  1. Hope this shows up clearly enough, systems were down at work today so decided to have a look through and see where everyone was at - be interesting to repeat this in a couple of months and see how it's changed. Most stats should be obvious, but 'Est T20 debt' is the estimated amount a club will have paid in wages by turn 20 which (for most) is when TBs will be up; based on this and squad sizes I've highlighted grey the teams that might be in a bit of bother as they might not have the squad depth required to sell their way out of debt....but we'll see! 'Wages to value' is the percentage of squad value that the wage bill is per turn, thus the lower the better. The whole thing is sorted by 'Squad value v Cost' which is current squad value minus what was originally paid - yours truly tops the list at the moment while some folk clearly overpaid in the heat of the bidding wars - however....it's very early days yet and risers and droppers will inevitably shake things up as we go forward
  2. Delighted to report our brand of silky football and star name drawing power appears to be winning over the locals - our crowd tripled from the first game to a whopping 1,500+ Still lost another £400k though, so just the -£1.4m after 3 games (2 of them at home!)
  3. VS The Riverhounds make the relatively short trip of 254 miles down the interstate to play Dayton Douche Lions in their first ever CanAmJam fixture, and after a late flurry of signings the Hounds boss will have a headache trying to decide which line-up to unleash on the Lions. He could go with the experienced XI of: Boruc (87) Hutchinson (87) Marquez (87) Kucher (88) Ze Roberto (86) Cambiasso (87) Linetty (85) Hleb (85) Robinho (88) Ronaldinho (85) Klose (89) Alternatively he may field a mixture of youth and experience: Lopez (85) Orban (83) Mina (84) Salcido (85) Jorge (83) Verre (84) Beasley (83) Mayoral (82) Aimar (84) Malcom (83) Grafite (85) Or, he may wish to really go with youth and field the Riverpups: Steffen (70) Calabria (80) Dinga (76) Kutepov (78) Martella (80) Ascacibar (82) Van De Beek (80) Pavon (80) Golovin (80) Boga (80) Boye (80) In fact the only players most observers feel will not feature at all are: Tche (78), Llamas (75), Llorente (78), Blas (77), Clayson (78), Thompson (77), Thill (65), Scammacca (70), Rigo, (70) and Zanellato (70).
  4. Current Pittsburgh Riverhounds 1st XI: pparently after 2 screenshots I'm too near my upload allowance to post the pic of my 2nd XI: Steffen (70) Orban (83) Mina (84) Salcido (85) Jorge (83) Ascacibar (82) Beasley (83) Boga (80) Aimar (84) Malcom (83) Mayoral (82)
  5. Also on the upside you’ll avoid bidding wars and be able to buy players at CV as most if not all of us are skint now, so you’ll get better value for money
  6. This is where the Hounds find ourselves with about half the cash gone (89 rated Klose is up front underneath the subs!). Ok so most of the oldies are nostalgic droppers but they should hold the fort until the youngsters rise and I've not really overpaid for any of them.
  7. You would think....tbh it's more to make the point about potential crowd sizes rather than the wages - I suspect the crowds might be very small so for a 88-rated team you basically need to set aside £15m in wages.
  8. As the bids get underway, might be worth bearing in mind that based on £20 a ticket, crowd income will roughly be: if 500, 20x 500 x 17 = £170,000 for the season if 1000 = £340,000 if 2000 = £680,000 Just 1 x 86 rated player at £18k x 36 = £648,000, 87's are on £936k and 88's on £1.296m. Thought I'd throw that out there while everyone is going for the big stars - very rich economy might mean the tickets cost more but then again we are in D4/ D5.....there'll be other income too of course but just some food for thought!
  9. I'll get all the info back up on the opening post at some point, it's more Nick I feel for as he'd put all that effort into that great post and a few others had done some lengthy posts too. Regarding bidding: everyone from the original 21 who were interested are either now in or have been PM'd by me (in-game) asking that they apply for their club asap. Was unaware of this, but apparently in an empty squad custom no bids can be made in the first 48 hours so looks like we should be able to bid by 6am (UK-time) on Friday morning - on the bright side that's plenty of time to get a few more bodies in and get those short-lists sorted!
  10. Hi everyone, the main thread has er, vanished so post everything CanAmJam related here for now until Craig sees if he can retrieve the main thread. The gameworld was created earlier today, but annoyingly I am unable to offer jobs out for some reason so anyone who has not done so already please apply for your team - i.d. is 341872. Edit: The word is that the original thread is officially gone (always a great thing to happen on launch-day ), so I'll edit this post when I have the chance with all of the main info. For anyone looking to join up the main points are: 5 divisions of 18; every available USA and Canadian team on SM, plus several Jamaican teams completing D5 only D4 and D5 teams can be managed in a race to the top empty squads £60m starting balance very rich economy (as we expect some brutally low crowds in the lower divisions) 4 up 4 down Currently there is one spot in D4 (at London SC if I know you), otherwise any unmanaged club in D5 can be applied for.

  11. Hi,

    can you add me as a friend in-game (Stewart Lauder) so I can offer you your CanAmJam team?


  12. Hi Stuart, Thanks for your kind words mate but i stand by my decision, hopefully i haven't wasted too much of your time and once more i wish you and the other lads the best of luck in what i am sure will be a very fulfilling GW. 

  13. Hi sent a friend request in-game to offer you your team in:


  14. Something a bit different and not too serious, few rules still to be nailed down so all input is welcomed:


  15. Hi Ed/ everyone, here is the link to the CanAmJam League's own thread: http://forum.soccermanager.com/topic/159050-canamjam-boom-bust/ Ed if you can get in quick and reserve yourself a couple of posts for the potential team draw and potential GK draft (apologies for not being able to discuss with you first before volunteering you, happy to research the GK's for you to save time) - cheers and ta for allowing me to hi-jack your thread for a bit!
