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

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 …

    Next Season

    Post  Deano30 on Tue Sep 28, 2010 6:08 pm

    Before you start next season, I think it would be wise to have a proper discussion on what to do with ths ite and the layout. As you can tell from Match reports there are alod of missing sheets which is a bad sign. Maybe its best to just have 1 League next season with 12 comitted managers. There also seems to be a little lack of builds and match reports. I have a soultion to this, As of next season, If still up and running I would like to be made a writer. I would do Build ups for each game and a special match report after every game.

    This maybe is in the wrong section but anyways I would like to see other peoples opinions on this.

    I cant do it either as James has them on his computer not on the system.

    Anyway back to the topic

    Me and James have spoken about next season and how we are going to do things basically what we are thinking is 10-16 teams in one league (depending on how many members) you will keep the same teams that your at now you will just move into one league.

    In terms of activity on the site there is nothing in terms of match reactions, game news, transfers and well I would like to see these things come from you as members as I enjoyed doing the games at the start but now I find it a little boring as not many members do any writing on the site (I know you all have lives and you may not want to do buildups or news articles but it would be a help if you did. Even if you just did the amount Kelsey did its a start.)

    On the matter with Dean and the writing I'm guessing mate you mean that you do not want to be a manager but you will do articles? That would be alright its just if your going to take up that role then it will be expected to be done. You know it would not be a lot either. Just the build ups to games and maybe a news article every week or so which could include interviews with members to get them involved. That would be a great help if you could do it Dean but we would need you committed to it.

    I knew the first season was always going to be hard and stressful but if we get through this guys then next season could be good for us all to join in and be more active guys.

    Can EVERYBODY PLEASE comment there opinions on what I have just said above

    Thanks!

    This all sounds great and stuff, and I mean I would rather do build ups etc then be a manager. I could also do match reports and yeah interviews with managers and stuff, this is something i'd like to do
