Blue Square South To Europe (Welling)

By Updated on Mar 02, 2010   4756 views   2 comments

I have just started to play FM10. For the first time ever, I have decide to write a blog to keep you up to date of how’s its going and for you to help me out.
I started as unemployed with only Sunday league experience using England, Spain, Italy, Germany, France, Russia, Romania, Ukraine, Portugal, Holland, Turkey, Greece, Switzerland, Denmark and Scotland. With all leagues playable. This gives me a player database of 74,000.

I have decided to play as Welling in the Blue Square South League in England.

Welling History

Founded in 1963, Welling United are a semi-professional club. The club play their home games at Park View Road and possess fairly basic training facilities and a basic youth setup. The Welling reserve team play their games at Gay Dawn Farm. The club is affectionately known as The Wings. Although The Wings are enduring a twenty-three year barren spell, having not won a competition since 1986, the club still have a history of which they can be justly proud. Welling won the English 7th tier for the only time in 1986.

When I got the job with Welling I could not set up my objectives but in my head I think aiming for promotion in my first season would be brilliant and get my career
off to a good start.

My first job was to decide how to set up my team. Most English teams seem to set up 4-4-2 but I thought I would do this slightly different seeing as I’m an Arsenal fan, so I went 4-3-1-2 (even though FM calls it 4-4-2).

The next important job was how we will play the beautiful game. Would it be attacking or defending? I thought why not a bit of both. So I went for a simple back four, two full back with the support duty and the two centre backs defending. The midfield three I went with two wingers on the attack duty (yes just like Arsenal) but the single centre midfielder as a ball wining midfield with the defend duty, the attacking midfielder on a support roll so he can come back to turn it into a normal 4-4-2 when defending. The two central stickers have different rolls, one of them is a poacher and the other is a deep lying forward all with attack duty. The team tactics I will be using are below on the picture.

    lower league management is what the game's all about for me (single player anyway). there's nothing more satisfying that getting your home town club all the way to the premiership and beyone.

    If you're interested in writing anything for then get in touch! starting a piece on FM players in the real world, would love to get someone like you to write it.
