  1. Seriously? 98m? In my 7th season, the most I've spent on a player is £27m on Hazard, and that was only because I knew I had £23m coming in from selling Xherdan Shaqiri. Would be pretty great to manage him though I suppose. Anyway, my starting XI for season 7 looks like this: I'm definitely trying to bring in newgens more than anything else now. Here are some of them: Ivo Sousa - Cost 6.5m when he was 18 Vagner - Cost 2.6m when he was about 16, had to wait till he was 18 though obviously. Kamel Adda - Cost 25m at the beginning of the season.. I splurged, and had just sold Thiago to Chelsea for £26.5m http://img1.uploadscreenshot.com/images/orig/11/31219200122-orig.jpg (ran out of images allowed in post) Hugo Peralta - Cost 3m when he was 18. Probably one of my favourite players at the club. http://img1.uploadscreenshot.com/images/main/11/31219211992.jpg Finally, Emilio Nascimento - 19m from Real at the beginning of the season.. I got jealous, and Aguero had just gone for £33m I must say, I've got pretty damned lucky with the development of the newgens I bought when they were young. Very lucky indeed.
  2. This is ridiculous now. Awful. Cannot get a new stadium There's no evidence to suggest the fan-base will expand. Considering leaving..
  3. [video=youtube;XFBusHOwdAs] I'm just going to leave this here.. He's 32 now.
  4. Buying the stadium is allowed pretty early on isn't it? That was fine for me. As well as expanding, even without foreground sugardaddy. My issue is with building a new one..
  5. I've been getting this forever now. Won La Liga 3 times in a row. Won CL once, but apparently the fanbase isn't expanding. Seems pretty unfair really. On the upside I got Courtois on a free after Chelsea let his contract run down to 6 months, so I was able to sell Khune. And I got £17.25m
  6. Could try asking the African players to retire from int. football. I don't like it, it seems cruel, but I am so reliant on Khune in goals, and he was willing..
  7. 2015-2016. Won La Liga 3 times in a row (luck more than judgement). CL last season.
  8. City, £32.5m, 210k wages. When I got offered the Real job, before they sold him, it said they would give £233m transfer budget, so clearly they're rolling in it. edit: 1000th post in the thread, wow.
  9. I just sold Muniain to Real Madrid... for £59m They sold CR7 and are clearly panic buying. I'm sure I'll live to regret this, but I think I can probably replace him.
  10. The 2 full-backs are regens, as is the sub keeper. This is my team as of March 2015 though.
  11. I sold Juanmi (perhaps hastily) at the start of the second season for £2m + 50% future profit. I just knew he wasn't going to play for me, given that my 2 first choice strikers, Kadlec and Muniain were only a year older than him. He looks decent on yours, but I'd probably suggest that he may never be good enough for Malaga. On my save, things went from bad to worse for Spanish football.
  12. They replaced Pep with Mancini, he might be capable of greatness. He's won a Prem and CL with City on here and been 2nd in the Prem twice. I hope they don't go downhill.
  13. Good to see some extreme loyalty to Malaga there. I also had that American invite, seems like a sign of increasing rep. Can only mean good things, I just hope a new stadium is in sight. I took the Spain job after 2014 World Cup where they crashed out in the group stages. Thought I'd have a little fun: But then.. I'm so disappointed. Not what I wanted at all, he and I were quickly becoming friends. Definitely don't want the job, but I just hope they get a solid replacement.
  14. And he's 33 on my game. It doesn't mean he's not still world class. It just seems a bit silly to me to replace a player for the sake of it, at great cost.
  15. I really think you might aswell keep Demichelis. I'm halfway through my 4th season now and he's still playing most matches. He's taken a slight paycut while every other player is demanding more and still has an average rating in the league of 7.72 this season. I'll probably have replaced him by the end of the season, but I want him to stay.
  16. I'm actually glad I didn't edit to foreground actually. For my 4th season I've been given the option of only Champions League Qualifying as an expectation after consecutive league wins. Little to no pressure to succeed, and a decent budget. £29m with £1.5m wages, but I'm only current spending £770k on wages.. so.. adjusted I get £58m and £990k. That's more than I need.
  17. That's my 3rd season done. Won La Liga by a bit more than just the point this time, ecstatic with that, but I don't think Barca are exactly 'down and out' yet. Or Real.. Happy with the Euro Cup win. Bit disappointed with the Spanish Cup loss, but I had the Euro Cup finals, followed by 2 potentially league deciding matches in the space of 6 days, so there was no way I could play my best squad. Barca offered Leandro to me for 15m, so I went with it.. not sure where he'll fit in though, Kadlec and Muniain are doing really well upfront.
  18. That is actually really useful, thanks. I did wonder why some players were 10 years to gain nationality and some 2. It should definitely be in the OP.
  19. I had this exact problem since the first week. I ended up just releasing him start of season 3. Was really really annoying me.
  20. Board just agreed to expand my stadium, having already bought it. Going up to 35k. Not much of an increase, but better than nothing.
  21. Nearing January in my 3rd season. Having won the league last year (however flukey it may have been), you'd think maybe Barca and Real might have taken a knock. Nope. I'm sitting 4 points behind both after 16 games. They've both won 15 and lost 1. I really cannot see how I can possibly get 1st or 2nd this season. I know it's only 4 points, but there's absolutely no guarantee that they'll drop that many. I suppose the bright side is that I can't really fault the team. It's a pretty solid squad.
  22. For a keeper, Itumeleng Khune is amazing. Besiktas beat me to him first season and only paid £875k. I then paid £8m January of the 2nd season. I maintain that he was worth it though. So far, overall, 27 league appearances for me, 15 clean sheets and conceded 17. Whereas Caballero conceded 64 in 57 league games for me... Kadlec really is coming along well. edit: As I said that, while I was writing this post, he scored a hattrick against Deportivo.
  23. I had him in the demo (different save to my one now) for £20m transfer fee and the max contract that could be offered... he wasn't worth it. Just signed Fleck on a free, was pretty pleased, he'll make decent cover for the Starting XI and I've always liked him.
  24. Thanks for all the DM suggestions, but I opted to just promote to MC and demote my AMC to MC. I bought Ramsey for 20m, most over 48 months. He seemed better value for money than most DMs. edit: Instant impact. Goal against Real on his debut in the Super Cup second leg. We won 3-2 on agg.
