    Dobby got a reaction from Elohim in EDL.. European Draft League.. Drafts/Match Reports/Discussion Thread!..   
    Re: EDL SIGN UP!.. European Draft League..
    So you're suggesting that we don't make trades at all, or, at least, wait a few months before doing so?
    It is more beneficial to trade players before purchasing them or they will become transfer banned. Agreeing deals before the setup opens may be more confusing but it is the only way they can happen unless you want to wait 3 months before trading.
    Alternatively, if you are saying that we shouldn't trade and just stick with what we have got then that completely ruins an aspect of this gameworld. The idea of the shortlists meant that we would all have irregular numbers of players in each position (and it has worked out that way) and the only way to create a proper team would be to trade with other managers. Thus, creating a lot of dealing within the gameworld.

    Re: Keep Lloris or Neuer ?
    I can't see it happening. Man. United have been linked with almost every goalkeeper in the world recently - so that doesn't mean anything.
    If anyone, they will sign De Gea. Lloris will probably stay at Lyon.

    Not sure if he has peaked, but I cannot see Silva getting a 94 just yet. Been a good player for City so far, although, not up to the same level that Tevez has.
    A 93 has been earned and should stay, but a 94 seems a while away.

    Re: David Silva or Nasri, Cavani or Luis Suarez
    All 4 are very good talents.
    My advice would be to try and get all 4, if possible. Otherwise, if I had to pick one of the AMs and then one of the STs, I would take Nasri and Luis Suarez.
    Nasri has been one of, if not, the best player in the Premier League this season and has looked pretty assured for arsenal.
    Suarez now has the fact that he plays for Liverpool in his favour. He has looked solid in his first few games and showed the flair that Liverpool seemed to be lacking.
    My order would be:
    1. Nasri
    2. Suarez
    3. Silva
    4. Cavani

    And what would be a reasonable amount to let Ever Banega for? Have been offered 17 million straight cash. How is he doing in real-life? Likely for a rise/decrease etc.
    Thanks in advance.

    Re: A Guide for Newcomers (The Possession Game)
    THE POSSESSION STYLE
    Possession and getting shots are an important element of play in SM. Winning these elements will determine whether you win games and if you get to test the opposition side’s keeper. It has been well said that the best defense is an excellent offense. A side that keeps < 51% possession during a match is far more likely to win a match and, at the very minimum, is virtually guaranteed a draw. In sum, keeping possession is highly crucial when attempting to win a match because it applies pressure on the opponent and keeps the ball away from them at the same time.
    In any possession system, your defenders will not push up too far. In this way, on the other hand, when your side wins the ball your offensive players won’t have to go too far in order to get to the opposition’s goal and they can keep the opponent under constant pressure in both the midfield and their own half. When done properly, this style is probably the most effective because your side is in control and can dictate the tempo of the game. You are relying on the quality of your own side and not on what your opponent may or may not do.
    In order to use the playmaking/possession style, these are the key components:
    1. Quality midfielders with an average rating of at least 88 or higher. This is vital because the midfield players do most of the passing around in the game. If even one of your midfielders is lacking in quality, this system will be quite difficult to pull off.
    2. The best formations to use in this style are:
    4-4-2, 4-4-1-1, 4-3-1-2, 4-1-3-2, 4-5-1, and 4-3-2-1
    3. When selecting a tackling style for the possession game, HARD or even AGGRESSIVE are the best options.
    With either of these tackling styles your players will not sit back and allow the opposition to maintain possession of the ball for any great length of time. Your players will challenge for each and every ball in an attempt to win it back for your side.
    Be mindful of selecting either of these two options, however, because it will leave your side prone to receiving multiple yellow, or often times, straight red cards. If using either of these tackling styles, expect to receive a minimum of at least 3 yellow cards per game, with a red card coming at least once every 3 to 5 games.
    4. When selecting a mentality for your team, always click DEFENSIVE or NORMAL. Avoid an ATTACKING mentality when using this style of play, even if you have the much stronger side. If your squad is too attack minded, shots that are quick and far from quality (from 25 yards or so) are often taken. When this happens, the ball goes right back to your opponent if and when you miss (which will be quite often). If you choose a DEFENSIVE or NORMAL mentality, however, when your side gets the ball they will take their time with it before attempting to get it forward to your strikers.
    5. When selecting your side’s passing style, always choose SHORT or MIXED. Choosing SHORT passes will allow your players to pass the ball amongst themselves in an attempt to maintain possession and take advantage of defensive lapses by the opposition.
    MIXED passing will also serve the same purpose as short passing, but it will also allow your side to alter their attack with an occasional direct or long ball forward to exploit the opponent’s weaker players when the situation arises.
    In selecting a passing style, a word of caution would be to not use SHORT passing if the opposition side is stronger (in both numbers and quality) than your own, especially in the midfield. Given this situation, MIXED passing is always the far better option.
    6. When it comes to selecting your team’s attacking style, always choose MIXED or DOWN BOTH FLANKS. MIXED attacking needs little explanation. Simply put, it allows your side to attack wherever on the pitch the best opportunity to do so arises.
    Choosing DOWN BOTH FLANKS as an attacking style is extremely useful in this style of play if you have strong outside players in the midfield (Wing, RM, or LM) as well as strong outside defenders (RB and LB). This style will make sure that these gifted outside players get as many touches on the ball as possible throughout the course of a match.
    7. In choosing the tempo (pace) at which your team plays, it is always best to select a SLOW or NORMAL tempo when playing a possession style.
    A SLOW tempo allows your team to take their time with the ball. When your side takes possession of the ball, it is like gold to them. Your squad will make as many back passes between your midfielders and the defenders as they can in order to keep your opponent away from the ball.
    Be mindful of the ratings of both your defenders and goalkeeper when choosing a SLOW tempo, however. If any of your defenders or your keeper is slightly below average (86 or lower), gifted strikers from the opposition side (88 or higher) will have the advantage. They will be able to intercept the ball and will often get unopposed shots at your keeper.
    When playing at a NORMAL tempo, your squad will be cautious, but not overly cautious with the ball when they take possession. They will look for the opportunity to push a quicker or slower pace when the situation is appropriate.
    8. In choosing when and how to press, it is always best to choose OWN HALF when using a possession style. All of your players will come back and concentrate on pressuring the opposition in your half of the field. Your squad will keep the opposition playing in front of them, while limiting the amount of open space available in your own half.
    9. When choosing a play style, it is a good idea to choose MEN BEHIND BALL, USE PLAYMAKER, and USE TARGET MAN in the possession game.
    By keeping MEN BEHIND BALL your side won’t get caught by surprise if the opposition tries to break away. In choosing USE PLAYMAKER and USE TARGET MAN, your players will look to get the ball to your best offensive players in order to create scoring chances at every available opportunity.
    Your playmaker should always be a skilled attacking player of some sort (preferably a Wing, AM, or CM). A target man will almost always be a forward player (CF, F, or Fwd).

    it is not certain that they are going to be created every hour, but within a day there is generally at least 10 standard setups being created.
    standard setups are only created on the hour mark, so if you want to join one and get a big team then make sure you are ready!
