    Lloris + Bale = you win.
    Lennon + Bale = you lose.
    Enjoy thinking for yourself, but in the future try doing it a little better than you have here. Bonehead deals hurt our faces. This would give you two massive pieces for future deals, only one of which you need (Hart, Lloris). It would be your choice which to move, but i could see a clean United taking either, offering something like Carrick and Herrnandez for one. Both are pieces your side could use. Then again, Spurs could use them much more.

    Re: Squad Sizes
    Lol, "the way i play the game".
    So i was driving down the road the other day. There was this guy up ahead of me. He was firing a gun out the passenger side window. It looked like he was aiming at fenceposts. He was swerving all over the place, making it impossible for anyone heading either direction to operate the motorway. Being a police officer, i pulled him over and asked what all the fuss was about. He calmly stated that i need not worry, because this is the way he drives.
    Naturally, i accepted this logical assessment of the situation and drove off, once again satisfied with the world.
    100 players, senior and youth. That's more than enough. I hold myself to this rule, and only have over 55 with one club. Personal accountability is all we have to hope for, since the human law is that stupid people are louder and more dangerous than sensible, intelligent people.

    It has to be Falcao, much as it pains me to keep Jovetic from you. It's great that his rating is starting to reflect exactly how incredible an attacker he is. As said, 92/93 over the next 12 months is not impossible. I won't comment on Moutinho, because your decision should be entirely what you think about Falcao. The age discrepancy between he and Jovetic should factor in, but the fact is that SM have elected to make today the first day of the prime of Falcao's already incredible career. Barring a Torres-style nightmare, this should continue getting better for at least three more years (real time). Jovetic might be hindered in that same period, since he is the crown jewel of Fiorentina's adorable little project.
    In a rare move, i pick the slightly older player, because he's just that good.

    Fuchs. His current rating is fair, but anyone who's been watching him as long as i have knows that he has much more left to give. He could still turn up as one of the truly great left defenders of his generation.
    Cissoko has too many problems.
    Mathieu is no.

    Re: Liga BBVA Ratings 2012/2013
    I... I just can't let this go. People can say whatever they want' date=' but any dispute against Messi being the greatest player of all time is objectively garbage. In another generation, Ronaldo would be a force. But sometimes, the truly exceptional must be recognized, whatever our personal preferences and ties may be. In this case, that is recognizing that this generation of Barcelona is the hands-down greatest side in history, with the greatest player in history as the centerpiece.
    The Messi v Ronaldo debate is absurd. I can't think of one accomplishment, individual or group, that sets Ronaldo aside. On the other hand, Messi continues to set new industry standards (90 goals...), is surrounded by vastly superior players.
    Statistically, objectively, there is no argument. In less time, Messi has done more of everything. This Messi/Ronaldo thing is a sort of extrapolation on the Tevez/Aguero debate in Argentina: everyone knows the real score, even if we all would rather have one or the other in our Dream XI.

    Seconded. Falcao isn't done where he is now, and where he is now is only outclassed by three other forwards in the world: RvP (total goals over the past 1.5 seasons), Ibra (raw ability, prestige), and Messi (goals, goals, goals). And once he's finished with this season, there's not much between him and the #2 spot, unless Ibra and RvP defy peak age, or Ronaldo gets his groove back.

    Bojan seems to be stuck in this awful Weekend at Bernie's situation. I remember him being alive, playing that beautiful last-touch football at Barcelona; only now, he's lying on the beach, because we dropped him off the porch by mistake. I swear, he used to be alive.
    Hoilett was a flash in the pan, and QPR thought there was a lot more gas behind it than the truth had in store. His peak, as with all other Canadians, is 88.
    Ljajic, despite his alcoholism, has twice the potential of either, for two very different reasons: Hoilett was a pretender, whereas Bojan is some kind of zombie version of himself. Fiorentina is likely as big a club as Ljajic can get to, considering his George Best impressions scared off most of the giants a few years ago.
    Ljajic has a max of 90 whilst drunk, 92 if sober. Bojan is a long shot to reach his potential, which is significantly above 92.
    Take the safe bet.

    He's a bloated pig of a manager, just like so many others. Share the good players; keep the ones you hold and develop for years. This punk wants help farming a rainforest; i will not sit idly by and tell him he is doing something positive.
    If i was him, i would pick 23 of my favourites, and try to build a team around them.
    Only hack managers need to stockpile like that douche has.

    Re: Ozil for Pastore + Sahin Nuri
    I'm not saying that, but in order to rise on he will need to move out of Dortmund this summer because next season it won't be such a party like this year.
    And Pastore will stay at Palermo next season imo. Yes Arsene_Wenger_Arsenal, 20M might be enough but Palermo isn't going to let him leave for 20. They want 70 or he's staying = They just want Pastore to stay. And they will need him to stay if Palermo ever want to reach the Italian top spots imo. So they'll do whatever they can to keep him.

    The Good Dr. Shame reacted to DLO in Ozil for Pastore + Sahin Nuri   
    Re: Ozil for Pastore + Sahin Nuri
    Well firstly Sahin and Pastore are probably two of the flavours of the month so I doubt anyone will dare go against these two on the forum no matter what the deal. Can't see an objective set of opinions on these guys.
    So many factors need to go right/not go wrong for Pastore to rise (can you really see him excelling IF he moves to the premiership? Definitely needs a move away from Palermo before any heavy heights. Spain or a move to a bigger team in Italy would be more advisable for his career imo) Sahin has a platform to rise at Dortmund but only to an extent. They need to establish themselves in Germany for season or two more and/or Europe before we can talk much more beyond 92.
    Ozil's got everything club, national team. I don't think he's going to be stunted by Barca, Real are miles ahead of everyone else in Spain too they're just unlucky at how good Barca is. If they can keep up the league form and make in-roads in Europe of course he can still rise. Not to mention the strength of the German national team these days.
    All that said for me it's a question of depth, if you lack it I can understand opting for Sahin and Pastore however if you are in need of a top quality AM/LM then Ozil (who I predict will be 94/95 by the end of the year) will probably be the best player in that position in world football in a couple of years. So you won't be able to do any better. It's really dependent on your squad and maybe your patience.

    Re: Me & Brother = Deals, will we get banned?
    i've been playing around with this for a while, and it might help to calm you down.
    luckily i had a GM in one of my WC's who was a flagrant cheat. even luckier still, he kept doing the exact same ridiculous routine (alias account, one 75 million bid for the same player, alias accepts bid, transfer completes and alias resigns). so, i got to know how SM work a little better during this.
    it is all about what details are included in the report. i deliberately sent vague reports a few times, and they were ignored. but as soon as i sent a coherent ticket, stating repeat offense and the fact that SM had already reversed the exact transfer once before, the deal was nixed and both managers (obviously actually the same guy) were banned from the league after his third attempt to transfer the player from A to B.
    so, from what i can see you have nothing to worry about. reports based on anger and jealousy make up a significant portion of total reports. SM will give you the standard "stfu we know what we're doing" reply unless you make a detailed case.
    ignore the number of reports, as it means very little. all you need to worry about is someone making a case that you have a history of this behavior and SM taking that seriously. that's how you get kicked out of game worlds.
    if, however, they suspect something, make a case immediately.

    Re: Drogba For Tevez and 35m!! Good Or Bad?
    It is a very bad idea for you to sell when this is the case. I don't care if it's Steven Fletcher, Drogba or Jake Edwards, if balls go in the net because of your forward, keep him playing. Forget average performance, forget who it is, forwards score goals.
    Lukaku has put up pretty average numbers for me, but i'm picking him over Bendtner this season to sit by Benzema because of goals.
    Also, the deal is not a good one. If i'm looking to loose Drogba, it's to fill a hole elsewhere, i.e. a Pique, or a Casillas, or a Fabrergas-type addition to a position left wanting. I would not be happy when that money's spent and i miss my fuzzy Didier on the long bus ride back from O'Groats, and Tevez shoots me that ridiculous "the **** you looking at?" horse's smile...
