I've never qualified for division 1 and have been in division 2 for a while now.
Like most I've been drooling over SIF Perisic, so to find this I sold two of my better players (IF Perisic and SIF Brozovic). I still haven't bought him, hoping for him to go sub 400k!
The replacements were Mertens 83 > IF Perisic and Allan / Asamoah > SIF Brozovic. I also started to play Jordan Lukaku over Alex Sandro, just because u find him more fun. The result of these changes? 7 wins out of 8 along with the prospect of Division 1 football and automatic qualification to FUT WL (I assume for next weekend).
