Should be a really good battle between them, perhaps a couple of others have a chance too next season !

I'd be delighted to step aside now if Betty wants to get started early..?

If it's still up in the air then yous should make a decision on a confirmation as soon as possible. If not then decide or a draft or a free for all so folk could start sorting out their cap numbers with a view to it.

I was hoping Chris might stay but it seems not. I would much rather someone took over, explained why on numerous occassions.

I'd rather Betty comes back to the gw. The sooner we know the better though, preperation wise. Meself as an example, i've got 38 in the squad. It seems i have space but next season i've got 3 going out and 5 coming in, in already agreed deals so technically i'm at cap.  If there was to be a draft or a free for all, and it was left to the left minute to decide it, i'm bunched!

I made a mistake in taking over PSG.. What  I enjoy most about this game is slowly building teams from scratch, I just couldn't get back into this GW after leaving Atletico. coupled with not having any interest in PSG in real life, I found myself completely losing interest in the GW midway through last season. 

If you'll have me back, I might take over a different club at some point in the future...

Fair enough, plenty of teams in Div 2 that need a re-build....You're always welcome to take one on.

Haha.. I wouldn’t worry, prefer starting from scratch. Also, a break from this GW was more than needed. Now to decide which of the other 13 or 14 teams to bin!🤔

Thanks mate. That's my second double in a row so it's a double-double! Never been done before in the gameworld I believe. The double itself has only been done three times in 22 seasons.

That might well be the best I can do with this team. Next season will be tougher without Ronaldo. I learned this season that winning the treble is almost impossible. Would need a lot of luck as well. I lost three times in total this season so far and all of those three were games where I dominated stats but had the opponent goalie pulling of a MOTM 9-10/10 performance. Those always happen in SM no matter how good a team you have it seems.

Bayern's final record is 68 points which equals the all time high with LM's Barca from Season 15. Didn't get the treble but a double and that is good enough for a historic season for me.

Ronaldo will move to PSG after my assistant is done with the SMFA final and the "dream team era" at Bayern will be officially over.

Looking forward to next season already, and especially what Betty can do with PSG. Five straight wins to end the season hasn't gone unnoticed at Munich. Expect a strong challenge from him with Ronaldo joining.

Well done A-bomb. Without your highest scorer, best player, golden boot winner and gameworld player of the season next campaign. Fully expect the other superpowers to give a good account and stand up to your tyranny.

Congrats Alex, well deserved.

I think that is the best I'm likely to do with Valencia for a long time. Managed to pull together a band of misfits who made it to 4th but most are likely on the decline. Got a good gang of youngsters and some value in the squad I can probably add to that with through trades, so think it'll be a move on to a rebuild job from now on planning for the future and sacrificing the next couple of seasons.

Thanks Mikey. Valencia definitely played an impressive season. You got the maximum out of your squad. Caused me one of my three defeats of the season too!

Congrats, mate.

Very happy with how PSG finished the season, with us ending up 5th after starting somewhere near the relegation zone. Going to be tough to challenge Bayern even with Ronaldo, but we'll do our best. Trying to get a few deals done before the start of the season. Nice deal with KL trading Malcom for Walker. Hate his stupid smug face, but he strengthens up the right side of the defence nicely.

Looks like Virgil is off the market again after flirting with City for the past week. If anyone dares to make a bid then you know where I am. No special desire to sell the big man, though.

PSV loading up on some top young talent again after slightly losing our way over the past season or two. Donnarumma, Kehrer, Fabinho, Ceballos, Vinicius, Rodrygo, Lozano & Malcom all joining in recent months. Still looking to cause some more damage in the transfer market as well ;D 94 rated Godin could be available for anyone looking to dethrone Bayern...

Thiago Silva too! Always thought they were very rough on those two. Di Maria has been playing some of the best football of his career the past couple of seasons. Thiago Silva's level has never really dropped either imo. His treatment is pretty shameful when you compare it to the other great CB's of 2010s they have shown a lot of respect for: Chiellini, Bonucci, Ramos, Pique, Godin etc.
