    @YungGaffer has time to make a choice until S2 starts (as europe doesn't count). I hope to do the update by tonight, as I'm having internet problem since yesterday and they still haven't been able to fix it 😕 And it's not handy on my phone to make that big update 😅 IF the internet problems are still happening tonight, I will drop some hints on the league table 😜

    Hello and welcome to the 11th instalment of the Badges Of Honour challenges. The concept came from @Rob and the links to the badges can be found here: This challenge only really came to me in the last day or so but I was eager to get a fun challenge out. I thought who better to dedicate a challenge too than Christian Eriksen, who unfortunately collapsed on the pitch at the Euros this past summer. It’s unknown at the moment if he will be able to carry on his career. But the main thing is he survived it. So why not make a challenge all about him? The Challenge So the challenge in this is easy, I love fun and simple challenges for the badges, something people can just crack on with and have fun. It’s all about his all round contribution. You will be scored on goals, assists and his average rating over two seasons. Now you’re probably thinking how I’ll be judging his average rating, well it’s quite simple, if he has an average of 7.01 for the season thats an extra 1 point, if he gets a rating of 8.34 over the season it’s an extra 134 points for that season. Anything under 7, there is no bonus points. Thought that would spice it up a bit. Club Choice I will allow any clubs to be used, so we can have a bit of a variation in attempts. Score You will be scored on goals, assists and average rating for each of the two seasons in all competitions. For the average rating, for every 0.01 above 7.00, you will get 1 point, so an average rating of 7.34 is 34 points extra for that season. If you get 8.34, that’s an extra 134 points. Any questions just ask. REMEMBER ITS TWO SEASONS SO YOU HAVE A CHANCE AT EXTRA BONUS POINTS EACH SEASON. How To Gain The Badge To gain the badge you to hit the benchmark which is 30 contributions each season, the 30 can consist of either goals or assists. You also need Christian to have an average rating above 6.99 for each season. Rules No unlockables; No cheating; Own formations; And that means don’t steal the BP and change one instruction - you know who you are! That is cheating; Any badge and reputation; Any database; Transfers, etc, allowed; You can attempt the challenge multiple times, but only your top score will be on the leaderboard; Again, don’t be a cheat Enjoy and if you think I’ve left something out, which would not surprise me, just let me know 😁 Leaderboard 1. 2. 3.

    Cheers. You know who I feel (almost) sorry for? @Kun Aguero. He’s 5th now. He’s got 3 games vs Vibe teams, all away from home. BUT he has an average of <1 point per game (based on his previous 5 away games vs Vibe teams). That would give him only 2-3 points from these 3 games + whatever he can get from the other 2 games vs bottom half teams (4-6 points?). After being in the top 2-3 for most of the season, he could end up doing a Leicester + finishing outside the top 4 (and missing out on his ‘$25m’ reward for not finishing in the top 4). Ouch.

    Damn. Not good. Pros: We’re in 3rd, just 1 point behind the leaders, with better goal difference. 4 of my 5 games are against non-Vibe teams (but 3 are away from home) Cons: Leaders @Rich / Bale won EVERY GAME last month AND get their injury/morale heal bonus. Urgh. No Messi, no Aguero - am relying on Ronaldo + in the Poacher role either Muller or Aubameyang?! My 5th remaining game is against @geordiekrispy / Blue Star, who smashed me 3-0 previously (but Ramos got an early red card!) Damn - we are STILL in Europe - even if Titjes heals any Euro injuries, the players will still be tired / lower % condition If @d e m a r a i / DAMWON wins his game in hand, then we’re only 2 points from 8th place + out of the Europa league places for next year! Cant believe how tight this is.

    Hey guys, excuse me for the long wait in updates. I had a very busy weekend, no time to post the update. I also made a mistake with the Health & Morale boost, so... I gave everybody a health & morale boost at the end of February to be as fair as possible.. 😕😅

    My turn next... Free Transfer Revealed! Instead of just stealing a player - I‘ve agreed something fairer with @leedsunited87 / Leeds City ... which league officials have approved (thanks @Titjes) The Agreement: I draft Kane as my free player Kane is swopped with Lukaku + a $10m at the earliest opportunity * This means I get Lukaku (last seasons best goalscorer + a personal favourite of mine) AND Leeds City get Kane as replacement star player. * Note - I’m thinking of the $10m as a “thank you for the free replacement player”. While Leeds United are rumoured to be gutted losing their main striker - both teams are reportedly delighted to have new Star Strikers early in the upcoming season. Hopefully this is fairer to the team losing one of their best players + keep this as the world’s most exciting league!

It's been a rough week (University), didn't want to bring my negative energy here but things have gotten better 🙂 Season Review: Yung Kings are probably in last with no season objective met but hoping we reached the *important* Euro Cup, just to boost my ego 🤣 Sacked Manager: Yung Kings are proud to replace "The Special One" with the only manager to win the Champions League in three consecutive seasons, Zinedine Zidane 🥳 (I hope i haven't wasted 10M)

    This was what I was trying to say yesterday ... The above shows why Out on Bale (and to a lesser extent myself) have a slight advantage in the final month - as have fewer games vs top-half Vibe teams, and more games vs bottom-half non-Vibe teams. And the above shows the average points / game for each team (vs other Vibe teams only). Yung Kings has the worst record against Vibe teams, while DAMWON has the best record vs Vibe teams so far! As an example, I would expect @d e m a r a iDAMWON to win both of his final month's home games vs Vibe teams (vs Vice City + vs Leeds City), and probably get a point away from home (vs Yung Kings). Edit - @Rich / Out on Bale have only 2 remaining games vs Vibe teams both are at home (vs Sandwich Army + vs Kun’s Army?). Sounds good for them, BUT Out on Bale have a poor record at home vs Vibe teams - from memory: 1 win, a 2-3 draws and 2-3 losses. So while Rich should get 4 points from these 2 games, this is where he can be beaten + drop points (please!)

    Final Month League Surely this is @Rich / Out on Bale’s to lose?! They are clear favourites: Currently top of the league by 1 point. Have activated their injury + morale bonus. Only play 2 Vibe teams in their last 5 games (both at home), everyone else plays +3 Vibe teams (except one)! No ECL semi finals to worry about. They won EVERY GAME last month, if that repeats then they uncatchable. Will @Rich‘s team bottle it?! Way down the odds are the dark horses / outside bet to win: DanEnglish FC Currently 3rd in the league, just 1 point behind the leaders but with better goal difference. Uniquely, only plays ONE Vibe team, with the other 4 against bottom half non-Vibe clubs (but are mostly away). However they’re missing Messi, Aguero, and distracted by Europe. Everyone else plays 3+ games against Vibe teams, of which 1-2 are away. Key Stats: in Vibe vs Vibe league matches: the home team is averaging almost TWO points per game, while the away team averages less than ONE point per game. this could be season-defining for Vibe teams who have many away games to Vibe teams.

    The Journey of Ianis Hagi - Season 22

    Season 21 As I mentioned earlier, we are heading towards the finish line here as just after his 42nd birthday Ianis decided he’d had enough. I asked him to reconsider but he was adamant that this was his time, so he’ll retire either at the end of this season or a year later at the end of his current deal. I had been keeping an eye on his contract page and it always looked like he’d sign again, so I was tempted a few times to extend him but just thought I’d hold off and see what would happen as he got towards the end of his deal. Obviously now it’s in my mind that I could’ve extended him at the beginning of this season and we may have got another four seasons after this one, which I’d have been happy enough to play out. On the other hand, I’m happy enough with this as at least it’s going to be a clean finish. A very strong season for the team but it didn’t really feel like it as we seemed to get a lot of injuries and often a couple out from same position at the same time. Players from other positions then have to cover and then you’re short in their positions which isn’t ideal. Thankfully we coped with it all ok. I decided to play Hagi in the Champions League final as I thought I may as well as it may well be his last. It was fairytale stuff as he scored opening goal and assisted another as we beat Barcelona fairly comfortably. I even kept him on for the full game and he just about managed to see the final whistle. It was evident from early on that Hagi just wasn’t quite as prolific but he was still assisting really well and ended up with 33 for the season, which is his best yet at Galatasaray. His 22 goal total was well down compared to recent seasons but the total contributions was still over one per game and I can’t really ask for much more than that. I have replays on and do watch a few and did notice this season there were a fair few times he’d shoot straight to the keeper who’d save it only for the striker to follow it up and score. So that’s an assist for Hagi where in years gone by I’m thinking the original shot would’ve just been flying in more times than not. Season 22 I got to the end of the season with the Club World Cup just about to start, so obviously I was fairly keen to move over to the new season and see whether Hagi would still be available. He was available for the first match and put up a good show with a goal and an assist. Second match arrived and he was still there. Again, he very much produced with a goal and an assist. He was still available for the third match and unfortunately that’s where our run ended as Spurs knocked us out. At this stage, it was looking like he was going to play out the whole of the last year of his deal, so we had to get the squad ready for the season. I prepared the squad with a couple of new signings and then it came! So, I guess this is the end but I’ll be back later with one last update to round things up. Ianis Hagi Rangers Season 01: 55 goals and 43 assists in 50 games Season 02: 46 goals and 45 assists in 51 games Season 03: 17 goals and 20 assists in 21 games Rangers Total: 118 goals and 108 assists in 122 games Villarreal Season 03: 31 goals and 29 assists in 32 games Season 04: 34 goals and 22 assists in 44 games Villarreal Total: 65 goals and 51 assists in 76 games Inter Milan Season 05: 40 goals and 48 assists in 49 games Season 06: 38 goals and 32 assists in 37 games Season 07: 42 goals and 44 assists in 53 games Season 08: 48 goals and 43 assists in 52 games Season 09: 42 goals and 47 assists in 54 games Season 10: 36 goals and 51 assists in 51 games Season 11: 39 goals and 48 assists in 54 games Season 12: 27 goals and 43 assists in 38 games Season 13: 50 goals and 26 assists in 55 games Season 14: 32 goals and 31 assists in 49 games Season 15: 31 goals and 31 assists in 47 games Season 16: 37 goals and 24 assists in 45 games Season 17: 32 goals and 30 assists in 47 games Season 18: 1 goal and 1 assist in 2 games Inter Milan Total: 495 goals and 499 assists in 633 games Galatasaray Season 18: 36 goals and 26 assists in 49 games Season 19: 33 goals and 26 assists in 48 games Season 20: 41 goals and 28 assists in 47 games Season 21: 22 goals and 33 assists in 48 games Season 22: 2 goals and 2 assists in 3 games Galatasaray Total: 134 goals and 115 assists in 195 games Grand Total: 812 goals and 773 assists, which equals 1,585 contributions in 1,170 games Thank you.

    The league table shows 3 FASCINATING things ... Green Box - only 2 POINTS separates 2nd from 8th place. That’s crazily tight. Red Box - all of us have SCORED between 47 to 51 goals in the league. That’s crazily similar - especially as some spent much more than others on attackers! ... Question - did some of us overpay / overspend on attackers?! Blue Box - this is the real difference between our teams. The top teams only conceded ~20 goals*, while 7-9th have conceded ~30 to 35 goals. That’s crazily impactful ... Question - does that mean it’s more effective to improve your defence, instead of your offence? * Note - the only outlier is @Rich / Out on Bale, who are 3rd but have conceded 34! ...

    Leeds city are delighted with the swap deal that will bring the much fancied England goalscorer Harry Kane to the glorious playing side of Elland Road. Asked the question from the local paper, does Kane have what it takes to fill the boots of Lakaku. He answered, with much pleasure, I'm just glad this move has sorted out, I want to get my head down and prove the doubters wrong. The Yorkshire Evening News commented that this is the best signing since Leeds signed characters such as, Viduka, Radebe, Speed etc

    Tottenham’s Peak Years - S1 results

    Season 1 With the transfers completed and already discussed, let’s have a look at how we did overall. The team performed better than I expected, bringing the League title, Europa Cup, and FA Cup back to our dusty trophy cabinet. Losing in the fourth round of the Carabao Cup was a disappointment, as we missed a chunk of potential goals/assists, but it was a bit of a blessing in disguise as it allowed games to space out more. Our three main lads looked like this at the end: As you can see they all look pretty darn excellent after one season of training. Asensio is just beautiful, aside from his physicals. We ended the season with a contribution of 221. This is the most that I’ve ever had in one season of the Peak (at least in a published career) and I’m pleased. It does need to be tempered with the fact that a lot of our matches were early-round Europa teams, which are goals and assists offerings. It does my make me chuckle that all three contributed so well but none had an average rating of greater than 8! Thanks for reading! Rob x

    Free Transfer: SHORTLIST REVEALED! Which player will get “stolen” by DanEnglish FC as their free transfer reward for winning the league ... ? Their shortlist has been sensationally leaked to Sky Sports + contains some world class players. SHORTLIST Mbappe - @broodje kip / Sandwich Army Lukaku - @leedsunited87 - Leeds City Salah - @Victor77 - Vice City De Bruyne - non Vibe team Rumours of Mikey Johnston being on the shortlist have been officially denied. It is highly likely that DanEnglish FC will choose a new striker, to compliment their ageing world-class stars up front. While DanEnglish FC will gain, the other unfortunate team will likely lose their star striker + get nothing in return. Which would YOU pick?!

    Scratch Tries The Split 1KC

    Season 4 I'll try to keep this brief, but will have a tactics section at the bottom. Transfers We've reached the stage where the top players are willing to come and I can afford them, but my existing players are close enough to their level that there's not much point, so I just topped up on young players for the wonderkid factory. Results Won it all baby! Development He's looking pretty good now. The Crossing and Shooting go up to 20 and 15 when he's fully rested, but drop down again often. Seems he might have one more update to come too (slowly creeping up still). I've had some good Lainez's, but none as good as this. Contributions Progress Season Goals Assists 01 25 29 02 37 35 03 39 54 04 49 42 Totals 150 160 A good season, with more goals than before, mostly from playing around with tactics, discussed below. That said, I really want him to be topping 50 in both goals and assists every season, so there's work to be done yet. Tactics In order to get more goals, I switched up the tactics a bit, using this for the first half of the season: That definitely got him more goals, but the assists dropped off a fair bit, more than I was expecting. I could swap the tactics each season (ie have a goal scoring season, followed by an assists creating one), but I wanted more than that, so I tried going gung-ho for a few games: Worked okay. I really wanted to go to my TT Blaster to see how he did. I'm wishing he could play up front in the 3, as I can get goals and assists out of a central T. But anyway, he can't play up front (and refuses re-training) and I don't have the wingers at the club to play the TT Blaster, so I ended up moving to this after a few games: That gave him about equal goals and assists and I think will allow him to break the 50/50 barrier, but it is a bit flakey - as in he fairly constantly gets assists, but goal can be hot or cold (4 one game, then 2 games with 0). So that's what I'll try next season, but I may end up tweaking further. Thanks for reading.

    Season 10 Another season done. Transfers: Arsenal paid big for a regen who was very good but very moody. It was starting to annoy people so I cashed in. McKennie has been so useful but his time is up. Managed to get good money for him. Although Stengs is still quality I have a better player waiting to take his place. Frenkie de Jong has been sent out on loan. Teams were only offering 30/40m for him so I'm happy to loan him out to give younger players a chance. A few more youngsters added to the ranks. I also had to swap two fantastic players with Benfica because their attitudes were affecting the squad. Both incoming players are potentially just as good and have better attitudes so hopefully it works out. Competitions: Same old story. International: A season of qualifiers. Gravenberch scored 17 goals in 8 games. His record now stands at 224 goals in 109 caps, which is just silly. 🤣 Gravenberch: A three week injury this season. It happened quite late on so game time wasn't really affected. The injury is the reason for the three red arrows. I'm sure they will go the other way once he starts next season. Goals: 116 (club) + 17 (International) = 133 Overall: 1279 Massive season. I always like the club world cup seasons because there's a chance to get off to such a good start. Manager profile: Smashing through this. No new challenge demands either so hopefully he saw how crazy that was and wants to stay and beast it here for a while longer. Thanks for following. 👍

    Season 8 Hello and welcome back to this not so Devine career the last couple of years, surely things can’t go even more downhill can they? Well I’m here to prove you wrong 😂 Transfers So not many ins and outs this season. Oliver Skipp had been on loan for a couple of seasons with us and I fancied going one at the back this season so he was brought in at DM as was Etheridge who was also on loan with us last season, he was a very good player, so he would rotate with Skipp. I was gutted to see Dan James go but he wasn’t the same Dan James as I had used previously, wasn’t quite good enough anymore. Club Results So a great season by winning most things but the goals went down quite a bit even though I was now playing 1 CB, no idea how that works, but I have a plan for next season, let’s hope it works though! Manager Profile League Standards So up to 6th now after starting really low, I believe 10th? Does anyone know if this affects how Alfie has developed? As the league standard isn’t that high? Maybe @Scratch? Alfie And The Devine Lads So yeah, he’s not taking chances at all anymore, he gets an average of 8/9 shots a game and still can’t put them away anymore, it’s very weird and so frustrating, maybe the changes aren’t so clear anymore, I’ll keep going and trying though. Things aren’t always going to be awesome I guess. Doesn’t help that he’s literally a box to box midfielder to be honest, I don’t pick who to use very well 😂 Score Seriously can’t even get the table right either and I Cba to go back and change it 😂 We go again next season, hopefully things improve. Thank you for reading, your comments are always welcome and appreciated😁

    Season 9 Before I get ahead of myself and target 2k goals, I'll attack the 1.5k first, obviously. I'm back to work this week so trying to rattle a few seasons off. Managed another one. Transfers: Pembele, whilst turning out to be a very good defender wanted a new challenge. His wish was granted. Don't want anyone that doesn't want to be here. Mutombo was a good utility player. Covered a few positions when we had injuries. I have other players for that now. Meslier was just replaced with a Dutch wonderkid. Two players signed from Feyenoord. Future replacements for Wijndal and Ihattaren. Competitions: Clean sweep, again. The Eagle eyed amongst you will notice we lost a League game. More on that later. International: I find the Euro's tougher than World Cups. You play a top team in the group and every Knockout Round seems to be a top Nation. We triumphed still. Another International League win too. Gravenberch is now on 207 goals in 101 games for the Netherlands after netting 30 goals in his 14 Caps. Gravenberch: A three week injury this season. We were missing him when we lost in the League against Bordeaux. Goals: 103 (club) + 30 (International) = 133 Overall: 1146 The injury didn't stop the run of ton goal seasons, thankfully. Manager profile: Operation 1.5k (and 2k) off to a brilliant start. I have noticed an exclamation mark next to Gravenberch's name. He "wants a new challenge". I had a chat with him and he is now happy to stay. Phew! Does he not know there's a challenge here for him? Silly boy. I'll have to monitor that. Anyway, thanks for reading. 👍

    Season 20 I’m back with another update and this one won’t be so long as it turned out to be pretty similar to the previous season. We lost out to Celtic in the European Super Cup but won everything else. I was left in a similar position to last year going into the Champions League final with having to decide whether to play Hagi or not. The decision was made for me this time though as he picked up a small injury in the week building up to the game. This was the highlight game for Ianis. I’ve already posted it in the comments earlier but thought I’d put it in the update also as he may not hit anything like this again. Ianis ended up with 41 goals and 28 assists this year so even a slight improvement on his previous return so obviously I’m happy with that. Not really much more to add really, so I won’t. We’re closing in on the end of this now as early into the next season Hagi has decided he’d had enough and announced his retirement. I did ask him to reconsider but he’s adamant and I can’t say I blame him. Not sure if this means he’ll retire at the end of the current season or at the end of his deal which would mean another further season but regardless, we’ll be done shortly. Ironically at this exact stage he’s on exactly 750 assists which means we’ve hit the 1.5k split.

    Draft League

    DanEnglish FC Season Summary We were lucky to win the league, as any of half a dozen teams could have won it in the final month, with @Rich / Out on Bale leading the pack. Only 80 points. Won on goal difference. Lucky. The good news is that we had the 2nd best defence in the league (in terms of goals conceded), our top three strikers scored +70 goals between them, and we reached the ECL semi-finals of the ECL losing on sway goals. Not bad. Oh, and 'he' won Player of the Season. Rivals While many Vibe teams are excellent, we have only one true rivalry. @Kun Aguero / Kun’s Army must be our noisy neighbours on the blue side of Manchester. They knocked us out of the FA Cup, out of the Carabao Cup, and held us to draws in both league games. Frustrating. Plus they did a Tevez and have “stolen” (well... bought) one of our best Strikers. In + Out High transfer activity this year, as we seek to boost our squad depth. Attack - gained Lukaku, Zaha + backup player Bale. Lost Messi. Midfield - gained Wijnaldum + Bellingham (on loan). Lost Di Maria + Milner. Wing Backs - gained Trippier. Defence - gained Van Dijk + Koulibaly. Lost Ramos. Significant activity, but now have a 26 (edit: 27) man squad inc. Bellingham on loan, which should help us with the extra European games + no “healing” sponsorship. +30 Only Policy We are continuing with our unique “over 30’s only” policy, which had the original (& unhelpful) intention of getting max. value for money as players are only valued based on CA (not Potential nor Re-Sale value). The only exceptions are when we are not paying anything in cash ourselves: Frees - any transfers / loans without paying cash - e.g. Lukaku, e.g. Bellingham on loan. Trades without money - any transfers without paying cash - e.g. losing Messi, but gaining Zaha + $70m. It’s a problematic policy, but makes life more interesting + challenging for me. Next Season Last season, the pressure was on to win the league (to get our free player). This season the target is just “top 4” (also to get a free player). With Van Dijk, Lukaku + better squad depth, we have a good chance of doing this. BUT alongside the other Vibe teams - our biggest threat is injury + fitness problems - so I’m happy to lose all cup competitions ASAP to focus on the league. Let’s see what happens!

    Confirmed! We are delighted to have Wijnaldum at the club and thank @Rich for his quick decision making & good business sense (by replacing Wijnaldum with Tonali for only $10m more!) Confirmed! His new team are taking a risk on “bad boy” Zaha - who got 4 reds + 15 yellows last season, but think he can score goals as a backup poacher up front.

    Kun's Army Season Summary The 1st official season of Kun's Army had been quite a disappointing one after being top of the league in the first two months of the season. It's even more painful that we just failed to hit the season objective by only 1 point. The month where we concede 15+ goals was the turning point of the season IMO, we are the team with the best defensive before that, and suddenly one of the worst after that. It all happens after @DanEnglish praised Bonucci for his defensive performance, so the team captain may need some talking to before the 2nd season. There's a few stars that have some outstanding performance, but the best was definitely Dusan Tadic. I had expected him to be providing lots of assists, but 29 assists + 15 goals was way more than what I expect. Heung-Min Son was great as well, but he seems to be losing his form after an injury in January. Robert Lewandowski was good with his 29 goals, but tbh I'm expecting more from him. There's also a few disappointments/flops, including Wilfried Zaha. He had quite a nice start, but didn't really live to the expectations after that, while his discipline record was awful with 4 red cards and 15 yellow cards! Rumors are spreading around that the former Man Utd player might had already played his final game for the team. Another disappointment might be Allan Saint-Maximin, only 4 assists from the former Newcastle winger was definitely way below expectation. (He's available for a cash/swap deal if anyone's interested 👀)

    Loan agreed for the duration of season 2, with a release / recall clause (for any reason) available for @YungGaffer at both end-Dec and end-Jan in season 2. @YungGaffer / Yung Kings are delighted for this promising star to have greater game time, while DanEnglish FC are delighted to have the extra squad depth given they play with a 3 man central midfield. With both the player + DanEnglish FC having agreed to the loan, all that is needed is for @YungGaffer’s final confirmation.

    4-3-2-1 (Try if you want)

    HI All I am a veteran when it comes to this game, in regards to age and not how good I am 🤣 I don't really post much these days, I leave it to you young guys who have the time to understand all the ins and outs of the game these days, but I thought this would interest just a few maybe. I apologies now if it looks like anybody else's, but believe me I just created and then used to the point it worked. I have tried with 4 different teams: Everton - Wanted to see if I could maintain a good start using it, so start with a good team, but not really getting much done in the first season as it's dominated by the big 4 (probably more if you ask other opinions), who are quite hard to knock off their perch in the first season in Season 2020/2021. I completely changed the team as much as I could buying or swapping players I thought would suit the roles, and then getting freebies to bolster from Injuries or fatigue Jiangsu - Why, well because I could and I didn't know who was good and who was bad in the Chinese league, but boy do some give you lot's of money to play with. Again I tried not to waste the chunk on one player, as this would not really add benefit to what I was trying to achieve, so again tried to get players as cheap as, or free that could easily fit the bill, including 40 year old Gomes (GK), I don't know how I ended up buying a young midfielder (Matheus Henrique) for over £9Million? Barcelona - This was obviously going to be quite easy, especially as Messi and co was still there, but again I wanted to change the whole team (well as much as I needed) to trial the tactic with new blood, so the likes of Pogba, Grealish, Marquinhos and Hulk was brought in, by my main aim was to see if I could get a striker I am not used to, scoring for fun, so I bought Umar Sadiq as his stats looked good for a relatively young guy. Last but not least, my own Team - Oldham - I always want success with this team, and the Tactic could of gone either way, but a complete overhaul of the team, not a penny spent, I did ok with them, bringing in plenty of players who fit the roles for that division, and some were simply brilliant for what wages I could offer. SO my aim was to work on players that had Speed, Stamina, and as much I could afford with some of the players in Passing, the rest of the stats were depending on position obviously, Striker I play is a Deep Lying Forward (DLF) so what stats are needed for him, well I didn't really know, I simply worked with the teams I took over, adjusting Roles until they worked, giving myself between 10 and 20 games before starting again if it simply didn't work. So again, I have not copied, looked at others, most look the same these days, you can't really not copy so relevance of a formation, but this is solely the decision of my own on Tactics, Formation, and roles, hopefully there will be some will simply say it is good and use it, others will say they have switched this and that, good luck, and others will say it simply doesn't work, well either way good luck to you all if you want to give it a go, or stick with what you know if not... Tactic: Simple enough back 4 with 2 CD (I don't like BPD as I find we concede a lot more) and 2 WB, then 2 AM with a CM in the middle, and then 2 Wingers with pace and crossing, finished with a DLF to score the goals, nothing too complicated. I went for an attacking Mentality, keeping the Width and Tempo as Balanced and Normal, but keeping the Creativeness as Expressive to try and move the ball better As for Defence, keep the Line high to try and stop the play in our half, Close everyone All over, keep the yellow and red cards down with Normal tackling, and I found if I use CD, the Offside trap wasn't really my cup of tea, so I switched it off (the might be a mistake, happy for comments). Lastly Attacking, as I have WB I use the Look for Overlap to keep the attack strong, Work it into the Box as Run at Defence is on so hopefully more in the box to help set up the Striker. I play a more Direct game, as I see more benefit than watching the ball bounce back on forth to the defenders. With some teams, keeping the Mixed on Passing, I find I get more variation, again Short and Centre might benefit the Striker, but not this Tactic. GK keeps it Short, Simple TEAMS - EVERTON Came 3rd in my only Season behind Liverpool and Man City (of course it is 2020/21 as I said) JIANGSU - Won the Chinese Super League (I know it's not hard) but as I said tried to not spend to much, again getting most of the Freebies and end of Contract players Barcelona - Swapped many players saving lots of money in Transfers, my aim was to see if I could get a relatively unknown Striker (to me anyway) to make it in a team of Super players, and this was obviously Sadiq who eventually went on to score 31 goals in his first season, which is ok (ish) Lastly Oldham - The one surprise was the Striker in the DLF role, he scored an amazing 43 goals in 43 games which is unheard for with Oldham (I wish), again I didn't spend a penny, selling everyone as much I could to raise the wage structure. Everton was not really a big scoring team, plus I get rid of Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Richarlison, I brought Kean back from Loan and then eventually bought Isak, they did ok, but didn't really get much out of them in the first season, maybe another season might show their full potential. Any comments as always are welcome, or questions.

    A Devine Career (Strikerless, Season 8)

    Wow, not sure how I missed so much of this career, I've been a bit scarce around here lately, but still... Anyway, all caught up now. His heights were massive, his lows were ... not so good. As far as sweepstakes go, mathematically we can predict his score next season will be in the 40s... Not 100% sure what's up with his development, but my money would be that he maxed out a couple of years ago, but that the game doesn't want to actually tell you that (I wrote about that in my cheat save career). Is he getting any increase after games at all? Or is it 0 every time? As far as the league reputation goes, if it's too low it can stop his development in league games (he'll still improve after UCL games), but there will be a message on his Training screen that he needs to play at a higher level to improve. If it's not too low to actually stop his development, it can still slow it down. If his CA is already pretty high and the league standard is low, then he might be only getting 1% or 2% after games, but if he was in a better league that might be higher. Anyway, wait until he has a 9 or 10 rated game in the UCL and check the post match screen to see how much he improves. If it is 0, then he's done and fully developed. If it's a small number, then he probably has a high CA already, but has a little more improvement, but it will come slowly - and if there are too many injuries, he might not ever make it to the next step (even if he doesn't go backwards attributes wise, it wipes out some of his progress). Leaving all that aside, he should be good enough to be scoring a lot more than last season! So it's back to tweaking the tactic and maybe his teammates (maybe they are too good now and don't share with him enough?). Or I guess maybe he's not happy or something? That might explain why his attributes dropped without injury that time and could also explain why his numbers dropped off. Not much you can do except offer him a new contract... Anyway, hope you get him back in line.

    An idea 💡 Once the season has (dramatically!) ended, perhaps each Vibe player can share your thoughts (e.g. interview style)? Feel free to share whatever you want - if you’d like some guidance, the journalists’ questions could be: Thoughts about the 1st season. Feelings about other teams / rivals. Your team’s stars + flops. Your team’s plans for next season / areas to strengthen. Would be interesting to read

    It's sports entertainment, pal. The crowd reactions over the years have been epic. I've wanted to be at a few WWE events too. The place was ROCKING! Even in defeat, we didn't stop singing. We were kept in after full time for half an hour & didn't stop. Just before they allowed us out, Roy Evans, Robbie Fowler and a few others came back out to applaud us. It was just brilliant. I've been lucky to experience some great moments in my life and this is right up there with the best.

    I quite like that Elliott kid. He's got so much potential. As long as the media don't over-hype him he'll be a big player in the future. I hope he makes a full recovery and sets the league alight for years to come. I have also gained massive respect for him coming out and admitting that it wasn't a nasty challenge but rather a freak accident. He could of easily jumped on the bandwagon and slated the challenge but it shows real signs of maturity to tell the truth. IMO it was never a red card. The card was given for the severity of the injury & not the actual challenge, which is ridiculous. I'm delighted that referees aren't penalising every challenge. I think this has been misinterpreted as they're going to let hard tackles go. It seems to be more shoulder to shoulders and players just falling over when breathed on that they're allowing play to carry on (apart from Grealish. Brilliant player but the amount of times he falls over a blade of grass & gets a free kick is absurd) which I'm all for. I like the current rules. Anything wreckless or if you're not in control when attempting a tackle should be dealt with to the letter of the laws but not every hard tackle should be penalised. That's what got me into football. I loved the R9's, Peter Beardsley's an so on but I really enjoyed David Batty and even Roy Keane controlling games with their physicality. Those sorts of players don't exist anymore because players are over-protected. I don't want to see injury after injury because of stupid tackles in games but without any physicality, which is the way things are going, football will be boring. For me anyway. There will always be players that step over the line and they should be punished but punishing players for making hard but fair tackles will force it out of the game altogether.

    Season 8 Transfers: No players in. Nothing tickled my fancy. No youngsters and certainly nothing that would improve my first team. Devyne Rensch, whilst still being relatively young had improved as much as he could but he has fallen behind one of the youngsters I signed to replace him already. Was time to cash in. Competitions: No problems here. International: In between major tournaments so nothing to report. Gravenberch scored 23 goals in 10 Internationals. His record now is 177 goals in 87 caps. Gravenberch: Things were going well until April where he picked up a 3 week injury. luckily it was around an International break so he missed fewer League games than he might have. Goals: 109 (club) + 23 (International) = 132 Overall: 1013 A slight drop off in goals but it's still an amazing return. Plus, we complete the Strikerless 1kc in just 8 seasons. Manager profile: The 1kc is done. Maybe it's time to start another career and see what other challenges are out there? Nah! I'm still having fun here so I think I will carry on until it stops being fun or Gravenberch retires. 😊 Thanks for reading. 👍
