Re: The Basement Version II - The Returning.

Aston Villa

Kupest's squad is an interesting mix of potential' date=' wasted talent, and experience that should lead them clear of relegation. Players like Aly Cissokho, and Darren Bent look to rebuild their reputation while new additions Claudio Bravo and Spanish attacker Artiz Aduriz look to impress the Villa faithful. Additionally, youngsters Andres Weimann, Antonio Luna, and Nathan Baker look to make the next step forward.

Key Man - Carlos Sanchez

E382B5E383B3E38381E382A7E382B9E382B3E383ADE383B3E38393E382A2E38080.jpg?d=a1

Carlos Sanchez, recently joined Aston Villa for 4.7million from Elche and the manager will hope that he can be the link between an average defence and a strong front pairing from of Aritz Aduriz and Christian Benteke. Sanchez is experienced, and plays for the Colombian national team. Joe Cole, Fabian Delph, and Karim el Ahmadi lack quality so that is why Sanchez is Villa's key man.

Strengths and Weaknesses

Strengths - Depth

There are many players in this squad, albeit second-tier ones.

Combination of Youth and Experience

Many veteran players in this squad compliment the youth ambition in Andreas Weimann and other players.

1-2 Offense Pairing

Aritz Aduriz and Christian Benteke are a deadly forward pairing capable of many goals.

Weaknesses - Quality

Many of these players lack the quality to play internationally.

Midfield

Carlos Sanchez is the only decent midfielder.

Prediction - Mid-table midgets

(high - 3rd / low - 7th)

Make one for me Allan!:):P

Re: The Basement Version II - The Returning.

I'm going to B & Q first thing in the morning and buying 10 sledgehammers to equip my players with!!! Lets see how that double decker bus 'fares' after they've driven it into the ground for 90 minutes!! :P:p:p

:D

Being an Irishman I believe that a petrol bomb is the best course of action to take against a bus mate :eek::D

Re: The Basement Version II - The Returning.

FC Basel

Dimitris' squad is one that will be fighting against the odds this season with a weak squad with no quality, quantity or depth. The manager will surely have to fight in the transfer market to get all his signings, as every addition will be needed to contribute to their predicted battle against relegation.

Key Man - Rodrigo Lima

ngD7E97253664545009F43CA8AEC03D01C.jpg

It is amazing how boring and lackluster the Basel offense is, so Rodrigo Lima will take all the responsibility when it comes to scoring goals. Signing from Benfica for a cheap 5.2 million transfer fee, he will be able to contribute a lot to this weak offense. His productivity can be maximized with another attacker benefiting him, preferably a Brazilian one for increased chemistry.

Strengths and Weaknesses

Strengths - The Surprise Factor

The side will surely be underestimated and this may lead to many upsets by this side.

Lots of Youth Talent

Basel is a proven academy for youngsters and it is sure that many will develop throughout the season and challenge for a first-team spot.

Weaknesses - Reliance of Key Players

Christian Maggio will be relied upon for defensive abilities, while Rodrigo Lima will be the only one supplying the goals, and Tomas Rosicky is the only midfield rock.

Lack of Depth

If one key player is injured, then it will be a huge blow to this Basel side, who will have to replace that player with a much more weaker player.

No Quality

Who in this squad could make the reserves of any of Basel's opposition?

Experimental Tactics

Perhaps the worst tactic in the world that this manager has employed is by making a big gap in the middle of midfield, sacrificing them so they can work on the wings. Possibly the easiest thing to manipulate in this whole world.

Prediction

Relegation fighters

(high - 6th / low - 8th)

Most likely finish: 8th - relegation

Division 2 - Turn 1

[MOVE]Featured Match | Featured Match | Featured Match[/MOVE]

Boca Juniors VS Ajax

championsleague.jpg?1408688695

The featured match of this turn has no reason in particular behind it, first game of the season is when we get a first look on each team, Boca vs Ajax seemed to be the most balanced match of Div.2. On the paper Ajax has the upper hand, but the Blue and Gold's fearless supports can intimidate any team that steps in at La Bombonera.

Olympiacos VS Metalist

Olympiacos has a big potential in Div.2, the team will definitely be looking for a fight for the title, on the first game they will face Metalist, who despite being a weak side cannot be underestimated.. they have a respected manager that will be looking to use his players at their maximum potential.

__________________________________________________

1001.pngphoto.jpg1898.png

Hoffenheim VS Celtic

TSG 1899 Hoffenheim are said to be the favourites for the title of Div.2, and they will start the season against the underdogs Celtic, they couldn't ask for better opponent for the first game, lets see how they correspond to that favouritism, but again it is the first game of the season so anything can happen.

Sampdoria VS São Paulo

Not much to say about this match at this point,

Sampdoria still unmanaged but yet has more club value than São Paulo, so it will be interesting to see the outcome of this match, we will just gonna have to wait and see!

Division 3 Turn 1

Featured Match

images?q=tbn:ANd9GcT9ek97urnjeTQnsWkAaJqybuE7rssCJpxsitJWGFom4fEwF36EYwimages?q=tbn:ANd9GcR2JDk9-tpqcaWSAaHxI7putkDJNVZyph9WzwxukGkhbsP7fKKZYgdGygimages?q=tbn:ANd9GcTcYQ6sby-u-_KQ9P5PAAI0zvIk1OoJ1DnjDUCR-kurTh-NU8oWxw

Lille OSC-Sporting de Braga

These two teams face off in the season opener in what should be one of the most evenly matched games of Division 3. pedrooliveira's Sporting de Braga will have a choice of 11 from 63 to start the match but new signings Marchetti and Alex Costa should definitely trouble Lille's attackers. On the other hand, muallan's Lille also made 3 defensive signings (Vorm, Mathieu, Joao Pereira) On paper, Lille are favorites, but with pedrooliveira's tactical skills, anything can happen.

Prediction: Lille 2-0 Braga

San Lorenzo-Sunderland

Argentinian top club San Lorenzo are touted as relegation favourites, but will they prove critics wrong? They went for attackers in the transfer market signing Rodrigo Palacio and Miguel Danny. Sunderland, meanwhile have signed Mathieu Flamini and already have some top players such as Giacherinni. Sunderland are definite favorites in this game, but the away fixture could prove too tough for them. Look for a game full of goals.

Prediction: San Lorenzo 3-3 Sunderland

Sevilla-Genoa CFC

Sevilla are favorites to win the division in pre-season polls, and they will face a somewhat hard test against Genoa. Sevilla do have the highest club value, whereas Genoa are 4th in that ranking. With 6 players rated 90 at Sevilla, and strikers such as Berbatov also in the lineup, expect a Sevilla win, though it won't come easy after Genoa have also strengthened their team by signing Clint Dempsey, Alessandro Matri, and Sebastian Kehl. Genoa's performance will solely be based on how well goalkeeper Mattia Perin plays.

Prediction: Sevilla 3-2 Genoa CFC

Feyenoord-Fenerbahce SK

Dutch team Feyenoord face off against Fenerbahce in a game where Fenerbahce's club value is over 70 million higher than Feyenoord's. Feyenoord did sign Tim Howard after a top World Cup performance and also signed Roman Shirokov. Fenerbahce signed Spaniard Andoni Iraola and Brazilian Goncalves Jonas. Fenerbahce overall have a much better squad, a top manager, and should get an easy win.

Prediction: Feyenoord 0-4 Fenerbahce SK

Sunderland coach ready to go

0,,10281~7295985,00.jpg

Sunderland have this morning announced their first capture of the season.

"We’re very pleased Mathieu Flamini has agreed to re-join us," new coach Sunnyskeg said. "He is a player of real quality, with a fantastic work rate and great mentality. As we know, Mathieu is a strong midfielder, but is also is comfortable playing in defence too. He is a very good addition to our squad."

Transfer deals have been hard to finalise over the last few days with all the rush, but i am satisfied with the squad now and do not expect anymore players to arrive.

Division 1 Turn 1

Sunday 24 Aug 2014

Stadium : Gerland

Newcastle start their season against Lyon in a match which could be decisive in the title race . Manager Matthew Webb took no time in bolstering the attack and signed ADEBAYOR, Emmanuel and PANDEV, Goran while also strengthening the defence with DEMICHELIS, Martin . Lyon boss Patrik Olsson on the other hand has not signed a single players and expressed his satisfaction over his current players . " I want to give them a chance to prove themselves first " he told the reporters.

The match would be close between these similar rated sides and could go either way.

NM's prediction : 1-1

Star Man : Adebayor

Interesting Facts : •Lyon's Total and average squad values are higher than Newcastle's even after having 8 men less.

• People have bet 100(edit - 110) coins more on united to win the league than on lyon becoming the champions

Sunday 24 Aug 2014

Stadium : Türk Telekom Arena

Turkish giants Galatasaray host Kazan on Sunday to start their campaign. Manager True Blue decided to strengthen the squad at the back and signed experienced defenders JAGIELKA, Phil and BALZARETTI, Federico . Michael Hudson has also took steps to strengthen the weak spots by recruiting VUCINIĆ, Mirko and FUEGO, Javi.

With high rated players like SNEIJDER, Wesley and MELO, Felipe on their sides gala fans expet an easy victory for their team. Kazan fans would be happy to get a draw against such a strong opposition.

NM's Prediction : 3-1

Star Man : Sneijder

Sunday 24 Aug

Stadium : 2014 Mineirão

Real visit Brazil serie a side Cruzerio in their first div 1 fixture. After selling their star player to Atletico for big money manager Ashley Holtom has been cautious in the market and has signed experienced PYATOV, Andriy for 7.1 M. Cruzerio manager PWND has also brought in ENYEAMA, Vincent , LEDESMA, Cristian and marquee Lord Fred.

There is not much difference between these teams squad value and starting xi wise but ash's experience could be crucial in giving Sociedad a good start.

NM's Prediction : 2-1

Star man : Vela

Sunday 24 Aug 2014

Stadium : St. Jakob-Park

Swiss giants Basel host EPL club Villa on their home ground. Manager Dimitris Diamantidis has already signed 4 players, the highest in the league till now. Getting ROSICKÝ, Tomáš LIMA, Rodrigo was a good move . Villa manager Kartavya patel has spent big on BRAVO, Claudio while also bringing in ADÚRIZ, Aritz.

Both the teams are quite similar in ratings and have experienced managers. With the home advantage and the attacking signings FCB might win in a very close match.

NM's Prediction : 3-2

Star man : Rosicky

PS - Don't take predictions too seriously ;)
