A session full of league business, and only league business, was what we needed to get back on track. We won't be threatening a top three finish, but we might continue to threaten mid table mediocrity!
We started with a 1-0 home win against West Coast. Hans Ingot's 80th minute red card meant they had ten minutes to defend with ten men for a 0-0 draw, but Koltanowski put an end to that dream.
After that an unexpected, but thoroughly enjoyable -0 away win at Tricolores. Sutovsky's 64th minute conversion of a disputed penalty was the highlight of the game. Tricolores slipped from second place after that defeat, down to fourth. They will not be happy.
Next session, another full bag of league challenges. Chuzhou at home and Queens away. Chuzhou are as erratic as we have been, but hopefully home advantage will see us get the points. Queens also had a double winning session, so will be hoping to extend their run. Another tricky challenge.
Meantime, the team is progressing well. Where to spend those remaining CPs?

|Allow Swansong on Special Ability Player|
|Adam Meney - August 21st 2018 0:39|
For me the swansong ability is one that needs to be planned in advance. If you think a player will be given a swansong in the future then dont give him an ability in the seasons leading up to it.
For me its a straight nope.
|Stewart Miller - February 26th 2018 11:50|
I agree with Willy, but there again I might have something to gain if the motion is adopted when "Wee Mav" becomes Age 6. However, I think if was not adopted then I'd more than likely have another suitable candidate within my squad to be allocated a 'Swansong'........................
|Willy Krosnyak - February 19th 2018 15:44|
I think it is okay to apply to any player, remember that the swansong is retiring so you are going to lose that player after the season.
|Mike Parnaby - February 16th 2018 16:45|
For me, no. Leave the swansong for a normal player to get one last season.
|Brian Beerman - February 16th 2018 13:06|
|Per the poll, this is a forum to discuss and debate the idea to allow Swansong to be applied to a player with a previously assigned Special Ability. My idea is that Swansong cannot be applied to a player if they received an Ability in the same season, e.g. cannot add Swansong and Maverick in the sam.......................|
