Any way you look at it, a session with a draw and a win has to be seen as a good one.
The 0-0 draw at West Coast was a really tight match, and could have gone either way. The dismissal of one of our players did not help the final surge for respectability.
The 2-1 home win against Tricolores was a triumph for our defense. Tricolores were on the offensive more, but lacked that killer touch.
This coming session, there's a crunch game against Chuzhou - who are going well at the moment - and then a home fixture against Queens, who have been struggling a wee bit. Let's hope we can report more good stuff.

This is definately a feature to provide a squad building challenge. Planning around MPPs is difficult, especially when they begin to age. The fact that a coach has little choice but to retire them to make room for bids should itself stimulte some sales. Surely a small amount .......................

I don't see how a change to the status quo improves the game. I think it's another piece that we must account for when team building, so it adds to the game. If it's not been much of a problem the last few years, I don't see that it needs to be altered now.

If you have to downgrade I don't see how this means your ignoring the rule as you have to act to counter it.

I actually like the rule to be honest. Sort of a leveller rule that allows teams to be more or less equal in terms of ability to get these players as teams to 4-5 MP players might be put off from bidding. Alternatively, there may be more MP players on the transfer list to create room in squads.......................
