SEASON 1 - JANUARY 2002 Update
THE BEGINNING - Good times... For some...
There is all the league & Cup news.
We have transfers too.
So the new series is under way.
Welcome to any newbies...
Galway Utd's Erik Manolo Escobar was in demand.
6 offers came in.
And he moved to New York for £300,000 just 2 weeks into the update.
Viking Forward, Liamo, was praised in the media.
Eb Fatzensen was to be on the move too.
He was playing Non-League football in the USA for NY Cosmos.
He will sign for Colorado on the 10th January for £350,000.
Stoke City's Mark Henderson was put up for loan.
In late December an offer came in from 2nd Division Spain.
He agreed to join Alaves for the rest of the season.
Older Bobzimehmedovic was looking way above the standard of Division 3 at Burton Albion.
There was some interest from Wigan and Southampton.
But he eventually signed for Wolves for £875,000 on the 30th December.
On to the League Tables.
IN PREMIER LEAGUE
Stoke are in 15th place but 7 points above the drop zone after 21 games.
Mark Henderson is yet to make an appearance for them and is now out on loan.
IN DIVISION 1
Wolves are in 2nd place and look odds on to finish in the top 2.
Older Bobzimehmedovic has just joined from Division 3 but could find himself in the Premier League in 6 months time.
IN DIVISION 2
Bradford are struggling, down in 22nd place. It is tight and any decent run should keep them up.
de la Costainho will be hoping to play better himself too.
IN DIVISION 3
Burton were doing well while Older Bobzimehmedovic was there, he leaves them in the top 3.
In Division 1.
Sparta Rotterdam are in 10th place overall.
They need to improve to get up the table.
Titto hasn't played much, but he'll be hoping to get a chance in the team soon.
In Division 2.
Auxerre are struggling. In 17th place, just 3 points above the drop.
But their striker Arthur Friedenzbimg is standing out. Looking a very handy player.
In Premier Division.
The Season is over.
And Viking were crowned Champions.
So that is a winners medal for Liamo, who found his feet pretty quickly and helped fire his side to the Title.
Lillestrøm finished 3rd, with Watenstad playing most games.
Rosenborg were 4th, Janis didn't get as much game time as he would have wanted.
Tromsø were 5th. Bestinho playing most of the season and can be happy with that.
Odd were in 6th place, in a very tight part of the table.
Dermo Stormo can be happy at the amount he played too and will hope to improve next season.
Tenerife are in 11th place. 8 points behind the top 3.
Goalkeeperinho has made just 1 appearance.
Alaves are in 21st and need to improve to stay up.
Henderson will hope to get some game time in the next few months.
New York finished bottom of the Eastern Conference and so didn't make the playoffs.
Erik Manolo Escobar has played 7 games.
Seattle finished in 3rd place, but with a good points total and so made the playoffs.
Peterazo will be hoping for more game time.
New York Cosmos are non-league. Eb Fatzensen is off soon.
He looked well above that level after his 23 appearances.
Seattle beat FC Dallas 1-0 in the Quarter Final.
In the Semi, they lost to Eventual winners Columbus, 2-1.
Gremio finished 12th in the National First Division.
Jose Rezende has made 2 appearances.
In the Domestic Cups.
In Norway, Liamo helped Viking to the perfect start in the Cup Semi Final, scoring after 2 minutes in a 4-1 win.
They met Sogndal in the final.
They came out 1-0 winners.
So Viking and Liamo complete the domestic double. Nice 1.
In the South American Copa Mercosur,
Gremio lost to River 2-1 in the Quarter Final.
In the US Open Cup, Seattle were beaten 2-1 at the Semi Final Stage by LA Galaxy.
In Continental Competitions.
Molde FK and Rosenborg were both in the UEFA Cup.
They got through Qualifying but were both stopped in tthe 2nd Round.
Molde losing a tight tie 2-1 on aggregate.
And Rosenborg losing on away goals after a thumping 3-0 home win against M'gladbach.
We have No Full Internationals amongst us yet.
But a few have been selected for the Under 21's and so look to have decided their Nationality.
2 Players are out injured at the minute, but just for 2 more weeks, from an original Month out.
NO POINTS AT THIS STAGE.
THEY COME AT THE END OF THE SEASON.

NEW YORK COSMOS
DEADLINE FOR UPDATES IS WEDNESDAY AT 6PM.
Liam off to a flyer!
FFS on Escobar leaving Galway so early for lame ass NY... I guess it's the "concrete jungle were dreams are made" as opposed to Galway where concrete is made... mostly of people's dreams.
Looking at some of the teams picked, I should have been a bit strategic when choosing.
Great stuff wato, glad it's up and running again!
Nice one wato.
Not too happy with the move for my man, I am sure I can help Stoke to improve on their 15th place. Wouldn't mind a loan so much but playing in the 2nd tier is a step down, especially for a team in the relegation spots! Let's hope I can make a difference and keep them up, I certainly have work to do

Hoping Jensen gets sold and that gamst retires, so I can get some more games
Happy to be in the biggest club in Scandinavia
Literally just cottoned on to bob's name...
Gonna go on the transfer list..
Cheers Wato, good to get this back.
Some players have started on fire, might be too early to predict but i reckon some records might fall.
More games please Sparta.
2 trophys already, don't worry about me guys...Setting the world alight
Comparing Dermo Stormo to myself, I really don't seem to be improving like he is!
Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk, because I can't get on a fucking computer because obviously I'm not at home or at work, so what? Wanna fight about it?
Bloody hell Liam's already got 2 trophies under his belt!
Pleased to have already made the step up though, hopefully we'll beat the budgie scum to the top spot. Maybe I'll get a game for Wolves at some point too!
Great start Wato, maintaining your usual excellent standard
Also, didn't Rosenborg actually go through on away goals, rather than out? They won 3-0 at home and lost 4-1 away.

Yes. Rosenborg will have gone through.
But there was no round three in there so assumed they went out cos I didn't look at the screenshot properly until today.
More games = more of a chance they play me
Can I still join?
If you're very very quick.....

Transfer List me please Wato
.........UNBELIEAVBLE first update as well mate
Congrats Liam on tearing it up to start
Not much playing but did well when called. Happy to take part in the series again
Hopefully the second half of the season i can step up to the game!!
Nils Arne Eggen
Happy with my start.
And considering my meagre value, quite a big money move.
Happy with my start but Auxerre performance is worrying. Let's hope we'll have a better 2nd half of the season. Also, when a player is called up by a country's -21, does it happen that he ends up playing for another country when he has a second nationality ?
I dont know..
