As something new to this story, I will have my fictional Manager, Guillaume Gump, restricted to some actions according to his reputation. At his first job, as no reputation is made yet, Gump will have little responsibilities of the pitch. The Director of Football will be in charge of most decisions for the club. eventually as Gump’s reputation grows, he will earn himself more responsibilities.
This game play will add up to my commitment to the game, as obviously I will look upon taking more action off the pitch.
As I will have practically no responsibility on bringing in players or selling them, I will concentrate my squad picking looking at the squad depth. Though for tougher leagues our squad would be considered very weak… to dispute the French National, I believe we have enough quality. Though if promoted, we will have to work hard to maintain ouserlves on the French Second Tier with this weak team. Most definitely look to reinforce the team if promoted. Guillaume Loriot was informed to be the best player of the squad, I do look to play him as the defensive MC in my squad. The funny thing, is that he doesn’t appear on the squad strength overview! I see that my main weakness is upfront, as all my forwards are really weak players, and don’t deserve to play football in a professional division.
For now, I will play the team in a 4411 with side midfielders and an attacking midfielder acting as a supporting forward. I decided to go with this formation to gain advantage through the middle of the park with the defensive CM the supporting DLP and the attacking AMC. Add to that, the wide midfielders, that will hold position through the flanks to add bodies on the way of any opposing teams.
Below is the fixture list till the end of the current season. As I said, USBCO is currently in 9th place, and 7 points behind the promotion zone. I believe we can fight our way higher up on the table, and why not, get promoted!
