December 2013:

Goalkeepers

Jace Hunter, Feyernoord:
Jace eventually signed for Feyernoord where he has already appeared in 3 cup games (conceding 3, keeping 1 clean sheet and a 6.63 rating). He is undecided whether to play for England or Canada, having been kept for England at the U-19 level and Canada at the U-20 level.

Al Mighty, Valenciennes:
Al was given a chance with the first team but 6 goals conceded in 2 games meant that he was pulled shortly. He has been sent down to the reserve side where it's been a mixed bag (5 games, 7 conceded, 1 clean sheet, 1 player of the match, 6.58 rating).

Defenders

Robbie Collins, unsigned:
Robbie is still looking for a club. The good news is that Man City is now showing interest in him but that's the only club.

Flere Imsaho, Feyernoord:
Flere is becoming a first team regular at Feyernoord, even at his young age. He has played 9 games, with 1 assist and a 6.94 rating.

Rohan Edwards, Galatasaray:
Rohan is joining Galatasaray on 1 January 2014.

David Ginsberg, Rennais:
David suffered knee tendonitis in November and is out for 5 months. He has played in 2 lower league games for the Rennais Reserves and had a 7.35 rating.

Midfielders

Jawouk Bafou, Man Utd:
Jawouk damaged his Achilles tendon in December and is expected to be out for 3 months. He had appeared in 9 reserve games, had 2 assists and 1 player of the match award and a 7.23 rating.

Jake Chippin, Newcastle:
Jake is in the Newcastle reserves where he is doing well. 13 games, 1 goal, 4 assists, 2 player of the match awards and a 7.03 rating bodes well for him.

Deacon Palmieri, Lorient:
The very outspoken Deacon played 18 games for the Lorient reserves (2 assists, 6.48 rating) before being called back up to the Lorient Ligue 1 squad. He has also been appointed as the Danish U-19 captain.

Shane Christopher, Dinamo:
Shane has played brilliantly in the Croatian league for Dinamo, with a 8.03 rating in his first 3 league games. Overall, he's made 6 appearances, scored 2 goals and has a 7.18 rating.

Benton Gale, Man Utd:
22 games in the reserves for Benton, with 1 goal and a 6.98 rating. He made his first team debut for Man Utd in a League Cup match but played below expectations (6.00 rating).

Michael Samuelle, Leverkusen:
Michael has been sent out to the Leverkusen reserve team playing in the lower leagues. He has performed well there, 9 games, 1 goal, 3 assists and a 7.07 rating.

Eddie Chilton, Fulham:
Eddie has been playing a lot of reserve and U-21 games, already chalking up 30 such appearances (1 goal, 11 assists, 3 player of the match awards, 7.12 rating). He also made a League Cup appearance for Fulham (6.2 rating).

Dex Morgan, Feyernoord:
Another of the youngsters ends up at Feyernoord but his late signing hasn't held him back. He's made 3 first team appearances (1 assist, 6.40 rating) and played a bunch of reserve games (14 games, 2 goals, 6 assists, 2 player of the match awards, 7.12 rating).

Patrick Hutt, Man City:
Patrick has had a rough start to his career, tearing a calf muscle in September and he has only just started training again. Prior to that, he had appeared in 5 reserve games and had a 6.78 rating.

Kuji Chagulia, OB:
Kuji eventually ends up at OB, a club in the Danish league. He's made 4 appearances for the first team with a 7.10 rating.

Strikers

Rob Nielsen, Lausanne:
Rob has already become part of the first team in Lausanne, with 7 games but just 1 goal (from a penalty). His 6.31 rating shows that he's still struggling a little with the pace of the game.

Brian Bennett, Nice:
Nice sent Brian out to its reserve squad where he scored 2 goals in 4 games and he was called back to the Ligue 1 squad soon after. He hasn't made a first team appearance yet though.

Roger Berisha, Evian (on loan to Genk):
Disaster for Roger as he tore his cruciate ligaments and will be out for the rest of the season. He had made 2 substitute appearances for Genk prior to that with a 6.15 rating.

End of Season 2013/2014

Goalkeepers

Jace Hunter, Feyernoord:
Jace was looking forward to the new year but strained a calf in January. Just as he returned to fitness, he then broke his ankle in February which meant he would miss the rest of the year.

Games: 3, Conceded: 3, Clean Sheets: 1, 6.63 rating

Al Mighty, Valenciennes:
Al played in both the Valenciennes first team (in Ligue 1) and its reserve team (in CFA-A) this year. He has been capped at both the Italian U-19 level and the US U-20 level. Already considered a first team squad player, he will look to establish himself as the number 1 for Valenciennes next season.

Games: 6(1 as a sub), Conceded: 10, 1 yellow card, 6.92 rating

Defenders

Robbie Collins, QPR:
It took a while but Robbie eventually found a home at QPR. He is in the U-21 team and is considered a hot prospect for the future. Capped at the U-21 level for Ireland (5 caps), he spent most of his time playing in U-21 and reserve matches (6 games, 7.37 tackles/game, 7.18 rating).

Games: 1 (1 as a substitute), 6.20 rating

Flere Imsaho, Feyernoord:
Flere has started his career brightly at Feyernoord, playing 24 games for the first team at RB. His performances have earned him a call-up to the US national team where he has already earned 3 caps.

Games: 24 games (8 as a sub), 1 goal, 2 assists, 1 yellow, 1 red, 6.3 tackles/game, 7.00 rating
1 Eredivise Team of the Week award

Rohan Edwards, Galatasaray:
Rohan joined Galatasaray in January but injured his hip in February while training. He was out for 5 months and will need time to rehabilitate even after he's back. Still considered a hot prospect for the future for the team.

Games: 0

David Ginsberg, Rennais:
The US U-20 defender (6 caps, 1 goal) played very sparingly this year, largely because he was out with a serious injury for 5 months. He is considered a squad player in the Rennais team and he is optimistic about his chances.

Games: 1, 6.40 rating

Midfielders

Jawouk Bafou, Man Utd:
Jawouk struggled with injuries his first season, with a total of 21 weeks out in all from 4 injuries. Hopefully it doesn't suggest an injury-prone career. The French U-19 national plays in the Man Utd reserves (9 games, 2 assists, 1 MOM, 1 yellow, 7.23 rating) and is considered a hot prospect.

Games: 0

Jake Chippin, Newcastle:
Jake has been capped at the England U-19 level and plays regularly for the Newcastle reserves (18 games, 1 goal, 4 assists, 3 MOM, 2 yellows, 7.17 rating). Considered a hot prospect for Newcastle.

Games: 0

Deacon Palmieri, Lorient:
Deacon spent time going between the Lorient Ligue 1 team and the reserve team (in CFA-D). His most playing time came with the reserves (22 games, 3 assists, 5 yellows, 6.45 rating). Captain of the Danish U-19 team.

Games: 0

Shane Christopher, Dinamo:
Captain of the U-20 side for South Africa (7 caps, 3 goals), Shane had a good season at Dinamo, managing 2 goals in 13 games. He was supposed to go on loan to Gronigen (in the Dutch league) but suffered a sports hernia at the end of the season and the deal was cancelled.

Games: 13 games (2 as a sub), 2 goals, 7.11 rating

Benton Gale, Man Utd:
Benton was a League Cup regular for Man Utd this year as he made all of his appearances in that tournament. He also showed his creative side as he created 9 goals for the reserve side (27 games, 1 goal, 9 assists, 4 yellows, 6.95 rating). Capped at the England U-19 level.

Games: 4, 2 assists, 6.55 rating

Michael Samuelle, Leverkusen:
Michael was a regular in the Leverkusen II side that played in a regional league (27 games, 3 goals, 6 assists, 6 yellows, 1 red, 6.86 rating). He was also a member of the Leverkusen U-19 side that won the German U-19 cup.

Games: 0
Winner of 2014 German U-19 cup

Eddie Chilton, Fulham:
Other than his 1 appearance in the League Cup, Eddie didn't play anymore for the first team this season. He played a lot of reserve and U-21 games though (44 games, 1 goal, 12 assists, 3 MOM, 2 yellows, 7.06 rating).

Games: 1, 6.20 rating

Dex Morgan, Feyernoord:
Dex slowly established himself as a first team player in Feyernoord and earned himself his first international cap for the US as well.

Games: 12 (5 as sub), 2 assists, 2 yellows, 6.52 rating

Patrick Hutt, Man City:
Patrick will chalk this off as a lost season. He tore a calf muscle in September which kept him out till January. In January, he sprained an ankle which kept him out till March. In April he damaged his Achilles tendon and that ended his season.

Games: 0

Kuji Chagulia, OB:
Canadian U-20 international (3 caps) Kuji played sparingly in the Danish league but well enough to show that he has potential at that level.

Games: 8 (3 as sub), 6.91 rating

Strikers

Rob Nielsen, Lausanne:
US U-20 international (7 caps, 1 goal) struggled a little during his first season with Lausanne, being unable to score as many as he would have liked (just 3 goals in 18 games). He will need to improve that if he wants to move on to better things.

Games: 18 games (1 as sub), 3 goals, 2 yellows, 6.36 rating

Brian Bennett, Nice:
Brian is also a US U-20 international (7 caps, 1 goal). He spent most of the year at the Nice reserve side (12 games, 3 goals, 1 assist, 6.54 rating) and Nice was relegated from Ligue 1 at the end of the year.

Games: 0

Roger Berisha, Evian (on loan to Genk):
Another player who lost the season due to a serious injury as torn cruciate ligaments meant that Roger did not get any meaningful playtime this year.

Games: 2 (2 as sub), 6.15 rating

Oh damn, that's a disappointing year for Roger.

Back story on Berisha: in FM09 I had a game as FC Paris. Berisha was a new-gen that came in as a forward and catapulted us into Ligue 1 and the Champions League the next season. He's the best player I've ever had in any FM iteration.

September 2014:

No major movements at the start of the 2nd season for the players, although a couple went out on loan for more playing time.

Goalkeepers

Jace Hunter, Feyernoord, 350k valuation:
Jace Hunter starts the season as a backup to the first team and has not played for them yet this year. He has played in 3 reserve games (conceding 4, 6.83 rating). He appears to be headed for a potential international career with England as he has been called up to the England U-21 squad.

Games: 0

Al Mighty, Valenciennes, 925k valuation:
It's not clear yet what Al's role will be this year as he is being used in a squad rotation system. The suspicion is that he will be the keeper on the bench although he did come on as a sub and kept a clean sheet (7.9 rating). He was supposed to join up with the Italian U-21 squad but a virus meant that he had to drop out.

Games: 1 (1 as a sub), 1 clean sheet, 7.9 rating

Defenders

Robbie Collins, QPR, 175k valuation:
Robbie is in the QPR U-21 team still (9 games, 1 goal, 1 assist, 1 MOM, 7.10 rating) although he has made 1 appearance for QPR's first team this year in the League Cup.

Games: 1 game, 7.00 rating

Flere Imsaho, Feyernoord, 2.5m valuation:
US international Flere (6 caps) was looking forward to the start of the season when the injury bug struck. He tore a groin muscle and is out till October.

Games: 0

Rohan Edwards, Galatasaray, 250k valuation:
It's not clear if Rohan will ever be fit. After recovering from his season-ending injury, he proceeded to stub a toe at the end of July and, after returning, twisted his knew at the end of August. He has made 1 reserve team appearance (7.10 rating).

Games: 0

David Ginsberg, Rennais, 1million valuation:
David is back to the Rennais reserve squad that plays in CFA-D (the French 4th division) where he is a regular in the side (5 games, 1 goal, 1 assist, 7.36 rating).

Games: 0

Midfielders

Jawouk Bafou, Man Utd, 650k valuation:
French U-19 international Jawouk has not had a chance to appear in any games yet this year. He has been listed for loan and is looking to find a club that will give him game time to develop.

Games: 0

Jake Chippin, Newcastle, 1.5m valuation:
Jake is now an England U-21 international. He has appeared in one game for Newcastle in the League Cup and played in the reserves as well (5 games, 1 assist, 6.63 rating).

Games: 1 game, 6.40 rating

Deacon Palmieri, Lorient, 675k valuation:
Deacon is now with the Danish U-21 team but he believes that he should hold out for French citizenship (in another 4 years). He's with Lorient's reserve team that also plays in the 4th division (5 games, 6.50 rating).

Games: 0

Shane Christopher, Dinamo, 275k valuation:
Shane returned from injury to find playing time hard to come by, although he is still captain of the South African U-20 team.

Games: 1 game (1 as a sub), 6.40 rating

Benton Gale, Man Utd, 2.1m valuation:
Benton is listed for loan but is widely regarded as being a future prospect for Man Utd. He was part of the England U-19 team that won the European U-19 championship. Playing time has been in the reserves for him this year (4 games, 1 goal, 6.63 rating).

Games: 0

Michael Samuelle, Leverkusen (on loan to Celtic), 600k valuation:
Leverkusen decided to loan Michael out to Celtic at the start of September to hopefully get more playing time, rather than spending time in the German lower divisions. He is currently with the Swiss U-21 squad.

Games: 0

Eddie Chilton, Fulham, 475k valuation:
Another member of the England U-19 team that won the European U-19 championship, Eddie is a hot prospect for Fulham but is still playing U-21 and reserve games although he looks like he's way too good to play at that level (4 games, 1 goal, 1 assist, 1 MOM, 7.68 rating).

Games: 0

Dex Morgan, Feyernoord, 625k valuation:
Dex has made 7 first team appearances so far although his morale is low for some reason. He has not been called up for the US squad since his first cap.

Games: 7 games, 1 assist, 2 yellows, 6.51 rating

Patrick Hutt, Man City (on loan to Birmingham), 775k valuation:
Patrick has been loaned out to Birmingham in the Championship to get playing time. He is supposed to be used in a squad rotation basis but has only played reserve games so far (5 games, 1 goal, 2 assists, 1 red card, 6.72 rating).

Games: 0

Kuji Chagulia, OB, 325k valuation:
Kuji continues to feature for the OB first team this year but the most interesting news is that PSG is apparently highly interested in him. He has already come out to say that it would be hard to turn down a move to such a big club.

Games: 9 games, 1 goal, 7.08 rating

Strikers

Rob Nielsen, Lausanne, 1.8 million:
There is speculation Rob may be called up to the US national team soon as he was named to a provisional squad for a match. He has improved slightly this year for Lausanne.

Games: 5 games, 1 goal, 6.46 rating

Brian Bennett, Nice, 500k valuation:
Brian has also been sent to the French 4th divisions with the Nice reserve side where he has been very good so far (3 games, 3 goals, 7.27 rating).

End of 2014/2015 season:

A few interesting moves for some of the players and some players are really starting to develop well.

Goalkeepers

Jace Hunter, Feyernoord, 1m valuation:
England U-21 keeper Jace Hunter (1 cap) played sparingly this year, spending most of the season as the number 2 keeper at Feyernoord. Some success for him though as he picked up a Dutch Cup winner's medal when Feyernoord beat Ajax 3-1 in the finals. There was also speculation Man City were interested in him but he signed a new contract with Feyernoord to end those rumours.

Games: 4 games, 6 goals conceded, 1 clean sheet, 6.5 rating.
Dutch Cup winner

Al Mighty, Valenciennes, 1.6m valuation:
Al Mighty received his first cap for the Italy U-21 side this year and managed to pick up some games for Valenciennes as their number 2 keeper and even managed to be named to the Ligue 1 team of the week once.

Games: 10 games (2 as sub), 8 goals conceded, 5 clean sheets, 2 MOM, 7.18 rating
1 Ligue 1 Team of the week award

Defenders

Robbie Collins, QPR, 250k valuation:
Robbie played a couple of games for QPR this year but spent most of his season impressing in the reserves (31 games, 2 goals, 1 assist, 1 MOM, 7.21 rating) and he has begun to draw interest from some other clubs (Celtic, Sheffield United, St Johnstone and St Mirren). Capped 11 times for the Irish U-21s.

Games: 1 game, 7.00 rating

Flere Imsaho, Feyernoord, 3m valuation:
Flere had a successful season after coming back from injury. The US international (12 caps) won the Dutch Cup with Feyernoord where he started at right back and also picked up another Eredivise team of the week award.

Games: 27 games (16 as sub), 3 assists, 2 MOM, 7.22 rating
1 Eredivise team of the week award
Dutch Cup winner

Rohan Edwards, Galatasaray, 1.3m valuation:
Rohan did manage to appear in 2 cup games for Galatasaray but found other playing time hard to come by. He continues to draw attention however and will spend the coming season on loan at West Brom in the Premier League.

Games: 2 games, 1 assist, 7.15 rating

David Ginsberg, Rennais, 1.5m valuation:
David played well for the Rennais reserve team this year (14 games, 1 goal, 1 assist, 7.02 rating) and managed 1 match for the first team as well. Regularly capped at U-20 level for the US, he was an unused sub in the team that came in 3rd in the North America U-20 championship.

Games: 1 game, 6.30 rating

Midfielders

Jawouk Bafou, Man Utd, 800k valuation:
Jawouk didn't manage to go out on loan and suffered another injury-plagued season (approximately 4 months out with various injuries). He did manage 6 games in the reserves (2 goals, 1 MOM, 7.28 rating) where he showed potential and was also in the Cameroon U-20 team that came in 3rd in the African U-20 championships.

Games: 0

Jake Chippin, Newcastle, 1.5m valuation:
The England U-21 international went out on loan to Crystal Palace where he performed well, picking up 2 Championship Young Player of the Month awards although he needs to cut down on the bookings. He will return to Newcastle with renewed confidence for next season.

Games for Crystal Palace: 28 games, 6 assists, 2 MOM, 9 yellows, 6.99 rating

Deacon Palmieri, Lorient, 1.3m valuation:
Danish U-21 international Deacon (10 caps, 1 goal) played a bunch of games for Lorient Reserves before being sent out on loan to Braga in Portugal, where he performed decently, which resulted in his valuation nearly doubling.

Games for Braga: 8 games, 1 assist, 6.72 rating

Shane Christopher, Dinamo, 1m valuation:
Shane played a few games for Dinamo before being sent out on loan to Internacional in Brazil, where he is beginning to shine. It's going to be an odd season for Shane though because his loan ends in December 2015 and he returns to Dinamo thereafter.

Games for Internacional: 17 games (2 as sub), 2 assists, 6.89 rating

Benton Gale, Man Utd, 3.2m valuation:
Benton continues to train hard to try to force his way into the Man Utd first team but no chances this year. He performed well in the reserves though (26 games, 7 goals, 7 assists, 3 MOM, 7.30 rating).

Games: 0

Michael Samuelle, Leverkusen, 1.3m valuation:
Michael came off the bench a lot for Celtic but the experience probably served him well as he got playing time at a higher level. Leverkusen continues to regard him highly and has sent him out on a season loan to Heracles in the Eredivise.

Games (for Celtic): 15 games (14 as sub), 6.26 rating

Eddie Chilton, Fulham, 700k valuation:
No games for the first team for Eddie this year but he played well in the reserves and U-21 teams (25 games, 3 goals, 8 assists, 4 MOM, 7.24 rating) and will be hoping to get a chance next year.

Games: 0

Dex Morgan, Feyernoord, 1.8m valuation:
Dex was playing decently (earning 1 Eredivise team of the week award)before tearing a calf muscle that kept him out from January to end April. He couldn't get fit in time to be in the squad that won the Dutch Cup. He did also pick up his 2nd cap for the US.

Games: 18 games (6 as sub), 1 goal, 1 assist, 1 MOM, 6.51 rating.

Patrick Hutt, Man City, 1.9m valuation:
The loan to Birmingham probably hasn't worked out as well for Patrick as might be expected as he spent most of his time in the reserves (16 games, 1 goal, 5 assists, 2 reds, 6.88 rating) though he did manage 4 league starts. He was part of the team that came in 3rd in the North American U-20 championships.

Games (for Birmingham): 4 games, 6.88 rating

Kuji Chagulia, Paris St Germain, 3.3m valuation:
Kuji continued to play well for OB and PSG eventually paid 1.9m pounds for him to move to their reserve team during the January transfer window. Kuji was unable to really get traction because he suffered a few injuries and was out for about 2 months.

Games (for OB): 16 games, 1 goal, 1 assist, 7.02 rating

Strikers

Rob Nielsen, Anderlecht, 7.25m valuation:
Rob finally picked up his performances for Lausanne, which gained recognition from the US coach and resulted in Rob becoming a regular in the US national team (9 caps, 1 goal). Anderlecht also came in with a 5.5m bid for him which Lausanne found hard to turn down in the January transfer window. Unfortunately, Rob then tore his hamstring in February and was out for the rest of the season.

Games (Lausanne): 18 games, 7 goals, 1 assist, 2 MOM, 6.86 rating
Games (Anderlecht): 3 games, 2 goals, 7.03 rating

Brian Bennett, Nice, 525k valuation:
Brian was sent out to Turkish side Eskisehirspor for playing time but it was limited. Part of the US U-20 squad that came in 3rd in the North American U-20 championships.

Games: 0

Roger Berisha, Evian, 1.9m valuation:
Roger had a good and bad season. At Stade Brestois, he was part of the team that won promotion to Ligue 2 but he suffered another 3 month injury in January that limited his playing time again. Still, Evian clearly believe in him because they signed him to a contract extension to 2017, giving him more time to prove himself.

Games (for Stade Brestois): 17 games (9 as sub), 3 goals, 1 assist, 1 MOM, 6.89 rating

Season 2015/2016 - September 2015

Goalkeepers

Jace Hunter, Feyernoord, 1.1m valuation:
Jace Hunter starred for England U-20s in the U-20 World Cup, being named the Golden Glove winner and also being part of the title winning English side. He starts the season as a back-up to the first team although he was named the starter in the Dutch Super Cup where Feyernoord beat Ajax 1-0.

Games: 1 game, 1 clean sheet, 6.80 rating

Al Mighty, Valenciennes, 1.4m valuation:
Al looks to be the number 2 keeper for Valenciennes again this year and he has only made reserve team appearances so far (2 games, 2 clean sheets, 1 MOM, 7.4 rating)

Games: 0

Defenders

Robbie Collins, QPR, 275k valuation:
Robbie has been sent out to Celtic on loan for the season where he will be used in a squad rotation system. He will hope to get meaningful games and has already appeared once this season.

Games: 1 game (1 as a sub), 6.00 rating

Flere Imsaho, Feyernoord, 4.1m valuation:
Flere has been rewarded with a 3 year contract worth 1.5 million pounds (11,750 pounds a week) and looks to be a mainstay in the Feyernoord team. He was the man of the match (9.2 rating) and made 9 tackles and 7 interceptions.

Games: 6 games (1 as sub), 2 MOM, 7.98 rating

Rohan Edwards, Galatasaray, 1.3m valuation:
Rohan finally made his first team debut for Galatasaray in the Turkish Super Cup, where he played well (7.6 rating). Hopefully this means for playing time for him in the first team this year.

Games: 2 games, 6.80 rating

David Ginsberg, Rennais, 1.2m valuation:
David continues to be unable to get a first team game, at least at the start of the season. There are rumours that he is unhappy and may be looking for an exit.

Games: 0

Midfielders

Jawouk Bafou, Man Utd, 825k valuation:
Jawouk has been sent out to Fleetwood (in League 1) for the season. He has started brightly there, already appearing in 5 games.

Games: 5 games, 7.06 rating

Jake Chippin, Newcastle, 1.5m valuation:
Jake was part of the England U-20 team that won the U-20 World Cup. Unfortunately, he still can't force his way into the Newcastle first team although he is regarded highly by the coaching staff.

Games: 0

Deacon Palmieri, Lorient, 2.1m valuation:
Deacon has been sent back to the Lorient reserve team in the French 4th division and will be wondering where his playing time is going to come from this year.

Games: 0

Shane Christopher, Dinamo, 1.1m valuation:
Shane has played well at Internacional and that has resulted in him becoming a full South African international (4 caps).

Games for Internacional: 24 games (2 as sub), 2 assists, 6.79 rating

Benton Gale, Man Utd, 3.4m valuation:
Benton continues to be highly regarded by Man Utd management but he's struggling a little now in terms of development. Lack of playing time meant that he wasn't called up to the England U-20 team that won the U-20 World Cup. He's still playing in reserve games (9 games, 4 assists, 7.07 rating).

Games: 0

Michael Samuelle, Leverkusen, 1.3m valuation:
Michael has been starting games for Heracles, where he is on a season's loan, although recent questions have been raised over his discipline when he was sent off in a match.

Games (for Heracles): 3 games, 1 goal, 1 MOM, 1 red, 6.90 rating

Eddie Chilton, Fulham, 1.3m valuation:
Still playing reserve games (5 games, 2 assists, 6.53 rating), Eddie also missed out on the England U-20 World Cup winning team.

Games: 0

Dex Morgan, Feyernoord, 1.1m valuation:
Dex may struggle to find playing time with Feyernoord this year, although he was an unused sub in the team that won the Dutch Super Cup. He's playing more in the reserves this year (6 games, 2 assists, 6.32 rating)

Games: 1 game, 6.10 rating

Patrick Hutt, Man City, 2.3m valuation:
Patrick is back in the Man City reserves although he's playing well there and hoping that will impress the coaches enough to get him first team playing time (9 games, 2 assists, 6.99 rating).

Games: 0

Kuji Chagulia, Paris St Germain, 3.5m valuation:
Kuji has been called up to the Canadian international squad but has not actually been capped yet. He is playing for PSG's reserves in the French 4th division, where he has been excellent (5 games, 1 goal, 1 assist, 1 MOM, 7.72 rating)

Games: 0

Strikers

Rob Nielsen, Anderlecht, 7.5m valuation:
Rob continues to suffer an injury-plagued start to his Anderlect career, tearing his hamstring again and is out for 3 months.

Games: 0

Brian Bennett, Nice, 450k valuation:
Brian is with the Nice team that plays in Ligue 2 but hasn't yet been able to get a first team appearance.

Games: 0

Roger Berisha, Evian (on loan to Dijon FCO), 1.9m valuation:
Roger has been sent out on loan again, this time to Dijon FCO, who play in Ligue 2 (the French 2nd highest level). He has started well with his new team, scoring 3 goals in 7 games.

Games (for Dijon): 7 games, 3 goals, 1 assist, 1 MOM, 7.14 rating

Not really sure what to make of Samuelle yet. The cards are fitting since I've had a lot of players of that style and position have the same problem.

End of Season 2015/2016

Goalkeepers

Jace Hunter, Feyernoord, 1.1m valuation:
Jace played very little this year but he's convinced he will be the number 1 at Feyernoord sooner rather than later. Impressive stats for him though because he kept clean sheets in all the games he played for the first team. Capped 10 times for the England U-21 team.

Games: 3 games (1 as sub), 3 clean sheets, 7.00 rating

Al Mighty, Valenciennes, 1.1m valuation:
Drama in Valenciennes as they were relegated. More importantly, Al has had enough of not playing and put in a formal transfer request. The club promptly slapped a 16million pound price on his head, which seems quite ridiculous for someone who has played so few games. It will be interesting to see how this pans out. Capped 9 times for the Italian U-21s.

Games: 4 games, 4 conceded, 2 clean sheets, 7.25 rating

Defenders

Robbie Collins, QPR, 275k valuation:
Robbie played sparingly for Celtic, largely because he was out for 2 months while on loan. He performed adequately but there will be questions whether he will have his contract renewed (expires next year). 15 caps for the Irish U-21s.

Games (for Celtic): 10 games (3 as sub), 6.51 rating

Flere Imsaho, Feyernoord, 6m valuation:
Flere is developing into a superstar in the Dutch Eredivise. He led the league in interceptions and tackles and was the runner up in the Young Player of the Year award. Already capped 17 times for the US, Flere has been spectacular for Feyernoord this season, averaging a 7.50 rating.

Games: 34 games (3 as sub), 5 assists, 11 yellows, 2 reds, 7.50 rating

Rohan Edwards, Galatasaray, 2.9m valuation:
Rohan just couldn't stay fit long enough to get an extended run in the Galatasaray side. He had various niggling injuries which kept him out for 14 weeks in all so it was hard to get any real continuity. Galatasaray have sent him out on loan to Heerenveen in the Dutch Eredivise for next season. Rohan's contract is really poor, just 500 pounds a week.

Games: 5 games, 6.76 rating

David Ginsberg, Rennais, 3.3m valuation:
David was finally give the chance to play first team football, both at Rennais as well as for the US national team. He played decently for Rennais but there were questions whether he was good enough for the US when he was first called up (he has since disproved those comments). Capped 3 times for the US national team.

Games: 15 games, 3 assists, 2 yellows, 1 red, 6.85 rating

Midfielders

Jawouk Bafou, Man Utd, 775k valuation:
Jawouk played well for Fleetwood when he was able to get on the pitch, though he was out for 2 months with a hip injury from January to March. He returns to Old Trafford without really showing that he is able to take the next step up. Capped 4 times for the Cameroon U-20 team.

Games (for Fleetwood): 14 games (4 as sub), 7.02 rating

Jake Chippin, Newcastle, 2.8m valuation:
Jake must be wondering what he needs to do to get games with the first team, after playing well in the reserves (16 games, 7 assists, 3 MOM, 7.39 rating). He is still highly regarded and will be hoping that next season will be his turn, although there are 3 or 4 central midfielders ahead of him on the depth chart. Capped 21 times for the England U-21s.

Games: 0

Deacon Palmieri, Lorient, 2.1m valuation:
Deacon spent the season on loan at Reims and was part of the team that was promoted to Ligue 1. He played mostly off the bench and was adequate but not exceptional. Capped 13 times for the Danish U-21 team.

Games: 17 games (3 as sub), 1 assist, 6.41 rating

Shane Christopher, Dinamo, 3.1m valuation:
While Shane is well regarded at Dinamo, the tension is growing as he only managed 7 substitute appearances for the first team, in part because he only returned to Croatia after a year's loan at Internacional.

Games (for Internacional): 24 games (2 as sub), 2 assists, 6.79 rating
Games (for Dinamo): 7 games (7 as sub), 1 goal, 1 assist, 6.90 rating

Benton Gale, Man Utd, 4.3m valuation:
Benton played the season in the reserves again and did well (27 games, 1 goal, 17 assists, 7.23 rating) although he has begun to sit on the substitute's bench for Man Utd, which included being an unused sub in the League Cup finals (Man Utd won 2-1) and his first medal with the club. Capped twice for the England U-21s.

Games: 1 game, 7.10 rating

Michael Samuelle, Leverkusen, 1.3m valuation:
Michael had his season cut short when he broke his leg in September and this kept him out until the tailend of the season. He was quite average in his performances for Heracles and will return to Leverkusen to see what happens next year. Capped 13 times for the Swiss U-21 team

Games (for Heracles): 14 games (2 as sub), 2 goals, 3 assists, 1 MOM, 7 yellows, 1 red, 6.57 rating

Eddie Chilton, Fulham, 2m valuation:
Eddie was thinking it was going to be another wasted year until the latter part of the season when he was finally given a chance and he played quite well. This hopefully means more chances next season for the England U-21 international (5 caps).

Games: 5 games, 1 assist, 1 MOM, 6.80 rating

Dex Morgan, Feyernoord, 1.9m valuation:
Dex played very little for the first team, even though it's recognised that he has talent. This has alerted 3 clubs that he may be unhappy, including PSV. Capped twice for the US national team.

Games: 6 games (2 as sub), 6.50 rating

Patrick Hutt, Man City, 1.8m valuation:
You can't shake the feeling that Patrick may never make it at the highest level because of injuries. Once again he was out for an extended period (a total of 5 months, slightly more than half the season) with a torn hamstring, a pulled hamstring and strained knee ligaments. Man City hasn't given up on him yet but time may be running out. He played 21 games in the reserves (4 goals, 6 assists, 1 MOM, 7.11 rating) and has 20 caps for the US U-20 team.

Games: 0

Kuji Chagulia, Paris St Germain, 4.2m valuation:
Kuji had a great year in the French 4th division with the PSG reserves (21 games, 6 goals, 3 assists, 6 MOM, 7.56 rating) and will hope that he gets first team action next season. Capped 3 times for the Canadian U-20 team.

Games: 0

Strikers

Rob Nielsen, Anderlecht, 7.5m valuation:
Rob recovered from his torn hamstring quite nicely, managing 8 goals in his first full season with Anderlecht. Considered a first team regular with both Anderlecht and the US (15 caps, 3 goals).

Games: 28 games (18 as sub), 8 goals, 2 assists, 6.73 rating

Brian Bennett, Nice, 575k valuation:
Brian is beginning to get some first team games, making 6 substitute appearances for Nice in Ligue 2 this year and also managed 10 goals in 27 games for the reserves. Capped 27 times for the US U-20 team but only 4 goals there.

Games: 6 games (6 as sub), 1 goal, 6.72 rating

Roger Berisha, Evian, 1.9m valuation:
A good solid season from Roger for Dijon FCO in Ligue 2 as he scored 10 goals in 40 appearances. Capped 5 times for the Swiss U-21 team.

Games (for Dijon): 40 games (20 as sub), 10 goals, 4 assists, 2 MOM, 6.80 rating

Contract's up at the end of the upcoming season I believe, be interesting to see if they still think I'm worth keeping.

Start of Season 2016/2017:

Goalkeepers

Jace Hunter, Feyernoord, 1.1m valuation:
In all likelihood, Jace will likely continue to be the number 2 keeper this year. What's interesting though is that his contract is up at the end of the season so there are questions as to what he will do next. Jace was the number 2 keeper in the England U-21 team that won the European U-21 championships.

Games: 0

Al Mighty, Valenciennes, 975k valuation:
The transfer situation may get really ugly as Valenciennes increased the price tag on Al to 23 million pounds. Will Al need to sit out his contract, which only expires in 2018?

Games: 0

Defenders

Robbie Collins, QPR, 275k valuation:
Robbie's contract is up at the end of the season. Will QPR want to sign their hot prospect to a new contract when he hasn't really had any chances with them?

Games: 0

Flere Imsaho, Feyernoord, 6.25m valuation:
Flere was the Feyernoord supporter's player of the year for 2015/2016 and is incredibly popular. Clearly one of the first names down on the team sheet.

Games: 0

Rohan Edwards, Galatasaray, 2.8m valuation:
Rohan is considered a key player for Heerenveen so hopefully that means more playing time for him. His terrible contract only expires in 2018, one that pays him just 525 pounds a week.

Games: 0

David Ginsberg, Rennais, 4.3m valuation:
David is a rotation player at Rennais this season. There are still regular doubts in the media as to whether he is good enough to play for the US national team.

Games: 0

Midfielders

Jawouk Bafou, Man Utd, 675k valuation:
Jawouk has been sent out to Fleetwoord again for another season. Is this a sign that Man Utd have written him off or is it just to get him more play time? His contract also expires at the end of this season.

Games (for Fleetwood): 0

Jake Chippin, Newcastle, 2.9m valuation:
This may be Jake's season to really start his Newcastle career. At the start of the season, he looks to be one of the midfielders sitting on the bench so hopefully he will get some games. Part of the England U-21 team that won the European U-21 championships.

Games: 0

Deacon Palmieri, Lorient, 2.1m valuation:
Deacon is sent out on loan again this year, to Nice in Ligue 2, where Brian Bennett is as well. Deacon is regarded as a key player so that should mean plenty of meaningful games.

Games: 0

Shane Christopher, Dinamo, 2.9m valuation:
Considered a backup to the first team, Shane suffered a back injury at the start of the season and will miss some of the early weeks. His contract expires at the end of this season.

Games: 0

Benton Gale, Man Utd, 3.9m valuation:
Benton is being mentored by Michael Carrick (now 35 years old) so hopefully that means he is being groomed for the future still. Lack of games meant that he wasn't part of the England U-21 side. Contract expires at the end of this season.

Games: 0

Michael Samuelle, Leverkusen, 1m valuation:
Michael has been sent back down to the Leverkusen reserve side and he is yet another player whose contract expires at the end of this season and with a potentially major decision to make.

Games: 0

Eddie Chilton, Fulham, 2.6m valuation:
Eddie has been given the number 10 shirt and been told he is part of the first team rotation this season.

Games: 0

Dex Morgan, Feyernoord, 2.1m valuation:
In a surprising move, Feyernoord was prepared to loan out Dex to rivals PSV, where he will start the season sitting on the substitute's bench.

Games: 0

Patrick Hutt, Man City, 1.6m valuation:
Patrick spends another year with the U-21 squad and this is a make-or-break year for him as his contract ends at the end of the season. Gut feel is that he may not be renewed due to his injury issues.

Games: 0

Kuji Chagulia, Paris St Germain, 4.3m valuation:
Kuji will start the season with the PSG reserves again but is still viewed as a hot prospect for the team.

Games: 0

Strikers

Rob Nielsen, Anderlecht, 7.75m valuation:
Rob is obviously a key player for Anderlecht but there are rumours that Sampdoria is very interested in signing him.

Games: 0

Brian Bennett, Nice, 525k valuation:
Brian is viewed as a key player for Nice. Question then is why a new contract hasn't been signed yet.

Games: 0

Roger Berisha, Evian, 1.8m valuation:
Is this Roger's year for Evian? He has been told he's part of the first team and is looking forward to the season.

Games: 0

End of Season - 2016/2017:


Goalkeepers

Jace Hunter, Feyernoord, 2.6m valuation:
Jace played more games than expected and performed well in those appearances, also winning 2 team of the week awards. His performances have led to some speculation that a bigger club may want to sign him up in the future.

Games: 18 games (2 as sub), 14 conceded, 9 clean sheets, 6.88 rating

Al Mighty, Valenciennes, 600k valuation:
Al and Valenciennes finally worked out their differences and he came off the transfer list. Game time was limited although he did manage 5 appearances.

Games: 5 games (1 as sub), 5 goals conceded, 1 clean sheet, 7.04 rating

Defenders

Robbie Collins, QPR, 750k valuation:
What a difference a year makes as Robbie cements a place in the first team, making 33 first team appearances and also being called up to the Irish national team (2 caps). He also managed to win 1 Championship team of the week award.

Games: 33 games (2 as sub), 1 goal, 2 MOM, 6.81 rating

Flere Imsaho, Feyernoord, 9m valuation:
Flere again fails to win the Dutch Young Player of the Year, losing out to a striker that scored 30 goals in 31 games. Still Flere had another excellent season and PSG is reportedly interested in signing him.

Games: 48 games, 3 goals, 4 assists, 10 MOM, 3 yellows, 1 red, 7.52 rating

Rohan Edwards, Galatasaray, 2.8m valuation:
In surprising news, Rohan was named the captain for the Heerenveen squad where he spent the season on loan. He was quite good as well, averaging a 6.81 rating.

Games: 23 games (1 as sub), 2 assists, 1 MOM, 3 6.81 rating

David Ginsberg, Rennais, 4m valuation:
David played more this year but his performances dropped from last year (6.53 rating compared to 6.85 last year). Capped 9 times for the US.

Games: 0

Midfielders

Jawouk Bafou, Man Utd, 875k valuation:
Well Jawouk renewed his contract until 2020 with Man Utd but injuries again blighted his season as he was out for 7 months with a torn hamstring and a torn calf muscle. He did manage some appearances for Fleetwood but they were relegated.

Games (for Fleetwood): 8 games (2 as sub), 6.63 rating

Jake Chippin, Newcastle, 2.9m valuation:
Once again another year of limited appearances, just 2 for the season for Newcastle. He isn't happy but he's not unhappy enough to force his way out yet.

Games: 2, 6.65 rating

Deacon Palmieri, Lorient, 3.8m valuation:
Deacon did play in 27 games this year for Nice but his performances were criticised at times. It's unclear if this season impressed Lorient enough to keep him in the first team next season.

Games (for Nice): 27 games (2 as sub), 1 goal, 3 assists, 5 yellows, 6.48 rating

Shane Christopher, Dinamo, 150k valuation:
Interesting situation developing here as Shane has refused to sign a new contract with Dinamo. Looks like he will be a free agent shortly and fingers crossed he finds a club.

Games: 22 games (17 as sub), 2 assists, 6.78 rating

Benton Gale, Man Utd, 6.5m valuation:
Benton was given a nice contract all the way until 2020 and has been promoted to a backup. He actually managed 3 first team appearances this year.

Games: 3 games, 1 assist, 6.72 rating

Michael Samuelle, Leverkusen, 1.4m valuation:
Michael was loaned out to Torino in Serie A this year but the loan was a failure as he hardly played any games.

Games: 5 games (3 as sub), 6.15 rating

Eddie Chilton, Fulham, 2.6m valuation:
Eddie will be disappointed because he wasn't really given that many chances this season, just 12 games. He is still happy to stay at Fulham however.

Games: 12 games (3 as sub), 3 assists, 3 yellows, 6.68 rating

Dex Morgan, Feyernoord, 1.9m valuation:
Dex was given some chances at PSV where he made 19 appearances. However, his lack of regular playing time meant that the US has not called him for a while.

Games: 19 games (11 as sub), 1 goal, 1 assist, 6.42 rating

Patrick Hutt, Man City, 76k valuation:
Patrick's time with Man City is most likely coming to an end as he has been put on the transfer list for practically nothing and his contract also expires shortly.

Games: 0

Kuji Chagulia, Paris St Germain, 4.6m valuation:
Another good season for the reserves (24 games, 7 goals, 5 assists, 4 MOM, 2 yellows, 7.40 rating) and Kuji will continue to hope for more playing time next season with the first team.

Games: 0

Strikers

Rob Nielsen, Marseille, 17m valuation:
Rob had a good season with Anderlecht and continued to draw attention from other clubs. At the end of the season, Anderlecht finally conceded defeat in their attempt to keep Rob and sold him to Marseille for 9.75m. He won 3 team of the week awards and a player of the month award with Anderlecht.

Games: 46 games (6 as sub), 21 goals, 4 assists, 2 MOM, 6.91 rating

Brian Bennett, Nice, 750k valuation:
Brian went from being a key player to a first team player this season and he mainly came off the bench. This made it hard for him to get into goalscoring form unfortunately.

Games: 26 games (22 as sub), 2 goals,. 4 yellows, 6.56 rating

Roger Berisha, Evian, 3.6m valuation:
Roger enjoyed his first team appearances this season but he will be disappointed at the criticism he received from ex-Evian players who wondered if he was good enough to start. He will be hoping to build on this season and improving his goal scoring record next year.

Games: 30 games (10 as sub), 4 goals, 2 assists, 6.47 rating

Start of Season 2017/2018

2 players without a club and a record transfer before the start of the season.

Goalkeepers

Jace Hunter, Feyernoord, 2.7m valuation:
More of the same is likely for Jace this year, i.e. sitting on the bench. Rumours that he will be leaving continue to surface although no club has actually come forward as yet.

Games: 0

Al Mighty, Valenciennes, 475k valuation:
Similar to Jace, Al is also reportedly unsettled at Valenciennes and will be hoping a club comes by with a good offer.

Games: 0

Defenders

Robbie Collins, QPR, 750k valuation:
Robbie is a fan favourite, named as the QPR supporter's player of the year last season. He is supposed to be a first team regular this year.

Games: 0

Flere Imsaho, Monaco, 14.25m valuation:
Monaco and PSG both came in with big bids to win the services of Flere and he eventually chose to play for Monaco. The transfer fee was 21 million pounds and is a Feyernoord record. This is going to be an exciting new adventure for Flere as he joins the current French champions.

Games: 0

Rohan Edwards, Galatasaray, 2.6m valuation:
Rohan is back in Turkey and in the Galatasaray reserves. His contract is up at the end of the season and he must be wondering whether he should re-sign, considering the lack of opportunities he has been given.

Games: 0

David Ginsberg, Rennais, 4.2m valuation:
David is now named as a first team member of the squad and is hopeful for a breakout year.

Games: 0

Midfielders

Jawouk Bafou, Man Utd, 900k valuation:
Jawouk has been loaned out to Rostock in the German Second Division where he is supposed to be a key player. Unfortunately, he broke his cheekbone during pre-season training.

Games (for Rostock): 0

Jake Chippin, Newcastle, 2.6m valuation:
Jake has been informed that he will be used in a squad rotation basis. However, it's unclear how that will change since he missed out on the entire pre-season with a broken ankle.

Games: 0

Deacon Palmieri, Lorient, 3.8m valuation:
Deacon looks like he might be kept around at Lorient this season as there are no indications he is going out on loan. To be used in a squad rotation basis.

Games: 0

Shane Christopher, free:
Shane and Dinamo could not agree on a new contract and he has been released from the club. He will be looking to sign on with someone that can further his career.

Games: 0

Benton Gale, Man Utd, 6.5m valuation:
Benton is still listed as a backup to the first team and is also available to go out on loan. He has had a very odd career so far, being highly rated internally yet not ever really getting the chance to play.

Games: 0

Michael Samuelle, Leverkusen, 1.4m valuation:
Michael is in the Leverkusen reserves and it looks like things might pass him by. He was supposed to go out on loan to Nurnberg but the deal fell through at the last minute.

Games: 0

Eddie Chilton, Fulham, 2.7m valuation:
Still slated as a first team player, Eddie will hope he gets more playing time this season.

Games: 0

Dex Morgan, Feyernoord, 2.5m valuation:
Dex is back at Feyernoord and appears to be happy again. Hopefully he will get some games as he is used in a squad rotation basis.

Games: 0

Patrick Hutt, free:
As expected, Patrick was released by Man City, this part of his career cut short by injuries. It's really unclear what chances he will get but fingers crossed for him.

Games: 0

Kuji Chagulia, Paris St Germain, 4.2m valuation:
In some surprising news, Kuji has been placed on the transfer list by PSG for 1.2 million pounds. He has never had a chance to prove himself after his move from OB and this will be a new hurdle to overcome.

Games: 0

Strikers

Rob Nielsen, Marseille, 16.25m valuation:
Rob is considered a key player for Marseille and they will be looking to him to try and push Monaco this season. There has been some media comments that he isn't good enough yet but time will tell.

Games: 0

Brian Bennett, Nice, 775k valuation:
Brian is back to being a key player for the Nice team and has signed a new contract that will bring him to 2019.

Games: 0

Roger Berisha, Evian, 4.3m valuation:
Roger is considered a first team regular for Evian now and is looking forward to the new season.

Games: 0

End of Season 2017/2018

Goalkeepers

Jace Hunter, Feyernoord, 3.1m valuation:
A good season for Jace as he finally won the starting position midway through the season and was integral in Feyernoord winning the Eredivise, breaking Ajax's stranglehold.

Games: 25 game, 26 conceded, 8 clean sheets, 6.57 rating

Al Mighty, Valenciennes, 35.5k valuation:
Well Al's time with Valenciennes is coming to an end. He hasn't been able to agree on a new contract with the club and will be a free agent soon. He did play some games for the club and performed well when called upon.

Games: 15 games (2 as sub), 13 conceded, 6 clean sheets, 1 MOM, 6.96 rating

Defenders

Robbie Collins, QPR, 2.1m valuation:
Named as the vice-captain for the QPR team, Robbie played a lot for the Rs this past year (54 games in all). Highly popular with the fans, they may be distressed because there are rumours he may be leaving. Is now able to play at leftback as well.

Games: 54 games, 1 goal, 2 assists, 6.72 rating

Flere Imsaho, Monaco, 20m valuation:
Flere found himself not being the regular starter in Monaco this year although he did feature in quite a few games. He achieved a lot in his first season though, winning the league title and the league cup with Monaco.

Games: 35 games (18 as sub), 1 assist, 1 MOM, 7.01 rating

Rohan Edwards, Twente, ??m valuation:
Rohan's nightmare in Turkey finally comes to an end as he refused to sign a new contract and signed a pre-contract with Twente in Holland. He was never given sufficient opportunity in Turkey and he will be looking forward to a new chapter in his life.

Games: 6 games (3 as sub), 6.52 rating

David Ginsberg, Rennais, 3.7m valuation:
David suffered a double hernia and a broken collarbone, each injury putting him out for 7 weeks. This meant he played fewer games than expected but he's now regarded as a key player in the Rennais squad. There is some tension though as Rennais repeatedly asked him to re-do his contract at a lower wage but David refused.

Games: 25 games (3 as sub), 2 assists, 1 MOM, 7 yellows, 6.66 rating

Midfielders

Jawouk Bafou, Man Utd, 925k valuation:
Jawouk had his longest run of games this season, managing 27 first team games (although quite a few were as a substitute). Hopefully this begins to turn things around for his career.

Games (for Rostock): 27 games (19 as sub), 1 assist, 6.51 rating

Jake Chippin, Newcastle, 115k valuation:
How quickly things change as Jake was transfer listed and he's definitely on his way out of Newcastle. He's very disappointed and will want to find a new club as soon as he can.

Games: 2 games, 6.85 rating

Deacon Palmieri, Lorient, 2.6m valuation:
Deacon featured in the Lorient first team this season but is now looking for a way out after Lorient was relegated in 20th position. The club has slapped a 26.5 million pound price on his head, craziness!

Games: 19 games (3 as sub), 2 assists, 6.52 rating

Shane Christopher, free:
Shane spent the season out of football as he couldn't find a taker for his services. The good thing is that apparently Rostov, a Russian club, is considering offering him a contract.

Games: 0

Benton Gale, Man Utd, 8.75m valuation:
The time has come for Benton to say goodbye to Old Trafford as he was placed on the transfer list. This always seemed like it was about to happen as he could never break into the first team. His asking price is 6.5 million.

Games: 2 games, 6.40 rating

Michael Samuelle, Leverkusen, 1.6m valuation:
Michael spent the season in the lower tiers of German football again (38 games, 2 goals, 7 assists, 1 MOM, 16 yellow cards, 1 red, 6.63 rating). Clearly frustrated as evidenced by the 16 yellow cards.

Games: 0

Eddie Chilton, Fulham, 3.1m valuation:
Eddie is very unhappy at Fulham because, for yet another season, he has had very limited playtime. Rumour mill is that he will put in a transfer request soon.

Games: 11 games (4 as sub), 1 goal, 1 assist, 6.83 rating

Dex Morgan, Feyernoord, 2.5m valuation:
Used in a squad rotation basis, Dex is happy again at Feyernoord but he must be frustrated that he missed out on a league medal because he only made 9 appearances in the Eredivise (need 10 appearances to get a medal). Still, he is apparently held in high regard by management.

Games: 14 games (4 as sub), 2 assists, 6.55 rating

Patrick Hutt, Xolos Tijuana:
The good thing is that Patrick managed to get signed by a club, Xolos Tijuana, who play in the Mexican first division, where he is regarded as a key player.

Games: 10 games, 2 goals, 1 assist, 1 MOM, 6.87 rating

Kuji Chagulia, free
Kuji has since been released by PSV and is now looking for a new club. Hopefully soon.

Games: 0

Strikers

Rob Nielsen, Marseille, 17m valuation:
A decent season with Marseille as he managed to score 14 goals in all competitions. Also has 8 goals in 39 caps for the US.

Games: 45 games (14 as sub), 14 goals, 3 assists, 2 MOM, 6.74 rating

Brian Bennett, Nice, 650k valuation:
Brian had a disappointing season with Nice as he failed to live up to expectations and has been pushed back down in status to be a rotation player.

Games: 22 games (16 as sub), 3 goals, 6.60 rating

Roger Berisha, Evian, 4.6m valuation:
Roger didn't get as many chances as he would have liked although the club still looks at him as a first team regular.

Games: 16 games (12 as sub), 3 goals, 1 assist, 6.75 rating

Bah! I never liked Newcastle anyway. I assume the asking price has dropped so low as I'll soon be out of contract, hopefully some offers will come in once I'm a free agent.
