  1. Re: English Championship 106 - Discussion Thread Couldn't get online to change my starting 11 back from the Youth Cup, so I lost 2-1 Really needed the win too, to keep Bradford's playoff dreams alive; stupid bloomin' internet... EDIT: I'm also withdrawing from the Youth Cup, purely because my internet connection is very unreliable so changing tactics can be hard, and cost me points. I never really stood a chance in the Cup anyway but still, sorry to have to withdraw.
  2. Re: EC Anno Domini - General Discussion, Banter etc Really sorry to do this but I've decided to quit this setup, it just doesn't have the fun factor as my other teams do; and I've just lost all interest in managing Coventry. I'm just going to stick with my Bradford City and Fluminense teams. Sorry lads
  3. Re: English Championship 106 - Discussion Thread Despite having an average rating of 77, I still managed to beat a full strength Rochdale side in the Youth Cup game tonight, winning 3-2, although the score line won't matter as he breached the tournament rules. Another person that has forgot, it's really not gone to plan this year EDIT: Rochdale also had 25 shots to my 6!
  4. Re: English Championship 106 - Discussion Thread Backed out from a big bucks deal to sign Pedro Leon at the last minute, and snapped up Marchionni for £6m instead; glad the transfer business was so swift, and good luck to you at United KopStar; also, well done to Zakkoo
  5. Re: English Championship 106 - Under-23 Youth Cup (Season 12/13) I'm guessing Dave forgot about the youth cup game as he fielded his strongest side against my youth team; his team included the likes of Young, Janot, Biagianti, Debuchy, etc.. Obviously I lost, but only 5-2 which is good considering my average rating was 76! This years Youth Cup hasn't exactly gone to plan, has it?
  6. Re: English Championship 106 - Discussion Thread Drew 1-1 with Stoke, who seem to be on form recently; climbing out of the relegation with some impressive results. Gutted that David Dunn will miss most of the rest of the season due to injury, having scored 25 goals and got 12 assists in just 30 games this season from CM! Crystal Palace up next in the league, really need to win that game to be level on points with the 2nd place side; hoping Villa will do me a favour and beat Sunderland in the next game too Very close to tying up a deal for a certain 89 rated winger, just sorting out the formalities; a big coup for Bradford. EDIT: Expecting to get mauled tonight in the Youth Cup against Hull, with my youth team averaging a rating of just 76!!!
  7. Re: EC Anno Domini - General Discussion, Banter etc Haha indeed, if we both keep on conceding like that then it'll be a very long season Already in financial trouble, losing around £250k a match, so I'll be shipping out whoever I can; Sean, you still want Clarke?
  8. Re: English Championship 106 - Discussion Thread Lost 3-1 to Jooles' Middlesbrough, remain in 4th place though as the teams around me slipped up too, 4 points off Crystal Palace in 2nd place though
  9. Re: English Championship 106 - Discussion Thread But Dave, there's still hope of me coming back from 7-0 down to beat you! ;D EDIT: Just noticed the whole ineligible thing, so technically I'm winning? I got thumped, don't really deserve to go through or even lead 1-0...
  10. Re: EC Anno Domini - General Discussion, Banter etc Beat Hartlepool in the race to sign Luuk De Jong from FC Twente, should rise to 87/88 next time round; having a good season so far. Won 2-0 against Jinxy's Doncaster Rovers, even if it was basically his second string team The big kick off starts on Sunday against Wolves who have, incidentally, agreed to loan me a CM for the season (not sure who yet, mysterious ). Can't wait for the big start!
  11. Re: English Championship 106 - Discussion Thread Sorry mate, I should've been more specific; I meant I'm looking for an 87+ winger to buy, I already have the maximum amount of loans You interested in selling?
  12. Re: English Championship 106 - Discussion Thread Bradford crush Coventry City 5-0 despite getting one of their 3 defenders sent off early in the game, and only having 11 shots! Up to fourth place now, 1 point off second place Crystal Palace; quite proud at how the season has panned out so far Still looking for an 87+ winger...
  13. Re: English Championship 106 - Under-23 Youth Cup (Season 12/13) Youth team line-up for tonights game against Hull is sorted, with an amazing average rating of.. wait for it..... 77! I expect a swift exit, just don't batter me too badly Dave!
  14. Re: EC Anno Domini - General Discussion, Banter etc 89? Ouch. Not looking forward to playing you now! Managed to up mine to 88, with atleast 3 more players coming in soon. Don't suppose I could loan either Ebanks-Blake or Vleminckx off you? I wouldn't use them in our match, ofcourse.
  15. Re: English Championship 106 - Discussion Thread Signed Chilean midfielder Gary Medel from Doncaster for £8.2m which, I believe, is a new club record transfer. Pretty happy with the deal, as he's just about to complete his move to Sevilla in real life; plus, he's a great player, just the type of defensive midfielder I need. Trying to bring a new winger in, so if anyone is selling an 87+ then I have around £16m to spend; seeing as I missed out on McGeady
  16. Re: EC Anno Domini - General Discussion, Banter etc 3 more transfers to go through and then Coventry are done in the transfer market (bar any loans). Quite chuffed that I signed Muniain, Shaqiri and Kovacic with no competition! Coventry are in dire need of loans, so please if anyone has any 84+ rated CB's, CM's or ATT players that they don't particularly need then PM/VM me; it'd be very much appreciated
  17. Re: English Championship 106 - Under-23 Youth Cup (Season 12/13) My internet has been down, so sorry! Sent
  18. Re: EC Anno Domini - General Discussion, Banter etc I'm pretty sure they are, think James mentioned something about a friendly tonight, so I'm guessing there are. Fancy a friendly?
  19. Re: EC Anno Domini - General Discussion, Banter etc Well, there was me thinking the transfers I'd gotten were pretty good for Coventry; then I saw Leicester and Reading's starting 11.... Still, hoping to prove that ratings don't matter, as I have in Div 2 in 106 so far; bring on the challenge! Anyone want a friendly?
  20. Re: English Championship 106 - Discussion Thread Absolutely hammered Birmingham in terms of stats, but Bradford had to come back from behind twice against the ten man team to draw 2-2. Bradford now sit in 5th place, below Crewe on G/D.
  21. Re: English Championship 106 - Discussion Thread Right, remember when we were looking at new ideas to make the setup more active once again? How about old ideas? Found this very old post from Pipgib: Would it be possible to start up once more? Might be a tad difficult and time consuming though.. Wouldn't necessarily make the setup loads more active but the bragging rights that come from being first, or the jokes about who's last, could liven things up a bit I feel.
