In career mode in FIFA 12, what factors determine a club's transfer strategy (e.g. whether they are a "buying" or "selling" club)?
I'm playing a career as a virtual pro but not playing as a manager. I'm playing for Liverpool, but in the course of 3 transfer windows they've sold off 6 or so star players (Suarez, Carroll, Reina, Johnson, Agger, Downing for those who are interested) without buying a single player. It's so completely unrealistic that it's really ruined the experience for me. I'm wondering if there are any factors that I have control over that I could change to make sure it doesn't happen again.
I realise I could just become the manager and then have (almost) complete control over transfers, but I would rather avoid all the minutia and just focus on playing.
