I am proud to say that this story is back on.
SUMMER TRANSFER ROUND-UP
Thoughts: Some would call it a bad transfer window because of some BIG departures, but I believe this is the right decisions and further updates shall show it. I got 55 million pounds of all these transfers

DEPARTURES


John Ruddy: To Wolves for a 14.25 million fee
Why: Wanted someone new and he isn't getting any younger. I think that you'll like the replacements.


Korey Smith: To Southampton for a 2.2 million fee
Why: Never had a chance to play for Norwich as his stats were bad and weren't up to the challenge.


Jack Butland: Loaned to Everton on a 100k p/m fee.
With my new arrivals, he wasn't getting any time and was loaned to Everton, where Howard is not a first-team player. Wish him the best of luck.


Lionel Galland: Loaned to Toulouse F.C. on a 275k p/m fee.
Why: A regen I picked up last year, and he always seem to get this fee no matter what. :D


Diego de Girolamo: Loaned to Fiorentina on a 220k p/m fee
Why: Youngster with loads of potentials and needs gaming time.


Axel Kacou: Loaned to Coventry
Why: He's been loaned to Coventry again, after he impressed them with conceding 50 goals in 40 apps. Pretty decent for a youngster.


Daniel Pacheco: Loaned to Sunderland on a 80k p/m fee.
Why: I wanted him to leave, but only Sunderland came knocking with a loan bid that I couldn't refuse.


Ibrahim Afellay: To Vitesse on a 4.4 million fee.
Why: He needed to leave and I gained some cash from his 5k transfer fee lol.


Jese: On loan to Espanyol
Why: Got him on a free because he's good, but I might play him next season or the next.


Erik Pieters: On loan at Reggina on a 40k p/m fee.
Why: Loaned him out last season as well, as his stats are disastrous.


Manolo Gabbiadini: Loaned to Newcastle on a 120k p/m fee.
Why: He needs to develop and with the arrivals of free players, he'll be a reserve player.


Angelo Ogbonna: To PSG on a 14.5 million fee
Why: He played good on his time here at Norwich, but he was 26 and not improving. He was a decent PL player and I wanted new defenders on the team.


Tomas Rincon: Loaned to Genoa C.F.C on a 60k p/m fee.
Why: Loaned him to Mallorca, and I can't seem to sell him. Loan it is.


Sebastien Bassong: To Manchester City on a 20 million fee.
Why: He is 29, and that's the best I could've asked for him. He was unwilling to retire from internationals, as I need every defender in the January-February month. This was a painful departure.
Good business to get what you did for Ruddy and Bassong. Who were your signings? :P
Doing really good Jeremy, some nice regens being loaned out :D
Big transfers buddy. Not sure if losing Ogbonna will be beneficial, but you know Norwich better than I do. I agree with Rook on the Ruddy & Bassong departures. I hope the new arrivals are worth it mate.
You made a huge profit from those sales !

Some brilliant piece of business there Jerro!
Good to See this is back on!
About time that this story came back. You have managed to get in a lot of money for those players, especially Ruddy and Bassong.

Get your update up about who you have brought in!!
TRANSFER ROUND-UP
ARRIVALS
Thoughts: This was a highly succesfull window, with top players arriving for a top team as well :). We spent 77 million pounds in the summer transfer window.


Marc Andre Ter-Stegen: Arrives from Borrusia Mongendblach with on a 18.75 million fee.
Why: He's a great goalkeeper and had a nice asking price. Great player and will lead the club to glory.


Ryan Shawcross: Arrives from Stoke City on a 25 million fee.
Why: You might call this extremely over-priced, but it was the fastest transfer that I could do after Bassong joined City.


Mamadou Sakho: Arrives from Juventus on a 18.5 million fee.
Why: He was needed and was better than Ogbonna and to cough up an "extra 4 million pounds" was great for someone his quality.


Gaston Ramirez: Arrives from Southampton on a 14.25 million fee.
Why: He was transfer listed by request when Southampton went down. I had tabled a bid of 20 million the summer before, so to get him for that fee was an absolute steal.


FREEBIES
Frank Lampard: Arrives on a free from Hercules
Why: A great player in real life, and he has come to tutor the youngsters.


Jese: Arrives on a free from Real Madrid.
Why: A great player and on a free is great :D!


Seydou Doumbia: Arrives from CSKA Moscow on a free.
Why: Back-up to Destro and might take his spot if he mis-fires. Plus, he's a steal on a free. Finally, Erick Torres isn't playing his best.


Philippe Coutinho
Why: Great player and I want him to train Terra (amazing regen). Could be one of the greats along with Isco.
Great signings, especially Shawcross!
Doumbia's tongue looks weird. o.O
great signings! Looking forward to the upcoming season
Great signing Bro :) Keep it up!
