  1. - Update 19 - Amateur Player 19: Beto "Boot it" Lopez "Hurricane" made such a wind of things that there was always something storming. Disrupting training sessions, beef with teammates, contract issues - yeah right - as if I'm ever going to overpay an amateur! Other than that he did good in all fairness. As is we're 466 gls in the positive and 534 gls in the negative. Next Amateur Player -> from Portuguese club: Aguia Vimioso - player #19: Beto "Boot it" Lopez BG: So you just boot it? Beto: I do. BG: Isn't that a defensive player's duty? Beto: I'm always back defending. BG: OK, with great disrespect, this ain't the amateurs. Beto: I can't do what I do best? BG: You're at no times allowed back into your own half. Ever! Beto: Right. BG: You want to boot it? Beto: Uhm, no? BG: Yes, you will. Damn straight into their goal. Beto: Got ya, Boss. Before After Technical Attributes - wow, Technique jumped 2 skill points. That's a lovely surprise at 29y of age. I'll take that, thank you. Mental Attributes - look at that Movement jumping 3 skill points. Excellent improvement considering the player and time frame. I'm starting to believe. Physical Attributes - as usual no ups or downs. As far as I can remember I've had very few amateurs improve their fitness. I might get a second or third fitness coach in to 'force' bump these numbers. GOAL #1 - good start. Always nice to kickstart things with a goal to our guy. GOAL #10 - fast-forward to goal number 10. Only 1 in this game but it's the decisive one. Shame about the missed penalty, but I've had so so many at this point with all the amateurs I've played. Doesn't bother me anymore. GOAL #20 - and that's 20 in already. Right after halftime in the first 5min of the second half seems to be his fav period to score goals. He's taking advantage of the opposition still with their thoughts on the tactical plans of their coach to overthrow our dominance. Not happening. GOAL #30 - yes, finally hitting the 30 again. Goal 29 and 30 in. Been too many updates ago since we last hit 30 in half a season. "Boot it" earned himself a place in the club's HoF 👍 30 from 31 is not that bad. Delighted with his return and this means we're making good progress in this challenge. I'd love to keep "Boot it" for another few months as he's proved pretty durable and better at scoring goals than the previous handful amateurs I've had, but we gotta stick to the rules so time to start looking for any possible replacements. Didn't take me very long to get the next guy in as he's the last one on my shortlist, before adding fresh names to it. Thanks for the views and see you at the next update.

  2. There's never a risk signing a Dutchie, never forget that. Unless, unless you're a poor manager 😂 nah, going top, mate. Shame Siena missed out on that Serie A title.
  3. Tough luck on that injury but other than that nice sailing 👍 Next gig Eng and Fra? I smell trouble in the dressing room 😂
  4. I get what you're saying and I agree that shouldn't be happening. At least not when they're both at peaking age. Small differences are understandable as hidden attributes can make up a lot for lost (visible) attr numbers but other than that it's odd. One thing I can say tho is this that I've noticed a difference in the consistency lvl in performance of a so-called "great attr shit PA" players Vs a "shit attr great PA" one if you will. I'm just speaking from FMM exp, have no evidence for you, but all I can say is imo high PA players are generally more consistent players. Having that said, I'm a sucker for great attr players regardless their PA so I ALWAYS keep those around. Even if it's just as subs, just don't have the balls to sell 'em. Great PA players on the other hand are given time to grow, so what I do is give' em that time till at least 26-28yo. If their attr are still shit compared to fellow position players I just take the money, unless their match stats are out of this world.
  5. That WMOTY bug is nothing major of course but it's something that needs to be looked at at some point. Cause clearly *I'm* the best 😉 Well done on the frequent updates btw, the VPL has slowed things down on my side but you ffs keep steamrolling thru it 😂
  6. Only had like 5min but ended up listening to the whole f thing. 👍 👍
  7. Ah OK, all pics loaded, missed it earlier.. How many times have you won that World MOTY thingie?
  8. Smooth sailing. 👍 How's the MOTY working out for you, I've never won it in my save since it's always Klopp regardless his lvl of success. Wondering if you're having better luck here. Nearly there, Kane, nearly there.
  9. Funnily? From the outside maybe 😂 @Ian goodluck. Sorta. Last challenge was a one off, a mistake on my part, and I have no intention of getting a second substandard score in. So I suggest you don't pin all your hopes on another BG blunder cause those are as common as @samhardy is baking Christmas cookies on a Spring day.
  10. Congrats to today's winners. I got way more than I deserve, I'm the first to admit that. Wasn't your day Woody. I took a risk and it simply backfired. I'm quite used to getting poor players to score, but this time I came 8 gls short as the league was simply too short for that number of goals. Goes to show how thin the margin can be of getting an average score or great score. Maybe I underestimated the challenge a little bit as well tbh. A combination of that, the poor Welsh team I picked and the greed of wanting to go for all possible bonus points. I'd like to say that's a mistake I'm not making a second time this VPL but I'm a sucker for risks so we'll see what's next 🙂
  11. You sure, mate? 😁 As soon as the results are posted me and my big mouth may take a leave for a couple days until everyone's forgotten about this 👍
  12. Uhmm, ok. Maybe I didn't do so badly then.
  13. Great club. Of course you could've gone for the obvious ones but this league as well as the added challenge of rivaling PSV Ajax and Feyenoord to some extent should keep things exciting for a good number of seasons. I have a similar career in mind following my amateur garbage. So looking forward to seeing how this ride works out for you.
  14. Question is: How shit? Ditto. Still gotta say it was fun playing in Wales. I picked a new league cause it gets boring playing the same leagues every time. That plus the added challenge but no doubt it affected the end result.
