the auction one. I've decided that everyone will still swend their bids to me, just that I will send mine to Ridleys before anyone else and he will confirm that I haven't cheated.

hm. If we send them to each other at the same time or at least quite soon together then he wouldn't have time to cheat.

They could all be sent to an independent adjudicator so that no one cheats.

I'd volenteer but I want to be in the challenge. I'd vote for Dafuge if he doesn't want to be involved.

No, as it will take longer than a week as there are separate rounds for each position. So there are rounds for keepers until everyone has signed 3 keepers and then we move on to defenders. Rounds will last for 4 days.

I'm more than willing to do the job of 'Adjudacator' Robert. Sounds like a great sign-up and if I'm not the adjudacator, I would definetly attempt to sign-up, Pluckaduck

THe bad thing about people saying they would adjudicate is that it means they don't want to sign up.

Understand that Robert, What I meant was that I'd really like to be the Adjuducator, But if it goes to someone else, It's all good, I'd like to sign-up as a player, but only if I'm not the Adjuducator. Hope that clears it up mate.

So, I'm not entirely new here. I've not been active for a long time. I recently got my copy of FM09, and whilst looking for the patch, I came back across this website and thought, "Oh, yeah..."

Anyway, I've been lurking and reading through some of the threads, and was interested in a small AI Experiment, that may have some potential sign-up elements to it. Anyway, I was just looking for any of the more experienced CSE-ers to give me a few more refinements.

The goal of my experiment is to see what the effect of a good youth setup versus that of a bad one is. So, here's what I've done so far:

- Created two completely clubs, FC One and FC Two.
-- Both clubs have been given a very nice setup:
-- 99 million pounds in the bank; 75 to go on transfers, and brand new 45000 seat stadiums.
-- They've been put into the Premier League in place of Hull and Stoke.
-- Both sides have a moderately good repuation at 7000.
-- Each side has identical chairmen, One Smith and Two Smith, who are good businessmen, and moderately patient, but extremely ambitious.

- Now, here lies their sole differences:
-- FC One has a Youth Acedemy with a 20 rated Youth Setup.
-- FC Two has no Youth Acedemy, with a 1 rated Youth Setup.

Other than this, though, both sides are completely empty. I was considering leaving it completely up to the AI from here, though perhaps it would make sense to create a few (~10) players for each side with equal CAs and PAs to ensure that both sides have enough players.

Any other questions/suggestions/opinions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I think if they have too much money, FC Two will begin building a Youth Academy/improving their Youth Setup pretty quickly.

As a quick trial run, I holidayed through to September 1st using the aforementioned database. Here's what I found:

- Both sides spent roughly 20 million on about five players each. The CAs of the players were all in the range of about 140-160.
- FC Two had not yet spent any money towards improving their Youth Setup.
- FC Two were in 20th place losing all three matches, while FC One had managed to win a game, draw a game and lose a game to sit in 15th.

So, what I would do differently before actually starting the expirement would be:

- Reduce the sides' bank balances to about 20 million. This would be enough to allow them to add a few players, but would hopefully prevent FC Two from investing in their facilities also.
- Allow eleven players (one for each position) to sign-up for each side. This would ensure they had a decent first team, in addition to any signings. I would make each player with a CA of 150, and a PA of 170. This should give them enough ability to hammer out a mid-table finish at least in the first season.

I would post seasonal updates on both sides. Here I would include signings, players of notice, etc. I would additionally put heavy focus on the performances of the Youth Players and compare the youth product for each of the sides.

[QUOTE=Walcott\'s Wonderkids;2240025]I think someone called [I]Stephanie McMahon's Secret Lover[/I] did a challenge very similar to this for FM08 (and poss FM07), which followed your prinicipal, but for a club right at the bottom of the English football pyramid.

I think it's a good challenge... just blooming impossible for teams lower down the league pyramid!!! :D :thup:[/QUOTE]

hence it is a [b]challenge[/b] lol ;)

I just brainstormed up a new idea! get ready....

[SIZE="7"][B]Oil Tycoon![/B][/SIZE]

The goal is to make an average finance club the richest club in the world, then win your club's respective competition. Here's how it would work:

You must start with an [B]Arabian[/B] nationality, this includes the following nations:

[LIST]
[*]Bahrain
[*]Iraq
[*]Israel
[*]Kuwait
[*]Lebanon
[*]Oman
[*]Palestinian Territories
[*]Qatar
[*]Saudi Arabia
[*]Syria
[*]Jordan
[*]United Arab Emirates
[*]Yemen
[*]Maybe Egypt and Iran
[/LIST]

Your club must include at least [B]7 players from any of the above nations[/B] by season 5. [I]I will include a ddt.[/I]
You [B]can[/B] load the leagues of your choice.
Your club must have [B]okay[/B] finances or lower.
You [B]cannot[/B] win the competition and then become the richest club, You [B]must[/B] be the richest before you win.

If you get sacked, you must either [B]find a new club[/B] and take them to the goals above or [B]start over[/B].

Tell me what you think!

Bubba, its only been up for a half-hour, give it some time, haha. I think it could be pretty good, but I would hold off on posting it as there are already a lot of challenges, and speaking of challenges, when is your MLS one coming up.

I have decided to put off the mls challenge for 3 reasons.

[LIST=1]
[*]It will take me time to finish the database
[*]I'll have more time to get it started without peer pressure :D
[*]the oil tycoon challenge would be much easier to setup
[/LIST]

You are better off putting this one off because you have people who signed up for your MLS challenge, so to keep them happy :D you should post that one soon. Your edit was at the same time as my post so I wouldn't have been able to see that.

Put your MLS one up first as this one is still on the drawing board and you don't know what reaction it will get wheras you already know what the reaction for your MLS one is(kind of) :D

I was thinking for a Boys vs Girls manager sign up -

20 people sign up - ten as boys, ten as girls
10 go into BSS and 10 go into BSN (5 boys and girls in each league)
All have PA of 200
Its then a race to see who can reach the Premeirship first, keeping track of all trophys won on the way.
I may run one or two other top leagues but my Laptop isnt great with running mulitply leagus from other countries.

This is my first idea for it and it may extend depends on what people think.

Oh, doesn't seem that special then, could still be good if you gave it something really unique but otherwise there'd be nothing seperating the two genders.

But a 'unique' bit should be something that makes the game different, you would get identical results if they were all male or female as you would if they are split down the middle.

Evening all,

Got a question for you all:

With the exception of the English Championship can anyone tell me a league in Europe that has 16 or 24 teams in it please?

Many thanks :)
