Football Manager Diary – February 2016 – Who is the mystery signing?

Football Manager 2014 LogoSo its Feb, we’re top of the league, and in the knockouts of the Champions League. Our team is set and looks great, but we did make one mystery signing at the end of the transfer window.

A signing whos contract was almost up, with just 6 months left on his contract, for a fee of 1.5 million after 50 league games. A guy who has won Champions Leagues, World Cups, who has won everything there is to win.  One of the best players in his position

Who is he?

Football Manager Diary – January 2016 – Dont expect any Transfers!

Football Manager 2014 LogoSo its January, usually one of the biggest periods for me, but for once I’m not expecting it to be.

Its time for West Hams first run in the champions league. Come on!

In the last instalment I did all my transfer business, get my squad sorted and then one of my 1st team defenders (Tomkins) gets a long term injury a week before the season starts.

Fucks sake.

Football Manager Diary – Season 3 2015/16 Preseason

Football Manager 2014 LogoSo we’ve done the squad review, so now its time to start the transfer activity.

In the squad review I identified the following positions as needing expansion : A left back and a new centre back are must buys, a right winger is needed to replace Zaha whos loan is finishing, a young centre midfielder would be nice but not urgent, and a second striker more like Carroll may be needed to give him a rest occasionally.

So lets see how we get on….
