It's been a slow update, hope to be quicker now

So I'm almost ready to upload the new changes to the game now. I reckon I just need another few hours in total, and then I can finally have the new attribute displayed.

I hope to grab these few hours over the next week or so. However, I have some absences coming up so I may just hold on uploading them until I return, and I'll be around to fix any site display issues that will inevitably be raised.

What I will do is tell you that the attribute is going to be Pace. Every player has a value for this, and until now it hasn't been displayed on the site. It's a little different to the other attributes as it's not something that can be trained, and the value only changes once every season (during a pre-season fitness text). It does increase as players get stronger and then starts diminishing as they get older - but all to varying degrees.

Pace has been involved in the match engine since almost the beginning of this game - so about 25 years. I've just never chosen to display it because I wanted to keep some unknown factors in the game. There are a few other attributes that players have, and I may bring them out at some point, but I'm going to have an 'attribute break' after this and work on other bits that I want to progress.

There are other changes around the game/site that will be in the next update, but this new attribute visibility is the big one. I just hope I manage to find the time to finish it off sooner rather than later now.
