First post,

I play as Norwich, 4-2-3-1.
First season I picked up free signings, Maresca being the best and Griffiths for a modest outlay who's an absolute beast. Won the league.
Second season, brought in Woodgate and Wheater in defence to partner thomson and dickinson.
Midfield, Diarra and Schelotto on a free. Signed Adam, Conway to play AML and Owen as backup.

I somehow scraped a fouth place finish. The league was incredibly tight and beating Burnley on the last game gave me 1 point over Man U who finished with a draw with Chelsea. Liverpool absolutely walked the league, thumped me 9-2 but Man City, Utd, Arsenal and Chelsea were amazingly inconsistent. I was hard to beat, good at home. Rubbish in the cups!

Anyway, 3rd season. I've picked up fazio to play DMC. Approaching Julio Baptista on a free. Macheda on loan. Cairney from Man City for £5.5m (negotiated by board). I'm looking for a good LB,RB, AML and backup AMR.

My budget is 30m, wages up to 45k. Thanks!

Good shout on Walker and Johnson. Line up as follows :

GK : Smithies
RB : Walker
LB : Dickinson - need to replace him desperately!
CB: Wheater
CB : Woodgate
MC : Fazio (ball winner)
MC : Cairney (playmaker)
AMC : Julio Baptista (free role)
AMR : Schelotto
AML : Johnson
CF : Griffiths / Macheda

Just a left back to find then really, not a bad little team for the money spent
