Look for English players whose second name is Henry and tell every one you have Henry and Rooney playing up front.

Did you see about the non-league side that all legally changed their names to "Messi", "Ronaldinho", "Eto'o" etc?

Don't the board give you a target at the start of the season?

They probably did. I'm not too worried. The fans are happy cos i signed some (ex?)Bulgarian international defender, who's a mere 38 years old.

Then again that's his buy out clause price isn't it so really it's the same as any club. What about his wages though must be pretty steep

I could do that, yeah. Petrov's being a poo anyway.

Wages are... 125k a week. But there's a lot of bonuses all stuck on that, so he'd come to me.

I've never paid someone over 75,000 a week if they want more than that I usually flog them

Was the highest earner one of the best players?

He was my only forward who had Long Shots in double figures. But I've fixed that with young Rooney, who also has a 10 for Long Shots.

I won the league 5 years in a row with Chelsea, the Champions League 2/3 times, the Euro Championship and World Cup with England on the bounce. Not bad for a 5 year game.

Took West Ham from 1st Divison to be 3 times Premp champs and double Champions League winners too. with World Cup and Euro Championship with England to boot.

Became the top rated manager of all time (with about 800 manager points) on both those games

Won 11 trophies in 4 years with Aresnal on my last go - no international stuff on that game though (got Brazil job, but never continued, it was 4 years till next World Cup).

Thought id join in on all the banter and try this challenge? Not sure who to go for but im thinking bath or team bath as there local to me. So any recomendations for free transfers? I think rooney may be a good shout on loan, hows he doing??

Greatest acheivments ive had are prob winning the world cup with only championship players? I used to love doing that on the old champ mans. as soon as the big clubs come calling and they go to the premiership there out the squad!!
Notable shout for winning every trophy with fulham (my second season with them..1st season was there 1st in the prem and i came 4th) including league, fa-cup,league cup,champs league.

whats the best ever transfer offer u've recieved?? Mine was on 02/03 i think, 20mill plus zidane/raul and carlos for john o'shea!!! fricking john o'shea!!!!

Well the highest transfer request I got was on CM01/02 when Barcelona offered me 85 million for Joe Cole when I was Inter Milan. I'd rejected all their previous offers but caved and sold him for the price which in turn caused all the other players to hate me because I sold a key player of the squad.

Never had any really memorable transfers. I tend to knock back all the big request if I'm atop team...if they want 'um that much they're probably a key player.

If you're a small club then you have to sell, but finding bargins and kids is half the fun!
