    I think you better get yourself to the doctor quick smart! Something's not right here... 🤣
    Massive season mate, and man isn't Haaland good? I've only ever used in once, in my current TT as a back up and he looked just like that and was scoring regularly off the bench (until he got fed up and I had to sell him). It's great to see him in full blown action here. Just lethal...

    Thank you Ian, appreciated😁
    I know, once I start something I can’t stop playing, get really addicted to some games and can’t stop playing. Yeah there stats are brilliant, they look the perfect strikers to me.
    I know I thought I could change a couple of things from my 3 up top and it would work great, didn’t work like that at all though, I’ve created something brand new now and it seems to be working well. Envious of your totals with Inter!
    I know I couldn’t quite believe it was only two pages for once😂😂
    Cheers Scratch 👍

    Yeah, I have an app, Android only to start with, almost finished and ready for a beta release (though been like that for a while, really need to spend some more time on it). Got a few bugs to fix first, but hopefully will get to beta soon.

    Sorry, had this open in a tab since last week and only got to it now. You're really getting through the seasons!  The lads look great and are doing well. Haaland is just pure class but Esposito not too far off him and a couple of years younger. I wonder who will score more in the end. 
    I find it funny that your front 3 tactic works better for you than the front 2 one because I'm totally the other way! 😄 Just goes to show how great this game is - so many ways to play it and no two people will get exactly the same results. 
    Anyway great stuff, keep it up and lastly, congrats on getting the transfers down to only two screenshots! 😄

    Update - Season 7
    At this point of the save, one season seems like another. The lads had settled into a fairly consistent routine and I went into the season expecting more of the same. But as mentioned above, by the end of March the lads were on track for their biggest season yet.
    Could they bring the season home with a big score? Or were injury and despair just around the corner? Let's see.
     
    Transfers
    I mentioned most of the outgoing transfers last update (as they happened at the end of last season). As I said then:
    We sold a number of players: Haaland who was sick of warming the bench, Sterling and Bernardo Silva who both hit 30 and had their ratings drop, and Bailey who'd gone down the 'get injured and never recover my attributes' path.
    And apart from that we sold a couple of fringe players and bought a young striker who will hopefully grow into the backup role that Haaland left empty.
     
    Results
    Here are our results for this year (not perfect for a change):
    We won the Euro Super Cup, but I missed the screenshot.
    We won the Spanish Super Cup, beating Real Madrid 3-1 in the final.
    We won the Spanish Cup, beating Levante 4-1 in the final.
    We won the league, scoring 163 goals (beating our record by 1).
    We LOST the Champions League final, going down to 3-1 to Tottenham (and they had the better of the game).
     
    Injuries
    Our luck held up! After having a lot of injuries last year, we were injury free this season. The only 'injury' was an in-game one (ie has to come off, but no follow up injury) to Martinez, which knocked his condition down to 43% and meant he missed 2 games.
     
    Development
    They ended the season looking like this:



    Todibo keeps getting better - his Shooting is up to 17 now and what a defender too! Martinez and Godfrey are finished development, but Martinez bounced back nicely from his injury last year (took all season to get back to the upgrade point).
     
    Goals
    Here are there totals from this season:
    Todibo scored 47 goals from 54 games
    Martinez scored 43 goals from 51 games
    Godfrey scored 48 goals from 51 games
    More even distribution this season, with Martinez taking a turn in the middle position (but he doesn't score as much as the other even when he has the best position). Also, I rested them slightly more often than in other years and I think keeping them fresh helped.
     
    Totals
    Season Todibo Martinez Godfrey TT Total 01 39 17 27 83 02 50 16 43 109 03 38 36 35 109 04 54 39 22 115 05 33 42 47 122 06 34 37 56 127 07 47 43 48 138 Total 295 230 278 803/1500 Our biggest season yet by some way and without the Club World Championship to boost the goals. They faded slightly at the end - I was targeting 140 and we fell short of that, but still it was a great season.
     
    Looking Forward
    We are past halfway now. If we average 120 to 130 per season, we'll need another 6 seasons to complete this. But with Martinez and Godfrey already 28, we'll have to see if we can maintain that sort of total once we get closer to the end. It could end up dragging out.
    Anyway, all we can do is come back next year and hope for another one like this season.

    I just had no idea how this would go so just kept my original test saves from before I started and would every so often try things on those. I think I was three seasons in before I started posting as the community challenge was still ongoing so I didn’t want to start until that was finished so I did a lot of testing then. I’m not even sure if the end tactic is any better than the starting one in truth though as the team changed and the two players gradually improved too so difficult to work out as you say.
    Yeah, I definitely think 30 is the best time to get rid as usually they’re still valued fairly highly then too. I’ve kept a few going too long here really but this next season I’ve brought a few more youngsters in and a few more oldies will be leaving at the end of the season so we aren’t far away now from getting the squad in good shape, as long as the new players are good enough that is.
    I wasn’t really sure how to go about the Brazil job but in the end I just went for it the easygoing way. I can see first hand now, how players don’t develop well under the a.i. as some of these peak aged regens just aren’t good enough up be playing for Brazil in truth.
    I’m wondering if SI just keep the Brazilian names like this out of spite because of the legal problems they’ve had with Brazil over the years.
    Next season will be up in a minute.

    Update - Season 6
    Last season was our best yet, but this season had just a hint of possible trouble to come.
    We started shipping more goals. A couple of our older players (28-30) had their averages drop. And despite having a lot of big wins, it felt like we had more games where we struggled to convert our chances and had to scramble for a late win. It was still a great season, but I feel like changes will be necessary in season 7.
    But... I'm getting ahead of myself. Here's what happened in season 6.
     
    Transfers
    Not much to report, at least according to the screenshot: We sold a couple of fringe players who didn't amount to much and brought in another promising youngster.
    Not long after taking that screenshot, we sold a number of players: Haaland who was sick of warming the bench, Sterling and Bernardo Silva who both hit 30 and had their ratings drop, and Bailey who'd gone down the 'get injured and never recover my attributes' path.
    I'm guessing they'll show up in next season's screenshot, but thought I mention them just in case. We have a bunch of players who've been on loan for a few years and are ready to take over from this lot.
     
    Results
    Here are our results for this year:
    We won the Euro Super Cup beating BMG 2-1.
    We won the Spanish Super Cup, beating Atletico Madrid 4-1 in the final.
    We won the Spanish Cup, beating Real Madrid 2-1 in the final.
    We won the league, scoring 162 goals.
    We won the Champions League, beating Borussia Dortmund 2-0 in the final.
    We LOST the Club World Championship Final, dominating PSG, but ultimately going down 2-0.
     
    Injuries
    To make up for an injury free season last time around, the FMM gods rained injuries down on the lads:
    Todibo: 1 month, 3 weeks.
    Martinez: 3 weeks, 10 days, a few days.
    Godfrey: 10 days.
    Fortunately, most of them were short, so not much to complain about, all things considered.
     
    Development
    They ended the season looking like this:



    Todibo down 1 Movement and Decisions as a result of the injuries. Martinez down 1 across a lot of attributes, including Movement and Shooting. Godfrey about the same as last season.
     
    Goals
    Here are there totals from this season:
    Todibo scored 34 goals from 51 games
    Martinez scored 37 goals from 51 games
    Godfrey scored 56 goals from 55 games
     
    Totals
    Season Todibo Martinez Godfrey TT Total 01 39 17 27 83 02 50 16 43 109 03 38 36 35 109 04 54 39 22 115 05 33 42 47 122 06 34 37 56 127 Total 248 187 230 665/1500 Our biggest season yet, but without the Club World Championship it would have been only 112 goals.
     
    Looking Forward
    A decent season, but as mentioned above we need to freshen things up a little. There's hardly anyone worth buying, so we'll give some of our youngsters a chance in the first team.
    Apart from that, it's full steam ahead - we should pass the halfway mark next season!

    Thanks all, and yeah @Scratch the tweaks make sense but I was worried the drop in Ronaldo’s goals would affect the score, but he managed a few more assists and Messi’s increased goal return made it a positive change. I look forward to your effort soon.
    I have a particular player in mind for my next challenge, I just want to find the appropriate challenge for him.

    Great work mate, that's a massive score. Interesting the tweak the instructions had on the output from the two players, though I guess that makes sense. 
    This is such a great challenge - though I hope people stop doing it! I really want to try this one using the tactic I used for my Inter DT, but the second I pause my current career to to try this, that career will be over! 😄
    Anyway, great work, can't wait to see what you get up to next...

    Update - Season 5
    I've accepted that the number of goals for our trio will be around 120 per season and won't be reaching the heights of my DT save, which made this season less frustrating than the previous seasons. I am now The Calm One...
     
    Tactics
    I ended up using the 1 2 1 3 3 tactic I showed you last time for the whole season. I'm happy with our results and the number of goals scored (although too many go to the other players). None of my tweaks have improved much, so I think this will be the tactic for the rest of the save.
     
    Transfers
    Bellerin left because our backup youngster had reached the same level as him and needed to play more.
    Lemar was a shadow of his former self after successive injuries and unlikely to ever get back to his best, so we let him leave.
    Varane declined, bringing him down to Upamecano and Konate's level. With only one position to share, these three took turns at being unhappy and I decided Varane should go. No-one would buy him (there were bids I couldn't respond to), so we had to go for a part exchange.
    Coming in was Bailey, partly to give us a better LW option and partly to help us get rid of Varane in exchange.
     
    Results
    We won everything AGAIN this year (getting tiresome):
    We won the Euro Super Cup beating Bayer Leverkusen 3-1.
    We won the Spanish Super Cup, beating Atletico Madrid 4-0 in the final.
    We won the Spanish Cup, beating Atletico Madrid 3-0 in the final.
    We won the league, scoring 159 goals (our best so far and a big jump on last year).
    We won the Champions League, beating Schalke 4-1 in the final.
     
    Injuries
    In what's a first for me during my multiplayer careers (all my careers this year), we got through the entire season without any of the main lads getting injured. There wasn't even one of those in-game injuries that doesn't lead to a full injury.
    I'm into the next season now and I can tell you this luck doesn't hold, but what a fantastic season!
     
    Development
    They ended the season looking like this:



    Not much movement now. Godfrey got to 20 Movement (but also got +2 for both Positioning and Tackling). Martinez has finished development now. The other two limping towards an update, but I'm surprised they aren't fully developed now.
     
    Goals
    Here are there totals from this season:
    Todibo scored 33 goals from 52 games
    Martinez scored 42 goals from 51 games
    Godfrey scored 47 goals from 51 games
    For the first time, I swapped their positions around, with Godfrey moving to the central position and Todibo moving to the left position (which doesn't score as much).
     
    Totals
    Season Todibo Martinez Godfrey TT Total 01 39 17 27 83 02 50 16 43 109 03 38 36 35 109 04 54 39 22 115 05 33 42 47 122 Total 214 150 174 538/1500 We finally made the 120 mark! But only because all 3 made it through the season without getting injured...
     
    Looking Forward
    I'm thinking that as the players reach their peak (ie very shortly), we may see the 120 mark become the average, even taking injuries into account. I'm hoping I'll wrap it up in 8 seasons, but two of the lads will be 33 by then, so it's more likely going to take 9 seasons.
    Anyway, for now, I just gonna play on...

    Scratch got a reaction from Nick11 in In game editor ⭐ rating and CA-PA value.   
    It goes up in 20s. So 3.5 star is from 120 to 139. Then 4 star is 140 to 159. Etc.
    I haven't heard of the real PA decreasing if you demote a player. It normally stays the same throughout the player's career. The only thing I know that can bring it down is if they have a serious injury and that is really really rare. They do sometimes get increases when a high PA player doesn't come back as a normal regen but has their PA distributed to random young players.
    But I don't know everything that can happen so anything is possible I guess!

    Thank you Richard, yes we just need to keep going now.
    Thank you Aaron, they seem strong now and hopefully they have a couple more good years left in them.
    Thank you Scratch, hopefully another two or three seasons and they’ll hit their target. I did want to get them to the target with just club goals, we’ll just have to see on that one although it does look doable but if I can get them to sign another extension.
    I made the little change half way through season nine and the second half of that season was great and this seemed good too but it could all just be their age. I am going to put the tactic up before the season 11 update but I don’t think I’m going to go into too much detail on it as I don’t think many would want to use such a tactic and I know I’m going to struggle getting everything down if I try to detail everything. I mentioned that little bit about the AM yesterday and there’s stuff like that for nearly every position plus when I think of one thing, another thing comes up and it’s giving me a headache basically. To be honest, even writing these updates out is quite challenging for me and although I have improved as I’ve been on here, it’s a struggle at times.
    Yeah, I noticed it when I first got this years game. I think it’s probably always been similar but this year it feels more pronounced and if I go with too many youngsters I seem to pay the price.
    Yes, that is something I’ve noticed a few times with players. Rod has just had that month long one at the end of the season but luckily it hasn’t really hit any of his attributes.
