Re: English Championship 8888 Discussion Thread

FINALLY MY STRIKER IS JOINING!!!!

The offer for Lukas PODOLSKI of 1. FC Koln from Bolton Wanderers has been accepted. The transfer will be completed within the next 24 hours.

Remember the name....he's strongly linked with Arsenal and surely will get a move away from Koln.He's 2nd in the top of goal-scorers in Bundesliga with 11 but got 5 assists too.My XI is complete now:

Handanovic(89)

Arbeloa(91)-Howedes(89)-Vertonghen(90)

Gustavo(89)

Muniain(88)-Herrera(88)-Pastore(90)-Valbuena(90)

Alexis Sanchez(91)-Podolski(90)

*Everybody U27 only Arbeloa is 28...or everybody U25 only 4 players from my team are Over 25...Arbeloa,Valbuena,Podolski and Handanovic but they're still U28.

I think I can take Cole now mate:)

Brighton announce 2 big signings in the form of Xherdan Shaqiri (88) and Rhodolfo (86). Shaqiri is a top young player with bags of potential, and he's versatile! Gave Vicente and Tommy Elphick + a wee bit of cash. Rhodolfo is Sao Paulo's star CB and is linked with a move to Juve in January, which will improve his prospects.

Larnell Cole looks set to join also.

Had a bid accepted on Alvaro Vasquez, but so have Bristol City and Peterborough, so should be a close one.

Re: English Championship 8888 Discussion Thread

New signing to announce at Chelsea, Franck Ribéry in exchange for Mikel, Alex and 5.2m. Not a bad Plan B to missing out on Muller yesterday, and is cheaper than my bid for Muller was so it's worked out quite well for us.

Still planning a couple more signings which I think will bring our squad size down to 21 including the 6 guys in the Youth Team so may not be in a position to loan anyone else out. Will be bringing squad numbers up once I've got the first team signings out of the way, but may not be sending anyone else out on loan for a few days.

Re: English Championship 8888 Discussion Thread

My offer for Pepe was only a couple of mill over P/E CV I think. I would have bid more actually but have run out of money.

I would say I got him ' date=' as I said , Heitinga worth around 16 Million and plus that massive sum of 8 Million , I would think it's enough !

Pazzini is going to be very close, my bid was worth 14.501m, Mario's was worth 14.'something'. :D

A bit cheeky there .. haha ! I HONESTLY can't remember what it was exactly :P

I hope it was just higher than yours , but who would refuse a move to Everton for a team like Leicester !

yeah pretty much the same with me on sneijder i got him for cheaper than what i would of got busquets for(if id of beaten your bid on him which i'd of doubted as iwas like 3milover p/e c.v)

some real nice teams starting to form already looks like this seasons gonna be wide open really no real runaways at the moment although after review i think man city's team is going to be a hell of a lot better ratings wise(not that it isn't already well good)

Well I'm sure Giampaolo is intelligent enough to know a team on the up when he sees one, and a team on the down. ;)

And why would he turn down the oppurtunity to play alongside a striker like Moussa Sow, with service from Gotze, Thiago and Douglas Costa, to play with your rag-tag bunch of rejects? :P

Re: English Championship 8888 Discussion Thread

One more player signs for Colchester, another 3 on the way.

Pedro BIGAS has completed his move to Colchester United from Mallorca for £300,000 plus Andy BOND . All other offers were turned down.

Been playing regularly for Mallorca, should get a decent rise from 78 in the Spanish changes.

The offer for Sastre PERE of Villarreal from Colchester United has been accepted along with other club offers. Villarreal will now decide which offer to proceed with. The transfer will be completed within the next 24 hours.

Bid 26k more than Bristol rovers so he'll be joining Colchester. Regular at Villarreal B so should get a rise in the Spanish changes.

The offer for Alejandro ARRIBAS of Rayo Vallecano from Colchester United has been accepted. The transfer will be completed within the next 24 hours.

Unchallenged. Brighton had interest but no bid was forthcoming. Will slot nicely into my starting defence, and will hopefully hit 85.

The offer for Aleksandar IGNJOVSKI of Werder Bremen from Colchester United has been accepted. The transfer will be completed within the next 24 hours.

Unchallenged, and not even any interest! Really happy with this signing, young, talented player, playing regularly for Bremen. Will definitely rise +2, hopefully +3.

Apart from a couple of 10k players, I have used all of the starting Colchester team in part exchanges now, and will have just over £1m left in the bank when the transfers go through. So my team building is very nearly done. :)

Arsenal News

A couple more players in to beef up the squad a bit and get rid of the dropping Andrei Arshavin etc.

The offer for Diego GODÍN of Atlético Madrid from Arsenal has been accepted. The transfer will be completed within the next 24 hours.
The offer for Stevan JOVETIC of Fiorentina from Arsenal has been accepted. The transfer will be completed within the next 24 hours.

This gives me a line-up looking along the lines of this:

Szczesny 87

Sagna (92) Vermaelen (91) Marcelo (92)

Neymar (90) Jovetic (90) Fabregas (95) Vidal (91) Gervinho (90)

Pato (92) Van Persie (93)

Subs:

Arteta (90)

Godin (90)

Walcott (90)

Rodriguez (89)

Wilshere (89)

I hope I've done the right thing here. I've found it quite hard to get the right balance. I hope I've got rid of the droppers and brought in some nice young rising players.

Constructive (or otherwise) criticism will be welcomed! :)

The offer for Ruben LIGEON of Ajax from Manchester City has been accepted. The transfer will be completed within the next 24 hours.

Dutch U19 international getting game time at Ajax.......When Van Der Weil finally leaves it looks like he is earmarked to take his place as he is very highly thought of by the Ajax youth and first team coaches.
