Season Five - 2017/2018
In our debut Premier League season, it was important that we invested in a squad which could help us survive and we spent over £43M doing so. However, £35M of the total was spent on a 17 year old Kim Morgan from Bournemouth, who looked to be the best up-and-coming player of his generation. Unfortunately as I am quite a long way ahead of this story, I only have a screenshot of Kim Morgan and that is from before he signed for us. Overall, I was fairly pleased with the signings I made. I brought in a lot of experienced players to hopefully help our cause. Let's see how we did!

It certainly was not pretty as we lost games left, right and centre. If there was ever a bright spell for us, it was in January where we picked up eight points, which made a massive difference to our season as you will see in the league table.
I genuinely don't know how we survived but we did! 31 points is the lowest a Premier League team has gathered over the course of the season yet surviving the drop. We were put to the sword so many times and we were incredibly lucky not to be relegated back to the Championship.
Despite some late drama in a thriller away to Birmingham, penalties saw our early demise in 'The Cup Of Dreams'. In a season where we struggled to find our feet, it was no surprise to see us exit the cup early.
Capital One Cup
Nobody expected a Premier League club to be defeated by Crewe but we were hammered in extra time and we can only blame ourselves for the defeat. It was disappointing, to say the least.
Another season gone, another year of memorable football in the history books. We survived this season but how would we do in the following season? Stick around to find out!
