    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.

    Opinions?

    Re: Most important attribute for a modern day footballer?
    I have no idea why but I went for player Intelligence. I think John Terry oozes player intelligence along with David Beckham, Frank Lampard and Steven Gerrard.
    Tempted to go for Diving/simulation in this day and age. When I watched Chelsea Vs. United last month, think it was Andy Gray pointed out: "This is now a non-contact sport".
    We can't have that, how are you supposed to win the ball? Interceptions? Pathetic. Mike Riley is the perfect man to look at this season with his Babysitter ways.
    As for Alonso. He is one of the best players on the liverpool team and I just think that Claudio Ranieiri is trying to praise his team by Saying Alonso isn't good enough.

    Baseball Furie reacted to MrNiceGuy in Final Offer Option   
    Not sure if this has been suggested before but couldn't find anything using search.
    How about an option when bidding to make it the final offer for the player, so that when the other manager recieves the offer he only has the option to accept or reject. I'm sure i'm not the only one who has recieved many ridiculous counter-offers for players, things like Henry for Ben Arfa or Gerrard for Aquilani, and I would rather the other manager just rejected the offer than make me a pointless counter-offer of which my acceptance would also require my acceptance into a mental institution.
    The other manager can still use pm if they wish to negotiate a deal, but in situations when what your offering is the best you can or are willing to this could prove useful.
    Anyway, i've made a quick mockup to show it a bit better, so feel free to discuss....

    Cruz Azul 2-3 UANL Tigres


    UANL Tigres started of their Mexican campaign in winning style after overcoming a strong Cruz Azul squad.
    Managers Colin Barker and Sam Wainwright have both been busy in the transfer market with both managers bringing in no less than 3 players.
    Azul spent near £14,000,000 on players Saber Ben Frej from Le Mans, Jonathan De Leon from UANL Tigres, Leal Mario Sergio from Metalurh Donetsk, Stanislav Smrek of MFK Kosice, Santos Willian Santan of Vitoria and Marc Stein of Hertha Berlin.
    UANL Tigres have spent just over £15,000,000 on the likes of Hugo Campagnaro of Sampdoria, Alejandro Arguello or América and Adilson Cabral of FC Basel aswell as Royston Drenthe from Real Madrid and Andreas Ottl of Bayern Munich on loan.
    Though none of Cruz Azul's new boys played, Drenthe, Ottl, Arguello and Campagnaro all played the full 90 for UANL.
    First Half:
    UANL start well and are unlucky when a shot from Javier Saavedra is cleared off the line and out to safety by Julio Cesar Dominguez.
    It doesn't take long for UANL to get off the mark as Fabián Alberto Cubero finishes off a slick passing move with a clever finish to put egg on Azul's face.
    Cruz Azul prevent even more embarassment when a great shot from Francisco Fonseca shoots and Usak Orkun produces a solid save to prevent what would have been a wonderful goal.
    Then, for the first time in the game, Cruz Azul dominate the ball and Joaquin Beltran beats the offside trap and slides it under the advancing keeper.
    As UANL Tigres attempt to reply, Royston Drenthe hits the ball hard with the outside of his boot, but puts it into row z.
    Continuing their attacks, Francisco Fonseca gets in a thundering shot that was saved well by the Azul keeper.
    Minutes later Royston Drenthe darts down the wing with little interference from the opposition and crosses the ball but Fabián Alberto Cubero has his head in his hands, after he blasts wide infront of an open goal.
    Cruz Azul are trying to dominate as Miguel Sabah blasts the ball towards the goal, but it hits the crossbar
    The game is very open at the moment and Usak Orkun dives to his left and clutches the ball to his chest.
    With the last action of the half, a beautiful overhead kick by Jaime Lozano, just goes over the crossbar.
    Half Time Analysis:
    Both teams have looked like scoring a bag of goals but it's just converting them that seems to be the problem for both teams at the moment.
    Second Half:
    Cruz Azul shoot out of the starting blocks in the second half when Miguel Sabah leaves the defenders in his wake and chips the keeper with aplomb!



    As Azul become more confident, a wonderful strike from Miguel Sabah is pushed away by the keeper.
    Tigres desperate to get back into the game, one of the best chances of the half goes begging as Fabián Alberto Cubero fails to follow up on the rebound.
    Minutes later, a cross from out wide falls to Francisco Fonseca who miss hits the volley.
    Julio César Domínguez is at full stretch but fails to make contact with the inviting cross.
    as the ball comes crashing back off the bar and falls to Francisco Fonseca who taps in the easiest of chances what a comeback from Tigres.
    Some hard tackling by Julio César Domínguez, contributing to his teams defence but nothing can stop Hugo Sanchez Guererro who will slot that in as a result of a terrible back pass and UANL Tigres take the lead with 3 minutes to go!!
    Full Time:
    UANL Tigres will be delighted with this close win over favourites Cruz Azul, I thought Francisco Fonseca was a joy to watch this evening and capped his performance with a goal and an assist.

    Englishman Arrives At The Jalisco
    Joe Charley has been unveiled as the new boss of Mexican side Chivas De Guadalajara.
    Upon his arrival at the club's training facility, he had this to say to the media: "I am very pleased to have taken over the reigns at the biggest club in Mexico, I am aiming to top the Mexican 1st Division, and do well in the three cup competitions we are competing in. I can tell the Guadalajara faithful that the rule of signing only Mexican players is being thrown into the Atlantic, after I came to an agreement with the President, Jorge Vergera. This shall make it a lot easier to sign quality players on the transfer market, making the squad more competitive in all departments. I hope to bring an attacking game to the club, as I believe we should win, but also entertain. The quality of the youngsters at the club is second to none, with players such as Sergio Avila and Omar Esparza, amongst others, ready to step into the starting eleven, and prove themselves to be 'special' players".
    Club legend, Alberto "El Venado" Medina spoke about the new manager earlier today: "It will be a major step in my career, as well as the rest of the teams' career to be managed by an Englishman, it is highly unusual to see European coaches in Mexico, let alone English coaches so I will learn new things from Mr Charley, and hopefully improve my game. He has a laid back approach, with two specific goals: To make the team play attacking football and build a team spirit that can cope with anything on the pitch. This season should be a turning point in the clubs' history.
    Joe Charley has made two permanent signings to bolster the squad before this seasons' curtain raiser against Tom Sinar's VFL Bochum in a friendly. First to arrive was 26 year old Ecuadorian, Segundo Castillo from Croatia's Crvena Zvezda for £8.3 million pounds. The centre of midfield needed an enforcer and Castillo fitted the job perfectly with his strength and stamina, leading Joe Charley to snap him up before others could even take note of his potential. He can play in either the centre of midfield, or as a holding midfielder. He likes to push forward and help with attacks when necessary. Castillo has been capped by Ecuador thirty three times, scoring twice, meaning he has lots of experience which will help Guadalajara in the long run. The other player to arrive was 23 year old Colombian, Humberto Mendoza from Atletico Nacional of his native country. After negotiations between Nacional Chairman Victor Marulanda and Joe Charley, the two parties agreed to a transfer fee of £8.3 millions pounds, with Juan Manuel Garza and Paulo Cesar Chavez heading in the opposite direction, to Colombia. Just like Castillo, Mendoza has international experience, this comes in the shape of 10 caps, with 1 goal scored. He plays in the centre of defence and is 1.92m tall, making him almost unbeatable in aerial battles. Two excellent signings for "Rebano Sagardo", which will help their push for success in the upcoming season. Who has come to the Jalisco on loan? We shall now find out.
    As well as two permanent signings, Joe Charley has signed two players from Italian club Fiorentina, managed by good friend Sheva. First to sign a season long loan deal was 22 year old Manuel Da Costa. He is a centre back, and will provide essential depth to the squad. He has 22 caps for the Portugal U21 team, and has been on the brink of getting his first senior Portugal cap in the past. 18 year old Montenegran, Stevan Jovetic followed his fellow Fiorentina player to Mexico, after agreeing to a one year loan deal to gain valuable first team experience. Jovetic is the captain of the Montenegro U21 team already, showing his maturity and talent. He has been capped by the Senior Montenegro team twice, and 6 times by the U21s, scoring 2 goals for the latter. He is a striker and is expected to partner Sergio Santana in attack.
    On the other end of the transfer market, 3 players have left the Jalisco. Juan Manuel Garza and Paulo Cesar Chavez were sold to Atletico Nacional as part of the Humberto Mendoza deal, and 22 year old striker Jesus Morales has been released. Joe Charley has said he "wishes them well" at their new clubs respectively.
    Joe Charley's first competitive game in charge comes against Tom Sinar's VFL Bochum in a friendly on Friday. The game should be a stern test ahead of the new season. Bochum have signed two very good players in the shape of Santiago Canizares (permanent) and Chilean prospect Luis Jimenez (on loan), so they are clearly a club with a determined manager who wants to drive the team to success. With Stanislav Sestak, they also have a striker who will score goals. Tom Sinar is expected to play a 4-5-1 as he has done with many of his other clubs in the past, to great achievement. Expect an all out attacking match with plenty of goals.
    Here is the Guadalajara schedule for late August/September:
    29th August 2008 - VFL Bochum - Friendly - H - "This match is just to see how the team gels together, and whether the new system suits the teams' style on the pitch. I would like a win, but I would be happy with a draw.
    30th August 2008 - Puebla - League - A - "A win is the only thing that would satisfy me as they are a much weaker team, with a poor defence and midfield that we must take advantage of. Their striker Marama Vahirua could cause some problems, but hopefully our defence can keep him quiet".
    3rd September 2008 - America - League - H - "This is a crucial game, despite it being so early on in the season, because I think they will be our title challengers throughout. I would want a win, but they have a talented squad with the likes of Ochoa, Castro, Insua, Cabanas and Moreno so a draw would be satisfactory".
    5th September 2008 - America - Friendly - H - "This match will be used to experiment with some new tactics if necessary and possibly give some of the youngsters a full ninety minutes. Revenge could also be an issue from the result of the league match two days before".
    6th September 2008 - Tecos De La UAG - League - H - "Just like the Puebla fixture, a win is our only option. They have a very good goalkeeper in Jose Corona but their outfield isn't glistening with talent".
    10th September 2008 - UNAM - League - A - "A tough match here, against a decent UNAM side who have signed some good players in pre season. Juan Carlos Cacho will of course provide them with a dangerous goal threat, especially if he is in form. Other than that new signings Atiba Hutchinson and Jeppe Kurth will provide the midfield with something extra, and Stijn Stijnen is a very good goalkeeper, who will be difficult to beat".
    13th September 2008 - Cruz Azul - League - H - "These could also be title contenders alongside America. With in my opinion the strongest midfield in the league they will be difficult to break down. Two talented youngsters stand out in this squad for me, centre back Julio Cesar Dominguez and tricky right winger Cesar Villaluz, they are two very good prospects that Cruz Azul have at their disposal. The three more experienced midfield enforcers, Gerardo Torrado, Carlos Bonet and Christian Riveros are exceptional players who provide strength, goals and most importantly experience to an already dangerous team. A win would be arguably the performance of the season, and would give the squad a big morale boost if needed".
    17th September 2008 - Atlas - League - A - "A possible slip up against a tricky team here. Diego Colotto, Eduardo Rergis and Luis Robles provide the defence and midfield with three technically adept players, but lack a goalscorer which could prove decisive. You need wins against teams like this to win the title".
    20th September 2008 - Monterrey - League - H - "A weak defence could prove to be decisive in this match, despite Monterrey possessing two strikers with goalscoring reputations, these being Humberto Suazo and Jared Borgetti, and a midfield maestro in the form of Luis Ernesto Perez. Our offense should finish this team off, but expect goals from Suazo and Borgetti".
    24th September 2008 - Atlante - League - A - "Could have a suprise team here in the form of Atlante, with a supurb strikeforce of Giancarlo Maldonado and Luis Gabriel Rey, goals should be easy to come by. Javier Munoz Mustafa provides the defence with a solid base, and Christian Bermudez is an exciting young player with bags of potential who will cause problems on the left wing. A tough match where a win is needed but a draw is more than possible should Bermudez and Maldonado reach their limit".
    27th September 2008 - UNAL Tigres - League - H - "A Win at all costs against a team with a poor defence and a midfield where a real leader is missing. The tables turn when you look at the attack though, should they implement a system which incorporates 3 forwards, Francisco Fonseca, Blas Perez and Gaston Nicolas Fernandez will provide fireworks. Oscar Perez is an experienced goalie as well, this will help his defence's confidence. Despite these positives, they are a weaker side who must be beaten".
    Formations with only three players at the back, are the only ones that will be considered this season, to make room for the squad's talented midfield players. The first choice formation is without a shadow of a doubt the 3-4-1-2 which includes the following players: Michel, Esparza, Reynoso, Magallon, Medina, Castillo, Pineda, Morales, Avila, Santana, Jovetic. Using this system will depend upon the scoring of goals, as playing three at the back means the defence has a lot more to do, and without a holding midfielder there is no second shield for the opposition to break down. However, with seven attacking players goals should be easy to come by. 22 year old Sergio Avila will be the playmaker, a crucial position in this formation, he needs to provide the service to the two strikers, Sergio Santana and Stevan Jovetic. The two wingers will also be tricky customers, Medina for his speed and skill, Morales for his excellent crossing and set pieces. Sergio Santana will be relied heavily upon heavily to score the goals, but I expect a few from loanee Stevan Jovetic as well.
    The formation that will be used in cup games, with the reserve players involved, will be the 3-2-2-2-1 with the following players in the starting eleven: Michel, Da Costa, Mendoza, Patlan, Araujo, Mejia, Baez, Solis, Fabian, Padilla, Arellano. Once again, three at the back this time with two holding midfielders for protection though. These two defensive midfielders come in the shape of Patricio Araujo and Edgar Mejia, two very talented 20 year olds who are expected to break down attacks before the three man defence can be reached. Xavier Baez and Edgar Solis will provide electric pace down the wings, provding service for Omar Arellano who must be in scoring form as the loan striker. 19 year old Marco Fabian and 21 year old Jesus Padilla provide Arellano with support as second strikers. This starting eleven with many young players could cause some surprising upsets this season in my opinion.
