  1. Without screens of how all 3 of them have develloped over the years. It isn't possible to say. But most likely you will be better of sending that kind of money on some really talented newgens that will progres and be better than either of them. 3 years into the game I wouldn't spend that kind of money on a player that I wasn't 100% sure would take my team to another lvl with impact results
  2. A bit "funny" Valued at the same bracket as PSG and Real Madrid Owning the Olympic Stadium does magic in that ranking Now to keep reducing the £815m bank loan - only wish that the £19m that the directors took out this year as bonus would have been used to reduce the debt
  3. Well that is it The Capital is at the top, after securing a 3rd Bundesliga title in a row, it was time to take home the big prize Quite a step considering that I/the reserves hadn't made it out of the group stages the two previous years - but they did this year, and afterwards a 2-2 draw against AC Milan in the first knock out game, the full cavalry was sent in for the rest of the campaign
  4. What position are you playing him in, and what players are available at the position, and would the sale of Can be able to finance 2-3 players that would strengthen your team if you lets say play Can at DC and you are able to bring in Stones and one more player that would get into your starting 11, it would IMO be foolish not to sell him
  5. It really depends on what kind of role you are looking to replace, but Thiago is injury prone - Martinez is slow in the first couple of meters, so he would be left for dead if you expect him to cover a lot of ground on his own (think that he is a bit injury prone as well) Sissoko is really just a lesser & cheaper version of Pogba
  6. you should put on the black tie tomorrow not the blue one, and eat oaks for breakfast do not - I repeat DO NOT, eat cereals, anything else you want help with?
  7. Are you seriously asking if you should sell a back up player for £65m???
  8. If any are thinking about buying the Olympic stadium, or is tempted to agree with the board that it would be a great idea for the club to buy the stadium will have to stump up with £916m Just have to pay £2.7m a month to cover that for some 25 years
  9. Taking ownership of the Olympic Stadium in Berlin sets you back £916m I have absolutely nothing to have it in, but isn't that a bit over the top?
  10. It depends Do you need to money to keep the club going? How long time do he have left of his contract? Is he willing to sign a new one with terms that you are willing to honor? Do the young guns that are able to come in and replace him need first team football this season at Marseille to fulfill their potential, or would it be better for them to play backup before being thrown to the wolves etc etc and never, never never give the selling club a sell on fee, the same goes for the player
  11. Starts out in the Benfica B squad, or have done so in my games so far that I can think off
  12. Major transfer movement, Hertha Berlin's Argentine international winger Erik Lamala has left the club and capital and have moved to PSG in a whopping £48.5m straight up transfer deal. Hertha haven't wasted anytime in investing the money in players to strengthen the team. * Brazilian wonderkid Lincoln has been brought in and is in the training getting used to play MR. * The defense have been improved big time by bringing in Danish international defender Andreas Christensen from Chelsea, he had been spending the last two years on loan in the Bundesliga to BMG. * Marc Oliver-Kemp has also been brought in to help the defense. * The last part of the money made from Lamala has been used to bring in German U21 midfielder Arianit Ferati from Stuttgart With the progress of Pulisic and arrivel of Ferati, it was time to say thank you and goodbye to last years player of the year, as Beerens has reached the age of 29 it wouldn't make sense to have him playing backup for Pulisic or even 3rd choice at left wing
  13. Ok there wasn't to be a "Superstar" signing at the start of season 2 - the squad went ahead as it was at the time of the writting In the January window the squad was bolstered with an US/German player as Dortmund "wonderkid" Pulisic was brought in to be understudy to Beerens As the season progressed it became clear that the goal of securing CL football would happen But to challenge Bayern didn't - they got absolutely destroyed by my Hertha side that went on to win the Bundesliga undefeated!!! A massive 14 points clear of the Bayern superpower that had spend £115m ahead of season 2. Resulting them to sacking Ancelotti at the end of the season Weak link Beerens were voted as Bundesliga Players Player of the year (Gino Peruzzi finishing 2nd) I won both Manager of the year awards 7 of the players were in the Team of the year: Entire defense, Peruzzi, Brooks, Wimmer, Hector + 3 midfielders, Lamala, Romero and Beerens- with Brooks dropping out of the Players team of the year, but the rest in "Crazy" concedering that my topscores (Luiz Enrique and Erik Lamala) was joined 13th in the topscorer chart with each 10 goals in the league --- Transfer News: A move for a non Argentina, non Germany have shocked Berlin, as Iver Fossum will make his way from 2nd Bundesliga side Hannover Fans were calmed by the news that another Argentine midfielder also will be joining, as Man City's Bruno Zulini will be joining on a free transfer German U21 striker Johannes Eggestein will be joining from 2nd Bundesliga side Werder Bremen, a move that could see the departure of one of the clubs Argentine strikers as Gabriel Jesus and Luiz Henrique have establed themself as first choice strikers --- In other news the board approached me asking if I thought if it would be a good idea to buy the Olympic stadium, so plans are being made with a buy at the end of next season if things gets through
  14. Latest transfer news Leverkusen decided to put up a £19m offer for Stocker, so he was out the door, opening it for a new Argentine player, Lamala was moved to MR leaving a striking spot available, in came Argentine Lautaro Rinaldi from Argentinos Jrs - he was joined by another Argentine, Lucas Romero from CEC, as Darida was moved to RBL There has been a change of first choice goalkeeper, and no it is not an Argentine, former German U21 Timo Horn was brought in as new nr 1 as his min clause was meet AND it is welcome back to John Brooks, he only played 4 matches for Chelsea, so he was brought back for £5.5m less than he was sold for 6 months ago - so now we have two left footed in the central defense, not ideal, so hopes that it works out, if not then Wimmer must find himself a new club ATM 5 Argentine 3 Germans 1 US/German 1 Austrian 1 Dutch in the starting 11 Roy Beerens being the "weak" link on paper, but he did fine in season 1 Could be room for 1 "superstar" if it appears for the right kind of money, but if not I'm happy with the squad for season 2 Goal - get into the CL directly again - can't see us challenging Bayern just yet
  15. So I came to the end of a rather decent first season as manager for Hertha Berlin Didn't win any trophy's, BUT managed to finish 2nd in the Bundesliga, in no real competition for Bayern for the title, but pleased with the 2nd spot and direct CL football Valentin Stocker became my most important player despite him making a huge fuss about leaving before the season and started the season with a sending off in the 2nd minute in the first game of the Bundesliga. Glad that I turned down the "lowish" offers for him that came in at the start of the game (£4m'ish) as he is now worth £13.25m Bentancur and Duelund have been made into permanent transfers Mas only lasted a season at Hertha despite some good displays from him, as Chelsea came in with a £18.75m offer, so a £15m profit on him for one season, German International Jonas Hector have been brought in for half of that The attack is getting some Brazilian flair next season as the duo of Luis Hernandez and Gabriel Jesus will be joining loads and loads of newgens will be joining Schreiber and Cigerci will be leaving without playing any part of last season
