I've just set the record for worst discipline in the FA cup ever and i've only just got to the first round (played 3 games). The previous being Man Utd. Thing is i have tried telling players to hold back when tackling but it just doesn't work. Any ideas?
The next time your player gets sent off, either give him an official warning or fine him some wages. This will increase your Discipline rating as a manager and should, hopefully, prevent your players from picking up too many cards.

Also, check what is the tackling mentality of your Assistant Manager. Sometimes, the Assistant Manager always likes to tackle hard. So, if you leave him in charge of games, or if you apply Assistant's Advice for Opponent Instructions, you may find that a lot of opponents have been set to "Hard Tackling", which could result in more cards.

Also, if you're really desperate, then set your tackling mentality (Team Instructions>>Advanced) to "More cautiously".

And finally, try to find if there are any regular culprits, i.e. if there are 2-3 players who pick up most cards. Go into Player Instructions >> Advanced, and set tackling to "Easy" or "More cautious" or whatever it says.

All the best, let me know if these worked for you! :)
I changed my tackling to more cautious for a game against Braintree to see how it went and i only got 3 yellow yards which is good for my team in one game lol. Shane Candsell-Sheriff got a yellow card though, suprise suprise. He's getting yellows all the time hahaha
Cool! :D

Try out the other options I mentioned too, and let me know if it works for you! :)
I remeber that one in my saves my team have getting 5 yellows card or more each game and it was really annoying beacuse lots of playperpppps were band from important matches. They stopped when I changed my tackling into cautious(ealier was default) and as Guridt said I gave warnings when someone got red card.
