    Dave. Have you decided what sort of format we are having for the second round? All at once, or turns again?

    Gonna go with Glen's all-at-once idea, but I'll also be randomising the priority order at the beginning of every turn, otherwise the same old people will be faced with going last every turn, which, especially after promotions/relegations are becoming important, is a huge disadvantage. This will not be revealed until the whole lot is posted though. If you have been beaten (in purchasing) by someone in front of you in the priority list, you'll be PMd and can change your position.

    No problem at all; consider them purchased. This means we can roll on with the first quarter of the season, for which I'll be preparing the update this afternoon.

    Once done, I'll run through the new format for the next turn and then we can crack on with that.

    July - October 2010


    Barclays Premier League
    As the only businessman currently in control of a club in the Premier Division, we will begin with Aidan Galashan. His Blackpool side have started reasonably considering their stature, picking up 4 points in their first two games; a draw at White Hart Lane, and a 3-1 victory at home to Wigan. They then proceeded to lost their next four games, leaving them a place above the dropzone - which for now is a respectable position. However, owing to the fact that Villa and Man City are two of the teams below Blackpool, expect this to change! They were also knocked out in the League Cup 3rd Round, by Preston. Blackpool spent £3.2M on players, the highest fee being £1M for Pedro Morales, and recouped just £275k, on Jason Euell. However, their value increased - a fact likely to please Galashan.

    npower Championship
    Continuing with Aidan Galashan, we look at Norwich. They currently occupy 4th place in the league - a very good start in their first season back at this level. They were knocked out of the League Cup by Wolves though. As far as transfers go, they didn't spend or earn any money at all, a couple of free transfers arriving as fringe players was all that happened for them in the summer window. Their league position resulted in a small increase in value.

    Moon McNamee now, the owner of Millwall. They sit in 16th in the league, but like Norwich, were victims of Wolves in the League Cup. £180k was spent on the Forest man Garath McCleary, but other than that, only loan players from the Premiership were brought in. Millwall were another club who gained a small amount in their value.

    Moving on to Arthur Bach and his Derby County side. County have had a storming start to the season, and currently top the pile in the Championship, although this is slightly dented by their penalty loss to West Brom in the League Cup. No money was spent here either, with Derby's great form down to the manager and the same crop of players from the previous season. Their value has stayed steady though, despite this.

    Mike Jablonski's Crystal Palace have also started well, and sit 5th. Alassane N'Diaye was sold to another Championship club for £1.2M, and that money was largely spent (£950k) on buying new players, the highest profile of which is Spanish full back Juanma. Palace were not at all up for the cup, losing in the first round at Port Vale, but their wise transfer spendings and good start to the season see them rise in value by almost £2M.

    The next club we are going to look at is Kieran Hayden's Swansea. The Swans have had a poor start to the season, and sit second from bottom after ten games. They spent £400k on an already decent squad, which was also bolstered with the loan signing of Man Utd's Chris Smalling. However, this was seemingly not enough for the team, who were also knocked out of the League Cup at home to Brentford. Despite the poor fortune, the club's value has increased slightly; something which will take the edge off the disappointing start for Hayden.

    Long Tym Toon was playing catch-up after having to pay £10M in taxes at the start of the season. This was not aided by his side, QPR, depreciating in value by £1M. Rangers sit 14th after a fairly mediocre start, and were knocked out of the League Cup by Sheffield Wednesday. No transfers were made, but they do have the arrival of Tommy Smith from Portsmouth on a permanent deal in January to look forward to.

    Stefan Guillermo put £5M from his own pocket into his club Nottingham Forest at the beginning of the season, and it has seemingly begun to pay dividends. The club sit 8th in the league, and were only narrowly defeated by Norwich in the League Cup. None of the newly invested money found its way to manager Billy Davis however, who spent only a small fraction of the money brought in by the sale of McCleary on the young Israeli Samuel Scheimann. Forest's value has appreciated though, by £3.25M, but this does beg the question regarding what has happened to the rest of the money.

    Reading are one of two clubs owned by Coach Crane, and they sit in 21st, just above the drop zone. They are, however, into the fourth round of the League Cup, where they will play Wolves. No transfers were made by Reading, and a notable decrease in value is probably down to their poor start to the season. Things are looking a little brighter for Crane's other club, with Preston sitting 10th after having been predicted a tough season. They are still firing in the cup, where a potentially lucrative trip to the Emirates awaits, and have increased slightly in value. Again, just as with much of the division, the club was very quiet in the transfer market.

    Leicester were recently bought by Uncle Scrooge, although he didn't live up to his name with the Foxes spending a massive £4.3M in the transfer window. Aided by the £4M sale of Jack Hobbs to Birmingham, players such as Alassane N'Diaye, David Edgar, Adam Hammill and Kostadin Dyakov were brought in to the club. The side sit 9th in the league, and are still going in the League Cup, with a fourth round tie against Bristol City to look forward to. Their value decreased ever so slightly, but this was more than likely down to the transfer spend. With a healthy bank balance himself, things are looking very bright indeed for Uncle Scrooge and for Leicester.

    Sergio Gonzalez is the owner of Cardiff, a club who have remained at exactly the same value. They sit a disappointing 19th in the league, and were ripped to shreds by Burton Albion (4-0) in the first round of the League Cup. No major transfers were made, either in or out, and it has not been the best of starts for the Welsh side.

    Symon Krajnik saw his Scunthorpe side slip down the finances table, but won't care a jot following their solid start in the league. The Iron sit 11th, and although they have been knocked out of the cup, look like they will be able to achieve a solid mid table position this season. The only major transfer made was that of James Brown from Hartlepool, for £450k, and it is likely this had the biggest impact on the club's finances.

    Lionel Agurre's Middlesbrough lost £5M when one of their board members fled with the money, but that hasn't stopped them starting well in the league. Boro sit second, just a point behind early pacesetters Derby County. They were beaten on penalties by Reading in the League Cup however. A successful use of the transfer market for manager Tony Mobray however saw the likes of Zsolt Lacczkó and George Elokobi brought in, as well as signing the likes of Bébé, Kyle Naughton and Junior Stanislas on loan. Boro have lost value, but not as much as the £8.3M lost on transfers and to the boardroom traitor, however.

    Abdul Al-Salami owns two clubs, and neither are doing particularly well. Coventry sit 17th in the league, and Leeds United at the bottom of the pile. Both are out of the league cup, but interestingly, both increased in value. Cov brought in Seamus Coleman on loan, and United brought in Kyle Walker on loan. It's been a slow start for Al-Salami's clubs, but despite the club's footballing performances, he will be pleased with their performances on the stock market.

    Hull City are owned by Phill Ewles, and have started well, sitting in 3rd in the league, and awaiting Tottenham Hotspur in the League Cup. This was achieved without manager Nigel Pearson feeling the need to strengthen the squad, but somehow Hull's value has dropped alarmingly. Their finances may be dire, but Ewles will not care if they are able to bounce straight back up into the Premier League.

    And finally, we come to King Tikki-Man, the owner of Bristol City. City are only 18th in the league, but are into the League Cup 4th round, where they will play Leicester, and are £10M better off thanks to a private investor. Only £1M of this was used to buy new players, with Isaiah Osbourne and Gary Roberts coming into the club. This leaves Leciester, and Tikki-Man, some money to play with.

    How the next round will work:

    1 - I will post a list of everyone's dice rolls here, and instruct you as to whether or not you have the option of an event.

    2 - You will all send me a PM back telling me firstly whether or not you'd like to take this option (should you have it) and secondly if there is anything you'd like to do on your turn. These include:
    - Buying and selling of clubs to the AI at face value. Only one purchase can be made per turn, although as many sales as you wish are allowed.
    - Buying and selling of clubs between players at an agreed value - of course you will need to copy me in on any email here.
    - Sacking/hiring of managers
    - Putting money into the club
    - Taking money out of the club (this will result in you being unable to purchase the same club again for 3 whole seasons following the time you sell it)

    3 - I will select the next order of play in a random draft (kept private) and PM those back who are no longer able to do things like buy a specific club, as somebody higher up the order has already done so.

    4 - Once this is all sorted, the quaternary update will be run


    Another thing to note (applies particularly to Long Tym Toon right now):
    If you are personally in debt, you will be forced to pay 25% interest per turn on the amount you are currently in debt by. This will take place every turn that you are in debt, apart from the turn you actually go into the red. In Long Tym Toon's case, this means he will begin paying more money at the end of this turn. To get out of debt, if you are in it, you have the option of selling clubs, making money from events, taking money from the club (which you can not put into a negative bank balance by doing so), or by taking a loan from the CSE Investment Bank. At this time, the bank will only allow loans in order to get out of monetary troubles, and will not sanction loans explicitly in order to purchase clubs. Loans are typically 15% APR.


    I will be uploading screenshots of the Premiership and Championship shortly, as well as a list of the positions on the board all players are at.

    This is NOT the order in which your turns take place, merely that of the first draft. Please PM me with your responses to events and plans for this turn. Once all 15 of you have sorted out your turn, the update will be run.

    NEWSFLASH

    An as yet unnamed consortium of businessmen has tabled an offer for Sergio Gonzalez' Cardiff City. Gonzalez rejected the offer, denying that his club was up for sale. However, there are reports that the consortium are seeking FIFA approval to force the sale through, citing the facts that their offer is very reasonable, and Gonzalez does not have the means to run the club well, as their reasoning. FIFA have yet to respond.

    Moonshine hasn't been online for a fair few days so I'm not sure how much longer until he sees that it's his turn again. I've sent him a PM, but if he hasn't replied or posted by tomorrow evening, we'll continue as if he's chosen to do nothing on his turn. I feel it'd be harsh to dish out any sort of punishment, seeing as this is only the first time, and he's bound to have other, far more important things, going in on his life.

    I wonder if I'm destined to always end up on white squares.

    Still Hull third in the league, looking good, can I change my stadium name to the Nick Barmby Areana :P

    Premier Division
    Aidan Galashan's Blackpool Town are by far the strongest side in the division, although this is mainly down to the fact that they are propping up the rest of the table. Four points off safety and at the bottom of the league, it's going to take some effort for the Tangerines to stay up this season. They are, however, still proving a solid investment for Galashan.

    Championship
    In England's second division, the two automatic promotion spots are held by Lionel Aguerre's Middlesbrough, and Phill Ewles' Hull City. The two are five points ahead of the rest at the moment, and as they are the two clubs causing their owners the most financial difficulty of all businessmen at present, they must both be praying that they stay there. Should either club gain promotion, it will be joy unfounded, as all monetary woes will be cast to one side with the arrival of the honour and riches the promised land offers. Veteran Hull forward Nicky Barmby, after whom The KC Stadium has been renamed, will certainly hope so. The playoff spots are currently occupied by King Tikki-Man's Bristol City, Uncle Scrooge's Leicester City, Burnley, and Preston, belonging to Coach Crane. Moon McNamee's side, Millwall, sit just outside the playoffs at present.

    Interestingly, McNamee is one of only three businessmen who's clubs have made a profit this quarter, along with Aidan Galashan (for whom the wealth of both Blackpool and Norwich increased), and Kieran Hayden - although the latter did pump some of his own money into Swansea to achieve this. Hayden's Swansea side are currently bottom, and the only one of our businessmen's clubs currently in the drop zone. However, with the bottom of the table currently really tight, Hayden shouldn't be too nervous just yet.

    All our sides are currently still in the FA Cup - by virtue of not having played yet - but only Long Tym Toon's recent acquisition, Portsmouth, are in the League Cup Semis. The story of Toon's purchase of the club is, as with many previous Pompey owners, shrouded with huge controversy. He allegedly took over £6M from his other club QPR to cover both the sale, and his own personal debts. Rangers' fans are said to be furious, and want Toon's head.

    There have been a raft of managerial changes. Within hours of one another, Guillermo and Tikki-Man sacked Billy Davies and Keith Millen from their jobs. Theodore Whitmore filled the vacancy at Forest, and Martin O'Neill agreed to make the move to Bristol. Brendan Rogers was sacked after a unanimous vote from the Swansea board, and replaced by Sean O'Driscoll, who was in turn replaced by Phil Brown at Doncaster. Reading decided Brian McDermott had to go, and he was replaced by Paul Jewell. And finally, after Roy Keane was sacked by Ipswich, Kevin Blackwell took the reins at the Suffolk outfit.

    After an alleged furious bust-up with his manager, youngster Ashley Palmer has quit Scunthorpe, and is now available on a free transfer.

    One final piece of massive news. After requesting a FIFA decision to force the sale of Cardiff City from Sergio Gonzalez, a consortium of businessmen has managed to receive a backing of 11 out of 21 board members, meaning they have forced through a reported £23M sale of the club. Gonzalez, who has seen his personal wealth increase by over £5M over the last half year thanks to his investment in the Bluebirds, is said to be unworried by this, and is seeking a new ownership post.

    I'm giving the remaining five of you until 2200 BST tonight to PM me, informing me of your move for this turn. Particularly significant to the three of you still with event opportunities; particularly King Tikki-Man with his vested interest event.

    Moonshine, having missed the last turn as well, will be evicted from the sign-up should he miss this, and the next turn as well. As we are still in the early stages of the game, I'd be willing to allow somebody else to take his place should this happen. I'll be sending him a PM to inform him of this in the event that he does not check the game thread before that time.

    NEWSFLASH

    It has emerged that 10% of the price of the recent sale of Cardiff City was funded by Aidan Galashan. This cost him 2293 points.

    Premier Division
    As ever, we start with England's elite. Man Utd are at the top of the table, as they were last quarter, and with a ten point lead over Chelsea, look like they will, without serious mishap, be lifting the title. Bolton are still clinging on to a CL place, and with a very respectable price tag, some of our richer businessmen may be considering selling their clubs in order to make a purchase. Our only man with a Premiership team at current is Aidan Galashan, who's Blackpool are still clinging onto the field gallantly. With a goal difference in keeping with those around them, and only three points from safety with eight still to play, the Tangerines are still harbouring hope that they can mount an escape. Their value is still rising on account of their great showing in the division, but relegation will surely cause it to plummet, as the likes of Hull City have proven.

    Championship
    Lionel Agurre's Middlesbrough are still leading the charge for promotion with seven to play, and are four ahead of the competition. They are firm favourites for promotion, but there are four teams not too par behind them - King Tikki-Man's rich Bristol City, Phill Ewles' not-so-rich Hull City, Burnley, and the late chargers, Preston, of Coach Crane. Moon McNamee's Millwall and Sergio Gonzalez' Sheffield United are both pushing Stefan Guillermo's Nottingham Forest for the final playoff spot - and perhaps more.

    At the wrong end of the table, Keiran Hayden's Swansea, Scunthorpe - belonging to Symon Krajnik - and Aidan Galashan's Norwich are all in a spot of bother. Will the businessmen choose to cash on on their clubs now in the event that their teams go down and in the process lose value significantly? Or will they keep the faith and stay with their ship? Remember - any club that is relegated from the Championship will be automatically sold at face value.

    Cups
    The League Cup semis were not a successful adventure for Long Tym Toon's Portsmouth, as they crashed out 3-1 on aggregate to Wolves. Toon will however earn significant prize points from their run, which will surely help alleviate his dire financial situation. Arsenal beat Wolves in the final. None of made it to the semis of the FA Cup - with the furthest round being reached the fifth. Blackpool, Bristol City and Portsmouth all crashed out at this stage.

    Managers
    Theodore Whitmore lasted not even two months at ambitious Forest, who was sacked midway through February, and replaced after a week with Blackburn assistant Neil McDonald. Whitmore must be wondering what he did wrong, keeping the side just out of the playoff places during his short tenure, and will go back to focussing his sole attention on his other job; the head coach of his home country, Jamaica. Uncle Scrooge's Leicester were not happy with mid-table mediocrity, and sacked manager Sven-Goran Eriksson for staying there. Steve Beaglehole is the current caretaker boss, but Scrooge will surely be mulling over the other potential possibilities before any final decision is made. Liverpool sacked Roy Hodgson after a poor Premiership campaign, and Sam Allardyce is the man they have chosen to take over. Former Blackburn star Alan Shearer has filled the void left by Big Sam.

    I'm sure Uncle Scrooge will search a manager!

    Dave, how that it works, I send you a PM with the new manager name or I have to wait for my turn?

    Aidan Galashan - 3 (square 12, no event)

    This is NOT the order in which your turns take place, merely that of the first draft. Please PM me with your responses to events and plans for this turn. Once all 15 of you have sorted out your turn, the update will be run.

    Mike Jablonski, Arthur Bach and Coach Crane all pick up 10000 points for passing GO!, so please consider this too when you look at your current points total, as it will not be added on the leaderboard until the end of this turn, although you do have it now.

    Stefan Guillermo has our first sabotage event of the game. I would like to inform him that these are the most dangerous type of event - some are very good, but there is a 30% chance of getting a negative event, which are very, VERY bad. The advantageous events are also unlikely to win you many friends, either.

    Season 1 Special Prize

    Yes, there will be prizes available at the end of every year, for the top 3 in the specified category. This time round it is for the Wheeler Dealer of the Year - the player who has earned the most money purely based on increase in value of clubs they have owned (between the times they have bought and sold them, or between the time bought them and the 1st July 2011). First place will be awarded 10000 points and 250 rep for their longest-owned club, second will get 5000 points and 250 rep, and third 5000 points.

    @letissierandhenryaregreat - You need to get rid of some PMs; I can't reply to you. But I can post it here: "No, it's the same as any event in that you'll find out what it is straight away. And it won't be posted in the thread; only club and point events are."

    You've all got until midnight on Tuesday (that's 33 hours) to finalise your turns. For Aidan Galashan, who has missed a turn already, this deadline is particularly important, and even more so for Moon McNamee who will, unfortunately, have his place taken from him in this sign-up for missing three turns running.

    Still waiting on Moon McNamee, King Tikki-Man and Aidan Galashan. Come on guys, all you need to do should you not want to do anything this turn is just inform me. Unless you do so, I have to count this turn as a miss. Which means for Moonshine, I'm afraid, the end of the road.

    £10m is a great help, and after looking on Google, I think it must have been Steven Malkmus, lead singer of Pavement, god knows how he had £10m to spare but it's greatfully received.

    Now to gain promotion and spend it all on transfers.

    Premier Division
    As expected, Manchester United did end up winning the title, by 9 points over closest rivals Chelsea. Shrewd businessman Mike Jablonski purchased Bolton Wanderers after enjoying some prolonged financial success, and the Lancashire outfit very nearly qualified for the Champions League, finishing 5th, behind Arsenal on goal difference. A solid investment already, it is proving. Less joy though for our other Premier League chairman, with Aidan Galashan's Blackpool finishing bottom on goal difference, and three points from safety, meaning that they would go straight back down to the Championship. It was a brave effort from the Tangerines though, and it has yet to be made clear whether Galashan wishes to continue his involvement with the club. Blackpool are predicted to make the playoffs next season, as they bid to return to the promised land at the first time of asking.

    Championship
    Lionel Agurre's Middlesbrough did end up sticking it out to win promotion - a huge achievement for the club - but not as expected, as champions. It was Phill Ewles' Hull City who were crowned winners of the Championship, after taking 19 points from their last 7 games; just two off the maximum. For both sides, this was not just a huge achievement in footballing terms, but financially as well, and both outfits can rest a little easier now their money problems are, momentarily at least, behind them.

    The playoffs were very exciting, with Symon Krajnik's new acquisitions Burnley heading King Tikki-Man's Bristol City, Coach Crane's Preston and late chargers Sheffield United, of Sergio Gonzalez. Third and fourth placed, Burnley and City, won resoundingly in their ties, each scoring four goals, and were set to face off in what promised to be an exciting and tight final. Tight it was indeed, with a penalty shootout being required to separate them. After seven spot-kicks each, former England international David James saved Michael Duff's penalty, and then scored one himself to send Bristol City into the Premiership, and their fans into absolute euphoria.

    Nottingham Forest missed out on the playoffs altogether in the end, after having occupied them for several weeks in the run up to the end of the season, despite the rather acrimonious signing of Eden Hazard, who only joined previous club Sunderland for a whopping £17.75M two months previously. Hazard moved to Forest for what seemed to be a free transfer, and an independent panel is looking into the signing, although the chances of Stefan Guillermo's club facing punishment is reported to be very slim.

    In stark contrast to them, Scunthorpe and Kieran Hayden's Swansea suffered the heartbreaking fate of relegation. Aidan Galashan's Norwich City went down too, completing a dastardly season for him; both his clubs being relegated, as Mike Jablonski's Crystal Palace narrowly escaped the drop. Following the descent in division to League One, both Hayden and Galashan sold their clubs, and will be looking to invest in new ones when the new season begins.

    These three sides will be replaced next season by Brighton, Charlton and Sheffield Wednesday, all of whom were promoted from League One.

    Cups
    Following a reasonable success for Portsmouth in the League Cup, having made the semis, the FA Cup didn't prove such a good showing for our clubs. Blackpool and Portsmouth went the furthest; this being the fifth round. Brentwood made the semis, and Ipswich made the final, but neither of these are owned by our businessmen.

    Managers
    Uncle Scrooge decided the vacant hotseat at his side Leicester would be filled by former Barcelona B manager Luis Enrique. Norwich sacked Paul Lambert after his failure to keep the side up, and Brendan Rodgers made the move to Carrow Road to replace him. Birmingham and Wigan sacked McLeish and Martinez respectively following their relegations, although Blackpool opted to retain the services of Ian Holloway. Both Birmingham and Wigan opted to promote their assistant managers; with Andy Watson and Graeme Jones becoming managers for the first time.

    They go straight into your held points, so can be used to spend on anything. They are calculated based on achievements in competitions, competition and club rep, etc.

    Sure - risky announcing it in public though! Should anyone ahead of you (assuming there is anyone ahead of you) in the draft see this and decide they too want to buy Doncaster, you could be losing out. Everything you've requested is absolutely fine though.

    Didn't do too badly in the awards, but my latest market involvement with Doncaster should change that.

    This is NOT the order in which your turns take place, merely that of the first draft. Please PM me with your responses to events and plans for this turn. Once all 15 of you have sorted out your turn, the update will be run.

    Moon McNamee, Stefan Guillermo, Aidan Galashan, Uncle Scrooge and Kieran Hayden all pick up 10000 points for passing GO!, so please consider this too when you look at your current points total, as it will not be added on the leaderboard until the end of this turn, although you do have it now.

    Abdul Al-Salami, despite passing GO!, does not pick up the 10000 points, due to an event card which contradicts this bonus.

    However, I regret to announce that due to inactivity, Moon McNamee is evicted from this sign-up with immediate effect.

    If anyone wishes to take over his assets, please inform me IMMEDIATELY. First to do so will take over, but you MUST pledge to be active in this sign-up.

    If you're up for it then you're welcome to. What would you like your businessman's name to be? You'll inherit Moonshine's club (Millwall) as well as points - currently 44744 (including the points gained for passing GO!)

    Well now there are no regrets!

    Matt Flamers it is - the associate of Moon McNamee taking over the former's business empire after his sudden and unexpected disappearance. Matt Flamers is now chairman of Millwall, and has an estimated worth of £65.5M.

    Hey dave think you may have got calculations wrong.

    According to latest update on club values then Reading Lost Value, and preston gained value. You have them both as breaking even.

    Unless i am missing something of course?? Not that it makes a huge amount of difference but wondering if the most recent club values are right before i PM you my moves

    Oops, you were right. For some reason, I'd calculated yours wrong (from the end of the third quarter as opposed to the fourth) but not anybody elses'. The most recent club values were always right, it was in the profit calculations I had made my mistake.

    It is ok but the owner of Reading and Preston Coach Crane demands compensation, a cool 5000 points would do it

    Dave, a head's up for you for Symon. I am actually on Space 10, I was on Space 6 on my last turn.

    Oops, sorry bergtaur! I made a couple of mistakes last night then it seems! Being on square 10 rather than 6 shouldn't affect anything you do though.

    Sorry to point out another possible error, but I thought I recieved my GO! cash last turn when my card put me on the square? (I could have that wrong)

    What can I say, I had a bad night! :P Cheers for pointing out all these mistakes guys, don't think any less of me for making them all! It's the middle of exams and my brain is tired from all the learning I've been doing to make up for missing so many lectures.. it's been a bit slow lately!

    I forgot to update your board position before I rolled the dice for this turn Biscotti, so you're very right. Very honest too. I'll change that now, and with that I'm afraid you don't have that extra 10k points this turn.

    Nothing to do. But at least Leeds and Coventry made some good runs up the table at the end

    Can I make myself a reserve if anyone else drops out? Didn't want to join initially because of exams but now I have no reason not to.

    Sure thing - although I don't know what the chances are of someone else dropping out.

    Still waiting on coldkohmew to inform me of his moves for this turn, and for Chimpos to reply to my last PM.

    Sorry thought I had replied to the latest PM, I#ve cleared out my mailbox, so have lost it. If I'm holding everyone up and you can't resend, then I wont take the sabotage card and will do nothing else.

    Any chances of this being revived? I realise a lot of the participants may have drifted away during the outage, but it was a great concept and was barely getting started

    I accidently overwrote the main save file when looking at one from three updates earlier for information. So that, as well as the delay and that means I'm having to end it for now. I enjoyed doing it too, so you can be sure that a while down the line, most likely with FM2012, it will make a revival.

    I've just begun another sign-up now based on one I did in 2009 which will see me through until the end of FM11. Feel free to check it out if you like, and I'm sorry about this one ending!

    I believe Cuddlefish was the first of about 4 people to do that in the space of a few days, so yes, he gets the credit :P

    Shame about the save, but I shall hold out hope for the FM12 version Not in the market for signing up to anything new (unless it looks really really good), so I'll pass on the OFL for now
