    Absolutely loved the challenge (my first ever).

    Season 1: Finished 7th (Qualified for Euro!!). Got additional funds from the board mid season. Played 4-2-3-1 Deep mostly.
    Unable to share the team pics, but the key players were:
    Season's Best Player: Peter Crouch (12 goals, 14 assists), got him for 800k!!
    Best loan deal: Eduardo Salvio (6 goals, 7 assists)
    Other Key Players:
    Rever: Got him for 3M Euro, My Defence Cornerstone!

    Season 2: Ongoing (6th after 29 matches). Almost got sacked at one stage
    Got very less transfer budget due to Euro Cup FFP restrictions, but got decent loan deals again.
    Best player (till now): Florian Thauvin (on loan) (14 goals, 14 assists)
    Switched between 4-2-3-1 Deep & 4-4-2 Diamond throughout the season

    Got Ola Toivonen for 3M Euro, and felt he would my best of this game, given his stats, but he turned out to be a big disappointment till now.
    Also have many old players in my team which was fine for the 1st season, but is now making life a bit difficult.

    Will keep updating moving forward. Looking for more such awesome challenges.

    Well, I just finished my first season, 8th in the Premier League after a very strong finish. I started off with a win against Liverpool, but struggled througout the first half of the season, ending up 12th half way throught the season.

    A slight change in tactics and two additional purchases in January changed my fortunes, and I ended with 6 wins in the last 7 matches.

    Best purchase: Nabil Ghilas (striker from FCP), ended up third on the top scorers list.
    #2: Tomás Martinez (AMC from River), one of the best players in the game (is a top star in my long term save game).
    #3: André Martins (MC from Sporting POR), brilliant midfielder for just a little bit of money.

    Wish I could post some screenshots here, made them all but don't see a way to post any... So this will have to do :)
