Season 30

Well I never thought I'd get to 30 season's!

Thank you to all of you for playing - hopefully I can get on with my proposed changes and get some new managers involved to bulk it up a bit.

I know some have suggested I should cut down the number teams but that's not as easy as it may seem. The whole game structure has been built up over time with all the data and requirements for what is there (promotions/relegations/cups) so stripping things out will cause more issues than if I were to add teams - although that is obviously not worth doing at the moment. Years ago, I actually had a plan for 20 countries - including some none European ones and a World championship cup on top of the European cup! My lack of progress with the game tempered those plans though.

I also don't want to go down the route of letting managers have more than 2 teams as I feel that dilutes the game in other ways. 2, in different countries, is enough.

I did think of changing the Romanian league to be another country - I used to have lots of managers from there but they have dropped off. I'm not sure what country though so I have left it for now.

Hopefully my mobile friendly new design will get some new managers involved, seeing as most people access the Internet from mobile devices these days.

I'm also toying with the idea of automating the games running and then increasing the system to have a match day every couple of days.

Just so you know I still have plans........... player contracts are still in the pipeline as well, I just thought the mobile site should be a priority.

Anyway, I have made a slight tweak to the manager information pages which should now show achievements at previous clubs (if you have them) and also to finances for this season as the balance of money has gone a bit wrong.

Oh and you don't need to fill your youth academies up on week 1 of every season as some of you seem to do.......
