After reading a few other stories on here about this challenge I have decided to try it myself and blog how I get on to see if I can be a successful.

I have decided to start with Arsenal as it was the best way to get rid of all the deadwood that existed within the squad and sign the proven quality players that Arsenal fans have asked for over the last couple of years so that the current trophy drought can be ended.

I will voice my opinion on if this challenge works well.

Please comment because I want to know your thoughts and ideas.

Thats why its better to start at an ok club like Stoke as you cant sign half the players you have which makes it more interesting long term, Man U on my save already had Rooney and Falcao and they have now spent £126million in the second season window!

A mixed bag of results due to the fact that different players joined at different times so the squad started off with a load of regens and then got better as more players joined.

A good start to the season especially still being unbeaten in the league because the team were terrible in the Man United game with their strikers missing several chances to win the game for them. The cup exit I’m not that bothered about because I played several of the youngsters in the team against Man City’s full strength team.
