  1. Has anyone used Fridjonsson when back from loan. I am just into my 2nd season and had a ton of bids for him so decided to keep him in the squad. He actually does very well in league games as an AML. I will try and post my progress on my save
  2. Just started reading the thread today but I will keep following, fascinating read. I have only just started my second season in my first save! All the best in Bulgaria
  3. I am just about to go into my second season. In my first season I really struggled at times, I did still win the league and league cup double but I failed miserably with only 1 win in the champions’ league group stage. Ill post my signings up later and update on my progress going into the 2nd season. For those that have played a few seasons how does Rogic progress, I have sent him on loan again as I don’t play with a AMC so was not really using him.
  4. ^^^ Good job! Sorry for my lack of updates not had as much game time in. I have come to the end of my third season where I finished 10th so solid progression from 16th. Im hoping for a nice top half finish with perhaps European qualification. I rejected the Arsenal and Man Utd jobs so in this for the long haul. I would like to get my English player quota up. I only having a few that would start.
  5. End of the 2nd season I finished 16th so i survived. Pretty annoyed though as did not win any of my last 6 games so at one point I was looking at a top half finish after a great run in Jan and Feb. Another challenge awaits next season! Lets try and improve and push up that league.
  6. A quick update. Just into Jan on second season and its been a bit of a struggle, sitting 18th but only 2 points behinh 12th so its fairly tight. I am not converting enough chances, when I win I always win confortable and I always seem to lose by 1 goal. Board have handed me 4M so hopefully I can get a couple of players in and stay up come then end of the season.
  7. Bodgan was actually fine for me in the championship but I replaced him after promtion.
  8. So heading into the second season the transfer window did not go as I had planned. As I was warned the board handed me a budget of 2M and 300K wages which was going to be a challenge, many of the players also received an increase wage due to promotion so this ate into the wage budget. I had also anticipated high bids for Lee but this did not materialise, I had no offers so perhaps my asking price was too high. This meant I had little to work with so in a way the challenge is more interesting. Another factor is I brought over 4M in sales but see very little of this hitting my budget so all my transfers have been on a free or on loan. I moaned to the board most weeks before the window closed but so far they have not budged. Transfers In David Ospina – Free. My first signing after going up. Cracking keeper, delighted with the signing. Been excellent so far as well in the league. Vladimir Weiss – Free. Another early signing, has taken the wide left role from Eagles so far. Cristian Ansaldi – Loan. Another good signing who is likely to be the first choice LB. Geoffrey Kondogbia – Loan. I failed with my bids to get Jay Spearing back as he went to Villa and I really struggled to get a decent DM in but this youngster has been excellent so far claiming the young player of the month in Aug. Tomas Kalas – Loan. Another stop gap loan signing to boost the squad, has done well so far. Jorge Molina – 100K. I really struggled to find a target man striker with many failed bids and not being able to afford players wages. I opted to bring in Molina who has good stats but is a bit slow. So far so good, he has 5 goals although 4 of these came in the league cup against Ipswich. Adam le Fondre – Loan. The hero last season with 16 goals after his Jan loan moved so I decided to bring him back as I was needing more numbers. Olaf Melberg – Free. Late signing but still a decent player. Will likely only play for the season before I look to build. David Jarolim – Free. Another stop gap veteran signing to boost the midfield numbers, likely to be backup. Hera are my transfers out, mainly players who were on the fringes of my team anyway. One disadvantage are most are British and I brought mainly foreign players in. Transfers Out N’Gog – Wolves 2.5M. Perhaps I could have got more for him. He was injured for most of my first season but when he returned he did not impress so decided to sell. Mears – Burnley 300K. Didn’t feature much so happy to sell. Pratley – Huddersfield 675K. Was on loan at Charlton when I joined so never featured for me and wasn’t in my plans, happy with the fee I got. Lonergan – Huddersfield 100K. Was backup but due to the signing of Ospina not needed. Wheater – Sheff Wed 1M. Another who never featured through injury so happy to sell. Mills – Norwich Loan. I was tempted to keep Matt as backup but I ended up bringing in Mellberg so I accepted the loan. Tbh was 3rd choice last season and seem to get booked too often or make silly mistakes. So as I mentioned not the signings I would have anticipated so the challenge is most definitely trying to stay up and build from there. My biggest concern is injuries to central midfield. I am playing with a DM and two CMs but I don’t have great depth to cover injuries so I might need to rethink that if it happens. I have played 5 league games and one league cup and the results are Bolton 1 – 2 Arsenal Wolves 1 – 0 Bolton Ipswich 3 – 6 Bolton (LC) Bolton 1 – 1 Swansea West Ham 2 – 2 Bolton Bolton 4 – 0 Reading Fairly happy with the recent form after two narrow defeats to start so it’s looking ok but the fixtures have been fairly kind. I will provide an update in Jan with how progress is going and provide some screenshots (rather than type this at work! )
  9. I only managed a couple of hours last night but secured promtion with 3 games to spare so ill post my 2nd season transfers when they happen.
  10. I have recently started a Bolton save after starting the game unemployed. I got the job in November with Bolton sitting 16th in the championship. The squad was riddled with injuries but things have gone very well. I have got the team to the top of the league with 8 games to go. I have a 10 point cushion from 3rd place Huddersfield so promotion looks good. I was dumped out the FA cup though by Newcastle in the 3rd round. My main tactics is a 4-1-2-2-1 but sometimes I switch to a straightforward 4-4-2 with Davies acting as a TM. I sold Holden in Jan for 5M to boost the finances and Pertov and Davies will be released at the end of the season. N’Gog is out for the season with a cruciate injury. Signings in Jan were Jonathan (Inter – Loan), Le Fondre (Reading - Loan), Espinosa (Barcelona B – 200K) My team is usually ---------------Le Fondre/Sordell---------------- Eagles--------------------------------------------Lee ---------------Davies-----Andrews--------------- ---------------------Spearing------------------------- Alonso-----Knight-------Ream----Jonathan/Ricketts ---------------------Bogdan-------------------------- Star player has been Lee, he has been exceptional as a right winger chipping in with 10 goals and 19 assists so far. Eagles has been good as well playing as an inside forward on the left. Le Fondre has been a goal a game since coming in on loan in Jan to replace the injured N’Gog. I will update the thread as I go with hopefully next season in the prem.
  11. Yes when I was younger No Yes Yes No Yes
  12. Im just into Feb of my first season and so far coasting it in the league after a patchy start with many draws but only lost once so far. I qualified for the champs league but got a group of AC Milan, Valencia and PSG so ended up 4th with 5 points. I am mainly playing a 4-4-1-1, using Miku/Commons/Formica behing Hooper. However I have a decent 4-4-2 which I use in SPL home games. I had a bit of an injury crisis in August where Waynama and Ledley both were out fro 4 months so I had to bring in loan cover. Hopper has been scoring regulary. Transfers In Fernando Meira - decent stop gap free transfer, was a regular at the start of the season but on the bench now Jeremy Berthod - free transfer back up LB Glenn Whelan - loan, actually been very good Formica - loan, been ok nothing special wont be making transfer permanent Gary Mackay-Stevens - 2.1M, brought him in on Jan as he was on list and West Brom put a bit in, been decent so far Transfers Out Kelvin Wilson - 500K Stokes - 1.2M Bangura - Free Ambrose - 200K
  13. Iv not posted in years but thought I would give an update on my game. I somehow managed to win the double in my 1st season after a great run at the end of the season after I switched from 4-4-2 to a 4-3-2-1. My 2nd season has started very well won 7 and drew 1 of my first 8. Baba is on fire with 20 goals in 12 games. I will stick some screenshots up at the end of the season and write up my progress.
  14. Two South African I remember being amazing were Leobhang Mokoena and Junior Kayne I remember once in a Celtic game Kayne got twelve 10 ratings in a row
