i have a gud 4-4-2 formation tht works really well i was top of the league all the first half of the season but went down hill from there. 1 thing tht seemed to alwways come up was an inability to pass and i dont know why i went to short passin and tried to slow the game down a bit but tht didnt work and wonder what i was doin wron n e ideas??
Can you tell us any more info like the players you are using, mentality, team strengths, etc.

still tryin with man utd we are talkin in my first season im usin vander sar most of the season i used neville at right back, evra at left back n o'shea n brown in the middle occasionally rotatin with vidic and ferdinand in midfield i have ronaldo nani/giggs hargreaves anderson/scholes tevez and rooney sometimes berba i play 4-4-2 with my wingers switchin and my forwards switchin my wingers runnin forward playin as wingers hargreaves playin as a defensive midfielder and anderson playin as an attackin midfielder usin preset settings but not havin andrson quite as attackin as the presets i played really well only let in 4 goals upto christmas but wasnt scorin many though rooney n tevez got over 20 each by end of season. was playin slightly direct passin and fairly deep defenders. but as i sed b 4 after christmas we jst went sloppy with passin tht combined with unable to bring a striker to score goals in jan window cost me every comp. so can u help sos its long winded.
So the problem mainly is sloppy passing. Maybe you should try a short passing style with a quick pace. Man Utd has fast players so having short, quick passes in the midfield could help you open up the opposition while keeping possession. Since you also rely on your wingers for attack, try making your full backs support them by making them run forward often but keep the mentality to normal. Having someone in the midfield, who is good on the ball, hold up the ball might help as well.
