Carrick's there purely for composure and experience. A young side could easily buckle under the atmosphere at Gala.
Observation: Rafael's composure and control is just fantastic. From before where he looked constantly fired up and on the edge, now he looks composed and incredibly mature. He's...
Looks like we might have a new left-back in the name of Alexander Buttner. Anyone know anything about him?
Apparent fee of £3.9mill. So hardly a huge risk. And at least provides some cover for Patrice.
I think we'll actually be ok in CM. I'm not completely comfortable with it's longevity/flexibility. But we do have quite a few players that can/do play there.

I love how, according to themselves and their fans, Barcelona are never actually "beaten" or the opposition never actually "win". It's always "we lost it", "we didn't win", "we didn't do this... or that...". I know it all means the same thing, but the wording speaks for a lot. Whether that's a...
So finally, it's released.
Decided to go with the Premiership, and we're pretty good. Not sure if title winning just yet, but definitely the potential.
The reason for going for the Prem was basically just to have some fun with this game. We're not going to be playing with...
