  1. Very impressed with the Razor tactic, which has been very successful for my Hellas Verona side in our first season. | Pos | Inf | Team | | Pld | Won | Drn | Lst | For | Ag | G.D. | Pts | | --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------| | 1st | C | Verona | | 34 | 29 | 4 | 1 | 72 | 9 | +63 | 91 | | --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------| | 2nd | Pl | Cesena | | 34 | 19 | 7 | 8 | 59 | 43 | +16 | 64 | | --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------| | 3rd | Pl | Sambenedettese | | 34 | 19 | 5 | 10 | 59 | 39 | +20 | 62 | | --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------| | 4th | Pl | Venezia | | 34 | 18 | 7 | 9 | 46 | 30 | +16 | 59 | | --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------| | 5th | Pl | Padova | | 34 | 17 | 7 | 10 | 50 | 34 | +16 | 58 | | --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------| | 6th | | Cremonese | | 34 | 13 | 17 | 4 | 43 | 26 | +17 | 56 | | --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------| | 7th | | Novara | | 34 | 13 | 14 | 7 | 55 | 49 | +6 | 53 | | --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------| | 8th | | Pro Patria | | 34 | 12 | 10 | 12 | 40 | 42 | -2 | 46 | | --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------| | 9th | | Legnano | | 34 | 12 | 10 | 12 | 50 | 46 | +4 | 46 | | --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------| | 10th | | Ravenna | | 34 | 9 | 15 | 10 | 38 | 43 | -5 | 42 | | --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------| | 11th | | Spal | | 34 | 11 | 9 | 14 | 37 | 45 | -8 | 42 | | --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------| | 12th | | Portosummaga | | 34 | 10 | 11 | 13 | 39 | 41 | -2 | 41 | | --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------| | 13th | | Lecco | | 34 | 8 | 12 | 14 | 32 | 48 | -16 | 36 | | --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------| | 14th | Pl | Pergocrema | | 34 | 8 | 12 | 14 | 32 | 44 | -12 | 36 | | --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------| | 15th | Pl | Reggiana | | 34 | 9 | 6 | 19 | 31 | 49 | -18 | 33 | | --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------| | 16th | Pl | Monza | | 34 | 5 | 8 | 21 | 27 | 55 | -28 | 23 | | --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------| | 17th | Pl | Lumezzane | | 34 | 4 | 9 | 21 | 30 | 59 | -29 | 21 | | --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------| | 18th | R | Pro Sesto | | 34 | 4 | 9 | 21 | 29 | 67 | -38 | 21 | | --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------| | 2 points deducted from Venezia | | | | | | | | | | | | | --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------| As you can see, only conceded nine goals, lost one game and topped the table by 27 points, the 91 total tally being made all the more impressive by the league only lasting 34 games. Also won the Serie C1 Cup, conceding only one goal in the process. Scored a total of 99 goals, conceding just 10 in the season. Very good tactic and I will be sure to keep the thread updated with my future progress as I attempt to make my way up into the Serie A. Had same problem.
  2. I don't know about you but as of the 9.1 (now using 9.2) patch I've had no problems. I myself am not a fan of multiple new features and prefer to see current features improved as the new ones are almost always very rough around the edges first time round but I understand SI have to introduce new features into the game to keep the interest going.
  3. Hardly. Arshavin's hype is based mainly on the Euro, not soley but a lot of people who have never heard of him pre euro have been raving about him like he's some kind of footballing genius. People get too excited over a player shining at an international tournament. A well known player before of course but it is when he came to prominence and everyone started saying what an incredible player he is. His role in Zenit St Petersburg's UEFA Cup run was well noted but still he was something of an unknown quality and hype from the Euro has driven his price up stupidly. That's not me personally, I was well aware of Arshavin and his ability, he is a very able player but it wasn't until the Euro that his price has hiked to a ridiculous amount.
  4. Decent player but I would be very surprised if we were in for him. The age is not the concern as I don't think Wenger is against signing players of a similar age bracket, it's the price. That's not to say we can't afford to pay it, just that Arshavin's price has been over estimated above all proportion following some good performances at the recent European Championship. Wenger's not the type to get over excited about a player after a few good games on the international stage. He's more of a Chelsea signing and if he goes will leave for a club happy to pay well over the odds and be ripped off.
  5. It is indeed an annoyance. I can't see the foul so how am I supposed to know whether it was warranted or not? I recall reading somewhere that you are supposed to go by the mentality of the player who complains about the decision, in order to know whether or not he is telling the truth, but that sounds like a load of bobbins to me. I choose to ignore such questions myself, opting for the Wenger esque 'I didn't see it' response.
  6. Your best bet would be to keep them on the transfer list with an asking price of zero and then hope someone takes pity on you and snaps them up. You might have more luck offering them on loan so you don't have to pay their wages (or at least, not all of their wages.) Alternatively, you could try ****ing them off enough for them to agree to mutually terminate their contract but they usually demand some cash for that.
