This season i've started out really poorly, but i did qualify fot the champions league and i'm in a group with madrid, spurs, and kobenhavn. Need to improve my league position and hopefully sign M'Vila in the joker window.
So far this year;
Ins: Griezmann (7 mil), Boudebouz (10 mil), Miranda (300k)
Outs: Lacombe, Bouchite, Valette, Djabou, Santisteva, Pitau, Jeunechamp, Legras (free), Mezague (300k), Coulomb (325k), Koita (1.5 mil), Utaka (1.6 mil), Dabo (loan)
to follow up on this, 2nd season at Montpellier went pretty great, squad is pretty decent now. Won the League, French Cup and Champions League so i'm pretty stoked about that.
Was pushed all the way by Lyon and Marseille, i didn't wrap it up until the final day despite ending the season with 28 wins, 8 draws and only 2 losses. Lyon had 28 wins, 7 draws and 3 losses and Marseille dropped off right towards the end of the year and finished with 26 wins, 7 draws, 5 losses.
French Cup was pretty easy, don't think i played a good team all competition. The only 'good' side was Bordeaux and they had a shit season and got relegated.
Champions League i got drawn with Madrid, Tottenham and Kobenhavn. Finished undefeated and top of the group with 12 points, Madrid on 9, Spurs on 8. Got CSKA Moscow in the first KO round, won 6-4 on aggregate, beat Sporting 3-1 on aggregate in the quarters, beat Marseille 6-2 on aggregate in the semis and beat Madrid (again) 3-1 in the final. Was 1-0 up early and then Albiol got sent off after 6 mins so i cruised all the way.
from the Jan window, * means a regen.
Ins: Emlek* (free), Ohyanagi* (800k), Paulo* (6.75 mil), van Hoevan* (3.3 mil), Sommer (6.25 mil)
Outs: Camara (1.7 mil), Estrada (8 mil), Bocaly (4.9 mil)
Now onto this season, lost whatever the french equivalent of the community shield 3-2 to Lyon but i've won both my league games thus far.
Ins: M'Vila (30 mil), Parodi*(2.2 mil), Fierro (17 mil), Mphuthi* (3.1 mil)
Outs: Ohyanagi (180k loan), Sanogo (550k loan), Jourdren (4.7 mil), Saihi (1.8 mil)
I really wanted M'Vila cheaper but Rennais recovered and didn't get relegated last season and i couldn't sign him before then as he didn't want to come.
Griezmann may just be my favourite buy ever on FM12. Picked him up for 7 mil as his side got relegated and he was on form practically the entire year except the last month or so seeing as i played him in so many games but he ended up with 51 appearances, 22 goals, 36 assists with an average rating of 7.72. For 7 mil thats a steal. He won the champions league best player, in 12 gmes he got 7 goals and 11 assists for a rating of 7.97.
