Just took over as Blackburn manager, and have been reccomended Wesley Sneijder's younger brother. Who looks class and cheap. Cha-Ching.

Is this on 08?

I might be Rovers, but you'll do better because of the game.

I'm obviously the better manager.

Nah 09.

The fans are asking if I want to buy Damien Duff. With his wages the answer is no. Not sure how to tell them this.

Break it to them gently 'barb is that one of the new things in the game the fans say who they want. That's pretty cool.

I was only messing, really. And another excellent Jose/Sarkozy point (they even rhyme a little!) there, Barb.

I'm gonna go with 4 at the back, a dm, with a central mid running forward, to wide am's and two strikers, set myself to all out attack, and to tell with the consequences. I'm from the Ossie Ardellies* school of Football Management


*you're probably too young, but when he was spurs manager he used to play 5 up front. Every week. They either stuffed someone or got stuffed, it was fantastic to watch.

In his playing days, yeah FA Cup hero, star of that film with Pel and Sly Stallone. As a manager, brilliantly awful.

Kevin Keegan replaced him as Newcastle manager, cos he was too attacking.

I liked Ranieri. I thought it was really bad when he was sacked. But then Jose did alright, so there you go. He'd doing pretty well at Juve last time I looked.

Ok, been plying these games for years, and while I haven't payed the latest version, I had FM08.

Formation wise, keep it simple:

4-4-2 - with player presets as base

2 ultra defensive centre backs (hard tackling) who come forward to attack corners.

2 fullbacks on a custom setting between defensive and normal (normal tackling), with forward runs, that stick to the sidelines and cross from deep

1 defensive midfielder. Ultra defensive, hard tackling, tracking back left and right (at the same time - trust me!).

1 normal midfielder. You'll have to fiddle with his settings until you find a good balance between going forward, but not too psycho - with a bit more added creativity. (normal tackle)

2 wingers - put the crosses onto mixed - forward runs all the way to the end of the pitch. (light tackle)

1 striker, brought down and in slightly, running up and across to fill the hole. Bring his attack mindedness down and creativity up. (light tackle)

1 out and out striker, running straight into the box. attack mindedness up, creativity down. (light tackle)

If you get it right it will never fail.

And remember to establish a first 11 and stick with it as much as you can - don't rotate unless you need to. this means the players know where they stand, and when you get injuries the reserves will start pushing for a first team place. And stick to your tactics! If you like to close the game down at 2-0 with a 5th defender then keep doing it, or if you always throw on a 3rd striker when you need a goal then always do it! This way your players will start to learn your tactics and respond (and you find out who makes the grade or not).

You must also keep recruiting youth players for your under 18's and reserves, getting better coaches and scouts etc... don't fuck around with the training through, it never seems to work.

wow, that was like a tutorial.

You just have to look at Chelsea at the moment to see how well Jose did with them.

Who do I be though?!

Someone give me a good-to-average team in the EPL or Championship, go!
