Yeah I converted 10 to Iceland from all over... 4 from the Ivory Coast...

Ivory Coast has a lot of raw talent that needs one of us Icelandic Managers. I went first for the Irish 21-unders... and they sucked, now I'm at the Icelandic 21-unders and I'll get sacked sooner or later then I'll put in for more opportunities. At least I have 2 icelandic defenders worth 3 mill each... too bad they don't seem to put Iceland over the top lol

Oh and once you get past the group phase of the champions league/europa cup... no more vacations lol

Well 1 day ones :p

The striker who scored 2 there is now up at £2.4m, not bad considering I got him on a free!

Yer.. They seem to be sucking this season.. Mid table in the league :S I'm sure they will pick it up later :)

Juventus aren't really the club they were

Juventus varies a lot, they've won the Europa Cup on mine, then they get knocked out of the group stage of the champions league the next season lol

It came out at about 4:30pm GMT :) Lets put it this way: attacking strikers suck, supporting strikers own and wingers are insane.

Oh and the AI now tries to buy ALL of your players, I swear!

That can be a good thing :D

Although I'd rather have another club from anywhere at least try to hire me... world class manager and not 1 offer to go anywhere lol

I got loads of offers for a while but not many since I have been doing triples.

It's quite annoying when you refuse or negotiate it up and the other club refuses then your player wants to leave.. I had sold £3.8m of players though :)

I then found replacement players on frees :p

I use a poacher/deep lying forward. I can now "control" games better, I.e my defenders are much more of a unit :)

Part of my problem with the striker might be that he is new so don't read too much into it :)

I'll find out soon enough... Defenders working as a unit is good as long as its just mine :)

I'm just looking forward to big clubs offering me loads of money to manage them to success

But you need those players to succeed, it's a fine balance. The defensive play does seem less eratic, ie they don't get pulled out of position so easily

This thread will slow down for a while as I have several reports to right IRL :(

Season 15 Prevue - Urvalsdeild:

Results | Expectations | Media Expectations

This time we came joint top with OL! We did really well. We are expected to win everything but a nice big budget will help!

Finances | Transfers

Lots of money! I'm upgrading facilities like crazy!

The new patch means the AI managers are more aggressive, really annoying!

Squad

It looks worse but it's really better :)

Key Signings

1. Bruno. Can play in so many positions, he is really quite good and 17 finishing!

2. Rodrigo. He should be a top striker, 18 finishing should help me score some more goals and break that magic 60 mark!

Youth Spotlight

All carp this year again.

If you want any more screenshots then just ask me.

£3.8m coming from transfers might help me :p

I can up it to £13m, or wage to £190k p/w and £6m transfer

Those merchandise sales must be huge for Michael Jackson :p

They were massively underpaided. I think I found some of the best youths in the world and tied them down for 5 years and gave them play time. I am on the favoured personnel for most of them :)

Also like the logo on each update?

Yes it is sir :)

I might soon be one of the richest clubs in the world.. £2.4m bid just came in for Tottenham for my youth.... Director accepted it, I would like to keep him but £2.4m is HUGE

I think it's because the club is part of a sporting complex that is mainly a bowling allay?

Youth was sold for £2.4m :'(

Yeah a lot of Icelandic clubs are sports clubs of everytype IRL the one I play Afturelding has over 100 coaches and 10,000 members who play over 50 sports of all types...

Yeah I'm just out of the top 100 richest clubs now... we're worth 40m now... wow my board doesn't do that...yet lol

No, it's known that they offer for the "real" value of the player not the release fee :)

Now to see if these transfers have damaged my team.... Not looking forward to Barce now :(
