Season 5

With Adu now settled in France, hopefully we can push closer for the title.

Transfers In
Hugh outlay for Kessie and boosted the midfield with Zakaria and Dendoncker joining too.

Big money for Geubbels, Traore and Cyprien as I looked to trim my striker heavy squad.

Ligue 1
A late flurry of drawn games nearly cost us the league but we held on to lift the title.

Team Stats
Kalulu was deadly this season, with a goal a game. One to look out for. Memphis eclipsed Adu in the FL position with a great season also.

Ligue 1 Best Player
Kalulu deservedly breaks the PSG hold on this title.

Ligue 1 XI of the Season
Much better spread my players here with 8 of team making the side but no Adu.

Best Player in Europe
He only played 15 games all season??

Star of the Season
Kalulu adds this title to his list of awards.

Stars Team of the Competition
We go one better and have 9 players in this team but again no Adu.

World Best XI
Kalulu gets the world nod too making the best team.

Another title to add the trophies but a poor season cup wise.

Freddy Adu

Oh Freddy, this wasn't your year. His stats took another big hit and I was struggling to get much out of him at all.
Just 8 goals and 4 assists to his name. Disaster season!

His attributes are painful to look at but all bits help at this point for a bigger total. It won't be easy for the next manager to beat your score. So keep adding to it for as long as Adu is capable of.

Its horrible. He kept getting this niggling 1-2 week injuries over the season. I think @kts365will be way ahead of me when he finishes up.

Jeez! Freddy is not looking good is he. Like BG said just keep plugging away and everything now is a bonus.

Hoping for a better season next year but I think things can only get worse!

I did see him too and he does look very bad. I might add on a "Going out with a Bang" Challenge for him.

Season 6

So after a season and a half settled in France, an interesting offer came my way so I decided to uproot again and head to Holland and Ajax.

Freddy joins the Ajax revolution for a mere snip at 900k

Rolling back the years, must the relaxed Dutch enviorment suiting Freddy well.
efb855584c90cad3be470f9d6802a668.png

Transfers In
Lots of squad building here. Midfield was the main focus with Grujic, Augusto and N'Doram proving good deals. Plus wonderkid Rui Pedro for just 800k.

Transfers Out
So sadly my Brazilian wonderkid regen Countinho was sold within a year (big club release) but made a tidy £50m profit inside 6 months!

Team Stats
Coutinho was leading the way but sadly sold in January leaving Cassierra to lead the line well. Freddy had a tremendous season also. Grujic and N'Doram providing the strength in midfield.

Freddy Adu

What a difference a year makes!
His final move Holland proved a masterstroke as he puts in his best season yet with 21 goals and 14 assists.

Perhaps not as many games in Holland but the fixtures list is much kinder to a man his age. Keep rocking it! 

It does help with his stats being so poor!

Season 7

After his best season so far, Adu was still looking woeful in terms on stats so not sure how he will far this season?

Transfers In
A really good window for me with some solid additions in Amiri, Amavi, Vlasic and Tousart all coming in for good money.
d5854ee2d07001b269f6f18f15100072.png

Transfers Out
My Argentinian regen went for 67m after playing a handful of games! Crazy really. Just really squad trimming for the rest.

Eredivisie
We retain our title without any real trouble.
efa44fa875bc341c9cb676fa86ad63c3.png

Team Stats
Cassierra was on fire again, blasting 58 goals. Reynoso was backing him up well in the AMC slot alongside new signing Vlasic.

Picks up another USA Player Award.

So at 35 Freddy is creaking a lot. So many red and orange stats! He still managed record season with 23 goals and 16 assists. Long live Adu!

Really great season.

My biggest hope for this career is that Freddy will somehow still be playing at the age of 40!

I know, very surprisingly good!

I did manage to get him to 40 when I did a career a few seasons back. He even scored in the Champs League final at 40! (y)

Season 8

Just Freddy is approaching 35 but still doesn't seem to want to hang his boots up yet! 

Even Messi is impressed!
f65e70313c3414e11a7c5c30fca638a4.png

Transfers In
With Cassierra going in Janaury I managed to sign Donovan's regen plus some good cheap deals for Paz and Tammy Abraham.
026cd72bc0d634101d1dde911d0e1fc7.png

Transfers Out
Double blow as both Amiri and Cassierra wanted out and refused new deals so I had to cash in.

Dutch Cup
Adu the hero! A brace in the final helps us seal a comfortable win over Den Haag.

Eredivisie
Another title in the back with no real trouble.
5c3c5bd0147e39aa03c5b6bad411ec37.png

Team Stats
So I was tweaking with the tactics this season plus Cassierra wanted out and refused to sign a new deal so I had to get rid so I got some cash for him. Vlasic ended up top scorer with Freddy just behind him. Grujic was the driving force in midfield.

Freddy Adu

Not the greatest season for Freddy, partly my fault with switching his positions up as I look to squeeze more out of him.

He scored a decent 16 goals but with only 6 assists sadly. There is always next season (y)

Season 9

So with Freddy the wrong side of 35, it could be a struggle to get much more out of him.

No retirement for Freddy! The legend lives on.
b4c7d4f80569f5dfa0a723b924a7737c.png

Transfers In
Berbatov's regen was the big expense here but picked up Ze Gomes for a bargain too.
270c2693cca9ffe926da31b261cf984d.png

Transfers Out
Donovan's regen wanted out as did Penaranda and got good money for them.

Team Stats
More tactical changes but again we struggled to score goals, which has been my downfall so far. Ze Gomes top scored but with just 23 goals. Freddy had a ok season but I dont think I helped him. Vlasic and Llorente were my midfield strong points.
