That represents a £19m profit for the summer window. After hassling Napoli for several of their players all summer Jorginho was allowed to go on the transfer list a month into the start of the season, and I’ve now got a £30m deal in place for January, which is significantly less than I bid in the summer. @Burgundy I bid up to almost £50m for Diawara but they just would not bloody let him go.
I’m quite pleased with my start. After ten league games I’m in second place, 2 points behind Liverpool having won 7 games and drawn 3. The draws were away to Leicester (2-2) and then 1-1 both times when Man U and Spurs came to visit the Emirates. I led in all 3 matches and really should have won at least 2 of them. Need defensive reinforcements because I’m really leaky at the back.
The second game of the season was definitely the highlight so far.
