My first save wont load, so i started again. This time Thurtle wouldnt join Adelaide United, even for triple his value, which was disappointing. Slory was traded behind my back by the Board, and so was Captain McKain. Brought in around $4million, but i couldnt find anyone as good that wanted to move to Australia. This meant diving into the Youth team and fishing out some potential future stars.
I started the season fairly well, being mid-table at the halfway point. Then things took a turn for the worst, and began a 7 game streak without a win (an Adelaide United record). With Fabian Barbiero out for the season with a broken leg, then Bruce Djite out for 6 weeks with a hamstring, i was very low on firepower up front. Sergio van Dyke hadnt scored in weeks, and midfield Milan Susak was the one trying to pick up the slack.
Bruce Djite made his return, only to be red carded for a "violent incident" and suspended for 3 matches, which ended his season.
With the team performing so terribly, the only positive feedback i got from the Board was that my spending on wages was very low, which pleased them. Also, they informed me with three rounds to go that one more loss could seal my fate and i would lose my job.
Thankfully we drew the next two, and then in the last round smashed Melbourne Heart 6-0, ending the season on a positive.
We finished 7th of 10 teams, winning about a third of our games. Now starts the offseason, where hopefully i can snare a marquee player or two.
