It's back.

I told Neymar he could be top earner at the club if he brought back the instant noodle hair. He accepted, and he might even convince some of the youngsters. 

The other caveat to his new contract - if we don't win La Liga, he's off to the North Korean league on loan for the remainder of the time we're paying him. 

Transfers

This first team is bloated to the gills with mediocre players that are almost impossible to sell, which is annoying. But we brought in lots of high teamwork, high stamina, hard tackling guys to try to make up for the lazy front 3. I have some money left over for emergencies, and I probably still need a backup keeper. Or maybe I'll retrain Fati. 

We also sacked all the non-fitness coaches and replaced them with drill sergeants to keep our golden - year forwards in shape. 

Shape

Based on a shape that I used many times in FMM20, but now I can set the IWB deeper. We're going to try to play a slower pace, possession game, and this worked well to create chances and not be too hard on players last year.

He played all season for me, glad he did because I hate getting them messages 🤣

January update

The tactic needed some work. Last year it produced patient, but assertive football that kept the ball well in the final third until we could slip through a runner. This year, it produced turgid mess that extended highlights won't even show me. We still got the win most games thanks to a truly absurd number of penalties, free kicks, and own goals, but in open play, MSN have been hopeless - wasteful, selfish, and unable to hit the target from 3 yards out more than one chance in 5.

The boys

We've had Neymar out for two months, and we played better in that time period with someone who doesn't shoot from 10 degrees angles - I'm excited to get him his 30 and then bench him. Messi has 11 or 12 penalties this year, and scored all of them. Suárez is the only one doing any honest work from open play.

So while I've never met a more frustrating group of attackers (and pjanic - another guy I'm losing patience with), I have to say the midfield and defense have been excellent, even the kids Araujo, Pedri, and Dest. 

Everything looks to be on target unless Neymar gets injured again, which is great because I'm going to stay far away from this group in the future!

First player I sell every time. Something in his staff report screen is a danger sign. Can't remember if it says he's unprofessional, lazy, or very enigmatic or all of the above. I just remember something in there screamed "SELL HIM" to me.

Anyway, good luck with this attempt. Hope it doesn't break you! 🤣

Yeah, he's not a good player to keep! But you can get a reasonable amount of money for him, so I sell him every time (i say every time, but it's only been twice! 🤣)

We're finished. We walked the league, winning on matchday 31, but lost to juve in the CL first knockout round after a red card for Hateboer. Motivation dropped like a rock after that, and we started scraping past teams 1-0 for a while. We won the cup/supercup as well.

Los Chiquillos

Messi stayed fit all season somehow, while Suárez missed about a month in total with two small injuries, and Neymar missed about three and a half months between three injuries.

The scores 

Messi scored 38, assisted 31, total of 69.

Suarez scored 38, assisted 11, total of 49.

Neymar scored 25, assisted 23, total of 48.

69 + 49 + 48 = 166 points

Again, I think I ended up putting too much focus on the results and not enough on pumping the goals though the front 3. That's something I'll need to work on, even though I aesthetically prefer goals spread across the team.
