NE Xpert 11 Season 2:049. New replicants welcome

Recommended Posts

 

Xpert managers are like any other poster.

They are either a benefit to the league or a hazard.

If they a benefit they are not my problem.

 

I was an admin to a 30 user league once.

I was a good admin.

Things were simpler then.

What a year for Winston. Terrific final chase against @Nikos9 - was worried a 7-0 demolition of Seahawks and a final defeat against Drahkon could see me slip but we pulled it over the line!

 

and... two double jumps, one 18-6 and a 21-8 and 4 milli in the kitty!! What a time to be a Warrior!! Looking forward to season 2.

 

Up for a couple weeks off to catch my breath though - Christmas celebration at Camp Winst are to be huge! See yous all in the new year!

Going to activate the league tonight, did you want to do a run down of teams your one last time was quite good?

 

Looks like it will either be a league of 8 or 10 is Federer still active? I think DuD has moved on but I will keep the team to balance it if we get one more applicant before I start the league.

Tactics set for my first match. Need to re-learn a lot of stuff. Need to work out if I need to ditch some of my players (I know I need to get a better youth goalkeeper)

Probably not going to have the time this week I'm afraid, been a bit of a busy time for me. I see my first match is away against Angry Greeks, could be a shocking start to Winston's season going on current form!

 

I'll definitely contribute some roundups through the season though : peace: Fairly confident Roger will be back

All Xperts managers are robots, take it slow

Wait for them to guess your formation you who you know

Please don't play 3-4-3

You don't know the half of the tactics

 

All Xperts managers are robots, take it slow

Wait for them to ask whose your playmaker

Please don't dirty trick me

You don't know the half of the abuse

 

Welcome to the room of managers

Who have rooms of players that they loved one day

Retired away

Just because we check the PRS at the door

Doesn't mean our brains will change from comments

You're lovin' on the 21-9 midfield sitting next to you

You're lovin' on the 15 goal forward sitting next to you

You'll think, how'd I get here, playing you?

But after all I've said, please don't forget

 

 

All Xperts managers are down to eight, take it slow

Wait for them to doubt your change report you who you know

Please don't play retire

You don't know the half of the game yet

 

 

 

Winston Warriors @dan\-likes\-trees

 

maxresdefault.jpg

 

Glorious imagination

 

Winston Warriors are a team that have players who can make a little miracle occur at any moment. From Wimmer to Jaume they are able to find that through ball that other players cannot see. Preece stops other teams doing this to them at the back but they are vulnerable up front and in between the sticks. However they are also of course champions, can they carry on the dream or will they be brought back down to earth?

 

 

 

Angry Greeks @Nikos9

 

maxresdefault.jpg

 

Iron Will

 

The Greeks are on a unbeaten streak that goes back to the times of the heyday of Athens (or the middle of last season). It is easy to see why every player in the team is there for a reason, every player is capable of greatness with many being brought in to fill any collective weaknesses that the Greeks suffered from. It will take a lot to stop them this season for many they are advancing with the menace of a Trojan Horse.

 

 

 

Hull Federer Alliance @RogerFederer

 

6a00e54ef2975b8833015392159c38970b-pi.jpg

 

Pin Point Passing

 

The Alliance did well but did not quite have the string of results they needed to challenge for the top spot. What personifies this team is a real love of players who can craft a superb cross or float a free kick over over the top of back tracking defenders. In Bigsby they have one of the best strikers in the league who will guarantee a good haul of goals if he stays fit. With well thought out tactics the sky is the limit for this team if they can find consistency.

 

 

 

Nuclear Submarine @Zell

 

maxresdefault.jpg

 

Leading from the front and back

 

Nuclear Submarine are powered by a powerful engine at the front and back of their machine. Small is one of the best goalies in the league while Slater can both create and finish goals playing as almost an advanced playmaker. The team is also one that is dominant in the air, their weakness may be in the middle where any cracks in the armor could see them flooding possession. Small and Slater will indeed be crucial for them in this up and coming season.

 

 

 

Haden United @Haden

 

6018836598_fd77b0ef64_b.jpg

 

No home for a hero

 

In their last campaign Uniteds season was fatally undermined by a miserable home record which saw them basically lose every single game against competative sides at their home stadium. If they can beat the curse at their new home stadium in Weybridge they could be in good hands with the experience of Mena and Dale in midfield driving them forward. Other areas of their team look passable but vulnerable to any sort of injury, how far can their midfield carry them?

 

 

Leeds Reunited @Lucas3693

 

5-13-15-white-footed-ant.jpg

 

Numbers overwhelm figures

Leeds at the moment represent the anti Greeks. Every man is not a specialist, the team almost merges into one as you look at it a cog ready to be turned in motion by its manager. Which direction it will go in up or down at the moment is unclear. However among the chaos lies perhaps an answer in Cain Lee the young midfielder who is both quick and creative good perhaps be a great if the team can harbor a talent like his it will go far.

 

 

 

Cubic County @Cube

 

custom_background_f_g1504_c25_r24.jpg

 

Creative Lands

 

County sees the return of an old manager who still has something to prove as Cube comes back to Xpert. With him is a forward line up that seems to be seeping innovation. Cullen and Culip while not having the best stats are a dangerous pairing if they find form who could not only create but finish moves for the County. Rowlands in the middle could prove to be a fantastic box to box midfielder with both stamina and a cool head. Cube will need to harness this trio to succeed.

 

 

Super Star FC

 

Daniel-Craig-james-bond-BW.jpg

 

VIP incoming

 

The only VIP that is playing looks to bring a maverick edge to the NE league. The only outsider he has already trimmed his squad to 15 players mixing future talent to experienced regulars. His team has a familiar ring with Bergkamp and Larrson up front and Pirlo directing traffic in midfield. While their midfield may need his guiding hand the expertise of the manager will mean this is one time you might not want to underestimate youth.

Don't be too disheartened away to Zell was a hard first game.

 

Keep your form high and experiment with some formations that may cause a surprise or two. I would also sack a few of your players to keep your team focused, Pritchard, Billingham, Lincon and Morrison should all be shown the door imo.

NE vs Xpert

 

Bully! A challenge! I love competition!

 

Now, where would I mount the stuffed head of an Xpert!

 

(Ha!) I'm into relationships, Star Wars through I'm a gamer

 

Rough riding down to Playground like, "What's up, bitches?!"

 

I keep my rhymes pure like my Chat about relationships!

 

I'm an NE stud, and you're the British Elmer Fudd!

 

I mean, for Christ's sake, look at that HTML mug!

 

At least grow a spruce Facebook page and cover part of it up!

 

And let's face it, you're not all that popular !

 

You tossed away users in the GameCube era like they were scraps off your plate!

 

Your whole miserable game is the size of one thread!

 

I could see my way through running that without donning my ban hammer!

 

Don't go toe to toe with me, you bloated, drunk, old man!

 

Why don't you do-si-do on over to a twelve-step program?

 

I'll bust a trust fund lush with my European muscles,

 

So walk softly over here and give my big stick a suckles!

 

 

 

 

Pass me some tactics and a large glass of brandy.

 

I'm about to take you out prematurely like the wii u!

 

I'm the Manager Minister, fresh in a hat and dinner jacket!

 

You look like a mix of Ashley and a Pringles packet!

 

(Ha!) I was saving the planet from an axis of bad games

 

While you were back home opening threads, yes!

 

You were born trigger happy; you're going to choke hard,

 

While I wake up every day and chain smoke new managers!

 

I'll fight you on the beaches; I'll fight you on the beats, yes!

 

Any way you want to fight, I'll fight ya, and I'll beat ya, see?

 

I might be battling you even though I'm toasted,

 

But tomorrow, I'll be sober, and you'll still be roasted!

 

 

Wii u died when it was young, and it was morbid,

 

But at least they didn't ditch me while they were alive like Xpert did!

 

Oh shit! World War too soon?

 

Well, Ashley's dropping bombs, so you best go hide in your tube!

 

(Ooh!) You should be ashamed of your military honor!

 

Everyone knows you're back at home like, "Thank God for Gen playground merge"

 

Don't worry, the NE will give you a pass!

 

Just change your poster to "Keep calm and kiss my NE's ass!"

 

 

Steady there! I don't think it's very fair

 

For Xpert to melee with a GameCube there!!

 

(Ha!) You're no man; you're an overgrown Boy Scout!

 

I should stuff you in a pram just so you can throw some game boys out!

 

They put your fat head on the site to save face,

 

But if NE was a band, then you'd play bass!

 

Look at NE! The dude's about to lose the bout to Xpert!

 

If a bullet to the chest won't stop you, my words will!

 

A bullet can't stop the NE!

 

NE will give Xpert the full deuce!

 

Whatever shit you throw at me, I'll just return to sender!

 

I'll battle to the end, and I will never surrender!

Half-Term-Report-QPR_2698858.jpg

 

Will the Winning Ways of Winston wane against the amazing anger of the Greeks?

 

jose-mourinho-pep-guardiola_3475867.jpg?20160604170703

 

Greeks, following a disapointing draw on the opening day, have concluded a strong first half of the season. The tough-to-spell Tochourochou, aptly named considering his age like a rare breed to dinosaur, has been a monster in 2017, whilst the peerless Haraszti, in goal, has saved 100% of the shots on goal this season. They are flying, with 12 goals in their last 3 games; a team fully settled, balanced, and in their groove, who have conceded only two goals all season. A week with games away at Haden and then Super Star FC could prove tricky, particularly having been outplayed by Haden in their draw.. nonetheless, make it through that and they will be well poised to grab the trophy.

 

Winston’s biggest win was a last-gasp comeback away at Haden; their best moment of the season, whilst being caught off guard by an impressive Leeds side their worst. This reporter claims that Winston’s eye for business has been key once again - recent purchase of experienced defender Tsirogiannis, rumored to be hated by the team and left out of a recent trip to Pizza Express, has played well, and Galisteu, bought in toward the end of last season, has been instrumental to back up an aging Artobolevsky, scoring the descive winner in the 93rd minute against Haden.

 

Winston employed some rare defensive, some claim boring, tactics on the opening fixture of the season that saw a stalemate conclude 0-0. It could yet prove desicive; neither team looks likely to drop more than a few points so the return fixture, at the Greek stadium, will surely be the season’s defining fixture..

 

Haden United finally kick into gear

JoeHadenSoftballArticle_1n6ggqne_v2sr7rrj.jpg

Haden’s first season with United was plagued with poor results, rumors of fights in the dressing room, and a shocking home record. Fans feared the worst when the manager was caught off guard by Super Star FCA in week 1, but were exultant during a recent first league win at the new home stadium of Weybridge Castle against Cubic County. Things suddenly look a lot more rosy..

 

Results have been positive since, with Xicluna and Lewis forming a solid partnership in the center of the pitch. Stuart Dale needs to contribute more; 3 xpert appearances but not a goal or assist to note; once he breaks his duck the goals will surely come flowing. Elsewhere in the squad there are a couple of odd curiosities; talented keeper Bonillo has a save percentage of only 64%, class veteran Mena has yet to G&A, and Wizzini is hardly wizzing around the pitch. Still a project, then, but they are scoring goals, a top 3 finish looks a no brainer, and they will prove decisive in the title race to come; season three will surely be the time for Haden to at last mount a serious title tilt.

 

Zell MIA - manager abandons sub after strong start

sm-u-118-beached-hastings-1%25255B6%25255D.jpg?imgmax=800

 

A sad story for the league - it appears renowned leader Zell has finally left the sub for pastures new. The Sub looked strong in their first few games, and still sit 4th in the table a few directionless games later. A barnstomer of a match against Haden was the manager’s last input, a 5 - 3 diot that many have called the game of the season. The league will suffer. Club legend Rory Slater expressed his disbelief - ‘I signed my life away to the Sub and this is how he repays me??’. We hope Zell will return but if he does not, he will be known as an eternal manager with little left to prove.

 

Super Star FC start with a smash but mixed squad struggle to sustain energy.

maxresdefault.jpg

 

Mystery manager Elsak started his Super Star career with a bang, crushing a hopeless Haden 2 - 0 away. Results since then have been mixed; a spirited game againt the Greeks that they nearly clawed a point from, but they remain the only team in single figures of goals scored. Winston’s manager was said to be nervous about the return fixture.. we will see in mere minutes the outcome here.

 

Super’s away game against Winston showed some serious promise - the manager bossed every tactic going but still came away without a point to show for their efforts. The manager has invested wisely in a core group of 20/1-6’s and this punter suggests they will come good in a couple of seasons; unfortunately for Elsak the players he has been given players that sit behind the curve of the top teams; Pirlo is the standout in Midfield, but is all too easily marked out of games. In time they will grow into the name.

 

Leeds make room for surprises with solid return

 

leeds.jpg

 

The boys from the midlands have reemerged as a force to be reckoned with, after what can be desecribed as a very solid return to xpert football. Aside from an embarrassing 4-0 loss to the Greeks, they have been consistent, particularly in defence, nicking points off the likes of Haden and Winston. Star signing Deme Diana has scored only one goal after his high fee transfer to the club; the supporters want more, more for their money. Dawson looks hugely vulnerable in between the sticks; one wonders how long it will be before he is moved out for a more talented keeper. Regardless of these mistakes, keep an eye out for them in the top 4.

 

Cubic County

Puzzle-Football-Shape-Wooden-Kong-Ming-Lock-Magic-Cube-Educational-Toys-For-Children-s-IQ-Brain.jpg

 

A one nil win against Super Star looked to be a turning point in the season for this square-based squad but it turned out to be a turning point that turned toward things turning out badly, with three straight losses on the bounce since. The squad has some talent, but the fans are crying out for the manager to enter the transfer market to add some experience and talent to the defence. More pressingly, their keeper has the lowest save ratio of any active team, and begs to be replaced.

 

Cubic are scoring goals and will be a force once their defence starts to mesh together. The mid-table battle between SuperStar, Leeds, and Cubic will prove one of the interesting narratives through the rest of the season.

 

Roger Federer distracted by Australian Open renaisance

Roger-Federer-Rafael-Nadal-Tennis-Australian-Open-2017.jpg

 

If one had to guess as the year began which major trophy Roger Federer would have been the first to lift this year, the smart money would have been on the Maddog Cup. In actual fact, an astonishing resurgence has seen roger revel in a really revival that on Sunday culminated in a grand slam open trophy. Even this writer, close to Federer himself, knows little of Roger's return; we will have to wait to the season to see if he will ever be back....

Did you just suggest Leeds was in the Midlands?

 

It seems to be that way. One team in Yorkshire. All Leeds aren't we???

It's like it's Saul Goodman

Holy crap Haden's a dad?

What kind of dad are you going to be, are you going to play it straight or play it colourful?

My manager title is just a name.

NE made a mistake and I will never forget it.

People don't forget you are the failed Xpert admin

As far as NE is concerned the last post is all you are.

I have people waiting for me they don't know that I post they never will, they are protected. When it is my time to go I know I have done everything for xpert I can.

The Winner takes it all.

Is there any chance Haden could make another league if there is interest by Christmas 2022?
