C'mon, you could've at least changed the opening peice - you even spelt 'buy' wrong, like me!

But DW, at least we have one now.

TBF, there's not much else to change.

And don't buy Rafinha, Srna look pretty good, try him.

Purchased Barry from Villa and Young got ****ed off and asked to be transfer listed at which point Villa offered him out and currently it seems the entire mid-table of the Premier league has made an offer for him (Spurs, Man city, Bolton, Newcastle, West Ham, Tottenham, Everton, Portsmouth, Sunderland).

No deal. Barry is not worth that much. Have a look at Diarra or Veloso.

Unsure weather he is worth it or not, need to strengthen a few positions so I need a cheap-ish CB who will be solid. Stat-wise he looks good enough although no world beater, what do others think?

Player Name: Gomis

Your Team: Sunderland

Buyer/Seller: St. Etienne

Player Value: £5.75 million

Offer: £10 million over 24 months plus 50 percent sell on (this is the best I could get)

Transfer/Wage Budget: £14 million

Patch: 9.0.1

Season: 1st season

Really need a striker for Sunderland someone who can put the ball in the back of the net and partner either Kenwyne Jones or Cisse depending on which one is fit. This is the only offer they will accept, should I do it?

HoPeY - I would go for it I might give him a look on my Sunderland game if I fail to get Gioda, might get him even if I do get Gioda though.

Thandui - I think thats a lot of money but if its the only position you need to strengthen then go for it, didnt realise Spurs had so much cash!

AcidBurn:

Gomis is a good little player on FM09, his only downside is he gets caught offside alot! So I would suggest you tell him to "un-learn" that if you do buy him.

As for the price, you can usually get him for £8Million with a 50% sell on clause. However if you say that's the best you can get then I would still accept. He will get you goals mate, I'd say deal. :thup:

Cardozo is another option, he can be brought for around £6Million!

Thanks for your advice btw :)

Do you have a replacement lined up if you sell him? That is a good offer, so I'd be tempted to sell him mate :thup:

23drd23

Any replacement lined up? Mutu is a good player but he is getting on elsewhere. I'd be tempted to sell him and buy someone younger for alot less than that.

Not anyone in particular. I have Balotelli on loan and can use that cash to make the purchase, but otherwise ive not really found anyone to my liking. Do you have anyone to recommend?

Player Name: Matt Murray

Buyer/Seller: Crystal Palace

Player Value: £850k

Offer: £1.1m

Transfer/Wage Budget: Wages 8k p/w over budget

Patch: 9.0.1

He's always getting injured, but he's still reasonably young for a goalkeeper, but i'm almost promoted and i doubt he'll be much good in the prem either.

Also

Player Name: Lomano Lua Lua

Buyer/Seller: Some team who's name i forgot

Player Value: 350k

Offer: End Of Contract

Transfer/Wage Budget: End of Contract

Do you think it's possible he can perform in the prem? Scouts say he'd be a great signing but i'm still a championship team, so i don't know if he'd make the jump.

Thanks!

- I'd sell Matt Murray, that's a good offer and if he is always getting injured that's another reason to cut your loses.

- Unsure what Lua Lua looks like on FM09, what are his wage demands like? If there not too high he might be worth a risk but I would only really see him as a rotation/squad player not a key player for your EPL adventure.

Yeah, as for Murray, i think i might use his transfer fee to buy Ron-Robert Zieler from Man Utd who has been amazing for me this season.

And as for Lua-Lua, He's asking for 2.3k a week, which i don't think is too bad considering Bobo Balde wanted 27k lol :)

Think i'll risk it before Reading make an offer.

Where are you playing Mutu? AML? ML? Or up-front?

Up front with Gilardino in a 4-3-1-2. Have Balotelli on loan as back up, but ive sold Pazzini

If you can get Balotelli for sure with the funds raised by Mutu's transfer I'd go for it, although I must admit I rate Mutu highly his age is the only slight problem which is why I'm saying sell. :thup:

Ive decided to keep him in the end as Mutu is the best player on the team atm. Im hoping that ill make enough from Champions League gate revenue (and some sales of peripheral players) to be able to pay for Balotelli and the end of the loan.

Thanks for your input though, HoPeY

Your Team: QPR

Buyer/Seller: Reading

Player Value: £2.9million

Offer: £7.6million

Transfer/Wage Budget: £8.9million

Patch: 9.0.1

Season: 1

Im looking for a goal scorer because i dont think Rowan Vine or Patrick Agyemang have what it takes. Ive got Angelo Balanta and Victor Moses but they are both prospects whereas i need a goal scorer now. I personally think this is too much to pay for Doyle so if you think the same do you have any suggestions on who i could buy instead?

After ive signed Victor Moses, Eduardo and Tordoya i will have £8.9million left. I am looking at loaning Gibson as well.
