Hey

I have decided to take on the global free agent challenge with a twist. I will be taking charge of my local team West Bromwich Albion and I'm only allowed to sign players under the age of 23 meaning people like Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo cannot be signed.

Anyways check back later to check out who I did sign

Pre-season

Not a bad pre-season with new players joining all the way through and getting used to the tactics which is why there is a mixed bag of results.

The disappointment of the month was the loss to Manchester United but this was made up by the win in the semi finals of the Capital One cup meaning the Baggies are on the way to Wembley. Our opponents will be Manchester United who we lost to away and drew at home so a tough task to bring the trophy home.
