    Ohhh, close match vs. the Power. We were starved a possession a little, and I guess that isn't the best thing, but through some stout defence & solid keeping from Pinch it was good to be able to keep them to 1 goal. I'm a little annoyed it came via a penalty though. Personally quite pleased I managed to find the back of the net with my 1 and only shot

    LOL Thamba scoring a penalty, good times. A bit disappointed with that possession not to win the game, but oh well its just pre season and possession is more to do with tactics then anything else.

    On a personal note happy with MOM, but how come I only got 10 Tackling points. Its seems midfielders are getting a excessive amount points. I got 20 for one key pass myself. Reckon that needs to be looked at.

    Also both keeper had good games apart from letting one goal in each and both lost points. Surely for performances like that Donald should be even and Dunn should have got a few points added. I haven't looked at the other matches, but did notice midfielder getting an excessive amount of points in trail matches.

    I would hardly say the midfielders are getting excessive amounts of points (yes passing is getting a few more points than the other stats though it seems) because all players are struggling to get any from what I've noticed.

    Matchday 3

    Nixontown Nomads vs Island Swell
    After a close defeat away at United, Nomads prepared for their first ever home game.

    The visitors were The Swell who had finished the strongest of all teams in Season 1.

    Despite being at home it was going to be tough as Nixontown were missing their 2 strongest strikers (Corazzin and Zaza). Could the Nomads cope with the Swell?

    Would it be as easy as anticipated?
    That cracked me up. ACFC and Waitak get almost no one at their games.

    Matchday 3 cont...

    Southern Dynamo vs East Coast Fury


    This was the 3rd game for Fury in the pre-season but Dynamo were playing their first after their off-season shake up.

    Southern Dynamo are a collection of players from the old Southern Stallions, old Western Dynamo and new recruits.

    How would they gel and would they come together in the face of the challenge from the hereto impressive Fury?

    Hmmm, we were very lucky to get away with a draw there. Thats 2 games in a row where the opposition has dominated possession, which is something that needs to be addressed.

    Not a bad result. Dominated the game pretty well, although lacking that end product - only two shots on goal out of eight says we could use some target practice.

    How are points calculated, by the way? I noticed my yellow caused me to go -5 in everything despite my two key tackles, while Williams got one key tackle in and got a red - but still gained 35 points in tackling.
    REMEMBER: A couple of years in therapy, you'll get over it.

    Points will need to be looked at. They are set low for the pre-season and will be tweaked for the regular season.

    Im not changing it for the pre-season (as it has started as some have played more than others) but the issue is that I have the setting turned on that players with lower stats get more advantage from doing things in the game. Unfortunately its set so that the higher players may actually get a deduction.

    Its unfortunate but the points are so low as not to make much difference and think of it as the players with lower points getting more out of pre-season games.

    It will be changed for the season itself.
