My starting lineup and top substitutes as we begin the new season. Nesbitt will be a starter once he finishes his suspension.

Third League: Chattanooga FC (0-0-0) at Des Moines Menace (0-0-0)


This one seems hopeless for a bit. They play 6 defenders and have a terrific keeper. Atkins first two chances are low% shots that are easily thwarted. Chattanooga uses a special skill to maneuver around our defense. Granger is able to make one amazing save, but the other gets by him. They commit a foul late in the game and on the ensuin free kick, Lance gets the ball to Atkins in great position and he scores a goal on the last turn of the game.

Final Score: Des Moines 1, Chattanooga 1
Goal: Atkins
Top Three: Lance, Atkins, Jennings

Edmonds - level 19.
Venegas - level 17.

I finally find a decent Forward on the transfer list.

*Forsythe is a lvl 21 with 30 Acc and 23 Ctr. More importantly, he's only 26 and costs $12,435.

*This means it is time to say goodbye to Atkins. I can sell him for $78,600. This may increase our struggles, but it's time to look to the future.

Third League: FC Tucson (1-0-1, 7th) at Des Moines Menace (0-1-1, 9th)


Heath and Granger have a great game stopping several FC Tucson attacks. We get a couple great looks at the goal, but can't convert until late, when a Barajas pass puts Seymour in erfect position and he converts. Sadly they immediately score on the next set of turns to steal a draw.

Final Score: FC Tucson 1, Des Moines 1
Goal: Seymour
Top Three: Heath, Levesque, Granger

Third League: Des Moines Menace (0-2-1, 9th) at Bethlehem Steel (0-2-1, 10th)

I had to sit Heath due to fatigue. This really hurt as we don't have a sweeper to get in the line of fire. They convert a one on one opportunity midway through the first half. We only manage one shot on goal because Seymour got stripped several times.

Final Score: Bethlehem 1, Des Moines 0
Goal: None
Top Three: Nesbitt, Edmonds, Granger

Mcgill - lvl 11.

We had several positional upgrades.

Granger - Every level he gains will now increase his defense by 2.
Nesbitt - Has now learned the Central Midfielder position.
Lance - 30% increased XP.
Baraja - Increased popularity. This should help stave off supporter loss a little bit.

Third League: FC Montreal (1-0-3, 9th) at Des Moines Menace (0-2-2, 10th)

Levesque was so dominant in this one that I may consider selling Heath. As a universal defender, he automatically tries to intercept shots that go within one tile of him, which makes him formidable in the middle of the line. We still can't get much of an attack going, but neither can Montreal.

Final Score: FC Montreal 0, Des Moines 0
Goal: None
Top Three: Levesque, Barajas, Mcgill

Barajas - lvl 27.
Levesque - lvl 26.

Third League: Des Moines Menace (0-3-2, 11th) at Real Monarchs (2-0-3, 5th)

Real Monarchs score two quick goals and it looks ridiculously hopeless. They almost get a 3rd, but Granger akes a ridiculous save. We finally get on the board early in the 2nd half when Seymour gets behind the defense and converts a difficult shot. This gives us some momentum and we get two more chances, but we can't find the equalizer.

Final Score: Real Monarchs 2, Des Moines 1
Goal: Seymour
Top Three: Heath, Nesbitt, Seymour

Lance - lvl 28.
Granger - lvl 19.
Dyson - lvl 19.

*Barajas and Mcgill retire.

Third League: Wilmington (2-0-4, 8th) at Des Moines Menace (0-3-3, 12th)

The pain for selling Atkins is very apparent now. Neither Seymour nor Forsythe are good enough to take good shots against Third League defenders and keepers. Wilmington scores off a corner and holds on for a victory as we miss shot after shot.

Final Score: Wilmington 1, Des Moines 0
Goal: None
Top Three: Nesbitt, Lance, Levesque

Third League: Des Moines Menace (0-3-4, 12th) at AFC Cleveland (4-1-2, 3rd)

AFC Cleveland is the team that bought Atkins. Sure enough, he bags an early goal. Our defense holds well after that, but Seymour misses two shots where he had good chances and our losing streak continues.

Final Score: AFC Cleveland 1, Des Moines 0
Goal: None
Top Three: Heath, Venegas, Jennings

Venegas - lvl 20.
Jennings - lvl 12.
Dyson - lvl 21.

Venegas has learned the RD position and Dyson has learned the LD position.

Third League: Pittsburgh Riverhounds (4-1-3, 5th) at Des Moines Menace (0-3-5, 12th)

I thought we were gonna be able to hold on to a draw here as we managed to hold them to a scoreless first half. Then early in the 2nd half, they utilize the Layoff Pass skill to get it right in front of our keeper. They easily convert. On the next possession, we almost equalize, but Seymour misses again. Then Pittsburgh hits a ridiculous goal from outside the box that went through 2 defenders and the keeper.

Final Score: Pittsburgh 2, Des Moines 0
Goal: None
Top Three: Nesbitt, Levesque, Venegas

Bleh. Well, at least we figured out how to score on a cross. Unfortunately, Phoenix does this twice and we have no hope of a counterattack. I'm not surprised that we will likely be relegated, but I'mmore worried about our supporter exodus.

Final Score: Pittsburgh 3, Des Moines 1
Goal: Seymour
Top Three: Nesbitt, Seymour, Lance

Edmonds - lvl 20.

Third League: St Louis FC (8-1-1, 1st) at Des Moines Menace (0-3-7, 12th)

We hold them scoreless for the first half and actually manage to control the action. The 2nd half is a different story. They get behind our defense twice and Granger can't stop the shots. Several chances for Forsythe, but he still can't find his first goal.

Final Score: St. Louis 2, Des Moines 0
Goal: Seymour
Top Three: Nesbitt, Levesque, Seymour

Seymour - lvl 27.
Heath - lvl 20.

Levesque now gets 70% extra XP. This is in addition to the 70% he already gets from the coaching bonus.

Prestige Cup - Round of 32: Ottawa Fury at Des Moines Menace

Just what we need: a 2nd league team. Again, one goal is enough against us as our attack is pathetic and we have no ability to win the ball back at midfield.


Final Score: St. Louis 1, Des Moines 0
Goal: Seymour
Top Three: Nesbitt, Seymour, Granger

Prestige Cup - Round of 32: Des Moines Menace at Ottawa Fury

We actually take the lead in this one when a Seymour cross is headed in by Forsythe for his first goal. However, they immediately, come back to tie it up. We get another cross attempt, but Forsythe can't get to it. We're able to hold a great team to a draw, but it's not enough to help us advance as we lose the aggregate 2-1.

Final Score: St. Louis 1, Des Moines 1
Goal: Forsythe
Top Three: Forsythe, Nesbitt, Heath

Levesque - lvl 27.
Forsythe - lvl 22.
Nesbitt - lvl 19.
Jennings - lvl 13.

Seymour gets a new specialization level and I make him a popular player to stop the supporter bleeding. We're down to 61 from a high of 143 at the beginning of the season.

Winter break activities

*I renew Edmonds for 3 yrs, $5,769. This is a bargain as he will cost much more very soon.

*I sell Heath for $99,900. Yep, it's rebuilding time.

*Seymour has 28 days left on his contract. I will sell him towards the end of that, just so he can help keep my supporters happy until then. (Unless I upgrade someone else like that.

*My youth pull is the best one yet - a lvl 9 player named Guy who is 17 yrs old and already has a 20 in Defense. I will make sure he gets playing time.

*I extend Forsythe for 3 yrs, $5,769.

*I buy Hensley for $48,600. He's a midfielder with 36 in passing and 31 in control. He also has the Slide tackle skill and is only 26 yrs old. This is the guy I've been looking for all along.

*I buy Huffman for $6,870. He's a lvl 21 defender with 35 in defense and 29 in control.

*I buy Yoder for $5,580. He's a 27 yr old universal forward with 32 accuracy. Will fit right in once Seymour leaves and should be good enough for our inevitable return to the amateur league.

*After all of this, I'm left with $9,219, but will have more once I sell Seymour.

*I upgrade the Youth Academy for $110,000. This means every youth pull will be lvl 10-20.

We definitely play like a better team in the midfield. We're able to maintain possession and stop counterattacks. But we still can't penetrate opposing defenses. We had a chance to win it on the last turn of the game, but Forsythe misses his shot.

Final Score: Des Moines 0, Chattanooga 0
Goals: None
Top Three: Granger, Nesbitt, Hensley

Oh have I had this season. Twice at this point And it sucks while it's happening. Take your lumps. Start playing the younger guys you want to get more experience especially if you haven't built up your bench coach so everyone does. Make all three subs etc. You'll be thrilled next year when you can sell some of your older players because the young ones are good enough to win in Amateur level and are still growing (on cheap contracts and will be good enough for Lvl 3 the year after.

Yeah, that's what I'm planning now. What sucks is that you lose a ton of experience in the Amateur league (14 games instead of 22).

I try crosses on my first two possessions, but neither are successful. K-W scores on a ridiculous shot right before the half for more frustration. Thankfully, Seymour finally breaks through late in the 2nd half with a great shot that gets by 2 defenders and the keeper.

Final Score: Des Moines 1, K-W United 1
Goals: Seymour
Top Three: Nesbitt, Seymour, Huffman

Hensley - lvl 24

Third League: Des Moines Menace (0-5-8, 12th) at FC Tucson (3-4-6, 11th)

Our improved midfield continues to make its presence known. We control possession for 62%. Granger does have to make one great stop in a one on one position. But Seymour breaks through from the flanks with a goal before halftime. He does the same right after the 2nd half kickoff. I can't remember the last time we had 2 goals. Levesque dominates at defense and prevents any more shots from getting through and we hold on for our first Third League victory!

Final Score: Des Moines 2, FC Tucson 0
Goals: Seymour 2
Top Three: Seymour, Nesbitt, Hensley

Dyson - lvl 22
Guy - lvl 10

Nesbitt gets a specialization upgrade and I make him popular to help with Supporters and also to get to the sale bonus tree.

That will be Seymour's last game with the team. I sell him for $80,600 and Yoder takes his place.

Our new signee Yoder finds the net just after halftime to give us a 1-0 lead. Our defense is pretty solid, even without Venegas, and Granger only has to make one save. Two game winning streak and we're now only 3 pts away from avoiding relegation.

Final Score: Des Moines 2, FC Tucson 0
Goals: Yoder
Top Three: Yoder, Nesbitt, Guy

Granger - lvl 20
Nesbitt - lvl 20
Jennings - lvl 15 and has learned the Central Midfield role.

As expected, they handle us pretty easily. They score two first half goals and we miss a great chance to pull one back when Lance sends the worst cross possible (rolled a 1 out of 53). The AI wisely attacks our young youth pull Guy.

Final Score: Montreal 2, Des Moines 0
Goals: None
Top Three: Nesbitt, Dyson, Lance

Guy - lvl 11.

Third League: Real Monarchs (7-3-6, 5th) at Des Moines Menace (2-5-9, 12th)

We actually take the midway through the 1st half as Forsythe gets great position on a corner and heads it in. They manage to equalize just after the half, but we do a good job of putting pressure on them. Yoder has a chance to win it on the last turn of the game, but the keeper easily stops the shot. I don't know if we can avoid relegation, but we're definitely a better team.

Final Score: Des Moines 1, Real Monarchs 1
Goals: Forsythe
Top Three: Hensley, Forsythe, Edmonds

Edmonds - lvl 23

Des Moines Menace (2-6-9, 12th) at Wilmington (4-3-10, 10th)

Wilmington takes an early lead on a great strike that Granger had no hope of stopping. However, I've finally mastered the crossing/heading mechanics and Kelley equalizes on a header midway through the 2nd half. Late in the game, Huffman stops a counterattack and Nesbitt is able to send a long pass to Forsythe behind the defense. The keeper stops his shot, but we win the corner. Lance sends an amazing corner, which Forsythe heads in for the winner! Huffman strips their forward before he can take the final shot.

Final Score: Des Moines 2, Wilmington 1
Goals: Kelley, Forsythe
Top Three: Forsythe, Nesbitt, Kelley

Levesque - lvl 28
Forsythe - lvl 23
Kelley - lvl 15
Guy - lvl 12

With 4 matches to play, we are only 1 pt away from avoiding relegation. Can we pull off the impossible? It will be difficult, as our matches are against #1, #2, #5, and#7.

AFC Cleveland (8-2-8, 7th) at Des Moines Menace (3-6-9, 11th)

A wet field makes passing very inaccurate for both teams. We are able to completely shut down our old foe Atkins, but I have trouble getting it out of our own defensive end to generate any decent attack.

Final Score: Des Moines 0, AFC Cleveland 0
Goals: None
Top Three: Hensley, Huffman, Dyson

Hensley - lvl 26 and has now learned the universal midfielder role.
Huffman - lvl 23
Venegas - lvl 21

Relegation battle:

We move up to 10th, but Wilmington's victory puts us now 2 pts out of relegation instead of 1.

FC Tucson - 20
Wilmington - 18
--------------
Des Moines - 18
K-W United - 16
Bethlehem Steel - 15

Des Moines Menace (3-7-9, 10th) at Pittsburgh Riverhounds (12-2-5, 2nd)

Our defensive line continues to play incredibly well, shutting down a strong Pittsburgh team in the 1st half. 17 yr old Fox actually intercepts two shots on goal. We manage to take the lead early in the 2nd when Forsythe gets around the defense and beats the keeper! I make a tactical blunder by ignoring my defensive line structure and they're able to score on a counterattack. We stop their final attack and are able to launch one of our own, when Hensley gets the ball to Forsythe in great position and his superb strike wins it on the last turn of the game! What an upset!

Final Score: Des Moines 2, Pittsburgh 1
Goals: Forsythe 2
Top Three: Forsythe, Nesbitt, Guy

Lance - lvl 29
Huffman - lvl 25 and learns the Central Defender role.
Dyson - lvl 23

Guy learns the amateur defender role.
Lance now gets 70% bonus XP.


Relegation battle:

K-W United won and Wilmington drew, so there is a 3 way battle for the final non-relegation spot. We're losing the tiebreak on both Goal diff and total goals.

FC Tucson - 21
Wilmington - 19
--------------
K-W United - 19
Des Moines - 19
Bethlehem Steel - 15

Phoenix Rising (10-2-8, 5th) at Des Moines Menace (4-7-9, 10th)

Well, all good things must come to an end. Our defense gets embarassed in this one and we can't manage a single shot on goal. Their FW McCullough scores one in the 1st half and then picks up two more for the hat trick. What's worse is that Hensley (who has been so valuable during our run) picked up a red card and will be out for the last game.

Final Score: Phoenix 3, Des Moines 0
Goals: None
Top Three: Nesbitt, Hensley, Levesque

Guy - lvl 13

Relegation battle:

K-W United and Wilmington both managed victories. Our avoiding relegation chances are pretty much shot due to the tiebreakers and the fact that we play St. Louis next.

FC Tucson - 24
Wilmington - 22
--------------
K-W United - 22
Des Moines - 19
Bethlehem Steel - 15

Des Moines Menace (4-7-10, 10th) at Saint Louis FC (14-4-3, 1st)

A cruel way to finish the season. St. Louis is just too good for us. They score two easy first half goals. I don't shut us down and for our part, we put heavy pressure on in the 2nd half. Most of the half is played on their side of the pitch, but we can't break through for any goals. It was a nice run in the 2nd half of the season, but we'll have to dominate the Amateur league and come back here.

Final Score: St. Louis 2, Des Moines 0
Goals: None
Top Three: Lance, Jennings, Forsythe

Offseason

*For my sponsor, I pick Electrohouse, who will give me $33 for every goal and $116 for every home victory.

*I upgrade my defender coach once again. They now get 100% extra XP.

*My new youth pull is my best one yet. Presley is an Amateur keeper who already has a 34 in Defense and 22 in Control! Both of these are already higher than Granger. Once he learns the full Goalkeeper role, he'll be way better.

*Because of that, it's time to sell Granger. I get $115,000 for him.

*I renew last year's youth pull Guy for 3 yrs, $1,159.

*I extend Huffman for 2 yrs, $5,538.

*I love Levesque, but there are some good options on the transfer market and he's 31 yrs old. I sell him for $122,000. (Originally bought him for $12,500).

*I replace Levesque with Beverly, a lvl 22 Central Defender who has 40 in defense and 26 in control. He costs $11,300.

*I renew Hensley for 3 yrs, $18,557. He's worth it.

*I also decide to sell Lance for $139,000. It hurts to lose him, but this will allow me to do one more youth academy upgrade.

*I upgrade the youth academy for $360,000. This means I will now get a youth pull from lvl 15-25.

*Jennings and Kelley will need renewals in 8 months. I put off that decision until winter break.

*I'm left with $31,730.

We actually find a way to lose this one! Our forwards are just awful and can't get a good shot off. Without Hensley, we get dominated in midfield. They get behind our defense late in the 2nd half and score the winner on the last turn. Ooof.

Final: Fresno 1, Des Moines 0
Goals: None
Top Three: Nesbitt, Edmonds, Jennings

K-W United (1-0-0, 2nd) at Des Moines Menace (0-0-1, 5th)

After a scoreless first half, K-W is able to beat our inexperienced keeper twice. The good thing is we're able to pull one back each time on terrific strikes from Yoder on the corner. This wasn't how I expected our return to the Amateur league to go, but it's the sacrifice for upgrading that youth academy.

Final: Des Moines 2, K-W 2
Goals: Yoder 2
Top Three: Yoder, Jennings, Huffman

Yoder - lvl 16.

They score on the first turn of the game, with another easy shot against our inexperienced keeper. Luckily, we're able to pull one back at halftime when Kelley heads in a corner from Hensley. We get several 2nd half shots to win it, but can't put any away.

Final: Des Moines 1, Bethlehem 1
Goals: Kelley 1
Top Three: Kelley, Hensley, Huffman

Nesbitt - lvl 21

Grand Rapids FC (3-0-0, 1st) at Des Moines Menace (0-2-1, 6th)

Not sure how they've won three matches, but they're terrible. Forsythe scores on a header from a Hensley cross, then Yoder converts a penalty to give us a 2-0 halftime lead. Their attack is pathetic and a terrible pass late in the game lets Kelley get a one on one with their keeper, which he converts.

Final: Des Moines 3, Grand Rapids 0
Goals: Forsythe, Yoder, Kelley
Top Three: Edmonds, Jennings, Kelley

Edmonds - lvl 24
Kelley - lvl 16
Guy - lvl 14

Des Moines Menace (1-2-1, 6th) at Calgary Foothills FC (0-0-4, 8th)

Now this is an embarassing result. Calgary is by far the worst tea in the league and we just can't crack through their defense. This was a pretty boring match where we dominated possession, but got no good shots on goal. I really need to find a Forward somewhere.

Final: Des Moines 0, Calgary 0
Goals:
Top Three: Edmonds, Nesbitt, Hensley

Sonoma County Sol (3-0-3, 5th) at Des Moines Menace (2-3-1, 4th)

Our offense fails again, missing badly on all three shots on the goal. Our new keeper is not doing so well as he gets beaten by a weak shot. He'll be much better once he learns the full GK role (50% bonus to defense), but it's painful to watch now.

Final: Sonoma 1, Des Moines 0
Goals: None
Top Three: Yoder, Jennings, Hensley

Transfer deadline moves...

*I sell Kelley for $70,500. He's not worth that at all, as he's only good with headers.

*I sell Dyson for $63,200. He's 32 yrs old and I can bring in Still to replace him.

*I extend Jennings for 1 yr, $394.

*I extend Yoder for 1 yr, $368.

*This leaves me with $168,931 in the bank. I sit on this until the next transfer window opens, hoping to finda Forward in the transfer market or via youth pull.

Prestige Cup: Round of 32 - Leg 1

Des Moines at Chattanooga FC

We manage to control possession in this one, but neither Forsythe nor Yoder can convert the 4 shots on goal they get. Thankfully, Pressley has the best game of his young career and makes two crucial saves to salvage a draw on the road.

Final: Des Moines 0, Chattanooga 0
Goals: None
Top Three: Pressley, Jennings, Huffman

Bevery - lvl 23
Pressley - lvl 19 and now has learned the full GK role.
Jennings - lvl 16
Guy - lvl 15

Prestige Cup: Round of 32 - Leg 2

Our goal here was to hold them scoreless. A 0-0 draw goes to penalties, while a 1-1 or higher draw means they advance on away goals. We did a pretty good job for most of the first half, but they break through right before halftime. We missed several good chances on corners and failed to seriously threaten down the stretch.

Final: Chattanooga 1, Des Moines 0
Goals: None
Top Three: Still, Hensley, Forsythe

Still - lvl 17

Winter Break activities...

*Not excited about the new youth pull. Arias is an 18 yr old, level 17 Amateur Midfielder. He has 24 in passing and a useless 25 in accuracy, but he does have the Intercept skill.

*I sell Jennings for $77,400.

*I buy McCullough, a lvl 31 forward who owned us with a hat trick last season, for $99,721. This should help solve our scoring issues.

*I extend Pressley for 3 yrs, $2,656.

*I extend Still for 3 yrs, $1,529.

*I extend Beverly for 3 yrs, $6,806.

*I buy a couple other players for depth purposes - Forward Galloway (38 Acc) and Midfielder Rowan (32 pass, 17 control)

*I am left with $124,641.

Fresno Fuego (2-0-5, 6th) at Des Moines Menace (2-3-2, 5th)

Our former defender Levesque is now with Fresno and he gives us fits all game, keeping McCullough in check. Meanwhile, a dumb foul in the box gives the a penalty and they convert. McCullough is frustrated several times, but finally breaks through with a goal midway through the 2nd half. We get one more solid attack, but McCullough's shot is stopped by Levesque.

Final: Des Moines 1, Fresno 1
Goals: McCullough
Top Three: Nesbitt, McCullough, Forsythe

Huffman - lvl 26
Forsythe - lvl 24

We have to rest McCullough because he's too tired from missing so many shots last week. Forsythe and Yoder have no chance to make anything happen, yet Bethlehem gets a ridiculous goal from the corner of the field right before the half.

Final: Bethlehem 1, Des Moines 0
Goals:
Top Three: Nesbitt, Edmonds, Pressley
