Good start to the season. Defence is already looking more assured

18 games in, only had one loss which came against newcastle. Had an incredible 5-2 win at the Etihad in the run but disappointing 0-0 draw with Boro. The results leave me top of the league but a couple of teams have a game in hand and a chance to over take me.

Annoyingly I have just been placed under embargo due to possible take over from a local businessman. I am hoping it all gets sorted soon with some great players available in January and I am only about a week away now!

Got £19m for Llorente who's leaving on a free transfer at the end of season, nice one Chelsea. :>

Shame there's literally like no-one I can buy with it, there's only Benat and he's went to City. Gonna have to throw Muniain upfront and hope that he does well enough until there's other options. Looks like he could be a decent poacher anyway.

January has been and gone and I made a few changes to the side:

In:

Victor Moses (loan)
Tony Watt
Scott Sinclair (loan)
Nicusor Stanciu

Out:

Miralem Sulejmani - £2.4m
Seb Larsson - £1m
Jorge Casado - £1.7m
Jason Puncheon - loan
Florent Malouda - 190k

Signings were mainly attacking, as Lallana was injured for 3 months so I needed to replace him, Sulejmani, Malouda, Puncheon and Seb Larsson never played and were on ridiculous wages, so it's nice to be rid of them.

Since the update I've played a few games;

Saints 3-2 Fulham - Sinclair, Donk, Watt
Saints 0-5 Spurs
Stoke 3-2 Saints - Stanciu, Schneiderlin
Chelsea 1-1 Saints - Zaha
Saints 1-1 Liverpool - Destro

So some good results, and 2 shit ones. Spurs game was ridiculous, 4-0 down after 18 minutes . All the players I signed have had an impact in terms of goals, apart from Moses, which is pleasing. Sat 11th in the league after 28 games, although I'm 4 points clear of 12th and 4 points off 8th. Can go either way, so hopefully I can get back to some form and push on into a European place again.

Going into 3rd season with Toulouse and really badly need a CB now as Zebina is 34 and leaving on a free as he is declining hugely.

So yes, badly need a CB. Ideally <30 but doesn't have to be. Budget say.. £6m max but ideally less.

Let me have your ideas chaps.

Rest of the team is really solid, can't think of many places to improve except maybe GK (Ahamada). Just got to look for some youth now I guess.

Alvaro Dominiguez? Not sure how much he'll be worth in the future but would be worth a shot.

This embargo is really starting to annoy me now, already seen Corchia sign with Monaco and both Schalke and Chelsea have offered a contract to M'Vila. I did get a message before the window saying that Kenwright would pull the plug on the takeover if it isn't done quickly so I can sign people in January so hopefully it won't take too long

Dominguez is £14m~. Donk is errrrm... Not too great

Might have a bit more to spend, just dumped Real Madrid out of the CL in the quarters... However Barcelona next in the semi.

Donk is boss for my Saints team.

Ended 1st season with a 7.46 average rating, and on a 7.49 this year.

Can I have a screeny for Tony Watt, Stu?

Actually fuming atm. Bid for Benat about 5 different times, Betis weren't having it. Try tapping up, saying Bilbao are in his DNA etc, finally he comes out to the press and says that he wants to come to us. Then he gets injured.

*bleep* this game.

Defender ratings are *bleep*ed on this game. Reading got relegated first season in my save yet their second choice DC still averaged a rating of 7.60.. :L

Suicide Messiah I've been seeing that happen all the time in my game. Whenever I send for a scout report for players who are already wanted by other clubs, they always get injured..

Just gonna continue tapping him up for a laugh anyway, seeing as the Betis manager came out publicly and called me a twat.
