I spent the first half of my third season at Leicester destroying sides. Turn the game off. Turn it back on in the morning. Can't win for shit.

There's a reason people get superticious with this game.

I didn't like 09. Strikers just didn't seem to score on it at all.
When I was at Liverpool Torres was crap. And when I was at United my two top scorers were Ferdinand and Vidic as they'd constantly score form corners. Rooney or Berbatov one on one and the keeper would always save.
Perhaps not too unrealistic...

I voiced my opinion.


There was this beautiful moment at Latitude where someone in the Comedy Tent did a 'Wahey' when Villa were mentioned. Then came an enormous boo from the rest of the - very middle class - tent :).

3-0 Away at Man Utd isn't bad at all.

Let the season start now :D

Theres something in this fo' sure.
Tonight I've smashed Valencia's previous undefeated streak record of 6 (!) and not conceeded in 6 either. Villa's still being a shit and not scoring. Meanwhile Zigic is scoring for fun.

Players always score on loan for me, but as soon as I buy them, the goals dry up.
I haven't had a 20 goal a season striker since Marlon Harewood on the loan the first season :lol:

FROM THE.

That's the one I meant. I'm the premier leageu now :lol:
I was still impressed with it.
I'm still doomed :P

EDIT: Three games in.
It's reminded me why I hate getting promoted.
I may be pulling a Derby here.

EDIT: I just lost 5-0 to Blackburn at home. It may be time for a new formation.
