Xbox Premiership Interview Special

Written by Nuuthatch

With Season 17 up and running, I thought I would take some time to preview the teams and managers for the Xbox prem. Having beaten the drop last season by the skin of my teeth and drop outs, I set out to interview the managers for their thoughts and expectations for the coming season. So let’s begin with last season’s champion CuteBrownBear.

CuteBrownBear

Season 16: Xbox Premiership, 1st W20-D5-L2

Most anticipated fixture this Season?
Trampfriend for sure, he won the title back in season 16, and I want to win back to back titles. I think he will be a big rival to me once again

Biggest Rival?
Badbrownear!! Because… f**k him!

Best signing in the off season?
Solando my new Argentinian centre forward, he will bring attitude and goals hopefully

Player to look out for this season?
Candreva, like a fine wine he’s getting better with age and is embracing his goal scoring streak

Formation this year?
4-2-3-1 or 3-5-2

Expectations for the Season?
Winning the title again

Who do you think will win the league?
Me of course

Who will get relegated?
No idea but Badbrownbear will because he is s**t!

 

Popemon

Season 16: Xbox Premiership, 2nd W14-D7-L5

Most anticipated fixture this Season?
Smither, we always have close and high scoring games and its a lot of fun. 

Biggest Rival?
Trampfriend, for the last two seasons we have had really close and tense games.

Best signing in the off season?
Kourmpelis my greek god defensive midfielder 

Player to look out for this season?
Hopefully my striker Ekambi can still deliver the goods once again, as without his goals its going to be a struggle

Formation this year?
433 as always

Expectations for the Season?
Was looking to challenge for the title, but we have got off to a rocky start, so mid table would be good.

Who do you think will win the league?
Cutebrownbear again he is so strong and having Candreva makes a massive difference.

Who will get relegated?
The promoted teams seem decent, so a tough call, donkey has just pumped me so I reckon you, me and one other.

 

Trampfriend

Most anticipated fixture this Season?
Cutebrownbear. I lost to him twice last season and wouldn't shut the F**k up about it

Biggest Rival?
Cutebrownbear. Need to get my title back.

Best signing in the off season?
I wasn't overly fussed about transfers but the star situation meant I had to offload one. So I swapped Giroud for Tosun and cash.  Tousn has been great for me in friendlies, hoping he does the business in the league.

Player to look out for this season?
Ljajic. The guy has done the business for many seasons, passing, shooting, free kicks, he's got it all.

Formation this year?
3-5-2 fluid.

Expectations for the Season?
To beat all the bears in the league and maybe win the league.

Who do you think will win the league?
Probably Cutebrownbear the pookeynoodle!

Who will get relegated?
Donkey, DtotheJ and Nuuthatch, tough one to call so having to base it on past league finishes and current form, Sorry Guys!

Best signing in the off season?
Dzyuba, My Russian tank of a striker.

Player to look out for this season?

If I can start taking my chances, I would expect mid table, bit of luck then maybe higher. I fully expect to carry on as normal and fluff my lines.

Who do you think will win the league?
Cutebrownbear, seems to have his tactics down to a fine art. Hard to see past him

Liking Gerson so far.

Formation this year?
3-4-1-2 at the moment

Expectations for the Season?
Mid table obscurity for the 18th Season in the a row.

Who do you think will win the league?
Probably someone playing 7/8 at the back packed in the box smashing long balls down field all game.  But since thats 70% of the league lets go for Trampfriend, probably the best player sticks wise.

BlondeDan, DtotheJ and Doooonnnkkkeyyyy.

 

Nuuthatch

Season 16: Xbox Premiership 9th W7-D5-L15

4-1-2-1-2

Expectations for the Season?
To stay up

Who do you think will win the league?
Cutebrownbear, he just finds a way to win in Fergie time!

Who will get relegated?
Tough one to call, I'm nailed on for relegation if Volland doesn't do the business, DtotheJ think he will find it tough going and hopefully Donkey.

 

So there we have it, Cutebrownbear is going to win the league. I'm getting relegated with DtotheJ and one other. Candreva will tear the league up. Smithers will lose the mind tricks war again, and Scottish will continue his record of 18 years in the Prem.

Going to be another great season!
