  1. Re: Gold Championship 9 - Match reports / Transfers thread Inside the El Madrigal Well, well, well... It's been a very exciting week for the former European semi-finalists. First of all the amazing Spanish club announced the most controversial sale ever in the club's history. Silky Argentine Juan Roman Riquelme left the club for another rival- Athletico Madrid In return the Yellow Submarines received 3.6 million and Portugese playmaker Simao and also the undefeatable centre back- Fabiano Eller. Riquelme had been refusing to play at the club because he did not approve of t

  2. The SoccerManager Guide to Football/Soccer. By Sir (Gavin) Metz The information found about the positions in soccer can also be found on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soccer_positions. The picture is also found there (link cited below). The picture contains extra positions that are not in SM (SoccerManager), but it still works for the teaching aspect. I have summarized and placed my own opinion into each article for the positions, and have created my own views for how to counter formations. That information is found after the Position Definitions. Please feel free to voice your own opinion,

  4. Re: English Championship 1 Dave Leigh's view from the touchline. This is the first of an irregular appraisal of EC1. Very flattering comments from Mr Mohr. I am suprised that his Sheffield United has slipped out of the running for promotion as he signed some very good players. Hopefully he may make a spurt as the final hurdle to get in the top three but it is a very big ask. I feel next season with a couple of good signings he will be there or thereabouts. He recently tried to take Lucas Neill on loan, myself and the player were happy with the offer but for some reason, our chairman in

  5. Re: The Leamington Invitational Official Thread Two on the Trot for Posh! 3 - 2 Posh recorded their second straight win with this 3-2 victory over a determined Grays Athletic. Gerard Pique sent the home fans wild after hitting the back of the net from 30 yards, just after 7 minutes. Robert Acquafresca doubled the lead with his 3rd goal of the season, after scoring from a tight angle, the ball took a deflection, but he will claim it. 2-0 after 31 minutes, with Posh dominating the game looked all but over, but after Cudicini parried away a long range shot, Santos Weldon tapped it i

  6. As we know WC2 has a very large community of us forumers, yet it is slowly going down. Back in late 2006 and early 2007 , had you went on to try to fond a team in WC2, there was none available unless you stayed awake till three in the morning. Now, there are a number of teams unmanaged, EC3 used to be a massive forumer setup but since Leamington Steve stopped making the newspaper for it, everybody left. Tommorow at 5 o'clock there will probably be a World Championship created. It would be quite cool if us forumers kind of 'took over' that setup and made it into the newer and better version of

    Franky Lampard

    Re: Franky Lampard Chelsea have been not as good since last season so I don't see how every player deserves a rise. They are still much, much better then Arsenal and Man U according to SM which isn't right. Lampard- stay 96 SWP- Stay 89 Essien: Up to 96 A.Cole: Down to 91 (One above Clichy seems fair) Carvalho: Up to 95 Beletti: Up to 90 Fereira: Up to 89 Sheva: Down to 90 Ballack: Down to 91 J.Cole: 93 (Englands best performer) Makalele: Down to 91 This reflects the fact that they have been underachieving for over a year now compared to the previous Chelsea.

Even though I wanted to do it Nov. 1 to allow for people to join, I didn't expect it to be so popular of a set up . I don't want to hold people back or annoy them if they'd rather have it start earlier, like Monday. Let me know. I'll PM everyone with the official date on Sunday. Go Stuttgart this weekend!

Practically a full house at Broadfield, witnessed Tony Baldo's first game in charge at Crawley Town end in a home win. Throughout the first half, Crawley were the better side but somehow went in at half time 0-0. Paul Thame's Bristol Rovers then created a few chances themselves in the second half, gaining more confidence in their attack. However, on the 81st minute Giampaolo Pazzini used blistering pace and strength to enter the box and fire home confidently. Final Score 1-0. (Debutant/MOM - Pazzini
