Thanks mate. What exactly would you like tips on? Im sure you know all the good players. You just have to trust your scouting reports, and check the key stats yourself. Like for a poacher, you want them to be quick, agile, good balance, good composure and decent finishing. Not to mention decent off the ball skills too. Obviously if some are low, then you need to train them up.

Also only buy players that fit your team and your style! Never buy a player because theyre amazing, because they may disrupt your team. Like i am bug on teamwork, so most of my players will have 13+ teamwork. Those that dont, were bought in the first season when i really needed some good players. If you need a good BWM for example, try look to find players that can also fill in as a DM, so you dont have excessive amounts of players either.

Make sure you get the balance right between experience and youth. I have a lot of youth, and only a handful of old players. The youngsters are now growing up, and since they have played together for a long time, they gel very well. They have also gained a lot of experience, especially those that play regularly, like Toloi, Stegen, Digne, Rodriguez, Felipe Anderson and one of my best stars, Kadlec.

Also dont buy players unnecessarily. Give your youth guys a run too, but not all at once. So if its an easy home match, field 2 youngsters, but no more. This will give them vital experience too.

I hope this helps, though im not sure ive answered your question. If not, then give me a shout and tell me what you wanted to know :)
