The Championship Managers League. For those of you who don't know what this is: it's basically an ODB version of the Dream Team League that Mark is running with less restrictions.

On the previous forum the 2.0 reborn version was hosted by AMC and I'm now taking over from him in a 3.0 version.

The setup will be mostly the same so:

-3.68 version of the game with the Luessenhoff 3.60 update (more info on that database here)
-A draft of 22 rounds to pick the initial squads.
-A haggle winter transfer round where you can only buy/sell/loan players between eachother.
-A full summer transfer round where CPU can buy back your players and where you can acquire new players with the funds you've collected. You can also do deals with eachother after the selling and buying from CPU has been done.

To this I will add the following new rules:

-NO wibwobbed tactics allowed to make it a fair playing field.
-No strike and resign system. If you can't be bothered to submit in time then you will be managed on holiday by your assistant. People that are AWOL after the season will be removed and replaced.


So if you're interested then let me know down in the comments and fill in this little form to create your team:

@Kaneman
@Mark

I made a slight change in the database we're going to use. It will be ODB, but it will be Luessenhoff's edited ODB which he spend over 10 years on perfecting and making it much more realistic. I hope that won't throw you off the format.

(Thanks AMC for pointing it out to me :) )

The site's only been active the last couple of days :D

I'm sure GFRay will be about soon to confirm what is happening with this.

Don't think I've seen GFRay since we launched. Let's give him a chance to come back and let us know if he is still happy to be a mod. If not, I'll have to see if anyone else can run it for us.

I have indeed been online already, but didn't had the chance so far to comment on this.

As much as I would like to commit to this, I simply can't at the moment. I lost my old job this summer and will be starting a new one next week. That will take up all my attention and energy I fear so committing to this doesn't look like a good choice at the moment. Especially given how things went in the past for me in this regard.

I hope you can find someone else to take over.

Cheers
