Re: *Official Football Manager Discussion Thread*

So my Aston Villa season went tits up, was 15th board weren't confident enough to give me more time kept being linked with being sacked even though we were through to the semi final of the CC albeit against United

I decided just before Christmas 2012 to quit because I was bored, that's how good my attention span is on this game

February 2013 rolls around and I've rejected offers from Sunderland, QPR and Spartak, I accept an offer from Wolfsburg who I figure may give me a bit of time to build, here is the table, results and transfers from the following summer

Finished: 8th
(No European football, will focus solely on youth)

I was kind of irritated I paid soo much for Ljajic but more annoyed Baros, Tiago and that other 34 year old bloke came in, which was pre-agreed to me joining, offered the old chap a mutual termination but he was having none of it, he's on 13k a week for a season, not sure what I can do?

Anyway the rest of the signings are fairly young, I sold Diego because he was 150k a week and he's always unhappy I swear, always has something to whine about so thought whatever, got 8 million and freed up the budget for a few additions, original budget was 12 million with the wage being 110k before Diego left

The Squad is huge, need to really sort it out quickly, going to be playing 4-2-3-1 and really I just wanted loan players to make up for fixture congestion so we'll see how Bruma / Coquelin get on

I'm relatively happy with the business so far even though Rafinha (20), Destro (22), Ljajic (21) and the two loanees aren't going to add much right away in the first 11 so it's a work in progress and those players all for the most part have good potential - may need a suggestion for a new DM though

Transfers thus far


vs Bayern (Last season just after taking over)

My awful stats for those that want a laugh
