in all fairness you have probs bitten off more than your squad can chew meaning you dont have a good enough squad to compete in the premiership, realistically another season in the championship might of done you some good :)

how about 5 at the back with 2 defensive midfielders, 2 attacking midfielders and a striker then play counter attacking football ?

sign players from teams that went down and look at the loan/transfer list and n free players.
sell any players that arent up to it to give you some more cash
might get Adam etc

sign toti from salamanca he creates and scores plenty of goals!..play him on the left so he can cut inside onto his right foot ,you wont regret it also you would want a strong defender like james collins to be the man in the heart of your defence

maybe try looking at the big clubs and seeing who they have released as there's normally at least 1 or 2 names that are still up to standard. looks through reserve teams as you might fins someone has fallen out with their manager. make sure to do a player search where you get your assistent to filter out unrealistic targets then look in contract view and sort by value as you get to see the asking prices on that view and you might find some real bargins.

check all ure highest earners and sell them then sell most of your reserve players and see what fund you have

its already been said but check the teams that have gone down and check sides from the championship that are underachieving

also look for free transfers and possible loans
