    Basically on the tactics page the percentage fitness (which is where it was on the old interface) now indicates predicted fitness for the next match rather than the current fitness. To see the current fitness you have to go to your squad then select the "physical" filter.

    Instead of saying there current Fitness like it use to it now says what there Fitness will be for the next game.
    Its on the Tactics page under Condition so say on Sunday after playing it will normally say 75% it now says 96% as thats there estimated fitness for your next fixture

    York City Gain Two Loans!


    York City Football Club have announced the arrival of two loaned in players, both from Premier League teams.
    Gueïda Fofana has joined York's ranks from Wigan Athletic, while Sebastián Coates is on loan from Manchester City.
    Fofana is a 20 year old defensive midfielder from France. Among Lyon's youth team until a few days ago when he left for Wigan, the young midfielder showed great promise at an early age, joining Lyon from Le Havre. He is of Guinean and Malian decent, although he plays for France's national youth teams, and captained the team that won the UEFA 2010 Under 19 European Championship.

    Fofana lifting the European Championship Trophy, 2010.


    Coates is also 20 years old, and he is a Uruguayan centre half who Manchester City signed on the 30th August from Club Nacional. He is very tall, 1.99M, or 6 feet, 6 inches. He was born in Montevideo, the capital of Uruguay to a Scottish father and an Uruguayan mother. He joined Nacional at the age of 11, and worked his way up through the age groups, captaining each side. He won 2 league titles with Nacional, and was voted as the "Best Young Player" of this year's Copa America tournament, which Uruguay won.

    Both players are expected to start in York's game tonight against Gateshead.
    York City manager Tom Bateson was asked to comment on the loaned-in players:
    I am extremely happy with the two players I have managed to get on loan. Both Seb and Fofana are fantastic young players, and I would especially like to thank the managers of Wigan Athletic and Manchester City, The Messiyah and Rick James for allowing us to have them with us for the season.
    Tonight's fixture starts at 20:00, and a full match report will soon be available.

    City Grab Gateshead Draw!


    York City earned a point last night with a 2-2 draw against Gateshead on the opening day of the season.
    York, playing in their new red and blue home strip at Bootham Crescent, were behind at half time to two Richard Offiong strikes. Georgi Iluridze however equalised in between Offiong's goals, and Liam Henderson netted in the second half to give City the point.



    York started brightly, with the three thousand string crowd right behind them. Iluridze made a great run down the wing, only for him to deliver a lacklustre cross. Liam Darville kept hold of the ball for a while and twisted and turned his way through the Gateshead midfield, until eventually being robbed of possession. Then with York on the attack, only a fantastic last ditch tackle by Gateshead winger Regattin saved Gateshead from an early goal.
    Completely against the run of play, Offiong broke away and cheekily chipped Westburg in the York net, on the fifteenth minute.
    Anthony Ampaipitakwong then showed his class, the ex-San Jose Earthquakes man striking a wonderful shot at goal, only for the Gateshead 'keeper- at full stretch- to push it away. Then, less than five minutes later, he hit an extremely dangerous cross in front of goal, inches in front of Henderson's out-stretched leg and out of play.
    From the goal kick Gateshead attacked, and within two minutes Quentin Westburg made a marvellous double save, after palming the initial shot, he was up and blocking the rebound.
    Peter Till then was booked for a high challenge. Gorosito was then booked for Gateshead for time wasting.
    York then held back for a few minutes, soaking up the pressure with ease. But, on the thirty-fourth minute, Iluridze grabbed the ball the ball about half way between the goal and the half way line, in the centre. Using his ridiculous pace and power, he bulldozed his way through four challenges, beating both Gateshead centre backs, to unleash a pile driver of a shot that the Gateshead 'keeper had no chance with.
    York continued with the pressure, and after uncertainty in the Gateshead defence, Sakai booted it clear. From the clearance 'Head broke, and the ball was squared to Offiong who had drifted out of the game since his goal, and he luckily beat Westburg while he was unsighted.
    Westburg then made a routine save a minute later, and after booting the ball back upfield, the referee called for half time.
    Early in the second half Jamier Watson, the York winger, was booked for a mistimed challenge.
    Watson immediately made up for his booking, by charging down the left wing past both Gateshead right sided players. He then slowed in the corner, and played the ball back to Ampaipitakwong who had ran across to the left to help Watson out. He then delivered a sublime cross into the box, where Liam Henderson rose above the defenders and glanced a header into the top right corner, to equalise for York City.
    Coates then began to boss the play, giving York the advantage on possession, until Gorosito interrupted the play by inexplicably spitting in the face of Henderson, earning himself a second yellow card, and an early bath.
    Gateshead then began to sit back, and only had one shot in the final twenty minutes, and seemed to be content with the draw.
    The Man of The Match award went deservedly to a York player, the scorer of York's second goal, Liam Henderson.
    York play tonight in a friendly against Newport County.

    York City reveal new manager!
    York City football club have appointed Tom Bateson as their manager, after Gary Mills' unexpected departure last week.
    Mills, who had been in charge of York City for just over a season, announced that he would be resigning, on personal grounds at a press conference last week.
    However York City's board did not reveal their replacement for him until yesterday.
    Tom Bateson's arrival at the club was actually made the day after Mills resigned. Since then he has been very active in the transfer market, signing no less than 19 players.
    A link can be made between a lot of the players however. Many of the are American, which is unusual for a Division 5 club. One journalist reports that this could be to do with Bateson's love of American Sports, joking that he may rename the team "Old York Yankees". Many question his ability as a manger, saying his new signings are 'sub-standard' and 'physically not good enough for this country'.
    His activeness in the market though has brought great media attention, with Goal.com gaining an 'exclusive' with one of the directors and giving a short biography on all 19 of Bateson's signings.



    The Press has however gained an interview with the manager himself, ahead of much larger media corporations.
    Hi Tom, thanks for doing this with us.
    No problem.
    So, how did you react when you got the job as York City manager?
    Well, I sent the application via email, after I saw on the club website that Gary had left. When a club representative turned up on the same day and told me I had been made the manager, I was utterly shocked, I couldn't believe it.
    What are your hopes for the club this year?
    I would really like to get out of this division. I think we have the talent and the depth to do this, so that is my main target.
    Any other secondary or less important targets?
    I want to sign a big player at some point in the next few season. Someone who is known by a lot of people. Nobody too good, I'm not going to pursue Messi or Ronaldo, but I would love to see a player at a larger club than us join soon.
    Which clubs do you think will be challenging you this year?
    Hard to say really, but I think that Wrexham and Darlington will be going for the top prizes this season.
    Who do you think is your biggest asset?
    Well, my two loaned in guys are my best players. Of people that I own, my goalkeeper, Quentin Westburg is fantastic, and my forwards, Henderson, Ruben and Iluridze are great players too.
    What do you think will be vital to your success?
    Considering out squad, the only thing that could hold us back would be my managerial ability, haha.
    Why did you choose to sign all of the Americans?
    Well, they are all very talented, committed players. If they were English, the media wouldn't have a problem. I also signed a Qatarian, a Georgian, a Spaniard and an Italian. I don't see what the problem is.
    Any chance of the club being renamed the "Old York Yankees"?
    Haha, no chance, I don't like the Yankees. I'd rather name the club the "Old York Mets" but the Mets aren't very good anyway.
    Thank you for your time Tom, and good luck with the season.
    No worries, thanks.
    York also announced their new kits for the season yesterday, at a special presentation ceremony at the ground.
    A top designer known only as "ACM" designed the kits, which received positive reviews at the ceremony.
    The home kit is in York's traditional red and blue colour scheme, and is made by Nike.



    York's new away kit caused quite a stir at the ceremony for it's originality. It is in white and blue, again made by Nike. But designer ACM went for a new design, incorporating different styles onto the shirt, to great effect.



    Both kits are sponsored by Rowntrees, who have their factory in York, and parent company Nestle's product 'Kit Kat' used to sponsor York's Bootham Crescent stadium.
    We at The Press wish Bateson and the club the very best of luck with the new season, which kicks off tonight, and sees York face Gateshead at Bootham Crescent.
    Idea of having this like a newspaper goes to 433. Massive thank you to ACM for designing the kits. Thank you to Manchester City and Wigan for providing loans.

    Nah' date=' like others have said Super Mario is not all that super, especially when he doesn't play, since he's behind like 3 other much better strikers at city anyway, and Bale, well, he plays for the yids, and they're not going to get Champions league, so no chance of his heroics against Inter again.
    Hazard though, woah, what a player, keep him definitely
    Lamela for me, then Schurrle, then maybe Griezmann
    Safest and best bet is with Lamela definitely
