Requires Team is singular so the verb should agree, However, many people nowadays use a plural verb with words like team, group, gang. In this case, though, given the context, I'd go for grammatical correctness.

Strictly speaking it should be No1 (because of plural subject) . But many Britons, and probably Americans, are as confused as you both are, and you will see both forms used.

Whether or not it's an "official" rule, I think the usual practice is to go with the first of two subjects linked by "or"; in other words, "you or your team require." I am sure, though, that the subject of "had an argument" is "I" not "me," so it should be "My friend and I had an argument."

In cases of conflict (flip-of-the-coin type of doubt) with compound subjects linked by "or", grammarians are satisfied if you use the number of the noun closest to the verb. Examples: 1. If Tom or his friends want lunch, they can raid the refrigerator. 2. If those boys or any other kid wants to use the library, sign them in. If you consider "team" to be singular, use "requires."

REQUIRES Most regular verbs transform from singular to plural by removing the "s," while subjects often do the opposite. Read more: http://www.ehow.com/facts_5896803_correct-use-singular-plura l-verbs.html#ixzz2oJUfEvEp
