    I demolished your team of pretenders earlier this season. They sulked off the pitch with their heads bowed in respect and acknowledgement of the better team.

    I'm sure you'll beat me one day though. :)

    Just a few minor technicalities, nothing to worry your little head about. Continue nursing your players ego's, I'll continue beating you.

    Sunderland next for me. really need to win that one to be fair as I'm already 3 points from safety. I wont even have 20 points come half way mark of the season. really need a dramatic change for the 2nd half of the season if I'm going to even reach 40 points to stay up. bah-humbug!

    Del Piero and Rivaldo (2) rolled back the years. Neither player celebrated though.

    Tactics are overrated. I've barely touched mine and am doing well despite it. I've noticed that using DM's is effective and they usually get high ratings. 4-2-3-1 should work if you have the personnel.

    Same here. It's only the last couple of games that I've changed my tactics around (two 3-1 wins :p) but I think it's best not to change things too much. Once you've found something that works for you, stick with it.

    Wow. I didn't know his squad was like that. Recall Cahill. Your squad can't be put through that much longer.

    I don't know why they've dropped so much! I honestly don't. It's not even like it's the odd player, it's EVERYONE, even my back-ups!

    That's the problem with going through a long cup and shield run with just 23 players. Your squad can't handle it. In order to cope you'll need to either recall some players or buy some more.

    I can't even see how bad the fitnesses are because my next game is a friendly.

    They'll be fine - 3 days to recover until my next league game. Can't recall anyone as the only players I can recall are either below 80 or Cahill, and I've only got £2m so can't buy anyone.

    Great 4-2 away win at Barnsley, pulled Peterborough off the bottom after 4 league games in charge! Onwards and upwards!

    3 of my lads got 10's including debutant Mesbah and Van Nistlerooy who got 3 assists!

    feck! Thanks for the print screen.

    There's literally nothing I can do though - I don't know why it's got so bad so quickly! I've been rotating them as I usually do :(

    You can't really play the same players in Cups mate without it hitting their fitness hard. You need to rotate your first 11 away from the cup games, your players need the 3 days rest to recover. I dunno what you're going to do for your defense, Shittu will have to play and you'll probably need to sub whichever CB you do play at 60mins with another one.

    Good luck :D

    Another thing which will help you a lot is try to use less arrows with your tactics. The arrows means that those particular players will run more and use more condition up. Fast tempo isn't good for your squad's fitness either. Cut back on the arrows, reduce the tempo a bit and I think it should help loads.

    Sorted a team out just now which should hopefully be OK, but I have to play Ivanovic who's on 57%.

    I'm just amazed at how it got so bad over a period of 2 matches, even with rotation!

    EDIT: Accepting loans for any player rated over 83/84... :(

    Ando, I submitted a loan request for your 80/81 CF as well, seeing as Drogba's died and Lukaku is too exhausted to walk.
