Give me defenders who i can buy...and a world class keeper to knock Joe Hart off his number 1 spot
Well as for the Joe Hart situation, start playing Stegen more often, and it'll create competition for that first team spot. Most games you start with Hart, so there is a possibility he is feeling complacent. If you did want to buy another keeper then you can buy Igor Akinfeev, or if you really wanted to splash out, then you could try sign Neuer or Lloris.

As for defenders, i would suggest Hummels and Thiago Silva, who could become your equivalent of Ferdinand and Vidic. Corchia and Digne are good, but not world class (yet). I would suggest Vrsaljko for RB, or Romario. And for LB, if he isnt too old, try Lahm or play Coentrao as a permanent LB. Just train his defensive stats to be better.

Hope that helps mate

Result and Man Of The Match

Manchester City 4 Burnley 1

Man Of The Match - Sergio Aguero

A very good win against Burnley, but yet again we concede a goal against a small club, I think I need to invest in a new goalkeeper who will give Joe Hart some competition. With this win I stay top of the league by 2pts.


Next up Olympique Marseille in the UEFA Champions League Quarter-Final

so should i get rid of Walker,Richards,Rafinha??? because i have to many right backs
LLoris will cost me the excess of £40million..

Well Richards is under-rated in the game so i would sell. Rafinha...not sure, never played with him. Depends if you think he is putting in good performances in for you. The reason i like Vrsaljko, is because he is consistently good, and gets forwards really well

Try Akinfeev. He shouldnt cost you a bomb. Or just play Stegen way more regularly. Set yourself a rule, that if you are at home, against any team who is 10th or below, you should play Stegen. He is a great prospect, but not if you dont play him. Let Hart stick it out on the bench for a while.
for a left back i suggest u try and sign Gareth Bale as u probably know he is a beast if u play him with ATTACK duty . and tell him to run with ball..

good story so far aswell . really exciting to read
Cheers Toon :) great to have positive feedback, I was looking at Gareth Bale I can alternate him and Coentrao at the attacking left back spot, or if I have alot of trouble in Midfield they can both be used as Attacking Left Midfield.

I've got world class striker Karim Benzema coming in the end of the season on a free transfer
Also Craig, Micah can play at CB as well so I would keep him and hes probably getting on so I'd limit the game time of Jagielka perhaps? It is up to you and well done on getting Benzema on a free transfer lol thats very surprising indeed :)
I would of brought him for £7.5million then I saw his contract was ending at the end of the season and got him, beating AC and Inter Milan,Juventus and Chelsea for his signature.

I need to use Phil Jagielka because Vincent Kompany is out for 4 months so I will have to use Richards and Jagielka until he is back, but I'm looking for recruitments like Hummels,Varane etc.

Just had interest from Liverpool for Samir Nasri they offered £20million but £16million over 48months, I rejected this and see if i can get half upfront and then the rest over 48months


Will do a squad evaluation come end of the season and see who I can sell because its too large, plus I can always use some of my young players in the Premier League and see how they play, will bring my young Italian star Iacopo Cambi more often as he is a huge talent.

Nah I won't be selling Walker, he is a very good RB and is very consistent when he is playing.

Joe Hart - Manchester City



This is not a good result, but Marseille are becoming a very strong team in this tournament, with a 1-0 deficit going into the 2nd leg I will be looking to improve on this loss and look for a very strong win in the next leg. After being totally outplayed in this game, I'm shocked that Joe Hart got Man Of The Match Award after this performance



Up next Bolton Wanderers.......

Sebastien Corchia - Manchester City



An okay result against Bolton I feel we should of atleast won this game by atleast 3 or 4 goals and easily dominated this game, but a win is a win and this still keeps me top of the Premier League with 7 hgames left of the season, with a very difficult next 3 games against 2nd/3rd and 4th place one game after another. A very good Man Of The Match performance from Right-Back Seb Corchia



Next match the Second Leg against Olympique Marseille in the UEFA Champions League
