Re: LGU Newsletter
After staying on autopilot for quite a long time ive managed to kick the dust off of LGU. At present im left with a team of wheezin' geezers! They all have done a fantastic job and somehow ive managed to promote up to IV.3

I will probably get my ass handed to me in a basket but this would mark the highest point ive ever been thus far in my hattrick gaming career.

Since the actual absence of managerial guidance the team has amassed a tidy sum of money that should now be used to draw in fresh blood, or for strategic hip replacement surgeries to keep the current lineup going strong.

I've managed to burn through a percentage already in an up and coming stadium expansion that nearly doubles seating in certain areas. It is my hope that the renovations shall encourage more LGU faithful to watch their old favorite players on the pitch.
Here's hoping i can get this team fine tuned for the greatness that is surely to come

Late reply coming eh? hehe

I cant be bothered with it either, actually the core of my issues now is i cant seem to make decent money for my trainees..and as of late ive been slacking off a bit on friendlies and the like Sad just hard to keep up with sometimes you know?
Lately ive just managed to login every so often to keep the account breathing

I know thats a bit bleak, perhaps i'll catch the bug again something serious and give her another serious go. Its rather interesting to have had a team in there for so many years.

Well in the spirit of my usual starts in mostly any game I end up doing the wrong thing first and then try to scramble later to fix things.
It seems as though these days multiskilled players are more desirable than the one trick wonders of old. In an effort to increase my chances of making decent money to improve the rest of my team I tried to kickstart my keeper program first without taking into account some decent secondary skills.
The two trainees i got ended up lacking in defense and set pieces, by such a margin in fact that the defending training would take entirely too long.
I've since dumped one of the trainees early and picked up a young kid with solid defending for reasonably cheap, and training him up from disastrous keeper.
Problem is now my two trainees are seperated in age by only around 20 days and the keeper skill difference is rather considerable (passable VS disastrous). I'll have to let go of the older more skilled one early and try to find a shiny new 17yo defender trainee to convert into a goalie, just trying to figure around when. I Figure if i wait until he pops Formidable keeper i could focus on set pieces for a bit just to bump it up a few levels so he's not completely undesirable and cash in then. That way i can also improve my offensive capabilities as well as really pump the daylights out of the younger keepers set pieces (he's weak at the moment). By then he should be skilled enough to at least take over for the older keeper, and i can get back to keeper training to boost him up to acceptable levels.

Thats the concept of the plan anyway, hopefully i'll be able to fix it. Seems to be one of the drawbacks to keeper training--having to pay to improve every other position. Its not like i can just hold onto one of my middies or forwards and lose a training spot for the sake of a more competative team. I am going to stick with it though.

Given half of the season to claw back up from the fifth position that was left to me by the previous manager LGU managed to do it. A Third place debut finish is just fine in my book, and with that a little prize money kickback to boot!

In this offseason I've managed to acquire a handful of cheap young talent to fill in the cracks presented by some of my more aging fellows on the A squad. Hopefully that will sew up the dismal situation in the LGU Defense.

So far so good with training. Both of my trainees show much promise, although they're not doing so well against the Form Monster who continues to hamper some of my best players. With set pieces being the order of the two week break its my hope that the boost will help in some of those tricky penalty situations.
According to the manager tools that I use the older of the two keepers should reach Formidable around the latter portion of next season, which will have me switch into Set Pieces training to maximize his defensive potential before letting him go a season or so early. Then to kick back into keeper training and pickup a nice 17 yo solid defender to mold into a keeper.

Things are looking up for LGU! here's hoping eh? With another manager falling out this season it just leaves me with two human opponents, should be a gravy league.
