Paul,

Just a quick question. If i cant find a player with TM as a preferred position what is the best position for me to play out of position at TM?

Would it be Playmakers?

Im still struggling to find a replacement for Malbranque and since putting him back in the team at TM over Donovan my form has changed for the better making me think its gonna be hard to replace him.

Could you give me a little insight to the TM position and maybe how i can work around it. Always been a fan of FAS and dont really want to find another tactic.

Any advice would be much appreciated.

Ross,

The extra stats sheet i get shows

TM - Tevez - B - 28
co86% hd70% sh87%

AE3 CO17:14 SP1 HD:1 TA:1 SH4 KN5 DR7 MM12:7 SW2

So from those stats, i would personally say that a player with good CO/SH/PA/KN/HD are the key skills to be looking for

Hope that helps.

Thanks Phil.

Ive been playing DY's at BW and that works really well, even if they have not got the preffered position of BW. so i assume its possible for another player to play well at TM however i seem to remember paul saying its a specialised position so thought i would just see if he could comment.

Hope he comes back on!

Thanks again mate

a DY can play at

DY
LB
LK
LH
RB
RK
RH

any other position he will lose a % or portion of his skills for the game unless he has a PP for it.

i think the best thing ross is that if you play players in the wrong position then make sure that the main skills for the position are top notch. i'd imagine your DY who is playing at BW has good tackling for example, otherwise he'd play pretty poorly i'd have thought. so, for the TM positon i'd look for the player in your team with the best combo of KN SH SP CO VI AE HD and use him there - the ones phil mentioned basically plus vision - think thats important tho maybe paul can confirm that

Stu,

Thanks for the reply but i slightly disagrre with what you have put. It all goe sback to when you told me you could list players for 2.5 x value and reality or unmanaged clubs would sign the players, umm, didnt work im afraid.

Will wait for Pauls final word on this as i need to know 100% rather than what people think is right if you see what i mean.

just so you know, paul said this about DYs (doesnt help your TM thing but he did explain the positions that DYs can play without a negative effect)

http://www.championship-football.net/t1044p427-week-8-processing

as for the values...double the resell worked for me before the changes to values (this is probably going back a while now though). i guess i got lucky. dont think i ever said 2.5 i only ever remember saying double. anyway its by the by because it no longer works and didnt work for you.

Stu,

Thanks for the link, that makes sense, your post above does not have BW at the end, thats why i questioned it. In terms of TL'ing players, im even struggling to sell some people for 500k which i think is bizarre.

Its interesting that i have been looking for a wingback and i might actually be able to play one of my DY's there! Why didnt i read that post!

Thanks again mate Smile

Ross,

You have to be careful when using dy's cause you will have to take there WD WT WA all into account, other he might be playing as a RW instead of a RK.
Aswell as there TA QU.

i know...there's a few things i've stumbled across in these 'turn processing' threads that i didnt know before. both me and rob thought DY's could also play in other centre mid positions without a negative impact but it seems that is not the case. its worth reading thru those threads cos paul does give out some really interesting insight, especially with tactics. you need a day to read through all that stuff though!

You're quite right on this about DY's and AM/PM/TM positions

I thought the same, and for a time in league 1 & 2, I got away with doing exactly what Ross is doing. DY's at AM & BW

I think you're probably doing as I did Ross and just 'getting away with it' at the moment as generally you're coming up against theoretically weaker opponents that yourself in the majority of weeks.

I can tell you now, you make the step up to the championship, and you need every bonus you can get your players hands on! Lol

Hmmmm i have John Obi Mikel doing suoerb as an AM but he came back this turn as a DY, I want it changed back as he is a holding midfield player who get a nose bleed if he get within ten yards of the half way line

Target Men...

Its a unique playing position in the game, similar to GK BW and CF but like those other positions any player can play there. To play well he will need certain skills esp control. Control is very important. But he'll also need agility, passing, heading and shooting, as well as vision and knowledge. He's your forward playmaker so he needs lots of skills.

If you dont have a PP=TM target man then play your best skilled player, as goes for every other position on the pitch, always try to match a players skills to his playing position.

Does that help ?
