I think I've done alright to have shed 11 players for loss of less than 500,000 of value so far.

Just gotta keep looking for the risers that havent been snapped up yet.

More than a few players to be sold once TB ends
Nice work!

If you're interested in managing City (teams within league only), you have until 8pm Tuesday to let me know. There will then be a vote as to who the next manager will be if there is more than one person interested. If there is nobody interested then it'll be open to people outside the league. They only have £25M in the bank - the manager didn't do much business in the market once he got his team set up.

Sad to see JB go.
Definitely interested in the City job.

Just think of the transfer updates!

Loan Cap (S15 and onwards)
  1. Applies to unmanaged clubs only
  2. Loan cap = FFP minus 40, first come first serve (e.g. if your FFP aka squad limit is 50, your loan cap = 50 - 40 = 10, which means you can only loan 10 players out to unmanaged clubs)
  3. Only players with rating 75 and/or above are allowed to be loaned out
  4. Duration - until Turn 2 every season. After Turn 2, it is free-for-all

Reminder

Reminder
Every single one of my loan bids collapsed. Still waiting on:
  • Under - Mansfield Town to put loan bid in @RedRazor
  • Shaw - Hereford to put loan bid in @RedSky
  • Elvedi - Kidderminster Harriers to put loan bid in @gaz1185
  • Retsos - could have sworn MK Dons had a loan bid in for him but can't see it anymore
Over 12 hours to register interest in Man City job. Currently interested managers are QPR, MK Dons and Ipswich Town

Yeah, read point #4 in greeny's post.
#4 Duration - until Turn 2 every season. After Turn 2, it is free-for-all

This?

I thought the FFP-40 limit was for the entire season and that there was an actual limit on the number of players that can be loaned out until Turn 2 thereby giving all managers ample opportunity to loan out at least some players.

First couple of league fixtures are Barnsley followed by Reading. Feels like something like that happens every season, I rotate heavily and do shit.

I play @Big-Red followed by @The Stain in the next couple of games so at least any hope of a title challenge will be quashed early.

In the first round of the league and cup which is always good.

Nah, as far as I know it has always been the FFP-40 limit applying until Turn 2. Complaint last season was about Wolves or someone loaning out about 50 players to unmanaged teams because the FFP-40 limit no longer applied. Should have been one of the things discussed prior to season starting but only proposal was about banning loans entirely which was never going to be agreed.

So, with Soyuncu coming in, I am bound to go over the FFP limit, but at the same time, I have accepted 2 bids on my players. Net result after the 3 deals go through, I will be within the FFP limit. But for sometime tomorrow, i.e. until the transfers with AI are concluded, I may be in breach. I hope that is ok. Else, I can ask @The Stain to cancel the Soyuncu bid for the moment and I'll bid on him after the 2 players are sold.

We're stricter these days but selling someone at the same time as you're buying someone has never been an issue so shouldn't be one now.
