Re: *Official Football Manager Discussion Thread*
Kurt Zouma had a slow start after signing him on a £25.5m deal, but now that he has settled, the combination of him & Steven Taylor has just been beautiful. Scores frequently, constant clean sheets and no league defeats after 15 games. Using hindsight, shouldn't of signed Inigo Martinez for such cash the year before.
Had to play two 19 year olds for a run of games, with Cabaye and M'Villa injured. Surprisingly done very well. Sought after midfielders with Important Games and Consistency as their strengths, has never let me down. Never sign talented players if their weaknesses are Important Games.
I have a fairly youthful bench, roughly 10 backups. When I play them in League Cup games or European games (got drawn with Besiktas and Dinamo Zagreb in the CL), they play much better than my seniors. They open up more, thats to be expected. But much more enthusiasm going forward. Seniors just win games by 1-0/2-0 advantages. I'll take the latter though I guess, want to win the league much more.
