Changes for 2010/2011

Thought I might as well start this now, so any idea people have can be documented. We can wait until nearer the start of the season before actually deciding anything.

A couple of early ideas

Red cards
A red card for an AM or ST should result in -3 from the team's score, to reflect the decreased chances of scoring with 10 men.
A red card for a GK, CB, FB or CM should result in +3 to the opponent's score, to reflect the increased chances of scoring against 10 men.

Full backs
Teams should have to field two full backs. The caveat to this would be that classification of defenders would be more lenient. Managers could choose to reposition certain centre backs (players like Richards, Brown, Cuellar, Givet) as full backs if they wanted to.

Loans
This was mentioned before, and I think it's an interesting idea. Managers could loan players to cover for injuries at any point during the season, paying a fee every Gameweek the players remains at the club (whether he's picked or not). Players can either be loaned from other managers, or from the free agents list.

I'm sure you all agree these are amazing ideas, and will make the game about a thousand times more exciting.

Agree with the red cards idea and I suggested the 2 full back rule once before. The loan idea sounds complicated but I wouldn't say I was opposed to it.

But what if I want to use Maradona esque tactics and play four centre backs at once?

But yeah, the three centre backs rule is pretty odd. Was clearly the most advantageous formation to play IMO.

So I have Carragher. He's one of these versatile defenders who could be assigned as a FB if need be, right?


Not really sure of the point of the red card revamp. Is it needed? In a real life situation, a defender getting sent off results in an attacker getting sacrificed whilst if an attacker gets sent off there's usually a rejig in formation. Either way, it's pretty much always 4-4-1 and you're more likely to conceede and less likely to score.

Should probably be something like +1 and -2, so the points swing both ways.

If you wanted to reposition Carragher, I think that would be OK. Obviously he'd be less valuable (3 clean sheet points instead of 4) but it makes up for the relative lack of good/consistent full backs.

Could the re-assigning be done at will, or during the season?

I've had so much defensive trouble this year, it kinda worries me not to have that versatility.

I have no sig. If anybody would like to make me one, please inform me
