  1. Re: Official Red Devils thread Curious how Carrick hasn't even made the bench twice this season, and played poorly in the other showing. Same with Anderson, he was invisible in that wide position on Wednesday.
  2. Re: SM Forumers on Football Manager Live reports are a nice touch, and I love the effort you're putting into this, but you can't expect everybody to be online watching it at the same time. Maybe if you said one evening in advance "I'm going to do a LIVE match report tomorrow at 7pm GMT for the Cup match between Leeds and Liverpool", then I'm sure people would log in to see what happens.
  3. Re: Official Red Devils thread Who cares? It's a glorified friendly. Was a pretty good game but I couldn't care less about the result.
  4. Re: Official Red Devils thread 2-1 to Chelsea today I reckon. Simply because they have the same team as last year, and Man Utd are lacking Van der Sar, Vidic, Ronaldo and Tevez.
  5. Re: SM Forumers on Football Manager I laughed at Nathan 'Kaka' Kirby. He's a machine!
  6. Re: SM Forumers on Football Manager Nice reports, Tom, and right results too. Baseball Furie, you missed a penalty! Obviously I stepped up 2 minutes later and told you to "Watch and learn."
  7. Re: SM Forumers on Football Manager Wow, 2 goals and a MotM! 7.26 is a decent average rating in FM too. Five good buys by the way, especially Hernanes if it goes through. Post a screenie of me please.
  8. Re: SM Forumers on Football Manager That's one heck of a reserve team! Nice work, Tom.
  9. Re: Official Red Devils thread Couldn't agree more. Fletcher over Anderson every time.
  10. Re: Official Red Devils thread Will be interesting to see who partners Carrick in central midfield: Anderson, Fletcher or possibly Gibson? The latter continues to impress me. With the very attacking nature of Valencia and Nani on the pitch, Ferguson may choose Fletcher to offer some defensive balance to the midfield.
  11. Re: Official Red Devils thread That looks quite likely to me, except O'Shea for Rafael because he's injured.
  12. Re: Fabio and Rafael da Silva - Man Utd's Brazilian Twins So for my 1,000th post I decided to return to the only decent thread I've ever made. As a special treat, I've completed a major update of the opening post, with up-to-date statistics, reports and new videos, including an embedded video of Rafael's goal against Arsenal (which I thoroughly encourage you take a lot at again, just because it's a beauty.) After what you all know was an overwhelming debut season for Rafael (and an equally underwhelming one for Fabio), the future looks bright for the coming season, due to kick-off next weekend. Rafael will fight Gary Neville, Wes Brown, John O'Shea and new-kid-on-the-block Ritchie De Laet for that right back crown. Fabio faces less, but much tougher competition in the form of Patrice Evra, who shows no signs of being removed as United's first-choice left back. Pre-season looks optomistic for Fabio, who made 6 appearances from 7 games (3 starts, 3 subs, 297 minutes.) Rafael, on the other hand, did not play any matches, possibly due to injury - can anyone confirm this? Still, barring more injuries, Rafael will be looking to play as many matches, if not more than he did last year (27 appearances), as he continues to develope as one of the Premiership's rising young stars. Fabio will also no doubt want to eclipse the 2 appearances he made last season, and odds are on that he will. Looking forward to another season of English football!
  13. Re: SM Forumers on Football Manager Decided to change to DM, might like to add Heading 15, Stamina 15. I'm Alonso-esque.

  15. Re: Official Red Devils thread The new kit is starting to grow on me... Not too sure about the Valencia one though. The bat effect is cool but the sponsor should be written in orange. I should design football kits. Edit:
  16. Re: Official Red Devils thread Congratulations. Mine still works... ATDHE
  17. Re: Official Red Devils thread Valencia are now a man down (ran out of subs, and with an injured player now) and 1-0 down. Not looking rosey for them. Still, a more exciting match than Juventus last year. The second most boring match I've ever been to. The other was a Spurs-Charlton game. Edit: They've just brought on their sub keeper.
  18. Re: Official Red Devils thread Thank you very much. Did I miss much in the first half? Edit: Just turned on and they scored. I'm a good luck charm.
  19. Re: Official Red Devils thread Valencia won't sell Villa, but I'd love to see Silva at Old Trafford. Like Ken said however, there aren't any Spanish players at United which doesn't do them any favours. £20-£25m are the reported values I've seen for Silva.
