Re: **Official Football Manager Thread**

I've just started the 'No Anelka' Bolton challenge. I'm taking on a couple of friends in it. We're each doing a game with Bolton, in which we play as Bolton and cannot make any transfers in or play Anelka in ANY matches, which leaves a reasonably pitiful striking depth. Whoever finishes with the most points after one season wins. Brilliant thing about this challenge is its all about tactics as with transfers the game is too easy. The only shame is if Diouf or Helguson gets injured for one of us, it's all over.

I've just started. My two first choice line-ups are as follows:

GK - Jussi

DR - Hunt
DL - Samuel
DC(R) - Meite
DC(L) - Michalik

DM - McCann (with a farrow)
MC(R) - Nolan (with a farrow)
MC(L) - Andranik Teymourian
AMR - Wilhelmsson
AML - Diouf

ST - Helguson

The more attacking second:

GK - Jussi

DR - Hunt
DL - Samuel
DC(R) - Meite
DC(L) - Michalik

MC(R) - Nolan
MC(L) - Andranik/McCann
AMR - Wilhelmsson (sometimes MR with farrow)
AML - Diouf (sometimes ML with farrow)

ST - Helguson
ST - Braaten

In both cases Giannakopolous is a good super-sub, as is Braaten in the first line-up. Helguson is a great target man too. If only he had better 'off the ball'. Diouf and Nolan are quite easily my best players and have both impressed a lot in pre-season averaging combined goals and assists per game. I'm predicting that I come about 6th on 60+ points.
