Re: 7777 NextGen Cup Thread

Lovelay I made it

:D

Just to check if my potential line up is "legal"

GK: 17

DF: 18' date=' 21, 23

MF: 16, 17, 20, 21, 21

ST: 19, 21

Guna buy 3 more under 21 players (DF's) :)[/color']

Did u not read those rules? :o 20 and under..half that team is overage

Also to clarify what happens if a guy turns 21 during the group stage, should we submit squads? Maybe anyone who is 20 and under when squads are submitted are eligible for the duration of this next gen series. Due to no injuries and suspensions for friendlies everyone can name there starting 11 and bench b4 the tournament starts

Re: 7777 NextGen Cup Thread

Whats the point in entering an u20 tournament if half your team is going to be overage?' date=' kind of spolis the concept..[/quote']

Agree with this, if there rules are u20 then for me if you cant field a team of u20 wots the point in playing?

York City NextGen Team.

Re: 7777 NextGen Cup Thread

ok, just to clarify, if you cant put an 11 of U20s out, as i said you fielded your worst squad members in the vacant positions.

also if you win with a 'patched up' side, your docked a point as a penalty.

seems fair to me in the 1st edition.

benches can be overage, you just cant use your subs...

also, submitting squads, nice idea. when the new fixtures come out we will know how long the season lasts, so any players whose birthdays falls in the season and will turn 21 CANNOT take part - much like the real tourney, there is a Jan 1993 cut off.

Arsenal

U20's Tourny Team

...........................GK

......................Thomson

.......................19 - 70

....RB............CB.............CB...........LB

Flanagan....Maguire........?????.......?????

.19 - 82.....19 - 76.......?? - ??.....?? - ??

....RM...........CM............CM..........LM

.Miyaichi.....Shelvey.....Thomas.....Lopez

.20 - 83......20 - 84.....19 - 78.....19 - 78

..................FWD..........FWD

................Neymar.........Thy

................20 - 91.......19 - 78

I have left the LB and CB positions blank because I will invest in players here in time for kick off rather than put in next lowest rated (i have a 61 GK that would have to slot in there!)

Re: 7777 NextGen Cup Thread

Ok so the seasons fixtures are out.

Here is the bad/good news.

Any 20 year old player whos birthday falls between now and 19th June (last league game of season) is NOT ELIGIBLE to play.

this is to mirror the real life birthday registration rules.

So check your 20 year olds your thinking of playing folks.

Therefore i cannot play:

MUSTAFI, Shkodran D(RC) 20 78 (17 April )

DABO, Bryan D,DM© 20 75 (18 February)

AZEMI, Ilir F© 20 78 (21 February)

Re: 7777 NextGen Cup Thread

Awesome.

This birthday qualification thingy has thoroughly picked up my side by the collars, bent them over the table and. as the french might (not) say "F'artd" in their face.

Thomson

Flanagan

Maguire

Pauschek

Appiah - OUT

Miyaichi

Shelvey - OUT

Thomas

Lopez

Neymar - OUT

Thy – OUT

What a purchase Appiah was. Basically I’ve spent almost £4m him specifically for a competition he now can’t play in. The worst part is that I was gonna bid on KURZAWA who is arguably the better talent but I missed out on him cos Leicester sneaked in whilst the Appiah deal was completing – lovely!

Looks like my lads are gonna take a beating in the ratings stakes now – Neymars 91 replaced by Saibou’s 70 as the main example. The team go from 80 to 75 and I have to spend more cash to find a forward to partner Saibou.

Awesome.
