  1. Hi All,


    I have created a very large cup featuring every english team, starting off with a number of group stages. 300 teams join at round 1, 300 teams at round 2 and 66 teams at round 3. I have changed the settings on seedings to random instead of divisional reputation, however for some reason the big teams all always join at round 3, and it seems to be teams joining in divisional order. How can i make it random (or all 666 teams at round 1)

    Oscar Borg is a Maltese international (I know right, an international player!!)

    He is an english player (Malta and Turkey are his other nationalites. Starts out at Villa, could be a good signing for you, I managed to develop him into a decent back-up player for villa in the lower reaches of the premier league. Ended up declaring for Turkey in my game, although currently only got U21 caps

    I'm planning on doing a fairly in-depth recap of what has gone on in England/the Rest of the World at the end of next season which is the 10th year. I only have the UK leagues loaded at the moment though, as I removed a fair few of the bigger European ones early on to make the game run quicker, especially since I don't think I'll be moving abroad any time soon given the speed of progress I'm making up the leagues haha

    Would be interested to see if Barrow have continued their great run you were telling us about earlier in the game

    In a bit of interesting news further up the English pyramid, Barrow, who started the save in the Conference, have just won promotion to League 1. This was masterminded by their manager of the last year, 32 year old Corry Evans. It's pretty interesting to see a player retire at such a young age in the save and then go on to be a reasonably successful manager. Fingers crossed both Barrow and Corry Evans can keep up their rise in reputation. 

    Maldon & Tiptree, everyone's favorite non-league Tycoon owned side, still just about find themselves lingering in League 2. They finished 20th in their first season and last season they narrowly avoided relegation by finishing in 22nd place. Their current manager is none other than ex-England international Goalkeeper, Paul Robinson, who will surely be hoping he can get a bit of money and improve on their recent performances. 

    Good to see a Cumbrian side doing well, all that successor money for trident must be getting siphoned off into the football club ;)

    Hard to tell, as the amazon link doesn't tell me what type of I7 it includes... other than that, both are similar specs so not a lot between them.

    Motorsport manager may require a graphics card, I've never played it, so couldn't tell you.. although a google search will tell you whether it does or not.


    So you think they are both good enough for footabll manager then? with the leagues i specified aove. I currently have this, http://www.tesco.com/direct/acer-es1-531-156-celeron-4gb-ram-1tb-hdd-laptop-black/769-9783.prd, are the above a significant improvement, i on't know much about computers
