  1. Apologies, I’ll just go away now and let you get on with things.
  2. It’d be a bad job if you weren’t. Just brilliant.
  3. Yeah, very frustrating but hopefully he can get back up to the heights of his earlier days. He isn’t terrific really looking at him and you’d almost call him a brilliant squad player for a top top team. It’s all of those blues though I guess and if some of those 13 and 14’s were to turn to green then he’d look a lot better.
  4. Thank you Dai, I enjoyed playing it too. Thanks Rich, I’ve enjoyed it. The moving club thing is nothing earth shattering here really as we kind of just moved in a somewhat expected way but it is a new thing for me and it did make a change. Thank you Stuart, I’m going to try and do a bit of a summary as a post over the weekend and then another one for the tactic as I’ve had a few requests. I don’t personally think the tactic is that great so I’ve no problem posting it. Cheers Mr Sandwich, thank you, I’ll take that as a compliment. Thanks Aortic, I’ve had my eye on him for a save for a while and this was the one that came to me in the end. It’s turned out to be pretty good, so I’ve got no complaints and it’ll be interesting to see what king of career Ianis has in real life.

    I don’t particularly mind the physical side of the game but there are limits and I want the bad fouls punished. I can’t say I’ve got any real problem with teams trying to use physicality to try and gain an advantage. Again, I want the bad fouls punished but I’d also expect my team to be prepared for that kind of battle. I mean, every game is different and I kind of like that.
  6. 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.
  7. Thank you Dai, I’m happy enough with it. Thanks Rich, we’ve reached the end and I’ll be uploading it soon. It’s been a nice save this. Cheers Scratch, yeah I’m pretty sure he was about late 30’s when he was still playing for Romania and I’m fairly certain he played internationally more or less right up until he retired. I think it could be really good with the two legged cup rounds being great opportunities to get some big wins in. I’m convinced that the league was just 18 teams previously but now it’s 20 and I think that may just be because of Covid. Not sure if they’re going to eventually drop it back to 18 again but they haven’t for the new season irl. They’re still going with the five sub rule this year too so no idea what is going on, maybe they’re going to keep the five subs until they get the league back down to 18 teams. Guess we’ll see but I may have been a bit harsh on SI to just call the subs thing a bug. If it does become permanent and the league stays at 20 teams then it’ll be a great league for goalscoring challenges going forward. I think the moving around thing helped me here and once I got to Galatasaray for the finale it was easy enough to play out. I suppose it helps if the player is still doing somewhat ok and he was here.
  8. 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. Score 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 Galatasaray Total: 110 goals and 80 assists in 144 games Grand Total: 788 goals and 738 assists in 975 games Thank you.
  9. Thank you, it is a very good league and the cup competition is nice as you get two legged rounds all the way to the final. You often get a really poor team in the first couple of rounds and playing them twice gives you more chance of at least getting a big return in one of the games. There’s a bit of a bug in this league this year too as the five substitute rule stays throughout. It really helps with keeping everyone really fresh and I suppose it’s a bit controversial here with it being a challenge but I’m not too fussed as I’m not really concerned about leaderboards atm. Plus it’s not my fault anyway. Thanks Broodje, he’s certainly doing better than I was expecting.

    Susan believe that if he’s dislocated it and they’ve managed to get it back in without any ligament damage then he should be able to make a full recovery.

    I was listening on the radio so haven’t seen it but they did say that Salah went over and had to cover his eyes. I know nothing about dislocated ankles but I know with shoulders it can mean you’re never 100% again and at a very high risk of suffering further dislocations. Obviously the ankle has to take weight much more often than the shoulder but on the other hand that could lead to it getting a better blood supply so just have to hope he can recover ok. He is really young too which must surely give him a good chance.
  12. A frustrating season with those injuries. I hate those seasons where the player gets multiple injuries the most, would much prefer him to just get one really long injury and be done with it. Still a very nice season though and he’s certainly well on course.
  13. Thanks Rich, hopefully he can keep things like this for a few more seasons. If he’s around the 20 mark for both then there’s enough there to kind of make it worthwhile. Thank you Dai, the European success surprised me too especially after we lost the first match against Inter. We went two down early on against PSG in the first leg of the semi and I thought that that would be that but no we managed to come back. I mentioned earlier liking the league here and the cup schedule in particular and here’s a prime example. Their team was largely filled with greyed out players and this was one of their defenders to give you an idea of the sort of quality we’re looking at.
