    There were about 5 tanker teams and a few +1 Level teams
    So if I attained top 4 position - that will be a achievement
    I had that kind of draw last season as well. Its like the game engine gives us a tougher draw every 3 to 5 seasons! This season is back to normal for me and i do nothing differently. 2nd best team is 10 percent below my quality so expecting an easy league this time around. Cup and CL look better than last season. All in all, it's gonna be a less stressful season for me

    A WTF? moment or two for Nouvion FC, a red card in each of the first two matches against a -39%Q opponent. The Management hopes Nordeus has got that out of its system now and leaves his players alone for a while...

    I actually think you are lucky. Get them now when its painless rather than later in the season where it really matters. Now i am assuming **** happens only once, keep us posted in you have further reds. 2 reds in 2 cup rounds is already really extreme. I go through most seasons without even 1 red.

    I am developing a new theory of $10m. Add $10m to the value of the most expensive scout in your scout list and the result falls into the value range of 18yr old fast trainers.
    Since my teams are in lower levels 9 - 11, it corresponds very well.
    I don't know if you Kaskada can check and confirm if my theory is applicable in higher levels.

    The two reds are an unusual occurrence for me, too. I went for a long run where I didn't get a straight red at all in any season, and only one or two double yellows. In the past couple of seasons I've got two straight reds and a blizzard of yellows for my midfield players (MC or DMC), whichever ones are there, so it seems the match engine is targetting the position, not the individual player...

    Yup, i noticed my ball winning positions getting more yellows in recent seasons too. But with 2 reds in 2 cup matches, conspiracy theories come to mind. Haha cant help it. What Nebu mentioned i have also experienced. In one season, i had a DMC that got 2 reds. But his next season was back to normal, a few yellows but no reds.

    I used to have this MC, plays well but was always picking cards, then one day I noticed he has high numbers in aggression - it may have been the highest in the team then.

    Aggression isn't a white skill for MCs so whatever training regime you give them it will be depreciated over time. My MCs don't have particularly high aggression % compared to those players who have it as a white skill and are higher than the MCs and don't get yellows/reds on any level of the frequency of those unforunate MCs.

    I try to attend all my matches, and when players get yellow cards I leave them on the pitch for a while. If they foul again but get a referee lecture or other let off then I'll sub them off. Occasionally they'll get a quick second yellow and thus red, but it's a small risk and you can't really do anything about that. After about 20 minutes or so I'll sub the yellow card holder anyway, and it's amazing the number of times that later in the match the substitute that has come on will also get a yellow card...

    Nouvion FC have just picked up a cheap spare MC from the Transfer Market as cover for the midfield positions. There are two players suspended for the next Cup match the 2nd best MC and a lower-Q DC who has already got a higher-Q replacement on the books but would have made a very useful bench player. In the League match this morning the red-carded MC got injured for 4 days so the MC hazard is getting bigger...
