nice simple game, rated for you.
if you're going to continue with it i would suggest a few improvements;
1. penalty's are hard to score (especially if you trigger one early), they already have a very low chance to trigger (which is good) so making them have a higher chance to score would be more realistic.
2. "chance"/shooting results in general seem completely random... maybe this could be opened up more in the teams experience so you have something to work towards in career mode if staying with the same team?
2.b. also multiple passes could increase the success rate of chances so putting 4 passes together = high chance to score while a straight out chance card has a low chance to score).
3. the reveal cards are really shuffled and not random, while this is nicely done it does let you actually follow the card if you have a good eye for this sort of thing... perhaps speeding up the entire "animation" for this sequence will fix it and also make it less time consuming to watch it every match.

the career in general could do with some more feeling of progression but just having a team exp and/or manager exp would be good.

Thanks for checking it out smallg!

Great feedback, I'm working on an update to be out in the next week or two that will address some of your feedback.

1. Penalties I'm working on a kind of 3 card monte mini game to find a goal, so if you have a good eye for it, you'll score a lot more often and even if you don't it's a 1 in 3 which is better than the existing method.
2. This is a tricky thing - in the old version, I didn't have chance cards, just goal cards and it let to the good computer teams scoring too often, so now the good teams get more chances than the lesser teams and therefore score more than the lesser teams. For the user, it's just about playing the game and getting as many chance cards as possible to try and score. It set to "Easy" mode, you can sometimes get a random reveal of the goal cards instead of just chance cards. The chance cards are actually fixed as goal, miss or save cards, it's not something that is worked out every time you select a chance card.
2.b. 4 passes get a chance, and then it's actually weighted towards a goal card so you have a better chance of it being a goal than trying to find a goal card. I've thought about some sort of accumulating score during the match, i.e. the more chances and passes you have in total without scoring, you could then have a more likely chance to score (i.e. it points to chance cards that are goals). Maybe for the next version (if I do one!)
3. I like the random reveals as most times I can follow it to get the 8. Maybe in the next version I can add an option to just turn off the shuffle if the user prefers
4. Career - I've added in the XP points so you can see your score progressing season on season as you move up through the leagues or to a more difficult league. Plus you can try and get a top international job by doing well domestically. Ultimately you want to win trophies with your team, and the way the game engine works, you can be successful with a small team or a big team, just depends if you want to work up from the lower leagues.

Thanks again for playing!
