One of the questions I have received most is how to create a game model. Which aspects should you look at and how? This is my article trying to answer that.
RM ist das FC Barcelona von Spielverlagerung: Seinen Zenit hat er im Herbst 2011 gegen Osasuna erreicht. Funfact: Auf Nachfrage behauptet er immer, er sei MR und nicht RM. Über das folgende Lob freut er sich dann allerdings mit schlechtem Gewissen.
The 3-6-1 is a rarely used formation, which could bring some interesting opportunities in top-class football. The aim of this analysis is to give a small example of a system utilizing this formation.
