i guess this is old news for alot of people... but i have until now been very carefull when it comes to the halftimetalk... but in the last three games I've realized how wrong that is, especialy when you have starplayers on your team... torres didn't score first half, he had about 6.9 rating... mascherano and gerrad had about the same... after telling them off in halftime, using " declear your anger at his prefoarmence", Torres scored twice in two of the games, and a hattrick in one of them... both gerrard and mascherano was rated over 8.5 in all three games... and the games weren't some nocompetitions against championsshipteams... one was CL quaterfinal against Juve, one was FA later stage against Everton and the last one was a leugegame against Tottenham (they've been runnerups in the leuge after me 2 years i a row)... so for those who have been afraid to show rage, fear no more
team-talk is VERY important in this game.
however i have a system that works quite well:
0-6.5 -> anger
6.5 -> 7.0 disappointing
works like a charm for me.
with the addition of "i expect a win" before every match.
