    Palace, I had to send Marrow back to you. Got a wage crunch going, and he's superfluous.

    Right, finally back home. Now to see how my players failed to beat Norwich the day after I destroyed a full strenght Manchester United.

    10,000 empty seats at my first home game. Bloody inbred Ipswich cnuts. It'll be their fault when I go into administration.

    Looks like I'm earning a healthy 350k each week, which means that my balance is pretty damn healthy. Got dominated by Norwich though, so my tweaks in tactics were obviously a miss this game.

    Enjoyable so far. Still havent been beaten by a team in the relegation zone though, which is more then you can say about your team!

    Very happy with that to be fair. TR has a good team that is very similar to mine, I would have taken a draw before hand if offered. Pedro and Vertonghen are quiet low fitness wise, might need a rest Sunday but I hope not. Sahko also out injured for a few games.

    Haven't got anybody to sell, I'm afraid. Curious as to what will happen when I'm in serious debt come mid season.

    No you're right, but you did lose to 3 teams from the division below you.

    Losing to a team that's supposed to be worse then me is obviously ok as long as I didnt field my strongest team.

    Oh, and all of those 3 teams got a way bigger budget to play with :smirk:

    Why does anyone care about wages? You can't go into administration and lose points? Or can you?

    :lol: You noticed how I turned that back on you?

    Hows life in the club formerly known as Manchester United, by the way? People know who you are yet?

    The only thing you turned back on was where you started in the league.

    Yeah life is good, top of the league. As you do.

    Ffs. All the fixtures (mine at least) alternate home and away each time withoute a single double home in sight which essentially means for me that this is the last time I'll be able to make transfers this season.

    Please tell me ground maintenance is only paid on home games, can't see why it wouldn't be....plus I only pick up sponsorship on home games?

    And am I right in thinking I will pick up TV money every week?

    Think I should be ok-ish.

    How can my goalkeeper get a rating of 9 when my opponent has two shots on target and scores 2 goals?

    As far as I can see, you don't pay wages in cup matches. In the help section it says wages are paid out each turn (which is after each league match). Cup matches say "Round" so I believe you can earn money from those matches and possibly have to pay ground maintenance if you're at home, but don't pay wages which may help some clubs financially.

    I got 1,328,536 from my home game, 456,152 from my away game, I pay 810,375 on players wages per week.

    Which means over a two week period I make 163,938. Premier League! Premier League!

    My next match is away which means I will probably be in negative money though :(
