  1. I would have found it really hard to commit to leaving a club before I knew whether I'd brought them up or not. Can't imagine they wouldn't turn professional if you went up either, but I do see the worry about getting clobbered a league up. Also I suppose you are trying not to get too attached to any one club, and if you got Fribourg promoted that might start to feel like A Project that might derail your larger aims.
  2. Players will still train their weaker foot, but you can't give them specific instructions to do it. IIRC, any session that includes training on Technique can have some effect on developing the weaker foot.
  3. That must have been incredibly nerve-wracking. What a way to win it though!
  4. For Aguero, I think it's the physicals and the extra couple points of Off the Ball and Technique that make him the superior in-game goalscorer, so I'm generally in agreement with you. The high Dribbling also probably helps Aguero get into better positions to score in-game and lose the ball less. Any role in game that asks Kane to dribble is not going to turn out particularly well, with his (relatively) mediocre Dribbling, Agility, and Balance. It'll be interesting to see what changes, if any, the Spurs researcher makes for Kane. I know Son's been tuned upwards for FM21, which I think is f
  5. Squeaky bum time indeed. Good luck! Also, love that there's an M. Nobile among the goalscorers for West Ham against Fulham last matchweek. Hopefully his first name is Marco.
  6. Depends how much room he really has between his CA and his PA. If he's really a proper 3.5/4 star player, you could easily see his Passing, Vision, and Technique all increase by 4 at least. First Touch probably always likely to be a little lower of course. Also got quite good Decisions for a 16-year-old.
  7. I know your quick-and-dirty way of assessing a goalkeeper is to look at the top three numbers on the left, but my way is actually to look at Positioning, Reflexes, and One on Ones. By that measure, Akoro is appreciably ahead of Best (13-15-13 to 13-13-11). He's also got significantly better Handling. They're pretty close on mentals, though Best edges it there by virtue of his superior Composure, and on physicals, although Best has the Agility edge. I'd probably swap them and play Akoro over Best right now, especially if Akoro is the one with the future with the club.
  8. Wow. Birmingham shipped 100 goals? Tremendous. Although I note you're not too far off that with 90, and there's two other clubs letting in more than 90. What a league.
  9. What a fee for an MLS club! Just about double the existing record for an incoming transfer.
  10. If you get promoted this year (fingers crossed) and can wait to make the sales until you're in the Championship, those player values should pop with the increase in league and club rep too, which'll be helpful.
  11. Speaking just for myself, if I were doing this sort of save, I would feel fine re-signing him once I was pretty sure he was done developing (say 25 or 26). You're not really gaining an advantage by knowing his PA if he's already hit it.
  12. Based on that review of your defenders, I'd be sorely tempted to get rid of a couple of the older players on high salaries and give the kids more time next season. Grandini and Novelli definitely aren't all that you want, especially in positioning/marking/tackling, but they also aren't costing you 45k p/w, and maybe they have some room to grow.
  13. Good stuff. Turned it around really nicely from the beginning of the season. Are you looking to stay at Sampdoria for the coming season, or could you be tempted away? And if we assume you're staying, what are your thoughts about the squad for next year?
  14. Away to Man City should be a decent chunk of cash at least, which you don't need as much as you did before but must be welcome all the same.
  15. He certainly is really good. From the POV of an absolutely top club, besides his jumping reach, his decisions, speed, and composure are all a little lower than what they can probably get elsewhere, which might explain why he's headed to Brighton. There's also the fact that you only have the English leagues loaded, which means that all the rest have less activity. And I suppose there's also the possibility that he doesn't have much more potential for growth left. Not that you care about any of that, of course, since you're rolling in it!
