    Do people have an interest in me adding in any cup competitions like I did last time? It's pretty easy to set those up so if there's interest it's no issue. I enjoyed it but will let the masses decide

    Ok I'm setting everything up now. Frustrated as there is no option to change the calendar so 2 matches per week from August - December instead of regular schedule August - May. I'll adjust when I plan to do cups accordingly. It'll be between same matchdays

    Important note for newcomers, these have to be set up as a custom tournament so no way to run the league and cups together, they have to be run separately to fatigue won't be affected by cups.

    Same goes for cards (normally league cups would be affected by reds) and injuries so you could lose someone for the season but still be healthy for cups so cups won't be as affected with need for changes.
    If you want to play some different guys/run a different formation in cups anyway I am fine with that

    I'm going to pretend that they're running concurrently. When my CAM that has a torn ACL after the 3rd fixture shows up in the cup the following week, I'll happily roll with it.

    Well EA changed so you can only save a maximum of 3 "tournaments" on FIFA 17 so I have to scale it back a bit. Disappointing but it'll be League, FA Cup and Champions League. No additional "League Cup"

    Updated schedule to reflect this change. While I'm disappointed it's less "busy" looking and might go nicely this way.

    Ok I'm starting now
