  1. Adrien Rabiot or Callum Chambers. I have Rabiot and they are asking for Bastian Oczipka along with Rabiot for Chambers. I don't really have a need for Oczipka and I have Paul Pogba, Marco Verratti, Johannes Geis and Granit Xhaka ahead of Rabiot right now. I'm patient though so I just want to get a feeling of who people think will be the better player in the future.

  2. Guide to Reducing Wages

    Does anyone know if a player will reduce their wages after you've settled their concerns once and for all. I have a player on my team that is a starting 11 player but because it took so long for that to happen, and I would just keep addressing their concerns, they are now making $500,000 a week. Will that naturally go down every time I have to sign them to a new contract or are they stuck at that level permanently?

  3. Re: Help With Deal(s) Thread...

    I'm looking long term here I need to lower my roster size and I've decided to cut ties with 2 89 rated CB prospects.

    Who should be the one I keep

    Joel Matip

    Phil Jones

    Kyriakos Papadopoulos

    I'm leaning toward Papadopoulos as the guy to keep as I feel he has the most overall potential.

  4. Hi

    I recently took over West Ham in Gold Championship 1. Today I received a PM from another manager informing me that the manager before me sold the clubs best players for cash and quit. I looked in the All Transfers section and it doesn't give me the option to report illegal deals. Is there a way of going about trying to get these deals reversed?

  5. Re: Help With Deal(s) Thread...

    Would you accept a deal of money + Wesley Sneijder for Kaka (The amount is small it was enough so that my chairman would approve it).

    I'm thinking about doing it, I feel Kaka's' best years are behind him and he will probably start to head down the rating charts whereas Sneijder is a solid 95 and has potential to go up to a 96 in the next 2 years.

    Is this a stupid deal?

  6. Hey do you think a deal of 8M plus Jack Wilshere (Arsenal, 18 years old, 85 rated) is good for Paulo Henrique Ganso (Santos, 20 years old, 86 rated). Short term I believe it's a good deal as Ganso could go up to 89 in the next ratings but long term who is the better player?

  7. Hey I'm in EC3

    I have received a counter offer for Balotelli

    Mats Hummels + Thomas Muller + 5M for Mario Balotelli

    Would you do this swap?

    Ballack (94) + Arshavin (94) for Aguero (94)

    I'm more in it for the long term as I've been managing this team since late 2005.

    He also has Villa and I'm considering asking if he would do the same deal but for David Villa instead of Aguero. Would anybody say that is better?

  9. Re: English Championship 3

    Long time manager of Sheffield United, Pierce Joneson, made a surprising but much needed move today to solidify his core team.

    Leaving the club were United veterans GK Guillermo Ochoa (190 games, 6 mom's) and Chaves Fred (124 games, 40 goals, 38 Assists, 14 mom's)

    Coming to the Blades was Darlington regular Hugo Lloris (315 games, 17 mom's)


  10. Re: Samuel Eto'o

    I agree a 97 for Eto'o. He's clearly the best striker in the world right now. And as I recall he only went down to a 96 because of injury. Since he's been back he has regained his old form so doesn't that automatically merit a raise back to a 97. Another player that reminds of this scenario is Michael Ballack who went down to a 92 because of injury but is now back to playing like his old self for both club and country. personally i feel Eto'o should return to a 97 and Ballack should go back up to a 95 (I know he used to be a 96 but that's a bit steep seeing where Chelsea are in the standings).

  11. Re: Luca Toni

    I think after today's performance it is safe to say that without a doubt he deserves a 95. SM should do the right thing and put him up NOW. I know its the English ratings right now but I don't see the issue with moving one player up. He deserves it.

  12. Re: Chelsea Rating Changes 2008

    SHEVCHENKO was dropped by 2

    quite hard he fall and it hurts :(

    people workshiped him in Milan but now....

    before he turned into 92' date=' what is his rating?[/quote']

    If you are asking what Shevchenko was at when he was with Milan then your answer is 96.

  13. Re: Ribery

    Well I'll respect your opinion, but I don't agree with it and I think you'll be hard pressed to find a lot of forumers who would agree with your statment.

    The statment being

    Ribery = 93

    Van der Vaart = 93

    Diego = 93

    Luca Toni = 94

    Joe Cole = 94

  14. Re: Ribery

    Well Yanker, I want you to know that is what I have been saying all along.

    Why did Ribery get a 95 and not Luca Toni? and not other Bayern Munchen or German League players.

    That is what I'm trying to figure out. I would have not questioned Ribery's raise if Luca Toni got one and maybe Diego or somebody else got one.

    I was and it seems now that so were you under the impression that Bayern Munchen would not have gotten any 95's because they were not in Champions League. So I was shocked when he got one.

    Not because I didn't feel he DESERVED IT, but because I was told no player competing in Champions League would get over a 94.

    Ribery is not playing in Champions League.

    So my original remark was Ribery deserves a 95, whether or not he is playing in Champions League. But so does

    Luca Toni


    Van der Vaart


    and Joe Cole deserves a 94.

    Yanker at the end of the day we might not agree on everything and I'm done trying to convince you that the Bundelisa is not **** and you didn't convince me that it isn't or that the EPL is the undisputed number one league.

    So we will just have to agree to disagree. And leave it at that.

  15. Re: Ribery

    Funny thing about this thread is that there is even a comparison between the english league and the german one....because if you have any logical reasoning at all you know its england (im not english).

    Disparity? sure one top team that is a mile ahead of the rest instead of top four and then yes after that you get a more level playing field because they dont have teams good enough to make it less level...bad league simple as that

    The funny thing about your comment is that you missed the point of my comments by a mile. I have never once stated the German League is better then the English' date=' Italian, or Spanish. Not once.

    I will repeat myself cause it seems people just don't get my comments.

    [b']"I have never once stated the German League is better then the English, Italian, or Spanish. Not once."[/b]

    And yes its better to have one top team then four and if you don't know why then you might want to take a simple economics course. Or did you just skim my posts and not read it fully cause I just can't believe how someone can say that.

    If the English league has 4 good clubs that are always taking up the 4 Champions League spots then they get ALL THE MONEY.

    If the German league has 1 Elite team and they only take 1 of the spot of the Champions League spots that leaves more money for other teams.

    This makes the other teams better.

    Here it is again

    "I have never once stated the German League is better then the English, Italian, or Spanish. Not once."

    Cause I figured you might need to read it three times to get it.

    What I'm stating is basically the German league is good enough to have 95 rated players. And most people agree with that cause that has nothing to do with the English rating system. It has no effect on the EPL.

    Somebody made a comment if Franck Ribery is a 95 then Joe Cole should be a 96. Their reason for this was that Joe Cole plays in the EPL. That's their only reason. I have yet to hear any other reasons. Other then he is having a good season. No stats have been giving to me. Nothing. I simply said Joe Cole should be a 94, a raise of 2 from his current 92 rating.

    Yanker and now I'm assuming you, Mark, feel that the German League is ****. But the problem is other then just stating your belief you haven't given any reason for it. Nor have you given me any facts proving the German League is **** and that the English league is the greatest thing to grace this world. And until somebody does nobody will take anybody arguing the your side seriously
