I'm 16 day scouting Ripley, hopefully he is as good as he shows. I'll sell if he's really overvalued. Would a minimum bid of 20 mil be reasonable?

That's him again.

Oh no! Sorry to hear that. Well kinda, you know what I mean. He's my first ever national player so I'm pretty thrilled!

Sorry Charlie, my guy must just have the skillz

Anyway, nice win today vs the last place team. I played my "backup" goalie who has slightly better stats but much better experience. I needed this win. Without it and I dig myself a big hole.

Cagle scored 3 goals on 3 shots. He's scoring on 52.9% of his shots. I had to make his line the 3rd line to make room for the new boys. I was worried they wouldn't get as many scoring chances, but they ended up with 11 shots. That might be good enough to keep them down there.

The "best team" in IV.4 has lines whose average ages are 33, 32, 29 & 28 I play them tomorrow. Their AIs are only around 120-130, but I expect them to cause trouble for my young pups
Is that the dude that used to buy old guys in IV.3? I forget his name, but always thought he had a bad strategy.

I won tonight 4-2. Haven't lost a game yet this season, but that probably changes tomorrow night. HC Komik Lobotomik has put together a strong team, and will probably knock me off.

Oh yeah, someone put a 20million dollar bid on one of my UFAs. I have to give him a 15million bonus to match. That seems awfully pricey. I have a younger player that can take his spot, but I lose about 20AI. Also, the UFA is close to 200AI, so I can probably get more than 20 million if I sell him. I think he is 84/29. It's a tough choice. I have the money to keep him, but I'm not sure he's worth the money.

I don't mind that he's off the team. It's only one game a week. But I am surprised. I expect him to get back on the team eventually. If he keeps training like he has been, he might pick up 35AI this season. And he'll have around 45 experience. If he doesn't make the team, then we should have no problem promoting

Haha. That was Selmi! I had to look him up. He's in V.6 now. His stadium is still bizarre, but he does have some youngsters playing now.

I paid 37M to keep Bruno Lorefice when he was around 190AI

Well, he turns out 92/82 which still makes him my best youth pull for over 10 seasons IIRC. A 17yo with the dreaded -? loyalty though

Meh, I got responses regarding my players I tried to force into national teams. Apparently the Slovak team wants players who have 40+ exp and 100+ AI, aka impossible at my league level... blah! Finnish manager said I should contact him once Savikurki reaches 40 attack... lol? He still only has 9 pass, should I start training his attack or wtf?

Well. 5 wins so far. Playing a competetive team tonight (close in AI) that I think played on high last night. I think I can take him with some tinkering to tactics without burning too much TS. I'm not high on TS as it is now. I have a number of easier games coming up though.

Fun things:
the three teams with higher AI17 than me (i have 162.2 they have 167/169/171) are below 3rd place. One is barely in a playoff position.
Still a long way to go though.

If you have a borderline player who you want on the team, then you should listen to the coach. If you don't think he will make it, then ignore him

I was impatient and did a one day scout.

Player is a 99Q 65P Pretty much the same start as Hinojosa (started 100Q 66P I think), who is now a 287AI at age 26. I think I pulled him from the YS at about 70AI. Partridge will take longer to develop at 51AI, but he'll be a star, you can bet on it.

He said in Finnish discussions that he was shocked how bad the overall main attributes were for the players after he got chosen so he said his main goal for this practise season is to get players main attributes to respectable level. His team, his rules. I agree with tujague about what you should do.

His ATT is 22... to get him to 40 this season is possible but I can't play him then... but then, he didn't mention any exp...

Wow. I started that 18yo 59AI goalie. I expected him to give up a quick goal, then Mierz Nasty would take over. He pitched a shutout. We win 1-0. Against the oldest team ever (only 6 players under 30yo in the starting line-up, only 1 is under 25). I really expected to lose this one.

New pull D.White is injured for 5 days. Why do my prospects always get hurt?

In the first 5 games, 7gf 7ga.

In game 6, against a new team, 8gf, 0ga.

I scored more goals today than I have in the entire season

Way to go offense! Now score a goal in a game that actually matters

Haven't posted here in a while!

Been getting killed on a regular basis in IV.2. But at least I'm getting close to 100 T/R (working on 95 at the moment). I expected to be demoted right away anyways, but there may be some hope for me... just maybe?

Haha! My team, too, scored as many goals in game 6 as in the first 5 games together. Was 6-13 in first 5, and now I won 6-2... playing against a team 23 AI higher.

Tho my AI keeps rocketing up, +0.4 to both tonight.

What does your team train at as a team on average.

my scouting page said about 33.5% today, but it should go up after tonight, because I have hopefully 8-10 losers getting sold off for nothing, just to get rid of them.

33.89 tonight. A bit lowish, actually. I too have a ton of trash on market right now, if at least half of them sells I'll be happy.

Having trouble filling my stadium. Have to set ticket prices below 1000 to try and get a sell out.


Might just ramp em up and get more profits with a small crowd.



edit:

no i shouldn't. I'm making more now than i did with the price higher. Lower and lower we goooo!

Had a good 6-2 away win tonight against a playoff team so very happy with that to move to 9th. Scraping 8th place is the target this year

Wow your teams train at 33% a day?? That's impressive! Mine is around 30% on game days. (30.3 today)

I guess I have a bunch of T&S with lower quality still on my team? How many players with <70 and <80 Q do you guys have on your team?
