Well...I swapped my DoF again.

Mr. Blaze-Babel did well, but I got an Email with some interesting people.

It cant get any better, maybe his formation.

But overall Mr. Javier Ribalta looks like the DoF you want.

Well..if they dont play their first team, we got a small chance.

Luckily the EFL Cup goes straight to pens after 90 minutes.

We got like 6-7 players with decent pens and this advantage we took and beat City!

Amazing October!

The Leicester game I cba tbh.

There is one coach I absolutely hate to play against and this is Diego Simeone..

Well he is at Leicester....

November 2023 - Premier League

image.png.48f70872540a76aa37debbbaf7e7ee3a.png

I think we played ok vs City, made couple of mistakes to many.

The rest of the month went pretty good.

 

Yes we are currently 4th, but we still need to play some big teams.

We need to think from game to game.

I think its save to say, we are fighting for Europe this season.

4th to 10th only 3 points.

We are in the semi final of the EFL Cup again.

We drew Brentford in the EFL Cup. And looking at the other semi final, there is a good possibility of some silverware.

Tough end of January with Simeone, City and Spurs...

Its January and its time to push for the next step.

 

OUT

image.png.8b6e157fc0e5e1f00edd5e8323dd49fd.png

Im pretty proud of those transfers.

 

Diawara came last winter from AS Rom for 7,75 mio. He played pretty ok, but I hate players which hates big matches.

After 2 months....there was the "hate big matches" icon...

So I put him on the unwanted list and Mr. DoF managed to sell him to Wolves for a 3 mio profit and we got rid of the 4 mio/year wages.

 

Shomurodov was pretty key in our first season the Premier League.

But he only works in a two striker formation, I noticed this last season too.

So I saw that Lyon was interested in him, so I offered him out for 30 mio. They said...yep here is the money.:brock:

We made 26,3 mio profit on him!

 

Jean Lucas was a signing our first DoF. We payed 800k last season which was a steal in my eyes.

He is a solid allrounder, but we are starting to outgrow him.

He goes for 6,75 mio and roughly 6 mio profit back to Brazil.

 

Small profit on Sokratis after 6 months. He was moaning abouth playing time.

IN

image.png.b73046be0ee1fdbdc2b3f5f7f13e2d7c.png

With Hector Herrera we got some much needed experience in our team.

An absolute leader and big match player. He is the replacement for Diawara.

 

I dont search for wonderkids, but if my scout find them, I will look at them.

Marcos Leonardo looks amazing for 20 years and for 13,5 mio I thinks its a decent prize.

I think I will still search for an older option.

 

Kieran Trippier was transfer listed by Newcastle and...why not

Decent HG option, which will challenge Kristensen.

January 2024 - EFL Cup - Semi Final - 1st Leg

image.thumb.png.488ad8458c017e63f7dd279b7a2b9950.png

Really nice 2:0 away win in the 1st leg.

Marcous Leonardo settled really well.

 

Also our first academy prospect got his first minutes.

Finsson looks like he got all the tools to be a solid IW

Im planning for next season and we need HG club players, if we play in Europe.

Vyner is a decent 3rd choice wingback.

Smashed Brentford with 4 goals at home.

 

We got the chance of our first silverware of this save!

We will play the Wolverhampton Wanderers.

 

And we are still undefeated at Wembley!

Ok we only played once there, but straight facts. :brock:

Vyner for HG reason is in.

I dont really feel the Kaiky transfer, but I dont overrule my DoF.

Only the other 2 CBs he wanted to sign.

Also we got our first final.

Mukhtar was more injured then avaiable this season.

So I decided to move him. We made 3 mio profit on him.

Benarous was a young prospect from the Bristol academy.

But he will be never Premier League material. We should have enough HG players.

 

And we finally sold Yiadom, our 3rd choice RB.

Yes...thats not just one Hazard...thats Eden Hazard at Bristol City!

 

He isnt finished, he wants to elevate us to the next level!

 

 

This is basicly 9 mio for 6 months.

And if he enjoys it here, he will probably sign a new deal in 2-3 months.

I know this from past saves.

Three players we got on NXGN list.

Katinic is fantastic.

Bouzid is developing really well at Nancy. He looks like young Riyad Mahrez.

And with Cooper we got our first academy player on the list.

 

Also my scouts got like 9-10 players to scout.

Two unlucky games at the start of the month.

But we ended with 5:1 smashing of Everton.

 

Looking at the table...it seems we gettin Europa League football next season.

I dont think Chelsea will drop points.

We got a spicy team here!

I think we got almost the right mix of old and young players.

The decision to bring in a 33 y/o Hector Herrera or Eden Hazard elevated us to the next step.

 

Lets see if I can improve that even more in the summer.

Rodrygo was transfer listed by request for the entire season.

I thought very long about him, but in the end... why the hell not.

 

He still had a contract until 2027, so I locked in the 4 mio p/a wage contribution.

The upped the fee from 26 mio to 35 mio, but we pay 15 mio over 3 year.

 

He probably will play on the right side.

He is the "best" player in the game which comes from the Bristol academy.

I always like to say..."There arent players, which are tooooo old...There are only good or bad players"

Finally you can use those players in FM too!

 

We needed another option for the DLP position.

Welcome to Bristol City....Sergio Busquets!

We managed to offload Kaiky, so we had one CB spot open.

My scouts found another Uruguayan with some pretty spicy stats.

I think for 10 mio thats also a little steal.

And I finally got my desired World Class LB.

Renan Lodi played only couple of games for Bayern and was just the backup for Davies.

 

I had the option to buy him for 22-25 mio, but he wanted like 7 mio/year wages.

This would break our entire wage structure.

 

So I looked for a loan and we pretty much pay 9 mio for one season.

Also we got a 22 mio option.

In both games a draw would be the right result.

The season is long, lets see what happens in our next meeting.

We made over 100 mio this summer.

We cleared out the U23 again, offloaded fringe players and cashed out some player for massive profits.

The important one are:

Maja - 300k - 2 seasons -> sold for 22,5 mio

Abner V. - 6 mio - 1 season -> sold for 11 mio

Kristensen - 5 mio - 2 seasons -> sold for 20 mio

Kaiky - 13,25 mio - 2 games -> sold for 16,5 mio

Longstaff - Free - 2 season -> sold for 14 mio

Barak - 21 mio - 1 season -> sold for 20 mio
