Interesting breakdown. It's a good team, with some players i know: I lost Martial on end contract as he choose Barcelona, while Loftus-Cheek didn't improve much in my save and it's still 2,5 stars. Conti is for sale, and with Tete wanting to join PSG, I could bring him in (but I'd prefer to keep Tete).

As long as I can keep the squad together without the likes of City offering silly money and upsetting players I think I won't be too busy in the market at all. 

I'd like to start a season without first choice players being grumpy at my refusal to allow them to leave for nothing!

@fabreth @Jamie Cortez Thanks guys I appreciate it.

@Jamie Cortez I would kill for your wingers, and I also had the same problem for a long time, I figured out that if you talk to the player and get an agreed value to sell teams rarely match it. Also congrats on 3rd place after a rough start. 

@fabreth It sucks losing a talented player for free, I lost 4 star striker Lucas Alario to Real Madrid on a free in my 4th season, he got transfer listed due to playing time right after his 1st season there. And yeah I feel your pain I have players asking for new deals every week as well.

Casually lookiing through all the usual South American sides looking for any decent regens i came across this guy



Looks like he will be one of the best CD in the world....But Real Madrid are already interested...so i am not likely to compete for his signature!

Big Steps for Swansea going into S4. The board finalised the purchase of the liberty stadium and then immediately announced works to increase the capacity by over 10k seats.

We are playing in Bristol City's stadium for this season with only a 30M transfer kitty ( i assume to the outgoings on the stadium.

signed 3 regen's only, i did manage to nip Real Madrid to the CB above!

West Ham 2020-21 season

Transfers: With last year transfer window, I had a complete squad in every role so this year there wasn't much work to do, besides, with the registration rules, there wasn't much space. My objective was a top striker, as Hernandez and Bony are starting to get old, and an AMC to replace the departure of Lanzini. Schick(meeting his release fee) and Krovinovic were the choices. Then I found two bargains: Zobnin, a jolly who can play in various roles and was useful as a central midfieldere and WBR as a Tete alternative, and Richard, a 20yo wonderkid AMC.



The season: I knew I had an excellent squad, but didn't think it was THAT good. In honesty, there was a bit of luck involved, but nonetheless, it was great! A pity with that FA Cup, as I would have done a difficult milestone! There are players out of the top 11 who deserved a place there, all with an average over 7. Btw, solid defence, great strikers, and the wingbacks, keys of the tactic.



In detail: Our explosive attack won us the league, as we won only on goal difference. It was a season between us and Man Utd. The Community Shield lost on penalties, and the FA Cup round lost to them. Instead, in the league, we won both encounters. Let's forget about the CarabaoCup, and then the Champions League: after a bad start, the rampage began, and I couldn't believe it. Bayern, City, Juventus and PSG in the end, won in a similar way to the Europa League last year, with a goal in the last minutes! I was lucky in the away legs in Munich and Turin, I think I deserved to lose. Then, that 5-1 at home was the key, gave us great confidence. In that period I lost some important points in the League, could have secured the title before, instead of waiting until the last game, and waiting minute 81 in the home of Bournemouth for the decisive goal. Look at the ratings, Schick and Martinez on top!



Intake: well it's not a youth challenge but I rely on youth from our academy, and this year we have in Akeem Young one labeled to be "one of the best of his generation"! And also a keeper and a defender who doesn't seem too bad.



Calculation time!

Milestone: PL within 7 seasons: 500 pt

Champions League Win: 1000 pt

Premier League Win: 200 pt

UEFA Super Cup Win: 200 pt

Total Points: 1900

@fabreth What a season!!! Great job on the Premier League, Champions League, and Super Cup victories. That Champions League run is crazy, having to beat Bayern, Juve, Man City, and PSG. Your squad is coming together very nicely. I really wish there was a way to import teams because I would love to have my Everton squad play against the teams you, @Jamie Cortez, and @Beric Dondarrion have put together.

Just a summer update.

1st the transfers 


My 1st transfer in is Benjamin Henrichs, I've been eyeing for 2-3 years now and I finally pulled the triggers, 60 mil isn't too steep considering he's a top player at a shallow position. Next is Nathan Redmond who I picked up on a free from Tottenham, I brought him in to rotate with Lookman on the left wing. My last transfer was Brazilian regen CB Marco Antonio, I bought him because I was going to let Rieldewald go to Real Madrid, but they low balled me using the stupid add on crap and I couldn't adjust the offer so Rieldewald stays here. Antonio has crazy good defensive stats ( 15 marking, and tackling, 17 heading and 15 jumping reach, his physicals are probably the best I have ever seen in a 22 year old CB). As for the outs nothing too major Schniderlin and Coleman were both north of 31 and the rest are youth players who wouldn't make the team. Fun fact only Lukaku, Tom Davies, Ross Barkley, Ademola Lookman, and Mason Holgate are left from the original team I took over.

Super Cup


We beat OL, Lacazette scored one for them Belotti scored 3 for me, a lot more entertaining then the Community Shield was. This is my 1st Super CUp win after losing to Tottenham the year I won the Europa League. Also OL was the last save I played before starting this challenge so it's good to see that Lacazette stayed. 

Community Shield 


I hate playing Tottenham more than any other team in the league. Every game is a fight and they never go away. They still have all their main guys and added players like FIrmino, Alexander-Arnold, and Carrasco. This game was as sloppy as it comes, the game went to PKs, they missed one, we made them all.

+ 200 22/23 Super Cup

+50 22/23 Community Shield 

= +250 points


Edit: I just looked and I'm finally a Legend at Everton

West Ham 2021-22 pre-season

Just a pre-season update. Didn't went as well as @JaytheGreat. The tranfers: Rejuvenation of the defence, with the departure of Reid and Ogbonna and the arrival of Joe Gomez. Jakub Zak is a 18yo czech forward, labeled as wonderkid, and then Makumbi, a 21yo ugandan defender. Was on free, seemed a bargain, I loaned him out as there wasn't space in the registration list, and we'll re-evaluate his position next season, hope he will improve. Didn't need so much tranfers also because reinforcements also come from our youths: Robertson and Walsh are ready to make their appearance in the squad.

Competitions: No early trophy this time, as we lost both matches. Against Chelsea in the local one, and that was a delusion, awful match on our part. And Against Atletico in the Euro Super Cup. This time the extra-time was against us, but then again it wasn't a great match on our part.

@fabreth I know it wasn't an ideal start to the preseason, but you had a good transfer period and your squad looks strong.

Another season, means more trophies for Everton. We got embarrassed in the 3rd round of the League Cup by Crystal Palace at their place. Also we got knocked out in the Quarterfinals 5-5 on away goals by Real Madrid, but we ended up winning the Premier League and the FA Cup.

Premier League: Won



We won the league easy as we finished 15 points ahead of the 2nd place Man Utd. I'm kinda upset we didn't make 100 points, oh well there's always next year. Keane had a bounce back year but Zouma is by far our best CB. New additions Ben Henrichs and Marco Antonio slid right in and played their roles nicely. Nathan Redmond played well when he got his time. Disappointing season for Zivkovic but Lookman picked up most of the slack on the other reason. Winter addition CM Thiago from Brazil played ok in a half of a season, I expect more from him last season. Gave some game time to our 2 wonderkids, they played ok Brown really picked it up towards the end of the year.

FA Cup: Won


We scraped by some bad teams with some really bad performances, but then we did what we needed to do against Man Utd, Chelsea, then dominating Nottingham Forest in the Final


Swiped this gem for $16.5 mil pretty much because I could, and he's good and was cheap. He rotates with Tom Davies at the starting DLP position, he'll see how he fits in with a preseason under his belt.



Both are going to be pretty good in the future, Brown started off pretty slow but like I mentioned above really improved at the end of the season. The future is bright for prospects going out of the academy.

The squad is getting a little bloated so I'm looking to sell this offseason, the main contenders to leave are Rieldewald, Pierre - Emile Hojbjerg, and Luis Herrera ( I don't feel like paying him what he wants) and I suppose we will see what others I get offers for, I got some more Regens I have my eyes on

Another Manager of the Year for me 


+200 points 22/23 FA Cup

+200 22/23 Premier League

+500 Milestone Win Three Premier League/FA Cup doubles within Thirteen Seasons

+900 Total Points

Well with FM19 round the corner I needed something to get my interest back into FM18 so here I am for a go at this. So we are off to the south coast. Certainly going to help with the Academy aspect. Might even try and focus on the academy with just the odd purchase.

One thing I do like in the newer FM's is the ability to buy and sell the transfer clauses

liverpool 1st!
we won everything as simple as that, surprised how easy it was this year i hope every year continues the same way.
very happy with the squad performance and blooded a few youngsters, dybala has had a monstrous season again taking all accolades.  will be looking to get some more game time to youngsters next term as you can see we have a great team and balance in depth.
probably over spent on assensio and actually been disappointing with a few injuries and no goals. hopefully after some time and a pre season he will be more suited to the inside forward role and will produce what i know he can do.
s.m-savic worth the price tag to good not to have bossing the midfield had a fantastic partnership with arthur this year.
a few youngsters my scouts rated highly as well as a good backup for robertson at LB.
hoping to blood him this year but so much firepower will make it hard for the sole youth intake graduate.
Challenge Progress

Domestic Titles

2/13 Premier League Titles
