Fiorentina 6-0 Udinese


A rout of Udinese meant that the Viola hold their place at the top of the table. Juventus lost and dropped to third but Internazionale managed to win and now lay 3 points behind Fiorentina in second.

Santi Cazorla and Rosina gave the Viola a 2-0 lead at half time. The in the second half, Fiorentina produces an amazing 15 minutes of football where they scored 4 goals. Gilardino struck twice in 8 minutes to make it 4-0. Then Santi scored his second as he made is 5-0. Tziolis scored shortly afterwards to complete the rout at the Artemio Franchi. It was a great win for Fiorentina and with the league so tight thus far, it gives them a vital boost in goal difference.

Manager - J.Hodgson

Stadium - Giants Stadium (80,242), New Jersey

In season 1 New York finished runners up in the North American League. So when the season finished the team looked to re group spend some money and come back stronger to challenge for the title. They have done exactly this, they are currently 1st level on points with Colorado rapids but have the better goal difference.

Whilst being at the top of the table, New York have finished runners up in the charity shield and won the North American Cup.

North American Cup Final



It was an intense victory for New York


A.DIABY 23, 46, 88

V.OBINNA 33, 69








Since the cup final New York have splashed out on 5 new players and Hodgson had this to say on them " We have recently made some good signings that will help us get through the rest of this season and allows us to compete more affluently next season"



Roger - 5 million pounds


Gravgaard - 10 millions pounds


Charisteas - 5.6 million pounds


Mathieu - 9 million pounds


Ricardo Lopez - 1 million pound

Hodgson's signings at the start of the season have been top buys because of their value for money, and he has built a squad that looks impressive and they have now purchased the above five players to give the sqaud more bulk and class.


New York so far this season have played 18 games, winning 11, drawing 2 and losing 5.

What does the rest of the season have in store for the New York Red Bulls, can they go on and win the title doing the double.

We know that they are already looking towards next season, will more players come into the club and what can they achieve next year, we will just have to wait and see.

Palermo V Inter (15th April)


With one game to go until the big game of the season, it will be interesting to see who they approach their games and if they rest star players. With Inter and Palermo two of the most inform teams at the moment it will be very interesting to watch. Palermo have been a revelation under new boss Tom Field from being in the bottom 10 with few points to competing for Europe. Tom Field has a current First Division record of:

9 Wins,

2 Draws,

2 Loses.

The game between Palermo and Inter is being billed as a 50/50 game with two inform teams meeting the San Siro to battle it out.

Re: Gold Championship 22 Match Report / Transfers Thread

Both Palermo and Inter impressed today in their matches ahead of the eagerly anticipated game at the San Siro. Both clubs didnt rest star players however so they may be suffering from fatigue in their next match.

Tom Field (Palermo Manager) did add after the game that he had rested star defender Andrea Barzagli to make sure he was in best condition for the Inter game.

When asked whether he would be attacking or defending against the strong Inter team Tom replied cheekily by saying "your have to wait and see".

Re: Gold Championship 22 Match Report / Transfers Thread

The question remains... Can Guadalajara repeat the double of last year, where they won the Division 1 title and Mexican Cup? The former giving them entry this season to the prestigious SMFA Champions Cup, which will be the main focus this season, casting doubts over whether the squad is strong enough to be a major force in the league like last season, where Guadalajara ran rampage losing just two games, including two fine wins over previous league champions Club America. On top of this Mexican striker, Sergio Santana won the Golden Boot with 16 goals in 32 appearances, and also claimed the most assists with 18 in 32 appearances.


Golden Boot - Santana

Transfer News

The only new signing this season for Guadalajara is the talented 21 year old centre back Julio Cesar Dominguez. He came in for a hefty £11m from rivals Cruz Azul but he will be one of the three, first choice centre backs. However, a left back is badly needed because of the severe lack of depth in that position at the present time. Meanwhile, on the selling front Jose Antonio Olvera is available for £3m and youngster Jesus Padilla is available for loan.


New Signing - Dominguez


The strongest formation for this season is a 3-5-2, with the line up looking like this - Michel (88), Magallon (90), Dominguez (88), Reynoso (88), Pineda (89), Medina (88), Araujo (88), Castillo (87), Morales (89), Tchite (88) and Santana (88).

With Guadalajara's strength in depth though, a completely different system and line up (goalkeeper not included) can and will be used for cup matches and Division 1 matches where the first XI are being rested. This comes in the form of a 3-2-2-2-1, with the line up looking like this - Michel (88), Mendoza (87), Danilo (87), Korkmaz (87), Mejia (87), Kladrubsky (86), Solis (87), Martinez (86), Lobos (87), Avila (86) and Andres Mendoza (87).

To show the strength in depth all of the following players are still available in case of injuries or suspensions - Salcedo (86), Baez (86), Ninis (86), Oluwafemi (86), Diogo (85), Dos Santos (85), Arellano (86) and Bernberg (86). Attention all managers, these players are available to loan as long as they are not covering problems within my own squad.


Matchday 1 - 5th June 2009 - Charity Shield Final vs Pachuca

With Guadalajara at full strength, they were clear favourites for the first piece of silverware of the season.

Attendance - 84,782

Stadium - Wembley

Referee - Stephane Lannoy flags_of_France.gif

Pachuca Line Up (4-4-2) - Calero (7), Aguilar (6), Kadlec (6), Samba (7), Perez (5), Alvarez (6), Rodriguez (6), Caballero (7), Lovenkrands (5), Christian (6), Montes (5)

Guadalajara Line Up (3-5-2) - Michel (7), Magallon (7), Reynoso (7), Dominguez (6), Pineda (6), Castillo (5), Medina (6) , Araujo (9), Santana (9), Tchite (9), Morales (6)

6th Minute - GOAL - Pachuca striker Correa Christian manages to meet an invited cross with a bullet header leaving Luis Michel stranded in the Guadalajara goal.

24th Minute - CHANCE - Pachuca winger Luis Montes grazes the top of the bar with a super header. Was unmarked, so he will be dissapointed he didn't score.

26th Minute - GOAL - Mohammed Tchite grabs the equaliser for Guadalajara in rather fortunate circumstances, as his miss-hit shot somehow beats Miguel Calero. What a blunder, drop your head in shame, disgrace.

27th Minute - CHANCE - The post is left rattling as Ramon Morales of Guadalajara beats the keeper when one on one but also beats the goal.

39th Minute - GOAL - A moment of pure class from talented youngster Patricio Araujo of Guadalajara, as he cuts in from the left and unleashes a venemous strike which flies into the Pachuca goal from 25 yards out.

HT - 1-2

67th Minute - BOOKING - Pachuca's Peter Lovenkrands takes a dive, and what a beauty it was, if that was gymnastics he'd be the world champion. Oh, look at this... Bruno Grandi the President of the International Gymnastics Federation is walking onto the pitch and gives Lovenkrands a gold medal for his artistic work on the pitch.

79th Minute - BOOKING - Ramon Morales is the second player to be booked, after a poorly timed tackle. Despite the ball being at the other end of the pitch, Morales decided to scissor kick Pachuca right back Paul Nicolas Aguilar for fun.

84th Minute - GOAL - Last season's top goalscorer, Sergio Santana opens his account with a simple tap in, following a goalmouth scramble. Surely game over now for Pachuca.

FT - 1-3

Possession- Pachuca 35% - 65% Guadalajara

Total Shots - Pachuca 11 - 21 Guadalajara

Shots On Target - Pachuca 2 - 15 Guadalajara

Corners - Pachuca 10 - 8 Guadalajara

Injuries - Alberto Medina of Guadalajara - Shin Splints (6 Days)

Manager's Comment - "Great result for us, especially as there is a trophy at the end of it. I was pleased with Dominguez on his debut, he dealt with the pressure well".


Ouch Shin Splints - Medina

Matchday 2 - 6th June 2009 - League Match vs Toluca (H)

Toluca were favourites coming into the opening match of the league season as Guadalajara were fielding their second team because of SMFA commitments the following day.

Attendance - 31,058

Stadium - Jalisco

Referee - Jacek Granat flags_of_Poland.gif

Guadalajara Line Up - (3-2-2-2-1) - Michel (6), Mendoza (6), Korkmaz (6), Danilo (6), Mejia (6), Kladrubsky (6), Ninis (6), Martinez (6), Andres Mendoza (7), Lobos (7), Avila (6)

Toluca Line Up - (4-5-1 A) - Cristante (7), Lopez (7), Mareque (7), Da Silva (7), Duenas (7), Yebda (9), Ponce (6), Busquets (8), Nene (7), Zinha (8), Gimenez (8)

11th Minute - CHANCE - The opening moment of the match falls to Guadalajara's Oswaldo Martinez, who sees his shot cleared off the line. Unlucky.

15th Minute - GOAL - A bit of genious from Toluca's French midfield maestro Hassan Yebda, as he cuts inside and unleashes a shot which flies past Luis Michel in the Guadalajara goal. The stadium has gone silent.

35th Minute - GOAL - Toluca go two goals up after Miguel Nene rounds the goalkeeper and finishes it, into the empty net. Supurb composure by the Brazilian there.

HT - 0-2

47th Minute - BOOKING - Guadalajara's Jiri Kladrubsky thought he could get away with an uppercut on the Toluca player there. Mike Tyson would be proud of that one.

55th Minute - CHANCE - Another chance goes begging for Guadalajara as Sergio Avila can only hit the post when clean through on goal. On the replay you can see Toluca goalkeeper Hernan Cristante wetting his pants when left with a one on one situation with Avila. Fortunately the post saved his clean sheet, his underwear is far from clean though.

64th Minute - CHANCE - Guadalajara hit the woodwork for a second time, with playmaker Lucas Lobos rattling the crossbar from 25 yards.

71st Minute - CHANCE - Zinha of Toluca makes a brave diving header at the near post, only to see his header come back off the post and out of play. He's at his magical best today.

81st Minute - GOAL - After hitting the woodwork 10 minutes ago, Toluca attacking midfielder Zinha grabs his well desrved goal. A supurb pull back accross goal found its way to Zinha, who finished with great aplomb. Game, set and match to Toluca surely.

FT - 0-3

Possession - Guadalajara 39% - 61% Toluca

Total Shots - Guadalajara 17 - 9 Toluca

Shots On Target - Guadalajara 6 - 6 Toluca

Corners - Guadalajara 7 - 9 Toluca

Yellow Cards - Guadalajara 1 - 0 Toluca

Red Cards - None

MOM - Hassan Yebda of Toluca

Manager's Comment - "All of the credit must go to Toluca for playing extremely well throughout the entire 90 minutes. They kept the ball better than us, took their chances and defended well to. We played okay, but I feel there is a lot more in the tank. We were missing Solis today as well which didn't help us, but thats no excuse for the thrashing we received at home in front of our own fans today. Refunds will be given to all supporters".


Excellent Display - Yebda

Matchday 3 - 8th June 2009 - SMFA Champs Cup Match vs Espanyol

Guadalajara are looking to pick up a point away at Espanyol in the first matchday in the SMFA Champiosn Cup Group C. With Espanyol set to field Albert Riera, Luis Garcia and Carlos Kameni amongst other supurb players, the odds are firmly in their favour.

Attendance - 21,536

Stadium - Estadi RCDE

Referee - Hernando Buitrago flags_of_Colombia.gif

Espanyol Line Up (3-5-2) - Kameni (7), Zabaleta (7), Clemente Rodriguez (7), Jarque (6), Moises (8), De La Pena (8), Valdo (8), Gomez (9), Montero (7), Luis Garcia (8), Riera (9)

Guadalajara (3-5-2) - Michel (7), Magallon (6), Reynoso (7), Dominguez (6), Pineda (6), Castillo (6), Solis (6), Araujo (7), Santana (5), Tchite (7), Morales (7)

10th Minute - GOAL - Espanyol open the scoring through Fredy Montero, as his volley finds the back of the net.

19th Minute - CHANCE - Guadalajara almost grab an equaliser through Ramon Morales, but he sees his shot cleared off the line and out to safety.

37th Minute - GOAL - Tricky left winger Albert Riera manages to glide past two Guadalajara defenders and fire an unstoppable shot past Luis Michel and put Espanyol in a commanding position. Poor defending.

38th Minute - CHANCE - It should have been game over for Guadalajara as Fredy Montero somehow misses an open goal. Memories of Ade Akinbiyi at his appalling best spring to mind.

44th Minute - BOOKING - Espanyol's Daniel Jarque slammed into the Guadalajara player there. If you look closely you can see a tooth flying through the air and landing in that guy's Coke in seat 2B.

HT - 2-0

52nd Minute - BOOKING - New Guadalajara signing Julio Cesar Dominguez picks up his first booking after a clumsy looking tackle. £11m for that, what a waste.

54th Minute - GOAL - Its game over now as Alejandro Gomez puts Espanyol three up after climbing the highest and heading the inswinging corner into the back of the net. Poor marking, you pay the price.

65th Minute - CHANCE - Albert Riera is having a field day as he sees he brilliant lob cleared off the line. He has dismantled Guadalajara today.

79th Minute - BOOKING - Donkey of the match, Sergio Santana of Guadalajara caps of his awesome display by bringing out a rocket launcher, which was classed as dangerous play by today's referee.

FT - 3-0

Possession - Espanyol 54% - 46% Guadalajara

Total Shots - Espanyol 18 - 19 Guadalajara

Shots On Target - Espanyol 6 - 7 Guadalajara

Corners - Espanyol 4 - 6 Guadalajara

Yellow Cards - Espanyol 1 - 2 Guadalajara

Red Cards - None

MOM - Albert Riera of Espanyol

Manager's Comment - "I have to say we were unlucky today, we had more shots on goal, more corners and generally looked good going forward. However, our defence has not lived up to expectations for the second match running and the midfield couldn't get hold of the ball enough when Espanyol were in profitable positions. Santana wasn't at his best today and I believe we havn't seen the best of him at SMFA level yet".


Quality On The Wing - Riera

SMFA World Cup

Yesterday, Brazil clinched their first SMFA World Cup after defeating Portugal 3-0 at the Stadio Olimpico, thanks to goals from Robinho, Kaka and Diego, in the 81st, 85th and 87th minutes respectively. It capped off a wonderful tournament for Brazil, where they kept a 100% winning record throughout. "What a supurb achievement for this team and Brazil as a country. Football is a major part of life for the majority of Brazil, so by showing Brazil are still the best country in the world it brings even more cause for optimism in the future" - Were the words from the manager.

Road To Glory

Brazil 4 (Kaka 26, Robinho 34, Ze Roberto 81, Diego 87) Bulgaria 2 (Berbatov 71, Genkov 83)

Brazil 4 (Diego 7, Kaka 17, Ronaldinho 27, Robinho 56) Ireland 1 (N Hunt 62)

Brazil 2 (Robinho 28, Ze Roberto 84) Georgia 0

Brazil 4 (Mancini 22, Diego 33, Ze Roberto 63, Robinho 76) Israel 1 (Natcho 56)

Brazil 3 (Ronaldinho 14, Diego 22, Robinho 25) Netherlands 1 (Seedorf 2)

Brazil 5 (Diego 4 and 8, Ronaldinho 42, Robinho 70 and 77) Sweden 1 (Ljungberg 55)

Brazil 3 (Robinho 81, Kaka 85, Diego 87) Portugal 0

What an incredible tournament it was for Diego and Robinho. The former scoring 7 goals in 7 matches, whilst Robinho went one better and scored 8 in 7. The defence leaked only 6 goals and kept two clean sheets, whilst the midfield was outstanding in producing the goals and providing service for lone striker Ronaldinho. Brazil picked up the MOM award in every match, with Julio Cesar, Diego and Ronaldinho managing two apiece, whilst Mancini picked up the other award.

Brazil's system worked wonders, with the system and line up kept the same for every match (3-4-2-1) - Julio Cesar, Maicon, Juan, Lucio, Juninho, Ze Roberto, Robinho, Mancini, Ronaldinho, Kaka, Diego. The results quite clearly were incredible.


Best In The World - Brazil

Brazil begin the defence of their trophy in Group 3 of the Qualifiers, alongside Morocco, Canada, Ukraine and Lithuania.

Re: Gold Championship 22 Match Report / Transfers Thread


Sunderland Update:

The Black Cats sit 5th in the table at this point in the season, 14 games in. We endured a shocking start to the season, losing the first 3 league matches, and sitting rock bottom with no points on the board, but manager Tom Goodson swapped round the tactics and brought a couple of new faces in, and viola, our of the relegation zone we climb.

Instrumental in this was the signing of Attacking Midfielder Arnold Bruggink, who came in during last season, but didn't make an impact until Goodson switched round the tactics in order for him to be able to play in his preffered position. This seemed to work wonders, as he has ravaged the best premierleague defences along with Kenwyne Jones and Djibrel Císse.

Match Report

Sunderland vs Manchester United.

Sunderland went into this game as massive underdogs, as Manchester United are flying high in the premiership under manager Fernando Tores, but their confedence seemed to be the undoing of them, as Sunderland walked away from Old Trafford laughing, with a 2-0 result against the odds on favourites to win the title.

Goals came courtesy of a thunderbolt from Kieran Richardson in the 6th minute, and Pascal Chimbonda in the 89th minute using his pace and power to dart into the box and lash home.


Two keeper's couldn't have stopped that, amazing!

English Shield Semi Final:

After the game against Tottenham Hotspur on saturday, Sunderland will face Stockport County in the Semi Final of the English Shield, and although they have no manager at present, Goodson will be taking the match very seriously.

We will be playing a full strength squad against Stockport on Monday, as we are very keen to secure some Silverware for the fans who have had to wait for so long to taste glory again, we owe them that much.


The English Shield, seen here in its previous form as the Carling Cup, will Sunderland be at Wembely to try for the prize?

More to follow soon.

Re: Gold Championship 22 Match Report / Transfers Thread

After two pathetic seasons, Club America win the Mexican league title for the 2nd time with 3 games left, after a 2-0 win over UNAM Pumas.

13 points ahead of Chivas de Guadalajara and only lost twice in the league so far, conceding just 18 goals.

Shows me that when I put the effort in and actually bother to do tactics regularly, then I can win things :o

1_1253802049.jpgArsenal 1-1 Man Utd 49_1204432433.gif


Att: 60,355

Arsenal managed by: Mark Hill

Man Utd managed by: Barry Golden

Referee: Lee Mason flags_of_England.gif

MoM: Cristiano Ronaldo


First Game, First Point

When Barry Golden took charge this week the objective was simple to say. Don’t let SOP win the league with Chelsea again. The task won’t be easy by any means. Chelsea destroyed Everton 5-1 at Stamford Bridge and look as confident as ever to try and retain the league. Dimitar Berbatov scored a hat trick for the blues as United were held by Arsenal. Not a bad result but it could have been all three points to United.

Stewart Downing was looking to open his account for the season early on for Arsenal but his shot went inches wide with Van Der Sar beaten. Carlos Tevez then broke for United but he failed to get his shot away as Mensah recovered to tackle. After a very scrappy first half with few chances for either side, Shaun Wright Phillips broke down the right and crossed for Cristiano Ronaldo to head past Almunia to send the away fans wild. Half Time: Arsenal 0-1 Manchester United.

Agbonlahor wanted to give the Arsenal fans some jubilation but his shot hit the side netting. Almunia saved from Rooney when he looked certain to give United a two goal lead. Agbonlahor turned Nemanja Vidic and his shot was well saved by Van Der Sar but the Englishman was there for the rebound and he finished into the net to equalise. Ronaldo produced a memorable save out of Almunia late on as United looked for a winner. But it was not to be and the game finished as a draw. Full Time: Arsenal 1-1 Manchester United.

Nani celebrates his second goal of the game.

Easy win for United.

Manchester United won their second game under Barry Mufc last night, this time it was their second side that had the opportunity to impress their new boss. They did it in style beating Mansfield Town 4-0 away from home. United face Sheffield Wednesday at home in the Premier League on Wednesday evening.

United’s second string side were hoping to impress the new boss and early on Darren Gibson played a through ball from the tip off and Nani raced on to net after only fourty four seconds. Pedro Leon shot inches wide for United less than the tenth minute mark as United looked to close the game off early on. Magnus Kallander nearly equalised for the home side with a snap shot from the edge of the area going inches over the crossbar. Luis Nani attempted a long range shot which nearly produced a stunning goal but for a magnificent save from Mansfield ‘keeper Oscar Cordoba. Michal Smejkal nearly equalised near the end of the half but his shot from inside the area went inches wide. Half Time: Mansfield 0-1 Manchester United.

It took all of sixteen minutes of the second half for Manchester United to kill off this match, Sanchez Pedro Leon fired a low shot past Cordoba in front of the United away fans into the bottom corner. Michael Owen looked for a goal but the Englishman shot just wide of the target. Luis Nani was rewarded for his energetic run down the left and he was in the right place at the right time to finish Pedro Leon’s low cross for 3-0. Michael Owen did get his first goal of the season late on, using his pace he tore past two defenders before placing the ball under the ‘keeper to the delight of the travelling fans. Full Time: Mansfield 0-4 Manchester United.

Man Utd celebrate the Ronaldo opener.

Ronaldo's screamer not enough!

Last night Manchester United slipped to a disappointing draw at home to Sheffield Wednesday, giving Manchester United two draws from two league games. United face a big game at home to Liverpool next in the league on Saturday and the tie will be a big one in determining what each of the two teams’ seasons will be like.

Wayne Rooney missed a glorious chance to give United the lead but his shot went somehow wide from only six yards. Cristiano Ronaldo did give United the lead however, with a stunning first time shot from outside the box which flew into the top corner. Hysen shot wide moments later for Wednesday and Vidic came close with a rare overhead kick. Wayne Rooney was not at the races in this match, the England forward blazed horribly over the bar with an open goal right in front of him. Lee Grant then saved from Rooney as he looked to get on the score sheet. Half Time: Manchester United 1-0 Sheffield Wednesday.

Paul Scholes hit a shot inches wide as United looked to see this game out. Sheffield Wednesday equalised in the 60th minute thanks to veteran goal scorer Kevin Philips who netted from six yards following a great pass from Patrick Vieira. The Wednesday fans could not believe it. United put immense pressure on the Wednesday back line as they looked for the win and Ronaldo hit a ball which flew straight across the goal mouth needing only a touch to turn it into the net. Ryan Giggs hit a shot inches wide in injury time. Full Time: Manchester United 1-1 Sheffield Wednesday.
