    A couple of firsts

    Who says T11 are not working on improving the live matches?

    Three things happened for the first time in three recent games.

    1. A defender gave the ball back to the GK from about 30m out. The GK held it for a moment, then passed it (accurately) upfield.

    2. You know that moment when a midfielder leads your forward with a pass into the box and the goal is imminent, no matter how acute the angle and how problematic such shot would be in the real game? It's a great feeling when you are the attacker, kind of like the last moment before the orgasm. And a sinking feeling when you are on the receiving end, kind of like when you've hit your thumb with a hammer and it's so numb for a moment it does not yet hurt, but about to start hurting like a bitch. Well, yesterday my forward missed from this setup for the first time. I am not complaining. It's much more lifelike - provided it starts happening to my opponents, too.

    3. Just happened a minute ago while I switched to watch a live match before finishing this post. Can't call it an improvement, but definitely a first. My MC grabbed a YC. I flipped over to sub him. That is, I was going to sub another MC who was running out of steam and we were pressing high. But while on the squad screen, I noticed a YC pop up, so I moved to sub the offender, since we were also tackling hard and I didn't want to lose a player. I hit Save and the app acknowledged the sub request. Guess what? In the next instant my MC grabs a second YC.

    What do you think happened? I'll let you guess.

    @ponzu most probably something like this happened :

    AH AH — manager of Atlético Kolkata. Named in honour of my hometown club, Atlético de Kolkata, which won the inaugural edition of Indian Super League in 2014.

    A good defence is the best offense.

    While I was wondering whether there are real life analogies and how they have played out, the answer is this.

    My subbed (in) player showed up on the board right away - you know that happens every time, before the sub message pops up. He never came off. The sub message never popped up. I finished the game with 11 players on the board. There was no record of substitution in the Highlights afterwards. Go figure.

    This happened to me not quite long, I subbed a midfielder immediately he was cautioned with a card, he was replaced on the list, later given the second card and sent off, but I still had the midfielder that replaced him on the pitch. Was really lucky coz I won narrowly
