  1. And the site and gameworlds are down again! And on a Saturday too, brilliant ...
  2. Gameworlds still down. Thought days like this were over.
  3. 8 pages of complaints I see Good on you SM, always breaking records, whether it be your income or how pissed off you can make your customers be when you prat around with stuff that doesn't need touching Money talks I know things have to move with the times etc, but this is tragic! Bring back 2007 when SM was amazing, didnt care that the site was shut whilst results were being done, added to the excitement!
  4. Season 7 - An Update! Been a while so here goes! Last season was certainly one to forget! Manchester City went on to win the title at a canter, securing the title with 93 points and scoring an incredible 131 goals, and winning 29 of their 38 games. Not a lot we could do about their imperious form and we finished runners up and 14 points behind. On the European front we were dumped out in the semi finals against Shakhtar 6-3 on aggregate. So season 7 we had to do better! The season however started terribly. A 5-2 drubbing at home to Fulham, closely followed by a defeat to rivals Chelsea. Fortunately for us City didn't start to well either and after 19 games we are currently 2nd behind unmanaged Liverpool and City have already lost games than they did in the whole of last season Current Table 1 - Liverpool 40pts 2 - Man United 39pts 3 - Chelsea 39pts 4 - Arsenal 37pts 5 - Man City 37pts 6 - QPR 37pts As for Europe, we go into tonights final group game with player hogging Boca Juniors already qualified. We are currently top with 11 points, just above Olympiakos who are on 10 points. SMFA Cup - Group H 1 - Man United 11pts 2 - Olympiakos 10pts 3 - Benfica 5pts 4 - Boca Juniors 1pt Domestic cups, Stoke City knocked us out of the Shield in the 5th round on penalties. Could do better is certainly the feeling so far! Fortunately Ronaldo and Sturridge are hitting the back of the net!
  5. Thought I'd pop back on the forum as it was end of season and saw the in game post about awards, but did not expect this!! What the hell! Although in saying that SM loving breaking things, I mean "improving" things that need not improving Thumbs up SM for ruining something else!
  6. Re: English Championship 7046 Discussion Thread Setting up a 3-5-2 with instructions of who gives a crap and will just check back twice a week. Sick of the same thing over and over.
  7. Re: English Championship 7046 Discussion Thread Another even game another loss. Not gonna be our season I feel
  8. Re: English Championship 7046 Discussion Thread A cracking read there Dan, still got to spread the rep! I've also done a little write up in regards to my Leeds side. http://forum.soccermanager.com/showpost.php?p=3066114&postcount=2527
  9. Re: English Championship 7046 Match Report/Tranfer Gossip Thread Key Cog In The Leeds Machine Has To Leave Leeds United fans waved goodbye to a clearly emotional Jese Rodriguez as his loan spell with the Yorkshire side was cut short in order for Sunderland to complete a deal for soon to be bench warmer Yacine Brahimi. It is not the first time Sunderland have hindered Leeds progress after having a deal for Hugo Lloris all but finalised to then have it taken away from them in the last few moments, and this latest episode could well crush any relations that may have remained between the 2 clubs Jese will now play his football at Bristol Rovers, and having starred in a Leeds shirt it is a shame the deal has taken place just 13 league games in, and even more gut wrenching for Leeds manager Joe Robinson and the Leeds fans is that it happens just days before the crucial clash with table topping Sheffield United. Joe Robinson: The Spaniard thanked the club and it's supporters for their continued support in his time at the club, and that he wished he could continue the push to take Leeds back to the Premier League. Instead he will now be competing in the bottom tier for mid table Rovers, something that will really hurt the ambitions of the Jese. Jese was quoted as saying Yacine Brahimi's place at Sunderland awaits him.....the bench
  10. Re: Gold Championship 188 Thread Man United 1-4 Shakhtar An embarrassing night at Old Trafford. An encounter in which we created more attempts sees us spanked in our own back yard. Walcott scores in debut but all in all a frankly pathetic display from United A season to forget
  11. Re: Gold Championship 188 Thread Nottingham Forest 0-3 Manchester United With the first teamers being rested for Shakhtar on Monday night it was an impressive performance all the same. United bossed possession and scored 3 good goals thanks to Milner, Carrick and Martinez. Another deal has been agreed for United, and it will see Theo Walcott come to Old Trafford with Shinji Kagawa and Glen Johnson going to Arsenal. After the embarrassing manner of how we surrendered our title to City we needed to rebuild and that means plenty of players are leaving, and new blood will be coming in!
  12. Re: English Championship 7046 Discussion Thread Leeds 4-0 West Ham So we get lucky. 4 efforts on target and 4 goals, gotta feel for West Ham in a pretty even game!
  13. Re: English Championship 7046 Discussion Thread Palace 2-1 Leeds Always nice to lose to an unfit side who are bottom of the table where the manager hasn't logged in for 20 days! Dominated all the stats except the one that matters most. Adebayor did at least score on debut. To say I'm hacked off is an understatement.
  14. Re: Gold Championship 188 Thread Rapahel Varane Looks Set To Join Manchester United Within days of landing Cristiano Ronaldo, United look set to land French centre half Varane from rivals Chelsea. The deal is yet to be concluded and yet to be officially announced by both clubs, but sources suggest the deal will be finalised tomorrow morning.
  15. Re: Gold Championship 188 Thread Cristiano Ronaldo Returns To Old Trafford This morning saw former Manchester United superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, return to England and at Old Trafford. The fans favourite will most certainly be welcomed back with open arms, and looks set to go straight into the side for the home fixture to Queens Park Rangers. Departed: Angel Di Maria & Radamel Falcao It was a hefty price tag with Angel Di Maria and Radamel Falcao and £10million cash for the recently turned 30 year old, however with Ronaldo a proven talent in England and Spain, no one will really doubt if he will hit form for United next season in their pursuit of regaining their Premier title from rivals City. With the departure of Falcao it means that Daniel Sturridge and Jackson Martinez look set to gain a lot more game time in a United shirt, with many fans happy with this outcome.
  16. Re: Gold Championship 188 Thread So nearly 3 months since last posting! Having fought well to catch City in the league we went on to lose 3 fixtures in a row, the last of which was against City themselves and we have all but surrendered our title with 5 games to go as we our now 13 points off top. Along with that bad period of form we were knocked out of the FA Cup by Aston Villa, who were also one of the sides who defeated us in the league to put a halt to catching City. Some good news is that we have progressed to the Semi Finals of the SMFA Cup after defeating Villarreal (5-0 agg) and Chelsea (2-1 agg) We now face Shakhtar with Bayern and Barcelona taking on eachother in the other semi final. On the transfer front it's been rather dull. With barely any managers responding to requests, bids or general queries it's hard going. James Milner, Will Hughes, Fabian Delph and Felipe Anderson have all joined from externals, bulking our squad further to compete on all 4 fronts. But the most exciting news is that Cristiano Ronaldo will be returning. This afternoon a fee was agreed with the new Real Madrid boss. Angel Di Maria and Radamel Falcao and £10million cash will be going to Madrid. A good deal for both sides I feel, especially the Spanish side not having much squad depth, but since trying from Day 1 in August 2012 we finally have Ronaldo back where he belongs!
  17. Re: English Championship 7046 Discussion Thread A 1-1 draw at home to Swindon Tempted to just set up 3-5-2 and not bother signing in for a few days, seems to work for a few others. Still cannot offload the donkey Llorente, and starting to slip away from the top 2. All positivity here at Leeds....
  18. Re: Available GC Teams (This is NOT a Discussion Thread) A cracking Villarreal in GC 100 Chiellini Benzema Mata Lavezzi Mandanda Luis Felipe Ilkay Gundogan Adil Rami Mauricio Isla Dusan Tadic A good side there, Inter have a bid in on Chiellini but would love to arrange some proper deals.
  19. Re: English Championship 7046 Discussion Thread First defeat of the season tonight for Leeds 3-2 loss at Manchester City, gutted to have lost when looking at the stats we deserved at least a point, but tonight Ronaldo and Messi showed up. Hard to swallow defeat for me personally, i'm too competitive! Even more so when your side performed the better and created the most chances, but congrats to City
  20. Re: English Championship 7046 Discussion Thread Leeds 0-0 Northampton Pleased to take a point in an even game against a side who for me after Man City should walk games with the quality of their side. Unbeaten in 9 games now, and up next it is Man City.
  21. Re: English Championship 7046 Discussion Thread That's the spirit! Leeds win 2-0 away at Blackburn, considering we only had 2 shots on target it is a massive win. But considering we had 62% of the possession we really should have made more than the 8 efforts we created. Llorente didn't feature and we scored goals! Says it all
  22. Re: Official Manchester United Thread Only really signed to help the youth team Following quote is from BBC Sport by Simon Stone
  23. Re: English Championship 7046 Discussion Thread the only thing is, I get many people claim to be chatting on the chat in game, and frankly it's useless. Nothing ever pops up, I look at chats and messages aren't there, so in terms of chat cannot always have a go. PMs are different. But when it comes to in game offers, some managers work differently. I've been moaned at for waiting a day I think it was People are different, some sit on game all day, some can only pop on when they can and may not get the time to reply to a message. Alls fair in love and war!
  24. Re: English Championship 7046 Discussion Thread Certainly tempted to just accept the cash from Juve for Llorente!
