  1. What a day today has been in the store! @BatiGoal arrived earlier with a nice second hand record only for @Foxy to follow shortly after with a brand spanking shiny new one!
  2. We had a great run of results in the last update to put us in with a great shout of survival but plenty of work was still required to see us home so let’s see how the next few games went. 25 Apr 20: Liverpool v Norwich City: Premier League, Anfield (att: 53,836) This Norwich City side just love a trip to Merseyside and they continued that trend with a fantastic victory over Liverpool at Anfield. Teemu Pukki opened the scoring for the canaries after finishing a fantastic counter attacking move against the run of play towards the end of the first half and Onel Hernández doubled their advantage not long after the break when his deflected effort found its way past a bewildered Alisson in the Liverpool goal. The reds only had themselves to blame for this result as they spurned a number of great opportunities with Salah in particular having a truly horrible day in front of goal but Norwich City won’t care as they go home with another fantastic three points. Result: 0-2 29 Apr 20: Watford v Norwich City: Premier League, Vicarage Road (att: 21,192) The canaries have been on a great run and have been very clinical in front of goal recently but not today as they left their shooting boots at home and could hardly keep the ball in the stadium with shooting efforts flying left, right and centre. This was a game with two near post corner goals and one for each team with Troy Deeney scoring for Watford and Josip Drmic for Norwich and I suppose in the end both teams were probably happy enough with the draw. Result: 1-1 03 May 20: Norwich City v Brighton: Premier League, Carrow Road (att: 27,329) Two teams battling for relegation here and after a limp start from the hosts Adam Webster opened the scoring for the visiting seagulls with a scrappy goal from a corner in the 20th minute. Norwich then huffed and puffed but just couldn’t create any real chances so it was the Brighton contingent who would travel home in great spirits after sealing a much needed three points for them. Result: 0-1 05 May 20: Manchester United v Norwich City: Premier League, Old Trafford (att: 75,607) Norwich City started very well and got their reward as Teemu Pukki prodded home from six yards out after David De Gea made a hash of clearing a speculative shot from distance by Emi Buendia. Paul Pogba restored parity with a low drive from the edge of the Norwich box midway through the first half before Sam Byram went in hard on United's Jesse Lingard to receive his marching orders from referee Peter Banks much to the disgust of Norwich manager Ian Dawson. After managing to hold on for much of the second half the canaries ended up with nothing as Odion Ighalo scored with a lucky deflected goal with just minutes remaining to give the home side all three points. Result: 2-1 So after a fantastic result against Liverpool we proceeded to undo all of our good work with a few horrible results to put us right back in the mire. Survival is no longer in our hands although based on the remaining fixtures of the relegation threatened sides you’d think a couple of wins would be enough but that’s easier said than done at this stage. Both Brighton and Crystal Palace are more than likely going to be okay and the Bournemouth against Southampton tie could prove to be crucial in this battle. Forthcoming fixtures in the relegation battle Saturday 9th May 2020 Brighton v Burnley Newcastle United v Norwich City Sunday 10th May 2020 Arsenal v Watford Aston Villa v Manchester United Bournemouth v Southampton Monday 11th May 2020 Crystal Palace v Everton Friday 15th May 2020 Manchester United v Southampton Sunday 17th May 2020 Chelsea v Bournemouth Manchester City v Crystal Palace Manchester United v Newcastle United Norwich v Aston Villa Southampton v Brighton Watford v Liverpool Thanks for reading.
  3. Yeah I’d say he’d be better at AMC and that’s a good idea about the AP on the ring role as I’ve never tried that role this year yet. May have to give it a try on a test save as I find that if my lone striker is less than great then I get more joy with inside forwards up with him rather than wingers as I think they offer more support. This is more for strikers scoring mind but in theory the AP’s our wide might offer the striker more support in the centre without pinching as many goals as the IF’s. I remember trying it last year and not getting much joy but worth a try again i think.
  4. Nice start and it’s great that you’re getting the facilities up. Marcus Forss looks very nice indeed!
  5. Nice start, I agree with the others and personally find that strikers in particular are just not right until they get to around 22-25. Regardless of stamina they seem to get jaded very quickly and suffer from inconsistency, well in my experience anyway but it’s probably a lot less noticeable in a weaker league. Anyway, great start and the only way is up.
  6. Some quality domination going on here Billy. Brilliant stuff. We’ll have to add your goal difference to the record store!
  7. Need to fight back on these predictions now. Arsenal 2 - 2 Spurs Inter Milan 1 - 1 Borussia Dortmund Napoli 2 - 3 Liverpool Barcelona 2 - 0 Atletico Madrid Porto 2 - 2 Manchester United Newcastle 0 - 2 Torino
  8. I’ll have to try that intimidation tactic in the future 😂 Good luck for all of the targets.
  9. The aggression numbers throughout that team is pure gold to me. Brilliant stuff.
  10. Nice return from Mr Red. How are you finding young Hagi? He seems to be doing ok based on those awards.
  11. He’s played a fair bit at either the AP or the two IF positions. He just hasn’t quite got the pace I like for the IF role in this system but he gets some minutes and to be honest I’m having trouble working out who my preferred player is for the AP position as they have a few decent options there. Just wish they had a more tank like BBM!
  12. Good luck but not too much based on your club of choice 😂 Enjoy!
  13. I usually just go with leadership but do very rarely look at teamwork also. I often look at leadership and try to get a high average number throughout the side as I’m convinced it helps with in-game management with much less late ai comebacks. I think like that with a few other attributes too like aggression, teamwork and even creativity as i often think the game is just looking for the overall team number for a lot of attributes rather than per position. Might be totally off on it but that’s how I play and it makes sense in some ways as it doesn’t always matter where the creativity is in your team as long as it’s there. Same goes for aggression which we tend to think of as tough tackling defenders and midfielders but I like it for wingers and attackers if I can get it so they are keen to go in for 50-50’s with those horrible defenders. Again probably all bollocks but that’s the beauty of this game that we can all have ideas and play the way we want.
  14. He’s doing brilliantly and looks like he’s going to reach the target easily enough. I had Mac Allister on loan in my Greek career and he never got much of a chance as I had a more experienced guy ahead of him so I’m determined to try him again at some point as he looks great.
