I was on one. I told LM the other day when he trued to do a transfer. Iam getting dealt blow after blow at the minute. I really cant get my head around it all. Every week I get something new to deal with. Its madness. Just a bit sensitive mate and the last of my worries is SM.

Iam sound mental health wise and all is good . Iam just baffled by why all is this coming all at once. It's literally like a cascade . It's very weird though I'll admit that.

Relegation battle is really hotting up. 3 points separating 5 places.

Trying to get a draft off the ground on here. Anyone interested in a Derby Day Draft?

I know there is a bit of crossover in those asked originally for the draft and people in here.

Quite happy with the way Dresden are coping in the post-Messi/Ronaldo era. Was expecting an absolute car crash of a season but we've remained competitive and are in with a decent shout of retaining our Div. 1 status. Losing Reus to injury for the rest of the season is a blow but I have faith in the boys. Happy with the Milik signing as well, an important one after essentially going the whole season without a striker :D

Now if we could just improve our squad depth so that we could finally give it a go in the cup.... we've only won about 3 cup games since the start of this gameworld ;D

Finally got my grubby hands on a back-up left back after going the whole season praying that Alba didn't pick up an injury ;D

No excuses this season, Dresden are going hard for the title! Front 3 of Griezmann, Hazard & Reus. De Bruyne in midfield and Virgil & Hummels at the back. Will that be enough to topple the mighty Dukla? Only time will tell...  :D

Been through a big rebuilding job over the past few seasons. Wanted to reduce our dependence on one player (Messi) and add a bit more depth to the squad. Managed to float around in Div.1 but without ever really challenging since we won our last title, six seasons ago now! Time for that to change...

Unuvar is already sitting in my youth squad mate. Bet you had similar thoughts when I signed a 17 year old Mbappe for 320k back in February 2016  :D

Oh yeah, of course ;D Only thing I regret was not giving Neil a prezzie before leaving as well. The only other manager in that world who's open to trading. Hope he ended up with some good players in the AEK raid.

Then stop coming in here & taking random swipes at me  ;) I left your GW because there's no activity in it and I wanted to reduce the number of teams I'm managing. No hard feelings.

I miss this.. Can the mighty Dresden make it 4 out of 4???

Sporting's squad overhaul is close to completion, will be open to trading with you all again (within reason) next season now the foundations have been put into place! (Robertson not included) ;)

I must say I do love seeing Depor's name forever emblazoned across Sleeping Giants history! To think, Alexis Sanchez was my star man in those seasons  :D

I do miss this world, but I had to let Depor go for my sanity  :-X  I'd completely stopped enjoying the game back then and needed a break. I think I said I'd never manage anyone other than Depor, but I think I also said that about Inter! I should know by now to never say never....

Let me know if you're thinking of returning. The Feyenoord fans deserve better, we've never spent 2 successive seasons in top division(since the first 2). Great squad on paper though.

I'm somewhat interested in a return, mate. But I wouldn't want it to be at the expense of a long term manager!

Betty, it would be great if you made a return to the SG!

Going by my own disastrous experience at PSG, if you do decide to make a comeback, I'd highly recommend you start from scratch in the bottom division and build slowly, still loads of good available players kicking around in there!
