Flettner Vent

Bink. My 17 year old (how did that happen) asked me what that thingy was for. And I didn't know. That won't come as a surprise to most of you, who know that the only thing I do know a lot about is Binking. So in the interest in becoming better informed I found out. Now that I know what it is, I thou...

Re: Hattrick Season 72

Well, that was a tough weekend for England. On Friday, England (2pts behind) Denmark went to Denmark. Set up was great, we had 52% of the ball at kick off and edged the attack vs defence battle, with their weakest attack sector being in the middle and ours on the right. Unfortunately the ME had othe...

Another spokesman gave a more prosthetic excuse, claiming that this was an artificially made substitute - modelled on the man's original missing leg.

Re: Hattrick Season 72

Another win win win win to report England played Andorra. We were robbed. The match replays suggested an average 0-7 but our luck ran out and we had to rely on our set piece taker to bag a dead ball hattrick to help us to a 0-4 win. England's season will be shaped by away game results to come starti...

Re: Hattrick Season 72

Had another 100% win weekend, which was nice. On Friday, the England NT set up against Angola in a 4-3-3CA and they went 4-5-1CA despite an injury to our IMTW reducing our chances to score as well as theirs as a more defensive IM replaced him, we bagged 2 goals down that same side on 43 & 44 min...

Re: Hattrick Season 72

@Ian The only issue with controversial/nasty players is that your TS is more likely to take a hit when you buy one compared to nicer characters... I had a win-win-win-win weekend, which doesn't happen often. England were at home to Lithuania, and so we called up some players and went for m/f on a 3-...

Re: Hattrick Season 72

England were away to Czech Republic on Friday and set up well to deal with our CA even if I did correctly anticipate their attack and bolster central defence. 3-1 loss. TS is still at a disadvantage after all the other teams continued to PIC. In England, last week we were handed a walkover in the me...

Re: Hattrick Season 72

On Friday England were at home to Denmark. Their manager miscalculated how much m/f we could produce and surprised us by playing 3-4-3. We set up to deal with big side attacks as best we could, expecting a 2-5-3 and for some easy count-attack goals. England pulled divine+10 side defences, Denmark pu...

Re: Hattrick Season 72

England were away to Jordan, went 0-3 up and it finished 2-3. Nerve wracking one that. In England, I was away to the league leaders who went play creative. I was a bit surprised to have majority possession forst half, had a hail mary conversion up the middle and a quick SE to lead 0-2 at half time. ...

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 ...
