My Crewe Alexandra team after being promoted to the nPower Championship (note I got a financial takeover):

GK: Phillips
RB: Tootle
CB: Marcano (from Rubin Kazan)
CB: Davis
LB: Mellor
RM: Moore
CM: Guedioura (from Nottingham Forest)
CM: Leitner (c) (from Borussia Dortmund)
LM: Thomas (from West Brom)
ST: Niang (from AC Milan)
ST: Pukki (from FC Schalke 04)

My defense is pretty solid; with Marcano always staying back. Davis has gone up 5 ratings to 65, and he is a very strong player at the back. He wins quite a lot of headers from corners and since he can't really finish, I normally lay it off to Guedioura. Tootle and Mellor at the full back positions are very consistent. They both have gone up 3/4 rating throughout the season, with Tootle coming in to the starting XI later on in the season and Mellor suffered a couple of injuries; so to have gone up those 3/4 ratings is nice. Leitner is playing amazingly, 19-year-old signed for Borussia Dortmund. He is now 20 and getting miles better. He scored the most goals for me during the Capital One Cup, in which I got knocked out in the semi-finals by Tottenham. To be honest, I am amazed I made it that far, I guess my financial takeover really aided me. He gets several assists and pulls the strings in my team, also my FK taker with his accuracy improving. Guedioura was signed in the January transfer window. I needed one at the time since Leitner, and Murphy were injured so I had no firm CMs. Anyway, he has made an impressive start. His shot power is incredible, he really can rifle them into the back of the net. I found him to be tank-y, his strength is a nice advantage to have in the midfield, doesn't really ever get caught in possession. Not to mention that he scored 2 goals to win me the Johnstone's Paint Trophy. Moore, gone up 5 ratings. His pace is monstrous now, he burns past any left back he comes across. He has a nice cross, which almost always seems to find a striker's head. Shooting isn't always the best option with him, however his finishing and long shots are really improving, both have increased by 8 ratings. He's played in every game this season and there is never hesitation on who else I can slot into that RM spot. At LM, I have Jerome Thomas, signed from West Brom. He is almost perfect at that LM position, though unfortunately reaching the 30-year-old mark. His 4 star skills accompanied by his excellent dribbling is a great combo to get past players. His pace isn't too shabby, enough to get past the full backs in League 1, although I don't see him staying in my squad too long, age and pacey full backs will soon end his career. He does score goals from time to time, 11 in all competitions, and is injury prone. Now onto my strikers, I will start off with M'Baye Niang. Oh my lord, this guy is amazing. He has scored 26 goals in all competitions for me after receiving him on a full season loan during transfer deadline day at the start of the season. He will punish the opposition as soon as he gets into that 18-yard box. So clinical, and on both feet. He gets past players with ease, leaves them for dead, and can really pile drive a shot into any corner he likes. Unfortunately, I'm not sure if I will have the funds to sign him now, it depends on how much the board give me at the start of the new season. Now last, but certainly not least; Teemu Pukki. I signed this guy during the January transfer window, after spending a long time looking for the perfect striker. One thing that really made my mind up was that when you look at his stats on the transfer window page it says 'Has that something special' and that was the first time I had seen that. I spent all my remaining money on him and I don't not regret it one bit. He seems to be able to score from almost anywhere in the opponent's half. His shots are just amazing. He stands at 6' 2", and can really jump to win those headers which is useful considering the amount of crosses I produce. He has a bright future at the club, and I really plan on getting into the Premier League after a few seasons, so hopefully he will play well in that campaign.

As for Ultimate Team, I've done a bit of trading now and stand at 500k. Since I can never decide what team to make, do you guys have any scenarios or ideas that will help me to make a team. I've seen one where you draw a number, scroll across that many leagues and see where you end up; then you do the same with formation and you make a team of the league that you ended up with in the formation you got. I've also seen ideas to do with drawing cards and numbers being assigned to ratings, suits assigned to chosen leagues/nationalities etc. So if you guys have an idea, then please throw it forward. :3
