Hello guys. I have been managing Barnsley for 3 years now. In my first year, I won the English FA Cup and got promoted from Sky Bet Championship to Premier League. I the next season, we somehow managed to stay up and not get relegated but were able to win the UEFA Euro Cup. This season we are in the mid table in Premier League and have reached the quarter finals of UEFA Champions Cup. Now, since my team has been playing above expectations in the Champions cup, I am supposing of my chances to win it. On the other hand, I have got a job offer from Schalke 04 for which I have been declared as the leading candidate with odds as small as 1-2. Schalke 04 is at 14th place in the Bundesliga. To be honest, I want a new challenge so I want this job, but then again, on the other hand, I don't want to leave my club until we are eliminated from Champions Cup. But as far as I know, Schalke 04's offer will force me into joining them immediately. I wanted some suggestions on what would be better for my career in the long term as I believe that Schalke 04 must have finances and players better than Barnsley, so I would have a better chance to prove my abilities.
Hi everyone! During my multiple managerial experiences in England I noticed that the TV selection criteria did not reflect the real situation of the TV coverage for English matches. We are all aware of the 3pm blackout disposition, but for many years now Premier League, Football League and FA Cup have further matches being scheduled to be broadcasted abroad. Just some examples of the overseas situation: - Premier League: all 3pm Saturday matches and Midweek matches have TV coverage - Championship: one 3pm Saturday match have TV coverage each week - League 1 & 2: one 3pm Saturday match have TV coverage during international break - League Cup: first two rounds have an additional TV match. Third Round have 5 or 6 additional TV matches. Starting from Fourth Round all matches have TV coverage. - FA Cup: one or two 3pm matches have TV coverage per round. So, I suppose the developers prefer to replicate domestic TV criteria and probably the overseas TV selection which I mentioned do not have a financial impact for the clubs (no addtional TV revenues, but maybe I'm wrong). But for the FA Cup is another matter. The club involved in overseas TV matches (or featured highlights matches in UK) receive a payment (still lower than that received by clubs whose match is broadcasted by BBC or BT Sport in UK), but this condition is not replicate in the game and could have a significant impact when you manage a club in lower leagues and reach the proper rounds of the FA Cup. So my request are: 1) Faithfully reflect the real TV selection for EPL, Championship and League Cup matches (for example all EPL matches marked with TV word maybe by giving a different note to indicate TV overseas matches) in order to achieve a further touch of realism 2) Add further real TV selection and payments for FA Cup matches I think these small changes could be easily implemented in next game or in next updates if developers are allowed to take account of overseas TV situation I Hope I'm making myself clear. English is not my native language. Sorry for the lenght of my post.
