  1. Funny day yesterday. We had Kondogbia and Martinez. Now we've lost both. I'm not as frustrated as some. Both were going to be very costly and very risky. Inter have paid over 40 mil and have made him their highest paid player. This is the type of player who isn't a game changer. He'll make you more solid and a better team, but he cost more than Fabregas for example! Martinez? That's a little more frustrating because he is top class but at his age, I think he should be cheaper too. Ibra doesn't look a possibility anymore but I'd take him over Martinez. He would offer guarantees. I'm surprised y

  5. I don't know if anything like this has ever been thought up but I think it'd be fun to join an English Championship in Div 5 and see how long or if it's even possible to eventually end up with 1 Billion in the bank. Could be done so each person is in a different setup or if only a few people are interested, I think it would be fun to compete against each other on the field as well, though the real winner will be whoever reaches 1 Billion first.
  6. Re: Official Serie A Thread I think he'll leave this summer. They'll be signing a replacement' date=' especially if Pogba is sold. They've already admitted they're going after Dybala, who wants to stay in Italy, over going to a team like Arsenal. He'd leave for a Barca or Madrid, but he wouldn't play there. Even at Arsenal, he wouldn't be the main man like he would be at Juve. Napolifan, what do you think of Sinisa? Milan were linked with him too, but I would be nervous if we landed him. Done a good job at Samp but they have a decent squad, lets not forget. Such poor discipline as a player
  7. Re: Official Serie A Thread A very depressing derby to watch. But there was reason to be positive after the game, with "Mr Bee" apparently signing a deal to take 20% of the club and increase that amount to 70% by the 2016/2017 season. It looks like next season will be the first year since the 70's that there has been no Milan club in Europe! Very impressed and happy with Napoli's performance against Wolfsburg. Unexpected. The last 5 or so years has left me questioning whether Italy's finest can beat even the weakest European teams. It was nice to see a team play like a team, something I hav

  9. Re: English Premiership Rating Predictions Cazorla has no chance of hitting 93?
  10. Re: Rags To Riches III - Re-emergence of the minnows Torquay Get Their Man! Vietto replaces Kane. Having sold Kane for £10.9M midweek (£8.5 profit), Baldo moved quickly to snap up his replacement, splashing out £6.2M on 21 year old Argentine Luciano Vietto. The club will be hoping the signing will ensure they reach their target of automatic promotion. "It's a lot of money but he's a huge talent. All the players who have netted as much as he has in La Liga at his age, continued to develop and became the best strikers in the world. We'll be happy enough with him just guiding us to a top t
  11. Re: Official Serie A Thread Forza Italia! Keep it up. Torino definitely impressed me the most. The first Italian side to win in Bilbao, from 9 attemps. 7 were defeats! Ended a 5 year wait for an Italian to knock out a Spanish side too. I hope the draws are favourable in the next round. But anyone can beat anyone in this. Far more unpredictable than the UCL.
  12. Re: Luck of the Irish Bringing Serie A to Ireland! A few days into the job at Belfast side Linfield and already Baldo looks close to completing his squad. The Anglo-Italian has stuck to what he knows best and brought in players mostly from England and Italy. Brozovic and Rugani are the stand out names, with international experience already, but the real experience should come from the 31 year old Braafheid, who cost just 2.3 mil. Oliver Kirch is another older player, in an otherwise young squad, but his versatility could be even more useful than his vast experience. Empoli have been r
  13. Re: Luck of the Irish Mcnair 78 Rugani 85 Braafheid 84 Masuaku 83 Verdi 83 Valdifiori 84 Brozovic 85 Ibe 82 29.9 mil on this. Overspent so far.
  14. Re: Fluff's Mixed Nations I'm ready. I've posted on here since the teams were announced. IDK if that was enough. 30 managers should be a fun change. Used to 20 max.
  15. Re: Fluff's Mixed Nations Pedro, I'm gonna word this as nicely as I can. Give me VITESSE!!! Thinking about it, Sparta Praha may have a higher valued squad?
  16. Re: From Rags To Riches II - The World Club Version. I'm 19th in Div 2. Can I get some odds on making the top 3? I think I'll do it.
  17. Re: Luck of the Irish I'm interested
  18. Re: Rags To Riches III - Re-emergence of the minnows Torquay boss... Subtracting my sales from my buys, I'm left with 5.8mil outgoing. I've just had two away games at EPL sides in the last few weeks. 5th best attendance in the division. I'm playing by the rules. I remember getting 800k in the first R2R, when I had Arsenal away.
  19. Re: Fluff's Mixed Nations I'd be interested. Think I've only ever been in 1 of your setups.
  20. Re: Now This Is What I Call A Soccer Challenge Can you even have a division of just 6 teams?! I thought the minimum was 8. Anyway, I'd suggest creating the setup ASAP. We could then wait till it's full, before we make signings. Then those involved already will have a reason to quickly help get managers to join too. I'll be asking one or two if they want to join.
  21. Re: Now This Is What I Call A Soccer Challenge It was just a suggestion guys, chill out! Yes, I'd still be interested. I forgot to add that I'm not saying the manager would have to leave, they could be offered a job by the setup creator, and reject it. There'd have to be an added incentive to join that club. Not sure what though. Maybe you can take any 3 players from your old club. Something like that. Anyway, it's clear people are happy with the current idea. One of the main attractions to the idea I suggested was to see how some teams could do in a division with other teams on a higher bud
  22. Re: Now This Is What I Call A Soccer Challenge I'd be interested in this setup. What do you think of maybe mixing the teams up. There will still be teams with the restrictions that you've set like buying 87 and below and having a smaller budget but maybe putting a few of these sides in Div 1/Div 2? You then give them the goal of staying up. If they manage to have a very impressive season, they are offered the job of a top team, that had an awful season and were way off their expected finish? Like if one of the top teams you place in Div 3, fails to get promoted.
  23. Re: English Championship 12963 WHO WANTS IT MOST!? 2 games remain in what is proving to be the most dramatic of seasons. Only City, who are current leaders, have picked up the trophy before but their hunger to win it this year cannot be questioned, with the 1 league trophy being won way back in Season 1. They remain the clear favourites, facing relegated Chelsea and then an off form Everton on the final day. Will the pressure get to the Sky Blue's though? O'Brien's West Ham sit in second, and have certainly been the shock of the season. 7 consecutive wins prove they're the on form team
  24. Re: Official Serie A Thread I'm sure Garcia knows what he's doing but is Doumbia any better than Destro? Certainly not as a finisher. Doesn't seem very relaxed in front of goal but will probably suit their style a little more. Funny if they sign Ibarbo too. Another speed demon.
  25. Re: Official Serie A Thread Mhm. Totally. Do you follow Italian football much? I'll agree with you that this team isn't what it was 10 years ago. Either is this league. Either is football. There are far less world class players, especially in defence. Where are the incredible players at Napoli? Only Hamsik, Callejon and Higuain. They have a much better manager, that gets them playing. Fiorentina have a more talented squad. Better CB's than ourselves and Napoli. Cuadrado, Borja (underrated), Rossi (when fit). Lazio have no top class players. Candreva and Klose, at a stretch. But a very g
