The Results


Team Results over the season

Danny Ings was Top scorer in the Premier League (28 goals) and in "Team of the Year"
Michael Obafemi was Young Player of the Year, European Golden Boy, Irish U21 player of the year.

-> As mentioned before i managed to score 91 goals.
Your forwards, in case of my save are responsible for 57 goals!
Only Downside, if you like play like me with young talents you concede also goals, in my case 52.

I know that my explanation on this tactic is "bad" or "very tiny".
But i have tried to make something that works for me, so maybe also for other manager around the world.
For the last years i was always using a tactic from the website and i was sick of it.

I hope some off you might enjoy it.

FEEDBACK is always welcome.[/img]

    what transfers did you do to create the funds to sign these players as there is basically no transfer or wage budget available?
