  1. Brazilian dancer/singer Loalwa Braz has been found dead, burnt to her bones in her car. The authorities assume murder as the only plausible cause of death. In case you haven't heard the name Loalwa Braz before, here's the one song that made her popular all over the world some 30 years ago:
  2. Well, let's hope he's not the first one of our fringe players to leave disgruntled because a lack of playing time. Oh, well - Schlupp already did. Can't hold the transfer request against him, really. Benalouane, Hernandez and King all suffering the same fate - some more than others. Gray's minutes on the pitch have only recently slightly increased and you never know whether he still holds a bit of a grudge against the manager. Otherwise, we'll be left with a rather lightweight squad in terms of depth.
  3. Convert him to a RB, use a Shadow or Sentinel card and you've got yourself a decent defender there (high/high workrates help, too).
  4. We're still lacking creativity in the middle of the park, correct? Get Sevilla's Hiroshi Kiyotake, available for £5m. Just think of the link-up play between him and Okazaki.
  5. Manchester City sign Brazilian striker Gabriel. Jesus is coming to town! 17 goals & six assists in 40 Série A games last year.
  6. Interesting article about young centre-back David Domej on an Austrian sports website. Didn't even know we'd signed him from Hajduk Split. http://www.spox.com/at/sport/fussball/international/england/1701/Artikel/david-domej-leicester-city-gespraech-sk-rapid-abschied.html The 21-year old suffered a cruciate ligament rupture whilst on the books for Rapid Vienna and was then out for eight months. When he made his comeback, other players had overtaken him in the race for a spot on the roster, so he decided to move to Croatia (his mother was born in Split). He's full of praise for the training setup at Belvoir Drive and being able to practice with first-teamers like Mahrez or Vardy. Fuchs was his companion in the first few weeks in order to help him settling in. According to Domej, Steve Beaglehole is very communicative, as opposed to Ranieri, who leaves a lot of that business to his assistants. As of right now, Domej is still out with a muscle injury.
  7. I sense a bit of a lack of vision and I do hope we're not already at a crossroads where the only two options are a standstill or a backwards move (f.eg. relegation). Of course, as a fan I want this club to prosper, but in a healthy, sustainable way. The whole package should be attractive by improving fans' relations, the stadium, training facilities, the youth academy, and not just an emphasis put on hiring new first-team players for record-breaking fees, only to see them having difficulties settling in. We have fantastic owners, at least when you compare them to others in the league, but following the highly surprising title win last season they seem to be a bit clueless as how to proceed from here, just as much as the team on the pitch. I mean, how do you top that? It's as if the unexpected success has completely taken them all by surprise. Our scouting approach is a bit of a mixed bag as of late, with Ndidi being some sort of rectifying move (as a more direct replacement of Kanté than Amartey, for instance). I'm not saying it's easy to spot the right targets and to get them to function within the setup that we have, as there's always a fair bit of luck involved. In hindsight however, our squad doesn't come across as overly balanced as there's an emphasis or up until recently, there was an emphasis on recruiting too many attacking players and no central midfielders or up-and-coming centre-backs or full-backs. The team is also on the aging side, whilst some fringe players don't seem to feature at all or very little (Benalouane, Hernandez, King and Ulloa to an extent and the fate of James still unclear). We're verging on stagnation somehow or at least that's the feel I'm getting, although I wouldn't say it's time for panicking (yet). The Champions League situation is only sugarcoating it all. I do hope we come to our senses again, as the whole organisation is living on Cloud Nine still, whilst struggling to come to terms with the harsh reality of the Premier League. Let's look at this season as some kind of transitional phase, with better days to come in 2017/2018.
  8. The thread title is misleading. We're not the "20th richest club in the world", but simply came 20th in generating global revenue in 2016. Sorry for being a spoilsport.
  9. Anyone got info on FUT Gold player packs coming soon? Fed up with the regular crappy 7500k ones on display.
  10. High-rated players (usually 87 and above) "walking out" of a pack once it's opened.
  11. Well, you can "up" the loyalty back to 10 - but you need to play 10 matches with the corresponding player(s) to do so.
  12. It means that players you buy off the market come with a loyalty of 9, instead of 10 with players you get from opening packs.
  13. And deservedly so (based on last season's exploit)! Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri has been inducted into the Italian Football Federation's Hall of Fame. He became the third Italian manager to win the Premier League title with an astonishing victory in the 2015-16 season. The 65-year-old is included alongside former Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti and ex-Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini. The FIGC promotes the efforts of Italians working within football. The nine other new inductees were: Giuseppe Bergomi (Italian player) Paulo Roberto Falcao (Foreign player) Silvio Berlusconi (Italian director) Graziano Cesari (Italian referee) Paolo Rossi (Italian veteran) Melania Gabbiadini (Female Italian player) Posthumous Awards: Nils Liedholm (Swedish former AC Milan player) Giulio Campanati (football referee and Italian entrepreneur) Cesare Maldini (Italian player) http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/38664215
  14. TOTW 18 with Lacazette, Harry Kane, Nainggolan, Arnautovic, Verratti, N'Zonzi, Ziyech (at the delight of Ric Flair!), Alonso (Captain Obvious), Marcano, Montoya and Asenjo as GK. 6 additional Gold on the bench also (among them Antonio as RWB), including Kalinic and Badelj of Fiorentina fame.
  15. They'll score enough to avoid relegation in my opinion. But it's their back four (and Valdes) that will save their season.
