    Is there any reporting mechanism on SM? Some suspicious activity in one of my GWs.

    Locked into a title race with another team, level on points but I'm ahead on GD. I had a string of unmanaged teams to close the season, which should be manageable to get maximum points.

    A new manager comes in to take over the team I'm facing on Matchday 37. Fortunately, I beat this team to keep my edge in the title race.

    This manager then quits this team, and takes over the team I'm facing on Matchday 38! Surely that can't be a coincidence... 

    Thanks to everyone who responded!

    I wrapped up a 3-2 win, sealing the title on GD! No thanks btw to my keeper De Gea, who conceded 2 goals from 2 shots on target. Rather timely though given his performance in the shootout yesterday...

  3. Some slightly dodgy behaviour in one of my GWs.

    I'm in a small-ish game world, locked in a tight title race with a two point lead over manager A, down to the last three games. Suddenly two new managers B and C join the game world, taking over two of the teams that I am about to face. 

    Managers B and C proceed to hoover up the best remaining players. So what should have been a reasonably simple run-in against some unmanaged teams will now be a massive scrap :( 

  4. I don't know if this has been mentioned before, but Gianluca Frabotta (rating 73, age 21) of Juventus is worth snapping up. 

    He started at LWB for Juve in their first league game, over Luca Pellegrini and De Sciglio (Alex Sandro injured). 

    Pellegrini is likely to go out on loan, and it is only a matter of time before De Sciglio once again injures himself. This leaves Frabotta as the deputy LWB to Sandro. He could see quite a few minutes, and a nice rise.

    Really, really sorry to post this again, but I am really torn. Rahul and Bigpest both replied and I am extremely grateful...but both came down on different sides of the deal! Would anyone else be able to add their viewpoint? (I would be very grateful).

     

    Offer received for MANE:

    VALVERDE + COMAN + 24 milion.

    (Already have a good attack with SALAH, SANCHO, STERLING, O. DEMBELE and PULISIC and could afford to lose MANE).

    I am leaning towards COMAN and VALVERDE as I prefer younger players that will develop. MANE is aging and COMAN and VALVERDE are likely to rise given their age.

    Thank you again! I will shut up after this!

    Just in case you want another 2 cents on this:

    I'd keep Mane. Salah, Sterling, Mane is an elite attack, and all three should remain 94+ for the next few years at the least.

    Mane is not old by any means: at 28, he is at the peak of his powers. Everyone is different of course, but I expect he should remain top class into his 30s. Furthermore, as long as Klopp is at Liverpool, Mane (and Salah too) is playing in the perfect system that maximises his strengths and minimises his weaknesses.

    You don't really need Coman. You already have Sancho and Pulisic, who are younger and IMO better. Sterling isn't that much older than Coman either. Dembele is younger than Coman, and probably has more upside. 

    Valverde is, acknowledged, a real talent. However, it will be years (if ever) until he hits 94+. Same as with Coman. It is highly uncertain whether either will ever hit Mane's 95.
