I am not best pleased with this result as we lost to mid-table Baggies, we did have alook of key players out eg Neymar,Hazard,Kompany,Nasri. I will not tolerate games like this as its frustrating as I'm 6 points clear ahead of 2nd place which will be knocked down now.

Not a way to start off your first international career with a loss, I can try and bring success to this awkwardly performing team, I'll be looking to bring new players in to give them a chance and will also give youngsters a chance too.

MID: Yaya Toure,David Silva,Abdi Ibrahim(youth/HG),Eden Hazard,Samir Nasri,Stephen El Shaarawy,Shinji Kagawa,Marko Marin

ST: Sergio Aguero,Neymar,Zlatan Ibrahimovic,Giuseppe Rossi,Emmanuel Adebayor(unregistered)Marouane Chamakh,Bojan(loan),Devante Cole(HG/youth),Iacopo Cambi

Comments please of who you think I should get rid of!
First of all: Sell Adebayor, Chamakh and Digne.

As replacement back: Chiellini or Evra, van der Wiel could also be a nice one, and I dunno how Mario Fernandes, Jetro Willems or Kieftenbelt have grown

Furthermore, You need a decent CD, I dunno how good these are exactly 9some names are unknown to me), but look towards: vertonghen, Sakho, breno and Galeano

You should probably can use another midfield, defensive would Fellaini or Matuidi a solid choice, more offensive you should look at Gylfi Sigurdsson, Javier Pastore, Or perhaps Giorgino Wijnaldum, Ramsey or Gotze

You have good wingers, but if I were you i'd like to check those players: Xherdan Shaqiri, Dusan Tadic, Zakaria labyad and Bale

Your Strikers are some o the best around, only who can better; Leandro Damiliao or perhaps Lukaku as last resort
Digne has been a good defender for me I only brought him in July/August
Adebayors contract ends in July and I cant seem to sell him, only able to if its like £1.5million
Chamakh will be going out onloan as he isnt being used at all, maybe try and send him off to Hibernian

Mario Fernandes, Jetro Willems or Kieftenbelt I will have a look at, breno and Galeano I will also have alook at , your other choice at CB is at Arsenal(vertonghen), Sakho is gonna cost me about £30million

Fellaini or Matuidi who would you say is best between these guys?

Bale is going to cost me in the excess of £25million+

Could try Shaqiri,Wilshere,Labyad

I'm currently happy with my frontline for now

Currently have £20million spend in transfer kitty
Felaini, but I think too epensive.

Dunno which season you are, but maybe you could pick op Sissoko, low price, excellent stats.

Labyad is one 1 always buy, because it's one of my favorite players.

And better sell him for 1,5 Mil, than let him leave, and get free wages :)

Yep after Adebayor being my top goalscorer last season aswell, he didnt want to play for me this season so I just unregistered him and brought another striker in.

Shaqiri and Ramsey are my main targets. or even a Defensive Midfielder like Van Bommel/Sissoko

Manchester City 3-1 Manchester United

A fantastic result against my fierce rivals which puts me 6points clear of the Premier League.
A great double from top scorer Sergio Aguero completed embarrassed Uniteds defence
After Andre-Villas Boas got sacked from Chelsea they were interested in me!!!

But I'm not interested in moving to my "Rivals"
