#36551 Godman : #36538 Scottio86 :
Blackburn must have some amount of cash looking at those transfers! £20 million for Samba is some deal!

Did you have to haggle for Gotze? I doubt £56 million was your starting bid but to be sure of getting him you probably went that bit further.

Can't see anyone in the EPL stopping you this season with Hazzard, Gotze, Young, Rooney and a free scoring Hernandez. Hopefully this season you can add the CL to your list. Just need a slightly better draw for the Q/F than last season.


I first contacted Borussia Dortmund in March and they wanted 120 million so I decided not to act anymore till the summer. I then contacted Borussia Dortmund again and they wanted 70 million and after some negotiating I got him for 56 million.
How did you get the price down and did u enquire or offer money and they negoigated
How about feeder clubs ect have you got anything like that going on?

Good win against Fulham away from home, even if your team ships 3 goals they are still winning which must be a great feeling! Is this the only country you have got going at the moment in the game? Your name must be appearing for all sorts of big clubs.

I enquired In March and then again in he summer. I then originally offered 40 million and as I said they wanted 70 million in the summer. So just kept increasing the bids till they accepted (I was not going to spend over 60 million so I was happy that the offer was accepted.

I have managed to get Celtic as a feeder club, Dynamo Kyiv as a feeder club and 1st option on young players and Houston Dynamo as a commercial feeder club.
Champions League Group Game – FC Zürich H

Won the game 7-0. With Young getting one and Hernández 6 (two were from the spot). However Götze got injured.
Injury News - Mario Götze out for 5 weeks.

Pretty astute there!

Celtic are a big club and to have them as a feeder team is great, hopefully your young guys can learn from playing at a big stadium with high expectations before playing for your 1st team.

Must be gutted about Gotze, I'm stunned at Hernandez and his goals! He must be in with a shout of top goalscorer already.

That was my thinking with the feeder clubs. I have all ready sent Federico Macheda up to scotland and in the future a couple more will follow.

Yeah Götze was playing well but their is a break due to international football so he wont miss that many games.

Hernández form is unbelievable and at the moment he is keeping Rooney out of the team as I am playing with a 4-3-3-1 formation. However with Götze injury I may use Rooney as a AMC or as a AML (inside forward) and switch Hazard to AMC.
League Game – West Brom H

4-2-3-1
Line Up - David de Gea, Chris Smalling, Phil Jones, Nemanja Vidić, Patrice Evra, Michael Carrick, Darren Fletcher, Ashley Young, Eden Hazard, Wayne Rooney, Javier Hernández
Subs Used - Danny Welbeck, Michael Owen, Antonio Valencia

Went ahead as Hernández latched onto a mistake by Paul Scharner. Peter Odemwingie then equalized. Hazard and Carrick then scored to give me a 3-1 lead. Hernández got his second with a fierce drive and then Jones scored from a corner. Finally Rooney scored to give me a 6-1 victory.
Your goal difference must be some tally!
League Cup – Portsmouth H

4-2-3-1
Line Up - Anders Lindegaard, Rafael, Chris Smalling, Jonny Evans, Fábio, Paul Pogba, Mats Møller Dæhli, Gerard Deulofeo, Mateo Kovacic, Alvaro Vadillo, Danny Welbeck.
Subs Used – Robbie Brady, Tom Cleverley, Adnan Januzaj

Won the game 1-0 with a long-range drive from Pogba. Also a number of players made their United debut. These included Dæhli, Deulofeo, Kovacic, Vadillo and Januzaj
League Game – Everton A

4-2-3-1
Line Up - David de Gea, Rafael, Phil Jones, Nemanja Vidić, Fábio, Michael Carrick, Ryan Giggs, Ashley Young, Wayne Rooney, Eden Hazard, Javier Hernández
Subs Used – Danny Welbeck, Tom Cleverley, Robbie Brady

Struggled in a 1-1 draw. Hazard game United the lead but Everton got the equalizer as Diniyar Bilyaletdinov scored due to a Jones mistake.
You must have a pretty good lead in the table despite the draw though?

I was hoping to see Pogba last night as he is regarded as a great talent!
#36648 Scottio86 : You must have a pretty good lead in the table despite the draw though?

Yeah doing well.

I was also hoping to see Pogba and Morrison start. Shame about the result.
Have you lost a domestic game this season?

Last year you didn't lose many points at all and you look stronger this year so should be a good year for you.

Yeah was pretty poor performance last night but maybe the reality check some of the players needed!
