  1. Sidney Sam? Got him for £2.7 Million in the second season for Dortmund, and he outperformed Reus and won the Bundesliga golden boot!
  2. Finished my second season, the league finished like this: http://img585.imageshack.us/img585/3396/201213bundesliga.png We won the Bundesliga with ease in the end, with surprise contenders Mainz ending 9 points off the pace. My defence was far stronger this season with Beck, Hummels, Manoel and Schmelzer forming a solid backline, which helped us to concede far fewer than last season. Best performer was without a doubt Sidney Sam, signed him for just £2.7 Million in the summer and he finished with stats like this: http://imageshack.us/f/821/sidneysamhistorycareers.png/ He won the Bundesliga golden boot and Fans player of the year, putting in some brilliant performance and scoring some absolute screamers for me. He can be frustrating to watch at times with his low Teamwork and Decision attributes, but he more than makes up for it with his dribbling and finishing skills, i definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a right winger! Hoping that we can do better in the Champions League and the DFB-Pokal this season, after being knocked out by Arsenal in the first knockout round of the CL and by Darmstadt in the first round of the DFB-Pokal last season.
  3. You won anything so far mate? I won nothing in my first season (Apart from Supercup), but going good so far this season sitting 6 points clear of Bayern in the league and in the 1st Knockout Round of the CL against Arsenal, but I got knocked out of the DFB-Pokal in the first round by third division Darmstadt:p.
  4. Cheers for the reply mate , hopefully he will kick on after the winter break!
  5. Yeah that's what i've been playing him as, but he seems to struggle to get on the ball and have any real influence. When i play Moritz Leitner in the same role he seems to perform much better even though his attributes are far worse:(. Also has anyone else found Gotze to be really injury prone? He seems to not be able to go more than a couple of months without getting injured for me. If he has a poor second half of the season i might seriously think about selling him.
  6. what role do you play Gotze in? I'm halfway through my second season and we're 1st in the league but i can't get him to perform to the level he should play at with his attributes. He's got an avg rating of just over 7, which imo is pretty poor for someone of his ability. Any advice? cheers in advance.
  7. Finished 1st season with Dortmund, was a mixed bag really. First half of the season we were very poor in the league, hovering as low as 13th at one point and being in 10th going in to the winter break. In the Champions league we fared better, edging out Ac Milan for 2nd in our group. After failing to win any of the first 3 Bundesliga games after the winter break and getting knocked out of the DFB Pokal by Wolfsburg I changed to a 4-2-3-1 deep instead of having one CM and one DM in the middle. Results picked up and we went on a 14 match unbeaten run taking us up to 3rd in the league and the semi-finals of the Champions League. However terrible results followed against Schalke and Twente as the defence was letting in goals for fun. We couldn't turn the tie against Twente round however we managed to recover in the league with a draw and a win to finish in 2nd place securing a place in next seasons Champions League places. Player stats: Players-wise there were some who really disappointed. Neven Subotic never performed to an acceptable level and i'm thinking about cashing in when the transfer window opens. Piszczek and Schmelzer also contributed to some terrible defensive displays and their futures are far from certain. On the positive front, Mario Gotze had a very good season along with Lucas Barrios putting in some very good displays when called upon. Mats Hummels was decent among a poor defence and Robert Lewandowski performed well but his finishing let him down at times. Shinji Kagawa had a good season but will probably be sold with the imminent arrival of Marco Reus in order to fund investment in the defence. Overall it was a decent 1st season, but next season we have to improve massively in both defence and attack if we are to close the 16 point gap between us and Bayern. My main targets in the summer are a center back, Right back and a Left back along with possibly looking at replacing Roman Weidenfeller, who is prone to costly errors. I've already agreed deals for Sidney Sam, Ruud Vormer, Julian Schieber and Lennart Thy. Sam and Vormer will both challenge for the 1st team in the RW and DM positions. Schieber will probably be loaned out as Lucas Barrios' displays have convinced me to keep him. Thy will go in to the II team to gain experience for a season and hopefully help them to get promoted to the 3.Liga. Also looking forward to Reus and Bittencourt arriving and hopefully both will have good seasons. Sorry for the size of the update, didn't think it would be this big!
