  1. Re: Brand New.. just a couple questions.

    I am really enjoying the set up of this game. I am literally like a hour into trying to figure it out. My biggest question is now that I am in a league' date=' am I building for the future as well or just for this season? I don't understand if I should rebuild for future years or every year starts anew?

    All the ages of the players seem correct, so it doesn't look like it advances year to year.. I am just really confused as to what I am getting into.

    I will learn through trial by fire with transfer list etc..

    Just took over Blackpool.. if I do well enough to go into the next league.. will I?

    Just like all new games.. takes a learning curve I guess..[/quote']

    The players you own & cash balance all carry on to the next season so with those two areas its always good to plan longterm.

    Players do not age every season though but when their birthday is in real life. Also they only retire when they do in real life so the database is always the same as those playing.

  2. Re: Diego Costa for Falcao or Higuain

    Definitely between Costa & Falcao as don't think Higuain will rise again especially while at Napoli so would give him a miss.

    If I had Costa would hold off the deal to see where Falcao ends up at the end of the summer..... If still at Monaco would keep Costa even though Falcao is for me a much better player.

  4. Re: Liga BBVA Ratings Predictions thread

    Barcelona are treated way to kind. In reality Xavi is a 92 now but at the very least a 94 on SM. Experienced players for other club ratings tumble even if still performing yet his stay far above his level. He has the same as Suarez!

    My problem with SM is with Moreno... ***??? Rakitic 92 Moreno 89

    Moreno has not been great this past season 89 is fair for me. Compare to the other high potential defenders in his age bracket & it fits in well.

  5. Re: Help With Deal(s) Thread...

    Aymeric Laporte or Marc Bartra or Davide Santon or De Sciglio or Phil Jones or Juan Jesus for defenders?

    I can only afford one' date=' can someone rank them and give some comments? Thanks :)[/quote']

    Aymeric Laporte by some distance for me. Should rise by the end of the week & destined for the very top of the game.

  6. Re: Official Chelsea FC Thread

    Fantastic to sign Costa & at a decent price. Really cannot wait to see a quality striker play in-front of the midfield.

    If the Cesc transfer goes through just hope Mourinho is behind it rather than the club. Can see it ending in trouble if not. Cesc is just not what I see Mourinho desires especially when he already has Hazard & Oscar.... Its strange.

  7. Re: Official Liverpool Thread

    As explained' date=' the market is now a new one due to the increased TV revenue.


    Well written theory but completely ignoring buying from other countries. The higher tv money puts English clubs in a fantastic position to buy talent from other leagues. Buying Lallana for anywhere close to 20m is just buying into hype, arguably lazy on behalf of the Liverpool transfer decision makers & although granted adds competition & flexibility does not improve the first team.

  8. Re: German AMs

    I've got Draxler' date=' Kroos, Reus, Muller, Kroos and Gotze rotating in the AM spots on my first team. I also have Meyer and Goretzka who are getting really close to a point where they will be pushing for the first team. As a Schalke fan, I'd like to keep the Schalke trio; of the other 4, which one is expendable as I don't think I'd be able to play them all (plus, I feel like I'm player hogging).[/quote']

    Can you not just loan out Goretzka & Meyer for a season or two at a smaller managed club to postpone the decision? Definitely would not sell Reus & its still a bit early to really see how Pep plans to shape Bayern.

    Concerns about player hogging are admirable but unless everyone feels like this in the GW or you have squad limits you are just benefiting others.

  9. Re: Help With Deal(s) Thread...

    i have offered agger+mignolet for my miranda....

    should i accept?

    (my keeper is asenjo!)

    I would keep Miranda. Agger & Mignolet are pretty average players.

    Miranda should rise & big move possible. Also Asenjo I don't think has signed for Villareal yet so maybe Atleti no.1 next season.

  10. Re: Help With Deal(s) Thread...

    i have a dilemma- i bidded for luke shaw from southampton(external)-the bid was 2m plus cristian baroni

    another team bidded 5.5m for shaw + giussepe sculli

    both got accepted' date='which deal will go through?[/quote']

    Whats the dilemma? Just wait & see. I have attempted to add up the value of deals when buying from external & its hard to know 100% unless big difference. Definitely don't withdraw.
