    Ian got a reaction from Titjes in The Journey of Ianis Hagi - Season 22   
    Season 14
    There was a bit of a drop off this year for Ianis but he still hit over 30 of each and the team was still largely dominant. I couldn’t really ask for much more at this stage in truth He was willing to discuss terms of a new deal and it was tempting to just go ahead and tie him down but it was almost a certainty that he’d then announce his proposed retirement at the end of that deal which would scupper any chance we had of going to Galatasaray. Of course, he may then have reconsidered his proposed retirement if asked but he’s already done that once so it’d certainly not be a given. Anyway, I decided to just hold off for now.

     
    Season 15
    A very similar season to the last here for Hagi with both 31 goals and assists in 47 games. He’s very noticeably declining but he’s not a hindrance in terms of team results even though admittedly our goal output has taken a bit of a hit. His deal was up literally at the season cut off point and this was when I left the save for awhile as I debated what to do.

     
    This is how things looked at the job centre and there was just nothing there. Those two poor teams from Turkey only just appeared in the last week or so and they are poor as I say. It hardly matters anyway as I felt if I wanted to continue I had no choice but to sign him up for longer at Inter. Not ideal but I knew if I didn’t someone else could at any time or he’d maybe just retire. So it was either continue on at Inter or call it a day.

     
    Season 16
    After leaving the save for a week or two I decided to come back and try to continue on as I felt there was still a bit left in it.
    I signed Hagi up for a further five years which as I expected prompted him to announce his proposed retirement at the end of the deal. I asked him to reconsider and he agreed, so we still have at least a chance of one more move should the Galatasaray job ever come up.


     
    Hagi had a decent season with 37 goals and 24 assists but the same can’t be said about the team as things were largely mixed there. We had a few cup disappointments including dropping out of the Italian Cup in the first round and it was only the league and Super Cup that we ended up winning but I don’t really put the inconsistency down to Ianis as there’s a few areas of the squad that I wasn’t happy with.


     
    Season 17
    No sign of the Galatasaray job so we played out another season at Inter and it was very much better as the team got back to their dominant ways. Hagi also produced a nice return with 32 goals and 30 assists but he is starting to look a bit rough and it’s safe to say he’s beyond the point of no return.

     
    We still wait patiently for the Galatasaray job and it’s starting to look like it’ll never come. They only managed to finish fourth this season and failed to win a cup but looks like the board are happy enough with that.

     
    Season 18
    We went into the next season, played out the Club World Championship, prepared the Inter squad for the season ahead and then it finally came.

     
    I applied, got the job and Hagi came with me. The season is just about to start so we’re pushed for time when it comes to building the squad but the transfer window is still open for a few weeks so we should be able to get some deals done.


     
    Here’s the final Inter screenshots purely for confirmation purposes.
     
    We’re now live so I’ll play out season 18 at Galatasaray and then return with the update.

    Season 18 - Galatasaray
    As soon as I took over I had a quick look at the squad and it was largely mixed as although there were plenty of decent players, there was also plenty of deadwood that I’d ideally prefer to offload. We were very much pushed for time with the season literally about to start so it was a bit of a challenge in trying to put together a decent team for the season.


     
    Here are the transfers which aren’t very interesting as we’re well into regen territory but I thought I’d at least show them with it being the first season here. Some were made before I arrived but we did manage to bring in a few players and I was happy after the window ended as I felt we’d very much managed to improve the squad. Some of the better players already here were kind of getting on a bit and I even bought a few older players as I felt we needed to play a bit for now to try and hit the ground running, so we’ll have a bit of work on our hands over the next few years as we try to gradually rebuild.
     
    We were in the third tier European competition and the qualification rounds for that started straight away with us playing a very poor team. We were still rebuilding as we arrived at the first league fixture and it was intriguing as you just want to get an idea of where you’re at. It wasn’t great as we drew 0-0. The thing where the scores are off and the display is wrong on some games has happened this season which I’ve put down to too much happening. We started at Inter in the CWC and ended up in a different league and it looks like it’s too much for the game to handle and things have gone off. Anyway, in this game the stats have been flipped as it was surely us with 20 odd shots and hardly any on target.

     
    Things improved and we were going well in all competitions until we hit a bit of a poor spell around February time, culminating with us going out of the cup and also denting our title chances as we were neck and neck with Besiktas at this stage.

     
    We weathered it and went on a great run and basically overpowered them to claim the title which we were very happy with.

     
    Europe went well too as we didn’t play any good teams until the final to be honest. The semi was against Fenerbache who only ended up finishing fifth in our league which kind of tells the story. Unfortunately Spurs were too much for us in the final and these stats aren’t from the same game I don’t think as it was a pretty even game if I remember correctly. Anyway, it was slightly annoying to lose here as it would’ve been nice to have won this competition as we may never get the chance to play in it again.

     
    I’ve put this game down as the highlight, purely because Hagi showed he’s still somewhat got it and it was near the end of the season too which gives us confidence going forward.



     
    Ianis ended up with 36 goals and 26 assists in all competitions which I was very happy with. He was doing well in Europe right from the off but it took awhile for him to get going in the league. It was a bit concerning at the time but he ended up doing well so it’ll be interesting to see how he gets on next season as we should be in a higher quality European comp.

    I’ve mentioned this before but thought I would do again just in case by some miracle a member of the SI team visits the site and sees it.
    More tactic slots are required due to us now having set piece instructions. I can’t believe they weren’t added this year to be honest, unless there’s some reason they can’t be.
    I suppose on Android it isn’t much of a chore to move tactics over to a different folder on the device and then move them back and forth between there and the game whenever requires but that isn’t so easy on iOS.
    It’s needed so we can save quite a bit of time when it comes to setting up set pieces as it’s a pain to have to keep doing it over and over for different formations. It would also somewhat get around the fact that we can’t change them in-game. You could be trying to see a game out and want more players to stay back or pushing for a goal and want more to stay forward as an example. You could set the different versions up in advance and have them saved in different tactic slots to change to quickly at will.
    Not a massive thing for many I’m sure but for me it’s essential.

    It’s still a great return especially given that he’s still young. The stat dropping thing is annoying and gets to me too.

    This is how things looked at the job centre and there was just nothing there. Those two poor teams from Turkey only just appeared in the last week or so and they are poor as I say. It hardly matters anyway as I felt if I wanted to continue I had no choice but to sign him up for longer at Inter. Not ideal but I knew if I didn’t someone else could at any time or he’d maybe just retire. So it was either continue on at Inter or call it a day.

     
    Season 16
    After leaving the save for a week or two I decided to come back and try to continue on as I felt there was still a bit left in it.
    I signed Hagi up for a further five years which as I expected prompted him to announce his proposed retirement at the end of the deal. I asked him to reconsider and he agreed, so we still have at least a chance of one more move should the Galatasaray job ever come up.


     
    Hagi had a decent season with 37 goals and 24 assists but the same can’t be said about the team as things were largely mixed there. We had a few cup disappointments including dropping out of the Italian Cup in the first round and it was only the league and Super Cup that we ended up winning but I don’t really put the inconsistency down to Ianis as there’s a few areas of the squad that I wasn’t happy with.


     
    Season 17
    No sign of the Galatasaray job so we played out another season at Inter and it was very much better as the team got back to their dominant ways. Hagi also produced a nice return with 32 goals and 30 assists but he is starting to look a bit rough and it’s safe to say he’s beyond the point of no return.

     
    We still wait patiently for the Galatasaray job and it’s starting to look like it’ll never come. They only managed to finish fourth this season and failed to win a cup but looks like the board are happy enough with that.

     
    Season 18
    We went into the next season, played out the Club World Championship, prepared the Inter squad for the season ahead and then it finally came.

     
    I applied, got the job and Hagi came with me. The season is just about to start so we’re pushed for time when it comes to building the squad but the transfer window is still open for a few weeks so we should be able to get some deals done.


     
    Here’s the final Inter screenshots purely for confirmation purposes.
     
    We’re now live so I’ll play out season 18 at Galatasaray and then return with the update.

    Ian got a reaction from Titjes in The Journey of Ianis Hagi - Season 22   
    Season 14
    There was a bit of a drop off this year for Ianis but he still hit over 30 of each and the team was still largely dominant. I couldn’t really ask for much more at this stage in truth He was willing to discuss terms of a new deal and it was tempting to just go ahead and tie him down but it was almost a certainty that he’d then announce his proposed retirement at the end of that deal which would scupper any chance we had of going to Galatasaray. Of course, he may then have reconsidered his proposed retirement if asked but he’s already done that once so it’d certainly not be a given. Anyway, I decided to just hold off for now.

     
    Season 15
    A very similar season to the last here for Hagi with both 31 goals and assists in 47 games. He’s very noticeably declining but he’s not a hindrance in terms of team results even though admittedly our goal output has taken a bit of a hit. His deal was up literally at the season cut off point and this was when I left the save for awhile as I debated what to do.

    He got his five goals early on and ended up with 50 goals and 26 assists. Now it’s probably just a matter of finishing things up I feel. I’ve been into his contract negotiation page and he won’t even enter talks which is no problem as playing out the final two years left on his deal seems like a decent way to end thing. Barca or Real were probably the only options we had in terms of potentially moving over the last few years but neither of those would even tempt me now. Going back to Villarreal or Rangers would get me thinking but if he won’t even enter contract discussions here then I’m not all confident he would do for any other club. Galatasaray is the dream move I guess so I’ll have to keep an eye on that but I do quite like the idea of just playing out the final two seasons here and calling it a day as it’d be a clean way to finish.

    I like the choices. I’ve used both of the strikers a few times but not so much Asensio as he’s usually been one I would to cash in on one way or another if I’d go Real.

    Good evening,
    I’ve fallen behind on this, well in terms of posting anyway as it’s not like I haven’t played on any more. In fact, I think I may be finished the save one way or another so I’m here to somewhat catch up. I failed to make any notes as I was playing along which has meant things are a little vague, so based on that and how things panned out I feel it’d be best that I save a bit on screenshots and do a multi season update with a brief summary of each season.

    Season 9
    I mentioned on the last update that Hagi would be going into the last year of his deal this season and the plan was to try and renew it as soon as we moved over as we’d have a full transfer budget to help with things. I did that and managed to get him signed up on a three year deal, I chose the three years rather than five just in case of good opportunity to move would come along at some point. The team had a dominant season and Hagi produced a steady return of 42 goals and 47 assists. You may notice Haaland here too who was our main transfer as he came in to replace the outgoing Martinez. A massive offer came in for Martinez and I felt I couldn’t turn it down as he was getting on a bit. Haaland was a couple of years younger at this stage and very similar in quality so it was a nice deal. 

     
    Season 10
    A similar return again for Ianis this year albeit with a different makeup as his assisting was better. Another strong season for the team but I wouldn’t say this tactic is particularly great as there’s always a few poor results thrown in but just glad that we are at least more or less winning everything. Haaland had a very nice season with 82 goals and at one point I thought he may well hit the ton as there just seemed no stopping him.  My corner routine is somewhat normal with one of our three biggest threats attacking the near post, another one attacking the far post, the other marking the keeper and Hagi just choosing himself where to send the corner. I have another player lurking outside the box, another attacking the ball from outside the area, two staying back and the rest just going forward. It works pretty well and it’s usually the guy marking the keeper that gets the majority of the goals and that was largely Haaland this year. My old routine was somewhat similar in that the target guy was marking the keeper and the delivery was set to be directed to the penalty spot but in that one I tried to keep everyone else away. I just thought to switch to this as it doesn’t matter who scores the goals so long as Hagi is getting the assist and he is a good taker so felt we could go with a more balanced routine with threats everywhere. He was 31 at this point and still looked good.
    It was a more or less a full season for Hagi looking at the numbers but he did suffer a month long injury. It came in mid March and the layoff would include the international break, so probably the perfect injury to be honest as he would get a rest before the busy run in and wouldn’t get overplayed by his country.

     
    Season 11
    Another similar season again both in terms of player and club. This was partly the reason I decided to do a multi season update as it’s all very similar, if I wasn’t so far ahead then things would be different but I am so here we are. I signed him up for another five years as there weren’t any good options there for us to move. 

     
    Season 12
    There was a very good chance that Ianis could hit our target of both 500 goals and assists this season but unfortunately he couldn’t quite manage it. He got the assists but ended up five short on the goals so we’ll need to wait a bit longer before we can celebrate, although it would be a complete and utter disaster if he failed from here. He suffered a couple of month long injuries this season and the second of which meant he missed almost all of the run in as he only just came back in time to play the CL final in which he’d need to score six goals to hit our target. It was pretty much impossible and that proved to be the case but he did score one goal and the last gasp winner to boot to show that he can still do it at the highest level.


    Summary
    Four steady seasons which leaves us within a whisker of completing our challenge. You always want more and I did here from season to season as it would’ve been nice to break the ton barrier in combined goals and assists over a season but we just couldn’t quite manage it. I was left in a position where I just couldn’t see any sense in making changes as both his goals and assists were always good. I mean, I could easily have made changes and messed things up completely or even if the changes worked I could’ve ended up going too far one way.
    Anyway, we go on and hopefully we’ll hit the goal target next year.

It was pretty much impossible and that proved to be the case but he did score one goal and the last gasp winner to boot to show that he can still do it at the highest level.


    Summary
    Four steady seasons which leaves us within a whisker of completing our challenge. You always want more and I did here from season to season as it would’ve been nice to break the ton barrier in combined goals and assists over a season but we just couldn’t quite manage it. I was left in a position where I just couldn’t see any sense in making changes as both his goals and assists were always good. I mean, I could easily have made changes and messed things up completely or even if the changes worked I could’ve ended up going too far one way.
    Anyway, we go on and hopefully we’ll hit the goal target next year.

    Ian got a reaction from Titjes in The Journey of Ianis Hagi - Season 22   
    Good evening,
    I’ve fallen behind on this, well in terms of posting anyway as it’s not like I haven’t played on any more. In fact, I think I may be finished the save one way or another so I’m here to somewhat catch up. I failed to make any notes as I was playing along which has meant things are a little vague, so based on that and how things panned out I feel it’d be best that I save a bit on screenshots and do a multi season update with a brief summary of each season.

    Season 9
    I mentioned on the last update that Hagi would be going into the last year of his deal this season and the plan was to try and renew it as soon as we moved over as we’d have a full transfer budget to help with things. I did that and managed to get him signed up on a three year deal, I chose the three years rather than five just in case of good opportunity to move would come along at some point. The team had a dominant season and Hagi produced a steady return of 42 goals and 47 assists. You may notice Haaland here too who was our main transfer as he came in to replace the outgoing Martinez. A massive offer came in for Martinez and I felt I couldn’t turn it down as he was getting on a bit. Haaland was a couple of years younger at this stage and very similar in quality so it was a nice deal. 

     
    Season 10
    A similar return again for Ianis this year albeit with a different makeup as his assisting was better. Another strong season for the team but I wouldn’t say this tactic is particularly great as there’s always a few poor results thrown in but just glad that we are at least more or less winning everything. Haaland had a very nice season with 82 goals and at one point I thought he may well hit the ton as there just seemed no stopping him.  My corner routine is somewhat normal with one of our three biggest threats attacking the near post, another one attacking the far post, the other marking the keeper and Hagi just choosing himself where to send the corner. I have another player lurking outside the box, another attacking the ball from outside the area, two staying back and the rest just going forward. It works pretty well and it’s usually the guy marking the keeper that gets the majority of the goals and that was largely Haaland this year. My old routine was somewhat similar in that the target guy was marking the keeper and the delivery was set to be directed to the penalty spot but in that one I tried to keep everyone else away. I just thought to switch to this as it doesn’t matter who scores the goals so long as Hagi is getting the assist and he is a good taker so felt we could go with a more balanced routine with threats everywhere. He was 31 at this point and still looked good.
    It was a more or less a full season for Hagi looking at the numbers but he did suffer a month long injury. It came in mid March and the layoff would include the international break, so probably the perfect injury to be honest as he would get a rest before the busy run in and wouldn’t get overplayed by his country.

     
    Season 11
    Another similar season again both in terms of player and club. This was partly the reason I decided to do a multi season update as it’s all very similar, if I wasn’t so far ahead then things would be different but I am so here we are. I signed him up for another five years as there weren’t any good options there for us to move. 

     
    Season 12
    There was a very good chance that Ianis could hit our target of both 500 goals and assists this season but unfortunately he couldn’t quite manage it. He got the assists but ended up five short on the goals so we’ll need to wait a bit longer before we can celebrate, although it would be a complete and utter disaster if he failed from here. He suffered a couple of month long injuries this season and the second of which meant he missed almost all of the run in as he only just came back in time to play the CL final in which he’d need to score six goals to hit our target. It was pretty much impossible and that proved to be the case but he did score one goal and the last gasp winner to boot to show that he can still do it at the highest level.

    Messi to PSG is pretty uninspiring and a nothing for me as far as the game is concerned.
    If that is the case, he may as well just go back to Argentina and finish things up there unless of course either he or his agents need or want the money.

    I’m using Musah in my Hagi save and I was certain I’d seen him used on here somewhere but couldn’t think where. Now I know as I think it was here.

    Season 8
    I felt last season was a success as Hagi went more or less injury free and produced a decent return and the team finally won the European Cup which was a relief as it was beginning to look like we’d never win it. Going into this season Hagi had just two years left on his deal and at 28 years old it felt like a pivotal time as if he’s going to have one more big move then you’d feel it’s going to have to be pretty much now. The plan was to play through this season while keeping an eye on the job market and take it from there. We’re probably only looking at Barca, Real and perhaps Atletico as the only viable options as I can’t say I fancy another team in Italy and it’s far too early for Galatasaray. If nothing were to come up then we’d just try and extend his deal here.
    We had a very efficient transfer window with a few older players leaving and being replaced with younger versions. Pedri replaced Olmo as one of our two advanced playmakers, Wijndal came in for Gayà for the left, Hajdradinovic replaced forward Esposito who was desperate to move, Piccoli came in as our cheap fourth choice forward in place of the departing Ademi and Jude Bellingham was brought in as our new first choice central midfielder after we felt we just couldn’t decline the nice offer for Bentancur. It was all very much a smooth operation.


     
    On the field, it was a less than great start as Roma defeated us in the European Super Cup in a game where we basically fired blanks.

     
    We also faced off against Roma in the Italian Super Cup and this time it was our turn for glory.

     
    Hagi had a standout game against Verona in the league where he scored a brace of goals and set up a further five.

     
    Atalanta failed to show up to the Italian Cup final and we very much took advantage.

     
    We made the European Cup final again and eventually came out on top to retain the trophy but it certainly wasn’t easy. Our opponents Man Utd raced away with two early goals and I thought that that was that but we fought back to pick up the win in a very close game.


     
    Another pretty much uninterrupted season for Ianis with 48 goals and 43 assists which keeps the 50/50 1k split dream alive. There weren’t any decent jobs available throughout so I tried to offer him a new deal here after the season had ended but we couldn’t meet his demands. Our budget was low though so the hope is that we can get him to sign once our budget replenishes after moving over to the new season. If not, then it’ll be squeaky bum time going into the last year of his deal. The corner routine I switched to a couple of years back seems to be decent, it’s just a balanced routine really as it’s only the assists we’re going for here but it works pretty well. If we’re successful here I’ll do a post on that and the tactic but for now we’re very much just focusing on trying to reach our target.

    Season 7
    Last season was a little frustrating with the Hagi injuries and the European semi disappointment but upon further inspection I’m not sure it was all that bad. I mean, Hagi still produced a reasonable return and the team was still pretty dominant so plenty to be optimistic about going forward.
    Our first choice playmaker Olmo suffered a bad injury in the off season that would keep him out for at least half of this season, so we needed a replacement. Foden was chosen to replace him for a hefty fee. A fairly good offer came in for Pinamonti in early January, which we ended up accepting and then brought Josh Sargent in as his replacement. Woodman was brought in to be our backup goalie, Cesar is a young right wing back and then there were a few promising graduates and we were done. Esposito spent most of the season unhappy as he wants a new challenge, so it’s looking highly likely that we won’t be able to keep him much longer. Also, Olmo and Gayà both left at the end of the season so we’ll need replacements for those two next year. Gayà’s deal was up and at his age I felt it’d be best to let him go and although Olmo had come back okay from his injury, he was about to hit 30 so the massive offer was too good to turn down.


     
    Some nice assist action going on for Ianis in this game against Atalanta with Martinez benefitting.

     
    Goal action this time for the main man in the Super Cup against Juve.

     
    A very one sided Italian Cup final against Roma.

     
    It was finally our year to win the big one too as we beat Real in the final.

     
    The title was won again and with a nice little jump up in goals scored.


     
    A nice new stadium.

     
    A steady return of 42 goals and 44 assists this year for Ianis. He suffered a twisted knee fairly early on in the season which kept him out for three weeks but it struck literally just before the international break so he didn’t miss many games. He’s looking really good now and very much in his prime so we just have to hope he can keep it together for the next few years without too many injury problems. Just the two years left on his deal though so I’m going to have to keep an eye on that as I don’t want to mess up and risk losing him. It’s a tricky one as unless he goes to pieces, it’s surely only going to be one of about three or four teams that could possibly sign him at this stage so I may be better off trying to extend his deal here by a year or two rather than leaving to try and sign him at a different club. I’ll probably leave it until after this next season and see if any suitable jobs come and if not, try to extend his deal here then.
