If you find you're leaving too much space behind your defence, try setting your centre-backs mentality to 'Ultra Defensive' or using a deeper defensive line.

When playing against a strong team, you may get some success by playing on the counter attack. This can be particularly effective when playing away from home.

When trying to hang onto a result, a good way to wind down the clock is to employ time wasting tactics in the latter stages of a game.

Defenders with low concentration are more prone to making costly mistakes in defence.

Strikers with low composure are more prone to buckling under the pressure and missing one-on-one opportunities to score.

New signings need time to settle in and gel with their new team-mates.

Too many new signings in a short space of time can upset the balance and rhythm of your team.

Foreign players with a distinctly different football cultural upbringing may take a while to settle into playing a different style of play.
