@Smiff Until now, 13 matches, 8 wins, 3 draws, 2 loses. 21 scored, 10 conceeded (6 of them in 2 matces, 1 against ManU and 1 complenancy league match). Iam Panathinaikos and so far this tactic was exactly what i wanted. A realistic solid tactic to base my team, were two banks of four will defend good and two world class players upfront will make the difference.
I choose my WMs (its evident that same goes with my CMs) to be like attacking wing backs so that they defend well and have more chances of winning the ball within your tactic and OIs instructions.
Only problem i have is easy scoring but truth is i like that so that i can interfeer with things. No big changes. Substitutions, having a player with really good free kicks (Lucas Olaza), teamtalks. Only two changes i made two times was my CML in DML position in acrucial match i had to deal with AMC and setting my DLR in defend duty in a derby match were i had to face attacking AML/R and later on 3 Strikers.
I will deal with this by buying a really good pair of playmaker / striker.
Schalke top. Underdogs are usually just promoted teams or media prediction has them really low.
Edit: It can also vary from game to game, if you play against bayern you will be considered underdog with basic schalke team.
I had a good first season as you see which led to promotion.
I made a number of signings on free transfers and loans to add some depth.
The biggest issue I've found is financially as despite being £30k under my wage budget we still lost over £700k over the season.
Hi there Mr L,
I'm not savvy enough to contribute articles on the finer points of the game, I rely on you guys for that, but if you or your crew need a proofreader I'm more than happy to help out. Not that you seem to need one, but I would be happy to chip in if help in that area is ever needed.
