    I'm bring my Video Career Mode over from the old dynasty site. Let's get caught up.

    A mid-table finish and a decent run at the FA Cup are attainable goals. Much more realistic than the Liverpool expectations which were to win everything.

    One area of the West Brom roster we don't have to worry about is goalkeeper. Ben Foster, England's back up to Joe Hart in net, is one of the best players on the club. If he goes down -- can goalkeeper's even get injured? -- we have a capable backup in Boaz Myhill.

    We're going to start the season in a 4-4-2 so let's take a look at our defense. There's certainly a big drop off after Olsson and Lescott. Both are 31 and are below 68 in stamina so we're going to need some depth.

    Pocognolli and Gamboa have good speed and acceleration but I don't understand how Pocognoli can already be in poor form when we haven't even played a game.

    Improving the defense is probably our most pressing need heading into the season. I'm a pretty bad defender with the gamepad and these guys aren't going to help my cause.

    Not a lot of depth on defense is there? Davidson and Donaldson are young enough to improve.

    The midfield seems decent but not spectacular. It's going to be interesting to play without a 80-rated player.

    What concerns me is the lack of speed (with the notable exception of Sessegnon). I always find that speed is the most important rating in a EA Sports game no matter if it is Madden, hockey or soccer.

    Under Yacob for morale it has "threatened". I've never, ever seen that before. Does that mean he is being paid to throw games or an Asian gambling syndicate is going to kill his family?

    We've got some depth in the midfield which is important because we have no depth up front.

    Poor Sebastian Blanco doesn't even get a head shot.

    We're going to need to play some great defense because we're not going to score like we did at Liverpool with this group.

    Any injuries up front are going to be trouble because we are incredibly thin. There's basically nothing behind these four players.

    Should be a good challenge to try and finish ninth.

    Not a good way to start the season

    We're going to kick off the season in August with three winnable games against Sunderland, Southamption and Swansea City.

    Going to take a lot of time to get everything over from the old forum. :/

    Looking forward to seeing how you do with a mid-table team compared to Liverpool last year.

    Meant to post this before the game. It explains why Mulumbu didn't play.

    Too bad for Fletcher. He scored against us in the first game and now he's hurt. That's what happens when you score against us. Let that be a warning to all our opponents.

    It's on to September and we'll open the month with a Capital Cup game at home against Hull City

    We have a big break and then tougher games against Everton and Tottenham before ending the month against Burnley.

    Should be a decent match. I don't think we'll roll over Hull City but we should beat the Tigers on our home pitch.
