Starting it up!
The squad looks very good, Real Madrid spent a lot in the summer on the likes of Bale and Isco. The only position that could be perhaps weak is the right back. However, it all depends if I play Ramos there. And this depends if Varane and Pepe if are a good pairing. Never the less, there is a lack of high quality alternatives. Apart from that, the squad is very good.
I am using the very popular 4-2-3-1. When I play Barca or the best European teams I will be playing 4-3-2-1 (the AMC will drop to CM). And I might use this when away, I may also have to use this formation when Isco is available, because the AMC is Engache. I have used Ronaldo here in the pre-season and was impressive however, that's Ronaldo.
With a £20M budget, I looked in the transfer market but no one was appealing for under £20M. The only out going was Arbeloa to P$G for £5M. I may look in January once I know more about the squad or even sell again.
(All away games)
Winterthure 1-4 W
Aarau 0-3 W
Grasshoppers 1-3 W
Locarno 0-2 W
Lausanne 1-5 W
I dominated all games, should of scored more. Slight concern with a few goals going in, hopefully just pre-season laziness.
Best players of pre-season:
Morata - In two games he picked up two MOTM awards and scored four goals.
Ronaldo - Six goals in four games and two assists.
Alonso - In three games he assisted three times.
Here we go!
In the season I am looking forward to see Morata improving, Ronaldo being better than Messi and to see if Bale is worth £85M. I hope to win the League and get to the Semi Final of the Champions League. I will possibly play the weaker/younger players in the Cup.
