  1. Maybe if he wins the Golden Ball, but no ATM. 🐘
  2. So nearly a good explanation, but then they gave Alex Centelles a +7 rise for playing in a poorer team (Bilbao finished 4th in Segunda B; Valencia II finished 11th) 🤔.
  3. No increases for Peru Nolaskoain and Jon Dopi? Important parts of Bilbao Athletic (Athletic Club youth team) in Segunda B. Funny because they rose a few Sevilla Atletico players today.
  4. After following EC35130 for a while, I finally took the plunge at the end of Season 1. To make things interested, I picked last-placed Chester FC in Division 5. Yet after splashing 7 Million on players, the board expects us to go up. About Chester Chester are a fairly interesting club. Bordering Wales, our Deva Stadium is located in Welsh territory. Our most famous player (Ian Rush) is also Welsh. Yet we remain an English club, which has given rise to a great rivalry with Wrexham. Our town was colonised by the Roman Empire and then Wales. Thus, despite Chester having the lowest starting budget and team rating, this team is not short of intrigue. Starting XI Given our team's position, we really had to deliver in recruitment. Ultimately, it was a mixed bag. The recruitment of Loren Moron (for a club-record 800k) masked an overzealous focus on youth, though fortunately we still have a bit of money left. All in all, Chester's interesting background and the chance to turn Loren and friends into club legends will make this a fun journey.
  5. Czech just happened, but hopefully it's the others. It has been a long wait for Hopcutt.
  6. That was exactly how I got Aouar. Wanted to make a big signing, even though he cost 2.8 Million.
  7. I went in for Kounde after six appearances in the league. Fortunately Bordeaux delivered and finished 6th despite struggling at first.
  8. I don't play the risers game as I'm not familiar with the smaller Leagues. It's a risk, as we see in swanseajack's thread. But obviously I'm no expert, considering I could only send out a 80 AVR team before the Ligue 1 reviews.
  9. I have Aouar in my team too. Much happier with my team now. Can play four positions in my 4-2-3-1 too.
  10. Thank you! Moraes Jorge, Sime Vrsaljko
  11. I'll have to sell some of these players to raise funds. Who should I sell? 1) Sofiane Alakouch - Nimes full back, was linked to Arsenal 2) Tyler Adams - New York RB midfielder, linked to Leipzig 3) Jeremy Gelin - Rose to 85 today, may have peaked, but will play in Europe next season 4) Joseph Attamah - Ghanian international, will play in Europe next season 5) Alphonso Davies - Very high potential but slow to increase
  12. You pay wages for 20 turns. So you will make a slight loss on low cost players. Of course you can do this for higher cost players, but you risk losing them to rival clubs.
  13. Rodri Hernandez, Lorenzo Pellegrini and Lucas Torreira No, you will make a loss if the player doesn't increase his rating.
  14. Congrats on the Championship, my joint-best players would be lucky to get into this team.
  15. Thanks for the replies. Just two more questions before I retreat back into my cave: Rank the following full backs: Sofiane Alakouch, Tyler Adams, Kyle Walker-Peters and Valentin Rosier and Rank the following midfielders: Tyler Adams, Fabio Depaoli and Scott McTominay
  16. Have to go with Robertson/Ake as well. Who to buy between Fabio Depaoli (Chievo) and Scott McTominay (Man United)? Money is a problem, so I can only buy one of them.
  17. To be fair, they upgraded Enrico Brignola from 74 to 75...
  18. Nope, assisted two in the victory at Roma and played 90 mins in the 3-0 victory against Napoli. 89 is his level.
  19. Would have been happy with 84, but hopefully they're waiting for the playoff finals on the 26th.
  20. Sofiane Alakouch - 80 (Interest from Arsenal, potential international with Morocco) Umut Bozok - 80 (Interest from Lyon, Marseille, Galatasaray) Kingsley Schindler - 80 -> 83 (Interest from Bremen? The goal against Wolfsburg in the Relegation Play-off could have sealed his 83 today) That's all I know of lower-league players outside England. The English Championship seems disappointing for folks expecting many 78 --> 82 rises, but I'll see how Alakouch and Bozok do.
  21. Examples? Not many I can think of (apart from the top teams and Stevens)
  22. 83 for Ryan Sessegnon is puzzling for a player pursued by many top sides, including Real Madrid. Only others shafted were Enda Stevens and Tim Ream.
