  1. Re: Help With Deal(s) Thread... Xabi Alonso or Dani Alves? The deal is Alves + 15m for Alonso, but the cash amount isn't too important - got enough of it and mostly only new players to spend it on. I've currently got Alonso, but Alves would play in my first team if I were to go with the deal. Which player would be most likely to stay at 94+ for the longest? Thanks in advance!
  2. Re: Virtual Panini WC 2014 Sticker Album Started a couple of days ago, but just joined the 2nd group now. Going through the fan stickers and put my entire stack up against anything from Ghana, Belgium, Russia, Portugal, Germany, Nigeria, Iran, Bosnia or Argentina. My swap stack is: Eto'o (Cameroon), Ospina, Valencia (Colombia), Echiéjilé (Nigeria), and Algeria logo.
  3. Re: Help With Deal(s) Thread... I've got Pepe Reina, I've been offered Simon Mignolet + cash for him. The amount isn't too important, so which player would people prefer? Thanks in advance!
  4. Re: Help With Deal(s) Thread... Neymar or Karim Benzema + Raphael Varane? Santos team still with Neymar, Benzema would be a direct replacement, Varane would be a massive improvement on Rodrigo Caio. Even ignoring this, would Benzema and Varane still be the best option? Thanks in advance!
  5. Re: Help With Deal(s) Thread... Rafael and Draxler or Luis Suarez? I've got Rafael and Draxler, currently as backups to Reus and Vidal. Suarez would immediately replace Gundogan in my starting line-up, and most likely replacing Xabi Alonso in the long term. I've got Alessandrini and a few other young prospects out on loan to fill Rafael's spot. Are there any reasons not to go for Suarez? Thanks in advance!
  6. Re: Help With Deal(s) Thread... I could buy one of these players: Carlos Mané Yaya Sanogo Neal Maupay Which one would be the best bet for the future? Thanks in advance!
  7. Re: Help With Deal(s) Thread... Matija Nastasic + 20m or Philipp Lahm? I've currently got Nastasic. If I were to sign Lahm, he would replace Michael Carrick in my first team, but he will be replaced at the end of the season anyway with Ilkay Gundogan. Nastasic is currently my 4th CB in a 3-5-2 formation, but my best option after him is 82-rated Jonathan Tah. Neither my team or squad's average rating will change if I went ahead with the deal. Good young players aren't often available, but 20m could still go a long way - I've recently bought Bernard and Emre Can for 11m each. I think I might have talked myself into a decision that Lahm wouldn't improve my team enough to be worth it (and factoring in the cost of buying a replacement for Nastasic -there's unlikely to be a lot of interest in Carrick). Would anyone agree with this, or could Lahm still be worth it? Thanks in advance!
  8. Re: Help With Deal(s) Thread... Tom Cleverley or 5m + Jordan Veretout I've been trying to sell Cleverley as he doesn't make my 2nd team at the moment, and I've got an offer of 5m and Veretout. It's unlikely that, like Cleverley, Veretout isn't going to make my 2nd team either unless he could reach 90. I do have other prospects who would be competing with Veretout in the future, who probably have more potential. If Veretout isn't likely to reach a good enough rating, I would probably prefer to sell Cleverley for cash than take a player I'd have to sell on again in the future, for probably less than Cleverley could make. Another possibly option would be to keep Cleverley and sell Evra. I could play Rafael instead of Evra and Cleverley would replace Rafael in my 2nd team. Which side would people prefer? Thanks in advance!
  9. Re: Help With Deal(s) Thread... Arturo Vidal and Roberto Soldado or Diego Costa, Jack Wilshere and Alex Song? Two separate deals, I've currently got Vidal and Song. Received offers from 2 different teams, Costa and Wilshere for Vidal and Soldado for Song. I'm only going to accept 1 of them. Song is a player I've been looking to sell, Soldado would replace Vela in my first team. If I went ahead with the deal for Vidal, Vela would still be replaced, and Wilshere would be a direct replacement for Vidal. If I went ahead with the deal for Vidal, I would have Vela and Muriel as backups so Soldado wouldn't be needed. I think I know which side I'm swaying towards, but which set of players would people prefer? Thanks in advance!
  10. Re: Help With Deal(s) Thread... Matija Nastasic, Emre Can and Hakan Calhanoglu or Philipp Lahm? That's not the exact deal, but I've got an offer to swap Nastasic and Nuri Sahin for Philipp Lahm. Lahm would go into my first team initially ahead of Isco, but would replace Pepe when Isco gets to 92. Have Varane on my bench so it's unlikely Nastasic would be a guaranteed first choice player in the near future. I probably would have accepted this already, but I've currently got a counter offer out on Nuri Sahin that could bring in Emre Can and Hakan Calhanoglu, but if I did that it would be unlikely a deal for Lahm could be found. So would people prefer the 3 players or Philipp Lahm? If it's Lahm, I can forget about the Sahin deal and go ahead with the bid for Lahm. Thanks in advance!
  11. Re: Respuesta: Help With Deal(s) Thread...
  12. Re: Help With Deal(s) Thread... This one seems quite obvious, made a decision but just want to check I'm not missing anything: Manuel Neuer or Iker Casillas + Asier Illarramendi? Illarra isn't likely to get in my first team anytime soon and wouldn't until/if he reaches 93, and if 3 or 4 probably better prospects don't get there first. Neuer the sensible choice? Thanks in advance!
  13. Re: Help With Deal(s) Thread... Mario Gotze or Falcao and Kurzawa? Which side would people prefer? Reasonings are on the last page, think the actual question might have been lost in too much text! Thanks in advance!
  14. Re: Help With Deal(s) Thread... How likely is Thomas Muller to keep his Centre Forward position? New Bayern team, I've been looking to bring in a natural centre forward alongside Mandzukic on the grounds that if Bayern do get Lewandowski as rumoured, Muller wouldn't get too many games up front. I've got an option to bring in Falcao (and Kurzawa), but it would cost Gotze. Checking that Muller has 3 games this season at CF on transfermarkt and Lewandowski wouldn't move until the summer (if at all), Muller would be capable of playing up front until at least the start of next season, and could never lose that position. Those thoughts aside, would Falcao and Kurzawa or sticking with Gotze be the better side of the deal? Thanks in advance!
  15. Re: Help With Deal(s) Thread... Toni Kroos or Arturo Vidal Which player would people prefer? I'm thinking despite Vidal's current form, Kroos' minutes for Bayern and Germany could see them at the same rating by the end of the World Cup, and has a better chance at reaching a higher rating in the future? Thanks in advance!
  16. Re: Help With Deal(s) Thread... Got a choice between Leandro Damiao or Doria and 6.6m I do have a need for both players, but can only go for 1 of them. Damiao would get into my first team straight away (ahead of Kleber), but I do also need a long-term option at CB. Based on immediate need, Damiao seems like the obvious choice but I'm a little bit uncertain about his lack of goals and lack of involvement with the Brazil squad. The average rating of my team would stay the same with either player. I would probably prefer whichever player's likely to move to Europe first, but I know Doria's just signed a new contract so not sure whether that'll be soon with him either. The 6.6m probably could be used to fill a couple of other gaps in the not too distant future. Which side would people prefer? Whilst I'm asking, because another manager is still bugging me about this, would people prefer Neymar or Rooney & Aubameyang? I've decided to stick with Neymar because I really don't like Rooney, but just interested to see if it is as unbelievable a deal as the other manager is making out. Thanks in advance!
  17. Re: Help With Deal(s) Thread... Got a deal I'm a bit confused with. I would be selling: Kieran Gibbs for Lucas Fernando and Eduard Sobol from Shakhtar. In normal circumstances I'd probably sway towards the Shakhtar duo. I still have Nacho Monreal at left back (it's a pretty new Arsenal team), and Arteta, Wilshere and Ramsey would at the moment be ahead of Fernando at CM. Are Arsenal likely to have Gibbs as a definite #1 left back this season? Are Fernando and Sobol talented enough to do the deal regardless of Gibbs most likely being more useful to me in the near-to-mid future? Thanks in advance!
  18. Re: .:Gold Championship 366 Thread:. Arsenal look set to make £44m from the sales of deadwood (Flamini, Bendtner, Diaby, Rosicky and a pre-agreed deal for Park). £17m of that will be re-invested into Yoann Gourcuff. Petr Cech is set to become the new #1, sending Szczesny and Campbell in the opposite direction.
  19. Re: Available GC Teams (This is NOT a Discussion Thread) There's a very good Newcastle United squad available in GC171. Best players include: Draxler, Lukaku, Feghouli, Alex Teixeira, Ba, Krul, Mario Fernandes, Ginter. Bids are in, and have been a few times - club keeps getting offered out so would be great to get a good manager for a quality young squad. Manchester United would be very interested in the first 3.
  20. Re: Help With Deal(s) Thread... Got a deal I'm tempted to do, just looking for some 2nd opinions. I can give: Lars Bender, Matija Nastasic and 10m for Vincent Kompany Bender is currently in my 2nd team but been looking to sell him to bring Marco Verratti into his position. Matija Nastasic doesn't make my 2nd team but I've been trying to sell Howedes to fit him in. Alonso, Carrick, Vidal and Gundogan would be ahead of Bender both now and in the future. Vidic, Ferdinand, Howedes and Varane are currently ahead of Nastasic. I'm thinking if I complete the deal, Kompany will take Nastasic's place as Varane's future CB partner a lot quicker than Nastasic will, even if he will get a rise in the next changes. The deal would allow me to sell either Vidic or Ferdinand, which should bring in more than the 10m in the deal for Kompany. With that in mind, should I go for Kompany? Thanks in advance!
  21. Re: Help With Deal(s) Thread... Currently got two bids in for Fabio Coentrao who I'm looking to sell, ideally to bring in depth at CB (instead of 84-rated Nacho) as Marcelo is my 1st choice LB. 1. Micah Richards & Gael Clichy 2. Phil Jones & Alexander Buttner I'm thinking Jones would be the better long-term option at CB, but I know very little about City's defence. Considering it's a CB I need, does that make up for Buttner most likely being worse than Clichy? I've also got some reservations about dealing with the United manager, he had pulled out of a similar pre-agreed deal (Fabio instead of Buttner) this morning unless I gave up the Spain national team for him in exchange for 2 youth players. Is the 2nd deal good enough to forget about that? Thanks in advance!
  22. Re: Help With Deal(s) Thread... Got another tough one, would people prefer: Lahm and Kroos or Varane, Isco, Carvajal and Fabio Coentrao Lahm would be a great improvement on my first team, but depth would take a hit at CB and LB which are the positions I've always found hard to buy for in GCs. Kroos is the sticking point in this deal for me. He's not going to play ahead of Schweinsteiger, Alonso or Ozil (or Modric who I've got on the left side of midfield), but by the time Alonso eventually drops to 93, I'm thinking Isco could be around that. Depth at CB isn't great already, it would leave Nacho (or possibly N'Koulou who might be signing) as the best backup and very few managers are selling even CBs peaked at 89 or 90 unless they get Varane or Illarra plus another player, so it's very unlikely a long-term replacement for Pepe would be found. Would it be fair to say there aren't many young players in world football, if any, who look more like a 93+ player in the not-too-distant future than Varane and Isco, which is what I've been basing negotiations on? I think I've talked myself into a decision, but will leave this open to see if anyone agrees! Thanks in advance!
