Pre-season update. Transfers & Matches: 2013

First of all: I'm letting go of the home-grown rule. It's too difficult to play for the prices, last year I had extremely much luck and I don't want to depend on luck to win the league (or anything else).

so the transfers:

14 players for free went out, most noticeable: Nate Jaqua, good for 6 goals.
furthermore: Brunner went to Seattle for a player exchange + 2 Draft-Picks. McLauglin to Columbus for a player exchange, and Califf to LA Galaxy for a 2 draft picks and a small fee of 150K. George John was send to AEK Athene for a fee of 250K, And Adu is going to brondby in the Summer for free. Happy to see Adu leave in the summer, as he has a wage which is around 30% of my total wage budget (53K a week).

There were a lot of good players coming in: Mirosevic is a CM from the Player exchange with Seattle, Meridith a goalie from the player exchange with Columbus. Braun (my 5th striker, so a last resort) came from montreal for free. Gomez is a new striker (no6) which needs a lot of attention before securing a higher place :)

My new LB is called Leonardo, a free, and my new CD is called leonardo, a free (no, no joke). Fülöp is my new goalie, and I have 3 new strikers for the 3 striker positions. Brazilian superman Jô signed for 5 seasons for a 4.6K a week contract, and so did the Argentinians Parra and Bravo. Defender Sarr came for the CD :)

And the friendlys:

I played 20 friendly matches pre season, won 12, drawed 6, and lost 2 (against Hoffenheim and Toronto FC). Fluminese was a 4-0 win, Boca a 1-1 draw and a 4-1 win, Vasco a 0-0 draw and Lorient was a 1-0 win. In 11 of the 20 matches i kept a clean sheet, and in just 1 match I got 2 goals against :)

Started the season nice, but that's for the next update :)
This is a good story, never seen a Pentagon last more than a few posts. I trust we will see another like it on FM13?

Never did understand MLS rules! Haha! But great story mate, just a small question- where do you plan to move for the next part of the Pentagon Challenge?
