County League FM11 signup thread

62 posts in this topic

I have decided that I will once again run a County League, this time for FM11. I am going to make things a lot more equal, though. Teams will be drawn into one of two divisions AFTER signups, and will all have a reputation of 9000 (D1) or 8000 (D2). Your teams will also have a transfer budget of £50m, but the three players you pick will reduce this by their values, to a max of £15m each.

The competitions will again consist of two 20 team divisions, a cup that starts with 8 groups of 5, of which 16 qualify into a CL style knockout. The new addition this year is a one off match Challenge Cup, which forces the teams to pick at least six Under 23s and three Under 21s for the match squad.

I will need the following details:

Manager name:

Manager nationality:

Manager DOB:

Manager strengths (3 attributes that will be 20):

Manager weaknesses (3 attributes that will be 1):

Chosen team:

Team's nickname:

Team's Kits:

Stadium name (stadium of 50k will be located in the county's county town).

Is there anybody with graphical skills who could help me create team logos based on the county's historical emblem?

Also, would anyone like to add a nickname to their county? It'll look a little sterile if there's nothing like that in the news reports.

A few suggestions for nicknames, off the top of my head:

Oxford: The Scholars

Shropshire: The Irons

Sussex: The Saxons

Yorkshire: The White Rose

Norfolk: The Crabs/The Mustardmen

Lincolnshire: The Six fingers ;) *

I once thought of something similar to this for FM09, with regionally-born players, but the database never worked. As an additional idea, which you can happily disregard, how about each county gets a 100(ish)CA real-life player who actually hails from the region in question? So Hertfordshire could have Adam Lallana, or someone of about that stature (I'm guessing his CA, don't quote me). Searching via the db filters/wikipedia may not make this quite as tough as it sounds.

* Apologies people from Lincolnshire, I jest. You can be 'The Sausages' instead.

I'm adding teams into the database now, but I'm still hoping for a few more signups. I shall start the game by Sunday, if I get time to add in all the counties. The non-selected counties will be added with random or traditional colours and have no staff or 'free' players, but still possess the same funds and stadium as the selected teams.

BaritoneTrouble, while I like your idea I fear it would be a little unbalanced. It'd be easy to find people from larger counties like Yorkshire, and more populous counties like Middlesex, but when it comes to counties like Cornwall, who are really only notable for producing England's eternal-13 Nigel Martyn, or Westmorland, I think we'd struggle a little, particularly as WP uses a different form of county.

Good point well made. When I made my aforementioned db I combined a few localities to bolster the squad numbers and still struggled with 'Cumbria/Northumberland'. I can therefore appreciate your position, and am greatly looking forward to this starting up soon.

P.S. According to wiki Matty Etherington is Cornish...give me a few days for Westmorland!

Heh, now find one from Rutland, BT. ;)

I won't actually implement your idea (it'll take far too long to find equal players from all 39 counties), but it's interesting to know there are such players available.

Are you going to wait for all the counties to be taken before you start this or will you start it early if there are no new people signing up over a few fays?

It will be starting in the next few days. I will add the taken counties first, before adding the 'empty' counties, with random stadia names.

The empty counties will possess the same funds, but have no 'extra' players and no starting manager.

Feel free, as I stated before, to add extra managers. I will point out now that you are restricted to one Division One team, though you may have as many Division Two teams as you wish. You may NOT remove players from existing selections if you wish for a second team.
