[FM12] The FA Academy returns!

41 posts in this topic

Last year I ran a signup that had been quite enjoyable. It consisted of a team of 25 young English stars playing as the 'FA Academy'.

Sadly, the hard drive I was running the game on broke down.

So, I have decided to re-do the challenge this year, with the same basic rules:

*A player must be eligible for England to play for the FA Academy

*A player may have other nationalites, but if he plays for them and cannot play for England, he will be sold

*The game will continue until the FA Academy has none of the original players, but I may well continue to generate to complete careers

*FA Academy will start in League One, replacing the MK Dons.

For those interested in signing up, I need the following information:

This signup is now full, aside from one Goalkeeper.

As they missed the boat, the first of YellowLittle, joeSDL and macdab55 to create a goalie gets the last spot.

Do others want to create some staff? I was just going to use England staff but I can get an assman etc from you guys if you like. :)
