Against my better judgement I am going to try and make Ballotelli work in the side. FM treats him harshly.

Tactic Master Good luck playing your tika-taka style with England. You obviously didn't watch the Italy match (or any other for that matter):D

So...... anyone want to take on Holland in a friendly?

Team is plagued by injuries, van Bommel, Robben, VDV, van der Wiel all down :(

So do we just choose our tactic now, and not the squad? Also, I'm a bit confised about Germany and those 'issues we cant discuss here'.....

Struggling between choosing the best players in game vs the ones who have actually done well in tournament. Namely Ballotelli and Cassano. May have to leave Ballotelli out as his match ratings for Man City were poor and he was shipped on loan to FC Porto and because of his personality would perhaps be more of a hindrance than an asset unfortunately.

I usually use shouts/tactical changes depending on how things are going so really not sure how I'm going to set up my tactic as of yet.

I am also looking for friendlies for Portugal if anyone is up for it. The latest date you can ask for a friendly is 2th June as I'd like to have my team rest the last 10 days.

My tactic should be up in the day after I have seen how they adapt.

5ergio, how about a friendly vs Russia?

Any date will do but I would prefer a late May fixture.

I really have no clue how to play Holland, they look tremendous offensively but so dreadful defensively except for the GK. This is going to be a challenge

So, let me get this right - we now need to send you a list of the players we want in our finals squad, along with tactics.

Just remind me how many players need picking for the squad in total, and 3 of these need to be keepers right.

Cheers.

You need to send Stothy your tactic first so he can use team blend and then when team registration is required he will upload a new save so we know who is available. We have until 00:01 on Sunday to submit our tactics or defaults will be used. He explains at the bottom of the teams lists post.

There is very little in the way of young talent in Russia. I wouldn't be surprised If I end up with the oldest squad. But hey I only need to use them for one tournament. Gonna thrash 'em like a company hire car.

Kk guys! I'll accept the both friendly requests from England & Russia. Late May match with Russia, one week before that England if it's ok with you? It'll be best if stothy picks the date I suggest as I want my team to rest the last 10 days to EUROs that's for sure!

After I sent my tactic I ran with Italy through the Euro's and got to the final (holidaying games) where I was hammered 4-0 by France. I am playing Ballotelli regardless of his attitude though and he missed 3 CCC in the final. Don't worry though Mario, I will keep the faith.

Babingoosh Send your .tac file attached to an e-mail to stothy at this address - jakestothard@hotmail.co.uk. Or your could upload your .tac file to a file upload site and send stothy the link in a PM.

Stothy, any chance I could change my tactic that I sent you please? It's more or less the same but i've found it brings much better results, including a 5 - 0 win over Spain :)

I'm fine with that, I think I will extend the deadline to 00:01 Monday as not everyone has mailed me yet. I think it's only fair to give everyone a chance!

Yeah, exactly this. Around Feb, lots of dates pop up for friendlies. I'm guessing the calender refreshes itself after new year.

Just holidayed my Russian tactics through the Euros. Got to the final where I was beaten by France 2-1 with a Benzema 90th minute goal.

Still, If I beat Italy 6-1 in the actual contest I will be chuffed as punch!

There's only one difference for us, we have to play against a proper tactic and a human person :( Same here though, if I beat Spain 5 - 0 i'd be over the moon :D
