  1. Re: English Championship 7046 Discussion Thread Well, I'll take it, although we've really undone all our hardwork with back to back losses down the stretch. Every game from here on out is a must-win; we're dangerously close (goal difference!) to falling right back into the playoff spots and ending the season just like we did last time.
  2. Re: English Championship 7046 Discussion Thread IBD's no joke; sorry to hear about that but good to see you doing something positive to benefit the cause. Let me know if I can be of help.
  3. Re: English Championship 7046 Discussion Thread Well Bury managed to do the double over us. Probably will go on to win the league; shame as they'd gotten 2/9 going into this game. Have to focus on not slipping back into 3rd-6th now; would be a real shame to have to fight it out in the playoffs for a second season in a row.
  4. Re: English Championship 7046 Discussion Thread We've had our highs, finishing 3rd & 4th in Division 1 in our early days. But with the club 27.4 million in the red (and that's after my sale of Bruno Alves for 9.1 million), we're lucky we're not simply in mid table obscurity, given the inability to reinvest in the squad. Speaking of mid-table obscurity though, good to see Boro back in the title race after three seasons of 9th, 10th & 11th. Think you were locked into the relegation race yourself before you won 9/10. Hopefully I won't falter in the final weeks and will be back to comp
  5. Re: English Championship 7046 Discussion Thread Good to see nothing has changed in my absence from the thread. Dom and Jooles still going at it, same storyline, same results This season has been another rollercoaster at Forest. We started on fire through the end of September; 9W-2D-3L. But as a 2nd division manager I took the bait and tried to go for glory in the cup/shield, and it bit me in the butt; we got knocked out in Round 3 in both competitions, and went 2W-2D-6L in our next 10 matches. Now we're on our classic stretch run; last season we took 32 from 36 points but fizzled out after
  6. Re: English Championship 7046 Discussion Thread Since I fully expect Aston Villa to bring our run to an end, just wanted to congratulate the boys on their incredible performance in our 8 win streak. We've scored an impressive 28 goals in our last eight matches, with our old men Dirk Kuyt, Dimitar Berbatov & Ryan Giggs leading the way. Iniesta has been the maestro behind the scenes, posting the highest AvP rating after Villa's Kiessling, and even Payet has contributed as of late (3 goals in last 2 matches). Iniesta's suspension likely means a definite loss vs Villa, but hopefully after th
  7. Re: English Championship 7046 Discussion Thread saw that, good to get that recognition hopefully it doesn't go to his head and he keeps performing at the same level.
  8. Re: English Championship 7046 Discussion Thread Find me a player in 7046 playing better than Iniesta right now. (Trick question: You can't. Iniesta's 8.5 rating through six matches is the best on SM.)
  9. Re: English Championship 7046 Discussion Thread Just added Bautheac, Balde & Naughton to the loan list, feel free to put a bid for any of them. Coincidentally, they are all available for transfer as well. Thorgan Hazard & Mohamed El Nenny, for you talent hunters/riser watchers out there, are also available for loan, and will not be recalled if/when they rise. We're back in Division 2, but we've been here twice before (S1 & S4 I believe) and gotten out at the first try, so I expect we'll do the same. Last season was one of those season were no tactics worked for us, but hopeful
  10. Re: English Championship 7046 Discussion Thread #20 beats #1...there truly are no easy matchups in 7046 eh? Still a long way to get out of relegation zone, but only 9 points between us and 11th with 18 games to go... Bautheac, Piti, Salah, Balde all still available for loan for those smaller clubs in need of big attackers...
  11. Re: English Championship 7046 Discussion Thread Since this post I've won 4 of my last 5, 3 league wins & a cup win. Thanks for the positive jinx I suppose SMH haha. As always, looking to offload a number of players, and would be extra happy if the deals to offload them involved 2 for 1 deals or good youngsters. Dimitar Berbatov (will be sold to external for 7.5 if no higher bid received) Bryan Ruiz Ibrahima Balde Eric Bautheac (Dom...) Francisco Piti The last three are also available on loan. My lack of posting this season has had to do with the abysmal, unexplainable form of my
  12. Re: English Championship 7046 Discussion Thread Even though I still have a big chunk of debt to deal with, decided to sell Jadson for 9 mil to Sao Paolo. He was only worth 4.6 mil to the club after his drop, and I've got Afellay and Payet ahead of him in the pecking order. Forest thanks Jadson for his four seasons of service to the club. Open to the idea of selling Francisco Piti, Aluisio Moraes, Valere Germain and Bryan Ruiz for cash, or in bigger deals with a cash component. Ibrahima Balde & Eric Bautheac will also be available when they return from loan.
  13. Re: English Championship 7046 Discussion Thread 4th win on the bounce as Forest decide to troll their manager after a fairly terrible season. Where was this all season long you ask? Who knows, who knows... We'll be starting another season w/o Europe next season, meaning I should finish next season with somewhere between 35-40 million in debt. wooo
  14. Re: English Championship 7046 Discussion Thread @Will: I would probably do a deal for Moutinho involving Musa + Naughton/Schafer. Unfortunately I'm 18 million in debt. Almost hilariously, Forest record a season-record third-consecutive league victory to assure safety in the Premier League for another season (Hudders take on Bury in the final match of the season, so it isn't possible for both to win and leapfrog me on the final day). Hardly been involved this season, and probably would've quit at the end of this season if it weren't for the fact that I've been here since the start. Like Arse
  15. Re: English Championship 7046 Discussion Thread Pleased to announce the arrival of Timm Klose & Dmitri Payet for Arda Turan. Thought it might not go through since I'm still in debt, but I guess that just prevents you from making offers, not accepting them. Turan was a great player for Forest for five-and-a-half seasons, particularly lighting up Division 2 in season 4, but with Payet & Klose we get two very talented players who will provide good depth in their positions as well. Match Report to follow soon.
  16. Re: English Championship 7046 Discussion Thread Thank god...went out on a limb to try some new defensive tactics vs league leaders Tottenham, and they paid off with Kuyt bagging a brace before half-time. Only the third win of the season. Hopefully more to come and fewer draws.
  17. Re: English Championship 7046 Discussion Thread A lot of my lower rated guys got wage increases, but overall I think only 50-70k was added onto the already exorbitant wage bill we pay per matchday at Forest. NEED a win today. Expecting a loss tho.
  18. Re: English Championship 7046 Discussion Thread As always, thank god for cups. Another game where I dominate possession but can't score.
  19. Re: English Championship 7046 Discussion Thread Another day another draw. 2-5-2. My friendlies always go just according to plan, the games always end in disappointment. At least I know that I don't have to worry about draws in the cups; maybe that's where I'll have success this season.
  20. Re: English Championship 7046 Discussion Thread Raz, there isn't any jealousy, you need to calm down a bit. Jooles is naturally cheeky, no point in getting worked up over every post he makes that references you... I think everyone has acknowledged you are very good in the transfer market, maybe a tad overactive, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. My money's also on Machine staying with his team, especially judging by his post.
