Re: *Official Football Manager Discussion Thread*
I’m currently Portsmouth, 15th with 19 points so far, with them I feel that I’ve done pretty well considering the squad I have. Received at least three million quid and decided to sell John Utaka, Danny Webber, Jamie Ashdown, and Boateng and brought in Adam Johnson from Middlesbrough, Senderous from Arsenal, and Benjani on a season long loan.
My forwards have done absolutely shite though, even Benjani. Current main strikers are Benjani (loan), Tommy Smith, Kanu, Piquionne, Dindane (loan). Tried bringing in Ronaldo after about the second league came as he joined Newcastle whilst I was in a career with them and banged in the goals, he just wouldn’t budge this time. Between the strikers, they’ve only scored at least 6 goals, 4 for Piquionne, 1 for Dindane, and another for Benjani, who has underperformed so far.
Horrific start to the season but changing tactics put things right. January is approaching and definitely going to try and search for a new striker, and defender, some of them just slip up at times. The midfield is definitely the best part of my team. Tommy Smith is 'gonna to be sold, only featured once in Carling Cup, which I lost to Blackpool.
