  1. Re: Mid-80s Risers? Lucas Piazon is no where near the first team so saying he is doing good as a regular is quite a stretch. He is young, talented, and promising but he won't ever be as good as Mata, Hazard or Oscar and even then he still has to compete with the likes of Kevin De Bruyne, Josh McEachran, and Marko Marin for a place on the bench. I doubt he'll see much playing time at Chelsea, more then likely he'll be loaned a few times before he is sold off a few seasons from now much like De Bruyne and McEachran.
  2. Re: ★The Official Forum GC - GC 222 - Discussion Thread ★ Another shocking loss to an unmanaged team sees Hull drop points in the league but my reserves with 4 players >80 manage to get me to the round of 16... Maybe I should just play my reserves in the league.
  3. Re: ★The Official Forum GC - GC 222 - Discussion Thread ★ Sorry about not doing the tipping comp I got caught up at work this week.

  5. Re: Hachim Mastour I think the kids he was playing against are horrible.
  6. Re: So many better than Neymar As a Chelsea supporter I can honestly say although Oscar is promising you are jumping the gun by saying is a good replacement for anyone especially Frank Lampard. Saying that he can replacement a 20 goal a season midfielder after a few good performances is silly as much as I want Oscar to succeed it's important to not get carried away. On topic Neymar is good, Neymar is over-hyped. Both can and are true. Do I think he will walk in an be an instant success in any league? No. Can he be an important player in Spain? Yes. Neymar will never be a forward in a physical league, he may never be overly successful in the Champions league but he would do well in La Liga (Out of the top European leagues)
  7. Re: ★The Official Forum GC - GC 222 - Match/Transfer Report Thread★ Blackburn 1 - 1 Hull City N.GOMES 5 F.CASTILLO 26 A THIAGO 81 (Red Card) Man Of The Match N. Gomes A promising away match turned into near catastrophe as Hull City came away from Ewood Park with 1 point and a suspension for star midfielder Alcantara Thiago. From the outset The Tigers were outclassed, giving up a goal in the 5th minute and trailing in all positive statistics throughout the game. Second string striker Fabian Castillo was able to bring the score level but Blackburn keeper Paul Robinson stuffed the feeble attack for the remainder of the game. Adding insult to the dropped points Thiago will be forced to sit out the upcoming cup game against Leicester City. Leicester City 2(4) - 2(5) Hull City N.DANNS 26 D.WARD 42, 74 A.KING 88 Man Of The Match T. Krul Faced with a non-existent reserve squad Hull's manager made the difficult decision to field a sub par team hoping that the reduced number of games would keep the starting 11 fresh throughout the season, the youngsters had other intentions though. After going a man down due to a blatant elbow from Hideto Takahashi and giving up a goal 20 year old forward Danny Ward netted a brace against a Leicester squad featuring all but two of their top players. The momentum held throughout the match with new keeper Tim Krul putting in a heroic performance to force the game to kicks. The victory could hardly be called definitive but the new found depth will help the manager throughout the increasingly long fixture list.

  11. Re: ★The Official Forum GC - GC 222 - Discussion Thread ★ Looks like I am going to be taking over the tipping competition for a week or so while LegendaryLemon is busy so to anyone who is interested I'll be putting up the fixture list for Turn 4 (round 2 of the competition) tomorrow.
  12. Re: ★The Official Forum GC - GC 222 - Tipping Comp. Thread★ Since LegendaryLemon hasn't been active the last few days I went ahead and calculated the results from Turn 1. It's too late to put out fixtures for Turn 3 so if Lemon hasn't returned in a day or two I'll come up with the matches for Turn 4. Not sure what format he was going to post these in so this is going to have to do for now. Position) Name - Total points (Points this week) 1) LegendaryLemon - 16pts (+16) 2) Cormac MC G - 11pts (+11) 3) Gonzodan - 6pts (+6) 4) Brendan - 3pts (+3) 4) Preppens - 3pts (+3) 5) Mental Mackem - 2pts (+2) Legendary pulling far ahead the first week from being the only manager to tip two results while Comac was the sole manager to tip one.
  13. Re: ★The Official Forum GC - GC 222 - Discussion Thread ★ Quite a few people have left or switched teams maybe the first page can be updated next time you are on LegendaryLemon.
  14. Re: ★The Official Forum GC - GC 222 - Match/Transfer Report Thread★ Hull City 4 - 1 Brentford N.PROSCHWITZ 7, 78 F.EL ALLAGUI 21 R.KOREN 55 F.MONTERO 57 Man Of The Match F. Montero Hull City drew Brentford in the first round of the English Shield, with the competition being a league lower and coach-less the fixture looked to be one sided even before kick off. The Tigers took full advantage and managed 30 shots on goal, 14 on target, and converted 4 of them in a domineering performance. The fantastic result puts Hull through to the 2nd round were they will face a struggling Leicester City at their own King Power Stadium. Charlton Athletic 1 - 3 Hull City P.MCSHANE 35 A.FARNERUD 54 R.FULLER 71 A.THIAGO 74 Man Of The MatchP. McShane The fixture schedule restricted celebration as The Tigers faced Charlton Athletic in their second league fixture after only a days rest as such the squad featured many fringe players as the starting 11 was given some much needed rest. Hull dominated the game from start to finish controlling the ball an impressive 61% of the game and were able to score 3 times despite only having 3 shots on target. The lack of finishing had been the biggest concern at KC Stadium coming into the season but with the 100% conversion rate achieved in this game those doubts may be put to rest. With momentum building Hull City are looking forward to the away match against Blackburn this Saturday.
  15. Re: ★The Official Forum GC - GC 222 - Match/Transfer Report Thread★ Hull City 2 - 3 Middlebrough F.Montero 3,87 C.Wilhelmsson 11 F.Meira 37 T.Henry 79 Man Of The Match T.Henry Hull opened the season with a difficult match against a Middlesbrough side totting the newly acquired strike partnership of Didier Drogba and Thierry Henry. The game couldn't have started better for the Tigers with star striker Freddy Montero scoring in the 3rd minute. Such clinical finishing wouldn't be repeated though with Hull only converting two of their 12 shots on target while Middlebrough netted 3 of their 5 shots on target. Hull City will need to replicate their outfield play and improve their finishing if they hope to contend for promotion this campaign.
  16. Re: ★The Official Forum GC - GC 222 - Discussion Thread ★ Tough 3-2 loss to Middlesbrough although with the strike partnership of Thierry Henry and Didier Drogba and they were the odds on favorite to win. More possession, more shots, more shots on target, more corners.. All I was missing was more goals.
