San Marino Lottery
Setting The Scene
The reports are true, the Sammarinese FA have just announced that 24 youth products will be making the big move over to English clubs! These 24 players are apparently the most gifted players ever to come through the Sammarinese ranks! The question on everyone's lips, is can they live up to their potential?
San Marino has for a long time, has been living in the shadows of it's larger countpart Italy. Italy has poached several Sammarinese players in the past and so San Marino carries on as the worst Nation in Europe. The difference now is that 24 rising stars have pledged their allegiance to San Marino and will therefore give the country hope!
The English FA has confirmed it will allow these 24 young players to come to the country and ply their trade in the lower leagues, before their hopefull rise to fame! The Npower League 2 teams will welcome them with open arms, with each team allowed one player! Despite the fact that these players will soon team up for the National side, they are all pretty much enemies, looking to knock each other down on the road to greatness! There will be no love lost when it comes to facing each other on club level, but they will need to get along on the International stage! Can San Marino finally overcome the problems of the past and finally cast the Italians into the shadows? Only time will tell!
The Sammarinese head to England!
England are yet again looking towards foreign youth to light up English football after the FA confirmed the income of 24 Sammarinese footballers to League 2 teams! This is yet again going back on England's supposed intent to improve English players, but with several millions reported to be heading to the FA officials from the deal, you can see their motive.
There is little known about these Sammarinese footballers, but it is said that they could be the Golden Age of Sammarinese football and could make a huge impact from the word go! Only time will tell whether they can make it in England and whether they will seek to move elsewhere in the future.
Although we will be using the same idea as Toonbalmy87, I have changed the way the awards are done, but that will be the only difference. The element of mystery will remain and you wont be able to see your attributes. Apart from your 5 strong attributes, everything else will be random and it is up to you to guide your player in the best way possible! If your a striker and your not scoring goals, it may be that your finishing is below par, or you just are composed in front of goal, so it is up to you to guess and when the times comes and you win an award, you can use your guess to try and fix the problem.
Unlike the real world in FM, PA is not fixed and through winning awards, this can rise! The following is available if you win an award at the end of a quarter, but you can only pick 1 (No player can win an award 2 times in a row)...
1. Add 5 points to CA
2. Add 5 points to PA
3. Add 3 attribute points (1 per category, and will be chosen randomly if that stat is already maxed)
4. Add 15 reputation points (increasing your chances of moving to a big club)
We will have 2 players who will win an award and they will be chosen from 2 different categories... GK's and defenders, Defensive Midfielders & Central Midfielders will be the first category and the rest will be the second category.
If you prefer to use dirty tactics and maybe you have a rival for a position in the National Side, then you could choose one of the following...
5. Take 5 CA points from a fellow Sammarinese player
6. Take 5 PA points from a fellow Sammarinese player
7. Take 3 attribute points from a fellow Sammarinese player (chosen at random)
On June the 25th, I will announce the Sammarinese Player Of The Year Award. Only one person will win this award and they will be able to do the following...
1. View their attribute profile (In a secure way)
2. Add 3 CA Points
3. Add 3 PA Points
4. Add 10 reputation points
5. Add 3 attribute points as they see fit to any stat
In addition to all this, any player that surpasses 70 caps first, will be able to increase any stat or a selection of stats, using 10 attribute points, including a CA increase of 5!
