    My point is it would be unfair if we established that as the criterion with all said and done.

    The options people are looking for still give both a chance, the one I'm suggesting for future already has a winner, not fair to apply it now.

    FWIW, I think you should both be eliminated for the complete inability to find ONE poster who could come in here and vote for you in that hour window yesterday. Very poor showing.:p

    You have a very valid point and had you dug your heels yesterday you would have been entitled to. As it stands, you were a good sport and this has turned into a complete mess.

    Zen's mess somewhat, but he will sort it out with this FM2005 thingie. That will be legendary :lol:

    Given around a third of ties in the quarters or later of international tournaments end in a shootout, and with the teams locked together, I think there's mileage in the penalty idea. Tricky to judge but it's realistic.

    As I've got nothing on today...well until tonight....I can legit do that penalty thing for shits and giggles....on FM12 though with a CM0102 database, so pick your takers based on them being 10 years younger(advantage for some obviously, not so much for others I guess.)

    I'll even stream it once I get it to penalties.

    this could be great!
    and I think Snow was right, in that only players on the pitch at end of the match should be available

    But if there was no rule before that there would be penalty shoot out how is the manager supposed to know?

    Its the same for both managers - neither of you knew so I dont see that as an issue

    Anyway it was something that Snow mentioned and I agree with it - it is not just for your match either, we all need to agree and set these things now for the other match ups

    We should just simulate a full match up in Football Manager? Or is it just the penalties we're doing?

    Shouldn't be too hard. But all 10 players in same team. Control the reserves. Put one set of players in the reserve squad. Arrange a friendly that's 90min + pen. Both teams super defensive. No commentary.

    We want screenshots! Average ratings would be particularly interesting (unless you made them play shit throughout.

    So Zen is running the game again?

    You have the penalty kickers right?

    Nothing can go wrong now.

    Hopefully :boring:

    I think the game is still going. It just reached a point where Zen was asked to name the penalty takers for both teams..

    This is pretty interesting. I might have to do an experiment by simming the whole tournament one day to see how accurate our voting process is

    This is shite, I missed it too.

    Quite deflated and gutted for Dan.

    Reckon he's earnt the right to demand a retake, if Zen will be so kind and Cold Boy willing.
