i already played 2 seasons with Shrewsbury:
The first season i got promoted from the npower league 2 after finishing second.
The second season i finished eleventh after the worst start i could ever think of.

so that where the two seasons VERY short ;p.
Here's my current squad.
i still have a very big problem at left-back. when dan martin is gone i have no one really good to put there.
the best player in my quad: JAMIL ADAM i signed him on a free transfer being worth 400k now he's worth 2.2 mill (think i made a foul in another topic) look at his stats and be amazed.
i'll update saturday :)
Awesome! Now i know that jamil adam is awesome (CONFIRMED!)
Waiting for this update, I hope you get promoted again :)
the league is very exciting at the moment. I'm in 2nd place but i can easily go 1st but also drop to third . take a look. i think it's gonna be very exciting the last 10 games to go .
I'm trying to get a good goal ratio but huddersfield keep beating me at that. as i expected Jamil Adam is playing very good.. getting topscorer, best average (7.61) and 9 times man of the match. my squad is playing very well.. except jamie smith trying to sell him but no one wants him :p. i have a couple of players in my squad that are almost good enough for the premier division, dan morrice , benik afobe (gonna try to sign him at the end of the season.. the attack in my team is perfect benik afobe and jamil adam up front and will keane on the bench.another great player is jermaine grandison still very young but playing very good also :) the tactic i use most of the time is this one : i love to use the wings.. it was a bit hard with these wingers but it worked out fine anyway. ill update my final position tonight
PrOmotionAfter a very hard fight for the title i got promoted.. i didn't win the title (to bad) .. but if you see HOW i lost the title...
My last game against crawley was really weird.. i got 0-1 behind they got a red card i made it 2-1 , they got ANOTHER red card, i won with 1-3 with a hatrick bij jamil adam
i was dissapointed earlier after losing 1-4 against wycome that was really frustrating.
I actually expected coventry to win the title this year cuz they had REALLy good players.hudders field won the title by 9 goals :(.
But i got promoted anyway so.. i think i played good at home but i really sucked away.. goin to need to fix that to next season.
As i expected Adam got top scorer and best average AND most times man of the match.
He's now worth 3.1M i think it's weird nobody tries to buy him ..
I'm going to search another Leftback, Central defender and a right winger.(suggestions?)

next update will be after transferwindow. hope you're enjoying my story so far ...
What's your transfer budget for the season??
Great job although the championship is going to be much more difficult than league 1.
Good luck in the Championship!
It's a tough league.


I got 518k transferbudget and 3k remaining wage budget ( mid table finish)
I adjusted it to 200k transferbudget and 10k remaining wage budget
Having NO decent central dafender i had to look for at least two ...
Boris Nkoa 40k --> Angers SCO (DM)
James O'Connor 80k --> brighton (DR)
Jermaine Grandison 100k --> brighton (DC)
Dean Bouzanis 22k --> ponferradina (GK)
Ryan Taylor (free)(DR)
Matt Mcgregor (free) (MC) (15 years old)
Poundjé (G.bordeaux) (DL)
adam Bogdan (spurs) (GK)
Pele Van Anholt (50k) (de graafschaap) (AML)
Javi Lopez (75k) (alcorcoron) (AMR)
Yohan BOcognano (18k + 300k over 48 months) (DC)
Klaus Hansen (free) (DC)

Shrewsbury 2-3 Watford.. didn't have a central defender in this game (injured)

Jamil Adam blowing up every teams defance... what do you guys think promotion possible?
Yep just keep morale up.
I think you will get playoffs+ this season, Most likely Automatic promotion, big doubt you will win though.
