Teamsheets are due each week on a Wednesday and Sunday at 8pm GMT.
If you are still in the trial stage of your career, a missing sheet will result in immediate sacking. Otherwise you are permitted 3 missed sheets in a row before you are removed, or 6 throughout the season.
In the event of a league round being entirely free of errors and missing sheets, each club will get a £250,000 bonus to their finances.
Two errors in a teamsheet will result in a T tactic given to the team.
One player in a senior teams starting eleven MUST be aged 22 years old or under. They must play for a minimum of 60 minutes (unless the player is injured or sent off in the first 60 mins). Failure to meet this rule on your teamsheet will result in the following: i) First Offence - £1,000,000 fine ii) Second Offence - £1,000,000 fine plus 100ab reduction to highest rated outfield player in the squad. iii) Third & further Offences - 3 points deducted iv) An under 22 player will be added to your starting eleven at the expense of the highest rating player in the U22's position.
To stop missed sheets all teams are required to hire an Assistant Manager (AM) and submit a formation and tactic that the AM will play in the managers absence. An Assistant Manger will cost each club £2,000,000/season. The team will then be charged £500,000 for each time the AM has to sheet in the managers absence.
At the end of each season the re-rater is ran. These are the current rates:
1-19 = 320 50 20
20-21 = 200 30 10
22-26 = 100 5 2
27-29 = 0 0 0
30 = -50 -5 -2
31 = -115 -50 -25
32 = -215 -110 -210
33 = -300 -242 -220
34 = -475 -350 -230
35+ = -500 -475 -550
Players age on the 1 January every year and retire when they retire in real life at the end of the season closest to that date.
