    Started a save with Valencia to test the headers in this game. Looking okay- Maxi Gomez doesn't miss sitters like in the last game, but the transfers will be challenging to think up.

    Updated and downloaded the name fix patch.
    Never sure on changing the badges and kits or the face packs. Tempting as they are.

    Second season going well, won my CL group and got Hertha Berlin in last 16. Comfortable in the league and beat Rangers in the League Cup final. Got Dundee Utd in Scottish Cup quarters.

    January window was quiet, just one in and one out:

    In:

    Teun Koopmeiners - Juventus - £16.5m

    Out:

    Jorman Campuzano - Wolves - £9m

    Campuzano was a decent enough player but felt we could improve on him and certainly done that. I actually agreed a £10m fee with AZ for Koopmeiners in the Summer but he chose to go to Juve - luckily for me he didn’t get much game time there so was able to pick him up

    Ryan Gauld is superb in this. Signed him for £3.7 million. Has 6 assists in 6 games and has 4 motms.

    It always get facepacks.

    I hate signing some faceless guy. I’ve not done it yet as it is a hassle with such big files.

    Aye the file sizes and the need for multiple downloads etc always turns me off.

    If there is a one file for all kits, (and/or) face packs and badges, id be more inclined to dive in.

    Signed - Luis Abram a center back from Velez for 1 million upfront and installments of 500k and he has been immense.
    Also signed a winger from Newells's called Gonzalez and he is not bad got him for 1.7 million structured deal and he has massive potential and ability to be good back up for the right and left wing.
    Finally signed Ugarte from Fenix for 2 million structured deal and he has been immense. Brown got injured for 5 months at the start of the season so he as been filling in at defensive mid and has been immense.
    So far tp of the league after 14 games and not lost yet. Pumped the Huns 3-0 and drew 0-0 away to Barca in my first champions league group game so its going well so far.

    Second season finished, another good one:

    Comfortable again in the league although didn’t pick up as many points. Two cup final victories over Rangers again which is always nice.

    In the CL we got past Hertha Berlin 2-1 on agg, before drawing 3-3 on agg with PSG in the quarters, but going through on away goals.

    In the Semi’s we were drawn against Man Utd. We were in great form going into it but disaster struck with both Eddy and Daka picking up injuries and leaving us without a recognised striker. Livakovic was also injured so Bain had to play. Needless to say we got dumped out 4-1 on agg. Got further than expected though.

    Had some great performers, Eddy and Daka on fire. Daka got injured twice which limited his appearances and probably cost him another 10 goals. Every single outfield player scored a goal which is some effort.

    James Forrest left us in March for £5m to the MLS.

    Don’t have much planned transfer wise ahead of season 3. The spine of the team is very strong, maybe too many options in midfield actually. Will probably look to sell one or two to make sure the young players are getting enough gametime.

    The wide men were a bit inconsistent so may look to bring in some real quality wingers that could make the difference in the CL.

    * almighty!

    Got Celtic to the group stages of the Champions league and even qualified to the knock-out stages.
    Running away with the league and I get sod all transfer funds for January in my first season.
    I request funds as we have 90M+ in the bank and get told to bolt!!


    I have my eye on Thiago Almada as I'm always on the lookout for him in my Celtic saves and can get him in for around 6M.
    Lyon comes in with a bid for Rogic so I manage to get the selling price up to 8M so I'm thinking I can use it to bring in Thiago which will be a major upgrade on Rogic and the board inform me that I'll get 1.6M from the Rogic deal.

    I hate this board even in this save!!

    Sounds like they’ve activated full Lawwell mode in your game!

    Summer of season 3 transfer window done. It probably ended up being busier than expected, mainly due to my own incompetence! I also fielded and rejected what felt like about 200 bids for some of my top players, including one for Patson Daka from Burnley for £49m, it was constant.


    Outs:


    Olivier Ntcham - Watford - £16m

    Ryan Christie - Wolves - £11.75m

    Mikey Johnston - West Brom - £2.5m

    Luca Connell - Burnley - £5m

    Almamy Toure - Newcaste - £14.5m


    Toure gone, all because he had a release clause in his contract that I completely forgot about! Offered him a new contract after the bids came in, he was happy with it, but left anyway. A very reliable and flexible player gone.


    Wasn’t all bad news in the window - we achieved what I wanted to in terms of adding real quality out wide. Paid some big fees, but given the money we brought in from player sales and the CL run, we could afford to do it. Also got a very good replacement for Toure, with a pretty cool name!


    Musa Barrow - Bologna - £21m

    David Neres - Ajax - £20m

    Mert Mulder - Sassuolo - £17.75m


    In the CL we’ve been drawn with Spurs, Leipzig and Brugges.
