Just finished season 2 and it echoes my first season of me finding it relatively easy. I think the formation really is working.
I finished 5th and missed out on Champions league last day of the season. Ecstatic with this being my first year in the prem. The finishing position has enabled the board to pay off all debt and upgrade all youth facilities/recruitment.
Transfers: Board gave me 32m after promotion. Was little disappointed but heyho.
Phil Foden - Loan - Great signing. Trying my hardest to sign him at the end of the season but city want 200m plus haha.
Ben Woodburn - Loan - Another Great Signing. Played up top or wide left as an inside forward.
John Souttar - 15m - CB. Started every game until damaging his spine and out for 5 months. I was gutted as he was potential 4.5stars.
Rodrigo De Paul - 17m - AML inside forward and was a great signing. Now worth 28m
Livakovic - 2.5m - GK. Cheap and solid
Lewis Baker - 7.5m - 5 month injury shortly after.
Nicolas Dominguez - Free - 21 yrs potential 5 stars and already a first teamer. Now worth 15m
Andrea Pereira - Free - First teamer now worth 26m
January I signed this young striker. Always love to play a young lad up top and hope he scores loads. He doesn't come until July though.
Fabio Silva - 15m potentially rising to 25m.
Roofe - 10.25m - Interestingly as soon as he landed at Brighton, he was transfer listed again for 8m haha.
Klich - 2.9m - Sold to Blackburn as wasn't good enough anymore
Ekuban - 2.6m
Sako - 1.9m
Anita - 3.2m
De Bock - 2m
Forshaw - 5m
Ideguchi - 3.5m
Nasri - 7.5m
In both years played so far I have got 2 5 star youth players come through our academy. One a CM (Stobbs) and one a AMR (King) who is already a championship winger. Although not good enough yet I am blooding these so pretty excited about that.
Next year aims are to get champos and build on the young lads I already have. Need an overhaul on defence as I haven't really touched that since starting!
