    While I am by no means in charge, I would say that surely the answer to that has to be no.

    Absolutely not. Under no circumstances should anybody ever go over the agreed limit of 25 players!

    There's no guarantee that you'll even get bids for your players before the new season starts.

    Just looking for loopholes

    I've got 2 guys retiring, I just don't know what day they'll actually go, so I have to wait to bring in their replacements. Not looking to buy more with no guarantee of selling

    I believe that you will get whatever cash value he is?

    No, 27 players in his squad.

    23 in the main squad and 4 in his youth squad.

    I'm sure he will sell a couple quickly but not much point in him asking about the rules and then intentionally breaking them anyway.

    Sorry, was busy all day so I just went in and checked now and I've had 2 in and 2 out so I'm at 25? Did the ins go through before the outs? If so it must have been a matter of hours..... I made sure I accepted the transfer bids for the players leaving before I confirmed the bids for the guys coming in.... and I brought all my guys up from my youth team so I'd make sure not to forget about them

    I have applied for this chaps, hope to get involved..

    Played the game many a time but always get annoyed at how i can be playing say Luton Town and they have Messi playing for them ! (That has happened on me in the past)

    Will take a good gander over the rules if i get accepted for the Div 5 club i have applied for.

    Yes to both.

    The only players that you can't buy are the ones that are at unmanaged clubs within the 5 divisions (Juventus, Corinthians etc.).

    Just had a proper look through my squad and this is going to be some tough slog. I am 7m in the red yet all my players are mid thirties so have no resale value and yet are on massive contracts! I'm like Leeds circa early 2000's...

    Had a look at the loan market and there were only 2 players on it that weren't going to improve my squad whatsoever.

    It is my first season so we'll just see how we get on...

    Considered quitting over the off season as this world hasn't really grabbed my attention like our previous ones have.
    Stuck it out though.

    I think the key thing for new managers is to not ever leave yourself with only 21 players. This is the minimum allowed, so several managers in the past have been in the situation of being unable to sell and (if they are in debt) unable to buy. Wheeling and dealing is the key. Also, signing big name players is fine...but they will have big wages to match.

    I must admit I am surprised. The economy has been set to 'rich' from the very start and usually chairmen will invest in expanding stadiums at the end of each season. I've not had that with mine for this season, hasn't anyone?

    Probably not my place to say as I'm new to the GW but I can't see how it can survive with such a huge gap (financially) between the smallest and biggest clubs, and the smallest clubs being too small in terms of generating income. The 25 limit will help a bit as the top teams won't be able to hoard all the best players but some of the smaller ones will never be able to afford one anyway and their managers are unlikely to stick around for too long in my experience.

    Of the other GWs I've played in the only one still going (80 teams and up to season 22) is there I'm part because the teams are mostly at a similar level and the smallest at least can generate enough income to compete.

    I've not read through the thread so this may have been brought up before or may have been the intention in the first place to make it more difficult (for some teams).
