  1. Re: loan players playing against parent club I don't demand or expect anything; this is a discussion forum for suggestions and improvements. if you feel that such discussion is pointless why don't you just butt out and leave it to those who would like to discuss ideas? Of course things aren't going to change on the basis of a few or even many posts, and maybe they don't even need to change anyway, that doesn't mean that people wouldn't like to talk about them. But I would hazard a guess that there would be far more open discussion here if you didn't have the compulsion to torpedo anyone who comes up with something that either you've heard before or don't think is of value. What exactly do you think that your destructive criticisms achieve? I don't know but I suspect that are quite a few who have been "Shelbourned" who probably won't come back to the forum. Perhaps that thought makes you happy, sadly it wouldn't surprise me. Regarding your previous posts you are prolific and I've resisted the temptation to read them all. But just because you post a lot that doesn't mean that your opinions count for more than anyone else's, however long you have been making them. I can respect knowledge and experience when it is used constructively, but not when it is to be dismissive and rude. But that won't matter to you either because you are so far up your own insides you can't see the light of day.
  2. Re: loan players playing against parent club @shelbourne FC - firstly I am a "she" not a "he". Secondly I didn't demand anything, I quoted the premier league rule, I left it for others to decide how significant they thought it was. Believe it or not but some people like to think for themselves rather than follow your directives. Maybe you should get out more.
  3. Re: loan players playing against parent club There is a Premier League Rule: 7.2 during the period of the Temporary Transfer of his contract registration a Player shall not play against the Transferor Club;
  4. Re: 'Int' and 'LnL' Badges Ok so by removing them when a player is sold, so that they then have a "clean sheet", the laziness problem would be overcome because any previously interested managers would have to renew it?
  5. Re: Managers don't respond to bids You cannot speak for what other managers may or may not do, and there is no consensus of agreement on this thread as to whether changes would be beneficial or not. You threaten to make all your players unavailable (if something new was introduced along the lines of what has been suggested here) as though this would be a bad thing; if managers who weren't interested in any offers for any or all of their players did this anyway then that would remove a large part of the problem. It would then just be a case of those who hadn't taken this action (and by not doing so tacitly leaving their players open to bids) responding to offers received. Maybe you would be reduced to making transfers by PM because of your intransigence but others wouldn't. This in no way impinges on a manager's right to manage their own team, they could ignore the bids if they wanted to, but if they did there would be consequences that they would be aware of. This is not without some kind of precedent; if a player gets concerns that aren't addressed, eventually their manager is forced to sell him. A manager is not omnipotent.
  6. Re: 'Int' and 'LnL' Badges Could the INT be removed when a player has been sold? I have players I bought when others were interested that still display that interest.
  7. Re: Changing transfer offers Thank you, I wasn't thinking about it from the point of view of cheating, only from convenience. But now that you have it explained it I understand.
  8. If this has already been asked before I apologize but when I tried to search the forum all I got was a blank page. If I have already made a bid for a player, if I want to change it I don't seem to be able to. All I can do is withdraw my offer and make a new one. This seems a bit odd to me because if I am selling a player I can go in at any time and change the asking price. How about having the option to amend bids?
  9. Re: Managers don't respond to bids In this thread, "stupid" appears to mean to some people anything they don't like or disagree with. If anyone thinks that the topic I raised for discussion is pointless, the obvious answer is not to participate, it isn't compulsory, they can spend their valuable time doing something else. I agree with @craig that an opening bid can be a starting point in a negotiation. Anyone who has bought or sold a house or a car will be familiar with how the concept works. I don't understand the arguments against making players unavailable, because I don't see any good reasons given for not doing it. Only being able to bid for players on the transfer list would be a shift away from reality.
  10. Re: Managers don't respond to bids We are dealing with it, but this is a suggestions & improvements forum?
  11. Re: Managers don't respond to bids I don't understand why there should be resistance to "forced transfers". In real life if a bid is made for a player the chairman can accept it if he feels it is in the club's best interests even if the manager disagrees. In this game, a manager can make a player unavailable. It doesn't take long to do this for an entire average size first team squad. Why should there be a need for extra ways to make it even easier for a manager? If they can't be bothered to do that or to respond to offers, I think it should be left to the chairman.
