Mandy42 Posted May 11, 2020 Share Posted May 11, 2020 In an effort to maintain some form of sanity, I have installed FM Touch on my Ipad which I take with me to use on my breaks at the hospital. I'm back at Chelsea, this time in FM20 with the proper transfer embargo not one I've made up myself. It's busy, difficult, and uncertain at work at the minute, we have all been encouraged to find ways to take a break and switch off. Any input as the season gets going will be gladly appreciated, an injection of humour or company could be just what the doctor ordered (no pun intended!) Anyway enough lamenting my real life job and onto the perils of my FM job: Hazard is gone. Reece James, Tony Rudiger, Marco Van Ginkel, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Pedro and Callum Hudson-Odoi are all on the injury list. Rudiger is back in days, the rest are weeks, with an unlucky couple still months away from being healthy. The transfer embargo is in effect until 31st of December 2019, which is only 4 months away. The bank balances is ridiculous, with £275 million in proft, a cool £115 in the transfer pot when we get the green light. The only outstanding business is Hakim Ziyech coming to us from Ajax, but that isn't until July next year. Alvaro Morata joins Athletico Madrid permanently at the same time. Pre season was all about getting into shape to kick off the competitive campaign, easy run outs against Birmingham and Luton led onto more taxing affairs against Monaco, FC Koln and Inter Milan. We won those 5 games, scoring a total of 17 goals and conceding only once, our last friendly against Atlanta we lost 1-0, only three days before the start of the Premier League season, a result I wasn't happy with and slightly knocked my confidence. For the current season, Bruce Buck and the board want us to qualify for the Champions League via the Premier League. The Carabao Cup is not seen as important, however the FA Cup and Champions League they expect a minimum of the Quarter Finals in each competition. Looking further ahead, challenge for silverware and work towards challenging for the Premier League is expected by the end of 2020/21 season. Challenge for the Premier League in 2021/22 Work towards winning the Premier League in 2022/23 season and Win it in 2023/24 if my contract has been renewed. However back down to earth and the present moment, we open our campaign at Stamford Bridge against Newcastle. Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
