  1. LEAGUE FORMAT We will be changing the U23s next season from the current two divisions to 3 divisions. We will have: Premier Division ( 8 teams) Division One (9 teams) Division Two ( 9 teams). What this means is that every team in division one & two will be in the mix for promotion and relegation as top 2 are promoted then 1 from next four goes up from play offs and bottom 3 relegated. A more competitive league all season. WHAT THIS MEANS FOR THIS SEASON Promotion from Division One this season stays with two auto up in top two places and 1 from play offs. Those three teams plus the top 5 in the Premier League will be the new Premier League. 6th to 12th in this season premier league plus the two highest placed play off losers will become Division One Division Two will be the bottom 8 teams from Division One this season plus the lowest placed play off loser CUP FORMAT The FMFA U23 Cup will change from straight knockout. There will instead be 6 groups (4 of 4 and 2 of 5) drawn randomly. These teams will play each other twice and the top of each group will qualify for Quarter Finals along with the two best runners up. Runners Up will be decided on points first then goal diff then goal scored. Quarter Finals and Semi Finals will be two legs and final is one leg on neutral ground.

  2. Change 7 - New Member Shop Item. Following this being suggested by @Todd in a discussion earlier in season. It was put to Admin/Staff who agreed it as an item. From Season 16 teams will be able to buy a 3rd slot for over aged/rated players in the U23 team. This will be at a cost of F£5,000,000 credits.

  3. It has been decided that from next season we will be introducing a bonus for playing an 18 rater in your U23 team. The reason for this is two fold, firstly a lot of teams are utilising all the higher rated players and these lower rated ones are not getting played and secondly to give teams the chance to help improve these lower rated players in their team as they will get abs from playing and the ab bonus as well for the manager come the end of the season. There will be no mandatory rule on this it will be down to YOU the manager to decide if you want to develop your players but the proposal we have gone with is this. Play at least one 18 rated player in your starting eleven for 60 mins or more in a league game and it will earn the U23 team a 50 ab bonus. There will be 22 league games next season so do it in all 22 games and that is a bonus of 1100 abs. At the season end the 18 rater bonus abs you have earned can then be placed on your 18 rated players which means you could level a player up to a 19 rater on the back of this. We have yet to fully decide if your bonus abs have to go on one player or can be spread across your 18 raters. It has also been decided to help in case some teams don't have 18 raters or any in a certain position (GK/DF/DM/MF/AM/FW) that we will have a draft in the pre-season of 18 rated players. The draft will go in reverse order of finishing position, so bottom division one first to top of premiership last.

  9. With youth promotions etc, many of the squads are outside of the limits. There's plenty of time to sort and many teams can demote players to the U23s as overrated players to address both but they need to be above 20 and below 30 before the start of the season. Squads sized over 30: Brighton - 33 @Graham Chelsea - 32 @Jason Fortune Leicester - 31 @willz121 Man City - 33 @Deefa Man Utd - 33 @Tom Newcastle - 34 @harry51 QPR - 33 @Joe Sheff Utd - 31 @Todd Squads sized under 20: Arsenal U23 - 19 @Redblueeagle Derby U23 - 19 @Dazoctaron Leicester U23 - 18 Man City U23 - 19 QPR U23 - 19 Sheff Utd U23 - 19 Southampton U23 - 19 @Alberti I appreciate some people may have sorted through outstanding transfers but just a reminder for those that haven't.

  10. Right in order to revert back to two Divisions, Admin have agreed on the following: Play-Offs will continue and the winners along with the two automatically promoted sides in Division 1 & 2 will go into the Prem for next season along with the top 6 in this seasons Prem. The reason for this is they will have earned promotion this season and it would be wrong to take that away from them. That will then give the 12 teams in the Prem. The remaining 14 will be in Division One.

  11. In general I like the idea of U23 and the idea of developing players for main squad, thought lately the gap between U23 and main squad has grown too big. If other managers don't sheet, it's there choice, I don't see that as a big problem.

  12. I dunno there is a log I think in Admin CP. I just need time to look and sort. I tend to think Ed will be right as he is not one to get it wrong.

  13. Just to try an help out: On the 26th April when Ed posted his youth scout purchase he had 67.5m credits (from the log) - 5m youth scout - 5m extra youth slot - 35m cash total: -45m 67.5-45 = 22m left So it seems ok. I wonder if you took all the credits at once when you did the scout @David and then took a break and that slipped your mind when you started again. Either way I think it's fine and Ed should have 22.5m left (unless i've missed anything)

  15. Due to the revamp of U23s to 3 divisions and group stage to start cup we have revised the prize abs and for next season they will change to. Please note that in the cup there are 6 groups in group stage and the top goes through to quarter finals with best two runners up. Leaving 4 2nd placed group teams who don't.

  18. 7. Changes to Scouting Due to 25 raters now been able to be bought and sold to FMFA they will be removed from scouting. Instead we will now introduce 29 rating for scouting. The cost of scouting will rise to F£7,500,000 credits. Also as it was thought they were high in cost the price of the scouts will be lowered and from season 17 will be (before age & secondaries added); 26 rater - £60,000,000 27 rater - £80,000,000 28 rater - £100,000,000 29 rater - £130,000,000

  19. 5. Change to FMFA Sales (Sales & Buying) From next season we will be altering it to allow 21 raters to be sold at a base price of £8.00m 25 raters to be both bought and sold. Buying base will be £40m and selling £25m) The prices for ages and secondaries will remain unchanged.

  20. In order to keep FMFA running as the game we all know and love we are bringing on board a new Admin. This is because with lockdown and COVID-19, Daniel has been tied up at home and having to do home schooling and other stuff and last year saw me have the shock of my life when I collapsed and they discovered a heart valve problem. It has been resolved but you just don't know what may happen in the future so it is wise to have another person on the Admin team. It also shares the load as all the stuff on here does take up time. Anyway to that end Nocky @Nocky is coming on board as Admin. He will take over the running of Division One games and the FMFA cup as he is out and I am still in the competition.

  21. We have decided to increase the credits. Firstly anything in the media section on the forum will now get 500,000 credits so you media stories and team post will get you more. Secondly the match build up for league matches has gone up to 250,000. So 8 match build ups or reports will net you £2m credits and that is enough to increase an u23 players secondary rating by 1. If it is a scout you are then 20 will do it. Remember the minimum league games is 22 games so 44 build-ups and reports available a season for league games. Hopefully this will help managers earn credits to get scouts, u23 upgrades etc from the members shop.

  22. Change 8 - Increase Secondaries on U23 Player We had been asked about an U23 or youth auction. With the raising of the rate from 23 to 24 for U23's which will see more players in senior teams last season going into U23s it has been decided there will be no U23 auction. Instead we have decided that the shop item allowing secondaries on an u23 player to be increased will be changed from buying a maximum of 6 is a season to 10. This is to allow managers to increase secondaries. We will also look at a couple of spot auctions for odd players in the season and include u23 players in that.

New teams will have rosters done for new season competitions.

  25. Next Change for Season 16 is for U23s. Admin have agreed that the rating of the players in U23s will be raised from 23 to 24. This means they will not be promoted two seniors until they reach a 25 rating. Please note this is for players aged 23 or less. The rule on over aged or over rated players remains at 2 and the staring line up (442) rule still applies that no player who would make the starting line up in the senior team on a 442 formation can be in U23s. The rule has changed due to concerns raised by managers over players rated 24 promoted to senior teams and sat not playing in senior squads.

  28. Been thinking about this for a while - not sure about your measures. However one thing that I think could be fixed quite easily is stadium capacity and gate receipts. (I can't do tables so please bear with me) Current Premiership Table: 1st - Liverpool - Stadium 75,000 - Total Gate Receipts for season 33,000,000 2nd - Man Utd - 74,994 - 32,997,360 3rd - Everton - 66,499 - 29,259,560 4th - Aston Villa - 47,500 - 20,900,000 5th - Preston - 59,500 - 26,180,000 6th - Stoke - 40,000 - 17,600,000 7th - Leicester - 49,500 - 21,780,000 8th - West Ham - 60,000 - 26,400,000 9th - Watford - 41,562 - 18,287,280 10th - Tottenham - 62,062 - 27,307,280 11th - Chelsea - 48,600 - 21,384,000 12th - Wolves - 40,264 - 17,716,160 As you can see, the 3 teams with the best stadium capacities are sitting in the top 3. Over the course of the season, these 3 teams will generate in excess of 10,000,000+ than my team in Watford. In fact, Watford have the 3rd worst stadium capacity for the league. Couple this reduced income with reduced prize money for a lower placed finish and Watford will be in a position of serious disadvantage especially as these discrepancies will only increase in time. As you would expect, the same thing plays out in Division 1: Current Division 1 Table: 1 - Burnley - 59,000 - 22,715,000 2 - Arsenal - 60,260 - 23,200,100 3 - Newcastle - 82,550 - 31,781,750 4 - Crystal Palace - 41,264 - 15,886,640 5 - Bournemouth - 41,124 - 15,832,740 6 - Southampton - 41,534 - 15,990,590 7 - QPR - 41,021 - 15,793,085 8 - Man City - 61,000 - 23,485,000 9 - Derby - 40,264 - 15,501,640 10 - Leeds - 41,467 - 15,964,795 11 - Sheffield - 41,012 - 15,789,620 12 - Norwich - 41,503 - 15,978,655 3 of the 4 teams with the highest stadium capacity occupy the top 3 positions. Arsenal, Newcastle and Crystal Palace were all relegated last season and unsurprisingly occupy top positions. Burnley were relegated the season before but have benefited from consistent management this season. Having ex-Premiership level squads coupled with increased revenue will ensure that these teams quickly bounce back up. The smaller teams from about 5th downwards will always struggle as they will struggle to generate the necessary revenue to compete with the teams that are relegated. I have only been playing since season 11 when Watford were re-introduced into the game but there has never been an opportunity to increase stadium capacity or ticket prices. It was mentioned as a possibility in season 12 (I think) but nothing came of it. I don't know what the best solution may be though there are several I can think of: 1) Standardise all stadiums so each team generates the same revenue 2) Remove gate receipts as a function of the game 3) Do nothing and leave as is 4) Allow teams to increase/decrease stadiums uncapped 5) Allow teams to increase/decrease stadiums with caps 6) Allow managers to set their own ticket prices I'm sure there are other solutions that I haven't thought of. Again as I mentioned above, I don't know what the best solution will be, but I feel that solving this issue will be a big step in equalising teams and reducing the gap.

  34. The FMFA is a virtual online game but the managers are real people. If any manager is unable to manage due to contracting the virus and falling ill (apparently its like having a bad case of the flu and can leave you lethargic with no energy) then please let a member of the staff know. Your team will be placed under caretaker management until you are well enough to take over. At the moment there is no plans to suspend or postpone any games however we have families and we are human too so if the virus affects any staff member we will assess what measures we can do (other staff taking on duties etc). If and only if all other avenues are exhausted will we look at possible postponements. Keep calm and carry on managing!

  37. All managers please note: 1) u23 rosters are now up for season 15 in their respective leagues. Your captain for last season has now been removed as captain and the 500 abs bonus removed. 2) All U23 rosters have been checked to ensure only 2 over aged or over rated players are in the squads. Where teams had more after re-rates then players were removed to get squads to have just two left. It is up to Managers to check their rosters now and decide wish to demote or promote players. 3) Senior rosters are also up in the relevant divisions. These will be sorted this week and we will be removing all players aged 24 and over that are rated 21 and under (25 for keepers). In fairness to managers you will get the season 14 fmfa value back for them. 4) The new shortcodes for the new teams are: Leeds - lee for senior team and ylu for U23 Preston North End - pne for senior team and ypn for U23

  39. He has to 18 rated so if he levels up he will earn the abs, if played, until they level up to 19. Then to continue getting abs an 18 rated needs to play.
