Assistant Manager: “This is your squad. In this scenario you are taking over a prestigious club full of big names mainly from the EPL with a smattering of stars from La Liga!
Your task this week is to pick your favourite formation and select the 11 players you think will perform the best this coming gameweek, leaving the rest on your bench.
To assist you, I’ve provided information about the player’s recent form and the difficulty of their team’s next opponent, plus some intelligence on how many of your rival managers have selected each player in previous games.
Start by familiarising yourself with your squad. Then scroll down to decide what formation you want to play.”
Assistant Manager: “As we have only just joined the club, we’d better start with some Classic formations that will be instantly familiar to the players. Once we have had more time to work with our squad however we’ll be able to really stamp our own style on the team! But for now let’s keep things simple.
Note: Unlike other experiences you may have had, you will be selecting a team that could realistically play together in real life. Both formations below require one defensive midfielder for example, as well as right and left backs. But don’t worry! All you have to do is go to the drop down box in each position – it is impossible to get it wrong as you can only select players eligible for that role! The only thing to look out for is not to select the same player twice!
This game is intended to have give realistic scores that make sense to fans who watch the match.
So rather than worrying too much about fantasy points, you can go ahead and just pick the players you think are best in reality – primarily thinking about who is going to win the game, score goals and assist. Defensive players benefit strongly from keeping clean sheets too.
In addition to those basics, the game will give players a natural bonus for good performance in their individual role.

|Forget Fantasy. Embrace Reality. In this game each player will get a base scoring bonus that will reward them for good performance in their individual role. But unlike standard fantasy games we don’t ask managers to adapt to our scoring system, we adapt to you. All you need to know is what most fans would expect that role to do and the game will take care of the rest. Here is a summary of what to look for:|
