    I forgot to mention that my other CBs are Phil Jones, Chris Smalling, Matija Nastasic, Jonny Evans, Kurt Zouma, Etienne Capoue and Jerome Boateng.
    It's a Gold Championship in which I would be in it for the long term.
    And as for the Muller deal, what if I countered with Kyriakos Papdopoulos + Sami Khedira?

    I'm looking to sell one of the two to raise cash.

    Regretting selling Young for cash in main Gold setup. I'm shocked that he has got to 91.
    Disappointed with Anderson's drop. Surprised with Smalling's rise as well. But I'd like to think the Man Utd review isn't finished, as with Man City (Yaya Toure and Kompany for 94 perhaps?)
    And it's just criminal that Ramires hasn't got a 92. Just criminal.

    I think Canales is still seen a a player with great potential, but he has been professionally injured for so so long now.
    I wouldn't do the deal personally, but you should get a second opinion

    I would keep Nasri IMO.Do you need money? and a CB? Canales is with Valencia and yes he has died down a bit over the year or so.Not died down as he is a bad player just there is not much talk about him.He is a talent but I think he is at the right club with Valencia where he will have time to shine to what he can be.
    At the moment this is the best he will be i think for some time.I don't see him a big future player IMO.However' date=' Adil is a good CB.

    The main reason for my coming here today, is to announce that I will no longer be in charge of the GW. It will be made 'Public Open', and I'll be relinquishing my control of it. The reason this is significant is because this will likely result in the potential closure of it if nobody decides they want to purchase it from SM. However, I'm confident it's the right choice, and for the best.

    Nothing Like It


    We had some good times though didn't we? The first two weeks especially was something special.
    Do you all remember the first Villarreal manager? Spent virtually all of his budget on just eight players!
    Then there was Liverpool who had a habit of making people withdraw bids 4 times over before others frustratingly came to hijack the respective deal.
    But let's not dwell on the more negative aspects, I mean, you have to admit; for the first 48 hours (until the GW officially opened), everybody's mouths were watering, dreaming of who to sign. Why? Because every player in the game was a free agent, and no team had any tactical advantages. It was a level playing field that presented each and every manager the equal opportunity to create a dynasty out of nothing.

    Thanks


    From the founder of Pedigree, I'd just like to extend my thanks to everyone who participated in this legendary setup. It may not have had the longest lifetime ever, but for the time that it was around, it gave us all something to rememeber.

    Not only was you first player to join, but there was absolutely no question mark against you when it came down to the business side of things. You created arguably the most solid team around with Gremio, thus giving every other team in the division something to worry about. You were also a solid manager as well.
    Vendetta
    You were very much my right-hand man. I didn't ask for your help, but still you gave it to me. You were part of the reason why Pedigree gained so much publicity. But best of all, you WANTED Pedigree to be successful. I was really fortunate to come across you tbh.
    Infernito
    How can anyone forget this guy. I will probably always know you as the "simpson" who only ever talks when something needs to be said - and at times, that approach resulted in occasionally outrageously funny posts. That aside, you've added a lot to the GW. You were the more or less the watcher, and did a good job with Athletic Club.
    Gorbash (formerly blinkins)
    Creator, sophisticated, a true visionary. You had a plan, and you knew why you had it. You knew what you wanted, and you went out and got it. You did a job with Estudiantes that caught everybody by surprise (including myself). If, Pedigree would have lasted for another 5 years, you would have been odds on favourite to dominate due to what you assembled. And furthermore, you added brains to this setup, giving advice here & there when needed. Great manager, great friend.

    You were that Everton manager weren't you?! Haha, only kidding. You were notably one of the most excited players on the forum during those first 48 hours. But personally, I will remember you for all the transfer tussles that we had - 8 to 10 at one go if I recall correctly. All in all though, you were very much one of the voices of Pedigree, so it was great to have you around.

    Why you named your Mexican team Cruijiff is still a a mystery in my eyes, but I guess you had a vision, and that should be respected. However, though not quite as obvious, you were one of the culprits who were overpaying for players which resulted in people complaining, lol. Victor Valdes (£40M). Haha, only kiddin. During those first two weeks, you were very much a corner stone of Pedigree with your transfer rants, and match reports.

    I have to leave the last to last. Last in that, even until this day, when every single Pedigree manager has deserted the setup (including myself), there is still one guy remaining. I was absolutely flabbergasted when I was informed by Ben earlier today that there is still one manager remaining. Just incredible. Everybody was dedicated, but you took the term "dedication" to a whole new level! That, I commend you for.
    Everybody else, please understand that you're participation was valued no less than the aforementioned managers (it's just a difficult to memorise so much). iAwesome, dylan_1993, wo0dsy, yellabelly, zwlim87, sunnyskeg, Trav1, ramanto, big sofo, andymafia, AbuDhabi, Costas Konstantakis, jr231990, kratosw0w, Magic27, Rodrigo0, ryangal1982, sgzz, sirmarkhughes, slbquista, the_special_one, all of you. All of your names are etched into the stones of history. When people talk about Pedigree, you can say "I was there".

    End of an Era


    On the 21st of April 2012, Pedigree was born. Today, exactly half a year later, it's time has come.
    On behalf of myself, it has been a pleasure.

    The duo have potential but that's about it. I think that Martinez will turn out to be a very good defender but that will take many years. Griezmann also looks good but it's very doubtful that he will ever reach the ratings that Balotelli should reach once he return to Seria A football. I would keep Balotelli in your situation.

    Although all of them are good deals, I like the Cavani one the most.

    Only 7 managers could stick it for season 2
    Zenit wins again to get to the second cup final in 2 seasons.
    Only best of the best remain in the league.
    Buying from unmanaged scared off loads of managers because they couldn't organise their club well enough to raise funds or bought badly in the beginning.
    Many also are leaving these customs as there are loads out there at the minute and all these teams take precious time.
    good luck to all:)

    I think its stupid.
    You shouldn't be allowed to reserve a club in a GC when the world is created, let alone before its even be announced.
    As Gold members, you pay for the privilege to control a team in these so called 'elite' game worlds. You knew it would be all about buying youth and selling deadwood, with some good but outrageous deals going through between clubs. It's fantastic. But whats the point now when the big clubs have all been paid for maybe even weeks before the world is out.
    They're should be one at most every month, and clubs shouldn't be allowed to be reserved, I used to love the rush I got, frantically clicking and closing waiting for a world to open. Its all gone.
    I get SM is a business and all, trying to maximise profit, but this is a joke.

    Utterly taken back by whats happened in SM over this last week.
    I've been playing SM since 2006 - always found time to enjoy the game regardless of which team in whichever GW i managed.
    In a space of a week or so SM literally has changed profile, shape and gone from being a business happy to go along regardless to a cut-throat high profile business where money means 1000000% everything.
    5 new Gold Championships in 1 week including today, 2 in the space of 6 hours!
    At one time Gold Championships were the top, best, unique GW in SM, a Gold Championship was opened every 6-8 weeks and then each Gold world opening was looked forward to an eagerly awaited the opening of new Gold worlds. That spark has now gone.
    2500 credits to 'reserve' a top club in a Gold world - roughly £12-£15 to have a Barcelona/Real Madrid/Man City/Man United. Easily now to find that the same manager with money to burn could if wanted end up managing an elite club in every Gold world opened.
    With SM's total lack of contact/communication from the owners to us, the paying customer..... Cheating within GW's is now, possibly at it's highest it's ever been..... SMFA a poor program which blocks 100% honest, good, fair transfer deals between 2 managers. Yet allows Messi to be traded for 2 x 85 players and £10m for example. So many things which need to be addressed with SM. Yet priority is, IMHO selling itself out.
    It's taken 6 years for me to really take a step back and look at SM as a business and say and question what they do or don't do. 6 years of playing SM only for everything which has happened in a space of 7-10 days the way i now view SM is 100% different.
    What can we do? - Stop purchasing teams? stop buying GW's, No, there will always be a high % who will buy and re-buy and purchase the product.
    We can't even express our views in way of constructive feedback back to SM by way of email.- Thats says it all really.

    I prefer Nani than Bale. Nani, despite having only one truly good season with United in my opinion, is still better than Bale.
    Don't get me wrong, Bale is a good player, but he is massively overrated by many, mostly because of one great game against Inter. He hasn't reached the heights of those performances in which he ran Maicon ragged, though. He also rose to 92 too quickly.
    Nani, however selfish he is, has proved he can deliver for United, he still has goals and assists in him. He deserves his 93, though he may not rise much higher, but Bale won't either.
