Season 10 has had the most tepid opening of any season I can remember. Signing Buffon was probably the highlight.
Matches are fast and furious, fouls are few and far between, and goals also seem to be at a premium.
If it wasn’t for the still-plentiful headers from crosses and corners, I’d only have scored a couple of goals all season.
I’ll never, ever stop going on about fouls in PES nowadays.
I’m continuously astounded, at the end of a 10-minute match with zero fouls in it, that this kind of thing is allowed. Konami would say to me in return: ‘So how come you’re starting your 10th season of Master League? Hey? Hey?‘ To which I would just have to comically splutter.
After my transfer window wheeler-dealering I was left with this Treble-challenging squad of 26:

Quite a few Youths in there.They’re here to play when my real players are knackered. Getting Youths in the final season is mostly pointless. This is definitely the final season.
I’ve been racking my brains trying to come up with a nickname for C BACCA, but it just won’t come. I’m all out of ideas.
I’ve got off to a good start in the Champions League:
Played two, won two. I believe I will qualify for the knockouts in the Champions League for the first time in PES2017.
3 of my 4 goals so far have been, you guessed it, headers from crosses. The headers where you press Shoot almost as soon as the crosser has kicked the ball, when the ball is still 30+ yards away from the would-be header. I still cannot get over the fact that this mechanic is an actual thing. Why hasn’t it been patched out of the game?
In the league it’s another unbeaten start, but again those stubborn draws are mounting up – and look at my pitiful 4 goals in 5:
Season 10, let’s get it done.
Isn’t it nice to be finishing PES2017 as March finishes? That’s a heck of a good run for any PES. Fouls or no-fouls.
