Re: **Official Football Manager Thread**
I haven't reached above it myself but my friend done it once and said it becomes boring as you don't know any of the players and TBH i don't really plan on ever getting that far into a game no matter how much i enjoy it.
Anyway. Reney! I told you i was going to go Atletico and give them another chance but i chose not too as i really didn't want too. I thought about Juve for a while but then remembered you saying how good your season with Barca was and how you love going them so i thought why not try them and i did.
I am currently in March in the first season and am top by 6 points. Still to play second place Real at Nou Camp. I got a draw with them away which surprised me as usually they beat me. I am in the quarter finals of the Champions league after beating Manchester United 7-2 on Agg with a 6-2 win coming at Old Trafford. Also in the final of the Copa Del Rey.
Anyway. I started with 30m for saying i would win the league which is very unusual for me as usually they start with 13.5 or something but after reinstalling it i got 30 and then with budjet ajudgment i got that improved to 55m and then for keeping the back balance good i got another 15m. I had visioned a very massive clearout and thats what i done getting rid of the likes of Eto'o, Ronaldinho, Deco, Gudjohnsen, Marquez, Edmilson, Sylvinho and Oleguer.
I sold Eto to Manchester United for 20m. Ronaldinho to Inter for 25m. I sold Deco to Arsenal for 14m. I sold Gudjohnsen for 4 and Marquez for 7.5. The others aren't really worth talking about but this gave me some amount of money too spend and a lot of wages also. So i decided to go on a spending spree. Bringing in:
Dani Alves for 23m, Kameni for 8.25, Sergio Aguero for 35m, Quaresma for 10m, Miguel Veloso for 13.25 that was including monthly installments which took it too 13.25, defour for 3.5m, Henri Saivet on a free, Arshavin for 7.5 and my best signing yet which i thought was a great, great bargain. Adebayor for 13m.
I don't like him much IRL but they have overrated him so much in FM and hes a real great in it so i felt that was a bargain. In Jaunary i sold Xavi for 15m. He was doing very well for me but he wanted to discuss with AC Milan and they offered what i said so i thought i would accept it and i brought in Keita from Sevilla.
I know use will all probably think i am mad for selling the likes of Eto and that but i wanted it to feel realistic and so far my moves have certainly worked. I will update you as i get too the end of the season
