    So I just had the CL final. But that wasn't the interesting part, it was the tactical battle leading up to the match.
    As you know, the formation you lead into a game is of vital importance, because changing during the game (which works fine) takes time and messes things up. So last night I saw he had 4-4-2 set. I therefore changed to a 4-5V-1 etc to counter it. With 60 mins to game time I noticed he'd gone to 4-3-3. So then I quickly changed to a 3-5V-2 defensive etc. Again I thought I better refresh and what do you know, he'd changed to 4-2-2-2 Butterfly. So then now I countered this with 4-1-2-1-2 Narrow diamond. The match then started..

    Season 67 - Week 4-screen-shot-2015-06-26-3.38.06-pm.jpg

    I was there watching near the start, with one supporter making it +2 possession. It meant a big bonus 38-62 initially.
    My counter formation quickly took advantage of his and off a corner, Steimel delivered a beautiful ball, which Bunce met with a header.

    And then he came into the game. It was on. He quickly realised what I'd done and changed to a 4-5V-1 counter. It is a good counter but 3-5V-2 is better. I think he did it because he was aware of me potentially then changing. A supporter also joined him, meaning possession was now 45-55 to me. He quickly started to have a few more shots on goal, so to be sneaky I made a substitution...to 4-5V-1 as well

    I think at this point he realised he couldn't get a foot in the door. Now that we had the same formations, my star player Bunce shone through and scored a brilliant solo goal in the 45min. It would go into the half like this.
    The game then went through the motions as all the big plays and counter maneuvering had been done. He made one last change to 4-3N-2W-1 at the end but it was too little, too late. Just to make sure, I quickly subbed my AML, attacked down the right flank and placed an extra MC in.

    Final score? 2-0 buddy! Now 5 CL trophies in a row!!!!!!
    Pretty stoked, this was by far and away the most interesting game I've played, and I'm glad it occurred on the big stage

    It seems that he did made an effort though to counter your formation, but he came late in the game. Post the ratings and starting lineup of both teams.

    Champs league final today, though 5th in the league and may not even get promoted lol. Have been trying to gain promotion without any power training or buying any players (so had 1 5* player, the rest 4 n 3*). Dipped into the transfer market mid season n bought 3 players verging on 6*. Object was to gain promotion and save packs and tokens, icing on the cake would be champs league with such a diminished team, though my opponent has a much better squad and has had at least 1 supporter during his matches so not confident!

    This is a very slow season for me, I'm not watching many matches, and I have to wait until Day 19 to sign a really "useful" players into the team.

    Well, I may have won the league with the late signings and gaining myself some interests into the game, as well as Donkhee City shockingly throwed the league lead with a 2-0 away defeat to bottommarker JJ Guanteng FC, despite having won the first leg at home 9-0 with the same team and same formation.

    I actually thought that FC Zelenit (currently 2nd) should have comfortably won the league with his fully loaded team, 4-5-1 V-style team, with four 6* players, but however, his team were left with 1 free replacement player, a DC, in the starting 11.

    The Champions League is definitely not in my radar, since I discovered how my team is performing, I may have topped the group with 12 points, but the two games I lost were the 2nd placed team in my group, Patrang City. He should have topped the group instead of me, but he slipped up. He lost 1-0 home to Luncai United, who finished bottom of the group, drew and lost aganist Polonne FC, 1-1 (A) and 2-3 (H), and he got knocked out aganist Hot Shot FC, with a 5-0 aggregate.

    My late boost of interest really helped me won the Champions League once again...

    AEPRE FC WON 2nd CHAMPIONS LEAGUE TITLE IN 120 MINUTES



    AEPRE FC have won their 2nd Champions League title of its rebirth, and 3rd title overall, after a 2-1 extra time victory over Fufe AG. Jim Chapman becomes an overnight hero after scoring the goal that wins the team this title.

    Both teams have a fair amount of attacking attempts stopped by each other's defense, until the 33rd minute, Rafael Couso tried to clear the ball, but instead the ball went to Jan Matejka, who is in the attacking position. With his solo run, he gets into the penalty box and scores the 1-0 lead for AEPRE FC.

    A Tan may have an attacking chance in the 51' and get through most of Fufe AG's defense, but the Turkish side's defender Adam Zakharov have made an unacceptable style of tackling on Tan at the edge of the penalty area. The referee pointed to the spot and awarded Fufe AG's 6* defender a yellow card.

    Mouhcine Zahoud, AEPRE FC's goalkeeper who have just recently became the last first 11 players to score at least 1 goal in any competition yesterday, taken the penalty. But instead of increasing the lead and gives the players and manager a bit of breathing space, his shot was too weak, and the ball finds Keith Healy's save hand. One minute later, Fufe AG equalizes and increased their hope of winning the title, when Connor Franta gives the ball to the opposition, and Zakharov scored a goal of redemption, after giving away the penalty which eventually missed.

    Fufe AG's MC Kevin Vogt tried to counter-attack in the 67', crossed the ball to one of his teammate who is waiting in the box, but Zahoud instead went in front of him and made a clean save without making a contact with the opposition.

    Vogt fouled one of the attacker, the referee awarded him a yellow card, Zahoud taken the free-kick, hoping to win the title within 90 minutes, but his shot founds one of the defender who made up the defensive wall. Corner kick awarded, but were headed clear by Couso. Oscar tried a long-ranged shot before the regulation time whistle, but that was not powerful enough.

    In the 94', the atmosphere at the Yut FCFC Stadium has completely changed, when Vogt tried to attack, but instead made a mistake by giving the ball to Tan, who is in the perfect position for attack. The Singaporean AMC took his chance quickly, before assisting Jim Chapman's winning goal. His teammate ran into him in celebration, as the mood were completely different for Fufe AG, who now have to desperately do everything to score a goal for penalty shootout, or two if they want to turn this around.

    Vogt then tried desperately to get through the defense, only to find out that the ball were stopped by AEPRE FC's defense, who only needed to get the ball out of their own half and hold the scoreline.

    Then the full-time whistle sounds from the referee, AEPRE FC have won the Champions League title once again, an unexpected journey in a season full of uncertainities. But all the players will really be proud of what they have achieved in the season that their performances are seemingly under their target and expectations. For the manager himself, his temper has really done it again, he never thought that the job is done before the game, after learning all the previous mistakes he have made, and he is the man who have made the fan happy, for the 2nd time in its return.

    Captain Borja Bartra, is the man who lifted the trophy.

    It will really be a happy ending for Shai Miari, who will hang his boots after this season, and possibly Alfie Deyes, who will now look for a new club after serving the team for four seasons.
