    Well done SM, well done.
    After years of growing with the game, I have finally witnessed its demise. The pursuit of monetary gain has subsequently exploited and killed off SM's one unique selling point. After browsing through the forum (on one bored night clearly!), it just hurts to see how so much has changed and how the need for new ideas to increase clientele acted as the sword that pierced through its own heart. Many valuable members have left and no points for guessing why, especially if you witnessed SM 3/4 years ago, even before that (Ever since its inception in 2005).
    I do feel upset seeing the state of the game come to this. The forum doesn't feel the same anymore, the relationship between users is different. There is no more sense of community, no friendship, nothing.
    Just a quick post as a former Gameworld moderator...
    It's been a total pleasure playing for so many years with individuals who I deemed to be my own friends; seeing their names pop up everyday on the forums and inbox; it genuinely did feel like home. It's sad to see the game come to this but a business is a business, and money is money.
    To everyone still addicted to this game, you guys are the lucky ones. Enjoy it while it lasts. Peace from this old timer however.
    I'll be back one day, to you know, check up on everyone

    GC16 - Stevenage off to a flyer!

    Newly promoted Stevenage stormed to the top of Division 1 tonight after a 7-0 home win over Everton. Aleksandr Bukharov grabbed his first hatrick of the season and new boy Ángel Di Maria also netted twice whilst grabbing the star man award.

    Lol I wouldn't class my myself as "best in the world" but point taken
    I might be able to loan you a keeper for the same lenght of the season as you lent me a striker for the season

    You have spent a fair bit on SM by your own admission so the loser who wanted loads of cash is doing a rip roaring trade
    The amount of gold members has dropped considerably in the last month and as with anything people get bored after all when was the last exciting thing to happen on this game?? Was probably the reserve a club feature which has been well and truly hammered.
    They don't even do anything to cheats these days just remove them from clubs and let them continue their antics in other setups.
    I took over Fenerbache in the early hours when i got up for a drink, told my nephew who took over Galatasaray so least i know in this GC i have some sort of challenge. The transfer market is very inflated these days makes for a lack of transfer dealings on my part.

    FC Porto Overview
    Following the appointment of Daniel Walmsley, Porto have wasted no time in moulding their team into a squad of players capable of challenging for honours on both the domestic and European scene...

    The first arrival at the Estadio Do Dragao was 24 year old Portuguese centre-midfielder Manuel Fernandes from Spainish side Valencia. The fee was a hefty £16 million, a price the club were happy to pay.

    Next up was Portuguese keeper from title rivals Sporting CP for a fee of second-choice keeper Beto and unneeded Tomas Costa.

    The final piece of business conducted so far was the arrival of combative defensive midfielder Alexandro Song. Arsenal gave £5million and the Cameroon 22 year old for Fernando.
    Porto are now looking to offload Helton and Christian Rodriguez...

    Its been less than 24 hours, how utterly ridiculous.
    How on earth are people allowed to continously ( and thats the important word here ), get away with this. SM need to address this issue, we shouldnt have to come up with the idea how, thats what they get paid for, alot of the ideas that get implemented are produced from members, SM should try sorting this out themselves. Everybody bar club hoppers hate this kind of behaviour.
    What do they want, a petition with 100,000 + signatures on, people have always complained about this since its creation YET they have done nothing.
    ENOUGH is ENOUGH

    It does make me laugh looking through the last few pages of this thread all the talk of Lukaku....
    Id put my mortgage on it that 95% of the members of this forum have never ever seen him play, all the fuss stems coz he is 16years old or whatever and IMO that means next to nowt.
    Age is such an issue for some people its untrue....
    1year in a players Real life equates to 3 and a bit SM seasons and most people who I see discussing deals cannot stay with a team for 3weeks yet alone a year....
    People alwys seem to start planning for a long term future when in 90% of the peoples I see there is next to no chance of them hanging around with the same team to possibly see someone like him max any potential he has....it find it very very strange.

    Gold Championship 111 - Internazionale - It is reported that Internazionale and Barcelona have come to an agreement for Xavi Hernandez and Andres Iniesta. Internazionale have been known to overpay in their transfer dealings and so it wouldn't be too surprising to see that the Italian champions are giving away 4 of their finest players. Whilst a bid for Xavi Hernandez has been accepted now, there is a Pre-agreement for Midfield maestro Iniesta where he will arrive at th Giuseppe Meazza in June once the transfer bans are over. Internazionale's midfield will now undoubtedly be the best in the world come June when Robben, De Rossi, Cambiasso, Xavi & Iniesta will be playing alongside each other.
    Maicon & Julio Cesar are now made available and will like a replacement (91+) and a player in any other position. Get bidding guys.

    Gold Championship 108:
    Received my first job offer since my return in Gold Championship 108. Estudiantes offered me the job but I don't think any team in that Gameworld can make me quit Manchester City. Only a week and a half since the setup was created and I already managed to build a brilliant squad with the likes of Gourcuff, Schweinstiger, Demichelis etc. Even if Barca/Madrid came along, I probably wouldn't quit. England is the place to be in Gold 108.
    Played in the SMFA Shield yesterday against Dinamo Moskva and came away with a good 3-1 victory. Diarra bagging two (His third in a City shirt!) and Gourcuff scoring on his European debut for City. My strikers are yet to get into the score sheet but hopefully that'll change soon. I feel that I have the squad to win the SMFA shield but I'd go for fourth spot over the SMFA any day.
    Wayne Bridge is available for cash. Don't know how much a chairman would value him but I'd say around £15,000,000 - £18,000,000 would be the max a chairman would be willing to go in some cases. Get bidding guys.
    Robinho is still available. Made a counter to Mr. Hamer but he seems to have disappeared again He's not doing me any favours by giving Chelsea Navas & Fabiano:mad: Robinho can leave if there is a 90+ LB involved as that's the only position where I'm weak.
    Play Birmingham today and Kalinic starts. The conditions of the players is already starting to deteriorate and so wouldn't be surprised if there us a shock result. Resting Chamakh, Robinho, Montolivo and my hitman Diarra

    How comes the sudden change of mood? Setup is dead? Not enough time?
    You can't just lose interest in a team for no reason. It's because of managers like you who then leave top clubs ruined in other people's eyes because you come in, do some transfers and then inevitably lose interest.
    In a few days, you're gonna join GC110 and then after 3 weeks (Maybe less) you're gonna lose interest and that's the main excuse you'd probably have.
    This ain't a rant but before you see a decent/top club available... Don't just take over for the sake of the club... Take over because you know you'll be able to implement your time and effort into it. I'm not one to talk about managing a club for the long term but the rapid increase in managers leaving clubs is astonishing. All I see on my news feed is these numerous forumers quitting Barca's and United's because they lost interest or no time... Someone like Dai, SoP or Adam have around 2 GM's to manage all these teams and you don't see them quitting because they lost interest... Maybe the setup YOU GUYS lost interest in could be a very active one for some forumers.
    Fix it up lads
    Edit: This is directly aimed at you... But various members of the forum mate...
