    Didn't realise you was in them 2 leagues pal they work well tbh im Everton in prem one has spurs in giants one 

    He he I hadnt put two and two together until I read your description and thought Im in a league like that! what are the chances! I may "match" the formation and players played in real life this year to see how they play! Could be weird.

    Try a road to glory, a team in division 5 and build that from the ground up. You may find more of a challenge in that 😊

    I have rather unsurprisingly created a team of current and ex AFC wimbledon players, when they reach as high as they can get I will allow myself to buy players with parts of my name, or in one case an exact match! then when that runs out of steam I will allow variations of it eg My name is Stephen, so first is stephen cook, stephen ward etc then enda stephens, and finally ettienne (french but probably spelt wrong) and so on. keeps me buying players and winning games!

    I am also in the same league as Vinny where you have the real life teams in a premier league and a new champions league teams set up. Spurs, newcastle, Saints are all free in the prem one and many "giants" in the european one.

    Thats strange I created a record called Back at plough lane coz I couldnt sign in with the old one, then signed in on the new one and it posts like I am still the old one? Im confused

    SWIKI REPORT (20/11/20)

    Very lazy day today for SM only 1 and a half pages but some important players to note.

    The Netherlands 🇳🇱 (Eerste Divisie)

    4 players edited MVV Maastricht, 2 players edited FC Den Bosch, 5 players edited FC Eindhoven.

    Random edits of importance:

    Yousouffa Moukoko turned 16 today which means he’s eligible for Dortmund’s first team. He will definitely get a chance this so is this a premature rise for the teenage sensation? Only time will tell.

    Marcus Fross was among the edits he may see a small rise because he’s been performing well for club and country.

    Moises Caeciedo another player who has been performing well for club and country and could see a rise.

    Joe Bursik a player who Stoke see as a future replacement for Jack Butland, he’s currently on loan at Doncaster Rovers and gets regular call ups for England u21s. He also could see a small rise.

    My guess....

    Youssoufa Moukoko - 67 -> 70

    Marcus Forss - 77 -> 78-80

    Moises Caecido - 76 -> 80

    Joe Bursik - 75 -> 77/78

    Tough to call considering.

    Single player edits: Boston River SC, Bahia, Gremio, Avai FC, Luton Town, Tombense FC, ENPPI, SKA Khabarovsk, Locomotive Tbilisi, Cruzeiro, Albinegros De Orizaba, Hearts (Harry Cochrane)

    Nice to see Joe getting game time (he was AFC Wimbledon before being "lured away" by Stoke before he signed professional terms with us) He looked a bit "dodgy" when he played against us in the first game at New Plough Lane, but very young. And Forss will always score goals, if he is adding passing to his team mates to his skillset then he could be a Forss to be reckoned with!

    Long time player and reader of this forum but only recently started posting. Why are my messages hidden??

    the answer is probably in your statement! Only recently started posting so SM thinks better let a moderator look at what they are posting. either that or you are unlucky and randomly picked for a sample check!

  7. not a SM thing but glad to see that they will allow 5 subs per game in EFL for the rest of the season.

    AFC Wimbledon need that with the covid affected fixture list coming their way

    21/11 Away Rochdale, 24/11 away Gillingham, 26/11 Barrow away (cup) 29/11 Crawley Home (cup?) 1/12 Peterborough Home. 5/12 B Rovers home  8/12  papa johns trophy so will play our kids!

    Phew! 3 away trips in 5 days will be tough.

    Thought I'd try it for a bit of fun SW19. Think it's some way out but there is one formula I just can't change and it might have been nearer.

    wimbledon-SW19-2nd.png

    I tried, I cried, I retired hurt 🥵

     

    I really appreciate the effort, it was worth it just to see Wimbledon 12th in print! We have only once in our EFL league 2 and 1 history (brief that it is) finished above 15th at the end of a season, that was when we finished 7th and went up via play offs. So to be 12th in league 1 is nose bleed territory for us, and in our new home too!

    Hoping no Championship scouts are watching the thread though as he is out of contract in the summer. A typo on kalambayi though! he is 72 rated.

    again a million thanks for even taking on the challenge!

    Marcus Forss (77) has scored on his Finland debut, away to France. 

    He's played 8 times for Brentford this season, exclusively off the bench as the back up for Ivan Toney. He might not get enough minutes to increase his rating considerably in the short-term.

    What's notable though, is that he's scored 4 goals from the bench and he's managed that with just 5 shots, with the highest goals/shots rate in the Championship. Long-term, he's definitely one to be looking at, some serious potential, and certainly at a good place to develop in Brentford. 

    He did the same while on loan at Wimbledon, doesnt pass, doesnt cross, doesnt miss!

    Joe Gomez potentially out for some time now. Alexander-Arnold out too. 

    More minutes incoming for Neco Williams (80) at RB. CBs Nathaniel Phillips (78) and Rhys Williams (73) are primed for more minutes too. 

    With Matip's injury record things are not looking good for Liverpool (even though the transfer window is not far off). 8 league games before Jan (including Leicester next, Wolves and Spurs) and three CL games. 

    I put Neco williams in my Fantasy team by mistake (thought it ws R williams!) might turn out ok!

    Isnt it a bit  of a gamble to sell now with the big 5 reveiw possibly just around the corner. Hopefully nobody jumps onto goncalves as it is a low value teams league so really old players and rising kids seem to be the only players bought! Germany due for review before portugal?

    I would be inclined to do that if you can buy Jakobs back, I’m sure Jakobs will get another rise this season.

    I also watched him against Bayern and he really impressed me considering he was playing the best team in Europe.

    Alright so this manager in my game world lost his club for inactivity and it's been almost a week after that, and his team has lot of exciting talents but it's a competitive gameworld (60 teams)...Here are a few eye-catching ones:

    M Thurram, Boubacar Kamara, Rayan Ait Nouri, Ryan Gravenberch, C stengs, W Saliba, Lassina Traore, E Palacios, Jean Todibo ...

    Who would you go for first? Provided that you I can only get a max of three players AND there'll be definitely competition for each of these players....And none of the players are expensive either.

    So experienced players of this game on this forum, what would be your strategy? Bid first OR wait it out and gauge the competition? Steal a less fancied player instead of maxing out the transfer limit on a better known player and hope you get lucky (others would max out too ig)...

    Also, I wanna know how long it takes for the the highest bid to be accepted? Say it takes 20 hours, what if somebody else BIDS else bids an hour before that the 20 hour period, would it take further time for a deal to be accepted? 

    If so, is it possible to stall a player from being sold to anyone? 

     

    I have found that it appears to slow the process down a bit if you are the first person to bid, then others bid, wait a few hours and then withdraw your bid and put in a slightly different bid, it worked brilliantly once for a player on level 5 concerns a max cash bid from another team collapsed as he played an extra game before bid went through and my just above the minimum bid won the player. Cant say it works every time.

     

  14. Me again. I am looking at raising a bit of cash for new risers and to meet my wages, which of the following (all out on loan as not near my first team) should I cash in on?

    M Pessina, K Tsimikas, E Smith Rowe

    S Benrahma, S Alzate, G Diangana, P Ghiglione

    From my actual playing squad I could also sell one of F Coquelin, Fred, A Ramsey or Delaney as I have a few bigger DM and Ramsey is having a stinker of a run for me, two seasons and never above 6.2 average in the league (he saves all his goals for Europe 4 goals in 6 games at 7.5 per game, he hasnt scored four goals in the league in total in two seasons!)

    thanks for any suggestions

    It comes down to a dice roll between the highest bidders

    yeah I agree, have had many experiments with bidding for players (another manager in a quiet game world wondered the same thing so we would try out one team bid first for one player, the other team bid first for another, same day bid then withdraw it , then new bid followed by other team, tried disclosing the bid, tried hiding the bid. no pattern came out. Then we did the same in a "busy" world to see if we as bigger teams got any preference and no its a complete lottery.

    Currently in a predicament, Aguero is my main striker and won golden boot this season and my highest ever league finish but i am expecting him to get a decrease due to age and lack of playing time at some point...problem is the only strikers 93+ who are available are Aubamayang, Lukaku and Immobile.

    Feel like Selling Aguero for Lukaku is the best choice due to age but I also don't see Auba getting a decrease any time soon. Even is Aguero does get a -1 then he's still higher than Lukaku and equal with Auba.

    What would you do?

    When its close like this decision I always look at the stats in the gameworld itself. How have the others performed? if they are nowhere near Aguero then keep him, dont break what isnt broken, a year or -1 isnt going to suddenly mean no goals. once a goal scorer always a goal scorer. even at 93 I bet he will still be prolific. Dzecko is in two of my game worlds and huntelaar in a smaller world is 4 points off my top players and much much older but still outscores everyone in the league. Only thing you will lose out on is possible cashing in value, but hopefully you win something and get 10m for that and there is your player  cash loss gone
