Whilst managing AS Roma i played 5-1-3-1 formation
and dispite taht sounding quite defensive i have managed
32 goals scored, 5 goals conceeded, 21played W16 L3 D1,
in all competitions.

my three centre backs were

juan
mexes
demichelis(10M)

with mexes a sweeper...

just wanted to know about other good CBs who work well together because they are the only ones who i find really work and now managing fulham i would like to know some cheeper alternatives

Beevers has just signed for Chelsea on my game, for £13m, at the start of the third season.

That really anoyys me because when i try to sell a player the highest i com manager offers is 2,3,4, mil more unless the team is madrid or city but when i try to sign some one they ask for 5,6,7,8,9,10 mil more than the value :S

I saw someone mentioned Barzagli. He won player of the year in one of my games in the 1st season, I was so surprised as Ronaldo, Villa, Ibrahimovic and Gerrard among others were up for the award. He's just been snapped up by Real Madrid as-well for 22.5 Mil. Must be something special.

Andrea Barzagli was awesome in the 08 but not as good in the 09 though.but think u should check out Martin Caceres(whom if u r a good dealer,can get for 7.5m),Gamberini,Kompany,Jonathan Evans,Michael Mancienne,Havard Nordveit or Beevers with the price-range u want.Hope this helps.

bought chiellini and I cannot say I am that pleased with his performance,; although he's getting better I think you could go for nkoulou, less than 5m euros if you negotiate well and will join lower sides though I am considering giving him a chance in my starting eleven, even if he has done a very very poor season this year, his stats are amazing.

zapata - 15m =]

excellent but maybe pricey, barça just bought them in my game and he is a regular, as he was in a long ago madrid game of mine. I don't know if he'll be attracted for a low side, maybe a uefa side. Of course, like verybody I'd go for Sakho. He is my first signings every game I start, him, nkoulou, balotelli and vela and a winger, often guardado.

Haven't seen demichelis on the game so far, irl he is a beast.

demichelis(10M) :O Bargain buy! Best piece of business in my opinion! Sakho and Fazzio are pretty good, Micah Richards is class too. PSG have another quality CB, but I can't seem to remember his name! His marking and tackling stats are like both 17.. But I just can't remember his name..
