    Here is one of the posts concerning Mourinho F.C that I posted last year.

    http://forum.topeleven.com/top-eleve...tml#post361344

    I dominated his team and yet lost 1-0.

    By the way, have a look at the possession there.

    Could anyone tell me how possession affects the game?? And how possession is calculated
    Known factors which affect b.p.
    - Playing home, +5% if you have an almost full stadium
    - 8% from the presence of the managers
    - +2% from every friend/supporter who watching the game - the limit is (plus) five supporters 5X2%=10%
    There are penalties if playing illegal formation : no players in one line (def/mid/att), no players in the wings
    players out of position (switching GK wit ST gives 20-80)

    Factors that we don't know if and how affect the b.p.
    - The quality of the players > yes, but don't know how much
    - morale and condition
    - The most "proper" formation and orders
    - maybe bonus

    Ball possession has a minor effect in the progress of the game as many other things that affect a little but some times this little is enough to give you the victory.
    In this thread, post #22, in the second picture you can have an idea about a "useless" b.p.

    Playing with Mourinho is another story.
    It's a nordeus prank - lol

    So possession isn't really an important indicator of winning the match ???
    And what makes more attacks at the opponent target??
    Which formation would win: one with a lot of midfielders or with more attackers if both had the same quality??

    it's not (only) the formation.
    it's a combination of many things.

    Important things
    - High quality of players, in a good form, with a good "chemistry"
    - Presence (and right coaching) of the manager
    - Luck/roll dice

    Minor things
    - Formation
    - Individual orders
    - arrows
    - b.p.
    - supporters
    - victory bonus
    - training bonus
    - special abilities
    - morale
    - condition

    I had (mistakenly) removed Mou from my friends list, didn't really knew that the heck was going on then
    AH AH — manager of Atlético Kolkata. Named in honour of my hometown club, Atlético de Kolkata, which won the inaugural edition of Indian Super League in 2014.

    A good defence is the best offense.

    It means you get more chances, it doesn't mean they go in. Another thing I've noticed is that it can actually harm your team, I play much better when I don't watch the games a lot of the time - I think giving up the position is giving my players counter attacking chances or something.
