    Scratch got a reaction from Dai_ in Scratch Tries The Split 1KC (Actually Completed!)   
    Also, one of the delights of this save has been the short team names in the game screen:

    I mean... FCK  MAN C. For that matter FCK anyone we play at home...
    I'll miss that when I wrap this save up...

    Scratch got a reaction from Rich in Ian goes for a 1kc with Lorenzo Colombo (Season 2)   
    Oh, my, I was going to say don't catch that quitting mentality from @Rich and myself! 🤣
    Glad to hear you'll be going on with it. It's weird when that happens, I just had that this season with Lainez. He just stopped assisting for some reason (well it was down to about 3 or 4 assists in 5 games, which was way lower than before). Same tactic, mostly the same personnel (but some tweaks) and bam it all changes. 
    Anyway, hopefully that's a blip and next season will be back to that form from the previous season.

    Seasons 8 to 10
    This will be super quick, not even gonna bother with transfers anymore as it's a handful of young regens coming in and a few fringe players leaving each year.
     
    Tactics
    I gave the first half of season 8 above - I tried strikerless and it was okay, but not better than anything else, so I went back to this for the remainder of the save (tinkering days done now):

    It looked really good at first, but then ended up similar to anything else after a bit. It's really hard to find a tactic that is next level. There are some that definitely don't work as well, but there are quite a few that give similar results.

    Development
    This is what he looks like at the end of Season 10 - about the same, but a bit of attribute loss from an injury.

    Just a word on injuries, I haven't bothered to write them up this time around, but he's been injured most years. Been relatively lucky I guess. For eg his longest injury was 2 months, but it happened a couple of weeks before the 6 week mid season break they have in Denmark. His one month injury in season 10 (before the screenshot above) may have been the most impactful as it came right in a busy bunch of games.

    You can see the last 3 seasons here:

    As you can see, season 9 was insane assist-wise, but then it really dropped off in season 10 for no particular reason - same tactic, mostly same personnel (a couple of tweaks), but nothing to explain that. Anyway...

    He's made the 500 for assists and just needs 47 goals to wrap this up.
    Is this a good time to announce I'm abandoning this save so I can do a Sugar Daddy Newcastle save?
    Nah, not even I would abandon it this close to the finish line...
    Thanks for reading.

    I feel like the proper response (if I was staying in character as a "tactics please" guy) would be something like "Tactics". 
    But I actually don't want to see your tactics, as that would just make me go and tweak mine again, just when I think I'm over that phase (for now)...

    Oh, yeah! I just started a Newcastle save and bought Mbappe, Neymar, Messi, Ronaldo, and Kane to play up front! Goodbye Copenhagen! 🤣Only joking of course...
    I feel like this tactic might do well in a 1KC and assist 1KC combo (with different people). The TM is getting 70 goals a year without pens and without proper wingers (they play as W but have low crossing). If Lainez was playing wide and crossing it in with his 19/20 Crossing, I think the TM would be scoring big. And if Lainez can get 77 assists through the middle (plus corners), I think I'd finally crack the 100 in a season if he was playing wide...
    But oh well, one more season and I'll probably stop this (or season and a bit if that's what it takes)...

    Well I'd have to lose that bet on purpose! No one here actually watches Neighbours... Or drinks Fosters... We just send that crap overseas to gullible countries.
    Nice! But ditto...
    Leads me to a story - in the late 90s, I was living in a little village outside Oxford and used to go to a small gym in Witney. I went in one day, and there's Craig McLachlan (who starred in both Neighbours and Home and Away). It was super weird - two Aussies in a tiny gym in the UK countryside with only a couple of other people in there. He picked up on my accent and said hi, and obviously I said hi back, but didn't say much else - wasn't sure what to say! 
    Anyway, I guess that just goes to show that I must be in the "crap we send overseas" bucket too, though I like to think I'm rehabilitated now...

    Good start. Probably because you bought Barella. I think you can do better if you had bought Ajer, Mikey and Goretzka.

    Thanks mate. I've enjoyed playing with the tactic and writing it up, but I'm over it now. After the 6 months of strikerless (which I need to write up), I've settle on a tactic. It's not any better with getting him goals than any of the others - about a goal a game - but I will stick with it until the end now. I think...

    SI Games are on record (earlier this year) that they won't do this, basically because the game doesn't use it at all, so it might mislead people.
    For eg people might start trying to buy a tall striker who has good Aerial - but his height was already included in calculating the Aerial value, so people shouldn't take that into account. There is literally no difference in the game engine's eyes between a 190cm player with Aerial of 16 and a 150cm player with Aerial of 16.
    So don't expect it any time soon.
    Interestingly though, it seems the height and weight of players IS actually in the save files - so it must be included when they run their FM database to FMM database program - but it's not actually used.

    Well done mate and good to see that someone can still finish a career around here! Not like that @Rich or some others I could mention (cough me cough)!! I find it much easier to make a striker who's strong in the air score, great to see someone doing it differently. Great stuff!

    Nice start, decent improvement this season and likely another jump next season (even taking the CWC into account). Onwards and upwards from here!
    Um... What? Editing my tactic right now... I've never changed that, didn't even realise it was there (only ever used it for corners!).

    Absolutely smashing it Scratch. Not a fan of the tactic sharing myself - I think I’m in a group of one there - but you are destroying it!
