    Might go Arsenal so I can have the enjoyment of releasing Arshavin.

    Had an odd one in a game today.

    Opposition defender goes in hard on my player in first 90 seconds of the game, injuring himself in the process.

    Delay as he's carried off then treated then comes back on to be shown a red card after 5 minutes of the game.

    Still only got 2 minutes injury time in the first half.

    Seeing as being to ill to go to lectures does not equate to being too ill to play FM, I have decided to start a new game with Brentford.

    3 games played and 3 games won so far. Leon Legge top scorer with 3 goals and has recently signed a contract extension. Things going well so far.

    Really want to start a new game, preferably with West Ham or someone similar, but can't bring myself to do it without the new patch.

    Well, seeing as I'm now in the run up to exams/revision, it's of course the perfect time for me to become heavily involved in football manager again.

    Have started a new game with Atletico Madrid, which has actually been harder than I anticipated. First season resulted in a 4th place finish, which was pretty good going seeing as Arda Tura, Reyes and Juanfran all missed most of the season through injury. Fortunately Diego, Falcao and Simone Pepe (on loan) managed to secure some important results single-handedly and dragged me through the mire. Defence was pretty poor all throughout the year. Despite Rafael Toloi (2m) impressing and Carlos Kameni (5m) also impressing, the defence was largely cack and leaked far too many stupid goals and seemed to be unable to defend set pieces at all.

    Second season promises to be a tough ask, was given only 2m transfer funds (which has been spent poaching a few 16 year olds from France). Diego and Pepe both have left the club and I wasn't able to renegotiate a loan deal for either of them to return, meaning that Merida, Koke and Raul Garcia have had to take on the responsibility of providing the team's attacking/creative threat (bit dire).

    Champions League campaign is as good as over after losing my first 3 matches (including a 3-0 away defeat to FC Copenhagen, awful) and other results meaning that my only hope of qualification is if Inter lose at home to both Ajax and Copenhagen. Nevertheless, the league form has been good, and am in 3rd place with a 3 point gap over Sevilla and a game in hand.

    Have suddenly been provided with 20m transfer funds, 10m of which has been spent on bringing in Sokratis Papastathopoulos from Genoa to bolster a defence which is still far too leaky (Silvio and David Godin in danger of being sold if they do not drastically improve), also had a bid of 8m for Georgino Wijnaldum accepted, but after I refused to meet his ridiculous wage demands he opted to join Schalke before I could renegotiate a deal. Very annoying.

    So yes, any suggestions for an attacking midfielder who would be available for around the 8-10m mark? Basically has to be an EU national and ideally can play on the right a bit as well as in the hole.

    Sotiris Ninis was cheaper.

    Already feeling this may not have been the best move.

    Hmm, think my game is glitching pretty badly. Just saw this written on Jose Reyes' profile:

    "Touted as the next Marcos Senna".

    Hmmm.

    Also I've ****ing had enough of Antonio Lopez, he's played in 22 games of the season so far, and been booked in 18 of them, and sent off on 4 occasions.

    Have never had a player with such a poor disciplinary record in all my time of playing manager games. So annoying, because he's become a total liability. This is made worse by the fact that the team plays a great deal better (offensively anyway) when he's in the side. Don't know what I can do about this, granted I play with hard tackling, but none of the rest of the team have this issue. Repeatedly fining him doesn't seem to have done the trick either.

    Playing a stupidly high line and a recently changing to a 2-3-4-1 formation with Napoli is proving fun, lost 5-4 to Arsenal and ten destroyed MilN 4-1. One point behind Inter at mid point n the season, shame the game has not realised they are crap.

    Fantastically strong end to the season. Finished in 3rd comfortably, and won the UEFA Cup after being 2-0 down at half-time to Olympiakos.

    Dangerously reliant on Falcao though, he's scored about 65% of my goals...And now the two Manchester Clubs are circling ominously... Hopefully a 40m price tag will shoo them away.

    End of the season has seen a number of players leave, Diego Costa and Tiago have both been released. Juanfran, Gabi and Miranda have all been sold.

    Javi Garcia and Shinji Kagawa are the first two signings of the summer. Went after Douglas Costa and Azipilicueta, but they joined Milan and Real Madrid respectively. Will now turn my attention to finding one more quality midfielder before the start of the season. That and the emergence of various young players stolen from PSV ought to make the squad strong enough to achieve 3rd place again and a decent run in the Champions League.

    I hate this game sometimes, swear it deliberately winds you up at times, 5 points clear with 5 games to go and then lose to 3 lowly sides in a row, a couple of red cards, about 70% possession and about 1245394484384 missed chances in the process. Beyond angry.
