That depends. Have you updated your player database or do you still have Sadio Mane, Victor Wanyama and Graziano Pelle? Do you already have Pierre-Emile Hjoberg and Nathan Redmond? I finished 8th with them in season one, on a limited budget. Fraser Forster and Ryan Bertrand were both long term injured so I brought in Sam Johnstone on loan from Manchester United and signed Ashley Cole from Roma on a single season deal. I also got Eder Alavarez Balanta, a young Colombian centre back from River Plate of Argentina. Steven Davis was brilliant for me in that first season. You have a central midfielder called Callum Slattery in your U18 squad; he's going to be very good - have Davis tutor him. Jose Fonte can tutor Jason McCarthy.

In season two, I sold Sadio Mane to Schalke for £40 million and brought in:
- Nathan Redmond from Norwich (art imitating life, before the fact)
- Croatian right-back Sime Vrsaljko from Sassualo (he eluded me in FM11 and FM14, but I finally signed him!)
- Kevin-Prince Boateng (on a free)*
- Ladislav Krejci, a left winger from Sparta Prague
- Patrick Bamford, on loan from Chelsea
- Fully fit Fraser Forster and Ryan Bertrand are as good as new signings, too.
- If Arsenal transfer list Calum Chambers, as they did in season three of my game, go get him - he's a Manchester United and England regular now, in my save, but only after I kick-started his career by signing him for Everton in the Championship.

*The Prince was a beast in the Shadow Striker role in my 4-4-1-1 and I had The Saints 5th in the Premier League when a boardroom takeover resulted in the termination of my contract.

By-the-way, the new home and away kit both clash with AFC Bournemouth's red-and-black stripes, so I had a yellow-and-blue third kit created in the Kits Forum on this site. I don't have a 3D kit version, so I used the in-game editor to set the closest template:
