It's not my job to check the oppositions squad numbers before selling, that's his responsibility. Having said that, we never agreed to a 45 cap, it was discussed and forgotten. The last official confirmation of squad caps was in October, clearly ststing it was 50. I assume everyone got this message so why did nobody mention it then?

It's everyone's duty to abide by the rules.

On one hand, you're threatening  to leave the game, whilst urgently selling some of your best players to unmanaged clubs. You're also selling some players for cash to unmanaged clubs, when been offered deals by managed clubs for the same player, after calling for managed clubs to make bids on your players.

You've sold your best player (arguably) to a managed club for a worse deal than was originally accepted by you, after the other manager cancelled the deal in favour of submitting the worse deal, which you then accepted.

You've sold your goalkeeper for a deal to a managed club (same club as you sold your best player to - who has a history of collusion), for a dubious deal which no-one would make if staying on to play the game.

On the other hand, you're challenging the game world owner about the rules that he has implemented, and told you so, all whilst you are performing the above.

You're clearly upset, but things just don't add up here..

Thank's for taking the time to reply.

You are right, it is everyone's responsibility so perhaps I am liable here and should have checked the squad size. If I had then I would  Still have still done the deal though, he was under the 50 man limit.

I am leaving the world, the lack of in game interation and trading done it for me. I listed every player, I posted messages encouraging trades and I sent out private enquires. You were certainly one of those I contacted on several occasions and not once did you respond, in fact only 2 managers bothered responding originally followed by a few others when it was clear they might get a "favourable deal".

You made a bid for Neymar, cash plus Coric.....which I had decency to counter, again you did not respond with any counter. You wouldn't have mentioned this had I accepted your original bid.

Originally I was selling all my players to externals because King Luis, who was the only person actively trading the world would have missed out on any further deals due to his 3 he had done with the club already this season, he gave up some very good players by the way. I did inform Liam via PM that this was my plan.

Every player was open to leave to any club, every offer was countered so every manager had a chance to trade for my players. Those that  have a history of trading and getting things over the line ended up with players they wanted, thats normal. Your bid of Coric plus cash simply was not going to get it over the line.

We're already well into the squad cap being set at 45. Has been 45 for at least a couple of seasons already. Teams still actively bidding on players, when already over 45, even in the midst of all this!  :duh  :missus  :rollseyes

Just seen your announcement on SM, Liam, fair play. Would also be fair play for teams, still over the squad cap, to bring the squad number down to within limits before bidding on players, and cancel current active bids. Seems fair

You're literally the only one who thought the cap was 45. Even Liam said that he thought the cap was 50 until someone messaged him "reminding" him that the cap was actually 45 (I assume that was you). There was even a gameworld announcement just 3 months ago reminding everyone that the cap is 50, so I have no idea how you can possibly sit there claiming that the cap "has been 45 for at least a couple of seasons already".

I'm happy to bring my squad down to 45. I've already sold three cracking talents in Sangare, Almendra & Chong, all of whom I'd have happily kept, and have placed more players on the transfer list. But I'm not going to remove my bids on those other players just because you suddenly decided that the cap was 45. Especially when the only reason those players are even at externals is because RK7 wanted them to end up at a team like mine instead of yours. You offer absolutely nothing to this gameworld - you never trade, you never interact with anyone and you never post in here unless it's to slag someone off (who could forget that epic "uncle fucker" quip :lmao). If any of those players end up at AEK (I only have enough cash for one of them), at least everyone else knows that they'll have the chance to trade for them in the future, if they give me a fair offer. Whereas if they end up at Chelsea, they're off the market for good. For that reason, I hope you don't end up signing any of them.

My tuppence worth. I've been under 45 for awhile in preparation for the change, but the cap was never finalised in game. It was discussed on here and almost everyone agreed, but there was never an official gameworld announcement. And since we have a bunch of managers in this world who aren't even on RAWK now, you need that in-game announcement to confirm these things. So there's no way we should be punishing guys who didn't know about this. I'm sure everyone will get down to cap as soon as they are able to.

Because you can't just change the rules from one second to the next and expect everyone to immediately fall into line. I was above 45 because of your gameworld announcement, and now you want to punish me for it?

Why are you still trying to stir things up? I've PMed Liam and we've sorted it out. I'll get my squad down to 45 but you can't just lower the cap from one day to the next.

Zakaria is on the transfer list, if anyone wants him for cash then bid away. Good player. And I'll be selling Ovelar when his TB expires in three days, which will bring me down to 45.

Looking forward to Bale and Dybala getting lots of goals . Had to sacrifice Skriniar as Lyon are abundant in young Dms and defenders . Also the midfield is abundant with 93 + players too its the attacking where Lyon are shy.

Thanks mate and I've always liked this GW more than the other one .

Think it's a good time to let go. 7 years is impressive to say the least! Liam's Madrid going out as the final title winners is fitting.

And I do apologise for Dam and I going off at each other. It was all very silly.
