Right so i have decided to do an Arsenal story as i have never been them on FM and i have played various versions of FM since 1998.
I have a few aims for this save.

Unbeaten Season
Unbeaten League Season
Win Champions League

These are my main aims but i will just see were the save takes me i have set myself the one rule which is that i will only bring in players 23 years old and younger like in my Man City save.

Season Expectations

View attachment 373496

I have been given a decent budget which can be raised with changes to the wage budget, i also plan on selling a bit of deadwood.

Key Players

Jack Wilshere AMC

Lukas Podolski AMRL/ ST

Santi Cazorla MC

Im looking at bringing in a new LB, Striker and Winger some positions like GK and centre backs will do for now but will be added to in the near future.​

Great, I suggest buying Neal Maupay for the future, and using Olivier Giroud as main striker as he tends to get about 25 goals in first season for some reason!!! Unrealistic I guess!

i suppose they based it on his last season in france where he did well, bit like Borini was always getting goals in a Liverpool save i had.

Do one that you will enjoy not just what you think people want to see, maybe play the save for a few months before creating the story and consistent posting maybe at least 1 update a day so it stays fresh in peoples minds

Summer Transfer Window 2012

Transfer History

View attachment 373529

I made a lot of changes and spent a fortune but it was all still for a net spend of a mere £3million definetly the Arsenal way!
I brought in some quality youth and future stars and even a couple of Benders.


Alex Grimaldo DL £1.1million

View attachment 373530

A youth player from the Barca Academy and should be pushing for a starting place at Left back in a season or two.

Will Hughes AMC £4.7million

View attachment 373533

Is an amazing player and will become arguably the best English player in the game and will love playing with Wilshere!

Eric Lamela AMRLC £15million + Gervinho


View attachment 373537

Another decent player from a former save, when i saw Roma interested in Gervinho i made this cheeky offer which they accepted!

David Ospina GK - £10.75million

View attachment 373539

Should have solved the Goalkeeping problem we had and be our number 1 for years to come

Kyriakos Papadopoulos DC - Part Exchange Diaby and Szczesny

View attachment 373541

Should come straight into the first team with Mertesackers recent departure .

Teemu Pukki ST - £5.5million

View attachment 373542

I wanted a backup striker for cup games and when giroud is tired or injuried and could well take over from him in the future.

Sven Bender CM - £13million

View attachment 373544

Lars Bender CM - £12.25million

View attachment 373545

My Benders may well play next to each other this season with Arteta and Diaby gone, Wilshere injuried and Cazorla playing as an AMC.

Right 2 league games in August next​
