Ben,

For the 87th successive week, my scouts went to watch Luca Modric and Flamini without my asking them to

my main concern at this is that it says Man Utd are managed by Bill Ridley????

have you left?. Seeing as you were online yesterday...I'm assuming you havent.

I suggest a quick phone call to paul asap. (by the way...Bill Ridley wont exist!)

I predict that Paul hasnt got your turn or something like that

cheers

Rich

Edit....and apparently Utd have bid/bought £15m for Luis Garcia?????? this cant be you surely. get on the blower!.

Guys just wanted to make a brief response to this message. Yes, although I haven't seen my turn, I have taken over at Plymouth. Paul had a number of offers and nothing was confirmed before the turns arrived.

I just wanted to say that I have not moved because I am hungry to manage the best team in the game and win everything, thats not why I decided to move.

For me this game is actually about the experience, especially in terms of transfers and the people and banter on the forum. At Utd I was getting frustrated at the inability to get seriously involved in the transfer side of the game, and could not see this changing in the very near future. After considering my options I decided that I was going to apply for the Plymouth job which would give me lots of scope to do deals and become really active.

I also decided that with an semi-aging squad at Plymouth there was a real scope to build a new team of younger players from the ground upwards and in terms of dealings in the transfer market that will give me a really enjoyable experience and challenge.

I hope this clears things up before people think I have done this for the glory - that's not what I am about at all. Will put up a list of players who can go once I have looked at my turn.

Thanks guys

Ben

To be honest mate, I think you were struggling to get into the transfer side of the game because of the changes to the game. Not because you were Man Utd. Can see exactly the same happening at Plymouth.

Much harder to do a deal full stop nowadays.

All the best anyway.

tell me about it. not even morning glory never mind a glory hole. cant remember the last time the game gave me a tweak (on a results basis).

tom is quite correct in his statement aswell. the market has been very inactive of late, stagnant even, due to the inability to do deals or just that nobody is selling. though with the first XI thing starting to take full effect i think we will all be forced to start selling players in order to keep 11 happy ones. sorry I say 'we' as if everybody is in the same boat as me, probably not.

which i guess is why i'm left feeling under-tweaked Smile

yeah i'm only grumpy cos i just keep losing and there's absoutely no reason why i should. before the first XI demands came about all my player's morale was on superb, 9/11 players on superb TU so there was no reason for losing all the time. it seems I play 9 friendlies a week for no reason cos the result is always the same. so, i've decided to stop playing friendlies altogether, cos they seem a waste of time if you ask me. i've only used 18 players in my first XI this season, which for me is some achievment and by PL standards using 18 players is less than par for the course. so....why? why am i losing to teams of 84, 86 and 88 CR's? i get it happens from time to time in real life that blackpool or someone will beat liverpool.....but every week? no. from a tactical and team understanding point of view everything is where it should be so I should atleast be winning every other game given the skills of the player's and everything being where it should be to get a result.

the annoynig thing is i've posed this a few times and nobody has an answer other than to not change things etc etc....well i've done all that....so now what? i was doing better when i was playing 45 different players in a season and rotating every other week.

There is an issue that sometimes for an unexplained reason players just don't gel or play well together. The best example I have of this was when I had Suker, Boksic and Mijatovic at Bayern in Game 2. Suker and Boksic were a successful pair for Croatia and Suker and Mijatovic were awesome at Real but I just could not get any combo of them to work. Skills, understanding, everything was awesome. They just didn't gel. I brought in Fredi Bobic for a bag of crisps and a tube of smarties and he immediately went on a goal a game run which lasted 2 and a half seasons. His skills were shit and even I thought he was a donkey. He also helped Mijatovic start scoring too from knock downs etc. Basically a lot of the game comes down to team balance and good combinations. I've discussed this at length with other managers as well as Paul. But really important combinations are CB and also with your forwards. If you play SLO then the mix of your PM's is also key. I guess there's loads of these mini combos in any team - can a full back overlap well if he doesn't have a good understanding with the midfielder in front of him etc. But if I was managing Roma this is what I'd be looking at. I've just had a similar issue at Inter where my LB was a problem and didn't work with Ribery at LH or with Juan at left CB.

Sounds a little daft that, I've got 16 rich has 3?

Joking around aside, would players not be more prepared to sit in a squad for a top flight side in the hope of breaking into the first 11 than sitting on the bench for a lower division side not sure that's right?

Take west broms new recruit Billy jones, if he had stayed at Preston in league one this year he would expect nothing less than first 11 football, yet now he's moved to a premiership side he will probably be expecting to slug it out for a spot in the first 18 and then eventually get into the first 11?

Looks a little arse about tit to me

this is a good point. i'm not chucking in the towel just yet evne if I am pretty close to it. i'll see what happens in slow, my whole team has superb for it now so its pretty much the last throw. 3-6-1 could be an interesting tactic. nobody is playing wingers in italy.....so who needs full backs?
