Re: Hattrick Season 72

Argh! Nightmare start to this week... For some reason I thought Q1 started a week on Friday. As a result I've missed the TS reset and England now have a horrendous TS disadvantage compared to the other teams in the group. In England we won 4-0, The Chauffeur getting and converting a powerful pressed...

Re: Hattrick Season 72

The election went well, and I'm still the England NT manager. In England, sfter 31 straight losses in the league I have arrived in my old V.7 after a quick series swap. I was up against one of the weakest 4 teams (which includes mine and a bot) and away from home. We had the edge on ratings initiall...

Re: Hattrick Season 72

Team England- average age of players is 28/78 although I have 12 under 23 and 11 over 37. The key forward trainees are all under 20, so I'm in no rush to do anything about it. Oceania - average age of players is 26/80 with the wing-back trainees just turning 24. Again, I'm in no rush to do anything...

Re: Hattrick Season 71

I'd be interested to know what that Divine+1 xp player sells for. There's nothing wrong with the route you are proposing of course, and in SA I'm getting good results against bots in Div IV which rather pushes the need to make the most of the crowd income. I upgraded to 26k mid season and 3 home gam...

Re: Hattrick Season 71

Hi Donut. I'd suggest considering not upgrading to a solid coach, and focusing upon expanding the stadium. I started my 3rd team in SA 2 seasons ago, and skipped the solid to go straight to an excellent coach, funded primarily by the sale of one trainee and the profits from crowd income. I also went...

Re: Hattrick Season 71

Missed doing an update last week, with a trip to the Isle of Wight disrupting my normal routines, but you didn't miss much... The England team has been rotating younger age groups in from my spreadsheets of players. I thought I'd rebuild some 3-4-3 xp, as it serves as a good threat/insurance against...

Re: Hattrick Season 71

Not much to report on the England NT front, although doing this post reminded me that I needed to accept a friendly challenge for this week. I'd held back from selecting players from the current age groups until the Cup Final was over, and last night it was won by a team training our 4 best normal I...

Re: Hattrick Season 71

Friendly for England, I quite enjoy having the freedom to pick players from the different age groups between now and the end of season for experience, and adding to formation xp is the only constraint I have to worry about. My English team was away to 1st. Lost 7-0 but the downer was a career ending...

Re: Hattrick Season 71

Q2 of the World Cup was a really tough ask. We faced the 2nd highest ratings in R1 from Iran, then were MoTsed by Luxembourg (and we were unlucky not to win) and then on Friday we faced Austria who posted the highest hatstats of anyone in Q2. Tough gig, and although it didn't help that I didn't set ...

Re: Hattrick Season 71

On Friday England faced the 2nd highest hatstats rating on the opening day of Q1 and although we gave up a 2-0 lead, their second goal coming from a 35% (or 6%ish chance for conversion) central attack, but we did at least get a point. At the weekend the NT squad had 2 injuries, necessitating 4 call ...

Re: Hattrick Season 71

No game for England on Friday, but we lost a solid form IM to injury +1 this weekend. The key to Q2 for me is form. Here's the state on lay on that with one form update to come. GK in squad - passable (dropped from solid) outside we have a 35y/o in excellent and he'd need to be stamina subbed by our...

Re: Invalid thank

I've now had a notification I've not seen before. Removed Thank from *a fellow Lemon Fool* for the post "Invalid thank". Obviously, I'd also received a thank before the thank was removed, so I'd like to thank my fellow Lemon for testing that both his/her own thank and remove thank mechanis...

Re: Invalid thank

Yes, thought it might be regarded as churlish to request people test the validity or otherwise of their thank on my post.

I suppose I could offer a reciprocal thank?

Hi I was trying to click the thumb-up- to-thank icon on a post, and it came up with this reply... Invalid thank I had previous tried to 'valid thank' it, but doing so had re-directed to another post in the thread that I'd already 'valid thanked'. I'm also curious about the choice of works for the er...

Re: Hattrick Season 71

The game against Poland on Friday was England's first loss in awhile and we lost 1-0. We had majority possession and they were playing 3-4-3 but it was our poor defence/attack ratings that really did the damage. No game this week to reduce injury risk, although our SP taker picked up a +1 at the wee...

I (oh yes, I got through to the next round of the consolation cup, sorry, the Conspirator's Memorial Cup (what?) If you check your match report for week 12 of s70 (last season), you'll see that a minute's silence and then applause was held for Conspirator before kick off. Conspirator was the opposi...

Re: Hattrick Season 71

England were playing Slovenia on Friday, the last game in the group stage of the EHF friendly tournament. I set up with the best fit formation for the players in the skeleton squad, a 3-5-2 with a DF and 2xWTM and an OCD, and bagged a magnificent m/f rating, with enough attack in all sectors (100% ...

Re: Hattrick Season 71

Couple of weeks to catch up on. The England National Team has entered a friendly Euros tournament. We got drawn with Slovakia, Slovenia & Serbia which is enough to make you dyslexic if you are not already. Next week we're playing Slorvia if you know what I mean? The plan is to build formation ex...
