    Isn't that the beauty of it though?
    I've always thought you can't play the exact same way in every league. The fundamentals might be the same but just a slight tweek is needed.

    Great job with this mate, fantastic idea to combine badges, with I'd thought of it!
    Super bad luck with that injury though...

    Here are the players

    Serrano, who I actually sold to Juve a while back, but it went through as a bosman after I left

    Zirkzee, who always looks good but I have never used him

    And one @Scratch would be happy with, Esposito!
    Even managed to exchange some of the whiners to get these boys in, an added bonus!

    Scratch got a reaction from broodje kip in Who are your FMM 21 must buys?   
    @broodje kip - Did you post this and arrange everyone's answers as a giant troll to me? Did you send them all PMs saying "Whatever you do, don't include Esposito, that will send Scratch insane"? That's the only explanation I can see for everyone leaving him out! 😄
    A lot of the players I sign have been mentioned above, but upfront: Espositio and Badji - I would have included Pellegri and Sargent, but both got nerfed in the Winter DB. There's a bunch of other ones, I used, but they are the must buy ones. If I'm rich though: Lukaku. And of course Professor Carrillo everywhere I go.
    LW: Lainez... Develops really well.
    GK: Livakovic, only a few million to buy, will have lots of green after a few years, solid and reliable. Onana if I can afford him. Nubel too sometimes. 
    CD: Onguene is the one I buy the most (obviously Varane and Skriniar if I can afford them). 
    AMC/MC: Players like Berge, Maier, Gravenberch, Amiri are good cheaper options that develop well. That said there are so many good options that I switch around a lot. Tolissio for eg is great. And if you can afford it Goretzka and Barella. 😄
    RW: Hard now that Pavon isn harder to get and Vignato only appears when italy is loaded (and both are not as good as they were. So Daniel James or Manor Soloman most often.
    Heaps more, but better leave it there...

    I sort of feel like we need to organise the information better, somehow, because the thread is too long now and people clearly aren't reading it all.
    Maybe just editing the main page and linking to the latest? But even that doesn't seem like it would work well as sometimes several posts are needed to read. Maybe separate posts for each thing (shorter to read through the whole thing), and a main post that links to each one? 
    I don't know the answer, and don't have that much time to spend on it right now, but it seems like maybe we can do something, just don't know what.

    No need to update the store, this just equals my current shared record of 8 goals in a half, but I think I like this one better than my previous one for some reason...

    Season 2
    As I said above, this season has been very enjoyable with lots of big scores. It might be down to the team leveling up a little, or maybe the move to Balanced as the base for my tactic, or maybe even to the strength of the players coming off the bench.
    Whatever it was, it worked, and I'm sort of sad it's over now. Anyway, here is the write up for season 2.
     
    Transfers
    We made almost no changes at the start of the season, but Can and Dahoud weren't getting playing time, so in January we sold them and replaced them with Bruno and Llorente. We normally started with 5 of our 6 players and had the 6th and both Lukaku and Bruno coming of the bench. Not bad...
    Signing 2 new midfielders did make Goretzka paranoid though, thinking I was going to get rid of him. I kept playing him, but it didn't go away and he wouldn't sign a new contract, and his performances did drop off a little, so maybe it balanced out.
     
    Results
    We won the Supercup 5-2, with 4 goals for Brewster (he tended to score hat-tricks or more then have a few games taking it easy).  In a shock, we were knocked out of the DFB-Pokal in the Quarter Final by Leverkusen, going down 3-2. We breezed through the UCL, right up to the Final, where Barca beat us 3-2 to deny us the 20 point bonus But the main thing you're waiting to see is the league:

    It was a massive season and we earned 190 points (96 GD + 94 league points). 142 goals in the league! As I said above, very enjoyable.
     
    Injuries
    Sancho missed 1 month Haaland missed 3 weeks Bellingham missed 3 weeks Brewster missed 10 days  
    The Lad
    That's what the players looked like at the end of the season: All looking very good, although none have gone full superstar (yet).
     
    Contributions

    A magnificent season:
    60 points from Haaland, in another epic season from him. 28 points from Sancho, which was slighly underwhelming and did nothing to change my mind that he's not worth signing in FMM21. 33 points from Bellingham, who did well once again, even though he was often filling in the gaps (replacing Sancho at AM/T or Reyna RW). 32 points from Reyna, doing a good job out on the right wing. 43 points from Brewster, who proved himself a good option up front (would sign again).  36 points from Burkhardt, who was decent. And that adds up to 232 points.
    Put that together with the 190 points above in the team section and the total for this season is 422 points.
     
    Final Score
    379 points for season 1, plus 20 points for the season 1 UCL win (in the spoilers after the main season), plus 422 points for this season - that means:
    The total is 821 points
    Thanks for reading and sorry to @Rich who needs to work on his mind games a bit more...

    Gotta be in it to win it! Applies to tackles as well. I go for Pace and Positioning (and Decisions) first, then Tackling and Aerial. Of course, I'll take a player strong in all of them if I can get them!
    Yeah, agree totally with this. Not a nailed on superstar everytime like someone like Todibo. Which is why he's not on the wonderkid list. But he can be pretty good in the right save.
    As for his actual value, I believe that mostly depends on his reputation (which you can't see directly). But if he's at a top team, in a top league, and he's performing well, then that will go up quickly. And he's had 5 caps for England, increasing it more. So his value will be high. That said, £120M does seem pretty high for a defender!

    Thanks mate! He normally beats me, so I'm happy to get one over him. For now at least. The old Rich would have already started a save to try and beat this, but maybe I'm in with a chance as he's slowing down a lot now. 😄

    Interesting. For me Attacking worked really well for a while, then tailed off... I have no idea what's going on... Other than that you are totally wrong about that top spot thing. About to head over to the post to correct that now! 😄

    Hopefully they would still keep it inside the savefile, otherwise it would actually be hard to find your own ID. Knowing how things work (the basic person data is very structured, and u changed for years), they'll probably keep it. Though to be fair, I hope they can at least allow us to change out DOB.

    Thanks mate, haven't added it up yet, but would be surprised if I didn't knock him down a place. All be smooth sailing this season, lots of goals, lots of fun. Almost finished now, but sort of want to keep going for season 3! 😄

    Yeah, I'd want to do that too - if anything I'd love to rewrite the whole thing, but I don't have much time (the time I spent in the hospital bed was too much), so I couldn't do all that writing. There were so many exciting findings I wanted to share that I couldn't right now, and that saddened me... That, and the fact that I've met too many of the 4 kinds of people that slowly drained my motivation (and my ever shorter temper).

    He’s already back and reinventing himself as an Arsenal fan.

    I loved the fact he would just never retire and ended up as a shell of his former self waddling round the pitch trying to keep up with the young un’s.

    But since I've spend money on the game and all the in app purchases, I might as well just try to have fun.

    Scratch reacted to Ian in Ian attempts the Striker Peak Years Challenge (Season 5)   
    Yeah I was just thinking the other day about how I could see his hidden attributes being very good. It’s all good in the relationships page which is a good indication and he seems very good when it comes to injuries (touch wood). I remember he was very good last year even though I never used him much but it’s easy to see how perhaps he’s been boasted a bit for this years game after his form for Man Utd last year. I’ve got Leão and Maldini playing the role in my other save and they are great but not up to the level of Bruno. It may well be consistency as I notice those two will have a lot more poor frustrating games whereas there’s very little of those with Bruno.
    Thank you Ruvio, it does seem to be a great role and I’ve kind of amplified it going for DLF’s for the strikers. I originally had a similar system with more attacking striker roles which I’d altered for the Bruno badge challenge, in fact it might’ve been for the Messi and Ronaldo one last year but it was for the reason of getting more goals for the T player. I was tempted to try different striker roles here to try and spread the goals more but with it being goals and assists I just decided to leave it as the DLF’s I think assist better so probably six and two three’s.
    It really shows how good Lukaku is to be keeping up with him so hopefully they can both keep doing well.
