Always up for hints and tips following my disastrous tender. Currently hanging on to my position, just.I have started a career as Boro manager and its going swimmingly. 2nd in the league after 12 games; 9 wins, 2 defeats (Blackburn and Watford away) and 1 draw (2-2 at Sunderland after being 2-0 up). Got knocked out of the Carabao Cup after a 3-1 home defeat to Sheffield United. Of course, Archer scored. The undoubted highlight was an 8 (Eight) 2 win at Coventry 2nd game of the season. Rogers and Izzy Jones are my tops scorers at present with 5 each.
I am aware of some basic tactical hints and tips if anybody is interested? They seem to work quite well for me.
Obviously alot depends on your formation but here goes:Always up for hints and tips following my disastrous tender. Currently hanging on to my position, just.
Is it possible with the newest version for a team like Boro to win the champions league or is it realistic and they can't/won't be able to compete financially?
The only formations I use are 4231 and a variation of 343 (3 centre backs, 2 conventional wing backs, 2 segundo volantes, inverted wingers with a striker). I've never really had much success with a 433, and as Boro on the new game with have McGree, Jones, Greenwood and Rogers who are all our better players, so playing with a number 10 is essential.
The only thing that's a shame is that Greenwood, who's been unbelievable up front, has signed a new contract while I've been waiting to have 1.5 million available to trigger his buyout clause.
Wingback on support, inverted winger attack, segundo volantes both on support. If i'm chasing a game I will change one of them to attack but only when I'm chasing the game.Do you have your wingbacks / inverted wingers / segundo volantes on support or attack?
