    Got nailed in the game against Andy as expected though my collapses are becoming more and more severe. My tail isn't that bad, there's a couple of mediocres and stuff in there but still get out for nothing!

    Need batsmen pronto.

    Got 3.4m now, only need a batting trainee, a decent bat and a bowling all-rounder if possible but doubt that 3.4m is going to cover all that so I may have to wait for a while for all of them. Batting is definitely the key.

    I certainly won't be handing over any of my cash until the attitude changes within BT as it's pretty poor form that things are being promised and never materialise.

    And one pop that I can see:

    Otsembor now Quality fielding.

    If I train him on 2 bat, 2 bowl, 1 fitness, 1 field for another season (when he's 18), approximately how many levels will he pick up in everything?

    much as you'd think of defending the battrick thing, it's getting hard when they let you down at every deadline they set.

    anyway poor week for me, a fielding pop for McEwan, but bowling and cons pops for Islam are way overdue

    You'd get around two and a half levels for bat, bowl, fielding, concentration and consistency each. Three full levels for stamina.


    I had these pops:

    Craig Khuliso - 19 yo, BT Rating=13,601
    RH Batsman, RM Bowler, superb batting form, superb bowling form, sublime
    A destructive player with woeful leadership skills and abysmal experience.
    Stamina: abysmal Wicket Keeping: worthless
    Batting: woeful Concentration: worthless
    Bowling: quality Consistency: mediocre
    Fielding: worthless

    His consistency is very high, but that's the end of his training as I'm listing him next week. Will see how much profit I make, I bought him for 1m, used around half a dozen nets on him to pop his stamina and bowling. Here's another of my recent buys:


    Gordon Terry - 25 yo, BT Rating=12,183
    RH Batsman, RFM Bowler, superb batting form, superb bowling form, sublime
    An attacking player with respectable leadership skills and woeful experience.
    Stamina: feeble Wicket Keeping: worthless
    Batting: superb Concentration: mediocre
    Bowling: mediocre Consistency: woeful
    Fielding: feeble

    Concentration pop was a bonus, spent 3 battng nets on him.

    That'd make him something like:

    Code:
    Stamina: 	strong	 	Wicket Keeping: 	worthless
    Batting: 	strong		Concentration: 		strong
    Bowling: 	superb	 	Consistency: 		mediocre
    Fielding: 	wonderful
    Think I could live with that for a 70k investment.

    I was expecting about three guys to pop this week, but i only got one. I think i might have mis-calcuated my training program, after i lost my USB and battrick file. Oh well pretty happt with these pops, starting to look like a very good keeper batsmen. Maybe even the 5th best on CW, then again im sure a few more then Adam, SP, Rob and that other guy have good keeper/batsmen. Also got my 5th 10k BT plus players with Jeithoon having a 10,155 BT rating now.

    I don't know why im a bit surprised that Twenty20 got canned. If it wasn't for ball-by-ball commentry and the fact that so many of you guys play it. I would considering quiting just cus im starting to get over their inability to deliver their promise. You get all excited about playing FC or Twenty20, then they can it just before its meant to start. The admin really need to wake up to themselves, you don't promise things unless you have a 80% to 90% chance of it comming through.

    Why are you training him? Surely you have younger and better players?

    Need an allrounder to fit the balance of my team he is only getting a fielding net so its not as if im chucking all my nets on him.

    He is vital in my team as he fits the 5th bowler, And the No 7 batsmen role close to Perfect as im not rich enough to get a double Proficient allrounder but Hinsh should do the job perfectly as he is Resp/Comp which is decent enough for me at the moment.
