also play players in their preferred 'style' so to speak. so at right back, micah as wing back support, or aguero as a trequartista attack. it helps a lot more, especially if you have aguero playing as something like a target man or something where they just wont fit.
Yeah I just figured that out in my previous game
That's probably one of the reasons I was doing horribly. I tend to pick one formation and pick my players based of who fits each position.
EDIT: First game was a 2-2 draw with Portugal, both their goals coming from set pieces. Ashley Young scored twice for me, with Jack Wilshere getting both assists. Ryan Shawcross had a great game too.
Update: 2-0 over Scotland, with Ashley Young and Gabby Agbonhalor scoring the goals. A draw or win against Netherlands would get me through to the quarter finals, and a loss would probably knock me out (assuming Portugal beat Scotland..)
Update: Woo Hoo! Destroyed Netherlands 4-0 with goals from Darren Bent, James Milner, John Terry and Steven Gerrard, so I top the group with Portugal in 2nd. Here are the other groups (if anyone cares...)
So i've drawn Sweden in the quarter finals
Germany beat Turkey 1-0, Spain beat Portugal 3-0 and France beat Belarus on penalties.
Update: Beat Sweden 6-1 with Darren Bent scoring 4, and Terry and Gerrard getting one each. I have France in the semis, which is very winnable. Germany beat Spain 1-0.
Update: Lost to France 2-1... Gotta look towards the Olympic Games now!
Germany beat France 4-1, Darren Bent wins the Golden Boot (5), Ashley Young won the Player of the Tournament, and John Terry, Micah Richards, Ashley Young, James Milner and Darren Bent make the Team of the Tournament.
