Football Manager Pundit has been blogging about for 6 months, in that time we have posted over 50 articles. Not bad when you consider that I have wrote around 50, with two guest posts. I would like to thank you all for coming, commenting, just reading and enjoying what I have written. I hope that we have more to offer in the future. But in the meantime I would like to look back in the last 6 months and highlight some of my own favourites.
In long term saved games squad gelling cannot be underestimated if you are able to put a decent squad together once you have a squad that you can play with little change week in and week out you will see it much easier to get the results that you want. Consistent squads will allow you to interact more with your team, giving more control on morale. But also allow your side to play more technical tactics, as team working is such an important aspect for these tactics.
During Benitez’s terrible form, his lack of tactical change and past mistakes all surfaced to the top this season, leading me to write this post about the team that I am passionate about. I still stand by much of what I say in the article and I don’t think the man is the right man for the job anymore, good manager in charge of a huge team. It was one of the most re tweeted articles that grabbed the attention of alot of people. What do you think Rafa can learn from FM?
10 General and simple tips that can help you become a better Football Manager. Advice from keeping tactics simple, to helping squads gel. These are pieces of advice that any of us can implement and have a big affect on your team performance if you consider them. The simplistic approach of this article is what makes it one of my favourites.
Written off the back of a double win over Arsenal and great results against Liverpool. I am forever confident when I go into these big games that I can beat them. But just like the real Liverpool side, we can beat the big teams, I just need to learn to motivate my side to beat the smaller sides. One of my favourite articles just because it was wrote after winning some big games, I was really on a feel good when typing away. Made all the better that I have just beaten an Arsenal and United once again in my return to the Premiership.
This article had a massive affect on my own game play and showed how much I still have to learn and how this website is basically a journey of my own discovery and learning as it is for other readers. I wrote this article when I was taking a Southport team through two seasons, starting off well each time before hitting a downturn I couldn’t get out of. After much conversation and looking for help, I was able to put together a late surge in my second season to challenge for the play-off’s.
One of my favourite aspects of Football Manager is building a great young team of players that come through to replace the ageing guys. There is no better satisfaction then knowing that you put a team of stars together and seeing them come through the ranks. I went through the different aspects that I go through to make the best possible youth side for me.
