I started a save earlier with the love of my life, Liverpool Football Club. I've never done a story on a website on any of my games on FM, so after reading through a few on here I thought I'd give it a go.

Pre-Season
View attachment 350203We didn't have the best of pre-seasons but we stayed unbeaten wining 3 games and drawing 2 out of 5. Daniel Sturridge and Eduardo were both on fire scoring 6 goals between them.

Transfer Window
View attachment 350209
I made 3 signings to strengthen the side. I was thrilled to pull off the Raul Albiol signing from Real Madrid. He is on a season-long-loan costing a loan fee of 200K a month and 25K wages per week. Eduardo was on the transfer list for just 5M and one word popped into my mind after seeing his stats, 'bargain', and seems happy to be a squad player. Finally, Simone Pepe, who was also unwanted at his club and as I needed a first team right winger, he became my number one target. The deal took a while to go through as he failed his medical once but the Liverpool fans reacted well to the signing once it was all complete.

I sent a number of younger players out on loan (Coady, Yesil, Teixeira and Smith) this also helped the wage reduce. A number of clubs were interested in Luis Suarez (Arsenal, Chelsea, PSG) but only Tottenham could pay 30M upfront and Luis was happy to go there. There wasn't much interest from clubs for Coates or Martin Kelly so once Arsenal and Stoke came in for them I bit their hand off.

I find it strange you have sold one of your best players and not replaced him with class.
