Stupid Stoke! I don't like them in real life and I'm starting to detest them now... I'm starting a petition, Let Moridin play! Anyone want to sing?

7 International caps and I still can't get a game for any of my clubs? :/

My Shaq actually got fewer games this year yet went from wanting to leave to being optimistic about his future ... not sure I understand the logic but looking at his stats he should be good enough to break into a permanent first team role soon anyway.

None of the DCs are on the board yet ... seems crazy the AI does so poorly at corners when in my own saves the DCs average a couple of dozen goals between them pretty much every year (and that's without any special corner exploits, just a DC on each post with mixed delivery).

Jimmy Kruse is doing well at Hannover. Good to see he's getting some quality first team football. He's definitely very good at getting in a lot of shots!

Really good to see how i'm developing and scoring plenty, are they from open play or penalties?

Transfers from season start

Marco Di Mata has been loaned out from Man Utd to FC Twente until the end of the season.

Edoardo Lorenzo has been transferred to Sporting (POR) from Fiorintina for 8M. He's starting regularly now.

Sercan Cali moved from Juventus to Sampdoria for 5.25M and is now an important first team player.

Gypsum Fantastic moved from West Ham to Blackpool for 3.4M and is indispensable to the club.

Jake Stothard is on loan from Aston Villa to Napoli until the end of the season. Isn't appearing much but playing some.

Rocky Brittus IV moved on loan from Man. Utd to Dortmund and is playing quite a bit.

Mike Nevo is on loan from Chelsea to Stuttgart and is seeing regular first team action.

Dench Frimpong completed his move to Palermo on a free transfer, he is listed for loan and hasn't played yet.

Unhappy players

Charlie Anh is still at Lazio and still not seeing very much action. He wants to leave the club, has announced that he wants first team playing time and is considering his options.

Helge Blendet is considering his options at Man. City and wants first team playing time.

Greg Johnston is at Liverpool but wants to leave the club and has announced that he wants first team playing time. Is considering his options. Had one sub. appearance.

Arawn Moridin is looking forward to leaving Stoke. He wants first team playing time and is considering his options. He is transfer listed by request.

Mark Brown wants to leave Man Utd, wants first team playing time and is considering his options.

Players under transfer bids

John Crane is considering a loan offer from Genk and is loan listed at Liverpool.

James Sawyer has accepted a transfer bid from SLB in Portugal and will be joining them today.

Overall, now that the guys are 20 years old, they're getting more and more playing time and the goals are starting to come in for more players. Only 4 players haven't scored yet.

2 goals is good for Cali considering he had only 3 shots on goal. I guess Sampdoria is not the ideal team at the moment to get into goal scoring positions for a winger :(

Helge still with City :(

At least 7(8) apps and an amazing amount of shots (6) combined with a Messi-like rating of 6.45...

Hurray, 22 appearances. Now I can stop moaning about not being played and start concentrating on being the next ...erm... (at this point I tried to find out if Lazio had had any famous right-wingers and ended up embroiled in an argument about racism!).

For each player I will post their attributes as of June 1st, 2016 and then I will link to images for their landmark achievements, awards and biography pages.

My players attributes look very good indeed, possibly already close to the PA, probably need to move from Fulham to a bigger club to help get more goals. Could also do with improving my penalties a bit, have i actually taken any?

If you look at your attributes page, it shows the penalties between goals and assists as: Penalties taken(Penalties scored). For instance, Simon Leigh has 1(1) so he made one out of one attempts but Rocky Bruttus IV has 2(1) so he had two chances and made one of them.

I saw that for the current season - i meant over the players entire career, i scored a lot in youth football at the start of the game so i assume i did at that level.

Is it just that Fulham have a good penalty taker, clearly Villa don't looking at Goldsmith and Leigh

I don't see career penalties being tracked in FM. The only historical data tracked is team, divsion, apps, goals, asists, MoMand Avg rating. If you can point me where to look, I'll look at it for you. I have put stats up for every season though so you should be able to look up your own players history at this point.

Gypsum won the League cup with Blackpool... nice! Seems like he's settled in there, shame his technical attributes aren't coming on as well as his mental.

I simply don't understand how I'm not getting a game. 11 caps for Scotland; very good physical stats (my determination has dropped from 15 to 12 unfortunately) and my technical ability on the ball is solid.

Who is the short sighted manager of Liverpool in this game!!!! :p

Between the club and international Shaq is at well over 100 appearances for his solitary goal ... oh well with 27 caps already at age 20 he's got to be on course to break the USA caps record, even if he can't score goals to save himself.

Jimmy Kruse has really developed into quite an attacking threat. Getting named in the German First Division Team of the Week just about every other week and picking up a few big awards must be making other teams aware of his quality. It's also good to see that he's broken into the Australian team this year and played very well for them. The future looks bright!

KUTGW Rabbit! This is a great thread :)

Glad you all are enjoying the thread. I'm trying to keep it interesting instead of just "HERE R TEH GOLS!". I'm as interested in how the AI/game engine works and players develop so I'm enjoying running it as well.

Transfers from season start

Helge Blendet moved from Man City to Schalke on loan until the end of the season.

Mark Brown moved on loan from Man Utd. to FC Twente until the end of the season.

Marco Di Mata moved on loan from Man Utd. to join Justin Collins at Valencia until the end of the season.

Jonas Dockx transferred to Olympique Lyonnais from Liverpool for 14.25M (wow)

Edoardo Lorenzo transferred from Sporting (POR) to Inter for 18M (double wow)

Vincent van Coconut has stepped up to the big time and transferred from Tottenham to Barcelona for a whopping 20M. (and is playing regularly).

Eighteen Rabbit took a free transfer from Napoli and joined ESTAC Troyes (and actually started playing and scoring for a change)

Unhappy players

Mike Nevo is unhappy at Chelsea, he's playing just not every game. Wants to leave the club and has requested a transfer publicly though he is not yet transfer listed.

Greg Johnston is unhappy at Liverpool with only one league app. He wants more first team play time and is considering his options.

Other things of note

Justin Collins has attracted the interest of Arsenal who is considering picking him up when his contract with Valencia expires.

Arawn Moridin, Jake Stothard and John Crane are all hanging out in the reserves for their teams

If I am not mistaken Cali's goal total should say 16, not 5 :)
