Wonder what tujague got... I highly doubt my 204 OR 39AQ player would fetch anything.

I took the General sponsor: 4*
Contract worth: 79,514,000
Weekly donation: 4,969,625

rejected the media deal. As it stands right now I will have enough cash to do the following next season
TR8 to TR10 , RF7 to RF9 , HR8 to HR10 and SA9 SA10 So that's the plan. Then in Season 3 save up for the first full triple. Which will take 5 seasons to payback

Heh, I played 7 Back-ups on VL....you go N-H and don't score the go-ahead goal until the 80th. You're team really does like to mess around. But you get the win, Fakeballers lose, I'm on track for the CwC.

But of course one of the 4 starters I left in the line-up managed to pick up his 2nd red card of the season.

Why the sale? You don't possibly need money. Or looking to boost the bang for a big splash or two?

suprvilce, nice payday on the player sale. Now I wish I had just put my guy on the market. I put him For Sale, not on the market.

That's my team all over again. It either ends in a blowout (those almost always go my way) or the other team scores an early goal and I'm forever trying to tie it or get the winner.

I think it has to do with McCready's sub-par season. I was expecting him to remain a goal per game player, but he's dropped to 0.71 per. And that's up from where he was earlier in the season. I honestly can't believe he's 4th in the league in scoring. And my team is tied for 3rd most goals!?! 16 goals from my Mids and 18(!) from the dmen. What? 18 goals from dmen seems obscene. It is. Last season it was 12 goals for the Mids and only 7 for the dmen. It's been a weird season that's for sure.

I'm just glad to get the win and move into 4th place. Amazing turnaround in the last week or so sees us gain 9 points on the Fakeballers. Hopefully I can hang on. Although I think he has a much easier schedule.

Well, I've too many players - AGAIN, and it's costing me a small fortune to keep 'em all.

I think I may dabble in the market if 1 or 2 come my way after the sales.

BTW, Tovarys was 6/6 at 17 years of age.

The 50k difference might be because I promoted? Plus the 10 OTR and managers (not sure if you have any or not), and it sounds about right. Is your HR level 7?

I'm now all but guaranteed to get at least 4th in soccer. If I win on Sunday, I'll probably get 3rd. Hmm. . . Just looked, and it's apparently possible for me to finish 1st in the league. Highly, highly unlikely, but still possible.

I was also 25 OTS behind at the beginning of the season.) You two are at 168 & 161, while I'm tied for 3rd with the High Headerz at 143. I guess the Betamax used a weaker lineup in his last game. No way he dropped to 136.
I'm looking to upgrade at LM specifically. Other positions would be considered as well if the upgrade was substantial. I'll have four RFAs next season, so I need to factor that into my financial planning.

I did my camps the first two weeks of the season as an experiment. I'm not sure about the other teams. The Betamax may be saving energy for the ChL (something Corona will not have to worry about - again).

Check out my LM who I'll be selling in 2-3 weeks.

You've got UFAs coming up? Man, you're a lot older than I am. I have five 23yos, but McCready is probably the only one I'd need to keep. Backup goalie is 24yo. I'll keep him if he's cheap and replace if not. I should probably replace him anyway.

Why isn't Simic getting any playing time?

And I imagine you as a Bond villain when you say that last line about the Coronas

Latest pull in soccer is a goalie, scouted Q's at 89/90/94/85/72. Been 3 seasons since I pulled a player with the relevant Q's that strong.

I'll keep him in mind, but I'm looking for more OR (at the same, or younger, age) in this case.

RFAs.

I have four 25-year olds. Sandy Bragg (CF) and Max Mark (RM) are most likely going to stay. Charles Seay (LM) is currently a starter, but will hopefully be replaced before he hits RFA. Erik Cheney (G) is currently a backup, but the third stringer will (probably) not surpass him before he hits RFA.

I have a trio of 24-year olds that include my top CD, my top SD, and my second best CM (5th highest OR on the team). They'll all expected to be starters next year. Which means I'll be putting off the decision to keep or sell until they hit RFA (with the possibility of a sign-and-sell).

Simic will get some more playing time as my top 3 CDs (IGR-wise) get lower on energy. I have shuffled him into a few games that I thought I'd be able to win with a few backups playing. He's pretty close to being named a starter for next season. Once my place in the standings this season is guaranteed, I'll re-evaluate the starters and what positions I need to upgrade. In the end, he should probably be getting more playing time now.

Quote:

The Boilermakers/Coronas rivalry has gone my way so far this year. I won the NC and will finish higher in the ChL. There's a strong possibility that I'll need to win out in the league to take home that trophy. That includes a trip to Corona-ville in the last week of the season. Perhaps you or the Betamax will be able to help me out with an upset over Corona. You and the Betamax happen to be responsible for my two losses (both while I had camps going).

Won my first Credit Tourney in handball. Had to beat Cataclysm to clinch the title. Up 4 points on 2nd place and one game to go. A nice 38-22 beating too boot... The academy was good again. Picked up a nice 5/6 RB with 219 and 70AVG That is 2 players this week above 200. Still awaiting this double pull. I finally got one for the staff this week. I am now ready to take on I.1 Will have to push for a top 5 finish as the sponsors make it worth it. Looking forward to a tough season ahead. Loving handball.

Man, your team is old. I guess that's why you're so far ahead of me. You picked much better players years ago. Players who could help you for much longer than what I had. Whereas I've had to replace my guys over the last few seasons. And I went younger. And I went cheaper because I had a bit less money. Hopefully I haven't screwed this up again.

Quote:

Yes, he should. If I can get away with playing Strickland at CD (10 games with 1139 OR), then you can certainly play the better Simic. There's only a few teams in the league who can give you any sort of trouble.

I'm going all out against the Coronas next time. That's a home game for me. Any pointers?

One of my former hockey pulls is on the market now, Žan Žuraj (on most expensive list atm), too bad he didn't go to a team with top facilities like i hoped, he is 18 and 770 OR along with 6/6. I bet you're regretting now that you didn't buy him

edit: made a purchase worth 24 250 800 today in hanball, kind of a wash with the player i sold, but this one seems to have good Qs even though he is only 230 OR. W'll have him scouted in 4 days. We all know he will drop to 5/6 tomorrow but still. I think my team needed to make a bold move which could either pay big or, in the worst case, i can sell him at 19 5/6 for big cash (assuming his Qs don't drop too much).

Now that he joined my team his Qs seem rather worse, especially his FiP and shot (69 and 75), i'll train him passing and then see if i want to turn him into a goalie, his unscouted goalie Q is 85.

We'll see how it works out, but for next season I expect to be able to hold onto the RFAs that I want to keep.

You're up to 47 players now? I'm not much better off at 44 (including today's goalkeeper prospect purchase), but the daily fees for having that many players is rough. Fees plus player salaries is back over 3M a day for me.

It looks like my players are, on average, 0.2 years older with 0.1 less CL. Not as big of a difference as I had imagined when I saw how many prospects you had.

I inserted him into today's line-up. He posted a 32 IGR (lowest on the team) and scored a goal in a 6-0 win. Sandy Bragg had a hat-trick and did not get player of the match...

I need to get my **** together with regards to the players. Again. I keep pulling these crappy players and keeping them. For no reason! They'll never sell for enough to make up for the fees.

Good luck holding onto your RFAs.

You're older on the top end. That gets hidden when it's spread out over 45 players.

Low for your team, but still better than probably all but a handful of dmen in the league at this point of the season. And he'll jump up pretty quickly as he gains chem. I wouldn't use him against the Coronas or Betamax, but everyone else is fair game. Unless you know they're going to play on High+.

Sandy Bragg is on a ridiculous run the last two years. He's just sick. More so because he isn't a super stud type of player. He's actually below average for even my team. You'll never have a 25yo with 1300 OR again in your career. The beast.

Damn. Is that how you're doing it? I've been trying to get corner kicks all these years. Would this strategy work in hockey as well?

Finally built my roster spreadsheet for handball- and my adjusted qualities are bad...very very bad. Time for this lvl 7 SA to start pumping out talent or I'll be dropping down before long.

I know the feeling when accepting borderline pulls and then holding onto them for way too long and not selling them for enough to cover the fees. There's been some other teams that have done a much worse job of this than me or you.

As for the RFAs, thanks. Of my four 25-year olds, only one doesn't have a replacement on the roster. I could theoretically sell off some established stars and allow some younger talent to start full-time. I have some very good players on my bench.

As best I can tell, Bragg's success is due to a combination of the following:
1) Experience
2) Luck
3) My team's system/tactics

By #3, I'm partly referring to him teaming up with Mark and Taganovich. Mark does not put up good numbers for his OR, but I like to think his shooting attribute helps Bragg somehow.

In soccer (and I may end up posting something related to this on the NT forum), I concern myself less with goals and more with winning possession and having more shots on target. If I win those, then I can attribute a loss (or in some cases, a tie) to bad luck. It would be different if my players had lower shooting attributes.
