Hi guys, I have gained promotion with my Leeds side and now some loanees have gone home I have the following squad for the premiership:



--------------------------Schmeichel--------------------------
---------??????-----Bruce--------Collins---------Bassone

-------------------Crosas-------------------------------------------

----------------------------------------?????-----------------------

-----?????-----------------------------------Snodgrass/McCormick?

-------------Griffiths--------------Rodrigo-----------------------


Gaps are from loan players returning. I got rid of Becchio and Nunez. I still don't know whether to play Mccormack as a striker or on the left. I came 2nd in the championship and I am now looking to strengthen considerably. I think I want in order of preference:

1. CM/AMC
2. RW/RM
3.RB
4. ST
4. CB
5. DM

Not sure crosas has enough tackling for me. The defence in general has been VERY leaky this season. I'm thinking maybe ganso and mexes as miskell has done in his LUFC story - I may also want a nice striker as well??

Can anyone recommend any players? I am playing ZeroSea's ghost tactic - very good by the way. Just need WAY more quality for the prem, i think.

I got 26m - who would you buy? I'm thinking I can do top half finish.

Thanks for the suggestions hellroker - will check these out when I get home! Will I need a better striker? Rodrigo has bags of potential but is struggling to perform at the moment. Any other suggestions guys? Thanks for your help!

You're playing Griffiths at poacher I assume, so a bigger man to play as target man with him should be good. Have a look at Lacina Traore or Olexandr Gladkyi

I'm playing them both as advanced forwards as called for by ZeroSea's ghost tactic - would you recommend playing Griffiths as a poacher? Does it matter if he is on the right or left? I havent been scoring as many goals as i expected. Thanks again mate

Matias Ezequiel Schelotto as MR definitely. He's monstrous.
CB - Jack Hobbs
DR - Jordan Spence
ST - maybe Llorente for 8,5M...
