Re: The Intercourse, General Banter Thread.
Quite funny that you think my post is me taking the game too seriously? Correct me if I'm wrong but aren't you the one that just used three posts to comment on my one post?
Your captain expressed his opinion regarding our match. I expressed my opinion regarding his comment on you getting "robbed". That's a forum's function. I read a post that I disagreed with' date=' so I replied. Just as you did when you read my post. How is that taking the game too seriously?
If you take a glance at what I wrote you will notice that I mentioned a discrepancy between counter and slow/short not counter and defensive.
In my opinion playing slow tempo and "soak up and hit on the break" don't mix. If you are of a different opinion, I'm fine with that.
I understand what you are trying to say, but it's what I would call deductive reasoning. Your conclusion is only valid if the premises are true and I haven't read anything in the rules or help section to suggest that they are. Unless you know something about the game engine that no one else does?
Yeah, I'm going to point to the result of the game.
To be honest I never meant to make your choice of formation look like a joke! I used my observations to argue that the result wasn't "robbery" like Arfon claimed. That's all. I was never personal.
In my experience 4-2-3-1 works wonders against 3-5-2. Again, if you are of a different opinion, I'm fine with that.
Yes, I played very defensive, counter, direct passing, tight marking, men behind ball and so on. I'm not sure what your point is here. I never wrote that defensive and counter attacking isn't a fine choice. I wrote:
Well' date=' I have obviously bought players that work with the formations I use!? Who doesn't?
My league position has nothing to do with 4-2-3-1 as I varied between several tactics all season. Feel free to check. My league position is probably due to me playing in the Champions Cup, going all the way in the Intercourse Cup and simply that D1 has gotten better compared to last season.
Exactly! The game was a must win for me and I won. I'm really not bothered that you think I did a poor job regarding everything else. Last time I checked the scoreline is what counts.
Yeah' date=' I doubt that playing 3-5-2 all season, even with my team, will win you any trophies in a competitive setup like this. Also, you seem to think that my team is the best team in the league. Obviously that's not the situation as both Lazio and Racing are way stronger (and several other teams on par with Mechelen).
I just love these kinds of statements. "If I had your team I would be the best bla bla bla". I'm glad that you have confidence in your managerial skills. Bring it on. Let's see what you've got. You took over a team the Bibi built from scratch, got promoted and almost won the cup with. What’s stopping you from reaching for the stars? Please amaze us with your talent.
Well, let's view the facts shall we? I built my team completely from the ground. I've managed the team from day 1. No one but me can take credit for anything in relation to the team. I've won:
- The D2 playoffs (season 1)
- D1 (season 3)
- Runners up in the SMFA Shield (season 3, not that it matters in this setup, but the cash is nice)
- Runners up in the Charity Shield (Season 4)
- The Intercourse Cup (Season 4)
I find it kind of conceited that you are questioning my managerial skills when you yourself haven't shown the game world anything yet.
Let's get your facts straight. Your captain used the stats to prove a point, not me. I actually pointed out that stats shouldn't hold too much weight, just like you are doing now.
