Season so far...
Currently 4th in the league behind Arsenal, Chelski and ManU, about 5points between us all. Aston Villa had a storming start, were 2nd for ages but finally settling into 5th. Torres is out for 4months until April and with my two other main strikers on loan I brought in Rossi and Nilmar, with the aim to try and snag them both before the end of the loan. Im slowly purchasing more determined player with high work rates and teamworks to get rid of and complacency and turn Liverpool into a solid team throughout, not just some average players surrounding Torres and Gerrard. Torres has had a poor season goal wise, 7 in all competitions and now out until very late into the season, Gerrard on the other hand has been on fire, currently on 21 league goals and far ahead on the top scorers charts.
season 2010/11

Vicente, Reid (LM)

an old team, but fantastic against anyone not in the Champions League. got most off the transfer list or free transfers. Riquelme scores tons of stunners, and RVN consistently puts them away. The new north east Entertainers!

Miller, McGuire, Paton, Mackie (st)

Currently 2nd in league, 3 points behind rangers, 5 points ahead of Celtic after 17 games. Lee Miller is banging in goals left right and centre with 15 so far. On course to splitting the old firm so extremely happy.

Transfers in: Pierrier Doumbe- free
Hemdani- free
C. Lopez- free (arriving in january)

transfers out: Wright (80k)
A few young players loaned out aswell
in fm 09 Mulgrew was best played as a LM or CM, he could do much more from those positions. just a tip if he isnt performing that well as LM then put him back to LB. but try him as LM a few matches maybe, i think he will do great in that position.
Thing is Aluko has made LM his own as he plays phenomenal there, and foster just isint quite good enough to consistently play at LB, If Aluko gets injured I might give Mulgrew a shot there, cheers for the advice

my god thats a lot of foreign players.
Lol, 2 English players.
I know, I'm always having trouble fielding good home grown players... I guess I found it easier to sign quality foreign players cause they're looking forward to playing in EPL, even if for a shitty team.
