Year 5 League 1So back in league one after a disappointing season, the board finally realised that they had to support me better. My scouting range was increased from Uk and Ireland up to all of Europe. This gave me the opportunity to search Europe for the best Regens.
TransfersI knew I would have to cash in on my valuable players to give me transfer funds to work with. I decided to buy plenty of regens now and hopefully develop them in League one in time for the championship. Only two of my signing aren't regens, both former Man United academy players.
Irish versatile midfielder, good stats all around - £40K from Nottingham Forest.
Attacking Midfielder/ Striker great first touch and finishing, class player - Free from Man United.
My most impressive regen signings were....
Centre back who I bought to partner Steven Caldwell, scouts say he has the potential to become a good Championship defender but I think he is better than that, scores a lot of goals from corners too- Free agent
Creative Italian midfielder with great technical attributes, scouts believe he has potential to become a good Premier League Midfielder - Free agent from AC Milan
Replacement Goalkeeper for Alex Smithies who I sold to Burnley for £700k - Jan is one of the best players at my club and after a year he is solid first team player- Free agent
Brian Steen Lindegaard
The answer to my striker problem, only 19 so had alot of time to develop, has Premiership potential- Free agent
Another Regen striker, has 26 caps for Wales u21 and he is only 20, should be quality in a few years- £150k from Llanelli, my biggest transfer fee.
End of season review
A very successful in both league and cup form. After all my new signing it did take awhile for them to gel and for me to get on form, I managed to qualify for the Play-offs and managed to keep my 100 % record of getting through the play-offs also beating Crawley 8-1 in the first leg of the semi-final of the play-offs.
The highlight of my season was however my great form in the Johnstone's paint trophy which I did win.
I believe now that I have enough quality to stay in the Championship next year as these regens really are impressing.
