New to the league set up this season, x Morriis give us his view on the season so far.

Last season saw the addition of myself to the league, starting strong and middling off towards the end. Nevertheless securing myself promotion. Then in came season 35’s predictions, not everyone took part (myself included due to not being familiar with everyone’s abilities on the site) but those who did seemed to all have the same general idea. x Morriis to be relegated. Big B 1970 Shelbourne Hilly89 aaronc333 and SweatyBananas4U (though he did say I’d stay up in the play off) all had the up and coming manager to go straight back down. Honestly I was offended, how rude, slander, based on what?!? Well 12 games played and with only 6 remaining in season 35 I’m beginning to think these guys might know what they’re talking about.

From 12 games Inter Milan are currently working with a record of 4W 3D 5L and an even goal difference having both scored and conceded 29 goals. They sit 7th in the league, clear of the relegation zone but only by a fine margin of 3 points. 3 managers left to play and a total of 18 points up for grabs means staying in division 1 is a possibility, but a tough one! Before we take a look at what’s left to come, what’s gone so wrong for Inter so far?

Firstly, and most obviously, is the opposition. No one is in division 1 on a technicality (heavy Andy Tate impression). Everyone is here because they’ve fought their way to the top. So far there hasn’t been a single easy game in the season. Every point has had blood, sweat and tears poured into it. Battles on every inch of the pitch and 100% focus for every gruelling minute. It’s honestly a different kettle of fish.

Secondly is my play style. Not to give too much away to the 3 remaining managers who I’m yet to play, but I think my play style is being punished a lot more this season. With a heavy emphasis on attack and pressure in the opposition half. Neglecting wide areas of the pitch in favour of quick passing through the middle and looking for a final through ball. I think this is getting countered far too easily against opponents of a better standard. Defenders arnt getting drawn in as easily and opt for the smarter approach of standing their ground, leading to frustration on my part and trying to brute force a pass. It’s tough to deviate from the norm, but with the help of utilising head to head matches, a solution in the form of a formation change and the inclusion of some wide players may help solve this issue!

Thirdly is the teams. I think I got extremely lucky early on with a very solid well rounded team. But we’re deep into the second season now and people are brining in and sending out players like there’s no tomorrow. Managers have brought in players better suited to their teams and it’s showing. Now it’s not really fair to use this as an excuse, I’ve had the same opportunities as any other manager, we all have the same 24 hours in the day. However, I’m still using 7 of my originally signed players in my starting 11. By choice might I add! These are solid players and I’m not complaining, but maybe my comfort in these guys is holding me back. I’d be curious to know if many others still have as many from their list of initially assigned players?

Excuses out of the way, let’s look at what’s to come. 3 extremely tough opponents in the form of Burga boii SweatyBananas4U and RFC Buncey . Having played both Burga and Ali a few times, I can confidently say they will be the favourites going into these matches. If I can somehow steal at least 3 points from either of them I’ll consider that a success. Buncey is a bit more unknown, he’s clearly a good player currently sitting at 3rd in the league but I’m hoping a play style mix may give him a hard time. Or more likely he’ll comfortably win both games relegating me in the process.

With all that said, I welcome the remaining fixtures with open arms. My only goal is to try and finish at least 7th so I can tell all those who doubted me “told you so”.
