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.

Improving the rewards in later rounds of the cup makes the richer (better) clubs richer and the poorer (worse) clubs poorer. I wouldn't see that as improving the game.
|Brian Beerman - November 5th 2018 14:47|
Adam, Dave...I can see your point. I always work to get as many cup games as possible each season for those reasons. Sounds like a fair answer.
What do you think about giving the D1 champion a financial or CP award, like days of old?
|Adam Meney - November 5th 2018 8:49|
Personally I feel like there is enough reward fromn the extra games and the extra coaching slots. It all mounts up. Just ask TED.
|Brian Beerman - November 5th 2018 1:56|
|Thank for the thoughts, David. A quick phone reply. Perhaps it’s worth reconsidering a reward for the D1 champion. Cash or CP seem appropriate. It’s a big accomplishment, like the cups, and I think deserves something in addition to a trophy.|
|David King - November 4th 2018 18:22|
For the reality of the game, yes it does make sense. But there is already an increased reward by having that extra coaching slot worth 25k for every extra cup game you play plus the match income.
