    Check this out: Sky I hope they're wrong. They reckon we'll be lucky to get a whole season out of him.

  4. Sean Clohessy was scouted yesterday...

    I was sitting next to Mick Harford and Karl Robinson from MK Dons at Wembley yesterday and they were there to check on the performance from Clohessy and Murphy from Crewe.

    Gutted - girls' football

    Some of you may remember about this time last year I wrote for advice about a girl at school with some pretty good potential in the old football ability stakes and some of you were kind enough to give contacts etc. Found out today that she's been scouted by Colchester and is being assessed for...

    FM08 Challenge 1

    Ok so a few of us addicts are all going to start with the same team, and see who can do best, abiding by these rules: You can only sign players that have been scouted by you (to make the game more realistic). You must stay with the same team, if you leave (resign/sacked) you are out of the...

    I know a Hull city fan and he said they are looking at none other than Kevin Maher. Apparantly they have scouted him on numerous occasions, and Peter Taylor has reportedly been a big Maher fan for a while now. Didn't Hull come in for him just before Kev signed a contract extention? Peter...
