  1. Re: New Finances (Loans / Contracts) Two things stand out for me. Firstly, the 'upcoming leagues to be reviewed' needs to be brought back to help smaller clubs, well all clubs really, to make money from risers. Secondly, what we might now see is managers join/stay with a team with excellent players and no real short-term need to buy, and then when they do need new players, leave with them massively in the red due to the huge wage bill. Nobody else will then want to take them over Along with some of the other good points raised so far, it seems like some decent ideas haven't been fully thought out and have been implemented too soon and without consultation with members.
  2. Re: juan mata or di maria???? Well someone has to have the opposing view so I say Di Maria. He'll be back to his best before too long and Madrid will be challenging for the title and Champions League for a while yet. Chelsea? That will all depend on who the next manager is. I think there is more risk with his club so because of that and the fact that I don't see Mata passing Di Maria's rating anytime soon (matching it in a year is likely), I would stick with Di Maria. Either way you have an excellent player.
  3. Re: why no notice???? Well it will probably divide opinion a little but in the main will probably be met with derision on here.
  4. Re: why no notice???? Strange. If they are reviewing it, is that a first where they have done so without even putting the league on the 'Leagues Currently Being Reviewed' list?
  5. Re: why no notice???? What makes you think they are reviewing it?
  6. Re: What is the highest average rating you can have for a team? Barcelona in one of the Spanish GWs I am in has that team but with Dani Alves instead of Fabregas. I am still above him in the league though and he keeps trying to buy my players, telling me I have all the best ones. Weird.
  7. Re: Who will be the next best? Neymar, Gotze or Hazard?
  8. Re: Who will be the next best? Neymar, Gotze or Hazard? Are you sure?
  9. Re: Who will be the next best? Neymar, Gotze or Hazard? Oh I will. I will mark them with thick black marker so I never have to read them again. He'll "cut it", I have little doubt about that.
  10. Re: Who will be the next best? Neymar, Gotze or Hazard? Never make what exactly? A paper aeroplane that flies to the moon? Your dinner?
  11. Re: Paul Pogba Pass the bong mate.
  12. Re: Paul Pogba Hard to know who you could compare him too. He is pretty unique to be honest...in a very good way. I'll be surprised if he doesn't go on to be one of the best midfielders in the world at his peak.
  13. Re: EURO 2012 Talents Even Johan Cruyff.
  14. Re: Oliver Norwood I go to every reserve home game so saw him against Newcastle and I agree, he absolutely ran the show, even outshining Pogba who is an absolute beast at that level (will definitely go on to be world class if he stays injury free and his head on the game). I was ****** off that the idiot who wrote the match report on United's website hardly gave him a mention just because he didn't score or directly assist. It was as dominant a midfield display as you ever see from Scholes or Xavi (relative to the level and oppositon of course). I'll be very disappointed if he doesn't get a crack at the first team at some point. Jones, Smalling, Fabio and Cleverley all played in the last home game and none of them looked anywhere near as impressive at reserve level as Norwood did that day. He looked like he had been to La Masia to learn the game - all ball retention, calmness, awareness, pinpoint passing and tight control. Apparently the Northern Ireland manager said he is the best prospect he has seen at that age when he first played for Ireland (I assume he meant for Ireland). We might be trying our best to keep Pogba, and rightly so, but I would make a lot of effort to keep Norwood too, at least until he has been given a chance at United. Not sure we will, but here's hoping.
  15. Re: Loan Player (Moral Dilemma) If it's a loan that is already set-up (ie a real life loan deal) then I don't think you can send him back can you? They certainly can't be recalled so I assume they can't be sent back either.
  16. Re: Only 8,421,997 in prize money for winning the league, G-Boot + Player of the Seas I've won loads of leagues (and top scorers etc) and never won more than that.
  17. Re: Snapping up rubbish players! Possible risers perhaps?
  18. Re: Real Life Clubs Not Bidding Yeah I noticed that too. Looks like I will have to take them off the transfer list.
  19. Re: Real Life Clubs Not Bidding Sorry I forgot to add that I am getting lots of bids, just not from their parent clubs. Transfer fee is just the minimum. I wouldn't have thought this would be a problem anyway because parent clubs used to always bid the highest of computer-controlled clubs.
  20. Has anyone else noticed that the real life clubs of players you put on the transfer list no longer seem to bid? If they do then they certainly aren't doing as quickly. Over my 14 teams I have lots of players on the transfer list but none of them are receiving bids from their real life clubs anymore. Has anyone else noticed this?
  21. Re: Not Enough Evidence you say..... That's so obvious you almost have to laugh.
  22. Re: Patrick Bamford - Forrest Forward He's signing for Chelsea for £1.5m apparently.
  23. Re: Farfan for Cazorla Personally I would rather have Cazorla. He's good enough to play for one of the very best teams in the world.
