    Default County League FM11 signup thread

    I have decided that I will once again run a County League, this time for FM11. I am going to make things a lot more equal, though. Teams will be drawn into one of two divisions AFTER signups, and will all have a reputation of 9000 (D1) or 8000 (D2). Your teams will also have a transfer budget of £50m, but the three players you pick will reduce this by their values, to a max of £15m each.

    The competitions will again consist of two 20 team divisions, a cup that starts with 8 groups of 5, of which 16 qualify into a CL style knockout. The new addition this year is a one off match Challenge Cup, which forces the teams to pick at least six Under 23s and three Under 21s for the match squad.

    I will need the following details:

    Manager name:
    Manager nationality:
    Manager DOB:
    Manager strengths (3 attributes that will be 20):
    Manager weaknesses (3 attributes that will be 1):
    Chosen team:
    Team's nickname:
    Team's Kits:
    Stadium name (stadium of 50k will be located in the county's county town).
    Your 3 chosen players:

    Would anyone mind if I created a manager avatar for myself? I'll only do this if we have less than a dozen or so signing up.

    Yeah, sure. Create one for yourself.

    Is there anybody with graphical skills who could help me create team logos based on the county's historical emblem?

    Also, would anyone like to add a nickname to their county? It'll look a little sterile if there's nothing like that in the news reports.

    A few suggestions for nicknames, off the top of my head:
    Oxford: The Scholars
    Shropshire: The Irons
    Sussex: The Saxons
    Yorkshire: The White Rose
    Norfolk: The Crabs/The Mustardmen
    Lincolnshire: The Six fingers *

    I once thought of something similar to this for FM09, with regionally-born players, but the database never worked. As an additional idea, which you can happily disregard, how about each county gets a 100(ish)CA real-life player who actually hails from the region in question? So Hertfordshire could have Adam Lallana, or someone of about that stature (I'm guessing his CA, don't quote me). Searching via the db filters/wikipedia may not make this quite as tough as it sounds.

    * Apologies people from Lincolnshire, I jest. You can be 'The Sausages' instead.

    I am about to perform the random seeding for the two divisions. I shall not announce the results of the seeding (which will basically place each team in either D1 or D2) until the signup is closed.

    I'm adding teams into the database now, but I'm still hoping for a few more signups. I shall start the game by Sunday, if I get time to add in all the counties. The non-selected counties will be added with random or traditional colours and have no staff or 'free' players, but still possess the same funds and stadium as the selected teams.

    BaritoneTrouble, while I like your idea I fear it would be a little unbalanced. It'd be easy to find people from larger counties like Yorkshire, and more populous counties like Middlesex, but when it comes to counties like Cornwall, who are really only notable for producing England's eternal-13 Nigel Martyn, or Westmorland, I think we'd struggle a little, particularly as WP uses a different form of county.

    Good point well made. When I made my aforementioned db I combined a few localities to bolster the squad numbers and still struggled with 'Cumbria/Northumberland'. I can therefore appreciate your position, and am greatly looking forward to this starting up soon.
    P.S. According to wiki Matty Etherington is Cornish...give me a few days for Westmorland!

    Heh, now find one from Rutland, BT.

    I won't actually implement your idea (it'll take far too long to find equal players from all 39 counties), but it's interesting to know there are such players available.

    Are you going to wait for all the counties to be taken before you start this or will you start it early if there are no new people signing up over a few fays?

    It will be starting in the next few days. I will add the taken counties first, before adding the 'empty' counties, with random stadia names.

    The empty counties will possess the same funds, but have no 'extra' players and no starting manager.

    Feel free, as I stated before, to add extra managers. I will point out now that you are restricted to one Division One team, though you may have as many Division Two teams as you wish. You may NOT remove players from existing selections if you wish for a second team.

    Yep, nearly added all the user teams now, then it'll be a matter of adding the 'empty' teams and setting the leagues and cups up.

    Chimpos chose Essex, as this was taken and he didn't reply, he has been assigned Huntingdonshire.

    Update: Division One sides all added, just 7 Division Two sides to add then awards, cups and logos.

    Cool, sorry I didn't see Essex was taken, Huntingdonshire is cool, is that a real County?

    Can't see many chants being made up, the only thing that ryhmes with it would have people banned from my ground!

    Huntingdonshire is indeed a real county, centred around Huntingdon. It's administered as part of the modern entity of Cambridgeshire.

    If you're wanting to know more, read about the historical counties of England, on which the counties for this league are based.

    There's no Cumbria or Greater Manchester here.

    Today, hopefully. I won't spend too long on putting logos in, so the main 'faffing' will be awards and the three cups (County Cup, County Challenge Cup and Super Cup).

    Update: Mostly done, will run test season and add/fix as needed.
