  1. Wow, congrats on the Euros win! Fantastic achievement - a strange tournament with some minnows making waves, but you can only beat what's in front of you! Great stuff, now for the World Cup
  2. Thanks for the detailed response to my question about foreign players - I really appreciate it! I may have missed it but are you managing the national team or just tracking their results? Would you consider taking up the job if it became available? (Last question for now, I promise ) Giorgetti is looking like a future star, I'd be getting him on a long-term deal with extension options ASAP!
  3. Cheers for the player updates - just out of interest, what is the composition of other teams in the league? Are Italian players treated as non-foreign, and consequently do other teams have mostly San Marino players or Italian players? Good intake too, shame about the personalities though!
  4. Love your work - such an awe-inspiring career! Any chance we could get some screenshots of your best players (and maybe San Marino's best as well)? Keep it up, CL knockouts can't be far away now!
  5. I can't really put my finger on it but this tournament just felt very "generic", if you know what I mean. The quality of football was poor and it didn't really have an element that made it exciting, unique or particularly memorable outside of the Iceland and Wales runs.
  6. Final Portugal 3 - 4 France (Sunday 20:00)
  7. Great World Cup campaign, though the knockout stage loss to Italy brings back some bad memories from 2006 . In fact, your whole campaign was eerily similar to the actual 2006 campaign! First game - 2102: 1-0 win vs Wales - 2006: 3-1 win vs Japan Second game - 2102: 3-2 loss vs Netherlands - 2006: 2-0 loss vs Brazil Third game - 2102: 2-2 draw vs Chile - 2006: 2-2 draw vs Croatia Group standings - 2102: 2nd with 4 points and +2 GD, 2006: 2nd with 4 points and +2 GD Round of 16 - 2102: 4-1 loss vs Italy - 2006: 1-0 loss vs Italy! McGarry's goalscoring record is awesome, what a legend (despite being born in New Zealand) The Asian Cup is 24 teams from 2019 onwards - you have a strange one though, hosted by tiny Guam (who are technically a US territory), and they're not even in the tournament! Your match with Qatar had 700 attendees and your second round game was played at a country club . Odd scheduling too, all Group A teams played on the 19th and then again on the 20th. What a tournament though! 38 goals for, 8 goals conceded in 7 games. Utterly dominant! Great tournament for Johnson too with 17 in 7 . On track to match McGarry! I love that he was born in Mudgee as well, a rural NSW town with less than 10,000 inhabitants. Congrats on the trophy - just the North/South American ones to go then onto Europe! Shame that NZ is still unavailable. I agree with numbas though, looking forward to Nicol's homecoming at Juventus! Keep up the good work - truly brilliant career and save.
  8. Semi-finals Portugal 1 - 1 Wales (Wednesday 20:00) Germany 0 - 2 France (Thursday 20:00)
  9. Have to support the underdog in Wales. I don't really mind who wins out of the other three. The politics surrounding France winning the hosting rights and Platini's influence still rankles a bit, though I generally like the host nation to do well and the French people could use something to celebrate. Germany are a great team but I'm just getting a bit sick of them being so consistently good . Portugal are alright but I'd be happier about them winning if Messi had won the Copa America with Argentina .
  10. Quarter-finals Poland 1 - 1 Portugal (Thursday 20:00) Wales 0 - 3 Belgium (Friday 20:00) Germany 0 - 1 Italy (Saturday 20:00) France 2 - 0 Iceland (Sunday 20:00)
  11. This is incredible . Like a comedy sketch! Just horrendous from England. Indescribably embarrassing from top to bottom. No wonder English fans are so cynical when this happens every time.
  12. Have you got the Australian League loaded? Wellington Phoenix are a New Zealander team based in the A-League, if active perhaps they could produce enough youth players to make the national team playable (assuming it works like that... I think I've seen national teams become playable after their national pool increases but I could be wrong). Would also love a screenie of the Australia squad if you've got one handy! Maybe some key players too if you have time, McGarry looks decent from the pic you posted and looks to be a goalscoring machine too!
  13. Round of 16 Switzerland 0 - 1 Poland (Saturday 14:00) Wales 2 - 1 Northern Ireland (Saturday 17:00) Croatia 1 - 1 Portugal (Saturday 20:00) France 2 - 0 Republic of Ireland (Sunday 14:00) Germany 3 - 0 Slovakia (Sunday 17:00) Hungary 2 - 2 Belgium (Sunday 20:00) Italy 1 - 0 Spain (Monday 17:00) England 1 - 1 Iceland (Monday 20:00)
  14. My points total is correct but it says +15 for me when it should be +10, had 5 points after the first round.
  15. Excellent choice of national team Nearly at the turn of the century! Got a New Years' party planned?
