  1. Re: Bradford CFC Challenge! Transfers/Match Reports etc. After seeing such a good post from Smoggie Tom i decided i would have to post about my Bradford City side aswell because they are also my favourite team on the game by a mile and i think its most certainly a story worth telling. After winning Division's 4, 3 and 2 in consecutive seasons Bradford City have moved into the top flight of English football under Deveney's guidance full of confidence, knowing that they possess the quality to cause more than a few upsets in their opening season in Division 1. The first team and youth squad at Bradford has changed dramatically over the past three and a half seasons with Deveney wheeling and dealing regularly in the transfer market to bring in the best possible players for his side. The half way point of the season (Turn 19) has been reached for Bradford and despite a shaky start in the top tier which included four consecutive defeats to Portsmouth, Aston Villa, Leicester City and Manchester City, Deveney's men are now unbeaten in 11 league games including the notable scalps of Manchester United (3-2, H), Tottenham (3-0, H) and Blackburn (4-0, H). This leaves the Bantams in a lofty 3rd position in the league at the midway part of the season, trailing the Footballing giants of Liverpool by 5 points. City have fallen in both domestic trophies this season already with tough draws resulting in losses in both the Cup (2-5 Away at Liverpool, Round 3) and the Shield (1-3 Home to Arsenal). This does not worry Deveney too much in his quest for silverware, as he saw enough promise from the young guns of his second team to know that they have the quality to win things in future seasons at Bradford. The current playing staff at this point in time are found at this link, along with previous honours: Bradford City Deveney has managed to bring in some superbly talented players in his time at Valley Parade and the current first team squad is packed with quality. The average rating of the first choice 11 is 91 and has an average age of 24, with the two standout performers coming in the shape of Amauri and Trochowski, as well as Mutu who has only been at the club for four games thus far. The youth squad is also brimming with potential for the future, with the likes of Santon, Rafael, Dzagoev and Balotelli waiting in the wings along with many others. In terms of news of the transfer front, i am looking to sell Michael Rensing after his rises at Bayern to make a hefty profit, and as well as this Portugese midfielder Miguel Veloso should soon be sold before his drop in rating as he hasn't been having the best of times recently. The ideal replacement for Deveney is Fernando Gago, but this could be tough to negotiate so only time will tell on whether the Argentinian starlet will join the club. I will update again at the end of the season to see how i finish in my first season in the top flight, enjoying this job immensely and very proud of what iv'e done with the club as of where they started. Cheers!
  2. Re: SM Award - Greatest Side Ever (The Final) Voted for Mark's Bradford, class Mine arent bad either, in my sig the link, my favourite SM team by a mile, a lot of time gone into them
  3. Re: Stilianos Malezas (80 -> 85) Cheers mate' date=' got him for my Leeds [/font']
  4. Re: Christian MAGGIO & Hatem BEN ARFA Maggio is a good player and was regular for Napoli until his injury early in March which he is still out of action from, so this could affect his rating in a couple of weeks time. Ben Arfa is undoubtedly a talent, but he is on and off and he struggles to be consistent enough over the course of a season to be deemed top quality just yet. If he could manage to play to his potential week in week out he could be a world beater, but he is yet to fulfill the promise that he possessed as a youngster at Lyon. In terms of the deal, if you could find a similar rated player to replace Maggio such as Mata then it would be well worth it, i am a fan of Maggio but not sure if he will maintain his 90 due to the injury he suffered. It depends whether you need a RM like Maggio or another defender to replace Richards?
  5. Re: English Premier League ratings I personally felt John Obi Mikel deserved +1 to 92 for his exploits this season, played pretty well and many times in the midfield for Chelsea when Essien and others have been missing, others seemed to think this before the changes aswell.
  6. Re: Need help on who to buy! Jagielka has had a fantastic season and definitely deserves 88 --> 90 for the centre back, depends if you want to be signing Everton players for Liverpool though
  7. Re: Bassong to 86 what??????????? This drugs you speak of must be some pretty good gear if they are specific enough to make him talk in detail about Habib Beye's quality as a defender and likeliness of his inclusion in Manchester United's starting eleven/squad! Didn't know that sort of drug was about ..
  8. Re: Bassong to 86 what??????????? He's a better Footballer than John O'Shea who is very poor on the ball' date=' Gary Neville is finished, he's definitely as good or better than Wes Brown .. Wouldn't be far away from your RB position i wouldn't of thought in my opinion.[/font']
  9. Re: Bassong to 86 what??????????? When everyone is fit i would say that Beye is comfortably our best defender and quite similar ability-wise to Johnson' date=' who does deserve 90 for sure.[/font']
  10. Re: Bassong to 86 what??????????? No he didn't. For him to be placed 4 ratings behind the mess that is Coloccini is just wrong basically' date=' i'm a Newcastle fan and i can honestly say he deserved to stay, not been a fantastic season for him and the team obviously but he has been better than Coloccini for the mostpart![/font']
  11. Re: Bradford CFC Challenge! Transfers/Match Reports etc. .. BCFC Haven't had chance to post on the forum in a long while, very busy these days but my Bradford are by far my favourite team, 3 consecutive titles and now in the top division, team coming on well! Link above will show squad and such, Jagielka also set to join later today!

  13. Re: Deveneeey vs MrNiceGuy vs AsianInvasian Honours Challenge Since the last update, my Benfica in GC 18 have picked up both domestic trophies in Portugal with 0-5 and 0-8 wins respectively, and the league looks potentially possible as was as still being in the SMFA Shield (Round 3) Going well As well as them two trophies, the recovery from previous poor management of Italian giants Lazio has been completed as the Division 2 title was comfortably secured. My tally has been increased to 6 now, i'm sure Kuldeep and Matt will update when they have the chance .
