    Bad Substitutions

    I have found that in a couple of recent matches that were tight games, I have subbed a defender and then almost immediately conceded a goal. This happened twice in my CL semi-final and cost me dear as those 2 away goals by my opponent were all he needed to progress on away goals. I think I'll steer clear of subbing defenders unless I'm cruising the game in future. I'm sure the guys who were not too happy about being subbed put a curse on their replacements. Anyone else had bad sub experiences ?

    I sub my best players when i have good result advantage to protect them from injury or cards, but few times opponent almost made comeback (from 3-0 to 3-2). You should sub players with worst condition and player who does most of mistakes (read match comments)

    I change my players only after min 70' and it's normal to your team when u change something to take sometime till they accomodate to each other.

    I generally do sub players with worst condition or worst performers and after 70 minutes and they're usually defenders. I guess it's just one of those things. Learnt my lesson today.

    I'm usually subbing wingers or MCs for condition. Wingers or Strikers for performance - don't have to think of subbing MCs for performance cos Ref usually sends them off for me.

    Ofc I stand ready to replace any player if required - the above just reflects those most often subbed.

    but with little action. I am pleased to know that I am not the only one to comment on it.

    I sometimes concede goals in the 1st half and the 2nd half to avoid this I try to play better than the other team !!!!!!!!!!! It dosnt always work (sad ) subs dont worry me I never do them except maybe injuries or strikers .

    Got to say sometimes I even score when making them so either I'm lucky or playing you Dave lol


    Ps my avatar picture is Rowland !!!!!!!!!!!

    Sometimes it works, I change depending on the formation I want and if I do keep the formation I change the tiring player which includes the defence
