Football Manager 2007 Tips

Play as Chelsea
Buy 2 good strikers: Cavenaghi(very very underrated), Villa (£24m release clause is a bargain) those two, Drogba and Shevchenko should get at least 50 goals between them, probably a hell of a lot more. Dont worry about centre mids play a narrow midfield three of Lampard, Ballack and Essien, with Makelele for cover. Loan out Mikel (he'll replace Makelele and will be challenging for a place in the line up when he gets back). Loan out Ben Sahar (half decent, loan him out and he should improve in leaps and bounds, possible long term replacement for Shevchenko, and if it doesnt work, just buy someone else eg Mutu bad history at Chelsea but a bloody good palyer nonetheless). Play a back three of Terry, Carvalho and, if you can get him, Micah Richards. (sell Ashley Cole if you go overboard with the spending and Abramovich turns tight arse) Play the following at the start in an attacking 3-5-2 with wing forwards GK Cech, CB (R to L) Richards, Terry, Carvalho, CM (R to L) Ballack, Essien, Lampard, RWF Wright Phillips LWF Robben and two from Cavenaghi, Villa (£24m release clause is a bargain) Shevy and Drogba. on the bench Cudicini, A. cole (so you can switch to a more defensive formation), Makelele, and the two strikers who didnt start. This will 100% certain win the Prem and you wont be far off in any of the cups either. you have 75 to £80m to start off with Villa will have a 24 or 25m release clause Cavenaghi should be under 10mil, you will have to pay well over the odds for Richards but he matures into a world beating, versatile defender. Ive you dont like the sounds of Cavenaghi because youve never heard of him (strong possibility) then get Jermain Defoe not as good, imho, but not exactly bad either.
