Re: *Official Football Manager Discussion Thread*
Playing as Zaragoza. Pretty poor income from tickets, sponsorships and whatnot, average team. Came across as a challenge. Done 2 seasons so far.
First of all, very hard to get them scoring. Best players have been Lafita and Luis Garcia. The rest have struggled. Helder Postiga does the occasional piece of magic to win games, but hes wildly inconsistent, not a natural finisher and had 2 big layoffs.
The defence has been one of the weaker ones I've ever worked with. Had to quickly offload them, then bring in 4 players on 24 month loans while I rebuild the attack. The midfield will be rampaged by Barcelona & Real Madrid, no surprises there. Had heavy defeats all but 1 time I've faced them. They have done well to soak up Valencia, Atletico Madrid, Sevilla & Athletic Bilbao, however. I've beaten them all at least once in 4 games.
Overall, finished 10th and then 8th. Which has surpassed my initial expectations. King of the midfield eastablished. Just need to close the gap.
