****, I just picked this up again, no idea it was so overwhelming. I'm playing like crap, will have news once I eventually figure it out!
I'm thinking about even starting another one, just to get pumped about FM again, and then have the guts to pick up ******* Aves. So if a mod would be kind enough to change the thread name to something more related to me, instead of just Pentagon Challenge
So I started a new game with Arsenal for a bit of fun, bought Otamendi and Aerola (young keeper). 4-2-3-1 with Nasri and Walcott on the wings, Song and Wilshere holding midfield and Cesc free to do whatever the **** he wants. It got me pumped enough to have the guts to pick up the Pentagon, but I might post a few pics of the Arsenal game as well!
For the time being though, with Aves things are not so good in the Orangina, but in a League Cup tie I just played Rio Ave, and beat them 3-2 in a great game, in which the opening goal was this gem from my right-back CLAUDEMIR
I know, but I want to develop Wilshere as quickly as possible, plus Nasri's already injured (big surprise...), so it's Andrei on the wing. Also brought Rodney Sneijder to cover for that Inside Forward(the left winger role of Nasri/Arshavin)
How's Van Persie doing? He had a monster season for me at Arsenal, playing him as an inside forward at the right wing. With Arshavin playing in a similar role on the left wing and Chamakh as target man I had a very deadly forward line. Van Persie kind of became the Robben of my team.
Oh and I played Nasri on midfield, in an attempt to try and create a midfield-duo a la Iniesta-Xavi at Barca. Didn't totally work out though because Fabregas had a bit of an average season by his standards.
Nonetheless I won all the prices available to me, including the CL with a beautiful winner by Van Persie versus Real in the final. Actually while I'm writing this, I'm wondering why I dropped that game.
"Mijn hart is rood zwart rood met drie witte kruisjes in het midden"
I'm not a big fan of Chamakh, so Robin as the Advanced Forward. Walcott as a right Winger and Nasri/Arshavin as left Inside Forward. Fabregas loose behind Robin as an Advance Playmaker, Wilshere as a Box-to-box and Song(Denilson, because Alex is injured) as a Ball-winning midfielder.
