  1. Does the position of the player card effect how he plays in a game? for example if I’m playing a 3-4-1-2 and i put a LW in the LM position will he play more like a LW?

  2. What formation do you prefer? Also, who is the best manager (bronze or silver) I could buy to get the 50% increase on contracts?

    1. Hi Tyler. I usually play in 4-4-2. That is the formation which suits better to me. Each player should try to find the right formation. About the managers, the answer is a bit long. There is no best manager ti get the 50% increase on contracts. The only difference is that gold managers gives 3%, silver managers gives 2% and bronze managers gives 1%. You need to make maths: prices vs %. My adivice: try to buy all gold rare managers up to 600 coins, then try to find silver rare managers up to 300 coins and then try to find bronze rare managers up to 200 coins.
