Anyone up for clubs tonight, say starting at 10:00 PM EST or so?
Yep, I am in.
And we're making a change. I am running CAM. KnightNoles you move to the wing.

An effort to get more on tonight.
I'm in. I can play midfield or defense......
but i've really been in form as a striker lately. (hint, hint)
i'll be there tonight...and i want to try this rule and see how we do >>>>>
i think it would fun to see what happens and it may also teach people some new ways to look at various options on the pitch
a simple rule we use to teach kids how to play 2 touch soccer and move the ball quickly is... "play the way you are facing"...no turning is allowed unless a teammate says "turn!"
if we played with this rule we would shred virtually every team we play... people need to make runs to support the guy with the ball where he can "see" you and not require him to turn with it to make a pass or dribble
use negative passes to people [usually defenders or middies] that are facing up the field vs trying to turn into pressure when an opponent is on your back...these players are facing "the play" and can make better passes without having to turn and beat a guy first
the concept creates space making runs, fewer turnovers, and great cobination play
whoa man, calm down
I don't think I yelled. Just want to mix it up. If I blow ass then I will move somewhere else. I have no prob with someone being like moon you really suck move somewhere else.
ok coach.. just put me in coach
I am in , Think I am coming along as a forward , just need to improve my player , hope I get a shot to play upfront, if not I think I am better at midfield than back , but will play whatever
oh man I loved playing midfield I like facilitating much more than scoring I like defense too. remind me if I am right footed I want to play which position? And what attributes do I want to focus on when switching players from mid field to CB? Pig you gotta simplify it a bit more "facing forward" if we are headed left to right on the field we sould stay facing right until who says turn the guy with the ball? What I have seen is that online teams focus on the ball and that is all. what I mean by this is 3 manual guys go for the steal, tackle and its simple if three guys are on one that leaves 7 defenders on 9 open guys switching sides of the field gives more room to move forward. I think that instead of going into the wall and hoping for a skill move to split defenders(and this doesn't work if they are letting the CPU AI play defense) it would be better to play the ball backwards and look for open space on the opposite top or bottom of the screen... also we need a clarification on who is calling for the ball from CPU controlled goalie before we start.
Ugh, ugly font.
I'll play defense as usual.
i'd be down for some early clubs, say anytime before noles gets online.
I'm in. Will patrol my usual Fullback spot. Also willing to take on ANY if need be. Had fun with it at the end of the night Wednesday.
What do we think about something like this tonight guys?
Also let's go full bore and set up our guys per Bly's post a little while back:
LB - Pacey. In the 5'10" range. Athletic. Good crosser and can shoot from distance. Left footed.
LCB - Tall and strong. Killer of the aerial threat. Concentrates more on defense than offense.
RCB - Smaller, more athletic CB. Can speed back and breakup the counter attack. More sure on the ball but should be looking to link up with the midfielders.
RB - More defensive than the LB. Bit taller and stronger. Looking to stay back more and doesn't often get involved in the offense. Right footed.
CDM - Holding midfielder. His job is to get the ball back, then be able to effectively pass to start the attack. Needs to be fast enough to cover a lot of ground, but also strong enough to shove little bastards off the ball.
LM - Fast, smaller player who can blaze down the wing and send in crosses, or cut back in toward the middle and shoot from outside. Shouldn't be a liability on defense. Left footed.
CAM - Little bigger and stronger than the wing guys. Good dribbler who can get into space and open up passing lanes. Should be the focal point of the attack's build up. Think of him as the point guard.
RM - Same as the LM, but right footed.
LS - Targetman. Should be big and strong. His job is to occupy the CBs, opening up room for other players. Doesn't look to make too many runs as a result. Can hold the ball up on the attack until in the box - where he needs to be an aerial threat and a nimble dribbler. This guy should be looking to get into positions to get the ball and shoot - he isn't a creator.
RS - Smaller, faster forward who looks to harass the defense and get behind on runs. More of your all-around guys who can pass, shoot or try and create his own shot with his face at goal. Think Messi.
LM/RM 5'6'' - 5'9'' range?
switch me an prez, dude can finish and i work at mid counter acting all the guys who like to run forward and not give the guys at the back an option to pass to.
do you really want both me and shaun on the same side...just saying
Ya I make my dude when he is a winger 5'7", that way you're speedy.
This diagram doesn't mean we are changing kits to pink and shit right ? Cause I am too white and pasty to pull off pink lol
Do you think you would be better at cdm with danthraxxx at left mid and prez at forward?
Is it pink lol? I thought it was red.
