    Best piece of business ever.

    Lucas Digne. Was a PL backup and CL starter for my 2nd place finishing and champions league winning arsenal side. This is easily the best set of deals i've ever done for a single player. PSG paid me $36 million US dollars to use him for a year :).

    Took over in december with Southampton sitting in 16th. Board aim was top half. Had a 17.5 million dollar transfer kitty in january, I only spent about 7m of that. Finish the season in 5th place, in the Euro League, and with one of the best offenses in the league. Pablo Osvaldo had a single...

    Arsenal Possession Tactic

    So, I've done a good bit of reading on this forum, and the SI forums, and decided to try a possession tactic with arsenal. What I came up with stutters, it struggles to create CCCs and there are often players running into players in the middle of the pitch. As you can see these screenshots...

    Diamond Midfield and the Box-to-Box Midfielder

    So i prefer to play a 4-5-1, with an Anchor man, DLP on support and an AP on attack. This tends to include two IFs on attack and a poacher pushed way up the field. I want to kind of invert the poacher, have him play more of a false 9 role as a DLF, still with the IFs, but I dont want to play...
