I'm in so much debt with Everton it's funny. I signed Yann M'Vila for £5million up front and £20million over 48months and similar for Artem Milevskyi.
Thankfully I'm in 2nd place in the league after 36 games, got a CL spot which will ease the debt. Signed Hernandes from United on loan in January, 13 goals and 2 assists in 16 games. GOAT. Will be offloading a bunch of players to sign him up fulltime.
Got rid of Steve Round as assistant manager and brought in Johan Crujiff.
Sold Kevin Mirallas to Reading for £7.5mil. Released a few elder gents like Neville and Distin.
Brought in Eden Dzeko on loan paying 50% of wages, Toby Alderweireld, Thomas Ince, Nathan Redmond and Carl Jenkinson.
Oh and Paul Pogba on loan.
Trying to build a young side.
"Every man's heart one day beats its final beat, his lungs breath their final breath. And if what that man did in his life, makes the blood pulse through the body of others, and makes them believe deeper in something larger than life, then his essence, his spirit, will be immortalised by the storytellers, by the loyalty, by the memory, of those who honour him and make whatever the man did live forever."
Sitting in 6th with Swansea in my first season, 30 games in. I've really struggled on FM this year but I think I've finally got into a save without getting sacked/relegated. The game being too scripted puts me off sometimes. Opposition never seem to not score when you expect them to.
Fucking defending on this game is awful. I keep shipping goals away from home especially. Beat Juve 2-1 at the Emirates and should've been more, then the same team goes & loses 5-1 at Norwich. Norwich then went & beat Newcastle 7-0 at St James. Steve Morison got 7 in those 2 games.
i continually change the defensive line. if i'm facing a team with fast wingers, i tend to push them back more and hit them on the break. if they play narrow, with slow striker(s)/slow build up i'll push my defence up and pressure them once they get the ball as they're unlikely to get around with pace or anything. so much tinkering is needed, longest you can probably go is like 5 games before small touchups. teams tend to work you out much quicker this year.
