Woah great signings there and god job shifting those players (and what others said about the price tags) :P What tactics are you going to be using this season? Decent pre-season but will be great to see how you start the season off with the new squad
Murtagh: Thanks, I hope the form can continue though.

Justice96: I paid a little more than I wanted to for him, but hopefully he can perform still.

Glenn T: Thanks pal, I need all the luck I can get. :P

k1rups: Umm, I'll be posting the tactics soon, but the main one I want to use (and used during pre-season) is the False 4-1-2-1-2 I used during my Rubin Kazan save, hence why I got rid of the three wingers. I haven't totally decided on the others, I have a few in mind to use.

Glazer: 'Moyes Is The Man For Us'

Since the arrival of David Moyes at Manchester United, and few new, and expensive, transfers, many fans of Manchester United, and football alone, have been questioning whether David Moyes is the best man to replace Fergie, after managers such as Jose Mourinho and Jurgen Klopp were lined up as potential candidates.

Owner Malcolm Glazer have now hit back at the comments, calling them 'ridiculous' and 'unneeded'. In an interview over the possibility of the unveiling of new kits and sponsors, once journalist bought up his views on David Moyes, which led to him being escorted from Old Trafford, and Glazer saying he believed Moyes is the man United need, and that he will do a better job than anyone could do.

Mourinho, the current manager of Real Madrid, stated that he isn't enjoying time with Madrid, and didn't deny that he was interested in the United job at a Real Madrid post-match conference. Mourinho had a spell previously with Chelsea in England, but has become known as a short-team manager, while the board in Manchester wanted a more loyal, long term manager.

Jurgen Klopp, who is currently managing Borussia Dortmund, the former club of new top striker Robert Lewandowski, denied any interest in the role, but was still heavily linked. When Klopp took the role with Dortmund, he had stated less than a week before that he didn't want the job, but still took the offer. Jurgen is a more loyal manager though, having stayed at Mainz for 7 years, and having currently been at Dortmund for 4 years, bringing them new success.

David Moyes is yet to comment on the situation, but Malcolm Glazer believes the criticism won't affect Moyes in any way, during his journey to become the next Manchester great.
Six more years of domination.
Tellak: Only six? Please... :P
Y'know, you could just sell Welbeck for 25m now :P If you offer him up before Valencia, Chelsea will grab him at that price.
Arvind: I did think about that, but wanted to try him out for a bit in the squad first, just in case he's worth keeping. I'm hoping to use the money to try and get Baines, but I wasn't going to buy him until January anyway as I want Buttner to have a run about for a bit.
Buttner stinks! (see what I did there?) Highly suggest you get someone like Neil Taylor who is cheap(6m ish) and class as well, since none of your CBs can play LB(except Evans maybe)
I think you should keep Welbeck. If he gets the game time and trained properly he scores loads of goals. In my Bayern save, he's at Chelsea and was European top scorer with like 40 goals in 2016.

Moyes: 'My Tactics Will Win The League'

David Moyes sensationally claimed today that his three tactics are good enough to win the league, and with the players he has available, he hopes he can storm Europe in just his first season in charge. Moyes stated he didn't want to give away too much information, but provided the fans an early insight in what sort of football to expect...

The False 4-1-2-1-2

The False 4-1-2-1-2 is the tactic I used for Rubin Kazan and worked really well. This works just as well home and away, but is used for those decent, middle table teams. With this tactic, we should be able to get a comfortable win in those games we are expected to win. This would be used against teams such as West Ham, Swansea and Fulham.

The 4-4-1-1 Strong

The 4-4-1-1 Strong is a tactic useful in Away matches, or games against stronger teams where you want to build the game from the back and launch Counter. Playing in defensive against strong teams work well. This will be the tactic I use in most European games, and when playing sides such as Manchester City, Chelsea, Tottenham etc. This will be vital to the season, getting the goals on the counter when needed most.

The 4-2-3-1 Dominator

The 4-2-3-1 Dominator is very useful in Home matches, or games against weaker teams where you want to dominant and create a lot of chances. This tactic opposes the 4-4-1-1 strong, where you attack, attack, attack. This is the tactic I will most likely use in the early stages of cups, against teams of the Championship standard, or even League One and League Two. I will also use it against teams in around the bottom six of the league, to improve the goal difference.
