    @Happenstance @The Peeps @Fierce_LiNk @Zell @Dyson @Mr_Odwin @DuD You have two options you either play Xpert or play Xpert I resign thank you. I can make Xpert more fun! No its ok thank you. Your league is down to 9 you're fired. My team is just hitting form. Yeh I see the fried egg, you're fired. I just saw your team play and I wan... It is pretty strange this forum and xpert keep running into each other. Maybe it means something? I doubt it. Yeh I don't think so. We can just write our own posts make something as interesting as the game. What are you going to do. Mould my own league. Youtube music video promoting xpert. Is that going to happen at the start of every season. I think so. How are you going to get people into Xpert if you are such a traditionalist? You are holding onto the past but Xpert is about the future. Maybe Xpert is not good enough. Yes it is. Xpert is a pipe dream. No this league is the dream it is 4-5-1 vs 3-5-2 it is very very exciting. Someone in the forum will be the one you need to know Someone who can lift the league off the ground Someone in the crowd will take the league where it needs to to go Someone in the crowd will make you Someone in the crowd will take you Finally off the ground, with a new manager ready to be found

    Weekly Report Greeks fading? The Angry Greeks have been near the top of the league for some time now but their old rivals Winston Warriors took 2nd place from them this week. The Greeks lost ground when they were held to a draw in a dramatic game against Haden United. The Greeks started off very well with the vital goal that they needed from a Tochourochou free kick, they looked to have a huge advantage when he scored a 2nd shortly afterwards, however the ref said their was a foul in the build up play. The away fans were then even more furious when Gawad smacked in a rare chance for United. It looked like United may have stolen a win but a late Wizzini goal was disallowed as it was now the home fans who turned on the referee. The Greeks went on to what was seen as an assured victory against mid table Cubic County but went behind after 24 minutes when Lambert hit in a looping header. The captain for the day Westman got a vita goal to equal things out for the Greeks on the eve of half time. Chances were hard to come by and it looked like it may be another 1-1 draw but Vardar scrambled home a freekick to make it 2-1 much to the relief of the home fans. Thanks to other results the Greeks actually gained ground on the top spot but have a huge game away to Phalanx FC next which where a statement win is needed as the title race goes down to the wire. Haden United 2-0 Exeter Gently The most important result this week was surely this one as Haden United beat league leaders Exeter Gently 2-0. United who have been looking for a marquee win this season came out with an ambitious 3-5-2 formation against the 4-4-2 of Exeter Gently. From the get go this paid off as United created chance after chance with their midfield running rampant. The Gently defence did not know who to mark as Gofrey crossed in a peach of a ball for Xicluna to head in off the post. Gently were reduced to damage control their goalie Crosby was by far the most valued player on the pitch. It must be said they were missing influential midfielder Bourjoirs to an injury and stemmed the tide slightly in the 2nd half. However it was all over as star midfielder Dale curled in a stunning long range shot to make it 2-0 in the 2nd half. In the end this was a painful loss for Exeter who see their league lead reduced to 1 point, they should see off Cubic County but other teams have underestimated them at their peril. For Haden United this was a great win and keeps a brilliant unbeaten streak going that sees them pushing for a top 3 place. Urban Street Foxes 1-1 AVFC Two teams that have had perhaps not a stunning season are Urban Street Foxes and AVFC. AVFC after a strong mid season run have stalled slightly, they faced a Street Foxes side who have picked up only two wins but did nick a point away to AVFC. However both teams did not want the game to be dull as the Foxes went with 3-5-2 and AVFC opted for 3-4-3. The game started off slowly with Street Foxes dominating possession but AVFC holding firm. The deadlock was broken when after 24 games AA Passot scored his first ever goal! It was a lovely through ball from star midfielder Kuijt that set him up for this special moment. The 2nd half opened up a lot more and the Foxes were searching for another goal to kill the game off but this proved to be their down fall. AVFC defender Silva intercepted a through ball and hit a beautiful long ball to Casanova who rounded the keeper to hit in his 5th of the season. The game ended with both teams slightly disappointed at a game that summed up a hard season. The Foxes have another home game but it is against the current champions Winston Warriors, while AVFC have a game they should win against Cuza-Voda. Team of the Week Haden United: United had a tough couple of games this week against two title contendors and while they shouldn't count a home draw as a good result against the Angry Greeks it isn't a bad one. The highlight of course was the victory against Exeter Gently, which was one of the best performances the team has put on this season. If they can keep this up they may have a shot at a top three place. Player of the week Paraskevas Almanidis of Phalanx FC had a brilliant week first he scored twice and set a goal up against Urban Street Foxes and then he added two more assists against FC Cuza-Voda in the Friday game. He currently has 12 points (combined goals and assists) and in that respect is behind only Exeter Gently's super striker Ewen Forbes who is way ahead with 18 points. We want you! Our current season is winding down so if you are reading this now and want to take part in the madness of life as an Xpert manager last season now is the perfect time to join for next season! http://www.xperteleven.com/?lid=427282
  6. Xpert 11 Season 4: For Xpert James?

    Hey man no problem glad you love the reports I have one below! Any chance we can have you back for next season, numbers are at last pretty stable but we have at least 1 spot. @dan\-likes\-trees any chance of Fed coming back? Return of the reports Exeter keep the momentum Exeter Gently kept the momentum up this week as they easily beat Cuza-Voda 5-0 and then earned a crucial away draw against title rivals Angry Greeks. The result was 1-1 but Exeter had to withstand huge amounts of pressure as the Greeks made 8 chances and held more possesion. They also struck first as lone striker Cederholm hit one in on the break, however Bourjoirs got a crucial header in the context of the league moments before the break. The Greeks were somehow held at bay in a cracking 2nd half as they attacked again and again. You feel this is a vital result for the league leaders who are now in pole position to win the league. Winston Warriors 0-1 Phalanx FC Part of the joy of Exeter's team came from a damaging loss to Winston Warriors who could have been just 1 point behind the leaders if they won this game, they now find themselves 4 points adrift. 4-5-1 the formation of choice was used by Warriors and earned them more chances and possesion, however Phalanx used 4-4-2 and the two strikers proved vital when Salling lost his marker and headed in goal just before half time. Warriors came back but the game was quite tepid and both sides only managed a few chances. In the end the game played out, for Phalanx this kept their very slim title hopes alive and cause a big blow to Winston. Cubic County 2-1 Urban Street Foxes As well as the upper echelons of he league there are subplots further down the table, the Urban Street Foxes score a win over Cubic County a week ago and knew another one would see them move up the table. County for their own part wants to keep in touch with AVFC who are pulling away. County played a solid 4-4-2 against Foxes usual 3-4-3, the first half was quite even but the defender Brace scored the vital opener with a brilliant header. County began to grown in confidence and in the 2nd half Cullen set up Lambert to volley in a great finish. However the Foxes looked good and it was deserved when Georgopoulos hit in a close range shot 5 minutes later. The game died down after this and County held out for a victory that moves them up the table, the Foxes will now have to do a lot to try and gain ground on the rest of the league. Team of the week AVFC carry on their fine run of form after a dreadful opening patch at the start of the season. They looked magnificent against Phalanx as they played a risky 3-5-2 to great effect and won the game 2-1, they then destroyed Mapchester away 6-1. They have earned 13 points out of a possible 15 in their last 5 matches and are challenging for a top four finish, if they start this well next season could they have a tilt at the title? Player of the week Lifa Falzon for Haden United had a good showing against the Foxes as well as a storming performance against Cuza Voda as the 20 year old was at the heart of everything good United did, scoring once and setting up two goals in their 3-0 victory. Apologies for lack of reports have been without my laptop for a couple of weeks now! Dan let me know if you can do next week and good luck to everyone for the week ahead!
  7. Xpert 11 Season 4: For Xpert James?

    Haha wouldn't bank on me taking points off anyone but Madchester at the moment! I honestly cannot believe that last game, I feel like Mourinho in full on moan mode but I had the offensive play guessed, the playmaker marked, 10 chances to 5, at home...
  8. Xpert 11 Season 4: For Xpert James?

    Week 2 report Greeks and Phalanx set the pace So now we are down to just two teams who have won all of their games, these two teams are Angry Greeks and Phalanx FC. For Phalanx they had a tough game against County that they won 1-0 thanks to a priceless header by Stensaas with 10 minutes to go. They then beat Haden United 2-0 away from home with a 2-0 victory were they controlled the game and deserved to win. For the Greeks it began with an easy victory against Urban Street Foxes but they won a crucial game against Winston Warriors 3-1 away from home. Playing 3-5-2 they were rampant in attack against the Warriors and sealed the victory when Westman slammed in a brilliant goal at the 69th minute. Both these teams are well fancied by the bookies to go all the way but one thing is sure at least one of them will not have a 100% record by the next report as they fave each other on Friday. AVFC not functioning AVFC had what can only been seen as a bad week. Starting with a 2-0 away loss to Haden United they created 1 chance even though they had 5 midfielders to only 3 against United. To pour salt on the wound they lost their new striker Casanova to a brutal injury that will see him miss some of the coming week as well as all of last week. AVFC tried to recover by playing a defensive 4-5-1 against Exeter Gently. This did give AVFC 7 chances but they also allowed Exeter to have 11 chances. What was also an issue was Fadhilah who stepped in to fill the Casonova shaped hole was ineffectual up front by himself. When AVFC did score it was already game over with 90 minutes gone and 3 goals conceded. AVFC have some star players but need their new players to start to mesh and Casanova to come back firing sooner rather than later. FC Cuza gains some traction After their opening loss 6-0 FC Cuza were seen as easy prey for other teams but it must be said they had a really good week. They started with a 1-0 win against the abandoned Mapchester, they used a 4-4-2 formation and scored a goal after just 2 minutes by the captain Stratan. They made 5 chances but their forwards were not really up to much but luckily their defence was very good in this match. What was more impressive was their 1-1 draw with Urban Street Foxes away. Again the captain Stratan was impressive as he set up Malloy for a long range shot after 20 minutes. Urban struck back and came after Cuza really hard with 61% possession and 6 chances, however with Uliu superb in goal and Stratan commanding the back line they held firm to gain a valued point. This puts them 6th which after the opening day is not a bad place to be. Player of the week Ewen Forbes - Exeter Gently After a 2-0 home loss to Winston Exeter had a lot to prove in their next game at home to AVFC. They needed players to stand up and be counted and it is clear that Forbes is a captain who leads from the front. He scored via a header and breakaway for the first two goals and then beautifully held up play and released Logan for the 3rd. He was menacing throughout and kept pushing his team forward after a poor first half, this was a really important win for Exeter and they have Forbes to thank for it. Team of the week Angry Greeks have been so professional this season it is scary. Last season they may not have lost but they were dropping points where they shouldn't have been. This time around they are beating lesser teams with ease as seen by their mauling of Urban Street Foxes and crucially they won their first test with a brilliant 3-1 away win against Winston. They need to keep this momentum up as they look to take back their crown.

    Epic report @dan\-likes\-trees! Good win today needed to switch things up a bit after the opening day.
  11. Xpert 11 Season 4: For Xpert James?

    Talking points Week 1 Winston are offensive! It was a strong start for Winston Warriors as they started their title defence with a 3-0 win against Haden United that was full of confidence and bluster. Despite only starting with 1 striker the Warriors were full of attacking intent creating 8 chances with the evergreen Wimmer at the centre of every goal. Wimmer scored a screaming shot within 2 minutes and then set up chances for Galisteau to hit home on the 53rd and 80th minute. United were simply blown away and could not find any sort of footing in this game. Warriors were able to push up constantly with their 4-5-1 formation and expect them to use this formation again in big games as it allowed them to stay solid at the back but commit men forward. United may need to go back to the drawing board after this loss, they simply were not competitive and will feel their title hopes have already suffered a big blow. For the Warriors they may well offend more teams in the future! Two small squads meet With a combined total of 31 players Urban Street Foxes and Exeter Gently have focused teams but on evidence of this game they may be where the similarities end. Exeter Gently lived in the shadow of Phalanx FC last season but will want to get ahead of their rivals this term. They have started off well as the manager equipped his team perfectly to take out the Foxes. While the Foxes lined up with a commendable 3-4-3 Exeter countered with 4-4-2, their stronger midfield meant they won 7 chances to 1. This meant the Foxes 3 strikers were isolated for most of the game while Exeter scored firstly on the break in the 27th minute and then drew out a penalty in the 68th to seal the game. The manager even had a chance to bring on some youth at the end of the match. Exeter face a huge home match against the Warriors next while the Street foxes have a massive challenge as they face the Greeks away. Greeks are first among men The Angry Greeks may not be quite so angry as they demolished FC Cuza-Voda 6-0 in a blistering first game. While both teams played 4-4-2 it seemed the Greeks had an extra player in each part of the pitch. In truth these title winners were beyond the scope of what Cuza-Voda could comete with and by the 41st minute it was already 5-0. Cuza-Voda had a midfield that featured three 19 year olds. By the time Greeks young prospect Blaestrud came on he must have felt and old hand at 21 years old. Hopefully Cuza Voda can progress with a victory or two this season while the manager sorts out their team, for the Greeks they have the momentum and the form they are off to a very strong start. AVFC Galácticos fail to make instant impact AVFC have been ringing in the changes with 7 players leaving and 9 coming in during the past few weeks. Not all of them were ready for the fixture against Cubic County but it must be said those that were did not make a dream debut. New midfielder and new captain Dwight Red looked to be injured early on but toiled on in what was a stop and start performance from AVFC. Cubic County seemed wary and played a 4-5-1 formation but most of the game took place in the center ground with both teams only having 1 chance each! Neither of these were taken and both teams may look at this as a lost opportunity. For County it was a home game where they looked scared to play while AVFC know they need to wait for their top men to learn to play together but will hope the wait does not take too long. Phalanx enjoy training game opener Whlie all efforts were made to open the league with 10 active teams. Sadly however shortly after taking over Hull Federer Alliance the new owners of the renamed Mapchester United seem to have left the club. Still it means all the teams can enjoy a couple of training games this season. Phalanx was the first to have this privilege and made the most of it playing a 3-4-3 formation that netted them five goals. Phalanx have to be seen as one of the title contenders this season and with a home game against County next you would imagine they will still be at the top end of the table heading into next Friday's game. Player of the week: Gunther Wimmer, a great match for Wimmer with a goal and two assists as he made sure his side got off to a winning start. Team of the week: Exeter Gently, with a tactically astute away win Exeter have got their campaign off to a strong start.
