  1. Personally I can't see any chance of +2. I'd say it's 50/50 between +1/stay
  2. Very much doubt they'll get a transfer ban. Also rumours coming from my neck of the woods (Villa), that Wenger wants to sign Ron Vlaar on a free.
  3. You are probably right that the season he's had does deserve it. I am engrained in the SM way of thinking - unfashionable player/club/age and similar factors going against players.
  4. Playing for a bottom half team makes it very difficult to get a rise to 88 or 89 imo, therefore you will not see many players rated this highly in such teams. Berahino is the exception as he scored 20 goals last season and he is also very young and has lots of potential. Brunt is an average player with the exception of his free kick and corner tacking abilities, wouldn't get in a top 10 team, whereas Berahino would.
  5. Looks like Gateshead are certainties to be in Div 4 next season, they will find themselves alongside my Stevenage team. Recently taken over and locked in Div 4 mid-table after a couple of early victories, gives me time to get my squad sorted ready to mount a promotion push in my first full season next time.
  6. Promotion battle hots up in Div 3 between myself (QPR), Norwich and Man City currently on winning streaks in the top 3. Swindon in 4th cannot be counted out either and have possibly the strongest squad in the Division!
  7. Two very competitive English Championships are: 5579 (game world ID to join: 39239) and English Championship 28697 (game world ID to join: 199857). Of course the Gold Championships are always very competitive, new one starting 9AM Sunday GMT.
  8. Hi all, The new Gold Championship is starting Sunday 9AM GMT. I am thinking of going into one of the smaller leagues for a challenge, e.g Switzerland, Korea, Israel or Scotland. I was wondering if anyone else was interested in joining me? Reason I ask is that I know these smaller leagues often become uncompetitive after a while, so if we could get a few of us in one of them it could be a very good battle. Let me know your thoughts on league. Dan
  9. I'm looking forward to seeing what Jack Grealish rises to in June, have him in 2 GW's. Currently an 80. What are people's thoughts, 83-84?
  10. 2 wins out of 2 now for QPR The game is filling up even more now, think the last count was 47/80 clubs taken. Good going for a game of this age!
  11. Re: English Championship 5579 - Discussion Thread Thank-you. I got off to a winning start with a 2-1 home win Have also made my first signings in the transfer market, and they include England International Fabian Delph (88) and experienced goalkeeper Pepe Reina (90). Planning several more in the next few days as I shape my squad.
  12. Re: Official Aston Villa Thread ! * no spoilers * I'm really hoping these rumours aren't true. They need to borrow money to even afford the £150 million asking price, thus instantly putting the club in debt upon purchase. Obviously we do need a takeover, but it needs to be to the right people, wealthy but with the club's interests at heart. The relaxing of the FFP rules which Platini has announced may help.
  13. Re: Ultimate Squad Challenge - USC (NEW CHALLENGING GAME WORLD) I'm chasing promotion from Div.4, looking forward to bringing in some quality 88 rated players next season when the cap increases, hopefully this is in Div. 3.
  14. Re: Bundesliga Ratings Discussion Thoughts on a possible rise for Alexander Meier with his 19 goals this season? Surely a good chance of a 90. Crossing my fingers as I have him in a custom GW. Also Franco Di Santo, thoughts on 87-88?
  15. Re: English Premiership Rating Predictions Am I right in thinking Loftus-Cheek has been reviewed and stayed the same rating? I have him in a couple of GW's and his position has very recently been reviewed and changed, surely if his rating was going to change they would have done this at the same time?
  16. Re: English Championship 5579 - Discussion Thread The SMFA offered me the QPR job in this game world, and I was unsure at first (I normally go for custom game worlds and gold championships) and was also aware this was a very old game. However, seeing that over 40 managers are still in the GW after 14 seasons, that told me everything I needed to know about the strength of the GW! Needless to say I took the job and am looking forward to the challenge (currently top of Div. 3), aiming to get back-to-back promotions to Div.1.
  17. Are there any game worlds it isn't possible to create, but you wish it was? For example If SM had the database I'd love to see a 'Legends' game, where only retired players existed. So the likes of Baggio, Bergkamp, De Boer (x2) Ronaldo (Brazilian), Roberto Carlos, Cafu, Pele, Maradona, Beckham, etc. It would probably be broken down by decades, so a 90s legends game, an 80s legends game, and so on.
  18. Re: ||Deal With It|| Yes as long as people don't make any cheeky bids for each others players that their chairmen have signed (once the transfer bans are lifted) that should work.
  19. Re: ||Deal With It|| Lol. Out of interest, is there a rule that can be put in place to stop people buying players for 2 seasons, or is that just done on a trust basis?
  20. Re: ||Deal With It|| This is the best concept for a custom game world I have seen on the forum to date. Do you have a waiting list for this game world, Fluffy? I have been registered and browsed the forums for several years although rarely posted until recently.
