FM16 Do It Better - Aston Villa

Recommended Posts

None of you signed Kristoffer Ajer? Especially if you are thinking long term. Probably not if you just do the one season challenge.


I think Cubas is better. A little bit more money but worth it overall in my opinion.

Right, first season done! Went pretty well all in all. Managed to start the overhaul of the squad and somehow managed to win the FA Cup (possibly having the easiest run to the final in history helped) securing european football meaning we have a decent £47m transfer budget for the coming season.


Final league table:




We had a pretty good record against the teams above us but irritatingly losing twice to Swansea, Everton, Spurs and Man Utd meant we didn't quite finish as high as i would have dreamt. However, finishing 8th is nothing to be scoffed at.


Second Half of the Season Results:






Squad Performances:





Some really impressive performances overall and a few players played themselves into my short term plans at least. The standout from this season, Ayew, was much better up top than I thought he would be to be honest; he's still going to be replaced next season but good to know he's a capable second choice.


Quite excited about next season to be honest!

Just finished January; currently sitting 1 point clear at the top of the league. I have, however, spent an inordinate amount of money this season. My board just kept giving me more and more so I've really managed to bring in some top quality players. I always focus on youth with my transfers so this team is only going to get better the more seasons I play.






Starting XI:

Finished 2nd! 4 points off 1st after losing to Chelsea, the champions, on the second last day of the season. Champions league to come next season!


In preparation for the new season, transfers less a plenty than the last few seasons but still some decent money spent!




Leaving my starting XI going into the new season looking like:

    • The appeal doesn't go to the EFL, it goes to an independent board.
    • You couldn't really legislate for Hugill scoring a worldy. That said even though we were crap and sloppy, but we should've got a point out of it.
    • The last section is the exact reason Wigan won't win their appeal. The EFL simply refuse to acknowledge that their set of tests is not fit for purpose. They even then mention another case where that was evident (Bury).
    • The owners haven't massively overspent and run the club into the ground. From what I have seen Wigan is/are a fairly well run club in terms of finances (in a football sense anyway). But the owners have literally used the club for some very murky reason. They sold the club to a new owner (a fund) that the old owner was the majority shareholder in. Then immediately installed a new majority shareholder to the fund that now own Wigan. That shareholder bizarrely has no online footprint at all, other than everything related to him owning Wigan. This man then on the exact same day he has acquired the club has placed it in administration. It is that reason that Wigan are appealing the decision. All of the above of course was signed off by the EFL themselves. Which opens a whole new can of worms.
    • https://www.efl.com/news/2020/july/efl-update-wigan-athletic/   Here is the latest statement by the EFL on the Wigan situation. I agree with a lot of what they say up until they start trying to defend their fit and proper test.
