  1. Re: Gold Championship 1 News It's been an interesting couple of months at TSG Hoffenhiem, with a reshaping of my midfield almost being completed, there have been a few New Signings:- Fernandinho joined from Derby County in exchange for Jordan Henderson and Joel Campbell Andrea Poli joined from Celtic along with Federico Macheda in exchange for Mathieu Debuchy Jakub Blaszczkowski joined from Real Betis in exchange for Dejan Lovren and Abel Hernandez I've also made a new signing up front with Jackson Martinez arriving, also from Real Betis in exchange for Nacho Monreal and Koen Castee
  2. Re: New view of the website I work in change management and I've been disappointed for a number of years with how SM make changes... Here are some of the issues I have with the latest layout changes:- 1. Poor approach to testing. The layout appears OK in Google Chrome but is buggy is IE. How on earth was this allowed to go live? this indicates poor UAT and/or Operational Readiness testing. 2. Non existent communication. If you're going to change something tell your customers/users why you're making the change and what the benefits are...This NEVER happens on SM. 3. Priority/Resource Ma
  3. Re: Game World News Feed - updated A couple of suggestions that could be enhancements.... 1. Think about the priority of how messages should appear in the news feed, if there is a news item with lots of comments you don't want it to disappear the next time a batch of transfers complete. 2. Have a prompt to ask a player to comment on stories relevant to their club when they enter the club page, this could be a recently completed transfer, result or title win. It could also be a response to a comment made by a rival manager - Maybe have an option to turn this feature off in case some manager
  4. Re: Game World News Feed - updated The idea in principle is a good one, the more involved a player is in a game world the more likely they are to stay, which means more managed clubs... But some of the layout decisions involved in this change are quite poor, as others have said there is now too much wasted space and it makes the news feed much harder to read and the icons make the club news much harder to read too. Here's a suggestion, use a small comment symbol like the BBC do (http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/) and put a number after it to show how many comments there are..a player t
  5. Re: Gold Championship 1 News I have a tough decision to make!! I've been offered the Real Madrid job, they have quality players and an insane amount of cash! But my TSG Hoffenhiem team is my favourite Soccer Manager team, when I took them over they were bottom of the German 2nd division and had nothing in their squad and i've built them up from that!! I've managed them for 450 games, but only won one trophy... I was disappointed not to win the shield recently (well done James) and I've been struggling for a couple of seasons with my league form... Not sure what to do...does anyone have any
  6. Re: Gold Championship 1 News Update from TSG Hoffenhiem It's taken 6 months but i've finally been able to sort out my goalkeeper situation! back in February I trade Stephane Ruffier with Flamengo for Mathieu Debuchy (who subsequently rose to a 90) + £15m, I was very happy with the deal at the time, but I found it impossible to sign a replacement. In July I thought I could sign Ali Ahamada when the manager of Wolfsberg (now at UNAM) went crazy and traded all his best players for dross at unavailable clubs (maybe so he could resign them for UNAM...just like he attempted to..). Despite selli
  7. Re: Gold Championship 1 News TSG Hoffenhiem Update I've been doing a few deals to try and rebalance my squad... New Arrivals Lewis Holtby arrives from FC Porto in exchange for Christopher Samba plus £4m. Vila Didac arrives from Shakhtar in exchange for Giandomenico Mesto. John Guidetti re-signs from Juventus for £6m. I'll be playing Didac and Adbennour at left back next season so I'm looking to trade Jeremy Mathieu (89, LB/LM, 28, Valencia) ideally for a goalkepeer, message me if you'd like to do a deal.
  8. Re: Gold Championship 1 News I'm looking to make a few changes to my squad... I'll discuss deals for any of the following players:- Mathieu - LB/LM 89 Mesto - RM/RM 89 Zapata - CB/RB 89 Samba - CB 88 Cohade - CM/DM 88 Henderson - CM/RM 88 Cerci - Wing/Fwd 88 Ngog - CF 86 I'm looking for full backs, 1 central midfielder, wide midfielders and a forward.
  9. Re: Gold Championship 1 News I completely agree, you could sort that squad in no time. I thought Thaliwal was going to be an interesting addition to GC1 after I enquired about Benatia, and his opening offer was an exchange for Jordan Henderson, Abel Hernandez AND Alberto Botia...
  10. Re: Gold Championship Format I started this thread a while ago, but didn't have any responses...I thought I'd bump it back up the list! I'm hoping SM will introduce the new match engine early this year, I hope that is followed by an improved GC format...maybe something along the lines of what I posted previously?
  11. Re: Available Teams, No Job Offers! (GC Teams Only!) Dynamo Kiev GC3 Eastern Europe. 1 x 89 (Lomearts) 5 x 88 (Griezmann, Wesley, Danic, Ospina & Danze) 80 man squad, oldest player is 29, only 4 players over 25. Other decent players include Kucka (signed with Inter, on load at Genoa until the end of the season) and De Bruyne (rumoured to be signing for Chelsea). £82.5m in the bank. Top teams in the oldest GCs never become available and even half decent ones like this are quite rare!
  12. Re: Many changes to the game comming up Does anyone have any ideas what the media centre might be?
  13. Re: Gold Championship 1 News TSG Hoffenhiem Update Almost a third of the season has already gone and its been an interesting start in Germany. After 11 games Hoffenhiem are 3rd on 18 points, 7 behind leaders Bayern Munich. The improvements made to my defence and in goal since last season have made a big difference, I'm conceding 1.09 goals per game this season compared to 1.65 last season, an improvement of 0.56 goals per game!! Only 3 teams have conceded fewer goals so far this season. I've lost 1 game so far, only Greuther Fürth who are undefeated but sit 11th have lost fewer. I have d
