The 2018-19 English Pro Season for SOCCER BLAST Pro Soccer Game puts the top English football league at your command whenever you're ready for it! Unlimited, top-level football action on your tabletop—anytime! available June 29!
The 2018-19 English Pro Season was an historic one on a couple accounts. First, it's runner-up club lost just once all season. Second, a newly-promoted club posted a remarkably strong finish.
Liverpool's 97 points was the highest-ever point total in modern pro league history for a team that did not with the title. Its sole loss—a 2-1 decision at Man City—proved costly. At one point in the season, the pro league table showed Liverpool with a seven-point lead over Man City, but a run of fourteen wins whittled back the advantage and on the final day of the season, Man City's 4-1 win over Brighton & Hove Albion gave it the title by a single point.
Wolverhampton returned to the top-tier and produced its best showing in nearly 40 years. The club won 16 games, finished seventh in the table, and earned points from every team in the league except two: Liverpool and Huddersfield Town. An impressive showing!
Speaking of Hudddersfield, its twin victories against Wolverhampton represented two-thirds of its win total for the entire season. It joined Derby County and Ipswich Town as the only football clubs in league history to be relegated with a full half-dozen games still to play.(For those who enjoy a tabletop sports challenge, keeping Huddersfield out of relegation might be the ultimate!)
You'll get cards representing players for every team that competed in England's top football league in 2018-19, all 20 of them from Arsenal to West Ham. Each team features individual cards for every player who played more than a half-dozen games, over 400 cards in all, printed in team colors, featuring our new action-pose card design (see above). Every card is put together in a way that represents the player's actual 2018-19 contribution, whether it was award-winning, undistinguished, or anywhere in between. The prolific goal-scorers like Aubemayang, Mane, Salah and Augero will demonstrate the same proficiency on YOUR tabletop! The great assist guys like Hazard, Fraser, Alexander-Arnold and Eriksen, will show the same stuff for you that they did for their real-life clubs. They'll be reined in—at least some of the time—by top defenders like Laporte, Van Dijk and Roberston. And, of course, players like Alexander-Arnold will be dangerous on both ends of the pitch! Meanwhile, the great keepers like Allison and Ederson will be just as tough to score upon in your card stock re-creation of football as they were in real-life.
Here's your chance to experience all over again the ups and downs, high points and low, of the memorable 2018-19 pro season! If you're a fan of Liverpool, it's not far-fetched that you could re-write football history by scratching out a extra couple of points for your club in a season replay and snatch the championship away from Man City. The 2018-19 English Pro Season card set for SOCCER BLAST gives fans of any and every English top-tier club the opportunity to re-boot and possibly improve upon your football club's campaign. (It works the other way, too, though, so—beware!)
Along with your set of individual player cards, you'll also get a brief season summary and an Instant Results Grid with which you can quick-play fixtures with a single roll of the dice. It's perfect for creating context in a single-team season replay. Or, conduct a "game-of-the-week" campaign, with a different pair of clubs featured each week and quick-play the others. With SOCCER BLAST's fast game time, projects like these can be accomplished in a matter of weeks! It's all the fun and excitement of big-time English football, catered to your personal preferences, on your schedule!
