Bigger teams finally getting interested. Palermo, Werder Bremen or Olympiakos, if I could choose I'd go for Werder.

Then again, my 3M transfer fees seem tiny compared to the amount of money Selim Atas is being linked to...

Good updates, can't wait to hear more!

Chelsea has accepted the bid from AC Milan for Luke Swinson.

Kyrgyzstan has appointed their new manager. It’s 44 year old Alexandr Korzanov who gained 16 caps for Kyrgyzstan, scoring 1 international goal in the process. This is his profile (http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r74/peth999/Commentators%20Curse/AlexandrKorzanov-KyrgyzstanAugust20.jpg).

Everton has made a £6.25m bid for Turkus Mendieta.

It is being widely reported in the media that Betis manager Ruben Cousillas is to spend the majority of his transfer budget on purchasing £3.1m rated George Robson.

One day later though, news came through that George Robson had rejected the offer of a new contract with Vicenza and had decided to sign for Palermo in a £3.8m transfer. Palermo is in the Champions League for the forthcoming season.

Azeryk is to miss the start of the Premiership campaign with new side Wigan after picking up a hip injury. He will be out of action for around 2 months.

Lazio striker Bill has revealed he was disappointed by the sale of Michael Dawson from Lazio to Inter Milan.

However, his mood may cheer up by the news that Luke Swinson has decided to join Lazio on a season’s long loan deal from Chelsea.

Man Utd has appointed Javier Aguirre as their new manager.

Lecce are interested in Everton’s Benj.

Arsenal has beaten Newcastle 4-0 in the Community Shield. Rhys Davies was an unused sub, but still picks up his first medal in Arsenal colours (if you can call the Community Shield a trophy!). It was a mixed day for Van Persie, scoring a hat-trick before getting sent off. He still got the MOM award though.

The Stanlies Cup 2010
Sat 22nd May: Kyrgyzstan v Turkmenistan – 1st Leg

Pre Match (http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r74/peth999/Commentators%20Curse/The%20Stanlies%20Cup/20101stLegPreMatch.jpg)
Kyrgyzstan starts with 10 superkids, with Alan as captain as well as being classed as the ‘key man’. On the bench is Lui, Mastinho + Freealdinho.
Turkmenistan starts with 9 superkids with Samaras Taraldo as the ‘key man’. The captain is a non-superkid. Alvaro De Santiago hasn’t fully recovered from his injury to be listed on the subs bench.

My Opinion
Kyrgyzstan have won the every Stanlies Cup since it started back in 2007. I think they will be fired up for this as key preparation for the World Cup. Turkmenistan are missing some key players as well. I think Kyrgyzstan to win by a couple of goals.


51 seconds in and Frketic scores for Kyrgyzstan! Bubble plays the ball to Frektic just inside the area, who spins and fires past Rhys Davies. 1-0.
George Robson reacts first to a loose ball in the Turkmenistan area, but his shot goes miles over the bar.
Luke Swinson plays a pinpoint pass through to non-superkid Bairamov who is free in on goal. He makes a deft little chip over Elfdog to find the back of the net. 1-1.
Kyrgyzstan dominate the next few minutes, with Robson, Azeryk + Alan all having efforts on goal.
24 minutes gone and an innocent looking move by Turkmenistan results in Birkinaldo fouling Bairamov just inside the penalty area. Penalty to Turkmenistan. Koppers comes forward to take the penalty and blasts it down the centre. 1-2.
Kyrgyzstan almost get an instant reply, McNeil forcing a great diving save from Rhys Davies.
31 minutes gone and Bubble plays a magnificent ball to Azeryk in the area, but his first time volley goes inches wide of the right hand post.
Chaoconov picks up a yellow card.
37 minutes gone and Kyrgyzstan counter attack. Robson plays a ball over the top for Alan who latches onto it and slots it past Davies. 2-2.

Half Time Match Stats (http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r74/peth999/Commentators%20Curse/The%20Stanlies%20Cup/20101stLeghalftimematchstats.jpg)
Great game so far!
Azeryk is subbed at half time.


Robson spreads the ball out to the left wing to Gary McNeil. He takes it to the touchline before crossing it to the near post where David Frketic pops up to turn the ball home. 3-2, an hour gone.
The goal marks several substitutions. Off goes McNeil + Alan and on comes Mastinho + Freealdinho for Kyrgysztan. Luke Swinson + Peter Slater are subbed for Turkmenistan.
Mastinho picks up a yellow card soon after coming on.
After 71 minutes Birkinaldo + Frketic are subbed off for Kyrgyzstan. Pablo Gonzalez is also subbed for Turkmenistan.
George Robson picks up a yellow card after 73 minutes.
Freealdinho + Robson both have half chances in the remaining minutes.
In injury time Chaoconov commits a foul and the referee decides to show him a 2nd yellow card. Chaoconov is sent off.

It seems that Hermandinho has really found the club of his dreams with his new 5yr contract despite the poor club performance last year.

Anyway, Hermandinho had a super World Cup, look at the avg ratings!

And a new coach for the Turkmeni? Bad news I guess... I wonder what the effect of that will be.

Week ending Sunday 22nd August 2010

Chelsea, Arsenal and Barcelona have suddenly become interested in Elfdog. Chelsea has made a £5.25m bid for him, with Barca offering £3.5m and Arsenal £3.6m. (Have to admit that the competition at all 3 of those clubs is intense for the GK position).

Watford has rejected the offers from Barca and Arsenal and have stalled on the Chelsea offer.

Portsmouth has appointed Bulgarian legend Hristo Stoichkov as their new manager. They had been without a manager since Baltemar Brito left to join Aston Villa earlier in the month.

Carlos Ancelotti has expressed his interest in bringing Selim Atas to the Bernabeu. However the manager of Athletico Madrid has rubbished this, saying that he is going nowhere.


The World Rankings for August has been released:
<pre class="ip-ubbcode-code-pre">
Turkmenistan 21st (1105 points) Down 1 place
Kyrgyzstan 51st (613 points) Down 5 places.

Week ending Sunday 29th August 2010


All 3 bids were rejected for Elfdog. Chelsea then upped their offer to £8.1m which has been accepted by Watford.

Selim Atas has told the press he is unsettled by the recent talk in the papers about his future.

David Frketic was not in the match day squad as Real Madrid beat Vitesse 2-1 in the European Super Cup, thanks to goals from Higuain and an on-loan Theo Walcott.

Alvaro De Santiago + Gary McNeil both started as Inter Milan beat Napoli in the Italian Super Cup 2-1, thanks to 2 goals from Wayne Rooney.

Marcus Cook has told the Sunday papers that he feels there is too much competition for places for the strikers at Middlesbrough, but that he is prepared to knuckle down and make sure that he is selected week-in week-out. The first team strikers currently there are Marcus Cook, Darren Bent, Kenny Miller, Yakubu and Martin Petrov.

Special 1st September 2010 Update

As per usual at this time of the year, this is a special update on the players.

But first, more news…

Arsene Wenger announced his interest in Mastinho, but nothing materialised from it.

Elfdog agreed terms with Chelsea and joined them in an £8.1m transfer.

In a surprise development on the last day of the transfer window, Charlton came in with a £7.25m offer for Marcus Cook which was accepted by Boro. Later that day Cook agreed terms with Charlton and moved there. The news was warmly welcomed by Phil Jageilka, who said that Marcus Cook was an exciting prospect.

You've only got Cech and Cudicini ahead of you lol! You're currently listed in the reserves squad, but I would hope you get promoted to the first team sometime during the season.


As for your other question, I'll continue with the sign up as long as people keep on posting. My aim is to do at least up to the 2012 Olympics (so 2 more seasons min), but I will probably go up to the World Cup 2014 then review the situation (4 seasons more).

After the Lazio v AC Milan game, Lazio’s manager praised Hermandinho for his good performance.
Hermandinho snubs the praise.

Liverpool manager Roberto Mancini has told the press he is disappointed with the recent form of Alan. (7-6-6-7-5).
Alan responds by saying that he is currently short of form.

Prof Frink has sprained his ankle and will be out for a couple of weeks.

Koppers is a regular starter for Barcelona. Although it is rather ironic that he moved over the summer due to AC Milan not playing with 4 at the back last season so he couldn't get a game, yet this season they do play with 4 at the back!


Prof Frink + Turkus Mendieta were playing together before the Prof got injured, yet Everton have had mixed results so far this season.

MOTW Report
Sun 2nd Oct: Birmingham v Everton – English Premiership

With Prof Frink out injured, it is just Turkus Mendieta + Benj who line up for Everton against Birmingham in a 4-4-2 formation.

Benj heads clear a corner from Birmingham but the clearance falls to a Birmingham player who volleys from the edge of the area. The shot is dramatically headed off the line by Gavilan.
18 minutes gone and Gary O’Neil is fouled in the Birmingham penalty error. Up steps Andy Johnson who dispatches the penalty. 0-1.
Everton keeper Costil pulls off a fine one-on-one save against David Nugent just as the first half was coming to a close.

HT: Birmingham 0 v 1 Everton

Nugent equalises for Birmingham after 55 minutes, tapping in from 2 yards after Costil could only parry a shot by Okaka. 1-1.
David Bellion almost got Birmingham a 2nd goal just 2 minutes later but Benj made a great challenge trackingback.

Turkmenistan v Singapore
Weds 13th Oct: Asian Nations Cup 2011 Qualifier

The day before the match and Turkmenistan received bad news. Ghoolbi Dumats had broken his ankle and will have to spend the next 3 months on the sidelines.

Pre Match (http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r74/peth999/Commentators%20Curse/Asian%20Nations%20Cup%202011%20Qualifiers/1stvSingaporeprematch.jpg)
The first game in charge for Yury Magdiev and he opts for a 3-5-2 sweeper formation, with Selim Atas as the captain and key man. Only 8 superstars are starting though, with Rhys Davies, Luke Swinson, Humphrey Koppers + Peter Slater on the bench. For Ulfinus Chaoconov + Turkus Mendieta there isn’t even room on the subs bench.

My Opinion
Despite playing in Singapore, Turkmenistan should have too much for the opposition. A comfortable win.


In only the 2nd minute Turkmenistan barged their way down the centre of the pitch. Bennitto sets up Gonzalez who seemed destined to score, but the goalkeeper spread himself well and the ball was cleared.
After 11 minutes the deadlock is broken, Bennitto playing Atas through down the centre of the pitch. He calmly slots home. 1-0.
17 minutes gone and Gareth Davies plays in Gonzalez, who scores at the second attempt. 2-0.
25 minutes gone and its game over. Bennitto has a long shot blocked, but it falls into the path of Gareth Davies, who slots it in at the near post. 3-0.
Atas should have made it four nil after 34 minutes but the keeper makes a great close range save after a cross from the right by Gareth Davies.

Hermandinho is left unmarked in the penalty area from a corner on the right, but his header goes over the bar.
Gonzalez sees his left footed shot go narrowly wide.
72 minutes gone and Turkmenistan make a double substitution. Off goes Gareth Davies and on come Luke Swinson + Peter Slater. Swinson takes over as captain and plays in the right wing back role.
Koppers comes on after 79 minutes to play at left wing back.
Gonzalez gets the fourth goal for Turkmenistan after 81 minutes, firing in a pull back from Atas. 4-0.
Peter Slater sees his header hammer against the crossbar after a corner from the left.
Gonzalez is through on goal with a couple of minutes to go but sees his chance of a hat-trick slip away as he smashes the ball over the bar.

Kyrgyzstan v Tajikistan
Weds 13th Oct: Asian Nations Cup 2011 Qualifier


Alexandr Korzanov adopts a much more traditional and logical approach compared to his Turkmenistan counterpart. 11 superstars start for Kyrgyzstan in a 4-4-2 formation, with Lui in goal and Alan as captain and key man. On the bench is Elfdog, Azeryk, Freealdinho + Halali.

My Opinion
Tajikistan will not be a rollover but Kyrgyzstan should have too much for their opponents.


Kyrgyzstan has the vast majority of the early possession but good goalkeeping on several occasions prevent them from taking the lead. The highlights included a good close range save from Bill and fine diving save to stop a Benj header.
20 minutes gone and Bubble puts in a cross from the right, Alan connects but his header hits the left post.
Kyrzgystan finally break through after 23 minutes. Mastinho + Gary McNeil had swapped wings and it proved to be the crucial factor as Mastinho swung in a corss from the right and Gary McNeil was at the back post to header back across the goal and into the corner of the net. 1-0.
Tajikistan are then given a double whammy, as straight from the kick off Bill intercepts the ball, passes to Alan who runs past his man before smacking it in the top corner. 2-0 and it took just 8 seconds to score that goal!
Just before the half hour mark the Tajikistan keeper makes a horrendous clearance straight to the path of Alan who is left with a simple finish as the keeper was out of position. 3-0.


HT: Kyrgyzstan 3 v 0 Tajikistan
Half Time Stats (http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r74/peth999/Commentators%20Curse/Asian%20Nations%20Cup%202011%20Qualifiers/1stvTajikistanhalftime.jpg)

54 minutes gone and Gary McNeil plays a long ball over the top for Bill, who takes it in one-on-one with the keeper before comprehensively burying it past him. 4-0.
Another poor clearance, this time from a defender goes straight to Alan who plays in Bill, but this time his shot goes narrowly wide of the right hand post.
Good passing between Robson, Alan + Benj resulted in Benj having a 25 yard shot being pushed round the post by the Tajikistan keeper.
Freealdinho comes on for Alan after 76 minutes.
Mastinho is subbed after 82 minutes and Robson is subbed after 89 minutes.
Freealdinho sets up Bill deep into injury time but again the keeper makes a good save.

Pre Match (http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r74/peth999/Commentators%20Curse/Asian%20Nations%20Cup%202011%20Qualifiers/2ndvKuwaitprematch.jpg)
8 superstars start for Turkmenistan in an unchanged line up from the previous game. Key man and captain is Selim Atas. On the bench are Rhys Davies, Luke Swinson, Humphrey Koppers + Peter Slater.

My Opinion
Another fairly easy win for Turkmenistan.


Kuwait hit the ground running and offer the early threats on goal. After a shot just over the bar after 10 minutes, Kuwait have a golden opportunity, 10 yards out and a free header, but it goes straight into the arms of De Santiago.
Taraldo makes a goalline clearance after 18 minutes, as De Santiago could not hold a shot from a tight angle.
Kuwait counter attack after 21 minutes and their forward sees a shot go just wide of the far post.
Turkmenistan have claims of a penalty turned down by the ref, but the move culminates in a corner after desperate last gasp blocks from shots from Gareth Davies + Selim Atas.
Hermandinho picks up a yellow card for a late tackle after 40 minutes. The Kuwait freekick forces a good save from De Santiago, with Hermandinho there to sweep up things.
Atas forces the first good save from the Kuwait keeper after 44 minutes, tipping a header round the post.


HT: Kuwait 0 v 0 Turkmenistan

Kuwait has perhaps been the better of the 2 teams so far.


Bennitto hits a long shot over the bar after 53 minutes.
Turkmenistan put the ball in the net after an hour after a long ball counter attack, but it is ruled out for a clear offside by Atas.
2 minutes later and Gareth Davies plays through Atas, but the Kuwait keeper spreads himself well.
Atas heads just wide from a Gonzalez cross.
Kuwait really should have taken the lead after 71 minutes. Their striker rounds the keeper but is slightly put off by defenders rushing back and puts his shot into the side netting.
Koppers + Swinson come onto the pitch after 72 minutes.
Gareth Davies is subbed after 79 minutes.
In the fourth minute of injury time Kuwait unleash fury on the Turkmenistan goal, but De Santiago flicks the ball over the bar. Kuwait then get 3 corners in a row, but eventually the threat is removed.


FT: Kuwait 0 v 0 Turkmenistan

Pre Match (http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r74/peth999/Commentators%20Curse/Asian%20Nations%20Cup%202011%20Qualifiers/2ndvJordanprematch.jpg)
10 superstars start for Kyrgyzstan, with Lui in goal and Alan as key man and captain. On the bench is Elfdog, Freealdinho & Habib Halali.

My Opinion
This is the team Kyrgyzstan have to beat to qualify as one of these teams will probably join Iran in the Final Tournament. I think Kyrgyzstan will win this game, but not by a large scoreline.


Kyrgyzstan start the stronger and take the lead after 9 minutes, Bill supplying a cross from the left and Benj beats the keeper to the ball at the near post to head home. 0-1.
Benj could have scored his second, but his header from a corner cannons against the post after 12 minutes.
Less than a minute later though and Kyrgyzstan do score, Mastinho having his shot parried by the keeper, but Gary McNeil is there to tap home at the far post. 0-2.
Great save over by Lui, who was running backwards and stretching to tip a looping shot over the bar.
Just before halftime Jordan and get a lifeline, as Ryan brings down his man in the area. Penalty to Jordan. Lui goes the right way but can’t save it. 1-2.


HT: Jordan 1 v 2 Kyrgyzstan

Mick Bubble + Mastinho are subbed at half time, with Halali coming on. Kyrgyzstan change to a conservative 3-3-2-1-1 formation.


Lui makes a fine save, changing direction to stop a deflected freekick from going in.
Alan hits the cross bar after 55 minutes with a shot from 25 yards.
Bill almost scores a wonder goal. He steals the ball off a slow defender from inside his own half, but running half the pitch only to have his shot well saved by the keeper.
Almost an own goal for one of the non-superstars, but Lui gets across to tip the ball round the post.
Alan fires a shot low and hard from the edge of the area, but sees his shot go just wide. Gary McNeil is then subbed off.
Alan should have wrapped up victory with 10 minutes to go, but again the Jordan keeper spreads himself well and makes the blocking save.
A poor touch from Halali leaves a Kuwaiti player with a simple finish 8 yards out, but he shockingly blazes the ball over the bar.

Pre Match (http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r74/peth999/Commentators%20Curse/Asian%20Nations%20Cup%202011%20Qualifiers/3rdvIranprematch.jpg)
11 superstars start this top of the table clash, with the winners pretty much guaranteed a spot in the Finals. Alan is the captain and key man. On the bench is Elfdog + Freealdinho.

My Opinion
Tricky one as Iran is a good team and in good form, but Kyrgyzstan has 11 superstars on show. I predict a narrow Kyrgyzstan victory.


Mastinho has his shot tipped over the bar after just 2 minutes.
6 minutes gone and Mastinho picks out Bill at the far post with a long deep cross. Bill heads past the despairing keeper. 1-0.
George Robson picks up a yellow card.
Iran start to come back into the game and have the majority of the possession, but can’t get a shot on goal.
Birkinaldo tries an overly hopefully shot from 30 yards. It goes well wide.
A lovely move down the right results in Bill putting the ball into the net, but he was in an offside position when he received the ball.
Bill makes up a few minutes later on though. Benj plays the ball into his feet, he turns and from the edge of the area finds the top corner of the net. 2-0.
37 minutes gone and Mastinho plays the ball to the feet of Alan who is in the 18 yard box, but his legs are taken away from him before he can shoot. Penalty to Kyrgyzstan. Up steps Ryan who smashes the ball into the corner of the net. 3-0.
On the verge of halftime, an Iranian goalkick is headed back by Birkinaldo, with Bill racing onto the ball, but his shot goes over the bar.

The second half starts quietly but Bill + Robson have shots over the bar.
Alan is replaced by Freealdinho after 73 minutes.
It goes from bad to worse for Iran. They go down to 10 men after 76 minutes, their right mid picking up a 2nd yellow. A raft of substitutions follow, with Mick Bubble + Mastinho getting subbed.
A surging Iranian run forces Lui to come out and make a fine save.

Sun 17th Oct: Asian Nations Cup 2011 Qualifier

Pre Match (http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r74/peth999/Commentators%20Curse/Asian%20Nations%20Cup%202011%20Qualifiers/3rdvUAEprematch.jpg)
An unchanged line up for Turkmenistan, with 8 superstars starting. Samaras Taraldo is the key man and Selim Atas skippers the side. On the bench are Rhys Davies, Humphrey Koppers, Luke Swinson + Peter Slater.

My Opinion
These 2 sides have played twice before, with Turkmenistan winning one and a draw in the other game. I predict Turkmenistan to notch up another win here to create a gap at the top of the group.


U.A.E. starts the brighter and go close after 6 minutes, a curling shot just missing the far post.
Gonzalez almost breaks the deadlock at the other end, his mazy run leads to a shot slid just the wrong side of the post.
Turkmenistan take the lead after 14 minutes. A long goal kick from De Santiago is flicked on by Gonzalez. It looked as if it would be easily cleared by the U.A.E., but Atas chased after the ball just getting to it ahead of the keeper and defender. He took it round the keeper before sliding it towards goal. An Iranian defender got a touch on the ball as it was going in the net, but not enough to classify it as an own goal. 0-1.
De Santiago makes a brilliant save from a U.A.E. freekick to prevent an equaliser.
A couple of minutes later though he couldn’t do anything as a cross from the right led to a close range header flashing past him and into the net. 1-1.

Libertinho picks up a knock early in the second half but decides he can carry on.
Peter Slater replaces Gareth Davies after 61 minutes.
Hermandinho saw his header from a corner go just wide of the post, great chance.
Swinson + Koppers come on after 74 minutes in a double substitution.
Libertinho sees a shot from deep curl wide of goal, close.
Both teams have half chances in the final few minutes and as the final whistle goes, both teams will sit back and reflect that this was probably a fair result.

Well I plan to take this sign up up to the 2012 Olympics (August 2012), as it will allow for a comparison with the team's first attempts. So thats pretty much another 2 seasons.

I would say its highly likely I will do another sign-up for FM08, currently thinking of new ideas to use and what the basis of the sign-up will be, although I'll probably wait until at least the first patch has come out (so probably will be around Xmas time). I quite fancy having a good crack at Dafuge's challenge before starting a sign up (don't have enough time on my hands now to do that and a sign up at the same time).

Of course any sign up I do for FM08, I will give priority to people who were a part of this one, I'll probably put up vague details of it in this thread nearer the time so people can reserve a place before I put the new thread live. http://community.sigames.com/customicons/icon14.gif

Week ending Sunday 24th October 2010

Wigan have sacked their manager Chris Hutchings. Early reports suggest that Canadian Frank Yallop is the early favourite to be the new manager at the club.

Mick Bubble has strained his neck and will be out for a few days, possibly ruling him out of the next Kyrgyzstan match.

Benj is wanted by Chelsea.


The International call-ups for the final round of 3 matches has been announced and there are several surprises:

Kyrgyzstan have called up only 9 superstars, with Jacariah Birkinaldo, Habib Halali, Alan, Freealdinho + David Frketic all demoted to the U21s and Prof Frink + Benj excluded from the squad.

Turkmenistan have called up only 6 superstars! Rhys + Gareth Davies, Libertinho, Humphrey Koppers, Ulfinus Chaoconov + Selim Atas have all been demoted to the U21s, Marcus Cook + Ghoolbi Dumats are injured and Turkus Mendieta + Samaras Taraldo ignored completely.

Kyrgyzstan v Jordan
Mon 25th Oct: Asian Nations Cup 2011 Qualifier


Pre Match (http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r74/peth999/Commentators%20Curse/Asian%20Nations%20Cup%202011%20Qualifiers/4thvJordanprematch.jpg)
Only 7 superstars start for Kyrgyzstan today. On the bench is Elfdog. The key man is Gary McNeil and for the first time Bill is captain of the national team.

My Opinion
A draw will confirm qualification to the Finals for Kyrgyzstan but they are up against it due to the ludicrous decision making of the Kyrgyzstan national team manager. A lack of defensive cover could prove costly. However, the fire power upfront on offer should be enough to secure at least a point. Narrow Kyrgyzstan win.


Kyrgyzstan put pressure on the Jordan goal early doors, with Azeryk seeing a shot saved in just the first minute. A couple of minutes later and Azeryk scores, running on to a Bill flick on to bury the ball past the goalie. 1-0.
George Robson almost curls a shot into the top corner with his left foot after 20 minutes.
Bill had a couple of half chances before halftime but nothing to test the keeper.

Gary McNeil is subbed at halftime.


A subdued second half as Kyrgyzstan go on the defensive. Mastinho + Bill have long range chances but they are only speculative efforts.
Mastinho is replaced after 72 minutes.
Lui makes a fine save from a header to deny Jordan an equaliser after 75 minutes.
Ryan sees his freekick effort go narrowly over the bar.
With under 2 minutes of normal time remaining Azeryk is played in on goal by a ball over the top. He runs in on goal before slotting the ball past the keeper to secure the game. 2-0.

Singapore v Turkmenistan
Sun 25th Oct: Asian Nations Cup 2011 Qualifier

Pre Match (http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r74/peth999/Commentators%20Curse/Asian%20Nations%20Cup%202011%20Qualifiers/4thvSingaporeprematch.jpg)
Due to the shocking squad selection decisions, only 5 superstars start the game for Turkmenistan, with Luke Swinson on the bench. For the first time ever Hermandinho leads out his nation. He is also regarded as the key man for Turkmenistan.

My Opinion
The lack of superstars is worrying in a must win game for Turkmenistan. However, Singapore are in poor form and Turkmenistan should have enough about them to win.


Just 14 seconds into the game Gonzalez forces the Singapore keeper to tip the ball over the bar. A minute later and Gonzalez smacks the ball against the crossbar from close range after a mini scramble in the box.
Singapore then almost take the lead at the other end, their left mid was left unmarked at the back post but he inexplicably can’t get his header on target.
Peter Slater + Bennitto go close over the next 15 minutes.
Finally Turkmenistan gets the break through, a poor header by a Singapore defender falls to Gonzalez who has all the time in the world to pick his spot and score. 0-1.
43 minutes gone and Bennitto Hagan takes a corner from the right. Peter Slater scores the second goal at the back post with a header. 0-2.
2 minutes into injury time and Gonzalez gets the third for Turkmenistan after Hermandinho played a ball over the top for him. 0-3.

A few minutes into the second half and Gonzalez dribbles past 2 defenders before slotting home to collect his hat-trick. 0-4.
Peter Slater goes close twice in the next 10 minutes.
Luke Swinson is brought on after 74 minutes.
Bennitto Hagan hits the crossbar with a 20 yard freekick after 81 minutes.

Weds 27th Oct: Asian Nations Cup 2011 Qualifier

Pre Match (http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r74/peth999/Commentators%20Curse/Asian%20Nations%20Cup%202011%20Qualifiers/5thvIranprematch.jpg)
8 superstars start for Kyrgyzstan, with Prof Frink getting a late call up after receovering from injury. On the bench are Elfdog + Mick Bubble. The captain again is Bill and the key man is Gary McNeil.

My Opinion
With Kyrgyzstan already qualified and Iran only needing a point from 2 games to join them, this game could be a tepid affair. I reckon 1-1.


Mastinho picks up a knock after only 4 minutes, but he stays on the pitch.
zzzzzz... The rest of the half is a snooze fest, until the last couple of minutes, when Lui had to go down well and make a fine save at his near post.
In the fifth minute of stoppage time (how 5 minutes were given is beyond me!) Iran launched a counter attack and the Iranian striker lashed the ball into the net from 25 yards – that woke the crowd up. 1-0.


HT: Iran 1 v 0 Kyrgyzstan
Half Time Stats (http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r74/peth999/Commentators%20Curse/Asian%20Nations%20Cup%202011%20Qualifiers/5thvIranhalftime.jpg)


Kyrgyzstan try some quick, short passing at the start of the second half, but it is the good old long ball that gets them back in the game. Lui punts the ball downfield, Bill gets onto the end of it and he feeds Azeryk on the left edge of the penalty area. He cuts inside before curling a shot into the far post. 1-1.
Mastinho feels he can’t continue and is subbed off.
Iran come back at Kyrgyzstan though and Lui can only parry a shot from the edge of the area after an hour. The first to react is an Iranian forward who buries the ball into the net. 2-1.
Azeryk is subbed after 72 minutes.
Kyrgyzstan start to push to far up the field in search of an equaliser and all the space to run into is a dangerous tactic. So it proves as an Iranian forward races onto a ball over the top, rounds Lui before slotting home. 3-1.
McNeil almost got one back straight away with a fierce shot just over.


FT: Iran 3 v 1 Kyrgyzstan

Pre Match (http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r74/peth999/Commentators%20Curse/Asian%20Nations%20Cup%202011%20Qualifiers/5thvKuwaitprematch.jpg)
Again just 5 superstars line up for Turkmenistan, with Luke Swinson on the bench for them. The captain and key man is Hermandinho.

My Opinion
A win for Turkmenistan will gain secure them qualification to the Finals and I think Turkmenistan will be able to win this… just.


Gonzalez has the best of the early chances after 16 minutes, his header going just wide of the right post.
Bennitto Hagan makes the Kuwait keeper make a fine save after a direct freekick from the edge of the area.
A quick one-two by Kuwait down the left wing leaves Hermandinho out of position. The ball is crossed in and turned home past De Santiago, but the linesman comes to Turkmenistan’s resuce, ruling it out for offside.
Turkmenistan takes the lead after 29 minutes, Peter Slater swinging in a cross from the right, Gonzalez loses his marker and heads the ball home at the back post to net his 30th goal for Turkmenistan. 1-0.
A harmless long ball by a Turkmenistan defender looks to be safely under the control of the Kuwaiti keeper, but an appalling first touch allows Peter Slater to nip in, take the ball and roll it into an empty net. 2-0.


HT: Turkmenistan 2 v 0 Kuwait
Half Time Stats (http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r74/peth999/Commentators%20Curse/Asian%20Nations%20Cup%202011%20Qualifiers/5thvKuwaithalftime.jpg)
Turkmenistan has dominated the half and are only 45 minutes from qualifying for the Finals.


Bennitto Hagan picks up a yellow early in the second half.
De Santiago has to tip a long range shot onto the bar after 64 minutes.
Swinson comes on after 73 minutes.
Not long after coming on Swinson picks out Gonzalez on the edge of the area, he spins and shoots but the ball cannons back off the left post.
Kuwait get a goal back with 9 minutes to go, Turkmenistan failing to clear a mini scramble and their striker is left with a tap in from 3-4 yards. 2-1.
Kuwait, sensing a chance of an equaliser push forward. With 3 minutes to go De Santiago pulls off a great double save before Bennitto hacks clear to deny Kuwait their equaliser.
Luke Swinson picks up a yellow card in injury time for a cynical foul. Fortunately the resultant freekick comes to nothing.

Pre Match (http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r74/peth999/Commentators%20Curse/Asian%20Nations%20Cup%202011%20Qualifiers/6thvUAEprematch.jpg)
The usual 5 suspects line up for Turkmenistan, with Swinson on the bench again. The captain and key man is Hermandinho.

My Opinion
Dead rubber basically, with both teams already qualified. This game is just to decide who will come top of the table. I think Turkmenistan will edge it.


A quiet start to the game, with both Turkmenistan strikers being well marked out of the game.
De Santiago is eventually called into action, making a smart save at the near post.
Hermandinho picks up a yellow card for a bad tackle after 35 minutes.
Gonzalez misses the best chance of the game so far after 39 minutes. Peter Slater slides the ball across the 18 yard box to him, he beats his man and takes a moment to focus his mind, but his shot is smothered by the sprailing keeper.
Peter Slater forces a good save from the UA.E. keeper at his near post.
Slater then misses a sitter 2 minutes later. Good work from Gonzalez who cuts the ball back to Bennitto, who then plays the ball between 2 defenders for Slater whose first time shot goes miles over the bar.
U.A.E. then almost take the lead in injury time, a close range header is saved by De Santiago.


HT: Turkmenistan 0 v 0 U.A.E.

Turkmenistan takes the lead through Peter Slater, who finds the bottom corner with his shot after a cross from deep by the Turkmenistan right wing back. 1-0.
Peter Slater then doubles the lead, running through the centre and onto a ball over the top before nestling the ball inside the far post. 2-0, 69 minutes gone.
Luke Swinson then comes into the game.
Rest of the game was a calm affair.

9 superstars start for Kyrgyzstan, who need a win to win the group. Bill is the captain and the key man is Gary McNeil. On the bench is Elfdog.

My Opinion
Tajikistan has yet to get a point in this group yet and I don’t expect that to change. Comfortable win for Kyrgyzstan.


Mastinho has an early chance to score but his shot his well blocked by the Tajikistan keeper.
Mick Bubble takes a freekick quickly and passes the ball down the line for McNeil, who crosses to the near post. Bill gets is head to the ball but can only flick it into the side netting.
Azeryk is found by a long ball into the box by Bubble, but his first time shot is sliced wide.
Bill receives treatment on the sidelines for a knock.
Robson controls the ball from a Lui goalkick, runs towards goal before firing a 25 yard shot just over the bar.
Robson sees his long shot cannon back off the bar. Kyrgyzstan keep on piling on the pressure.


HT: Tajikistan 0 v 0 Kyrgystan

Despite the match being completely one sided, Kyrgyzstan can’t find the break through yet.


Bill + Azeryk play a one-two within the 18 yard box, but when the ball returns to Bill, he smacks it against the crossbar.
The breakthrough eventually comes after 52 minutes. Gary McNeil cuts inside from the right wing before unleashing a powerful left foot shot that screams past the keeper. 0-1.
Great play by McNeil down the right wing, he beats his man before supplying a great cross to Bill, but he pulls his shot wide.
Bill has not had the best of games and after 58 minutes he caps it off. He elbows a defender when going up for a header and the referee decides that wasn’t on and shows him the red card. Kyrgyzstan down to 10 men.
Despite being a man light, Kyrgyzstan then go and get a second. Azeryk sprays the ball out to the left, where Mastinho uses his electric pace to sprint past 2 defenders before firing low into the far corner. That’s his first ever goal for Kyrgyzstan, 2-0.
George Robson + Azeryk are subbed after 84 minutes.
Kyrgyzstan get a third after 89 minutes, McNeil supplying non-superstar Ivanov to finish with aplomb. 3-0.


FT: Tajikistan 0 v 3 Kyrgyzstan

Right, thought I would give a little update on how I see things going in the next few days / weeks:

As there hasn't been a massive amount of postings in regard to the internationals, I plan over the next week before FM2008 comes out to speed up the process and plough through the next few months and get the Asian Nations Cup Final Tournament done. As a result, I will probably not concentrate so much on features such as player cam and just provide you with important news / league tables / player stats at timely intervals upto that point.

Once I've posted up the Asian Nations Cup games I will reassess the situation but I think that after doing 5 complete seasons this would be an appropriate time to bring the sign up to a halt. http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

If anyone wants me to / there is enough demand then I could be persuaded to run the game on holiday mode and do brief seasonal updates after that point, just so you know how Kyrgyzstan / Turkmenistan get on in the long term. http://community.sigames.com/customicons/icon14.gif



For anyone who is interested in my FM2008 sign-up, I've already come up with my idea for it and it is a completely different type of game to this one (especially as I think I will be able to do some type of AI experiment within the game as well, using you guys as my guinea pigs http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif ). I tried out my idea on a much, much smaller scale on FM2007 over the past week and it seems to be working really well. All I need before I start it up is for some clever-clogs to make Genie Scout for FM2008 so I can use that to aid the sign-up.


Right, that just about sums it up my thoughts. As we are probably reaching the dusk of this sign up, if you've got any opinions on the sign-up, such as what was good and what wasn't so good, please feel free to comment as I will take your comments / suggestions on board for when I running the next one. http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

The next updates on the game should be up by the end of Sunday, or Monday evening at the worst. http://community.sigames.com/customicons/icon14.gif

Cool beans... as I said earlier, anyone who wants to know about their progress post my projected end date, I will be more than happy to give them a synopsis of their career. http://community.sigames.com/customicons/icon14.gif

Forgot to include in the post above that I will put in place a reservation list nearer the time so people can reserve their spots in the new thread. I would just ask people to put their names down now, but its slightly more complicated than that. http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

The same weekend and Everton manager David Moyes praised his centreback Prof Frink for his solid performances at the back. Prof Frink thanked his manager for the praise.

Mick Bubble was in a weird situation a week later, when the AC Milan full back received praise from his own manager and the opposition manager for the same game. He graciously accepted both sets of praise.

Tuesday 1st February 2011 – Monthly Review for January 2011
Part One - Turkmenistan News


Humphrey Koppers has been criticised for his poor form for Barcelona. Koppers believes this is a tad harsh.

Javier Aguirre has singled out Samaras Taraldo for praise for his form over early January for Man Utd. Taraldo said he was delighted to receive such praise.

Down at Arsenal, Rhys Davies was receiving the admiration of his boss Arsene Wenger for his fantastic performances between the sticks.

Real Madrid bid £15m for Hermandinho of AC Milan. This bid was rejected, but Real Madrid came back with a £18.8m bid and this time AC Milan accepted the offer. Hermandinho agreed terms and on 5th January he signed for them, saying that he was looking forward to the challenge of playing for such an illustrious club. Hermandinho becomes the highest ever paid Turkmenistan player, on £43,500 pw.

Gareth Davies has rejected the offer of a new contract from Arsenal, stating that he felt he deserved better bonuses.

Pablo Gonzalez has rejected the offer of a new contract with Chelsea. He felt that with 18 months of his contract left, a wage cut did not represent his best interests.

Alvaro De Santiago has rejected the offer of a new contract from Inter Milan. He believes he should receive a higher bonus package.

Ulfinus Chaoconov has signed a new 3 year deal worth £2m with Athletico Madrid.

Part Two - Kyrgyzstan News + 'Other' News


On the 7th January Everton received 4 bids for Benj from Arsenal, Chelsea, Sevilla and Valencia. Chelsea offered £21m + Scott Sinclair, whereas the others offered around £12-14 million. Only Chelsea’s bid was accepted and Benj was delighted to agree terms with the blues. Scott Sinclair agreed terms with Everton and the deal went through. Benj now becomes the highest paid Kyrgyzstan player ever, on £40,500pw.

Freealdinho has less than 6 months left on his contract with Man Utd and twice during January he rejected contact offers from Man Utd, stating he wanted higher bounus payments.

Mick Bubble has rejected the offer of a new contract from AC Milan, stating he did not want to take a pay cut at this stage of his career.

A flurry of interest in Zuvzonamin Lui over January led to several offers from clubs such as Schalke, Heerenveen, Barcelona and Torino. Torino was the only one to have their bid accepted (£1.9m), and Lui was delighted to agree terms and said it was a long held ambition to play in Europe.

David Moyes has again praised Prof Frink for his recent form. Frink is in the ‘form of his life’ apparently.

Man City are interested in Wigan’s Azeryk.


For the first time in 4 years, Selim Atas did NOT win the Asian Young Player of the Year Award!!!
He did not even come in the top 3! The winner was Australian David Williams, with Alan coming as runner-up and 3rd place went to Freealdinho.

and finally...


Olympics Games 2012 Asian Qualifiers

As Kyrgyzstan & Turkmenistan performed so admirably in the last event and their World Rankings have gone through the roof in the last 4 years, instead of entering the preliminary round, they now skip that and the 1st KO and enter the competition at the 2nd KO Round. This means that both nations will only have to win KO tie before going into the final group stages to decide who qualifys for the Olympic Games.

In theory all the superstars should play in these qualifiers as they are young enough, although the ability of the country's new managers may dictate whether that happens or not!!

Selected 2nd KO Round Ties
<pre class="ip-ubbcode-code-pre">
Kyrgyzstan v Iraq or Brunei or Bhutan - Where Iraq will play the winner of Brunei v Bhutan

Turkmenistan v India or Laos or Guam - Where India will play the winner of Laos v Guam
</pre>

The 2nd KO Round ties will be played in September 2011 (After my proposed end date, so only a brief low-down on the games may be given).

Both teams should beat any of those teams with ease.


That wraps it up for tonight's updates... oh, if you insist, one more update... http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Group Stage Draw

Top 2 qualify from each group for the Quarter-Finals:

<pre class="ip-ubbcode-code-pre">
Group A Group B
China (33rd) Iran (28th)
Kuwait (65th) Japan (43rd)
Qatar (37th) Kyrgyzstan (32nd)
South Korea (31st) Uzbekistan (48th)

North Korea (56th) Indonesia (88th)
Oman (76th) Saudi Arabia (41st)
U.A.E. (58th) Turkmenistan (24th)
</pre>


Both nations have been unfortunate with their draws, with both Groups B & D probably the toughest to qualify from. Still, both Kyrgyzstan & Turkmenistan have the potential to beat any team in this tournament.

That really does conclude the update for tonight, more to come at various points throughout the week hopefully. http://community.sigames.com/customicons/icon14.gif

I'm interested in your new signup as well, if you have more info on it, I may very well be tempted to give it a go.

Hermandinho's looking good. Key player for Turkmenistan, though the move to Real Madrid is a bit of a surprise to me. I sort of thought that that 5yr deal meant that Hermandinho had found his true dream club, in the way that many of these wonderkid players seem to be exceedingly loyal to their clubs. I kinda doubt the wisdom of switching to such a lowly placed Madrid, though the games played in Milan may have something to do with it.

After praising Prof Frink last month, David Moyes has come out and criticised his partner at the back Turkus Mendieta for a couple of poor games during the last month.

Samaras Taraldo has been rewarded for his good form this season by signing a new 4 year contract with Man Utd worth £13m, which works out at £50,000 per week, thus making him become the highest paid player from either Kyrgyzstan or Turkmenistan.

Luke Swinson has dislocated his jaw and will be out of action for most of March.

Ghoolbi Dumats is wanted by Aston Villa.

Azeryk is wanted by Man City.

Freealdinho has twisted his knee and will be out for up to 3 more weeks. He has still yet to sign a new contract with Man Utd.

Hugo Sanchez has left Calgari to become the new manager of PSG. However, it wasn’t long before Ryan had a new permanent boss, with Sven Goran Eriksson joining the club just 3 days later.

Jacariah Birkinaldo is currently tutoring Dumitru Ionescu, a young Romanian centre back who has just joined Liverpool.

Prof Frink has twisted his ankle and will be out for the whole of April possibly.

With no new contract being offered from Man Utd, Tottenham and Bayern Munich are starting to become interested in Freealdinho.

Rhys Davies has again been praised by Arsene Wenger for his good form between the sticks. Rhys Davies has said that he is under no illusions though, he feels he can improve further on his current form.

Gareth Davies is currently recovering from a groin strain. He is out of action for a further week.


The World Rankings for March were released and neither Kyrgyzstan or Turkmenistan changed their place in the rankings.
The top 5 are currently Brazil, Germany, Spain, United States of America and Argentina. Yes that is right, the United States are ranked 4th in the world!!! http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif

All those games are the Real Madrid ones, you played 10 matches at AC Milan earlier in the season at an average rating of 8.10!!! http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

Competition for places at centreback at Real Madrid is quite tough. There is Vidic, Boulahrouz, Metzelder, Ramos (though he mainly plays at RB) and a young regen. There seems to be quite a bit of rotation among the centre backs though.

Sunday 1st May 2011 – Monthly Review for April 2011


Freealdinho has rejected yet another contract offer from Man Utd. With 2 months to go until it expires, it looks like he is set to move on.

Javier Aguirre has come out with praise again for Samaras Taraldo, who has responded in agreement about his recent good form.

Javier Aguirre has not been saving the praise just for his own players. He has also complimented Benj of Chelsea for his excellent performance (8 rating, MOM) in their recent 2-2 draw. Benj snubbed this praise.


With 2 games of the English Premiership still to go, both Middlesbrough and West Ham have been relegated.
At the other end of the table Liverpool lead Arsenal by one point going into the last 2 games, but Arsenal have the easier of the remaining fixtures:
<pre class="ip-ubbcode-code-pre">
Penultimate Weekend Final Weekend
Arsenal v Leeds (10th) Blackburn (15th) v Arsenal
Newcastle (3rd) v Liverpool Liverpool v Man Utd (12th)
</pre>
The shock of the season though could be that Chelsea and Man Utd BOTH miss out on European football next season!!!

Over in Serie A in Italy, Fiorentina lead Inter Milan by 1 point and Lecce + Palermo by 2 points with 5 games of the season to go. AC Milan are a further 2 points behind in 5th place, so it looks like the title in Italy will also go right to the wire.

In Spain Barcelona lead by 6 points with 4 games of the season to go and look odds on favourites to become champions, with Humphrey Koppers winning a league winners medal in his first season with the Catalan club.


On the European football scene, the Champions League KO stages look like this, with the 2nd leg of the Semi Finals coming soon, with Arsenal and Liverpool both having home matches:

Saturday 21st May 2011 Update


Liverpool has edged Arsenal to the English Premiership by 1 point, despite both teams losing their last games of the season. Alan scored twice a 2-1 win over Newcastle in the penultimate round of games which proved crucial to their title win.

Tottenham (Prem) play Preston (Champ) in the FA Cup Final held on this very day.

Marcus Cook and Charlton have won the English Championship, with Marcus Cook notching 16 goals in 29 games for the champs. Wigan (and maybe Azeryk) will play in the Playoff Final on Sunday 22nd May.

Kyrgyzstan v Turkmenistan
Sat 21st April: The Stanlies Cup 2011 1st Leg


Kyrgyzstan Pre Match Line Up (http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r74/peth999/Commentators%20Curse/The%20Stanlies%20Cup/20111stLegKyrgyzstanprematch.jpg)
Kyrgyzstan field 11 superstars in their 4-4-2 starting line up, with Alan as captain and Jacariah Birkinaldo as the key man. On the bench is Azeryk + Habib Halali.

Turkmenistan Pre Match Line Up (http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r74/peth999/Commentators%20Curse/The%20Stanlies%20Cup/20111stLegTurkmenistanprematch.jpg)
Turkmenistan field 9 superstars in their 3-5-2 starting line up, with Selim Atas as captain and Samaras Taraldo as the key man. On the bench is Luke Swinson, Peter Slater, Turkus Mendieta, Peter Slater + Ulfinus Chaoconov.


My Opinion
The last ever fully publicised Stanlies Cup will mean that both teams should hopefully try to go out with a bang and produce 2 exciting games, especially as they provide great warm up for the Asian Nations Cup in July. I predict Kyrgyzstan to win their home match but Turkmenistan to win the overall tie.


Both sides have early half chances. Ryan sees his freekick go straight at De Santiago, whilst Bennitto sees his header go straight at Elfdog at the other end.
25 minutes gone and Atas forces Elfdog to make a great save to his left after a counter attack by Turkmenistan.
Bill makes a deft header back into the path of an onrushing Ryan but the fullback’s shot goes high and wide.
Hermandinho picks up a yellow card after 41 minutes for holding onto the shirt of Alan.


HT: Kyrgyzstan 0 v 0 Turkmenistan

Half Time Player Ratings (http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r74/peth999/Commentators%20Curse/The%20Stanlies%20Cup/20111stleghalftimeplayerratings.jpg)
The score doesn’t reflect the nature of the game. Plenty of shots for both teams, but yet no-one has broken the deadlock.
Turkmenistan makes 3 changes at halftime, with Koppers + Gareth Davies coming off and Swinson, Slater + Turkus Mendieta coming on. Kyrgyzstan remains unchanged.


Alan sees a 25 yard shot sail narrowly wide of the right hand post just 2 minutes into the 2nd half.
Turkmenistan make a further 2 subs after 60 minutes. Marcus Cook + Ulfinus Chaoconov coming onto the pitch, with Gonzalez being one of the men to make way.
Luke Swinson sees his shot goes miles wide after being played into a great position by Bennitto.
After 72 minutes Kyrgyzstan finally make some subs. Azeryk + Halali coming on for Ryan + Alan. A minute later and Libertinho is subbed for Turkmenistan.
Kyrgyzstan win a freekick on the edge of the area after 80 minutes. After a couple of substitutions with Bill + George Robson making way, David Frketic steps up to take it. It deflects off the wall, but into the path of Azeryk who slots the ball home. But, it doesn’t count… he was apparently in an offside position when the freekick was taken.
A minute later and Elfdog makes a shocking shocking error, only to then cover himself in glory by pulling off a miraculous save. He boots a clearance straight at Marcus Cook, who 15 yards out looks certain to score, but Elfdog pulls off a great recovery save to prevent a goal.
De Santiago is forced to concede a corner from a stinging shot by Azeryk with just 5 minutes to go.
Azeryk sees a long shot go just over the bar during injury time.
Then with the last kick of the game, Azeryk misses one of the best chances of the game, put through by a ball over the top from Benj, he slices his shot and it goes high and wide.

Not too sure how this stayed at nil-nil, as you can see from an inspection of the match stats. Still, leaves it all to play for in the 2nd leg.
MOM goes to Hermandinho for a solid performance at the back.



In other news...

Bayern Munich have won their 7th, yes 7th, consecutive German League Title. Cottbus, where Mastinho was on loan for the season finished 17th and were relegated. Good job he's going back to Lyon then!!!

Preston stunned the footballing world by beating Tottenham 2-1 in the FA Cup Final, thereby claiming a spot in the UEFA Cup next season. Preston lost in the Championship playoff semis this season.

Weds 25th May: The Stanlies Cup 2011 2nd Leg


Turkmenistan Pre Match Line Up (http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r74/peth999/Commentators%20Curse/20112ndlegTurkmenistanprematch.jpg)
Turkmenistan start the 2nd leg with 9 superstars on the pitch in a 3-5-2 formation, with Selim Atas as captain and Samaras Taraldo as key man. On the bench are Marcus Cook, Peter Slater, Ulfinus Chaoconov, Luke Swinson + Humphrey Koppers.
Kyrgyzstan Pre Match Line Up (http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r74/peth999/Commentators%20Curse/20112ndlegKyrgyzstanprematch.jpg)
Kyrgyzstan field the same starting line-up as from the 1st leg, so 11 superstars start in a 4-4-2 formation. On the bench are Azeryk + Habib Halali. The captain is Alan and the key man is Jacariah Birkinaldo.

My Opinion
The first leg was very tight and this game will probably be the same, but I think Turkmenistan may edge it with home advantage.


David Frketic has the first close chance of the game, cutting in from the left flank before curling a shot just wide of the far post from outside the area.
Gonzalez forces Elfdog to tip a ferocious shot over the bar.
Mick Bubble runs down the right flank, plays the ball inside to Benj, who slides the ball intot he box for Alan, who hits a 1st time shot past De Santiago to give Kyrgyzstan the lead and a vital away goal. 0-1
Turkmenistan get right back into the game though, Birkinaldo was out of position which left Atas plenty of time and space to compose himself when he received the ball from Gareth Davies, before slotting it home past Elfdog. 1-1, 32 minutes gone.
Kyrgyzstan then go up the other end and score again. A lovely flowing move involving Benj, Bill + Gary McNeil, resulting in the latter crossing for Alan who glanced his shot past the keeper. 1-2, 39 minutes gone.

Half Time Player Stats (http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r74/peth999/Commentators%20Curse/20112ndleghalftimeplayerratings.jpg)
What a difference from the 1st leg, both teams find their scoring boots.
Several substitutions at half time:
Turkmenistan make a triple substitution, with Swinson, Chaoconov and Slater coming on, with Gareth Davies the only superstar being replaced.
Kyrgyzstan make 1 sub as Halali comes on for Frketic as they change to a 3-3-2-1-1 formation.


Quiet start to the second half.
Turkmenistan make further changes with Marcus Cook + Koppers coming on, with Gonzalez + Turkus Mendieta making way after 58 minutes.
A couple of minutes later and Kyrgyzstan make 2 subs, Alan + McNeil coming off and Azeryk being brought on.
Benj makes a great interception just inside the Turkmenistan half, powers forward towards goal and unleashes a 30 yarder, which hits the outside of the post and goes out for a goalkick.
Azeryk collided with Hermandinho and the striker picked up a knock but can carry on.
Game on! 13 minutes to go and Peter Slater passes forward to Bennitto who spins on the ball and scores with a first time shot. 2-2.
Azeryk holds onto the ball for too long and loses possession, the ball is played forward to Peter Slater who drives forward who shooting just wide of the target.
Kyrgyzstan slow the game down and play for the final whistle.

Kyrgyzstan lead 4 to 1 against Turkmenistan in number of wins.



In other news…

The reason why Rhys Davies wasn’t involved in The Stanlies Cup this year is because Arsenal wanted him to play in the Champions League Final, which was held today between Arsenal and Liverpool.

In a mini repeat of the UEFA Cup final, the Champions League Final was won by Arsenal, beating Liverpool 5-3 on penalties after a 1-1, with Rhys Davies starting and playing throughout in goal for Arsenal.

Thursday 1st June 2011 – Monthly Review for May 2011


The World Rankings for May were released pre-Stanlies Cup. With hardly any changes in the Top 30, with Turkmenistan moving up one palce to 20th and Denmark moving down a place to 21st.

Despite Wigan winning the Chmpionship playoff final, Azeryk has spoken to a reporter outside the club’s training ground and stated his ambition to play for a bigger club in the near future. A few days later he rejected a new contract offer from Wigan and looks to be on his way out.

Great news for the Liverpool lads Alan + Birkinaldo. Both have been handed new contracts with the club, Birkinaldo putting pen to paper on a new 3 year £5m contract, with Alan signing a £9m contract which will keep him at the club for 4 seasons.

Despite Serie A being so close with a handful of games to go, Inter Milan romped the last 5 games to win the league by 2 points from Fiorentina and by 7 points from 3rd placed Palermo. AC Milan sneaked 4th place on the last day of the season. Lecce, who were just 2 points off top spot and in 4th with 5 games to go had a miserable end to the season, picking up 2 /15 points and dropping to 7th.
Both Alvaro De Santiago + Gary McNeil pick up winners medals for being the League Champions.

Great update WW, Long will the Stanlies be remembered. The final one might have been the best.

I see that Elfdog still has the best match rating for any of the Kyrgyzstan players, woo hoo. More playing time would have been a lot better, but with Lui hurt, could get all I need during the Asian Tournament.

Fantastic end to the season for both Liverpool and Krygrystan, with Alan being integral to both http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif.

The winning goals to win the Premiership and the double that got us the Stanlies Cup on aggregate, great performance by the teams http://community.sigames.com/customicons/icon14.gif.

Will reserve my slot now.

Well, I can exclusively reveal...

1) It's a sign-up.

2) It won't be the same format as the current one.

3) From my mini tests I've already run, the country you have chosen to be associated with plays an important part of the sign-up.


Good enough for you?! http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif


(As soon as SI release a patch I will post the new thread, so hopefully you won't have to wait too long.)

Friday 1st July 2011 – Monthly Review for June 2011

At the start of the month Freealdinho received contract offers from Fiorentina and AC Milan. He also received one final offer from Man Utd which he declined. After a few days to weigh up his options, Freealdinho decided to join AC Milan on July 1st.

Now that Man Utd is a striker down, they turn to Freealdinho’s fellow countryman Azeryk. They make a £12.75million bid, which Wigan initially stalled on, before accepting it. Azeryk wastes no time in agreeing terms and will sign for Man Utd on July 1st.

Gary McNeil signs a new 3 year deal worth £3million with Inter Milan.

AC Milan, Lazio & Juventus have all made bids for Ryan, varying from £6.5 - £10 million. All 3 bids have been rejected.

Pablo Gonzalez is attracting interest from the managers of Aston Villa and Bolton. However, only one offer has been made for the lad – a player exchange with Juventus.

Pompey manager Stoichkov has hit out at PSG for expressing an interest in Ghoolbi Dumats. He said that Dumats is going nowhere.

Arsenal, Real Madrid & Lazio have all made £30+ million bids for Selim Atas. All 3 bids were turned down by Athletico Madrid. The Athletico boss has ruled out a sale, saying that he wants his young protégé to gain more experience at his club before moving on.

5 clubs have made a bid for Gareth Davies, including Marseille, Lyon and Newcastle. They have all been rejected so far. At the end of the month Lazio make a £16m bid which has yet to be decided upon.

After a good season for Barcelona, the vultures have coming snooping around Humphrey Koppers and his generous £25million min fee release clause. Liverpool has made a £14m bid, Inter Milan have bid £21.5m and Man Utd £23.5m.


Real Madrid’s Robinho has won the European Golden Boot Award this season, scoring 26 league goals.


The World Rankings for June were released in the middle of the month and absolutely none of the nations changed their positions.

Friday 15th July 2011 – Look ahead to the Asian Nation Cup

Lazio came back in with a £11m bid for Ryan, which was accepted. Ryan agreed terms and moved to Lazio ahead of the start of the tournament.

Roma has made a £8.5m bid for Habib Halali, which has been accepted by Aston Villa.

Mick Bubble has turned down an offer of a contract with AC Milan. He feels he deserves a better basic salary and should be regarded as a more prominent member of the AC Milan squad.

Lui has signed a new 3 year contract worth £2.5m with Torino.

All bids for Koppers have been rejected.

A flurry of bids have been made for Pablo Gonzalez. Jventus, Real Madrid, Barcelona and Bayern Munich have all made bids between £24-26m for the lad who is currently listed in the Chelsea reserves. All of these bids have been accepted by Chelsea.

Ulfinus Chaoconov has turned down a new contract with Athletico Madrid, stating that he wants a bigger bonus based on 1st team appearances.

The agent of Bill has announced to the press that his player is ‘over the moon’ at signing a new 5 year contract with Lazio. Bill will now be on £40,500pw.



Asian Nations Cup 2011 Call Ups

Kyrgyzstan has called up all 16 superstars for the competition. Mastinho will miss the first half of the tournament though, as he has been laid low by a virus and will bed riddern for 2 weeks. Bill will also miss the first half of the competition, as he is suspended for 3 matches after picking up a red card back in October 2010 (the last competitive game for Kyrgyzstan) against Tajikistan.

Turkmenistan has called up 15 superstars for the tournament. Turkus Mendieta misses the tournament after picking up a twisted ankle very recently. He will be out for 2-4 weeks. Hermandinho is suspended for the first match of the tournament after picking up 2 yellow cards during the qualifying tournament.

With Kyrgyzstan in Group B and Turkmenistan in Group D, To act as a reminder here are the forthcoming group fixtures:
<pre class="ip-ubbcode-code-pre">
Mon 18th: Kyrgyzstan v Uzbekistan
Tues 19th: Turkmenistan v Australia

Fri 22nd: Kyrgyzstan v Japan
Sat 23rd: Turkmenistan v Saudi Arabia

Tues 26th: Kyrgyzstan v Iran
Weds 27th: Turkmenistan v Indonesia
</pre>


The highest ranked Asian Nations going into the tournament are:
<pre class="ip-ubbcode-code-pre">
20th Turkmenistan
23rd Australia
25th Iran
27th Kyrgyzstan
28th South Korea
32nd China
36th Qatar
</pre>

If both nations can get out of their groups then they have a great chance of going all the way and possibly meeting in the final - what an epic way to end this sign up that would be!!! http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Kyrgyzstan v Uzbekistan
Mon 18th July: Asian Nations Cup 2011 Group Stage


Pre Match (http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r74/peth999/Commentators%20Curse/Asian%20Nations%20Cup%202011/vUzbekistanprematch.jpg)
Kyzgystan field 11 superstars in their starting line-up, with Alan as captain and key man. The performances of Elfdog in the recent Stanlies Cup has obviously impressed the Kyrgyzi manager as he keeps his place in goal ahead of Lui. On the bench is Lui, Freealdinho + Halali.

My Opinion
Probably the easiest game of the group fixtures, but this isn’t straight forward. I predict a narrow Kyrgyzstan win.


Kyrgyzstan have the first shot on goal, Azeryk shooting over the bar after 90 seconds.
Deadlock is broken after just 4 minutes and its David Frketic with a 20 yard curling freekick who breaks it. Great start, 1-0.
Benj almost doubles the lead, but his close range header after 20 minutes flashes wide of the post.
Kyrgyzstan continue to pile the pressure on, but their lack of shooting accuracy is evident from the half time stats.


HT: Kyrgyzstan 1 v 0 Uzbekistan
Half Time Stats (http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r74/peth999/Commentators%20Curse/Asian%20Nations%20Cup%202011/vUzbekistanhalftime.jpg)


It’s not until the 70th minute that there is another serious attempt on goal. It’s almost worth the wait though as Alan lets fly from 25+ yards, only to see his shot whistle just over the bar.
73 minutes gone and Freealdinho replaces Azeryk.
His impact is instantaneous, as Gary McNeil plays the ball through to Freealdinho, who jinks past a man before sliding the ball past the keeper. 2-0.
Halali replaces Ryan.
It just gets better and better. 79 minute gone and another goal. This time Benj plays the ball out left to Alan, who dinks a ball to the back post where Freealdinho is running in to head the ball past the keeper and make it 3-0.
Benj is then subbed.
The rest of the game was a calm affair as both sides knew what the outcome of the game was going to be.


FT: Kyrgyzstan 3 v 0 Uzbekistan

Turkmenistan v Australia
Tues 19th July: Asian Nations Cup 2011 Group Stage


Pre Match Line Up (http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r74/peth999/Commentators%20Curse/Asian%20Nations%20Cup%202011/vAustraliaprematch.jpg)
It's all change from the Stanlies Cup games for Turkmenistan as 8 superstars start for them, but with the back 6 looking quite different. The captain is Selim Atas and the key man is keeper Rhys Davies. On the bench is Alvaro De Santiago, Humphrey Koopers, Ulfinus Chaoconov, Marcus Cook, Luke Swinson + Peter Slater.

My Opinion
A tough opener for Turkmenistan and it’s a repeat of the World Cup 2nd round tie, which Australia won 1-0. I think this game will be a draw though.


Australia almost takes the lead after just 2 minutes. David Williams is left in miles of space and closes in on goal, only to see his audacious chip effort go inches wide of the Turkmenistan goal.
2 minutes later and Williams again loses his marker, this time forcing a great save from Rhys Davies, but the ball falls to Tim Cahill who smacks the ball into the empty net. 0-1.
Bennitto Hagan is fed through the centre of the pitch by Pablo Gonzalez, but his shot goes straight at the Aussie keeper.
5 minutes later and Bennitto is at it again, intercepting the ball before powering past a defender only then to calmly score into the bottom corner. 25 minutes gone, 1-1.
Australia then come back at Turkmenistan, but several of their shots are off target.
Just as the half was coming to an end, the Aussies go down to 10 men, their defender hacking down Gonzalez on the edge of the area as he was through on goal. The freekick came to nothing though.


HT: Turkmenistan 1 v 1 Australia
Half Time Stats (http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r74/peth999/Commentators%20Curse/Asian%20Nations%20Cup%202011/vAustraliahalftime.jpg)


Last gasp defending from Turkmenistan as Australia up the ante at the start of the second half by spraying ball around the pitch. Libertinho makes a cracking on the line clearance to prevent a goal.
David Williams is put through on goal for Australia, but his shot goes just past the far post. Golden chance that.
Atas has a crack from a tight angle after 70 minutes, but the shot goes over the bar.
Double substitution for Turkmenistan after 71 mintues, with Dumats + Gareth Davies coming off and Peter Slater entering the fray.
Rhys Davies makes a fine save at his near post after 75 minutes.
The Turkmenistan fans erupt. A clearance to the halfway line by the Aussie keeper falls to Peter Slater. At first it seems nothing will come of it, but the defenders are drawn away by good runs by the Turkmeni forwards, leaving Peter Slater a free run in on goal, before smashing it past the onrushing keeper. 2-1.
Luke Swinson is brought onto the pitch after that goal.
Within 5 minutes of coming on Swinson found himself with a golden opportunity of stretching the lead, but pulls his shot wide from 15 yards out.
However, that vital third goal came only a couple of minutes later. Peter Slater picking out Atas on the edge of the area, who in turn found the bottom left corner of the goal. 3-1 and only 6 minutes to go.
In injury time Rhys Davies pulls off a point blank save to deny a close range volley from the Aussies.


FT: Turkmenistan 3 v 1 Australia
Match Overview (http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r74/peth999/Commentators%20Curse/Asian%20Nations%20Cup%202011/vAustraliamatchoverview.jpg)
Player Stats (http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r74/peth999/Commentators%20Curse/Asian%20Nations%20Cup%202011/vAustraliaplayerstats.jpg)
A fantastic smash and grab win for Turkmenistan. Australia may feel aggrieved for not getting anything out of the game, but Turkmenistan won’t care. Bennitto gets the MOM award for his dominating midfield performance.

Great win for the Turkmeni! Probably hardest match in the group and taking a win from Australia will be a good step in qualifying for the next round. 3-1 also means that the vital goal difference stat is looking good just in case.

btw, 12 vs 18 shots on goal... Must've been a fun game to watch!

Japan v Kyrgyzstan
Fri 22nd July: Asian Nations Cup 2011 group Stage


Pre Match Line Up (http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r74/peth999/Commentators%20Curse/Asian%20Nations%20Cup%202011/vJapanprematch.jpg)
It’s the same starting side for Kyrgyzstan as the one that faced Uzbekistan, with Alan as key man and captain. On the bench is Lui, Freealdinho + Halali.

My Opinion
A tougher game this for Kyrgyzstan, but a win would pretty much guarantee a palce in the Q-Finals. I think they might just snatch a win as well.


2nd minute of the game and Birkinaldo picks up a yellow card for a push. He’s got a long way to last in the game now on a yellow card.
A lacklustre start to the match, with no teams posing a real threat on goal in the first half hour. Kyrgyzstan ahd a few shots, but all miles off target.
Alan has the first real shot on goal, forcing a good save out of the keeper from a tight angle after 32 minutes.


HT: Japan 0 v 0 Kyrgyzstan
Half Time Stats (http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r74/peth999/Commentators%20Curse/Asian%20Nations%20Cup%202011/vJapanhalftime.jpg)


The game gets a goal that could bring it to life after 48 minutes. The Japanese right back makes a complete hash of a clearance and Alan is there to pounce and smacks the ball home with glee from 6 yards out. 0-1.
Azeryk is then replaced by Halali as Kyrgyzstan change to a more defensive formation.
Alan + Gary McNeil link up and make a good one-two, resulting in Alan firing a shot straight at the keeper.
McNeil is subbed after 64 minutes.
Japan get their equaliser after 69 minutes and a soft one it is. Japan play a short corner and the resultant cross in the box goes too close to the goal. That is until David Frketic at the near post decides to miss-hits the clearance into his own net. 1-1.
Halali runs down the left, plays the ball inside to Alan who curls the ball towards the top corner but the ball goes just over the bar.
Mick Bubble is subbed after 77 minutes.
In a rare forward foray Japan attack down the right wing before putting in a delightful cross that is met by the head of Takahara. Fortunately it is straight at Elfdog, who tips the ball over the bar.

Player Stats (http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r74/peth999/Commentators%20Curse/Asian%20Nations%20Cup%202011/vJapanplayerstats.jpg)
Japan are fortunate to get anything out of this game and Kyrgyzstan failed to take their chances and book themselves for certain a place in the next round.
Gary McNeil gets the MOM award for the 2nd game in a row.

Saudi Arabia v Turkmenistan
Sat 23rd July: Asian Nations Cup 2011 Group Stage


Pre Match Line Up (http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r74/peth999/Commentators%20Curse/Asian%20Nations%20Cup%202011/vSaudiArabiaprematch.jpg)
With Hermandinho back from suspension he is the only change in the starting line up, as Turkmenistan now field 9 superstars in their starting line up. The captain is Selim Atas and the key man is Samaras Taraldo. On the bench are Alvaro De Santiago, Humphrey Koppers, Luke Swinson, Ulfinus Chaoconov, Marcus Cook + Peter Slater.

My Opinion
Saudi Arabia are lining up 4-1-4-1 so won’t be easy to break down, but I think Turkmenistan to just shade this one and to qualify for the next round.


Turkmenistan almost take the lead within a minute of play, Selim Atas firing over when one-on-one with the goalkeeper.
Saudi Arabia almost take a fluke lead when a overhit cross from deep on the right finds itself towards goal until Rhys Davies tips the ball over the bar.
The crowd waited 16 minutes, but Turkmenistan have their first goal. Atas slipping the ball onto Gonzalez who takes it in his path before placing it in the bottom corner past the keeper from a central position. 0-1.
Rhys Davies pulls off a great save to his left just when it looked that Saudi Arabia had unlocked the Turkmenistan defence with a reverse pass through ball.
Rhys Davies is called into action again just as half time comes around, palming a shot out leaving Libertinho to hack the ball clear.


HT: Saudi Arabia 0 v 1 Turkmenistan
Half Time Stats (http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r74/peth999/Commentators%20Curse/Asian%20Nations%20Cup%202011/vSaudiArabiahalftime.jpg)
Saudi Arabia are knocking on the door for an equaliser and Turkmenistan will have to wake up in the second half.


Well I wasn’t expecting that. Turkmenistan double their lead after 54 minutes, Ghoolbi Dumats floating a 25 yard freekick into the top left corner of the goal. Fantastic freekick and that’s his first ever goal for Turkmenistan. Just what the doc ordered as well, 0-2.
Saudi Arabia then make sure the Turkmenistan don’t fall to sleep, hitting the side netting within 10 seconds of the restart.
They were making enough noise and eventuall it came. Saudi Arabia with a freekick on the left wing which is floated to the back post where it is headed in. 1-2 and an hour gone.
Taraldo picks up a yellow card for a foul.
After 69 minutes a double substitution. Peter Slater + Koppers on for a non-superstar and Gareth Davies.
Atas barges his way through the centre of 2 defenders before making the keeper produce a fingertip save to deny him.
Swinson comes on for Libertinho after 78 minutes.
6 minutes to go and Dumats gives away a foul in a dangerous position 20 yards out and fairly central. He receives a yellow card for that and has Rhys Davies to thank for another good save, this time to his right to deny the Saudis an equaliser.
Again it’s Rhys Davies to the rescue. Taraldo takes a terrible touch in his own box and the Saudi striker pounces only to be again denied by the flying keeper.
Slater almost scores with a glancing header in injury time from a freekick near the corner flag.
Turkmenistan desperately defend the final few moments, booting the ball anywhere that is relatively safe.


FT: Saudi Arabia 1 v 2 Turkmenistan

Rhys Davies unsurprisingly gets the MOM award for a heroic effort in the Turkmeni goal.

Turkmenistan have qualified for the knockout stages as with Australia v Saudi Arabia in the last round of matches, it is not possible for Turkmenistan to not qualify. Also with Indonesia looking like the whipping boys of the group, the team will be looking for 3/3 wins.

Right, now that birdy has signed up I think I will now close this reservation malarky as I think virtually everyone who has been following this sign up recently has signed up now. http://community.sigames.com/customicons/icon14.gif

Thanks for all of you signing up again, shows to me that you've liked this sign-up and want to be a part of the next one and it also means that with only 9 spaces left, my new sign-up won't be full of just newbies. http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif


Just to give you a bit more of a tease about the new sign up, (now none of you are allowed to change your country after this http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif) but I think the people who signed up for Greece probably have made the best choice and Ukraine the worst choice. Although saying that, that could completely change depending on the nationality of your man and how high you lever their reputation. Oooooooooooooooh, thats got you thinking. http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Iran v Kyrgyzstan
Tues 26th July: Asian Nations Cup 2011 Group Stage


Pre Match Line Up (http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r74/peth999/Commentators%20Curse/Asian%20Nations%20Cup%202011/vIranprematch.jpg)
It’s the same line up for the 3rd game in a row for Kyrgyzstan, with Alan as captain and key man. On the bench again is Lui, Freealdinho + Halali.

My Opinion
Only a draw is needed to qualify, but Kyrgyzstan will want to make sure they finish top so as to avoid Turkmenistan in the next round. I think they will edge it 2-1.


Iran has the first shot, a freekick over the bar from 25 yards.
Azeryk has the first shot for Kyrgyzstan, dribbling around a defender before shooting into the side netting from a tight angle.
Alan shoots twice over the bar in the next 10 minutes.
Iran almost take the lead after 28 minutes. Their forward hits the post after a close range header. The ball rebounds off the post and straight into the arms of Elfdog.
Kyrgyzstan take the lead after 39 minutes, Robson feeding the ball through to an unmarked Azeryk who fires through to the far post. 0-1.


HT: Iran 0 v 1 Kyrgyzstan
Half Time Stats (http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r74/peth999/Commentators%20Curse/Asian%20Nations%20Cup%202011/vIranhalftime.jpg)
Kyrgyzstan have just about edged the half, but it is not all over by a long way.
Despite scoring the only goal of the game so far, Azeryk is subbed at halftime for Halali.


The first real chance of the half falls to Iran on the hour mark. A swift one-two puts their forward in on goal against Elfdog, but the keeper spreads his body well and the ball bounces away for a corner kick.
McNeil is subbed after 61 minutes and 10 minutes later Mick Bubble is subbed.
Iran come within inches of a equaliser. A long ball to the back post is headed just wide with about 15 minutes to go.
Ryan hits a freekick just wide with 10 minutes left on the clock.
Iran’s only chance in the dying few minutes was a hopeful long shot that went well over the bar.

Indonesia v Turkmenistan
Weds 27th July: Asian Nations Cup Group Stage


Pre Match Line Up (http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r74/peth999/Commentators%20Curse/Asian%20Nations%20Cup%202011/vIndonesiaprematch.jpg)
Turkmenistan line up with the same team that played against Saudi Arabia, with 9 superstars starting. Selim Atas is the captain and the key man is Samaras Taraldo. On the bench are Alvaro De Santiago, Humphrey Koppers, Marcus Cook, Luke Swinson, Ulfinus Chaoconov + Peter Slater.

My Opinion
Indonesia has lost both games in the tournament so far and I don’t envisage that pattern changing in this game as well.


Indonesia almost take a shock lead, but Rhys Davies flies out of goal and spreads himself in front of the oncoming striker.
Indonesia infact have the better of the opening exchanges and after 13 minutes they take the lead. Their left mid lets fly from distance and a diving Rhys Davies can do nothing as the shot rattles off the crossbar and into the path of a waiting striker who has no problems tapping in from a few yards out. 1-0.
Gonzalez hits a shot over the bar from 15 yards out after being fed through by Libertinho.
Turkmenistan go in at halftime having not had a shot on target. Words will be said surely.


HT: Indonesia 1 v 0 Turkmenistan
Half Time Stats (http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r74/peth999/Commentators%20Curse/Asian%20Nations%20Cup%202011/vIndonesiahalftime.jpg)


With nothing happening in the first 10 minutes of the second half, the manager makes a change by taking off a defender and bringing on Peter Slater.
The substitution works as well. 66 minutes gone and Turkmenistan are level. Gonzalez beats 2 men by running down the right. He whips in a cross and there is Peter Slater at the near post to power home a header. 1-1.
Turkmenistan then make 2 subs as Gareth Davies + Ghoolbi Dumats are subbed, with Humphrey Koppers coming on and the team going back to a 3-5-2 formation after a brief dabble at 4-1-3-2.
Atas spins his man before firing in a low shot. The keeper gets a hand to it and everyone watches on as it dribbles across the goalmouth and out for a corner.
Indonesia then almost score an own goal in injury time, but the keeper makes a fine save.

Turkmenistan v Japan
Sat 30th July: Asian Nations Cup 2011 Q-Final


Pre Match Line Up (http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r74/peth999/Commentators%20Curse/Asian%20Nations%20Cup%202011/QFinalsvJapanprematch.jpg)
Turkmenistan keep with the same side that drew with Indonesia in their last group game. In a 3-5-2 system, Selim Atas is the captain and Samaras Taraldo is the key man. On the bench are Alvaro De Santiago, Peter Slater, Marcus Cook, Luke Swinson & Humphrey Koppers.

My opinion
A tough game for Turkmenistan, but they know that if they win they will play a team that they have beaten before. Kyrgyzstan could only draw with these guys and I think this game could be headed for extra time. After that, who knows...


Dumats has the first shot of the game, but his freekick goes way over the bar in the 2nd minute.
In what could prove crucial later in the game, Japan has to make a substitution after just 7 minutes, their keeper coming off injured.
Japan break the offside trap after 23 minutes, but the forward wastes the chance and tries an ultra-ambitious chip, which goes miles over the bar.
Gonzalez is played through by Atas, but his left footed shot goes wide of the goal.
Japan are not afraid to pass the ball around, which shows in the possession stats after 30 minutes, Japan leading 58%-42%.
Turkmenistan have to wait until the 3rd minute of injury time to get their first shot on target in the game. Bennitto Hagan playing a one-two with Gonzalez, but his shot goes straight at the keeper.


HT: Turkmenistan 0 v 0 Japan
Half Time Stats (http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r74/peth999/Commentators%20Curse/Asian%20Nations%20Cup%202011/QFinalsvJapanhalftime.jpg)
A very tight game, looks like the first goal could be crucial.
In an interesting move, Japan use their 3rd and final sub during the half time break, Turkmenistan have yet to make a sub.


GOAL! Route one delight for Turkmenistan straight after the restart as Rhys Davies punts the ball downfield, Gonzalez gets the flick on and Atas runs onto it, before scoring past the keeper at the second attempt. 1-0.
Peter Slater replaces Gonzalez just after the hour, as Turkmenistan change to a 3-3-2-1-1 formation.
I mentioned at half time Japan were playing a high risk strategy with their subs and when a Japanese player comes off injured it means that the team are down to 10 men.
Double substitution for Turkmenistan after 74 minutes, mainly involving the non-superstars, but Koppers comes onto the pitch.
Koppers almost scores with his first touch, a long shot that goes just wide.
Japan force a solid block from Rhys Davies at his near post, which goes out for a corner.
A man down, Japan can’t find a way to get an equaliser and Turkmenistan hold on in a tight encounter.

Kyrgyzstan v Saudi Arabia
Sat 30th July: Asian Nations Cup 2011 Q-Finals


Pre Match Line Up (http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r74/peth999/Commentators%20Curse/Asian%20Nations%20Cup%202011/QFinalsvSaudiArabiaprematch.jpg)
Kyrgyzstan field the same starting line again, with 11 superstars taking to the pitch. The captain is Alan and the key man Birkinaldo. Bill has returned from suspension and Mastinho has recovered from the virus that laid him low and both join Lui, Freealdinho + Halali on the bench.

My Opinion
Kyrgyzstan have looked impressive so far this tournament and I think they will edge this game 2-1.


A dream start for Kyrgyzstan. They will a corner after just 4 minutes, Gary McNeil whips it in and Prof Frink leaps and heads the abll towards goal. The keeper saves that shot but can do nothing to prevent George Robson knocking in the rebound. 1-0.
Alan releases David Frketic down the right wing and it looks all set to become 2-0 with Azeryk unmarked at the back post, but his cross fails to beat the only Saudi defender located at the front post.
Prof Frink continues to look dangerous from corners, this time heading over the bar after another corner from the right.
David Frketic is subbed for Bill after just 40 minutes.


HT: Kyrgyzstan 1 v 0 Saudi Arabia
Half Time Stats (http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r74/peth999/Commentators%20Curse/Asian%20Nations%20Cup%202011/QFinalsvSaudiArabiahalftime.jpg)
There has only really been one side in it so far.
At half time Azeryk is subbed for Halali as Kyrgyzstan change to a 3-3-2-1-1 formation.


A quiet start to the second half, Saudi Arabia only shot being a freekick that sailed over the bar.
Gary McNeil is subbed after 61 minutes.
Kyrgyzstan continue to look dangerous, Bill heading just over from a corner after 75 minutes.
Alan could have sealed the game up with 10 minutes to go, but his shot was well saved by the Saudi keeper.
Birkinaldo lives up to his ‘key man’ billing in the 3rd minute of injury time, putting in an outrageous tackle on a Saudi forward just as he was about to pull the trigger when in on goal.


FT: Kyrgyzstan 1 v 0 Saudi Arabia

So George Robson scores the only goal of the game, his 4th minute goal enough to see Kyrgyzstan through to the semis. For that, Robson gets the MOM award.

China v Kyrgyzstan
Tues 2nd Aug: Asian Nations Cup 2011 Semi Final


Pre Match Line Up (http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r74/peth999/Commentators%20Curse/Asian%20Nations%20Cup%202011/SFinalvChinaprematch.jpg)
For the umpteenth game in a row Kyrgyzstan field the same starting 11. Alan is captain and Birkinaldo is key man. On the bench are Lui, Halali, Mastinho, Freealdinho + Bill.
It is worth noting that Birkinaldo is on a yellow card and so picking up a yellow card in this game would mean he would be suspended for the final should Kyrgyzstan make it.

My Opinion
These 2 sides have met twice before, back in 2008 when they shared a victory each. However, I think Kyrgyzstan will win this one, just.


Comfortable first save for Elfdog as the long shot from China is straight at him.
Counter attack by Kyrgyzstan, with Alan releasing Azeryk, but his shot is well saved by the keeper.
28 minutes gone and Kyrgyzstan have the best chance of the game yet. Benj plays the ball out to the left wing where McNeil runs down the flank before playing the ball back inside for Azeryk who has time before picking his spot. Unfortunately he picks the wrong side of the post and it goes out for a goalkick.
In the dying moments of the first half, Robson pulls a left footed shot wide.


HT: Kyrgyzstan 0 v 0 China
Half Time Stats (http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r74/peth999/Commentators%20Curse/Asian%20Nations%20Cup%202011/SFinalvChinahalftime.jpg)
A pretty dull first half. Bill replaces Azeryk at halftime.


Alan tracks back and wins the ball around the halfway line. He then releases Bill into the new open space. He closes in on goal but again the keeper pulls off a good save to deny him.
China come to life after 53 minutes. Their midfielder slots a ball inbetween the 2 centre backs and Han Peng is first to react, slotting it past Elfdog. 1-0.
It gets even worse for Birkinaldo, as 2 minutes later he shoves a Chinese player and gets a yellow card for his troubles – he will now miss the final if Kyrgyzstan get there.
Elfdog does really well to keep Kyrgyzstan in the game on the hour mark, rushing out well to close down the left mid after a great cross field ball led to a promising attack for China.
62 minutes gone and Kyrgyzstan have fluked an equaliser, but they won’t care! Gary McNeil fired a cross in from the left and as the Chinese defender rose with Alan to contest the cross, the defender headed the ball into his own net past his stunned keeper. 1-1.
Alan picks up a knock after 65 minutes but decides to carry on for the short term.
10 minutes later though he comes off as Kyrgyzstan make a double sub. Alan + Gary McNeil come off for Freealdinho + Mastinho. The captaincy is taken over by Bill.
And its captain fantastic that may well have won it for Kyrgyzstan! 3 minutes to go and Freealdinho holds the ball up well with his back to goal, before turning and releasing Bill. His first shot was saved by the keeper, but from a tight angle he managed to squeeze it past the keeper at the 2nd attempt. 1-2.
A frantic last few minutes with the ball being lobbed from one end of the pitch to the other, but crucially no more goals were scored.


FT: Kyrgyzstan 2 v 1 China

Benj wins the MOM award for his fine midfield general’s role, but Kyrgyzstan were lucky there – it could so easily have gone to China that game.

Just to confirm, Jacariah Birkinaldo will miss the final due to suspension.

U.A.E. v Turkmenistan
Tues 2nd August: Asian Nations Cup 2011 Semi Final


Pre Match Line Up (http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r74/peth999/Commentators%20Curse/Asian%20Nations%20Cup%202011/SFinalvUAEprematch.jpg)
Bad news for Turkmenistan as their captain Selim Atas sustained a damaged elbow in the run up to the semi final so is only watching from the stands. Marcus Cook replaces him in the starting line up which contains 9 superstars. The new captain is Hermandinho and the key man is still Samaras Taraldo. On the bench for the game is Alvaro De Santiago, Humphrey Koppers, Peter Slater + Luke Swinson.
A warning that Samaras Taraldo + Ghoolbi Dumats are both on yellow cards, so if either received a yellow card then they would be out of the final if Turkmenistan make it.

My Opinion
These 2 sides have met 4 times before, Turkmenistan winning twice at home and twice drawing at their place. So what will happen on a neutral venue? You have to think Turkmenistan will be too strong for U.A.E. who, ranked at 63rd in the world, were not even fancied to get out of their group!


Gonzalez has the first shot of the game, he took the ball off a defender before dribbling 20 yards and then shooting. His shot was straight at the keeper though.
Marcus Cook picked up a yellow card for a tug on a shirt.
Marcus Cook + Pablo Gonzalez then team up well to set up Bennitto Hagan from 25 yards. His shot is dragged wide though.
A pretty dull first half, the game needs a goal.


HT: U.A.E. 0 v 0 Turkmenistan
Half Time Stats (http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r74/peth999/Commentators%20Curse/Asian%20Nations%20Cup%202011/SFinalvUAEhalftime.jpg)


It takes all of 13 seconds of the second half for Marcus Cook to have the first shot, a dipping long ranger that goes just over the bar.
62 minutes gone and Turkmenistan decide to change things. Gareth Davies + Marcus Cook are subbed and on comes Luke Swinson + Peter Slater.
Libertinho has a curling shot that shaves the left post from distance.
75 minutes gone and Peter Slater swings in a cross from the left, Pablo Gonzalez meets it with his head at the near post, but his header goes inches the wrong side of the post.
With 6 minutes to go U.A.E. have a rare foray forward, but their eventual shot is a weak one, miles wide of the target.
The underdog should never be written off though, as with 4 minutes to go Rhys Davies has to pull out another of his superb saves he’s made this tournament, to deny a U.A.E. player from 10 yards and a clear sight of goal.


90 minutes: U.A.E. 0 v 0 Turkmenistan
Match / Player Stats (http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r74/peth999/Commentators%20Curse/Asian%20Nations%20Cup%202011/SFinalvUAE90minutes.jpg)
Into extra time we go, with both sides having already used all their subs.


92 minutes gone Hermandinho picks up a yellow card for a trip on the opposing forward.


HT ET: U.A.E. 0 v 0 Turkmenistan


In the first minute after the restart, Libertinho released Pablo Gonzalez through one-on-one with the Gk and for all the world it looked as if this was the moment for Turkmenistan. He pulled his shot wide.
2 minutes later and Rhys Davies pulls off another sparkling save to his left to deny the opposition.

To penalties it goes... who will have the greater nerve and courage to see themselves through to a final against Kyrgyzstan:
<pre class="ip-ubbcode-code-pre">
U.A.E. 1st: Scores, sending the keeper the wrong way. 1-0

Libertinho: Cheekily chips it down the centre and scores. 1-1

U.A.E. 2nd: Poor penalty, straight down the centre and straight at the keeper. 1-1

Ghoolbi Dumats: Beautiful penalty, keeper went the right way but it was right in the corner. 1-2

U.A.E. 3rd: Good penalty, sends the keeper the wrong way. 2-2

Luke Swinson: Like watching a replay of the penalty by Dumats. 2-3

U.A.E. 4th: Soft penalty to the left of Rhys Davies and the keeper gets down well to save it. 2-3

Samaras Taraldo: If he scores, Turkmenistan are through to the final...
but he blazes it high and wide. U.A.E. still have a chance. 2-3

U.A.E. 5th: Great penalty under extreme pressure. Top corner, take a bow my man. 3-3

Hermandinho: Up steps the captain with a chance to seize the glory...
he does, the keeper goes the right way but can’t stop the penalty. 3-4
</pre>

Turkmenistan win 4-3 on penalties

Kyrgyztan v Turkmenistan
Sat 6th August: Asian Nations Cup 2011 Final


So here it is, the dream final:
Kyrgyzstan News
Kyrgyzstan Pre Match (http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r74/peth999/Commentators%20Curse/Asian%20Nations%20Cup%202011/TheFinal-Kyrgyzstanprematch.jpg)
Last minute agony for Alan, who damages his heel the day before the final and misses out on the big event. Kyrgyzstan are also without Birkinaldo who is suspended, so 10 superstars start the match, with Bill starting up front. The captain and also key man for the game is Prof Frink. On the bench are Lui, Freealdinho, Mastinho + Habib Halali.

Turkmenistan News
Turkmenistan Pre Match (http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r74/peth999/Commentators%20Curse/Asian%20Nations%20Cup%202011/TheFinal-Turkmenistanprematch.jpg)
Turkmenistan stick with the same line-up as for the semi final. Selim Atas has not recovered enough to play any part of this game. The captain is Hermandinho and the key man is Samaras Taraldo. On the bench are Alvaro De Santiago, Luke Swinson, Humphrey Koppers, Peter Slater + Ulfinus Chaoconov.

My Opinion
F*** knows?! http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
Toss a coin, I haven’t a clue how this final could go, I would have said Kyrgyzstan but they are now missing 2 key players for the final so this is about aas even as possible. I predict penalties!!!
Interestingly, the in-game bookie is very clear in his mind what the result will be after 90 minutes:
<pre class="ip-ubbcode-code-pre">
Kyrgyzstan 9/2
Draw 13/5
Turkmenistan 1/2
</pre>


After a quiet opening 10 minutes, Turkmenistan almost take the lead. Marcus Cook turns Prof Frink and sprints away from him down the left side. He centres the ball for Gonzalez, but his shot goes just wide.
Bill forces Rhys Davies to tip his shot over the bar after 18 minutes.
Goalkick for Turkmenistan, the ball goes up to the halfway line where Gary McNeil wins the header which goes to George Robson. He then slots it through for Azeryk down the left channel who looks up and sees David Frketic hurtling into the box at the back post. He knocks the ball across the 6 yard box and picks him out perfectly, leaving Frketic to knock the ball home. 23 minutes gone, 1-0.
Dumats makes a vital interception at the back post to deny Kyrgyzstan a scoring opportunity.
David Frketic wrestles the ball off a dosing Turkmeni player, he plays it forward to Azeryk who turns and runs at the defence. He beats the first one before going for a deft chip over Rhys Davies. However, the keeper is equal to it, getting fingertips to it to deny him a goal.
40 minutes gone and Elfdog boots a freekick down the right wing which is met by Bill. He attempts a cross, it is deflected, but falls to Robson 25 yards out who takes a pop shot and is only denied by another good save by Rhys Davies.
Bill has a shot from a tight angle which grazes the top of the bar.


HT: Kyrgyzstan 1 v 0 Turkmenistan
Half Time Match Stats (http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r74/peth999/Commentators%20Curse/Asian%20Nations%20Cup%202011/TheFinal-Halftimematchstats.jpg)
Half Time Player Ratings (http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r74/peth999/Commentators%20Curse/Asian%20Nations%20Cup%202011/TheFinal-HalfTimeplayerstats.jpg)
Well I didn’t think it would be this one sided, Turkmenistan should be thankful that they only trail by one goal and not 2 or 3.
Turkmenistan change from their 3-5-2 system to a 4-1-3-2 formation.


Only 4 minutes into the second half and Turkmenistan make 2 changes, 2 non-superstars coming off for Koppers + Slater. Turkmenistan now have 11 superstars on the pitch.
Peter Slater wins a vital header against David Frketic from a Kyrgyzstan corner to deny Kyrgyzstan a great opportunity to score.
64 minutes gone and Marcus Cook hits a weak shot at Elfdog.
72 minutes gone and Libertinho passes to Bennitto, who has split the 2 central defenders perfectly and is in on goal. His shot goes millimetres wide of the top right hand corner of the goal.
Kyrgyzstan then make a couple of changes themselves, Freealdinho + Mastinho replacing Azeryk + David Frketic.
Bill has a long shot parried back out into play by Rhys Davies but it comes to nothing.
Luke Swinson replaces Gareth Davies after 75 minutes as Turkmenistan change to a 4-2-4 formation. Currently they have yet to have a shot on target in the game.
Peter Slater hits a ferocious shot over the bar from 30 yards.
Do I hear a fat lady singing?! Kyrgyzstan win a corner down the left flank, which Gary McNeil takes and floats it to the near post, where Freealdinho is there to head it home. 2-0.
Kyrgyzstan then look to shore up the game, with the only non-superstar in their starting line up being replaced by Halali, who takes over the captaincy role.
Marcus Cook picks up an injury after a strong challenge from Mick Bubble in stoppage time and is forced off the field.
Kyrgyzstan take their time with everything in the closing moments, knowing they are seconds away from becoming heroes in their homeland.

It wasn’t a great game, as only one team turned up to the party and Turkmenistan will be very disappointed that after getting so far they went out in a whimper.
MOM goes to Gary McNeil for his assist and general all round good performance on the left wing.



Kyrgyzstan has won the Asian Nations Cup 2011

So Kyrgyzstan have become the champions of Asia for the next 4 years and with it continue the bragging rights they have over Turkmenistan!

Interestingly though, the World Rankings for August released after the Final seem to suggest that FIFA think Turkmenistan is still the better team... but what do they know eh?!

Awesome man, simply awesome. GO KYRGY, we got the win and ended this thing with the bragging rights.

I am very, extremely interested in both the database, cause I cant seem to get the games to work correctly without it and the save game file if that would be possible. I might even continue it for a while, just to see what might have happened way on down the road.

I loved this and expect that the new sign up will be as good or better. The new one could be outta sight if I am even close as to what you got in mind. Just thoughts and snipets, nothing for certain, but I bet it is the bomb anyway.

Great Job from everyone. See ya all around for the next one.

Is struggling at Inter Milan because he has always been in the shadow of great keepers Toldo and now Ochoa. May want to move in the future.
Inter Milan: Squad rotation

Ghoolbi Dumats (http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r74/peth999/Commentators%20Curse/2011%20Player%20Profiles/GhoolbiDumats.jpg)
After spending some time in Russia, has come alive since he has moved to Pompey and is an important 1st team player. Would not be surprised if he moved to a bigger club in the future.

After a nightmare season at AC Milan, he moved to Barcelona where he has shone.

Aftermoving back in January from AC Milan to Real Madrid, has been looking to cement his place in the 1st team. This season will be crucial for him - a good one and greatness awaits.
Real Madrid: Important 1st team player.

Turkus Mendieta (http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r74/peth999/Commentators%20Curse/2011%20Player%20Profiles/TurkusMendieta.jpg)
Everton: Important 1st team player. Will be looking to form a solid defence with Prof Frink this season.

Moved during the summer from Lazio to Valencia in a £17.5m transfer. Regarded as an important 1st team player. Interestingly his min fee release clause is £17.5m so could easily be poached by someone.

Luke Swinson (http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r74/peth999/Commentators%20Curse/2011%20Player%20Profiles/LukeSwinson.jpg)
After spending last season on loan at Lazio, he is back at Chelsea in the reserve squad. Regarded as a hot prospect for the future.

Liverpool: Hot prospect.

Marcus Cook (http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r74/peth999/Commentators%20Curse/2011%20Player%20Profiles/MarcusCook.jpg)
His move to Charlton last season meant he dropped a division, but as he helped them become champions of the Championship, Charlton will be looking to him to keep them in the Premiership.
Charlton: Indispensable to the club.

Selim Atas (http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r74/peth999/Commentators%20Curse/2011%20Player%20Profiles/SelimAtas.jpg)
Probably the most well regarded player on the world scene after winning the World Player of the Year award a couple of seasons ago. Currently at Athletico Madrid, but bigger clubs seem to be permanently sniffing around him and Atas has shown no desire to discourage his potential suitors. Currently the highest valued Turkmenistan player.
Athletico Madrid: Indispensable to the club.

Pablo Gonzalez (http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r74/peth999/Commentators%20Curse/2011%20Player%20Profiles/PabloGonzalez.jpg)
After spending a season on loan at Juventus, he was then bought by them from Chelsea in the summer for £20m. Is now the highest paid Turkmenistan player on £58,000pw. Is also the most capped Turkmenistan player and is their top scorer as well.

Round Up Part Three - International Tournaments


Olympic Games 2008
Kyrgyzstan - Knocked out in the group stages.
Turkmenistan - Did not qualify.

Kyrgyzstan did well to make the Olympics as the superstars were very young when they made the finals, however being drawn in the same group as Argentina U23s, Italy U23s & Spain U23s meant that they were always facing an uphill battle to get out of that group and it was not really a surprise when they didn't.



World Cup Finals 2010
Kyrgyzstan - Knocked out in the group stages.
Turkmenistan - Knocked out in the 2nd Round.

Probably the one disappointment for both nations, the World Cup 2010 was a bit of an anticlimax. Kyrgyzstan were again in a difficult group with Colombia, Holland & Portugal and finished bottom. Turkmenistan stormed their group and looked set to go far in the competition, before being knocked out by Australia in the 2nd round. However, as the squad is only 22, they should be a dominant force in world football come the 2014 & 2018 World Cups.



Asian Nations Cup 2011
Kyrgyzstan - Winners.
Turkmenistan - Runners Up.

Probably the highlight for both nations, as both sides reached the final of their continental championship in nerve biting ways. It was just a shame that the final did not live up to the pre-match hype. Still, Kyryzstan won't mind.



The Stanlies Cup
2007 - Kyrgyzstan
2008 - Kyrgyzstan
2009 - Kyrgyzstan
2010 - Turkmenistan
2011 - Kyrgyzstan

Well, Kyrgyzstan have absolutely dominated this fairly new competition between the 2 nations, having 4 trophies to Turkmenistan's 1. It certainly seems that Kyrgyzstan seem to have a stranglehold over Turkmenistan when they face each other.



Walcott's Wonderkids Player of the Season

So for the final time, here is my award for the best player of the last 12 months.
The shortlist of 3 for the award are:
Rhys Davies - Won the Champions League with Arsenal and his efforts in the Asian Nations Cup 2011 helped Turkmenistan get to the final.
George Robson - Had a good Int. tournament and really showed his credentials.
Alan - His 19 goals in the league for Liverpool helped them to win the Premiership and his goals in the Stanlies Cup this season helped Kyrgyzstan re-capture the trophy.

and the winner is... Alan.
It was a very tight decision as Rhys Davies had an excellent season for Arsenal and Turkmenistan, but Alan performed at the highest level when needed to for club and country. Hopefully this will go some way to making up up for missing the final of the Asian Nations Cup through injury.


Roll of Honour
2007 – Abdullah Mohammed Ali Obeid
2008 – Azeryk
2009 – Alvaro De Santiago
2010 - David Frketic
2011 - Alan


So there we go, that's it - I hoped you enjoyed it, I've certainly found my first ever sign-up interesting as it has developed over the years.

The door is not fully closed on this sign-up though, as I may come back to this game in the future, holiday the game forward and do very brief seasonal summaries of what happened, but it certainly will be in nowhere near as much detail as what has been done. I think it could be quite interesting to see how the 2 sides got on in future World Cups. http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

And as you can see, not all is lost for the Turkmenistan boys. For in the all-important greed-category of the most mercenary players, the Turkmenistan players are clearly in the lead, having grossed many more pounds in their still young career than their counterparts from Kyrgyzistan.

what a superb sign up and i'm quite upset to see it go, 10/10 for WW for keeping it going strong with wonderful regular updates. With out a doubt in my mind the best sign up in this forum. Also im gutted that Turkmenistan couldn't win the Asia trophy and also that i personally had a quite poor tournament. Nice to see im the top earner mind and the top goalscorer so at least i have something to cheer about.

Commentators Curse Volume One: What Happened Next?

Season 2011/2012


January transfers of note
When the end of December came and David Frketic only had 6 months left on his contract, a flurry of clubs offered him a contract. He decided to turn down Real Madrid and join Newcastle. It will go through on July 1st.

Gary McNeil decided to join Lazio in a £15m transfer.

During January Fiorentina, AC Milan and Lazio all bid for Benj. Despite only signing for the London club the previous summer, the Chelsea board saw an opportunity to make a quick buck and intervened to accept the offers. Benj agreed terms with Lazio and was sold for £22m, a £7m profit for Chelsea in just 6 months!

An unhappy Libertinho always seemed set to move and move he did in January, going to Villareal for £3.7m

Selim Atas surprised most of the footballing world by deciding to stay at Athletico Madrid, signing a new 4 year contract worth £17m, which is £64,000pw – making him the best paid player from either of the 2 nations.

Alvaro De Santiago signed a new 2 year deal with Inter Milan worth £3m.

As the value for Marcus Cook met his minimum release fee clause, several clubs started to bid for him. Reading were the lucky club to get him, signing for £9.75m.

Luke Swinson, who was sitting in the Chelsea reserves, was deemed a prime acquisition from several clubs and many bid for him – but it was Liverpool who got their man, purchasing him for £8.75m.

After failing to agree new terms with Mick Bubble, he decided to jump ship and hook up with ex-team mate Koppers at Barcelona. He will join on a free transfer on July 1st.

League Tables
England - Premiership (http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r74/peth999/Commentators%20Curse/What%20happened%20next/2011-2012/EnglishPremiership.jpg)
Liverpool dominated the Premier League this season, winning by a whopping 17 points! Arsenal scrapped 4th place and again Man Utd & Chelsea are down the pecking order.
Italy - Serie A (http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r74/peth999/Commentators%20Curse/What%20happened%20next/2011-2012/Italy-SerieA.jpg)
Serie A was a really turnaround this season, with none of the traditional ‘big 4’ (AC Milan, Inter Milan, Juventus & Roma) finishing in the top 4! Napoli were the champions, beating Atlanta to the title.
Spain La Liga (http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r74/peth999/Commentators%20Curse/What%20happened%20next/2011-2012/SpainLaLiga.jpg)
In Spain, Real Madrid ran out comfortable winners by 10 points over Barca.

(As at 1st June 2011)
<pre class="ip-ubbcode-code-pre">
England Premiership - 13
Italy Serie A - 11
Spain La Liga - 7
Italy Serie B – 1
</pre>


Who’s hogging the superstars?
It’s fair to say that Lazio is becoming a Kyrgyzstan love-in, as they now possess 5 players from that nation! Look out for them next season possibly dominating.
<pre class="ip-ubbcode-code-pre">
Lazio – 5
Liverpool – 4
Arsenal – 2
Athletico Madrid – 2
Everton - 2
Man Utd - 2
Real Madrid - 2
Others – 1

Olympic Games 2012 Qualifiers
After Turkmenistan beat India 10-0 on agg, they were put in a group with Afghanistan, Bahrain & South Korea.
After Kyrgyzstan beat Iraq 11-0 on agg, they were put in a group with China, Oman & Saudi Arabia.
For the 3 groups, only the winner qualifies for the Olympics.
Qualifying Tables (http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r74/peth999/Commentators%20Curse/What%20happened%20next/2011-2012/OlympicGamesAsianQualifiers.jpg)
As you can see from the tables though, Kyrgyzstan U23s and Turkmenistan U23s were formidable. You will also spot that the ‘stans’ are dominating the youth teams of Asia, with Uzbekistan U23s completing a clean sweep of stan nations qualifying from Asia.
Olympic Games 2012 Group Draw (http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r74/peth999/Commentators%20Curse/What%20happened%20next/2011-2012/OlympicGamesGroupDraw.jpg)
The group stage draw as been made and hurrah, Kyrgyzstan don’t have the group of the devil. Neither do Turkmenistan either, so both teams could be pressing for qualification to the Q-Finals.


World Cup 2014 Qualifiers
Yes, its December 2011 and the World Cup process is underway again. Kyrgyzstan for some reason have been drawn in the preliminary KO round, against no hopers Macau and as you can tell from the 1st leg score, I don’t think Macau will want to visit Kyrgyzstan again!
Macau Game Match Overview (http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r74/peth999/Commentators%20Curse/What%20happened%20next/2011-2012/KyrgyzstanvMacauMatchOverview.jpg)
Player Stats (http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r74/peth999/Commentators%20Curse/What%20happened%20next/2011-2012/KyrgyzstanvMacauPlayerStats.jpg)
Kyrgyzstan won the 2nd leg 3-0.

Anyway, after that farce the draw for the 2nd Round threw up a shock that meant Kyrgyzstan and Turkmenistan were drawn in groups with another big nation. This means that with only the top team progressing to the final Qual round, 2 big Asian teams will definitely not be there.
World Cup 2014 2nd Round Group Stage Draw (http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r74/peth999/Commentators%20Curse/What%20happened%20next/2011-2012/WorldCup2ndQualRoundDraw.jpg)

Not much change to this over the last few months, Kyrgyzstan did move up to 16th during the Autumn, but it has fallen back down since.

Alan is WW's Player of the Season http://community.sigames.com/customicons/icon14.gif I'm honoured for the lad.

His stats looking fine, done fairly well on the international scene (so far).

Made over £3m now too http://community.sigames.com/customicons/icon14.gif.

Liverpool easily winning the title, and the UEFA Cup http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif.

Only 9 starts all season? Could possibly mean an exit from Anfield at that rate. http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

5 Alan goals in the Macau game http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif, and 3rd in Euro Footballer of the Year http://community.sigames.com/customicons/icon14.gif.
