Pretty sure this is the only time I've ever been relegated in playing FM and CM.
Ended up going down 2 points of safety, if matches were 88 minutes long i would have probably survived by at least 7 or 8 points i dropped so so many in injury time
Most of my team is young though and better than last season, and hopefully the two homesick youngsters start performing this season and i should be able to crush the Champ. I have almost double the wage budget i did when last in the champ, stadium sells out 15k each week and is being upgraded a further 7k and training is also being upgraded so will be a bit more prepared for the prem next time !
I wasnt too worried about going back down, I knew my young team would be better plus the bank balance, you will surely be back next year in good shape to stay up.
I finished 9th, and i think Ive found something...
I use 2 tactics as Ive said before, but I dont change back and forth. I use whichever suits my squad balance.
I have 4222 with wingers and I have a 433 with wingers and 2 CDMs.
Ive noticed that for the last 4(or more) seasons, Ive started the season having build my squad around 1 formation(usually the 4222) and around 10 games in I havent been happy so Ive switched to the 433.
When I first change the formation, I seem to go on a real run of results, its happened every time. My first season in EPL, we were rock bottom when I changed it, we then went on championship winning form and were in the top half before slumping again to finish 15th(IIRC).
Gotta be worth a shot right?
Ive got my hands on 3 youngsters from Real Madrid for cheap(Im amazed because usually they want £50m for their kids), and they have a load more youth I wouldnt mind signing. In every save Ive ever done they get **** tons of talent. I always look at their B team and u19s for players.
Ive sold a few of the guys that I feel have stagnated or not good enough to keep me progressing. I got good money for them all too which was nice.
Amazingly, only 1 season after increasing capacity for around £15m, my board have decided to spend £45m on a new 25k seater stadium. Which seems retarded to me. Also, they have taken out a loan to build it even though there is almost enough money in the bank. they took out a loan for the full amount.
My wage budget is 900k a week now(at its max), which is a good thing because every season 4/5 guys need a new contract and they seem to want double what they previously earnt. I was given £50m to spend in the summer, plus I forced them to give me more of transfer revenue(now 95%).
It seems rediculously retarded that they have taken a loan for the stadium and then only built a 25k seater. I guarantee within 2 seasons they will have to build on that.
Anyone have any idea when my next boardroom take-over will happen? These guys are so tilting!
