County Championship - Sign Up/Experiment

83 posts in this topic

I did this for FM08 a couple of years ago (http://community.sigames.com/showthread.php/146217-County-Championship-Sign-Up-(FM08)) and I will do it again for FM11, which will be much easier because of the competition editor.

Scenario: The Faroe Islands have long been considered as a footballing minnow by the rest of the world and the FA were fed up of this tag. In order to improve the national team's chances and increase the reputation, the leagues were disbanded and decided to invite the counties of England to represent the Faroe Islands in all footballing competitions.

Four divisions have been created to accomodate 40 counties - the 18 counties that play in the cricketing County Championship, 19 Minor Counties, plus 3 newly created teams: Isles of Scilly, Isle of Wight, and Merseyside

10,000 seater stadiums have been built, in proximity to where the cricketing counterparts' stadiums are located, and have the potential to be expanded to 90,000.

English chairmen have also been randomly allocated to each club.

The sign up bit is these chairmen want to appoint a person each to advise them on footballing matters before the new season kicks off. The Faroe Islands FA have organised that in the interests of fair play, managers and players will be allocated to each club randomly in a draft system. You must select a county to represent and then select a manager and 4 players to be entered into the draft. Do you select managers and players that are world class, but risk giving your rivals an advantage? Or do you select people that could weaken your opposition, but could also weaken your own side if selected? The decisions are yours to make!

Once all teams have been selected, then I shall reveal the identity of the players and manager that your team has been allocated.

I'll add to the first post the managers and players that each team has added, so please don't select players/managers/teams that have already been selected :D

I hope people aren't mistakenly thinking you're supposed to just pick the best players, seeing as many of them have been put into the pool.

Probably, Would be funny though if there were some more red herrings in the mix.
