[edit] Football Manager Budgets

[edit] 2008

Transfer Budget can be between: 10.5 million and 22 million

In my opinion you should choose the option that means you tell the board that you will definetely avoid releagtion if im right that would give you a budget of 13.25 million which is more than enough to avoid relegation.

[edit] Recommended Players to Buy and Sell

[edit] Buy

People on Neoseeker have recommended when playing as Wigan.

Joe Ledley - You would probably need about 4.5Million to buy this player although when you bid in this region the chairman usually accepts the bid, his wages arn't that much and premiership clubs should easily afford his wages.

David Marshall - In my opinion he is a very underrated keeper especially with his performance with Celtic against barcelona would defenitely be a good back-up for kirkland and could handle the premiership if called upon.

John Joe O'toole - good young prospect if signed at start of game he can be bought for a cheap price.

Celso Borges - He is a good young attacking midfielder, that you can get for quite cheap at the start of the game, probably around 400k would be needed and his wages would probably be around £1000 a week.

If you get theses buys then there will also be a possibility that you could get rid of michael brown as he probably wouldn't get a game therefore he would eat up wage.
