Re: *Official Football Manager Discussion Thread*
Okay, so decided that I'd do a United game a while back since I haven't played FM in awhile and thought best to go with something I was familiar with. Just past the January window, sometime early February. From November onwards, it's been a four horse title picture; us, City, Arsenal & Spurs. We're at the top of the table now, I think it's about a five point lead over City in second, Arsenal and Spurs are close on City's tails in 3rd and 4th.
de Gea is my trusted #1, while my back four consist of Ferdinand & Vidic in CB roles, then Evra & Phil Jones (who I'm STILL retraining to play on the right) who play in full back positions. I'm not happy with the center of my midfield; got Scholes playing regularly for about 65 minutes each game, then rotate between Carrick, Park, Cleverly and Giggs (rarely, though). Darren Fletcher seems to be suspended for the whole season; but I don't remember any incident and the game doesn't seem to know currently, either. I play Valencia on the right, primarily; normally Ashley Young on the left, but rotate between Lavezzi (signed in January) and Nani. Young seems to dip out of form a lot so Nani does get his games, and I like to give Valencia breaks while settling in Lavezzi. All wingers played in attacking roles, while set to support, too... and when I can, I'll always play Rooney & Hernandez up front. Got Hernandez to place his shots and fuck me, he's racking in the goals. Welbeck will only come in if one's fucked; and then Berb will get his shot. Trying to offload Berbatov, though; no use for him. Sold Michael Owen and brought in Yaya Sanogo, both relatively cheaply).
Knocked out of the Carling Cup by Spurs when I decided to give the young lads a run. Couldn't care less, mind you; still going in the FA Cup & the Champions League; in the quarter finals, I think? Either way waiting for the next draw. I know we beat Benfica in the knockouts, anyway. Transfer wise, only brought in aforementioned Lavezzi & Sanogo.
Suppose that's it for now.
