Want to win games?
Ok, after playing this game with lots of different teams and in several leagues I have realised the best team to win with is Liverpool F.C. They have a strong team to start with and a bit of spending money, plus the board doesnt expect you to win everything I.E. United or Chelsea.
I have decided to do this Hint/walkthrough because I am currently in my fourth season with L.F.C and have won 3 league titles 12 trophies and have only lost 16 games out of 260.
So heres some basic tips to start with.
1.Never buy a player older than 30 unless they are in very good form or are going to come on a bosman
2.Dont change formation every game it's good to stick with 1 formation for at least 6 games.
3.dont sell players just because you get offered a lot of money for them.eg. I get offers every month to sell gerrard, but he is indisposable.
4.dont sub players a lot they get depressed.
5.dont sell strikers if they are not scoring, check out the amount of assists they have made first. If this is high keep them.
GOOD PLAYERS TO BUY.
At the start of your first season always check for players with expiring contracts
1 Guzman-Juventus_is good for a free player and you will make money from selling him.
2 Nick hamann-Chelsea_I paid 340k for him and is a great developing player send him out on loan and the following season you will get twice as much as you paid.
3 Eugen Polanski-Monchengladbach_I paid 3.4 mil for him he is a great player after a season, making sure you bring him on for a few games.you will sell him on after a few seasons for about 6 mil.
4.Steven Taylor-Newcastle_3.8 mil and worth every penny has been a first team regular for 4 seasons.I frequently get offers for over 10 mil
5 Olivier Kapo-Juventus-Free-sold him on after a season for 9 mil
6 Jurgen Gjasula-Kaiserslautern_Paid 1.9 mil sold 2 seasons later for 5 mil
7Andres Dalessandro_portsmouth_wait a season then sign him on a bosman, will create and score goals .sold for 10 mil the next season.
8 Maniche-Chelsea_Bosman, sold on for 6 million
9james milner-Newcastle_Bosman, sold for 10 mil following season.
PLAYERS TO SELL.
Sell any reserve players over 22
The sale of all of these players in the first season should generate about 40 million,along with the money given to you by the club this should be plenty.
The best signings I have made have been.
Although the best players in the team are the ones you already have.
My current line up is:
MILITO AGGER TAYLOR RIISE
KAKA GERRARD ALONSO MESSI
Subs:CARSON MANCIENNE POLANSKI MASCHERANO FOWLER
Unused: ZIDANE CLICHY SERGIOGARCIA
Always play attacking 442 with attacking wingers Gerrard as captain and free kick taker penalties corners etc
Closing down : stand off
use zonal marking and offside trap.
Always play 3 pre season friendlies any less and your team arent ready any more and they will tire.
