Ollie's Chairman game version2 - the story

Recommended Posts

Welcome! Learning from my first game and then Dan’s im hoping this will me a much improved version of the what i would consider a great version of the game, so here it is and we are almost ready for kick off, please take the time to go through the rules there are one or two that are quite complicated.

In case anyone wants to run the db to scout players or what not, i decided to use Chris’ unchanged (CA/PA) update as of the 4th of July so Silva at city and Hodgson at Liverpool and what not :)


1. You may part with as many managers as you see fit,the financial and moral implications are on you.

2. When sacking a manager you must pay a contract settlement, This will be what remains on his contract.

3. When approaching a new manager, you cannot just hire anyone. I will only accept realistic managerial bids.

if your target is without a club, I will check his managerial rep. If it's unrealistic, he will reject you. however any manager on a clubs legends or icons list

will be fair game, for example, Cappello to Blackpool is not possible however Daglish to Blackburn is

4. If you want to approach another club about their manager, contact them directly and negotiate a fee. Once both parties have agreed, PM me and I will sort it out.

5. When offering a manager a contract, you will need to set his wages and contract length. If you are the WBA manager and want Alan Pardew from Southampton, you will need to offer-

him a greater wage and a contract length.

6. Transfer and wage budgets are decided by you, offer too much and you could see your club in administration. I will not edit the finances on FM at all. I will provide 6 monthly financial reports

This lets you keep on top of things.

7. Once the game starts, message your club name and assigned transfer and wage budgets. I will implement your details into the game.

8. If you wish to sack your manager, simply write in the forum and i will then inform you of the costs to do so. If you wish to proceed, I will get it done and announce it on the thread.

9. i Can either offer FM weekly or monthly updates up to the chairman involved

10. I will not provide screenshots of individual players or tactics, sorry but it takes too much effort

11. Now for the tricky one please read with care! Haha

I have come up with a concept of the ‘FA’ for our game, this will include myself and two elected board members up too 1st January in the game, then there will be more elections where the head and the two other members will be elected. The board will be allocated between £10-£15m a year, too make decisions on of course the sacking or extension of a managers contract, not only of the main squad but also the under 21’s . This should add an extra dimension to the game :)

12. concerning transfers. You may make as many transfers chairman to chairman as you see fit however you are limited to one overseas transfer per transfer window and it must be at 3 times the value of that player so for example, Diego Forlan’s value is currently £8m therefore a bid of £24m is required to purchase him.

As soon as we have 20 members the game can begin and there will be a 2 day transfer window and this is also the window for the FA selection, everyone will receive one vote, although they cannot vote for themselves! If someone is really intent on being one of the 2 FA chairman spots up for grabs till January then I advise you release a press statement outlining what you wish to do in the role :)

These are the current chairmen of each club;

13. for all free agents an auction style transfer will take place, simply PM your weekly wage bid for a player e.g. 110k a week for Joe Cole and the highest bidder wins

Tottenhams new chairman Stewart Robertson has today given his full backing to Harry Redknapp.

"Harry has turned this club around since he took over and long may it continue. Harry will have around £15 mil to spend on players this summer with about £1.2 mil available for the weekly wage bill. We fully expect Harry to guide us into Europe this year and will be looking for a good showing in the Cup competitions. We will be moving for a couple of free transfers, but at the moment we will be keeping these deals private."

Breaking News!!

Fulham chairman hopefully Paul Wilmot hopes to tie up the purchase of the club in the next few Hours. Speaking exclusively to BBC sport he had this to say: I hope that the fit and proper persons test comes back positive and i am allowed to complete the takeover of the club. Obviously the outgoing regime have done great work and i hope to emulate there success and propel this club to the heights that the fans deserve.

The first port of call for any new chairman would obviously be to replace the departed Roy Hodgeson who left the club last week to take the reigns at Liverpool. Paul Wilmot is believed to be drawing up a short list of managers who he would feel could take his potential new investment to the next level.

Oh, ok. Missed that.

Then the board will wait to know which is their clubs. In the meantime, the man with the white jacket tells the president to get their memory medication XD

Anyway yes, dumb me. Got a neuron shortcircuit.

Then, West Ham.

If taken, Bolton, if taken, Blackburn.

Any teams left? If so, can I have one? According to post one, West Brom and Blackburn are up for grabs.

If I can join in, can I have one of these two (not bothered which although would prefer Blackburn) and I'll be back on tomorrow to get properly started?

The club is welcoming bids for the following players:

David Healy

Daryl Murphy

Sky Sports News: Sunderland Transfer List Players

Sky sources are now hearing that one more player has been put up for transfer by Sunderland chairman, Rhys Cartwright.

Kenwyne Jones is the unlucky man.

Cartwright was quoted as saying "After speaking to Steve Bruce, we have decided that Sunderland should be able to attract a higher calibre of striker, and as such Kenwyne is no longer needed. If any transfer was to go through however, it would be entirely dependent on Steve or myself being able to find a suitable replacement before the sale."

As such Sunderland are believed to be welcoming straight cash or player plus cash deals.

Do not worry about the Director of Football bit that's just adding to the article.

The newspaper made a typo. The current manager is Alex McLeish and not Ramon Diaz.
