Hello everyone, been reading through a few of the current stories on the forum and it has motivated me to give it a go myself. Another reason I’ve decided to give a story a go is for motivational purposes. I have found it hard to stick to a save since FM13 has been released, but sharing it with you guys on the forum will definitely motivate me to keep it going! Anyways enough with the boring talk, time to get this story moving.
I’ve gone for Wigan, and I have no idea why. Maybe it’s the fact they have been stuck in the same situation for a good 5-6 years now (only just avoiding relegation) hopefully push them higher up the table and one day be pushing for European competition places. I have no target in mind, as you can most probably tell from the stories name. I’m just looking to play, and evaluate where I am, and what I can do from then on. Could find myself in a relegation battle….or maybe push for a top half finish. We’ll just have to wait and see.
I have played pre-season already, and have also finished all transfer activity at the club, unless someone comes in with an extraordinary offer of course.
Transfers InOverall I’d have to say I’m happy with the signings I have made. I wasn’t planning on bringing in this many players. But for the prices they were available at, I couldn’t turn them down. A few transfers have been spread over 24 months as well. Very excited about the prospect of Wellington Nem!
- Ryan Donk – CB | £2.6 Million
- Wellington Nem – CAM | £3.2 Million
- Gelson Fernandes – CDM | £3.5 Million
- O. Hiljermark – CM | £1 Million
- Juan Albin – CAM | 3.1 Million
- S. Camara – RW | Loan
- R. Lemaitre – LB | Free
- N. Helenius – ST |3.6 Million
- C. McManaman – ST | Loan to PrestonFelt these players weren’t cutting it for Wigan, so decided to ship them off. Also receive 500k a month from Spurs for the loan of Boselli, which isn’t too shabby if you ask me.
- M. Boselli – ST | Loan to Spurs
- J. McArthur – CM | 3.3 Million to Wolves
- Piscu – CB | 1.3 Million to Huddersfield
- F. Fryer – CM | Loan to Leeds
- R. Golbert – CB | Free to Luton
- A. Crusat – LW | 2.2 Million to Forest
Just had a look at our fixtures over the first couple of months, and I can honestly say I have never seen anyone have a tough first 10 games as we have! Looks like it could be a long season for us. I’m going to set a target of at least 10 points from the first 11 games. Think it’s safe to say I am not looking forward to September!
Next update will be up shortly as it will be done monthly!
