  1. Few notes about the squad, some already made by others: Ayoze Perez: Work Rate should increase from 12 to 14/15, he's only behind Matt Ritchie in distance run for Newcastle so far this season. Can also have his squad status increased to first team as he's started every game. Maybe passing and vision are slightly overrated in game, as he isn't really a playmaker for us. Mohamed Diame: He hasn't started a single game so shouldn't be first team. Also has regressed a little and his stats say that he is one of Newcastle's better players which is clearly not the case in real life, so would suggest a -1 for his passing, technique and dribbling, and -2 for positioning, anticipation, composure and determination. Had a row with Lascelles recently so maybe not part of the core social group? Rob Elliot: Has started every game this season so should be first team, with Darlow as backup. Also think that Agility of 8 is slightly low, maybe push up to 10 as he isn't the most agile of keepers but can still get around fairly quickly. Jack Colback: Like others have said, definitely shouldn't be team leader or part of the core group as he was cut from the squad early August after a row with Benitez and was told to find himself a new club which the rest of the squad seemed to back, so should be transfer listed/Not Needed. Jesus Gamez: Change squad status from Rotation to Backup, hardly played at all last season and is behind both Yedlin and Manquillo for the right back position. Massadio Haidara: Should be transfer listed as was told to find a new club by Benitez, also seems slightly too good atm for someone who has had Gamez, Manquillo and Mbemba play over him at left back even though it isn't their natural position. Joselu: Similar to Perez, think his Work Rate should increase from 8 to 11/12 as he is constantly running when leading the line for us, so much so he's usually knackered and subbed by around 70/75 mins, maybe a similar increase in determination. Javi Manquillo: Has played left back for the last few games and has shown that he's fairly adept in the role, maybe an increase to accomplished for LB. Chancel Mbemba: Also played left back for a couple of games, and shown that he can cover any position in the back four reasonably well, so include left back as accomplished, but slightly worse than right back as he's not as used to playing on the left side. Deandre Yedlin: Firstly, has played right back regularly over the past 18 months since signing him so that should be his natural position now instead of right wing back. Also has improved a lot of his defensive skills under Rafa, becoming first choice right back in a team that conceded the least goals in the Championship last year, and has become more reliable as both a defensive and attacking option, working well with Matt Ritchie. Would suggest an increase of +1 for Anticipation, Crossing, First Touch, Marking, Passing, Tackling and Technique, and a +2 for Concentration, Decisions, Composure and Positioning, to bring him up to a leading Championship right back as opposed to just decent. Other notes are that nobody should be transfer listed at the start of the game except for Colback, Haidara and maybe Saivet. Hope this helps, and if you want any further info or evidence let me know. Edit: Not sure if this also goes in here, but just had a message in game that we're expecting around 29,000 season ticket sales, however we sold 37,000 last season irl and a similar level this season (almost 40,000 quoted by the official website on the first day of the season.)
  2. He performed well for me as a deep lying playmaker, rotating with Shelvey and getting a higher average rating than him. Seemed to concede less with him in front of the defence.

  5. Baptista_8 Vs IWWROCKS kris0710 Vs managerdude_66 Citizen Kane Vs Hodgy Whoopy D Vs AdyTaylor Harryseaess Vs craigcwwe Anti Spiral Vs Scott1892 - Not voting on unless Anti does.
  6. given1legend Vs darren1983 - Provided Bruno Alves doesn't do anything stupid given wins this, Harnik and Srna doubling up on Vermaelen will be too much for him due to Hazard not helping. Gorando Vs RickyButton - Gorando's full backs to win it against a narrow formation. stotty1982 Vs Noob21 - Noob's front three will tear Stotty apart. adhikapp Vs Bliss Seeker - Bliss' attacking midfielders to eventually break down the defence. georginho_juventusygr Vs Reddiablo - George has built a good side but I can't see where the goals will come from, and Red's wingplay will be too much. Andyh21 Vs Cougar2010 - Cougar as Andy voted for himself. And his front three will be too good.
  7. Citizen Kane Vs Whoopy D - Very close game, I reckon that Ozil might just swing the game for CK. kris0710 Vs Baptista_8 - Again close, same formations so comparing the players Baptista comes slightly on top. IWWROCKS Vs managerdude_66 - Bale to be the difference. AdyTaylor Vs Hodgy - Hodgy has the better balanced midfield. Harryseaess Vs Anti Spiral - Gareth McAuley header to win it. Scott1892 Vs craigcwwe - not voting on my own game, unless craig does.

  10. My team has been crippled by losing Marco Reus, and Vardy is good enough to play as a second striker/left winger. IWWROCKS Vs kris0710 Very strong team from IWW, gets the win. managerdude_66 Vs Baptista_8 managerdude pips it, well balanced side. Hodgy Vs Whoopy D Close one, but can see Hodgy's team doing more against Whoopy's defence. AdyTaylor Vs Citizen Kane CK has a better balanced midfield, Ady's will all want to get forward and leave spaces. craigcwwe Vs Anti Spiral I could never vote for craig's defence, would get torn apart by most. I'll abstain from voting on my own game unless Harry votes in it.
  11. How will you watch Euro 2016?

    I'll try to watch all that I can, the 5pm and 8pm games I'll be able to watch with ease, it's just a couple of the 2pm ones that I'm teaching during where I'll struggle, although I'm sure the students won't mind if I put it up on the projector during the lesson.
  12. Euro 2016 Draft Game - Groups A, B and C

    Do we vote for our own games or should we abstain for them?
  13. Surprise, surprise, Sissoko is the first player who wants to jump ship. http://www.skysports.com/football/news/11678/10306443/moussa-sissoko-wants-to-leave-newcastle-and-join-arsenal
  14. Euro 2016 Draft Game - Groups A, B and C

    Igor Denisov is injured and has been replaced, does that mean that Citizen Kane has to replace him?
