Derby County, road to glory ( or them making a stadium in honor of my name)

Jan 4, 2012
Reaction score

Started a Derby County game, am just going into my 2nd season.

Been using 3 tactics so far. . .

Nezza Super 442

Cautious 352 diamond by TBH

and FM11 now 13 narrow diamond by TBH

Been pretty okay so far using the 3 tactics. But as I am progressing with my game, I begun having dreams for my team, the line up I would be having. . .

I pretty much want to build a strong english side, with minor foreign influence. (Cuz all my saves pretty much only have 1 - 2 english players playing in my starting 11.)

Starting 11 currently consists of for TBH's Narrow Diamond

Carlos Fierro - Mason Bennett

Will Hughes

David Fox - Paul Coutts

Chris Basham

Aaron Cresswell - Richard Keogh - Valentin Gjokal - Danny Simpson

Jack Butland

Thing is, can anyone suggest a wide diamond tactic?? Im looking into the possiblity of signing Luke Shaw (DL) this season, and maybe in a couple of years, the OX for the wide right. With that in mind, I would need a wide tactic to fully utilize the ox. . . Cuz TBH's wide tactic has 3 Center Backs, which would make Luke Shaw pretty much surplus. .
