    Offense:

    Do not waste a single possession. You should always aim for at-least a shot on target during a possession.

    Defense:

    Read the field as you would from your opponents eyes. And if you can't, start practicing it. This ties in with predicting your opponent and baiting him.

    Experiment with different formations until you get one that suits your style of play.

    Don't pull your defenders out of position. Use your midfielders for defending where you can.

    Same could be said for players... Learn their traits and take time to utilize

    In addition to this, know your players WF/Skills rating before you get into the game. Know which is their preferred foot, how strong their WF is, what skills they can pull off. When you know your own players, that is one less thing distracting you from the field of play.

    Mostly a formation like 41212 starting. Just use some strength in the back. passers in the middle, pacey wingers and 1 pacey striker and a targetman for ex..

    and try things out.. Also you could play first offline some matches so you can use to everything..

    How are you losing, you can't finish, you cant get to goal you concede too many? You need to play the game to get better. Learning how to defend is how I started to get better, then how to get to goal either with build up or other means (long ball or sprinting) you will need to know how to do it all so you can defend against it and now I am working on finishing. Practice, practice practice

    Thanks everyone will try a few things.

    Been trying to play down the wings but not scoring much from my crossing.

    Everybody seems to be able to surround my players in an instant so get very little time to think about my move.

    Can't seem to cut inside and get shots away with my wingers as everyone seems pretty good at tackling

    yea, the auto-tackle is strong in 15 and wing play and crossing are very toned down...

    maybe try 4-1-2-1-2 or 4-1-2-1-2(2) and play more up the middle vs. a crossing game if that's not working for you...
