It was a rocky road to the Europa League final. I needed a scrappy late late winner vs Napoli to win the quarter final. I got a helping hand from the AI own-goal of the season to win the semi-final.
Then it was here. The final, versus Fulham.
Find a player that looks at your digital avatar the way Castledine is looking at mine here. (Or looking at the back of my neck anyway.)
So. Season 14. No proper trophy in the entirety of PES2019 so far.
Below is a 3-minute highlights package. A couple of issues to mention. First, wanting to make my edit easier, I chose to manually record a highlight each time one happened, and somehow managed to miss capturing most of my second goal. Second, whilst editing I made an unfortunate 1am decision to provide a voiceover when I was a) already a bit hoarse from a long working day, and b) using the laptop microphone. Sound quality is not great.
With all that said, it was quite an interesting match.
That is all I have to say.Yes.Fulham had the best chances and dominated the match. They had 8 shots, 4 on target. I had 6 shots, 3 on target. Possession was 49/51 to me. The 2019 version of ‘the AI that we need’ was much in evidence in this match.
I’m sore that I managed to miss recording my second goal. I was so thrilled to go 2-0 up that I forgot to double-tap the Share button to capture the previous minute, and only just remembered with seconds left to capture the brief view that did make it. At least it was a standard sort of goal from Mascherano rather than a 50-yard long-ranger.
The Premier League season ended like this:Mediocre in every respect. A true transitional season.
The above table will interest all students of Master League table scripting. The script left the top-4 door ajar for me for as long as possible. At the end I was only 4 points off it. And I was only 2 points from the top 6. Every good, bad and indifferent result I had was matched by the exact result(s) above me that were needed to keep interest alive. Despite losing 14 (FOURTEEN) matches I was in the running for a podium finish right to the end.
One good thing: I’m still going to be in the Champions League next season, thanks to New Big Ears.
Now I must aim for the league title. And the Champions League. Also the FA Cup while I’m at it.
I’ll finish with a sight that I waited 14 seasons to see:
