Since the patch is here I'm giving it another go with Everton.
Pre-season is going well so far. 3 friendlies, 2-0 with the reserves, 0-0 against Preston and 4-1 win over Osnabruck.
Players are getting over 7.00 ratings which is nice considering they were all getting 5s and low 6s.
"Every man's heart one day beats its final beat, his lungs breath their final breath. And if what that man did in his life, makes the blood pulse through the body of others, and makes them believe deeper in something larger than life, then his essence, his spirit, will be immortalised by the storytellers, by the loyalty, by the memory, of those who honour him and make whatever the man did live forever."
Really? I started over brand new after this update and I think there's improvements to the match engine, plyed some really good stuff and beat Breda 2-0. Granted there was still some awkward moments with players running into each other and backing off the ball, but the passing was better and more fluid, the opposition didn't play like Barca for once and wingers were actually beating fullbacks and getting crosses in.

Yeah, maybe that game vs Breda was a one off as I just struggled to draw 0-0 with fucking Huddersfield. Game said I had more possession and shots but the entire second half was just hihglights of them attacking in Utd style counters.
i don't like the amount of fouls in this. most games have around the 35-40 foul mark, which is ridiculous.
still, won the league with 2 games left after a 1-0 win over parma, isco coming next season, along with llorente and perin on frees, and i'll look to steal regens from places because i can. still got the champions league final with barca and the italian cup final with hellasverona to go too, so i'll be rotating with the serie a already IN DA BAG.
lamela was transfer listed, by the time i scraped some cash together he was off the transfer list. idk why, he's played 1 game and he's still unhappy. So i signed Isco instead. Also signed Adryan, and loaned out Assaidi and Henderson. Hendo had been in good form though so its a bit of a shame. then again i don't think City will buy him when his loan finishes
its much harder when you're Liverpool and those guys are on more and rated even worse.
Just had potentially the worst game vs Norwich. was up 1-0 then Dzagoev got red carded, ended up 1-1. Injuries to Skrtel, Agger, Johnson and Sahin. This is on top of injuries to Jones, Kelly, Robinson, Enrique, Carra, Gerrard and Shelvey. I have literally have no defense. Wilson + Boccheti are my only fit senior defenders. Only trouble is i Boccheti isn't eligable to play Europa and i have a game against Atletico Madrid in a few days. Going to get RAPED.
The other young players i have are either injured (McLaughlan, Sama) or out on loan (Wisdom, Flanagan) as well. fuuuuuck.
