This managed to get me my first manager of the month accolade as well as Jake Rosier picking up player of the month with 9 goals in 5 appearances + avg rating of 8.42. Furthermore, my new strikers Alvaro Jalo and Charles Adameno have 11 goals between them in 15 starts.
A long month for the players and it really showed in the last couple of games of the year where we shut out the opposition to great effect, dominated the last 2 games but very little to show for it. The squad is constantly being rotated, the contracts are coming to an end, people want more money and promotion pay rises. I fear things may get a little out of hand financially, but I'm going to ride the wave that is success and hope to earn some more funds in the near future.
With regards to new contracts, I have tried to tie down the same good players and tried to get rid of some of the crap, unfortunately, other teams dont want my crap, so best to let them see their contracts out and hope to cut the wage budget where it is being wasted. If you think money is tight, check out the wage budgets for the other teams in the league.
I have tried to loan championship players all month...hindsight...WTF was I thinking? No one from the championship wants to come and play for me! Im not managing my beloved WBA as of yet. January will be important to try and offload people, but as I said, no one wants my crap. Will scour league 1 and 2 for free loans, the midfield situation is out of hand, and as much as I say I'm gunna sort it, I've been lazy so far...time to pull the finger out before shit hits the fan son!
