Me (Watford) and Gregor (Norwich) been playing a net game for a couple of hours a day, for about 3 days. Just got season finished.

Have attached a few screenshots showing the final league standings, my squad and my transfers. I am sure Greg will do the same with his.

I beat Preston 4-0 last day of season (Away) and Derby drew with Barnsley (Away) to win me auto promotion, happy as i was predicted 6th and expected playoffs. Greg did me a big favour beating Derby third from last game of season, then i beat him (payback for humiliation earlier in season) 2-1 the game after and Preston secured the automatic promotion.

Don't think we were ever going to get near Reading, with Doyle (27 goals) and Kitson (29 goals) still there anyway :p

started tonights sesh top, finished it 2nd after 20 games.

Suffered when all my strikers got inj, the ones that came in sucked, didnt even contribute assits never mind goals, but meh they are on loan. When my 3-4 strikers did come back it took them about 4 games to start scoring agen :(, but managed to stay up the top

I signed:

Jose San Roman (No Work Permit)
Oscar (?) Esparza (?) (No Work Permit)
Alan Kardec

They were main buys, bought about 4 others without work permits also.

Esparza's a decent buy. He'll cut if or a mid-table prem team anyway. Try Cristian Rodriguez, he ran out of contract at start of second season on my Schalke game, so you could get him on a free. Semedo from Charlton would be a good defensive buy. Try some portugese, chile, mexican and argentinian clubs for realyl cheap half decent buys. Also, take advantage of the brilliant youth at Spanish clubs and get in some good loans. Look for a guy called Amrabat at Barcelona, only 19 I loaned him at Schalke and he was easily good enough and I won the league...

Also, I don't know how much money you've got but some great talent in French League as well. Andre-Pierre Gignac is really good, you'll have to dip a bit deep in pocket like, there's also Gomis. Alain Traore is a good midfielder and if the games are all designed the same, Schalke will have financial problems aroudn end of second season because they owe 150 million out in bank loans, I know my chairman had to accept bids for my best players...

I probably won't have esparza for 3 years! will be back in Champ or at another club by then!. Not looked at Rodriguez. Semedo im not interested in, had him at Hull and was injury prone and aab when played. I only have 400k left ish, and Amrabat has been looked at just not bothered.

Gignac i don't think is on the game from what i remember, as i did look.
