Liking the look of Januzaj. Not quite an athlete yet with that frame, and apparently his right foot doesn't exist, but he's got a nice style of play from what I've seen.

What's the latest working FirstRow proxy people are using?

I captained my team until u15s

We were awful, I was shit and we all sucked. Our goalie was about 4ft tall. But I did play a couple games at CM where I was just munching lads twice my size and playing lovely balls but then I quit

Skimread and my brain heard "munching lads lovely balls."

But I really want to get rid of our current coach and one step clsoer to that would be for him to fail to reach Brazil after failing massively in the EC12. (okay we didn't fail massively if you would've thunk beforehand but seeing as we got knocked out due to Andriy Shevchenko of age 78 scoring twice on us it was a massive failure.)


You scored the best goal of the tournament IMO, that's got to count for something.
Anything that I think only has one dick in it that then surprises me when I skip ahead. Ain't having no porksword fencing, man. I ain't into that.

They aren't bad players. Benayoun in particular is actually really decent .

Well if the fax didn't go through in time, we can appeal. I REALLY hope we do get him, or this window has been really wank .

I agree, but I'm not sure any of them would've been on a Toon fan's list. Kinnear and Pardew are going to get roasted.
Quote by sam b
Soooooooo.. anyone got a list of players on a free?

Benayoun, Carlton Cole, William Gallas, Hitzelsperger, Adriano, Craig Gordon, David Bentley, Mladen Petric.

Lookin' good, man.

Quote by Shabalaba
You sure? Everywhere i've seen said its confirmed.

"BBC Sport has learnt that Manchester United did submit their paperwork for their season-long loan deal for Fabio Coentrao before the 2300 BST deadline. But the move will only go ahead if both United and Real Madrid entered the correct details of the deal on Fifa's new transfer matching system. The deadline for that system closed at midnight."

Sounds up in the air to me.

Did Herrera go to United?

Quote by opc100
Chelsea haven't improved, at all. All they've done is added more cover for their attacking midfield and brought in Eto'o which is a baffling signing. Their central midfield options and defence is still bang average for a title challenging side.

I wouldn't consider Ramires and Lampard to be an average midfield. Their defence is nothing spectacular.
Quote by Trowzaa
Well post more

Coentrao deals off, wasn't completed in time.

David Ornstein's Tweeting it's a done deal.
Someone clear this up for me - did United fail to grab both Fellaini and Herrera?

has it been somewhat confirmed that Özil is going to Arsenal or is it still up in the air?

He's 1/20 to join, medicals have been reported by both Bild and SSN. It's essentially done.

Rumours are that Ozil is travelling to London right now.

The plot thickens.

Quote by robbo546hall
Not often I'm happy with a performance. Weren't great in possession, but that is the best I've seen us off the ball in a long time. Great work rate from all the players, that's all I want to see. The players giving their all.

Everyone was good. Especially Giroud, Ramsey and the CB's. Flamini was good when he came on as well.

You could've stopped after four words, I swear you haven't made an optimistic post since the beginning of July.

Juve are with Real Madrid, Donetsk with Man Utd.


Moyes's first season in Europe, and I reckon Juve could do a number on Madrid. Worse teams have comfortably dealt with Madrid in Europe recently.
20/1 odds on Juventus, Donetsk and Chelsea to top their respective CL groups. That's worth a punt, surely?

Anyone got the latest working proxy of FirstRow floating around?

Crafted my first badge. Got basically unsellable stuff in return and a 90% off for krater

Krater's decent. Dialogue system gets irritating quickly and the combat's a little linear, but for like £1.29 you get a decent and pretty RPG. Plus with a 90% off voucher, you could get a foil that you could sell for more than you paid for the game.

Unfortunately caught 5 minutes of Soccer AM.

Why does this awful, awful show still air on TV every week?

The last 20 minutes is pretty good. Goals of the week, showboat, and the fans shooting at the league target thing. Not worth braving the rest of it to find the Soccerettes though.

Oh Dunno, that's the biggest game of the group for Arsenal so it'll be harder

It's not until October though so wait a bit. Call the box office and ask if they think they'll go on general sale

Will do, cheers. Struggling to find a box office number that isn't for bloody members, mind
Quote by JohnnyGenzale
If Madrid brings in Suarez and Bale that's basically Benzema and Di Maria out of the current squad.

And Isco already replaced Özil
And Illaramendi is the to-be-replacement of Alonso when he's leaving.

Neither of the first two were that crucial last season. Benzema sort of was but he hasn't realy been as good as Madrid want him to/demand him to be.

And Özil is more or less always invisible when it's big games. Something you can't say about Isco.

On the othr hand. That's a lot of stuff happening in 2 days and I'll sceptical but it would be interesting and all of a sudden Arsenal would have a damn good team.

Wilshere - Arteta

Di Maria/Walcott Özil Di Maria/Cazorla


dat depth.

I'd be amazed if Madrid were comfortable selling Ozil now that Isco has arrived. Even with the new arrivals he's one of the best players at the club IMO. I can see Di Maria leaving, and maybe Benzema, but not Ozil, and certainly not all three. As much as I'd kill to see it.
Quote by sam b
Just take note when they go on sale and get them early then

You don't have 75,000 season ticket holders, some will go on general sale, surely

The site doesn't say when they go on general sale. Gold members have season tickets, and tickets go on sale for silver members, then red. No information after that. I'm thinking of going to see Arsenal v Dortmund, to make it a little more specific.

Terrifying thought. Wenger could destroy 90% of his critics with that. Not that Madrid would ever take it.
