Wow, fast work this week Paul!!  Thanks

Bit of a mixed bag this week in the playoffs, pleased to see Leicester get a win, hopefully recent signing Harry Wilson had a decent impact!  Sorry to see Brighton lose though, although they have come a long way in a very short space of time.  

Well done to all the winners, some interesting finals there.

No, used to manage Brighton so always look out for their results but Leicester, just a case of speaking to Colin recently regarding a deal.  Was hoping a player he swapped in would help him.  Nice fella.

I’m struggling with Barcelona and Nacional at the moment. Nearly didn’t get a turn done last time and I didn't even do any deals. I remember a time when I did loads of research and went into a lot of detail but finding it hard at the moment.

Not as much time as I think it deserves. Varies from turn to turn and is very travel dependent. Vegas, Barcelona, Lisbon, Vilnius (now) and Barcelona again next week - in the last 6 weeks. No travel the week after that but then Barcelona, Vegas and New York before holiday on 12th August.

To be fair, that is a lot of travelling in a short space of time and I think you've said before that you don't get to see much of the places as you are working all the time?

Must be pretty tough that, especially with a young family?

Although ....... I did find out yesterday that we get free seats including 4 in the Directors Box at EVERY football league game (no Prem) so will be seeing more Forest next season. No idea how I didn’t know this before now.

At least Forest will have a decent keeper next season now they've signed Muric on loan for the season.

Transfers still ongoing and a small league reorganisation which will mean all leagues will be reduced to one division of 12 teams next season except for the English league. This should negate the last of the problems with windows 10. Each league will also have a league cup, youth division and a super cup game and four teams in the non-league...

Yes, there were 34 players on loan at clubs that were relegated to the non-league in the reorganisation and they have been moved to league clubs who needed them.

A few things to take into account this week.

1) There is some small corruption to the printouts caused when the system ran out of memory whilst printing the team formations at the end of each match report and it doesnt always show the tactical system most employed where it should.

2) Every club has been "equalised" so no longer do we have large, medium and small clubs. Chelsea and Hartlepool are now treated exactly the same in terms of available income and asset expenditure. Every club is now considered to be "average" so for smaller clubs you can charge more for tickets but staff wages and building costs will have increased and for the large clubs like Chelsea and Arsenal you wont be able to charge a ticket price premium for being in London. With the removal of a lot of lower division teams the "division" factor was also removed so buildings and wages wont be cheaper further down the divisions, this further equalises all the clubs.

3) Some of the top players have a "star" rating that is used by the system to calculate a more real-life like tribunal value but this takes a lot of manual work on my part to maintain and is now woefully out of date on most players. The only thing the star rating effects is tribunal values. I have now removed this feature because it is too cumbersome to maintain. So some tribvals have reduced as a result and the current system now uses £10m for CR99 £6m for CR97 £4m for CR95 and £2m for CR94. age29s get a 50% reduction and over29s are valued at zero. ( although CR94s still need adjusting which I'll get to next week ).

4) There will be at least 3 cup competitions in each league next season. The usual FA Cup equivalent and the Super Cup equivalent and a newer League Cup competition. I trialled this in England last year and it was popular so i'm now expanding it to each league.

Outside England...

FA Cups will start at round 3 with 16 clubs and go to q-final, semi-final and final.

League Cups will start at q-final with 8 clubs and go to semi-final and final. They will be run on the same weeks as the FA Cups and include any teams eliminated from their FA Cup in Round 3.

Super Cup is FA Cup winner or FA Cup runner-up against League Champion and is played in week 1.

In England...

FA Cup will start at round 1 with 64 clubs and go to round 2, round 3, q-final, semi-final and final.

League Cup will start at round 2 with 32 clubs and go to semi-final and final. They will be run on the same weeks as the FA Cup and include any teams eliminated from the FA Cup in Round 1.

FA VASE Cup will start at round 3 with 16 clubs and goto to q-final, semi-final and final. They will be run on the same weeks as the FA Cup and include any teams eliminated from the League Cup in Round 2.

MILK Cup will start at q-final with 8 clubs and goto to semi-final and final. They will be run on the same weeks as the FA Cup and include any teams eliminated from the FA VASE Cup in Round 3.

Super Cup is FA Cup winner or FA Cup runner-up against League Champion and is played in week 1.

oh yeah nearly forgot

5) I have removed the EU indicator from all countries so we no longer need to worry about limiting overseas players. So the limit has changed from 7 max overseas to any number of overseas players. This also helps to "equalise" all clubs.
