Re: Need managers new gw

I Would Very much like it if you allow us to stay with our 74+ players when thay evolve. Is it possible?
I don't like it Filipe' date=' but I will discuss it with our small group. It's a democracy. If majority want..I will change. Good enough?[/quote']

It's a bit debatable. The whole concept is based on 74 or less rated players and see how you manage with them as in a team, tactics and if you can scout backups when the better players should grow.

On the other hand maybe if we want more managers coming in it would be helpful if we could decide to keep a few players with a higher rating then 74 but not a whole team. For example one goalie, one defender, one midfielder and one attacker. Buying 75 or higher players should never be allowed though because that would ruin the basic concept.;)

Re: Need managers new gw

I like the concept, it should all be about tactics so I don't fancy keeping the risers. Better everyone have equal chances, right?

On the other hand I think having 3 divisions x 10 teams its a bit too much and I'm sure there will be lots of managerless teams...personally I would go for 2 divs x 10 teams. Its really hard to keep 30 managers together and prevent them from leaving and its enough to have 3-4 managerless teams playing with over 74 rated players and the people will start leaving.

Just my 2c...

Re: Need managers new gw

I understand that some have other options and ideas they would like considered in this setup. I have seen them and did think about them.

However, I came up with this idea that I have because it is exciting and competitive. I may have began things to soon. The idea of this set up is based on a concept very close to that of American football. I will use that concept as the example I am going to give:

If You were the coach (manager) of the University of Texas football team.., you would be looking very routinely at the 15 to 18 year old players at the high school level around the nation to recruit to the University of Texas football team. You would be scouting and recruiting based on the best information and stats you could find on the young prospects in hopes of getting them-- and them bringing something in the way of talent to the University of Texas.

The University of Texas expects you as the coach (manager) to rise to the top of the division and stay there, at least in the top 5 consistently and win a few National Championships.

It’s not an easy job, your players have a 4-year run in college sports. You have to continually at least every 2 seasons be eyeing the next guy to take an empty slot. Many players will run their full 4-years and then graduate. They are gone and the replacements better be ready to step up. If you are fortunate and have recruited a great young player..he is going to help build a championship run at least for two seasons, because his junior year he is gone. The pro clubs will have come and plucked him away at big millions per year. He will finish his degree later in life. This would be somewhat like the case of you recruiting an 18 year old 70 rated hot shot and at the end of season 2 he goes from 70 to 75 rated. He might have got you to one or two championships, but now he is gone to the pros. Plucked early.

If you’re a good manager, you can continue season to season to keep your club competitive by your recruiting. There may be a point in season 5 for example that your recruiting went south and you have a flop of a team..you could change up to a new formation and strategy away from your normal routine and see if things change. More than likely your club will fall in the rankings and you will have to bring them back up. The best managers will consistently keep their clubs at a high level in the rankings. It will not be a matter of them having the best players in the world like the normal setups in SM. It will be great scouting and recruiting, formations and strategy. That is “Soccer Managing”.

One other aspect is, it does not have to be 15 to 21 year old 74 and unders. It could be 28 to 34 year old 74 and unders. These old geezers are great. They have been around a while and played in many local leagues and maybe briefly in their earlier days had a shot with a mid level club, but only one season or two and they were dropped. These days their not playin for the mansion, Ferrari and girls. These guys are playin to pay the rent and feed the wife and kids…

This is what I want this setup to be. Give me some feedback..

I totally understand what you are trying to say but a manager's scouting skills are only tested when he buys a riser fighting off competition from other members and when he rises, it should benefit the manager otherwise their wont be any motivation in the GW. you could easily buy 35 rated old 74 rated players and just go on to win the league easy.

I totally understand what you are trying to say. But what you are saying is not the "only way" to test a managers scouting skills. Buying risers and fighting off competition is definitely a skill and there is definitely a payoff if that player does rise, hence as you say the motivation. That sounds great at Manchester United or Arsenal, as that is the way of things.

However, at Tivoli Gardens or Young Lions FC that is not the way it works. They don't have 165m in the coffers, and they never will. I don't want to bring the big game to the small game. These clubs do I assume recruit and scout, complete transfers and contracts at a much smaller level. But mostly I believe You walk on, you make the team, you get paid a small amount per match..you leave anytime you wish. You get a 70 rated player at $10k and sell him at 74 rated on the SM market for $120k you pulled a $110k profit. That's a great deal at this level and a motivation, plus the motivation of winning hardware. Sounds good to me. Most importantly there wont be after 5- seasons 3clubs with 57M balance and the rest with 3M balance. It could easily become that, and then the set up is dead. Also, I do not agree that eleven older players 73 rated would beat eleven younger players 73 rated. I believe it would be 50/50 on the outcome.

Raahizar it sounds like you need to stay with the big leagues. That's more your style. I fully understand what your saying, but the idea of letting a player get past 74 destroys my entire mental concept of this setup and my brain cant handle it. Thank you very much for your imput though.

Re: Need managers new gw

hi mate,

im glad to see that my proposition raised a discussion.

I also think that maybe 30 is too much, in the way that it will be dificult to have 30 managers interested in this kind of setup (everyone loves the big stars =P).

Anyway, after reading your reasoning for this setup i understood it better, and i see your point. But maybe we could meet halfway. There is, instead of being forbiden to play a player when it gets to 75+, or being permited to keep forever all or some players after they evolve, i propose that when one player gets 75+ we are obligated to sell it but only one season after (or, if it comes first, when he evolves again). That way, we would get the satisfaction and profit of a good scouting (even if only for a while), and we dont ruin the all point of this setup. In your american example, we could see it as a contract clausule that only enables the release of the player after 1 last season.

what do you think?
