    Alright, a bit of a success story here.

    Usually I like to focus on the financial aspect of the game, managing the money, getting good deals on transfers and the like, so I just download a tactic and work from there.

    This time around I decided to try making my own tactic, so I made a 4-1-3-1. Playing as Man Utd, I acquired Hargreavs and my line up is

    VDS

    Neville Ferdinand Vidic/Heinze Evra

    Hargreaves

    Ronaldo Scholes Giggs/Ji Sung Park

    Rooney Saha


    I also have Carrick go in for Scholes if we are winning comfortably, just to slow thing down.

    The thing is, usually I win a lot of games with the downloaded tactic. I'm winning with my own! In second place on a 10 game win streak (behind Chelsea, this is with FM Weegie update so they have an amazing squad), I have let in 7 goals and scored 33.

    It feels so great to have MY tactic working so well for me. Some highlights include MANY 4-0 slaughters against Liverpool, Man City, Newcastle, Blackburn, Wigan, and Middlesbrough.

    Any one else have success stories?

    my greatest success story was bringing a romanian team (Olimpia SM) from 2nd division to first and winning the league then moving to Genoa, taking them from 2nd division and winning seria a.

    What, never done something as good?

    I guess taking a 4th division side to winning the CL would be considered better.

    I started unemployed BTW.

    Well I mostly play my youngsters there, they even won it once as you can see. But maybe I should've played the league cup more seriously because than I could've got the quadruple once. :D

    - Club World Championship with Sydney FC (on a 2.something million euro Salary cap), putting 3-5 goals past both Boca and Bremen
    - Team from German regional division up to UEFA Cup (lack of crowds -> big losses -> cant afford better players -> tough to take the step up to winning the league/getting CL)

    A bot has infiltrated Filipower's username, I think we need to delete his account.
