End of 2016/17 Season Update
Summer Transfers Geronimo Rulli - Real Sociedad - Free - Didn't live up to my expectations to be frank, sold in January and replace with Rajkovic Adem Ljajic - Roma - Free - Absolutely amazing for a free transfer, highly reccomend him to anyone needing an inside forward on the left Andre Carrillo - Sporting - Free - Another freebie, wasn't great nor bad, but did end up being sold in January Daniele Rugani - Juventus - £30M - An absolute rock alongside Romangoli well worth the money I paid, solid wall in front of Donnarumma Ruben Duarte - Espanyol - £9M - Nowhere near as good as Jorge, Will be sold, but only if you guys can reccomend a decent italian LB to replace him Riechedly Bazoer - Ajax - £6.25M - Ajax had listed him and he looked like he'd be a decent half back for that price and he did perform, another solid signing Abdou Diallo - Marseille - £10M Didn't really give him a chance, so never saw what he could do, left in january Anthony Martial - Man Utd - Loan - Was everything I could have asked for in a striker, an absolute machine! Averaged a goal in the Serie A every 75 minutes, what a rate! Lucas Silva - Real Madrid - Loan - Absolutely useless, wasn't happy with him at all. Terminated his loan in January Andrea Belotti - Torino - £17M - Massive fee, only brought to be back up and to stop Juve getting him. Started complaining, sold in January Ludwig Augustinsson - Monaco - £7.25M - Did well in the first season when called upon, decided he was un-needed this year. Made a profit on him Diego Lopez - Watford - £2.1M - Wasn't needed this year, and didn't make the cut last season either, so sold him Nigel de Jong - Stoke - £5.75M - Was surplus to requirements at the San Siro, not a bad price for him imo Luca Antonelli - Norwich - £7M - My dim witted DOF decided to sell him over my head, forcing me to buy Duarte Keisuke Honda - Metalist - £5.25 - Another who was surplus to my requirements Juraj Kucka - Reading - £4M - Another I wasn't planning to use so sold him And quite a few players leaving on loan or free transfers January Transfers Marko Grujic - Red Star - £2.5M - Arrived for a very small fee, looked pretty decent to play my half back role. Also meant I could terminate Silva's loan, yay! Andrija Zivkovic - Villarreal - £11M - With getting such a huge fee for Carrillo, it meant I could bring this lad in. He's done decently and is now a wonderkid Jesus Vallejo - Real Madrid - £5M - Saw he was available for a decent price and snapped the wonderkid up, very good rotational option and meant Diallo was surplus to requirements Domenico Berardi - Liverpool - £5M + Suso - I just couldn't say no at this value, as Domenico wasn't getting enough game time at the scousers. I had to rescue him from that hell Anthony Martial - Man Utd - £30M - Made his loan move permanant. Absolutely Delighted! Memphis Depay - Man Utd - £30M + Luan Was surprised to get him, was just a punt in the dark. Only down side is he was cup tied in the champions league Abdou Diallo - Dortmund - £7.5M - Not a bad price I suppose, but he had to leave Suso - Liverpool - Part of player Berardi deal Luan - Man Utd - Part of Memphis deal Torres - Napoli - £5M - So happy to be rid of the donkey Carrillo - Napoli - £32M - Couldn't say no to the fee, massive profit on him Competitions Had an amazing season in the Serie A, by ending it as Champions. Finishing a massive 26 points ahead of 2nd place Juventus. The most notable win was a 6-0 trouncing of Napoli at the San Paolo. In the first round I trounced Empoli at the San Siro 4-0, the goals coming from Martial (2), Bertolacci and Silva In the quarter final I beat Juventus in Turin on penalties. Martial and Berardi with the goals In the semi final I beat Torino 6-4 on aggregate over the two legs. Depay and Martial getting all 6 goals between them Absolutely gutted to lose the Final to Roma on penalties but there's always next year right? The group stage had so many twists and turns, not sure if I enjoyed it or not lol. Anyway heres the final table of my group Now onto the knock out rounds . Again so many damn twists and turns along the way All in all it was an excellent season! I have quite a few fairly large transfers lined up. You'll have to wait until the end of the new transfer window to find out who! Might need help thinning out my squad in January lol. Anyway if any of you want any screenshots of how the academy products (donnarumma ect) are looking just ask. How are your saves coming along? FORZA MILAN!
