Hey guys, so I've opened this thread to post some info on my Chelsea save as I don't have enough time on my hands to go into much detail as I used to before in my story threads. If anyone needs any info/screenshots on any Chelsea players or anything just let me know. If anyone has any good advice as well just fire away too.
In regards to tactics I normally start with a 4-1-2-2-1 formation with two centrebacks, two fullbacks, an anchor man infront of the defence. Two central midfielders, one deep lying playmaker and a box to box midfielder. Two inside forwards on each wing and a striker up front. I set the strategies to Fluid, Counter Attacking, Short passes, More Expressive Creative Freedom, More Pressing and cautious tackling.
Season 1 : 2012/13
Kept all the Chelsea squad and sent out all the youngsters between 18 & 21 out on loan for the season to gain match experience apart from Eden Hazard, Oscar & Victor Moses. Brought in four players in total, two strikers for the future, and two German midfielders to improve the squad as below. Will post some stats and competition progress later on in the season.
Zakaria Bakkali 16 year old Striker from Belgium, joined our U18s from PSV for 500,000 pounds.
Ademilson 18 year old Striker from Brazil, joined from Sao Paolo for 5 million pounds.
Sven Bender 23 year old Defensive Midfielder from Germany, joined from Dortmund for 14 million pounds.
Lewis Holtby 22 year old Midfielder from Germany, joined from Schalke for 21 million pounds.
Although I have made four signings this season, I have also offered contracts to the current Chelsea lads and will look at keeping them if they want to stay. As the seasons go by I will try and focus on integrating the U21s into the first squad rather than buying more players where possible.
