Riferimento: Re: Official Gold Championships Discussions Thread

I'm genuinely shocked at how many teams are available when searching' date=' e.g. Bayern, Dortmund, Liverpool, City. Few years ago people would be up at 5am when the job offers are released for them.

Whats this adverts on match reports? Does ad block not even cancel it out?

Also, as for the gold membership, I'm going to give it a month I think. See if I can pick up/build a team worth getting the years membership for[/quote']

people used to wake up at 5am because the GC was not so numerous like today, simply for this reason. And if you look better you can see that the Bayern, Dortmund, liverpool etc. are teams in game world that are in the 10th or 13th season, so the team has not even a player like in the beginning, so these teams are not the best choiches in these leagues.

Intact team or not - you could of had a very poor Chelsea team back in the day but they would still get taken over.

I'm going to keep an eye out anyway for any decent teams that come available.

GC13: Roma complete a domestic treble (League, Shield and Cup, SMFA Super Cup too) after a 5-2 win over a strong Palermo side. Iniesta grabbing a hattrick, with Robben and MOTM Schweinsteiger scoring too.

That's 13 league titles on the trot. Curious to see if anyone else done more in a row.

Re: Official Gold Championships Discussions Thread

Taken charge of Real Madrid in GC172. Safe to say the squad has been turned upside down, no Ronaldo, Xabi Alonso, Pepe etc, Casillas and Arbeloa the only survivors :o

Looking to sell Falcao, Ashley Cole and others, looking to make my mark on the squad quickly so let me know in game if anyone is in this setup and is looking to do deals.

Leeds turn it around; get promotion

Season Recap – Leeds United – GCC 342

Season 1

Championship (England 2)

7. Burnley 71

(…)

24. Bournemouth 38

Cup: Lost in Round 1 to Aston Villa (0-1)

Shield: Lost in Round 2 to Barnsley (1-2)

SMFA: N/A

Most valued players:

9.7 Fabian Schar

7.1 Olcay Sahan

6.7 Antonio Luna

Top scorers:

15 – Jacques Zoua (7th in Championship)

10 – Ross McCormack

9 - Neilton

Top set-up men:

13 – Ross McCormack (2nd in Championship)

7.92 – Jacques Zoua (8th in Championship)

7.78 – Dominic Poleon (11th in Championship)

7.60 – Neilton (21st in Championship)

After losing 5 of their first 8 games this season, Leeds United were able to turn it around and become a serious contender in the Championship this season. A few shrewd signings helped change things around, notably 87 rated free agent Olcay Sahan for 4.2 million (I still don’t know how he was a free agent). Leeds weren’t able to get very far in the cup competitions, and that’s still not the objective next season. Next season, all the focus will be on staying up in the Premiership. The squad’s not all that advanced yet, hopefully we’ll be able to add a few shrewd signings before too long into the next term.

Projected Starting XI:

83 Lopes

84 Johansson – 87 Schar – 86 Darmian – 85 D’Ambrosio

85 Ward-Prowse – 87 Sahan – 85 Jorginho – 86 Luna

85 Johannsson – 84 Rodri

Top set-up men:

7.71 – Stefan Mitrovic (No longer with club) (21st in League Two)

7.67 – Luis Cavanda (23rd in League Two)

One can get an idea of the level of dominance shown this season by the average performance (to 13 all Gateshead or former Gateshead players or by the massive goal differential shown. The statistical season shown by Morgan Sanson was simply out of this world, 21 goals and 21 assists in just 15 games before being sold for a massive profit and bought again at the end of the season once the transfer ban ran out. We seriously believe this team can compete immediately for a League One title; anything less is a disappointment. It would also be nice to see at least one cup run.

Projected Starting XI:

82 Mandanda

85 Cavanda – 82 Mbemba – 83 Poundjé

83 Mayke – 83 Biyogo Poko – 86 Davies

82 Promes – 86 Lica

87 Josue

80 Vinicius Araujo

25-man roster:

1 Parfait Mandanda – Sporting Charleroi

2 Mayke – Cruzeiro

Re: Official Gold Championships Discussions Thread

For anyone in the following GC's, I'm selling these players, looking for part exchange:

GC172 - Real Madrid: Falcao, Casillas, Ashley Cole, Fernandinho, Willian, Arbeloa, Turan & more all available to leave.

GC230 - PSG: Ibrahimovic, Thiago Silva, Lavezzi all for sale, took charge today, in need of cash so if you offer a big sum of cash as well as a replacement for the players positions I may accept.

Comeback championship season for FC Porto

Season Recap – FC Portoo (GC 341)

Season 1

Primeira Liga (Portugal 1)

Last season: N/A

Table:

1. FC PORTO 70

--

2. Benfica 69

--

3. Sporting Braga 53

4. Vitoria Setubal 53

(…)

16. Olhanense 19

Cup: Lost in Semi-Final to Academica (1-2)

Shield: Lost in Round 2 to Penafiel (1-3)

SMFA Cup: Eliminated in group stages

Group I:

1. Malaga 12

2. Independiente 10

3. PORTO 8

4. Guarani 4

Most valued players:

16 – Carlos Tevez

11.8 – Nigel de Jong

11.5 – Eliaquim Mangala

Top scorers:

15 – Jackson Martinez (2nd in Primeira)

10 – Lucho Gonzalez (7th in Primeira)

8 – Carlos Tevez (15th in Primeira)

8 – Silvestre Varela (19th in Primeira)

Top set-up men:

14 – Jackson Martinez (2nd in Primeira)

11 – Silvestre Varela (4th in Primeira)

7 – Lucho Gonzalez (15th in Primeira)

6 – Maicon (24th in Primeira)

Top performers (6 games min) :

9.12 – Carlos Tevez (2nd in Primeira)

8.75 – Jackson Martinez (4th in Primeira)

8.33 – Silvestre Varela (7th in Primeira)

8.31 – Djalma (No longer with club) (8th in Primeira)

8.08 – Nigel de Jong (13th in Primeira)

8.05 – Lucho Gonzalez (14th in Primeira)

7.92 – Eliaquim Mangala (18th in Primeira)

7.86 – Ricardo Rodriguez (19th in Primeira)

7.77 – Fernando (21st in Primeira)

7.70 – Nicolas Otamendi (23rd in Primeira)

With quite a bit of work to do (about 15 points behind Benfica halfway through the season), Porto was going to need to be close to perfect to end the year. So they went on a signing spree adding Stephan Lichtsteiner, Carlos Tevez and Nigel de Jong to an already strong squad. The move payed off and Porto gain 43 out of a possible 45 points in the last 15 games of the season. It was a well-deserved title. Next season, there are a few objectives: 1. Get a goalkeeper. 2. Win at least 1 new trophy (cup or shield). And try to keep the title from Benfica (it’s quite the rivalry. Benfica have Mata, Alexis Sanchez, De Bruyne, Dzagoev and C. Eriksen, to name a few. Together, we have the top 23 performers in the league)

Projected Starting XI:

89 Helten

91 Lichtsteiner – 89 Otamendi – 89 Mangala – 89 Alex Sandro

90 Fernando – 91 de Jong – 89 Rodriguez

90 Lucho Gonzalez

93 Tevez – 90 Jackson Martinez

25-man roster:

1 Helton - Porto

2 Stephan Lichtsteiner – Juventus – Switzerland

3 Alex Sandro – Porto – Brazil

4 Ricardo Rodriguez – Wolfsburg – Switzerland

5 Nigel de Jong – Milan – Netherlands

6 Steven Defour – Porto – Belgium

7 Silvestre Varela – Porto – Portugal

8 Lucho Gonzalez - Porto

9 Jackson Martinez – Porto – Colombia

10 Fernando - Porto

11 Carlos Tevez – Juventus

12 Ricardo Pereira - Porto

13 Danilo - Porto

14 Maicon - Porto

15 Nicolas Otamendi – Porto – Argentina

16 Josue - Porto

17 Lica - Porto

18 Martin Braithwaite - Toulouse

19 Diego Reyes – Porto – Mexico

20 Eliaquim Mangala - Porto

21 Fabian Delph – Aston Villa

22 Pajtim Kasami - Fulham

23 Danilo D’Ambrosio - Torino

24 Artur Yusupov – Dynamo Moskva

25 Lukasz Skorupski - Roma

Re: Official Gold Championships Discussions Thread

So what is the crack with pre-ordering/reserving a club in a GC for £15?

Do you get to pick what GC you want your team in? Or does it just say for example you have reserved Juventus in GC394 or something similar and could you change it for say GC395?

Can anybody clarify please?

Cheers

It'll say something like you have reserved Juventus and are number xx in the queue. You don't get a say in what GC you have the club in.

Re: Official Gold Championships Discussions Thread

Man, i love my Dortmund side in GC 280.

I got it last year when they still had Gotze.

I now have a starting XI of Ter Stegen, Piszczek, Subotic, Hummels, Schmelzer, S.Bender, Gundogan, Gotze, Kuba, Reus and Lewandowski.

On the bench i have the likes of Kehl, Draxler, Howedes, Rode, Herrmann, Rausch and Leitner.

Then i have youth like Goretzka, Bittencourt, Cigerci, Horn, Meyer, Hofmann, Durm, Stark, Sule, Tah, Gunter and more.

It's just such a fun team to play with!

There's plenty of teams available in 280 if anyone fancies joining me.

Re: Official Gold Championships Discussions Thread

Afraid to say, as I expected, gold championships just aren't the same anymore. I currently have 3 sides (in gold champs), on a 1 month gold membership and it isn't looking likely I will renew. As well as it being hard to deal, the ignorant managers really don't help that are spread across the setups, even seen a guy trying to sell his account on one of the news feeds the other day:o

I will wait it out until my gold status officially runs out, but if I'm honest paying the extra £12 per year wont benefit me as I'm having more fun in EC106 and with my Bayern in a Euro Championship, the Roma I have acquired in GC86 itself tempts me to just renew because its such a great squad with great youth but even there it is hard to find a deal that suits both managers.

Guess times change, good to see some of the old faces still around though :)
