I was going gradually through the game, but by the time I'd reached september there wasn't anything worth note, apart from a few youth caps and some pre contracts players signed with the clubs they are already at. I've decided just to holiday to the 1st update so hopefully I should be able to have an update during the city pool game tonight. Just to note I loaded all leagues in the game but a majority are on view only but if anyone wants to know how some teams are doing then feel free to ask.

Here's one for you all to try and work out. Brock Rockhard has yet to be capped for his country, Turks and Caicos, but he was made Vice-captain before the captain stepped down and now he is the Captain. I can't work out the managers thinking in not playing him.
