The winter mercato will open in a couple of weeks. I am not sure if we will open it following the Matchday 13 weekend (the halfway point of our league season), when the actual Serie A winter mercato opens, or somewhere in between. I will decide soon.

Here is the credit budget status for all XT Serie A teams:

ac milan foreva - 580 spent, 20 remaining
Amiumtaur - 465 spent, 135 remaining
Andrey - 579 spent, 21 remaining
Anomander Rake - 600 spent, 0 remaining
CinqueDiMaggio - 541 spent, 59 remaining
Deano - 571 spent, 29 remaining
ilgenio - 583 spent, 17 remaining

AS Ripi is on the verge of a firesale. With the exceptions of Totti and Kaka', anyone is available for a trade.

Specifically looking to deal Maccarone, Gasbarroni, Vucinic, Cambiasso, Martinez, Kharja, or Galloppa. Any serious deals will be strongly considered. As long as the deal isn't an insult, like offering 2 reserves for a sure starter, anything is possible.

Looking for a striker, offensive minded midfielder, or a solid SM.

I hope Almiron leaves serie A so i can sell him for my bidding price and buy a starting CM or CB (for whatever team as long as he starts).

These are the only 2 positions i need to enforce.

Aslong as it somewhat coincides with the real transfer windows deadline, it would be swell. Wouldnt be fun to compete for the few players around with those who have so many credits :pp

Fingers crossed a big player enters the league so I can snap him up.

I made a note of four players I want to sign on the free transfers list already.

Gamberini, Delvecchio and Amauri are keepers for me. Any other players we can talk.

My defense is set and solid, but I'm looking to retool my midfield and attack. I'm looking for a more attacking-minded central midfielder and will almost certainly be dropping the ever-injured Paro. Kerlon is also probably going to go as it seems he is unable to break into the Chievo first team and I can't afford to hold onto him for the future. Shevchenko and Zalayeta are almost certainly on the way out too, Cossu I will keep.

R10, I might be interested in Vucinic and/or Kharja. I might be willing to part with Floro Flores and/or Santana for these players. What do you think?

Zárate and Maicon are my only players that I will absolutely not part with, but it will have to take a good offer to prize away some of

Vucinic (10 starts: 2 goals, 1 assist) has more upside than Floro Flores (7 starts, 4 subs: 3 goals, 4 assists) who is not even a sure starter. There is a reason why you want Vucinic when Floro Flores is having a better year...Floro Flores is set to ride the bench. :D

Kharja (13 starts: 2 goals) has done more than Santana (8 starts, 3 subs: 0 goals, 2 assists) who is prone to injury as well.

I'd have to decline on both offers. I am trying to improve, I think either deal makes my team worse.

Also, don't forget the "hate" factor. I had Floro Flores on my team last season and he was one of the worst players in the league. I had Santana on my team in 2004/05 and he was awful. I can't forget these things cause I hate them both...haha.

Dude I have Denis and Lavezzi so getting Zalayeta would be VERY sweet since that would mean that I will always have all Napoli main attackers.

How about getting one of your own in Stellone???
He seems to be breaking in the 1st team for Torino recently and he even scored on Sunday and I think he has many more goals in him.

Well you know him best so what do you say?
Zalayeta for Stellone straight swap?

Hey R10,

Where can I find the spreadsheet with all the players on it? I forget whether or not we are still using the briefcase, or what the password is if we still have it. Thanks!

EDIT: Also, will Corriere have the accumulated assist statistics or is there another place where you are finding them? GdS doesn't have them.

@acmf - Still considering the offer, I'm going to wait until the market opens before making any decisions.

AI Melo hacked and destoyed the briefcase so everything must be done via email. I have everyone's email addresses so one week before the winter market opens, I will send one mass email to all with the rosters and free agents. Please do not ask me to send the list before then. It will save me time to do it just one time.

I don't know where you can find goals/assists stats besides Gazzetta dello Sport. Perhaps the official Serie A site?

At this time, Matchday 13 (our halfway point) is this weekend, December 6/7. We will likely open the winter mercato on December 15.

Sounds good about the market, though where do you get those assist statistics? Did you just add them up from our recorded scores?

To naervod: yes, I added up the assists from the accumulated scores.

To Amiumtaur: the winter mercato will remain open until the actual Serie A one closes.

Considering that I wasted 65 credits on Crespo, who hardly even gets to warm the San Siro bench, let alone play a match, I'm hoping he leaves for Madrid so I'll regain 65 credits for a winter signing :hopeful:

I will when I think of a system to use. We are not using the Spanish one. I'd like to think up of something entirely ours and with emphasis on simplicity. I don't want to put something in place that is complicated and involves people losing their best players. We need to make a system where there is a budget in place, player contracts with salary per season, etc.

The loan idea is something I want to do, but I can't see how we do it until the new system comes into place. Then theoretically we would have "money" to give other teams for the 6 month loan of a player. For example, why would anyone loan me a player for my lousy 9 credits available?

Also, we can't really loan players out when we just retain 4 of them. I am keeping Totti, Kaka', Maggio, and Simplicio...so if I am loaning out Cambiasso, he won't be returning to me next season as I won't own him.

Any thoughts on this matter are appreciated.
