2 draws and 2 defeats in the last 4 matches, yep you guessed it, it's December, this means its time for the annual 'slump' that the game enforces upon you, whereby your players seem handicapped, your inputs don't work, and the opposition is a constant stream of 70's Brazil. It's tough going, all you can… Continue reading Another one bites the slump
