that’s what i’m using at the moment. 1 season in, finished 4th with sports direct but had to sign strikers. flat 442 like it says, gets some good counter attacking in and a lot of long through balls and wingers switching the ball between flanks. Don’t imagine it will hold up next season if more teams start playing defensively against me.
Bit gutted, was 2nd for the last 7 or 8 games and we fucked it up with a draw in the last match. no one was catching liverpool though, they were some 9 points clear despite going on a losing streak at the end of the season. villa, sheffield united and brighton went down. won the league cup, which completed next seasons objective of ‘win some silverware’. also completed the season after’s objective of ‘qualify for the champions league’, and then new owners have come in and given me 5 years to win the league (but i only have 12 months on my contract and a budget of 50m).
Not got any shortlist yet; i got driussi in at the start for about 13m, and haaland for 30m (10 then, ten in summer, ten next summer) in January. made willems loan signing permanent and brought in viktor fischer at the second attempt. Trying to bring in lisandro martinez because i need a better left footed center half, he’s young, and still only cost 13m or so 1 year after moving to ajax.
