My scouting for players entering the final 6 months of their contracts yielded a few good results, after weeding out the players positions I needed, I made formal approaches for the players above.
No need to negotiate with the club as any player within the last 6 months of his contract is free to negotiate a pre-contract deal with another club, I took advantage of this by not having to pay huge transfer fees, I was able to offer the players I wanted lucrative deals to persuade them that Nottingham is the place to be.
Skriniar, a 92 rated CB from Inter joins on a 180k p/w salary and a 3 year deal, Neres, a very pacey winger from Chelsea was signed on a 4 year deal worth 150k p/w and Jan Oblak, a superb keeper joined on a 2 year deal for 160k p/w.
I have also instructed my scouts to find world-class players from Argentina, England, Spain and Italy who are due to retire this season, in the hope of unearthing their regens, FIFA regens work totally different from PES whereby the famous name just reincarnates as a younger version of themselves, more on this process later in the post.
Winning our Europa League group has earned us a last 32 fixture away first leg to FC Copenhagen, a relatively unknown entity, should be an interesting match.
We also have an upcoming Carabao Cup Semi final, and a 3rd round FA Cup tie with Brighton, the squad is being stretched, often having to field a few fringe players in ‘lesser’ games to rest some of the big names, a tactic that backfired 2 matches ago after fielding a weaker side against Brighton, only to be beat 2-0.
The Dec-Jan ‘fuckery’ window has so far, with the exception of the Brighton game, been tamed this season, we are playing well and even when we don’t, we often nick a 1-0 win, the sign of potential champions.
Dennis had a barren 4 match spell but has picked up again and is once again prolific, it’s great to have his pace up top as an outlet when our usual precise passing style is being smothered out by packed defenses, demonstrated here against Liverpool in a tight match which we won 1-0 thanks to an over-the-top out ball which Dennis latched on to:
It’s been a while since scored a ‘non team goal’ so this rasper from CB Denswill from around 22 yards was a nice surprise, surprise in that when I hit it, seeing who was shooting I expected a row Z effort, but this was a peach:
Season 8 rolls on, and its shaping up to potentially be the season that title challenge breakthrough occurs, that ‘click’ in any footy gaming career mode whereby your team and your abilities reach a level where you are confident in every game, I’m about there now, 8 seasons in, and its been a most enjoyable journey getting here, now to push on and make it happen, I’d love to retire from FIFA 19 whenever that point comes having won a Premier league title and a Europa League cup.
