    I don't have the app. Only view the site directly on my laptop or phone.

    I'm seeing a bunch of other news (stadium capacity increase, chairman's expectations, etc.) but nothing in relation to retiring players.

    The 1st team squad for season 3.

    Ensured I had better cover this season as my lack options on the bench did my head in. Milner will cover the whole of the defence, as although he can only play full back, if a CB gets injured I can move him RB then move Fabinho to CB. He can cover LB which was the main reason I bought him as I had no good cover for there, 91 is good for a LB. Plus MC, or play on the flank in a 4-4-2, so he'll be invaluable. Mertens drops to the bench, he can cover the front line or play in a 4-2-3-1 if a CM goes down so I can handle a couple of injuries without losing much quality now.

    On paper that looks pretty solid to me. (Watch Messi now score 5 goals for the season. :rolleyes)

    I have at least managed to add a bit more youth to the squad, it was looking pretty geriatric last season. Hopefully the likes of Pavard and De Paul get ratings increases.

    Achieved my main aim, team and bench full of 90+ players. Plenty of cover for the entire team.

    Little tweak to improve your first eleven, drop Piatek for Moutinho, put Moutinho in Pepe's att midfield slot and play Pepe up front?

    Swaps a 90 rated player with a 91 rated one.

    That's a thought - would probably go 4-3-3 in that case.

    I’d probably get Messi more in an advanced role maybe in a 4-3-3A

    Remind me, is it the SMFA Shield games where they select your team automatically, or do I need to set my lineup?

    I'll be interested to see how my team fares this season. Went all out to win the cups last season, this season I'm going for the league!

    You'll be competitive with that strong side, not quite as competitive as you woulda been if you took Messi instead of Mbappe mind you!

    Yeah I won a cup but dropped 2 points vs friggin Boca resting players for the Semi of it. Also dropped another 4 points (amazed I got draws & didn't lose both) in 2 games following the other cup, as I didn't know I had cups games I needed to rotate for. Almost got away with all that but lost the league by a point with a loss on the fianl day lol. No pissing about this season. Can't see any fixtures for the domestic cups yet...

    Oh wow I got a bye in both cups. :laugh: That's why it showed no cups fixtures for me. Nice.

    Yeah I got destroyed. I thought fitness would be better with guys in the lower 90’s after the shields but don’t know how much of an impact that made

    Condition definitely has an effect. I always play my 2nd team in the charity shield, best to start the season off fresh.

    Just realized I forgot to replace my last retired player, I'll have Ansu Fati.
