    CW XI - Football

    A couple of us are looking into the possibility of starting up a CW XI for football providing there is interest...

    It will be run pretty much the same as CW XI cricket, with a domestic competition and the national team taking other nations in friendlies and international tournaments..

    What would the reaction to something like this be??

    We've seen how well it can work with the XI; we've also seen how it can fail to work with numerous FM games. Which sims/etc would you use?

    Well i have been told by a couple of people that ESMS or ESMS+ are the best out there..

    As for the failing problem i think that is more due to the people running it losing interest...
    I feel if i got a group of people dedicated to helping run it, like CW XI then it would work well

    I'd be very keen.

    EDIT: I'd also be keen to help out with the running of it.

        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    Allow players to pick 5 qualities they think they are best at, so that the assigning of skills isn't completely random.
