You are not short of cash in terms of

TED Morale Issue

It's back! We started our rivals match against TAY last night with a Morale of 0.982. We won and
our morale dropped to 0.861!

Adam, if you get a spare minute please could you have a look at this before the phenomenon
disappears again!

Cup Final Shenanigans?

Just accidentally clicked on the Evolution Cup and discovered that this season's final will be
between Gotham and Orgullo!

Ballingry are okay as they are still listed as contending the Origin Cup Final but their opponents
are now Orpington.

Something has obviously gone wrong here.....obviously?

Round Of Shocks

Ah Steve, the danger of the partial quote is in evidence here as you omitted the vital, "the T11
table suggests that" so I lay any SPP jinx blame firmly on the shoulders of the T11 Table!

Six of the top eight (T11 Table) survived last night. Either AK or OLD had to go as they played
each other. AK missed out with Lady Luck escorting SPP to the exit door. Their places in the
remaining top 8 are now taken by SSK and FCG, one of which, coincidentally, COR now play in the
last 16! Have I, sorry the T11 Table, now jinxed SSK?

for putting the jinx on SPP with "the first semi-final place will be

World Cup

If/when the Manager sees a World Cup tourney, the country of Not Recognised may walk away with the trophy. Take a look when
you have a moment, you'll see the top flight talent that would be difficult for any other national squad to beat:

Manager Cup

The difference in T11 between the top 2 (TED and USL) and the 4th placed team (INB) is 2.8 and
2.4 SL per player, if the final doesn't consist of those 2 then it will be because of extreme
luck/skill or likely a combo of both. The only team who look truly capable of a shock are Sparta
(around 1SL per player less).

I know we certainly won't be prioritising the cup.

Round of 32 (Soon To Be 16)

Stewart,
I really like your prediction about our club. I must note, however, that should we be able to advance after today (not an
easy feat), we would still have to play the winner of Ballingry v Tricolors. Not sure our club is built for a long
Manager Cup run. Not enough super stars -- just regular stars.

You're correct, Jon. Red indicates heaviest bidding on that lot(s) while Orange indicates medium
bidding and green indicates fewest number of bids. It is updated when a new club adds some bids.

The Round Of 32 - The Round Of Shocks!

The Manager Cup round of 32 is upon us. Looking at the current T11 table only 6 of the top 8 clubs
have made it through, so who are favourites to reach the semi-finals?

In the top half of the draw, the T11 table suggests that the first semi-final place is likely to
be contested between AFC and TED, with probable opponents being SPT.

In the bottom half of the draw the T11 table suggests that the first semi-final place will be
contested between the winner of the AK v OLD tie and SPP while their likely opponents look like
being either USL or INB.

However, when does the Manager Cup ever unravel in accordance with the stats? There are a lot of
good teams outside of the T11 top 10 waiting to 'spoil the party'. Lady Luck will play her part so
how many of the top clubs will progress tonight?

ALL-TIME BEST 11

Adam,

How is the ALL-TIME BEST 11 calculated? I assume the list changes because player ratings fluctuate based on
performance? It seems a fun little side stat, so just curious how it is defined. Maybe find a way to incorporate that
team back into the league to battle the Gers or Lisbians?!

Robin Hood

You would have to consider if there was enough time to age the youngster and also rewrite the code to automatically play them. At the moment the assistant plays higher SL players so you would end up with a selection of 1/8 players in your new team, plus what position(s) would the assistant select?
If you consider that a vast majority of managers aim to have 2000k by season end to get the cheap 50CP bundle @ 40k/CP then inheriting a team with double that amount of money will probably do you just fine.

Would it be better if, instead of just
taking cash from the team, they were
automatically made to buy a 0/8 for
250k? At least that way you have
something to show for it, if for example
you miss a few weeks due to illness. Or
if the manager has dropped out silently,
it gives his successor something to play
with.

Robin Hood

Colin, the rule was altered last season so that no team now benefits from the cash debited by the
rule. It just disappears from the game.

Regarding unopened messages, I've had the same problem. That is one reason why I expressed my
surprise when Adam stated that there were 59 managed teams at the start of the season. I too
suspect that there is more than one club currently being managed by their club's assistant.

Does anyone gain from the theft of 119k from CAT?
I’m not sure CAT are the only team being taken care of by the assistant and it makes me cautious about inboxing managers if
I think I could be waiting until someone new takes over before I get a reply. I have a couple of unopened messages and one
of them is from two seasons ago.
