  1. Re: Dilemma It's a hard one but it should definitely be between Lavezzi and Suarez. Llorente has two things against him which may stop him from rising past 90: 1) He's Basque, playing for a Basque team in Bilbao who are quite good at managing to hang onto their best players. If this happens then Llorente won't be playing much european football. 2) The competition that Llorente faces to try and force his way into the national team is fierce. He's never going to displace Villa or Torres for a long time and Negredo, who's the same age as Llorente, in my book is a better CF with more potential
  2. I don't know a lot about this guy and I was wondering if anybody has seen him play a bit. I've just done my scouting solely on statistics and video clips and from those I've seen that he's a tall, powerful and quick center forward who looks like he knows where the goal is. Does this sum him up? Is there potential? Is he lacking in technical ability? Any opinions would be welcome.
  3. Re: Your best starting 11 of all time.
  4. Re: Gervinho Or Dzageov ???? Potentiol ??? No, it's spelled Dzagoev.
  5. Re: Your best starting 11 of all time. Very good team my friend, attacking, yet balanced.
  6. Re: Your best starting 11 of all time. Good team. Very carefully put together. LOL
  7. Re: Need Help Negredo, and do it quickly my friend. He's rated 90 just now and there has been some noise that Liverpool are interested in him to partner Torres upfront. Even if that doesn't happen, one thing is for sure, he won't be at Almeria for the start of the new season. The guy is hot property.
  8. Re: Favorite British Crime Film? I really hope he doesn't butcher it. The best place to get the Firm would be on the net. Amazon are doing the special edition, brand new for £10.18. The film only lasts for about an 1hr but it beats all the newer hooligan films hands down in my book.
  9. Re: Favorite British Crime Film? Agreed. Scum is a classic. The pool ball in the sock alone makes it worth watching. ID is the one I voted for out of the list though. Along with The Firm, starring Gary Oldman, I believe it portrays the most accurate picture of British football hooliganism in the 1980's. Shane Meadow's low budget film, "Dead man's shoes", is also worth a watch.
  10. Re: Gervinho Or Dzageov ???? Potentiol ??? Dzagoev. Looks like he has all the tools to be the best Russian player since Oleg Blokhin. I know Blokhin was born in Kiev so that now makes him Ukrainian but he did play for the old Soviet Union so you know what I mean.
  11. Re: Dream Team Quite attack minded, but here goes. GK: Casillas RB: Maicon CB: Vidic CB: Terry LB: Lahm CM/DM: Essien R/Wing: Maxi Rodriguez L/Wing: Ronaldo RAM: Messi LAM: Iniesta CF: Villa Subs: Buffon Ferdinand Xavi Gerrard Torres
  12. I'm not sure if there's been a thread on this before as I'm not too great at working the search tool. So if there has been a thread on this before, I do apologize. What I want to know is as the title suggests, what would be your all time best 11 and 5 subs. I'll start the ball rolling by giving you mine: GK: Lev Yashin RB: Carlos Alberto CB: Franco Baresi CB: Franz Beckenbauer LB: Paolo Maldini DM: Lothar Mattias RM: Roberto Donadoni RAM: Diego Maradona LAM: Pele LM: Gheorghe Hagi CF: Marco Van Basten Subs: Dino Zoff Andreas Brehme Luis Enrique Michel Platini Gerd Mulle
  13. Re: Playing with 4-4-2 diamond In my experience this formation only works when you're playing against a flat 4-4-2. I've taken two heavy defeats playing with this formation and although the match statistics on each occasion lead me to believe that I was slightly unlucky to take those two defeats I will now only play the 4-4-2 diamond as a last resort due to injuries or suspensions. This doesn't mean that you can't be successful using this formation, I've just had a bit of a bad time with it that's all. I'm having a bit of success using the 4-2-3-1 formation with an attacking mentality and qui
  14. Re: SCHWEINSTEIGER for 49 mil? Not so quick. You need to ask yourself a couple of questions first: 1) What value does cash have in your gameworld? Are players constantly being bought and sold for ridiculous sums way in excess of the chairman's value? If so then you may struggle to find a replacement with that money. 2) Who is your backup right sided midfield player and is he good enough to fill Schweinsteiger's shoes? If no, then is there a replacement that you could DEFINAETLY sign? You mentioned that Schweinsteiger is performing very well for you so you definately weren't looking to se
  15. Re: Will Ronaldo go because of the CL final? Say your decison on this Thread It'll get to the stage where Ronaldo will have to make a decision otherwise the decision may get made for him. I'm sure Sir Alex is getting fed up with the "Will I go, or won't I", and the Man Utd fans certainly are. It could end up that Man Utd finally accept an offer from Real which will no doubt be a ridiculous offer and basically tell Ronaldo, "Pack your bags".
  16. Re: Britain's Got Talent Final! I think Diversity needed the win more than Susan as I'm sure Simon Cowell has already signed her to a record deal. Maybe the public realised this and voted accordingly. I wouldn't have voted for Susan Boyle either. Undeniably she has an amazing voice, my question would be, "What's wrong with X-Factor". That for me is the TV show where signing talent belongs. Britains got talent should be for all other acts.
  17. Re: Britain's Got Talent Final! I guess I'm the only one who felt that Flawless were the better dance crew out of the two. For me Diversity were all about Choregraphy and less about dancing. That for me was the only place that Flawless fell short of Diversity in, everything else, Flawless were better.
  18. Re: Guiseppe Rossi Or Lisandro Keep Rossi. They are both excellent forwards and as you know Rossi is 1 rating below Lisandro at 91, however if Rossi keeps up his current form he will keep rising for some time. If Lisandro stays at Porto then 92 will be his maximum. Rossi plays in a better league and arguably has a better chance of succeeding internationally due to the competition Lisandro has with Argentina, Tevez, Aguero, Higuian and Lavezzi etc. What you also have to remember is that Rossi is four years younger than Lisandro as well. Your call but if it were me I would keep Rossi out of the
  19. Re: Would Barcelona be able to cope in the Premiership-my rant Barcelona would be REAL contenders in the EPL for sure. Attacking wise Barcelona would put 4,5 or even 6 past some of the lower/mid table EPL teams quite regularly. They would destroy some of the teams with their attacking prowess to the point where it'd be quite embarrassing at times. On a serious note their would be some things that Barca would have to adapt to: 1) There would be an extra few games to play in a season but it's not as if Barca have frail players who wouldn't cope. It would just take a couple of games to get used
  20. Re: Does Xavi deserve his 97? I to don't think there should be an argument about this either. Gerrard and Xavi would be the perfect centre midfield pair if they played together wouldn't they? This shows that they are different. Gerrard would make the surging runs, get the shots on goal leading to goals and close down opponents quickly, basically using his energy. On the other hand you would have Xavi sitting behind Gerrard controlling the tempo of the game with his awesome passing and unrivaled first touch and control. In short, both players are well worthy of their 97 ratings.
  21. Re: This is not fair... The main difference between Lampard and Gerrard is that Gerrard is a proper box to box midfield player. Pretty much Lampard's whole game is arriving late in the box to get on the end of a rebound or arriving at the edge of the box in space to get a clean shot off. Don't get me wrong, this side of Lampard's game is very profitable to Chelsea but Lampard doesn't contribute nearly as much overall to Chelsea as Gerrard does to Liverpool. Lampard really looks like a forward who's been converted into a midfielder due to a lack of pace. His main focus has always been goalscor
  22. Re: Alberto Gilardino Have to agree with Man Utd here. Gilardino was stinking the place out the whole time he was at Milan. Granted he's been exceptional this season for Fiorientina but we're talking about an increase for a player who is already highly rated at 92. It takes a bit more than one good season to wash away the bad taste from his stint at Milan. Gilardino has to continue this seasons brilliant form into next season. If he does this then come the next Italian changes he will get his +1 up to 93.
  23. Re: UEFA Champions League Discussion thread Imagine it wasn't 3-0 to Man Utd at the time of Fletcher's tackle. Say it was 0-0 and Fabregas was through on goal and Fletcher made the same tackle, nicking the ball slightly and then flattening Fabregas stopping the shot and probable goal. Would it have been deemed as harsh to give a penalty in those circumstances? Probably not. I think a lot of the shock that's come with the decision is down to the fact that Man Utd were cruising at the time. The red card was uncalled for though. The penalty is punishment enough.
