Russia beat Slovenia 2 - 0 in their SMFA World Cup Group F fixture

Russia beat the Slovenians but it was not enough to take us through. It ended up a very tight group though, with all 4 teams finishing up on 4 points each.

Unfortunately the damage was done in the first game with the 6-2 thrashing we got at the hands of Argentina. A goal deficit like that was always going to be difficult to overcome. My fault though as I got our tactics terribly wrong,,, but try and explain that to the Kremlin though....

Premierleague Season 10 Preview

As the season 10 of EC 7777 approach us, we take a look at the 20 teams fighting it out for the most precious title in world football, the English Premierleague.


Pip's Arsenal are the freshly crowned Premierleague Champions, and will no doubt look to retain the title again. Star players include last season's top scorer Junior Neymar, Luis Suarez and Thiago Silva. Very sound in attack, however with Silva and Lahm aging and Mignolet as a keeper, the defense could yet be asked questions.


Aston Villa:

Coming of a fresh promotion via the playoffs, it took Villa 3 seasons to get back to the top flight, but now they're here and must surely fancy themselves for a European place at least, with the solid squad Frozy has built. The star players are Diego Costa and Thibaut Courtois who complement the attack and defense respectively.



MaoaM's Blackpool have won the league in season 7, and have won the Capital One cup as well as Europa League in season 9 so are no newcomers when it comes to trophies. Star men are Andres Iniesta and Carlos Tevez, and although both in their 30's still offer plenty of talent to this side.



SMH's Bolton coming into the Premierleague as the winners of the Championship, a league that is just as hard if not harder to win over the course of 46 games. Excelling at the tactical elements of the game, he will look to Thomas Muller and Fernandinho to provide the biggest threat this season.



Will's Chelsea are the bookmakers favourite to win their first ever Premierleague despite only finishing 5th this season. The fans will demand much more now, especially with the amount of talented players at their disposal, including Arjen Robben, Sergio Busquets and Cesc Fabgregas.


Crystal Palace:

Wayne Harman's Palace are a very complete team who play as a unit without any particular standout players. Instead outsmarting managers tactically Harman has achieved a respectable 12th place in season 9. Star men are Erik Lamela and Henrik Mkhitaryan.


Adriano Borges the special one as he's known in the blue side of Liverpool after guiding Everton to the Champions league in his first season in charge. It is one of the oldest sides in the league, but on the contrary one of the most experienced, with many of the players having played together since season 1. Star players include striker Edin Dzeko and keeper Victor Valdes.


Leeds United:

Boasting the best player in the world Cristiano Ronaldo and two incredible sidekicks in Angel Di Maria and Franck Ribery, big things are expected from Leeds United, however the manager Cesasiu, has expressed many times of his poor relationship with star man Ronaldo, yet he will not sell the player for a small offer, leaving him in a paradox which has backfired this season with Ronaldo only scoring 12 goals and Leeds finishing in dissapointing 15th place.



Very similar side to Leeds United in having some of world best in Messi and Ibrahimovic, yet not being completely happy with either, trying to sell both on more than 10 occasions throughout last season, yet failing to agree a price every time. Manuel Neuer provides a wall in goal and Eden Hazard is the energising spark that ticks the team together.


Manchester City:

One of the elite teams in 7777 boasting some of the finest players in the world and without a doubt among the favourites for the title yet again. In Van Persie and Aguero City posses the best attack in the world, and Kompany alongside Chiellini will terrify any striker partnership daring to score past them.


Manchester United:

3rd place for Rick's United in season 9, with a side boasting talent all over the pitch similarly to Chelsea and Manchester City. Will try to do a little better this season and bring the third title to Old Trafford. The fans will certainly be expecting and will pin their hopes on likes of Rooney, Lewandowski and Bale.



Sala Dioufs 'Boro are a team punching well above their weight category, with a very small and ageing squad and posses the players who are more suitable to a Championship level. Sala has done remarkable job just to keep them up season after season. Jonny Evans and Tim Howard are the most recognizable players.

Newcastle United:

If Adriano Borges was the special one, Toon's Shaun Tonna is the unknown one. A man who does not talk to the media, nor makes any transfers, instead relying on a fantastic team he had built in the inception seasons. Promotion from the championship was widely recognised, and Edinson Cavani was a man on a mission scoring and assisting 28 times each in just 36 outings. Toni Kroos and Alexis Sanchez are other players to look out for.


Peterborough United:

Bookmakers make Zayd's Peterborough underwhelming favourites for the drop this season and it's easy to see why. Having only narrowly escaped relegation in season 9, it's hard to find where the 40 survival points will come from this season with most teams having superior teams on paper. However Zayd is a great tactician and may well work another miracle this season. Best players are Spanish goalkeeper Moya and striker Morata.

Plymouth Argyle:

David Crawford has established Plymouth as a mid table Premierleague club, who can beat any team on a given day and who should beat the drop and possibly even make the top 10 yet again. Salvatore Sirigu and JuanFran are the most notable players

Shorpe United:

Having miraculously beat the drop on the last day last season Riece Monro's Shorphe will yet again be up against it, especially with Bolton, Newcastle and Aston Villa coming up who are all arguably better teams. Riece will look to Claudio Marchisio and Mathieu Valbuena to beat defences and earn them wins this season.

Sheffield United:

One of the managers of the season, Gonzodan combined a very promising youthful side with his managerial expertise to push Pip so close to the title, eventually finishing second which is still outstanding. Can the lighting strike twice? Or strike even stronger next season? Mario Gotze, and Diego Godin will try to point the lighting to the right direction again this season.


Sheffield Wednesday:

Another team that will likely be pressed against the ropes this season and will be happy to avoid the drop. The star players are Luis Nani and Dusan Tadic, so plenty of assisting in store if they could invest into a capable centre forward, which at the moment is the missing link in the side.

Tottenham Hotspur:

Jack's Spurs will be a dark horse having won the league 2 seasons ago and coming 6th last season. Sergio Ramos, Gonzalo Higuain, and Arturo Vidal are the best players in the team, however Vidal has been on the transfer block for a while and is unlikely to be in Jack's team next season.


West Bromwich Albion:

It seems like ages now that WBA were crowned 7777's first ever Premierleague winners, much to everyone's surprise and their fans delight. Just as they were then, they are now just as capable of doing so again with John Henry in charge who has reunited the Bender twins over the summer and they will be key players to WBA's second title charge.

Re: English Championship 7777 - Discussion Thread

This season your Chairman expects you to avoid relegation.

Good to see that my Chairman hasn't been carried away by last season's achievement of finishing in the play-offs.

Our club is pretty well grounded and our aspirations next season are to simply keep up in Division 2. I am sure the fans will be hoping for a little more but realistically a mid-table finish would be more than respectable.

We are not looking at making many, if any, changes to the squad during the close season. We have made one or two enquiries about a couple of players I am interested in but it doesn't look like anything will come to fruition.

Good luck to everyone for the forthcoming season.

Re: English Championship 7777 - Discussion Thread

Another one of last seasons play-off team's chairman who is quite content with just staying in the league...obviously thought it was a fluke



Thomas Vermaelen is the star buy in the 'EVERYONE MUST GO APART FROM MANE SALE' at Carlisle so get yourself down to Carlisle so you don't miss a bargain of a lifetime.

Sorry, was just too tempting:o

7777 End Of Season Awards!!!

So season nine has come to an end and its been another great season for the setup. The managers of the setup have been nominating for there managers of the season, players and young players of the season too. I think 17 was the final amount who voted. Not everyone voted in every category, so some will have less/more votes than others.

The Division 1 manager of the season goes to Pip! (Arsenal).

Pip has built a fantastic young squad over the past few seasons, and this season they came together and dominated the league and won with an eight point gap. They were top for the whole season and only lost eight times. They played the most exciting football and found the back of the net more than any other Premiership side (87). Some dissapointing results in the Cup and Shield (Out in Round 1 and Round 3), but they were very strong in Europe and reached the Europa League final, only to lose at the final hurdle. It was an excellent season for Pip, and the future for Arsenal looks very good and will be hard to take his crown away next season for the rest of the pack.

Votes. Arsenal (8), Sheffield United (4), Blackpool (2), Peterborough (1).

The Division 1 player of the season goes to Neymar! (Arsenal)


Neymar looks like he has finally matured under Pips guidance, and his goals were a major factor in Arsenals title win. He scored 28 league goals, aswell as contributing 19 assists and won 9 MOM awards. All that in just 32 games. He managed more goals in his previous three seasons combined! Add to that the eight goals in the Europa League to get them to the final.

Votes. Neymar (11), Rooney (5), Gotze (1).

The Division 1 young player of the season goes to Deulofeu! (Blackpool)


The 20 year old is becoming a first team regular at Blackpool, with 23 starts and 10 subsitute appearances. He was the fourth most creative player in the league with 16 assists, aswell as scoring 10 times. Only Neymar, Rooney and Nani created more assists.

Votes. Deulofeu (8), Morata (2), Januzaj (2), Barkley (1).

The Division 2 manager of the Season goes to Dan! (Bolton)

Bolton made alot of transfers before the season began, but Dan worked his magic and got the players working together immediately, with an excellent 18 game unbeaten run at the start of the season. They only lost 7 games out of 46 which is a great record as they went on to win the league by six points. Finally back in the Premier League after a long spell away, Dan has turned Bolton from an average squad into one with a very bright future.

Votes. Bolton (13), Sunderland (1), Aston Villa (1), Swindon (1).

The Division 2 player of the season goes to Cavani! (Newcastle)


Cavani seems to love playing in Division two. Two seasons ago he managed to score 38 goals to get Newcastle promoted. Once again he fired Newcastle back into the Premierleague with 28 goals and 28 assists. 15 MOM awards to go with that from just 40 appearances.

Votes. Cavani (15), Costa (1), Benzema (1).

The Division 2 young player of the season goes to Sterling! (Aston Villa)


After four seasons at Villa Raheem Sterling finally got his chance and broke into the first team, making 27 appearnaces. The England international scored 8 goals and made 8 assists. His most notable game was in the play-off semi final where he scored a hat-trick in a 5-3 against Swindon which helped Villa get back into the Premier league.

Votes. Sterling (6), Origi (4), Pogba (3), Alcacer (Crewe).

The Division 3 manager of the season goes to Johan Alberts! (Fleetwood Town)

Johan is becoming a legend for Fleetwood Town. Achieving promotion to division 4 in season five, and in the following season promoted to division three. He established them in that division for three seasons and this time they got promoted into division two! Fleetwood had the least amount of losses in Division 3 with nine and bolstered the best defensive record outside off the premier league.

Votes. Fleetwood(6), Oldham (5), Oxford (4), QPR (1).

The Division 3 player of the season goes to El Shaarawy! (Derby)


The Italian international produced his best ever season in a Derby shirt. 27 goals and 17 assists in 41 games. Along with that he won MOM 11 times. Hes been a Derby player since season one, racking up 229 appearances and 86 goals. Could this incredible season see him move to one of the big clubs?

Votes. El Shaarawy (13), David Villa (3), Robles Joel (1).

The Division 3 young player of the season also goes to El Shaarawy! (Derby)

Votes. El Shaarawy (11), Bruno Fernandes (1), Perin (1), Carroll (1).

The Division 4 manager of the season goes to shyne omara! (Reading)

Shyne guided Reading to promotion after being crowned champions of division 4. They won the title by four points, and scored an impressive 103 goals. After two relegations with a host of managers it seems Shyne is the man to get Reading back to where the belong.

Votes. Reading (7), Cheltenham (4), Newport (4), Brentford (1), Yeovil (1).

The Division 4 player of the season goes to Fernando Torres! (Southport)


Many were surprised when Torres moved from the premier league to division 5 last season. His goals helped them get promoted into division 4, and this season looked back to his very best. 24 goals and 17 assists in 39 appearances, with 9 MOM awards. His goals guided Southport into the play-offs but just fell short of a second promotion.

Votes. Torres (12), Balde (2), Edinho (1), Weidenfeller (1).

The Division 4 young player of the season goes to Berainho! (York)


One of the most sort after youngsters in England at the minute, the England u-21 international is becoming Yorks main man. 15 goals and 10 assists in 31 appearances. He has been made unavailable for transfer but if he continues with these stats then a big money move may be on the cards soon.

Votes. Berahino (6), Sanson (3), Promes (1), Bruno Fernandes (1), Mitrovic (1).

The Division 5 manager of the season goes to Alex GP! (Shrewsbury)

Alex was able to win Division five with a five point gap over Northampton. Shrewbusry only tasted defeat eight times in the league and have the best defensive record with 53 conceded.

Votes. Shrewsbury (10), Rotherham (4), Northampton (1), Dagenham (1).

The Division 5 player of the season goes to Adrian Ramos! (Northampton)


Adrian Ramos improved so much this season. He scored 24 goals and 17 assists, more than the previous four seasons at the Cobblers. He achieved that in just 30 appearances and won MOM 10 times. His goals got dragged Northampton into second place, only to lose out in the play-off semi final.

Votes. Ramos (8), Raffael (7).

The Division 5 young player of the season goes to Zivkovic! (Dagenham)


The Aston Villa youngster was loaned out to Dagenham for some first team experience and he has made a huge statement to be involved at Villa in the future. He scored 16 goals in 24 starts, aswell as creating 6 goals. He was a sub in the play-off final which they lost, a start may have won them promotion on those stats.

Votes. Zivkovic (5), Talisca (3), Pirez (1), Gimenez (1), Embolo (1).

Overall manager of the season: Pip (Arsenal)

Pip just pipped Dan to the manager of the season award. A fantastic season for Arsenal with a first premier league winners medal and a european final.

Votes. Arsenal (7), Bolton (6), Blackpool (2), Sheffield United (2).

Overall player of the season: Cavani (Newcastle)

28 goals and 28 assists says it all really. Beat Neymar to the Ballon D'or with El Shaarawy coming in third.

Overall youth player of the season: El Shaarawy (Derby)

Saints start season with a point to prove

Southampton avoided the failure of the season award with great surprise last night, but have started it with real intent with two signings that will greatly improve the defence of the team, so that they can push on to score goals which they lacked last season.


A change was needed for my career, I feel with Southampton I can return to the Premier League with them. Some of the guys I'll train with internationally, like Welbz and Gibbo, so its nice to see them on daily basis.

Kyle Walker comes into the team in replace of Lallana, who for the second time leaves Southampton, as well as Gnabry, who admitted with the appearance of Kinglsey Coman felt he would be surplus to requirements.


I am happy to join club, Blaise and Morgan good friend, as well as Olivier. I see us go far in league, maybe challenge for title. I look forward to wear shirt with pride, Southampton good club, and Saint Mary's load of history.

Maxime Gonalons completes a french treble in the midfield, which should allow great chemistry within the midfield and the two french centre-backs with the prodigy Laporte and the tank as the Saints fans know him, Mangala.

It seems Naingollan and Lavezzi are two to be on the way out of Southampton, with a rumoured bid for Steve Mandanda to also bolster which would surely become Le Saints.

IN: Gonalons, Walker, Okutan, Rothwell

OUT: Lallana, Gnabry, Ljajic, Boilesen,

The team as it stands:


Szczesny (1)

Walker (2) Laporte (4) Mangala (5) Gibbs (3)

Matuidi (8)

Schniederlin (6) Gonalons (9)

Welbeck (10) Lavezzi(88)**

Giroud (14)

*Subject to Transfer


Szczesny (1)

Puchegger (46) McCarthy (15) O'Connor (39) Kimpembe (18)

Chambers (22)

Reed (18) Bambock (24)

Sane (73) Isgrove (19)

Akpom (46)
