Paul, are there many buildings that can be stretched to above 100% and is there still a limit of one building, apart from supporters clubs?

At Santos I've moved Rivaldo to target man as he might do a better job there than my usual encumbant, Saraiva, we shall see. I do like Saraiva though, so promising as a youngster, i remember seeing him playing for Santos as a skinny scrawny kid and I recommended him straight away to the scouts at Maine Road, who said he was too lightweight, but he was a talent for sure. Now sadly no longer with us but the memories linger.

Some can some cant, I'll leave it to you to find out which ones can.

The number of each type of building available to build has not changed.

Paul, thanks for the comments about the tactics on fly/sex. Would you consider Xabi Alonso (or possibly Mata?) good enough TMs to bring an ST into the game?

Dave at Rangers is still relying on the ageing Ballack in midfield but really needs a couple of decent strikers and is looking to sign Freddy Adu this week, still only 22 and may yet fulfil his once vast potential, who knows.

I'm going to include Stevie at Celtic in here as these two guys have been having their own private war in scotland for many years now, thanks lads, appreciated.

Stevie demolished Hibs a few weeks back with six goals all scored by different players but then only drew at Motherwell last week and needs to find a strike combination that gels every week. he reckons La Paglia is the most infuriating player in the game, but I expect most of you have your own 'most infuriating players' ?

Xabi for sure at full skills, Mata debatable as he's more of a natural winger atm.

Pete at Aberdeen is a huge Newcastle fan but admits to being a secret Dons fan on the side since the days of them regularly being in europe. ( He manages Newcastle in game two as well ).

Two wins in his last two games means its as you were for his first team this week but a few graduates from the academy could be on their way out.

No changes at Bayern, where Matt is hoping that the sale of Mertesacker will bring in much needed revenue. The fans will be hoping that Westermann can fill his shoes in the defence.

Quite a heavy reliance on youth atm for the backup roles, but dont forget, youths do not provide full competition for places until they turn 22 unless they are down at stars in the game, so a youthful reserve team is not bringing the best out of players in your first team.

Rangers should look at Eto'o. A "snip" at £10m and would tear Scottish defences to shreds.

I've added a field to the player database so that you can flag them as being

'Unavailable for bids from reality managers'

just do this using the review dealing if you want to use it.

Okay got Mark's turn now i'm just waiting for the postman to see if iain's turn is there.

A word on duplicate players. The rule is very simple, whoever has had the player at their club for the longest number of weeks gets to keep him, the duplicate will be deleted and compensation paid.

This does happen a bit with youngsters who change their name as they get older, or become known under a different name as they get older. This Gerard Deulofeu Lazaro is a case in point this week. Originally added to the database 40 weeks ago as Gerard Deulofeu Lazaro with the Lazaro surname and again recently as Gerard Deulefeu with the Deulefeu surname.

I cant check for the middle name so we had dupes.

You cannot ask to mark the oppositions Target Man, you need to specify a player reference as the choice has to be made prior to the match because these things need to be organised and practiced in training as opposed to done after the teams are announced with half hour left before kickoff.

Thanks for this. If you man mark someone who you think will play as TM (and then he plays a different position) will the marker constantly be dragged out of position then, or will he use his intelligence and ignore your instruction?

He will mark whoever wherever he goes thats the nature of man-marking and the drawback im afraid, as you had scouted france I put mascherano to mm benzema who was their TM in the last game.

Someone asked about loaning, the owner pays the wages and the player loaned out will start again with team understanding each time he switches clubs.

There are some big games to look forward to this week, especially in the game between Birmingham and Arsenal where Brum made alot of changes and Arsenal are very settled, it'll be interesting to see what happens here.

The other big game of course is Real Madrid at home to Barcelona, rumours are flying around that Matt has had Iain 'delayed' on the motorway so he cant get to the game Smile

Most games are important but games like Newcastle Westham, Fulham Man United and Chelsea Charlton are especially important at this early stage of the season, none of these sides can afford to lose three points on their rivals atm.
