    Manchester United [2012-2013]

    Carrick's there purely for composure and experience. A young side could easily buckle under the atmosphere at Gala. Observation: Rafael's composure and control is just fantastic. From before where he looked constantly fired up and on the edge, now he looks composed and incredibly mature. He's...

    Manchester United [2012-2013]

    Looks like we might have a new left-back in the name of Alexander Buttner. Anyone know anything about him? Apparent fee of £3.9mill. So hardly a huge risk. And at least provides some cover for Patrice.

    Manchester United [2012-2013]

    I think we'll actually be ok in CM. I'm not completely comfortable with it's longevity/flexibility. But we do have quite a few players that can/do play there. Scholes, Carrick, Cleverley, Anderson, Giggs, (Fletcher) and also Powell, Kagawa, Jones, Rooney and i'd like to see Tunnicliffe...

    On United website too http://www.manutd.com/en/News-And-Features/Football-News/2012/Aug/manchester-united-agree-deal-for-robin-van-persie.aspx I'm personally quite happy with him, he'll be good for at least a couple more years i reckon. With the strikers we've got now, we can use them...

    Watching the game yesterday, Brady definitely isn't an LB. He's a winger. Blackett, who came on in the second half at LB, looked very composed and a very good prospect. But definitely not ready for full first team yet. Lingard impressed too. But hey, first preseason game so can't say too much.

    The actual quote for the Brady comment was: "With Robbie [playing at left-back], it's an interesting experiment. He's got a good attitude, is strong and had a good season with Hull. It's a worth a try but I'm not saying it's going to be the answer to that position, but it's definitely worth a...

    I'd be pleased with Kagawa and Gaitan in the summer. Providing Fletcher is on his way back, otherwise we need a ball winner.

    CL Semi Final :: Chelsea vs Barcelona (P+R)

    Pardon me if i'm wrong, but i interpret that as pure arrogance. And not the good confident arrogance, more spiteful obnoxious arrogance. Not wanting to offend here, just my observation.

    CL Semi Final :: Chelsea vs Barcelona (P+R)

    I love how, according to themselves and their fans, Barcelona are never actually "beaten" or the opposition never actually "win". It's always "we lost it", "we didn't win", "we didn't do this... or that...". I know it all means the same thing, but the wording speaks for a lot. Whether that's a...

    Must admit i've never cheered a Chelsea goal so much, and i bet Gary Neville hasn't either.

    Haha! Must say i'm flattered by all the interest! :p Can i use this as leverage to get a new contract? I'd like to stay faithful of course, but it'll cost you...

    **SG United 2012 is here**

    How have people found it so far? Haven't had a chance to really have a go at the full one myself. In testing we sat around 6th when it came to the end of the season.

    **SG United 2012 is here**

    DOWNLOAD HERE So finally, it's released. Decided to go with the Premiership, and we're pretty good. Not sure if title winning just yet, but definitely the potential. The reason for going for the Prem was basically just to have some fun with this game. We're not going to be playing with...

    Just sent Fili a trial run of the file to have a go at testing. Just a few things to work out and then we'll get it released!

    I can't help but feel bad for Spurs. We've played horribly, two superb goals from Young though.

    SG UNITED - League choice

    Just been looking through the applications, we've got an average age of 23. Higher than i was expecting! Starting to think maybe the Prem will be a better idea, gives the older guys a chance to really get somewhere. So Poll overriden. Prem it is.

    SG UNITED 2012 application

    Just run a quick test for a season with a Transfer Embargo in place. It seems it only stops you from signing players for a fee. Free transfer players are still signed AND players can still be sold. Maybe we could get around this with setting everyone on long term contracts with 20 loyalty...

    Chelsea F.C [2011-2012]

    Even i struggled to watch the Napoli game. Usually a fan of Ramires, but he just seemed to run forward, run into someone, get tackled, lose ball. Luiz has some great qualities, but my god is his decision making and positioning bad. Especially with the still new Cahill with him. As a ball...
