Crap, this story of the month thing hides the story better than highlights it. I only found your story now

will take a while to catch up, but those signings seem to be great additions (and nice to see that Fiete Arp is doing ok)

Squad Preview

Before the season begins I wanted to take the chance to quickly run through the entire first team squad, with the inclusion of some player profile screenshots of key players and regens. We've had one or two regens come up through the ranks and are knocking on the door for first team football and I don't want you guys to see them being mentioned and have no clue as to who they are.

With that I'll leave it to you guys to take a quick look and make judgement yourselves!

Emi Martinez
Francis Uzoho

Yan Valery
Ezri Konsa
Layvin Kurzawa
Max Aarons
Jamal Lewis
Tyrone Mings
Edmond Tapsoba
Tosin Adarabioyo
Rhys Norrington-Davies

Marcus Edwards
Ilaix Moriba
John McGinn
Dominik Szoboszlai
Jack Grealish
Richie Doyle
Enis Bardhi

Ollie Watkins
Lyss Mousset
Fiete Arp
Jordan Ross

The team as a whole looks superb but I wanted to show you some of the stand out players such as Dominik and Ilaix now that they've had a few years under my guidance to develop and improve. It's obvious that both these two are our best players and Ilaix certainly one of the best playmakers in the Premier League right now.

The two most notable players though are Doyle and Ross. Ross came from Rangers as you all know and will play understudy to Wesley who still remains in great form unlike his usual striker partner Ollie Watkins who I've had to cast out to the bench due to his recently poor performances in front of goal.

I'm most excited about our own youth product Richie Doyle. Not the best on the technical side of things but he's got room to improve. His mental and physicals are already on par or even better than some of our starters here at Villa so I'll 100% be aiming to play the young lad in the Europa League group stages to aid his development and give him a chance to perform well and try to break through into the actual first team.

He's lots of work ahead of him before he makes it but I have a good feeling about this one.

We've quite a few youth products nearing on the same level but with plenty of players in the first team already they remain in the u18s for now and eventually I hope to bleed them all in. As soon as I do, you will all know!
You have some very talented players in your ranks and it's great to see how some of those players have grown in your save. The squad only looks like improving as most of these players are yet to hit their prime!
Start of 2nd season

I manged to get Onguene and Szoboszlai in for a great price combined, 25 mil punds up front and 35 over 36/m and 50 Games.

Lisandro Martinez was listed for 4,5 mil punds, a bargin!

Tsmikas was also listed 7 mil punds, snap him and a young Cacace in.

Brenner is a backup and a prospekt for the 1st team, 11 mil punds. Dele Alli was on the loan list, only 30% loan fee of the wage.

on Deadline day Gunn was signed, listed for 2 mil punds.

Do to the bad 16th placed laster season, i startede to cleen out alot.

Targett, Hause and heaton was out the door first. combind for 25 mil punds, after that i got 5 mil punds for Lamare Bogarde. Thx Crystal Palace!

Samatta, Taylor, Wright, Nakamba, Louie Barry, Wesley also left. 22 mil more in.

Lost the Community game to Liverpool on Pen shootout ;(

After the game, we only lost 2 Prl games until Januar, we are 2! that will not last!

Frnkfurt, Molde and Sporting was the EL group, we got a 2 place and looking forward to the spring games.

We hit a 10 game winnig streak, with big wins over Chelsea, Liverpool, United and Spurs.

Watkins started slow, but are now on 14 goals, joined leader with Salah and the young lad from spurs Parrot.

do to the succes, Szoboszlai wented made and destroyed my office and demand a fee set for leaving to bigger clubs.... 2 goals and 8 ass in 16 games was a tricker for Real Madrid and PSG. No Bid yet.... 62 mil punds did we settle for....

hope you get some time and will go on with your game.

PS. I put in some more rules for my game, Always has a player from wales, irland or scotland and 1 exotic player ( like Park, Valencia, Fabio or Forlan) not from EU.
Some great additions to the squad in particular Arp on a bargain price imo. Doyle looks a right talent and with some game time he could really be a massive player for the club in the future. Good stuff mate.
What Happened with the save
2021-09-05 12:39#284516 Daniel : What Happened with the save

From what I heard Aaron forced his best player out of the club, signed the best player from a North London club then left the squad in a very average state for the next manager.

So challenge complete I'd say.
