Cheers Damo! No surprise I lost, haven't beaten you in a good few seasons
Ridiculous how unlucky you are. You had by far the greater number of chances but my keeper had a worldie

Only skimmed through it, I did make 3 changes in midfield at halftime, maybe that swung it. Oh well 7th lucky :drool:

Everton signs 12 (possibly 13) risers



Hakeem Araba
Sources have us to believe that all players can expect healthy rises and will make the club a nice profit. One of the players that will surely be moved on in time is englishman; Araba. The 24-year old hasn't had the most orthodox of careers; playing for many lower division sides in England. He moved to Greece where he's played for 3 different clubs with limited success. Now he is loaned to a team (Falkenberg) that is always likely to be relegated from the swedish top division; Allsvenskan. He likes to celebrate his goals like the twat Sturridge like above pictured or like this:

It looks like the 1.92 m, 84 kg fella is finally finding his feet as a pro. He's established himself a starter and is banging in the goals in a very physical league (6 in 8 starts). Will the time in Sweden be a move in the right direction like for Sheringham and Crouch? Time will tell. Sheringham was on loan at Djurgården for a season in 1985 and scored 13 in 21 games. Crouch was on loan at division 4 Ängelholm; scoring only 3 in 7.

Among the signings we find 2 swedish prospects with exciting futures. Sachpekidis (also known as suckmyhmmhmm amongst friends) from the Everton managers local favourites Kalmar FF and Zeneli from Elfsborg. The latter called "the swedish Messi" by former Southampton player and 148 capped national team player; Anders Svensson, after this goal (starts at 45 secs)

So, reckon there's a chance of Pogba increasing if Juventus manage to beat Barca tonight?

@The Stain, you've certainly got an interesting approach when it comes to signing risers. Don't think this approach will work out well for you personally but you never know

Yeah, this bunch won't make me many pennies but i'm lacking in funds currently so can't go for the big guns yet. Saying that, i will be looking to do just that soon so there will be some of my players up for sale.

Heavy amount of scouting must have gone into it. 12 risers at one go. Well done!

Now watch me fail to beat even that lineup.
You'll be fine. Cavani will be scoring for fun.

Think we played each other at the start of last season and you won 4:3. Can see a repeat of that but with my side scoring less.

1:1 draw, I'll take that. Dave saved me yet again. Arsenal with shitloads of chances.

Lacazette had a rating of four! :lol:

Isco picked up a small injury but he'll be back in a couple of days.

Beat Blackpool 3-6 what a game!

Only downside is Paletta getting a broken arm. Need to sort out another CB or two now.
