Vaclev Kadlec becomes good £1m
Tom Cairney £3m
Macheda loan
Lee Hodson £1m (at most)

Try the out-of-contract players or the transfer list. Some decent players on there usually

Get Rafael on loan (a must sign) and sign Garra Dembele for striker cover. Somehow (and I still don't know how) I got offered Gary Cahill for 6.75 million in installments and played him at the back as a ball playing defender. I also signed ruben yttergard jennssen and played him as a deep lying playmaker.

I sold a LOT of players, I just use one upfront - Ishmael Miller who was class as an advanced forward. He really is the only one who is premiership quality. Bednar, ***, Morrison, Luke Moore and a lot of others can go and should get you a bit of money.

I was on course for 7th all season until Doorans and Miller got injured for three + months each and that set me back to 10th.

One player who I missed out on signing (just simply because I forgot about him) was Dida on a free - way better than Carson.

usual team tactics + roles:

Very much Barca inspired fluid, attacking football with short passing and quick tempo.
4-5-1

------------------------Carson----------------------------

Zuiverloon----G. Cahill-----J. Olsson---------N.Shorey

-----------------------------------------------------------------

------------------------S. Reid------------------------------
---------------R.Y. Jennsen-----Doorans--------------

S.Choyi---------------------------------------------Brunt

--------------------------Miller----------------------------


Specific roles: Brunt as advanced playmaker on attack, ditto for Doorans
Choyi as inside forward on attack
Yttergard Jennsen as deep lying playmaker
S. Reid as an anchor man
vs weaker teams Mattock can be given first team experience and I'd also use Rafael as a wing back in place of Zuiverloon from time to time.
Miller as Advanced forward.

If you're trailing a game then bring on Rafael or Jerome Thomas to inject a bit of pace into the side.

Not only did I just squeeze a top table finish, I got to the semis of the carling cup and the final of the fa - though I have to admit the draws were very favorable.

Just to add to what I have written, Brunt finished the season as top scorer with 14 goals and 11 assists and Miller had 11 goals and 8 assists in 20 games before the injury. All that starting line up with those signings and those tactics finished the season with high 7 ratings with the exception of Choyi and Reid - they're the areas you need to strengthen for next season.

Most of your team is disposable with the exceptions of dorrans, brunt and miller
