    I have been considering using him there but I don't tend to use an Attacking Midfielder. I would have to change my formation to fit him in which I'm not overly keen on doing.

    Hereford FC - Premier League - 2029/30 A very up and down season for us this year. We started well enough being around mid table and then had a massive slump and fell just 1 point before the relegation zone. Thankfully we picked up and had a good run of form towards the end of the season, although we drew a lot of those games we should have won them so I saw a lot of positives. Hopefully we can finally crack the top half soon. League Table Past Positions Cups - I wanted to reach a cup final so I went for it in the Carabao Cup however Man United knocked us out in the semi final. FA Cup as a quick exit in round 4. Squad - I have stocked up on a few too many midfielders and my defence is weak at the wing back positions. I'm screaming out for a class striker as my current strikers miss a lot of opportunities. A revamp is needed soon. Finances - Plenty in the bank despite spending £109m on new players. Transfers - I sold £60m worth of talent over the season. with Sutcliffe going for a potential £40m. I panicked and overspent on Gale, hopefully he can come good. Key Player Profiles: Berat Haxhaj - Bought 2 years ago for £4.5m and now worth £35m. Needs to score a bit more but a very good player. Peter Deutschmann - Had a £4.9m release fee which I hit last summer to sign. Great first season. Joao Rodrigues - Top scorer with again this season with 17. Just needs to convert more chances as misses lots. Next Season Aims Break into the top 10. We are not far off doing this and then hopefully can really push on. Other News My homegrown star Garner played 30 times in the first team as a 16 year old this season and did pretty well. I cant decide if I should use him in midfield or upfront however.

    Hereford FC - Premier League - 2028/29 So season 3 in the Premier League didn't quite go as smoothly as I would have liked. I started with my 4231 formation and was hopeful we would do well. We started off OK reaching a high point of 8th before we hit a slump and dropped right down the table to 17th. At this point I feared the worst and with 7 games to go I abandoned the 4231 experiment and I decided to go back to the narrow 433 which got us here in the first place. We then won 4 of our next 7 games and finished in 14th just 4 points behind 9th. The last 2 seasons I have gone backwards since trying to change around the tactics to play a more stylish brand of football. I'm going to go back to the 433 and hopefully break into the top half next season. League Table Past Positions Cups - Early exits. I would like a nice cup run soon. A final would be nice to reach. Squad - I still lack strength in certain areas and hopefully I can improve that this summer. I will also look to ship out some deadwood and bring in the correct players for a 433 again. Finances - Massive profits this season as I didn't go mad on transfers. Transfers - I almost made a profit on transfers this season with a £3m net spend. Sutcliffe was my most expensive signing but his performances as a winger have made me decide to go wingerless again! He is somehow wanted by Arsenal and Liverpool so if I can get a good offer I'll let him leave. Key Player Profiles: James Garner - My youth gem had the highest average rating this season! 2 goals and 2 MOM's in just 9 appearances for a 15/16 year old. Dave Sutcliffe - £26m spent on this guy. 5 assists and 3 goals from the wing wasnt good enough. Still one of the better average ratings however. Joao Rodrigues - Top scorer with 14. I need more from my main striker. Did have Wolfsburg sniffing around in the winter. Next Season Aims Mid table/Top half finish. Maybe a cup run to a final Other News The new stadium is to be expanded again and we now have a presence in China as we partnered with Quanjian.

    My first good youth player. Could be the "player of his generation" I'm looking forward to seeing how this goes!

    @XaW Wow. I presume that was the majority of your budget. Putting a lot of trust in a single player. I struggled to justify a £26m purchase just in case he flops!

    Had my first international job offer and its a big one. Had to decline it for the time being. I would like a crack at it once/if I finish the challenge!

    Hereford FC - Premier League - 2027/28 Our second season in the Premier League was upon us and handed with a £100m transfer kitty I had planned to revamp the squad, change the tactics and improve on last season. I had a nightmare for the most part. Originally I wanted to go with a 433 formation with wingers instead of 3 out and out strikers to play a better style of football. That failed miserably early on and I spent the rest of the season struggling with tactics going back to my original tactic for a while and then in the end I began experimenting with a deep 4231/4411 hybrid formation which saw us pull away from trouble and finish in a respectable 12th position. League Table Past Positions Cups - Shock exit in the Carabao to Ipswich. We made it to the 6th round of the FA Cup before a defeat to Norwich. This was before I settled on a tactic. Squad - I struggled to find the right players for the new systems I was using. In the end I was playing some players out of position but things picked up. I will probably have another clear out this season. Got a couple of really good players but the majority arent really good enough. Finances - Just under £50m in the bank. Not bad considering I spent £80m on transfers! Transfers - £78m spent and only recouped £8.5m. I made a loss on Jack Nairn as he didn't perform and whilst I was messing around with systems he was sold as I thought I was going winger less. I have now gone back to wingers so I lost money on him. Key Player Profiles: Jack Gardiner - £6m steal for the Canadian International. Chipped in well. Bradley Alexandre - £14.75m is a steal for this guy. Only 18 years old. He is the future. Marius Cristian - Another good season. Spent some time on left mid to help out the squad and did well. Next Season Comfortable survival is the aim Other News The new stadium is getting expanded already and with a bit of luck I can improve most of my facilities again.

    Managed to persuade this guy to join me. Looks insane for 17 years old and will be joining me on January 1st. £14.75m is a steal!

    Hereford FC - Premier League - 2026/27 After back to back promotions from League One to the Premier League I was worried that our squad wasn't strong enough to survive. The board gave me £23m to spend on new recruits of which I only spent £11.75m as I really struggled to find new players of sufficient quality. We amazingly won our first game 5-1 against West Brom but then we had consecutive 6-1 defeats to Man United and Arsenal which brought the mood crashing back down. We didn't manage to put together a good run this season and we only won consecutive games 3 times this season and our best run was a 3 game unbeaten streak. Thankfully we did manage to pick up enough victories and were never In any danger despite this. In the end we finished a comfortable 11th. League Table Past Positions Cups - I threw in the towel in the Carabao Cup to concentrate on the league. I tried to do the same in the FA Cup and we made it to round 5 before getting knocked out which was exactly what I wanted. Squad - The squad is in an okay position but needs a lot of work to try to compete again in the League. I have decided to abandon the 433 narrow formation for next season as I started to try new formations towards the end of the season when safe to try and improve the defence as we conceded the highest amount of goals in the league. We did manage to score the most which was a surprise but I want to change to something I feel may help going forward. Finances - Premier League money is insane! £79.5m profit this season!! Transfers - I spent half the transfer budget I was given on 9 new players with my most expensive purchase being £3.3m. I dont envisage many of these sticking around to long as I dont think they are of sufficient quality and hopefully as my reputation improves I can buy better players. Key Player Profiles: Ben Wright - My top scorer who started as part of my front 3 but got moved out onto the left wing for the last 6 games. Marius Cristian - £1.1m was a steal for this guy. Plays the Mezzala role very well. Alexandr Terentjev - £2.3m signing to be the main striker. 18 league goals was a great return for the 18 year old. Next Season Survive again Improve facilities Other News We will move into our new stadium next season and over this season I have put money into all of our facilities which I aim to get up to scratch over the coming years.

    My best result of the season! I am now over the magical 40 point mark in the Premier League and with 6 games to go I am virtually assured survival!

    I have only just began work on improving my youth. I should have probably began earlier like you and then I may have had a few gems come through!
