Re: **Official Football Manager Thread**
In my Leeds game, it's the 30th of December 2009, which I thought was a good time for an update.
In the Prem, record looks like played 20, won 9, drew 4, lost 7 giving us 31 points and 7th spot.
The big time TV money of the Prem saw the board back me (I guaranteed survival) and give me 20mil to spend. I brought in Adam Johnson from Middlesbrough for 2mil (they got relegated after 2008 and ahven't got back into the Prem yet), Niko Krancjar for 5mil (Pompey got relegated last season), Justin Hoyte from Arsenal for 1.8mil and a young Colombian called Christain Nazarith who my scouts went nuts for, so for 4mil I'm hoping he turns into a real prospect, but he's helping out just now as well. I also brought in Danny Guthrie (liverpool) and James Milner (Newcastle) on season long loans.
All was goign well until I suffered some bad injuries, so on deadline day I got Bobby Zamora (800k) and Antti Niemi (400k) to come in. Zamora has been used sparingly, but Niemi has wound up my number on keeper after some great performances. I also got two random guys from Spain on season long loans, Ivan Ramis (mallorca) and Juan Pablo Caffa (Betis). Ramis is a regular at centre back, while Caffa has helped on the left wing.
Sverkos is once again my top goalscorer (signed for 850l, now valued at 7mil) and we'd be screwed without him.
I'm loving playing this game, so I'll prob post another (hopefully not so long) update at the end of the season.
