    Who is watching Froch Kessler II next week? I'm really REALLY looking forward to it, I'm going for Froch on points
  2. Branislav Ivanovic

    I'm absolutely made up for him to get the winning goal after sitting out last years final, heroic performance too.
  3. European Competition thread

    What a bitter, long haired, muppet.
  4. The English Football Thread

    Just seen that Steve Clarke has left Liverpool... The question is, would he be welcome back at Chelsea, and is there a job for him? Obviously it depends on who the new manager is. Robbie might have time for him being ex team mates etc.
  5. Didier Drogba

    As much as I'd like Drogba to stay, I'd be happy for him if he decided to leave, what a way to sign off from the club, he's won everything with us, what more does he have to achieve now, he is a legend and is arguably our best striker ever.
  6. Streams

    Any links that work guys?
  7. Fernando Torres

  8. Ryan Bertrand

    Exactly, LOL, doesnt look good does it. When did Terry make his debut? 98/99? 13/14 years ago!
  9. Fernando Torres

    Strikers are judged on goals.................
  10. Ryan Bertrand

    Its hard to say, from what I've seen of Ryan, he is good enough though and I'd be sad to see him leave. Who was the last CFC youngster to break into the first team and become a regular?
  11. Ryan Bertrand

    Ash has been far from his best this season, he is on the decline now, this is where Ryan needs games, so why isnt AVB giving him a chance now and then?? I really dont want him to leave but if he asked to move, I'd completely understand why, he deserves to be playing.
  12. Fernando Torres

    Its hard to say, only Fernando or AVB can answer that, but its frustrating to see him with the ball in such deep postions, he's not going to score by dropping into midfield, and thats something the coaches and AVB need to address, play to the strengths of the players.... Its not Fernando that needs to watch the YouTube vids, its AVB.
  13. Fernando Torres

    Notice that most of his goals for Liverpool are from him playing between the lines and off the shoulders of the defenders, something AVB doesnt like his strikers to do, unless your gonna play Nando out on the right or left, we need to change our formation and tactics to get the best out of Torres. Am I the only one that thinks we need Torres up top with a playmaker playing off him (Mata)..?
  14. Edinson Cavani

    The lad is fucking amazing on Football Manager 2012.
  15. Fernando Torres

    Is it me or has he lost his pace completely?
  16. Salomon Kalou

    I´ll nip round his house, pack for him, and drive him up there myself!!
  17. The FIFA Thread

    Is this worth a buy then guys? Im coming back from holiday tonight, may have to stop off somewhere and get a copy.
  18. Romelu Lukaku joins Chelsea

    We must remember his age, he wont be going straight into the first team, he is seen as Drogba's long term replacement, working together on the training ground can only be a good thing. Romelu will get 10 mins here, 15 there to begin with. Anelka is gone imo, which leaves the RF/RW position vacant for Sturridge perhaps??
  19. Daniel Sturridge

    I really hope he is wearing blue next season!!
  20. The FIFA Thread

    XBL - Luke20vT So do young players not improve at all then? I gave McEachren/Kakuta/V.Aanholt/Bruma/Sturridge LOADS of game time during my first season on career mode, and none have progressed... yet. Is this likely to be the norm or do they actually grow after a few seasons? Also, any recommended players om career mode guys? I play 4-1-2-1-2.
  21. The FIFA Thread

    Got it pre ordered, picking it up Friday, cant wait!
  22. Hip Hop discussion

    Got into hip hop in the late 90's (Dre, Snoop, Xzibit, Eminem etc), although I still listen to alot (Game, Em, 50, Luda, Lil Wayne) it has gone downhill in recent years. I now find myself listening to alot of UK urban stuff like Bashy, Wretch 32, Even Tinchy etc.
  23. The FIFA Thread

    Cheers dude, very helpful. I started a new game, first thing I did was sell Deco to Juventus for 2.8m then Carvalho to R.Madrid for 11m then signed Ozil, had to pay 22m though!! My current formation is the 4-5-1, using direct passing and the 'control' tactic to begin with, I usually change to 'attacking' or 'overload' during the game. My team is, with the starting player first and their backup after... GK Cech/Turnbull DL Cole/Zhirkov DR Bosingwa/Ferriera DC Terry/Ivanovic DC Alex/Ivanovic DMC Mikel/Ballack MC Lampard/J Cole MC Essien/Ballack LW Ozil/Malouda RW Anelka/Kalou ST Drogba/Sturridge I'm doing well but Drogba isnt getting too many goals, I'm playing him as a complete striker, should I change this to a poucher or taget man etc?? Anelka is doing brilliantly as an inside striker, and Malouda as an attacking winger. Im also using the 2 CM's as box to box midfielders and Lampard in particular is on fire, 5 goals in 7 games in the league.
  24. The FIFA Thread

    Sorry to resurrect an old thread, but I've just brought this game and want to express my views and ask for some guidance... Ok so, I havent played a football manager game since Champ Man 4, which was EPIC, I loved that game and all the CM's before it, (I think the first one I played was set from 1995) but I havent played any of the FM or CM games since 2002ish.... thought I'd get back into it so brought FM2010, been messing around with it all afternoon and I love how detailed it is, I'm going to start a fresh game and do everything properly from the start. I dont want to go around splashing too much cash, I'd like to develop some of the youth (Kakuta, Borini, McEachren etc) so what tactics etc would you guys suggest I use? Any decent youth players I could sign? And do you guys chop and change your backroom staff and edit training much? Also, I really hate not having the clubs badge or any face pics for our players, can anyone suggest where I can download these 'patches' from and how to save them and use them? (I'm not too clued up on this kind of thing and I dont want to mess around with files etc) Cheers.
