You seem to be playing the transfer market like a violin. Doesn't your squad ever get insecure?

I do feel like I buy to many players, but I won't be buying anymore players from now...going to see to sell players
Great shopping, I would've hung on to torres, but chiellini is a bargain at 15m

February was a very good month with only having two losses in the entire month against Aston Villa, this should of been a win in my eyes, but we obviously didn't get the result we had to, by the end of the month I'm still top of the Premier League three points ahead of fierce rivals Manchester United, my best win in the month was against strong side Chelsea I was very please with his win as I need to win against top sides in the league to have a chance of retaining the title, hopefully after a amazing month I can carry on with wins until the end of the season and hopefully lift that FOURTH Premier League title and try to lift my FIRST ever UEFA Champions League trophy since taking over City.

Top goalscorer for the month was England midfielder Jack Wilshere with notching up a tally of 5 goals in February, he has by far been my best player for the month, hopefully he can perform like this come end of the season and I will have the big teams coming to snap him up!!
My team have performed extremely well together this month, with the look of the team my main players have played, but I will definetly give my other players a chance in the next few month with alot of run-ins with still being in the UEFA Champions League and FA Cup so it is possible of doing the Triple this season

Next Update March
Looks like it will be tight up until the end of the season, Hope you do well
Hehe, tight in the top three I see. It will be the matches agains the two other top teams that will decide your season outcome. That I am pretty sure of
Good luck man! (Although I won't be too sad to see Utd win it! Haha!)

On another note, hope Burnley survive relegation (again!)
This has been the closest season yet since I took over as Manchester City, but hopefully i can retain my Premier League Title and make this my FOURTH consecutive title.

I will do everything I can to win every match until the end of the season to help me retain, plus I want to finally win the Champions League Trophy as this is the only trophy that isnt sitting in my cabinet yet.

If I was managing MU in your game I could beat Barcelona with 10 men, I've done it before in 2012-13 for both legs.

March was another good month with FOUR wins, this is giving me a boost in the Premier League,FA Cup and UEFA Champions League. Within the month I scored 9 goals and only conceded 2 goals in the month, I will be looking forward to last 2 months of the 2014/15 season.
Craig, this isn't readable, sorry

this many text? Undoable :(
Hey dude..nice update. But ive noticed that you seem to leak a goal or two every match. Whats going on?!? You need to try grind out those clean sheets! Thats my belief anyways!
