Started a career with Chelsea and Im just going to tell youse what has happened so far. If there is anything that I should do differently please share your ideas as I'm willing to listen and take into account any new ideas. So far I've done from June to 24th September 2011/12
Im going to start off with the transfers.

I tend to play a 4-2-1-3 cech, ivanovic, alex, terry, a.cole, meireles, ramires, lampard, mata, drogba, torres/sturridge

Taylor-Bristol Rovers-loan

Christian Eriksen-Ajax-£9.75m
Maniche-free transfer

Abramovich was being very tight with the budget and only gave me £21.68m to spend so only have £11.93m left after purchasing Eriksen. I am planning to keep all the players I have for the season and do my transfers next summer.

Now to tactics I play 4-2-1-3 cech, cole, terry, alex, ivanovic, meireles, ramires, lampard, mata, drogba and torres. so far played 5 won 5 and torres is my top scorer with 4 goals :) and is playing well and got man city next which is my first big test

Pre season results:
Vitesse- won 5-1
Gangwon- won 4-0
Busan- won 2-1
Clapton - won 9-0
Chelsea under 18's - won 5-0

Barclays Premier League:
Wolves- won 2-1 (lampard, torres)
wigan- won 1-0 (torres)
norwich- won 3-0 (torres, luiz, drogba)
sunderland- won 2-0 (drogba, torres)
(torres scored in all 4 of them games)
west brom- won 3-0 (terry 2, drogba)

Carling cup
birmingham- won 2-1 (alex, sturridge)
(have wolves in 4th round)

champions league
villarreal won 2-0 (mata 2)
I just lost to man city 2-1 at the bridge. city were 2-0 up at h/t and quite frankly deserved to be. in the second half we piled the pressure on and jt got us a goal back. unfortunately we couldn't get an equaliser and have dropped to 4th place. So that is now august done and nearly september. have olympiakos for my last game in september.
I suggest you to buy Hulk he is a brilliant Attacking Midfielder Right and a Striker. Ask the board to buy him.
Hulk is valued at £9m but Porto probably would let him for £18m if im lucky but i only have £11m =/
put in a bid of £9m but that was rejected. i'm going to try and buy him in the summer as abramovich hopefully will let me spend big cause he only gave me £21m to spend and i bought in eriksen for £9.75m
try get him in installments , hes amazing (Hulk) will pay of he was my top goalscorer and assister for chelsea ^^ oh and sturridge develops and plays very good in the future
just an update so far:
chelsea 2 (eriksen, ramires) lampard missed penalty swansea 0
bolton 1 chelsea 2 (lampard, lukaku)
chelsea 0 napoli 1
liverpool 1 chelsea 1 (agger own goal)
wolves 0 chelsea 4 (kalou, lampard 2, torres) carling cup 4th round
chelsea 2 arsenal 1 (torosidis og and juan mata)

So the results have been quite mixed but the result against arsenal sent us blues back to top spot. lampards goal against bolton was goal of the month for october whilst i claimed my 2nd manager of the month. so far the squad harmony seems to be happy and the team is playing well. torres is playing well and scoring but not as many as i hoped but has 6 goals in 15 (in all comps not bad but could be better).
I'm really in need of a midfielder but only have £11.93m to spend. malouda, maniche and romeu are all out injured. eriksen is ineligible for my cl squad so i've had to place mceachran and connor clifford on the bench vs napoli. should i loan someone perhaps or just spend the 11.93m? if so can anyone suggest any players who could make an impact?
it wouldn't make a difference to your CL squad would it, as you would have to register the player?
#42328 DEMBA! : it wouldn't make a difference to your CL squad would it, as you would have to register the player?
yeah i know but for the second half of the season when i can make changes to my epl and cl squad :)
will be tough to find a player that is not already cup tied and therefore ineligible for the CL. maybe try to loan a player and save the money for the offseason? you could probably afford someone like Hamsik if you saved it. you could try Steven Defour though, thinking about it, he plays for Porto I believe.

So things are going well for us after 10 games. Good to see Everton doing well also and delighted to see Arsenal struggling in mid-table :P

I am also content with my results though in a few games we should have won by a bigger margain than we did. the only result i am disappointed with is the liverpool game cause they nicked a late equaliser.
tom cairney or steven davis are the midfielders you are looking for :D

surprised to see wigan doing so well and everton as well. arsenal are struggling and on the verge of sacking arsene wenger. there have been some shocking results in the EPL seeing stoke batter liverpool 5-0 yes 5-0 and fulham beating arsenal 4-1 and west brom beating arsenal 4-2 so it has been pleasing results for us to see.

just an update on results:
napoli 1 chelsea 1 (drogba)
chelsea 1 stoke 0 (drogba)
fulham 1 chelsea 2 (lampard, alex) a.cole sent off
chelsea 1 villarreal 1 (drogba) alex missed penalty
chelsea 4 newcastle 0 (alex 2 pens, torres, mata)
chelsea 1 southampton 0 (eriksen) alex missed penalty carling cup quarters
aston villa 0 chelsea 2 (mikel and alex penalty)
olympiakos 0 chelsea 1 (terry)
chelsea 1 man utd 3 (terry)
chelsea 2 blackburn 1 (drogba and david luiz)

im satisfied with the results but we really need to kill off teams and take more of our chances. we played very well against man utd but failed to make our chances count. we finished top of the champions league group and have marseille in the 1st knockout round so quite tricky but hopefully should progress. in the fa cup 3rd round we have blackpool at the bridge and in the carling cup semis we have watford whilst the other is wigan vs west brom.

injury update-lampard is back after being out for 3-4 weeks with a torn groin muscle and essien should be back in 3-7 weeks.
