    Avoided relegation by goal difference :relieved:
    nice :)

    Thanks. :) Had a dreadful end of the season, thought I was going to get relegated but the good goal difference was just enough. :relieved:

    Do players ever back down when they want to ask for more playing time? All I ever get is ❤️❤️❤️❤️ like "As a player, I can make life very difficult for you."

    Just tell them they can leave and they'll leave you in peace for a while, it's easier on the whole squad.

    Think I'm in my fifth season now, we've had a few decent signings. Managed to get Fekir very early on, but his injuries has really stunted any chance of growth. We were quite unlucky to go down, went into the play-offs because of GD with 11 wins all season, we should really be enough but we only had something like 3 draws, soon as we pulled Hannover I knew we weren't staying up. They really are a jinx, kept my job comfortably though lel.

    West Ham got Champions League, Villa somehow finished 7th, and Saints got relegated, standard.

    Southampton would be a quality pick, at least you could remove some players but elevate youth of a high enough quality to compete.

    Maybe just lacking match fitness? Stick him in the reserves for 2 or 3 games to get up to speed.

    @Handy Andy " Finances are weakening badly in mid December, the board having to inject cash to meet the regulations. Taking Tom Cleverley on loan probably didn't help matters lol but am building up a nice lead before I have to crisis sell in January.

    Nice :)

    I have had the board do that a couple of times on Reading saves, not that it really helped much :/

    Who do you think will go in January?

    Kramaric, Matty James and Drinkwater are the likely to go. Worth around a combined 20 or so million and starting to really push me for an exit.

    I'll likely not be able to replace so Cleverley if he stays, Andy King and Jamie Vardy to take their place. Not quite the same unfortunately.

    King has been pretty good for me in the prem, Vardy hasn't played a game though :tongue:

    Tbh you probably only need 40 points from 25 games to go up, 93 should be enough.

    Sounds an attainable total, the board only wanted the playoffs in the 1st place but with a contract that only lasts until the end of the season I'll probably leave no matter what they offer me.

    Who did you pick after your sim season btw?

    @Pieman25 started 2 separate saves, one with Southampton, one with City, on the City one atm :)

    Playoffs will probably only need another 20-25 points, so you should be fine there :)

    Let me know how you get on when you run the Southampton 1 mate, interested to see who you have to sell from that squad.

    If Osvaldo returns he could tear apart morale in the squad right from the beginning.

    Struggling to stick to a save as well at the moment.

    Haven't managed in Spain in this years one I think so I've gone with Deportivo as my latest one. Hoping to stick with it long enough to get them back to the days where they were La Liga contenders in the early 2000's and even got to the UCL Semi-Final's. Remember them having Roy Makaay (Amazing), Diego Tristan, Pandiani and Albert Luque.

    This game is such a joke sometimes. I win 5 of out of my last 6 games to qualify for the promotion playoffs, then 4 of my starters go down with an injury before the playoffs and I go out 3-2 on agg. Not to mention they don't use away goals in Uruguay so I had to go to damn extra time
