USo i finally decided to blog my fm13 career as saints fc manager. After several starts and fiddles with tactic, training and formations etc, i started my career. Playing classic mode with english leagues. So my first port of call is always the same when playing as saints on fm, the free agents page, with some fantastic players availble on a free for my team such as reo coker and merida who i signed and they both walked into the first team. The next thing i set about doing was to send the scouts out on extensive searches, which is basically selecting about the first 100 players in each position i have. I will return to this subject in a minute, but on to tactics and formation now. Looking to utilise the 3 key players in my opinion, i look at there best formation and roles. The players i looked to utilise the most were; adam lallana, a tricky right footed left midfielder who is also the club captain, gaston ramierez, saints record signing, a young future star fir uraguay described as the uraguain kaka and morgan sniederlin, a french deep midfielder with a high work rate, good range of passing and likes to get stuck in. On this basis i decided to play 433, with a flat back four Dm to Cm a Left and Right winger and a lone striker. Playing a counter attacking style of football.
