    More options in the summer cuz some teams will want to blow it up.
  2. [SIM] RGMG 5.0

    As the TDL approaches, Buffalo will be looking to sell and re-tool. We'll be looking to add a decent NHL goaltender (think back-up/former starter) in the short-term, with a view to add a legitimate starter in the off-season. As for players who are available: Jori Lehtera Johan Larsson Tyler Pitlick Brad Richardson Jordan Martinook Jason Pominville Scott Mayfield Louis Domingue Ville Husso We may also consider offers for Jared McCann, Ondrej Palat, and Jonas Brodin. Doubtful I'd move them (way more likely in the off-season) but open to hearing something in the case that it makes sense for my team.

    Time for my Adriatic brothers to win a cup. I mean, every best scenario has happened but Croatia winning a cup over France is slightly better, since France at 2 is no bueno.
  4. The Official European Football (Soccer) Thread

    There's not really scenario (at least not in the next 20-30 years, IMHO) where the MLS even reaches the level of European leagues. It's like Reggie said, the dreams of playing football for Real Madrid or Bayern Munich are much higher than playing for Philadelphia Union. And that includes players brought up in North America. At best, pumping in money for North American team ends up like China/Middle East, where eventually you cap it on foreigners because your national team programs suffer for it or in a slightly better case scenario, you become a Russia or Turkey, where, again, it is only marginally better because you're not necessarily capping it on foreigners. The real way to improve football in North America is to add promotion/relegation. Give players something meaningful to play for on both ends of the table, weed out guys coming to collect a pay check, weed out managers who haven't got a clue tactically, and maybe then the MLS would be taken seriously. Also, remove the draft. A big part of European football and why players choose their clubs is because of the reputations that are built because of academies and the emphasis that clubs place on developing players.

    Must have missed it then. Ya, Pjaca and Higuain moving on makes the most sense. Get the feeling Sarri will bin Morata and bring in Higuain. Speaking of DiMarzio, he said that Chelsea are looking to hijack the Jorginho to City deal, as well.

    When did they get him? Good trio, ya

    Jori Lehtera will be made available at the trade deadline.

    Rumour Roundup 1. @TheMagicMan will look to retool his team further after making a big trade to acquire Christian Dvorak. He is said to be highly interested in goaltender Kris Oldham of the Calgary Flames 2. Carolina general manager @Zach Parise is said to be on high alert after hearing about Gustav Forsling's availability. It is thought that Forsling fancies a return to Carolina, where he's enjoyed two previous spells in the last year. 3. A 300 million-dollar warchest has been given to @Spoderman to acquire all potential targets. He plans to raid Nashville for forward Wayne Simmonds and will also lob a record-breaking bid for Turkish starlet Yusuf Kars. 4. In a huge turn of events, the Montreal Canadiens unveiled @Crom! as their new GM. @Crom! has wasted no time in developing his team and will look to make a major splash at this year's trade deadline to bolster his chances of winning the Cup. 5. Fans were left puzzled after the Boston Bruins traded for Carey Price. However, our sources have learned that @Carlutch98 has spent the last 48 hours drinking, which would explain the context around the deal. "Ahh, &^@# it baud, you only live once. Gotta win this cup, baiyz". 6. Just how did Brayden McNabb secure a multi-year contract worth more than 4 million annually? Reports say that @morrissex95 was quick to offer the defender the contract after learning that DeMarcus Cousins would not be signing in Pittsburgh and would be headed to Golden State. "Those jerks are always signing everybody". 7. @Sane33 is said to be eyeing a long-term replacement for Jay Bouwmeester. He will look to target many left-handed defencemen at this year's trade deadline. 8. Betting has been suspended on @Ryan Murray returning to sim league and taking over the Columbus Blue Jackets. 9. If you're wondering why Arizona constantly has an empty press box, we may have some insight. It has been learned that the Gila River Arena had filed a restraining order against their GM, whose name shall not be named, which has prevented him from actively attending games. It has been speculated that he has tried numerous aliases to try and bypass the the arena security but has been unsuccessful each time. 10. @Dion Phaneuf will continue to keep his team relatively the same as he looks to win a championship. Expect him to add a center, if anything, later on this year. 11. @Alain Vigneault has been told his job could be on the line if he fails to make a playoff appearance between this year and next year 12. Newcomer @adre693 has discussed the possibility of moving one of his wingers for defensive help. Names and targets not known at this time. 13. Jusse Saros has reportedly discussed deals with many potential suitors, including Buffalo, St. Louis, and Anaheim. @Patrick Kane has declined comment. 14. It was between the Tampa Bay Lightning and the Florida Panthers for the services of Alexander Barabanov. Both @StevieY.19 and @Master Mind were said to have been civil during the process, however. 15. @kj29 will look to bring in more middle-six wingers because "it's cool, dude".

    Boggles me why Firmino barely played. He played as a false 9 the whole year with Liverpool, having Coutinho as his 8 behind him for half of that but... nothing from Brazil.
  10. 2018 FIFA World Cup

    Belgium - England actually works better from an Arsenal standpoint as it means City will most likely be without De Bruyne, Kompany, Stones, Walker, Sterling, and Delph for the opening fixture but I want to see somebody new win it this year.
  11. 2018 FIFA World Cup

    Belgium - Croatia final please.
  12. 2018 FIFA World Cup

    Historically speaking, it's a big upset because Belgium has never done anything in major tournaments, outside of seldom semi-final appearances and one final in a Euro. They just happen to have a golden generation that's produced top 10 talent in every position - better than Croatia, Uruguay, Ivory Coast, Ghana, and Japan - which is why TSN hyped it. But, yes, on paper, fairly even sides with slight advantage to Brazil.
  13. 2018 FIFA World Cup

    De Bruyne is one of very, very few who look so dangerous when shooting as he does when passing. Simply phenomenal when he has the ball.
  14. 2018 FIFA World Cup

    I said that Belgium should bin Kompany and that Fernandinho would be a fine Casemiro replacement. Kompany heads off Fernandinho and in...
