  1. Re: Official Red Devils thread Thursday nights, Channel 5 Thursday nights, Channel 5!!
  2. Re: Bundesliga Risers, Talents & Droppers 2010 Sorry to be picky, but Sarpei is already 86 Nice list though. Hope this thread is as good as the 2009 one.
  3. Re: Official Red Devils thread Happy with that. Bayern in the QF and if we progress the winner of Lyon v Bordeaux in the Semi's. Think we got very lucky, especially when you see what Arsenal were landed with Still woulda liked Barca, but then again I suppose there's Arsenal and Inter on that side of the draw who could give 'em a decent game. I'm plumping for a United v Inter final EDIT: The Draw in Full: Lyon V Bordeaux (QF1) Bayern V United (QF2) Arsenal V Barcelona (QF3) Inter V CSKA (QF4) Semis: winner of QF2 v winner of QF 1 winner of QF4 v winner of QF3
  4. Re: Official Red Devils thread Nice to see Hargreaves got 45 mins unscathed: http://www.manutd.com/default.sps?pagegid=%7BF9E570E6%2D407E%2D44BC%2D800F%2D4A3110258114%7D&newsid=6647425 And also, Champions League QF & Semi's draw this morning, anyone have any preferrence as to who they get? Wouldn't mind CSKA as they were average at best in the group, although the travel is a bit of a pain, other than that either Lyon or Bordeaux seem the "easiest" draws. Would like Barca in either the QF or SF though, think we stand more chance over 2 legs against them than in a one-off game.
  5. Re: FIFA 10 Official Thread They're not always that bad. TBH, probably best gambling on them this week due to the reduced prices. 5000 coins as opposed to the usual 7500 for a premium, normally rake back at least 1200 on discarding the players (unless they're Pato of course ) get 2/3 contracts (which normally sell for about 400 each = 1200) and a couple of injury things which come in handy when the muppet you're beating in the semi decides he's gonna try and injure as many as possible of your players. They're actually not that bad value @ 5000 as opposed to 7500, don't think I'll be buying many after tomorrow
  6. Re: FIFA 10 Official Thread Tell me about it. Best I've had up to now (ratings) is Petric, and the most valuable (although only about 1k) is Raul. Couldn't believe it when I saw it! Not wanting to rub it in, but he's goooooood Especially up top with Lavezzi and Quagliarella in behind, working a treat up to now, with Vucinic as a backup I'm over the moon with that front line EDIT: Sorry, most valuable was Aquilani in a Gold Pack, he was a duplicate though and I had himn already so it doesn't count I guess!!
  7. Re: FIFA 10 Official Thread My faith in gold packs has been restored....... PATO!!!!!!! well that's Cassano's replacement sorted :D:D:D:D
  8. Re: Official Gold Championships Discussions Thread Had an ok night last night, only this of any significance to report: GC 77 - Port Vale guarantee their promotion from Div 5 after a 3-2 win over 3rd place Darlo. Resigned to 2nd tbh, 5 points behind Wiggles Rotherham side with 2 to play. GC78 - after the mother of all comebacks in the 2nd half of the season, which was a combination of luck and a good run of 6 wins and a draw from the last 7 Bayer Leverkusen miss out on the title by GD, finishing level on points with Bayern, but Bayern's +22 was too much for my mere +14. Was an excellent season to be involved in, 6 teams could still have won it on the last day.
  9. Re: FIFA 10 Official Thread Won the St Patrick's cup again last night, decided to sell Cassano as he's pap! Just can't play with him. Anyways, winning it for the 2nd time made my mind up about the 2nd squad and I've now started the La Liga and any other Spaniards to go alongside the Serie A and any other Italians side. Here's the two squads: Italy/serie A: Manager - Ancelotti Handanovic Zambrotta Nesta Legrottaglie Vargas Cambiasso Aquilani Quagliarella Giovinco Vucinic Lavezzi Subs: Montolivo Juan Stankovic + any spaniards that need a fitness boost by sitting on the bench for a game Spain / La Liga Manager - Benitez Kameni Miguel Marchena Pique Mathieu Banega P Hernandez----------- Simao-- Romaric L Fabiano------- Forlan Subs Vicente Kanoute Bojan Perotti Iraola M fernandes Keita Marquez Quite happy with how it's going atm, gonna do the prem next, but holding off as the prices are most inflated for them atm. Did alright assembling the Spainish squad, I was after Fabiano and Pique as definites, went and watched a few auctions on each and Pique was coming out at between 12.5 and 13.5k, and Fabiano between 13-15k, so decided to check for some decent BIN's on them, got Pique for 8950 and Fab for 9950 - supoyb
  10. Re: GC19 discussion / rumours etc thread Had a game message saying one of my players had a position/rating change today, and no-one did Anyways, the reserves beat AZ 5-3 away from home to move up to 3rd, 3 points off PSV. Hoping the league form picks up after the SMFA Group stages when the first team are let off the leash in the league, no domestic comps after last week's humiliation
  11. Re: FIFA 10 Official Thread Well managed to win the final of the St Pat's trophy. decided to start my 2nd squad (La Liga/spaniards) and with the winnings bagged Forlan for my new squad and Cassano for my original Italian/Serie A squad. Hoping to repeat tomorrow
  12. Re: GC19 discussion / rumours etc thread Congrats on the first 90 Think I'm taking your place as the perennial bidding war loser, bar Warnock I've had nothing lately TL'd 19 y/o AM/LM Naoki Yamada after his rise to 85 today, only one cash bid up to now (just over CV) but I'm looking for something a little more substantial. First decent offer will be accepted.
  13. Re: FIFA 10 Official Thread anyone on the ps3 got any Italians or Serie A players to sell, looking for a good CB primarily. Have a little stack of coins, nothing special EDIT: I see that big bonus has brought out the big boys for the St Patricks day tourney, just played a semi against an amalgamation of Barca and Real. I was dizzy by the end
  14. Re: GC19 discussion / rumours etc thread Will keep it in mind, and if nothing else surfaces before tomorrow I may take you up on it. Cheers pal.
  15. Re: FIFA 10 Official Thread Don't have a dream team as such, but decided that my main aim is to go for Serie A players / Italians from wherever. As it stands: Manager - Ancelotti Goalkeepers: Handanovic Amelia Defenders: LB - Vargas LWB - Riise RB - Grygera RWB - Zambrotta CB - Nesta CB - Legrottaglie CB - Juan CB - Bochetti Midfielders: CDM - Cambiasso CM - Aquilani CM - Montolivo CM - Marsichio CM - Inler CM - Asamoah Attackers: CAM - Giovinco CF - Rossi CF - Lavezzi CF - Quagliarella CF - Mascara ST - Vucinic I play 4-3-1-2 that's why there's no wide men btw. Still nowhere near the funds to compete for the likes of Pato and Chiellini yet, but that's the aim. The St Patrick's online tourney (on the ps3 anyway dunno about Xbox) could be a big help. 2.00 multiplier and a 10k coins win bonus
  16. Re: GC19 discussion / rumours etc thread I see where I went wrong with the Shakhtar gaffer then - I offered p/e Not to worry, couple of irons in the fire atm, see what comes of them. BTW while I'm on, anyone got a RB as high a rating as poss I could borrow for 3/4 games until I've got Van Der Weil fit again? And..... I got beat on pens last night by NEC, gutted. Strongest side available was out and everything.
  17. Re: GC19 discussion / rumours etc thread Just picked up Steven Warnock for 11.475m, happy enough with that although it was more than I wanted to pay. Had a CV bid in as only me had him on my s/l, then RDFC jumps in - had to go max chair value in the end, which even then I didn't think I was gonna get him as it seemed very low. My problem area of defence seems to be looking up
  18. Re: GC19 discussion / rumours etc thread James McFadden (86 wing/fwd) at Ajax if you're interested pal
  19. Re: Bundesliga Risers, Talents and Droppers 2009 "Kuba" is a nickname used for him, simply because his name is too hard to write down or pronounce! On SM, he's BLASZCZYKOWSKI, Jakub
  20. Re: Official Gold Championships Discussions Thread Managed a win and a draw up to now, I'm aiming to get a playoff spot. Had one of the worse squads in the division, so hoping to do the best with what I had. Managed to get rid of dead wood (only one dropper in the squad when it was reviewed) and managed to bring in some solid low-mid 80's to do me the season.
  21. Re: Official Gold Championships Discussions Thread Just had my LM loan signing nicked from me in GC100 today ray also Anyone with an 82+ LM gimme a PM. EDIT: I'm Avai btw
  22. Re: GC19 discussion / rumours etc thread Well the bids is in. Gonna leave me with next to nothing so to have money to pay wages for the next couple of away games first person to offer me 3m for Simon Cox (worth a punt, could be a PL player next season) can have him.
  23. Re: GC19 discussion / rumours etc thread And so it starts eh? Not bothering with the players being scrambled for today. Have my eyes on 2, maybe 3 which after a bit of consideration I think will be the best for me over time. Good luck to all bidding on "today's players"
