Football Manager 2017

Still doing well in my first Prem season. Currently fifth in the Prem after 28 games and just knocked out City in the fifth round of the FA Cup. Assombalonga is top scorer in the Prem with 21 goals and Christie has the highest average ratings on 7.43 and has 11 assists. Gibson has won the most important tackles.


Think I've found out that a narrow 4-3-3 and attacking direct play is the way to go. I've scored 53 goals which is only bettered by ***nals 61. I've conceded 39 which is about average for the Prem. Just brought in Ruben Semedo in January to replace Ayala who is just too slow. In the summer I'll be looking for a new keeper and a striker to replace either Traore or Braithwaite. He'll have to be quick though as my front three thrive on that winning plenty of long balls and going to the byline to cross for either of the other two in the box.

    • 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.
    • Apologies when I said 1/4 of the creditors, I was meaning 25p out of the £. I should have made that clearer. In terms of our situation in 1986 I'm not too well versed with the details (as it was before my time). But I'm pretty sure we were going into Liquidation rather than administration.  I also imagine that the EFL regulations/rules have been updated since 1986.
