Right, conversation made with all managers of the league invited except for those banned (Trionz + LitterBug) and the Cardiff manager as can't remember his ID. Those three feel free to message me on SM/here with your choice out of Herrera and 2 Man Midfield for the Sunderland job. Deadline is Monday 2pm for votes due to Sunderland playing Chelsea in Europe.

@2 Man Midfield Herrera is back at Liverpool so apply back for Leeds and can have the debate there.

So, the situation with Reading, what are we going to do? I'm not going to stand in @cj_sparky's way if he tries to get Lopes back when TB expires. Going to be very difficult in the meantime though with no keeper

Just let him buy him back from Lyon uncontested. He deserved losing one keeper but ye know, don't want him leaving the league because of no keepers. *wink* @langster

He should be allowed to buy Lopes uncontested. How he sorts out the interim is his lookout though.

Btw, people shouldn't confuse this with normal players. Unique situation as it's both his GKs.

Yeah, I think he decided which one he wanted in the end but by that point it was too late to stop the concerns.

Why? The transfer ban is only one week! He can loan a keeper in in the meantime, and I've had to go nearly 3 weeks now with an 80 rated keeper.

Ah forgot they changed the rules. Used to be that keepers sold to external clubs were banned for same length of time as those sold internally.

Doh, thought once I'd sold Marchetti and started playing Lopes it would be okay. Ooops

Ahh, ok, that might still be the case then. Not sure, I thought it was the same for all players that went to external clubs. We will find out tomorrow though.

Yeah unfortunately when it does the reviews it goes back to the start of the season for the % of games out of. How are your other players? Managing their concerns fine or any you think could be in trouble?

Feel free to loan Ederson off me or Scuffet off Forest if you still need a keeper for the time being. They're only 83/84 rated but better than nothing.

Cheers, only Kolorov I think.

Re player concerns: Kanté got one and i think he needs 65% playing time in a season. Don't thinks he's able to reach that with the games left of this season so.. Will his apps in this season count or is it "reset" when next season begins?

Reset when next season starts. Just goes off the "Turns:" on the club page. Once a new season starts the turns reset, which is why sparky was unlucky. Decision was made on which keeper would be first choice but by that point it didn't make a difference as the turns needed was too much.

Hmm, so regardless whether i play him or not he'll get level 2? Would you mind looking at him to see if i'm correct or not?

He's currently on 11.5/26 (44.2%).

If he plays every game until next review: 22.5/36 (62.5%)

Might be slightly off as haven't checked fully but those rough stats would mean he's fine and won't get level 2.

Cheers, Damien. So.. Apps in other competitions aren't included in the calculation? Its total apps to league games?

Okay the calculation for you is like this:

((League starts) + (Cup starts) + (Shield starts) + (Charity shield starts) + (0.5*(League subs + Cup subs + Shield subs + CS subs))) / (Number of Turns)

So right now for Kante it is:

(2 + 1 + 5 + 1 + (0.5*(4 + 1 + 0 + 0)) / 27
(9 + 2.5) / 27
11.5 / 27

And number of turns is always equal to the number of league games.

Again, thanks. I meant are rather than aren't in that first q.

I'll try and beat the record then I'll leave, I can see I'm not wanted so that's fine.
What? Don't be silly :(

In other news: beat Forest 2:1 thanks to a late winner from Martial.

The Club's Chairman will not employ you as your reputation in this Game World is poor due to you managing many Clubs for short periods of time
Good old Herrera.
