    CHELSEA GO ARSH HUNTING


    Chelsea last night completed the signings of their first big names this season. Andrei Arshavin joined from Neighbours and Local Rivals Arsenal For a fee around £11,000,000 plus French striker Nicolas Anelka. Arshavin was said to be top on manager Sam Wainwrights wishlist, whilst Arshavin had this to say: "I Enjoyed my 3 weeks at Arsenal but I don't like French players and I have heard that alot of my Russian compatriats will also be joining shortly so I am up for this move, I think it could excel my career."



    The second and final move of the first day was Real Madrids Klass Jan Huntelaar who joined for an undisclosed fee plus Argentinian whizzkid Franco Di Santo. Huntelaar claimed: "I hear my good friend Robin Van Persie shall be arriving with in the next week, this excites me much, I look forward to our partnership." Mr Tailor claimed: "I love Sam, he's so good looking, but don't tell him this."



    Aswell as signings Chelsea are flogging players thick and fast with all of the team transfer listed. Ricardo Quaresma is moving to Valencia for a proposed bid around £27,000,000. This means that Chelsea will get more cash added to their transfer budget. Along with Quaresma is Saloman Kalou, who is Moving to Espanyol, the deal taking him their is said to be around £25,000,000 also adding to their transfer kitty. the 3rd bid accepted so far today has been for José Bosingwa from Arsenal of £24,000,000. This will take Chelsea's transfer kitty to well over £100,000,000 and we look forward to seeing their Big buys.
    Chelsea have given managers 24 hours to respond to bid for players Florent Malouda and Petr Cech. Inter Milan are said to be interested in Petr Cech but have so far not made a move for the Shotstopper. it's said that Wainwright is giving managers 28 hours to sort out a bid for the Keeper and the winger otherwise they will be going in this case, Malouda to Villareal and Petr Cech to French outfit Bordeaux.
    Chelsea have issued a statement for their next targets:
    "We will be moving for Bayern Munichs Philip Lahm within the next 24 hours as well as hopefully signing Robin Van Persie from Arsenal and Igor Akinfeev from CSKA Moscow." It has also been said that Chelsea are chasing Bremen Center Back Per Mertesacker from Thomas Goodson.

    We have got stricter with the moderation, but thats only because a lot of the regulars seemed to think that because they were regular, they had more right to do other stuff than the more less active members, such as insult people and get away with it. The fact that it's got stricter will hopefully help clear up the idiots but the pizzaz of the old chat has dissapeared and I don't fully understand why.

    I thought to myself earlier. In my lifetime, who has been the most influential and best players I have watched. Well I decided that seeings as I was born in 1990, why not make a team of players I've watched over the past 18 years and loved doing so. so here it is...

    Peter Schmeichel: Basic reason, was known as one of the greatest keepers of our time, despite him playing for Poo United I loved watching him play and was definately one of the most influential keepers of my time. I'll never forget some of his saves and I cannot wait to see how his son Kasper fairs.
    Roberto Carlos: Ahh the Brazilian Bald midget, one of the best free kick takers If not THE best free kick taker I have ever seen. A truely memorable player and one of my favourites in this team. Loved this guy.
    John Terry: Well what can you say, the man of steel himself, maybe a little bias being a Chelsea fan and all but I don't care . I've seen nearly every single game this guy has EVER played in and he never ceases to amaze me. One of the strongest and intimidating CB's I've ever seen and I love him .
    Paulo Maldini: Growing up all I heard was this name, and to be honest until a few years back I didn't know what all the fuss was about. He truely is an AC Milan King and deserves every trophy and praise he has ever got.
    Lilian Thuram: I remember this guy at France '98 and I remember him at Euro 2000 too. His best performances I've seen from him, a great team captain (I think) at Juvé and I don't think he got what he deserved at Barca. A shame about his injury that made it a bit harder to stay in the game.
    Pavel Nedved: I love this guy! His hair, his personality, his ability with the ball isn't too bad either. Juvé's best performer of the 21st century without a doubt. Truely class player for both club and country.
    Zinedine Zidane: Enough Said.
    Franchesco Totti: What a player, Watched him at Euro 2000 I think it was, Straight after that I bought a Roma shirt with Totti on the back, a truely brilliant player and has all the attributes to be named a footballing legend, class act.
    Luís Figo: Inter, Lisbon, Barca and Madrid, I've seen him play for every team and he has never dissapointed, getting on now but he's still got it IMO, loved him for years.
    Alessandro Del Piero: Everyone knows I love this guy, one of the hardest workers Ever seen in an Italian shirt, Period. Sublime marksman and an all round brilliant player, the man has scored 250 goals in 575 games for gods sake! and been at the same club for 15 years, what commitment!
    Gabriel Batistuta: Remember his goal against United? Course the united fans don't But what another sublime player from Serie A. I have huge respect for him as he was such a fantastic player for Argentina and Fiorentina and Roma. My fave player in this team.
    Please don't slate my opinions, they are opinions after all. Feel free to name your favourite players

    Once upon a time a Priest was walking past a small marsh land when all of a sudden a frog spoke these words: "Please help me priest, I used to be a choirboy and then this nasty witch turned me into a frog, now the only way the spell can be broken is if I sleep in the bed of a religious person, please help me. :("
    The Priest agreed and the frog stayed in the Priests bed with him for the night, and low and behold the frog turned into a choirboy. And that your honour! is how this case actually happened!

    Re: What does SM mean to you?
    I'm self-employed, work from home and work looooong hours. I'm online a lot because of work and log into SM very often. I've got three children, a 6 year old, 4 year old and a 5 month old. All three of them are girls. I've also got a nagging wife who constantly nags at me to put up shelves, fix toys and a million other jobs, and she thinks that when I sit down, pop open a beer and watch the football then it's time for her to start hoovering.
    SM just provides me with one of many ways that I use to do something other than work, kids or chores for my better half. I'm a huge football fan, so much so that my children have given me a football cake for my birthday for the last three years running. They say I love football more than them, of course I don't. But it comes a very close second
    So I guess in short my point is that SM is a fun little hobby for me which just so happens to revolve around a sport I love. I work online so it's conveniant. I'm often logged into SM on a break or when I should be making some money and it's also a pretty cool way to interact with other football mad people like myself.

    Christian Bekamenga currently plays for the Ligue 1 team FC Nantes.
    Bekamenga was born in Cameroon in 1986 which makes him 22.
    At the age of 18, Bekamenga joined the Malaysian team Negeri Sembilan, where he played a total of 62 games scoring a fantastic sum of 59 goals in the space of 3 years.
    Bekamenga then moved on to the Indonesian team Persib Bandung. Whilst there he hit 30 goals in 30 games for Persib. With this magnificent turnout of 89 goals in 92 games it wasn't long before some bigger clubs declared interest.
    Which was when FC Nantes decided to put in a bid for him and snap him up in January.
    Bekamenga is currently rated 75 on the SM database and is sure for a rise. The French rating changes aren't too far away and I think he should hit at least 81/82 the way he is playing.

    The New Season for Grémio starts tomorrow, and their aiming high in their quest to become champions.
    New Manager Sam Wainwright was appointed almost a week ago and has since bought in 17 players to bolster their chances of Division 2 Victory. Wainwright told us: "It's a tough division this season, if we have any chance of promotion we need to Perform week in week out as all the managers in this division are forces to be reckoned with let alone their teams."
    Grémio's first game of the season is against managerless Liverpool who have made no signings thus are in an illegal predicament. Wainwright claimed: "It's a shame that their managerless really, we have our work cut out against them now and it will be really tricky to overcome their powerful team."
    Since the start of the season Wainwright has bought in no less than 17 players and has been one of the busiest in the transfer market.
    The player that stands out most in this crowd is former Chelsea Centre Back Ricardo Carvalho. Carvalho signed for around £6,000,000 plus Player Exchange and has been instantly made captain for the season. Carvalho joined Chelsea in 2004 and has a total of 49 caps for Portugal. Grémio assistant manager Romarío said: "It's great to have Ricardo on board and he is a great asset to the team and I am sure he will do fantastic for us."
    Mark Van Bommel also joined the Brazilian outfit from Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich. Van Bommel is thought to have cost the club around £2,500,000 plus additional clauses. Van Bommel claimed: "Well it's a change thats for sure, I hope to end my career here so I look forward to it, along with the weather and the women."
    Another signing was Real Betis' Mehmet Aurelio. The Turkish Midfielder joined for around £2,000,000 plus players going the other way. Aurelio claimed: "I've always wanted to play in Brazil and now I can thanks to this move, I look forward to the season ahead and hope to do the team and manager proud."
    Grémio also signed the Portuguese striking duo of Manuel Helder Postiga and Miguel Nuno Gomes from Sporting Lisbon and Benfica for a combined fee of £4,100,000. Wainwright claimed: "To sign these two and have them up front is a great bit of dealing between our chief director and the agents of the two men and we look forward to our new strike force delivering the goods on the pitch."
    Next up was Barnsley whizz-kid Ruben Noble-Lazarus for £80,000. Followed by the duo from Hamburger SV of Anis Ben-Hatira and Eric Choupo-Moting for around £4,200,000. Hamburger SV manager Liam Smith said: "It's a shame they had to leave, but I'm such a nasty bugger that they handed in requests due to me bullying them for having funny names, I mean come on! Cheapo and Anus are fine names!"
    Then came the signings of the four spaniards of Lesaka Pablo Orbaiz from Atletico Bilbao for £500,000, Montana Jorge Lopez for £1,400,000 from Racing Santander, Matia Mario-Suarez from Mallorca for £2,700,000 and finally Moya Mark Torrejón from Espanyol for £1,300,000 plus additional clauses.
    Next up was Rangers Midfielder Pedro Mendes. The Portuguese veteran was brought in on a Player Exchange costing the Brazilians no money whatsoever and Romarío claimed: "It was a great bit of business, the player we exchanged for him we thought had no future at the club so it was a simple exchange that was sorted in 3 hours."
    Sam Wainwright then went Kid krazy by travelling to Benfica to see good friend and manager George ******** to negotiate a deal for Argentinian starlet Ángel Di Maria. After 20 minutes of negotiating the two cluns struck a deal around £8,300,000. The Benfica manager had this to say: "Di Maria was a good player but I just couldn't find a place in the squad so I rang my good friend Sam to see if he was interested in him and obviously Sam was, so he got on a Private Jet and flew over here within a few hours and we struck a deal and went to McDonalds for lunch."
    Then Sam approached Genoa for Anthony Vanden Borre. The Deal was accepted within 24 hours and Vanden Borre flew back to Brazil with his new coach for a player exchange.
    The Final signing was Chile and Udinese wonder kid Alejandro Alexis Sanchez for a fee around £2,100,000 plus two players. Sam Wainwright was extremely happy with this signed and said: "It's a great signing to get this kid so cheap, I asked my good friend Mark Farine if I should go ahead with the deal and with no hesitation he agreed with my find."

    The Season Ahead

    Predicted Position: 1st
    Juventus: Another team that's had it easy, should follow Roma up to division 1 with the team they have.

    Grémio also signed the Portuguese striking duo of Manuel Helder Postiga and Miguel Nuno Gomes from Sporting Lisbon and Benfica for a combined fee of £4,100,000. Wainwright claimed: "To sign these two and have them up front is a great bit of dealing between our chief director and the agents of the two men and we look forward to our new strike force delivering the goods on the pitch."
    Next up was Barnsley whizz-kid Ruben Noble-Lazarus for £80,000. Followed by the duo from Hamburger SV of Anis Ben-Hatira and Eric Choupo-Moting for around £4,200,000. Hamburger SV manager Liam Smith said: "It's a shame they had to leave, but I'm such a nasty bugger that they handed in requests due to me bullying them for having funny names, I mean come on! Cheapo and Anus are fine names!"
    Then came the signings of the four spaniards of Lesaka Pablo Orbaiz from Atletico Bilbao for £500,000, Montana Jorge Lopez for £1,400,000 from Racing Santander, Matia Mario-Suarez from Mallorca for £2,700,000 and finally Moya Mark Torrejón from Espanyol for £1,300,000 plus additional clauses.
    Next up was Rangers Midfielder Pedro Mendes. The Portuguese veteran was brought in on a Player Exchange costing the Brazilians no money whatsoever and Romarío claimed: "It was a great bit of business, the player we exchanged for him we thought had no future at the club so it was a simple exchange that was sorted in 3 hours."
    Sam Wainwright then went Kid krazy by travelling to Benfica to see good friend and manager George ******** to negotiate a deal for Argentinian starlet Ángel Di Maria. After 20 minutes of negotiating the two cluns struck a deal around £8,300,000. The Benfica manager had this to say: "Di Maria was a good player but I just couldn't find a place in the squad so I rang my good friend Sam to see if he was interested in him and obviously Sam was, so he got on a Private Jet and flew over here within a few hours and we struck a deal and went to McDonalds for lunch."
    Then Sam approached Genoa for Anthony Vanden Borre. The Deal was accepted within 24 hours and Vanden Borre flew back to Brazil with his new coach for a player exchange.
    The Final signing was Chile and Udinese wonder kid Alejandro Alexis Sanchez for a fee around £2,100,000 plus two players. Sam Wainwright was extremely happy with this signed and said: "It's a great signing to get this kid so cheap, I asked my good friend Mark Farine if I should go ahead with the deal and with no hesitation he agreed with my find."

    PREDICTION:

    The Season Ahead
    Division 2:
    Roma: Firm favourites after not having to do much to the squad with their already good team and cash to flash, should have no trouble getting promoted this season and anything below 5th is a failure.
    Standout Signings: Frederick Kanouté, Didier Drogba, Mahamadou Diarra, Emmanuel Adebayor and Yaya Toure.
    Predicted Position: 1st
    Juventus: Another team that's had it easy, should follow Roma up to division 1 with the team they have.
    Standout Signings: Gianluca Zambrotta, Miroslav Klose, Paolo Maldini, Luca Toni, Michael Ballack and Fabio Cannavaro.
    Predicted Position: 2nd
    Manchester City: Strong chances of promotion after manager Thomas Goodson bought in some good talent.
    Standout Signings: Ruud Van Nistlerooy, Nemanja Vidic, Dejan Stankovic, Wesley Sneijder and Robin Van Persie.
    Predicted Position: 3rd
    Lazio: Powerful team with a good manager who could well push for promotion too this season.
    Standout Signings: Xavi, Andres Iniesta and Cristian Ledesma.
    Predicted Position: 4th
    Grémio: Chances possible with the veteran manager and new look team, pushing for promotion and could possibly get it.
    Standout Signings: Ricardo Carvalho, Mark Van Bommel and Miguel Nuno Gomes.
    Predicted Position: 5th
    Shaktar Donetsk: Great manager with angelic scouting ability, Pushing for promotion along with the other but this is a poweful division.
    Standout Signings: Diego Lugano, Alberto Gilardino and Leite Adriano.
    Predicted Position: 6th
    Liverpool: Good chance if their team stay the way it is, However with their team being Managerless at the moment they could struggle to get off the ground.
    Standout Signings: None
    Predicted Position: 7th
    CSKA Moscow: No signings as of yet so I can see CSKA struggling this season. Vagner Love and Sergei Ignashevich will have to perform to prevent them from the drop.
    Standout signings: None
    Predicted Position: 8th
    Boca Juniors: Struggled with signings and cant see them getting off to a good start until they bring in more players.
    Standout Signings: Anderson Deco.
    Predicted Position: 9th
    Legia Warsaw: Unmanaged with a poor team as it is, definate relegation for me, sorry Warsaw fans.
    Standout Signings: None
    Predicted Position: 10th

    Baseball Furie got a reaction from Insider in P/E in squad sheet   
    I don't know if it's been done before but I think we should be able to see the players we have offered in P/E on the squad sheet.
    If like me you find it annoying when you can't remember what players you've added to a Player Exchange deal when bidding for another player, you'll find it frustrating if your bids collapse because of it.
