That's a valid point - as fantasy newbie managers of the top clubs in the world, we do tend to act Mourinhoesque. It's really up to the boards to curb our spending.
The main 2 points summarising the points made in this thread (by you included) still stand though.
That leads me to a suggestion, which I don't think will get a good response but IMO would be a good addition to the game.
Should wage and transfer structures be set by the board att he start of each season along with budgets? E.g. Man Utd have ¬£20m to spend and have the ability to spend every penny of that on one player, Derby have ¬£20m to spend but the board set a limit of ¬£7.5m as the highest amount allowed to be spent on one player. This could rise as reputation and earnings rise and eventually players would have the ability to spend ¬£20m on one player, no matter what club they are. IMO that seems realisitc as to how RL clubs would be run.
Personally I set myself a target of highest transfer fee I can pay as the clubs record purchase, i.e. at Bayern Munich I can't spend more than the ¬£17m spent on ribery. Likewise I set a wage structure and limit myself to ¬£46k pw per player at the most, if anyone asks for more then they move.
IMO the unrealistic element is that clubs such as Derby can spend ¬£40m in one season and have players earning ¬£60k a week after only 2 seasons.
I doubt this will get a good response but it's just a suggestion.
