Hi all, new user here.

I'm looking for some help, as I have come to a complete dead end playing as Bognor Regis on Football Manager 2008.

I have tried to cobble together a decent side and get them to play in an attacking 4-4-2 formation with emphasis on getting the ball forward quickly (most of the squad are pretty pacy - even the defenders).

However, try as I might, I cannot:

a) Go a game without conceding at least two goals
b) Score. That's right, and every time one of my strikers gets it in the net it is (surprise, surprise) ruled offside.

So I don't know what to do. Every tactic I use (downloads or defaults) are totally useless and I might as well field 11 blancmanges as they'd play better than my players are doing at the moment.

I'm almost sure it's a conspiracy, as friends of mine who still play FM2008 are amazed at my bad luck and they have played my game and got the same results!

Speaking of results, my last two games were:

Selsey 4-0 Bognor Regis (two strikers sent off for, at worst, yellow card offences)
AFC Wimbledon 3-0 Bognor Regis (no shots on goal allowed - even when on target they somehow go wide...)

If there is anybody out there who can genuinely help, and not just fob me off with another tactic that couldn't cut hot butter in hell, then please inbox me and I'll send you my details. If you can send more than one tactic that works that would be great.
