Match Reports

So I’ve decided to write match reports in one of two ways. If it’s an interesting game, or I am in a position to write a full report, I’ll be writing in real time, with tactical choices described as they happen (it’s a bonus having a laptop and a desktop!). Otherwise, I’ll simply be copying the FM report and adding any thoughts I may or may not have.
There will still be the Overview, Formations, Stats and Ratings screenshots transferred from the laptop after the game though sometimes these may come after a match report goes live, depending on how quickly I take them from the laptop.

Pre-season round-up

All the preparations are out of the way, new faces have been brought in, dead wood has been shipped out and tactics have been tried against a myriad of different opponents, so what have we learnt?

Well, we should have the players, barring any major injury crisis, to control this league. We’re going to need to be disciplined and work as a team to counter our lack of speed but Elland Road isn’t the largest of grounds, so that should work in our favour. The defence worries me a little in that respect, but the experience in the middle, combined with the youngsters Parker and Omozusi in at full back, should hold against the League 1 quality of striker, so long as Walker doesn’t start getting erratic on us.
