    The first bid was before the offer for Balotelli came from Genoa, I withdrew it deciding to save my money for now. Genoa's offer meant that saving money wasn't an issue so I bid £1m for Verratti, but then decided to up the bid thinking Levo may have placed more than £1m down... turns out Levo only bid £800k though so I'd have had him easy with the first one.

    Cool beans :) Unfortunately, Glen Whelan will turn him upside down in the 3rd match, causing him to drop 40 points.....

    Wtf? Sounds like you're still the sour one, princess. What do you mean 'my own spot'? Do you think I'm claiming to be the first human being to recognise the existence of Verratti? They're professional footballers, they've all been spotted before, you clueless gimp. Why do you get so sour over my transfers?

    No, well yeah, but Belhanda's Ligue One's African player of the season. I guess they have their own award in France because there's so fecking many of them.

    Well done cider, Verratti in particular is a great signing. I almost signed him about a month back but went for a different player instead which wasn't the greatest choice at the time.

    :lol: I see what you mean.

    I can assure you that any implication on my part that there may be too many Africans in France is purely accidental. I don't give a feck about France or Africans, let alone giving two shits about how many Africans there are in France.

    I'd liken my managerial style to something of a cross between Brian Clough, Sir Alex Ferguson and Jose Mourinho tbh.

    I had Verratti on my shortlist for ages and finally decided to go for it, bloody Gambit's thread highlights the sod and Cider joins in.

    Only bid 800k because at the time I was the only bidder, Cider's bid was accepted before I even logged in again.

    The player I got at the time wasn't the best of decisions. Levo should remember. I kept putting one bid on a particular player and withdrawing it and that was because I was debating between Verratti and player X. Oh well.

    Need a win tonight. All but one of my players is on 100% (Nagatomo is on 99), while 6 of Brighton's are below 80.

    :lol: Yeah you can thank gambit for that, perfect timing; I searched for the player and saw you'd put a bid in so thought I'd mug you off :D

    I'd have then immediately upped my own bid also. I'm not as incompetent as to not keep regular checks for updates when bidding on a player with interest from other clubs.

    I just find you act very much like City to be fair. Watch who other people are interested in, sign them and then talk like you have unearthed a gem.

    Did you bid overnight or late on? From what I can remember I bid for him and then logged on the next morning and it had already been accepted.

    In regards to my game tonight it should be tight got some of my best players suspended/injured so got a few reserves in.

    At least they are all banned for the same game so should be fine for a while after this one.

    4 wins on the trot for me, starting to score far more goals now as well! Playing Portsmouth at Home, each team has pretty much 100% condition for their first team. Should be an interesting game.

    Hopefully I can close the gap on the top teams :)

    Hello Ando btw, welcome back buddy!

    :lol: I never look for players others are interested in, I can find players on my own thanks, if others have already registered interest then that's neither here nor there as far as I'm concerned. So basically you can feck off. Bas Dost got a big ratings increase to 88 the other day btw.

    A big increase? he was already on 86... I was looking for a 90 + forward so I am delighted with that. Ola John, who is more useful, had a much bigger boost for me, along with my 7+ er's

    Oh you're not bothered about Bas Dost then?

    Great, so let me know when you're ready to stop crying like a bit over it, bitch.

    I am delighted I was proved right by not signing him due to his feeble update

    Do they really have to have that pop up window stating "OMFG your golden account is expiring in 10 days" everytime you login?

    Well that's one problem, the other is that I've only got about 2mil and I don't want to go into the red.

    Also, what happens as we get further into the game for promoted teams? It will be hard to stay competitive in the league once you get promoted if every fecker is transfer banned or no one wants to sell.

    Cider you are a disgrace to Divisao One.

    You are like a combination of Neil Warnock and Kenny Dalglish if they both had a few quid to spend.

    The key is to look for the young talents for the future and buy them before other clubs do. New players are constantly added to the database daily and if the talent you do buy go up in the ratings you can decide whether to sell them on or keep them to go in your own first team. Some clubs in the league will be stubborn in selling players, but there will be some open to selling players in the future as the league progresses and they have their own talent they wish to promote to the first team and want to offload some of their other players that become redundant.

    You're always free to loan any more of my players in the future.
