Ross's Arsenal Guide

Hello all, This is a Football Manager 2011 Arsenal guide. Now I am not telling you how to play, I will be recomending. Now hopefully after you have read this guide and taken things in you will able to do really well with Arsenal.

Note: The Patch I am using is LFC Marshall so if you don't have this patch this guide will not work.​


Arsenal Football Club

Media Prediction: 4th
Fierce Rivals: Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester United, Chelsea
Other Rivals: Liverpool, West Ham United



Start of season

Expectations

Winner - Budget - 46 Million Wage - 1.3 Million
Title Challenge - Budget - 42.5 Million Wage - 1.3 Million
Continental qualification Through League Finish - Budget - 35 Million Wage -1.2 Million


Backroom Staff

Assistant Manger - Pat Rice

Don't sack him or release him. He is very good and you should always keep him.


First Team Coach - Boro Primorac

Again, Hold onto him don't release him or sack him.


Goalkeeping Coaches - Tony Roberts, Mart Poom, Gerry Peyton

Do you really Need Three Goalkeeping Coaches? You should terminate Tony Roberts Contract as he is part time anyway.


Fitness Coaches - Craig Grant, Tony Colbert

Try to keep them both as that is what i do.


Youth Coaches -Steve Leonard, Carl Laraman, Steve Gatting, David Court, Steve Bould

You only need 2-3 Youth coaches so you should release a couple of them. You should release Carl Laraman and Steve Gatting. Steve Gatting usually gets approached anyway.


Physios - David Wales, Colin Lewan, Simon Harland, Jon Cooke

You should not change anything here. It is Fine.


Scouts - 15 Scouts

That tells you one thing: get rid of a few. Every so often, you get around 12 scouts coming back with regular reports but i dont' know about you but it annoys me. If you want to sack a few, go for these


Pablo Budner, Peter Clark, Everton Gushiken, Christian Karembeu, Jurgen Kost, Daniel Karbassiyoon
