League Format

After mine and Adams recent discussions about the game we will would like to offer you the chance to vote on the most popular option for season two amongst the two of us.

This would see the Premiership become larger and would contain the most active teams in and should cater for everyone. The negatives would be this does not cater for new members joining the site. Please let us know what you think.

Any questions below please!

While the match simmer is away we will be appointing a new moderator to make sure that nothing bad happens so they can be on hand to help out if any new members arrive. The admin team decided to appoint

Deano30, who has accepted his role of becoming a temporary moderator at Be the Manager we thank him greatly for this and hope you will congratulate him as well.

Do you believe we need one?,

On it we would have:

All the latest news from both the game and the running of the game
Place where all the rosters and finances are kept

So it would really be a general hub of the site, where you can find resources. I can make one in a few days if we believe it would be used, so what do you think?

Round 2 will be run on Saturday with build-ups going up on Thursday. The games would have been tomorrow but we have had a few problems with the rosters and with no rosters up and no build ups its a little short notice.

The problem is nothing to worry about its just a few minor errors most new websites start of with.

Sorry for any inconvenience!

Foreign Players

Right this is the thing. I have allowed a few real life transfers too go through E.G. M_Chamakh has gone to Arsenal not as many of you have noticed. I have thought this through the last few days and feel that some of the teams wil be hard done by if they buy players in this window and dont get them so I will give you 3 choices and the one that wins I will do.

Number One:

Do what was planned that the players that join the premiership in real life after sunday midnight will be auctioned at the end of the BTM season in september when the real life window shuts.

Now this is important so please read

I am now updating rosters for the season. The rosters will consist of new players from abroad up until sunday so for example M_Chamakh is in Arsenal's roster after sunday midnight any foreign players signed will be auctioned probably at the start of season two when the rl transfer window shut. Also any players move premiership to premiership after sunday will not be moved and will stay at there clubs.

After rosters are up you can have a little look and then ask for players too get upgraded or downgraded only from your own side though!.

Some players are moving from premier league to premier league clubs in real life

Example

B_Foster from Man U to Birmingham

So I will set a date of midnight onSunday 27th June for them too move about in real life and they will be changed anyone who moves in rl after that date will not be changed

Then probably at the end of the season we will have an auction of all foreign players coming into the premier league

Any problems do not hesitate too ask

Thanks
