Re: English Championship 7046 Discussion Thread

Thanks Sop' date=' unlucky bud!

As Sop said, Tottenham beat Manchester United 2-1 in the Champions League final thanks to goals from Ba and Gerrard. The win means I lift my first European trophy in this setup....in fact it's my first European trophy in any setup haha. Very happy :D[/quote']

Congrats on the trophy sunshine.

Re: English Championship 7046 Discussion Thread

Still looking to shift Fabiano. Cash would most likely do. If not then one other player and a bit of cash would be lovely. Or just two players. Anything really.

90 rated CF and will keep his rating for at least another 5 months, if not more.

Ive just seen your MR which was excellent by the way , A real real treat to read :)

But I noticed one tiny piece of information I had to laugh at , You scrimping on bargin buys while classing my fulham as having fancy players :P

My fulham has fancy players but I just didnt like the comparision to your bargin buys when you have the lights of aguero in the side :P

Never read so much rubbish on the forum :P

Cheers. In fairness though all my money did go on Casillas and Xavi in season 1, forcing me to rely on old timers and find risers. In Season 2 it then all went on Gomez, again forcing me to scrimp and save elsewhere. I guess I was just lucky that Studge was desperate for a CF allowing me to swap Gomez for Aguero :D

Other than that the rest have come from relying on picking up cheap high-rated players (the likes of Conca, Reveillere, and Cisse) while working hard with risers to finally build up the youth prospects (it's only in recent seasons we've been able to pick up the likes of Dede, Rouz, Alvarez, Bargfrede, etc.).

Outside of those few big stars many of my top-rated lads are on their way down. I'll be desperate for a Gattuso replacement pretty soon :o

Yeah' date=' good report Jooles, nice to read. However, this sentence is slightly misleading :D[/quote']

Gotta disagree with you there Pred, it's Xavi that pulls the strings at Barca not Messi ;)

Well you cannot really complain about buying high rated players as the bargins have been there , Koscelny who will rise to 90 soon brought for 8 million , Benatia 5.1 million etc so you thats down to you being too lazy! :D

The offer for Pinheiro KLEBER of Fulham from Hull City has been accepted. The transfer will be completed within the next 24 hours.

Stuart Downing + Carl jenkinson + Dennis dirkmier for Mabo Maiga and Pinheiro kleber :)

So in the last few days

Bojan in for Maiga

Took a long time to get a deal done with no fault to either me or racky but it was very nice to get downing in especally :)

Very pleased with my work in the last few days :)

Re: English Championship 7046 Discussion Thread

Got a bid accepted on the young midfielder Vadis Odjijda. The 23 year old playing for Bruge is doing well this year, rose in November and should rise to 88 when they are reviewed again.

He's been eyed up by a few big clubs in the past, so hopefully he'll get his move soon and prove himself in a bigger league.

Another younger face in the team anyways. Is always good to have around :P

Oh yeah, I'd forgotten all about the Koscelny 'guilt' transfer after Snooki took your beloved Arsenal ;)

And too lazy? Trust me, there's not a lot left after splashing 32.4M cash on a player, not that you'll ever know that B)

Jooles your match report was a good read but looked like it was scripted by a News Of the World reporter.

And thanks, err I think! :)

It wasnt a guilt transfer , I negotated the price down as he thought kos was rubbish I did try buy ramsey but he wasnt having it so thats that :P

Your right the most cash Ive spent was 14.2 million on valencia but ive spent it all round the squad and not filled my squad with oaps ;)

You might have a better top end but my time and patience will pay off ;)

Its all about sustained success which is qualifying for europe for every season at the moment. I know I would rather have munian , sahin and kos then conca , gattuso and carragher :rolleyes::P Most of your youth aint brillant either :D

Yes successful for now but there declining and its going to be tough for you to overhaul your squad :P

Well he asked for 14 million for kos and I managed to knock him down to 8 million and a 5 season loan deal for aaron ramsey which he has kept to his credit :) I never once said he was a smart dealer haha

Yeah fair enough, you've got me there. Your 4 seasons of failure in Europe (in the SMFA Shield) is way more sustained success than Div 2 champs and Cup runners-up, title challengers, Cup winners and Shield runners-up, and then Div 1 Champs :(

Yes successful for now but there declining and its going to be tough for you to overhaul your squad :P

True' date=' though there's probably more currency in Augero than all of your players put together :P

My first full season with Liverpool and I plan to shake up the top placings :)

What's that Dan, a record breaking 3rd place Liverpool finish? :D

Top 4 would do me ,I might have got there this season as I missed the last 5 or 6 games and the assistant only won 1 of them,I plan on being around for the whole of this season though :)

My record is no bad won 8/ drew 5/ lost 4 hopefully now that I have brought in the new lads it will roll much better.

Re: English Championship 7046 Discussion Thread

Just been shopping down External Street and delighted to come back with a few bargains.

Ralf FAHRMANN has completed his move to Walsall from Schalke for £72,000 plus Liborio SANCHEZ and Punch MASENAMELA
Volkan SEN has completed his move to Walsall from Trabzonspor for £102,000 plus Dárvin CHAVEZ and Carvalho CRYSTIAN
Youssouf MULUMBU has completed his move to Walsall from Cagliari for £564,000 plus Aleksandr SAPETA and Joel POHJANPALO
Julián VELAZQUEZ has completed his move to Walsall from Independiente in a swap deal for Israel JIMENEZ

Thought I'd get a lot of competition for this lad, you guys know something I don't??

Bobby ZAMORA has completed his move to Walsall from Olympiacos in a swap deal for Fernando ARISTIGUIETA and Lukas PAUSCHEK

Pleased to bring in Bobby, got some good young talented strikers at the club with Dost, Baba, Pekhart and Zohore so Bobby can come in now and do a job until they're ready for 1st team action

The offer for Tomáš PEKHART of Nuremberg from Walsall has been accepted. The transfer will be completed within the next 24 hours.

May be allowed to leave on loan for the season due to him being 5th choice

The offer for Diego POLENTA of FC Porto from Walsall has been accepted. The transfer will be completed within the next 24 hours.

That's 7 quality deals for little Walsall and hopefully there will be 1 or 2 more additions before the new season as well

some really nice signings there Tony, especially Velasquez.

Nice young team with some crackin youth prospects and with Dembele and Zamora upfront you should be banging them in in Div 3.

Mauro Zarate joins up with his old boss Malone as the clubs 3rd choice starting striker.

Problems in the dressing room Dan? That's some camel's toe Zarate's got. You sure Liverpool did a full medical? I'd be asking questions if I were you :o
