  1. Re: Match engine To be equitable I will look at all matches in this turn Div 3 of Forum Championship.... Palermo 1 - 0 Sporting Possession 51% 49% Total Shots 12 14 Shots On Target 6 10 Corners 8 4 Yellow Cards 0 2 Red Cards 0 0 Palermo goalkeeper, Casillas was MotM with a 9 while Sporting's keeper, Santos got a 6. This seems to align with the match stats. Palermo played 3-2-2-1 Sporting played 4-4-1-1 with some runs made by a CB (fwd); and CMs (6[an AM] RFW; 8 [CM/AM] RBW) Hmmm, do runs make a difference? in the two matches looked at so far the two teams who made runs have lost.
  2. Re: Match engine Yes, dear, that's my point. This is not about the result. It's about the ratings/engines/tactics. The above discussed match is just a starting point.
  3. Re: Match engine I too have noted with some incredulity the frequency with which unmanaged clubs playing 4-4-2 with vastly inferior rated teams beat a good managed team.
  4. Re: Match engine Besiktas's goal was scored on 88 minutes. after the Gremio substitutions. The only tactical change Gremio made at 75 minutes was to have the wide midfielders run forward. Can this have opened up the flanks for Besiktas to take advantage?
  5. Re: Match engine So, the first match I'm looking at is in the Forum Championship Division 3 match between my own Gremio and the Com managed Besiktas. The first thing of note is the goalkeeper ratings. Gremio had 14 shots on target to Besiktas's 8; yet Gremio's keeper rated a 7 to Unlu's 5. Add to this the fact that Besiktas won the game. Now, of course stats such as this can be misleading, so I'm hopping to monitor this sort of apparent anomaly ongoing to support the belief that the match engine is random and match ratings are meaningless. Another interesting point is the squad average rating. Gremio was 89; Besiktas was 82. note to self: those images are bit too big, buddy.
  6. I'm going to use this thread to document my thoughts on the match engine. Feel free to ignore or comment as you see fit. edit: going to talk to myself about tactics and player ratings and positions as well.
  7. I swapped Messi for Neymar, Cavani and 55m. in no gameworld I am in is messi as good as he is in real life. in fact, in the game i sold him he played 18 games with 2 goals and four assists. I'm happy to get two up-and-comers like those mentioned plus a load of readies.

  18. Re: GC124 Official Thread ****STOP PRESS STOP PRESS STOP PRESS STOP PRESS STOP PRESS STOP PRESS ***** Fitzsimmons Takes Control of Torquay Fans and players of Torquay United have been celebrating after Torquay United unveiled legendary manager, Maurice Fitzsimmons and the new head coach. At a lavish press conference on Fitzsimmons own private yacht anchored in Torquay harbour, Fitzsimmons told the gathered international media that he intends to take Torquay to the very top. 'As I stand her today, in my ray Bans, swimming pants and flip flops, I say to you, people of the world: Torquay will be the greatest football team of all time. I know you laugh, I know you sneer.... believe me it will happen. 'I have already started on my squad, I'll be getting rid of the cloggers, of which there are legion, and replacing them with the very best players available. Beware world, beware all. You ain't seen nothing yet.' Fitzsimmons wasted no time in freshening up his squad, with free signings, with midfielder Jorge Ortiz and striker, Tomas Pekhart already signed to the Plainmoor club. Ends....
