  1. I have just happily completed season 1 at Alfreton Town and at the end of the season the game (or presumably chairman) decided to add 3 friendlies against Ebbsfleet, Mansfield Town and Manchester City just to close season 1, which although was kind of annoying (& really unrealistic!!) but I accepted. So the new fixtures for season 2 are released to today (monday 23rd April) (the campaign starts this saturday). I was looking forward to a week of agreeing a few loans signings & buying/selling to pep up the squad with no pointless games in the middle..... I look at the fixture list.......and...... to my amazement.... monday 23/04/2012: Huddersfield (a) friendly tuesday 24/04/2012 MK Dons (a) friendly wednesday 25/04/2012 Man City (a) friendly thursday 26/04/2012 Bolton Wanderers (h) friendly friday 27/04/2012 Man City (a) friendly saturday 28/04/2012 Accrington Stanley (a) Division 4 - thank god!!!! So a pointless "friendly" game every day!! Playing Man City 3 times in about 10 days - both stupid & totally unrealistic Can these fixtures be cancelled or am I missing a setting somewhere where managers can choose whether or not to have these games??? Surely Chairman in real life consult to managerial team to a point regarding these games, no one has a game everyday! Before anyone says, yeah I know players don't get fatigued with these games, that isn't my problem it is just that this game is meant to be realistic & that run of games is a total joke (the Man City thing especially - as if they d play Alfreton in pre-season once, let alone twice )
  2. Re: How do I make a Goalscorer? In my division 4 Burton Albion side after 19 rounds: Stelios Giannokopoulos (83) 9 goals in 17 appearances (rates 8.31, forward) Paul Boertien 9 goals in 18 appearances (despite his form he's an lm/lb & goals Boertien rates only 6.67) Been amazed by Boertien's goal contribution - he's a 75, my worst midfielder. we're 2nd at the mo & Stelios will retire end of the season. On a separate issue - anyone know when the SPL ratings are done? And indeed C'ship, League 1 etc????
  3. This is both a question in both SM terms & in real football. You know how if a player gets booked 5 times in the Premiership they get a 1 match ban. My query is: if a player gets 2 bookings in a match (& is subsequently sent off) - do those count towards the 5 yellows????? I ve had a defender sent off on SM but he missed just 1 game, yet it did not indicate he got 2 yellows - bit baffled Any advice/knowledge/assistance welcomed
  4. Re: Looking for a managerial successor....... x3 congratz dude - looks as though you'll be champion nice one - well deserved :):):):)
  5. Re: Looking for a managerial successor....... x3 hiya guys, I am going to be unlikely to get time to look (or comment) at this from this point on but like to thank you all for continuing to work to develop these clubs. As such, there is little point to continue updating this thread & I leave you to carry on the work you have all began so impressively. Best of luck guys with the clubs. Skepz
  6. Re: Looking for a managerial successor....... x3 looking good. colorado having a good season by the sound of things.
  7. Re: Looking for a managerial successor....... x3 Your consistancy is impressive Jack, don't know if you've looked at last seasons games at all but I dropped to many points against the weaker sides & it cost me the league in the end, possibly exiting both cups early has perhaps helped you a tad too. Brilliant run tho mate!
  8. Re: Looking for a managerial successor....... x3 your in a different stratosphere to Toronto man (thus loans ok now) - think its a 3 way race for the title.
  9. Re: Looking for a managerial successor....... x3 good win dude, may be sell off one of the high earners upfront to ease the debt.
  10. Re: Looking for a managerial successor....... x3 I heart this news regarding Toronto - that lousy side (somehow) did the double on me last year and frankly arguably with their pooey (i'd use a cruder term) negative style of play possibly cost me the treble. really chuffed you beat them & frankly with there boring 4-5-1 I hope they come about 10th!!!!!! Great stuff about LA - New England are the main boyz in my opinion - good gaffer although one rumour I heard is he now is focusing on winning a cup rather than the league - I knocked him out of both domestic cups last season so that could be true................................
  11. Re: Looking for a managerial successor....... x3 fair enough my sources accuracy is at best mixed, if Dunne is fit I would expect summat like: Harper - Mancienne, Dunne, Johnson, Jordan - Dunn, King, a cm, Golasa, Merida (or snodgrass) - a lone forward
  12. Re: Looking for a managerial successor....... x3 Jack, American Soccer League "rumour" suggests Toronto will go 4-4-2 against you with Bent/Owen (or Chopra up front). Richard Dunne apparently will miss the game (injury?) thus King will move back to CB & Toronto to revert to 4-4-2. make of that speculation what you will.
  13. Re: Looking for a managerial successor....... x3 4 points from 6 positive start at a higher level.
  14. Re: Looking for a managerial successor....... x3 top result dude remember that Toronto "4-5-1" system, they are a real concern & will be fully fit as they are actively managed. Big game. Funnily enough New England even with that point deficit could be your biggest threat, they had an amazing campaign last term where they lost something like 1 in 20 and they may push you close even if LA seem the more obvious threat. great campaign thus far.
  15. Re: Looking for a managerial successor....... x3 "but 32 points out of a possible 39 has not been good enough so far this season so i'm going to have to aim high for the second half of the season" dude, fair play that an amazing record, I would fully expect if you repeat that in the 2nd half of the season you'll be champions. LA cannot be that consistant again. Great work. :) See Chewis is still kickin **** out of his league too. Adam out of interest are PV now in div 3??? where are they in the league? cheers all
  16. Re: Looking for a managerial successor....... x3 cheers for re-igniting this thread Ad, its a good one cos it shows the history of the club - you may wish to stick the squad you've inherited on there somewhere. http://forum.soccermanager.com/showthread.php?t=52323
  17. Re: Looking for a managerial successor....... x3 I was hoping you might return & express an interest as I felt a tad unfair about what happened previously' date=' I'd invite you to contact Ashh and state you would be my preferred candidate (it remains Ashh's decision).
  18. Re: Looking for a managerial successor....... x3 fair one Chewis who needs risers when ya buy for £7.1m & can sell for at least £26.5m!!!!! :eek: thats a rude league record, Chewis's Bury = 100 points????
  19. Re: Looking for a managerial successor....... x3 Jack, Toronto always play 4,5,1 bear that in mind when you face them - weirdly it seems to work so expect that when you meet them again. LA tend to do well v. Toronto. I have a philosophy that against NMF sides 4,5,1 for some reason absolutely kills them - my theory is it gives you such high possession that the opposition just die - they end up just chasing the ball & 2nd half have nothing left. I noticed in my final season at Bury that with 4,5,1 it was killing sides like 4-0 minimum every game. The only trouble with 4-5-1 is against fully fit teams and when you face other experienced managers who can counter it. Toronto's squad is at best average (compared with RSL, LA, New York, san jose) but that 4,5,1 tactic wins lots of games. Aside from the injury great start for Rooney, point against LA is far from disasterous despite the late equiliser.
  20. Re: Looking for a managerial successor....... x3 unsure if Ashh has someone lined up but I'd advise those interested to express their interest through the thread or may be pm him. At this point I can confirm they'll be no 'dream return' for Skepta to any of his sides and wish to am pleased to see the progress made by the clubs. All managers can plan long-term. Unlikely to manage on SM again until early/mid 2011 at the earliest.
  21. Re: Looking for a managerial successor....... x3 I managed to win one of the cups last year - it would be funny if you retain it!!!
  22. Re: Looking for a managerial successor....... x3 Ashh if you've not got someone in mind for Port Vale maybe look back at the start of this thread and offer it too one of the other forumers who expressed an interest in the 3 clubs.
  23. Re: Looking for a managerial successor....... x3 agree with you the leagues the priority - we did the cup double last season so they are little more than sideshow this term. San Jose are quiet actively managed, i am suprised how poor a start they made. Best of luck v. L.A Galaxy - think I drew twice with them last season from memory, hope you better that.
  24. Re: Looking for a managerial successor....... x3 no worries dude, can you forward the new man this thread? i certainly don't expect constant updates but i'd be interested to read a few lines on the mighty Vale every few months or so.
