    Hmmmmm, next cup game is going to be a close one. They should probably beat me, but IF I play GFI I'm in with a real chance.

    Looking at my next cup opponent, last season they were getting strong-comp resp-superb and this season they havent been getting anything like that, so i assume they're resting players, and will pull out all the big guns against me, so ill have to play full strength i reckon. Even looking at his squad, he has no real guns, so ill just full strength TIE.

    EDIT: Wow, his PFL's are shot, that could be why he isnt getting good ratings. Will check over the week and re asses after OD

    In Work on a Sunday, thanks to the shower of **** which laughingly refers to itself as the Welsh Rugby team, and the resultant Night of the Long Knives!


    Anyway, in between the chaos, got to watch my 2nd Round Cup victory, and pulled a future star!

    Cup first:
    P4L07 107 A/O, Wilde 6/27 (PB), Crick 2/5, Manzini 1/31, Bent 1/29
    Cymru Gurgitaters 110/2 (23) Staveley 47*, Mohammed 45*

    Basically, the only three first teamers who played did the job, though there were some decent enough support play from the back-up players.

    Now to the YP, and the training Dilemma!

    Dirk Katleho (1578939)
    RH Batsman, RF Bowler, respectable batting form, respectable bowling form, changeable
    A cautious player with strong leadership skills and abysmal experience.
    Plays For: Cymru Gurgitaters
    Nationality: England
    Age: 17 Years Old
    Battrick Rating: 6,297
    Wages: 878 p/w
    Stamina: respectable(8) Wicket Keeping: abysmal
    Batting: woeful(5) Concentration: abysmal(2)
    Bowling: respectable(10) Consistency: feeble(8)
    Fielding: woeful(2)

    Definitely want to keep and train, he's RF, good Stamina, not bottom Resp, though admittedly not V.High either, but generally he's a pretty good starting point for a trainee.

    Here's my other trainnees.

    Greening, 23YO, Exc/Sup Bat (2X Batting)
    Staveley, 24YO, Rem/Qual Bat (1X Batting)
    Jeffery, 25YO, Strong/Prof bat, Strong/Strong LHS (1X Bowl)
    Noon, 23YO, Sup/Exc Bat, Qual WK (1X Bat, 1X WK)
    Akhtar, 18YO, Strong/Comp Bat, (2X Bat)
    Bewers, 23YO, Rem/Qual LM, (1X Bowl)
    Wilde, 20YO, Qual/Resp RM, (1X Bowl)

    And I have Staton, 17yo, Resp/Woe Bat, Feeb Stam, WK and Field, who's not yet getting anything, as I'm minded to flog him.

    Any thoughts? Jeffery's net is the obvious sacrifice, and I suppose I could call it a day on Staveley when he hits Wond in the next few weeks? Or should I sell both the 17YOs and rake in the cash?

    Cheers, Trev

    I don't think you should be training Jeffery, the second batting net on Greening is a bit of a waste (a fielding net would be more useful if you want to give him two nets) and Akhtar's second net could probably be used better elsewhere as well. Dunno what your players' stamina levels are like but I'm sure you could use at least one fitness net. Anyway, if you look at those three and stop training Staveley when he pops there's plenty of room for you to fit in a trainee.

    Cheers Ad, as a short-term measure I'm giving Jeffery's bowling net to Katleho, and I'll look at it again when I get the pops I'm expecting.

    I've got a kind'a emotional attachment to Staveley, much like you and Cuss, as he was my first ever semi-decent player. But I think that at 24yo, Wond is realistically as far as he's going to go.

    In the next few weeks I should get: Greening to Sens Bat, Staveley Wond Bat, Noon Qual Bat, Bewers Wond Bowl.

    You're right about Greening's 2nd batting net, I was just trying to tank up on primaries while he was young enough, and as soon as he has his next pop, I'll change it to a fielding net, as Sup Conc isn't really good enough for a player of his ability.

    Interested that you suggest sacking Akhtar's second net, rather than pulling Bewers' net? Akhtar is better than Greening and Staveley were at his age, so I'm kind'a committed to him, and I again thought that stacking up on primaries while he was young enough was the way forward - Especially considering that Med Stam and Comp Conc isn't horrible for an 18yo, even if it isn't great?

    I don't really want to pull Bewers' net, as he's my best bowler, but at 23yo, I reckon he's only going to make it to say Exc/Exc at best, so perhaps I should consider biting the bullet now if something better comes along?

    But you agree that Staton (The 17yo Resp/Woe Bat), isn't going to be any better than what I've already got, so I should sell up and sit on the money?

    Tar Ad, Trev

    Anyone else getting this? Hope it somehow leads to some sort of triple training bug

    Hmm. This sounds like the sort of thing that leads to lost games and whathaveyou. Could be messy. Will be annoyed if I miss out on a player I'm planning to bid on this evening, especially if he goes for a bargain price...

    Won my cup game pretty comfortably. Attempts to take the load off key players didn't work, as Bromby scored all the runs and Oleary took all the wickets. Really need an easy game or two to start properly resting players.

    Yep, I'm getting it too, rather annoying, as I was hoping to stick Staton on the TM before going home.

    I can't get on either. Really annoying as I've been out all day and want to check on my game, even if it is only a friendly.

    Finally got it to list Staton before I get out of here. Though, looking at the TM, I think 1.4M might be a bit on the hopeful side. Looks like the market's settled down a bit since the feeding frenzie of the last few weeks.

    Yeah, all seems to be back up now, no harm done.

    Sort of got my wish for an easy match - my cup run will end next week against a team with an exquisite seam rating and more batting than I'll be able to bowl out, but that's fine with me - will keep the cash and rest every player I can; three of my five main players are now on lively, which ain't good seeing as they're also my trainees.

    Whenuapai open their 4th season in II.4 with a TIE win. chasing 180 odd, we were 39/4 before Morrison and Janes got the remainder of the runs required. An easy cup game on monday, so I'm resting a couple of bowlers who need to recharge their batteries so that they can hopefully start my fc match on wednesday.
