Transfers and tribulations.
Whilst trying to burn off the Christmas indulgence on the treadmill, I look around and find that 30 million doesn't buy a lot in 2021
I decide I'm OK defence wise, I have Chris Wood & Ashley Barnes up front and Victor Fischer can fill in if needed
I think I'm going to indulge in an English player, with potential, who looked at home in the premier league, is young and will only aid the philosophy I'm going for..
welcome aboard Todd Cantwell
Everyone seems pleased - I know he may not change my fortunes instantly, but he's as good as anything I've got, is only 22 and I think will be a good investment - only time will tell.
Onto the games - First up I go toe to toe with Wolves, but as seems to be the theme of the season, get pipped in the 87th minute
Again though - I have no one to bring on to help a tiring team get through with a win or draw at least Look at that bench - I mean poor Kevin Long doesn't even get a squad number !
I get back on the horse in the FACUP with a win against Fleetwood
I then pick up an outstanding 1-0 Vs Spurs.... This get Jose' the sack however, so I invite him to get on the red wine....
A thick head and two days later I take on Leeds who are 7th I hold out little hope for my flagging players, who I couldn't even rotate Vs Fleetwood
IM FINALLY ON THE RIGHT END OF A LATE GOAL !!!
The always brilliant Chris Wood gets me the point I think I deserve.
After that I have Chelsea in the cup - I sacrifice my team and play all the returning injured troops and send the rest of the lads to a team bonding day at a recovery spot off the M66
I try a few more Transfers
Matic Accepted but said no
Promes Accepted but said no
Alonso (Marcus) Accepted but said no
All due to my league position of 15th
However, I do snare
I see him as the long term fix after Gylfi's loan expires - no way Everton will let him back here - he's flying
I keep my rotated (ISH) team out V Man U promptly get beat 2-0 but see no issue
My issue comes when I get beat by 16th place Newcastle and end up replacing them at 16th
The board summon me - I sight the injuries as collateral and they take it. however, I need to get some more wins.....
