Game Log | PES2019 – 005 🎮⚽
Finished my 4th Master League season (2021-2022) and I finally won a title as a manager. My team, Paris FC, were crowned Ligue 1 champions. It was a welcome result after a heart-breaking loss to Real Madrid in the European Club Championship. For next season, my goals are to win the French Cup and progress farther in the European Club Championship.
Currently in the offseason, prior to the start of the 2022-2023 Master League season. I tried renewing F. Aguilar's (CB) contract. His contract was set to expire on 2023. After renewing his contract for 4 years, his contract expiration date is now 2027. So, renewing a contract means the year length is added to the current expiration date.
Need to figure out what to do with the offer to Canning and Mihailov.
- Canning probably should be replaced with a better player at LB. That's what I'm keeping him for in the first place; a backup LB.
- Mihailov has a Stamina stat of 58, which is pretty low. If I'm replacing him, it has to be for some other player that has better Stamina. To get him to not run out of stamina before the end of games, I have to set him to not defend at all. This can be a liability when you're behind and you need everyone to press the opposing team.
- K. Gameiro, a Striker on my Youth Team, is the one I'm looking to sign. However, I predict it will be really expensive to try and keep him in the lineup in the future.
It is now the start of the 2022-2023 Master League season. I won my first game against Real Madrid in the International Champions Cup. We were tied at the 95th minute mark. I won a corner kick and called everyone to join in. Scored the tiebreaker in that set piece and Real Madrid did not have time to get another goal.
Next game against Club Brugge ended in a draw.
Last game for the International Champions Cup was against Manchester City. I won that game, which meant that I won the International Champions Cup. Prior to the start of that game, I signed K. Gameiro as a backup Striker. That turned out to be a good idea, because Arcas, the superstar on my team, was injured in the win against Manchester City.
K. Gameiro made his debut for my team in the French Super Cup game against Paris Saint Germain. I scored the first goal with B. Goios, but eventually fell behind 2-1 after Neymar scored two goals in succession. We equalized with a great free kick from Castledine. Then towards the end of the game, Hamouma and Gameiro hooked up to score the decisive goal. We won the French Super Cup against a really good PSG team.
To end my post, I'll share a new thing I finally learned in the game. To have your defenders join the attack during set pieces, you can choose which players do so by going to Gameplan –> Player Settings –> Players to Join Attack.
I can't believe I've played PES 2019 for a year before I finally figured that out. 🤦♂️
