My plan, as it stands right now, is to try to find some forwards/high shooting mids with strong defensive ratings on top of those. And this is just season one. I'll certainly be looking to improve upon what I've got, though I'm not at all disappointed in my front line right now. And, as it sits right now, six games into the season, that 59 oa is actually my leading scorer. He also happens to be coming off of a 25 goal season last year. I pay more attention to shooting and dribbling ratings than overall. In fact, on one of my other teams, one of the best scorers I have is currently a 57 oa, and, even though he's only 22, I don't project him much higher than 60 oa, but I do plan on starting to play him in my important games once he's developed due mostly to his shooting rating which is already at 93 and, with any luck, should get to 100 by the time he's done playing. Overall rating is not the end-all-be-all for a good player, in my experience.
I'll likely give it a few seasons and if it isn't getting me results by season eight or nine, I'll probably go to a more straight-forward strategy, but this isn't faring too badly so far. I'm out of the gate at 2-2-2 and in 11th place, which is about what I expect from a beginning team. I currently sit tied for third in the league with 17 goals for, but the fact that I have a back line filled with my beginning players is, as you'd expect, crippling. We've given up 21 goals, only three teams have given up more. The 55 oa and 49 oa were both accidental signings, I don't even know why I had bids out on them, but it is what it is. And I'm in World 79 with your VCF team, I'm in Israel. I remember Markus Fanger consistently tearing it up, piling up huge goal numbers for you back in the day. I was a bit disappointed to see you hadn't resigned him, but with a contract that high, I couldn't blame you. I might have to take you up on that offer once I can get this team to a place where it can be successful. Mostly, I just want to try this to do something different. I love FCD, but the same builds get kind of stale after a while. I wanted a new challenge.
