English Championship 106 - Discussion Thread

Re: English Championship 106 - Discussion Thread

Wow. I'm sitting here trying to fathom how I managed to gain promotion without setting tactics since about the middle of the season. I guess I'm just that good. :o:p

Anyway, I think I'll quit all my gold teams and re-take an active role at Palace with the day-to-day running and hopefully build on last season's surprise success!

I'm willing to do deals for most of my players (excludes Thiago & probably Rami).

So feel free to throw in bids and PMs etc.

PS - Sorry for ignoring any bids etc. during my in-activity from the game for the past couple of months. :)

Re: English Championship 106 - Discussion Thread No problem. Now for my two cents. Conceit occurs when a person feels they are superior to most others. I like to see conceit as a large head, with a

Favourites Germany have been drawn Sweden, Peru and Trinidad and Tobago, while Wales first ever World Cup Finals match will be against Paraguay.

Ukraine are drawn with Saudi Arabia, Netherlands and Scotland in Group B of the SMFA World Cup Finals. Don't think I'll top the group but finishing as group runners up is a legitimate goal to have.

Having said that, Ukraine went undefeated in qualifying and we topped our group which also featured Brazil, beating them 4-3 away and then holding them to a 1-1 draw in the penultimate game. So it's not impossible for us to pull off a shock win against the more fancied Netherlands.

It's my first World Cup here in 106 as I never bothered too much with internationals. Really going to put the effort in and try and do as well as possible with Ukraine.

Have sorted my squad selection out too. 19 of my squad are from English teams although most are only squad players at best. Some of them played more internationals then club games this season but they've performed for me at the highest level so I'm giving them a chance.

Preston are going to be playing a full-strength side tonight against Man City in the first of three pre-season friendlies. The main point of tonights game will be to see if playing Martin Kelly out of position has a huge effect on the teams performance.

He's on the bench. Carragher, Cole, Barry, Modric and Jovetic are in the starting XI.

Also, away from SM, it looks like goal-line technology is going to be at least another year away, and the fifth official will be put in place for Euro 2012 :(

Sorry Dudeskin can't agree that my 4 - 0 victory was very even. We had 50% more possesion, more shots and more shots on target. You didn't have any attacking alternative formation, which is why we could sink back and defend after 60 minutes when we were already 4 - 0 up. After that point we just defended and you didn't really attack , which made it kind of easy.

As for Zak, I can assure you that we will be almost 100% in terms of fitness which should make it an even game as you have the slightly better squad, especially your goalie . I reckon you will win, but it depends on how much fitness counts.

Id argue that it was quite even, looking at the stats. Possession always seems to win games on SM which was ultimately the deciding factor. Also, the possession bar can only show an average across the entire match, the swing in possession towards yourself probably came after you changed to 4-5-1, and although you had more shots and more SOT, both teams were eqally as accurate, it just came down to Friedel being better than Ruffier.

Good luck in the final, just noticed you have a pre-season friendly against Bradford who are also in a play-off final, if you can beat them, then whats to say you cant finish near the top of Division Two?

Im growing increasingly worried that Sheffield United's chairman wont allow Lukaku to leave on loan again as he's now 2nd choice Cf behind Berbatov. So to beat the rush of loan bids for the new season, will anyone have an 87 or 88 rated CF available for loan.

You can loan Julian Schieber if he joins Charlton.
