Transfers

Arsenal Spent over £50m but also took in over £50m. Will Josh Murphy, Elseid Hysaj & Carlos Fernandez fill the gap left by Alexis Sanchez, Niklas Sule & Youri Tielemans

Aston Villa
do very little business after there play off wins

Cardiff lost key players Jose Abella to Real Madrid & John Hou Saeter to PSG but spent big on James Mccarthy, Lucas Evangelista and 9 other first team players.

Chelsea
Ramon Diaz was the strange choice to replace Conte and with him Chelsea were the big spenders £38m & Anthony Fayers for Donis Avdijaj, £25m for Manolo Gabbiadini. Spent £91m brought in £15m. Ouch Win now it is then!

Crystal Palace Another balanced widow. Vydra, Mane and Ajer are all Premiership proven quality to replace Benteke, Egbo & Lazaro

Fulham Lost Connor Mahoney to Tottenham but used the cash to build squad depth in the summer
Hull return with buying a squad of meh players


Liverpool Exciting summer with Sergi Samper & Curro the main additions with plenty dead wood moving on

Man City Antonio Conte wasnt out of the Premiership for long as the took the Man City job. Youri Tielemans & Achraf Sassi also join for £43m with squad players Chancel Mbemba & Javairo Dilrosun making way

Man Utd Whats my old boys up to! An U18 and 3rd choice keeper join while we sell better back ups Johnstone & Savic along with our back up defensive group of Scope, Mensah & Romagnoli. Fred joins Sporting for a bargain £7m and Romelu Lukaku joins Barca for £21m. Barca are ******** us with transfers!

Middlesbrough had plenty to spend after selling Josh Murphy for £23m and lots of Championship players arrived from Nottm Forest with that cash for some reason.

Newcastle Lots there main striker Paco Alcaer to Bayern Munich for a modest £21.5m but the bargain of Mauro Icardi £5.5m will make up for that. Throw in Diego Poyet and a few others and its been a reasonable summer for the toon


QPR Return to the Premier League and do a great job adding Jordan Rhodes, Kieran Trippier, Jack Whatmough & Ryan Gauld. They should be easily safe

Southampton. Selling Donis Avdijaj opened the floodgates for a £88m mega binge that screams of the Chelsea 2020 plan Top 4 or bust! Ronaldo still in town too


Stoke Made a good profit off Anthony Berenstien and spent it all on Pavels Kurakins who after 3 games looks like a class signing

Sunderland One big buy Juan Iturbe £12.5m and one big sale Jonathan Silva £8.25m


Tottenham Cleared some of there depth to bring in Man Utd back ups and Gerard Pique. Quite summer to strengthen rather than rebuild

Watford Modest and sensible summer


West Brom Two big sales take the eye again with Sassi joining Man City for £23m and Bruno Fernandes to Real Madrid for £12.5m. Thye managed to spend some of there cash this time though but the best move of the summer has to be signign Ayoze Perez from PSG for £20.5m. Was solid for Newcastle & Tottenham and if not staying at the club long term should at least make them a good profit


West Ham 3 Players Wilfreido Castro, Seamus Coleman and Sreten Pajovic come in while there possibly the only side not making money from sales


Will try run the season sim to the end of season tomorrow and get it up tomorrow. Happy with 2 season updates a week? one for weekend and one midweek? Will put up a save at the end of season update tomorrow, would usually do one for the transfers but end of season should be up tomorrow afternoon

Excellent job man!
2 per week is fine with me :)

My "worst signing of the season" award to Josh Murphy comes back to haunt me now :(
I just hope my youngsters have developed enough to start breaking into the 1st team!

Wonder how old Icardi is in the game, but 5.5 million? Steal.

Disappointed that Alcacer left for only 21.5 million, but eh. Pretty solid window imo.

Score one up for Joshster as Man City led by Louis Suarez win the League for the first time since our first season of the save 2014/15. Man Utd, Arsenal & Chelsea complete the top 4 with Chelsea well behind the top 3.
Arsenal won the community shield
Tottenham & West Brom secure Europa League
Watford & Stoke are long term sides in the save that go down with Hull who never spent like a side wanting to stay in the league
Swansea, Bolton & Norwich the top 3 come up from the Championship Swansea have a loaded squad while Bolton have Zach Clough and his 28 goals

View attachment 200800
If any of the big teams had been able to see into the future i think we would have been happy to part with £20m for the returns. 33 year olds Messi & Suarez complete the list.



January Transfers
View attachment 200799
View attachment 200798
Arsenal made a huge splash on deadline day for Erick Torres with Man City the only other team making a big move with Arjan Van Wingerden from Newcastle for £15.25m. Stoke somehow got £7.75m for Nahuel Leiva but adding Jurgen Locadia didnt hault the slide, Sergi Diaz & Jhonny Mercado lef the EPL in the biggest deals




Manager Movements
View attachment 200797
Newcastle made the most surprising move sacking Jurgen Klopp for Malky Mackay. Feel sorry for Jose getting sacked at Liverpool, Only 10th but there side is well down on talent. Spoiler alert Paulo Bento of Benfica takes over from him. Even having Ronaldo leading the dressing room couldnt save Ryan Giggs and Tony Pulis is the old safe pair of hands in charge there. Gary Bowyer hould have been sacked by Stoke ages ago while Mark Hughes suffered for religating Watford

It appears Chelsea like losing cup finals now... 4 in 2 seasons!
Nice to Lewandowski still paying off his price tag as well (even if we did sign two strikers to try and replace him -_- )

So i owe you a thanks for keeping me going, my girlfriend may have other thoughts tho haha

If I'd only known Montella was this **** at transfers... Selling two of our best players, and especially selling 199PA Zaragoza to Man Utd :( Guess it shows how much of an influence a proper chairman can be! Good start to the season though :)

Cant say im too impressed with Simeone's work either selling Janazaj & 2 of the highest rated midfielders i had. We made them look good

Season 2021/22





League
View attachment 198494
Man Utd are back on top of the Premier League only just beating out the free scoring Man Citu who almost broke the 100 goal barrier.Arsenal were a further 4 points back, draws costing them a shot at the title and Tottenham edged out Chelsea & West Brom to finish 4th.
Sorry to say this WBA fans but due to Championship team Stoke finishing runners up in the FA Cup they get the final Europa League spot with Chelsea and League Cup winners Southampton. Poor Joshter his side were only 2 wins away from the domestic treble, hard to say they are becoming the strongest team in the sim era
Epic battle at the bottom 6 with only 3 points between 15th place Liverpool & relegated Middlesbrough. Norwich and im stunned to announce the bottom side Newcastle United who let in 77 goals on there way to loosing 25 games.




Player Stats
View attachment 198493
Some how at the age of 35 Luis Suarez is stil the top player in the league Messi only started 22 games and his long term replacement Diego Berardi is starting to take the mantle as there MVP. Lewandowski kept the golden boot from Suarez hitting 29 goals.




Sim awards



Team Of the season
Tottenham solid top 4 but will be expected to close the gap to the top 3. No team really stood out for the right season. Sunderland moved into the top 10 while West Brom in the top 6 look for real.


Team let down of the season
Newcastle fell to 14th last season and this year go out of the league. Like last time they should be too strong to be in the Championship for long but will need the right man to fix up that club.


Player of the season
Luis Suarez
View attachment 198493
End a 8 year wait for Englands top Player award. Last years winner Ronaldo only played 15 games. Surley this is Messi, Ronaldo & Suarez's last stand!


Player let down of the season
Mduduzi Mahashe
View attachment 198492
Part of a improving Sunderland team but the stats dont lie for the wing back who as a teenage looked ready to be one of the best left backs in the game


Signing of the season
Marc-Oliver Kempf
View attachment 198490
Looked a solid player coming into the league and has flourished with Southampton


Dud signing of the season
Bruno Fernandes - Chelsea
View attachment 198489
Over £20m spent and he's hardly kicked a ball and when he has it looks like he would have been better off not!


Top Scorer
Robert Lewandowski
View attachment 198488
Golden boot stays with the 33 year old Polish striker, First player in the save to retain the award. If only he arrived 4 years sooner!




Golden Ball
Luis Suarez
View attachment 198487
The Uraguayan got more points than 2nd Koke & 3rd Neymar combined. Not a Messi or Ronaldo in sight!




FA Cup Final
Stoke 2-3 Man City
View attachment 198486
They had to fight for it but City got a small reward for there great season.




League Cup
Man City 1-2 Southampton

No cup double as Soton came to fight and goals from Unai & Perez left them with a come from behind victory






Champions League
Arsenal 0-0 Man Utd, Arsenal win on pens
View attachment 198485
Arsenal win back the Champions League with Man Utd only penaltys away from a 3rd Title in a row. The headline here is Man Utds knock out aggregate score 21-3 over 6 games. Arsenal also destroyed Chelsea 8-0 in the Quarter finals. WOW




Europa League
Wolfsburg 2-1 Tottenham
View attachment 198484
Tottenhams amazing season fell 1 game short with defeat to the Germans. Spurs were the only English side in the last 16.






January Transfers
View attachment 198483
Strange window for the top sides. Man City get one of Arsenals top youngsters whil Arsenal & Man Utd sign, no offence meant but extreme back up players. Stoke tried to spend there way out of the Championship but missed the playoffs




Manager Movements
View attachment 198482
Move of the season was West Ham sacking Slavista Jokanovic for Javier Aguirre, who's only 63. He's been around forever! Liverpools Paulo Bent experience only lasted till February when Villa's Sean Dyche took over. Bento ended up at Newcastle getting them relegated. Chelsea's latest poor season cost Ramon Diaz his job and Luis Enrique is the next man up, 5th in the save! Sean Dyche is Liverpool's 10th manager in less than 8 years. relegated Newcastle are onto manager no10 as well. Graham Westley is Aston Villa's 11th manager since Tim Sherwood, Cardiff boss Russell Slade is the ONLY manager to have gone coast to coast. Next up Is Tottenaham & Man Utd with 2 gaffers each.
