    You live in New York City. Doesn't half the fake Italian population there own those shirts?

    What's Davey doing, replacing Charlie Sheen on Two and Half Men?

    Not that I've ever watched the show, of course.

    I've been to NYC too many times to count. It really is a great city. I love running into people like this guy here...

    One too many Calabrese took a Boat to the "new world" after WWII for Italians to earn these stereotypes

    You guys got me all wrong. Take a look at this clip of me and my buddies (I'm the driver). This should give you a better idea of who the real "DaveyGorgeous" is...

    5 pages and about 10 posts that are actually related to official transfer. Let's keep it on topic, if you guys want, start a non-Juve related thread to talk about whatever.

    this draft just doesn't appeal to me much no super big names .
    i also see so many european players taken so highly (well in past years and this year's mock drafts) , yet how many have worked out?
    dirk & pau gasol? obviously others have impacts but i mean there has been alot of darkos too.
    i'd rather take a player very high who is more proven in the american system and then late 1st round etc go for the unknown europeans/south americans/asians/africans etc

    I played 6 seasons as Juventus manager in FIFA11 for the PS3. I won 6 Scudetti, 6 Coppa Italias, 5 Supercoppas, and 1 Champions League. I built my entire team on speed and the ability to shoot the ball. My first season, Quagliarella was an absolute beast. So was Amauri. I bought Sebastien Le Toux and Sheanon Williams from the Union just for kicks. Le Toux lit it up, and Sheanon was a solid defender. I remember I bought Micah Richards, Aly Cissokho, and Gareth Bale after my first season. I played a variation of the 4-3-3, but it was more like a 4-3-1-2 with two strikers and a CAM, but I played the CAM as a CF. I called it "The Attack of Death". It paid off huge. By my third season, I bought Falcao, and he scored 96 goals during the regular campaign. In one match versus a newly promoted Torino team, he bagged 14 in one game. All I did was just tear ass up the field and get it to Falcao, and he would just bang it home. I destroyed small sides. The next year, I bought Lukaku, who, for some reason, was still at Anderlecht. Falcao scored 107 that year, and Lukaku had 84 assists. I was just blowing everybody out. I also bought Sergio Ramos that year, and I just loaded up huge with depth. I beat Man U to go to the CL Final, where I would play Chelski. I didn't think I was going to win because I had lost the previous 2 CL Finals to Barcelona and Man U. I got an early start, and I wound up winning 7-1 to claim my first CL title. That team had Falcao, Lukaku, Marchisio as a DM, Bale, Krasic, Chiellini, Sergio Ramos, Aly Cissokho, and Igor Akinfeev as the keeper. I paid $31 million for Akinfeev because CSKA were always ball busters. After I won the Champions League, I left Juve and became the Inter boss, solely to destroy them. I dismantled that team so horribly. I sold every one of their players. At one point, I had a transfer budget of $217 million. After I sold off everyone, I bought players from the npower League 2 for enormous sums of money. I think I found a player who was rated a 44, and I paid $30 million for him. After the transfer campaign, by the time the season started, Inter had a starting XI compromised of all English 4th division players, no transfer budget, almost no wage budget, and no depth at all. I was fired in October after the team lost all of its games. (I just simmed them.) At the end of the season, they were relegated, and I don't think they ever would have made it back. I actually relished that moment. After that, I started a new managerial career that looked like this...

    2010 - Won MLS Cup with Philadelphia
    2011 - Lost in MLS Cup Final with Philadelphia
    2012 - Took job with Toronto FC, won 2nd MLS Cup
    2013-14 - Took job with FC Kaiserslautern, finished 3rd
    2014-15 - Fired after being in 9th place with Kaiserslautern in February. Expectations were too high.
    2015-16 - Took job with newly promoted Sassuolo. I was expected to win the Scudetto for some reason, and even though we were comfortably in 12th place, I was fired in February.
    2016-17 - Took job with newly promoted Wigan. Won the League Cup, and the FA Cup. Finished tied with Man City for the title, but lost on goal differential.
    2017-18 - I took all my Wigan players and went to Fulham where I won the League Cup, lost in the FA Cup Final, and finished 2nd, just 2 points behind powerhouse Man City
    2018-19 - Finally won the Premier League with Fulham. Lost the League Cup and the FA Cup Finals to Arsenal, of all teams. Beat Man City in the final game showdown for the title. It ended Man City's 5 year run of championships.
    2019-20 - Took Manchester United's offer to be manager, but I stopped playing there.

    I was fully addicted to FIFA 11.

    haha brilliant. i tried to get akinfeev for 27 but turned down.

    how many minute halves do you play? those goal totals are ridiculous, although if i have two games in a week i always use two completely different line ups, using the first team for the stronger game so my player's league goal totals aren't ridiculous. falcao should lead my team in serie A this year with just over 20. iaquinta was a beast for me , lead the league in goals my first 3 seasons before i sold him to upgrade overall talent because i was struggling in later stages of champions league. falcao once got me 6 goals in a 8-0 blowout of napoli, but that is far and away my best single player performance

    do you play online? im like 28-11-4 right now or something hehe

    I don't really play online because the one time I tried to do it, the game slowed down to a crawl, and the guy I was playing against bailed on me.

    I only play 6 minute halves, but I don't play on the hardest level. I think I'm on intermediate level. There's really not a ton of strategy to my game. I just get two really, really fast strikers, and then let them burn the defense. Falcao was just perfect because I think he had like a 92 speed and a 91 finishing. The dude is just an absolute beast in that game. I don't know if I'm going to get FIFA 12 yet because this version satisfies me just fine, and if I wait until FIFA 13 they'll have all 19 MLS teams in it.

    Right now, I'm playing MLB 11: The Show on PS3, but if you're on PS3 also, we can swap screen names, and I'll add you to my friends list, and if you're online playing FIFA 11, I can always swap out, and we can play a game or two.

    oh wow haha i play 7 minute halves, my falcao is overall a 86 with i think 84-86 on speed. i play on the hardest tho you can't just rely on speed anymore, except maybe on the wing but just to run by someone and cross.
    okay my psn is : sp0rty113 ,no need to post yours just say who u r in the request..

    Don't hate. Celebrate.

    I'm so wildly popular that I have to beat chicks off left and right. If it wasn't for the fact that I'm married, I could be getting with at least 3, maybe 4, girls at a time.
