    Watford vs Sheffield United We want to win all our games but realistically we have to focus on one competition this season and our main focus is to finish as high as we can in Division One. The cup is always a good opportunity for players to be rotated and to give other players a chance to show their worth, Osborn and Freeman both get an opportunity to showcase that today. Good luck Bedoza

    Inexplicable really, away from home down to 10 men they have a better attack and defence and we some how sneak away with a win. Apologies to Ed.

    Opening weekend of the new campaign and with four new teams in the league we look at the match ups in game one. First up we have last seasons eighth place at home to the seventh place as Southampton @Rivaldo10 take on Bournemouth @Neilr. Last season it was a close game that the Saints edged 1-0 with a goal from Richarlison. Both teams have been quite in the close season transfer market so can we expect the same again with Richarlison leading the line for Southampton or can the Cherries pull off a win on opening day this season which they didn't last season? Queens Park Rangers are at home to Watford @BeDoZa in the next game on the card. Last season QPR finished bottom in what can only be seen as a poor season for @Joe and his team. He will be looking to improve on that this season. Watford on the other hand made the play-offs finishing fourth in the table. Watford have improved their front line by bringing in Martinez and they have cleared a few players out as they have looked to re-jig their squad a bit in a bid to get up his time round. QPR have been noticeably quiet in the market apart from bringing in midfielder Rodri to boost a good midfield. This match was a bore draw last season so both sides will be looking to at least score in this one but which way will it go? Manchester City @Deefa who like QPR had a disappointing season finishing ninth have a home tie to start against West Ham United @macca who finished 6th last season, just missing the play offs. City have been very quiet and have not done a thing in the close season in adding or changing their squad. West Ham on the other hand while not prolific have strengthened the defence bringing in Lindelof from Spurs and Schar from the auction. This game last season was a 1-1 draw with Nasri putting the home side in front in the first half only to see Wolf equalise for the Hammers in the second. Will that strengthened defence see Hammers change that result this time? Burnley @stocko74 who lost out on automatic promotion to Stoke, finishing second, start at home to Tottenham Hotspur @Daniel. Both these teams have moved in the transfer market. Burnley shifting four out and bringing in two defenders from Liverpool, a midfielder and two strikers in a bid to win the league this time. Tottenham on the other hand have got rid of three players but then been the biggest spenders shifting over £300m on just two players to bring in a defender and a midfielder. With that amount of expenditure you'd expect the Spurs board will want big result this season and see Spurs pushing for promotion and certainly finishing higher than their fifth spot last time out. Last season this game ended 0-0 but with the changes to both teams should we expect some goals this time? Finally we have two games between the new boys which is the unknown to one and all. All the new teams have been very busy in the pre-season off loading players and bringing in new ones in a bid to make a splash first time out in the league and off course not get that wooden spoon. It is too hard for us to call what will happen here but suffice to say the teams that didn't do any business could have four new ones trying to ensure they aren't the bottom team this season and can one or more even surprise in the league? We will see. The fixtures though see Brighton v Sheffield United and Derby County v Norwich City.

    Tom contacted me for a random Ed. I passed it on to Daniel this afternoon.

    He has to 18 rated so if he levels up he will earn the abs, if played, until they level up to 19. Then to continue getting abs an 18 rated needs to play.

    We've heard rumours of The Reds wanting to find a long term replacement for Cesc Fabregas and after sending out a scout to South America, the red side of the Merseyside can welcome their new midfielder. But first things first. Cesc Fabregas is still a vital player for us and will continue to play a big part in our first team roster. Fabregas has been a key player since he arrived from Chelsea almost ten seasons ago and he will continue to lead the way at Anfield. But the fact is he is getting older and we needed to look for the future. We've signed a very talented player from Brazil and he will get the chance to play alongside Fabregas and learn from one of the best midfielders in the game. So, the player we decided to sign was Gerson from Flamingo. He is a great talent and one of few in the roster who is a box-to-box midfielder. He will now get the chance to play in Europa and there is no better place to be than in the Premier League. We will give Gerson time to get to know his team-mates, the city and the language. We don't expect him to go straight into the starting line up and he need time to establish himself at Merseyside. But we've secured a quality player and we expect big things from him in the future. With Gerson arriving at Anfield, we had too many midfielders in the team. We transfer listed Victor Wanyama and Siem De Jong and both has found a new club. The two team-mates will continue to play together after Sheffield United decided to buy both. Wanyama cost them £55m while De Jong was announced The Blades player today after the two clubs agreed to a £40m deal. Both will be a huge asset to The Blades and their in the best hands when they get the chance to work with Matthew Bethell. We wish both of them all the best in the steel city! Else where we've seen two new players joining the youth side. Before the new season the FMFA board announced new rules in the U23 set up and when playing a 18 rated player for at least 60 minutes in every you earn yourself bonus abs at the end of the season. Each club can earn up to 1100 bonus abs and we've decided to take advantage of the new rules. But the only 18 rated player we had in our roster was Oliver Woods and we had to bring in a couple of players to give us more options. We've signed Nick Kinina and James Darius from the unattached list for £24m to give us three players to rotate when using 18 rated players in our starting line up. I don't think we'll see more transfers at Anfield but we could end up loaning out Declan Rice. We've not decided if we want to stick with six midfielders this season. It all depends on which formation we decide to play this season.

    Sheffield United Football Club Issue 1 - Manager makes a lot of changes ahead of new season. Sheffield United Football Club are new additions to Division One in FMFA and it's already obvious that new manager Matthew Bethell has plans to improve the club from top to bottom. Bramall Lane supporters have been fortunate enough to welcome some top players over recent weeks including the likes of Victor Wanyama, who signed from Liverpool for £55,000,000 pounds and Real Madrid forward Karim Benzema, who arrived at the club for £40,500,000 pounds, the Frenchmen is looking to make a statement in Division One during his first season at the club.

Key signings are the likes of Jamal Lewis and Ben Godfrey from Norwich City who offer the club an opportunity to grow young players, whilst 23 year old defender Joe Bennett has been promoted from the academy. Filipe Luis and Jose Jolebas will offer the club experience and tutoring for young players whereas Scott Malone has been bought in for £12m but will be sold to the FMFA sales.

While third choice goalkeeper Simon Moore has been sold to the FMFA sales.

Davy Klassen was the club's first official signing when he signed from Tottenham Hotspur for £30,000,000 pounds boasting very good stats for a defensive midfielder, whereas Pablo Piatti was bought in to offer an attacking options and improve the club's chances in the final third in the upcoming campaign.

Oliver Norwood and Samir Carruthers were both sold to FMFA.

Billy Sharp has been loved by the Blades fans for years but manager Matthew Bethell believes his time has passed and he will now be playing his trade at Carrow Road. Leon Clarke, Lys Mousset, Ched Evans and Callum Robinson were all sold to the FMFA sales due to a lack of interest once again.

The former Italian international signed from Burnley for £20,000,000 pounds. M_Balotelli 28 ita 2 3 4 24 26 375 871 271 841 - £20m The club also pursued the option to use both of their loan slots with Yoshinori Muto and David Brooks both signing for the club on loan. Matthew spoke to his good friend Chelsea manager Aaron Burrows to arrange a deal to sign the Welsh midfielder David Brooks, whereas Yoshinori Muto was signed in order to play first team football alongside Karim Benzema this season.

    Every so often through the season we will be having a spot auction so keep checking for them. The first one is for October and will be for a Defender. It is slightly different though there will be both a senior defender and a youth defender on offer. You can only bid on one of them not both. So the question is do you want to bring youth in for the future or do you need to improve the senior squad? First up then is the senior defender who has been sold to the FMFA and was clearly under rated. The FMFA have reviewed his stats and can now offer N_Otamendi 30 arg 1 25 5 3 26 300 300 300 300 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 100 Starting bid for this defender is £30,000,000 The youth defender has great potential and could be risked as a starter in some senior teams. Who we have is I_Konate 20 fra 1 23 7 2 24 300 300 300 300 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 100 Starting bid for this youth defender is £18,000,000 Auction Rules (please read) 1) You can only bid on one or other of the players not both. If you bid on both then your bids will not count for either. 2) Bids MUST BE to @FMFA Auction and have player your team and bid as the subject, e.g. N_Otamendi, Everton, £30,000,000. 3) Finances will be as you have at Monday 7th October 2019 when the auction opens which will be after this weeks finance updated. 4) The auction will open at 12.00pm GMT on Monday 7th October 2019 and close at 12.00pm GMT on Wednesday 9th October 2019 so only two days but you have had 5 days to view this and decide if you will bid and on whom. 5) If by chance there are two or more winning bids for the same player then the earliest bidder will win.
