60 to One
And now the sign-up begins! One person will be the CSE Endurance King!The Concept
60 promising football managers have been born into Europe’s, arguably the world’s, top divisions: the English Premier League, the Italian Serie A and the Spanish La Liga. Their mission: to survive the longest without getting fired, resigning or moving clubs. He or she that does that becomed the CSE Endurance King or Queen.
However, there isn’t just one opportunity to win the title. There aren’t two. There are three. Myself, Ridleys and weeeman27bob are each running three versions of the sign-up: an identical database with no changes in the manager qualities but in each one, different things will happen and as a result, anyone can win. Who will fare best, those at small clubs, those at big clubs, or those willing to settle for a 10th-placed finish?
There’s only one way to find out…onwards we stroll!
The Important Stuff
Here’s a few things about your managers that you might need to know.
Every manager has started off at the club given to them by the Live Draw (see the sign-up thread). They also have this club as their favoured club to a level of 80%, and are on a £10,000 Full Time Contract with no set expiration date.
They have started with a Current Ability of 130 and a Potential Ability of 160, and Home, Current and World Reputations are initially set at 7000. They have been allocated 20 for some attributes and 1 for others dependant on their favoured ice cream from a selection of five, which they stated as they signed up. They chose their own nationality and also date of birth, although the game is slightly erratic in allocating the latter, although all managers are between 40 and 45 at the start of the game.
Here is a list of managers, with their usernames and clubs.

This is the heart of the sign-up. Each manager is given three lives. Once a manager moves clubs, resigns or is sacked in one save, run by either me, Ridleys or weeeman27bob, they lose that corresponding life. They do not lose the life if they co-manage a nation and a club, although they do if at any point they decide to leave the club and purely manage the nation.
Once a manager loses all three lives, they are out. The last manager with a life left at the end of the sign-up is the winner. However, if a user has not made a satisfactory contribution to the thread, they shall not win and the title will be passed down to the second person, third person or even further until someone who has been regularly posting wins.
Managers with the same number of lives are ranked by their job security. For two or more lives, the job security for all lives is summed and a score given, the higher the better. This is as follows:
2 Very Insecure
6 Very Secure
Following this post I will post a current lives table. Bear in mind that this lives table will not be updated as the sign-up progresses, but new lives tables will be posted after every update.
Updates come in threes: one from myself, one from weeeman27bob and one from Ridleys. These will be posted every weekend and reflect a month’s game time, although if for whatever reason we cannot post an update the schedule will have to change. After all three updates, a lives table will be posted.
The user posting the update will select their “Manager of the Update”. This doesn’t score points, but is good to keep track of how you are doing and is a nice sideshow. The reports will focus on managers who got fired during the month of update, and is guaranteed to cover every one of them, but will not necessarily cover every one of the 60 managers. However, with each update comes a table giving your progress in that one save, so you will know how you are doing even if you are not mentioned.
Managers mentioned in the report will be done so using their manager names. Hence it is important for me to post the above table so you can refer if you need to.
Please contribute to the thread and enjoy yourselves. Remember that us three runners have other things to do and cannot always be writing and posting updates. We’ll try and notify everyone in advance if we cannot make an update.
Further Writer's Notes (31/05)
We've restarted the thread due to the disappearance of mikeytwigge, and we've brought in a new third co-runner, who is to be weeeman27bob. Obviously, weeeman has to catch up with his updates and we will try and get you a mid-week update. That means that, alongside him posting his update for the first month, you will see our updates again. This is to preserve continuity and to keep everything in a nice order for archiving/future viewing. You don't have to reread our updates if you don't want to, although for some people, you might savour the time when your job position was as good as stable!
