Team Guide Template


*Basic overview of the club, recent history, the challenge that the save will present, and a general introduction the guide you’re writing.*

[h3]Finances & Budget[/h3]

*A rundown of the club’s current financial situation and the budget you will be set as manager, in relation to your expectations.*

[h3]Strongest Tactics[/h3]

*Analysing three different tactics you would suggest to use with this team, talking about the suitability of the tactic, how it fits the team’s philosophy and the effectiveness of these tactics.*

[h3]First 11 Positional Analysis[h3]


[b]Right Backs:[/b]

[b]Central Defenders:[/b]

[b]Left Backs:[/b]

[b]Right Midfielders:[/b]

[b]Central Midfielders:[/b]

[b]Left MidfielderS:[/b]

[b]Attacking Midfielders:[/b]


*As you can probably guess, this section of the guide is an analysis of every position in the team’s starting side, now that there is an understanding of which tactic to use. For every role in the line-up, you will need to give a briefing of the first choice, backup available and your opinion on who should start.*


*Highlight the areas where the team needs improving, and is weakest in, suggesting a player or two who could fill the gap in the side.*


*Summarise your experiences with the team, and your final opinions. Close the guide by asking for other people to comment on their experiences with this team and kindly ask for feedback, too.*
