how the **** do you get Gattuso, Klose, Borowski and Dani Alves to Juve in 2008? :O
Klose on a free in 08. Gattuso and Dani Alves were transfer listed by request, 25 and 23 million each respectively. Borowski was 10 million. I paid all of them in monthly installments. I haven't made any profit in this game, but who cares, the TV money pays for my transfers (H) And yes, I'm in the red.
 
So I started a new game with Racing, in my first season I sold a lot of players to get some money in ( got 11 million pounds in total ) and I bought no-one in. Media was predicting me to finish in 19th place but I ended it in 9th so that was good for me.

In my second season bough in a couple free players and others that cost a good amount ( my best buying being a transfer listed Giuly at Barca for only 2.4 million pounds ). Did a rather horrible job selling players though, only got like 1.5 million pounds in.

Here is the table so far in February



So far so good, hoping to keep it up.



Here is my squad with stats, Zigic is great so far(Y). Giuly is already leaving me, I got a good offer from Valencia and he was whining about getting more money which I could not offer him so I decided to cash in on him while I could.

Racing is quite an hard team to start with, good job there.
Yea, the first team is not bad ( other than not having a good LB and my only good CB is Garay...the other one makes too many mistakes that have cost me quite a bit of points ) but if one of the more important players go down to an injury than I am in trouble. It's not even funny how the performance of the team drops but so far the team has been doing good and next season I should have an even better squad.

EDIT - Just got done with my second season



Very happy with how that ended, hopefully next season I can get a CL spot and win a cup too. Zigic is a monster, he ended the season with 47 goals in 47 apps.(Y)
 
It's tough.... the board is incredibly short-sighted. For example I have another two years on a <200k pound a year sponsorship deal.... and I'm in IT Cup (if anyone cares, I had to play the last game again.. ended up 6th because Ipswich lost their final game this time, top 3 and Chelsea - champions - in the CL, Ipswich, Charlton, Norwich in UEFA). A couple of times they FORCED me to accept offers for my better players (though 4.5 million pounds for 2 League One players wasn't bad), which sort of sucks.

A huge problem was also that the stadium size always lagged behind where the club was. I was in League One with a sub-5000 stadium, Championship with a sub-10000 stadium, even now it's just a 17,7xx seater. It meant that a competitive side makes the finances a problem. Luckily I always had a supply of insanely good young players (just as an aside, scouting honestly feels like cheating now...... European u19 Championship and "UK/Ireland" search and I bought out a whole bunch of dirt cheap 6-star potential players who became very good). Without the ~13 million I made from transfers before I even got to the Premier League the club would have been very much screwed.

Reputation was the biggest problem. My squad, even right now, has an average age of 23. I'd have a whole bunch of high-potential young players and there'd always be interest from big clubs, and my players would inevitably want to leave. There was one point in my first EPL season where of my 15 rotation players about 10 were either wanting to leave, attracting interest from every 'big' club in the world or handing in transfer requests. Hopefully the reputation will catch up to the club's status soon.

I have the same reputation problem, but i just won the UCL 3-2 over chelsea, Soren Larsen scored in the 122nd minute (H), so hopefully i should be able to hold onto my better players.
