I’m in, BUT!!!
Can we have a “trial run” first - e.g. to find out how “often” would work, what PC overhead is for Jes / Adrock, whether connection speed is a factor (mine is utter shit in new place), what “automation” from our staff we would be happy with, what leagues we would want to run and also could run (processing time etc again) and to generally figure out WTF is going on as well as what the capabilities and also limitations of the multi-player game is / are (e.g. don’t forward until ALL have pressed forward).
My leagues would be ALL scandavia (cheap great players to be had) Brazil, Argentina, Ger, Fra, Holl, Bel, Serbia, bosnia, other balkan one who’s name escapes me, Ukraine, Russia, China (lots of talent went there), USA, Mexico at viewable (i.e. scoutable), English League (inc Premiership) playable. If there’s an option to set International / Regional competitions as “scoutable” (e.g. Africa Cup of Nations, CONCAF, South American version of Euro Cup etc.) then I’d like that too - again, great place to unearth talent. As below, I would like to go and have a look at my saved game in FM18 (and likely fm17) to see where may be relevant to find talent
As for choosing a starting club, I absolutely recommend english Premier Division - TV rights WILL kick in hard at 2018 season, so enabling us to get out of debt but also attract high end talent due to huge influx of monies. I suggest NOT having a club in any kind of euro competition as the ££ income will be a slight advantage.
My choice - Everton or Southampton. I may change my mind in a wee while!
Hope taht makes sense!
EDIT:- Spain, Portugal, Italy, poland, turkey, croatia, czech. MAYBE Uruguay, Chile, paraguay
