  1. Re: Raheem Sterling Fair enough. Given that it is Liverpool he may well do so.
  2. Re: Raheem Sterling When he plays 200 first team minutes then he will be added to the database. He played five minutes yesterday so that's a start.
  3. Re: Guillermo Fernandez I want me some steering wheel
  4. Re: Charly Musonda Jr - Belgians brightest talent Nice write up. Had an opportunity to see highlights of young Belgian players and this kid was highlighted for a few moments. Good work.

  6. Re: Top 5 Leagues - Must Buys. No rise this time around to Ter Stegen or Bernd Leno?

  8. Re: Player Concerns (please read the Online Help if looking for help) That's it! I've pretty much had enough with this system. I inherited a Barca team with Holger Badstuber whose concern level was 4 when I got the team. I got it down to 3 when he was injured. He was out for three months. Concern level raised throughout the injury. He's still got 6 weeks left with the injury and has now today announced that he is demanding a transfer (concern level 5). How the hell am I supposed to play him when he is injured? That's purely ridiculous.
  9. I'm a gold member - bought a year's worth of membership. In the SMFA games where you need to be a gold manager to manage the games played there is an annoying pop up advertising gold membership. Please eliminate this popup for gold members as we already understand the benefits for us for having purchased gold.
  10. Re: WWE latest news And then on top of all of that they give a ******* gimmick to one of their few REAL talents in the division, Natalya. My girlfriend who I got into watching wrestling has hated the divas division since she started watching. She takes a lot of martial arts classes (yeah, I got to watch myself! ) and she feels as though the divas are a waste of time. I got her watching the Gene Okerlund Vintage Collection episode from last week as it had the famous Trish Stratus Vs Lita RAW main event on it. She was really impressed and wished, like much of us do, that the WWE would give the diva's that type of opportunity. Unfortunately, there are only a handful of current divas who could put on such a good match. That leaves me to hope that the WWE do what's best for women's wrestling - separate the diva's and the real women's wrestlers from each other (to some degree) and add a few of the genuine great women's wrestlers and give us some of the best women's matches that could be on. It's doable but they're far too interested in a couple of minutes of T&A.
  11. Re: Changes in financial situation What about new managers who inherit a team and constantly work to improve their team's situation. Often it borders on impossible. There needs to be something done to give new owners an opportunity to turn teams around. When the teams that have money outbid the teams that are trying it doesn't reward the team trying. The rich get rich, the weak get weaker and never shall the two meet. SoccerManager should not be La Liga which is destroyed by two teams who can afford what every other team cannot.
  12. Re: What the best league in the world in your opinion The English Premier League is the best league in the world. With the one-sidedness of it I wouldn't even consider La Liga to be the second best league in the world. I believe that distinction belongs to Serie A although that two has become a two horse race this season.
  13. Re: robben v bale 1. He's young 2. Soccer Manager community rates young players insanely high 3. Repeat.
  14. Re: Changes in financial situation To me his suggestion sounds a lot more like what the NBA does with its luxury tax rather than 1940s Germany and present day Zimbabwe. I do believe that SM could penalize the richer clubs or the clubs that pay over X amount in wage bills by charging dollar for dollar amounts once you reach the "luxury tax threshold". Clubs below that threshold would receive the total pot at the end of each season rather than the chairman handing out new money. One of my teams has the following roster; C Ronaldo (98) - A Iniesta (97) - I Casillas (95) - W Sneijder (95) - G Pique (95) - D Villa (95) - D Alves (95) - D Drogba (94) - E Cambiasso (94) - D Maicon (94) - S Busquets (94) - S Ramos (94) - G Higuain (94) - R Pedro (93) - M Gomez (93) - R Ferdinand (93) - J Mata (92) - M Van Bommel (92) - A Pato (92) - G Barry (91) - M Hamsik (91) - L Diarra (91) - M Gotze (91) - S Kjaer (90) - L Lucas (90) - A Lennon (90) - T Kroos (90) and about 200 more players some of whom are the next big 90s players (Iker Muniain, Musacchio, Phil Jones, etc.). 236 players all up. $4,235,600 in weekly wage. I have over $150m in the bank. There are three other teams with similar rosters. I can sell the bottom 50 of my players without hurting me whatsoever giving me another 50-75 mil in my bank and purchasing the great young talent as it becomes available in the game world. I wouldn't mind if this team was taxed 20-30 mil (or so) at the end of the season with the poorer teams given a hand out so that they can buy another two or three players so they can be more competitive. I don't think the other teams with similar talent in the league would either. It wouldn't dent us but it would help the other teams potentially dramatically. Imagine having that extra money and going and spending it on young talent like OC or Deulofeu who us rich teams have not targeted intentionally to let other managers get some studs.

  16. Re: The New Players Thread Not sure if any mods peruse this forum but wouldn't it be easier simply to move the thread rather than arguing about it?
  17. Re: Player Concerns (please read the Online Help if looking for help) I took over a team with concerns. Played the seven players with concerns nine games out of the nine games I coached (100%). They ALL went to level five concerns. What is the point of trying?
  18. Re: When trying to find a club One suggestion to this excellent one that I'd like to add is the minimum number of players. Rather than getting a whole host of clubs that have 21 players you could pick, for example, minimum 25 players. This way you're not inheriting a skeleton team.
  19. Re: so whos the best 83 - 87 rated players? :confused: ***? Dude is 30 and only 85 rated.
  20. Re: Jordan IBE - Wycombe 1st team starlet - now watched by Liverpool & Manchester Utd I wouldn't want to play for them, either.

    Job Offer

    So in one of my gameworld's I've won 7 or 8 (at least) in a row. I'm 2 whole games and a big goal difference ahead with my Stockport County club that I've got a ton of great young players on. I am going to lose a few of them due to breaking the bank in a few turns (though none of my players are uber great ratings yet - players like Alex O-C, Karim Rekik, Harry Kane, Mason Bennett, etc.) and my loaned in players (Casnos among others). I just received a job offer for a 9-points clear Man City team with half a dozen games to go in the div 1 season. The question... Do I take the Man City job or do I suffer through a few potential losses and keep my Stockport team? Can a friend who is interested in joining take either team?
  22. Another wonder kid has been added to the game world with the addition of Ajax's Davy Klaassen. vmnNntGH11I He played nine minutes in his league debut on November 28th against NEC and scored in the first minute of his professional league career. X1-ePIcaDvk
  23. English Championship 2041 got started today with the first game of the real season. My Sunderland team defeated Everton 2-1. A great effort considering Marco Reus was red carded in just the fourth minute. The problem? Division One Table stands at Sunderland 1 win, 0 losses, +1 goal differential and 3 points while Everton is also on 1 win, 0 losses, +1 goal differential despite losing our game. What gives?
  24. Re: Official Cricket Thread Until we stop picking players that are either past it (Haddin and to a certain extent Ponting) or putting in players that aren't quite up to it (one good inning every third or fourth test doesn't cut it) then you're right. As far as Swann's comments... I think the guy has a point. I love ODIs myself but I do believe that there is only room for the five day format and one shortened version of the game. It seems to me that Twenty20 is much more popular than ODI.
  25. Re: Dylan Tombides - New Kewell For those unsure what JMH is talking about http://www.heraldsun.com.au/sport/soccer/young-australian-striker-dylan-tombides-back-in-cancer-battle/story-e6frfg8x-1226207018841 Poor lad. Hope he recovers ASAP. Been there with the cancer thing, different sort, but I know how it can ravage budding sporting careers.
