Alright, here's my Year 4 Update, starting with the end of season 3: Championship Season:
I really struggled a bit starting out with my team and fell below 10th for quite a bit. I think it had to do with so many game and the fact I was prioritizing Europa League over normal League play. After that, I was able to go on a solid run and Derby County and Watford both sold their top goal scorers in the Winter window. That allowed me to play a lot of catch up as my schedule got easier to manage. As I caught up, I still couldn't beat Derby County (lost both on a combined score of 6-2) and was only able to draw Crystal Palace, but I got lucky enough to be playing for a spot in automatic promotion on the very last game of the season against Watford. It was a 3 way tie for 1st place, and I won the game 2-1. Off to the Premiership as Watford and Crystal Palace ended up the other two teams promoted.
My Europa League stay ended short in the Knockout Stage where I lost 4-2 to Sporting CP. I made $2 million for winning the group stage though.
I once again went to the FA Cup Final where I lost to Chelsea 2-0. Premiership Season:
Starting out, I was picked to finish 20th in the league this season. Awesome.
Was given a $16 million transfer budget with $80k/wage budget. So as with all clubs with sudden new money, I spent myself to the point where I may be forced into consolidation. Transfer Window: Starting with the Winter Window of Year 3:
Diego Poyet (West Ham) - 22 yo, 71 rated CDM for 400k. Last year of contract.
Bobby Wood - 24 yo, 69 ST signed on a free transfer.
Stephen Arthurworrey - 23 yo, 69 CB signed on free transfer.
Maxime Dupe - My starting GK sold to Aberdeen for 2 million.

Ben Chilwell - 1 year loan from Leiceister with a $1.2 million buyout.
Kingsley Coman - 1 year loan from Juve with $1.3 million buyout.
Krystian Bielek - 1 year loan from Arsenal with a $600k buyout. Summer Window of Year 4:

Steven Berjwin - 21 yo, 76 rated LW from PSV for $6 million and $35k wage.
