How are the transfers in your long saves. Ive only played up to 5 years and Man City don't seem to spend much.
Year 1- 50mil
Year 2- 0
Year 3- 0
Year 4- 30mil
Year 5- 30mil
Liverpool outspent City by about 70 mil.
Surely City should spend more, not realistic!
The team is pretty strong right now. What do they need to spend big on? Got Toure in midfield, Kompany in defence, Aguero, Balotelli, Dzeko, Nasri, Tevez, David Silva... Thats a strong team w.o spending at all, for about 6 or 7 years.
They still have their current squad and those additions, but notable sold/released are Adebayor, K. Toure, Weiss, De Jong and with Balotelli getting loaned out. So they keep hold of all their good players and get rid of the duds while adding quality. I see no problems in my save. They have plenty of promising newgens as backup aswell.
Chelsea always spend the most on my save but never finish higher than 7th! Man City sometimes spend loads and other times don't bother. To be fair though if I managed City then I would be buying the best young talent each year and not spending a lot of money in doing so.
Their manager list is also a strange one. Two years of Mancini, then jose for two (mancini took the madrid job), then rafa for one (jose went to Inter) then finally Mancini again when benitez went to spain after euro2016
2011/12 - £59m - Jagielka, Danny plus four others
2012/13 - £40.5 - Zhirkov, Lucas, Vertonghen
2013/14 - £62m - Menez, Ochoa, Samba plus six others
2014/15 - £65m - Baines, Vrsaljko, Erikson plus five others
2015/16 - £31m - Cabaye, Polenta and a regen
2016/17 - £54m - Haruna, Sigurdsson and eight others
2017/18 - £65m - Bale, Niang plus six others
2018/19 - £126 - Varga, Wilshere for £43 and six regens
A whopping £502.5 million in eight seasons spent by Mancini (sacked), Ancellotti (sacked) and Mancini again (current manager). However, unlike real life, money has not bought them success, runners up first season in community shield and League Cup runners up in 2015 and Premier League runners up in 2018.
