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 …

    1) We will be having 2 league of 10 teams

    Premier League will consist of

    Aston Villa
    Manchester City
    Manchester United
    West Ham

    Championship will consist of


    (Rosters posted tomorrow)

    2) We will have Training Camps which is like the academy but will consist of different ab increase different age range and different price.

    3) If you select your captain for the season then that player will get 250abs put on his abs.

    4) Reaction from the press on your news threads for you to answer questions on.

    5) We want too have an ATM but we are not sure of the name yet as we want to have a different name.

    6) Finance will be low

    What do you think?

    All the same
    Worse teams have more
    Better teams have more

    7) We will have Europe but have it start in the second season.

    Not sure if we will have caretakers or something different but Europe will go ahead.

    Cool 3 missing teamsheets is a sacking.

    9) No scouting but there will be auctions

    10) Season Objectives which can lead to money if you achieve them and there will be three if you do not get 1 out of them 3 then you will be sacked.

    11) You will be allowed to appoint a member as your assistant manager, this can be good for a new manager to ESMS to get experience before going to a team

    Anything else you want too bring up and anything you would like too add or say about the above please do below

    It will be appreciated

    you shouldn't have prem teams in there i feel this may spoil the game a bit?

    Post on Sun Jun 20, 2010 2:58 pm  1pswich

    We have the rosters for them!

    Post on Sun Jun 20, 2010 3:00 pm  Keeble

    OK! calm down LOL so how're are teams going out? draw or apps

    Post on Sun Jun 20, 2010 3:02 pm  Keeble

    when will this be done because this could be a long process

    Post on Sun Jun 20, 2010 3:03 pm  1pswich

    With rosters being posted tommorow I could see applications and jobs being posted to be honest. We really need views on finance though!

    Post on Sun Jun 20, 2010 3:04 pm  Keeble

    Ok make a thread about it? ill add my idea to it mate

    Post on Sun Jun 20, 2010 3:05 pm  1pswich

    Post it in here. Thats what this forum is for. Very Happy

    Post on Sun Jun 20, 2010 3:07 pm  Keeble

    I feeel prem clubs should have around 10-20M and Champ around 5-10M??

    Post on Sun Jun 20, 2010 3:35 pm  Mossy500

    If your actually gonna go through with this and start the site up again, Dont open it till its actually ready!!, Last time you done it you opened it when you werent ready too and it all went pear shaped, You have too keep your ideas different to TDE and be independant, Also if anyone fucks about then you have too deal with it as you are the admins. I dont think im gonna apply straight away because i wanna see how it goes.

    But if you need any help at any point i would be willing too help.

    Post on Sun Jun 20, 2010 3:38 pm  1pswich

    We need writers! lol,

    Btw the writers will be very important as they will help me with asking the questions for people's news threads, and from those news threads could lead to BTM Sports News stories, like for example if you said something about buying a new midfielder at Arsenal and I asked is Fabregas leaving that may turn into a whole story depending on what you say. So all these little ideas that other sites do not have!

    Post on Sun Jun 20, 2010 5:27 pm  Guest

    we apply by pm dont we and like i always say i would help just to get the site working.but since we left school im gonna be with a different girl everyday so i might not be active on here but i will be active with them Wink

    Post on Wed Jun 23, 2010 1:51 pm  lewney1

    My ideas:

    Manager of the Month
    Team of the Month
    Player of the Month
    aswell as yearly awards

    Prem get 30mil and Championship get 10mil

    Lower age to 17-21
    More Ab Gains
    More Expensive
    Keep The Name

    Transfer updates:
    Once a week, keep that day dont be changing it

    15 Rated Goalkeepers
    10 Rated outfield players
    Or if age over 35 any rating
    And a different name

    Next Season:
    Bring in new teams, add Championsleague, Scouting, Call Ups, Auctions

    BTM Fantasy football league on www.premierleague.com
    Aswell as a Texaco one
    Have a sweepstake for any tournaments

    Do you remember my idea last time, when we had 20 players and whenever your team is knocked out of the F.A Cup you recieve a player for free depending on when u get knocked out of tournament

    Post on Wed Jun 23, 2010 1:59 pm  standupspeakup

    dont agree with number 10 one bit, ESMS is a dying game and really its hard to get interest already you need people to stay to keep the games alive and that number 10 will stop it

    Post on Wed Jun 23, 2010 4:51 pm  Adam193

    Yeah we was thinking about sacking or not sacking but wasent sure but if we have more people say no sacking then I dont mind it was just an idea

    Post on Sat Jun 26, 2010 7:51 am  Todd Fortune

    number 9 is no you need a auction i reckon
