  1. I've floated this idea around with some forumers and have decided to post. I hope this is the correct section, it seems like general assistance. I wanted to start a thread on how much managers can eventually expect to realise when they sell their 80+ rated players to unmanaged teams. Please note this post relates to World Championships only as values seem a little lower in the English championships. I've been keeping info since the transfer rules changed and i've observed that many managers are selling players too cheaply by accepting the first bid and not waiting until they get a better A

  2. My first attempt..Hope everyone would find them useful 1) Sebastian Giovinco (Empoli) The 20-year-old attacking-midfielder is regarded as one of the brightest young talents in Europe. Skilful, fast, with great vision and technical ability, many have labelled Giovinco as the ‘Italian Messi’. Giovinco is on loan at Empoli from Juventus but many believe he is the Bianconeri’s natural heir to Alessandro Del Piero. Capello: Giovinco Is A Great Talent Ex Roma and Milan Coach Fabio Capello has heaped praise on young Empoli playmaker Sebastian Giovinco but says it is wrong to compare the pla

  3. Re: Gold Championship 7 Signing players who are rated ninety and above has become almost impossible, fortunately I managed to sign Klose within the last week of ‘Season 1’. If it were not for that transfer, I would not have been able to make a single ‘pre-season’ signing that would realistically improve my first team squad; and I know that many other players in this league are in the same situation and feel equally as frustrated at the moment. It’s a real pity because ‘Season 1’ was a pleasure to be apart of. Being a ‘Gold Championship’ we expect it to be difficult to sign players af

  4. 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,

    Stephane Ruffier

    21 year old Monaco keeper has broken into the Monaco team replacing Flavio Roma who is injured. He has made 4 starts this season and he is currently rated 74 and can be bought for 170k. I dont know if he has managed to cement a place in their starting 11 but the 4 starts warrants an increase to around the 80 mark. Ruffier has also been called up to the French Under 21 squad. Judging by this he deserves an increase but to what rating I don't know as I havent seen his performances. What do you guys think?

  6. First of all I will start by admitting that I am a Noobie to Soccermanager and the whole forum thing, so I would ask you all to treat me gently and take this thread in the spirit in which it is intended, and not as an attempt by me to flame other forum users. All I am doing is making an observation in the hope that many people read it and just bear it in mind before posting certain threads. So here goes........... My observation lies in the Player help and discussion threads. They certainly have their place in the game, which I feel is to help players with small clubs and budgets to find out

    Moustapha Bayal Sall

    Search for Bayal Sall if looking in the database. Plays for a very youthful and talented Saint-Etienne squad which has lots of young highly rated players. The squads first 11 average out at about 86/87. Bayal Sall has played in 12 out of SE's 13 games, 10 as starts and twice as a sub. Only 4 SE players have clocked up more time than him this season as he has clocked up 941minutes. He is 21 years old and currently rated 80. He also played for senegal against mozambique on the 2nd of september (not sure if this was national team or u21/23s.) Freddy Guarin plays for SE and he has played only

    Some suggestions

    For a start, I would like to apologise if these suggestions were previously made or already in practise. 1) Prize money to be awarded to teams that reach the semi-finals of cup tournaments and not just the teams that get to the final. An example would be the winner gets 10m and the runner-up 5m. The 2 other teams that made the semi-finals would get 2m. Reason for this being that prizes of players have increased alot compared to previously, so increment of prize money or more distribution would go in line with that. 2) Allowance to negotiate sponsorship deals with the sponsor, merchandise sp

Herby's lads got off to a flyer as new signing PETRIC found the back of the net with Sheffield's first attacking raid on the Cottager's goal due to some poor communication at the back.

  12. Re: Gold Championship 7 Not the most exciting of signings, but Zaragoza are just building up the squad in areas they struggled with last season, slowly. A few days ago, Nikola Pokrivac joined, a solid back up defender and defensive midfielder. He joined from unmanaged Dinamo Zagreb for £5.6 million. And just minutes ago, as George alerted Nathan Kirby to the unmanaged Villarreal side, Nathan took over and agreed to sell Jose Enrique to Zaragoza. He should now join for £7.5 million. Zaragoza also agreed to play Villarreal in a friendly this Friday. George said "I appreciate the

    I can make you money!

    Re: I can make you money! This is one of these points where a lot are going to agree and a lot are going to disagree but I'm the latter. The whole point of playing the game is to use your managerial skills, and this in turn, involves looking after your finances and keeping your squad at a sufficient size that doesnt break the bank with wages. Although I understand what you are saying because for smaller clubs it is a lot harder to gain a decent amount of revenue PLUS more on top to spend on new players, I dont think purchasing money is the way to go it sort of defeats the object of the game

    Dudes Help Me Now!!!

    Re: Dudes Help Me Now!!! true m8, but you have to try and get what's best for you and seem's as though it's the other guy who want's the player..... plus i don't think many manager's would swap benzema the way he's playing at the moment,there's maybe a chance he will be level with van persie soon so i don't think it's a clever deal to start with.also, would the arsenal chairman even let him swap him considering benzema's rating at the moment?

    Dudes Help Me Now!!!

    Re: Dudes Help Me Now!!! Well that could be another possibility if you don't want to sell and you want to get the other players; but that would only happen if the other manager isn't well informed and doesn't know that Ben Arfa and Benzema will be rising soon.

  22. Re: Survivor Setup Official Thread On paper the favourites would have to have been Barcelona but the beauty of the cup is the underdogs can always provide a surprise. This was one such time and although it took penalties to get a winner it was a shock result. Barcelona are going strong in the league and RobbieM has inherited and added too to make a quality side. Fenerbache have taken a chance on relative unknown Johann Mendez who has only a couple of games under him as Fenerbache boss. Sanli Tuncay gave Fenerbache the lead before half time finishing off a slick finishing move to send

The new manager had observed from the stands today during Fenerbahce's win over Real Madrid and has been quite impressed with the side. He states that he hopes that he will help the side achieve success and hope to do it as soon as next week in the Cup Final against the Catalans. He states that it would be a very tough match against the leaders and he is looking forward to that. Before that though, the new manager has to face tough opposition in the form of

  27. Re: i need some help, I cant get this player The age and value of Maldini is such that the amount you have bid is very, very high, isn't it? You said first time that it was the manager of your team that was unhappy. If that is actually the case that is a bug as you are the manager and that should never appear. If it was actually the chairman, as you said was the case the second time, then it will be due to the fact you are offering too much. Maldini is 39 years old and valued at £257k. Why would you want to pay so much for him? The chairman often acts for the clubs protection as it would
