He was offered to me at the back end of the previous season for just over £5m, and I was never saying no to that! He will most likely be my first choice left winger who will swap with Ben Arfa
, my first choice right winger.
wanted to go, so I brought in Montoya
to be my new back up right full back. Simples.
BARGAIN! I have heard good things about this player, in real life he tore up the Prem in the second half of last year, so I hope he can do that this year. I look forward to the long range goals many have promised.
Brought in Ballack
for a bit of experience to be perfectly honest because very few of my players have played in European competition before. This might not make any difference on FM, I'm not sure, but I know it apparently does in real life, so in came the German.
got fed up of being a benchwarmer so has left for pastures new, so I needed another centre half for back up for Coloccini
, so Bassong
came in. For £2m, he isn't too bad.
has made his loan switch from Santos permanent for £4.2m
Steven Naismith to Liverpool, £5.25m
Mike Williamson to Burnley, £2m
Leon Best to Huddersfield, £2m
Steven Taylor to Aston Villa, £7m
Shane Ferguson to Bristol City, £1.3m
Danny Simpson to Stoke City, £2.4m
Steven Harper to Blackppol, 230k
James Perch to Norwich, £2.2m
Tamas Kadar to Belenenses, 500k
Sylvain Marveaux to A. Madrid, 875k loan fee, agreed price of £2.2m
All in all, I think I have done quite well getting what I did for these players. On top of these, many have left on frees and lots of the young players have gone out on loan for first team football. Too many to list. Carlos Fierro
came in in July after agreeing a contract a year ago, but he has no work permit so he has been sent to my Belgian feeder club utilised for work permits. Romario
and Erick Torres
have also been sent there.
