Another year has passed, another year in which my virtual son has made me proud father. I know it sounds awfully sad, but it’s quite satisfactory to see a little pixelated man with your family name score a bunch of goals, knowing that he calls you “dad” in this particular save-game.
Roel is maturing into a nifty shadow striker. He is fast, he is strong, reasonably strong in the air and he can finish his chances. A track record of 35 goals in 59 games is not at all bad for a 19 year old player, especially when you consider the fact that in the earlier stages of his career he was primarily used as a substitute.
