  1. Re: Official Red Devils thread And remember boys, no signings in January!
  2. Re: Bundesliga Ratings 2011/2012 (I) Stepping stone?? Really? Do you guys even realize how insulting that is for a club like Dortmund? And what do you mean by "could have gone to a bigger club"? Dortmund is twice the club Chelski or y will ever be and I for one would rather play for Dortmund than premature ejArsenal or 20-years-without-the-league-title Liverpool, or in a league as decaying as the Italian or as pathetic as the Spanish. IMO this was a great move for Reus. There's hardly any adaptation required and I'm pleased he was able to capitalize his amazing form into a very big transfer b
  3. Re: Official Bundesliga Discussion Thread Wow, that's a fantastic signing for Dortmund. If they keep the likes of Gotze I can see them going places in the CL next year (assuming they qualify directly to the group stage). I must admit I was rather disappointed with their performance there this season, as I was with Porto. By the way, what do you think of Vieirinha's chances in Wolfsburg? He's an old favourite of mine.
  4. Re: Football Manager 2012 Has anyone tried to buy Khalfan Ibrahim? He's a 23-year old Qatari international, plays as a winger. I bought him during my first season for Nacional da Madeira and he simply rocked the Portuguese League. Came on a cheap deal too, costed 120k (plus small signing and agent fees) and he wasn't even the top earner in my club. He's transfer-listed from Al Sadd at the beginning of the game (no idea why), thus he'll accept any offer from small clubs. I had to fight for his signing against the likes of Sporting Gijon and Hibernian. His attributes on the first season were 15
  5. Re: The Drafting League I wouldn't mind doing some trades! My team turned out to be pathetic in the attack. However, I think we need the drafting grid first. I mean, I doubt there'll be much trades (if any) consisting of player X for player Y or player X and Y for player Z. That's where drafting can take an interesting niche, seeing that money doesn't play a role here. I could trade a player and a pick for another player. But if we don't have the drafting lineup there isn't be much use for now... How did the result predictions come along?
  6. Re: Official Chelsea FC Thread Sadly' date=' you aren't the one who decides it. He won't move now though. ...Okay, so you've never seen Hulk. That's all right, he'll be in England soon enough.
  7. Re: Official Chelsea FC Thread Are you implying that Hulk is not a proper winger? Maybe not in the classical sense of the word, but the wings have been his natural position since he came to Europe and that's where he causes more damage.
  8. Re: Tired of Concerns! Not true. I've had concerns both from wages and lack of games by youth players.
  9. Re: English Premiership Rating Predictions 2011/2012 Pleased with the reviews of Nani, David Silva, Mata, Balotelli, Welbeck, Charlie Adam and Smalling. Not so pleased with De Gea, Koscielny and Lescott all staying. Shocked with Ashley Young and Modric's changes. Basically these are my feelings towards the outcome in England. I'm not sure what happened but SM managed to screw both England and Spain. Hopefully they'll do better next time.
  10. Re: FWC '11 Group F I'd vote for Elohim this time, but he's set to run away with the poll. That said, I'll go for... Ken!
  11. Re: FWC '11 Group E All I have to say is: Kaputt Deutsch Schweinsteiger Angela Merkel Volkswagen Oktoberfest Bier Der Spiegel. Pure German right here, mixed in a single and meaningful sentence.
  12. Re: FWC '11 Group C Whaaat? Who's EdMoses? ... Geez, a guy can't go on a semi-vacation without getting thrown out of the FWC. Not that it matters but my vote would have gone to Ray, though I must admit I never got too personal with anyone from this group. Congrats to Ed!
  13. Re: Football Manager 2012 Am I the only one who fails to understand where your moral high ground was?
  14. Re: Respuesta: PORTUGAL – 1st and 2nd Division extensive thread - Discussion Thread Man of the match performance in just 30 minutes. Fantastic attitude and celebration as well. Nobody deserved the goal more than him - except perhaps Kléber. If he wasn't one of our top earners I'd really love to see him staying another season, see if he could rise above his injuries and show the same quality of his debut year. I know he has it inside him, all he needs is a good stretch of games to keep his form. Too bad we're almost in January and he's probably leaving, I think our best trio to play up front
  15. Re: Drafted Players + Reports Thread Roma V Man City AWAY Borussia Dortmund V Bayern Munich HOME Man United V Valencia DRAW Milan V Inter HOME Porto V Real Madrid HOME Barcelona V Arsenal HOME Tottenham V Liverpool AWAY Chelsea V PSG HOME
  16. Re: Help With Deal(s) Thread... Hmm... 5 Championship matches out of 21 doesn't look very exciting to me. However he has played as a starter lately. Is he worth a shot? He's not going to play in my team anyway since GKs never get injured...
  17. Re: Help With Deal(s) Thread... I'm looking for a cheap GK (anything from 75 to 80) to serve as a reserve. Preferably one who's rising in the upcoming English/Spanish changes. Any ideas? Edit: Courtois is not an option.
  18. Re: UEFA Europa League 2010/2011 Manchester City, with the decisive match being played away. Great! And we'll face Sporting if we get through. Fantastic!
  19. Re: PORTUGAL – 1st and 2nd Division extensive thread - Discussion Thread OK, I'll go through this again. Playing Moutinho and Defour at the same time would only make sense if we wanted to play a game of extreme ball possession. Now here's the catch: we do not have a team/manager suited for playing that way. Our centre-backs have been looking rubbish this season since day one and became a liability from night to day. No CB's = no stability = no assurances if the team happens to lose the ball in the possession game. It's that simple. Then we have no RB since Sapunaru has been injured for eons
  20. Re: The Drafting League Bump! The thread is dying. We need to do something creative about the setup, see if we can revitalize the banter a bit. How's the progress about the next draft? Anyway, I lost to Kari's second team in the cup. I used most of my starters since the league was no longer my primary concern, so I'm kinda disappointed.
