    So, the MLS season is boring as hell, but I thought I'd get involved in this random challenge!

    And the new man in the door, on the 9th of January is...

    Spoiler!


    Let's see how long he lasts in LA. A known party man, LA might not be best for him!

    First season down. I won the title, lost the cup final on penalties, both games against Colorado.

    John Arne had a solid first season at left back, earning a spot on team of the season! Missed a few games through international call ups, but no injuries, and a good effort in general.

    Spoiler!

    Riise's stats absolutely dropping off a cliff in his second season. Fearing a retirement sooner rather than later!

    It may be evident from my avatar that I've started this! Trying to get rid of Robbie Keane straight away cos he earns wayyyyy too much, so let's hope I don't get sacked before the point-scoring starts in the second season

    Here we go! Fairly uninspiring, but DMCs do bloody excellently for me.

    Stats dropping off a cliff, I knew it was coming! Riise retires in his second season!! Disaster!



    Score season 1 - 7.55*38 = 286.9
    score season 2 - 6.90*20 = 138
    Total Score = 424.9 points

    Tactic I used

    Wow yeah that's some deterioration! I never normally keep players to this age, so can see me being upset watching my guy die in front of my eyes.

    Crazy how quickly he dropped. Was spotted enjoying the nightlife of LA one too many times.

    Well that's the end of that. The lazy bastard

    Spoiler!


    Was pretty excited after the two goals and two MOMs in two pre-season games, but he was nothing more than steady in the end.

    So my score is a pitiful 19*7.58 = 144.02

    I shall be submitting it even though it's nowhere near good enough, cos I've never done a challenge before

    Hello guys, if the player plays some games like a subtitute is it ok? (if he entered during the game obviously...)

    I can't see screenshots in work mate but I imagine others did include them so just check whatever people used on the challenge and go with that.

    I can see Riise has done so I would suggest that you should include substitution appearances.

    Cheers mate, if a couple of people have then I'd say yes, unfortunately nothing is mentioned in text form through the challenge thread.

    OP states total number of appearances so I'd call that any game time played.

    Ok, after worked all first year to build a good team with american players and made the more money I could,
    I couldn't sign the player I choose... (Boruc, Buffon, and Weidenfeller, 3 goalkeepers because I think they could play all the games and older).
    No way to sign one of them... So I signed Daniel Orlund from Rosenborg just before the first game of the second season.

    Season 1, losing in MLS final, but Open Cup winner (qualifying me to CONCACAF Cup and Merconorte Cup)

    Here is Daniel Orlund GK from Rosenborg https://imgur.com/TGDXu0Q
    Signed before the first game of the 2nd season, https://imgur.com/uvgQszZ

    Season 2 totally successful, MLS and Open Cup winner,
    CONCACAF and Merconorte Cup winner.

    Good team, with a world class player! (Dani Alves at end of contract at Barcelona, with 3,4M), https://imgur.com/FeZbOAR
    Here Daniel Orlund at the end of season 2, https://imgur.com/mTG55nB
    53 games * 7,28 = 385,84pts

    I hope he can do this 3 seasons more!!!

  24. Not a bad idea having a keeper as they may last longer than outfield players and can play every game unless injured or suspended, nice start

    Season 3, not so successful...

    MLS and Open Cup winner, but losing in CONCACAF, Merconorte Cup and Inter-american Cup...

    Daniel Orlund is 37 now, playing 52 games, and continuing for the moment... https://imgur.com/TD7QYsH
    Here is my regular team with tactic used. It's my best non wib-wob tactic, no way doing this challenge with 4-1-3-2 default... https://imgur.com/31t34VU
    52 games * 7,10 = 369,2pts
    369,2+385.84=755,04pts

    Season 4, Daniel Orlund is still with me!!!
    Open Cup winner, my only title this year, losing in Merconorte and CONCACAF final, and MLS 1/2 final...
    More difficult with this older team...
    Daniel Orlund is 38, played 48 games, https://imgur.com/L9Uckfz
    48 * 7.04 = 337.92pts
    337.92+755.04=1092.96pts
    Here is my regular team for season 4. https://imgur.com/UqgVg0J
    I hope this challenge will continue one more year!!!

  29. 3rd best score in this challenge so far, great chance of getting number 1 spot
