Re: Gold Championship 7
I'm Counting On Molineux Lot.
Ipswich travel the long distance from Tractor Territory to the mists of the West Midlands tonight.
New boy Dario Passoni will start tonight behind James Beattie and Dean Ashton in the Center of midfield. Beattie and Ashton, whom both grabbed goals in their debut games will partner up again for tonights game at the Molineux.
Ipswich need a win today to get there Campaign off to a good start with already a draw under their belt against Stoke City. Manager Sam Wainwright claimed: "It will be tough tonight out there, but I've asked the lads to put on their best feet and get out there and stuff them 4 or 5-0 and from what i've seen in training, their capable of it because their fitness levels are absolutely stunning for lads of their age."
According to Ipswich assistant manager Gianfranco Zola, Westerlo Left Back Nico Van Kerckhoven is expected to join Ipswich Town within the next 48 hours. Assitant Manager Gianfranco Zola claimed: "We are expected to complete the signing of Van Kerckhoven within the next couple days with Nico taking a medical tommorow morning."
AEK Athens have still not replyed to Ipswich Manager Sam Wainwright, with his proposed bid for defender Raymond Victoria for around £2,000,000. Ipswich Spokesman Nigel Spackman told SMSport: "The interest in Raymond hasn't had a response in a while. We have spoke with his agent about the move and his agent seems tempted aswell as the player, but upon not hearing from AEK, we may be forced to withdraw the bid."
Reports say Darren Currie could be on his way out of the club. Suggestions show Lokomotiv Moscow made an initial bid for the player followed by a bid by Blackpool. Reserves coach Dennis Wise said: "Darren has been looking at iinitial bids and was keen on the move to Lokomotiv, but the manager withdrew the bid."
Ipswich Town player Wolverhampton Wanderers in a Youth league match last night where Ipswich turned out 4-1 winners. Niguez Aaron bagged a Hat Trick with George Boyd adding to the collection before the 90th minute. Wainwright's Youth manager Kerry Dixon said: "We were already looking towards putting Aaron into the first team and i'm sure this will give the Gaffer a better look on Aaron and hope he does make the team."

Re: Gold Championship 7
Ipswich Town have invested in 18 new signings this season, costing just under £14,000,000. However the Yocal outfit are still trying to offload some of there unwanted talent, with such players as Dean Bowditch and Darren Currie already falling of the Tractor of Favouritism.
This week Ipswich have expressed interest in more players. A deal was trying to be decided by Everton and Ipswich for the Contract of Allesandro Pistone, but talks fell through after the Everton manager upped the price. Sam Wainwright claimed: "He upped the bid to 5 million, which i'm not willing to pay, he might aswell stand in front of me and say 'stand and deliver'." Everton Manager Bryan No idea had this to say: "If he doesn't want Pistone, then thats his problem, i never liked him anyway, he drank his tea funny."
Ipswich and Everton have also started negotiation talks with Goodison veteran Alan Stubbs. The initial bid at the moment stands at around £750,000.
Ipswich have also been chasing Navdeep Sandhu's AEK Athens player Raymond Victoria for a fee around £2,000,000. Navdeep said: "We are in talks with Ipswich on a possible transfer but i cannot tell you anymore than that at the moment because that is all we have for the moment."
Aswell as Athens and Everton, Ipswich are also chasing VfB Stuttgart defender Silvio Meißner. Meißner is currently for sale around the £1,000,000. Wainwright claimed: "Meißner would be a great addition at the back to link with Hunel and would be his ideal partner in the back 4."
Wolves are up next and Wainwright recons they can defeat the outfit from the Molineux saying: "they are a strong team but Dean and James performing well last week and i hope they can do it again."
Wolves 1-2 Ipswich

Weather's been a bit of a Liquorice Allsorts here in Bristol today, one minute the sun's out, the next minute we get a heavy burst of rain! Outside my house, whenever it rains hard, we get a huge puddle outside the gate which wouldn't look too bad as a replacement for a lake

Baseball Furie reacted to Ash_Thompson in Gold Championship 7
Re: Gold Championship 7
Evolution at Mestalla; An ambitious signal of intent:
New Valencia manager Ash Thompson addressed the media earlier today for the first time since taking over at Estadio Mestalla. Speaking on SMRadio, the Englishman braved a barrage of angry Valencia supporters upset that Thompson has ‘forced’ a collection of homegrown talents and fan favorites to leave the Spanish giants over the course of the last seven days. It’s Thompson’s first week in the hot seat at Mestalla but he already finds himself under vast pressure. Several Valencia fans vented their frustration during a live radio phone in declaring their disgust that David Villa (Barcelona), David Silva (Benfica), Rodriguez Vicente (Barcelona), Sanchez Joaquin (Milan), Roberto Angulo (Internazionale), Carlos Marchena (Milan) and the legendary Roberto Ayala (Internazionale) would be plying their trade away from the Costa del Azaharbased club.
A fond farewell; David Villa headlines the Valencia exodus.
Thompson explained to listeners that the club was in a state of evolution and asked for patience from the Valencia faithful. The young manager boldly expressed his determination to break Real Madrids & Barcelona’s stranglehold on the La Liga title and stated that major surgery was required at the club to enable him to do that. Stamping his authority on the club, Thompson has brought four players into the club this week; Ronaldinho (Barcelona), Andrea Pirlo (Milan), Zlatan Ibrahimovic (Internazionale) and Sabrosa Simao (Benfica).
All four players made their Valencia debuts last night in Valencia’s 3-0 victory in a friendly against Sir Bobo’s Benfica.
Brazilian superstar Ronaldinho excites under pressure Thompson.
Thompson briefly spoke to SMNews shortly after the phone in; “I’m absolutely delighted to be here at Valencia, its been a busy week and I can understand that a proportion of our fans are sad to see the back of so many of their favorite players but sacrifices needed to be made to take the club forward.”
“I’m sure that the fans will get behind the new lads and show them the same level of support, we have managed to secure four world class talents this week, we will be moving to a fantastic stadium in a couple of seasons time and we are going into this seasons La Liga with a real chance of competing with Barca and Real… our fans have a lot to be positive about and as a club, we all need to be unified and moving in the right direction.”
“We have one of the most talented squads in the world and we will be adding it to, we will particularly be looking to add some youngsters to the squad who will undoubtedly become Valencia stars in the coming years. I want us to play football the way that the game is supposed to be played and this weeks ‘flair’ signings… particularly Ronaldinho and Simao, will get the fans both excited & proud again.”
Thompson refused to comment when asked if further players would be leaving Mestalla. Montana Jorge Lopez, Cerra, Antonio Amarilla and Antonio Gavilan are said to be available and club sources have stated that Emiliano Moretti, David Albelda and David Navarro may be leaving the club in the coming days in exchange deals.
Nou Mestalla - All change at Valencia. Valencia will be moving into their new stadium in 2009.
Edu (VFB Stuttgart), Miguel Hugo Viana (Reading), Mario Regueiro (Gimnastic), Franceso Tavano (Manchester City), Miguel Pallardo (Sheffield United), Niguez Aaron (Ipswich), Javi Guerra (Free), Vicente Romero (Free) and Juan Mora (Free) have all also been deemed surplus to requirements and been shown the exit door at Valencia this week.
Valencia go into tonight’s home game as clear favorites taking on relegation contenders Almería.

Baseball Furie reacted to tebthereb in Rep points???
Re: Rep points???
Here is some more info:
Register Date Factor
For every 365 days, users gain 1 point of reputation-altering power.
Post Count Factor
For every 1000 posts, users gain 1 point of reputation-altering power.
Reputation Point Factor
For every 100 points of reputation, users gain 1 point of reputation-altering power.
So, for instance, I have a rep power of 7. This is built up from me having less than 6000 posts (5000-5999 gives me 5 points of reputation altering power) plus me having joined the forum just over 2 years ago (730-1094 days gives me 2 points of reputation altering power). So when I give a positive response to a post i add 7 rep points to the user in question.
I currently have 12 rep points. This is 10 as we all start with, plus 2 points from the users who have given me positive comments twice (both had a rep altering power of 1, as opposed to my 7 as above).
When I reach 50 rep points, the message you get when hovering over the green rep icon will change.
Minimum Post Count
How many posts must a user have before his reputation hits count on others? - 50
Minimum Reputation Count
How much reputation must a user have before his reputation hits count on others? - 10
Daily Reputation Clicks Limit
How many reputation clicks can a user give over each 24 hour period? Administrators are exempt from this limit. -20
Reputation User Spread
How many different users must you give reputation to before you can hit the same person again? Administrators are exempt from this limit. -10Hopefully that speaks for itself. Hitting just refers to the act of giving reputation, not violence.
I can change any of the numbers above, just give me good reason to and I shall.
As for why and when you should leave feedback, it is really down to you. I would suggest just giving positive feedback if you agree with what has been said or think the user has made a good point, or just feel it is a high quality post.
I would leave negative sparingly and only if you disagree/think they have made a poor case, and refrain from leaving any if you are not really bothered. It should NOT be used to grade people on whether they have posted in the right place etc.
I can delete feedback and I believe people should be able to see the feedback they have received, so if any is left unjustly it can be removed. If people are offensive with negative feedback they won't be leaving more once I hear of it.

Just under half an hour later, Archie Thompson, the divisions top scorer gets on the end of a wonder cross by Despotovski which earned Thompson his 13th goal of the season. 3 Minutes later, Jamie Harwell Slammed a stunning volley into the top of the net from 40 yards out and is a contender for goal of the season no doubt.
