Since we've already gone on to general Master league talk instead of plans, I've noticed a few things:
CPU players develop only at their expected rate, no one seems to break the trend, or receive bonuses from team mates' abilities.
Same goes for the ability things; all CPU players are still lvl 1, meaning that my players aside, only Ronaldo and Messi will be considered legends. (i think that's what the top one is called anyway.)
There's no CPU fatigue again either. It seems that the game ignores quite a lot of features on the CPU teams end of the game.
Overall, everything is great, but loaning players out seems like a waste, and there'll be no real surprise developments by the looks of things.
On my side of things,I'm really pushing for domestic success this season, still not won a domestic trophy at all. Sold Ozil and Gaitan. Bought Neymar, and it looks like I'll be able to sign Ronaldo from PSG from what my scout has said. Brought Totti, Rio Ferdinand, and Wes Brown through the youths, so that's 3 promising youngsters.
And on a footnote 41 year old Luca Toni has rolled back the years and become my top striker with Italy.
