  1. Hi there. Does anyone have any suggestions for a young right back? Preferably rated somewhere in the 80s atm(low 80s is fine) that will rise by a point or more over this season, preferably at a big club aswell. I can't really think of any others other than Martin Kelly or Jenkinson. Also I need a young gk. Preferably one who is rated 90 or under and has good scope to rise. I was thinking Szczesny because he's the no.1 for Arsenal(when fit) and he's only 22 which should give him good scope to rise. Is anyone a better option than Szczesny? I was thinking maybe Sirigu or something, suggestions ar
  2. Re: Official Spanish La Liga Discussion Thread The amount of diving going on in this match is sheer ridiculousness, Di Maria particularly.
  3. Re: Official Chelsea FC Thread A pretty solid performance from Chelsea, you never really looked in trouble apart from Ballack's chance. Torres' general performance was pretty poor but his two assists were very good, I wish he took the goal in the last minute himself though. I think you should start David Luiz up front against Man U and see how that goes He's technically brilliant, however, I get very worried when he goes charging up the field lol. Sturridge impressed again, he's playing like he really wants his first team spot. Out of the Leverkusen players Schurrle stood out. Good movement
  4. Re: Official Manchester City Thread How are the ticket sales going for tomorrow? I hope there will be a good atmosphere. It's going to be hard choosing between watching Man U tear Benfica apart or you lot tear Napoli apart I think I'll watch you against Napoli for the Hamsik/Cavani factor.
  5. Re: Official Liverpool Thread I wouldn't think anything of it tbh. Real Madrid are linked with players in good form every day. I doubt he will have a release clause, as most players don't in England, and I doubt Liverpool will sell him for anything under £40m as he's been so important for them so far. Real may well be looking at him though, he's been one of the best players in the league since he signed. I hope he stays at Liverpool too, he's a joy to watch.
  6. Re: Official Liverpool Thread Where did you hear this mate? At this point in the season it seems unlikely that Real would be going to put an offer in for him, especially considering he only signed for Liverpool 9 months ago and he looks to be really enjoying himself in the Premiership. I think Real have wanted every decent player in the world at some point lol. On a side note, does anyone else find it HILARIOUS when Suarez appeals for decisions etc? The look on his face as he charges towards the officials with his hands going crazy hahah
  7. Re: Official Liverpool Thread Hazard is immense.
  8. Re: Official Sunderland Thread You best change your avatar mate haha
  9. Re: Ugliest Players Obertan. Modric isn't too great either.
  10. Re: Official Sunderland Thread Gyan leaving is complete madness. Why not get rid of him in the transfer window instead of now when we can't replace him? Possible explanations for his departure: 1. Gyan and/or Gyan's agent forced the deal through because he wants to fill his boots, rather than pursue his career in the best league in the world. I can't imagine we were underpaying him. He was happy to sign on the dotted line a year ago and has done nothing to deserve a wage rise since. Seriously, say I was Eto'o. I'm getting £100k a week from Inter to play in the Serie A, in my prime, then Anz
  11. Re: Does anyone respect Barcelona anymore? I personally hate Barcelona, mainly because they dominate matches too much. Fair play they play wonderful football, but I like games to be close it's annoying when it's a rout almost every time they play somebody. But anyway that's off topic. I hate how theatric their players are. Granted there are a lot of teams like this these days, but nobody is as bad as Barca. The only players in their starting 11 who I've never seen dive are Xavi and Puyol I think. Messi tries to stay on his feet a lot of the time even when he's getting kicked, but he does stil
  12. Re: Official Manchester City Thread Wow, Citeh are looking an unstoppable force atm. The real test will come when you play United/Chelsea. Your attack is tearing anyone you play to pieces.
  13. Re: Official Arsenal Thread Surprisingly strong performance from the Gunners, perhaps getting rid of the bad eggs has lifted the team's spirit. You still look very bare in defence/midfield, there's a real lack of backup. Signings who can walk into the starting 11 NEED to be made. You should have enough cover up front however with Van Persie/Gervinho/Chamakh/Bendtner/Walcott all being able to play there. Gervinho proved me wrong tonight, we'll need to see how he fares throughout the season. Sczcesny had an excellent game too, but with him being young mistakes are expected and they probably wil
  14. Re: Official Liverpool Thread I've never seen such a biased article in my life, even on a club website
  15. Re: Official Arsenal Thread Surely Wenger knows that he absolutely MUST make signings, or else he will lose the fans, his players and eventually his job. Regarding the board and the club's apparent wage structure, could they not just take extra money out of the transfer kitty to cover for a would be signing's wages if it's outwith their current wage structure? Hopefully someone at the club has a brain. I hope that you hold out against Udinese, it would be bad for our game to lose a team so early after all 4 teams getting into the quarter finals last year. Regarding your team, Sczcesny looks l
  16. Re: Official Arsenal Thread Not a good start from the Gooners, and it doesn't look to be improving any time soon. Personally I'd get an experienced 'keeper, Sczcesny is good but experience is pretty invaluable in that area of the park. You should've jumped at the chance to sign Given or Friedel. I'd also look at a left back, perhaps Baines as Gibbs is made of glass and is inexperienced. TV also needs a good partner. Koscielny, Squillaci and Djourou just aren't good enough. Perhaps Gareh Cahill or Scott Dann. The next area that needs strengthening is in the centre of midfield. With Fabregas go
  17. Re: Official Chelsea FC Thread Oops I forgot him, edited
  18. Re: Official Chelsea FC Thread Now that Chelsea have Torres, Drogba, Sturridge, Kalou, Malouda, Lukaku and Anelka...where the hell do they all fit in? I can't see them all staying happy tbh. You'll probably need to loan out Sturridge and/or Lukaku(like you did with Courtouis) or you'll need to sell Anelka or Drogba. Opinions please Blues. Who would you keep and who would you offload and who starts?
  19. Re: Official Player Ratings Discussion Thread For me, the worst ratings were those of Llorente, Koscielny, Nasri, Malouda, Terry and Carrick. Llorente has been on fire this season and Bilbao have proven themselves to be one of the top sides in la liga, it's about time SM done away with Bilbao's 90 ratings cap. Also bear in mind that Madrid are on his tail. Koscielny has been decent this season, regularly starting for a top 4 team in the premier league. He's been sent off a couple of times but they were harsh imo. A rise to 89 would've been appropriate. If Nasri was playing for Barca he'd prob
  20. Re: Diego Milito He will probably stay, with a very slight chance of a drop. He was on fire last season and won the CL and Serie A. He's been out with a thigh problem this season and I doubt SM will penalise him for this.
