I’ve been thinking a bit about this and I’m thinking losing one of the strikers might be a problem.

Well that’s if you have to stick to this formation. 

I’ll be sticking to the formation. I may drop the wingbacks back to a standard position eventually, I’m not sure yet.

If by any chance the result of the vote is a tie, I’m willing to extend the poll by one hour or sell the player with the highest average rating. Whichever one you guys reckon is best :)

Player Reveal Update

So as decided by the members of Vibe, the player that I must sell first in this career happens to be my ever reliable holding midfielder, Thiago Alcântara. A real quality player who I will no doubt struggle to replace for 10% of his selling price. 

As it turned out, Thiago was the most valuable member of the squad at £72m. So I offered him out for £70m to test the waters and Real Madrid and Man Utd came in with offers. Those offers were unfortunately “final offers”, so I reluctantly accepted as there was in my opinion no chance I was going to get any more than that. He eventually signed for Man Utd where I hope he does better than the current crock of shit we have 😛

No idea why it says he moved to PSG as well. Probably a bug. Actually, it’s most definitely a bug. Not even surprised to be honest.

So I have up to £7m to spend on a shiny new player. £7m doesn’t get you much these days in football so I had to use my initiative a little bit here by making use of the sell on clause, which i obviously have no plan on using. I searched for a player worth up to £10m with decent attributes as a DLP, but I was more concerned about getting someone defensively sound.

That search led me to Wolves Defender Conor Coady, who is also able to play in the midfield spots so can still be classed as a direct replacement.

He cost the full £7m and a 50% sell on clause. He’s got very decent all around attributes, his positioning and tackling stands out as I need him to be the shield to the centre halves. He can pass a ball to an accomplished level with his decisions ensuring he picks the correct pass the majority of times.

Coady slots in straight into that defensive midfield role then, which leaves my team looking like this:-

Ive actually played to the end of the season already so expect the next update in a day or two’s time.

As always, thanks for reading :)

Yeah, that’s an annoyingly good signing. Meh. This isn’t fun anymore. 😭

As I expected better defensively but worse offensively and hidden stat wide that'll be a bigger drop off than it appears imo. Tbf you got lucky getting him for £7m considering his value, damn game :p.

Too injury prone

I’d rather go better defensively at this stage. When the surrounding players worsen it does give me options to change his role to something else. For now though, he stays a playmaker! 😛

Season One - Part Two

I’m actually enjoying this save. It almost sucks to have to wait for you guys to vote on it otherwise I’d bang it all out in a few days. Maybe that’s why I’m enjoying it though, who knows.

So Conor Coady has miraculously found himself in the starting XI of a Bayern Munich Squad, replacing a world class Thiago at the base of the diamond. As we witnessed in the first half of the season, we were steamrolling our way through the league, but with the fixtures coming thick and fast at the business end, could we maintain our terrific form?

League:

In short, yes, yes we could. We dropped only four more points in the second half of the season as we end up unbeaten and a huge 20 points clear of second placed Dortmund. Very happy with how the team have performed all season, I’ve experimented with the team instructions on the road and I’ve found a system that consistently works. Good stuff, just another 5 titles to go!

Season History:

We actually ended up winning the whole lot in our first season, which is well above my expectations tbh. Some of the latter games were a struggle due to the fitness issues but some clever substitutions ensured we rode it out.

Manager Profile:

We lost one game all season, typically it had to be to Liverpool in the group stages of the Champions League which ended up being irrelevant but painful all the same.

Squad Appearances:

Tolisso and Lewandowski received a month long injury apiece which is why their appearances are lower than others, Alaba was either knackered or suspended, or both. Neuer is the only player to have played every game, Kimmich follows closely having missed just the one

Squad Goals:

A tie for the golden boot between our tricky winger come striker Serge Gnabry and our prolific talisman Robert Lewandowski with 30 goals apiece.

Squad Assists:

Alaba tops the Assists chart with 20 and is followed closely by Kimmich with 19. Alaba had 15 in the first update ffs, he died a horrible death by the looks of it

The Poll:

The Poll has now been reduced to ten players accordingly. Coady is not available for vote or are future new signings, just to make that crystal clear to some of you 😛

Poll Deadline:- Saturday 11th May 21:00 BST

That Poll deadline big enough for you @samhardy? 😛

Thank you all for reading, any and all comments are appreciated :)

I went Gnabry, because he’s an integral part of your team it seems especially for goals and I don’t think you can get a good replacement for the money you have

Great first season, wouldn’t worry about that Liverpool result much. 

I’ll wait this time before I vote but I’m thinking Gnabry too as I don’t think he’s valued that highly which will mean you’ll have to get lucky with a cheap striker.

All Gnabry is, is a pace whore 😛 easy enough to replace him with someone just as fast for pennies
