    What have you learned from last season?

    Playing friendly games was a good way to generate income (until they nuked the amount of money you could make off it today), although it totally killed your red pack stacks due to injurys.

    The lack of action on the markets makes buying players so easy, however at the same time it makes it impossible to sell players.

    Where did you place last season?

    Finished 2nd in the league, losing the title on goal difference - annoying as I had 3 3-0 forfit wins against the worst teams in the league whilst the league winner hit 10+ each time against them and won the title by 13 goals.

    Runner up in the CL.

    Cant recall if it was the second or third round of the Cup, but didn't last long in that one.

    What's your current level?

    Level 30.

    What's your budget for this season?

    After a day of bringing new players in and selling I am currently left with the following -



    6.9B, 14,592 tokens, with 9 being held back on a notification so far.

    Who do you want to replace?

    I've done most of my business so far today. Pasztor in the photo above is a new recruit and is only a couple of cones away from Scout status. My plan is to sell Brandao (he will be listed until sold, or eventually sacked if I run out of space) and fill the squad with another ML and a MR. Currently have a ML on negs list, so if I can get him then that just leaves a MR to go. If I can get a 3rd MR in close to 6 star I will then sack/sell one of the other MRs.

    What are your goals for this season?

    Challenge for the title. A top 4 finish at very worse. Looking at the CL I am the strongest team in it, so barring troll results I expect to get to the Semi's at least. Not bothered about the cup, already lost the first leg 1-0, but playing against teams several levels better than me.

    Season began with a 2:0 home win in the cup.

    Several rosters moves so far, 2 from auction (including 1 nordgen), 1 from negotiations and 3 scouts. I'm really impressed with my new Nordgen. He got MOTM in a friendly earlier today. I normally wouldn't mention MOTM in a friendly, but he's a goalie. His form so far is 7, 7(cup), 8, 8.

    a couple of the scouts seem decent, and the other i'm not so confident about.

    The negotiation acquisition is a 31 yr old MR/AMR but got an 8 is his lone appearance (a friendly).

    L23 Team

    The team got 6 new players after spending 20 tokens on auction. That's quite incredible for my higher level team. Not sure if I was lucky or the market became easier in this season.

    I originally planned to slowly upgrade roster and use my 3* players for medium period in this season. After the upgrade progress has been accelerated, I worried if this will impact the team form. I still have two versatile 3* players in roster. At the same time, 2 new 5* players are pending to sign, but they are necessarily replacement of the 3* players.

    For cup match, the team trailed 0-1 in away match. This result was not good (no away goal) but team performance was okay. The strikers did not perform well enough.

    L15 Team


    Added 4 new players with about 5 tokens. 1 of them was free agent and has already been sold immediately. 1 of them is still pending to sign. The void of MR/AMR and ST has not yet been filled. But I believe the team has sufficient strength to handle upcoming matches.

    In first cup match, the team won 8-0 against an 1 level higher, similar in quality but "various players out of positions" team at home. I just checked and noticed that the manager has already properly set the roster and sold many around 30 year old players. But it is too late.

    I got a developer message today at login, that budgets were made better for high level managers like me. I didn't get a printscreen, has anyone got that or know what this means?

    I hate new day announcements. My first priority is to check the market, not read updates while losing players at auction.

    In Uniteds club news: Two now 1 token signings this morning

    I got that message too. Nothing seems to be changed.

    I suspect they are going to greatly increase the prize per match for league games so that friendly isn't mandatory to keep a positive balance, but we won't be sure until tomorrow's league draw.

    Yes, got the message too.

    An idea of what the changes are would be nice. Nothing on the news feed.
    Currently my level 34 teams wages are 26.4M and I am running on the bare minimum. Home game income is about 21M and away 2M so losing about 15M per day on average. No CL for me this season and the cup draw has put me in a group of level 35 and 36 teams so I cannot see me going too far in the cup. It is going to have to be a massive increase for me to balance the books.

    I got that message too, Gert - was on mobile at the time, so no screenshot either...

    EDIT: but then again, other people can do...

    If it's just an end-of-season prize money increase, how is that going to help? Take away earning potential during the season (friendlies) and when it's too late and we've all gone bust, give us extra money...
