  3. Sounds interesting. Following.

    good luck!

  4. August is finished and I think I have done some good business in the transfer window. I didn't sell anyone, but I let Simon Davies go for no transfer fee to Middlesbrough cause of his 30k wage per week. I bought three players and got two on free transfer. These are my ins:

    Angel Rangel 3.7m
    Wellington Nem 3.5m
    Jermaine Jenas 3.1m
    Alex free
    Royston Drenthe free

  5. I am now nearing the end of January and things are going pretty bad. I am now sitting in the 18th place, 10 seats away from my target. I have 24 points after 25 games.

  6. 8 very hard games left and I am 2 points off non-relegation zone. Will be interesting if I fall down to the Championship.

    End of 1st season!

    Finished the season in 14th place, which is very pleasing given to the position I was in mid-season. I won 7 out of the 10 last games, ending the season on a 5 game winning streak, which is pretty awesome because it increases the player values to be playing well.

    The Cups are irrelevant in this step of the challenge, but I got to quarter finals in Capital One Cup, and to the 5th round of the FA. In both cases Liverpool knocked me out.

    I'll post screens of the final league standings, transfers for this 1st season and the players who performed the best, which was all my defensive line haha, screenshot of Wellington Nem is also there.

  8. Think the 2nd season will also be a tough one, only 1.2m to buy players for. Managed to secure Wilfried Bony and Michel Vorm before the 1st season ended for 9m combined tough.

  9. Just finished my transfers for the 2nd season. Will post a screenshot of it.

  10. My record is now 0-1-6, I am at the bottom of the table, let's just hope I manage to turn things around before I lose my job.
