Guys, as goalkeeper I have Piet Velthuizen and Modou Nilsson as backup, in defense Gamberini, Kompany, a guy named Giacomini who's very good and Vermaelen as DM Freddy Guarin and per match I concede 2 3 goals at least, whichever the team! I don;t und why! I play short n narrow and quick.. my defenders are wanted by all the big teams but nothing I always concede so much! help me!! ask for more info if u need!
What year are you in?
try putting defense deep and your center backs on ultra defensive mentality, and your DM on slightly defensive mentality with closing down all over. Also put your center backs on man marking rather than zonal. Try it out for a couple of matches. Don't put all your efforts in defending because you will concede sooner or later, attack is the best defense:):)
if you want to win, when ur winning and theirs five mins left if they score one of em gay late goals, all u gotta do is gon on holiday befor the replay starts and then the goal doesnt happen.

I'm in the year 2014..hehehhehe
the tactics of the defenders are exactly like u said limited edition.. but i concede soo much! even more if I put 2 DM (the other 1 is Gragano, ok, but still) I even have Siniscalchi, if someone is playing i the year 2014 they can see he's very good, even the fans and the board are very happy i got him, but I often concede in corners even if I used the set pieces and put many of my players back and defensive mistakes (we have been drawing and losing forever but even in normal situation they forward of the opposition will come and dribble my defender shoot and goal!

setting your defenders and dm creative freedom on little should improve the situation
never play 2DM's in 4-4-2 formation.
also i will not tell you excactly what to do,just a couple advices:
1. It is not important how offensive formation looks,team still can be very good at defence :) think about that and you will find solution :) i did :)
2. The more time you have the ball,you have less chance of conceding.
3. Attack is the best defense.

and finally,you say you concede from corners a lot,well check your players,these with low height must not be in the penalty area,
and watch carefully there goals,there you will find easy solution, if you are conceding many goals from near post,just put there your best headers and jumpers.
Bole_ : never play 2DM's in 4-4-2 formation.

3. Attack is the best defense.

i disagree on both those points.

Attack is not the best defence.

And playing with 2 DM's in a 4-4-2 formation can be really helpful(if you play it right of course). but then again it comes to every tactic in the world if u play it right etc.

back to the attack and defence point.

Attacking is good, defending is good. But none of them are better than each other to make anything better.

In the end its all about the team and its work. the defenders need to do their job and the attacking players need to do their job.

And then a team should be there for each other. And if you have a great squad that can play AS A TEAM. then you dont have to worry about the defence or the attack.

for an example you can get all the tactics in the world correct. But in the end it will be the mentality that will be decisive.

I have another question then... what is the difference between Target Man and Playmaker? I used to choose as Target man a striker but on the Help it says he brings other players into play so it has to be like a Playmaker no??

Just so you know I got sacked from Napoli for enidng the league 16th and finishing runner up in the Italian Cup! and the next year Napoli was in the UEFA! without me!

he he it is ok to disagree.
i am just talking of my experience.
I played with weak Barnet,bring them to PL,than with England,Bayern and so on,and i never had some big result from just defending.
i am not talking not to give attention on defence, my advice is to look very closely on midfielders,because they are the most important for the attack,and of course for defence,but thing is,you can defend with just defenders,but you can not attack just with attackers,so i think mid's are very important for attack,and that is why i am talking to improve attacking skils.

also,about 2DM's ,YES it is ok to have 2DM's in 4-4-2 but IF YOU KNOW HOW TO MAKE THEM GOOD,and this guy is asking for some advice,so he is not good as you Red :)and of course i think it is better to stick of some basics.if you dont know how to pair them,they will disturb each other.
Deleted's avatar Deleted
give me some tips on how to pair 2 DM's please... the previous FM were much easier!!
hey man,why you even play FM08?
Wait for FM09.
Deleted's avatar Deleted
yeah meanwhile I play Fm 08 no.. can u explain me the difference between Target Man and Playmaker?? and what do you look at when you lay with 2 DMs??
he he.
Target man should be some tall player with good jumping and heading.If you use Target man,players will try to send long balls on him,and in many cases he manage to put down balls for your other players.He should be attacker.

PLaymaker should be some AM(CM) with good passing and decisions.team will try to pass the ball to him and he will organize the play.I sometimes give that role to my DM.

about DM's,it depends.i would put them arrows to CM,and modify mentality enough to ensure that they will not disturb your DC's, in short:Do not put them too defensive.
also if you use them for creating the play,they must go forward,so they must have good natural fitness and stamina,because they must run alot.Also they must have good passing.

one more thing about putting first 4-4-2diamond ahead of 4-4-2normal is that in diamond you need DM and CM or DM and AM or CM and AM, in every case diferent players.
but in 4-4-2normal you need the same type of players,good at every aspect.
and if you really want to play with 2DM's or 2CM's than,play over flanks.

at last,all these depends on your players,if you have players for 4-4-2,than play 4-4-2,and if you have good wingers,you can play 4-2-3-1.understand?
do not play formation because you like it,play it if you have players for it.
