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.

What Is The Manager?
The Manager is an Online, Multiplayer Football Management Game. It's a community of leagues and managers, just like you, putting their football management talent to the test against other likeminded individuals.
How Much Does It Cost?
The Manager is FREE to play and needs no software installed on your PC. You can play the game using an internet browser (Chrome and Firefox preferred) to enter lineups, propose transfer offers and enter auction bids to buy players online.
How Are The Games Run?
A custom simulator, inspired by the classic Olmec match simulator (by Allan Sellers), is used to process all the matches in the Manager. It creates an abundance statistics and information to help a manager decide what his teams best formation may be, or best team tactic to use. In The Manager the 'behind the scenes' calculations are upfront for you to study along side the statistics to help you make your next move.
When Do The Games Run?
Matches take place on a Friday and Saturday evening with the occasional Tuesday match to fill the midweek with excitement. The Manager endeavours to operate two full seasons per calendar year with only a short wait between each season.
The Manager Cup
The Manager Cup is an open competition encompassing all leagues in The Manager game system. The winner of the Manager Cup is the true champion of champions. To win this you must beat the best of the best and conquer all.

Everything from bidding in auctions, submitting lineups, match reporting, journalling and blogging is all carried out through the games website interface. This also allows you to manage your team on the move through the use of a smart device or tablet. While there is no mobile application to play the game, the website operates on mobile devices.
How Do I Join?
Coaches who sign up will be added to the waiting list and we will start looking for a team for you. League schedules run concurrently and while openings may appear throughout the season it is more likely to receive resignations from coaches during the offseason. When you sign up interest we ask for a few details, but do ask you to give us a valid e-mail address so we are able to make contact with you about available teams. (We do not share your e-mail address with anyone outside of The Manager).
