    Lots of unknowns this season, boys. We have the talent of Redwings, who has been here before and clawed his way to the top, and Go Devils with his new team (with KILLER speed, I might add), eager to get back to Serie B.

    Geneseo and Drunkensoldier have both been thisclose to promotion in seasons past. Will this be the season one of them makes it?

    LasVegasFC is an unkown entity, but his performance in the Spring Break tourney is nothing to sneeze at.

    Yak61 played remarkably well with an underrated Derby County in Season 4. The more talented West Ham should prove very capable in his hands.

    Or will Frenchie finally find a scoring touch to go along with his defense and mount a charge? Will Bling_CO or Danwin put together a full season and emerge as a shocker? Will County5 find new success with his English side?

    Geneseo and Galatasaray was just a hair behind the top 3 last season, and I think he's got a team that can put it all together, but I really see this season being quite the race for promotion.

    I had to vote for Galatasaray considering how close they were last season. I think redwings can regain a spot in Serie B, but it'll be tougher to do that w/ LA Galaxy instead of Hamburger SV

    Well...

    Since I haven't played anyone in Serie C in a Friendly I'm going to have to vote for myself (I really don't want to!) so maybe I can use this vote as motivation heading into the new season

    lol


    Good luck to everyone in S5 for that coveted promotion!

    Wow... I like my chances to win too but didn't think I would take down the majority of the votes like this. Not sure I like that vibe (read: bullseye) for me going into the new season... but we'll roll with it.

    Galatasaray lost a key offensive threat in Kazim Kazim in the roster update ... and many of those wins I earned to finish a close 4th last season came with some pretty dramatic late goals and such... Hoping to live up to the hype!

    I didn't realize Kazim was gone. He scored 90 percent of your goals against me. I may actually have a chance against you this season!!

    They didn`t really lose him, they let him go, because he sucked recently. They got a few talented Turkish players. Elmander,Melo,Baros,Riera, Ujfalusi,Eboue, Goalkeeper Muslera ( these are the key foreign players) Selcuk,Sabri, Necati, Engin, Emre ( Turkish players) . You have a really nice squad there my friend. Kazim might have been good in the game,but sucked in real life LOL. Galatasaray made the playoffs on top of the league, they got elimanted from Turkish cup yesterday, and they are not looking very good for the playoffs in my eyes :). Hopefully my Besiktas will collect as much points as possible in the playoffs and make it to the CL. I am just giving you an update on thrm incase you are not following them . Good luck in thr game, but hopefully they will suck in the league as well as Fenerbahce LOL.

    No that's a good update. Thanks... Before using them, I had only heard of Felipe Melo, Milan Baros and Muslera - mostly because I follow Serie A and international soccer the most. Riera was quite an addition to the online version - saved my bacon a few times. So sounds like they have an "MLS style" playoffs after the regular season to determine champions and Champions League spots? That's unique in Europe.

    This year is the first time ever for a playoff style. Thanks to cheaters Fenerbahce. They did it, so they can save Fenerbahce ( It`s a long story). I am kind of glad tho, because we are not doing so well, but we still have a shot to be the champion, if we do well in playoffs. Don`t forget about Servet and Gokhan Zan in your bench.(both can play CB) They both are pretty good as well, I don`t know about their rankng in the game tho. Sercan Yildirim is probably is the fastest guy you have on your team.

    You don't understand my strategy to get you in the serie B. I try to feed these guys with confidence. It's not good to be overconfident sometimes , it usually backfires :) LOL . I'm just trying to help you :)
