  1. Re: Sell Cristiano Ronaldo? I got man u in GC19 and decided i didn't want ronaldo as he always gets poor ratings in matches like 6-7's so i set about offloading him. The best offer i got was robinho and ramos which i accepted but madrid chairman wasn't happy and when i tried to rework the deal as 2 parts madrid manager had change of mind. the deal i did in the end was iniesta and hleb and it's worked out brilliantly as they have 6 goals and 6 assists between them in 5 games and we sit top of the table (for now!). Like the guy above said use ribas as you need him and then bring in someone else you need even if he is a rating less than chivu. let us know how u get on
  2. Re: Wilshere still isn't on DB? The problem i have with youth players is that it can take 2-3 season for them to cement a place in a first team now 2-3 seasons in real life is 6-9 seasons in SM so i wonder if after all the wages and time wasted whether it is really worth buying them. A setup's life is 20 seasons and by the end of season 2 you can get a 90 here and there when a club becomes unmanaged. Now don't get me wrong i have the likes of erasmus, saivet and parejo in most of my teams but i've recently begun auctioning them off for a couple of million as the rewards take 2 long. I'd rather have a good team now then a brilliant one in 5 seasons time... sure this will cause some discussions but just my opinion, i will however be going for man u's twins when they are added
  3. Re: Gold Championship 20 Match Reports/Transfer Thread Nantes Latest Yesterday French side Nantes announced Englishman Dan Walmsley as their new manager. The new man promised big things to his supporters... 'It is time for this sleeping giant to wake up and become a major force in not only french but european football, and i AM the man to do that task. The days of old will return here and the beautiful one touch football that was formally associated with this club is coming back - you can be sure of that!' Dan also went onto lay down the gauntlet to French Champions Lyon 'I'm not going to do a Mourinho and say i am going to win the league, cups and Euro this season but i will start building a squad capable of delivering silverware starting from next season. Lyon have it tough with so many teams gunning for their blood following their domination of france, you have st ettiene, bordeuax and auxerre to name but a few so i hope he knows what he's up against.' Meanwhile Nantes announced their first signing in 22 year old Ghanian, Anthony Annan, the CM will be a key player for the french side. Big things are expected from the midfielder annan. More to follow shortly.
  4. Re: Gold Championship 19 Match Report and Transfer News Manchester United 3 - 2 Tottenham Hotspurs Another game, Another win for united and the win at old trafford against spurs was enough to send them to the top of the table following Chelsea shocking 4 - 0 defeat to Liverpool. The inform trio of David Villa, Ibrahomivic and Hleb saw off the Londoners in an end-to-end game of football. Transfer News Luis Nani is still at Manchester United following clear the air talks with manager Dan Walmsley. The winger was believed to be on his way to Athletico madrid in a swap deal but the manager decided against after hearing the Portuguese wizard talk about his desire and commitment to the red shirt. United moved a step closer to bolstering their defence this morning with an unnamed CB and LB being lined up to provide cover to the current back four. Dan Walmsley had to say 'We're in talks with 2 defenders right now and so far everything has gone well if i can secure these signings then i have me GK, D and F areas covered which will leave me with just 2 Midfielders to sign before i have 2 quality players in every position. From then i will leave the team to gel together for the season before deciding where to build on from, from there.
  5. Re: SM do the right thing! i was totally with you on this one mate although it now means that arshavin will defo not be at Manchester Utd (This season anyway!). BTW how is rooney doing?
  6. Re: Gold Championship 19 Match Report and Transfer News Stoke City 1 - 4 Manchester United Manchester United breezed passed Stoke City with a stunning performance away from home which fired them to 2nd in the table 2 points behind leaders Chelsea. 2 Goals from Iniesta and Ibrahimovic secured a victory for the red devils. United have a tough few games ahead with the fixture list reading Tottenham, Villa, Man City, Arsenal and Chelsea. Manager Dan Walmsley spoke of the importance of picking up results here 'It's a tough fixture list and no doubt the SMFA have played some role in making our bid for 3 successive titles a lot harder but we have the quality to come out of these games on top we just need to give 110% every game. Latest Transfer Talk Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, Luis Nani and Anderson are all available through P/e deals. players 90+ and 30- will be considered in deals. United are in need of a RM, CM, F or a CB so please don't hesitate to enquire about one of the following players. Breaking News Manchester United have agreed a deal to bring RM Maxi Rodriguez to Old Trafford. The 93 rated Argentinian will switch to England tommorow in a deal that will see 3rd choice keeper Ben Foster, 10million and Luis Nani go the other way. Manager Dan Walmsley had to say 'I'm delighted with this deal maxi will bring quality and spark to the team and will push alexander hleb for that right sided position. I spoke with foster earlier in the season and told him his chances of a game here were very slim and we decided it best for him to look for another club.' It feels more like a straight swap to the United manager between maxi and nani. 'I know nani is a tremendous prospect and i see his rating increasing soon but i still think this deal is right for the club, who knows maybe he will be back here again one day?' Meanwhile united continue their pursuit for a 2nd LB to cover Patrice Evra, several names young and old have been linked with the club including brazilian legend roberto carlos and mexican youngster Edgar Castillo.
  7. Re: Gold Championship 19 Match Report and Transfer News As Manchester United Manager in GC19 and a team that was after arshavin but was beaten to him by inter, i've gotta say i agree with Inter manager here, reversing the transfers is a farce as there is no cheating. Fair enough he made the transfers, lost some games and left but the fact of the matter is if the Fluminese manager didn't like it that the clubs former 2 best players are gone then he shouldn't have joined in the first place. I mean how many of you here go on best clubs available now and again to see who is available and see someone in the top 10 click on the squad to see there best players have gone. you just click back and move on because they aren't any good anymore you dont join up and ask for them back you either turn away or join up and rebuild. just my 2 cents. PS - I will have another look at arshavin now though Lol
  8. Re: What is the right position for these formations? Thanks again for the help guys
  9. Re: What is the right position for these formations? thanks for the responses guys, appreciated
  10. Hi people, can you tell me which position is supposed to be used in these formations as i'm not sure if i'm doing it right... Thanks 3 - 4 - 1 - 2 = Are the three defenders meant to be CB's or 1 CB, 1 RB and 1 LB. The theory i had was 3 CB stay back and offer more protection, you could then use wingers on the sides to attack. Alternativley 2 full backs reduce your defence but offer more attacking options as they look to push up the field. Or is there no right and wrong answer? lol sorry 3 - 4 - 2 - 1 = Is the forward supposed to be a CF with the 2 men behind either F or AM. Thanks and finally... 4 - 3 - 3 = Are the 3 midfielders supposed to be CM or 1 CM 1 Rm and LM Thanks alot
  11. Re: Gold Championship 19 Match Report and Transfer News Sunderland 0 - 1 Manchester United Alexander Hleb was the hero as United left their supporters on the brink again following a battling performance by sunderland. United have made it hard for themselves so far this season, last week they were 3 - 0 down at home against wigan only to stage a comeback and draw the game 3-3 this time though it was a last minute winner that ensured they stay in touch with the inform Arsenal and Chelsea. Transfer News United look set to finally complete the signing Christiano Lucarilli after the 2 clubs reached an agreement for the player. The Italian striker accepts his chances of first team football could be limited at old trafford to just cup games but the player said he was determined to break his way into the team past david villa, ibrahmovic and adriano. United also have a deal to bring an unnamed forward to old trafford. The deal will complete the reigning champions attacking options so manager dan walmsley can look to bring in a replacement to van der sar when the dutchmen decides to call it a day
  12. Re: Weird blocked deals yea i keep getting a deal in gc19 blocked but ti's gone so low now that there's no point the other manager selling him me. i'm man utd and i tried to by F 90 cesar Delgardo from lyon for 18m stopped then 16 stopped and then 14 stopped. never done any deals with lyon just loaned them anderson. gutting really because i only have 3 strikers and with the cups coming up he would of been the perfect deal considering i got a 90 for cash only.
  13. Re: Fairer Way Of Getting The Best Teams? well i'm glad that they made gc19 randomly because i got a good team for once! Man utd and my cousin got bolton. my other GC teams are Darlington and Huddlesfield so i was chuffed to at last get my hands on a good team. i hope they make the next one random also as i never stood a chance in gc 18 half of the teams were gone before i even got onto the page and i online at 2am
  14. Spent an hour early hours (4:43?!) this morning designing a little website for my World Championship side in 1070. Feyenoord i joined bang on halfway last season when my team had played 19 (duh!) and were sitting 3rd. We finished 1st and go up to division 4 this season. Anyway Division 4 is filled up with lots of family memebers and friends and we all go through another site using pre and post-matcher conferences to talk about players coming and out and tactics etc to create a bit of banter. anyhow this is my little site which will display the weekly news of my club, anyone else do anything like this? PS - not the greatest website i know, not too good at these things.
  15. Re: Gold Championship 19 Match Report and Transfer News Transfer News Manchester United today revealed that Wayne Rooney has left Old Trafford and made his journey to the San Siro in a swap deal with Zlatan Ibrahomivic and Leito Adriano. Manager Dan Walmsley had to say 'It's sad to see wayne go but with few attacking options this was one of the ways we could not only sustain the quality of our attack but also add to the quantity.' The deal also involves 3 other players with RB Maicon headed to old trafford today for a medical which if passed successfully will allow united to unveil him as their second signing in 2 days. The deal is believed to involve owen Hargreaves and John O Shea, Maicon will partner Vidic, Ferdinand and Evra across the back 4. United also announced a deal with Shorpe United which means that they will bring CB youngster Jack Cork to Old Trafford in the next couple of days. The deal reported to be around 3million also includes the option to loan ben foster for the season. Johnny Evans has also gone on loan to Shorpe although it is believed he may be called back later in the season as defensive cover when the domestic and european cups begin. Finally, the deal for Christaiano Luccarili isn't off just yet although United pulled the plug on the deal after reaching an agreement with Internationazle regarding rooney. Manager Dan walmsley has confirmed he is still interested in the player as back up to Ibrahmovic, villa and Adriano. Dan said 'It's important we keep a big enough squad to be able to fight on all fronts, you look at some of the squad rosters and they may not have enough resources to compete fully this season which is why i've tried to keep the squad big enough. There are 3 players out on loan who will be called back as the schedule builds up. It means we have 2 players in every positions and the replacements are quality ones also.' More news to follow on the above transfer stories.
  16. Re: Gold Championship 19 Match Report and Transfer News Everton 0 - 2 Manchester United The newley formed partnership between wayne rooney and david villa played out to be an important one as manchester united outfought everton away from home to pick up 3 points in their first game. Rooney opened the scoring 21st minute and villa made sure fo the tie on 58minute seizing on a defensive error. Transfer News Christiano Ronaldo completed his move from manchester United last night after lots of negitiotion between several clubs. Real Madrid had an offer of sergio ramos and robinho accpeted only for the spanish sides chairman to close the deal. After several discussions between the 2 managers real pulled out of negitionations to bring ronaldo to madrid in a 2 part deal. Step in Inter milan the italian champions who have been busy in the transfer market also had an offer of Maicon and Cambiasso accpeted only for Manchester United manager Dan Walmsley to cancel the deal at the last moment. Liverpool offered Torres and 30mil but to no avial with Chelsea offering essien and carvolho or kalou only to see their attempts overturned. Finally Barcelona the Catalan giants saw their first bid of iniesta and puyol rejected but accepted a counter offer of hleb and iniesta and the deal went through this morning. United are in talks with a striker after seeing their bid for parma forward lucarelli. United are currently short upfront with only Rooney and villa assisted buy Manucho who is believed to be involved in the deal.
  17. Re: Gold Championship 19 Match Report and Transfer News Breaking News Christiano Ronaldo's proposed move to real madrid fell through last night as Real Madrids Chairman was not happy with the deal. Manchester United's new manager has since been in touch with real regarding the player making his way to spain in a two-part bid. However Real must act quickly as Liverpool have made a firm offer of Macherona and Torres for the Portuguese wizard. United also turned down the oppurtunuty to sign Zlatan Ibrahomovich from inter Milan in exchange for Wayne Rooney. United have been reasonably quiet so far in the transfer market with Castro and Villa being their only first team signings. They have however added to their youth squad with some promising young players joining in cash deals.
  18. Re: Gold Championship 19 Match Report and Transfer News Breaking News Reports emerging from Old Trafford rumour that Christano Ronaldo has finally got his move to real madrid following a summer of gossip, allegations and mischeif. The deal is believed to involve robinho and sergio ramos going the opposite way to Manchester. Another breaking report is rumours suggesting that carlos Teves is swapping clubs with david Villa. The spanish side Seville are believed to be paying around 8million also to secure the argentinian striker. These 3 players will join german RB castro who signed this morning along with hot prospect daniel parejo. more news on this story tommorow
  19. Re: Gold Championship 19 - Transfer News and Match Report Thread Breaking News The Official MUFC website last night released breaking news. Sir Alex Ferguson has decided to step down as manager and retire from management following the clubs recent success in both domestic and europeon tournaments. Sir Alex had to say 'I felt the time was right to step down from the club i had doubt about my decision to continue after we won the treble in 1999 as it was a beautiful moment. This triump has been sweeter and the team has the potential to repeat that success under the new manager.' Sir Alex played a big part of the appoinment of his replacement, Dan Walmsley has spent much of his managerial career at smaller clubs rejuvenating players careers and signing youth talent to carve out success. He held a Press conference earlier this morning... Dan, Which players are you looking to bring in right now? There's no secret this is a fantastic squad but i feel we need stregthening up front with another striker to take some pressure off rooney and teves. i also need a RB as the legendary Neville will be looking to wind down his career and i need a quality player to take his place. Any Names? Well, with agreed a deal for a RB, and i'm talks with valencia to try and bring David Villa here.
  20. What do you guys think about the injuries on SM? I think that they can be a little unreasonable on SM considering the amount of league games we play in the course of an injury compared to in real-life. For example i have 4 players injured in my Feyenoord Setup and they will now all miss the rest of the season. (Okay there's only 3 games left) but they were missing a couple of games ago and will not be able to start next season for the first few games. I'm not moaning because i've managed fine without them and have extended my lead at the top of the table to 4 point with a win against 2nd last night. I'm also 5 points clear of 4th and face teams down in the bottom of the table in my last three games. Plus i got Henry on loan for my injured Borriello (Thanks Barca) Now i understand this happens as injuries are very prone in football but i think that different injuries should be grouped to a number of games. For example a broken nose has a match ban of 1 game twisted ankle 3 games torn hamstring 5 games etc they should diffently be a season ending injury i agree with this because it does happen but almost every injury halfway through the season means you lose the player for rest of the season. Just my opinion but i think they should be game related.
  21. Re: Gold Championship 5 official match thread Huddersfield Town FC Huddersfield town picked up 3 points last night in a dramatic 3-2 victory over Brighton and Hove Albion. The win puts the Terriers in 5th position in Division 3. New Manager Dan Walmsley praised his players for the performance he said 'I've made a 14 signings in such a small amount of time but the players gelled together and got us a win which holds us in good stead for a promotion chase.' Next up is Crewe Alexandra at home on Saturday... I'm looking to pair up with a big team to help me with my promotion chasing squad. I think my team is now the 3rd best in the league following the signings i've made but we are 5th and 5 points behinf 3rd so there is a small gap to close but it shouldn't be a problem
  22. Hey Everyone I sent this suggestion off to SM about a week or 2 ago but haven't heard anything back so i guess they weren't interested but i'd like to know what you guys think. Having recently become a gold member i've joined Huddlesfield Town in GC5 where some of the family plays and i've found it's a lot harder than any other setup to sign players- obviously because you can't deal with so many unavailable clubs but also because player swaps are the preferred method of payment than cash. I think this is something that SM lacks.... Cash isn't king like it is in real life. Perhaps another club comes in for a 90 rating player that is just being 'hogged' by a big club but not playing. They are just rejected unless they have another player worth anything (Another 90 rating in another position). The reason for this is the amount of games in GC's especially at the start of the season and if you are in the cups. I think that players fitness should recover faster allowing teams to have smaller clubs which would inturn allow the smaller clubs to compete later on in the game when they have been successful in the lower leagues but now need to start making quality signings to compete in the higher leagues. When you are out of the cups i understand that it is more than fast enough as it is possible to have every player 100 for each league game so maybe it should be faster for the first 3-4 rounds of the cups and then later in back to normal. Of course teams in the cups at the later stages are going to suffer in the league but not to the point where they need squads of 100 players most of which would happily walk into the starting line-ups of the teams just a divison lower struggling to sign anyone half decent. Long post but let me know what you think...

    Quick Cash

    Re: Quick Cash Cheers for the helps guys. I though i would have to wait, ah well nevermind. I did consider the loan option but was pretty sure that they didn't count towards your squad total at least someone has confirmed that for me. Man City have offered for the player no and it should go through in a few hours. still have aout 4 youth players who are available for cheap though so i'll just wait and hopoe no-one signs them before saturday. On another note increased my lead at the top of the table tonight with a 3 - 0 victory against 3rd place away from home. with 8 games left to go it will be fun. Thankfully i've increased the gap from my nearest family member to 5 points from 2.

    Quick Cash

    Hey Everyone I'm looking at a way to raise some quick cash to sign a player without a club in my setup who will surely be going up soon. My problem is, 1. I'm in 200k debt until my next home game 2. i have only 18 players and all of them but one has a transfer ban. Is there anyway of making cash avaible before 2moro cutoff point? I only need to make 300k to cover the debt and sign the player before anyone else does! Thanks
