  1. Re: Help With Deal(s) Thread... Um, no? No, yes no. Upon further consideration: no.
  2. Re: Riferimento: Re: Help With Deal(s) Thread... I'm not trying to be critical of anything but your logic here, let me first stress that i am a firm believer in any goalkeeper brave enough to tolerate the **** every goalkeeper gets in every game ever played. That said, do you see anyone breaking down any doors for Sergio Romero, Nikolay Mihaylov, or Nir Davidovitch? All are national team keepers, and none have a snowball's chance of rising. Romero is probably the best example that national teams need to succeed in order for ratings to be affected, making Messi's 99 even more of an accomp
  3. Re: Buy, Sell or Keep Thread? Coentrao has two options from now until the end of his career: stay, drop. Muniain has a long way to go, will follow a Schurrle-esque path to mediocrity. Pepe is done. What he loses will go straight into Varane's rating. Wilshere is going to learn a lot from Arteta this season, expect 91, hope for 92. No comment on De Siglio. Ozil is not going to be benched. Say that again and i will bench you. Marquinhos is my own personal favoutrite for the DM/CB position. Keep hold. Courtois is probably the best goalkeeper in the world who did not play in the CL fi
  4. Re: Help With Deal(s) Thread... That's a lot of questions. 1: What is cash in your game world? 2: What is your weekly wage bill against your weekly intake on away matches? 3: Do you have risers to sell off to avoid going into the red? 4: How do you offer two players and cash in a deal for one player? Is it two deals? 8 mil for Howard is fair' date=' but Suarez for Jovetic will never work on its own (i am not a gold manager, so if there's something i'm missing, just tell me). 5: What do you think of Suarez as a person? Remember Slobodan Rajkovic, before you answer. EDIT: Evil, e
  5. Re: Help With Deal(s) Thread... The questions still hang. Who won? Are there any obvious missteps? I can't really figure out what to make of this series of deals. I feel like i won considerably, but can't help missing the players lost. That leads me to believe that everyone actually got what they want. Team 1 had serious doubts about Falcao's new destination, as well as Schurrle's. Team 2 was finally willing to part with Cesc, for the right price. Team 3 needed a lot of pieces in a lot of different areas, and was willing to give from a substantial offensive depth to get it.
  6. Re: Help With Deal(s) Thread... The blockbuster has concluded. Now, i'm still not sure how to ask this, since so many pieces moved between three clubs, so i'll try and just work it out as i go through it. Team 1 now has: Fabregas (starter), Neymar (bench), Walcott (bench), Strootman (cup/emerg), Cambiasso (1st D/DM alternate). Team 1 lost: Falcao (starter), Pedro (starter), Gameiro (cup/emerg), Jones (bench), Schurrle (bench). Team 2 now has: Falcao (starter), Schurrle (bench). Team 2 lost: Fabregas (starter). Team 3 now has: Pedro (1st alternate winger), Gameiro (cup/emerg), Jones (
  7. Re: Help With Deal(s) Thread... The truth behind this is acute, precise, dissectional. It is also the reason that my winning club only plays 3 CBs at the back, with a DM. I call it a transitional 4-4-2, like Turkey that last time they were contending at a major tournament. But really, i'm just playing 4 CBs because i can't for the life of me accept that Yuto #%@ki$$ Nagatomo, Benoit Tremoulinas, Fabio Da Silva, Evra, Gael Clichy, an old Argentinian, a young Welsh attacking midfielder still clinging to an old post, or one stalwart German fullback are the best options i have at left back.
  8. Re: Help With Deal(s) Thread... what's with the lols? I'm actually curious if we can see beyond positional rating potential, given CBs are obviously capped at 96 (or less, depending on league). Put it this way: i gave up Jones for Neymar, so we know where i stand this one time. But i ask because defence first has always been my philosophy. Having Messi, Muller, Jovetic, Hazard, and Ozil, a wing/fwd wasn't really necessary. But it seemed like the kind of luxury move i could make, and to a team in dire nreed of top D prospects. SM are kind of lazy...
  9. Re: Help With Deal(s) Thread... Neymar or Phil Jones? (position irrelevant, pure legend potential comparison) Wijnaldum, Coutinho, Deulofeu, Sterling, or F. Andesron? Side question: why isn't J. Boateng above 90 yet? I have a really, really tough time believing 91 hasn't happened ages ago. I suppose i have the same question with Muller's 93.
  10. Re: Help With Deal(s) Thread... Cambiasso is breaking your opinion of this, isn't he So chase Benteke or some such flavour of the month. Matri is not worth your time.
  11. Re: Help With Deal(s) Thread... Thanks for the response. But maybe i should have put it this way: Fabregas, Neymar, Strootman, and Cambiasso OR Pedro, Phil Jones, Gameiro, Falcao, and Schurrle Huge retool of the squad, i'll admit. Yes, i'm pretty sweet on Jones, but can say the same of Strootman. I honestly think this is about as SM fair as SM can get. To break it down, one club gets Falcao and Schurrle, whereas another received Pedro, Jones, and Gameiro in 2 deals. I see 3 clubs who can all score a win in the trade, which is the hallmark of good business deals.
  12. Re: Help With Deal(s) Thread... Vidal. Juventus should be getting roundhouse kicks to the ratings, so you could be right about Marchisio. Still, Vidal. I love star utility players.
  13. Re: Help With Deal(s) Thread... Falcao and Schurrle, or Fabregas? I think i'm looking at two fair deals, in terms of assumption of risk and initial/long-term return on investment. Phil Jones and Gameiro, or Neymar? Already did this deal, but still would like the expert opinion. Strootman and Cambiasso, or Pedro? Consider this a result of Neymar coming in. Jones needed a depth replacement, whereas Pedro became the redundant winger (keeping Muller, Hazard, Ozil, Dzagoev). Fabregas makes Ozil available exclusively as a winger, can also split #2 CF duties with Muller, who becomes much more
  14. Re: Help With Deal(s) Thread... Today, Kompany. 18 months from now, Subotic might very well be an equal. If your club is youth-oriented, go with the American. If you need a stud, it's Kompany. And you're a rare brand of human for it. Thank you for your kind words. I apologize for starting at the other gentleman. To him: the illiterate crack was about a misused apostrophe. It was an unnecessary insult, and i apologize. I felt you were being aggressive, so i retorted. To the seller: sure, 12 mil is a fair price. I'd rather get Wanyama or something, but we all have different values
  15. Re: Help With Deal(s) Thread... This is the important question.
  16. Re: Help With Deal(s) Thread... And be as illiterate as you like.
  17. Re: Help With Deal(s) Thread... And that gives you license to talk about things how, exactly?
  18. Re: Help With Deal(s) Thread... Not a whole lot. I love Nastasic, and desperately need a good defender in my rotation. Just lost Phil Jones in a huge deal for Neymar, so i need to balance the squad. Pedro is the odd man out. I need a young defender and, ideally, a young defensive mid. The Nastasic deal looks good, and the part that scares me is i might take just him and cash. Am i selling Pedro short?
  19. Re: Help With Deal(s) Thread... Shawcross is 200% that pank. Keep him. He's on the long road to being an important international. MY question: what is Pedro Rodriguez worth? Is he worth Strootman and 47 million? Is he worth Pogba, Nastasic, and cash? He needs to go, but the problem is that i feel like there's no way i can make a fair deal.
