    I love forcing up the price on players I have no intention of buying.

    Edit: haha, I just cost that guy an extra 15k or so. OK, I'll stop now.

    I'm bidding on the first one, but there's not a great deal of difference between the players yet one is 7 times more expensive

    Yea not a big difference, but a significant one, about 10 training sessions or so, equivalent to one guy being respectable-feeble and one being competent-woeful with the secondaries being the same. Also you could put the second guy straight into a team, the first one would do naff all with that stamina and concentration.

    yes, they got reset in England by accident last weekend (so did morale) and they can't recover the previous ones so we just have to deal with it - but it has had quite a big effect on attendance, sponsorship and performance

    actually it is pretty annoying - i was on over the moon before and had played something like 3 consecutive away league matches - then it gets reset the week i finally have a home game and i consequently don't sell out. That and i only got 5 new members compared to previously getting 17 each time
