Is it just for me or are arsenal not good in footy manager? i can;t seem to get a fromation to suit all their attacking players... any ideas?
Probably just you im afraid. Arsenal are pretty consistant in all my games, 3rd - 4th, scrapping for top spot a lot.
Initially I'd play 4-2-3-1, Arsenals strength comes from the sheer amount of creative talent in midfield, so have someone like Rosicky supporting VanP, with very attacking wing play. I'd use Fabregas behind these to make the most of his passing and creative ability. He can also be moved up behind the striker as a very tidy playmaker.
4-4-2 works too, depending on your style. Try gettin Walcott to beat the offside trap, and put him up front as a poacher. He may not be the best finisher but he'll get so many chances atleast one has to go in.
Consider purchasing a new CB and a target man (Edin Dzeko?) to make up for some weaknesses front and back.
