bothers me is the defenders' inability to defend crosses. I'll let in at least one or two goals in all my matches from a cross where my defence is positioned all wrong and the opposition have a ton of unmarked players just waiting to receive it.

    I've tried countless advices from the SIgames forums, but none seem to work.

    Weird, I have a couple of defenders who continuously win all their headers, its only set pieces they struggle with. 30 goals conceded in a 46 match season, that's some record! Especially pleased as one of the kids is now 21 and someone i'd found myself :-)

    Season 3 done now, finished 2nd after being in the playoffs all season, but 5 wins out of 5 right at the end saw me leapfrog Walsall on the last day of npower league 2!

    next stop league 1!

    Not sure what to do with my formation, 4-1-3-1-1 seemed to work OK for the most part, but without any wingers available it was a bit limited for changing around if I needed width.

    Most of my team returns to their own clubs now, as all on loan :-(

    I've pretty much hammered every FM game since CM 97/98, but the last few years I have played less and less due to their buggy match engine. There always seems to be one or two major issues that completely ruin it and there's no point in trying to work around them because once they patch it you have to change it up again.

    It would be nice to get the game with a more stable match engine for once, rather than having to spend multiple patches beta testing for them.

    Hopefully the next patch will be good, because even though I seem quite negative... I can appreciate that it's currently close to being very good, but sadly a few issues can kill it for me.

    Yeah I concede A LOT of goals through crosses, particularly my fullbacks allowing players to run right up to the line and smash low crosses in for tap ins. Probably 75-90% of my goals against come that way

    Goalkeepers do some weird shit. I had a game where my center back passed back to the keeper and the keeper, instead of kicking it, sort of danced infront of the ball whilst it slowly rolled into the back of the net.

    I'm so bad at the game this year. No matter what I do my team seems to underperform. Not sure what I'm doing wrong really, cos I'm never normally this bad in previous versions.

    That's been happening in fm for years. Think it was 09, I got knocked out of the world cup after an incident like that.

    Also is there a way to stop full backs doing that thing when they panic and clear the ball high, to the middle of the pitch straight to an opposition player? Like a clear to flanks setting rather than clear right into the space between midfield and defence and concede a goal

    Grr I've got a day off with nothing to do so I figured I buy this and spend the day playing it. Trouble is, the cheapest download I can find is 23. The disc is only 18, but that's no good to me. Fucksake.
