Hmm. I did fine with Depor in my first season. Transfer targets are limited obviously, so I picked up Van der Meyde on a free transfer and that was it. In the end I ended up 4th in La Liga. Adrian was the star of the show. He scored 17 goals in 35 appearances. Not bad.
The next season I had a little money to play around with (around 6 mill) so I brought in a striker and a right midfielder. I was in Europe that season , so with a small squad my league form dipped abit and I ended up 6th (which is still good) but I actually reached two major finals: The Spanish Cup final and the Champions League final! I lost both but still an accomplishment none the less.
I've now just started my third season and as a result of the finals I reached, I had a good 16 mill to play around with so brought quite a few new players in. Depor are now amongst the favourites to win La Liga in my world.
Impossible is nothing my friend.
