Tonight it's a third v first Manchester Derby as United visit the Etihad. With United having no Kroos and City being at home, the team in blue are surely favourites.

Another talking point is Mbappe is set to lead the line against the manager he scored 53 goals and assisted 66 times for in just 94 league appearances. Mbappe is also currently United's top scorer this season with 12 goals and 9 assists in just 17 games

Feel like tonight will be the night Mbappe comes back to bite me in the arse, hopefully he'll be kind on me after our years at the Harriers :lol:

Good luck tonight @Damien!

The stats were even but an 89th minute Mbappe goal saw the visitors emerge triumphant 2:1 over hosts City. However, there were many casualties with Griezmann picking up a hefty injury while both centrebacks miss the loss to Darlington on Sunday.

De Gea (95)

Roberto (91)➕ Ramos (95) Boateng (94) Alaba (93)
Eriksen (93) Pogba (93)⚽
Brandt
(90) Griezmann (95) Isco (93)➕
Mbappe (92)⚽

Subs: Kimmich (92) Stones (90), Christensen (90), Goretzka (91) Dele (92), Sterling (92) Martial (90)
Seriously injured: Kroos (95)
Did not travel: Gaya (90)

Key:
⚽ = Goal
➕ = Assist
⭐ = MOTM
= Subbed off

Next three games:
MD13: Darlington (H)
LCR3: Liverpool (A)
MD14: Sunderland (A)

Good for rotation though no?
Hmm I guess but I coped fine for the first third of the season:



With the players missing, I'm probably going to have to delve into the loan market for the cup and shield games. Transfer banned people can still loan in players, right?

You'll be fine @Damien
For loaning players or in terms of my ever expanding injury list? @RedSky has already put a curse on me

Can you end this curse you've put on me anytime soon please, Phil? Thanks.
At this rate when we play I'll have to end up starting Brahim. Griezmann also conveniently misses our game.
That's a pity. You'll be fine though, can't possibly get any more injuries/suspensions can you?

Managed to get all my players the minutes they needed for the first 12 games at least. Shouldn't get any concerns tomorrow. Those injuries look even worse laid out like that (you're game #15).
Be a shame if someone like Boateng or Ramos got injured too. Heck Isco/Eriksen/Pogba would be terrible for you as well.

The way they add new players is so fecking random and they take forever to add obvious players.

Another first v third game tonight - just one match after the last one. With United having no Kroos, Griezmann, Ramos or Boateng (their four highest rated outfield players), Darlington are clear favourites to close the gap at the top to just one point.

Lost 3:1, unsurprisingly. Had no player higher than 83 rated to choose from whereas they had five. Weird thing is, despite the margin of defeat, one of my attackers was voted MOTM.

De Gea (95)

Stones (90) Kimmich (92) Alaba (93) Gaya (90)
Dele (92) Eriksen (93)⚽
Sterling (92) Pogba (93) Isco (93)
Mbappe (92)➕⭐

Subs: Roberto (91), Christensen (90), Brahim (80), Goretzka (91), Djerlek (77), Brandt (90), Martial (90)
Seriously injured: Kroos (95)
Annoyingly injured: Griezmann (95)
Suspended: Ramos (95), Boateng (94)
Did not travel: N/A - squad issues so severe I had to resort to putting youth players in the match squad

Key:
⚽ = Goal
➕ = Assist
⭐ = MOTM
= Subbed off
= Subbed on


Next three games:
LCR3: Liverpool (A)
MD14: Sunderland (A)
MD15: BloodyHereford (H)

Pretty pleased. Tonight was always going to be a question of how much United would lose by and my third string side with three loanees lost 1:0 to a full strength Liverpool team featuring Bale, Salah, Dybala, Ozil, De Bruye and many more - plus United dominated the stats.

Dear SM Redcafe Board,

I am writing in support of Damien, Wino and infamous7's application for a pardon. We were all wrongfully punished on a technicality that had not been clearly stipulated and for a crime that none of us were guilty for.
I am writing to have our names cleared from the records and the 1st violation removed as now the month sentence has been fulfilled.

Sincerely,
infamous7

Put an application in to rejoin the league @Damien.

Was a shame to see City go but I've had a mental summer and wasn't able to give Sm (or the Caf) any time at all. Think I lost all three of my clubs on there as I didn't get chance to log in for a good 2 months which was annoying. Pleased to see @gaz1185 get the job though, I remember him wanting it over 5 years ago when I got it. :)

@Damien

Shouldn't placing the bid itself call for the ban? The rule says any bid "made" triggers it, doesn't matter whether the guy withdraws it later or not.

"For teams with squads below the FFP, any bid made on a player shall be assumed to be won by the team bidding, and included in determining your squad limit for FFP."

Dunno, I'm just going by what happened last time.

The rule was created to stop managers from playing the odds and thus reducing other peoples chances of getting a player. If he withdraws before the transfer is completed everything is fine.

Yeah, sounds reasonable that. Should have clarified before, would have bid for the Barca RB then :(
