A telling interview with manager Parnaby reveals his dislike for the Manager Cup.
" I really don't like this event at all and although it gives us a chance to devlop young stars, it does very little to help the squad confidence. Recent losses to Ballingry Utd and The Dutch Masters have hurt the team badly and we need to find our feet in the league very soon. We have one more dead rubber match to play and then its back to action where it matters most!"

Improving the rewards in later rounds of the cup makes the richer (better) clubs richer and the poorer (worse) clubs poorer. I wouldn't see that as improving the game.
|Brian Beerman - November 5th 2018 14:47|
Adam, Dave...I can see your point. I always work to get as many cup games as possible each season for those reasons. Sounds like a fair answer.
What do you think about giving the D1 champion a financial or CP award, like days of old?
|Adam Meney - November 5th 2018 8:49|
Personally I feel like there is enough reward fromn the extra games and the extra coaching slots. It all mounts up. Just ask TED.
|Brian Beerman - November 5th 2018 1:56|
|Thank for the thoughts, David. A quick phone reply. Perhaps it’s worth reconsidering a reward for the D1 champion. Cash or CP seem appropriate. It’s a big accomplishment, like the cups, and I think deserves something in addition to a trophy.|
|David King - November 4th 2018 18:22|
For the reality of the game, yes it does make sense. But there is already an increased reward by having that extra coaching slot worth 25k for every extra cup game you play plus the match income.

|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.|
