It's not right, there is to much a gap, I nearly brought a keepers with 2 years left in the game to llay in my reserves this year and then thought, is that really how I should be using my reserves but I know know there is no point in playing tactically as I did last year in the hope of promotion and instead just play for abs.
Well yeah you can play for prize money or you can play for abs... as you can see from my keeper I'm doing the latter. Hopefully he's not so rubbish that (a) he doesn't develop and (b) he hinders the development of the other players. Else I might have to rethink. But I have 2 good keepers aged 26 and 24 so I have no need to build a great keeper. Maybe this is a reason to loan in a reserve keeper rated 25-26...
Yes I'm just hoping to make a small profit on him. But we're talking maybe 5-10M profit over about 7 seasons. It's not much but it's free money. It might be better to loan in a reserve keeper and get paid for it, and win some reserve prize money at the same time.

Nice to see our development striker Templeton banging in a hat trick to turn around a 3-1 deficit, and the lad Manzoni in goals making a useful 12 saves. Otherwise, a pretty quiet week by reserve league standards.

A couple of goal fests there. Feyenoord played against only 2 DFs for most of the game, interesting to see Vieri outshining his strike partner rated 4 higher. Great game for us, sealing the win with two goals at the death. Schoolboy keeper Manzoni put in a decent 17 saves, this is fantastic experience for him. Feyenoord and Juve keep their 100% record... they were the prediction for the top 2.
ianmcnamara: Can't believe we're in this posision with two games to go. We just silently crept up on Everton and capitalized. If I end up taking up a new challange at the end of the season leaving Schalk with a title win would be the perfect way to end my time there.
