  1. george & stegore, you offer valid points and i agree. shame though, that both your points are to stop cheats in the game. (sounds like there's too many shady managers to be totally clean) however, you can cut this by what u said. its just frustrating when a deal collapses. POINT TAKEN GUYS AND I DO AGREE, THANKS FOR REPLIES CRAIG
  2. regarding collapsed deals by SM. (frustrating) please remember, a player is only worth what another club is willing to pay. so, if a 35yr old is wanted for say £6m, it should be allowed, cos if they are happy to pay, it helps the seller financially also. As in real-life, players go for crazy money, but they get what they want, money talks as they say. i had a collapsed deal, and it was only £3.5m (after agreed i got an offer for £10m) i kept the lower price agreement, only to see it collapse. if managers are happy to pay, the deals should be agreed. any thoughts on this craig
  3. ITS NOT STARTING UNTIL 05.30 (GMT) SETUP BEING PROCESSED AT PRESENT WITH THE 05.30 (GMT) TIME START. APPROX: CRAIG

  11. yes, set up with same standard teams would work better. it would be good to have a choice between free or pay. YES, It is gambling. NO UNDER 16's allowed to receive cash prizes. (would need to make sure winners are over 16 yrs old). taking cash payment to join and paying out cash prizes is gambling. however, under the gaming laws, its a pools promoter license thats required to run such a thing. (pools promoter, covers fantasy soccer type games) would certainly add more spice to selecting our formations etc.
  12. i prefer SM as it is. having NO CASH prizes is more fun. i have teams who i simply wouldn't select if it was cash orientated. (cos i would win nothing). i have for example: Hamilton Academicals, Darlington etc. i have 3 bigger clubs, but I like a challenge with the so called smaller clubs. NO ONE WOULD SELECT THE LOWER LEAGUE CLUBS IF CASH WAS INVOLVED. I don't mind changes to improve the game, but DON'T take the fun out of it.
  13. a lot of red tape here. to charge people a fee and give out prize money, you'd have to be a registered pools promoter (this covers fantasy football games). cant see members doing it (unless they register). however, maybe SM could add this themselves.
  14. drop down menu i agree, this would be good for the game. its down to, can SM implement it into the game.
  15. free transfers i'm the one who started this debate. i'm enjoying all the replies and discussions. Regarding Perry 81, with respect, its not the lazy way to make a quick buck (20 turns is not quick). re: "good managers don't need to bring in players for nothing". Good manager is nothing to do with it. The BEST manager in the world can only work with wot he's got. If no finance available, he's got to find players on the cheap & hope they do a job. re: "unwanted 76 77 rated players, wait 20 turns and sell for loads of cash". If 76 77 rated players play rubbish for 20 turns, then the loads of money won't be offered. (not guaranteed) Anyway, i'm enjoying the debate. interesting points by all. This is the best soccer site by far. PS. I'm a Millwall shareholder in real-life. Gutted today with Forest result.
  16. re free transfers i didn't mean clubs get players for free with no intention to play them. Clubs get players free, play them and in long term, they can sell on for a profit. (if player plays well, of course). if player has 6 goals, 4 assists, 4 mom awards etc, then you'd get a good price for him. However, if he hasn't done well, then you'd release him on a free. (no point getting 10 free players if they play poorly, cos you'd get nothing for them and you'd lose out paying all their wages). Also, small clubs could get experienced players for free, like 33yr olds. This could help them for say, half a season or so. The player would then retire from playing. (when his contract runs out). Regarding FREE players, you could limit this to say, 3 per club and cant be sold on for "x" amount of weeks.
  17. could we have free transfers (all you pay is the players wages) at present you pay 75% of free agents, with is a lot for small clubs. free transfers with only wages to pay would help lesser clubs strengthen their squad without dishing out too much needed cash. These players could be free, and sold on to make funds available. not to buy more players, simply to stay afloat. i'm top of table but will be bankrupt in 8 weeks time. LOL
  18. enjoying the game and i'm upgrading to GOLD, allowing me more clubs etc. Currently, i've 3 clubs and i'm trying to sell players to raise cash to buy. However, NO ONE has enquired about my players, who are reduced in price to get rid of. (rating 85 etc). Could unmanaged clubs not make an offer to help managed clubs get finance. (meaning SM bids for the unmanaged club). My finances will dwindle away, i cant let players go free. Premier clubs are ok cos they have zillions, can you not do something to help smaller clubs raise cash.
  19. i would like to manage GENOA, but cant find them in any league, why ??? C'MON add Genoa FC to the game.
