Only commentary, but when I saw in text a goal was particularly nice, I’ll sometimes watch it after the match.

Compose my own.

Do you download tactics or compose them yourself?

Compose ‘em myself.

Do you mainly buy experience or invest in youth?

Youth.

Do you attempt to buy the same players each new game or diverse?

It differs, I mostly am in a position of relative poverty with a new game, so then I’ll go for some familiar ones.

Do you prefer a relegation battle or chasing a league title?

Chasing a title. I cannot bear to lose, also my computer equipment will suffer if I do (often).

Do you splash the cash or hunt the bargain?

Bargain, or stars out of contract.
