Re: **Official Football Manager Thread**
A quick update on my Leeds game:
It's now January 20th, 2009. Leeds are top of the Championship, on 68 points with 21 wins, 5 draws and 2 losses. Wigan are 2nd with 66 points.
Vaclav Sverkos has scored 21 goals in the league, 2nd in the charts only to Marek Saganowski of Southampton who has 25.
Have made no signings in January as I'm constantly getting knocked back. Tried to sign Shola Ameobi, Wayne Routledge, Daniel Gabbidon, Anothny Stokes, all of whom were transfered listed and available for peanuts (I have 850k to spend and could've got all four for that) but they refuse to discuss terms with me, even thought their teams accept the offers I make.
Hopefully my young, cheap squad can hold out as at this rate it looks like we'll be making no signings at all. My only consolation is that Wigan have also signed no-one (excpet some random Welsh fullback from Wrexham called Ryan Vallentine, who has only made 8 appearances for them so far, and 4 of them were off the bench), while selling Agahowa to PSV and Dave Cotterill to Watford (they got promoted to the Prem last season).
The only other good thing going for me is that while I'm on 68 and Wigan are on 66, 3rd place Southampton are back on 58, so automatic promotion is looking good right now.
