  1. I watched the first half of the Spurs v Bilbao friendly at the weekend and it planted the seed in my head to try an Athletic game on FM11. Interest in football manager dwindles a bit after a while as I find myself buying a lot of the same players game after game or getting a team so good it just doesn't feel like a challenge anymore but I get the feeling this could be different. In this game I have to develop my own players and not just bring in the same old faces and I love the thought of having 100% domestic player bias in my squad. Decided to start with a tried and trusted 4-3-3 system and thankfully I already had the players at the club to fit . Standard back four set up nothing complicated , 3 hard working mids with one in the anchor position and Llorente as a target man with pacey dribblers either side of him . Pretty quiet in the transfer market . Signed Gorka Larrea for £350k and loaned Pantxi Sirieix from Tolouse . Gurpegi broke his leg in pre season so needed a work horse or two . Sold Gabilondo and David Lopez as they didn't really fit and I couldn't re train them into new positions like I am doing with Ander , Susaeta and Igor Martinez . Having a pretty decent start the season . Unbeaten in first seven league games including away wins at Barca and Madrid plus a 6-1 home win against Osasuna which pleased the fans. Got a pretty decent Europa league group which I won't get into now . Not surprisingly Llorente is the star so far and I fear any long term injury to him will kill my season . He's just one of those players a team like this will find impossible to replace . I will try to upload some screen shots of my progress (when I learn how to do it that is) Think this could be a real long term game rather than my usual stop / start a new game efforts .
