Thought I'd do a different thread, rather than having one still up for a previous version(s).

I was going to do a separate thread for recommended players and all that crap, but game updates usually cover signings anyway so didn't bother.

I've just won the league and cup double with Juve, still have one game spare.

I'm delighted though, wasn't expecting to win both, but the cup is fairly easy to win if you get a kind draw (only 3 rounds before final).

Signed a defender from Ajax called Vertoghen at the start of the season, and followed that up with Douglas Costa and Masucchio in the January window.

Nedved took over as chairman about two weeks before the season ended, I'm not sure what's going to happen yet.. he has a habit of sacking managers so I've read, so I'll see what happens at the end of the season!

The new youth intake of players is really good, you can choose who joins you, rather than getting lumped with loads of crap all at once.

The three best ones I signed who have amazing potential, all got long term injuries. :doh:

I'm 16 games in to the league season. It's not going to well. After the charity shield I went 22 games without losing but picking up to many draws in the champions league. I've now lost 3 in a row. 1 in the champions league and 2 in the league.

I'm top of the league by a point but out of the champions league in the group stages. I signed Bale but he's yet to play a game for me. Transfer went through after the squad registration finished. :doh:

I'm surprised the transfer didn't cancel rather than follow on 'till Jan.

At least you've got a challenge though!

Signing players for Juve is proving difficult, I've been trying to avoid signing I've made on last year's, I'd feel like I was cheating.

So far bought Muniain for £22m, was desperate for a striker. Apart from that, my only other signings have been a few youngsters with decent potential. Main target now is a full back, especially a left one.

Bale cost me £60m - I went at 30, they come back with 82 I went with 50 they come back at 71 so i went 60 and got accepted.

I knew I was paying over the top but really wanted an awesome signing.

£60m :doh: I don't get why people pay that much for players!

For a similar price, I've bought Muniain, Jose Angel (LB), and ter Stegen (GK).. the latter looks to be one of the best goalkeepers on the game.

Edit: I think we're the only ones to have this. :lol:

I haven't even got to play him yet apart from in the 3 league cup ties. I knocked out Chelsea 6-0 Arsenal 4-0 and Sunderland 2-1 AET now it's me and 3 championship sides left.

I wouldn't normally pay so much but it's my first file and I panicked buyed a left back/left winger.

I've got it installed, but not played it yet. I've not had time to play it at all yet though so pass on the changes.

I've just finished my first season as I haven't really had much time to play it.

I won the league but i'm not happy with the season. I finished 1st by 13 points and had the league rapped up by mid-april. I also won the league cup. However I was knocked out of the champions league in the group stages and then knocked out of the UEFA Cup in the second round. I was knocked out of the FA Cup in the 4th round by Chelsea throwing away a 2 goal lead.

Looking forward to the off-season going to remove some of the deadwood. Valencia is off. Diouf Owen Giggs will also leave. Haven't decided if Rio and Macheda will get another season or not. Rio

Scouts have brought back a couple of 18 yr olds that look decent. I've raided Bayern for 2 youngsters.

Team doesn't really need anything other than a LB but i've got Smalling and Jones both comfortable playing there now.

Bale was the leagues best player averaging 7.9 in the 19 games he played.

Just finished my second season with Juve.

Won the league on 84 points (improvement on 80 last year), I should've pissed the league but I had a shocking run of results, and then some sketchy defeats. Two points behind Inter Milan with five games left, won 2-0 at their place going a point clear. :eek: Then we both won every game afterwards up until the last day, I won 6-1 at Bologna and they drew at home v Siena (feeder club :cool:). Won it by three points.

CL campaign went better than expected, reached the semis and got hammered by Lyon 4-0 in first leg, beat them at home 2-1.. but overall was pleased.

Got beat by Inter in the Italian Cup in one of the earlier rounds.

I'm not enjoying this team at all, I think it's very average.. hopefully my European ranking will go up a few positions, and I can get interest from better players.

Juve's signings for third season. :eek:

DR - Kyle Walker - http://img526.imageshack.us/img526/152/walkerk.jpg
DM - Jack Rodwell - http://img694.imageshack.us/img694/7558/rodwellx.jpg
AML - James Rodríguez - http://img830.imageshack.us/img830/1847/rodriguezv.jpg
ST - Neymar - http://img510.imageshack.us/img510/7335/neymaryd.jpg

Lesser signings:

MC - Ekdal - http://img209.imageshack.us/img209/1448/ekdal.jpg
MC - Giovinco - http://img511.imageshack.us/img511/7038/giovinco.jpg
MC - Timmer - http://img43.imageshack.us/img43/4049/timmer.jpg (regen but looks very good)

Don't usually spend that much on a player (Neymar), but never had him before and the opportunity was there so why not. :D

Needless to say my squad is now fairly big, especially in the middle. Trying to flog some. :mad:

Edit: Also got Yannis Tafer on loan for the season, backup striker.

Ouch. Ten injuries is very unlucky, and they all look like first teamers more or less.
