    Maybe 7046 should've died first so i can get a good league campaign with my Leicester . Never getting a good league campaign in 106 until the forum activities died a little bit so maybe i'll end up bottom in Division 4 as long as this thread is still active

    Re: Guess at next leagues to be reviewed, & discuss SM's review policy........
    Nothing needs amending from my SM guide on how to play the game, it seems:mad:

    Look to buy wonderkids (as there more likely to be updated)
    Focus on players in top the leagues, top 8-10 clubs but ideally clubs playing in Europe. As players at bigger clubs are more likely to get regular votes on SW compared to players from Reading etc.
    Avoid buying players from the lower leagues, unless they fall into the wonderkid category then buy them, as again they'd be likely to be updated.
    If you have players from Chile or South Africa who you have bought in the past expecting to rise, sell them now or do a player exchange. As they will likely just eat up your wages and you won't see any future changes

    The DOUGLAS COSTA show


    Crystal Palace 1 - 5 Fulham
    New Fulham signing Douglas Costa got off the plane from Donetsk, jumped into a limo, got changed, and ran straight onto Fulham's left wing for his debut at Palace - and he didnt disappoint!
    The Brazilian winger had a hand in all 5 goals, setting up 4 (yes 4!) and scoring one himself.
    Get ready for some amazing graphics now!:

    UNBELIEVABLE - BIRMINGHAM SLIP UP AGAIN
    Feeling pretty annoyed with our performances this season but still optimistic enough to do videos as I said I would. Done something little different, nothing special, as you will see a note pad on side on the match engine, me typing what I'm thinking and so on as the game goes on. That side of the video is pretty rubbish. Eventually one day I will turn the mic on and let you hear me swear and cheer. lol

    I'd just like to remind you that there is some swearing on the video as this is a team I'm passionate about. Swearing in fans chants and me typing....sorry in advance!
    Hope you enjoy, and don't forget to subscribe, like and comment.

    In fairness (not that I am one to talk with my aging stars) it's hard to imagine Raul (35)' date=' Chamakh (29) & Park (32) being "a bit too quick off the mark" It's the only reason I buy a gold membership these days. I mean, winning the World Cup in season 7 (8?) is fun and all but really for me having one is all about trying buy a league win Just out of interest though, how come Stoke, Bury & Sunderland (all non-gold) finished above the 6 gold managers in Div 2 last season? Maybe it is just nothing to do with it all? (except when you lose. The same sort of thing as only noticing when the supermarket queue you're in moves slowly?)
    Speaking about buying a win, non-gold member 1, gold member 5. A great win for our boys away at Bristol City. Another storming 2nd half performance and we're back on top

    Blackpool 2-0 Crystal Palace
    Blackpool have put a big foot into the Fina of the Europa League after winning the first leg of the semi 2-0 away from home. Fans were surprised with Spicers team selection after eaving two of Blackpools most creative players in Navas and Nani on the bench. The pair have scored 26 goals and assisted in 26 goals in all competitions this season.
    Raul Meireles and Borges Willian came into the team from Satursdays win over Liverpool, into a 5-4-1 formation.
    Handanovic (91)
    Zabatela (91) Koscienly (90) Garay (90) Filipe (90) Asamoah (91)
    Willian (91) Tevez (93) Meireles (91) Marchisio (92)
    Eto'o (92)
    The decision to give Willian a game worked as the Brazilian opened the scoring in the 29th minute. Claudio Marchisio scored the second goal in the 75th minute, the Italian in good scoring form since his arrival after not scoring all season for Manchester City. In the last 15 minutes Tevez, Marchisio and Willian were subsituted for Vela, Danilo and Taiwo as we sat back to keep the clean sheet.

    End of Season 6


    Annan Athletic


    A decent season by all accounts over here at Annan.
    League
    From nervy beginnings, a 1-1 draw in the opening game against Fife, Annan established themselves at the top of the tree by winning the next 9 games in the league, scoring 29 goals and conceding just 4. That set the tone for the league campaign that would see Annan defeated in the league just three times and sealing the 4th division title with many a game in hand.
    Final League Standing
    Pos-1….P-38….W-26….D-9….L-3….GF-102….GA-32….GD-70….PTS- 87
    With an 18 point gap to second, the team took promotion in their stride.

    Man of the Match : Ferreyra
    In what was an electric away performance Annan dominated the stats, averaging a shot every 112 seconds, Albion were torn apart. Staggeringly, Annan were playing with three injured lads – Rodriquez (Thigh Strain – 3 Weeks), Akhmedov (Bruised Heel – 3 Days) and Wellingotn (Knee Fracture – 5 Weeks).

    Annan…...2 – 3 Barrow AFC
    Disappointed to drop out of the Cup so early, but can’t grumble as the tactics were wrong and the team were chasing the game for large chunks of the 90 minutes.

    A great run in the Shield, only to be undone by a full strength Chelsea – although the statswere very tight and I had 11 shots to their 6, they played almost the entire game with 10 men after Anelka was dismissed on 13 minutes. A fair result tho I think.

    A clean sweep on the accolades for the young Argentinean forward, his cracking season takes him to an amazing 67goals scored in 112 since his arrival in season 2. But it is surely this season that will remain long in the memory.
    Off the Pitch
    Its been a bust time behind the scenes, with a huge amount of work in the transfer market.
    A total of 41 players have arrived at the club, with a total spend of £17.8m having been splashed. With a few left to develop the returns have been decent with those players currently valued at around £50m.
    12 lads also left the club in straight cash deals, bringing £26m into the club.
    With 16 players agreed to leave and 9 to arrive at Annan on Turn One of Season Six the transfer merry go round continues at a pace.
    Purchase of the Season
    Adrian, cost £540k now worth £4.5m having been the most used player this season
    Overall Annan remain the team with the lowest wages on the managed sides in the GBL and I hope to stay that way for the coming season.

    All in all, a cracking return to the GBL after almost a season’s absence. Absolutely love this GW and hope to progress Annan over the coming season towards more head to head games rather than the volume of unmanaged games.

    Cheers again lads for another top season.

    Unlucky, I'm not looking forward to playing Ebbsfleet and at least if we'd been playing each other one of us was guaranteed to go up.
    At least the teams coming down from D1 don't look too tough, although Tamworth coming up from D3 should be right up there in the promotion mix next season.
    On a side note it's annoying having friendlies between play-off matches as just makes it harder to assess fitness

    To be fair it does say that you have won the World Cup in season 8 but as the season has only started you haven't (yet?) won D1 in season 8.
    But like I say there must be a glitch as if the above info is correct then that would mean that you are not the first ever manager to win both D1 title and World Cup in the season...?!

    Some notes/facts
    • Noted down all PL teams wages on March 28th 2013
    • Decided to compare them with todays wages after recent changes
    • 6 Teams have decreased their wages since, 14 teams increased
    • My wages rocketed sky high, and I'm not proud of that
    • Liverpool decreased the most whilst Chelsea increased the most
    • Plymouth and Sheffield United increased quite a lot compared to the rest of the bottom teams

    Torquay bring in some risers, most of who will walk into the starting XI:
    Rising star at Hibs, be interesting to see how he gets on against Celtic in the Cup final on Sunday.
    A big-money signing for us but should be worth it and at just 18 has plenty time to improve on his 80 rating.
    77-rated, Ibanez can play RB or LB and is long overdue a rise.
    Another who I have been waiting a while to rise, the 80-rated D/DM© will have an important role as our midfield anchor man.
    Over 7000 minutes for one of the best teams in Colombia over the last 2 years, the 21 year old D(RC) should be rated higher than 80.
    Skorupski becomes our record signing, he's just turned 22 and since rising to 80 in March last year he has been called up to the Polish team and has played another 3000+ minutes so a rise sometime soon is a must.
    We have a bit of cash left to ideally bring in a 80-rated striker and are pursuing 3 possibilities - after that though we will be finished in the transfer market until our first TB's are up.
    All in all i'm really pleased with how the squad is shaping up!

    HUGH LATIMER EATEN ALIVE BY GREAT WHITE SHARK !!!!

    Latimer tries to fight off the Great White.


    Ken Livingstone Writes.. The soccer world was in a state of shock tonight following news that legendary footballing cleric and one time Shorpe boss Hugh ( are you there Jesus?) Latimer has died after a horrific attack by a great white shark whilst conducting baptisms on a Johannesburg beach. Despite a truly unremarkable career in the lower reaches of the bottom division, Latimer became synonymous with the controversial movement for soccer purity and was widely credited with the destruction of the 3-5-2 formation. Since the end of his tenure at Glanford park and a short spell at Brighton the inspirational Latimer has shunned the footballing limelight instead choosing to embark on a worldwide crusade to spread the 'anti 3-5-2' footballing gospels. Following a successful Asian conversion campaign which saw over 4000 new footballing souls enrolled in the Godly against soccer heresy ( G.A.S.H) movement, 96 year old Latimer had recently embarked on the second leg of his crusade in Africa. Sadly after barely a fortnight on the dark continent disaster struck earlier today when a shocked crowd saw Latimer swept from shore by the huge creature of the deep. Twenty five year old beachcomber Sibusiso Ndebele witnessed the attack and told reporters..


    Before the attack- converts arriving at the beach


    Reaction to the news of Latimers demise was mixed, upon hearing the news Liverpool boss Dan Malone paid tribute to Latimer by saying '' its a sad day, Hugh was a wee bit eccentric but his heart was in the right place, still it goes to show you that you can never trust a Great white, me I hate the bloody things''. Fulhams Dom Latouche and one time disciple of Latimers went further '' I can't believer he has gone, he changed my life forever and everything I have achieved I owe to him, i'm so emotional at the moment''. Middlesbrough boss Jooles Dawson was less complementary '' Wow what a season, first the title and now this.. Latimer was a crank, but now he is dead instead would you like to see my new trophy?''. Dawsons words were echoed by long term Latimer target Man Utds Simon Pluto who quipped '' Ha, Latimer was a total loon, he made my life hell, i'm glad to see the back of him. I only wish I could have been there in person I would have shook the sharks hand or to be precise its flipper''

    We go 0-1 down after only 12 minutes and then squander chance after chance, until the 89th minute:
    1-0
    1-1
    2-1
    Rotherham United celebrate the victory!
    Talk about nerve-shredding!
    Really chuffed to get through, downside is we had to play Feghouli and Saviola the entire match so they'll really be struggling for fitness when we meet Chesterfield.
    But at least we've made it!
    Congrats to Chesterfield and commiserations to Brentford and Accrington.

    Play-off Semi Final: Chesterfield 2 Accrington Stanley 0

    Chesterfield are off to Wembley!! commiserations to Accrington who played their hearts out today. I was actually pretty nervous today as we couldn't beat them in the final game of the season however today was a different proposition.
    Captain Courageous Mykhalyk gave us the lead in the 38th minute after a nervy start. Italian hitman Paloschi made up for his horrible performance last week with a brilliant goal to seal the game. Bravo was marvelous and gave us another clean sheet
    I thought that we might be made to pay for our lack of finishing prowess on the final game of the season however luckily we had done enough.
    Cheers Machine, I'm excited about going to Wembley and hopefully it will help my team financially. Like Rotherham, it's a race against time to get some of my players right for the final but hopefully it pans out for us.
    Good luck Machine!
    Onward and upward to a Wembley Final!

    Ok i'm on my soap box again!
    Tresor Mputu was dropped -2 to 81 today despite being widely acknowledged as one of the best African-based players.
    This appears to be for no other reason than Soccer Wiki has (recently introduced?) a 81 cap on the DR Congo league, and ignores the fact that in the last few years Mputu has won the African Champions League twice and currently captains his country.
    It now means that he is only the 20th best-rated DR Congo player on the database, and that there are at least 42 players rated higher than him currently playing in the African Champions League this season.
    So according to SM/ Soccer Wiki Tresor Mputu is not even in the top 40 of best African-based players and is only the 20th best DR Congo player despite being national team captain
    What are these league caps based on?
    If it is FIFA rankings, then DR Congo are rated 86th in the world so I am expecting caps of 81 and lower to be introduced for the domestic leagues of UAE (89th), Armenia (90th), Georgia (96th), China (98th), Qatar (101st), Saudi Arabia (108th), as well as Latvia, Lithuania, Cyprus etc etc. so that there is a bit of consistency and fairness....?
