I will be getting back to soccer soon now that the baseball season is in full swing.
What ideas/concepts would you like to see added to the simulator for next season?
---insert usual caveat here that Al will not use everyone's ideas but will pick and choose and likely use about 5% of the ideas generated---

|In no particular order and with no particular conviction for any one.... pure brain dump:

Just put in those tactical formula changes agreed on last season, and I'll be happy. Promise. :-)
Cheerleaders would be nice.
Speaking as a small "international" nation, clubs frequently refuse to release their "international" players when we have an international. No friggin' way I'm lettin' mine off, either! ;-)

|Taking Graham's in order|

|I can see both sides of the nationality suggestion. It would be nice to see the nationality be more than just a commentary feature, but if particular players are likely to be unavailable then you will quickly see nearly all players have the same nationality.|
One feature I would like to see introduced would be the unavailability of the ten top-rated players due to play against Barnsley. That could be reduced to, say, five if the team involved is in the lower half of Division Two, of course. The rest is just detail.
Having played a season in SESL with the new tactical arrangements, I can't say I thought it was an improvement, but then I always seem to have weak teams so it makes little difference to me. Even so, playing N all the time is a bit boring, especially as so many others do as well, so it all comes down to who has the most SL. Other tactics may give marginal improvements, but not enough to offset the loss of OFF caused by switching from N.

|About the possibility of having some 0/10's floating about: I'd be concerned about eventually creating "superplayers" with SL 30-40 again. This was something that the league had to address several years ago, as it really became an impediment to the game. I don't mean to be an obstacle, but we should be careful about creating a situation that we just had to correct.|

Agree with that completely. Always keep in mind that the calculations were originally based on teams only having 4 or so players as high as 25SL. Shooting tables are a prime example. Not necessarily a problem if the calculations become relative rather than fixed.

|Sheesh. That's twice in two days across two leagues where T.G. and I agreed with each other. |
I'm sending Clyde out to buy some lottery tickets!
