  1. Re: World Champ 1 Any WC1'ers still around the forum?? I had been busy with my final year of uni and somehow allowed my star studded Sao Paulo to be relegated to div 2. Oh no! Made a good start to the new season though and hoping to see the big boys again next season!!!! Welcome to any new managers!!
  2. Re: Locked Setups Have to buy it mate... SM's evil plan to sell setups twice wouldn't work if they just unlocked setups to let people in
  3. Re: dai smout says discarded pizza boxes are a good source of free cheese.. the jesus of soccermanager is back... lol, welcome back... and YURI where have YOU been??
  4. Re: Marcio Rafinha if he the best in the universe why doesn't he play at a good team:eek:
  5. Re: Gold Championship Game World Economies This is not going to make cash more valuable in gold setups? I would not touch cash with a barge pole now that I know it can just be wiped out like that, so I doubt anyone else will either! Why don't they just make the chairman's value based on the total money in the game????? It doesn't take an economist to figure out that if money has inflated ten times over the period a setup has existed then the players' real value that a manager will pay is ten times as much! It would be really simple to put INFLATION into the game instead of tampering with peoples' teams! Just make a calculation of the total money in the game now (say 5,000,000,000) divided by the total money in the game before (say 4,500,000,000) = 1.111111 = 11.1% inflation so you make the value of each player go up by 11.1% at the end of the season.
  6. Re: Patriotism Challenge lol...rb's play well as lb's too... otherwise it would be marcelo with dani alves on the bench:confused: gonna sell alves to spread the quality around anyway
  7. Re: Patriotism Challenge If you can remember to the early days of SM they didn't rate South American football very highly, so when I joined towards the end of the 1st season Sao Paulo were in Division 3 with average rating of about 85. The team quickly made it to the top division and always finished high in the league. My ultimate achievement was beating chelsea to the 1st division title in season 7 (which they won in seasons 4, 5, 6, 8 and 9!): Just the top rated youth players are displayed as the rest would take pages and pages! It's really hard to get players over 90 so my strategy was a mixture of buying all the youth players of brazilian squads (one or two of every hundred unknown kids became high rated, the rest i sell when they turn 22), and the other tactic was to buy high rated foreign players and use them as bargaining chips. for example i spent a year trying to get maicon from liverpool - offering 50/60/70m with no success. then i picked up sagna and ballack for less than £40m and the manager was happy to swap for them! So i couldnt have got some of the best players without buying foreign in between. It was lots of fun doing it with the limitation of having to be brazilian and i still go scouting every now and then - i think a lot of managers lose interest after a while because they have no real strategy.
  8. Re: Patriotism Challenge arsenal... now that would be a challenge, or make liverpool completely spanish. that would be funny
  9. Re: Patriotism Challenge My Sao Paulo in WC1 has 153 brazilians and 0 foreigners:D adolf eat your heart out;)
  10. Re: Locked Setups when the setup is locked it continues playing as normal but no new managers can join, but old managers leave so the setup will be eventually abandoned unless someone wants to buy it and unlock it. very cheap trick by SM imo. no one is going to buy someone else's old abandoned setup when they could just make their own
  11. Re: Locked Setups I just posted and an admin wiped it! so i will take out the angry tone of it... the 2 i'm in are: 'Nellers forum setup' 'Hoot if you love haggis world leagues' Who's great idea was it to lock unowned setups? Now barca, chelsea, man utd's players are being ransacked because half of them are unmanaged. This will make SM about 50 quid and cost thousands of users their favourite setups! I think they should stick to their original model of earning through traffic & people subscribing if they love it so much. But not these little tax-like charges like having to buy an old setup If the reason for this is that they need to clear old setups to save bandwidth then how about having a 10 season limit, then if it's not owned it gets wiped at the end of that season? instead of just suddenly ruining 3 years of my team building!!! Thank you, and sorry to the moderator for the previous one.
  12. Re: World Champ 1 welcome to the game mate, did you trade alvin for it or did he just quit?? i have been trying to get hold of city's brazilians for ages but alvin was tight with them. if you are looking to raise money i would love to buy thiago silva, hernanes, rafael, or any of your other brazilians... cheers:cool:
  13. Re: Guess how many members by Dec 25th! lol... this time next year there will be a million!!
  14. Re: South American Young Talents hi dexter, good to see you are still around! my sao paulo in wc1 is starting to blossom thanks to your picks from years ago.
  15. World football stunned Gabriel MILITO stuns world football by moving to KooTeePee. The 93-rated superstar was greeted by what may well have been the entire populous of Finland at the Arto Tolsa Areena. Milito told the press "Benfica is going nowhere. This club has huge dreams and I am here to make them come true" KooTeePee, who were recently promoted after a number of years struggling to make the cut in the bottom division, have been linked with another world class defender who could be on his way shortly.
  16. Re: Gold Championship 1 News Started managing America De Cali about 6 months ago... Spent hours and hours wrangling and looking for backdoors to good players (recently unmanaged clubs, players about to rise, players who werent getting 1st team action etc)... went from a starting11 average rating of 82/3 to 86/7. Then I left last week to take up the job at Toulouse which was an offer I couldn't refuse... I look back at the team now and it is absolutely decimated!!! I shouldn't have bought 22 youth players because in a few days time they'll have an average rating of about 75!!! HOW DEPRESSING:mad:
  17. Re: HAGGIS INVITATIONAL NEWS KOOTEEPEE look set for automatic promotion after an astonishing few seasons which have seen the club break its chains to the bottom of the table and skyrocket up the ladder. Thanks to some shrewd wheeling and dealing, the club which has virtually no income due to having no fans, has seen its players change from local factory workers and schoolboys to internationally renowned stars. The average rating of the starting 11 is now 90 and it proved too much for division 3 to handle this season! Reading this thread over, it seems stupid that you all ditched the set up because setup owners did not have enough control... the upgrades were introduced a few months later and yet the setup was left for dead by you lot!!!! I will keep playing with myself...
  18. Re: World Champ 1 well done logan! it's back to school for my brazilian boys... good luck!
  19. Re: World Champ 1 oh okay, fair enough...
  20. Re: World Champ 1 sao paulo 3-3 auxerre celtic 0-0 juventus auxerre played 3 22yr olds from senior squad including hattrick hero Kazim. is this allowed? i have lots of good 22yr olds who havent been played:confused:
  21. Re: World Champ 1 In a Folha de Sao Paulo interview today, Sao Paulo manager Rarther embraced media speculation linking Chelsea's unhappy Scherer MAXWELL with his club, saying "He is welcome back home at Morumbi. The LB position has been our achilles heal for what seems like an eternity, so Maxwell would be guaranteed first team football here and would be worshipped by 80,000 screaming brazilians week in, week out." "We agreed a good deal for MAXWELL when he was a 90-rated fringe player at Chelsea, but they pulled out when his rating increased. We increased our offer significantly, but it was ignored by the club, so we have been waiting for MARCELO to grow into the role instead..."
  22. Re: World Champ 1 Sorry logan, didn't read the forums for a while but alvin pm'd me to remind me... i have challenged you now. Good luck!
  23. Re: World Champ 1 Yes, santos challenged me after i asked on here weds night, but i couldn't get internet access for a couple of days so didn't accept it. I think a rematch is fair because he left it to the last minute and it is my first offense, and if he still wants 3 points then let's not forget his man-keeper in the first fixture! lol;) Looking forward to the San-Sao on the 22nd:D
  24. Re: World Champ 1 yes it has gone right off the rails lately:eek: it's a shame there's no way to set your youth squad default for friendlies n book all the friendlies in advance. i played chelsea in div 1 on sat with a youth team, oops!!! can santos challenge me for friday? thanks
