I decided to cash in on Sanchez and Ozil with them both refusing to sign new contracts £122 million was just to much to miss out on. This gives me a huge war chest of cash to play with. Coquelin didn't fit in tactically (my midfielders must all be great passers, playmaker type players). Mertesacker went in January as he hardly played with Chambers and Holding overtaking him in the pecking order. Wilshire will be soon moving on free when his contract finishes. I had inherited a massive squad so I didn't feel I needed to purchase any players in my first season.
English Premier Division
We smashed the title completing another unbeaten season. Arsenal invincibles MK 2. 106 points 108 goals not a bad start.
I like to play my reserves and blood youth players in cup games. Knocked out in the third round but great experience for the young lads.
Fifth round exit again blooded youngsters in the FA cup.
My reserves/youth players got us all the way to the final the highlight being my B team thrashing AC Milan 6-0 over 2 legs. In the final it might seem harsh but I played a full strength side, it is a Continental Cup after all.
Highest average rating in the league. Won all player awards.
This was my go to eleven when fit. They played some great football at times, top stuff.
Lots of money in the Gunners coffers.
My Managerial To Do List
First things first I've got a lot of players contracts to renew as you can see by the screen shot below.
I'm happy for Cazorla to leave his attributes have taken a serious nose dive. Cech , Ospina, Walcott and the multi award winning Welbeck are all refusing to negotiate new deals at this time. Been here before. Anybody else found so many players refusing to sign new deals? On previous games I've had maybe the odd player but not most players. Maybe its the current crop of players on this Arsenal save. I mean come on the Gunners are back at the top back In the Champions League, sign on the dotted line. Unlike last summer I don't need the cash so maybe I'll risk holding onto these experienced players for 1 more season.
Central Midfield Advanced Playmakers is where my squads looking thin so a couple of potential world class youngsters here is my transfer priority.
