  1. Re: Gold Championship 1 News Sudden Change as Beddie Heads To Lazio Despite having only recently taken over as Levante manager, Tadashi Beddie has quickly changed his place of appointment, deciding to move to Lazio. The whole squad is up for player exchange deals. Beddie is very interested in doing business before the first fixture of the coming season.
  2. Re: Gold Championship 1 News Levante Appoint Beddie Japanese-American manager Tadashi Beddie is re-joining SM with a new account after a long hiatus. He has taken on Levante UD, due to their playing in a competitive league with strong managers, and strong financial position. Beddie will be hoping to make some cash deals over the next few days.

  5. I think that match fitness should be returned to International Games with a new element added to create a more authentic feeling to the International games, and make it worth managing. I think that a dead-line should be made for international team-sheets to be submitted before the game, and the squad should be chosen days before. For each game, the international manager has to request to the club team that a certain player be allowed to join the national team. If managers do not send in the requests early enough, they will not be able to find replacements in time, and therefor they will struggle. Why would the club teams let the players leave in most cases? If a key player is not allowed to play for the national team for many games in a row, then he will develop concerns, and perhaps even hand in a transfer request if the trend continues in order to have the opportunity to play for his country. I think that without match fitness and injuries being involved in the International games, the World Cup really isn't worth winning. Yes it will make the game harder, but isn't it more of an achievement when you win despite all of the disadvantages that you may have? By being able to reject a player's national team request once in a while, teams will be able to keep their players rested for key games and finals, however, I think this added element will help make the world cup more interesting and more prestigious. And of course, the World Cup squad should be made to be cut down to 23, and chosen 2 days before the start of the world cup. Club teams will not have the opportunity to reject national team call-ups for the World Cup, so if they get injured, tough luck. But I really think that this would add to the game. Any feedback is welcome

  7. Re: The Platinum Gameworld if we lower the amount of money going in, and increase the amount of teams there are, the fighting to get risers in order to get lower teams slowly up the table will become considerably harder, but definitely worth it. And lower teams would be willing to give up a good prospect for a big amount of money to load up in order to buy, say, two lower rated risers that will rise to the same rating as the previous one. it would become in interesting process if the whole game world is full and many teams are trying to do this, and it will also generate cash flow... is we have a hugely competitive gameworld, it would be full, and if it's full, then the cash should flow from bigger teams to smaller ones...
  8. Let's all be honest: the Gold Championships these days just aren't very interesting. SO I was thinking that if SM could make just ONE extremely competitive gameworld, it would benefit everyone. If there is anymore than one, it gets less and less interesting, so let's make it just one. It'll essentially be a Gold Championship, just bigger and much, much more harsh. Firstly, managers will be ranked throughout the gameworld under three separate criteria. One, the games one as usual, two, the money that they would have earned, and 3 a point system for winning major trophies where a Champions Cup title would give the manager 10 points, a Champions Shield 9, and so on. When you join a team, you will negotiate a contract with the chairman. It will be for a set duration, and your "salary" will depend on your experience and previous achievements. When you sign this contract, it will also have a penalty clause for, for example, loosing an important derby, or finishing in the league in a certain spot, or going into a loosing streak of x games. At the beginning of each season, there will also be the usual goals, as well as this time a minimum expected. The minimum will be set for the end of the season as well as halfway through the season, and if the manager has not hit the minimum expected by the chairman, they will promptly be sacked, a new manager will be offered the job, and you will be offered some jobs or will apply for an open position. This will result in managers trying a lot harder, and also giving other managers chances of good jobs. Every time a major team sacks its manager, it will also send out offers to several managers that are doing very well, but are within the club's financial limits. Each manager will be ranked how much they're worth by recent form as well as previous achievements. However, recent form will count for more. THe manager ranking numbers will all be taken into account. I think that managing a national team should also be taken more seriously this way, as the whole point of this game world would be to climb up the manager rankings, and managing a national team and doing well would mean a higher salary, more points one, and winning the WC could mean, perhaps, 20 trophy points. Also, expanding the gameworld into all the possible leagues, and adding a play-off system to join the SMFA tournaments, and perhaps separating them into 4 different tournaments (The Americas, Europe, and Asia) would also mean another tournament for teams to aim to win (The SMFA Club World Cup). Finally, adding a transfer window would make managers have to think more of their transfers, planning more carefully for the season ahead, and more deals to be agreed over PMs. It would also make the transfer season a lot more competitive in my opinion, because managers will have to sign players for the next half season that will ensure that they do not get fired. I understand that this is a long shot and I don't have a lot of time at the moment so it may not be completely clear what I'm aiming at, but feel free to ask any questions. I feel that if SM manage to create just ONE gameworld like this and perhaps ask to pay a premium per 2 years, eg the current GM price + $5 for joining the platinum gameworld, would be able to keep their financial ambitions healthy, while also keeping this game from dying. I want a more realistic, and more competitive game world to play in. I think this would be the perfect solution because I know that there are many managers out there that want to feel pride in actually winning these tournaments, and doing well with these teams.
  9. Re: GC151 Premiere League Thread Premier League Teams in Europe Results - Round 1 Our review of all 8 games of a pretty successful match day for Premier League teams in Europe. SMFA Champions Cup Group B Arsenal 2-2 Rangers (Scotland) Despite the visiting side taking the lead through David Wier's early strike, Arsenal came back with 2 goals from captain Diaby, only to be pinned back in the last 5 minutes. Although not a satisfactory result ahead of a capacity crowd at the Emirates, it was definitely a improvement to their last game. (Other Match: Real Madrid 1-3 Borussia Dortmund) Group C Chelsea 2-2 Shakhtar Donetsk (Ukraine) Again, another team who has improved on their last game, but is not at their best. Chelsea were only able to take 1 point despite opening the scoring through Mata. They were pegged back two goals on either side of the break, before Mikel equalized for the Blues. Mata was sent off and will not be available for their next game in Europe. (Other Match: Paris Saint-Germain 6-0 Cruz Azul) Group D Bayer Leverkusen (Germany) 2-3 Manchester United A second string Manchester United side were able to scrap out a win against Bundesliga side Leverkusen for their European opener. A goal for Park and a brace from Welbeck ensured the Devils return home with all points. (Other Match: CSKA Moskva 2-0 São Paulo) Group G Maccabi Haifa (Israel) 0-2 Manchester City A Manchester United boasting new signings from Barcelona Fabregas and Busquets in the starting lineup take home all 3 points thanks to a wonderful performance from on form Aguero, who scored a goal and provided one assist. However, Ruso will be without the services of Lescott for the next 6 days after picking up a knock. (Other Match: Olympiacos 2-1 Sevilla) SMFA Shield Group A Liverpool 2-1 Dynamo Kiev (Ukraine) 'Pool hosted Kiev and collected all 3 points due to goals from Kuyt and 18 year old Robinson, who completed a loan transfer to Scottish side Falkirk shortly after the match. Despite keeping all 3 points, the Reds produced a lackluster and unconvincing display. (Other Match: AEK Athens 1-2 Metalist) Group B Tottenham Hotspur 6-1 Feyenoord (Holland) Tottenham bounce back from their draw on opening day of the PL and destroy Dutch side Feyenoord 6-1 with a brace from Defoe and goals from Pienaar, Corluka, Huddlestone, and Van Der Vaart. (Other Match: Athletic Club 1-2 Dnipro) Group J Junior (Columbia) 1-3 Everton A 3-1 win in Columbia ensures that Everton start their European campaign by taking home all 3 points. The Merryside club take home the points courtesy of a brace from new signing Riviere and Cahill. (Other Match: PAOK 2-3 Spartak Moskva) Group O Aston Villa 1-1 Fenerbahçe SK (Turkey) Aston Villa keep one point to themselves thanks to Balotelli's strike, despite playing a very unconvincing game against the Turks. (Other Match: Motherwell 1-1 Toluca)

  13. Re: GC151 Premiere League Thread Premier League Teams in Europe Preview - Round 1 SMFA Champions Cup 3 of the 4 English teams in the Champions Cup this season have succumbed to defeat in their Premier League openers. This round of European football will show hopefully what these teams are actually capable of. Group B Arsenal vs Rangers (Scotland) Arsenal look to bounce back from their Premiere League opener loss against Sunderland by keeping all 3 points in their Group B opener tonight. (Other Match: Real Madrid - Borussia Dortmund) Group C Chelsea vs Shakhtar Donetsk (Ukraine) Chelsea also look to bounce back from a disappointing 3-1 loss against newly promoted QPR in their Premier League opener. Their loss comes as a big shock especially considering the amount of new marque signings the side made over the off-season, and this game could be considered a fresh start. (Other Match: Paris Saint-Germain - Cruz Azul) Group D Bayer Leverkusen (Germany) - Manchester United New Man. U manager Stephen Marshallay should be happy after winning the Manchester Derby against Man. C for their Premier League opener, however both Ferdinand and Vidic have picked up knocks and will be unavailable for their European curtain raiser. (Other Match: CSKA Moskva - São Paulo) Group G Maccabi Haifa (Israel) - Manchester City New Man. C manager Ruso will be disappointed after loosing his Premier League opener against Manchester rivals United, but the Romanian should be confident of taking all 3 points home from Isreal, especially if his 3 marque signings (Fabregas, Alonso and Busquets) are fit. (Other Match: Olympiacos vs Sevilla) SMFA Shield Group A Liverpool vs Dynamo Kiev (Ukraine) After starting their season with a 1-1 draw with Fulham, the Reds should be fairly confident of taking all 3 points against Kiev at Anfield. (Other Match: AEK Athens - Metalist) Group B Tottenham Hotspur vs Feyenoord (Holland) After a fairly successful transfer season under new manager Dan Kitey, the Spurs also started their season with a 1-1 draw, against Bolton, but should also be confident of taking all 3 points in their fixture.. (Other Match: Athletic Club - Dnipro) Group J Junior (Columbia) - Everton After starting the season with a 1-1 draw at Wigan, Everton will travel to Columbia confident of taking home all 3 points, even if their star players don't feature. (Other Match: PAOK - Spartak Moskva) Group O Aston Villa vs Fenerbahçe SK (Turkey) Despite drawing on their opener in the Premier League, Nathan Wood's men have impressed in their pre-season matches, and although they will have a tough game on their hands, should be confident of their chances of keeping all 3 points to themselves. However, Wood may deside to rest some of his stars as he has two back-to-back games against Manchester United and Arsenal up next in the Premier League. (Other Match: Motherwell - Toluca)

  15. Re: GC151 Premiere League Thread Season 1 - Round 1 Results Manchester United were victorious in the Manchester derby on opening day, as they beat Man. C courtesy of Ashley Young and Fletcher. There were a few surprises, as Chelsea succumbed to QPR 3-0,and Arsenal lost their opening game against Sunderland 1-0. Chelsea sit at the bottom of the table at the end of round 1, despite having made many transfers ahead of the season and even bringing in a new coach, while QPR top the table. Season 1 - Round 2 Fixtures Manchester city vs Liverpool looks to be the most entertaining game for next wednesday, while Aston Villa - Man. U should be a cracker as well. Everton - Fulham should be pretty good as well, and league toppers QPR face WBA in a D2 match up from last season.

  17. Re: Gold championship 151 Chelsea succumbed to an embarrassing 3-1 defeat against QPR on opening day in the premier league. Goals from Taarabat, Wright-Phillips, and new signing Iaquinta ensured that they keep all 3 points against a Chelsea team where 7 of the 13 players involved in the game were new signings. -Chelsea Manager Tadashi Beddie Chelsea next host Shakhtar Donetsk for their SMFA Champions Cup opener, and will host Wolves in their next Premier League matchup. The loss leaves Chelsea at last place place on opening day.

  22. Re: GC150 - The Forum Invasion / Choose the League! After disappearing off the SM map for a while, Japanese-American manager is (hopefully) back! As his assistant-manager had taken over and looked after Mallorca for the duration that he wasn't really on, Mallorca have dipped into the relegation zone in the Spanish League. "I'm really looking to rebuild the team. It's been a while, but I'm back, and I'm looking to stay. I just want to help Mallorca stay in the first division, and then aim for higher places" he said in a recent interview. "I'm really hoping to get a couple of loan deals in for strikers and wingers. I would really appreciate some 87+ rated wingers and strikers to come and help our cause here at Mallorca." If anyone has any players that they are willing to loan, please contact me with PMs. Thank you.
