  1. New season is just a couple of months away and we shall have three British drivers this year, with 24 year old Scot Paul Di Resta being named one of Force India's drivers. None of the top 4 teams have made any changes, whilst Renault are hoping to be more competitive this year. Expect the same sort of names as last year to contend both Championships. All teams but Hispania have confirmd both drivers. The new drivers this year are Di Resta, Maldonado, Perez and D'Ambrosio whilst Karthikeyan returns to the sport after five years out. Senna, Yamamoto, Hulkenberg and Di Grassi have all been dropped. Kubica sits out after a rallying accident with Heidfeld stepping in. Luizzi is expected to be named Hispania's second driver. Teams and Drivers: NB: Robert Kubica will sit out at least the start of the season due to a major Rallying accident. He is not expected to be back for the rest of the season. Nick Heidfeld will take his place.

  2. Name: Cenk Tosun Place of Birth: Wetzlar, Germany Nationality: Turkish Age: 19 (21.07.1991) Position: Forward Club: Gaziantepspor Number: 23 Cenk Tosun (pronounced Chenk Towsun) is a striker currently playing in the Turkish Super League for high flyers Gaziantepspor. Born in Germany to Turkish immigrants, he spent his youth career playing for Praunheim and Raunheim, before being scouted by Eintracht Frankfurt. Cenk spent two seasons playing in the reserves before being promoted to the first team, he only however made one appearance during the 2009/10 season. 2010/11 would be Cenk’s most productive season so far in his short career, where he scored 11 goals in just 13 appearances for the Frankfurt B team. His impressive form for the reserve side however did not go unnoticed, as he was signed in the January transfer window by Gaziantepspor. Due to him feeling his chances were limited at the German side, he rejected a 3 year extension to his contract and opted to join the Turkish side. On the 6th of February Cenk made his first appearance for his new club, and played the whole 90minutes. Since then he has started the last 8 games, and scored an impressive 7 goals. Again, his brilliant goalscoring form has not gone unnoticed, as Guus Hiddink and the Turkish Football Association have acted quick to persuade him to switch allegiances, and represent Turkey at International level also. This is what he had to say afterwards; “I had a meeting with Guus Hiddink and his assistant Oguz Cetin in Istanbul. They made me the offer and I was really excited about it."I was absolutely shaking when they first suggested it because playing for my country was something I have dreamed of since childhood."I wasn't expecting it to go this well. My team-mates have helped me adapt quickly to the team and coach Tolunay Kafkas has had no hesitation in using me from the start," Before deciding to play for the Turkish National team, Cenk had represented Germany at almost all youth levels, scoring 14 goals in 26apperances. Cenk has also been named in the squad to face Austria in a European Championship qualifier which will take place on the 29th March, in which Guus Hiddink has stated that Cenk will get an opportunity to play. Cenk(left) celebrating scoring the third goal for Gaziantepspor in their 3-1 win against Sivasspor Cenk has admitted he looks up to star players such as Fernando Torres and Zlatan Ibrahimovich, and his favourite Turkish players are Tuncay and Arda Turan. Cenk is quick, strong, can beat defenders either with a piece of skill or just by sheer pace and acceleration. He is also comfortable with the ball with either foot. In these two videos you can see his two goals scored against Bursapor; n61qzvsQYIQ gvRWjf_XbAA On the database currently he is rated 75! When the Turkish changes do come around, I expect him to get a healthy(+7) rise. So snap him up quick! Hopefully i can keep you people updated with his progress.

  3. I had a quick search through some youngsters and I feel these players are worth buying. A few big risers here. You can make up your own mind from researching the player and their statistics. I'm not confident in my predictions, I tried this last season and I was a little off the mark with some players. Primera División Velez Sarsfield Gino PERUZZI 75 -> 77/76 - 395 minutes Boca Juniors Juan Sanchez Mino 75 -> 80 - 1073 minutes, 1 goal, 1 assist (copa 258 mins, 3 goals) (Suggested by marius) All Boys Francisco MARTÍNEZ 75 -> 77 - 612 minutes Newell's Old Boys Maximiliano URRUTI 76 -> 81 - 1489 minutes, 6 goals Guillermo ORTIZ 75 -> 77 - 632 minutes Fabian MUNOZ 75 -> 77 - 590 minutes Colon Lucas MUGNI 75 -> 78 - 923 minutes, 1 goal Gabriel GRACIANI 78 -> 80/81 - 1112 minutes, 1 goal Maximiliano CAIRE 78 -> 80/81 - 1278 minutes Argentinos Juniors Lucas CANO 75 -> 77 - 516 minutes Santiago NAGÜEL 75 -> 78 - 750 minutes, 1 goal Gaspar INIGUEZ 75 -> 80 - 1204 minutes Union Santa Fe Pablo MAGNIN 75-> 77 - 405 minutes, 2 goals Diego JARA 78-> 81 - 1088 minutes, 4 goals Independiente Fabian MONSERRAT 75-> 80/79 - 1227 minutes Olimpo Martin PEREZ GUEDES 75-> 81/80 - 1365 minutes, 5 goals Banfield Nicolas TAGLIAFICO 80-> 82/83 - 1620 minutes Andrés CHAVEZ 75 -> 78 - 1125 minutes, 3 goals Adrian RETA 75 -> 77 - 770 minutes, 1 goal, 1 assist Prim B Nacional I'm not really sure how to judge the predictions, even with promotion.

    Ronaldo or Messi

    Re: Ronaldo or Messi I'm pretty sure there is already a number of Messi v Ronaldo debates that have taken place in the past few months on here. However from my point of view Messi is the better of the two players , he the plays the game with a smile on his face and rarely ever is caught diving compared to Ronaldo, he is the stand out player in the best team in the world and although you could argue its the team around him that makes him the player he is Ronaldo hardly has a bad midfield around him does he. Messi is the player of our generation just like Zidane was to the one before.

  22. Re: -||Eredivisie Ratings-By Kunasher||- With all of respect, i cant understand why some of you people insist in giving Sigthórsson such a small rise. Actually, he scored 12 goals since last review (12-11-2010), 9 goals in Eredivisie, 2 goals in Europa League and 1 goal for Iceland, his National Team. I think it´s something. Also, like Kunasher already said, he is a starter for AZ since last changes, getting lots of minutes (last time he was re-rated he was mainly a sub and had few minutes, scored 2 goals and rised +3). AZ is doing pretty well in Eredivisie, they´re in 4th place and they have a lot of players with high ratings. If he keeps playing and scores a bit, i think 84 is a must, its not too much, its totally deserved. Just my opinion. Cheers.

    Re: Help With Deal(s) Thread... yes, i think its not a bad deal, because cassani will replace azpilicueta and you get also holtby, but to be honest azpilicueta is better than cassani, so it depends if you need holtby or believe that he will become a top player?

    EC 2933: Club Wikis

    Re: EC 2933: Club Wikis MANCHESTER CITY Past Managers Many short stints by various managers, only Billy Joe (14) and Raphael Sobowale (31) managed them for more than 10 games. None worth mentioning. Current Manager KopStar One of the best managers in the world, KopStar has been at the helm for over 100 games (at the time of writing 112 games for 57 wins at a 51% winning rate). KopStar has been the heart and soul of the club and managed them to a best ever position of 2nd in Season 4. The club have always been in contention for a Top 4 spot and agonizingly fell short in Season 5. Club Records: Highest Attendance: 47,725 v Derby County 23 Mar 2011 Highest Scoring League Game: Preston North End 3 v 3 Manchester City 26 Mar 2011 Most League Games Won in Row: 5 - 15 Jan 2011 to 29 Jan 2011 Most League Games Unbeaten in Row: 5 - 15 Jan 2011 to 29 Jan 2011 Highest Transfer Fee Paid: £18.0M - Arda TURAN from Galatasaray SK - 10 May 2010 Highest Transfer Fee Received: £33.1M - Per MERTESACKER to Werder Bremen - 19 Apr 2010 Captains: Walter Samuel (until 8 February) Diego Forlan (9 February- 2 March) Mark Schwarzer (2nd March- present) The Rivalry Tradition rivals, Manchester United are a rival but the key rivalry is that with Sunderland. Manager KopStar and Sunderland boss Kroitzz are known to be fierce rivals and the rivalry follows the two managers. Up until Kroitzz' betrayal of Everton where he moved to Sunderland, the rivalry moved with Kroitzz. Juan Mata, who signed from Sunderland, is seen by fans to have saved himself from eternal suffering by moving to City, but Aaron Lennon, who went in the other direction is one of the most hated players by fans.

  41. The Newspaper. It's not that commonly used, except in competitive game worlds. But, on logging in to one of my clubs, I saw lots of new Newspaper articles. This is the oldest one, written by a new 40 reputation manager That is pretty ridiculous. I'm guessing here, but this Marseille manager obviously tried to deal with Real Madrid and Liverpool, because: Liverpool manager^^^ That's the RM manager, a very nice guy who I've dealt with and spoken to before. Liverpool again. Their manager is a great guy, really nice, never had any problems with him. Marseille (remember, he's 40 rep) That's Marseille again. Liverpool^ I then decided to say something, with an article entitled "This is getting rather ridiculous" Then this come in, I seem to have done something good! The bold bit is probably addressed to me;) That was the Marseille manager. Arsenal manager. So far, that is all that has been said, in order from oldest to newest. Anyone else ever seen something quite so ridiculous?

    How to Speed Read How to speed read For most of my life, I have been reading like most people, vocalizing words in my mind. Sadly, this is extremely inefficient. However, a few months ago I stumbled upon speed reading, a collection of methods I found very helpful in increasing my reading speed. When I began applying these techniques, I saw dramatic increase in speed (over 200%) and comprehension while reading. Learning speed reading is fast and easy. After reading this guide, immediately practice with these techniques. You should be able to see a significant increase in your reading speed. Principles Get rid of distractions. Go to quiet places. If impossible, get earplugs. To read at maximum speed, you need maximum concentration that comes with quietness. Some people say they read better with music. In reality, no one reads the best with music; rather, music is used as a substitute distraction over some more annoying distractions (like the noises from loud roommates). So yes, music might be better than some other forms of noise. However, having no distraction is far more optimal (If you’re a university student, you can go to an isolated section in the library). Eliminate rereading. Rereading is a huge waste of time. An average reader engages in regression (conscious rereading) and back-skipping (subconscious rereading stemming from misplaced focus) for up to 30% of total reading time. Some strategies to prevent that would be to hold a pen, your finger, or an index card (with 1 inch indentation marks) under the line you’re reading and move it along. You can also try to cover the text you’ve already read with a sheet of paper. Don’t vocalize individual words in your mind. Our brains can take in information much faster than we can vocalize words. Move your eyes along the text faster than you can vocalize individual words in your mind, but slow enough for you to understand the text. If you still find yourself vocalizing, try repeating to yourself 1-2-3-4 in your mind. Techniques Read blocks of words. Instead of reading word by word, try reading blocks of words. For example, I now read a line in 1-2 fixations (a moment during which your brain soaks in words), instead of 10-15 fixations (like I used to). This decrease in fixations doesn’t decrease comprehension. Rather, I’ve noticed that my brain registers words better with my current method. Instead of stopping 10 times during a sentence and interrupting myself all the time, my reading has become more fluid, allowing me to read faster and with greater comprehension. Minimize the number and duration of fixations per line to increase speed. You don’t read in a straight line, but rather in a sequence of jumps. Each of these jumps ends with a fixation. To demonstrate these jumps, close one eye, place a fingertip on top of that eyelid, and then slowly scan a straight horizontal line with your other eye-you will feel distinct and separate movements and periods of fixation. Use central focus. Try focusing at the center of each line. Begin by placing your eyes in the middle of the line and move your eyes peripherally (register the entire line and then move down). This method has allowed me to save considerable time. Once you’ve mastered this method, you can try focusing in the middle of a paragraph and gradually soak it in. If you’re having difficulty with it, try starting out with a text you’re already familiar with to ease the transition. Develop your peripheral vision span. Practice increasing your horizontal peripheral vision span and the number of words registered per fixation. Without using horizontal peripheral vision span during reading, you can lose up to 50% of words per fixation (the number of words that can be perceived and “read” in each fixation). Moving your head as you read is a bad idea; it takes time and disrupts your concentration. Applying Speed reading Adjustment. Not all reading materials are created the same. Some require more concentration, and thus, slower reading speed (such as complex math). However, you can go faster through more accessible texts, such as newspaper articles. Start with bigger font. Bigger font is easier to speed read. As you practice, you can gradually adjust to smaller fonts. It is also easier to speed read texts with proper space between the lines. Gradually increase your speed. Going too fast makes speed reading useless. Therefore, start with whatever is the maximum speed at which you can comprehend well. You should increase the speed gradually and keep challenging yourself. It may be easier to start with a text you’re already familiar with and work your way up to more challenging reading tasks. Time yourself. Pick a book worth reading and time yourself. Begin with your current methods and see how long it takes you to read a few paragraphs. Now, apply the tips in this article and see if how much you’ve improved. As you develop your abilities as a speed reader, test yourself every once in a while to see how much you’ve improved.

    Re: My ideas and thoughts I'll be posting in this thread my thoughts about topics that I think might be interesting. Posts so far: Overcoming Soccermanager addiction How to Speed Read I'll be happy to hear any feedback and opinions about my posts, especially if they differ from mine. ############################################### 04-05-2011 update: I'll post new stuff when I can. Which is anywhere from this week to next year. --- Later on, I might add somewhat controversial arguments that are purposefully over the top. The idea is to push an argument to its extreme to generate interesting discussion. -- Update 12-4-2011: Naw, forget the above. I'm gonna start using this thread to talk about things I wouldn't wanna talk about in real life but have fun theories about. Perhaps something controversial. This'll be my free online therapy, huh? PS. Wow! Just realized this thread has over 2000 views. I remember it had maybe 400-500 back in May, which is when I made my last post. I guess that link in my sig did draw some viewers (although no one commented or repped so the post probably just sucked haha) ############## Overcoming Soccermanager addiction Checking the Soccermanager account too often is a significant time drain. If you find yourself logging onto your account more frequently than you'd like, perhaps it's time to make a change. Here are some tips to prevent your Soccermanager-hobby from becoming an undesirable addiction. 1. Decide in advance exactly when you’ll log onto Soccermanager. Don't check your account haphazardly. It's quite easy to waste several hours in a day by just logging onto your account every hour. In addition, if you are on Soccermanager very frequently, chances are that it keeps dominating your thoughts even when you're not actively managing your team or socializing on the forums. These actions waste your time and decrease your productivity on other activities. Planning in advance how frequently you manage your clubs allows you to take charge of the amount of time you spend on Soccermanager. For example, if you check your account in the morning, set a specific time for your next visit. If you get addicted to checking your account too often, you can help break the habit by making it harder to access the website. Remove the direct link from your desktop, remove saved passwords, remove the link favorites, etc. Experiment with what works for you. Adding extra steps can help break the pattern of impulse checking. 2. Log your visiting frequency. Create a Soccermanager visiting frequency log, and record how often you check your account. Simply write down or type the start and stop times whenever you log in. Do it for about a week, and see how much time you’re spending on Soccermanager. Is it worth it? Eventually, try giving yourself a daily or weekly Soccermanager checking quota, and once you hit it, you can’t check your account anymore until the next day/week when your quota resets. Perhaps offer yourself a reward for sticking to this plan. This is a truly enjoyable hobby for footballing fans; however, when a hobby turns into an uncontrollable addiction that affects your everyday life, it might be the time to stop, reassess the situation, and make changes. --- Obviously, these same methods can be used to combat forum addiction, in case you feel that is becoming a problem as well. PS. Yes, I am speaking from personal experience in case someone in wondering.

    Brazil V Scotland

    Re: Brazil V Scotland I always think it's a little bit lazy to just throw the anti-football tag at teams like Scotland when they're playing the likes of Brazil. Craig Levein might well have told them to be as progressive as possible and try to take the game to Brazil but the reality is they, and an awful lot of other sides in the world for that matter, aren't good enough to retain possession for long enough to do so. Take Arsenal in Camp Nou, I have a hard time believing Wenger with his pretty rigid and stubborn philosophy went into that game telling them to play as they did, but sometimes the better team will dictate the flow of the game and force a certain style or game plan upon you. Were Scotland turning up today with the intention of simply stopping Brazil playing then the selection of players like Adam and Morrison in the midfield is a little puzzling given that they're more likely to effect the game on the ball, rather than stifling the opposition. Edit: As much as I'd like to see Neymar sign for an English club for selfish reasons, there's no doubting it'd be a better move for his development as a player to go to Spain.
