    I'll be selling Spencer in a couple of weeks if anyone is interested. I strongly suspect his stamina is high mediocre, so he should have competent stamina by the time I come to list him.
    How much are you hoping to get for him?

    I've just shelled out £1M on a Strong/Mediocre defensive spinner -- Feeble stamina and fielding, plus he's 26 years old. Above market value? Perhaps, but he should hit Resp consistency without too much training. Decided I needed a second spinner for FC matches.

    Little bit below market value if anything, with competent stamina I'd hope to get not far off £2m. I should get £1m for Tynan if I decide to sell him.

    Are there usually this many problems at the beginning of a new season, or is it because of the introduction of FC? I got put in a new league today, but now it's gone back to how things were at the end of last season, with me at the top of my Div VI league.

    Yeah, signs don't look good for FC.

    Osman to superb batting the only pop. Listed for a fairly modest 3.8m. Whitehorne's form and BTR dropping like a stone, feeble bowling and proficient batting form.

    and nets


    Disley: 1x field, 1 x bat
    Fanyana: 1x bat, 1x keep, 1x stam
    Giles: 1x bowl
    Schofield: 1xbat, 1xbowl, 1xfield
    Tucker: 1xbat

    What to do?

  7. #802
    Hmm your PFLs are getting killed and it'll only get worse if FC actually works, I'd switch Disley's fielding net to a stamina net and give it to Schofield or whoever. I'd be flexible with who gets Fanyana's stamina net too. Basically you need to get those staminas up as quickly and painlessly as possible. Schofield is already very low on PFL so it doesn't matter if your hurt his PFL even more with a stamina net.

    Yeah, was going to suggest changing Disley's fielding net and Fanyana's stamina net to stamina nets for Schofield and Giles. Schofield is a lost cause as far as playing him in matches this season is concerned, may as get his stamina up high enough to enable him to survive on 2-3 nets next season.

    QF against the team that knocked me out last season:

    Asterix XI won the toss and elected to field.
    Pitch: Flat

    End of Over 7: 75-1, runrate=10.71, reqrunrate=7.46 (171-4)
    Qaba 2-0-25-0
    Ashton* 41 (20 balls)
    Cuss 33 (18 balls)
    Last Wicket: Watkins c. Blackman b. Stanford 1 (FOW: 12/1)

    Watkins out for the first time in his BT20 career, but Ashton and Cuss gunning it so far.

    Meh Ashton out, need a bit of luck to win now.

    Wages are looking a tad grim, and I'm going to have to possibly look at expanding the stadium to bring in some extra revenue. Does anyone have the formula for ground size according to membership?

    Akhtar £654 >£2054
    Bewers £8488 >£12,703
    Carlton £2853 >£3,349
    Jeffery £6,231 >£6,547
    Greening £14988 >£25,799
    Noon £6709 >£13,509
    Staveley £7714 >£11,655
    Wilde £2709 >£6,356
    Total Wages: £63,940 >£95,268

    Which all means that I'm losing around £150K per week, before gate receipts.

    Got knocked out of the BT20 at the 6th Round stage Today, against a team I could and should have beaten, but my ratings are starting to take a pounding. Will almost certainly rest everyone important for the 1st round cup game, so we'll look again at fitness once the FC and OD fixtures are up.

    One Pop Today:

    Joe Noon (444923)
    RH Batsman, RM Bowler, superb batting form, strong bowling form, energetic
    A steady player with respectable leadership skills and mediocre experience.
    Plays For: Cymru Gurgitaters
    Nationality: England
    Age: 23 Years Old
    Battrick Rating: 59,634 (+2730)
    Wages: £13,509 p/w
    Stamina: respectable Wicket Keeping: *quality*
    Batting: superb Concentration: exceptional
    Bowling: worthless Consistency: respectable
    Fielding: worthless

    Excited yet nervous about the up-coming campaign!

    Later, Trev

    More to do with the morale/team fitness reset than anything else.

    Had a good over (21 runs) following Ashton's dismissal, should win from here.

    End of Over 16: 144-2, runrate=9.00, reqrunrate=7.00 (171-4)
    Heelam 3-0-36-0
    Osman* 24 (24 balls)
    Cuss 71 (44 balls)
    Last Wicket: Ashton c. Bryant b. Douglas 44 (FOW: 82/2)

    And the next over inexplicably goes for two runs, wtf.

    Edit: won with one ball to spare, Cuss 85*, Osman 41*.

    That wont update until the next finance update. You have to add it up yourself

    My FC league is up, and ive already played a match. Sure, i cant see it, but i know ive had a draw, and my players took a hit on PFL. Good times.
