Welcome here, it's time to start this Barnsley F.C. save, if you're a fan I beg your pardon for the logo, I don't like the original one so I made my own logo for this career. First of all I need to say thanks to @Jamesbfc1887, his first season struggle with the Tykes was really inspiring, being a Championship lover I managed Barnsley before and I know something about the club, but before reading his thread I didn't know how much I needed to play with them once again. I'm playing with the original database (75000 people) with no edit. I perfectly agree with Chien Lee (Barnsley new owner) words regarding how he usually runs his business: I'm not sure if he really knows what to buy, unfortunately for the Barnsley fans he surely knows what to sell, for example he sold many of the club top assets recently: Moore, Pinnock and Lindsay above all, without replacing them properly. We're media predicted to finish 24th, so they give us no hope to stay up, but we have a different plan. What the board want I have no problem with focusing on young players, the club needs to grow up and bringing in hot prospects with potential looks like a viable option, in this first transfer window I signed mainly under 22 players, I agree with self-sustainability as well, playing entertaining football it's a different story though... The main goal of this first season is to survive but afterwards we're going to start what our owner defined "the internationalization of the club", to promote Barnsley all over the world. The players I signed I set some rules regarding loans fir this first season, no more than 5 of them and all the loan should have a "reasonable" agreed price clause, I'm not going to nurture players without having the chance to sign them on a permanent basis. Nicholas Opoku, Cd, 21 yrs, 2M agreed price Torben Musel, St, 20 yrs, 375k Zaydou Youssouf, Mc, 20 yrs, 3.5M Birama Tourè, Dmc, 27 yrs, 500k Mitch Clark, Dr/l, 20 yrs, 2M I sold Cavarè (injury prone and with expiring contract) and Thiam (useless for my system) for a sum of 1.8M that was added (95%) to my transfer budget of 2.9M used to sign the following men: Harry Toffolo, left back, 24 yrs, 575k Hampus Finndell, Mc, 19 yrs, 500k Aurelien Nguiamba, 800k The system I'm planning to use, could it work? Thanks for reading, feel free to share your thoughts and...Up the Tykes!
