Some fantastic signings right here, Gaston Ramirez is pure quality and Ter Stegen is a wall in goal. Sakho and Shawcross are also class and Phillip Countinho is a fantastic signing for a free. I hope Jese and Lampard can also make a difference. Keep up the good work. :D
Your an Fm genius! Cant wait to see Sakho and Shawcross together :D
Doumbia o.o
Coutinho o.O
Lampard O.O
Report: Guys, I'm on October, so I'm going to do a monthly update of August, September and October.

August Report: A decent pre-season, but losses against Gladbach and Leverkusen. Finally, this is the first final we have ever lost and it was a bad match for Destro who couldn't get on his feet. Results below. Bad results against teams we should be winning.

Match Report #1: Friendly
Montpellier HSC vs Norwich City
1' Luke Shaw
30' Gaetan Charbonier
32' Cesar Azpilicueta
46' Delvin Ndinga
48' Mattia Destro
FT: 2-3

Match Report #2: Friendly Cup Semifinal
Thoughts: Well, Leverkusen got what they wanted after we beat them in the CL Final. Revenge. It was a small goal margin, yet we lost because all of our players were average, except Handanovic, who got the Man of the Match.
Bayern Leverkusen vs Norwich City
3' Lars Bender
FT: 1-0

Match Report #3: Friendly Cup 3rd Place Play-off
Norwich City vs Espanyol
2' Cesar Aziplicueta
16' Manolo Gabbiadini
42' Wilfried Zaha
45(+1)' Vladimir Weiss
48' Manu del Moral
63' Jese
71' Manu del Moral
76' Manu del Moral
FT: 5-3

Match Report #4: Friendly
Borrusia Mongendblach vs Norwich City
20' Elias Kachunga
22' Angelo Ogbonna
81' Luuk de Jong
89' Havard Nordveit
FT: 3-1

Match Report #5: Community Shield
Manchester City vs Norwich City
64' Marouane Fellaini
84' Edin Dzeko (Missed Penalty)
89' Jack Rodwell
90(+2)' Jack Rodwell (Injury)
FT: 2-0

Norwich Player of the Month
Cesar Azpilicueta
Why: He scored twice in the pre-season and defended admirably. A great buy for Norwich and he is great defensively and when he runs up to attack.

Norwich Player of the Month #2
Samir Handanovic
Why: We didn't have any youngsters or young players other than Shaw who played a sole match. I decided to mention Handanovic after he played all pre-season matches, except the Community Shield.
good pre season.
Jeremy, I would like to know, purely from what has happened in your save, who would be the top 5 youngsters one should buy. Don't give me that Fierro, Gotze crap :P . I want some real finds.
Great story you have here.
Nice pre season results.
Good luck for the new season :)
What has happened so far: 2 losses isn't bad, but the Basel match was unacceptable. I expect more and more from this team. Next season I'm targeting the Invincibles, as 3-6 losses per season isn't bad, but the Invincibles would be the best. The Steaua match was a joy to watch and I was smiling it before I even picked the teams. In other news, Samir Handanovic is close to signing a 6 million deal with Lazio. Marc Andre Ter-Stegen has picked his 2nd injury this season, which is raising concerns and might give Butland some time after his Everton loan. I will be making monthly updates. League table, CL Groups, Capital One Cup draw and the fixture list are below as well.




Awesome Paker :D
Great results. Keep it up!
Great story Jeremy, keep it going!
Great start Jeremy, unlucky against Basel. Doing brilliantly in the league, just the one loss to City, but that was close. Don't forget to tell Everybody that signing Azipulecta was my idea. :P. Good luck with securing the title :D
I believe I have got a partial answer for you, Akash. One of the best and most consistent performer is Gabriel Torje. In my save, he's at Liverpool and cost them tons of cash. I do recommend him, as he is fast, one of the best right wingers in the game. I'm still looking for some Akash.
just read all the way through! amazing!!! keep up the good work!
Great results bro, keep it up :)

Ander Herrera: Joins from Sevilla on a 15.25 million fee.
Why: He was transfer listed by request and he was better than any of my CM's so I took the risk.

Konstantin Demeter: Joins from Basel on a 6 million fee.
Why: He is an amazing regen who impressed me at the group stages and leads the CL scoring charts with 7 goals. 6 million is a bargain for the second best striker at Carrow Road.

Jetro Willems: Joins from PSV on a 2.5 million fee + mystery player
Why: Didac was under-performing and I can't be taking such a risk and I am competing for CL, F.A. Cup and PL. Mystery player will be revealed in the departure list

Eden Hazard: Joins from Chelsea on a 45 million fee
Why: It's Hazard people! He's one of the best wingers in the game and I wasn't going to let Barca beat me on another signing! Some people will leave or already left because of him.

Next updates will be put up soon with the departures and the free market!
