  1. Hi, In the holiday pop-up window, it would be great to be able to set team selection guidelines for your assistant manager in the same way as you can when asking him to 'Quick Pick' the team in the Squad page. Now you can only choose to play with the selected tactic or selected team, but being able to add in things like condition/fitness, minutes played in last match etc. - like you already can in Quick Pick - would save on having to return from holiday every match to rotate effectively.
  2. Interesting, good luck!
  3. I hope you walked into the post match conference with a cigar.

    Unbelievable end to the season!
  5. Jobs 3, matches 7... By your 18th job you'll have managed a whole season!
  6. Some amazing team names in that league Are Strykers II your B team? Weird that they're in the same league.

    [FM18] Road to 1,000 Goals: Life of a Striker

    Enjoying following this, kutgw! How do you set up tactically?
  8. As someone who doesn't follow the MLS and doesn't know how it should work, there hasn't been anything game breaking other than an annoying lack of cash movement of players between MLS teams. It seems like when you offer a player out everyone holds off in the hope that you just release them in the waiver instead. So most player departures have been to the NASL or USL, or then to Europe/South America.
  9. MLS Superdraft 2022 We only bring in 5 new players this time round, and it's probably the most promising Superdraft pick we've had in recent years. Previous editions have been more about quantity than quality, but now we have a strong squad and I'm only really looking for players who can come in to fill gaps.

    Haha, @oriole01 will be happy to see Wagner's fall from grace. Thompson-Hull looks brilliant.
  11. December Waiver Draft 2021 We prepare for a potential exodus in January by bringing in a couple of players in this draft. They have some decent attributes but don't look like world-beaters. We're going to need to see some development from them or they'll just go to Whitecaps 2 and run down their contracts. It's possible we don't need them at all, but I think that's wishful thinking. Youth Intake Day! Some decent prospects. A few players will leave the academy as you can see, as they didn't merit signing a deal with the first team. Several players have signed though and will spend next year at Whitecaps 2 to continue their development.
  12. Season Review 2021 - Part 3 We were drawn against Cascadia rivals Portland in the final, with the winners of the tie going through to the MLS Cup to play either Atlanta United or New York City. Liam Henderson scored his 8th goal from midfield since joining only a few months ago to earn us a drawn in the first leg. And then scored his 9th to secure the win and a place in the MLS Cup final. The match also meant that we break records: Rematch. Last seasons' final between the same two teams ended 1-0 to Atlanta after they ran us off the park. A brilliant performance from the lads, despite losing two late goals to that man Mandzukic, means we lift the MLS trophy for the first time in our 5th season at the club! It's the first time in the club's history that they have lifted the trophy after reaching the final for the first time last season. We've broken more records: And to top it off, we've won some awards. It's going to be incredibly difficult to keep the team together for next season. Sammy Howell, George Byers and Danny Lisch all want new contracts that would push them into the Designated Player bracket, so we have a decision to make about whether to let any of Lewis Morgan, Liam Henderson or Matias Laba leave the club in order to keep Byers, Howell and Lisch. It may well be that we lose several key plays in January. Rangers have their eye on Yordy Reyna, with a rumoured £3.8m bid on the cards. I'd be happy to let him leave the club as despite some good performances this season he's overpaid for his ability. Tim Parker, Paul Hill, José Alejandro Guadarrama, Pat Doughty, Ian Marples, Henry Smith and Sean Hayes are also attracting attention. Scotland We lost to Croatia in the first meeting between the sides before earning a draw against them at Hampden Park. Their record of 9 wins and 1 draw from 10 games means they came first in the group and qualified for the World Cup. We, on the other hand, would have had the same record were it not for a bore draw away to Austria. That means we come second in the group, and fortunately nick one of the Second Placed spots. We're going to Australia 2022! (No Qatar, quelle surprise). Our group in the World Cup? *Insert crazy laugh here* Scotland versus England in the World Cup Group Stage. Muahahahaa! We are also going to have a rematch against Mexico, who were the only side we beat at Russia 2018.
  13. Season Update 2021 - Part 2 I forgot to post the league table... I also realised that when I thought we were ahead by games won (the first sorting rule in MLS), I was accidentally looking at Portland's record. We had the exact same record of W-D-L as Atlanta and our goal difference going into the final match was all that kept us top of the table. Two goals won us the title In the Wild Card, LAFC completed a remarkable rise in fortunes since joining the league a few years ago and they've earned a Semi Final place against us. Their league finishes in the Supporters' Shield have been 23rd, 22nd, 19th and 9th, and they look to be seriously on the up. We're undefeated in our last 7 matches against them though, so I'm pretty confident of a place in the final. Two narrow wins by the same scoreline over LAFC. We dominated the second leg and should have been much better than the 2-2 scoreline. Danny Lisch popped up with a winner in the last few minutes and is now demanding a 500% wage rise. Dick. We've been drawn against Portland in the final, with the winner qualifying for the MLS Cup. Before that though, we have the small matter of our final two World Cup qualifying matches with Scotland.
  14. Season Review 2021 We gained 6 points more than last season but Atlanta, who earned 12 points more than last years' total, pushed us really, really hard. We had an unbelievable unbeaten run through to the end of the season, where dropped points to FC Dallas and Sporting Kansas City meant we went into the final game of the season equal on points with Atlanta United, with us sitting in 1st place thanks to our Games Won record. If we won our final match against Minnesota, we would lift the Supporters' Shield for the second season in a row. We did it! An absolutely unbelievable season sees us lift the Supporters' Shield in consecutive years. Atlanta United are pushing hard though, and their vast improvement this year is a warning for next season. We also lifted the Canadian Championship trophy in a 4-1 aggregate victory over Montreal Impact, which means we'll be Canada's representatives in continental competition again. We were drawn against Toronto for the 5th season in a row, surely this is a bug?
