    Player development depends on a lot of things including:
    * game time;
    * position / role / formation;
    * training & quality of training to suit.

    Just finished my second season with Lyon. Far too easy, won the league and cup doubles in both seasons. Failed to get past the first round of knockout stages in the CL though, as i was drawn against Madrid and then United. Not going to renew my contract, even though i've built a nice squad with the likes of Nasri, Hamsik, Makoun, Menez and Gouffran.

    Never say die attitude.

    Losing 2-0 to 2nd place man utd come back to win 3-2. A ten minute hat-trick by Vela.

    GET IN MY SON!!!!!!!!!

    (might even move up to 5th now) :(

    I cant get out of 5th in my game, everytime i get into 4th or 3rd my best players get injured and i start losing/drawing again. So its like mid-Febuary and Im in 5th, but just 4 points out of 2nd, but i just went out of the Coppa Italia to Fiorentina, and just lost to Genoa in the league, before that I was 15 matches unbeaten.

    Left my reign at Lyon after two seasons, and after being offered both the Sp**s and Birmingham jobs, Benitez has gone to Lyon and Liverpool came in for me. Couldn't say no really. Squad isn't too different really besides Huntelaar and Moutinho being there.

    I just sold Eboue to Tottenham for £ 12.7 million. :lol:

    This one of the few times Ive been paid a high amount for my players, how do you guys manage to get high deals for your players? Most of the time Im forced to sell them at face value or slighly less than that. For example, I had to sell Senderos for £ 3.4 million when hes really worth about £ 6 million and that effectively screwed up my transfer plans.

    Roma, so far I've had De Rossi and Aquilani both out 6 months, and Berbatov out 5,Totti out 3 1/2, along with frequent 1-2 months out for my other starters. Its either bad luck or my physios are monkeys.

    The first things i do whenever i start any Arsenal game (and i do it alot) is:
    -Sell Senderos for 4-5mil, Gilberto for 5, Flamini for 5, Almunia for 3, Lehmann for 1, and any youngsters who i think aren't good enough for the team (Dunne, Gilbert, Gibbs..etc) for 500k-1mil.
    -Sack 3 pathetic coaches i have (i don't remember who but they're bad).
    -sign 4 new coaches.
    -sign Agliardi (7mil) or Lloris (12mil).
    -import my training stuff from a long time ago as well as my favourite tactics.

    Then i'm good to go. I sign random players for random prices after that depending on how i'm feeling.

    Btw don't you already get 65mil from the board at the beginning of the game? Isn't that good enough.

    Keep Senderos and Flamini for a season max, then you can sell them for higher prices. I've sold Senderos for 15m and Flamini for 10m.

    I just finished my second season at Roma, finished 5th again in the league, though this time I was just 8 points out of first. It was a little frustrating finishing 5th though because I was 2nd and 3rd for most of the year, but in the end of March into April I went on a horrible run, and I just couldnt bounce back. Ive already made some new signings which should help, and have some young players coming into the first team so hopefully with a better/deeper squad I can at least break into the top 4, maybe make a run at winning the league.

    Just won the World Cup with Russia. I proceeded to apply for 7 jobs, Argentina, Brazil, France, Italy, England, Paraguay, Ivory Coast and all of them wants to employ me. :D

    Understandably so though, as I am top of the Hall of Fame list. I am in 2014. My Arsenal is unbeaten in 62 games now.
