Congratulations to City on winning the title! And to Birmingham for staying up! This was an amazing season. Finishing 6th after finishing 17th last season is a great achievement for myself. Thanks to everyone who helped me out, with the tactics, the transfers and just about everything about Soccer Manager. Special thanks to Varun, Conor and Cristy for selling Cavani ,Carrick and Ribery respectively to me for cheap, they were an integral part of my team. For the new season, I Just hope that this gameworld doesn't lose anymore mangers and everyone enjoys themselves. I wish you all A very happy New Year. :)
Congratulations and you're welcome! I totally forgot about the buy option ffs, is it fine if I have a look now?

Impressive. Next season will probably be the last realistic chance at getting the points record - though with Charlton etc going down to Division 3 it'll be tough.

Draft for West Ham will start tomorrow if no one takes over the team by then

Will try out what MG proposed before:
OK, well I'll wait until the West Ham draft. But for that draft it should be FV, 1.5XFV, 2XFV etc. You could factor the price with a .25 or .5 increase on FV relative to each 100m of a squad's value. So someone with 150m of squad value pays FV, 200m 1.5FV, 300m+ 2xFV. Obviously a very rough outline but that's how I'd do it to benefit the smaller teams.

This review is taking too damn long. One team reviewed a day unless Leko rising means the whole of West Brom has been done.

Had a dream that Shaw went down in rating.

Re: the draft, am i up first?

The only player i can afford is Andre Gay. Sorry, Gray.

Made the offer now because i'll probably forget and miss my 24 hour slot, but you can delay it until tomorrow or whenever this is supposed to get going.

It's all downhill from here on, not catching Darlington, players starting to turn 22 soon as well with no immediate replacements for them.

Because I couldn't for some reason. Just said the manager was Slaven Bic with a handy picture of a Biro.

Would probably prefer to build something slowly anyway.
That is just a holding manager to stop the team being shredded, I only mentioned then because of their stadium size.
Welcome anyway.
