Should I play my reserves/tyouths in Europe to ensure Premier League status? (13 votes)
Been using a flat back four, a defensive mid, two central midfielders with attacking duties, two wingers-cum-forwards, and YAYA SANOGO upfront!
Tactics;
used a 'Counter' philosophy with Zonal Marking. I also set my corners up so they are always in-swinging and aimed at the 6yard box with my best aerial player set to 'Mark Keeper'... best longshot player set to 'Lurk outside area'... scored MANY MANY goals from corners with this setup!

Finished the season 5th, which I believe is a decent achievement given the budget and players at my disposal, I had to offload to purchase YAYA but what a player! still in his teens but he scored 22 goals in all competitions, and his attributes have SKYROCKETED as the game has progressed ( BIG TIP - BUY YAYA SANOGO, CHEAP (APPROX £2M, 6'4, EXCELLENT PROSPECT BUT CAN MAKE AN INSTANT IMPACT! )

Heres a screenshot of the final table in my 1st season in charge of the Swans....



...im halfway through season 2 and i'm not doing too good! mid table at the moment and i'm finding that Europe is becoming a problem with the small squad i have. I am considering sacrificing a cup run in Europe to concentrate on the League as i need to ensure relegation isn't on the radar... will post more pics soon!
