The Hatters have slid right up the EFL Championship ladder, after a superb run of 8 wins and 4 draws, with only 3 matches left to play, one more win would secure a Play-off spot, something thought impossible earlier in the season when we were cemented to the foot of the table.
Kazenga Lua Lua has maintained his prolific scoring rate, and is on course to be the league’s top scorer, players have developed and fully adapted to the style I wanted to impart on the team, injuries have returned to fitness and out overall match sharpness has improved greatly through training and development plans, all amounting to a much more consistent run of performances, and much tighter defensive displays.
I’m still playing on World Class, with tweaked OS Slider settings, the settings all geared up to making the game more difficult, not easier, but I have had a 7-0 win and more recently a 10-0 win away at Preston NE, my biggest win ever in any FIFA game, some games feel quite easy now, others more of a struggle, will be interesting to see if we make the play-offs, and if we was to get promoted, how the Premier League difficulty would fare, there’s always the option of Legendary.
Transfers are still an issue, we need to strengthen the squad, and reinforce several positions with backup, but funds are still ridiculously low, my budget is approx £1m and a £20k salary budget, no chance of signing anyone, and the scouting free transfers in January doesn’t seem to work, so have been focusing on developing youth players. One such player to come through the ranks is left Midfielder, Leleivre, who has been a first team regular this season, and has pace to burn, he has also chipped in with 6 goals, a few other promising high potential youths have been signed to the academy, and development plans put in place to boost their growth.
I’m hoping a decent placed finish , the league reward money and loyalty payments at the end of the season bolster the coffers by a few quid, trying to develop a club into a side good enough to compete at the top level is extremely difficult on such a small limited budget, any Arab billionaire businessman out there fancy a stake in the mighty Luton Town FC? It’s a lovely place to live too 😉
Our fans are desperate to see us back in the big time, playing in the Premier League, so will post updates in the comments section throughout the week, as my next play session will determine our play-off fate, so will keep you updated in comments, rather than waiting a full week.
Just a few goals from the latest few sessions of play, still awaiting that elusive long range goal in FIFA 21.
