Used this with West Ham for 10-20 games.

Played 16
Won 5
Drawn 9
Lost 2

Not bad I guess, would probably work with better teams, such as Arsenal and Manure.

Used it at home and beat Pompy 6-0 and then West Ham 2-1
But i used it away to Fulham (who are bottom) and lost 3-0.
Good home tactic - Bad away.

just a bit of an update for you...

Newcastle 7-3 Chelsea
Bolton 2-2 Newcastle
Villareal 1-4 Newcastle (Chmps Lge Group D)
Newcastle 3-1 Charlton
Portsmouth 0-6 Newcastle (Martins and N'Zogbia hatricks)

sitting nicely at top of the league atm, and no signs of dropping the current form. M.Owen did pick up a 3 week injury against Charlton, but Martins wont stop scoring so im not bothered.

oh and for those interested...my first team line-up..
A.Boruc (swapped from Celtic for an unhappy S.Given)

S.Carr
C.Babayaro
S.Taylor
G.Pineda (Picked up for 2.5m at end of first season)

Mendonca (300k signing from Valente)
S.Parker
C.Nzogbia
M. Gamst Pederson (3m from a relegated Blackburn)

O.Martins
M.Owen

There is "use playmaker" option ticked. Who should i use as playmaker? AMC or MR they both have freerolers. Or no one?

EDIT: And whats the point with those position changes? They only switch those positions at Half-Time. Does that help something or just for fun.

EDIT: It changes my striker to middlefieder in half-time. Whats the point for that in every game.

Im getting really frustrated with this tactic because it changes the players positions. The whole midfield changes and the striker sometimes changes to the left wing or the attacking midfield role.

Anyone else experience this, or is it just me?

Not really.

I was beating WATFORD 2-0 at HT and looking comfortable. Decide to go for a piss and i left the game running. I come back and i have lost 4-2, Berbatov is in midfield, Carrick is upfront, Rooney is on the left and Giggs is on the right. :fume:

Sorry mate, do not like this tactic :| I always seem to be conceding goals against average opposition every game and I never seem to score more than 2 goals a game. Plus the whole rotation system leavs your midfielders as a striker when they can't even finish :(

If you actually watch Man Utd play, they do indeed rotate SOME of their players, but It's only the front 3 attacking midfielders. I use a formation closest to that of uniteds i can find, by playing a 4-2-3-1 with wide wingers. (screenshot below) Depending on the opposition and Home/Away I change passing from short to direct, and Ronaldo, Rooney, and Giggs (AMR,AMC,AML) swap positions.

Using a large quantity of something you don't need (too many players swapping) is a childish thing to do, and any good manager knows that if you want to suceed, it's the fine tuning that often works the magic.

Good work though and keep up with the friendly banter :D

This tactic is fantastic, the way the midfielders and strikers switch positions the opposition's defenders have absolutely no chance of keeping track of their man, and if they do, they are right out of position.

I played Estona (not the best team i know, but...) and beat them 5-0 by the first half.

Five stars mate and well done on creating such a great tactic. :clap:

Depends on which players we're talking about. You might see Ronaldo play wide ;left and Giggsy right occasionally. Rooney might come deep, but Gary Neville never plays striker.
