Newcastle has an outstanding team with a few star players in all positions. You should look to strengthen the depth of the squad in the first season. You may want to look for a new right back as the current players just don’t cut it.
Tactic 1 :
This tactic works great Home and Away. I like to change my strategy depending on the situation. If you are doing counter make sure to set "play offside" to no.
This tactic is not my own. It is Kofloks Goals Galore. I find this works great against the smaller teams of the league.
Jonas Gutierrez|£11 m| high wages & he really isn’t that good.
Mike Williamson|£5 m| He may be a decent back-up player but there is better alternatives.
Sylvain Marveaux|£8 m| the offer is just too good to turn down.
James Perch|£5 m| the utility man just is not good enough
Wellington Nem|£3.5 m| Worth £9 m but has a release clause in his contract. Will be a star for years to come.
Adryan|£875 k| for such a small price this kid is a must buy in this year’s game.
Jores Okore|£1.3 m| Great young CB with bags of potential. Coloccini’s long term replacement.
Matthias Zimmermann|£4.5 m| cracking young Fullback. His stats will rise quickly the more games he gets.
- Make sure to ask your board to enhance your youth and training facilities.
- Try and get an extra feeder club as soon as possible and then keep getting new one every time you can
- Offer Demba Ba a new contract or you will lose him for a measly £7 m
- Check out some of the amazing youth players Newcastle have to offer and get them tied down to long term contracts.
I hope that the Newcastle United team guide has been useful, feel free to comment on mistakes or suggestions or even questions surrounding Newcastle. Post your success etc. in this thread as well if you like.
