Here is a quick update as I head to the opening game of the season.
As you can see, I have decided to go for experience. They will get me out of this division. Decided to save a bit of money and keep them for wages if needed.
I appointed Gary Breen as player manager, amazed I got a player of his caliber to the club.
Also signed Wayne Rooney's brother, the next white Pele.
I am 19 games in. I brought in a couple of short term loans to help out the midfield, Fran Merida and Magnus Eikrem.
My tactic is now 2-3-2-1-2 (like a 4-4-2 diamond, but with the full backs as wing backs)
Without the short term signings we play a very drab effective game. With them and we can be awesome. Lee Trundle is a bizzare player. He can go games without scoring and then explode with braces and hat tricks. Kevin Phillips is steady.
I have opted to spend some of the money we had stored and sign the short termers. Merida is going to cost £2m and Magnus for 650k. I will also be adding Alan Lee on a free transfer.
