Over the past few day's and week, myself and Adam have been discussing the future of Be the Manager as a forum, last season we unfortunalty saw very low activity which of course was of huge dissapointment to those who have worked so hard to make Be the Manager a success, we saw low transfer market activites all round, and also low posting from the majority of members with a few minority working …

Changes to Be the Manager in FULL

- New skin (Background) The most obvious of the new changes and something which may take some time to get used to. The light blue adds a bit more light and colour to the site while the layout changes with the main body of the post being to the left hand side while the member is on the right hand side. However we think it looks better like this and already …

    BTM wants to really be a new sort of game and for that we need new ideas so what do you think would be some good ideas for the site?

    I would suggest the site being a bit brighter seems a bit dull at the mo Wink

    I have a new skin that I want to upload however only the creator of the side can add it and thats Adam so we will have to wait for him to come online.

    Ok mate (: and make sure all transfers and stuff are realistic otherwise it will get stupid!

    Post on Sun Jun 20, 2010 5:55 am  1pswich

    Yeah lower budgets to promote more realistic fee's

    A League Cup.

    Say if theres 10 teams in a division, put 5 in 1 group, then 5 in a another group.
    Example below

    Group 1

    Man Utd
    Man City

    Group 2

    Aston Villa

    Then you play each other once and the winner of each group play in a final or something?

    i dont care how it goes i just like to play the game lol

    Post on Sun Jun 20, 2010 8:16 am  Keeble

    Yeah good idea dean

    Post on Sun Jun 20, 2010 11:14 am  1pswich

    What would you prefer out of the following:

    1) 16 Teams in one division

    2) Two Leagues of 10 teams, which would have a few caretaker managers until we become an established site and we can start asking more to join

    3) Two leagues of 8 teams.

    4) 10 teams in one division

    5) Something Else, please state below.

    My personal opinion is number two I really don't like having just the one division and I think option 3 doesn't have enough teams.

    Post on Sun Jun 20, 2010 11:31 am  Deano30

    1 Division 10 Teams

    Post on Sun Jun 20, 2010 11:35 am  Adam193

    Yeah im the same mate

    I dont think I would choose number three even if it got alot of people like it because it does not have many teams

    16 teams could work but we would have no relegation and promotion and that would eliminate the fun for the people low in the league with nothing too fight for

    I would rather number two but if people really disagreed with that then number four would be my next one

    Post on Sun Jun 20, 2010 12:07 pm  Keeble

    Number 2 straight up do it Wink

    Post on Sun Jun 20, 2010 12:41 pm  JagsSingh

    I'm for this one boys Wink

    2) Two Leagues of 10 teams, which would have a few caretaker managers until we become an established site and we can start asking more to join

    Post on Sun Jun 20, 2010 1:08 pm  Guest

    2 leagues of 10 u have done and failed twice so thats out end of. im for 1 league 10 teams but what about relegation and promotion its no fun to play for nuttin if u get me
