  1. Re: European Championship 5000 Discussion Thread

    Bit of conundrum...got BARCA on offer...thought I'd rejected them, but somehow still have them on offer....and now tempted to take them. BUT I've built a very good team at SCHALKE, with the likes of DE ROSSI, MODRIC & CAVANI, and whilst Barca have an awesome squad, what would I do with it? How could I ever improve it? It's just that I'm having awful results in this game world with SCHALKE, still stuck in the bottom division, going nowhere....what to do? Stick or twist? Also, anyone interested in BARCA, or know anyone who wants to join this game world, in case I reject?

  2. Re: Ec - 5910

    The net 48 hours are going to be interesting for sure...

    Where will Ronaldo and Messi end up?!

    Then we have the likes of managers' favourite' date=' will them managers be lucky enough to grab who they want?

    Players like Reus, Muller, Gotze, Falcao and so on...

    Can't wait for the results of these transfers![/center']

    clearly not at Birmingham....more likely to get DECO, ZANETTI & a bag of manky chips...

  3. Re: WC 33333 Discussion Thread..



    A run of poor results has seen Inter creep closer to relegation from Division 1 - as the Nerazzurri slipped deeper into trouble following a 1-1 draw against relegation rivals Arsenal. With an ageing squad and low morale, manager Dougie House is struggling to keeping the Italian giants heads above water - though he remains positive that they can escape relegation, being just one point behind Arsenal & newly managed Shakhtar, with 5 games still to go.

    Next up for Inter is a trip to Spain to take on Valencia...

  4. Re: Gold Championship 100 Match Reports | Transfers



    Bayer Leverkusen secured promotion from the German second tier with around ten games to spare

    Having suffered a surprise relegation on the last day of last season, new man at the BayArena, Dougie House, promised to make up for relegation with a quick return to the Bundesliga, and Leverkusen have certainly done it in style, securing 28 wins from 33 games so far (with one game to go) and scoring a fantastic 101 goals in the process

    Of course the manager was quick to point out that this was no more than fans of the German giants should have expected, given the quality of the squad at his disposal and the poor quality of the other teams in the 2. Bundesliga.

    He also acknowleged that next season would be tougher - when his side would be up against some of the best players and managers in the world and whilst Leverkusen still have some quality players - the likes of KIESSLING, LENO, PAPADOPOULOUS & TOPRAK - the squad still needs an overhaul, relying too heavily on older players like CLAUDIO PIZARRO & SIMON ROLFES.

    A busy period of transfer activity awaits as Leverkusen prepare to return to Germany's top flight...

  5. Re: English Championship 106 - Discussion Thread



    Since taking over at Oxford we've had a great run of 11 points from 5 games (3 wins, 2 draws), helping us maintain a 5 point lead at the top of Division 4

    Our attacking outlook has seen us score an amazing 16 goals in those five games

    We've also been looking to balance the books - shipping out some poor players from an average squad and gradually replacing them with better players, whilst keeping an eye on the wage bill and transfer budget

    Hoping to build a solid future at the Kassam Stadium

  6. Re: German Championship 7554 - Discussions,M/Rs & Transfers

    Leaving a few teams' date=' as I need to cut down.

    Going to be becoming busy and won't be able to put much time to this club.

    Really enjoyed this team.

    Division 2 champions.

    Season 1 Shield Winners.

    Good luck to whoever takes them over.

    Also thanks to Pinkman for last season's predictions thread![/quote']

    Just picked them up - lost a lot of players to external since you quit, but on the plus side have a bit of money to rebuild :)

  7. Re: The Official Tottenham Hotspur Thread

    I take it that I cant compare the depth between Arsenal and Tottenhams squads?

    Im sorry sir' date=' I wont post in here ever again![/quote']

    Loving the politeness - and it wasn't aimed at any one in particular. Just seen a couple of pages about Arsenal.... not just comparing them with Spurs, mostly Villa fans ragging Arsenal on a Spurs thread - not that I care, just passing time

    Anyway - No Harm Meant

    And you sir, are a gentleman ;)

  8. Re: Premier League Discussion Thread

    You do realise that a midfield is only 4/5 members of an 11 man team? :rolleyes:

    Or are you so desperate to put words in my mouth and mis-quote me?

    We had a team that isn't that yet due to several new arrivals. They were holding on for a 1-0 and all of a sudden they're world beaters again? :rolleyes:

    Who do you support out of curiosity?

    I actually support Leeds, so have no reason whatsoever to cheer for Man U.

    I just think it's interesting all of this Man U bashing...before this it was Arsenal, but then they bring in one quality player and now it's Man U getting it. Man U brought in one player last season I seem to recall (all be it a very good one!) and went on to win the league at a canter. A lack of transfer activity doesn't always mean anything - personally I question some of the buys made this window, especially by Man City (over-rated & over-priced players) and Spurs/Chelsea (too many players bought who play the same positions). Sometimes teams seem to buy players for the sake of it....

    And I don't think I'm putting words in your mouth - you said the midfield of Man U was mediocre compared to Spurs. I don't buy it - you have some highly sort after players, but untested and unproven in the premier league. Man U have a midfield that have won a lot of trophies, and have added to it with Fellaini. I just don't see how you can describe them as mediocre. Perhaps they are a little workmanlike, and don't have tons of flair, but whether it's grinding out points at Stoke, defending manfully at the Bernebau, or ripping up Swansea on the counter - I'd take Man U's midfield over Spurs anyday. The flair comes in the form of Rooney, RVP, Kagawa, even Nani on form. When Spurs' midfiled have won the sort of stuff the likes of Carrick have - then we can talk... ;)

  9. Re: Premier League Discussion Thread

    Chelsea - Hazard' date=' Mata, Willian, Oscar, Lampard, Ramires, Mikel, De Bruyne, Schurrle

    City - Silva, Navas, Fernandinho, Yaya, Nasri, Milner, Garcia, Rodwell

    Arsenal - Ozil, Cazorla, Wheelchair, Arteta, Flamini, Ramsey, Walcott, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Rosicky, Diaby

    Tottenham - Lamela, Eriksen, Paulinho, Dembele, Sandro, Capoue, Holtby, Lennon, Townsend, Chadli, Gylfi

    United - Carrick, Fellaini, Giggs, Cleverley, Nani, Valencia, Young, Kagawa, Anderson, Zaha

    Quality wise I think your midfield bunch is 5th and for a team aspiring to be champions in every competition they're competing in, that's pretty mediocre.[/quote']

    It'll be interesting to see the comparative success in terms of league positions and trophies between Man U & Spurs come the end of the season now that you've decided how mediocre Man U are.... I seem to recall not so long ago some of you Spurs fans going on about how superior you are to Arsenal now....how did that work out for you?

  10. Re: Premier League Discussion Thread

    Love everyone on here doubting man u - they won't win the title, won't even finish top 4, average/poor team with no quality players...

    No doubt they should have added more in the transfer window but you guys are muppets - Man U will be top 4, no doubt, and they still have a top squad - other teams might have bought a few stars, but Man U have a team, a team that is used to playing together and used to getting results and that hasn't changed

  11. Re: The Official Tottenham Hotspur Thread

    What's changed since two weeks ago? You've signed Özil (a fantastic player' date=' in a position you didn't need) and Flamini (need I say more). So indirectly you're suggesting that Flamini and Ozil are the answers to your chronic depth problem?

    Please, already this season we've seen Sagna; a right back, playing at centre back for you. You better hope Giroud doesn't get injured in the near future with Podolski being out. And god forbid if Wilshere or Ozil get injured, you could end up going from Ozil to Rosicky.

    You should be worried about your depth. It's still as pathetic as it was 24 hours ago[/quote']

    I have no axe to grind - not an Arsenal or Spurs fan - but over the last month your obsession with Arsenal has gone into overdrive! What's with that? Barely an hour goes by without a post from you somewhere about the woes of Arsenal - and there's a real edge to some of it. You might need to seek help :P

  12. Re: The Official Tottenham Hotspur Thread

    According to the Telegraph' date=' Champions get £100m, last place gets just over £60m, so law of averages suggests about sixth would get £85m. I'm sure that Levy wouldn't spend nearly £100m without having a revenue forecast suggesting he could cover it.


    Are you forgetting about wages? Some of the Spurs players will be on a fair whack and that 85mil has got to cover that too. No doubt about it - their current spree is being paid from the anticipated Bale money. As a few others have said, it would be kinda funny if Real Madrid pulled out and left Spurs up the creak without a paddle :D
