Five FM17 bargain buys to consider for your Southampton save

So, you’ve opted to cope with the turmoil of being Southampton’s manager?

Well, that’s a nice decision. You can try and fend off the flirtatious advances of the Premier League big boys and become a realistic challenger in your own right. It is a tantalising prospect; defying the historical order of English football to turn one of the bullied little’uns of the transfers market into a real force to be reckoned with.

To start with, you’ll need to find a way to compete without having to go toe to toe with some of the nation’s strongest clubs. Shopping around, hunting for a bargain can take a fair bit of time, mind. The other alternative is to really, really throw everything you’ve got into the academy basket – which could work rather nicely.

Whatever happens, make sure you spend a fair bit of cash in the first season and have a squad that you feel can really take on the best in the business.

How you do that is down to you, of course, but a little pointer or two never hurt anyone…
