    He retired a few weeks ago.
    Yannick have apparently signed a deal with Nice, but due to some issues, the papers weren't sent in before the deadline. If the deal would go through despite that, Nice must have been pretty insane to splash those amount cash that it has been rumored about. I'm talking about a sum between the €4-8.5M region. Ridiculus sum for a player of Yannick's calibre. He has his good days - obviously - but those days are limited. If he'd contribute on a positive note on a regular basis, then he'd definately be worth those money. Still feel Nice should have looked within the French borders if they wanted a Yannick-esque player - why didn't they seal a deal for Alessandrini?! €3m is what Clermont are asking for him, that's no biggie.

    Just wanted to drop by and say that Zarate will shine this season. He'll be given a much more offensive role in Gasperini's Inter than the role he had under Reja (and Ballardini) while he was serving at Lazio. He'll reach the form he enjoyed during his first season in Italy with Gasperini's offensive 3-4-1-2/3-4-3 style of play in comparison to Reja's/Ballardini's 4-5-1/4-2-3-1/3-4-1-2 thinking - you heard it here first.

    There's been some exciting days in North eastern England.
    David Luiz is heading his way to East London, where he'll join the Hammers in exchange for Yanga-Mbiwa and Ander Herrera. As a result of this transfer, Maggio will be making this journey as well. In return Sunderland get Belhanda + a couple of handy millions.
    Also, Coentrão will be making his way to Sunderland. In return, Leicester will be getting Tremoulinas and Bruno. Leicester will also be getting the right to loan José Enrique and Maxime Gonalons throughout the whole season.The transfer will be on hold until it'll go through in about two weeks - the date Bruno's TB will be locked up.
    And finally, Koscielny will be heading his way to Arsenal for a straight cash deal. £15m is what Arsenal will have to cough up for getting the right to his signature. Those £15m will come in handy eventually - as Sunderland are on soon to close in on a Amalfitano and Coutadeur deal.
    Sunderland have also got accepted bids on Bernat + Tassi. Both are quite the talents and they'll improve my current crop of youngsters in the youth squad.

    Roma spent a peanut fee on him (around €12 million), which is, as I said, just a peanut fee for them. A 19 year old kid that cost them next to nothing is not supposed to be a starter.
    Try to get Chris Hargreaves instead - now there's a big talent - albeit his age.

    Divison One Top 10 Predictions
    Thursday, 25th August 2011




    Last season was a cracker which saw Arsenal rise above the rest and take the division one trophy for the first time in EC5579 history, but with the new season on the horizon plenty of teams have been improving their sides for the new campaign adding world class stars to their line ups in order to get a good start and prove to the rest that they have what it takes to lift the prestigious trophy.

    1. Manchester City




    It seems like they’ve won just about every competition under Adam Devitt but they are still eager to win the league after finishing runner up twice. The side looks in good shape with a perfect mix of experience and youth, world class stars such as Robinho, Pedro and Reina all play their sport in the blue side of Manchester and it seems they will be pushing harder than ever for the all important victories.


    One to watch: Pedro


    After arriving from Leicester City close towards the end of the season for a hefty sum, Pedro only managed to play eight games for City but now he’s ready to start from scratch and show the fans what he’s made of, he will have tough competition for a starting place with the likes of Robinho and Lisandro playing in roughly the same position. He should cause real troubles for defenders as I see him hitting the net many times in season six.

    2. Sunderland




    Sunderland have been way off the pace in the last few seasons with low position finishes but pre season seems to have gone down a success at the Stadium of Light with wins over fellow title competitors, they may just be friendly’s but they must mean something. The vast amount of players the manager has to choose from is just staggering and with such a big side it can only mean success in all competitions is on the cards.


    One to watch: Kompany


    Sunderland have one of the best combinations of centre backs in the league with Vincent Kompany and Matt Hummels linking up. Kompany was a rock last season putting in a fine string of performances and we should only expect to see that bettered this season as the Belgium man continues progressing in ability.

    3. Liverpool




    Liverpool have taken a different approach to many top sides recently as they have looked to sign talented players rather than world beaters with Hazard, Gotze and M’Vila all regularly featuring in the line up ahead of players who are perhaps a lot more developed than them. This seemed to pay off last season with a finish in fourth place but they are still hunting for the success and form they achieved in season one.


    One to watch: Sergio Aguero


    Since the departure of Villa two seasons ago Liverpool have struggled for goals upfront normally relying on the likes of Ozil and Silva for goals but with the big money arrival of Aguero in pre season this should no longer be a problem. The question is who will he link up with, Higuain or Dzeko?

    4. Arsenal




    They may have been too good for the competition last season but it seems to have gone cold on the transfer front for the Gunners this season and with other teams bringing in new signings they have decided to just bolster the squad with a few likely substitute players I think they will struggle to keep up with the competition and end up filling the last place in the top four.


    One to watch: Fernando Torres


    He was absolutely amazing last season with twenty nine goals in thirty six games, and all we want to know is he can achieve the same this time round, it’s anyone’s guess. But we will find out very soon.

    5. West Ham




    They have put together a fine side and seem to constantly cause upset among the big boys. They may not have signed any players in pre season but we’re still yet to see a chunk of latest acquisitions Mario Balotelli and Sami Khedira who will add a lot of class to the side. There’s plenty of youth players packed with talent pushing for first team places and also the more experienced such as De Rossi steering the side in the right direction.


    One to watch: Khedira


    The German international didn’t get much of a chance to prove his worth last season with a select few appearances since arriving but partnering along side De Rossi he should be able to flourish and the pair could turn into the hub of the London side.

    6. Chelsea




    Chelsea have never had a comfortable manager and there again seems to be concern over the current gaffer with no new players arriving. They came close to Arsenal last season eventually ending in second place but it seems hard to see how they will achieve this again with very little attention present.


    One to watch: Ronaldo


    The Portuguese man has yet to become a hit at Stamford Bridge since signing for the blues back in season one, but it will eventually happen especially when a player has previously proved his calibre. When he does hit form and get the managers approval goals should flurry which should help the side to finally mould.

    7. Bolton Wanderers




    Bolton never seem to struggle when it comes to causing big sides upset, Ashh has been with them since the start of the setup and has really become at one with the players as well as putting together a solid team. They’ve added much needed bulk to the side with the arrival of Naldo, Denisov and Gamberini for what seem to be very low prices.


    One to watch: Neuer


    Constantly a fans favourite at the Reebok Stadium the German international has formed into one of the best goalkeepers in the world. He is the sides gem and will remain to hold the players together as a team in victory and in defeat.

    8. Preston North End




    They’ve just undergone a change in management after there long serving manager stood down at the end of last season, immediate change has taken place with plenty of new faces arriving and it will be interesting too see how the side comes together. The main thing is that they have managed to keep hold of their main assets such as Lukaku, N’Zogbia and Barrios who should be able to collectively hold the side together.


    One to watch: Lukaku


    Everyone was in shock when the hit Belgium youngster signed for Preston on the cheap from Bristol City. It’s his debut season and I have a good feeling that he will impress fans and other teams all at once.

    9. Blackburn Rovers




    The season three champions haven’t managed to retain their former success but they still have a very strong squad especially with the strike partnership of Van Persie and Rossi. They also have rather experience players who know what it takes to win and I’m sure they will have some silverware on the way whether it’s the league or the cup.


    One to watch: Rossi


    He hasn’t always been favoured to the likes of Berbatov and Van Persie but I think he could get his chance this season and prove to the gaffer that he has what it takes in front of goal.

    10. Portsmouth




    The last team to fill the top ten, there are still so many top teams, which could be included, but Pompey rise above the rest. They express talent in all departments with plenty of new arrivals joining the side over the summer and have a very strong manager at the helm surely that ensures that they will finish in the top ten.


    One to watch: Mascherano


    The Argentinian will be the player everybody will look to out on the field, he arrived last season but only managed to feature in half of the season but he did impress in that time even managing to net three goals.

    THE ASHH'S TASHES SPONSORED PREMIER LEAGUE


    LAWRO'S OFFICIAL LEAGUE TABLE PREDICTIONS



    _ynF5yvMr58





    There's no question about it. This is a part of the season where you can just about 20 clubs enjoy the most really! The start of a brand new season. Why? Theres renewed hope - you all start on a level playing field at the end of the day. If you know the league well enough, you'll know that anything is possible! Who'd of predicted Blackburn would win the Season 3 title end of the day? Who'd of put a serious bet on Man Utd to be relegated to the Championship back in Season 3, after winning the title in Season 2? For all we know, Arsenal could be this season's titanic? Doubtful, but hey, who knows?


    This season welcomes 3, aswell as waves farewell to 3 - for now...

    Last season, Wigan Athletic said goodbye to this promised lands, as did Birmingham and Dave Izod. But they were also joined on the taxi by giants Everton, who had a star studded side, and a decent manager! How does that add up? Fercasti's the only one who'll explain that to you, but that folks in what 5579 is all about - unpredictability!

    Joining us for the fun this season we have Championship winners Cardiff City, and Dudeskin - in their eyes, "the pride of Wales". Also, we say hello to Derby County, and Stefan Schwenk, and unknown, but successful to date 5579 character. The third team joining us is arguablly the most successful football club in EC5579 history to date. Shrewsbury Town!

    They are managed by JinxMillion, and yes, in Season 1 they were just a plain average looking League 2 team! They have jumped the ladder in flying colours!!! But can they survive in the deepest end of the swimming pool?

    Also whilst talking new boys - TheDuffMan has taken over the reigns at Preston North End this close season from successful manager Rob Walshe. Rob was responsible for leading the brave Lillywhites to the top league against the odds, and into Europe. He turned them into one of 5579's best! Some footsteps then for DuffMan to fill!


    Heres my league table verdict for Season 5 - feel free to agree, disagree, moan, groan, joy, swear, and insult to my thoughts....

    ROYALS TO FOIL


    Firstly, would like to say it has been once again pretty tough to say where all the teams are going to finish, its just going to be another unpredictable rollercoaster of a season! But I think - narrowly staying up last season, Reading's resistence will fall this time around. But they can prove me wrong, which might benefit them being in that position.





    DERBY TO STRUGGLE, SHREWSBURY & CARDIFF TO PREVAIL


    Out of the 3 promoted sides, putting everything into consideration, I think Derby are the weakest link of the 3. You would say that on paper Shrewsbury are the weakest, no question, but with a holy manager they have like Jinx - they'll have a **** good season. Same with Cardiff. Theyre on a roll after winning the Championship, and Dudeskin's a good tactician. Cardiff deep down will believe they can qualify for Europe this season, and yeah I think they will give it a **** good shot!




    HAMMER BLOW FOR FULHAM

    He'll disagree with me, but Mr Hammer is not a Premier League Manager. Its like putting Avram Grant and West Ham of real life together again. I fear for the Cottagers, but Hammer - prove me wrong!!!





    NERVY BUT SAFE FOR BLACKPOOL

    Hmm I just get the sneaky feeling Blackpool will struggle to beat what theyve done the last few season this time around. Frozen's done great stuff there to keep them in this league, but its getting tougher season after season, and they are minnows remember. We do forget that! Still they'll find 44 odd points from somewhere.



    BIG PROGRESSION FOR THE EAGLES

    Jooles is another strong contender for the Best Manager Of All Time in 5579. I like to label this team as the Stoke of Real Life. Progressing bit by bit the last few seasons, although this team also have a Cup win under their belts unlike Stoke. I think they'll make Europa League this season, which will delight everyone at this club!





    ARSENAL NOT TO BE AS GOOD, BUT STILL TOP 4 WORTHY

    Jenks, and Arsenal will be a massive force again this season, but I think they'll fail in their bid to become the first side ever to win back to back Premiership title. They have got an awsome strike force going in Rooney, and Torres. A dream strike force. But I think they'll get beat in the long run for the title.






    GREAT SEASON FOR THE TROTTERS

    Ive put Bolton to finish 3rd, and I belive that'll equal their best ever finish to a Premierleague season. Ashh will be looking to rally the troops again for another season, and they'll give it an almighty blast once again. They had some bad results last season, but if Ashh keeps his mind focused on the job once again this season, they'll be very decent!





    CHELSEA'S SEASON - MAN CITY PIPED YET AGAIN

    In terms of the Premier League, I'd say Manchester City are best described as the "Nearly Men" right now, and Season 5 will be no different. Chelsea's 2nd half to last season was phenominal! If they can keep that form going into this season, then I dont think anyone can stop them, and credit to the rather unknown Seren Lim for that! She's clearly got a good idea of this game, and how to work the Blues to glory. I predict big, big things for the London Blues this season!!!

    I've had a strong pre-season with three wins against the likes of Man City, Everton and Chelsea - of course I'll win the league!
    No, but seriously, I'll be aiming for a top 4 finish and I'm glad that Tom made that prediction as I'll have a lot less pressure on my hands. That cannot be said about previous seasons + the competition of the league has been scrolled up a lot higher as a result of the fact that managers have been able to build the team of their choice of players. Having that said, I won't want to pay £1.200.000m every turn to my players, so if anybody is interested in loaning some of my players, just chuck in a bid on the players rated 87 or less.
    Maggio, Koscielny, Manolas and Bruno are all available for transferable! I'd accept cash on the two latters only (with the starting bid on Bruno being £15.000.000m).

    Sabo could be a good buy. Deschamps prefers to rotate his squad and with Sabo being the back-up to Morel, he should end up clocking up a respectable amount of minutes. These previous seasons, Heinze and Taiwo exchanged a lot of minutes on the pitch, so I don't see why Deschamps would suddenly make a change in the pattern. Sabo is a good player as well, so he's definately worth the small sum I assume he'd go by.

Of course a lot has been changing ever since then, but still, that only proofs me right.

    Think somebody asked about Downing's cross completion from last season, it was 24%. Not to sure how that compares to any of the other players in the Prem if somebody wants to find out...
    I expect Doni will simply provide back-up, which can only be good for the development of Péter Gulácsi and could bring in some money if we decide to cash in on Brad Jones. Gulácsi is expected to join Hull on loan by the sounds of it, meaning he's likely to play 35+ games rather than a couple of reserve games and the odd cup match.
    I believe one thing Henderson does need to work on is his tackling, heard Sunderland fans saying he shy's out of making tackles which doesn't sound great.
    Poulsen has been linked with a £2.5 million return to Copenhagen. Jose Enrique has apparently said he wants to play in the Champions League, now im not sure if that means this season, or next, or the season after. Meanwhile Jovanovic is likely to complete a move to Anderlecht, apparently. Lets look at his best moments....

    Pazz - thats exactly what i am saying - there is no basis at all for anyone to not trust you.
    I think this is a genuine case of two very good forummers who simply do deals in a different way. In truth its all got out of hand - no one has tried to cheat anyone - and calling anyone unprofessional because they deal in a different way to you is wrong.
    I think you should both accept that you cant do a deal THIS time round, but there is no basis at all from either of you to not do deals in the future, just remember when you do that-
    1. When SirMarkHughes agrees the deal, thats it, its done and you should complete as agreed with no further bargaining - he's a man of his word.
    2. If agreeing a deal with Pazzano, there is always still time and flexibility to discuss adding players, cash or tweak the deal if you so wish - after all discussion costs nothing.

    As Rob said - it's a brilliant signing for Gozzy. However, (and please - don't get offended), but having seen that Gozzy was one of my latest ''wall-viewers'' and therefore perhaps saw my VM-conversation with Dan (Peterbourough) about Carmona, it does make me wonder why he came up with a bid on him just hours after I and Dan spoke about Carmona and his potential. I'm not trying to wind up you (Gozzy) and I'm not saying you (perhaps) weren't aware of Carmona's potential, but IMHO, it does seem a bit odd, if I may add.
    Sorry if I'm way out in the deep water with my allegation and if you got offended, but I'm just speaculating as you bidded on him just hours after I firstly ever mentioned his potential to someone.
    However, nice signing - and to the others - no, I'm not jealous. With Essien, Lucho, Khedira, Sven Bender, Moussa Sissoko, Marchisio, Gourcuff and several other players out on loan, why would I?!

    Ioannis Fetfatzidis

    Age: 19
    Nationality: Greek
    Position: Midfielder
    Club: Olympiacos





    Ionnais comes from a footballing familiy. His father was a lower league player and most notably played for Glyfada and Sourmena. Just in the latter team, his son, Ioannis, started his career. In his early teens, he moved to the perhaps biggest outfit in Greece, Olympiacos. Ioannis turned down offers from the other Athen based teams, AEK Athens and Panathinaikos, as Olympiacos offered him the same help Barca 4 years earlier offered Messi - Growth hormone treatment.
    It took 5 years before Fetfatzidis sat his foot in the Olympiacos a-team. Fetfatzidis' playingstyle reminded the then coach, Zico, a Samba player playingstyle. In October 2009, after injuries on several players, Zico didn't hesitate in giving Ioannis a chance to prove himself. Ioannis took the chance he was given and was awarded with some minutes in Champions League days later in the clash against Standard Liege. Soon Zico got fired and many thought this would be the end of Fetfazidis' time in the a-squad (for now) and that he would go back the academy squad. However, for the rest of the season Fetfatzidis was still constantly named in the a-squad of Olympiacos for every matchday, but he still wasn't a regular player in the starting XI. This despite Olympiacos beeing managed by 3 different coaches within 6 months!






    In the summer of '10, Fetfatzidis was hailed by the new coach of Olympiacos, Ewad Lienen, and Lienen said ''he had big plans for Ioannis'' and aswell ''Ioannis will be a future superstar''. However, after just a couple of weeks in charge, Lienen was fired and in came the former Villarreal coach, Ernesto Valverde.
    Under Valverde, Fetfarzidis has been getting opportunities after opportunities and he has been the biggest revelation in the Superliga so far. He has been so impressive that he has already been called up to play for Greece in the Euro 2012 qualifiers. He was called up to play be in the Greece team that would face Israel earlier this month. After beginning on the bench, Ioannis was subbed in early into game as Ninis got himself injured. Ioannis torned apart the Israelian defence and despite it beeing his first cap, he was playing like it would have been his 100. If it weren't for an inconsisten Salpagidis, Ioannis might have gotten away from the game with 5 assists in his first game for Greece. Fetfatzidis was voted man of the match aswell in his debut.
    In September, Olympiacos put an €12.5 million release clause on his contract and reinforced his contract until 2015.
    Ioannis doesn't only have the growth problem in common with Messi, but their playing-style aswell. Speed, technique, ball-control and creativity are just some of the tools Fetfatzidis possesses. Ioannis has quickly taken both the Super League fans and the Olympiacos fans to their hearts.

    P.S He is known as Giannis Fetfatzidis on SM. He is rated 75 as well.

    Pierre-Michel Lasogga

    Name: Pierre-Michel Lasogga
    Nationality: German
    Age: 19
    Club: Hertha Berlin
    Position: Forward
    Pierre-Michel Lasogga was originally playing for the youth teams of Wolfsburg, but as he was reaching an age where playing-time on A-level is needed, Lasogga signed a deal with Hertha Berlin in the summer of '10 coming as a free-agent from Bayer Leverkusen (II). Leverkusen has the right, though, to take him back for free within the two years to come.
    As Babbel, who got appointed in June as the new coach for Hertha Berlin, needed to build a pretty much new team after some key-players left the sinking boat with not spending to much money at the same time, many youngsters were given a shot during the pre-season, and of course, Lasogga was one of them.
    Lasogga quickly impressed on me, and like Djuricin, he is capable of playing on both the wings and as the lonely striker. Young players usually tends to have pace, Lasogga is certainly one of them. You can add some good shooting, and in my opinion (from the games I've been watching him play), he also a good vision for the game. He would do great as an high-working winger (a la Kuyt) or as a ''tip'' in a three-men-attack (a la Diego Milito, for instance).
    Anyway, he has been so far impressive at Hertha and despite beeing new to the city, and to the team (of course), Lasogga has been establishing himself pretty quickly to the team. Pretty impressive if you ask me. I mean, he has no routine of football from the big stages, he hasn't been playing with any of those players he is currently playing in the same team as and yet he has still be adapting aswell as he has done.
    He has so far not played a minute in the league, as he was out injured. However, during this ''international fixture break'' that has occured this past week, Hertha took advantage of it by playing a friendly game against Auerbach. Hertha won 4-1. And who scored 2 of them? Lasogga! With Friend, Djuricin, Raffael and (Domovchiyski to a certain extend) competing for three four offensive roles in the starting line-ups (Hertha under Babbel plays a 4-2-3-1), I can certainly see Lasogga getting many valuable minutes this season, as he can easily play as a winger and a striker and he surely must have impressed on coach Babbel after his terrific play under the summer. He has been used muchly under Babbel whenever he has been fit, and he has surely showed Babbel that he is right in choosing him to play.
    As I've been saying above, he is look pretty solid upfront, and alongside Djuricin, Lasogga scored most goals (7 goals) in Hertha Berlin this past pre-season - This kid is certainly a player to keep an eye out

    Lensois got a reaction from Droughton in Pierre-Michel Lasogga   
    Pierre-Michel Lasogga

    Name: Pierre-Michel Lasogga
    Nationality: German
    Age: 19
    Club: Hertha Berlin
    Position: Forward
    Pierre-Michel Lasogga was originally playing for the youth teams of Wolfsburg, but as he was reaching an age where playing-time on A-level is needed, Lasogga signed a deal with Hertha Berlin in the summer of '10 coming as a free-agent from Bayer Leverkusen (II). Leverkusen has the right, though, to take him back for free within the two years to come.
    As Babbel, who got appointed in June as the new coach for Hertha Berlin, needed to build a pretty much new team after some key-players left the sinking boat with not spending to much money at the same time, many youngsters were given a shot during the pre-season, and of course, Lasogga was one of them.
    Lasogga quickly impressed on me, and like Djuricin, he is capable of playing on both the wings and as the lonely striker. Young players usually tends to have pace, Lasogga is certainly one of them. You can add some good shooting, and in my opinion (from the games I've been watching him play), he also a good vision for the game. He would do great as an high-working winger (a la Kuyt) or as a ''tip'' in a three-men-attack (a la Diego Milito, for instance).
    Anyway, he has been so far impressive at Hertha and despite beeing new to the city, and to the team (of course), Lasogga has been establishing himself pretty quickly to the team. Pretty impressive if you ask me. I mean, he has no routine of football from the big stages, he hasn't been playing with any of those players he is currently playing in the same team as and yet he has still be adapting aswell as he has done.
    He has so far not played a minute in the league, as he was out injured. However, during this ''international fixture break'' that has occured this past week, Hertha took advantage of it by playing a friendly game against Auerbach. Hertha won 4-1. And who scored 2 of them? Lasogga! With Friend, Djuricin, Raffael and (Domovchiyski to a certain extend) competing for three four offensive roles in the starting line-ups (Hertha under Babbel plays a 4-2-3-1), I can certainly see Lasogga getting many valuable minutes this season, as he can easily play as a winger and a striker and he surely must have impressed on coach Babbel after his terrific play under the summer. He has been used muchly under Babbel whenever he has been fit, and he has surely showed Babbel that he is right in choosing him to play.
