  1. Re: English Championship 7777 - Discussion Thread Apologies to the people that messaged me on SM about a job offer i had received, i have been away for a bit over a week and was unable to access SM to know i had been given the offer and to reject them early for one of the people who messaged me, hopefully you are able to join the GW in the near future.
  2. Re: English Championship 7046 Discussion Thread Hi Everyone, Just wondering is there still a waiting list to sign up to for this GW. I took quite a few months away from SM after a number of my teams were deleted by a friend one of them included Doncaster Rovers in 7046 (managed for over a year i think) and after picking up some random teams from other GWs and getting a couple back from others i lost the love for SM but in the last week or so ive been active near enough every day and have re found the love for the game. So if its possible would love to be on the waiting list for a side in h
  3. Re: English Championship 7777 - Discussion Thread Been a bit of a rollercoaster ride for results since taking control of Burton again not too long ago. Unlike in my previous spell i have had real trouble getting the 4-2-3-1 too work causing losses in my previous 2 games (before last nights result) so tested out a few different tactics and find that 5 across midfield is serving me well compared to other formations. Considering the side only had 1 win and 2 draws in 22 league games before i joined i am happy to have won more than i have lost Played - 11 Won - 5 Drawn - 2 Lost - 4 That i
  4. Re: English Championship 7777 - Discussion Thread Just been looking through the player market to see whats going on as i have rejoined Burton Albion after the last manager left. As i was going through i was checking certain players to get an idea of the transfer listed price when i clicked on a player i had bought before with Burton so thought why not have a look at his price range. As i clicked on it i suddenly said to myself "erm ....... erm ......... :O" Genuinely speechless and not sure what to make of this for many reasons. Not sure if it has been mentioned on here before or not bu
  5. Re: English Championship 7777 - Discussion Thread Brentford 0 - 3 Chesterfield 3-0 win over in form Brentford pushes us back into the play off positions. Jonathan Viera made his debut and capped it off with a goal and the MOTM performance. I was delighted to sign Viera, i am not fully sure on how he did for Vallecano on loan this season just finished but i remember watching him in pre season for Valencia against Everton and in the first half he looked a class above so i am hoping he continues to live up to his potential.
  6. Re: |English Championship 30000|Discussions/MRs Thread Hi everyone, I have taken the Chester job that i saw had become available earlier, i apologize if there was a waiting list but after checking through a few forum GWs for a few days i had just noticed the club free here so took control. I love lower division challenges so i have a good track record for sticking around. Unfortunately not long ago it did look like i left a few forum GWs but that had nothing to do with me and involved a drunk friend with a knowledge of SM and my password which is always a bad combo. This Chester job is go
  7. Re: English Championship 7777 - Discussion Thread pretty much the same' date=' with the england game on completely lost track of what day it was this week and then realised at 8.15 that it was too late luckily for me though we managed to win so it didnt turn out badly after all. ------------------------------ [img']http://www.fm-base.co.uk/forum/attachments/football-manager-2010-club-competition-logos/104520-new-logo-chesterfield-634.png[/img] Been happy with my start to life with Chesterfield, dissapointing result in the cup the other night in which i didnt fully do my homework a
  8. Re: English Championship 7046 Discussion Thread Hi everyone, Similar to what i posted earlier in the 7777 chat, i am unfortunately no longer in this GW out of no choice of my own, so if a team becomes available i would love the chance to rejoin the GW. If you wish to find out the reason behind me no longer being in charge of Doncaster click the link below to what caused me to no longer having any teams when i logged on earlier today; http://forum.soccermanager.com/showpost.php?p=2908688&postcount=30891
  9. Re: English Championship 7777 - Discussion Thread Don't worry about it man, these things happen and serves me right for leaving my laptop with my mate Luckily i logged on at a good time as Marcos had a division 4 side on offer so i snapped it up instantly and i am just glad to still be in the set up, i will admit myself with being away a few times and not being on much i was neglecting the chelsea job from the minute i took over so i am just glad that despite what happened its gone to a good and respected manager. I intend to be move active again now and have renewed my gold membership a
  10. Re: English Championship 7777 - Discussion Thread Hi lads, I have been away for a week and after just logging back on today i have found out that a friend of mine thought it would be "funny" to deactivate my account which had saved my details on the log in page . Turns out he was to drunk to remember how to deactivate the account (he used to be a member himself) so went for the next best thing and deleted all the remaining clubs i had on SM. Although i hadn't enjoyed SM for a couple of months i had no intention of leaving the gameworld that i had been in for almost 2 years and was planning
  11. Re: English Championship 7777 - Discussion Thread Been a while since i posted on the forums, put up a message a week or so ago about transfers after this season has ended and other things. Despite being away for a little while ive managed to get Chelsea into a play off spot against Southampton, it should be a good match and depending on how the next game/games go may decide how many of my current players i keep because keeping the likes of ronaldo, iniesta, ramos etc... on the wage bill for another season in division 2 just wouldnt be possible (already 28 million in debt) Have to say though
  12. Re: English Championship 7777 - Discussion Thread Benzema brace seals first win for McColl Chelsea 2 - 1 Aston Villa A 2-1 win ended a 3 match losing run and helped McColl to a win at the first attempt since moving from Burton Albion. Chelsea went 1-0 behind early on but 2 goals from Karim Benzema and 2 assists from Cristiano Ronaldo ensured a home win in McColls first game in charge. Although the performance noted good possession for Chelsea there will be a debate over the amount of chances the opponent had to equalise including an effort which was given as offside. McColl had this t
  13. Re: English Championship 7777 - Discussion Thread I have decided to accept the job offer from Chelsea and moved from Burton Albion. It was a tough decision because you become attached to the side you have so i didn't want to leave Burton however the Chelsea job is too big to turn down. The players they have are more than capable of being in Division 1 and arguably should never have ended up in Division 2, so i hope i will be able to help get promoted back to the top Division. Transfer wise i want to keep the players together for now until i can get a feel for how we are doing in the le
  14. Re: English Championship 7777 - Discussion Thread If there was a self destruct button available i think its already been pressed by the blackpool manager. If he is being truthful and reported a fair amount of transfers just because his transfer was reversed i can see a number of those managers leaving as its just a childish and petty thing to do. The nearest equivelent is when you were young and had a tantrum then stormed off with the ball so no one else can play. I think what makes it worse is that its caused by a known and respected forumer who is acting like a child, which makes it more b
  15. Re: English Championship 7046 Discussion Thread 2-1 win over Millwall keeps up our good run of form and helping us move up the table. Think i need to have a word with my players though, the amount of 'abuse' they give the ref in the matches the club would be getting regular fines from the FA
  16. Re: English Championship 7777 - Discussion Thread SM no longer makes any sense to me at all, i always thought the highest offer won the deal? :confused: I tried signing Oblak a day or 2 a go and fairly due to chairman values at darlington they beat my full cash 8 million offer so although the valuations can be annoying i have no complaints over that final deal. but today there is no way possible i have lost out on Zacharie Boucher to brighton. I was 100% positive i had the better deal, 5.5 million cash whereas there manager offered 3.25 million and 2 players equalling 1 million extra to so

  18. Re: English Championship 7777 - Match Reports,Transfer news etc. Burton look to youth over experience in difficult times It has been a tough 7th season for Burton Albion following on from 2 seasons in which they narrowly missed out on the play offs. Burton currently find themselves 16th place in Division 5 with questions being asked of not only the under performing players but also of the manager Ewan McColl. However action has been taken at Burton Albion over the past couple of weeks, with more senior players being allowed to leave the club and a youthful approach that Burton had been k

  20. Re: English Championship 7777 - Discussion Thread Been a while since i posted in here and i went through a phase of not enjoying SM anymore so pretty much ignored every team of mine for a couple of months but kept paying the gold membership monthly Took the decision around december that rather than logging on to pay the monthly fee and then just ignore my teams and waste them i got rid of them all except for 7777, 7046 and my first gameworld i took seriously. Since that decision and telling myself i would put the time in that still didnt happen but now im ready to put the work in again
  21. Re: English Championship 27777 - Discussion Thread McColl returns home to Carrow Road After recent talk on being unhappy in his management position at Manchester City after taking over from his job at Norwich City some may say it is not a shock that after only a brief spell at Manchester City McColl has decided to leave and return to his former club. Norwich are currently bottom of the league and have a dissapointing season and it will now be down to McColl to try and turn the teams form around. When asked McColl had this to say;
  22. Re: English Championship 7046 Discussion Thread I will be hoping to put some more time and effort in to my Doncaster Rovers team soon as i have taken on far too many teams at once and when some seasons are finished i will take the decision to cut a fair few of my current clubs and focus on the more active GWs i am in (will be difficult as i hate leaving teams) In a bit of news as has already been mentioned i have done an agreement with Birmingham City to sell Ibai Gomez (who has already gone) for 9 million and agreed to sell Mark Noble when he has the required amount for the transfer which
  23. Re: The Underdog - Version.2 Discussions, M/R's Team and Losers of the turn Well this is frustrating Unfortunately Lichtsteiner has had a rise to 91 which makes him level with my star player Balotelli. At the moment he is still transfer banned till the 28th of this month so is it ok to wait and then sell him if i dont play him in any games?
  24. Re: The Underdog - Version.2 Discussions, M/R's Team and Losers of the turn Birmingham crowned champions of Division 1 Tonight Birmingham sealed there first Division 1 title with a 3-2 victory over 1860 Munchen. After the game fans were seen celebrating on the pitch while the Birmingham City players went up and collected the trophy.
  25. Re: English Championship 28697 Discussion Thread First signing of the second "Transfer Window" for Yeovil and it is the experienced GK Morgan De Sanctis from AS Roma. Although at the age of 36 i think he is more than capable of keeping hold of his 90 rating as he looks to be the #1 GK for AS Roma after starting their 2 opening serie a games. At 6 million he is also Yeovils record signing. Hoping to have some more signings to announce later with defenders being the first part of the starting XI that i am looking to improve.
