Hey guys. In cause you are wondering why the starting RM for AGE United is not signing up for this league. It's because I'm on the west coast and the time zone thing can be an issue, plus I enjoy the Club games better. Good luck to all of you in the league and we'll still see ya Thursday nights for Club.

Big props to Raider. I could say with a big stud like Ibra, a magician like Messi, and a midfield of Inesta, Xavi, and Toure, how could he not kick my but, but in fairness, I did NOT respond well tactically to what he was throwwing at me. Time to regroup.....I would like to see the stats because my guess is had posesion like 75% to 25%.

Baba, I think you should play whoever is available since people are not sticking to the schedule and just so we complete this. I realy dont' want to see this go downthe tubes. It wasn't that much of a committment. If people want for fun we can schedule a little party for Saturday morning (EST)and try and get a bunch of the group stage games in. I know I would be up for it.

Good games, Raider.[B]


Well, Moyes has led the Toffees to the knockout stages for Group B. But, the drama is just beginning. Man. Utd. has had a disappointing run that ended when Everton punched their ticket but still holds the fate of Barca and the Hammers in their hands.W/ a 6 goal deficit, the Hammers basically need two wins to go on through. Now, all Bo can do is sit on the sidelines and pull for his favorite mid-fielder to steal one from our boy from across the pond. Stay tuned...

Good games last night. Nizz was all over the pitch like a mad man, I couldn't controll the ball at all. I will figure it out and come back for more.

Vdub picked it up after 8-0 loss for a very well deserving 1-0. His defense was on point all game long and believe it or not he didn't get a red card. Now all you have to do Vdub is not give me the ball when your dudes up on offense have it [:P]

Thanks bab, good games! I'm usually flying all over the place on defense and attacking like a madman. Some of the guys i play on ranked have found weaknesses to my strategy and will usually embarass me when they do! :)

Dude it's a great strategy cause I'll tell you what, I didn't know what the hell to do. Everytime I had the ball I had 2 guys on me and couldn't pass, juke or shoot. I realized that when I changed the formation I was better but I still have one last secret weapon that might work against you. I will figure it out and hopefully play you again in the later rounds.

Sorry guys it has been a rough three weeks for me to get these games in. Got married, work and had to go to Florida last weekend because my wife's dad has cancer. I will be on this weekend and will get all games in against everyone I'm supposed to. To include the one I owe babaloou. So if you see me on send and invite. If no one is on I will probably be finishing the Splinter Cell Conviction SP so it will be easy for me to exit. I will try and stay away from MP games until I finish all my Fifa games.

Hi All,


Rooney and myself managed to get both games played last night so the competition can now progress.


Results as follows:


Man Utd 0 West Ham Utd 2


The nerves were obvious from the start of this match and early pressure from the home side resulted in gaps left at the back. The first goal came from a breakaway and was finished expertly by Ashton (44)from the edge of the box into the top corner of the net. Half time 1-0 to the hammers. The second half started no different and after berbatov hit the bar aWest Ham corner resulted in panic in the home defence and Boa Morte (72)finished from 5 yards.


West Ham Utd 2 Man Utd 1


This was a carbon copy of the first leg nerves on both sides and unbelievably it was snowing in East London!!! The Red Devils started brightly but another breakaway goal resulted in the home side taking an early lead Ashton again finishing at the second attempt (14) Half time 1-0 to the hammers. The pressure was bound to tell and after some sloppy defending from the home side rooney broke away down the left wing and crossed for Berbatov to finish emphatically (66) Man Utd seemed to go for the outright result after the goal and were unlucky with a Berbatov header that green managed to claw away for another corner. This was cleared and Cole on for the impressive Ashton, broke down the left and crossed for dyer (72) to send the jubilant east end crowd home happy.


The hammers progress to the next phase but it was'nt without some panicky moments.





Well played rooney, sorry i did'nt get to speak to you but my baby seems to spend more time asleep than awake. Or maybe i spend more time at work than at home, one or the other.

Yes, one thing I havn't been able to figure out with Uniteds standard tactical setup is how to keep my back line from getting cought up field. Good games though. Green stood on his head for a few shots.


I will be around tommorow morning if anyone is around for FIFA.


Tonight I am devoting some time to AC2 so I can get it done. But you know me if I get an invite to OTP I will take a break from stabbing bad guys and climbing the rooftops of Firenze.

Good deal, guys. Thanks for getting them in. I was thinking the same thing about advancing, Rooney.

On a related note, i was wondering if we should try a One "morning"-er on a saturday with FIFA 10. All we need is 8 people in a party and just do a random draw. One game against your group, and top 4 move on. We could even choose International Squads. If we did it at 9:00AM on a saturday (2:00PM GMT and 6:00AM PST) we could be done by 12:00Noon EST. I think this could be fun. I will start an interest thread if the regulars are up for it.

Alright, we'readvancing to the semi-finals. The match-ups are West Ham (Krudler) vs. Inter Milan (Baba) and Liverpool (Nizz8) vs. Everton (Doghead).


We're using the knockout stage format:


-one home/away series (Inter and Everton will play home in the first leg)


-end the first game if it is a draw


-if the aggregate score is tied afterthe second game, the one w/ the most away goals progresses


-if away is tied, too, play extra time and penalties

I thik it's going to be hard for me to get my game with Krudler cause I work all day and by the time I get home it's probably too late. I don't want this tourney to not reach a final game so I rather back out and let Krud advance to the final.

Since we're already way past schedule, we might as well wait until the last four get our games in. Just try for the weekend sometime. We're not in a big rush anymore.
