  1. Re: EC Anno Domini - General Discussion, Banter etc Thanks Sean! Good match. Gary's Ipswich up next. Nice looking team as well.
  2. Re: EC Anno Domini - General Discussion, Banter etc Good luck tonight, Fitzy. May the best team win.
  3. Re: English Championship 5579 - Discussion Thread BOOM! Shrews win 3-1 against Millwall. Menez with a brace and Hoarau with his 10th league goal. Shrewsbury are tied 4th with Cardiff, two points behind 1st. Some interesting matches coming up - Watford, D&R, Man U.
  4. Re: EC Anno Domini - General Discussion, Banter etc I was actually planning to sign both after my TBs were up. But great signings there!
  5. Re: English Championship 5579 - Discussion Thread Shrews grab a narrow 2-1 win against Coventry. Hoarau and Cannavaro with the goals. Hoarau takes his tally to nine league goals this season.
  6. Re: EC Anno Domini - General Discussion, Banter etc Doncaster draw 2-2 against at home to Charlton. I was hoping for the full three points, but I'll settle for one. Fernandez and Hoarau with the goals. I have Millwall in the last game of the season. A draw will keep me in the playoff zone.
  7. Re: EC Anno Domini - General Discussion, Banter etc Doncaster Rovers grab a narrow 1-0 win against Sheffield W. The three points shoot Doncaster into 4th place and playoff land. Two games to go.
  8. Re: The Intercourse, General Banter Thread. The season's more or less over. Congratulations to Jenks. Really nice track record, dude! I'm following shack and quitting some of my less favorite teams due to RL commitments. Mechelen are unfortunately in that category. Mechelen are back where they started four seasons ago, division 2. Sadly I couldn't keep them on top. They're a great team on paper, so who ever takes over should have an attractive basis to start from. Thanks for a couple of enjoyable seasons.
  9. Re: English Championship 5579 - Discussion Thread Reto Ziegler (88) is leaving Shrewsbury unless someone wants to beat a bid of 6.3 million.
  10. Re: The Intercourse, General Banter Thread. Admin, please take note: Team "Asian Invasion" use their power play for the upcoming games. Thanks.
  11. Re: English Championship 5579 - Discussion Thread Following losses against Swansea and Petersborough the Shrews bounce back with a resounding 8-2 victory against Dudeskin's Cardiff. We play Huddersfield in the cup and then Andy's new look Hartlepool. Probably no more than two goals.
  12. Re: EC Anno Domini - General Discussion, Banter etc The likes of Kalou, Gignac, Remy and so on were too good. It was a good run though.
  13. Re: English Championship 5579 - Discussion Thread Quite the activity in regards to Mauricio Isla. Who got the highest bid? My bid was just over 20 million.
  14. 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. Agreed. 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.
  15. Re: English Championship 5579 - Discussion Thread BOOM! 3-0 against a much improved QPR. Cannavaro, Bodmer and Gargano with the goals. That should land Shrewsbury in the playoffs. SJ's Swansea up next - a tough match that can go both ways.
  16. Re: English Championship 5579 - Discussion Thread Haha, nice one, mate. I think Bibi may have it in the bag. My bid is only worth 9,4 million.
  17. Re: The Intercourse, General Banter Thread. Must win game for me as well' date=' so we'll see. Tell me about it. Champions last season, relegated this season?
  18. Re: EC Anno Domini - General Discussion, Banter etc Thank you' date=' guys. Even thinking Europe might be a tad bit overly confident, Lenny. You too, Ryan. Hopefully, we'll have an upset on our hands.
  19. Re: EC Anno Domini - General Discussion, Banter etc Division 3 side Doncaster Rovers book their ticket to the EC Anno Domini Cup Final! After knocking out Arsenal in the quarters and Everton in the semis we're up against Fulham. Seeing as Doncaster aren't going to win D3 this season, a cup triumph would definitely ease the pain. Realistically though, the team probably doesn't have another cup victory against a D1 team in them. In other news Noboa, Jallet, Fernando, Medel, Campagnaro and Plasil join the Vikings. More players to come.
  20. Re: The Intercourse, General Banter Thread. Mechelen make their way to the Intercourse Cup Final. We're up against a strong Racing, so nothing is guaranteed. Keep your fingers crossed teammates.
  21. Re: English Championship 5579 - Discussion Thread Shrewsbury are up to 5th in the league with a 3-2 victory away to Wolves. Hoarau and Jonas with the goals. Middlesbrough up next.
  22. Re: English Championship 5579 - Discussion Thread Following a 2-0 loss to Hull, Shrewsbury pick up the slack with a 3-0 victory against Newcastle. Hattrick by Hoarau!
