    Aguero has been a huge star when I bought him for liverpool in the second or third season, but I think his potential is slightly different game to game. Great scorer/passer.

    Yeah i had him in one game and he was pure awesome.

    Finished 8th in the league (again), reached the FA Cup final last season and lost 1-0 to Man Utd, but also gave me a UEFA Cup spot (Y)

    Right, i think my squad is sorted for the season, now i'm trying to find a tactic to accomodate the players...

    This is what i tried out in a few friendlies, with the option of pulling the two AMs out to Wingers (Millan and Walcott with Giovinco and Aguero as STs).

    Garay is world class. Had him in my Napoli game. Best defender in serie A award 4 time in a row from the 1st season i played there.

    well you should try and swap Aguero and Millan in that tactic, just to see if it'd work out...

    unless i retrain him, Millan has no rating for playing AMC at all, whereas Aguero is natural there and does have some kind of rating for AMR...

    Garay was also amazing in my game, in this game i'm playing tho i'm not giving him so much time...

    Nicollas Millán best position is definitely a striker, he has a powerful shot, he's great with free kicks and great header also, not that fast to be a winger...

    Dude your tactic dosen't look that good. Its way too centralized. Move those AMCs to the wings and having a 1CM and 1DM is not that usefull unless theres other players close by. (example: RM and LM or another CM )Yeah that tactic just dosen't look like its going to work. Go for a 4-5-1.

    not if you play 'through the middle'...with the kind of players Daz has at his command shouldn't be a hard job

    Yea i'm gona have to agree with Fili on this one, looking at my squad my strength is all through the middle, so playing centralised works well - been using this tactic for the first 7-8 games of the season and is working great. With attacking full backs in Baines and Taylor who providing the width when needed and Haestad covering when they go forward, i've still got options out wide. Even with the option of pulling Millan and Walcott out as AMR and AML.

    It's the first tactic i've made myself that isn't focused so much on wingers, so i'm pleased its working :)
