  1. Congratulations on staying up, what an epic way to finish the season...you well and truly took it to the wire! What are your plans during the off season in terms of key areas of recruitment?
  2. The Europa League As you will now if you have been following the save closely (appreciated) we had drawn Leverkusen in the first round of the knockout stages of the UEL. These fixtures come at an awkward time of mid Febuary, given the fact that the Eliteserien season finishes in late December our team hadn't played a competitive fixture in over two months. In order to attempt to combat this and blow off the cobwebs we arranged pre, pre-season friendlies against OGC Nice (1-1), Shakhtar (0-5) and Dynamo Moscow (1-2). As you can tell the results don't make for a good read, however the
  3. @SixPointer the visuals are created using the exported FM metrics/data using Tableau I wrote an earlier post this year which guides you through how to make a squad profile. This explains the basics of Tableau which can be applied when analysing any metric. If you want to give them a go, please feel free to message me for any help. Jorgensen is still with Odds but is heavily linked with a move to Club Brugge - his first season he averaged 6.95 from 24 appearances whilst Tjaland is still with Molde U19s.
  4. What @john1 said, that is one hell of an offer! Would put you into the +£300m mark!
  5. Really keen to tap into how you develop players in relation to making changes to their personality, is this done via mentoring or am I missing something completely! This is an area of the game which I don't really utilise but am keen to develop...I only started to schedule my own training this year and can't believe how much of a difference it makes rather than relying on the Ass Man.
  6. Clearly the excitement of writing the earlier data analysis piece got the better of me as I was also supposed to include the following; Patrick Berg picked up the Fans Player of the Season and was also voted the Young Player of the Season! This come as no surprise seeing as our DLP finished the season with the leagues third best overall form (7.25), finishing behind Geelmuyden of Staebek (7.26) and Carlo Holse of Rosenborg (7.26). New signing Aron Donnum finished in fourth place with (7.24). Berg completed the 4th highest passes in the Eliteserien, highlighting the metronomes i
  7. Those results against Samp and Cagliari could be massive come the end of the season! Let's hope that 35 points is all it will take to keep you in Serie A, you most certainly will need to take all the points from Udinese! One positive is that your goal difference is pretty good, you aren't exactly leaking goals and hopefully with a bit more luck can pick up more points. Is there a trend in relation to when you are conceding?
  8. As you can see from the below draw there were a few surprises with the likes of CFR Cluj, Krasnodor who qualifying over Lille and Sparta Prague, all of which I would have preferred to draw! Then again you could say at least I avoided the likes of any of the big boys who dropped in via the UCL. Yes we certainly did it via the skin of our teeth!
  9. Season One Analysis What would any end of season analysis be without a completed squad profile! I often use these on a seasonal basis to help me identify players which I need to either tie down with long-term contracts, offer out on loan or look to move on! If we split the visual into four quadrants this will help you to aid decsision making; Bottom left - these are younger members of the squad which haven't accessed a large volume of minutes, these are players which ideally need to be loaned out as their current pathway isn't getting them sufficient experience in terms
  10. I certainly will be giving them a go, I am intrigued to see how SI integrate them into the game....the initial interview with Miles sounded like it could be 2-3 years until they are here.
  11. An excellent achievement, regardless of the outcome! You make want to take a look into Ludovic Blas (might be too expensive) or Pedro Brazao (OGC Nice) both were excellent for me across my save with Les Aiglons.
  12. As promised, the draw for the First Knockout Round of the UEL has been made and we have had ZERO luck drawing Bayer Leverkusen as our opponents. The first leg is to be played in Norway (Molde Stadium). Wish us luck!
  13. I couldn't have picked a better week to go on a 'Staycation' in the UK, the weather was glorious and Devon has many beaches to enjoy...but now I am back and in a position to provide you with an update of the action from Norway! Doing a Denmark We had two games remaining in the UEL and in all honesty initial thoughts were that a victory over either Milan away in the San Siro or away in Turkey against Besiktas would be enough to see us secure second place in the Group J. The reality was somewhat different, as you can see from the below we managed to qualify from the group with a
