NEW for Season 14

Recommended Posts

We have decided that we will be expanding to 24 teams from next season. This is because we are pretty full with managers and it helps with the cups.

 

Coming into the league (division one) will be Brighton, Norwich, Sheffield United and Derby County.

 

It means that this season there will be no relegation from the premiership. Two teams will then get promoted as usual taking top division to twelve and the four new teams will add to division one's remaining eight to make twelve there as well. 

The same will apply to the U23's and the four new U23 teams will go into division one.

As we previously announced we are introducing a second international competition the Asia Cup from next season. The next two highest teams in the premiership plus the FMFA Cup winner & FMFA League Cup Winner will qualify. 

This Cup will be run on the same format as the Anglo-American with four Asian teams joining the four and then there will be two groups of 4 teams. The top two teams progress to the semi-finals.

 

This now means that the FMFA League Cup format will change slightly.

The cup will remain for teams not in Anglo-American or Asia Cups.

So it means those 16 team teams (12 current teams plus four new teams) will enter round one.

Quarter Final will be the 8 winners from round 1

Semi-Final will be the 4 winners from the Quarter Finals

Final will be the semi-final winners

The cup remains two legs with away goals counting if needed after two legs apart from final which is on a neutral venue.

 

The FMFA Cup will also change on who enters where.

Round 1 will be the 12 current teams who do not qualify for the Anglo-Anglo-American Trophy and Asia Cup plus the four new teams to the league.

Round 2 will be the 8 winners from round 1 plus the 8 teams in the Anglo-Anglo-American Trophy and Asia Cup

Quarter Final will be the 8 winners from round 2

Semi-Final will be the 4 winners from the Quarter Finals

Final will be the semi-final winners

The cup remains a single leg knockout competition with home advantage apart from final which is on a neutral venue.

 

U23 Cup format will be;

Round 1: Bottom two teams in this seasons U23 premiership, Division One teams plus four new clubs U23 teams. (16 teams)

Round 2: 8 winners from round 1 plus top 8 teams in the U23 premiership this season.

Quarter Final will be the 8 winners from round 2

Semi-Final will be the 4 winners from the Quarter Finals

Final will be the semi-final winners

The cup remains two legs with away goals counting if needed after two legs apart from final which is on a neutral venue.

Ok I have thought about this for a while and notice that nearly all have put any U23's that are 23 or below rated into youth teams and they are not getting a shot or chance in many senior teams. So I have pinched an idea from another site to give managers the option to play them in the seniors and make it perhaps worthwhile in the long run.

 

Firstly it will not be mandatory it is entirely up to the manager how he develops his youth or even if he wants to.

If any player who would qualify for U23's (so U23 and 23and under rated) is played in the senior team then the minutes they play in the season in the senior team you will get as ability points to give to that player across their abs. Just to put this in perspective, there are 22 league games this season which is 90mins x 22 a player plays them all which is 1980 mins so a possible 1980 abs available in the league, never mind cup games.

The player though has to be in the senior team, if he is demoted to U23 then those minutes earned will not become abs as they are now a youth player. That is the choice you have if you want to demote, which is lose potential abs. However if you promote a player up to seniors then minutes earned above what they had when promoted will be turned to abs. So a player has 180 mins in youth and you promote and he goes on to play in seniors and has 880 mins at season end then they will have 700 abs. The moment they leave the seniors to join the youths they lose those potential abs.

The choice then is yours where to play your upcoming or potential youth stars. Risk one or more in the senior team and get the bonus for doing it or not?

 

This will come in from next season, Season 14.

Changes to Members Shop for Season 14

 

1) It has been agreed that injury/suspension packs and fitness packs will be limited to two per season per team. That is 2 for senior team and two for U23 team.

This is to make the game more realistic and also get managers to consider using their squads instead of waving a magic wand and clearing the problem with packs.

The lottery will be be changed as well in season 14 and there will be fitness prizes but if won and chosen they will be an instant fix to fitness and not savable.

 

2)The price of the "Increase Secondary Rating by 1" will be increasing to F£2,000,000. However as secondaries are generally low in U23s we are raising the number a year to a maximum of 6 per season and a limit of 3 on any 1 player. It means that the price on secondaries on scouting will change also to be in line..

It was agreed the cost was really to low in comparison to other items and easy to afford and also if build-ups and match reports are done it is easy for managers to earn F£'s 

 

3) The scouting will also change. The youngest player a senior scout can source will be 22 years old. Due to this the oldest a youth scout can source is 21 years old.

This change is due to managers scouting 19 year old, 27 raters which if we continue this will have teams full of young superstars in a few seasons rather than an odd one. Also it is rare in real life to get such a high quality young player in a team.
