Can`t believe how difficult 2017 game is and I go back to the Commodore days!!. sacked after 12 games as Grimsby manager now Crewe manager any advice? especially on tactics.
Yeah i've noticed that as well, it takes a lot more than good team cohesion to rocket up the leagues now. What tactics are you using right now? Personally I find not using anything too 'over-complicated' to be most effective, solid and well structured.
433 dm mid wide. Average results, 443 narrow bloody awful results. Technical advice i`m getting is dreadful both for Grimsby and Crewe.
Do you play with a lot of tactical instructions, e.g "Be more expressive" etc?
I did but have been cutting down on these. Its difficult to score or is it me?
The 4-3-3 is that with 3 centre forwards or 1 centre forward and 2 wingers?
1 forward and two wingers
My advice mate (if you've got the players that will fit)

Switch to a 4-4-2, keep it quite structured and if you've got one use a target man to partner an advanced forward. It may not necessarily be the most beautiful football but in my experience in the lower leagues they're the most effective tactics.

Hope this has been some what at all useful!
ok thanks I will give it a go.
