  1. Well this is definitely a challenge, can't bring in anyone so the squad will have to do.
  2. Started a game as Nantes, remember them being a decent side in Championship Manager 97/98, and so I wish to replicate that. No money to spend, squad is okay, but no room to improve, this will be a big challenge.
  3. So finally started this challenge, quite later than usual than in previous versions. But I have taken over as Kingstonian And the squad, pretty decent, and I have made a few transfers.
  4. Started a game as Guingamp, mostly because they have little history so the potential is there to make something. First season, finished 2nd in the league, 5 points behind PSG. Transfer wise only Barkroth from Norrkoping came in for the first team and contributed with 16 assists and 6 goals, which is amazing when he only cost me £1m; we made £1.6m back from sales.
  5. Into season 4, and top of the league, have spent £8.7m on players so far mostly African regens with a few Russian players. Out wise, £25m came in, with Martins off to France, my Algerian AM to Barcelona for £4.6m, my CB to Hoffenheim for £2.9m, and lB to RB Leipzig for £1.7m; also lost my Algerian RB to Barcelona for £2.1m rising to £7.5m, Also lost my Ghanaian Target man to Barcelona for £6.5m, bit of a weird one that, he only scored 7 goals in 21 games so why they paid so much I don't know. But on the plus side, this whole buying African regens and selling them for profit is working really well for me, just need to make sure I have enough Russian playesr as well.
  6. 3rd Season, we finally done it, a 1-0 home win against Zenit secured our first title, we played well throughout the season. Transfer wise, deadwood was shipped out, Perea was sold to Villarreal for £5m, our star left back was sold to Porto for £9.5m and our regen winger was sold to Barcelona for £6.25m In came more African regens and some solid Russians to provide back up to the squad. My theme of buying young African regens is starting to pay dividends as more are being sold in Season 4, whilst more are coming in and being scouted.
  7. Had bit of a reality check in my second season, CSKA and Zenit pulled they're fingers out and stormed the league, so Europa League for me next season. Transfers wise a few backup players left and in came Yusopov from Zenit for £1.1m, Martins from Sporting on a free, Brayan Perea from Lazio for £5m, and a few regens. Next year will be a hard one with both Zenit and CSKA strengthening.
  8. Managed to keep most of the squad together in my 2nd season, though lost Hubocan to Everton for £3m and Denisov to Krasnodar. With the money I got in Yusopov from Zenit for £1.1m, Lystsov from Benfica for £1m, Andre Martins from SPorting on a free and Brayan Perea from Lazio for £5.5m As well as a few regens from Africa.
  9. Playing as Dinamo Moscow, it's quite hard to say the least. Losing a lot of money and with no transfer budget, but there are some decent players, finished 2nd in my first season.
  10. Started a save with Sunderland. I always get bored with top flight clubs, but this one will be interesting; no money to spend, a squad full of average players on high wages, this is one hell of a task. Managed to sell Catermole for £7.25m, and bought in a load of loans, most notable one being Green from Bayern.
  11. Started a game with Hellas Verona. Squad is okay, but I only took over as them because of Luca Toni, sold Romulo to Chelsea and brought in Oscar Romero from Racing Club. In the Under 20's I found a little gem, Mohamed Fares; 19 year old Inside Forward currently has 1 and a half star CA with a 5* PA, looks very promising.
  12. Started a game today as Everton, decent side and there is the extra challenge of watching out for the debt which will take a hit on finances, especially for the first season so Europe will be the aim or I may have to sell one of our stars. Looking through the squad it is decent, GK will need improving, defence is solid, midfield is talented and up front Lukaku is a beast. Transfer wise; Kóne, Oviedo and Jags left for a grand total of £5.8m, Andre Dozzell came in for £425k and Gabriel Barbosa for £13.25m. Stones and Barkley are already making noises about moving on, and it won't be until the summer that Lukaku and Deulofeu will want to move as well.
  13. Decided to start a game as The Millers as my mum is from Rotherham. Squad is ageing but should be good enough to stay up, only transfers are Mickael Forssell on a freebie and Jordan Williams on loan from Liverpool. Currently 3rd in the league after 5 games, Jonson Clarke-Harris my top goalscorer with 4 goals, he has the potential just needs a bit of training, if I can get his first touch and passing up then he could be a decent target man, and having played as Ipswich I love my target men!
  14. Finished my 2nd season, came second again on goal difference, Barcelona only scored 20 more goals than me. Aduriz was top goalscorer again with 22 goals, Susaeta with the highest rating. Youth intake wise no one that special, though I have a young striker that one day will take over from Aduriz.
  15. Found that the midfield of midfield is the weakest area of my side, and the only way to improve it is by bringing home Ander Herrera for an intial £29m rising to £46m over two years.
