Career MM96 & Samhardy Present: Sell Them Slowly

Recommended Posts

While I'm sure Bellerin's quit would get a vast money to spend, there isn't really good replacement under 10 M. Bellerin Out!

It was between Giroud and bellarin for me. Had to go bellarin as he is world class and in his prime whereas Giroud isn't getting any younger. Not sure it make much difference at the moment though as your flying.

Talk about getting an upgrade! You're playing the challenge wrong haha. Massive signing! 

I'm going back to the beginning and selecting Cech again.

MM96 and Samhardy Present

A H2H Battle

Season 1.5

Hi guys, I'm back with my third update of this H2H. In the last update we saw Sam continue his terrific start to this challenge after replacing Elneny with N'Zonzi. Already a solid 200 points behind, I really had to dig deep to keep pace. But was able to do that? Let's find out!

My Team

The Sale

The blue kit would soon become all too familiar for Rose

Vibe had its say after my last update and it decided that Danny Rose would be the one to follow Harry Kane as the next member of the squad that would be axed. In my opinion wing backs are the hardest players to replace in this challenge as there are so few good, reliable wingbacks out there to begin with and since they don't sell for too much you don't have a lot at all to spend on their transfers. This was the problem with Rose as well. He was only valued at 11 Million Pounds and try as I might, I wasn't able to get any club to bite for higher. The only two interested parties were Liverpool and Leicester and neither were willing to offer more than his listed valuation. In the end I decided to let him go to Leicester as I didn't want to strengthen Liverpool even further after I had just let Kane go there in the last window.

The Replacement

As I said, replacing wingbacks is devilishly difficult and there were simply no reasonable wing backs in my price range. Well...none bar one. Sporting had listed Johnathan Silva on the transfer list and with his valuation only being 2.3 Million Pounds, I was hoping they would be willing to part ways with him for less. Unfortunately for me, they actually wanted MORE than that so I was forced to abandon that idea.

Thankfully for me if I'm known for anything, it's being flexible as a manager and as such, I had an ace up my sleeve. Many people, including our very own, @Ashez were wondering why I had picked Eric Dier instead of Victor Wanyama in my starting XI. Well one reason was because I knew he was able to play at centre back! And with Jan Vertonghen able to play at left back as well, I decided it was time for some good ol' tinkering. Making these changes allowed me to bring the one stand out player that was available for a free transfer! None other than Super Mario himself, Mr. Balotelli!

A physical specimen indeed.

Starting XI

As I said, I merely slid Vertonghen to left back, Dier to center back and played Mario up front with Cummings!

The Season (So Far)

Despite all the build up for Mario, he suffered two reasonably long injuries during his first four months at the club:

This is one reason why his attributes in the screenshot above are so underwhelming. He had just returned from his second injury. Injuries in general really hurt the team during this half-season as Dier, Vertonghen, Son and Alderweireld all spent a month or more on the sidelines at various times.

Community Shield

What a game this was as we came from 3-1 down to win it on penalties!

Premier League

Unbeaten but seven draws is utterly woeful!

League Cup

Another absolutely mental game that went back and forth all the way!

Champions League

No drama here this time as we qualify comfortably

Individual Performances

A huge surprise on this front as:

And the best part of this is of course...you guys can't replace him!!

Well that's all from me folks. Despite the injuries (especially the one to Balotelli), I think we did absolutely brilliantly to top the table at this point. And with him hopefully featuring more regularly, I can only assume we'll improve! Anyways, do let me know what you think of the season so far. And who do you think should be the next to go. Will Eriksen or Son finally bite the dust? Will it be one of our superb defenders? Or maybe young Dele Alli? I'll link the strawpoll below for your votes.

Dembele currently in the lead with 2 votes but FIVE other players all have 1 vote each.

This man has the right idea XD

I voted Dembele to try and shut down your midfield and Ali will get you too much money

Not a bad idea. That midfield is all the more important when you're just playing 2 in there as opposed to 3.

Sam was supposed to post an update tonight but he wanted me to close the poll, and I refused.

He then threw a right tantrum (as you all know he can do) and refused to both close the poll or update.

So I've decided to be the bigger man here and close the poll so little baby Sam can post his update tomorrow.

Poll closed. Dembele will depart.
