    I'm not so sure tbh. I've gone back to the tactic which has gave me a lot success in away games but at the same time this game is pretty damn random.

    What a surprise.

    Obviously the preamble for Damien to announce his happiness at any result except a 5-0 drilling.

    I did before the Barnsley game and that didn't work out too well.

    Being pessimistic - whether I think I've got a good chance of winning a game or not - usually works out well for me but this time I think I've messed around with formation and tactics too much. We'll see. Whatever happens there should be a lot of goals.

    Cue a scrappy 1-0 win/0-0 draw.

    I chose very daft tactics. Knew that it would be the likely result but wanted to see what happened. Started off 3-4-1-2 with the wingers pushing forward which led to the opponent's 5 man midfield dominating and having 31 chances.

    A 1-1 draw. Milwall got lucky. Could have done with a win to get into the promotion spots. Ah well, still time, with only 2 points separating me from the third spot.

    2-0 win away to Birmingham. I was fortunate enough looking at the shots.

    1-1 draw with Hull. Not the end of the world, but a bit frustrating that I havent won in the last four league games:mad:

    Drew 2-2 with Sunderland. New home attendence record too :) Not a bad result as I fecked around with the tactics a bit too much. Most of the bottom sides got good results though!

    :EDIT: first point I have gotten at home all season, get in!!

    Neither of the top 2 won... the table becomes closer.

    What a result that is for Doncaster... 4-1 away from home!

    But then i remember injured players getting subbed once. Still, i'd take a 1-1 draw with league runners up anyday.

    5 draws and a defeat for Hull in their last 6 league games. Wow. They've got an away shield game next against Portsmouth, hopefully Jay plays a few first teamers in that.

    Good thing you had a bad feeling ahead of tonights game, Damien. Or else you would've been disappointed.

    Good win against Sheff United with a reshuffled side.

    9 points clear of 3rd now.

    Solid draw against a very strong Arsenal team. We definitely did not get dominated, not all all. We absolutely fully deserved that point.

    Comfortable 3-0 win tonight. Given my players a few days off to prepare for a big game at Exeter, so the youth team will play vs Millwall in the cup game on Tuesday.

    Fair enough.

    You will fail but it's cute either way.

    Sorted myself out a nice relaxing tactic for my players seeing as they can't hack much running every game. Testing it out against Colchester United tomorrow.

    Also looking to do a straight swap with Kalou for someone - any takers?

    He's 26, 90 rated and RL reputation means nothing on FM. I could easily use him in a swap deal for someone, but I thought I'd let my peers see if they want him first.

    I'm nice like that.
