Introducing the EPL Tactics Board

EPL Index Tactics Board

The team at are proud to bring a brand new feature on the website: The Tactics Board.

A totally FREE feature for all bloggers or tacticians that wish to share their tactics with an easy to use tactics board. The tactics board uses drag and drop functionality making it very easy to place players anywhere on the pitch.

Here are a few of the features from the EPL Index Tactics Board followed by some screenshots of the web application.

Select squads from 2008/09 onwards

The Tactics Board allows you to choose a season from 2008/09 onwards and then select any team that has played in that particular year. All of the squads will appear for you to choose your first eleven.

We’ll be adding a feature soon where you can manually add a player if you wish too. This will be available in the next few weeks.

2. Drag and Drop functionality to move players

The Tactics Board allows you to easily drag the eleven players you have chosen and to place them on the pitch in their respective positions.

Player selection

The season you’ve selected is clearly labelled in the top left corner for the home team and the top right for the away team. This allows bloggers to also compare the same team’s first eleven players with a choice of five seasons of first team squads.
