  1. Well, i've been put off my Udinese save for the moment. I loaned Tuanzebe as a second non EU, and it bugged, not asking me who i wanted to register first after i freed up space for him loaning a young non eu out of italy: it defaulted to another youngster on the under 20's squad, so i'm stuck with a 2.7 mln wage loan i cannot play. Hope this gets fixed next year, it's just stupid not being able to choose who to register all the time, but only sometimes.
  2. We did it! An almost perfect season gave us a fantastic double win in Scudetto and Coppa Italia! The team really worked hard, and managed to push through difficult times never giving up when behind. I love the resilience that is in this squad. Chelsea was too much, too soon, as expected, but we fought bravely and will do better in future. Champions League will go to Manchester this season. What a final... it was tense, and we were perffect from the spot. Juventus was also great in this match, but we wanted our first trophy ever so much that we got it
  3. Finances are squeaky clean as i like them to be: 75 mln€ from De Paul first season, spent a big transfer budget the second season, but with the club on the stock market now things are looking healthy and i'll try and keep a big profit with sales, while bringing in class players for cheap when they get transfered listed from big clubs, or go out of contract, with the odd wonderkid signing, as i always like to do.
  4. Small winter moves: just some little adjustments: Reina came in during Musso's 2 week injury, will be good for getting the team determination up. Some youngsters come in, but also Michelin (french rightback with a bullet throw) and Oriol Busquets, as we keep picking up Barcelona's disaster squad management. Out on loan some non EU youngsters, as they cannot be registered, and Vallejo and Fosu-Mensah for more game time. Also our big sale of the window was Coulibaly, who i would have happily kept as backup but china pays cash. Lots of it. January is alway
  5. The strange winter world cup season is going great in the first half, we are undefeated, and through to knock out stages of Champions League. Our young strong passing counter game is working marvels, but inter is almost as good as us. it's going to take a lot of luck to win the Scudetto. This is how things are looking for now And as a bonus Yuriel Celi, by far our best performer with Braaf, scooped up both youngster awards Now onto winter transfer market. I'm not planning much, if outstanding offers don't come in. Might be l
  6. Keep up the good work. I found that the only way to improve the squad long term is not settle for half players, as they will get worse once your reputation grows and will be able to attract better players. Go for wonderkids in backup instead, if you cannot land a solid great player for your needs. It will be worth it in the long term.
  7. My summer was veeeery busy. I didn't want to change much, but a new board that put the club into exchange market made me want to go affter what i desperately needed: talented and young squad depht. So these ended up being our transffers: Big buys were the 3 arranged: Gomez Dimarco and Esposito above all. Then i snapped up cheap transfered players like Fosu-Mensah, Vallejo, Meret (for when Musso will leave), Alena and i splashed out in 18 year old wonderkid Savio, who already scored a screamer of a goal in his second match from the bench. I almost lost Musso to Milan
  8. Fantastic season for you too. How's your squad looking? The choice is between trying again to win the champion's league, and starting over a new challenge... go with your gut
  9. Soooo, this happened quite early, and it is fantastic news already Here's how the season ended. Eternal runner-ups. Oh well.... Second half of the league undefeated, but Juventus is just too much It's a shame we got bested by Inter in the final, but to be fair we had it easier than them, except Juventus But Europa League is the real big regret.... we almost had it So close........ Not looking for any big moves next season, but maybe Musso and Becao have enough interest they might have t
  10. Bit of a strange season: we started losing to Juventus and then went 12 undefeated, and we almost never left second spot. Juventus is unreachable, but the Milanesi and Romane, Napoli and Atalanta are having a mediocre season, so we are going great in second spot. also selling De Paul for 75 mln helped me get the right players for my tactics: tonali, dimarco, braaf, celi and arezo are all really integrated. Loaning Musiala for 2 seasons was very important too, retraining him as a right wide midfielder worked wonders, and Cagliari’s relegation got me an experienced forward like Simeone
  11. straight into my starters, and he is already performing well. I decided to update my tactics, becoming more proactive as the quality of my squad is improving very fast, and it's paying off for the moment
  12. Only one new player for Udinese in January, this nice chap here 31 year old Roberto Pereyra is declining and going to be out for an injury four a couple of months, so i loaned in from Dortmund his replacement, and getting him also on a free for next season. And he started amazingly
  13. I almost went for the nostalgic choice, but then got Ciro Ferrara
  14. Second season has been exciting in the first half, we got a huge chunk of consecutive victories in Serie A, with a team effort, and most of all Tonali really shining Europa League has also been a success, we qualified first in the group stages We are going strong, but will be hard to maintain. European football for the second year is the goal, whichever of the 3 we manage by the end of the season. Won't be making big transfers in January, only youngsters for the youth teams, and maybe a couple of bargain loans or a replacement for Perey
