  1. I've used the search tool, and some threads have being totally abandoned for months, I was wondering if someone could recommend me a list of cheap young players preferably under 21, and around 100-200k for investment.

    Also if anyone would have a source (Website) in which I could research on "Up & coming" Youth players that would be awesome.

    I only have a little money at my current club & I'm looking to invest that on buying young players for the future, I'm sure someone out there knows a few youngsters I could buy. I've got around 11-13 million, and I'm looking to bring in as many youths as possible.

    Thanks.

  2. Hello, I was wondering is the 4-4-2 a winnable tactic and could I implement it with my team? I'm currently playing 4-5-1 and my starting team can be seen below.

    Four In, Six Out.

    York City Manager Jonathan Lack has announced that he's had 4 bids accepted for various players, he did also mention although the players won't arrive in England until tomorrow. He's ordered the players to travel to Edgely Parkwhere York travel to play Stockport.

    The four expected signings are ;

    Former Inter Milan Playmaker & Goalscorer Alvaro Recoba the experienced 35 year old forward will be a straight swap for Chris Doig.

    Kris De Wree, the 30 year old right-back will join after an agreed swap for 21 year old RB Liam Darville was agreed.

    Dong-Woo Kim, The Korean defender will join at the expense of forwards D.Henderson & Ashely Chambers.

    Tae-min Park, The 26 year old Right midfielder will be joining with Peter Till & M.Ingham going in the opposite direction.

    Upon Hearing the news of the clubs new transfer's several York City fans decided to give their thoughts.

    Fan 1 (Boy, 18) : I'm dead happy, the probable signing of Recoba has done it for me. He's played for Inter Milan for christ-sake, He's played in the champions league. He's 35 now I think we can get 2 season's out of him.

    Fan 2 (Man, 38) : I can't understand the managers logic here, he's traded away bright young players for older ones? albeit the signing of Recoba who are the other 3?

    Fan 3 (Female,25) : It will be nice to see new faces around the ground. Especially Recoba hmmmm...

    So will the four players have a part to play in York City's match away at Stockport tomorrow, I guess we'll have to wait and see...

    Jonathan Lack confirmed manager of York City!

    York City have announced that promising English manager Jonathan Lack has taken charge at Bootham Crescent.

    Here's what Jonathan had to say ;

    I'm over the moon at been giving the opportunity to be York City manager. I've only had 3 chances at management, and they we're all as a Caretaker manager for various clubs. But the way I see it is I've managed 21 games and gathered a total of 56 points, So I think I've got what it takes to be York City manager. I'll be looking to bring some new faces in, but I'm willing to give the current players a chance to prove their worth to the club.

    Jonathan Lack : I'd just like to tell the fans whom are shouting abuse. I'm playing a defensive formation and that is how we're going to stay in the top flight. By being defensive, I'm not going to go all out attack and risk this club being relegated. That Is ALL.

    Jonathan Lack : It was a good win for us, Luca Toni, and Royston Drenthe both getting on the score sheet is good for them, as they are new players, and settling into the team very well. I played 5-4-1 which is a defensive approach because that's how we'll be playing this season. The Squad seemed to adapt very well.

    Jonathan Lack : Firstly, I'm slightly disappointed that only 5000 people turned out tonight. Two-Premiership clubs going head-to-head? 5000?, it's ridiculausly funny. Did the turnstiles stop working or something?. Any How the team played well, we kept WBA Attacking options to a minimum as we dominated posession. Leaving them to not even register 1 shot on target. I'm very pleased with my defence. Solid as a rock tonight.

  14. Re: - Help (Norwich City)

    - I've gone with this, what do you think?

    - I was thinking about having the Wingbacks Arrows Pointing towards the attack to give abit of width - or would you use the wingbacks to support the defence?

    Any How heres what I went with

    - Adam Johnson is out of place unfortunatly :o

    2j3h1xj.png

  15. Re: - Help (Norwich City)

    5-3-2 or 5-4-1 will be a good one and playing style defensive' date=' try it and tell me. and if ur wing players are good then play with 4-3-3 winger with mentality normal[/quote']

    Okay, I'll try 5-4-1, do you have any ideas on - Intructions or Arrows?

  16. - Right I'll cut to the chase, I simply want to know if I should play attacking football with a weak team or defensive?

    I'm not really signing any Top- players. - I'm signing players for the future (17 year old - rated 75 rising to 82) Players like that.

    So would you recommend I play attacking football with a weak team? (I.E Ian Holloway - Blackpool) Or Defensive?, and What formations would suit them best? thanks very much.
