Purely due to it being FIFA based however much I enjoy a draft (I love a draft!) it's a damn sight easier to start with prebuilt clubs. Drafts and FIFA result in having to send all the players to free agents at a given club, this has to be done in bits and bobs as it has a minimum number of outfield players a squad can have so you have to bring some in as you go along and then ship more out. It's rather time consuming!

Could also do it auction style - NFL fantasy type of thing

If people want drafts/auctions I will do it, just be aware though that it would take several hours prep time to put it together.

Well done Trebs.

As we all know, winning a game of Sheep that you collated the results for means nothing.

One of the things I'd like to change for season 2 of Fifa is to increase game time.
Think currently it's a little short and forces teams to go high pressure to go for the wins when it's not always favourable tactics.
Obviously it's dependent on how time I have in evenings but I'm happy to look at making the games longer.

Couple of big games for you Twist to really see if you've got real title credentials Wink

Think it's great though that one of the teams that isn't full of Galacticos like mine/Afro/Nando is the trailblazer. Think from week 1 you'd embraced the custom tactics and it's certainly worked, played 7 games undefeated and only having conceded 2 goals.

Custom tactics definitely made a difference for me, since week 4 when I started using them, I've got 3 wins and a draw against Twist

I didn't even realise we could use custom until a couple of weeks ago. Hero had publicised it, but it completely went over my head.

So now I'm playing catch-up a bit.

Yeah I've used custom tactics from the off and it's only been from my own downfall that I've tasted defeat and gone too OTT attack with them.

Indeed. I have coped alright but some big strikers are going to test that GC. I believe it is all about find a way of playing that suits the important players in your team. If I take credit for anything then it is how Balde and Willian have played - 3 goals each and a few assists. I have it step up to play to their strengths and it has worked. Not sure why I am so defensively sound though - I do think Torriera, Dendoncker and Partey work really well as 2 player combination in whatever order so that might be it.

If I do win the league, and it is a big if, I wouldn't go overboard about it. A lot of people have been finding their feet early on. I just did my research as usual and plodded along really.

Have to say, even if i was last, I have really enjoyed the league. I think we can all say it has worked.

Ronaldo 1 goal in 1 appearance so far. It was a belter of a goal aswell. It looks like he's bought some winning mentality over here at Jets.

Shows a level of randomness on Fifa (which I like).

In the first run of the game, with the same sets of tactics, Ronaldo was gash.

I get through one game and I'm already itching for the next game, to put into practice what I think I've learnt from the game before.

I would like to trial injuries/cards in a few test games if possible for season 2. I know people were hesitant to it but think it adds another layer onto the games.

Yeah I was slightly disappointed there weren't injuries/red cards at the start but if you can trial it out and make it work, it'll only benefit the league more imo.
