    We're going with the official World Cup squads mate so that won't be possible. JayFlo brought it up yesterday and I really liked the idea of making this as realistic as I can.

    Did the squads already last night and going to post the save game tonight!

    Dear Mr. JayFlo,

    Thank you for your application for the job of Manager of Spain.

    Unfortunately we're currently not looking for a manager as we're very satisfied with our current manager Dermotron. Also your history at our archrivals Portugal makes you ineligible to manage our country. You would simply be lynched by our fans at the moment we present you which would leave us without a manager.

    With the dearest of regards,

    GFRay.

    Dear JayFlo (if, indeed, that is your real name),

    Many thanks for the handwritten note that you submitted for the vacant Spanish job.

    Unfortunately we have a number of criteria that all the candidates have to meet before offering them the chance of an interview. Top of the list is the ability to spell. Being able to use a pen/ e-mail and not an orange crayon (surely you should be applying for the Dutch position?) is also a big bonus. We would also like our candidates to show some sort of traceable history in football management. I had a quick check with our database and the only Flo we could find was a 6ft 4" beanpole ex professional from Norway. We assumed, probably correctly, that this wasn't you.

    Many thanks anyway for applying and we wish you every success in whatever career your future takes you though we suspect it won't be football or creative writing.

    Regards,

    Luis Rubiales

    President
    Spanish Football Federation

    P.S

    The attached bar of chocolate would have been a nice touch if it hadn't had melted and didn't contained nuts. Jose from the mail department thanks you for his hospital stay due to his allergy.

    P.P.S

    Do not, under any circumstances, contact us again.

    Alright let's get this show on the road shall we?


    I've made a save game, added you all in as managers for your drawn nations and selected your squads to mimic the world cup squads IRL. You can download the save game HERE.

    Please take note that the save is made on the Saturn v5 patch so you will need that one installed to load it. You can find a handy tutorial I made on how to install Saturn's patches here.


    Now you will need submit a tactic and lineup for the first group match and you need to send it to me by PM to keep the other managers in the dark.

    The first group matches in the World Cup IRL are played from tomorrow until the 19th of June so the deadline to send me you tactic and lineup is Tuesday 19th June 8 pm UK time. I will send a pm on the deadline day itself to those who haven't send anything as a reminder.

    Should you still miss the deadline then you will go on holiday for the match with your assistant manager picking the tactic and lineup. You will also receive a strike and after three strikes you'll be resigned from the game.


    There are three rules in regards to the tactic submission:

    1. Your tactic must be non-wibwob.
    2. Your tactic must have at least 3 defenders.
    3. Your tactic must have wide players somewhere on the pitch (DL/DR, DML/DMR, ML/MR, AML/AMR or FL/FR).


    On the 19th of June I will play the games manually to avoid that the assistant manager will mess up your tactic/lineup. The only subs I will make are when injuries or sending offs occur. I will post the results of all the first group matches later that night.


    So start working on your tactics and lineups and don't forget to send them to me by PM!


    Best of luck to all competitors and may the best man win!

    I've got Albiol in the squad instead of Pique. Other than that it is spot on

    Giving it a go now, Russia win 5-0 in the first match, Argentina have no defence, official.

    Can I play 4 forwards, 6 midfielders and a goalie?
