My Club 2019 - Spinning and winning by GBR CRY.
There are two way to play and compete successfully in My Club PES 2019.
The poor and needy way (a la Thorpski and the desperate and greedy Trixta ) or where you can basically take your hard earned cash out of your pocket and buy your way to destiny , like Ashes and Crazy Llama and all the legendary PES players that support the cause and buy PES coins. Thanks to you the rest of us PES fans get to play too , respect. As I am tight grumpy old man I refuse to payout anymore cash for a game I won, right here at playtoenjoy.com. I will tell you more about this in my next article. Trust me it's well worth the wait. Don't do a Corky and refuse to play, ask Wickid about the time he threw away 3 Messi's.
Any way as I was saying you can get players with no cash, no money, no dollar, nowt. MyClub is simple: make more more money than you need and spin spin spin...
After diligent discussions with Thorpski and Oz , I decided to turn coach mode into my bitch by making it into a cash cow. 🐮 Firstly though, you must do everything to win your first ranked game of the day , so get ya best starting eleven , formation and tactics set. Try to include all the players in your squad with the A or B weekly ratings and use every nasty dirty lowdown camel toe type goal method to win this opening fixture because I guarantee your opponent will. There is up to 10000 GP at stake . If you're lucky enough to win 5 in a row you're getting another bonus too.
Pay close attention to your weekly league points as these can earn you up to another 28000 GP per week and never give in because a draw will save your precious weekly points. Now the cash cow. 🐮 When you have spare time to log in to MyClub put all your lowest rated players in your squad with your start up manager or cheapest manager. If you haven't got one hire one , I use Santini and all my white and bronze ball players only and compete in ranked SIM matches. Win, lose or draw, it's not important, just keep on sim play till your bank account has enough money for your first team contracts and spins. I generally have 75000 GP in my account at all times and every time I reach 100000 GP I have a spin from the collectors box. If no black balls appear , I immediately spin again ....... sometimes twice until a black ball player appears and then I repeat the process.
Just remember the minimum cash you can get for 30 games is 18000 GP and max is 48000 GP. When your players run out of contract you can sell them for cash or convert to trainers for your first team. For extra cash 💰 enter the comps to win featured players against the com. Use this as another cash cow or as a training ground for your first team and always try to have the bonus players in your squad , don't play it without them unless you're just after the cash. Once you feel confident enough you can attempt the online ranked games and competitions which also give out bonuses at the weekend if you get to the final 16 or further. This method has got me this squad so far:
Griezmann, ( I Fahookin hate this guy and his dumb celebration) Firmino, Wilshere, Nainggollan, Koke, Isco x2, Bakayoko x2, Pjanic, Umtiti, Dani Alves, Neymar, Messi, Florenzi, Fran Sol, Lucas Lima, Perisic, Depay, Luiz Gustavo, Strootman, Pellegrini x2.
Or you can pay real cash and get a sweaty team like Ashes:
Buffon, Kane, Neymar, Messi, Ronaldo, Hazard, Ziyech, Alexander Arnold, Douglas Costa, Firmino, Hamsik, Sane, Modric, Gueye, Manolas, Rudiger, Beckham, Marcelo, Pique, Umtiti, De Gea, T Kroos, Sane and Fahooking Suarez! Cash rules everything around me but I challenge Ashes and say let's play and see if cash rules...? (Only hating @ ashes that my wife won't let me buy any PES Coins) 😂
Not sure if the PS4 crew buy their players or earn them the hard way. I have not seen what goes on over at the MyClub dark side.
Rice and Peace....
Spent like 2 hours last night trying to get this nay nay. Soon as I got to the area (after a loooong arse ride) it was stood there looking at me, I thought great, this will be easy. Tried the sneak and calm technique first. When I got close enough to jump on it it Fahooking kicked me in the chops and sent me flying. Arthur said "So it's like that is it?" Damn right it was.
Tried that method a couple more times but it kept getting spooked and bolting off. I was getting pretty angry at this point because I wanted to go to bed. After the 4th attempt of creeping up on it and it high tailing it at about an arms length away, I whistled my war horse, jumped on it, pulled out my trusty lasso and slowly trotted towards albino bob. As soon as I got anywhere near, it sped off between the trees and over streams, just talking the piss basically. It got to a point in a clearing where I could have a good run at it. I stopped, took a deep breath... then Fahooking tapped the death out A, barreling towards it at full speed, screaming like a crazy bitch and swirling my lasso above my head, a short chase ensued and I finally gripped the Country & Western. I moved towards it and jumped on.
It then ragged the bejeesus out of poor Arthur and bucked me head first in the snow. By the time I got to my feet it was nowhere to be seen. Spent about an hour trotting about getting attacked by wolves every few minutes while my pussy arse 'war' horse screamed like a girl and ran off.
I give up about 1am and went to bed depressed but tonight, I'm going back there, and I'm going to shoot it in the face with my shotgun.
So I made it back up into the mountains last night, I wasn't leaving without that horse. Be it riding it home or in my belly, one way or another it's mine. Get to the spot and sure enough it's there, smug as you like. I want this horse to like me, to love me, so i opt for the sneak and calm technique. It takes patience and finesse. My heart was pounding all the way. I really didn't want this to turn into another 3 hour ordeal so I had to get it right..
I'm feeling good, I got my nay nay, now i'm gunna whip, to the horse shop and pimp my ride. Spent a whopping $300 kitting her out and grooming the bitch. Gave her everything a horse could want. Then named her Ghost Cherry. We are best friends. Ride or die.
Do you remember your first time? The anticipation. The nervousness. Putting it in and waiting for that sound. (The cartridge you filthy swines)
My first time was when I was about 13-14. I’d saved some money from my evening paper round and also added a Sunday morning paper round. I’d initially saved to buy a Sega Master System but found myself with more money due to my birthday and decided I’d go 16 bit rather than 8 bit and treat myself. I went into Bradford with my mum and my brother and parted with my hard earned cash in exchange for a Sega Megadrive.
What I hadn’t considered was that I had just about enough money to buy myself the console but it didn’t come with a game. I borrowed some cash and got Sonic The Hedgehog as reviews had been positive and it looked great graphically. My first proper console was bought and I couldn’t wait to get home and try it out.
I’d previously had an Atari 2600 with games like Keystone Cops, Decathlon etc but that was years ago and the games and graphics now seem terrible. I also had a Commodore 64 when others had an Amiga and had enjoyed games like Yie Ar Kung Fu back in the day. Gaming was moving on and I didn’t want to get left behind. I’d played on both the master system and the megadrive and had loved games like Golden Axe and wanted my own console rather than getting a go occasionally at a friends house.
I got my console home and had a quick look at the instructions. Power lead in, aerial lead into the back of the TV, (might have been a scart lead back then) and controller plugged in the front. Cartridge inserted. Power turned on and that magical sound of “SAY-GAR” as the blue writing appears on the screen and confirms you’ve set it up right and managed to not blow it up.
I had hours of fun on Sonic, smashing through walls and finding all those hidden areas. Having battles with Dr Robotnik and losing all your rings by landing on a crab. I look back at those days with fondness and reflect on how much computer games and arcades played a part in my childhood and continue to do so now as a fat, old, 41 year old (supposed) adult.
I never bothered with the original Nintendo but I did have a Super Nintendo and spent hours arranging tournaments with my friends on Street Fighter 2 and Super Mario Kart. I even opted out of R.E at school in favour of a module on Charity Work and arranged a Street Fighter 2 tournament at school to raise money for charity. I charged people to enter the tournament and then charged the spectators a small entry fee to watch during lunchtimes. The tournament was won by a kid in my class called Aaron Hutchinson, who was the best SF2 player I ever had the privilege of watching.
Street Fighter 2 was amazing and was one of the first times it truly felt like the arcade was being brought to your living room. I’d spent money and time at local arcades in Bradford called Ideal (Manchester Road) and Galaxy (underneath the Acropolis cafe in the town centre) but now the hadoukens and spinning bird kicks were on my TV in front of me.
It’s a shame both arcades no longer exist and arcades in general are hard to find. With young people having nowhere to go, a lack of youth clubs locally and not much for young people to do, an arcade could offer that sanctuary where people meet, socialise and play games together. I know these days you can put on a headset and socialise with your online friends but not leaving the house is isolating and not good for anyone.
In terms of consoles I added a Mega CD to my Sega Megadrive but there were only a handful of decent games ever made for it and both still exist in a cupboard at my parents house. I also had a Nintendo 64 and it was between Nintendo and Sega that I got into what was J League Soccer and then International Superstar Soccer that later led to me playing games like PES and FIFA. I’m not a big fan of first person shooters like Call Of Duty but one game I absolutely loved was Goldeneye and that was a classic at the time.
My brother had a Dreamcast that I never played on much and I had the original first Sony PlayStation that seemed to be taking gaming to another level. I’ve stuck with Sony since, through the PS2, PS3 and now PS4 eras and never owned an X Box of any kind, despite liking the console and the controller.
I think my favourite one player game of all time has to be Resident Evil 4 and I recently bought the remastered PS4 version to re-live it all over again. Who can also forget that first Resident Evil when a eerily creepy silence is broken by a doberman jumping through a window and trying to savage your face?
We have now re-entered the realms of Virtual Reality headsets that never really took off first time around and I’m not sure how consoles can improve to the next level when we’ll be looking at a PS5 and a new X Box but I’m sure they’re already past the planning stage and with the emergence of Ultra HD 4K definition TV’s the future will be bright, brighter than Plasma or 1080p.
Just to touch on the social/anti-social side of gaming for a minute there are people I chat with online through Play to Enjoy forum on the PS4 chat parties that I’ve never met. Some of them I’ve only ever known by their online username and might not ever meet but there is still a social aspect to gaming forums, leagues, competitions and online party chats. We even get special guests like Ozmazster dropping in now and again. Urban Legend suggests he’s a 7ft black guy with ginger hair that likes Pot Noodles, Rustler Burgers and stealing sat navs in the Warrington area. Maybe he’s just a myth and doesn’t actually exist? (How you doing lads?)
I also think you can create a community online if people feel valued and you’ll find people willing to donate time and money to help run the show. Everyone pulling in the same direction, helping out with admin etc and all with the same goal.
Back on tangent now and a question for everyone else. What was your first console? Did you buy it? Was it a gift? What games did you get with it? What are your favourite games of yesteryear? How do you think gaming can go forward in terms of technology?
We are seeing gaming going down the streaming/Twitch route and the growth of E-Sports is huge. Young people would have previously watched shows like GamesMaster on TV and who could forget the lovely, lisping Violet Berlin. These days they’ll tune into some guy playing COD or Fortnite and watching gaming is becoming as popular as playing it.
There will always be the narrow minded that claim gaming is just for kids. Tell that to the 50 year old Hammybiggs, currently sat in his Y fronts, drinking Horlicks and moaning about Konami scripted goals. (Only joking Biggs) I don’t see why gaming is ever seen as age restricted when you’ve got games like GTA and Red Dead Redemption that aren’t exactly ideal for kids.
Some consoles seem to be aimed at a younger audience, based on the type of games they release whereas others seem more aimed at an 18-35+ market. Gaming is changing, sadly a lot of it seems profit related. Release half a game, charge punters £50 and then release the other half 6 months later and charge them a season pass for the content.
FUT and MyClub are aimed at getting you to spend real money on fantasy players and then games like Fortnite are offered for free but then parents log into their online banking to find their little cherubs have spent £200 on outfits, harvesting tools and dances for their characters. There’s a real difference if a 10 year old tells you they’re getting a new skin than if a 16 year old is getting a new skin (probably from the pharmacy for a date).
I’d love to see a reemergence of arcades and I’d love to get involved with arranging live gaming tournaments so if you know anyone looking for that someone put them in touch. For now I’ll be on my PS4, getting my arse kicked on PES and I’m sure pretty soon a group of us will be hopping onto our horses and crewing up on Red Dead.
Let me know your favourite consoles, games, arcade games and retro memories. Hope this can generate some discussion.
It seems a long time ago since Big Ron took over at Torino and made his first appearance in the P2E league.... Anyway, after leaving Torino due to Roland's (Nilsson) sexual exploits with the chairman's wife, Big Ron had a brief spell in Portugal in charge of Benfica where somehow he managed a promotion.
Although the Portuguese climate thoroughly agreed with Big Ron's need for a constant tan, the lure of Japan and the offer of a free motorbike from Kawasaki was too much to resist and off he went to the land of the rising sun. A big decision had to be made at this point.... was he going to take Roland (his faithful no 2)? After much deliberation Big Ron came to the conclusion that lure of Geisha girls all over the place was going to prove too enticing for Roland, and as consequence he felt it would be best if he searched for a new no 2.
Flicking through the contact list on his iPhone, he could see a whole range of potential candidates..... Gary Megson, Sheridan, Hirsty, Waddle..... all had fine qualities but Mego was too ginger, Sheridan... mad Irish man, Hirsty... always on the pop, and Waddle... never available as he is always doing reunion gigs singing Diamond Lights with that nut job Hoddle.
Then his eye was caught by one name... Palmer! Why of course.... it was the obvious choice - Carlton Palmer... who better to have as a no 2! Hardworking, industrious, Carlton would be the perfect choice... his Mr Gadget like limbs would look great in the Kawasaki tracksuit...
A quick call to Carlton and the deal was done ....
Carlton Palmer - enjoying life as a new Number 2
Much to Big Ron's surprise Carlton had just done a coaching course and was full of enthusiasm and ideas for his new role! Controversially he wanted him to scrap his 4 4 2 formation that had served him so well and implement a new 4 3 3 system. Big Ron was not too keen on such a radical shake up but as Carlton pointed out.. "It hasn't done Klopp any harm". Anyway, after several Sapporo's followed by a couple of Saki's.... even Big Ron could see the benefits of a new 4 3 3 system.... at least it would play to the strengths of Pepe (the main man on the right wing).
Recruitment was going to be crucial, the old guard was going to have to go .... Gourcuff, Stoch, Di Santo, Ivi Lopez , Rebrov were all shipped out. In came new fresh talent L Evangelista (who wouldn't want a super model in the centre of midfield) , Vada (every team needs some one with Jedi powers) and Daddy Cool..... now it is questionable whether Daddy Cool was brought in for his footballing ability or whether Big Ron just loved the hit back in the 70's and just wanted the opportunity to sing "ooooooh Daddy, ooooooh Daddy" in every team talk... at least the Karaoke sessions on the long coach journeys were sorted...
With the new squad assembled... it is now time to see whether Big Ron and the Kawasaki squad can handle life in the Xbox Premier.... early results have been up and down... and it looks like survival will be the main target for this season....
It's taken a few short months for Catalan minnows Girona to make their mark at Play To Enjoy. Placed in Division 1 and led by Welsh manager Baddar, the Gironistes have surpassed expectations and find themselves near the top of the table as the half-way point of the season approaches.
"It's not a situation we were expecting to be in, but I think we're there on merit. It's a hard-working group and the results thus far have matched our strong performances," Baddar told the Jungle Gazette.
Girona is a club that hadn't as much as played in the top tier of Spanish football until 2017, and now they're making waves on the world stage. Baddar is refusing to get carried away with their good start, however.
"Everyone had tipped us to be in a relegation battle, but the first eight games have gone well for us. It's important we build on it though, as there's still a long way to go in the season."
Many have singled out a few players in particular regarding the strong start - Valère Germain being one of them, with the Frenchman netting 7 times already. Jonathan Cafú has also received plaudits for his performances which have included a handful of goals.
Valère Germain - 7 goals so far for Girona
"It's such a cliche thing to say but it's been a team effort. Andreas Pereira has been fantastic alongside Luka (Milivojevic) in midfield, Abdul (Waris) has stepped in when required and done a great job, and when you look at the amount of goals we've conceded compared to the rest of the league, we're strong at the back, too."
The Girona boss did refuse to get drawn into any promotion talk though.
"Look, I've said since the start of the season that it's a very competitive league. There are a few teams who've stood out so far but there are no easy wins. My job is to get the lads playing attractive football and the results will hopefully continue to speak for themselves."
A mischievous grin spreads across the handsome face of Zenit St. Petersburg's newly appointed manager on a cool September morning, when asked, "Are you more optimistic about premiership survival this year?" he slowly removes his hands from down his pants to pull the microphone closer and replies, "Not really." PANDA's grin now expands to reveal his bright whites as he slowly relaxes back into his chair awaiting the next line of enquiry.
The Zenit head coaches lack of trust in his own ability proved appropriate in almost all of his opening 5 games. Some abysmal results sparingly scattered with the odd away point which delivered some false optimism for the Russian side were beginning to look farcical. Seemingly unaffected of fazed by the poor results, PANDA remained calm on the outside but those close to the Zenit manager said he was concealing a deep feeling of dejection. Some say he didn't know how to play the game anymore. Others say he'd fallen out of love. The main feeling coming out of the club was he definitely could not decide what formation to deploy or which tactics to administer that would compliment the personnel he'd acquired.
But what a difference a few weeks can generate. Zenit are unbeaten in their last 3 games and 4 desperately needed points have supplied cracks at bottom of the Xbox Premiership mountain, enabling Zenit to slowly ascend to safety. Although it's very early in the season, this latest confidence boost to the manager and squad will provide scope for Premiership existence. Something PANDA had no real optimism regarding back in September.
What's next? The Zenit boss will surely be licking his lips this week as a few clicks navigating to the fixtures section of the site informs him of a double header, a home and away fixture against arch rival Crackdogg and his Celtic bums. As we all know by now there are two Crackdoggs, the friendly, mans best friend Crackdogg and the rabid, fur wet with sweat, league game Crackdogg. Could this be the beginning or the end for PANDA's Zenit hopefuls? 6 points would decidedly lift Zenit in the table almost as high as it would lift their confidence, whereas 0 points from this double header could resign the Russian giant to playing in Division 1 next season, an outcome that could cost the Panda his job, and his new barmaid side piece.
In a couple of months time Metalprawn has been a manager in the world of P2E for 2 years. It's safe to say that the time has flown by, but it's not always been a smooth ride.
His career started out as manager of Lazio, this was to be an interesting time for the young manager who was trying to find his feet in a league with some managers who had been around for some time.
The one thing that stood out in these early days was Mr Prawns eye for up and coming talent on the football pitch, he signed players such as Marco Asensio, Brozovic, Andre Silva, Romagnoli and Donnarumma. These young guns provided the backbone of the Lazio team that managed to hold their own in the league despite some heavy defeats including an 8-2 loss which left the fans going proper mental.
Unfortunately these players soon became too good for a team wallowing in mid table and they mostly left for pastures new, as did the manager.
Next up was Ajax, Metalprawn was full of confidence after having a decent start to his management career. He managed to bring Donnarumma and Silva to Holland with him but they didn't stay for long. This was the season that proved to be Prawns best to date as his Ajax team finished in the top 3. In the close season they even went on to win the champions league! Which still proves to be the managers only piece of silverware to date.
Once again the manager with itchy feet moved to yet another club, this time it was back to Italy with Juventus and hopes of challenging for the league title. He managed to sign players such as Belotti, Jordan Lukaku and Fellaini (who was known as a beast). Unfortunately things didn't quite work out as planned and although the season was by no means a disaster it certainly wasn't one to remember. Although Belotti did score a goal that was up for the Puskas award, he was however pipped by a scrappy goal scored by one of @Cloughy players, the investigation into the voting proved inconclusive.
The strange lands of Brazil were next to embrace the wonders of Metalprawn with Flamengo choosing to take a punt on the plucky manager, but to this proved to be his lowest point.
Flamengo finished the premier league rooted to the bottom of the table with only 3 wins all season, fans burnt the Brad pitt out of effigies of the manager and called for his head. Mr Prawn chose not to hide from this and willingly admitted that it was all his fault and he vowed to make things right. The fans wanted him gone but the club was tied into a 2 season deal with him and so he stayed, and this proved to be a good thing.
Flamengo flourished in PS4's 1st division, they were scoring goals for fun and only missed out on the league title by 1 bloody point! But they qualified for the promotion playoff to return to the premier league and they ended up winning this 2-1 against O'Higgins who were managed by @Hammybiggs .
Players like Malcom, Shelvey, Rulli, Odriozola and Pottker were all responsible for this promotion, but while they all celebrated Metalprawn slipped away into the night and out of the country, all he left was a message saying "sorry for what happened but now the club is back where they belong, my work here is done"
And so we come to the present day where Prawn now finds himself in charge of Atletico Madrid, he has managed to create a team full of talent. L.Martinez leads the front line alongside Diaby and Malcom. Acuna, Romeu and Sissoko/Aouar run the midfield. At the back we find the ever faithful Lukaku who is joined by N'Koulou, Kouyate and the talented Calabria while Vaclik and Gordon compete for the number 1 shirt.
Despite this wealth of talent Atletico were amongst the favourites to get relegated but things have started well with the club being undefeated against 3 of the league's toughest opponents ( @Don Raphael 007 @Cloughy @Gregmeister ). Obviously there is an awful long way to go but things are looking brighter for the manager, will the future hold more up' s than the previous years....lets hope so.
Until next time......Stay classy
So season five seems so long ago, Sunderland under the management of Abbafather had just gained promotion from the P2E PS4 First Division, automatic promotion i hastened to add! Players and fans a like were looking forward to taking their rightful place at the top table of P2E football The Premier League and all the fame and trappings that goes with it. Locking horns with the @Gregmeister Champions Dortmond, @Don Raphael 007 beloved West Ham, @PapaDolmio and Valencia, @Ultravires and Millonarios as well as the other newcomers to the division. @Cloughy 's PSG who had won the First Division title ahead of the Wearside men, @blueyboy_73 at Inter Milan who won the Play Off Final, @Petmaister's Panathinakkos who had showed enough quality to earn his place and an unknown player called @Dracarys who had made quite a name for him self on the darkside with his Lazio team.
Sunderland went into season six with excitement but no fear against these behemoths of the PS4 side! Who was first out of the hat well lets just say the draw wasn't kind a trip to defending Champions Dortmond and @Gregmeister in the first weeks! This was met with cheers on Wearside "Lets put these German So and So's to the sword!" was the cry " Aye and there Brummie manager." So the Black Cats travelled to Dortmond and despite running into a three goal lead couldnt hold out to the more experienced outfit finally getting beat 5 - 4. But plenty of positives to be took scoring four goals against the current Champions away from home was seen as a great first step in the division. Up next was another newly promoted team as Sunderland again travelled away this time to @Cloughy's PSG, these two teams had always had close matches and this was no different a share of the spoils in a 2 - 2 draw. Both teams will of been hoping for a win to try and get some momentum going but neither team would lie down so it finished a draw. A loss and win in the first two matches wasn't bad and morale was still high in the Sunderland Squad as they looked to their next match their first home tie against Inter Milan and @blueyboy_73 playoff Champions!
