    Hmmm, I like the white away jersey, that's quite nice.
    But the blue one with stripes must be a joke :rolleyes:

    The first two are unimaginative and bland templates, id never even consider getting either one of them. Adidas are either hot or cold these days. But as yet at least not at Puma or Nike levels of rubbish product.

    ....ouch. :eek:
    I really love the physical game they play in UK but thats simply a straight Red Card. :rolleyes:
    Unfortunately couldnt watch the game, they didnt air it on German Sky. :(
    Looks like City has a good chance to win the FA Cup, they will be a huge favourite against Wigan.

    Yeah blatant straight red card no question. There's hard but fair and then there is tackles like that, and he got away with it. Swings and roundabouts these things tend to even themselves out in time......
    I don't really like Wigan but i hope they now win the FA Cup.:rolleyes:
    Nice avatar nessie.:tup:

    Thanks ;)
    Yepp, easy pick for me as well - hope Wigan beats them! I just dont like City....:rolleyes:

    Hmmm, I must admit that this Bayern home jersey is quite nice. Classic design.
    Croak, this is a "must buy" for you. With "Mia san Mia" stitched onto the collar :eek::D
    I'm still waiting for the new Hamburg shirts, especially the away jersey.

    Some more new kits, Barca 2014:
    [​IMG]

    And Arsenal away, I dont like it:

    Mmmm i dont really like what Nike are doing, those skinny blue bars on the Barca shirt ruin it.
    Ive seen worse Arse shirts, but its pretty bland to be honest.

    Schurrle agreed to terms with Chelsea. Wow! Looks like the blues are trying to compete for the Champions league next year.

    Yepp, there are more important things and leukaemia/blood cancer is a deadly threat. Hope he gets well soon.:tup:
    Btw - everybody can help by beeing a potential stem cell donor !
    Did I mention that I spent stem cells last summer to a patient who has to fight blood cancer ?

    But back on topic: Transfer fee for Schurrle shall be 20 m Euros, salary 4.8 m Euros. Wow...

    Oh yes, I played several managers for years.
    I started with the first type of manager games on Commodore Computers (C64,C128/ Dos) when I was young.
    Very simple graphics but a lot of fun leading Bury FC to multiple Championships :D
    [​IMG]


    Later I played several EA managers and "Anstoss", a German football manager, made
    by a small German company and in my opinion one of the best ever.
    I think they dont exist anymore because EA Sports are just too big.

    [​IMG]

    Since I dont have any Windows PC's anymore I didnt buy a new manager game because I couldnt find a game
    that runs under Mac OS X.
    Which one do you play ? EA Sports Manager? Or is there another manager game I dont know yet ?

    Ahh not sure if it would run on that system or not. The good old days of Football Manager! its the updated version on the PC seriously addictive just like the original. Got it half price on Amazon UK, ;) it needs a 128mb video card minimum and a steam account. Its difficult but rewarding currently im in charge of little Norwich City trying to keep them in the Premiership, running on a very tight budget couldn't believe it i beat Chelsea 0-1 away from home! :eek::D

    Ha......there is a Mac sign on it, I think I will give it a try. :)
    I do have a 256 MB video card so I guess it should work on my PC or Laptop.
    And i found it on German Amazon for only 22 Euros ;)

    1-0 away at Chelsea, sensational. :D
    Can you choose a team before you start playing ? I always loved to pick a team from the fourth tier....

    On Steam you can also buy for a small fee No sackings and No transfer windows, and National sides etc. :tup:

    Hm, that should work, I will order me a copy today and try out.
    Never heard of Steam before but already found their website.

    Spitting, kicking, pushing, hitting....I've seen this before but biting another player is quite new to me.....:eek::confused:
    Suarez is nuts, they should give him a break and ban him for a few weeks to become clear :rolleyes:

    Steam is like Amazon the goto place for games now, first make an account and when the game arrives there will be a registration code on the manual enter it on your account and then nobody else can play the game other than you.
    Lucca Beccio played out of his skin for me against Man City he scored a hattrick won 3-2! :eek: im mid table with Norwich and reducing the age of the players and training them up.

    Btw i thought there was something wrong with the game when i played it at first utter silence, the only sound you will hear is on the game highlights. Its how the programmers wanted it apparently. :)

    The Canaries.

    In any other walk of life Suarez would have been fired for doing that, disgusting.

    Yepp, bought me a steam code online and downloaded it.
    Thanks for this link, that will be helpful :tup:
    I guess I will have to spend some more time to explore the game and the possibilities how to manage and develop my team ;)

    Btw: Instead of our annual summer trip to London my wife just booked flights to Edinburgh :eek:
