Got Man City right up my arsecrack, 4 points behind. Have league cup semi final with them, ok fine, put out a team of kids as I dont care about it and wanted to rest my first teamers. lose 1-0, not bad since they played full strength. Suddenly a sinking feeling appears. Didn't check the fixtures, was actually a league game, carling cup game up next.
Mourinho is back at the Bridge! After leaving Madrid in 2015 to join City. Being sacked before completing a full season having won the mighty carling cup already. He then joined Arsenal a few months later and gets before a full season yet again He's been hired over the summer. Also Fernando Torres have been let go by Chelsea He is 33 but he still has 17 finishing 12 acceleration 14 agility.
Also like to know what you guys do when your rivals are making an offer for a potential wonderkid and you already have that position covered? I never used to take noticed and let them be but just the past week i saw Arsenal bid 2.3m for a centerback from Inter only aged 17 i decided to bid 5m which resulted in the inter board rejecting arsenal offer and accepting mine. I simply just walk around from negotiations :P
Arsenal have hired Mick McCarthy and are languishing in 16th after 9 games.
Meanwhile, Jordan Henderson scored a 40 yard freekick vs City in the league cup.
Thats probably the farthest anyone has scored from on my FM.
Gerrard has announced his intention to retire.
He still has rather good stats for a 37 year old though I'll try and persuade him to stay in it for another season or two. Only to get him the Oldest Player in the league record.
