    Guaratingueta now have 3 x Division 2 titles.
  2. I am sort of ok with the changes, never felt comfortable with where some players could play in certain formations, but I have 2 issues. 1. How it was done. We should have ensured players positions were up to date before implementing. 2. Although I don't spend much time on the game anymore, I always altered my formations to suit the opposition. Or I made changes to the formation if I was loosing at 60mins/75mins. These changes make it virtually impossible because concerns dont let you keep decent players to suit different formations, this is another dumbing down of the game and unreali

    Guaratinguetá outclassed Barcelona B and beat them 1 - 0 in their Division 2 fixture. Villalba had an impressive game and was voted Man of the Match. Jiménez was on the scoresheet for his side. Up to 4th so still looking for promotion. Really tight in the 2nd division with nobody really performing well. Top team has only won 4 out of 9

    Guaratinguetá have finished Ninth in Division 1. Apologies for my lack of posts recently, have really not spent as much time on the game as I should, which has lead to relegation. I will give it my best to get us promoted next year. I see the curse has struck again, this has got to be more than a coincidence. Guaratingueta champions in seasons 8 + 9, relegated the following year. Rayo Vallecano champions in seasons 10 +11, relegated the following year. Rochdale champions in seasons 12 + 13, relegated the following year. Look out Cam Lucas, you may enjoy next year but not the following

    Guaratinguetá were unlucky not come away with the win after drawing 1 - 1 against Siena in their Division 1 fixture. Wow, even the game feed thinks we were unlucky. 63% of possession and opposition fielded 2 ineligible players. Hope the 2 lost points isn't crucial at the end of the season.

    Welcome and good luck.
  8. And you would of funded the growth of your squad and higher wages how?
  9. So how would a squad cap of 50 have helped your Division 4 team? You appear to be talking about getting the next big thing from a top club, there is always a bidding war for these. Even with a squad cap, your lowly team and budget probably wouldn't win it. Even if you did, where's the next one coming from, how are you going to get the revenue to pay his wages when he rises to 90+, you would still have to sell him. I agree that SM could introduce different revenue streams for smaller teams should there be a squad cap, but as it stands, a 50 player squad cap would empty out GW's.
  10. Taken the following from the help section, hope it helps. The player could have developed the concern for a number of reasons, including being loaned out, their current wage, lack of opportunity at the club and a lack of games. For example. First team players expect to play 65-75% of games. High rated players dont like being loaned out. If a player has only played in 2 of 15 games for example, which is less than the 65-75%, then they would develop a Level 1 Concern. Even if you played them for the next 15 games, they would still develop a Level 2 Concern as they would have only played in
  11. So you believe the game should only be played one way? There are indeed many managers like you, however there are also many managers like me (although this is now getting less with the slow down of player ratings in recent years). We also want to win stuff, but want the challenge of building up a team and not just taking over a ready made team with a big stadium to give us revenue. Like I have said before, if you remove the possibility of small clubs improving themselves using transfer revenue from small rated risers, then you will only have managers taking over the bigger clubs in Leagues. W
  12. I still don't understand how a manager having 50, or even 100, low rated risers between 70 and 80 in his squad clogs up a game world, there are thousands to go round if you scout properly. As for rotating 18 similar rated players, as I understand it, the first 11 expects 75% of game time, the next 11 50%, those maths don't work. Again you quote real life about players wanting to move if not getting game time. If you want to mirror real life, they would also want to move if they were constantly getting substituted and rotated as you have to do on SM. This is a game, not real life. If we are
  13. It doesn't apply to me either. I don't start with a big club, there is no challenge or fun in that. I liked to build up small teams (eg, won 1st division in GC 42 with a Macclesfield, this took 5 years). I am also in a GW where you have to sell anyone who reaches 87 or more. I have never had a 250 man squad, my maximum is about 130, the fun in this is that it funds the improvement. My point was aimed at anybody wanting a VERY small squad cap, the challenge to improve a small team would be impossible and GW's empty apart from top teams anyway. ​What about my other point on realism?
  14. Totally agree with this, the Managers shouting for a very small squad limit are those that expect to log on and buy a star player, where's the fun in that? The Managers who have spent years building a squad will have to to sell to those who don't scout. For those shouting that it's not realistic, in real life, Chelsea and Juventus have 17 players rated over 90, Man City, Man Utd, Barcelona and Real Madrid have 16. This is not possible on SM because of concerns. This is not to mention all the 89 players who would also develop concerns. Do you want to change the game to be more realistic and al

    Sad day, sorry to see you go mate but I can understand your decision. This has been a fantastic GW to be in and you have been great as an owner, will miss the banter. Good luck Tranmere, let's keep this GW alive, but I do hope the curse transfers with the account
  16. With the way P/E values are at the moment, I don't think you will ever see an increase in trading between managers. Any excess players will be sold for cash. Then, after the ban is up, it will be a scramble with the big clubs winning again.

    Guaratinguetá beat NK Varaždin 3 - 2 in their Division 1 fixture I suppose we can be happy with 3rd place considering we were 2nd bottom at half way stage. 7 wins from the last 9 games, lets hope we start season 14 in the same form.
