Bumping this for an update.
Fake Madrid won their opener 7-0 via mercy rule. After six goals in the first half, we scored the winner two minutes into the second half for the win.
We went with a 2-3-1 and let our wide mids play the wings...we picked up a strong possession-based midfielder and he played in the middle. Our defenders ended up playing really high towards the end, getting to lob some long balls to me, the target man at striker. (Scored the opener on a beautiful one-two with a winger.
The other team mailed it in after we went up 3-0 (our goalie, bored as could be, trapped a weak shot from the other guys and went coast to coast...wove between three defenders and ripped a 20-yard screamer...heartless but freaking sweet), but I'm gonna owe our success to the tactical advice from the Almighty Soccer Board. So, from my intramural team, thanks!
