    I think we already have nearly all the best Welsh players out there!

    Bag of nails left otherwise so will be surprised if I do better than top half really - well - we do have some good players so maybe I can stretch for European places

    Decideinmg who to keep and seel from the other players will be key - will write up squad review over coming days where I'll need your help/input!

    Nah - Liverpool would likely be too easy a story I would have thought unless major restrictions were in place

    Might need a little break from stories and reading all of yours before I dive back in with another story

    Still plenty of legs left in this one for another season tho!

    Whatever overseas players you keep will be fresh for Cup games so hopefully you can bow out with another trophy

    Happens every time, once the title is won, the players switch off and you lose

    Bloody hell!

    I know you've dropped hints that the story was coming to an end but didn't think it would happen this soon. Did you ever win the CL? Can't remember, sorry!

    Indeed - Hope Vieira doesn't retire and VERY much looking forward to having SHEVCHEKNO with us

    Meh - Took about a minute to play and update that game - really wasn't bothered and it was the kids

    Nah - never won the CL - we've given it a decent go though considering our resources

    Probably a decent bit of life left in this given it's ODB and I'd recognise players for a few more seasons yet but winning the League again was huge for me

    I "should" be leaving the club in a fantastic position domestically - anything we do or not in Europe is a bonus

    Thought you may have stuck at it until CL is won. Never know, could win it with the Welshies

    True - we are hard pushed against Europe's best but maybe a "fresh" team playing in the cups and with experience andd maye a little luck and we could get to a final

    League is gonna be a BIG challenge!

    I'm not a regen man and few more years and it would really be at that point

    Not going to keep going until we do/do not win it either. The plan was to get the club up the leagues and competitive and introduce some WELSHies in it - and we've certainly done that thus far!

    End of Season Squad Review

    As ever, at the end of the season, I sit down with the Swans Trust (Owners) to review the season gone and any transfer business that needs doing

    Swans Trust: A fantastic season Redders and a domestic double! But no time to dwell on that! With your impending resignation and our request to play and all WELSH XI in Premier League games next year, we have a feeling a LOT of wheeling and dealing is going to be needed in a VERY busy summer!

    So – shall we get on with it?

    Redders: Indeed – very pleased with last season but gutted to exit FA Cup and then Barca just too good for us in CL. But I feel the club is in a great position as it comes to the last year of my time here

    Redders: So – Let’s take a look at the goalkeeper situation!




    Goalkeepers



    Swans Trust: Looks a brilliant position for us with quality everywhere and competition for places.

    Redders: Jamie Langfield did great and then got injured mid season. Yury Tsigalko then came in and did so well (with the formation change) that he didn’t deserve to lose his place

    Terry Rogers then is extremely talented and we recently signed him up permanently

    Swans Trust: This all sounds fine and dandy, HOWEVER, 1 glaring omission – we have NO WELSHmen! Obviously we need a quality WELSH ‘keeper to play Premier League games

    Redders: Aye – slight issue with that – there are feck all available but we’ll do what we can and get one in! (as you can see, we’ve made a few cheeky bids and Steve Vaughan seems the “best” – and he left us last year to go to Celtic where is not playing!)



    Swans Trust: Well – we hate to say this but if we are bringing in 1 (or maybe 2) WELSH keepers then we need to let Yury, Jamie or Terry go. Given that Terry Rogers is the “cheapest”, just signed a new deal and is very talented then it has to be Yury or Langfield that needs to go to free up funds to bring WELSH players in

    Redders: JAYSUS SUFFERING FECK! How am I supposed to choose between them and give them the news?!

    Swans Trust: You keep telling us you have some trusted “advisors” by the names of AMC, Ebfatz, Effiong Unmarked!, James_y, LucasGills, Mark, Samsami, Zansnake and the likego and ask them what THEY would do!











    Please let me know of any other screenies you wish to see

  14. Langfield is 31, time to move on....how bigs your transfer budget? I think you just have to get the best Welsh players possible whatever the cost. Scout some players in the Welsh under 21 side?

    Yury always seems a bit suspect to me. Admittedly he did very well for you in the league this season, but you're choosing a keeper for cups. I would sell Yury.

    Edit: I've just seen that Langfield averaged 5/10 in 2 cup matches this season, so I've changed my mind. Langfield has to go.

    Langfield looks the better keeper on att's but Yury has been with us a long time

    From this season performances - I really couldn't split them!

    We had FECK ALL in bank but now got £18m after prize money

    BTW - there are hardly any "best" Welsh players available

    U21's grim reading...........

    Aye - Yury seems to have a brain fart now and again - usually mid season and probably from playing too many games - maybe this was why having the competition and not sufering from burnout helpedhim this season

    Now you've just confused me but saying keep and sell both - wahahahahaha

    Some of those Welsh youngsters may actually be better than you think. They may very well have 'hidden talents' (high intrinsic values) that you are unaware of until you give them game time!

    I say, have faith in them and let them play 5 to 10 games in a row before you decide if they look like first team quality or not.

  19. Who’s that star R Allen? Sign him!

    That’s a small under 21 squad, guess you didn’t use maximum Database?

    Can't be doing with intrinsics mate

    1 - no idea/interest what they are (you know i'm not a tactic lover!)

    2 - we have 1 season left - this ain't no time for developing players any more

    And so it begins! Maybe best to just list all 3 and see what bids you get in, no telling whether you'd even get a bid for them if you decide on one.

    I know what you mean, never usually one for long-term save games either but depends what sort of challenge that I'm doing.

    Christ - massive shout that!

    Are you saying he's good enough to play in Cups and Champions league?!

    Granted, I could prob sell Yury and Langfield easier as they are proven and raise more cash but is Terry Rogers ready to setep up against the best in the world?!

    Listing all 3 - would that not alienate all 3 of then though? Whoever was then "not sold" - would they not be p!ssed at me and have an effect on performance in CUps and Champions League?!

    This is not what I imagined. Sell the oldest ones, play the Welsh keeper you'll buy also in the cups, keep Rogers as backup.

    But you know already what I think of those crappy pundits hanging around this story...
