  1. Re: Tactics Page I think that this 'improvement' should and hopefully will be quietly dumped ASAP. Maybe cosmetically more pleasing on the eye, just not very helpful if you have more than 11 players in your team. Could some of these new alleged 'improvement' be made switchable like the other tactics pages option is?. Just far too difficult to see if you have a player out of position or a better options on the bench. Seems purely change for change's sake as certainly doesn't add anything to the playability. Unless of course it's real purpose is as a back door way of reducing squad sizes?
  2. Re: "What nationality are you?" thread Probably not really as I am white. Suspect I might some very odd looks if I put down my ethnicity as Chinese.
  3. Re: "What nationality are you?" thread Not sure if this is on your list or indeed is a nationality, but I guess I must now be a British Hong Konger. Although my family originally only moved to Britain to escape during the French Revolution in 1789. Some very nasty people wanted to chop off their heads.
  4. Re: Stadium Upgrade Agree that it is a nice addition if it works, but is this in reality going to be of any help to the smaller teams? I remember that Bobo mentioned this last year, but it is still a problem so thought it worth mentioning again. My Oldham team has gone from the 4th to 1st division and am now 11 points clear of the drop zone with 9 games to go. So hardly a disastrous 1st season in the top flight, yet can't even sell out my current stadium capacity. Even against the glamour teams like Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool and Man U I never get close to the max capacity. Having b
  5. Re: Man City sack Eriksson! Can't say it comes as a big surprise. Guess that is what happens when you have an owner who knows nothing about football. Wouldn't be so bad if it was even his own money being squandered. Notice that none of the Thai players have made appearances, which probably didn't go down well either. Seems Eriksson was a victim of his own success really with the great start. Will be interesting to see who the manager is when they play in Hong Kong next month. I understand another ex England manager is currently on the market. If anyone has Maclarens number I will happi
  6. Re: ***Redknapp held in football inquiry*** Just noticed the following on the BBC website. Blues bosses arrested by police Karren Brady and David Sullivan Brady and Sullivan say they are "committed to helping police" Birmingham City co-owner David Sullivan and managing director Karren Brady have been arrested and questioned by police. City of London Police investigating alleged corruption in English football said they arrested a man, 59, and a woman 39, on Wednesday. The pair were questioned in connection with allegations of false accounting and conspiracy to defraud. A club statemen
  7. Kung Hei Fat Choi (Happy New Year) Hope you all have a happy, prosperous and I guess in our cases winning year of the rat. Sorry might be a bit late, but just encase anyone will be in this part of the world either on holiday or work later this week. If you are then this maybe of interest to you. This years Lunar New Year Cup kicks off this Thursday. Although seems a break from tradition this year as it is normally International teams who take part. Match Day 1 7th February 2008 Match 1, Kick off time: 15:00 HK League XI vs Penarol Match 2, Kick off time: 17:30 Hajduk Split vs Ulsan Hy
  8. Re: Which Gold Setup is the Best Like George I have also gone for GC1. The first and still the best. They say that there no easy games in international football, but you should include GC1 in that too. I guess similar to real life, you have got some very stiff competition for players and some excellent managers and squads. (Had a quick count and there are 71 managers with over 100 rep points, with about another 10 over 90!!!) So to even compete against the best in SM you have to really dig a little for players who are going to be the next big thing. Then just keep your fingers crossed u
  9. Re: Guess the Countries Flag Thread! Can't think of any major country other than Jamaica with a saltire. Could be Jersey of course? Not sure Jersey is a country however. Hope I haven't offended any of our Northern friends
  10. Re: Guess the Countries Flag Thread! Figured it might have been too easy.
  11. Re: Guess the Countries Flag Thread! Sorry I haven't been online. OK, mine is as follows The flag is vertically divided into two halves, the half closer to the flagpole is yellow, the other is white. The coat of arms can be found in the white half. The coat of arms consists of: * a tiara * two keys * a red cord connecting the keys. Good luck for those interested in playing.
  12. Don't know if any of you have seen this. Was taken during a NATO exercise in Florennes air base, Belgium. http://it.youtube.com/watch?v=iqCn5nuasHM
  13. Re: Guess the Countries Flag Thread! Could it be the Croatian Naval Ensign?
  14. Just found this interesting item from the BBC website. Sounds like as usual due to greed the Premiership has shot itself in the foot on this one. Bye Bye to the extremely profitable winter tours I guess. You would think they would have the intelligence to continue the free coverage to build the fan base like other sports and leagues have done. For 1.2 billion people, potential shirt sales alone must be more than the 25 million they got for the deal. Pretty small change for the potential greater loss. Seem to remember they messed it up in Africa also earlier this year by giving the cont
