Don't underestimate Chamakh. He's big and strong, but also pretty good with the ball. He scored like 18 goals for me, despite his poor finishing and being out injured for a long time. Plus Van Persie and Arshavin got bags of goals thanks to him holding up the ball and setting them up for a good shot.
Usually my attack went like this: My defense conquered the ball. Either Fabregas or Nasri would get the ball to Chamakh, who than either set up the two inside forwards or went for goal himself. It worked wonders for me.

Oh my God oh my God oh my GOD! I'm literally waving my arms at each goal, what a cracking game! I finally put in a decent sequence of matches and then it culminates with this! Can I actually go all the way in the Cup? So far the match talks have worked wonders for those matches against bigger teams... I'm just ecstatic that my team have finally started to pick up pace!
Here are the fixtures, I just can't believe the last 4 results! Huuh, I mean, yes, absolutely expected this, we're thinking one game at a time, staying focused, it's the fruit of hard work and all that
F*ck I drew Porto. Good thing is if I pull a win out of the blue I will actually consider myself favourite to win it!
edit: I'm seriously hitting the jackpot since the tactic change (I changed tactics before the Varzim 3-1 win). Trashed Boavista and managed Espinho, now it's cup time again, I'm really confident I can get a positive performance against Porto!
I'm climbing up the table like nobody's business and if I get a decent result against Porto and manage a 3rd/4th place (or even a promotion!) in the Orangina I'm so jumping ship and trying to get in a bigger club
Holy ****. What a counter-attack performance by the team! I cancelled they're attempts to enter the box and was as effective on the counter as I could possibly be! This wouldn't be possible without the sequence of amazing morale-boosting results, and by Porto's dismissal of the game with weaker players, but I don't give a ****!
F*ck, dilemma keeps getting bigger: stick with Aves or move on to a bigger club? I might not get one, but if I do, particularly a Portuguese one, the chances of European success shoot through the roof; I mean I didn't set out to do a game where I'd pick a team up and give them success like a did with Aves, and at the same time I reckon this is the highest I can put them, I'll get trashed in Europe. Damn.
