I just thought id add some advice to any fellow Wednesday fans or anyone who starts a new save with swfc. It has become apparent over the last few fm's that either the game has made Wednesday rubbish or im just rubbish. So I decided that this year im going t make it work and conclude it was just me being rubbish. I decuded to start the season with a 4231 formation as there is a lack of strikers at the club. However it became apparent that this was useless at the least. Lost 6 out of first 7 including a defeat to Northampton in the 1st round if the cup. So I changed it to a 442 with the 2 wingers pushed up with a counter philosophy, and with instructions to hassle opponents, get stuck in, look for overlap push higher up, and quick tempo. Whilst it dies leave us short sometimes in the centre of midfield it doesnt seem to cause too much problems. I went 8 games unbeaten winning 7 once I changed to this tactic. The team I play is
Kirkland (gk)
Buxton (fb) llerra (cb) Gardner (cb) helan (cfb)
Mcabe (dlp) semedo (bwm)
Antonio (w) maghoma (w)
Nuhiu (af) savic (p)

It seems to work and palmer is an able understudy to semedo and jj for the wing. Im using youth team players as cover for strikers.
Any comments welcone. Thanks hope it helps. Rib x
Interesting choice there risky. The 4-4-2 you use is a common one found in opposition come the mid season in the championship, in my experience with Forest anyway. May I suggest using a RIGID play style. That way the team keep shape. This can be very effective when playing against stronger teams, or playing away. Then at home of when favourites, mix it up a little. The 4-5-1 is a very solid formation with inside forwards and allowing the full backs to support the attacking moves. Can be a great way to overload the opposition midfield when in possession.
