  1. I'm already doing that, but it's hard making ends meet as it is with a top class side that's started out small. And now SM are planning to up the wages for the best players – something that will effectively kill off any chance of survival – at least unless the ticket or other income receive an overhaul as well. And this thread is for discussing game development and pros and cons with certain plans. So I'll keep bleating about stadium capacities. The new wage system that have been put forward won't injure clubs like Man U or Real Madrid much, but will be a pain for smaller clubs (with smaller
  2. What you're saying is basically "hoard players and you'll be able to stay afloat".
  3. A small detail I find extremely annoying is the automatic contract extensions that are negotiated by the board. What's the point of this exactly? This is another feature that makes it so much harder to make ends meet with a smaller club.

My only real source of income (since my stadium is pathetic) is selling players. However, since I've got all those big names, it really doesn't matter that I buy a talented 82 rated player who then gets upped to 8
