PSG decided to decimate my front line with lots of funds… took Augbamyang and Mkitarian off me for a combined 90M. Squad is unhappy, fans are unhappy.
Callum Wilson (brought before my time) requested to leave (Italian clubs were sniffing) and then pounced (55M)
My young French defender Diop poached by Monaco.
Managed to resist offers for Neves and Mandragora. Sold Galloway for a tidy sum (8M - brought him in for 2M) as I had managed to bring in Joe Gomez (Liverpool) and Rashford (Man Utd).
Got some nice South American regens - both 18-20. Torn by playing them in the first team or keeping them in reserves to get acclimitised. the 13 Foreigner rule is a pain as age means nothing…
Still need a forward (Capone needs to go back out on loan - but would like to keep him around).
One recognised Striker - Silva but he’s only one man.
I have had to bring in lots of players as Cech retired, Koscielney wanted to leave for a new challenge and Bellerin forced a move to Chelsea Supporters are “not another one”
And just when I manage to bring in Bernadischi (Juventus winger) not fully fit and another high profile player, whose name escapes me (again not fully fit) we lose the Community Shield 3-1 to Man Utd.
Think this is going to be a tough year. On the plus side, the average age of the squad is down to 24 and I have some decent young regens coming through. Whether I will still be in a job to see them mature is another story.
