  1. Re: .:10000 bc:.





    After a relatively quiet transfer period in Mineiro (compared to all other seasons), they have managed to acquire the world's best goalkeeper, Neuer and midfield pair De Rossi and Di Maria.

    We have some change in Mineiro after last years quiet season. Our primary target is to get back in to the SMFA Champions Cup, but we also have first place in our sights again. We have a strong squad of players, we just need to deliver on the pitch. In Neuer we have the best keeper in the league and with Kompany in front of him we should be conceding few goals, we just need the magic at the other end of the field. Our midfield is also a different look this season with Juanfran, De Rossi and Di Maria in the line-up, I'm sure their quality will shine through.

    ^Lukelufc on the new line-up.

    It has been sad to see Ribery, Bonucci and Cech go; they were top players for Mineiro, but we need to keep changing players to keep the ball rolling and hopefully gain some momentum. It is also true that tonight is Ayew's last game for the club as Sao Paulo have met our transfer demands. We wish Andre all the best at his new team. Of course there are rumours about other players leaving, lots of people talking about Pastore, Rafinha and Poli but for now I have no further comment other than saying our transfer demands for other players have not been met.

    ^Lukelufc on outgoing players.


    Expected line-up:


    Rafinha Kompany Boateng

    Juanfran Hernanes De Rossi Candreva Di Maria

    Aguero Ayew

    Subs: Jankovic Henrique Pastore Marquinhos Poli Martinez Dzemaili

  2. Re: .:10000 bc:.


    Following the cholera outbreak and uncertainty surrounding whether players will join or not, Mineiro have refused to give any names of their transfer targets. They have however released a set of cryptic images:

    .:10000 BC:. Season 7 Preview (aka 994 BC)

    It takes a tough manager to battle on in this setup, with many people leaving clubs. This season is likely to continue to test managerial wits; will the newcomers out-do the oldies, or will experiences help out the long-stay managers? Here's some of the key players up for grabs tomorrow:

    (and my predicted values - assuming new managers go wild with their money and lack of experience ;) )

    Bale (£48m)


    Muller (£46m)


    Reus (£39m)


    Kroos (£31m)


    Strootman (£17m)

    Jovetic (£17m)

    Pjanic (£18m)

    Sturridge (£23m)

    Gibbs (£18m)

    Azpelicueta (£24m)

    Aubameyang (£26m)

    Sakho (£19m)

    Damiao (£16m)

    Nailbiter in the Division 1 survival battle. Only 1 goal separating Man U and Dortmund. Which way will it go?


    Schalke' date=' Valencia and Porto battle it out for the remaining 2 promotion spots.[/b']

    Moscow, Gladbach and Sao Paulo are still in the spotlight for the

    Division 2 relegation fight,

    but amazingly Barcelona could still go down if results go against them!!



    Leverkusen, Lyon and Malaga go into the last day trying to fill the 2 remaining promotion spots.






    Barca can't go down as the teams 3 points below are playing each other :P

    The CSKA Monchengladbach game is HUGEEE

  5. Re: .:10000 bc:.



    An apparent cholera outbreak in Mineiro has led to several players leaving the club with very short notice. Early reports suggest three key players have left and so called "disposable" players are being flown directly to the club's stadium. Additionally a local player, of reasonable standard is also meant to be joining.

    Reports suggest that key play-maker, Modric, is one of the players leaving Brazil. Additionally central player, Marchisio has been seen flying towards central Europe.


    Here's what the manager had to say:

    "Well it is unfortunate, but there are some things which we cannot control. I cannot guarantee to the fans who will be left tomorrow, or the day after. I can guarantee that we have won the league and that this is a time for celebration. Hopefully we'll have some income from these deals because we will need a new play-maker. I imagine however, we are going to have to pay upwards of £50m for our target and there may be some vulnerabilities left in the squad. Hopefully this epidemic will soon be over and we can convince most of our players to see this out. It will certainly be an interesting squad we field against Basel on Thursday, but still, this fixture is unimportant for us."

  6. Re: .:10000 bc:.

    Thanks! lol

    I'm going to place imaginary £2 bets on:

    1 - Chelsea (top 3 finish) 5/2 = £7 return

    2 - Dortmund (relegation) 3/5 = £3.20 return

    3 - Aguero (top goalscorer) 4/5 = £3.60 return

    4 - Malaga (champions) 1/2 = £3 return

    5 - Benfica (last place) 5/6 = £3.67 return

    Total bet = £10. Potential return = £20.47 :D

    Soon as I open my big mouth I get turned over by bottom club Marseille.


    Soon gonna need a bus to catch Mineiro



    Also, Pretty sure you can't change the GW once it has started mate, but you're doing a good job filling it!!

  9. Re: .:10000 bc:.

    Mineiro literally ripping league apart.

    Record amount of wins in a row - no draws all season.

    Least goals conceded.

    Only scored 1 goal less than top team in the league.

    7 points clear of 2nd, 13 points clear of 3rd.

    Sorry about everyone leaving, I'll try and do worse next season :P:o

    Please stay in, it's a great set-up!

  10. Re: .:10000 bc:.



    Mineiro beat rivals Man. Utd. 1 - 0 in Mineiro after Man Utd's main striker was given his marching orders towards the end of the match and will miss their next game against Dortmund. The winning goal was scored by Robinho who had been subbed on just minutes before. Can Mineiro achieve higher than the 3rd place prediction for the league?

  11. Re: .:10000 bc:.

    Guide to Season Six

    Division Two


    More players out than in at the start of this season, but a couple of top players in Matic and Paulinho. The squad has some great quality, but the depth is fairly poor. (if you exclude good young players) Can they return to Division 1?

    Key player: Gerard Pique

    Prediction: 2nd

    Man. City

    No changes whatsoever in city due to the ban for overspending last season. But. . . did they really need anyone? A very strong squad for Division 2, can they return to Division 1, as a top player.

    Key player: Thiago Silva

    Prediction: 3rd


    Managed to sell a bad player for a lot of money; they have brought in some okay players and popular grosskreutz. Squad is okay, a couple of top players but the quality soon sinks. They will be hoping for a top season from Ronaldo.

    Key player: Ronaldo

    Prediction: 5th


    Only welcomed in Ben Arfa from Arsenal this season at what some people would describe as too expensive. The quality across their depth is consistent, but will it be enough to gain promotion? They will certainly need top management.

    Key player: Hulk

    Prediction: 11th

    CSKA Moskva

    Nothing happening in CSKA, no transfers this season. A very small squad, with only one top player in Pedro. Will need some fortune to stay in Division 2.

    Key player: Pedro

    Prediction: 12th

    Bayern Munich

    Surprisingly still unmanaged, despite being a top team with a reasonable squad. But a very small squad, who will struggle if anything happens to Cavani.

    Key Player: Cavani

    Prediction: 7th


    Two key players arriving in Lewandowski and Hummels, but a shocker to fans as top player Van Persie left the squad as part of the Lewa deal. Barca are a big squad with big revenue and they have some top quality. Clearly a team which belongs in Division 1, but can they improve from their poor mid table finish last time.

    Key Player: Lewandowski

    Prediction: 1st


    Brought in some reasonable players, most notably Sahin. Had help from Man. Utd selling Montano; if only other top teams would help those struggling for funds (wondered other managers). They have some top players and could challenge for promotion.

    Key player: Xavi

    Prediction: 4th


    Brought in some depth, but at high prices. They have a very big squad with good depth, but will the top XI quality let them down when it really matters?

    Key player: Iniesta

    Prediction: 8th

    Sao Paulo

    Added some depth to their defence and midfield. They may still be too reliant on Soldado upfront and their goalkeeper is very poor. They will need some fortune or a new goalkeeper if they have any aspirations of back to back promotion.

    Key player: Dani Alves

    Prediction: 9th

    Inter Milan

    Cesar sold at a great price, a good, but not spectacular replacement in Mignolet and a great signing in Subotic. Also many shocked fans when the signing of teenage wonderkid turned injury flop, Kerlon was announced as a new player. A small squad, which also lacks in quality. Will be in the relegation battle. There have also been repeated attempts to sell Eto'o to no avail.

    Key player: Subotic

    Prediction: 10th

    Real Madrid

    Big money spent on Mata, but huge income from a poor player in Britos. Madrid have some very very good players, but the quality is weak in depth. They will need some strong performance from Neuer in goal.

    Key player: Neuer

    Prediction: 6th

    Don't have time to do Div 3

  12. Re: .:10000 bc:.

    Guide to Season Six

    Division One


    Made some fair moves on transfer day; bringing in a good attacker and a defensive option; with hernandez and ranocchia. Still appear to be missing a key player / play maker in the middle of the field.

    Won the league last season by a big margin. But the side are average in comparison to the rest of the league. Can Sow repeat his influence of last season?

    Key player: Moussa SOW

    Prediction: 6th


    Some incredible work by the management to bring in Ozil, Marcelo and Mkhitrayan. Possibly the best all-around squad, and certainly the most valuable of all squads at the beginning of season 6. Certainly added the midfield strength previously outlined. Can they improve on last seasons second place?

    Key player: Mesut Ozil

    Prediction: 1st

    Man. Utd.

    Not as much transfer activity as expected from Utd. They had deals for big players pulled at the last minute and only really managed to add Javi Martinez to the side. They're usually fairly competitive in the league and have some key players, but less quality in their depth.

    Key player: Schweinsteiger

    Prediction: 2nd


    Added some depth to the squad, usually p/e deals as previously rumoured. Drogba being bought in has come as a surprise, as well as the departure of Zaha. Only minimal spending by the side, perhaps still troubled by their extortion over Evans.

    Key player: Wayne Rooney

    Prediction: 5th

    AC Milan

    Good players signed at very good prices. Surprise departures in Moutinho and Casemiro however. A really strong squad has been created, with additions such as Sanchez, Howedes and Asamoah.

    Key player: Higuain

    Prediction: 4th


    Nothing exciting for Marseille fans on deadline day. Eventually sealing a deal for Bony; adding to already their strongest department - upfront. The team is going to struggle with their lack of quality in an ever improving league.

    Key Player: Edin Dzeko

    Prediction: 11th

    A. Mineiro

    Added the key striker they needed in Aguero, in addition to a bargain on Coentrao and some Brazilian depth in Anderson. Fans will probably be happy with the signings, but they may be concerned about the ever growing wage budget. A very strong squad with a good selection of back-ups. Will this be their season?

    Key Player: Sergio Aguero

    Prediction: 3rd


    Managed to sign a good striker in Diego Costa, fans may have wanted a little more from PSV however.

    They have very good depth and some quality, but their team is fairly average and getting older.

    Key player: Diego Costa

    Prediction: 10th


    It was a final day miracle for Dortmund to survive last season and again their fans will have had an early night on transfer day with no changes at all. They have some great players in Ibra and Y. Toure; but will they be able to keep Dortmund afloat this season?

    Key player: Ibrahimovic

    Prediction: 9th


    Only managed to sign Defour and many teams would say that they paid too much for the player. This side has fair depth, but is weak compared to the rest of the league. Will they be able to ride out on the joy of being in Division 1? Or will they return instantly to Div 2?

    Key player: Gerrard

    Prediction: 8th


    Only brought in much sought after defender, J Boateng. They have added to the area where they needed some quality and can Chelsea surprise the league with a good run of form?

    Key player: Oscar

    Prediction: 7th

    FC Basel

    Busy transfer day for Basel; bringing in some much needed quality. However, no key player. They were lucky to be promoted last season and they will need to be lucky again to survive the division.

    Key player: Cabaye

    Prediction: 12th

  13. Re: .:10000 bc:.


    Atletico Minerio 4 - 0 Arsenal

    Mineiro triumphed over Arsenal in their friendly fixture. Both Aguero and Coentrao made their debuts and both managed to add their names to the scoresheet.

    It took Sergio Aguero just 15 minutes to score his first hat-trick for the club.:D

    Hopefully a sign of things to come for Mineiro, who have a squad good enough to challenge for the Division 1 title.

  14. Re: .:10000 bc:.

    Who wants who? Division 1 Transfer preview



    Having destroyed the rest of the league with a not-so-special squad, they're sure to have some spare cash.

    Likely to want to improve all areas of the squad. Don't be too surprised to see bids on A strong play maker, a good attacker or some good defensive options. Will SOW be enough next season?


    Fair squad, done very well to achieve second place. Likely to want to improve with a strong midfield option. Lots of transfers this season, so don't be surprised to see many changes to the squad.

    Man. Utd.

    Have spent big this season, but with an income the size of theirs; expect Man Utd to be in with the big bids again (why else did they sell Pedro). Squad has some incredible players, but their strength is contrasted with some weaker players. Likely to want to add a new option in defence and probably a striker too. Expect to put in a big P/E on Lewa. Man Utd's history suggests that they will place lots of bids and hope to get some bargains.


    Already spent a lot of money this season. Lots of squad change again, they have brought in some back-up players to bolster numbers. So there is potential for p/e deals coming soon. Likely to want to add players to their below-par midfield.

    AC Milan

    Have already spent BIG this season, bringing in a great squad. If they have the cash, they may want to add an extra defender for some depth. They have also brought in some extras, so they may also want some p/e deals.


    Nothing too special about this squad; probably playing on a limited budget compared to some of the big teams. They have a great strike force, but could do with some more magic further back down the field. Expect a new defender.

    A. Mineiro

    Already got many players 90+, but as a small team with the worst attendance in the division, on top of their worst season under this manager. Mineiro's budget may be limited. They need to add a special player, possibly as a winger or upfront.


    Hardly spent a penny. Expect a bid on a couple of big players and expect at least one to arrive. They need a bit of magic in a star player to bring them up the league table. No obvious areas requiring new players, but a play maker or target man is likely to be desired.


    Bought 1, sold 0. Pretty boring season if you're a Dortmund fan on the transfer front. Very fortunate to have survived relegation - maybe some excitement there. Two key players in the squad in Ibra and Toure (bought at a bargain price). Need to add some depth in the squad. Will Howard remain the goalkeeper? Sure to have a big budget to spend.


    Had an end of season meltdown, but still won the league. Added plenty of depth last season. But the starting XI will struggle to compete in Division 1, with only 3 players in the 90's. Rumour has it that p/e's will remove some of the depth and add some real quality. Bolstering needed squad wide, especially defense.


    Transfers in 7, Transfers out 9. You may think the upcomers would be packing the cash, right? Wrong. Probably. Transfers costing £49m this season, likely to have limited funds. But they have a great squad of mostly 20 somethings with great youngsters. Need to add a new player in to the defence and midfield; if they can afford it.

    FC Basel

    Great end to their season and Basel are back in Division 1. Clearly had some administrative errors previously, with a 25 man squad with 9 substandard goalkeepers. Nobody is quite sure how such a poor squad has returned to Division 1.( but that is the wonders of soccermanager) The squad is in need in all areas except gk and possibly midfield. They need something special to survive in Div 1. However, definitely packing the cash. Likely to have made at least £40m this season due to promotion and transfer sales. Expect a busy day in Switzerland tomorrow.

    Excluding the 25 year olds; here's a few people already on the market, when teams inevitably fail to hit their target or overpay on flops:
















    Van Persie

    (Haven't got time to do other divisions)

  15. Re: .:10000 bc:.

    Luke Lufc steered Atlético Mineiro to victory against Leverkusen.

    Atlético Mineiro outclassed Leverkusen and beat them 5 - 1 in a thrilling Friendly encounter.

    Robinho scored a goal and was later voted Man of the Match for his performance.

    Shame it was a friendly...

    Mineiro also started the bidding on Sidney SAM, for no reason other than to get another team to fork out some cash before the big spend :D
