well it could be a case of people signing off cheap players e.g. if you were city you could sell cheap reserve team players to the league 2 or league 1 team or easily loan out players

Correct. That would be one of the links they could make.

The clubs would be working together to achieve success. The more success, the more points. It might make it easy at first to achieve success at League 2 and League 1 levels but eventually you'd have to make a choice on which team you were going to go with to get you the points. Is it worth trying to win the Champions League with City or go for the Promotions of the others?

G'day All.

After much waiting, pondering, finger-crossing, IT technician calling, I'm pleased to announce that the premiership predictions league will be starting from this Thursday afternoon (My time:D). It was supposed to start about 3 weeks ago, But I was unable to due to my computer going bang. But It's all fixed now, and will be the base of the Premiership Predictions League come Thursday.

I am considering whether to do it like a normal Predictions competition with just the scores of the EPL being guessed and nothing else happening apart from EPL action, Or make it a little more 'new-age' and adding things in such as a weekly bonus question, Champions League ties and other random point scoring questions. The only problem with that is, That there could be weeks were points are worth more than others and it will give an advantage to players who put in their predictions one week and pick up a stack of bonus points, to those (Such as Canvey!! in last seasons version) who participate ever week, but may not do so well as far as bonus questions. Thoughts???

Another thing is, That To make up a bit of time, I am thinking of for say the opening 5 rounds, putting two weeks of predictions in so that we can get through the hardest part (The start) a little quicker. Once again, thoughts???

Can't wait to start come Thursday, Pluckaduck.

Hey Pluck, how about including another big league, eg Italy, Portugal or Spain. Just might add a little bit extra to it all :) And as for the bonuses I love that Idea as well :)

Nice to add some sort of bonuses in Pluckaduck, you could do the team and player stats, for example 'who is the current top scorer'

Count me in to the overall game, i did it last year but finished 7th or something so i'm ready to win this time :D

I'd personally say no to the idea of bonuses. Keep it nice and simple and cut down on the work for everyone :thup:.

Has there been a "Restore a Fallen Giant" challenge? I.e. taking a team that has fallen down the pyramid (like Fortuna Dusseldorf, Leeds, Nottingham Forest) and returning them to their former glories?

There has been in the past but there doesn't seem to be an FM09 one.

Not for FM09 but I'm sure it was a FMS at one point.

Hmmm, I have a bit of a decision on my hands. But something you guys could probably give me a better idea of, is that would you mind if for the opening five week's, I played two rounds at a time? I'm sure it would be alright with everyone, But it's better to make sure first before going ahead.

Otherwise, Happy FMing everyone!!!

Also because I don't want to run too far into FM10 and by doing this, It will cut off 5 weeks of that time.

Oh sorry, had forgotten you already posted that, I think it is a great idea.

Has there ever been an experiment to compare the strengths of the game's default tactics?

For example, all EPL teams and players set to be equal, each one set to use one of the game's default tactics and see if a particular one is more successful in the ME?

I don't believe that has been done, and it would be interesting to see, and I would predict that different tactics would do well against other tactics not necessarily one that "fits" the match engine

What rep do you think I would need for a created team that has no players, created staff with 20s in specialist areas,starting in one of BSP/BSS/BSN and can only use players that come through the youth team?

This is just an idea, I won't be doing yet

Replace the A league with teams that you make up. You then have an auction for players. Categories-Legends (Cantona, George Best etc), Current stars (Messi, Ronaldo etc), Young Brazil starts (Marquinhos, Carioca etc), young stars(Kadlec, Anier etc) and a few more categories. You then bid for packages that include attendance figures, stadium size, training facilities etc. I want your opinion

Have you considered how you'll get the attributes for the legends? That'd take a lot of work.

I imagine that would take one hell of a lot of research and editor work.

What age would the legends be also what PA and CA? Obviously Zidane would have 20 for Butt de Head.

Does anyone else think there would be interest in the default tactics experiment?

I would if you do it in two months after you have proved your commitment by finishing your story, sign-up and challenge.

Complete Dafuge's challenge before I do(if I do) (I only started two days ago) and I will happily take part. :D

Your story has improved after you took some advice on and it is going well.

You sign-up's updates improved slightly from your first few attempts but I still agree with mikey and they were not of a high enough standard, plus people didn't bother about it because they thought that you were just going to quit again after a few matches because of what you did with your other sign-ups.
