Watford have signed Jake Livermore, Luke James and Jeremy Boga

and it'll be interesting to see if this week's review of Valero Borja is good enough to get him promoted to the first eleven in place of Mikel Arteta, which could allow Jamie to swap Arteta out for Joe Cole who he could then play at lefthalf and strengthen his team in that area. But i'm sure jamie has his own plans.

28 players means the chairman is again on his back but thats due to the three new guys which i'm sure can be sorted fairly quickly.

Chairman on the training ground whatever next ?

No plans to let Arteta go, especially for Joe Cole( would've bit their hand off for that deal 3 or 4 years ago tho)

I'm confused here, never heard of him!

He's at Ancona in the game?

If we keep playing like we did last night against Donnie Rovers then we have no chance of staying up so u won't have to blame Pompei!

Young lad at City IRL, played in Carling Cup this season. Decent prospect.

i scouted him a few turns ago,was going to swap him in, but he dropped down my priority list as sorting my disjointed wage structure became more important.

he wasnt with u then - a rare and pleasent surprise Razz

might go back for him finally if hes still kicking about

Ive tweaked the SLO tactic slightly and it can now be played with two playmakers PMP2 or two anchormen ALAR.

Ones obviously better defensively and the other will be better going forward, but its another choice for you to make and if like Stuart you want to play with wingbacks you no longer need to have 6 players in midfield which certainly unbalances your team.

so the formations for SLO 352 will be

GK CLCCCR LKALARRK ( DY or BW or AM or MG ) STCF

playing a PM in the 352 formation will confuse things.

Also Paul, you mentioned that players were man marked could you many enlighten me and most managers to how affective that was too my players. pros/cons ?

Man Marking ensures that an opponent is tackled by your chosen player rather than a player chosen by the system, so you can match up the best opponets against your best tacklers, gives you a better chance of breaking up the opponenst play, but on the downside the man-marker is not available for much else except his marking duties and can be pulled out of position.

For instance Mark used Kolarov to manmark Walcott so Kolarov would have been the one tackling Walcott whenever he got the ball, but on the downside Kolarov wont not be marauding up to the penalty area looking to shoot.

He also used Vidic TA 9.5 HD 9.5 to mark Tevez AE 9.5 HD 9.5 so by doing this he is ensuring that he always has a reasonable chance of getting the ball from Tevez as both players are evenly balanced on these skills. Tevez does have a further advantage as he can also use his TK 9.5 to avoid tackles as well as his agility and Vidic's KN 8.5 gives Tevez a bit of an advantage here, but generally he's got him as covered as he can be.

I think that gives you an idea of how effective mm can or cant be ?

Vidic marked Tevez Coleman marked Malouda and Kolarov marked Walcott.

Arsenal created 8 chances to 2 but had to rely on a last minute goal from the departed Tevez, so a mixed game I'd say, plenty of chances and possesion against the leaders but only Koscielny doing well in defence and that nearly scuppered you.

Paul, i've noticed youve been talking about defenders playing badly by coming out of defence to play the ball etc is this the case for me or is it just cause i have a shocking CB??
thanks.

for the game against newcastle your Cb matchup went like this...

CL koscielny TA 9.5 HD 9.5 KN 8.0

CR Djourou TA 8.0 HD 8.0 KN 8.0

ST Giovani AE 8.0 HD 7.5 TK 8.0

S2 Balotelli AE 9.0 HD 9.0 TK 8.0

so you can workout the matchup results from those figures, all the time Koscielny was doing the tackling you would have been with the upper hand, Djourou would have had the slight upper hand in the air against Giovani but not Balotelli.

On the field of play ST and S2 move around alot so some of the time you would have been good other times not. You couldnt really ask your CBs to mm either cos Mark was playing with 3 DYs which would of torn your defence to shreds had your 2CBs been mm.

another slight tweak ive made is to force players to look for strikers before choosing a non-striker to pass to when they get in a position to make a visionary pass, this will increase the importance/involvement of strikers in and around the box. something they do need.

paul....is there any possiblity that you 'might' be able to bring back the 2 CF option? obviously i'm imagining here it would need some sort of tweak to lower the effectiveness of 2 CF's since it was out-performing most forward combo's when we last had the option.

there are teams in real life of course that do play 2 CF's (stoke with crouch and cameron jerome is one that springs to mind). any chance of it making a comeback?

I was wondering the same thing Stu?. Since I was forced to stop using 2 x CF's, I've had to alter tactics and my ST just isnt involved at all..yet when I drop the ST in favour of a DY, things go pear-shaped...

Paul, would the CF & F2 not just patrol the inside left and the inside right chanels? as ST and S2 do? just higher up the pitch?.

He wont be a happy boy when reading it, saw Messi's rating of 95 and thought you must have been a little bit lucky!

Just noticed Pato played as DY instead of Schweinsteiger! And he got MOM! Shocked
