    A Southampton Challenge

    Hello, and welcome to my Southampton save. My previous Manchester United save was not very challenging, since I had a world-class winning team, with brilliant back-ups at every position, and had pretty much won everything, within two years. So, this time, for the first time, I'll be looking to depart from Manchester United, and go with Southampton. Hopefully, the challenges will keep me interested for a while, and make it a long term save.

    As can be seen, not too many silverware lying in the cabinet. Of course, during the course of my tenure at the club, I hope to change that to include a lot more. Which in turn, brings us to overall aims.



    Overall Aims
    • Win the Capital One Cup.
    • Win the F.A Cup.
    • Win the Barclays Premier League.
    • Win the Europa League.
    • Win the UEFA Champions League.
    • Go a season undefeated.


      The last one seems very unrealistic at present, but who knows, if I can establish my dominance that way, then all for it. Although, I wouldn't like for it to happen irl, since that'd mean English football was no longer challenging >.<

      Since I'm a hardcore Manchester United fan, and usually almost always manage them, decided to go something new. While this isn't as challenging as starting from League 1 or 2, for me, it presents a reasonable, achievable challenge.

  2. Southampton are great fun, i'm into my third season with them. Shouldn't take too long to win the FA Cup and Capital One Cup or even the Europa League. I'll be following this to compare haha, best of luck!

  3. Good luck with them. .u have an amazing save still going strong on fm13 where I am in 2019 and have wo the europa league 3 years in a row tge champions league 2 times ina row as well as the European super cup 4 times I a row fa cup 3 times and Capitol one cup twice only thing I aint won is the premier league so I know it a great challenge

    All in all, I feel Soton have a pretty decent team, atleast for the current season. Some pretty good players means we can atleast challenge for a top half finish, if not more. It'd be sweet to cross out atleast one of the aims in the first season itself!


    KEY PLAYERS

    These will be my main key players for the upcoming season. Hopefully, they'll perform upto the expectations upon them. There are a couple more players who can cement their spots too, with good performances.


    BOARD OBJECTIVES

    This is really problematic, and rather irritating, since I really don't like playing possession soccer. Nor will it be easy to sign high-profile players on a small budget, unless they're very, very old. But I wasn't able to get the damn board to let me off the hook, so I really hope the first season goes well, in order for me to re-negotiate my contract from a dominant position.


    BUDGET

ID:	436384

    So, I decided to opt for a top half finish for this season. I feel this should atleast be easily achievable with the current squad, and it adds a slight boost to my low transfer budget. [Low, because I'm used to dealing with 50-100 Millions, generally]


    TRANSFERS:

    A decent enough transfer window, although I do wish I had a teeny bit more funds, to strengthen more positions[I particularly wanted to bring in Didier Drogba to the club (would also help High Profile clause)], but that was not to be. Benayoun and Sissoko's experience should serve us greatly, and they were on a free, which makes it a beautiful deal! Strandberg was very cheap, for what is a rather good cover option for DC. Ince, I'm hoping, will turn out to be a very good player for us. Macheda, was just on a whim, since he was banging in goals after I'd sold him, on another of my saves. I didn't let anyone go, mainly because I decided to err on the side of caution.

    That's a heck of a save mate, hopefully, mine'll go on for a while too xD

    Decent enough schedule, as it is. If we can maintain momentum in the middle, there should be a good chance for us to try for a top table finish. The main stumbling blocks will be against the big 4, so hopefully, if we can perform well at home against them, and decently away against other teams, we should be ok.



    PRE-SEASON

    Friendly
    Elgin City 0 - 6 Southampton
    Victor Wanyama (9), Gaston Ramirez (25), Pablo Oswaldo (30, 87, 89), Yossi Benayoun (50)
    MoTM : Pablo Oswaldo

    A brilliant start to our campaign, although it isn't a very stern test. But a 6-0 win is sure to improve morale in the squad. Also, Benayoun makes an instant impact.



    Friendly
    B-Tel Aviv/Ramla 0 - 1 Southampton
    Alon Lazmi o.g (34)
    MoTM : Artur Boruc
    A disappointing outing against a weak side. If it wasn't for the own goal, this would have been even worse, if that was even possible. Boruc made some top-class saves, thus ensuring us the victory.



    Friendly
    H. Ako 0 - 3 Southampton
    Guly do Prado (25, 45+1), Rickie Lambert (28)
    MoTM: Guly do Prado
    Lambert contributed again, but this time, it was experienced Guly do Prado who stole the show. Admittedly a vast difference in performance compared to the previous match, but still squandered a lot of chances.


    Friendly
    Irony Bat-Yam 0 - 6 Southampton
    Luke Shaw (8), Rickie Lambert(14, 22, 40, 64), Yossi Benayoun (45+1)
    MotM: Rickie Lambert
    Another outstanding performance, and Lambert stole the show, and showed why he would be the main striker in the upcoming season.


    Friendly
    Southampton 1 - 1 Anderlecht
    Rickie Lambert (48) | Matias Suarez (72)
    MotM: Jos Hooieveld
    We should frankly, have gotten the win, the defence was decent, but wasn't meant to be, Suarez got a dead range goal. Hooieveld was the surprise of the match, picking up MotM, and proving he can be solid at the back too.


    Friendly
    Southampton 1 - 1 Granada
    Rickie Lambert (3, 35 pen) | Darwin Marchis (51), Odion Ighalo (66)
    MotM: Rickie Lambert
    Another frustrating match, where we should have been clear, run-away winners, but lapses of concentration in the second-half saw the match foolishly slip away from our grasp.


    Friendly
    Southampton 0 - 1 Galatasaray
    Emre Colak (14)
    MotM: Luke Shaw
    Our first encounter with a UEFA Champions League regular, and we were defeated at home. Although, to hold out to only a single goal defeat means there are some positives that we can take back.

  8. AUGUST

    Premier League
    Southampton 3 - 0 Aston Villa
    Yossi Benayoun (34), Antonio Luna o.g (66), Rickie Lambert (74)
    MotM: Yossi Benayoun
    I'm reasonably happy with this result, since it is a home-game. Aston Villa are a lot stronger than us, but they're marred by injuries to 6 different players, which we took full advantage of and hence it was bound to be us all the way.

    Premier League
    Manchester United 3 - 0 Southampton
    Robin van Persie (pen 8), Rooney (41, 42)
    MotM: Wayne Rooney
    A horrible first half, especially the later stages. United weren't at the top of their game, which is understandable, considering they only got in Arda Turan in the transfer window. There was still hope, and some good movement was being created, but we were caught napping, and sunk by Rooney with quick, twin strikes.


    Capital One Cup
    Southampton 4 - 2 Leyton Orient
    Macheda (22), Lallana (29), Rickie Lambert (71, 88) | Lisbie (pen 17), Mooney (19)
    MotM: Rickie Lambert
    This one is a misxed bag. While it was good to get the win to progress, we leaked goals to a squad who shouldn't haven been able to get a single goal at all, especially at Soton. 2 quickfire strikes gave them a 2-0 lead, but thankfully, their defence was worse, paving the way for super-sub Lambert to get us the victory in the 2nd half.


    Premier League
    Southampton 2 - 0 Liverpool
    Lambert (70), Benayoun (82)
    MotM: Yossi Benayoun
    An outstanding result, especially considering who we were facing. The defence finally seems to have settled down, Fonte especially was a rock at the back. Liverpool didn't play Suarez, instead opting for Iago Aspas, which we also utilized to the full extent. I'm very, very happy with this result, and hope it'll lead to greater things.



    Player of the Month


    A Southampton Story - A Saintly Road to Domination.-yossi_benayoun111.jpg
    Yossi Benayoun

    A closely contested fight with Lambert, who got more goals, but Benayoun got crucial goals, as well as excellent assists as a winger, thus pipping Lambert to it.

    A minor annoyance, but I'm not using Rodriguez much either ways. Won't be the last injury either, hopefully we can avoid long term injuries to my key players.



    In other news, Benayoun made it to the Goal of The Month at 2nd spot.

    And finally, the transfer window roundup. Nothing much from my side - I only got Michael Keane on loan from United, and am pursuing dos Santos as a backup BWM.

    ManU only bought Arda Turn, and paid an exorbitant amount for him. Not sure I agree with that, but Moyes' trait is "Spends transfer budget on 1 player". *Sniffles* Whai Moyes, whai?

    Heartbreak upon reading this. Had I known Arbeloa was available for so less, I'd have leaped at the opportunity to get him T_T Especially since my RBs seem to be struggling (both Clyne and Chambers)


  9. Great stuff! I'm thinking of starting a Southampton save tonight. What tactic(s) are you using?

    Can't think of anything for now....yeah, it was a big shock tbh, but i was browsing, and spotted a relase clause in his contract and just went for it, cause id just sold a ton of players haha

    Lol, it seems like a foreboding month. The first major event which happened was this..

    I just dearly, dearly hope this is an sampler of the rest of the month. My squad is ok enough as it is, without annoying injuries coming into play. Tsk!


    Premier League
    Cardiff City 0 - 2 Southampton
    Macheda (21), Jack Cork (47) | Craig Bellamy (24)
    MotM : Pablo Oswaldo
    An ok match, actually. I hadn't considered Cardiff too strong, so I fielded some rotation players. Bellamy almost made me regret my decision, but thankfully, Cork was there to save the day.

    However, that victory over Cardiff came with a price..

    It's like I feared, that first injury was an omen. Now an even more important player (and our MotM for the previous match) is sidelined for a couple of weeks.


    And.. Osvaldo wasn't our only player injured.

    Another first teamer, Morgan Schneiderlein is also out for around 10 days. This is definitely not good.. But thankfully, the duration is less, so he'll be back very soon!



    Also, they weren't to be the only ones.. Yes, you guessed it. Another injury, just a couple of days after the previous 2. Do I get my conspiracy theory books out now? Whai is this happening to me?!

    Thankfully, it's Davis, who I almost never use, so it's some sort of "consolation". Still.. *sniffles*. Inspite of focussing on Fitness training earlier, I'm going to now switch to it again.



    However, someone somewhere decided enough was enough, and gave me my first good news in a while!

    Capital One Cup
    Cardiff 2 - 5 Southampton
    Tom Ince (17), Benayoun (39), Steven Davies (43, 83), Wanyama (67) | Cornelius (24, 76)
    MotM: Steven Davies
    A match where the midfield ruled all the way for me. A grude rematch, one might say, considering my previous match was also against Cardiff. Steven Davies was in inspiring form, thus guiding us to the win.


    Premier League
    Southampton 5 - 2
    Crystal Palace
    Frederico Macheda (25, 71, 80), Lovren (45+1), Ward-Prowse (74) | Chamakh (19), Aluko (48)
    MotM: Frederico Macheda
    And I'm finally vindicated in my decision to buy Macheda. He's been performing reasonably consistently, is young, and this performance is icing on the cake. Our first hat-tricmk in a competetive match, it was a beautiful performance. We were simply brilliant in the 2nd half, with it producing 3 goals!

    That performance was enough for Macheda to get the top spot in 'Goal of The Month', a fantastic achievement.

    Has to be Frederico Macheda. 4 Goals in 2 games, plus a key assist make this a no-brainer. My Assistant Manager keeps telling me his status should be 'Not Needed by Club'. Yeah, right.



    Also, the Board seem happy with me. I'm winning them matches, so even without the possession soccer or the 'High Profile signings', they seem to be ok.

    We're in a pretty damn good position in the table, and have a game in hand, which can potentially leapfrog us to 3rd. Hopefully, we'll build on it. I rather hope the Board'll give me funds in January, although that is looking more and more unlikely.

  15. Amazing lol just hope you be ok with all them Injuries

  16. OCTOBER

    Premier League
    Southampton 1 - 0 Arsenal
    Jack Cork (69)
    MotM : Artur Boruc
    An excellent result, which leaves me well satisfied. Arsenal did have a rather strong team, but Boruc was instrumental in keeping them out. A couple of brilliant saves, and with both my CB excellent ingame, meant that I took home the win.

    And with that, the fans seem to be a lot pleased with me..

    Premier League
    Southampton 0 - 1 Chelsea
    Demba Ba (8)
    MotM: Danny Fox
    And we lose at home to Chelsea. They're ruling at the top of the table, but actually, we should have been able to draw this game, but our players played a bit poorly, thus diminishing our chances. Other than Danny Fox, our defence was pretty bad too, and it was a wonder Chelsea didn't get more goals on us. But true to our credit, we didn't give up, and fought to the very end, but it just wasn't meant to be. We had a couple of clear cut chances, but they hit the woodwork.

    Mourinho had this to say about us, after the match

    Given that he overtly critical of us before the match, I guess this was a good response. I had dearly wanted to beat Chelsea, but they were a bit strong for us.

    Of course, I don't use him much, but it still isn't nice to see them injured. Of course, Davis was just recuperating from his previous injury. This means that I'll be looking to offload him after the season.


    Premier League
    Sunderland 0 - 3 Southampton
    Schneiderlein (8), Osvaldo (pen 41, pen 67)
    MotM: Morgan Schneiderlein
    A weird result, to say the least. Obviously, the two penalties helped, and I'm glad to get the win, but I do wish we'd got more goals from normal play. But all the players performed very well, so I guess it's ok.


    Capital One Cup
    Blackburn 1 - 3 Southampton
    Tom Ince (63), Guly do Prado (96), Jay Rodriguez (110) | Luke Chambers (90+1)
    MotM: Danny Fox
    Frankly speaking, we were once again poor in this game, getting in only 1 goal against a mid-table team in the Championship. However, some words during extra time spurred them on, and Jay Rodriguez performed the role of a super-sub, as he got a goal in the 15 minutes that he was on the pitch.

    And over the course of the week, this came up

    We're sitting in a pretty position, with a game at hand. If we maintain the consistency with our current level of performances, I see no reason why we can't challenge for European honors in our second season (which would be a fantastic achievement, for a team expected to finish just respectably in the League.

  17. A couple more opinions would be really nice regarding the structure;; Too long? Too boring? Too many pictures inbetween? Suggestions would be appreciated, since I'm still pretty new to stories.

  18. I'm loving this, watching Danny Fox, i'm wishing i'd used him more...how're you lining your defence up?

    Thanks ^_^

    Traditional 4-man defence;;
    Fox/Shaw --- Strandberg/Hoiveld/Yoshida/Lovren/Fonte --- Clyne/Chambers

  20. NOVEMBER

    Premier League
    West Brom 1 - 3 Southampton
    Sissoko (63), Lambert (81), Schneiderlein (90+2) | Toivonen (8)
    MotM: Mohamed Sissoko
    To be frank, I underestimated West Brom. Thinking they were a weak team, I decided to give reserve players more of a chance. However, I paid for that mistake, when Toivonen scored a beauty against me. So, by half-time, I decided to go for the jugular and brought on 3 substitues.. Yes - the 3 goal scores. All 3 played the part of super-subs for me, and Sissoko in particular was very impressive..

    And of course, in continuance with my tryst with player injuries, here was another blow.

    My MotM from last time.. *sniffles* However, it's only for a short while, so he'll back up in no time..


    Premier League
    Southampton 2 - 1 Man City
    Lambert (10), Jose Fonte (90+1) | Jovetic (50)
    MotM: Victor Wanyama
    This was a truly outstanding result. I was hoping for Jovetic to not be fit in time, but he was anyway. Manchester City fielded mostly a watered down squad, dunno why, but it still was a nail-biting game. After thoroughly celebrating Lambert's goal, I set my team on a defensive route, with only countering. However, Jovetic hit me on the break, and after that, it looked like it was destined to be a draw. However, in the very last minutes, Fonte delivers!! I was ecstatic, that was a beautiful performance to win against City. Even more sweeter since I'm a United fan.!!

    Also, I'm guessing probably because of our heartening performances this season, we got this little, sweet, beautiful piece of information ^_^

    My premier player this season, and he's out for 3 weeks. This was a huge blow, and top it all off, it wasn't even during his stay at the club. Damn you, injuries, how much are you gonna take off me?


    Premier League
    Everton 1 -1 Southampton
    Yoshida (61) | Deulofeu (38)
    MotM: Jack Cork
    This was a tough match, Everton were pretty good actually, and it should easily have been their win, but for a beautiful Yoshida header. Hm.. Maybe I should give him more chances.. But after the header, I decided not to risk too much, since we were playing away, and went defensive, thus preserving the draw. Overall, I'm pretty happy with a 1-1 draw against Everton.

    And of course, with our current line of form, what else should happen but that Southampton should propose a contract-renewal. It's still only November, and I'm ecstatic that they've already proposed contract talks.

    However, I had to turn them down, since they weren't willing to back down 'Possession soccer'. We'll see where that goes.



    Premier League
    Stoke City 0 - 1 Southampton
    Pablo Oswaldo (10)
    MotM : Robert Huth
    A poor match actually, and although we capitalised on an early mistake from Stoke, we couldn't much in the whole game. I'm disappointed to come out of this with only 1 goal.

    We got this, after that match,

    The RB has been a problematic position. I rarely get them to complete a game, usually swapping them, because they've been pretty bad. Not just Clyne, but Chambers as well. Need to do something about that.


    Oh and, while my board was pretty confident with me, another Board wasn't as satisfied with their manager, and hence we come to the first major sacking in the Premier League

    We're in third, with a game in hand. This is a fantastic place for us to be at. Also, this means that we're in contention for European qualification, at present.

  21. DECEMBER

    Premier League
    Southampton 1 -1 West Ham
    Macheda (21) | Ledley (84)
    MotM: Guly do Prado
    That was actually pretty crushing. Although we dominated most of the match, we still couldn't find anything beyond that 1 goal. Still, we should have won that match, if not for that last gasp strike by Ledley, which consigned us to a draw at home.. T_T

    Then came this little tidbit..

    Guess the media likes my tinkering with tactics. I try to change my tactics with respect to the opposition, and their schedule and players. However, I have no doubt that they'll criticize me to kingdom come, if I mess up.

    And of course, just hours before my next match, I got this..

    Jones has been a regular first teamer for me this season, and it's not a good sign. However, it's a virus, so he'll be back relatively soon, hopefully with no deteriorating attributes.


    Premier League
    Hull 1 - 1 Southampton
    Schneiderlin (06) | Chambers (o.g 36)
    MotM: Danny Fox
    Another poor match, this time away. Again, we could have won that match, if Chambers hadn't foolishly put the ball into his own net. Shame though, because our defence was pretty decent, with another outstanding performance from Danny Fox.

    Then came this tidbit of news..

    Well, Wanyama has been fantastic, so this shouldn't be a surprise. Another player on my shortlist is also tipped to win - Yannick N'Djeng, but he is unlikely to get a work permit, so can't bring him here, although he would be dirt-cheap and pretty good.


    Premier League
    Southampton 2 - 0 Norwich
    Macheda (48), do Prado (90+2)
    MotM: Guly do Prado
    A very good match, where do Prado excelled yet again. We were good defensively, and our attack was excellent, so overall, I'm happy with the result.


    Premier League
    Man United 1 -2 Southampton
    Lambert (52, 70) | Hernandez (28)
    MotM: Ricky Lambert
    A fantastic result for us! Even more sweeter considering the fact that last time we played United, they'd trashed us. They played a watered down team consisting of Lindegard, Fabio, Cleverley, Hernandez, Young. Yup - no Kagawa, Rooney, van Persie, Vidic.. of which we took full and complete advantage to run out winners!

    MotM: Yanga Mbiwa
    And we lost at home. Clyne massively underperformed, which didn't help. And my forwards were ineffective against their back four. Thankfully, we atleast got a goal on board.

    That match was not a happy one for us, by any stretch of imagination. We also got this..

    I'd criticised the awarding of the penalty kick, mainly because I hadn't done it before, and was very curious to see what would happen..


    Premier League
    Tottemham 2 - 2 Southampton
    Wanyama (40), Ince (75) | Dawson (15), Soldado (38)
    MotM: Victor Wanyama
    A very good result considering we're playing away against Tottenham. The players did fantastically well coming back after being 2 goals down, I'm very proud of this performance. Wanyama was outstanding in the match.


    Premier League
    Fulham 0 - 1 Southampton
    Macheda (pen 35)
    MotM: Nathaniel Clyne
    A good match, and although we were solid at the back, we weren't very effective upfront, with our only goal coming through a penalty. Still, a win is a win, and I'll take that every time..! Clyne was also pretty good, he bounced back after a string of bad performances.Oh and, after rejecting it last time, I accepted it this time around.Click image for larger version

    I managed to get the 'Play Possession soccer' removed, so it worked out well in the end, I suppose. If they're trying to restrict my budget to too low stuff at the start of the new season, I guess I've an option to threaten leaving.

    However, this weird whammy came to us.

    And yes, Wanyama won, so that's a piece of good news.

  22. Impressive league performance so far, playing with Southampton myself. Finishing 7th first season, 9th second season but won league cup and lost semi in both fa and euro cup.

    Their board expectations is a bit anoying, I dont like to do big name signings. And have bought a few Italians, but it seems to be not good enough for them.

    Thanks man ^_^ Macheda has been a revelation for me, playing outstandingly.

    As for big name signings, each time they offer you contract extensions, just negotiate to get those removed. They are amenable to your demands, if you've brought about some measure of success to the club. I got them to remove Possession soccer that way..

  24. JANUARY


    Premier League
    Aston Villa 1 -1 Southampton

    Frederico Macheda (pen 59) | Ciaran Clark (4)
    MotM: Danny Fox
    A poor performance, honestly. If not for that penalty decision, we'd have lost it. Guess my players were too hung-over to play well on New Year's Day? As usual, Danny Fox was fantastic.

    Some piece of heartening news. Our New Years spirit is back!

    FA Cup
    Southampton 3 - 0
    Luton
    Osvaldo (3, 41), Rodriguez (34)
    MotM: Pablo Osvaldo
    An excellent 1st half. Osvaldo was simply unstoppable. A 3-0 score meant that I could give a chance to some of my youngsters in the team, in the 2nd half.


    Capital One Cup
    Southampton 3 -2 West Brom
    Cork (49), Lambert (69, 89) | Dorrans (1), Dawson (63)
    MotM: Rickie Lambert
    Lambert played the part of the super sub, and was instrumental in us getting the victory. 2 brilliant goals. Dawson missed the penalty, but scored on the rebound T_T Still, I'm happy to come out of this with a win, meaning we progress in the Cup.


    Premier League
    Liverpool 0 - 0 Southampton
    Motm: Jose Fonte
    Liverpool would probably still be wondering how they couldn't win this match. I still feel a draw was a pretty good result, inspite of Liverpool's fall from grace in the Premier League. Fonte was instrumental in keeping them out, with 2 key tackles, and a couple of good interceptions.


    Premier League
    Swansea 1 -1 Southampton
    Macheda (45+1) | Dyer (34)
    MotM: Danny Fox
    A 'decent' enough match. Micheal Keane was rather bad, and was substituted half-way through. But otherwise, okayish. Macheda got the all important goal, which still keeps us in running for a top four finish.


    And of course, any month for me cannot seem to go by without injuries.

    Well, no small blow. Ward Prowse was instrumental in our matches so far. But luckily, again, a small duration of time, so he should be back in no time.


    Premier League
    Southampton 2 - 0 Man United
    Fonte (14), Benayoun (87)
    MotM: Jose Fonte
    Sweet, sweet revenge! Although it is against my favourite team. But hells yeah! We beat them at home, and once again, Jose Fonte was instrumental in maintaining our clean sheet. Excellent work from him, his performances are making me take more than a passing look at him.


    Capital One Cup
    West Brom 1 - 1 Southampton (Ovr : 3-4)
    Jordan Jones (77) | Dorrans (72)
    MotM: Graham Dorrans
    Poor poor match, even though it was an away one. It was a tense few minutes at the end. If Jones hadn't got that goal for us, we'd be out of the competition, based on the away goals rule. Phew! But he did, and we move on to the finals! Yeah! A win will probably get me decent money set-up in the 2nd year, in order to try for more trophies.


    F A Cup
    Southampton 2 -1 Swansea
    Lambert (68, 90) | Bony (59)
    MotM: Ricky Lambert
    Another fantastic performance from Ricky Lambert, getting 2 goals in the process, and spurring us on to victory. We come back from behind, to score, yet again!


    Premier League
    Southampton 3 -2 Cardiff
    Macheda (38, 63), Cork (90+1) | Walters (75), Cornelius (90+2)
    MotM: Frederico Macheda
    Lol, my TM seem to be getting around 2 goals per match consistently. Not that I mind at all, though xD Although, I had no idea Macheda would prove this lethal in front of goal, when I bought him xD Still, a mediocre performance at home, players got complacent in the end, allowing in that extra goal to Cornelius.

    That ends the month, and what a heck of a month?! 9 matches, and we aren't even in Europe. Crazy stuff, I tell you. We've been extremely fortunate to come out of that month without a loss.

    But since it's January, that mostly means
    TRANSFERS!


    Well, with my limited budget, it wasn't like I could do anything, but I did manage to buy Jesse Lingard for 180k. His value was 1 Million, but he was sold at a throwaway price. I figured I could eventually manage to sell him at a profit later.
    Here's my overall transfer window for this year.

  26. FEBRUARY


    Premier League
    Crystal Palace 0 - 2 Southampton
    Lallana (34), Osvaldo (90)
    MotM: Victor Wanyama
    A good match overall, and 2 goals see us through against a good Crystal Palace side. Always good to win away matches! xD And yes, as usual, my BWM bossed it up, getting himself the MotM.

    Oh well, it's only a short while, so he'll be back pretty soon into the squad.



    Premier League
    Arsenal 3 -2 Southampton
    Jordan Jones (42), Strandberg (65) | Giroud (9, 44), Ayew (14)
    MotM: Andre Ayew
    I can't really fault the players after that. We were decent enough to come back with a gal in the 2nd half. Was my mistake, since I'd forgotten to mark Giroud. T_T


    Premier League
    Southampton 1 -0 Swansea
    Macheda (88)
    MotM: Dejan Lovren
    Lovren finally puts in a classy performance. He has massively under fulfilled his potential for us, and it's good to see a good match of his, once a while.


    Then was this piece of news.

    Interesting actually, this is the earliest I've seen him in a precarious position regarding his job ingame.



    F A CUP
    Southampton 2 - 0 Everton
    Ramirez (5), Wanyama (45)
    MotM: Victor Wanyama
    Yay, a win against Everton. Their manager was making smart-alecky comments before the match, and a bunch of sour grapes comments after. And again, Wanyama was phenomenal in the match, even getting 2 goals for me.


    And of course, I got intensely curious. I went and declared interest, but remained short of outright declaration.

    Premier League
    Southampton 2 - 0 Sunderland
    Macheda (59, 87)
    MotM: Frederico Macheda
    An outstanding performance from Macheda, and he inspired us to victory with 2 fantastic goals. I'm definitely vindicated in my decision to buy him, even though my Assistant Manager kept on stating he wanted Macheda to be transfer listed as he wasn't of sufficient caliber to merit the team. Hah! Take that!



    Premier League
    Southampton 2 - 0 West Brom
    Lambert (15), Ramirez (73)
    MotM: Paulo Gazzaniga
    Gazzaniga was instrumental in keeping out quite a number of shots, and although his handling is a bit poor, still a pretty impressive performance today to bag the MotM.

    An excellent position, around 4 spots ahead of what was predicted initially. There's only goal difference separating us from Newcastle, who're 3rd. And lol, certainly didn't expect to see Liverpool, Arsenal and City where they are, atm..


    Up next month, Capital One Cup final, and our fresh batch of regens. Here's hoping that we get some good ones! xD

    March! Yes, probably our most exciting month of the campaign. We play our Capital One Cup final, and we get to see our fresh meat xD Muhahahaha! Considering Soton's proneness to produce great youngsters, I'm hoping for a great bunch.

    Capital One Cup
    Southampton 1 - 0 Arsenal
    Rickie Lambert (pen 50)
    MotM: Paolo Gazzaniga
    Yes! We get our first cup! It was fantastic. We were pretty good defensively, and Gazzaniga kept out some key shots. It was a foul from Mertesacker that gave us the lead. We could've gone 2-0 up, as there was another penalty awarded, but unfortunately, Lambert missed it.

    Premier League
    Southampton 2 - 1 Norwich
    Ince (39), Macheda (49) | Husbauer (8)
    MotM: Josef Husbauer
    A poor match, and although we won, we were gasping to victory. They had a lot of chances, but due to some decent defending, most of them were long range shots.


    Premier League
    Manchester City 1 -2 Southampton
    Lambert (19), Yoshida (67) | Aguero (pen 20)
    MotM: Luke Shaw
    A fantastic results over Manchester City. Sicne I'm a United fan, it makes it all the more sweeter! Hail Hail! Players were actually pretty good all around, and if it wasn't for the foolish penalty, there would have been no issue at all.. But anyhow, city are warming up near the bottom of the top half of the table, so it's not all that surprising..



    Premier League
    Southampton 1 -1 Everton
    Macheda (39) | Jelavic (19)
    MotM: Danny Fox
    A pretty poor match, considering we were playing Everton at home. But, they are a pretty good side, so I guess I should be happy to come out of it with a draw..

    Which led to this little tidbit..

    Impressive. Noone in their wildest dreams would've imagined we'd have some sort of unbeaten streak in the Premier League. Yay!

    Btw..

    Not bad, Feyenoord won the Eredivisie.


    Premier League
    Chelsea 1 - 1 Southampton
    Ramirez (52) | Ba (55)
    MotM: Gaston Ramirez
    An excellent result away to Chelsea, who're above us in the table, and doing really good in the Premier League. One foolish mistake due to complacency after the goal, cost us victory. But oh well, I'll take a draw happily too..



    Premier League
    West Ham 1 - 1 Southampton

    Macheda (10) | Downing (65)
    MotM: Stewart Downing
    Another poor match frankly. This draw was totally below expectations, and we should have won that match. I'm going to be having a few choice words after the match.

    I'll once again go with Frederico Macheda. He got more goals in crucial moments for us this month.

    We're still in a pretty good spot up at 4th, however, we could've been much more comfortable in third, if not for all those draws.

    As expected, they seem pretty pleased with me regarding the Capital One Cup. So atleast, no matter what happens otherwise, my job is secure for the moment.

    My best regen. And on the first season. He can probably be a regaular first-teamer in just a couple of years. Have great expectations from him.

    He has some really good stats already for an attacking winger/IF. Definitely one for the future team

    To be fair, I'm keeping him trusting the decision of my scouts, who report he has a pretty good potential. His stats are low atm, but hopefully he improves.

    Rated rather low, but already has some brilliant stats for AM (Winger/IF). Probably a future first teamer.

    I know his shown potential is low, but he has some pretty decent stats already for an IF.

    Already has some decent F9 stats. Although I don't use F9 in my tactics, I can probably sell him off at a decent price once he develops more.


    Here are my remaining regens obtained.
