How? Just have a plan on excel. That way I'm not trying to reinvent the wheel every time I'm on. Of the 8 teams only two need one player each and it's not urgent... yet. Mostly it's just red card and injury team management. Mostly about 20 mins 3 times a week sometime between game days. 

G3, watch out for Sky Valley :)

I got my best finish of 10th in the championship. Been really busy at work so haven't been putting as much effort in as I could recently. Firmly confirmed myself in the championship I think.

Tried to sign an 18+ tackle/marking CB with decent stamina but couldn't get anything decent under 80mil.  Then when I looked at my stocks I had guys who were 15-17 range in those departments anyway will bank that they'll have more routine under their belt and continue to focus on developing through YA. 

Already picked up a 4.5 so that helps.

Bringing the game talk back into this thread - even though it's barely alive.

But having a shocking season so far.  In the auto relegation zone, with 1 team ahead of me and 7 points needed to overtake that team.  I think I made the mistake of selling off a couple of senior players, notably my most experienced defender.  I have this habit of selling off players hitting 30-31 years old as to get a decent return before they drop off a cliff stats wise.

Best case scenario is I get into the relegation play offs zone and try stay up.  I've made up my mind that I'll invest in a 80+mil defender even if I go down.  Might sell my first team GK who is decent as is, but my reserve keeper is about to overtake him in stats and is years younger.

My season has gone surprisingly well, especially given that I gave up and paid no attention for the first half of the season Should just miss out on the playoff spots. After selling down the YA (which had been poos for me recently) and selling off the old reserve squad I have some money to strengthen my team. The core of the squad is pretty good (some even cam through the YA), no one too old so have potential to be a top championship side for a few more seasons with some tinkering here and there. Just over brought a new striker (probably overpaid).

It was a shame to lose the reserves, there was quite a solid team building there. With a good year they could have pushed for promotion. But I didn't want to pay for Pro so they had to go. On the plus side a few of them have yielded decent transfer fees.

Well I'm heading for the drop which is disappointing as I thought I could have consolidated mid-table.  Luckily the new sponsorship model should keep the finances in check as I drop down a level.  

On the plus side, have pulled quite a few 4.5* of late including a much needed LB.  YA seem to be yeilding well but I may need to dip in the transfer market as well.

/tumbleweeds across the trophymanager game pitch.

Does anyone still actively play this?  How are your teams going?

I'm back up in Championship this season doing OK-ish (in relegation playoffs but only a few points away from safety).  

Reserve team is building nicely with a full starting + 7 subs of at least 17 rec scouted potential players.

No big transfers of late, i need to sell off a reserve GK and probably a couple of bench players who should really be starters.

I'm still around, sporadically. Another solid year in the championship, finished 8th although dropped the last couple of games and played some of the squad, wasn't going to make playoffs either up or down. Not sure if i should just keep on in this comfy zone or try gear up for a push at higher honours.

Finished last season in the relegation playoffs in Championship, guess I won it because I'm still in it.  But absolutely sharke start to the new season 3 losses to start and the opponents aren't getting easier.

My squad can't quite mix it with the top few in the group talent wise but it held up OK last season.  Change of tactics and formation will hopefully do it.

Yeah that’s why I quit. It became very same same, and they made several changes which made it impossible to catch the already established top teams. And my team had won the top division, and Cup (as well as being in several cup finals). So it’d be even more impossible for other clubs to do so.
