  1. Re: For A Few Points More : An Idea For Beating Unmanaged Teams
  2. Re: English Championship 106 - Discussion Thread Your formation was off, yes, but if it's any consolation, I had forgotten to pick my team & tactics for the game. Have to mention a pet peeve, though - the AI employed my 75-rated LB at RB, an 84-rated CB at LB and an 83-rated winger at CM. Result : the winger scored two, set up one, earned a rating on 9 and the Man of the Match award.
  3. Re: Lower League Players - Advice + Tips On Potential/Ratings/Ability Elliott, I'd be interested in knowing your thoughts on Cardiff City's Adam Matthews, who's been linked with Arsenal.
  4. Re: French Ligue 1 and 2 Thank IOA who posted it, not me.
  5. Re: French Ligue 1 and 2 One of the reasons why I love this guy.
  6. Re: Forumer's World Cup, Main Event, Group 5. Andyowls gets my vote for his overall contribution, although this does not mean I don't enjoy the others' work here, like burs' posts in the General Football section, Chip's perverted thoughts on the K/P/M thread, etc., etc.
  7. Re: Forumer's World Cup, Main Event, Group 6. Johnny C. Very easy decision, this, even if at first sight, it shouldn't have been.
  8. Re: English Championship 106 - Discussion Thread Frustrating day for me yesterday, with the PC refusing to boot up, but now it's okay ; think it's a problem with the RAM. Going on a holiday this weekend with a few other families; please, please, please let there be a couple of eligible, single-and-ready-to-mingle ladies on the trip. Welcome to the Family, Germ. Btw, has anyone seen the Daniel Craig film 'Some Voices'? I'm curious to know what accent the girl who played his GF was speaking in; it was so sexy!

  10. Re: Arsenal Gossip He's a right-back' date=' isn't he? We don't have any decent RB talent coming up from the youth side, so if this guy's any good, a deal for him would make sense. Meanwhile, you guys may have read about us being linked with CFR Cluj's beanpole-like striker Lacina Traore, whom CSKA Moscow are also after as a better-quality replacement for that joker Tomas Necid a.k.a. [i']The Tree[/i]. Anyway, here he is, talking about our interest in him and (like every other young player) saying that it would be a "dream" to play for us: http://www.sportinglife.com/football/news/story_g
  11. Re: For A Few Points More : An Idea For Beating Unmanaged Teams No, don't worry, I think it may still work, if the displays of the Grafite-El Hamdaoui combo I had for around 10 games is any indication. Fwds do work well as solo strikers, too.
  12. Re: For A Few Points More : An Idea For Beating Unmanaged Teams No CF? Would be interesting to see how well it'd work in the long-term; never have consistently used a Fwd as a targetman myself - that role's for my CF.
  13. Re: For A Few Points More : An Idea For Beating Unmanaged Teams Good to hear that. I'm an advocate of direct passing & defensive mentality; it's worked brilliantly for me over a long period of time, across different setups.

  16. Re: English Championship 106 - Discussion Thread Hmm, so I lost to Fitzy's Crewe despite leading 2-0 after 28 minutes. Not too concerned at the moment; am aiming to reconstruct the squad to suit certain tactics. Hope they pay off. Btw, welcome back, Jared.
  17. Re: Help With Deal(s) Thread... Oh, don't get me wrong, it's a league of a high standard.
  18. Re: English Championship 106 - Discussion Thread Oh. I thought they were called tights.
  19. Re: English Championship 106 - Discussion Thread Which one's Dave? The prima ballerina?
  20. Re: 4-2-3-1 vs 4-3-3 Wingers ? Moron. That's such a terrible formation. Well done!

  23. Re: English Championship 106 - Discussion Thread I'm using the same formation as Mr. cliffe's, since it's the only one that incorporates all my better-rated players.
