  1. Re: PORTUGAL – 1st and 2nd Division extensive thread - Discussion Thread What??? Common, be reasonable. First of all, quotation marks are not needed in the first sentence. Secondly, Witsel is a good player but he is no Moutinho. The Belgian was on top of his game at the beginning of the season and still his performances were narrowly better than Moutinho's on an average form. Now that Moutinho is playing at full throttle Witsel can't hold a candle to him. I'd go as far as saying that Witsel would be 3rd choice for Porto. And maybe even 4th if Guarin wasn't waiting to leave the team in Janua
  2. Re: The Ultimate SM Championship Still 4 points ahead despite tonight's 1-1 against Palermo.
  3. Re: Official Chelsea FC Thread I wouldn't say it is 100% accurate but Porto is looking to sell some players who should have left in the summer already and AVB is eager to have a couple of his former co-workers back. Mourinho-esque tendency I guess. Chelsea needs talented wide players like water in the desert, and a holding midfielder too. Alvaro Pereira and Moutinho fit the bill and there's a lot more than rumours spreading in our circles... But don't worry, January will come soon enough.
  4. Re: Official Chelsea FC Thread Haha, please...
  5. Re: Official Chelsea FC Thread Alvaro Pereira to Chelsea in January. Can't say I'm too happy about it, he has been playing very well lately. But I suppose we could use the money for an extra CF. João Moutinho is also being discussed but I'm not sure if he's leaving in January or in the Summer.
  6. Re: SM Private Messages Manchester United 'suck' in the CL this season too. So what? Arsenal or Chelsea are now superior because they progressed? Fine by me. We were extremely unlucky not to qualify. You were simply incompetent. Not to mention you had by far the easiest group in the competition. But we're going a bit off topic aren't we? See you in EL.
  7. Re: UEFA Champions League Discussion thread Indeed? I believe there are some quality teams in Europa League this season. Whether the English will walk over it will depend on how seriously they'll face the fact that Europa League is a 2nd tier European competition. Honestly I think neither of the Manchesters will be in the final simply because they will reach a point were the PL title will be a showdown between them both and Europa League will be regarded as the least of priorities. I'd say Porto and Valencia are probably the teams to be reckoned with. Porto currently holds the title and the
  8. Re: The Ultimate SM Championship Wolves got past Marseille and qualified for the semis of the USMC Cup. We were also the strongest bidders and managed to add Banega to the roster. I'm very pleased with the deal as I was finally able to get rid of Flamini on a decent P/E. Things are looking good for the team ATM.
  9. Re: PORTUGAL – 1st and 2nd Division extensive thread - Discussion Thread Noope. Cardozo is a pure CF. Rodrigo is not even close to that.
  10. Re: The Ultimate SM Championship One man show performance by Gomez proved to be insufficient for Cagliari to overcome 10-man Wolves. 3 points clear in the 1st place now.
  11. Re: Official Euro 2012 Thread England can't "destroy" any NT, let alone Ireland.
  12. Re: Official Euro 2012 Thread Germany and Holland. How depressing for the Portuguese.
  13. Re: The Ultimate SM Championship I paid the price for not resting the team in the cup and my second team was hold to a draw. I'm tied with Middlesbrough again...
  14. Re: The Ultimate SM Championship Wolves climb to the top of the league on GD after beating a stronger and fitter side in Genoa. I'm happy with the performance considering I used a mixture of high rated and substitute players. Perhaps we might have a chance of winning back-to-back league titles.
  15. Re: PORTUGAL – 1st and 2nd Division extensive thread - Discussion Thread Didn't surprise me' date=' 1/3 os Wolfswinkel's goals were from PKs. And I predicted +2 for Iturbe and he got +3. Like I said above, both James and Gaitan should rise to 90 at the end of the season. Kléber is keep rising steadily and I'd say 88 in the next changes is a more than realistic prediction. Guarin won't rise for sure, game time is devided between him, Belluschi and Defour, but there were some rumour that he might leave in January. I'd keep him until the end of the January TM before making any decision. I
  16. Re: PORTUGAL – 1st and 2nd Division extensive thread - Discussion Thread I won't bother with that dude any more. I repeat, he's complaining because he bought a 31 yo winger from relegation candidates Paços de Ferreira. Big LOL. There are a lot of people, and I really mean A LOT, who made money because of my predictions. Let's see... after taking a look at one of my teams in SM I can tell you that you had Carrillo, Rubio, Ewerton, N'Diaye, Faouzi, Abdoulaye, Sissoko, Mexer, Cauê, Salvador Agra, Elvis, Djaniny, Melgarejo, Michel, Elizeu, Sami, Kelvin, Atsu... GEEZ! I won't even take a look at t
  17. Re: PORTUGAL – 1st and 2nd Division extensive thread - Discussion Thread To be fair it was a single person. Anyway I've got 90%+ of correct predictions thus I see no motives to complain. Thanks for the support. Oh, I and don't think selling Gaitan was a good choice.
  18. Re: PORTUGAL – 1st and 2nd Division extensive thread - Discussion Thread
  19. Re: PORTUGAL – 1st and 2nd Division extensive thread - Discussion Thread 8 goals and 9 assists in 17 matches plus 5 caps for Brazil. Pretty darn good for a winger. The point is that only two players in the world were better than Hulk this year in terms of stats: Messi and Ronaldo. That's a fact. He should have gone to 92, it was a no-brainer IMO.
