    Fun with OOP (out of position)

    You probably have figured out you can play an ST as winger with ok results, but have you tried anything more than 1 position away?

    I have a rather strangely skilled DMC, that used to be on my main team (where he rarely got a bad rating playing the attacking of my pair of DMCs) but is now with BvB's punchbag, Domino FC.

    He has been getting DREADFUL ratings, I never got a 5 from him before and hardly ever scored a goal!. Now, Domino FC is playing a similar formation as BvB, but has... slightly less skewed skills on the players since it is a team I do not buy Tokens for, its main role being friendlies with BvB and attempts to win its league. If the players stay long enough (or come from BvB) their skills will be made how I like, but many are fairly even.

    So.. I am not going to sell him (he's one of the few I have named for living football players) and he's 5 star at this level..... and 30 y.o.

    what to do..?. I tried using him as sub, still got 6's & 5's.

    Then one of my players got hurt for long injury and I don't have the reds. SO.... I decide to play him far out of position.
    So far he has gotten 7-6-7-7 in his new position, along with 2 goal and an assist.

    I am going to continue him OOP the rest of the Season and see what he does with it long term.


    Oh.. you might be wondering where he's playing?

    Nice job Cat. On an older OMA team I had a DMC rate 8 as ST with 1 goal and a assist.....but I can't claim responsibility - that was Otto Teem's idea (Assistant Coach).

    I did think I might get lucky with an AML/ML as ST but he got injured for 10 days.

    I have tried a DMC as AMC with good results but thats probably less surprising. (Might try it again to get some pics )

    I find it interesting how well some (really just a few) do better outside of their supposed zone.

    Yeah, for generated players in particular I try to remember a general sense of how their attributes looked (just in case I break them) - the last opportunity for this was on OMA with a high attacking DR with FK SA in my starting team but unfortunately I lost that team before he got to play MR or AMR.

    Yea, thats so, so interesting lol
    I remember the 1st Scout that I bougth, Jamie Rees, that was a DC and was playing as a MC during lot of time when I had lots of injuires 20 seasons ago...
    You know I treat my players trying to know about internal programming and we can see that some players are more defesive and some more attacking, doesnt matter the position and if one have time to prove players in friendlies can be surprised really...

    Really ? Maybe I have some last hope for this player ?
    I bought him (top price nordgen) first day, train him, give him sp, bench him, give him sa "one-to-one", NOTHING
    1 goal in 10 games. All my defenders have more goals than him. Should I put him oop ?
    Maybe a DC ... he is tall enough.

    I, of course, would try adding more to his physical.. and maybe try him at wing or AMC.
