    Chapter 984, didn't quite see that coming!
  3. ATGMD Exhibition Match: Gio vs Invictus (M. Lippi vs Gusztáv Sebes)

    Litmanen would have been a more straight-forward, though still a wee bit imprecise, choice from @Jim Beam's team, yes. But Jim had mentioned wanting to use Charlton as a False 9 or deep-lying forward in passing conversation in the past, and this seemed an apt time to test the waters as the...
  4. ATGMD Exhibition Match: Gio vs Invictus (M. Lippi vs Gusztáv Sebes)

    Good luck with the rest of the draft @Gio, excellent team you have there. :) As for me, the only objective was to showcase Sebes (and secondarily Charlton, who was fortunately selected by @Jim Beam), so if any passerby gains even a surface-level understanding of the manager and his team as a...
  5. All Time Great Managers Draft

    I could do @crappycraperson's graphic for some sort of Guttman vs. Capello testimonial, this is what I think he was going for (though I can't fully process Pirlo as a half-back)... Best van Nistelrooy Jairzinho Rivaldo Didi Pirlo Zito Schnellinger Moore Thuram Chilavert Alternatively, a...
  6. ATG Draft - Round 1 - 2mufc0 vs Synco (J. Mourinho vs. L. Favre)

    ......................... Team 2mufc0 Inspiration/blueprint Jose's first Chelsea team (04-06) Playing style, tactics Before his United stint Jose Mourinho was an incredible manager who took on some of the best teams and managers of all time and bettered them, sometimes even with...

    Sure, PM me the writeups. :)
  8. Good players who made the wrong career move

    Edwin van der Sar, the first non-Italian goalkeeper bought by Juventus. An integral part of van Gaal's legendary Ajax team given his organisational skills and composure on the ball — winning the UEFA Goalkeeper of the Year award in 1995, ESM Goalkeeper of the Year award in 1996, finishing 3rd in...
  9. Players that have won two leagues in the SAME season

    The first couple of names that spring to mind are Ivica Olić and Jiří Jarošik. From what I recall, the former won the Croatian First League with Dinamo Zagreb and the Russian Premier League with CSKA Moscow in 2003 and the latter won the Russian Premier League with CSKA Moscow and the English...
  10. Transfer Tweets - 2019/20 | Check the OP for blacklisted sources before posting

    Take the reports with the grain of salt as Tuttosport and CalcioMercato have a dodgy record, but evidently Conte admires Robin Gosens. Which makes sense as he is acclimatized to Serie A football and has emerged as a key player on the left flank in Gian Piero Gasperini's 3-4-3. At least in theory...
  11. Astronomy/Space Exploration

    Somewhat unrelated to the core of the current discussion and delves into a mostly metaphysical (and at times cooky) paradigm, but an interesting lecture nonetheless: Philip Goff is probably the leading force in cosmo/pan-psychism and also made an appearance in Sean Carroll's podcast...

    Good points well made mate, guess I'm just a glass-half-empty grouch regarding Mugiwara no kaizoku-dan! :D

    Dunno if any of you have read the manga or watched the original anime but Shaman King is being rebooted for 2021, typical-ish shōnen but brings back fond memories! :drool:
  14. Atalanta

    Aye, a breath of fresh air in recent times, and super exciting to watch as they play with a great deal of intensity from front to back with quick execution in fluid passing connections and excellence in position play, interchanging of Ilicić (should be included in the Ballon D'Or shortlist at...
