Wow. You're pretty awesome to write all that just for my benefit. I'm going to try it out right now.

Many thanks, mate!

No worries mate. Its all about helping each other! Lemme know how it goes ok? :)
Well, my team are scoring better and playing with more confidence (3-0 loss to Man City notwithstanding, but hell, that was expected). The only thing is that they seem to be injured more often now.

Hmm maybe a need for some better physios. That will help the conditioning of players. And the injuries will reduce once they get used to the heavy training regimes

I thought we would be in for a tough game once we had conceded so early. But our players didnt worry too much, played their football, and soon were creating chances. Wickham was quiet today and a little disappointing, but Kadlec pulled of a brilliant cameo coming of the bench and scoring 2 quickfire goals. I was equally impressed with Ji Dong-Won, who really has been playing some good football recently.
Hey can anyone shed any advice as to how to get the best out of Ross Barkley? He cant seem to get a rating of higher than 6.9, and its getting rather frustrating now!
Where do you play him now
#44575 nlmh : Where do you play him now

Play him in the middle as either a CM or a BWM

try playin him behind striker as attacking midfielder or advanced playmaker or play him in cm as a advanced playmaker aswell see if that helps

maybe try and change the formation or tactics perhaps and if he still gets a rating of 6.9 loan him to another prem club and see how he performs. i'm sure he will be a great player for you

Bolton probably should have won considering the chances they had. N'Gog was dangerous upfront, and my defenders couldnt handle him. But Ji-Dong Won put in another great performance and saved the day. He probably will be getting more first team starts after a performance like that!

Vrsaljko out for 7-10 days with a gashed arm

Tough match considering we played nearly half the match with only 10 players. Giuliano has been brilliant from day one, performing well consistently. It helping to the team forward!

A game epitomised by crappy defending and great attacking. The show was run by Kadlec and Felipe Anderson, who were sublime. The issue with defence though is rather more disconcerting as we are regularly leaking goals.
