Don't need stadium upgrades. Just focus on getting young, inexpensive players and sign them to 5 year contracts. Sell your old, expensive players. You can resign old players but make sure that you offer them lower salaries. You can do this my offering long term contracts. For example, a 32 yr old player is currently making 40,000, you can try resigning him to a 4 year contract worth 38,000 or less.
