  1. Host Qualification

    OK planning a big edit but need a little guidance before i get going regarding world cup and qualifiers I'm going to recreate the world cup as is and create the qualifiers slightly differently my question is if i was to set the World cup hosts to qualify automatically can i set qualifiers to work if every four years a nation is missing? eg. Russia for 2018 is missing from UEFA Quals but is back for 2022 quals with Qatar missing.
  2. he's sold his house and is moving to Florida as one of his kids is at the tennis academy there how many other club owners actually live in the UK id say very few of the foreign ones... i also wouldn't say he was incompetent either he's put to much trust in non footballing people who have screwed the club over (Di Fanti, Congers, Byrne and I'm yet to be convinced about Bain) but the argument about how useless or gullible short is, is best suited to the OTF forum rather than the database it could always be worse as we could be owned by venkys
  3. Sorry to be a pain @Gripperbut our elusive chairman has finally spoken to the media and says we arent actively for sale anymore but would entertain an offer if from credible sauce so what that means for FM18 ive no idea... http://www.sunderlandecho.com/sport/football/sunderland-afc/ellis-short-interview-everything-the-owner-said-on-sunderland-s-plight-1-8839979
  4. nice one, thanks @Gripper so we'll get relegated to league one with a bit more money
  5. @Gripper this from last year (after the extended the deal through to 2020) says £4m per year from Adidas but i agree there must be a clause to get them out of their £4m commitment for relegation http://www.totalsportek.com/money/premier-league-kit-values/
  6. Think sponsorship wise its very strange as the game has only the Dafabet shirt sponsorship deal should we not at least have "Additional Kit sponsor" for Adidas? the deal is till 2020 for a reported £4m per year: http://www.fcbusiness.co.uk/news/article/newsitem=3246/title=sunderland+extend+adidas+partnership http://www.telegraph.co.uk/football/2016/05/18/premier-league-kit-deals-and-what-they-are-worth/jermain-defoe-sunderland---premier-league-kit-deals-and-what-the/ theres also "Back of shirt" deal with Utilita signed for the year at £50k (trying to find it in writing but its what ive been told) https://www.safc.com/news/club-news/2017/august/utilita-strike-up-safc-partnership are the mains ones we should surely have?
  7. yea not sure why short is down as loves the club, bain claims he loves the club still but if hes trying to flog us
  8. It will come back into force if we go up (not likely i know) and survive though surely As has been said multiple times by Bain though is short is still underwriting the club otherwise we'd be in way more debt and probably administration
