Yeah I'm still playing. I'm currently with West Ham in my forth season. Got a truckload of money after being taken over, i'm getting budgets of 150 mil each season. Basically had a complete overhaul of the team, which is currently owning hard. Lukaku, Aguero and Neymar all play up front, with David Silva on the left, a rotation of Veloso/Hamsik/Pirlo in the center and Young out on the right. Then in defense I have Diego Renan/Sahko/Otamendi/Simunek/Jagielka and keepers are Akinfeev/Ochoa. Came about 6th in the first season, then runners up, then champions last season. Currently coming 1st after 17 games, 3 points clear of Liverpool. Have a goal difference of +35 as well, with 50 goals scored in those 17 games. Lukaku has 11 goals in 12 appearances, while Young is favourite to win World Footballer of the Year, ahead of Messi, Ronaldo and Lukaku.

Currently 8th in the League challenging for the top 6.
Balotelli for 5 mil + Abidal is an amazingly win deal for you. Abidal deteriorates very quickly, while Balotelli becomes amazing.
I was offered Dzeko for 6.75 mil, but I already had Neymar/Aguero/Lukaku owning hard, so i rejected. Also had the same choice with Adler, but Ochoa and Akinfeev are already two of the best in the game.
*Starting eleven for league games pending fitness.
with them (consistant team for 2/3 years now) ive won everything ive came up against, except the super cup...ive won that twice in my career, for some reason the little asian team or south american team always seem to beat me in the final of it. Im sure its a bug lol
oh and all my players are worth atleast 10 million to me which is impresive sine macheda starts the game at like a few hundred thousand i think and rafaels is worth about 2 million.
