    You do, you'll be facing my 2nd team (apart from De Jong who is cup tied), need my stars fit for the cup final vs Man City in the next game.

    I have an upcoming run of 6 unmanaged teams in a row, but of course yet again a cup game falls next to a league game vs a managed side, they always do. :laugh: 1st world problems though, just the price of winning I suppose...

    Good luck against City, I should be cheering for you, your cup campaign gave me a very valuable win against you around 2 months ago...(sorry but I like to remind you...)

    Anyways, I started a new thing.

    Against unmanaged sides, I've decided to give 30 minutes each time to a now useless player that I will have to get rid out soon, as my balance is now negative...

    Do you know if that causes important problems?

    I can't see how it was 'very valuable' considering you'll finish 5th with or without that win. :laugh: It was very valuable to the 3 teams above me though. Sadly you couldn't do the same vs Newport who beat you 3-1, was hoping you'd get a result in that one!

    It was, I hadn't beaten any managed sides before you, I had only managed a dull 0-0 draw against Colchester...

    The game against Newport was hard, to be honest. Zeca, who masters the mid-field and has 8 goals and 9 assists was absent in the game. We could have scored in the first half, but we didn't and then Newport silenced us with 3 quick goals in the 2nd half...

    Narrowly beat Forrest Green 1-0...

    First time in ages that we haven't scored 3 or more against an unmanaged club, but we were still superior with 12 shots on target compared to theirs 0...

    Huge result as my reserves picked up a crucial win. No more cup games after Tuesday, should be plain sailing from here & hopefully we can finally assert our dominance on Division 5.

    Actually, I should be backing you @Ollie . If you aren't promoted by finishing 1st or 2nd, then you will certainly go up via the play-offs, so it's better for me to face Newport in the play-offs rather than you...

    True, Newport lost its place in the Top 2, Tranmere is doing very well, but they have 3 derbies for their 3 final matchdays...

    Just realized that I will have a few problems in the next season...

    Many of my players, like Casillas (who is on a break right now), Zabaleta (former City player), Fuego and Albiol might retire soon and Rooney and even Zlatan will see their ratings drop...

    Hopefully I will spent the next season in Division 4, though!

    If you don't go up then you can probably get rid of the oldies and go for a younger team as you'd still have a decent chance of promotion.

    Wow, another 6-0 away victory and a great hatrick by Zlatan, first hatrick of the season!

    Out of interest, what's your biggest win this season?

    I've got 2 6-0s, this game world is a right snorefest when we're all stuffing unmanaged sides. I don't think any of us even drops points.
