  1. Re: Grand National 2008 I have decent record of picking winners in this race, with 11 winners in 31 years.Last year i had the second horse Mckelvey who i will ignore this year as it carries an extra 10lb.I usually back 3 or 4 horses in the race.This year i am selecting three,including two horses who fell in the national last year. SIMON BEWLEYS BERRY BUTLERS CABIN I use a system giving points for attributes like form,going,weight,course and distance etc. You need a horse that will jump well,has the stamina and a touch of class.You also don't want to be higher than 11st 7lb in the weights.TURKO came top in my system but i have ignored it as there too many factors against it: it is too high in the weights,too young at six,and has never won over course and distance,otherwise it has a great chance! There are some very good Irish horses in the race,their form this year is very poor but don't let that fool you! If you look at the top fifteen in the betting history suggests the winner will be likely to come from that group,although,anything can happen in the national. Finally,MR POINTMENT (11st 11lb)would be my fancy if it did not carry so much weight but as most of the fancied horses are carrying 10st 11lb or more i might be wrong to ignore it. CLOUDY LANE is obviously a worthy favourite but being small and the fact it might not take to the national fences or the distance of 4.4 miles i don't think it represents good value. Anyway good luck and i hope someone on the forum wins.
  2. Re: Gold Championship 7 PALMEIRAS BACK ON TRACK IMPRESSIVE DEFEAT OF INTERNACIONAL PALMEIRAS 2-0 INTERNACIONAL Javier YACUZZI made his debut in this match and goals by Man of The Match Ezequiel MAGGIOLO scored on 72 minutes and Ruben DE LA RED followed up five minutes later. DE LA RED is a transfer target for Real Madrid Castilla but manager Fruitbat is adamant that his star of the future is going nowhere. next fixture away to Cruz Azul.....
  3. Re: Gold Championship 11 - News, Transfers & Match Reports CRVENA ZVEZDA OFF TO A WINNING START FRUITBAT'S TEAM WIN 1-0 AT HOME TO FC PORTO A Carlos Renato goal was enough to beat a talented Porto team in a tight encounter. Newly appointed manager Fruitbat astonished the local fans by failing to pronounce the club name properly and for not knowing which country he was in. In future the press conferences will be conducted by one of the players Djordje Tutoric.The manager did add that "he was very happy with the result and optimistic that they will have a very good season." next fixture away to Benfica....

I am expecting to announce several new arrivals tomorrow."

  12. Re: Gold Championship 7 PALMEIRAS UPDATE Manager fruitbat has had a stuttering start to his managererial career,losing his first game in charge away at Boca Juniors and then two stalemates versus Pachuca and Racing. Initial forays into the transfer market have proved disappointing with failed bids for Gilberto Silva and David Bentley among others.However,extensive scouting networks in Brazil and Argentina have unearthed some talented young players who are not quite ready for first team action. We are delighted to announce the signing of the following players: Goncalves Silva LEONARDO PARANA Eldis FERNANDINHO SHIMIZU S PULSE Da Silva LEONARDO MOURA ESTUDIANTES Cicero JONATHAN CRUZEIRO Ezequil MAGGIOLO ESTUDIANTES Ferreira LEO MEDEIROS START Ferreira Filho MARIANO CRUZEIRO Henrique Antunes WILLIAM GREMIO Silva Assis VITOR JUNIOR free agent[/color] With more signings imminent! The Palmeiras Chairman had this to say: "Palmeiras are lying 17th in the table and we will need a lot of hard work to get out of this predicament.However,the last two results are acceptable but we have to start turning these draws into victories and give the fans something to cheer about".
  13. Re: Introducing Myself Hi Allahu.Welcome to the forum and to the SM game.I wish you luck as a manager and hope you enjoy your time here.I am a new manager too and i will help you in anyway i can.Regards.
  14. Re: Gold Championship 7 PALMEIRAS DEFEATED BUT NO SURPRISE BOCA JUNIORS 2-0 PALMEIRAS A patched up team of loan players and reserves were brave in defeat at La Bombanera to an experienced Boca Juniors side. After some initial activity regarding short term acquisitions Palmeiras manager fruitbat will now concentrate on the long term future of the playing staff with some high profile signings.

  17. Re: Gold Championship 7 NEW MANAGER AT PALMEIRAS FRUITBAT TAKES CONTROL OF THE STRUGGLING BRAZILIAN CLUB AND AIMS TO REVIVE THEIR FORTUNES AND FIGHT FOR HONOURS "My aim is to lift the morale of the players instill confidence and improve the quality of the playing staff.I will endeavour to attract top quality players and give excitement to the fans" I am really desperate for players in all departments and would appreciate any managers who could pm me with any players available for sale or loan rated 85-95.
  18. Re: World Championship 1057 NEW MANAGER AT AJAX AMSTERDAM The fortunes of this great club have taken a turn for the better as fruitbat takes control. I will attempt to preserve our place among the World's Elite Clubs. Ajax have already been busy in the transfer market with the signings of: Ibrahim Afellay Tim De Cler Abdoulaye Meite More comings and goings are expected... I am willing to listen to realistic offers for any of my squad. Next match is away to Sevilla,this will be a tough game and although we lost our previous match at home to Lyon,i am confident we can get a positive result tonight.

    New Manager

    Re: New Manager It was an excellent result to beat Liverpool but i've got a feeling that Liverpool will come with a late run and maybe snatch third place from Chelsea.How are Newcastle's ex players getting on Bellamy,Dyer,Solano and Bowyer? They all liked a drink but more often than not they did the business on the pitch.
