    Man United probably put a release clause in his contract similar to what happened with Delph earlier this year. At least that way they get some form of payment. It works well for De Gea too - he gets a massive pay increase for a year and he won't have to suffer too much fan abuse. And yeah...

    Yeah it's a pretty ridiculous fee for a 19 year old who's only scored 11 goals in his career iirc. He has major potential but 36million is a huge gamble and puts a lot of pressure on Martial. As for the De Gea fiasco, I genuinely don't know why Real Madrid left it this late considering United...

    Metagame NP: RU Stage 10: Your Makeup is Terrible

    Moth is obviously very good atm, I like the sub / sleep / buzz / qd set the best. Roost is cool too but sub has so much utility against slower squads vs. pkmn like mola. Plus sub + sleep is an easy strategy to exploit since there's a good chance you can get a boost and a free sub. My main ways...

    Group A: Paris St-Germain, Real Madrid, Shakhtar Donetsk, Malmo - pretty straight forward here, Real just have more quality and depth than PSG while Shakhtar and Malmo are average compared to the other two. Group B: PSV Eindhoven, Manchester United, CSKA Moscow, Wolfsburg - United are the...

    It's Hard to Make This Team In-Game [Peak at 89!]

    This is a solid spikes offense build that has good offensive and defensive synergy. Houndoom / virizion / melo / flygon is a nice attacking core and is supported well by qwilfish + esca on the defensive side. There are a few problems though. Mainly there is the lack of a tyrantrum switch in -...

    Sub QD Venomoth

    This team handles most things well defensively. Tangrowth + Aroma + Mlix gives you a stellar defensive backbone and gives you solid checks to pkmn like scrafty, tyrantrum and virizion. The use of Tangrowth here is good too, as it acts as a blanket check to multiple physical threats but also...

    Defensive + JoltGon core

    jolteon / flygon / amoonguss / bronzong / jellicent / scrafty This seems like a pretty solid balanced team. Bronzong + jelli + amoong + flygon covers a lot of the metagame bar sigilyph. The former seems like a pretty tricky issue but you can play around it with scrafty and specs jolteon. The...
