I have seen 1 or 2 done on here before but would like to give it a try with my new 4-3-3 tika-taka formation after my successful try with liverpool.

Media prediction-19th
My aim- 10th or higher
Starting budget- £6.5, I chose mid table.

I also had my transfer revenue increased to 55%.

as i want to do well as I can on this I have done alot of scouting and looking at the good transfer list on web.

will also post my tactic if anyone wants it. (4-3-3, tika taka is my own made tactic which i decided to do when brendan rodgers stated that is the style he was hoping to , I also signed the we were linked with and it worked out well me the league) not sure if 3 poachers is the best idea for tika taka but its worked pretty well.

plan for transfers was to sell all wingers to make some money and general dead wood. my other aim is to try and get 2 teams a 1st and a second for when 1st are tired or it just needs a little rotation from time to time.

Summer transfer window


Victor Simoes-Al-Ahli(KSA)-2.3mil
Ahmed Soukouna-Free
Andile Jali-Orlando Pirates-190k
Guti- free tansfer
Jonjo Shelvey-Liverpool-£1 loan fee
Victor Anichebe-Everton-500k


Leroy lita-Watford-250k Loan
Wayne routledge-Middlesbrough-300k loan
Nathan dyer-Fulham-1.7mil loan
Kara-OH Leuven- loan (feeder club)
Mark Gower-Doncaster- 250k Loan
Kenny agustien-Burnley-1.3 mil
Rory Donnelly-Scunthorpe- loan

Net Spend



Meanwhile this transfer window didn't have much effect on transfer budget It did have a big effect on my wage budget. I am now 18k Over my wage budget.

Victor Simoes- 5 mil after 50
Victor Anichebe- 5 mil after 50
Fredy Montero-Seattle-1mil(2.5mil after 50 games)- future transfer


Remaining Budget

great match would of been better if i hadn't had goal dis-allowed

So what, you completely demolish Manchester City only to be beaten by Everton in the next game? That is a shame. After looking at your next result, I would suggest changing your tactic a little bit for away matches. Maybe you are going in too strong and are coming undone. Also, because you play a very narrow game, teams with wingers might be able to exploit that very easily.
yes i see what you mean I set my pitch to narrow which is why i think im doing well at home and so poor away I'm actually near the end of november before i started writing the story on here. give me a few moments and ill try put rest of results up. comment is appreciated

-12- Scott Sinclair

A bit of revenge for the league defeat and a nice away win for a change

Wigan Vs Swansea- Liberty Stadium

another nice win
after a few defeats on the road i decided to be a little more cautios, well not much different only swapping a striker for a DMC so playing a 4-1-3-2, my other option was going to be a 5-3-2 with wing backs but opted for the 4-1-3-2
