But who is playing who? We have 4 groups of 4, with each playing each other once. The top 2 going onto the QFs...

Oi @Gizzy you’ve got my team wrong. I have Ebrahimi as a centre mid, not this Abdolahzadeh character you’ve put in.

Could really ruin my chances here. #shambles

I like how nobody has cheesed it by going with three strikers. :thup:

@Gizzy thanks for all of this but just to put my wing backs to be full backs please (but to go forward obviously) as yes looks too scary in upper half of pitch.

@Gizzy, please put Banega and Kovacic as CMs rather than DMs, and Coutinho also as a CM (central of the three) rather than an AM.

Player roles:

Butland – GK – Defend

 

Guerreiro – CWB – Auto

Lindelof – CD – Defend

Varane – BPD – Cover

Carvajal – CWB – Auto

 

Kovacic – Central Midfielder – Defend

Banega – Deep-lying Playmaker – Support

Coutinho – Advanced Playmaker – Attack

 

Hazard – Inside Forward – Attack

Zivkovic – Inside Forward – Support

 

Muriel – Complete forward – Support

 

Thank you!

I wasn't sure how we were playing the game (still not 100% now :D ) so just kinda picked randomly.

Didn't realise we had to pick a functioning 11 until I had like 3 picks left /o\

Only Chicha is a proper out-and-out striker from those though.

I completely forgot that tracksuit manager has no mental attributes. :D

It probably won't influence much, anyway, since there will be no tactical instructions during game.

I'll just roll with the Sarri mode then. :cool:

He hasn't been generated into the game due to low rep. Any other player?

What! He is supposed to exist :( https://sortitoutsi.net/football-manager-2018/player/23127927/omid-ebrahimi

Oh just put whoever you like in then, the core of my team should be enough to get me through the group without Ebrahimi anyway.

He is in the database for the game, but now that the game has been created the lower rep players are left out :(

OTF World Cup - Group C Match 1

@Andyh21 Vs @Bliss Seeker

845368653_Match1.thumb.png.b4aeedc088da7a251a0c6fb3c4602ec3.png

The moment we've all been waiting for.... The OTF World Cup finally kicks off

Lets have a look at the teams

851134412_OTFAndyh21vOTFBlissSeeker_MatchLineUps.thumb.png.48a8cc16a2258a1eb620547f782ced03.png

The spotlight will be on the worlds best player CRonaldo and well as the new kid on the block Mbappe.

Bliss Seeker take an early lead with a goal from Rojo in the 14th minute. And they lead at half time.

207246167_OTFAndyh21vOTFBlissSeeker_MatchReview.thumb.png.abf3f3aaeb90bbdda3b42508f16c0f52.png675420404_OTFAndyh21vOTFBlissSeeker_AnalysisOTFAH.thumb.png.f09997c1ccceff243b913ede2b8f957b.png

Bliss Seeker have had a lot less of the ball but more shots to their name.

Early in the second half Bliss Seeker double their lead with a lovely worked move which ends with Mbappe's tidy finish. 2-0

A quick reply....One from the training ground as a wide free kick is worked to Ronaldo and he isn't missing from there. 2-1

And that how it finished. Bliss Seeker has the first win of the OTF WC!

The video won't centre :mad: and play it at 0.75 speed, as it won't upload slower.

OTF World Cup - Group A Match 1

@adhikapp Vs @Wigmore

match.thumb.png.fbc558511e6ebc13f6c228c881d646c5.png

After the excitement of the opening game, expectations were high for the second match. Underdogs Wigmore are looking to make a massive upset here.

Neymar will want to be the star of the show and I don't really know any of Wigmore's team :D 

1996431818_OTFadhikappvOTFWigmore_MatchLineUps.thumb.png.a5b0250ae5b294126ce769127ead9157.png

0-0 at half time. And it was as boring as the scoreline suggests, a few shots but nothing worthy of noting.

447650924_OTFadhikappvOTFWigmore_AnalysisOTFA.thumb.png.824634660155d3e9ed8e4aaed0328794.png

A little more action in the 2nd half and Adhikapp really went for the win, but they had to wait until stoppage time to get it. A delightful through ball made the finish easy for Werner. 1-0
