    Well he scored a goal. I usually started with Patrick Roberts on the left and Sterling on the right, and Lingard came on as sub in a few games for one of them. The press would have been going ballistic about him even being there, though. Blatant big-club bias.

    Roberts got injured the day before I announced my squad. I was pretty excited about having him as an impact sub option (I don't play with wingers and only usually use them if I'm chasing the game).

    so i went for a slightly different approach to this challenge, took smats advice and scouted every position based on form and performances, cleared the current england squad and ended up with quite a rag tag team with quite a few uncapped players. delli alli actually got injured in the days leading up to the competition kicking off and he was replaced by his team mate Dier

    so i went in to the group stages, and pretty much pissed them and didnt concede a single goal

    next round was a tricky round 2 tie against Uruguay but i breezed that too england 6.png

    which lead to a quarter final game against ze germans..... and lo and behold i get a golden goal from Welbs!

    resulting in a semi final draw against defending champs France.... what an interesting game this was and my players did their best to fuck things up with 2 sendings off but i got through on pens with the young Kidd getting our only goal of the game

    the other semi was against the Argies and the Austrians and guess who i got...... the fake germans! considering i lost three of my midfielders in the previous round i wasnt confident and the game went the distance to pens.... which i won again!!

    football is indeed coming home!

    seemed to find a good run of fortune in this challenge. i dont know if choosing random players helped but Ibe was my top scorer on 2 and Hart got into the dream team.

    i do believe this has helped my score somewhat?

    I haven't even heard of a few of the players in your squad.

    neither had I!:

    Frank Fielding - Bristol City Keeper
    Jordan Obita - Reading
    Cian Harries - Coventry player - is a Baggie in this game, and was for the previous challenge too
    Kadeem Harris - Cardiff player and was currently a Daggers player on the game!
    G Kidd - i cant remember who he played for, i will check when i am back on the lappy
    Adam Reach - sheff wed

    all of those players had average ratings over or around 7.0 in the game from at least a 20 game season and played for relatively large teams (no player value less than £100k)

    It's pretty annoying that I'm the worst at this.

    It's really not. It's quite pleasing, in fact.

    It's not a shock, to be honest.

    this was George Kidd, i dont think he exists in real life.

    i started him as a RB but when i was struggling for wingers he was pushed up into RM and did wonders for me

    Yeah, a lot of the best regens and new players end up at Guiseley and Alfreton, for some reason.
