  1. You forgot Wrexham. They have been in Division 2 for a while now I think. I've been Swindon's manager for 4 years now. I would leave but no other club will even give me an interview. Currently I can't leave anyway until the SMFA have concluded their investigation into some financial irregularities at my club. At the beginning of the season my Chairman injected a large sum of cash into the club, which I duly spent on two Russian players.... Denis Glushakov (12m from Nottingham Forest) and a club record of 17.5m for Alexander Kokorin from Tamworth. However, it now turns out that the money didn't actually belong to my Chairman. Everything should be okay though, the wonderful people of Swindon have all got together and are selling off the town's church & hospital to help raise some money so the Chairman can pay off the debt. In other news our cup run was finally put to an end last night by Watford. Actually it was the first round but that's still a pretty good run by our standards.

  2. Just a curiosity about Wales' teams. There are probably more, I don't know, but Newport, Cardiff and Swansea are on Div3 for the last three seasons. Swansea and Cardiff are both without a manager at the moment, and I think it's not the first time that this happens. Different patterns though. Swansea had 22 managers since the start while Cardiff had only 4. Newport had 6 managers before me. I'm at the commands for 377 games now - more than 3 years. How time flies! Some of you have more games in EC7777, some of you have less, why don't you share your experience until now? Let's reactivate this thread a bit?!

  4. V PREDICTION: Manchester City will travel to Newcastle needing a win to save their season. Both sides will be at full strength but I think it will be a home win. 1-0 A MOTM performance by their goalkeeper was not enough for Manchester City to grab the points at St James. Troy Deeney also contributed hugely to his side with a couple of shots in the first half that went wide or were saved and also played El Ghazi into a good position but to know avail. One minute into the second half it was Deeney again, this time to Brandt, who opened the scoring and give the visitors the lead and then for some reason City took the foot off the pedal. With Newcastle starting to find some space it took just 8 minutes for jese to find Austin unmarked and scores were even. Now the fight was on and Austin came close again but with 20 to go it was Jese who provided the pass again, this time for Rolan to put his side in the lead. Some very slick Newcastle defense saw a goal disallowed for Offside - Deeney again, and with the way he played it is difficult to understand how he did not win the MOTM.With one round to go Manchester City need a big win and need Club America to lose if they are to remain in the top flight. Final Score 2-1 V PREDICTION: Guangzhou will host Cologne who can mathematically avoid the drop but it will be tough for them. Again both sides at full strength. Cologne have only managed 5 draws and a loss form their last six and a draw is about the best they can do here I feel. Draw is forecast. 1-1 In a game where possession was about even Colgne simply could not create enough chances to get the win that would keep them from the drop and they are now confirmed as the second team relegated. A goal by MOTM Vecino was the decider in this game but the home side were unfortunate not to get a second when Oyarzabal was ruled offside after slotting home just before the hour mark. Kranevitter had one of his better games and pulled a couple of good saves from Sels but it was not to be. Cologne will now join Guangzhou in rebuilding for a return to the top flight. V PREDICTION: Club America will host PSG with both sides looking to get away from the drop. With CA just above the drop Zone on 33 they are two points clear of man City and only one point below PSG. This is a real 6-point game. A win for either side will almost assure them of Div one football in season two...the loser could be in real trouble if Man City pull off a win. Forecasting a home win. 1-2 A draw in this match was enough for PSG who are now save for this season. Club America are still outside the drop Zone but a loss in their final game and a win to Man City could still see them relegated on the last day. PSG Keeper Zoet won MOTM in a game where no one else deserved it. Final Score 0-0 V PREDICTION: Venk's Berlin will host Stuttgart looking to confirm their third spot on the ladder. Both sides at full strength probably means a home win. 1-3 Hertha Berlin slipped up on a Stuttgart banana peel courtesy of Australian captain Mile Jedinak's first half brace. Jedinak will have to buy a beer for Piotr Zielinski however as it was the Polish winger was the provider for both his goals. Zielinski found Jedinak unmarked with a great cross to the top of the box in the 23rd minute and the midfielder fired one into the bottom corner for the lead. 5 minutes before half time the same two players linked up again for Jedinak to catch the keeper off his line and strike a dipping shot that beat him cold. Berlin came back hard at the visitors but were unable to breach the defence. Manager Venk will be disappointed with the result which saw his side slip to 4th place on goal difference to Celtic who regained their composure against Ajax. Final Score 0-2

  5. I'm also very curious to know when the League will be reviewed. Maybe after the Euro?... The center forwards are an historical problem, and nowadays it is even surreal! The best that we have for the NT is Éder. With all my respect to him, he is a professional trying to do his best, but we really have a problem there. And in my opinion defenders will come next: Pepe 33, Ricardo Carvalho 38, José Fonte 32, Bruno Alves 34. As long as doubtful quality foreign players keep on coming for cents, in order to valuate them fast and then resell, the good quality Portuguese young players will not have a chance. Nothing against quality foreign players, they are good for the League.

  7. V PREDICTION: Cologne will host Newcastle first up in this round needing a win with absolute certainty to avoid the drop to Div 2 football. Both sides are at full strength with newcastle on a high after a last match win. Cologne to struggle...Away win forecast. 0-1 In a tough physical game that saw 6 yrlloe cards, only one of which was to Newcastle, Cologne showed that all the fight has not gone from them as they struggle to get out of the drop zone although this is looking evermore unlikely. Charlie Austin opened the scoring i the 25th minute to put the visitors in front latching on to a perfect free kick from Drinkwater. Donnarumma made a couple of good saves to keep his side in the game but Cologne started to fight their way back into the game. In the end it was MOTM midfielder Rabiot who bent a crisp free kick around the wall with only three minutes to go to even the scores. Cologne will be pleased with their effort and intensity while Newcastle will be disappointed that they did not come away with all the points. Final Score 1-1 V PREDICTION: Paris St Germain will be hoping to secure their Div One status when Guangzhou come to visit. Both sides at full strength but the need to win will be enough to get PSG home. 0-2 It was a very even match at the Parc De Princes and Guanzhou showed that, despite their relegation being certain now, they have spirit and are still dangerous. Plus while PSG are looking safe now to remain in the top league, they should not let points slip the way they did here. It was not a high standard game with both teams guilty of missing passes and an inability to make openings to score. In the end the class of 19 year old Dembele shone through for a moment enabling him to find Oyarzabal unmarked and able to slot the ball home for the winner just four minutes from time. Final Score 0-1 V PREDICTION: Stuttgart will welcome Club America without the suspended Boufal. CA have Ndong out through injury. Last time they met it was a 0-0 draw and I predicting a similar result. 0-3 (sigh) With three goals coming in the first half it seemed this one may be a real high scoring affair. MOTM put Milik through on goal in the 4th minute to start the ball rolling and in the 23rd minute the roles were reversed as Tatarusanu made a fantastic save to keep the score at just one. In the 36th minute Oliveira was awarded a free kick and hit a screamer from 25 yards that gave the keeper no chance and CA looked in trouble. However just on the beat of half time Christensen played a long through ball to Baston who ran in on goal and beat the keeper to get his side back in touch. However the second half became a drab affair as the home side sat back and successfully defended their lead although a free kick from Sanches on the hour found Janssen who forced an acrobatic save from Areola to keep his side in front. Final Score 2-1 V PREDICTION: Ajax have a tough task when they welcome Hertha Berlin to De Kuip. They are still in need of another win to secure Division One safety and Berlin are winning more and more as the end of the season approaches. Away win forecast. 1-3 (hoorah) A goal from Zukanovic in the 5th minute and a MOTM performance from Kasper Schmeichel was enough to see Berlin continue on their winning way and it seem Manager Venk will be after a bigger contract for next season. Berlin defended their lead well slowing the game down at every opportunity and the home side could not find a way to break through. Final Score 0-1
