    Okay so looks like I’m in a relegation battle now. I’ve not logged in in quite a few days and I had my key players of fitness around 40% :D

    Two players got double yellows and two others were carded. It was a pretty close match but I definitely don’t think I should’ve won that one

    Because I sold him someone who's got one goal and one assist in 9 games? :laugh:

    I've said we need a reboot. No one's gonna win the league against that team.

    Greizmann improved my team but bit of a stretch to place the 'blame' on Donny, Greiz is only +1 on Eriksen & Silva. I've also had +1 on Oblak & +2 on VvD which has had made my defence rock solid, conceding a miserly 2 goals so far.
    You & your flippin reboots! :laugh: INB4 you advocate a reboot in the road to glory game if you don't go up. ;)

    I'd still be above you. ;) Honestly though it just gets boring if the same team wins the top division 8 seasons in a row and it's not gonna help the league grow at all.

    Its our own fault letting him buy Ronaldo when he already had Messi, that was the end of the game competitively.

    But to be fair, Ollie had the advantage of persuading users (especially ones about to quit the game lol) to part with players for buttons, whilst charging them a shitload of cash for his players :laugh: there were a few exchanges (cant remember players, etc) that were a bit questionable.

    By the time I joined the game every top player had already been bought, so I was never getting near him, especially given PSV were in a shocking state.

    I've sort of lost interest now, had too many players ratings been raped (harshly in some imo) and I've stopped looking for potential risers.

    Davids draft version has been the fairest, no one has been able to grab all the top players.

    I matched his Ronaldo bid, Ronaldo just chose him!

    Agree on David's being more fairest. That league and Road to Glory have ended up the most interesting.

    Not if I get promoted. ;)
    Oh that's the latest one is it, I'm winning because of questionable deals now? I know better than to expect credit for winning on FF, & I don't expect people to be happy about domination because I know it gets annoying, but to discredit 7 titles in a row is taking the piss. ;) The fact of the matter is I've just been better, I'm the best at SM on this forum & it's not even close.
    Frankfurt were available, told you to take them so you'd have some stars to build around. Coulda had Neymar, Thiago, Pjanic & VvD mate!

    It’s because you found the forum that tells you every obscure player and what their rating will rise too, before anyone else. :frog:

    Ah so that's how you knew about that Croatian kid you were boasting about the other day! :frog: Actually, @Cotterill:49 was a mod on there years ago & built his initial squad in this GW on risers, he had most worth having. In any case, I won like 3 titles with a squad full of geriatricos! Then I transitioned younger. We all started with 300m & I built the best squad with it, despite Joga & Cotterill both having had more experience than me. :smokin:

    Yeah I definitely had an advantage going in to this, as to be honest I knew the game inside out and was a moderator on the games forum for a few years. Definitely started well with assembling a really good squad that was increasing in value due to risers, and picking the club with by far and away the most talent in it as well as having a really good stadium.

    Struggled to keep up in the last year or so, been a busy one work wise and my focus on the site has been with a different setup fair play to Ollie his record on here is ridiculous and he deserves all the credit. I don't know how competitive it is now, but I imagine division 1 still has a lot of activity and he's on top of it every season, and there certainly is a lot of competition for him but he's built a really strong squad and with it he's done well tactically.
