SeanKelly - if you are running through Steam just make sure that you are connected to the interwebs and have FM set to auto update...the most recent should be 13.1.2 although that one didn't make any match engine changes (which SI have said are coming although not soon).

Oh, and if you still find yourself struggling don't be afraid to switch to FM Classic. It is both a faster game and more forgiving...not easier per se but you don't have to micromanage your team as much.

quote constantplanck
Make no mistake, this game is a lot harder than in year's previous. There are no killer tactics and micromanaging every detail of your club is rewarded.

It sounds to me that you are having two major problems that aren't helping...one, you are simply switching things around too much and two, that you are probably defending too aggressively. Team cohesion is a real pain in the arse this year, I don't take my training off of "Cohesion/Very High" until around the three month mark of the season and I almost never juggle tactics or team sheets for the first two months. Essentially pick a tactic and a squad and go for it. Two, aggressive pressing defense has worked for the past four or five FMs but this year if you attempt that your backline still stands around mesmerized until they give away a penalty with a stupid foul, try standing off more and playing a rigid backline with one aggressive stopper in front of them to break up careless attacks and to hound the opposing midfield.

Plus you should also make sure that you are on the latest patch, I conceded goals for fun on the beta and the initial release but the latest patch has turned my tactics into juggernauts.


Thank you very much! Do you know where I can get the latest patch?

I have started games with West Ham, AC Milan, Celtic and I'm now currently fuming over my Chelsea save... I have been major FM fan since the first game and I have never faulted any of them until this years!

I concede goals for fun playing any tactic and it doesn't matter if I've set my team up to Attack, Control, Counter etc! With my Chelsea team I have played Reading (H) and Aston Villa (A) and both times i have been 2-0 up at halftime and then drew 2-2 at full time!

I can't win or keep a clean sheet on any save! On my AC Milan save I played 6 Serie A games and conceded 5 penalties and had 5 players sent off... I can't understand why this keeps happening.

Can anyone clarify or even let me know that this is not just happening to me?

thanks
