    Well done. Good to see the ITN too. Nice to see a talented Welshman try a DT for once.

    I doubt it will be for long. Players of their calibre usually start demanding more.
    Haha!

    Vibe Premier League 2021, Semi-Final Result
    The last round was about scoring goals whilst still keeping it tight at the back but there’s none of that this week as the simple aim is to score 100 goals in as few games possible for the right to face @Rich in the grand final.
    First we delve into @Woody’s result. His team of choice was Real Madrid and he breached the 100 goal mark in March which was 39 games in all competitions. He was sitting 2nd in the league at the time and had won 29 of his 39 games in charge but the only thing that matters was the amount of games it took for him to reach 100.

    So @broodje kip needed to get the job done in less than 39 to reach the final where Rich is waiting. Broodje went for Man City and was sitting pretty at the top of the league when he got to 100.
    And that moment came in January which was comfortably earlier than his opponent, 11 games before. Some crazy scorelines in there included a 7-5 win over Birmingham in the FA Cup, a 4-3 defeat to Man Utd and a 5-2 defeat to Bayern in the CL. The defeats don’t mean anything though and the goals helped him earn this win with a score of 28.

    So it’s well done to Broodje who takes the win and we have our final. Commiserations to Woody but he had his best season in the VPL so far finishing 2nd in the league just unfortunately he couldn’t build on his semi.
    Result (lowest score wins)
    Woody 39-28 broodje kip
    The final... who do you think will win?

    Mentoring, loaning, playing regularly but not over-playing. Hard to say though cos it's not really clear what you want. If you put more detail in your question, you'll get more detailed answers

    I've completed the 1kc this year so it's time for part two of the Triple Crown. I've chosen two Italian players, resisting the overwhelming urge to use Esposito + anyone. I'll be using two others that I haven't seen used in these challenges. 
    I've also chosen Germany because I needed an excuse to use Bayern this year as their squad is nearly perfect for my DT tactic. Im using the same setup I used in my DT last year with Greenwood and Sancho at Man City. I've not tested it at all on this years version yet so I'm anxious and excited to see if it's still effective. 
     
    So...
    THE CLUB

     
    THE PLAYERS


    Two players that already look good. Hopefully I'll get them to World class as quickly as possible. At Bayern that should be easy.
     
    Season 1
    Transfers:
    As with all challenges like this, I aim to become National coach of my chosen players as soon as possible just to complete the challenge quicker. I'm not really a fan of International management but I feel its essential. So, that means signing the best talent from my chosen players nationality to give them plenty of game time so they're also ready for when I'm the National manager. 
    There's almost an Italian starting 11 there. Couldn't quite get a LM that I felt was good enough so that'll be the aim next season. The ever so effective Carillo to mentor my chosen players.
     
    Competitions:
    An amazing season. I played an almost completely Italian team in the League games and my strongest team in all other competitions. Worked wonders!
     
    The Players:
    Just a couple of small injuries for Colombo this season. He only played three games less than Salcedo though so a very good start.
     


    It's early, I know but I'm slightly disappointed with Colombo's return. Granted, Salcedo is my penalty taker but he seriously misses twice as many as he scores. 🤦‍♂️ There was no target this season but I'll be looking for over 100 between them from now on.
    They've improved immensely which I'm super happy about.
     
    Colombo: 21
    Salcedo: 50
    Total: 71
     
    Manager History & Profile:


     
    I'm happy overall and I think the tactic works, which is the main thing. Hopefully we kick on from here. The lads look good and the rest of the squad has improved really well too. 
    Thanks for reading. 👍

    This is pretty crazy:

     
    I'll be watching both live. What age are we considering "old"? I turned 36 at the end of March. 🤔😆
     
    The two NXT nights have finished now? I'll probably watch them tomorrow during the day (before the UFC which airs at a UK friendly time, for once 😁). Then I'll watch the HoF ceremony (there will be one, right?) on Sunday after the Toon game.
    Weekend sorted! (Sorry kids 🤣)

    Rob reacted to Scratch in Rob tries 50/50 with Pipi - Season 01   
    Great start, especially for someone so young. You'll be averaging 50 each soon enough I think.
    The selling thing is a strange one, but I've seen it happen. Sometimes things just line up so that there aren't many buyers for the players. Not sure exactly what's behind it or when it happens. I think it's something to do with both club and player reputations and the leagues loaded combination.
    Maybe the players are all overrated, but the game knows that and noone is willing to pay for players that are really more average than they seem. Or maybe it's the opposite and the player's reputation values are lower than they should be because they are playing in Portugal for eg, so noone wants them becasue they aren't quite famous enough. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Who knows...

    Great stuff! 
    I'm finding it ridiculously hard to sell players this year. Was easy to build a war-chest on last years version but I can't do so with any team on this. Frustrating, yes. But it's not just you, Sir.

    Season 01
    Season 1 is all about settling in and not getting the sack in my eyes! With a club like SLB it’s then about building up the squad, reputation, and therefore generating more cash to play with. 
    Once the squad is to the standard I hope in, say, 3-4 seasons it’s then about keeping players happy and managing retirements.
    Keeping that all in mind, transfers were quite fun early on. The intention of pretty much every signing was to buy cheap with a 50% sell-on, improve them so they are of a mega-million standard, and then use as trades for better players.
    Pipi was the obvious bargain, but every other player fulfilled the above criteria. South America is a great place to shop, with Villa, Henrique, and Ugarte players I’ve used plenty of times before and it’s no secret they develop nicely.
    I found selling players difficult at Benfica. No matter how low I offered them out barely anyone seemed interested. A flaw in the game or a flaw in my transfer ability? Who knows!
    Did you know that there are 30,000 different species of fish? Blew my mind a bit. I’ll ask for something really random next time I go to the chippy! 
    We won the league and cup double, lost in the League Cup final, and got (sort of) FMMed by Liverpool in the Champions League... which is something that always seems to happen to me.
    Pipi has improved quite a bit, mostly at the end of the season - does this happen for everyone else? - and scored 24 and assisted 30.
    I think that’s a solid start rather than being spectacular or disappointing. Considering. I’d be happy with an average of 40 a season across the career so we aren’t too far off already.
    Thanks for reading!
