After the new update with transfers I thought this challenge would be nice to try. Aston Villa is the lucky team that Bas Ferguson takes over.

Manager Profile

With the random face generator FM created a manager that looks quite a bit on the real deal Sir Alex Ferguson. Meet (Sir) Bas Huijsmans.

Competitions

After just one win in 11 games it is quite logic that Aston Villa is placed 19th in the league. Their biggest problem until now is that they only managed to score 4  goals in the league, so that will be the biggest problem to solve. We are already eliminated in the league cup. So the FA Cup is probably the only way to get into Europe for this year. But getting into Europe isn't the goal for this season. We have to survive first!

Wish me luck!

As my transfer embargo rival is Forest, adds a bit of spice to be playing them twice next season!

@Mandy42 Congrats on the FA Cup win right off the bat! Interesting to see what transfers you bring in over the summer, I think you'll be force in the Europa League next season.

My in depth ramblings about the save are here

Though here are just the transfers for my 1st full year

11.thumb.jpg.2c1d16db419c8381cf48902ee753aef3.jpg

I can sign 11, so I signed 11! Well I was done at 8, but my youth development manager brought in Clinton Mola and Ridel Richards, I have since told him no more! Or I will fail the challenge! Then the perfect storm happened. Ruben Neves was unsettled at Wolves, I was reminded I had a promise to fulfil to strengthen the squad and the money was there to buy him, so yeah I went and got him. Shackleton has gone straight back to Leeds on a season long loan, Richards is nowhere near ready for 1st team action and Jocu is going to be loaned out, the rest might find at least 1 start in the team throughout the course of the year.

I postponed the signing of this guy until next season so as not to sign more players than allowed in a single season, that's within the rules right?
