It is just interesting for other people reading, also gives us a chance to spot anyone being naughty.

Memorable Results:

African Warriors 6 - 0 Hannover Park

Winner's Park 1 - 5 African Warriors

African Warriors 4 - 1 Bay United

Maritzburg 1 - 2 African Warriors

With Dynamos and Maritzburg being my two contenders for 1st place these are vital results.

Just wondering how everyone else managed with the wage budget? After I brought 3 or 4 free transfers in, my board wouldn't let me make any more signings so I wouldn't go over budget. I then had to release nearly all of the regens in order to afford new players. I noticed a lot of the screenshots from other players show no/hardly any transfers out, whereas mine shows about 16 players released... Also, some people seem to be about 20k in the red, others about 500k. Could it be that the finances are random? icon_confused.gif

Yeah, the starting capital seems a bit random.

The wage budget was a bit weird for me.

I started with very little room to work with, because all the youth players at the club were paid a hefty 80 €/week, which added up to about 90-95% of the available wage budget.

But before it became a problem, the wage budget suddenly went up by about 700€. At first I thought the board, somehow, upped it, but after a while I figured out that it was because a hefty youth grant was added.

(as the season progressed and some of the youngsters turned 17, I started offering them part-time contracts of a shorter length, to be able to cheaply release them, but then I noticed that that gradually reduced the youth grant, so I stopped doing that.)

Went a bit overboard with the spending!

Firstly what was your wage budget?

Secondly Abayomi Adibayo and Shasha Moleko are Luso Africa's best players so why did he join you?

Thirdly can you send a screenshot of your wage budget please.

Hmmm, youth grant? I never even thought of that! icon_razz.gif Wouldn't have made much difference as I'm sure the youngsters wouldn't have played for me anyway. Seems a bit ridiculous that they are automatically on 55 quid a week and you can pick up much better players for 20..

I got both of those on frees as well icon_biggrin.gif. I think even with a large database, different players come up and some stats are different too. So in one game, the player may be willing to join cheaply, in another he won't be interested or will want much more money.

I've played a couple of games, while I was waiting for my internet connection to bend to my will, and my team is like a chunk of turd with a fine layer of gold, so injuries will kill me.

Had a hell of a problem finding a goalkeeper. Had to go round everybody until I found someone desperate, a bit like my dating tactic with women. That said, some of the regen photos are frighteningly reminiscent of my dating of women as well.

Unfortunately to break one of the records in the records thread you have to be the team who break the record, so it would have had to be you team who had 4 red cards.

It has gone a bit quiet. Perhaps people are concentrating on new long term games with the new patch.

Small correction, dafuge: I finished 11th, not 12th.

Small difference, though that still keeps me in the running for a bronze. icon_smile.gif

Plenty of time left for any of you new folks starting this challenge to do better though. icon_wink.gif

Pretty sure it's a rare bug that randomly appears every now and again. It's been in the last few versions and SI haven't been able to track it down yet.
