  1. Re: Official Bundesliga Discussion Thread With Piszczek likely out for most of the first half of next season, I assume Papastathopoulos could be a strong contender for the RB spot during that time (probably between him and Großkreutz if no other players for that position are brought in), and probably still a decent alternative for both the CB and RB spot afterwards, even in games against calibres better than Fürth. I also think that an overall package of around 12M € including eventual additional fees for a successful CL title defence for example would still be fair, considering his qualities and his possible resale value. If he doesn't cut it or gets unhappy in 2 or 3 years, there will probably still be enough interested clubs to get a similar sum for him again when he's around 26-28 and still has a good 5 years or so ahead of him. It might maybe even lead to a bit of a tactical change, with some sort of 3 men at the back for example. All in all, a transfer that would definitely make sense in my opinion and that I could see happening if Werder and Dortmund agree on a reasonable fee.
  2. Re: Official Bundesliga Discussion Thread By the looks of it he'll work as an expert for Sky from next season on.
  3. Re: Serie A Rating Predictions 2012/13 Can anyone explain me why Ivan Piris from Roma got a -2 today? From what I can tell he's a regular for a team of the upper third in the Serie A, so why on earth does he drop to 85? Even worse when you compare it with players like Salihovic who's likely to get relegated with the club he barely plays for (although fit) and yet remains on a 89...
  4. Re: Zinedine Zidane That's actually not a bug, or glitch, or even a hack as someone suspected, but a feature from SM that you can actually browse through all players by entering their ID. http://www.soccermanager.com/player.php?pid=1 That's the link to Lehmann's SM profile for example. If you change the number at the end you can look through basically every player ever on the DB.

  6. Re: Problems with page loading SM's "image server" (http://smimgs.com/) seems to be down, so obviously no pictures are loading. Some might still be able to see most pages properly since the images might still be available in the cache, but once you clear it or press Ctrl+F5 to reload you'll only see basic text.

  9. Re: Official Bundesliga Discussion Thread Why would I be angry? Tbh, when I first heard about it yesterday morning I didn't believe it at first and just considered it to be another idiotic lie from the Bild, but when it was confirmed, I was devastated for a second. After a bit of time that feeling was gone though, and now I'm back to being extremely excited about the UCL semi-final (still can't believe it actually). Regarding Götze, I am maybe a bit disappointed, but I can't say I didn't see his departure coming. Probably not so soon, and probably not to Bayern either, and definitely not at such a unsuitable time, but he's always been very professional, and from a professional point of view his move is kinda comprehensible. All the fans - including me - have that side in them that gives them a romantic image of 11 good friends on the pitch, but I am 'experienced' enough at being a fan to also see the many, many business sides of football. All in all, Borussia is more than one player, it's more than 11 players, it's more than all the current staff, and one transfer (and even if it become 1,2,3 transfers more) doesn't change my support for them in the slightest, I have definitely seen darker times than that, and yet I'm still black and yellow

  12. Re: Bundesliga Ratings 2012/2013 You might or might not like the new positional system, but then using Großkreutz as an example to show what is supposedly wrong with it in your eyes must be one of the most idiotic things ever and just shows how little you understand about Dortmund, probably even football in general. If anything, Großkreutz is the perfect example what the great advantage of the new positional system is, he simply is that versatile and plays each of these positions equally well. We all agree that he's not the most naturally gifted player in the world, but he makes up for that with an incredible work rate, and more importantly, with the ability to perfectly bring the tactical demands of the coaching staff on the pitch. And that makes him incredibly valuable anywhere on both flanks, and 89 is a very suitable rating for someone who's basically the first alternative for each of his "new" positions. If you want to bring up some examples for the flaws in the new positional system, at least use some players where it makes sense, there's no way Puyol is as good as a full-back as he is as a centre back, Bale is never a 93 rated defender, and apart from the fact that I can't even remember Schweinsteiger ever playing there, he'd definitely never be a 94 rated, (maybe even soon 95 rated) attacking centre midfielder. But having Großkreutz in that list IMO is a very clear sign that you have no clue of what you're talking about and just look for a simple way to whine about SM.

  15. Re: Bundesliga Ratings 2012/2013 He had much more opportunity to shine at Schalke, back then he had about 5 world class saves each game and then a mistake every 5 games, now he's just got the mistake every 5 games without any good saves in between. I fail to see how that would warrant any further rises (and how it warranted the previous one as well)...
  16. Re: Bundesliga Ratings 2012/2013 Actually, he should NOT have any chance either way. Dante would be more worthy of a 94 than him...
