As an alternative to 4 3 3 try 5 3 2 wings, attacking full backs, stay, attack with 28/28/75.

RE: OSM Game Features : Chatroom - Suggestions
A few stats incorporated into the player cards would be nice -
list item clean sheets for keepers
list item goals from corners and free kicks instead of just assists
list item own goals
Also would be nice if the shirt number function worked, more often than not the number on the grid does not correspond with the list view.
My only football-related poem -
A blood tarnished broadsword and battered shield lie in a lost tomb.
The Knights now wear their shield on their chests.
A club emblem replaces their breastplate.
A black band is worn like a Queen's ribbon, laced around the arm.
Shirts and shorts their battle dress.
Shin pads their rusty spurs.
A match their honour fight.
The pitch their battlefield.
The defence their armour.
The strikers attack the back line like the siege of an enemy's castle.
A pass replaces a parry.
A dribble and tackle is footwork
like fray and clash of metal was swordplay.
A foul is a Black Knight's deed.
A red card is banishment, like Lancelot, to the tunnel.
A free kick like a lance in a joust;
breaks through the wall, knocking the Champions off their steed.
A shot cuts into the net like a blade into a foe's chest.
The shout of female fans is the siren of modern damsels.
Feet wound supporter's pride.
Knights no more.
Teams fall through the divisions
like Kingdoms through history
Blood is spilt but no men fill the open graves.

RE: Top ten players in the world under 23 years, aka The young STARS
A good list, think Robertson would be pushing for that top ten. What you reckon?
Seen anything of Mount and Wilson? They are also top players in general.
RE: Braggers & Boasters !
Just started this game on 6th April as a long time Football Manager (Sportsactive) player.
Unbeaten with my hometown team, R B Leipzig -
Top strikers Timo Werner/ Augustin and Bruma ably assisted by Cristante and Klostermann.
Safe hands in Trapp and Myogo.
Also top of the league with my mighty Rams (English team I have supported since childhood).
Only have to now get to grips with my Estonian team (Tammeka), and Djurgården from Stockholm, two teams I have taken over for manager slot 3 and 4.
Bring em on!
RE: Listen to the music
@comfortablynumb1903 Luv it! Sinead has such a great voice it would be amazing to hear a voice like hers backed by London Contemporary Voices. Here is another song that is better than the original -
And a youtube channel worth subscribing to for some great live stuff.
RE: To Know Us Better !
Hi folks, Live in Leipzig, a city near Dresden in Germany, but was born and grew up near Chesterfield (old school FA Cup giant killers). My name is Stewart, in my early 40s. A fan of the Rams (Derby County) who were only any good (Cloughie era) when I was too young to watch and are going through the now repeated trials and tribulations of Championship play-offs. Still can't forgive them for their loss to QPR in the 9oth minute in 2014.
Also am a fan of RB Leipzig and had the delight to see Poulsen, Keita, and Timo Werner play live. A team that has a good ethos of blooding new talent (Lookman).
Also, a supporter of Liverpool, as there is a group of locals support them and regularly watch the EPL in local pubs.
Have played Football Manager since the days it was Championship Manager. Which is where my habit of comic manager names comes from, hence Hans Orf.
Only just started this game and topping the Bundesliga wíth RB Leipzig unbeaten in 14, and the Championship with the Rams, which is a little closer.
As well as taking over both Tammeka in the Estonian league and the struggling Djurgårdens IF in the Swedish, so I can get a real idea of the game from leagues I know nothing about. Both are fighting their way back up the leagues though
I luv good music, books, films, and art. And have a JRT dog called Sparky after the character in the Tim Burton film.
