I think Dinamo are playing above themselves right now, it helps that my striker is in top form right now. None of my other players seem to want to score! I think we'll finish the season mid-table at best, but I'm enjoying the good performances while they last.
No I haven't and I am a bit concerned actually. Of course there could be loads of real life reasons to keep him away from here including a holiday, but he was due to run the second two league games of Week 1 of our Test League and he was on the you tube chat for the saturday night game (that I uploaded) and was due to do the next two games on the Sunday and he didn't mention anything about not being able to do them. That's completely unlike him to just disappear without a word, especially as he was so into this manager league as well, hence my concern. That evening was the last time he was on here and the last time I heard from him. I did send him an email to an email address he gave me a little while ago, although I've no idea if it is his main one, but I haven't heard back. Hopefully he's just taking a break (hence the comments on his retro site) or has some things to do/deal with etc.
Brommapojkarna (His club in Sweden) is an insane club producing top players here in Sweden@rockstrongo Kulusevski is from Stockholm and on loan to Parma this season
I think that's a good setup,live the idea with rival clubs as well.I think what might be a good idea when we have the two division full league is to have an end of season game where the team of the season for each Division play each other as an end of season showcase game.
I'm thinking for Div 1 to take Ben's idea of having rivals in it plus a couple of other top sides like Atalanta who really need to be in it on this showing, so what's your thoughts on this guys....
Div 2 (our starting point and people can still choose to change team if they want)
@wildwind Man Utd
@sniglet Dinamo Zagreb
@miguelfcp FC Porto
@jihado86 Bayern Munich
@Flipper the Priest Marseille
as rival teams.
then Atalanta as they have been so great
Then seeing as Lyon/Marseille are rivals of a sort anyway the final two...
as both have brilliant youth set ups.
Ha ha,Yeah i Kinda suspected that,we had 5 seasons in the second division over here (Luke was here then) and can't even remember half of those players.He was with us for a couple of months or so at most when we were signing players on monthly contracts, I think I only saw him a couple of times and I think your thoughts on him are pretty accurate from what I remember of him!
We had so many players pass through at that time. I think it was the third season after getting relegated from the Championship, we were in Lg2 and one of our young players made his debut and he was the 100th player to make his debut in something like three seasons! God we had some absolutely awful players during that time. So many free agents on monthly contracts which once you saw them you realised why!
I hadn't actually noticed there were no Spanish teams!
You just don't want that Man City rivalry, right? Just kidding, you're right Chelsea do have a better academy, mainly because they steal all the talent from everywhere in England at ridiculously young ages (no I'm not bitter about Mason Mount lol)Bm vs Spurs must be the Game of Sesaon so far. I like the first goal of BM. The best Assist I ever seen.
For Div 1 teams, I suggest to change these 2 teams for your consideration
Chelsea (Man City) - Chelsea have much better academy in england. They are the 18/19 finalist in UEFA Youth League and 2 times champion
Barcelona (Partizan) - Partizan may not have the quality to compete. Agree with Rock to include a spanish team
Stirling work again, Matt! Fascinating stuff. If you can cope with the maintenance, a division 3 with teams you’ve listed would be amazing. If there’s anything I can do to help, let me know!World Youth League

Team Stats to Date.
Some interesting stuff here. Bayern Munich, as shown last night as a perfect example, have the most completed passes but are not quite firing at either end of the pitch. However on last night's showing, I think someone is going to get a thrashing from them soon. Porto appear to be the nicest team with just 2 fouls in the last 180 minutes! With the lowest interceptions and with passes and touches also near the bottom of the list, they are obviously doing a hell of a job in making their possession count.
Atalanta's offence is clinical to say the least, but can their defence be got at? Dinamo have three clean sheets from their four games and are quietly beginning to move up the table. With Baturina banging goals in for fun at the other end, it's a nice mix.
