My name is Simon and I've taken the reigns at Dynamo City. I'd like to thank Roy for inviting me to join The Manager, Adam for accepting me into the fold and David and Stewart for the messages they sent welcoming me and offering support. Roy and I go way back, we went to the same school and I introduced him to online football management about 12 years ago. I stopped playing after a couple of years, but I see he has not and he's been offering me some pearls of wisdom about The Manager.
I am looking forward to bringing a new direction to this club, a new name, new playing style, player names, strips, trips to the beach. OK maybe not the last one. I'm looking to bring back my Xpert11 team like a phoenix from the flames, or in this case a harrier - The Kendyminster Harriers.
To begin with player names may continue the theme set by a former manager. My daughters like the sound of Sparkle Pony making some friends. But then I think the league needs a bit more Funk & Soul - James Brown, George Carlin etc
But to begin with I need to improve the team I have and to do that I need players. I have the cash and the resources to trade for them and I know there are teams out there that will need them to make their own teams stronger, to build on what they've created. I can help there, I have cash and resouces to spare. I have a lot of trade offers out there - a total of 2000k and 20CP! So check your inboxes, look at what I'm offering, I think I've been fairly generous.
To sum up, I'm happy to be here, I'm looking forward to getting started and thank you for your warm welcome

|Should your players special abilities be hidden from your opposition and only known by you? Knowing this information can help you plan your lineup against a team. Would trading be affected? The Manager has always been a game of open information. Does a change like this alter that philosophy?|

Paul's original suggestions actually sound great. Would add a bit of personality to the algorithms.

I am a little dissapointed with myself for not getting some new abilities in for you this preseason. I have not had to the time to test them properly and I am still working on them.
I am hoping to get some of these in for next season.
|Since June 2001|
|The Manager started with in 2001 with just 8 teams. Every couple of season it grew slowly into the game it today. In 2015 the league saw it's first complete league expansion. At this time The Manager was renamed to Origin.|
|Since June 2015|
|The Evolution League joined the manager is 2015. It came together with mostly Olmec Coaches with a sprinkling of coaches returning to the game after a break. The Evolution League may prove to be one of the toughest competitions out there.|
