  1. Re: {UKFSC} European Super League 2 - Discussion I'd like to take Real Madrid unsurprisingly (if I may)
  2. Re: The Intercourse, General Banter Thread. When is someone going to do a table for the worst managers, so that me, Tom (Erdenay) and Andy can see our names in shining lights?
  3. Re: Official Manchester City Thread That's one of the knock-on effects I'm expecting long-term along with more pay-as-you-play contracts. Also still got a sneaky suspicion we may have some player somewhere along the line challenge the validity of their contract when they are not being able to ply their trade. Mentioned it on another thread, but we may end up with a new ruling ala 'Bosman' or 'Webster' whereby a player will look to cancel their contract as they are not being allowed to do what they signed for - play football. Maybe we'll have the 'Bellamy' ruling come into force in the next
  4. Re: SMEL Cup - Year 1 Draw / Schedule Just been looking at the schedule and wanted to propose a couple of things for consideration for the later stages (not sure why I'm looking down there as I don't see my team in at that stage for the first few competitions at least ): 1. I noted the semi-finals are currently set as 9W v 10W and 11W v 12W. This in theory means you could meet a team from your initial group in the semis. I think it would be nicer if you could only meet again in the final, personally. That can easily be recitified by making the semis 9W v 12W and 10W v 11W (or even 9W v 11W a
  5. Re: Official Liverpool Thread Presumably that's 7m for the club and 7m for his back pocket, if past experiences are anything to go by (allegedly )
  6. Re: SMEL Drafting thread Rapid decide to draft in the youngest player on their roster - Alessandro Fiore Tapia . I'm old enough to be his father
  7. Re: Which players would you take to the Ashes? You left out Collingwood on that list which I'm assuming was an oversight and presumably he'd take the place of Bopara in that squad. Other than that, as Andy says the squad picks itself and I've highlighted in red the positions up for grabs so to speak. I'm particularly worried about the opening slot. Whilst Strauss (along with Trott) has looked the most assured batsman in the side, Cook has looked woeful. His confidence looks shot and I can't think of a better time to get him out the side and let him try and get that back before the Ashes wi
  8. Re: SMEL Cup - Year 1 Draw / Schedule Don't know if I'm the only one being a little dense here , but I would appreciate a little clarification on the referees issue. Some of the descriptions are self-explanatory, but what does 'an absent-minded referee' entail, for example. Would he forget he's booked players or miss his assistant's offside flags, etc? Also what do the numbers in brackets mean? e.g 2 out of 5, 1 out of 15 etc. Is this just for you guys (commissioners) to randomise the officials for the games or is there some significance for us? I can't be the only one to be confused by th
  9. Re: SMEL Drafting thread Rapid select Grzegorz Sandomierski
  10. Re: SMEL Drafting thread Rapid select Marek Suchy
  11. Re: SM Elite League - Discussion Thread/Sign Up sheet - Negociations/Trading thread. Ooops, sorry mate But I'm glad at least one person had planned to do it
  12. Re: SMEL Drafting thread Rapid throw a real curve ball by selecting David Beckham (assuming he has not already been picked - couldn't see him )
  13. Re: The Intercourse, General Banter Thread. Clearly a fix
  14. Re: Official Cricket Thread That is some statistic. I doubt the majority of players have a ODI ratio of runs in boundaries:total runs which is comparable to that. Although if you think about his style of play, I'm surprised it's not higher
  15. Re: The Intercourse, General Banter Thread. I don't think it's Treason, it's just showing a sharing caring attitude. They do they say 'Love thy neighbour'. I'm sure your team-mates will be of the same thinking and will happily allow you to pass on such information (which remember they have disregarded in the first place)
  16. Re: The Intercourse, General Banter Thread. In future, send your writings to me, Tom. I assure you I will pay attention
  17. Re: SM Elite League - Discussion Thread/Sign Up sheet - Negociations/Trading thread. With the first draft now reaching it's conclusion and probably most of us having selected all the players we will be playing in the first few tournaments in reality, I'm a little disappointed no-one has selected themselves yet . I'm a little bit past it, but otherwise would certainly have done so . Surely one of us is young enough or has enough footballing ability to get into our 40-50 man squad
