Re: *Official Football Manager Discussion Thread*
Onto my 3rd season with Newcastle. Jubilant successes, despite the occasional dodgy game & moment.
Carvajal, Benatia, S. Taylor, Santon
ben Arfa, Cisse, Vuckic
Got players like Douglas, Okore, Anita, Guidetti, Merkel, Streete, Marveaux on the bench as backups. A solid side, but does lack that special something.
Successes are, won the Europa League title back to back, FA Cup in the 2nd year and the European Super Cup. Finished 7th the first year round, problems at the start & end of the year. Finished 4th 2nd time around. Felt excellent, that fixture pile-up was pretty gruesome. To secure 2 trophies & the Champions League in the space of 6 days.
Onwards I roll. Will probably keep very strictly to generated players & freebies. No esstential need, but makes it more challenging.
