  1. Re: The 2014 Christmas & New Year Scouting Thread

    Yeah thanks for pointing that out to me' date=' I didn't look at Castilla appearances. But even in that case, I think 82 is a ridiculous rating, especially considering Castilla are in Segunda Division B, and the rating cap for that division is an 80. Very generous in my opinion.[/quote']

    Even though he made me a small bit of money I agree it was too high; I think his single Champions League goal got him the extra 2 points even though this is Ludogorets we are talking about.

  3. Re: How to counter 3-4-1-2

    Spookily I also own a Man City side (94 rated with Messi, Aguero, Kompany, Chiellini, Alves, Martinez and Draxler) and until recently always played 3-4-1-2, but have just changed formation as I always lose to title rivals West Ham playing 4-2-4 with their 92 rated team. It's pretty much the only games I would lose each season so I would give 4-2-4 a go, I've now changed to this formation myself.

  4. Re: Constant Blocking of transfers by SMFA

    I just got mugged off big time by the great 'Automated Transfer Monitoring System'. I swapped my Pepe (93) for Sunderland's Chiellini (94) with the agreement that I would sell him Casillas (95) for CV and get Buffon (94) in return. Everyone will have their personal favourite but all in all a 95 and a 93 for two 94s seems fair to me.

    So he's got Pepe and Casillas, I have Chiellini and put in a bid for Buffon and guess what, SMFA's Einstein ATMS blocks the deal! Just to rub salt in the wound my next game by coincidence is against Sunderland, all of my players score 7 or higher apart from my former reserve now first-choice goalkeeper who gets a 5 and I lose 4-1! Blooming fantanstic, you just can't make this stuff up!

    I tried every kind of deal possible but transfers between our two teams are now blocked and there aren't any other decent keepers available in the set-up. And this is a system to make transfers fair? Have sent a ticket but apparently this isn't a bug and the ATMS never blocks transfers without a reason so they're not going to do anything about it.

  5. Re: Newspaper Ban

    Wouldn't go around calling it a 'silly' ban. Obviously at the time you had done something to deserve it so it's your own fault really. If sending tickets doesn't get you anywhere I would PM Ste on here. Make sure you show him in it that you're mature though' date=' don't put any "..." etc. I guess having the same name as him helps![/quote']

    What's immature about using "..."? He was just inviting comments!

  6. Re: Best future world class full backs?

    i like to buy players who prove themselves in the top leagues as many players hyped on this forum turn out to be nothing much.

    That's my point' date=' it's obviously not ideal to judge a player based on World Cup football alone, but that's all there is to judge Otamendi on because he hasn't proved himself in a big league i.e. the only games in his career so far where he has had to step up a level, he's been terrible. And yet people are still calling him a future [b']World Class[/b] fullback.

  7. Re: Best future world class full backs?

    Hmmm' date=' I'd rather judge on a full season and [b']transfer prospects[/b] than 5 games but each to their own :) Basing your entire opinion on some of the lesser players entirely on the World Cup is ridiculous though IMO.

    Before the World Cup:



    After the World Cup:



  8. Re: Best future world class full backs?

    Indeed' date=' Rooney will be playing conference football with Torres next season, such were their performances. Messi is being stripped of his La Liga goals as it's clear they were netted by an imposter as the man himself didn't score at all at the World Cup. Di Maria's value has plummeted too. Despite his massive move to Real Madrid his hopeless World Cup performances have made him next to worthless. Also, don't buy any French or Italian players as it's obvious to anyone who watched their 6 games that they're all pathetic.

    This, my friend, is sarcasm. Don't judge an excellent young defender on a few games. Otamendi should get a big move to Europe over the summer and his rating will shoot up. Great acquisition.[/quote']

    Yes, senseless sarcasm. All of the players you've mentioned have proved themselves in the top-flight apart from Otamendi who's had one good season for Velez Sarsfield. So you're either judging him on this one good season or the fact that he's good on Football Manager, whereas I would rather judge a so-called 'excellent' prospect on top level performances, of which all so far have been terrible.

    Granted Otamendi has a lot of time to move to a big club and turn in some top performances, but until that time I would refrain from calling him a future World-Class fullback. Maradona taking him to the World Cup rather than Zanetti is an insult to football.

  9. Re: Best future world class full backs?

    what about players like de silvestri and insua

    di sivestri is first team fiornetina so certain for a rise as far as i know

    waht is the story with insua' date=' he plays poor, but thats probably liverpools fault,

    i own both players and trying to decide whether to keep them or sell in order to fund a move for chiellini?

    (if i sell insua, it makes the deal very easy, otherwise i have to sell a few prospects, like merida, hinez, chrisantius, and mame diouf)

    similar story with de silvestri, is he impressing?[/quote']

    Ignoring your nice bit of thread hijacking, you should definitely sell Insua (88) and/or De Silvestri (87) to get Chiellini (94).

  10. Re: Car insurance

    Not unless he pulls a sicky at work or waits until he has a day off by which time the car will be vandalised or the MOT checks will be past due. Have you checked your mum hasn't got Driving Other Cars cover on her current insurance?

  11. Re: Please help!!!!!

    Hello mate, I would probably go for Villalba (80), Thiago Alcantara (80) and Rodriguez (85).

    I don't feel next season will be a break-through season for the first two, but both appear to be v talented and therefore good long-term buys. Rodriguez has just moved to Porto so could rise towards 90 if he shines there a la Di Maria at Benfica.

    With Lanzafame (86) I'd wait a few weeks until it's confirmed where he is next season. Apparently it's just been agreed he'll be at Juve next season, but they may decide to loan him out elsewhere. Macheda (80) is obviously at United but not sure he'll have much playing time with him, Rooney, Berba, Owen and new signing Hernandez all fighting for a spot. I'd consider Ganso (86) too due to his talent but him and Defederico (85) need to move from Brazil for a high rating. Pasquato (82) hasn't been up to much of note recently so I'd leave him for now.

    Hope my opinions help ;).

  12. Re: De Gea for Pedro?

    If you do have a look on the Real Life Clubs screen check they haven't bid for any other available free/external/unmanaged Atletico players first though as they seem to make multiple bids at any one time in my set-up (in which case problem solved).

  13. Re: De Gea for Pedro?

    Assuming you don't have any other Atletico Madrid players you can transfer list and sell, you could check out Game World -> Real Life Clubs -> Spain -> Atletico Madrid and find a free agent to sign, then wait 2 months, transfer list him and sell him to Atletico instead. You'd have to be blooming patient, but otherwise I wouldn't really sell De Gea for a chance at Pedro unless I had someone like Hugo Lloris or Neuer in my squad and no wingers.

  14. Re: NMF

    Where did you get that from?

    Also' date=' I have noticed against unmanaged teams, the other teams NMF don't matter too much, and I usually disregard it when it's the opposition.[/quote']

    10 factorial. Anyway, I agree NMF needs to be looked at. Perhaps they should change it to 'Tired' but have the players recoup fitness quicker after a match as most real-life managers do play their core first team players in league & cup games throughout the whole season (i.e. they're not all Wengers). They should then bring in a NMF for players that haven't played in the last four or five games as in not match-fit in terms of match sharpness, not condition wise.

    Finally, where it would help in your cup final, they should then drop the player match rating for someone with either of these conditions by 1 rating point which seems to be the system for yellow cards. And yes, I know this is how Football Manager do things, but clearly their system is just better. Just my current thoughts however, I'd be happy to hear better ideas.

  15. Re: Di Maria has signed for Real Madrid

    I think he'll do well at Real Madrid, especially/obviously with Mourinho at the helm. The thing that's impressed me at the World Cup is his willingness to help out in the defence and be a real team player unlike, for example, a Nani or Quaresma, and let Messi, Higuain and Tevez steal the limelight. Then when he does find himself in possession his touches are nearly always quality, a sort of less is more (a concept Real Madrid desperately need to adhere to!)
