    Let's try to build off our success Monday night gents. Hopefully we can get a good showing. Let's keep a few things in mind for this evening:

    1. Remember your spacing -- let's play our positions, if you feel the need to ball watch slap yourself in the face repeatedly until that thought is gone from your head. It does no one any good to always run to where the ball is.

    2. If you are on defense, make sure you hit select to the camera follows you and not the ball that way you can make sure you are in line with the rest of your mates on defense.

    3. COMMUNICATE -- we all wanna chat and have a good time while we're playing, but let's make the point to communicate with each other. If you want to make a run down the wing by performing a give and go with another player let them know. If you are cutting back across the box and are wide open for a good look let the person with the ball know. Communication is key.

    4. Play the easy pass -- too many times we try to force the ball for some ridic pass, play what's in front of you or directly behind you if the pressure is too great. Sometimes it might take 3 or 4 passes to create space vs just one pass that will get intercepted.

    Alright, let's have a good time, and win an effin cup!

    Kickoff is at 8:00pm central 9:00pm east

    i'm in if we play attacking soccer with 2 or 3 forwards...442 or 433 or 343


    4231 or any other defensive formation that relies on 1 forward and has basically 6 defenders is a snoozefest and im out
    how many of us really wants to play defense or d-mid anyway?


    anyway we have nothing to lose... we are not highly ranked nor have we won any cups.....lets attack!!


    again i recommend we set tactics to attack or all out attack so our players are positioned is further up the field on restarts allowing us to press the other team better.... we always play defensive and we have not won any cups and rarely win more than a game or two on any night we play...obviously this setting is not as important if we have ton of actual players playing compared to computer guys...however it does matter on restarts like throw-ins and goal kicks

    my 2 cents

    Can't argue we didn't have some success Monday. I wouldn't change from that gameplan too much.

    I don't disagree about having more forwards. But a few things:

    1) If you are under 5'10'', are controlling a CPU generated guy or otherwise have terrible heading attributes then get the hell out of the box on set pieces. Let someone else take a path to the ball that can actually do something with it. Take your guy and pick up the trash.

    2) We are playing less than 5% good crosses into the box. It takes a lot more than hitting X. Learn how to get the ball to curve onto the head of an attacker. This is the main reason the 1-up-top formations are sucking balls for us. Delivery has been absolute shit.

    3) Setting the tactics to attack is the worst thing you can do with a CPU back line. side mids push way too far up the field and don't necessarily do anything for your attack besides get in the way. Then your CBs come forward for set pieces. Most of which have negative ratings in jumping, heading, finishing and just about every other meaningful attribute.

    4) Some of you still don't understand the passing game. When to keep the ball on the ground, when to lead, when to play direct and when to lob. Please stop lobbing the ball up every chance you get. Please stop holding the ball forever. Forwards, stop making runs every time expecting the lobbed thru ball. Drop into a space, take the pass and let someone overlap you or make a run. We turn the ball over so much that it just wears our attackers out before the 65' minute.

    This is my biggest problem... Not everyone can be a forward. The first thing you need to worry about is where the fuck you are on the field. I agree, we need to play attacking soccer, but that doesn't mean following the ball everywhere, running into the box when you are a defensive mid all the time, and being all over the damn field. All that's happening is you are creating excessive amounts of traffic and it makes it very difficult to find space. I and others have said things to you about it before and it keeps happening.

    If you don't think you can be disciplined to handle a defensive mid role if that's what you need to play for the evening, then you're better off not playing. Cause all it does is fuck shit up for the rest of us if you're out of position. That's my .02.

    So we can add you as an "In" ?

    If so hope you play any again , IMO probably the best defensive any we have had since JFace907 or AJ

    York what are you doing to get all these ratings boosts? I got my CB up to 81 but my CDM is still a 77 -78.

    Not trying to pile on here pig but I gotta agree with Moon ...

    I play a ton of pro ranked and that is how those random guys play , 9 guys in the box because nobody sans to play the correct position. We can't all score , I dislike playing defender because I am bad at it, not cause I wanna score goals . We had a good run Monday when we started we had some wins right off rip with guys having good spacing and playing together, once we hade 9 guys that makes spacing harder and I dont think we refocused on it and struggled for a bit IMO.

    Guess my point is we are heading in right direction , let's stay focused and team orientated so we can get some wins and have some fun , me first attitude won't help anybody.

    It depends what u are playing. You prob have more defensive accomplishments which is why your rating goes down at cdm. You prob need to focus on passing. Long passes especially. That should bump it up.

    well 90% i play with you i have been an attacking mid or winger

    and im also sitting here watching MANU play right now vs Fulham.... Nani who is the left winger just made a near post run across the goal to the right side, while center mid giggs made a back post run, rooney made the slot run,while the Welbeck made a checking run to the ball that was out wide right with Valencia, thats the kind of creative play i have always done as a player and coached for my youth teams.... if you think our players are not smart enough to run a system like that i can park it and hang out in an imaginary box....although im not sure how we will create chances if players are not switching, overlapping, exchanging, and flooding zones

    tonight i'll gear my pro up to be a striker and score some goals which we have been lacking big time...if you are full and dont need a striker i can sit out

    there you go, take on for the team and switch to striker. just watch out for those defenders they are a bitch to sprint straight into.

    you are like a combination of carlos tevez's attitude but with jonathan bornstein skills.
