Who am I?
I am Liam Moores and I will be taking on the challenge of Cardiff.
I will hope to save Cardiff from relegation and hopefully buy quite a few young players with amazing potential so we can turn into title contenders in a few years time.

Win the FA Cup
Win the Premier League

That was just a little update sorry it was not long or well written, my updates will be a lot better. Also leave in the comments below any suggestions for Staff, Players or anything.
Definitely look at Kusk, Sviatchenko and Rotariu if you need some high-potential youngsters!
Wow Kusk and Sviatchenko look really good and cheap but Rotariu they want 16m for so I will look into it. ;)
How do you feel about trying something new with this story? Making it so the readers have more to do.

Such as me picking positions and giving a budget and you suggesting a player etc?
Good luck!

Transfers In
I did not have a lot of money (It is Cardiff) so I thought I would go for the defensive approach so Caulker won't have to carry my team and because before the season I thought my attackers would do well and I would give them a trial (They were not up to scratch :/). Eric Dier was at the back of my mind and then he got recommended to me by my scout and it said he could be a leading premier division defender so I thought I had to snap him up. William Carvalho I knew of but I looked at him when looking through Eric Dier's team (Sporting) and then I looked at his stats which I was impressed with. There was no stand out stats, I was more impressed with how well rounded he was and how the majority of his skills are at a good stat and are more or less the same as all the rest. My scout said how he could improve and was no way near his full potential so I HAD to snap him up.

Transfers Out
A few loans to give a few players firs team experience. With Matt Moller, I did not want to have him stay at the club I wanted him to go on loan so he can get played and get first team experience as he was not my first or second choice and I DID NOT want to have a player of his talent wasting and wanted him to be playing all the time, for Cardiff to have a player like him I could not ruin him.

As far as selling players went, no one wanted any of the players I wanted to sell, it is that simple.
Good transfers mate!

Some good results like wins over Man Utd and Man City. I was on a dip at the end of the season which I was disappointed with, it was like my team gave up. I still feel like I need to improve my defense (I need more money to buy a better LB, RB and a third choice experienced CB who can tutor Eric Dier, watch this space). I also feel like I need to REALLY improve my attack, I NEED a striker who can score and I need a left winger who can help with that (Any cheap suggestions let me know).
16th, 1 place a head of where I thought we would be so I am happy in a way. We did slip up though I was 11th for the majority of the season so a bit annoyed at the fact we let it slip towards the end of the season.
Is anyone actually reading this? I know it has only been updated twice but it is supposed to be a long term story. If you guys don't comment I can't tell if anyone enjoys it or if there is any point in keeping it going
Rough finale to the season there. Hoping Cardiff find a way to move a little further up the table next season. Push for a top 10!
