    The Soccer Manager Red Cafe League

    If you want to join send me (Damien) a PM with your team and username

    To join just pick a team in this topic and then search in Free online football manager game - Soccer Manager for world id 101474 and apply to that team.

    The rules are very simple:

    1) there are 5 divisions with 20 teams. Bottom 3 are relegated and top 2 are promoted. There's a playoff to decide the 3rd team that's promoted. Top 4 of Division 1 qualify to the Champions League. Teams from 5-10th qualify for the Europa League.

    2) There are 8 competitions in the Red cafe League:

    National League
    National Cup
    League Cup
    National Shield
    European Champions Cup
    European Shield (Europa League)
    European Super Cup
    World Cup

    3) There are no transfer windows, teams will start with real squads and money and all changes are definitive. This means that if you pick a team that previously was owned by another player, you will have the team he built and the money he left.

    4) People who don't login for 21 days will lose the team, which can be picked by another player, even if he's already in the game.

    Soccer Manager seems to be ok, I managed to get Arsenal in a new world and so far bought Mascherano and Pepe to improve the defense.

    The guy who controls United managed to get Ronaldo for 20M + Berbatov and Valencia. Should be interesting.

    Anyway, the league id is 100929 if anyone wants to join, although the best clubs were already picked. If there's enough people interested we could set up a Red Cafe League.

    I'd be interested in a Soccer Manager Redcafe league. Used to play it back in high school, but always get bored of struggling to buy good players because other managers don't accept very fair offers.

    If we created a world with only the english leagues playable, then all non-english teams would be controled by the game and they accept realistic offers.

    Obviously after a while the best players would all be in England and we would have to negotiate amongst us.

    A customizable game costs 7 euros. I wouldn't mind paying for it if we have a decent number of people interested, and then we would chose here the settings.

    random.org to decide the order of picking. The creator of the game has to pick a team when creating the world so I would reserve Arsenal for myself:D

    OK, so 5 people are in. Once we get to 20 I´'ll buy the pack and see what options we have.

    We can create several divisions with teams from several countries, like an European Super League.

    I think we can also start with empty squads but I read there are a few bugs so maybe play with real squads/money would be better.

    Full details in the first post, the id of our league is 101474, just search for it and join the team you picked in this topic.

    Some teams in the European Competitions still available, although you can only manage in Europe if you're a gold member, which costs 1 euro per month. being a gold member also allows you to manage a national team.

    Being a free member has absolutely no influence in the National League, so we're all equal there.
