    I was going gradually through the game, but by the time I'd reached september there wasn't anything worth note, apart from a few youth caps and some pre contracts players signed with the clubs they are already at. I've decided just to holiday to the 1st update so hopefully I should be able to have an update during the city pool game tonight. Just to note I loaded all leagues in the game but a majority are on view only but if anyone wants to know how some teams are doing then feel free to ask.

    Ed Lawrence
    Lawrence Ed as he is known in Macau, scored 11 goals in 17 games, and has 6 youth caps and 5 goals, which is fuelling a lot of interest from Europe with no less than 12 clubs looking at the youngster, including Sparta Prague, Racing and PSV. Macau ended 2011 ranked 187th

    Vaikona has scored 13 times in his 22 games for his club, but has failed to find the net in 6 appearances for the Tonga youth. 17 clubs are all keeping tabs on the youngster including Bayern, PSV and Anji in Russia, who knows maybe he'll partner Eto'o upfront. Tonga ended 2011 188th

    Abdillahi Ahmed
    Djibouti youngster Ahmed scored 17 times in 25 matches for his club prompting, Le Mans of France to sign him, but he wont move til June 2013, Has yet to recieve any kind of call-up for his nation yet. Djibouti ended the year ranked 204th.

    Brock Rockhard
    27 games and 17 goals for Brock has proved to be enough for Mexican side Tigres to sign him. The move wont be til June 2013, failed to win any caps for Turks and Caicos who ended the year 199th in the Rankings

    Rocky Brittus Jr.
    Rocky has been sidelined twice for injuries in training totalling 6 weeks, but that didn't stop him averaging a goal every other game with 5 in 10 matches, has been called up to the Cook Islands youth 4 times and scored once. No clubs showing any interest at the moment, and his nation finished the year in 200th place.

    Long Tym Toon
    Toon has featured for his club, Quality Distributor, 13 times scoring 9 and has 2 goals in 6 matches for Guams youth side. Which appears to have been enough for French side Ajaccio to sign him, the transfer will go through in June 2013. Guam ended 2011 in 203rd place.

    Jim Bowman
    Bowman has scored 9 times in 11 appearances and has played 6 games for Brunei's youth scoring twice, Toulouse and Valencia are showing major interest in the player. Brunei finished in 205th place.

    Emilio do Carmo
    Emilio is considered indespensible to his club, and the 15 goals in 26 starts proves why, East Timor have given him 1 youth cap but he is yet to find the score sheet. German and French Clubs seemed to be keeping tabs on him, with Bayern and HSV being the bigger names among them. East Timor managed a rank of 202nd

    Milton Macho

    David Ginsburg
    David has scored 5 times in 15 games for Santa Coloma, and has also scored 3 goals in 7 caps for Andorra's youth side. Interest in Ginsburg is High with European giants Real Madrid and Liverpool vying for his signature. Andorra finished the year ranked 193rd.

    Sao Tome striker Watkai has scored 20 times in 25 matches for Bairros but has yet to recieve a call-up to the national setup at any level. Brazilian clubs are showing a lot of interest with Corinthians and Flamengo leading the race. Sao Tome and Principe finished the season 191st.

    Scoring goals is great and all, but the rankings slipping away is cancelling them out pretty securely

    Here's one for you all to try and work out. Brock Rockhard has yet to be capped for his country, Turks and Caicos, but he was made Vice-captain before the captain stepped down and now he is the Captain. I can't work out the managers thinking in not playing him.

    Nice, a hattrick in the only game played. AC and Bayern with interest is promising, might stall my development though.

    It certainly would have that benefit, but I doubt that I would get too much playing time, if at all so it would have that downside to it.

    I actually forgot I was signed up for this

    Looks like Matius is developing nicely, and a brilliant move to a big European club, and starting to break the first team. And Sao Tome have moved up.

    All is good

    I've holidayed to the next update, and some of the players have been in great form on the international scene. One nation has climbed to 46th in the World, and none of our players countries are sitting in the bottom spot of the rankings. But you'll have to wait to find out.

    This may be the last update I post for this as there seems to be a distinct lack of interest in it. Over 48 hours ago I posted an update that has been viewed by nearly 100 people but none chose to post, so I looked back over the thread and out of 19 people, only 8 posted more than once and of the remaining 11, 3 never posted at all. Now for 10 seasons worth of updates it averages just under 4 posts per update, and just over 1 post per day since the thread started(these figures do not include my posts). So the winner may be declared from the standings from this update.

    Sorry about not posting, just haven't seen a need to do so, but I will state that I have been reading fully and following it closely.

    You notice how mentioning the lack of interest brings all the lurkers out of the woodwork

    Not that I'm any less guilty - I've definitely not been as active as I could have been considering how often I'm hanging around CSE.

    I do apologise for the lack of activity. I've had a lot going on in real life, and when I do get spare time, It is normally used for attempting (and failing) some of the challenges.

    Your not wrong there Biscotti

    I would've thought the drastic increase in the rankings of some nations might have given people a reason to post, or even that they were stuck at clubs that were not playing them to their full potential or even playing them at all. One player is even sitting on 199 CA and I would be expecting them to be in the running for WPOTY.

    I want to complete this cause far too many of these threads don't make it past 5 seasons, so I might just continue holidaying to see how the next couple years pan out.

    I realise that this is my first comment in this game, but have been following the career of Paolo Bambino with interest and his efforts with PNG. Very pleased with his career, good if not spectacular, to be named Oceania player of year 5 times is great achievement, and now hopefully can extend that with moving to Lyon.
    Again sorry for lack of involvement, but please KUTGW

    31 in 39 is pretty good i guess, but still near the bottom, but i guess someone has to be there.
