    Hi guys - glad to be in here at New York Red Bulls

    Looks like the last manager only completed one deal - INIGO MARTINEZ in for cash...I see in the rules all these things that haven't been done -

    With the departure of Marquez, the Board want you to sign a Designated Player that is a center back.

    Due to Thierry Henry’s affiliations with Arsenal, You can buy One Arsenal Player for ¾ their price ( Can be a designated player or normal player) and can reserve one Arsenal youngster.

    Transfer Budget/Funds: 9 Million + sales

    Wage/Salary Cap: 390,000K

    Should I do the above?

    Interesting to note that most of my 9 million budget was spent on one player....the cost of the Designated Player come from this budget yes?

    I still have 5 roster moves, yes?

    Oh, and can I buy 4 under 21's?

    Thanks :o

    Feyenoord/Vittese+Utrecht really shouldnt be in a qualifier as originally i thought the main thing was england - holland with a few added in.

    Now 3 of the dutch teams must face a qualifier? :confused:

    Yeah, maybe looks like sour grapes from us - it's not, I don't mind qualifying, but this has now moved a long way from what it started out as (the HONGLAND CUP, remember?). It now looks more like a cup for premiership teams...the point of that would be?

    Also, check back, some of the people who first showed an interest in this idea are the ones who might now not be in it....

    Anyway, I still want to compete and am happy to have a go at beating FEYENOORD if that's what I have to do

    Ok' date=' so after having a little bit of a think, I have decided to slightly change the the format. So, with 20 teams, there shall be a total 4 pots. The top 3 pots, will be made up of the 12 teams with the highest average rating from their top 18 players (this can be seen from the overview of the gameworld in the Add Club page). To help determine teams with equal ratings squad value will be used. Now there is 1 pot left to be filled, which will be fought out for in mini-qualifying rounds between the 8 lowest rated sides. This will involve a 2 leg knockout round, with away goals counting. The 4 victorious sides will earn a place in the final pot. It's almost like qualifying for a Euro 2013 or something. Now, I know this makes it a lot harder for the low rated teams like Yeovil and Portsmouth, so I have prepared a handicap for their opponents in the qualifying round. I have organised the qualifying rounds in a way that enables all the weaker sides to progress, but they most overcome their opponents without their highest rated player, IF there is a difference between the teams in ratings of 5 or more. If the highest rating is shared among more than one player, than all of those players are ineligible to play. This way there will still be one team better than the other, but it gives the weaker team a fairer chance of progressing to the next stage. If none of this is making sense hang on a moment as there will be a diagram of the layout below which should help explain. Now, once we have the 4 pots, the groups shall be drawn to determine 4 groups of 4 teams. It's pretty self explanatory from then onwards. The top 2 teams from each group progress. Quarter finals and semi finals WITH 2 legs, and a final prize of 6000 credits. (Cheers Garry got the 1000). So here is the overview of it all.

    [center']Qualifying Round

    QFR 1 :Portsmouth V Reading - Reading cannot play their highest rated player(s)

    QFR 2 :Yeovil V Suwon Bluewings - Suwon cannot play their highest rated player(s)

    QFR 3 :Utrecht V Derby

    QFR 4 :Vitesse V Feyenoord

    Dates for these games will be released shortly.

    IMPORTANT: If teams fail to abide by the rules and field ineligible players they will automatically forfeit the match 3-0.[/center]

    The remaining teams and their pots will be released when the qualifying round is complete.

    Can you not find a way of just including all 20 sides? 4 pots of 5?

    Vitesse get Feyenoord! So much for a random draw! :rolleyes:
