Is he on a free?


To sign a player, you must be able to scout them, this doesn't mean you have to, just he must be accessible to your scouts. If you have a foreign player on a free transfer who is willing to come on trial, you do not need to be able to scout them.

The question then is: was he on trial before signed?

I thought that I would get involved with this as well. Decided to bring some success to Wales and take over as Merthyr Tydfil.

pre season started well, busy triallists and staff turnaround at the turnball ground, signings of the season include Zevon Hines ex west ham and my new man Marco "BARBERS" Adaggio (for strings- for those who like their dance music!) looks like he'll start as sub!

Great month remaining unbeaten and picking up 10 points from 12 in the league. Now lie 5th in the table and looking good for the play-offs, early days yet though.

Thought I would organise a wee pre-season tourney to bring some funds in, seeing as I'm going to be waaaaay over budget on wages this season.

Didn't think Man Utd would bring Scholes, Giggs and Park to Cossham Street though...

WE SCORED!!! WOOHHOO!! (http://img502.imageshack.us/my.php?image=manugamexa0.png)

League Table (http://static.pici.se/pictures/ropnSxjjs.png)

I wasn't expecting this after a pre-season with only draws... but I'm not complaining! Bar that terrible game with 3 red cards, the refs have really helped me out with a number of penalties and offside goals. Interestingly, both Hitchin and Tydfil - the two other newly-promoted teams - are also doing really good.

He rejected new offer of a contract from his present club and left them, so i offered him a 1 week trial which he accepted and then the next day offered him a 2 year contract.

Is that ok? Its the 1st time ive done this challenge so not too sure.

By the way im sure i did have the option of getting ascout report on him but i didnt bother, ive also been able to get scout reports for a few other foreigners which i thought was a bit strange as i cant send my scout out of the uk.

Hadji probably has English nationality from his time at Coventry etc, and that's why you could scout him.

My dvd.co.uk copy got shipped this morning by Royal Mail, so who knows when that will get here (still issues with postal strikes over there?).

nope no editing allowed you need to play as one of the teams that is already in the game. and it has to be one of the newly promoted teams into the Blue Square North/South.

You can now set a manager nickname, which should mean people don't have to blank out their names when taking a screenshot.

Pre-Season Round Up

Pre season we're looking pretty good, I re-signed Donaldson, Ferguson and Bath on loan from my parent club Newcastle.

Won 4 and drew 2 of the 6 friendlys I have played, best result was either 5-0 vs. Chelmsford or 1-0 vs. Newcastle reserves http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Im starting to think i may have appointed the wrong player as captain though.He seems to have a slight discipline problem.

captain (http://i226.photobucket.com/albums/dd178/mattyisalegend/captain.jpg)

However i seem to have turned Kings Lynn into the Arsenal of the early 90s. After 7 games we are 2nd in the league after a 1-1 draw, a 1-0 defeat and 5 1-0 wins on the bounce.

You can reload as many times as you like, I encourage it to help people get a team they really want.

I can't see Corby Town being promoted in the first season with a reputation of 650 though.

Since you'll have to reload a lot to try and get Corby, if you see Hastings United could you upload the save? I doubt either will be promoted, so far its mainly teams with a rep of 1000 or above http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

Sneekes has always been a class act, he's just as good in the Masters football I've seen him play on Sky.
He's lacking a bit of pace, but put him with a strong defensive midfielder then he'd run riot.

Finally managed to get a low reputation team to appear, so I've taken over Boreham Wood.

Profile (http://i236.photobucket.com/albums/ff262/paulsgruff_fm/profile.jpg)

Looks like it could be quite tough to survive this year. I only have one player in my first team and his name is Elvis http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif

No staff and 4 no hopers in the youth team, my next update will probably be that I've been sacked maybe 2-3 months in.

Well season one over.

Unfortuantly didnt get promoted in my first season.

After a disapointing pre-season and start to the season Chippenham managed to pull there socks up mid way through to record a ten game un-beaten run and power up to 8th place. unfortuantly the last 2 months of the season saw them return to there starting ways and leaking goals left right and centre, to leave them finnishing the season in a respectable 12th position.

Mustapha Hadji. His 2nd Nationality is French, (not English), so although he doesn't require a work permit, you would probably be unable to scout him because he was not based in England.

In order for you to sign him you need to have got him on trial first, so we will need to see a pic showing this.

Here is an exemple of what it should look like and the pic that you need to show as proof. (http://s54.photobucket.com/albums/g118/Jimbokav1971/Chippenham0809/?action=view&current=Trial.jpg)

Please don't take offence if you are asked to prove anything, it is just the nature of the challenge that we want everyone to be competing on the same level.

Good luck to you all.

jsar. Brilliant update http://community.sigames.com/customicons/icon14.gif, (and it wasn't too shoddy first time around).

Don't worry about not getting promoted. It's a marathon not a sprint.

One thing that might improve your updates is if you provide a pic of the league graph as well as the table.

It lets us see at a glance how your season progressed.

Anyway, congrats on being one of the first to complete a season.

I've thought about this and I took it to mean that it wouldn't be the end of the World if they got relegated, but that they would be expecting you to get them straight back up and so end the 2 years back in the Conference South.

Its really just showing the chairman isn't very ambitious, maybe because the club is so small, rather than saying they want to be in the Blue Square Premier in two years, he's saying he's happy just to survive for the next two in the Blue Square South, and then go from there.

After trying to create my own tactic and it resulting with my players loosing the ball more often than not I tried a clean slate and didn't give any instructions.

I've decided that my "liitle old pc" can't cope with the demands of a large database. There is just no way that I would be able to continue a long term game at this speed.

I've given it a good go though and I must admit that I have been VERY impressed with the full game over the demo.

It is with great regret that I must tell you that I am preparing to unleash "Holiday Man" again on the world, only with a medium database this time.

I know I have read a comment from dafuge where he said thas the smaller the database the easier the challenge, but I guess we shall just wait and see.

I will svae my game on the 18th and if someone would give me instructions as to how I host iit then I would be more than willing to do so. That way we have a different smaller database save on the website for those that need it.

I think I might really (and I mean REALLY) get a battering in my first few league games. I've been trying to get as many players and staff in as possible to cover each position (Francis Benali is my new assistant http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif). However, I just got to the first game of the season and realised I have nothing but greyed out goalkeepers in my squad. So now I'm frantically trying to sign 2 or 3.

I will post an initial update when I get to the end of August.

I was getting this trouble also, I have an old system that seemed to be taking absolultely ages to holiday through, then I turned the detail levels to 'none' on absolutely everything and I totally flew through the rest of the holiday.

Mine only has 2.53ghz and 512mb of ram and seems to be bearable - speedwise. You must be playing on a right dinosaur of a machine, or have lower tollerance than I do http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif .

That was all based on speculation from happywill's game a while ago, as far as I'm concerned there will be advantages and disadvantages of running a smaller database at different points in the game.

Scoham. Well I guess we will see then. I had issues with both the job centre and scouting in general in the demo, but this area seemed fine in the full game, (albeit with a large database). It will be interesting to to see if I have the same problems when I start.

You're completely right though. A lot of it is down to what I call "demo perception". People just don't take it seriously or give it a fair crack of the whip simply because it is a demo and they assume it must be bug-ridden.

Apart from the closing down issues and maybe a little bit of overzelousness from ref's, (only a tad mind), I'm not sure I noticed too many big issues.

I guess it could be one of those things that doesn't work properly in the demo, like how they disabled player generation so the demo can't be cracked and play beyond 5 months without problems. Or it could be related to the db size.

To get a parent club you need to have a bit of luck on your side. As there needs to be another club looking for a feeder club, with the same criteria as your club, while your looking for a parent.

I'm actually getting the same problem as Jimbo now with the speed and will be restarting with a medium database. The holidaying was fine but now I'm in the middle of August and using the continue button alot it has gotten too annoyingly slow to be enjoyable, which is ashame as I had built up quite a sturdy defence considering I only had greyed out keepers.

Ah well, loads more reloading until a sub-1000 reputation team appears again I guess.

Worksop

End of October and already a season of struggle. It appears everytime I take a lead the opposition scores twice, quickly.

My defenders back off and the keeper goes off on his holidays just as some Neanderthal defender takes a pot shot from the half way line.

Am I enjoying it?
YOU BET

I have binned my purpose built tactic and just gone 442 Attacking. I win an odd game, lose plenty but have found a striker who can put the ball in the back of the net. 5 in 13 so far. But he's now injured, so I have to rely on Stephen Torpey who is 54 years old with pace 1. God knows why I bought him. Thinking back I thought he could be a decent back up to the 44 years old Bontcho Guentchev who I brought in as a cheap coach not knowing he was still a player.

Still, for those of you looking for a possible gem, you could do far worse than Oliver Hotchkiss. Scored a couple for me but is a little hot tempered judging by his 5 game ban in a pre season friendly for a headbut on Wes Hoolahan.

Still, after 17 games I rooted to 18th place with no chance of going up. http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

Bedford Town - Blue Square South - August 08

so, here's a quick update after my first month. its been pretty up and down so far, with a couple of good games and a few bad ones. by the time i signed my team, i only had time for a couple of preseason friendlies, so fitness has been quite an issue. as have sendings off and mid term injuries.

overall i'm fairly satisfied so far. i guess we'll find out in the next few months when my players are all match fit and start to develop an understanding.

currently my team has little better than average morale and they have yet to develop a good level of understanding. as my players were all brought in from scratch i'll be monitoring the understanding level and see how it develops...

Just before going to bed for the night, I glance at my overview to see that I am currently in 9th place, with a possible finish of 2nd - 17th. Looks like I have mathematically avoided relegation in my first season, and its still March.

Thoroughly enjoying the challenge so far, and just had a period of all my decent strikers getting injured for varying short lengths with recoveries all overlapping.

Finally I've got Hendon, only took a second season of holidaying and a bit of restarting.
The second season seems to throw a few lower rep teams up, but that might be down to the reps of the teams going down.

Gloucester City & Heybridge Swifts came up in the second season if anybody wants either saves.

The season has begun very nicely. Despite being knocked out of the Setanta Shield, we just knocked Hinckley out of the FA Cup 3rd Qualifying Round. I have created a fantastic away formation that so far has left me unbeaten away from home in the league from 6 games. If only I could conjure up a strong home formation I'd bank on us securing promotion. My keeper Veiga has arguably been our most important signing so far. Touch wood he doesnt get injured! http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I've been given a five year contract (£210pw) and a five year plan to win the Blue Square South by the end of it.

Gloucester City - Conference South - June 2008

John Colby (http://img150.imageshack.us/img150/1641/johncolbyprofileoe9.png) has pulled his old tracksuit out of the wardrobe and taken the manager's position at Gloucester City.

The board seem to have reasonable expectations. Fight against relegation this year and aim to win the Conference South in five years time. Hopefully this means I have a patient chairman!

Personally, I'm delighted to finally get the chance to manage "The Tigers". I have plans to combine an Ajax-esque youth training approach with Brazilian-style football flair on the pitch. There'll be a heavy emphasis on bringing through Gloucester-born youth players into the first team and I hope that I'll be able to achieve success with this policy.
