    Important note for newcomers, unless you have a forced change because someone is hurt bad enough they can’t play or they are suspended due to card, I can’t make changes to away squads, only home.

    So if you decide to make a change at some point, or have someone returning from injury/suspension, it’s possible that won’t occur as soon as they are available but the next home match

    No changes that aren’t due to suspension/injury until after the 10th league match unless it sticks with the same starting XI formula of 2/2/2/2/2/wildcard.

    Some leniency after that and with injuries/suspensions.

    This is for league, for the cup/UCL, I’m pretty lenient

    So here’s the breakdown on our clubs:

    EPL - 3
    Championship - 2
    Ligue 1 - 2
    Bundesliga - 3
    Serie A - 2
    Eredivisie - 1
    Primeira Liga - 1
    (ROW) South African Premier League - 1
    LaLiga - 2
    Allsvenskan - 1
    MLS - 2

    So to fill out the UCL, I’m filling in 12 cpu clubs from different leagues and just using current standings to determine clubs.

    These clubs have no one selected from them so putting them in as is.
    Austrian Bundesliga - LASK
    Pro League - Club Brugge
    Superligaen - FC Midtjylland
    Greece Super League - Olympiacos
    Switzerland Super League - St. Gallen
    Turkey Super Lig - Trabzonspor
    Ukraine Premier League - Shakhtar Donetsk

    I’ll fill in rosters on a few from bigger leagues as well
    Ligue 1 - PSG
    German Bundesliga - RB Leipzig
    Serie A - Juventus
    Primeira Liga - FC Porto
    LaLiga - Sevilla

    League is set up.

    Just set up FA Cup and what I did was put each of us in place of EPL clubs then went and added them back in place of lower clubs.

    It went ahead and simmed the first couple rounds since none of us were in.

    Some highlights:

    Round 1
    Arsenal 0-4 Bournemouth

    Round 2
    Brighton 2-1 Aston Villa

    Round 3 Matches (featuring users)
    Fulham vs Lyon
    Nottingham Forest vs Dortmund
    Manchester United vs Bournemouth
    Middlesbrough vs DC United
    Reading vs Stoke City
    Bordeaux vs Bristol Rovers
    Leeds United vs Tottenham
    Ajax vs Burnley
    Real Madrid vs Bremen
    Inter vs Kaizer Chiefs
    Atlanta United vs West Brom
    Manchester City vs Benfica
    Sunderland vs Göteborg
    Barcelona vs Bristol City
    Milan vs Wolves
    Bayern vs Sheffield Wednesday

    Guys, because of how they’re doing the sim, I won’t be able to give the minute of everything if too much happens in one match.
    Takes a bit of the excitement out too waiting to see if we get a late goal.
