One of my shortest posts ever today, not because I’m not playing PES2020 on PS4 (i most certainly am), and not because I’m not immersed in the ML that I have going on it (ditto). A few real-world things mean I’m stitting down to write this post from scratch at 11.44.
16 minutes to post time. No pressure.
Something about the colours of Borussia Dortmund just say ‘football’ to me. And European football in particular.For this Season 7 I’m highly prioritising the Europa League. I don’t know if or when I will get to compete in tjhe competition again.
Currently top of my Europa League group with 10 points after 4 matches. I have played and beaten Borussia Dortmund. Yes, this is still ‘only’ on Top Player, but this level can be plenty tough when it wants to be tough, believe me. I’ll probably go up to Superstar for Season 8 now.PES2020 still isn’t a PES of great goals – they’re all much the same, really, with only the odd goal standing out – but it is a PES of great goal-scorers.
This is a box-finisher’s PES and so the likes of Default Jarvis is a treasure – as is my 18-year-old Regen van Persie.
Goals from all my box-finishers and others have fired us to 2nd in the table.And look at whose name is 2nd in the goal-scorers’ table.That’s not too bad at all after 9 matches. He is still only 18, remember. A few seasons yet before he hits his stride properly. This kind of developing story is what PES and Master League are all about.
And finally today – yes, I said it would be a short one – here are 3 moments of interest from my most recent session.
First up is a team move that ends in a nice headed goal from Lobato. Then a free kick from Castledine that felt too far out for a shot, but I thought I’d try it. And finally a 29-yarder from Castledine that still doesn’t satisfy my stringent requirements for a satisfying long-ranger… because it’s more of a ‘dodgy keeper’ moment than a true long-ranger.
