 Fans manage the team

Decisions such as the team line-up, in-game tactics and substitutions are decided by more than 2,000 virtual managers - this is like the Football Manager simulation game in real life.

How would we go at this?

I reckon we'd fare terribly - although it might be worth doing so to help some of the raspers amongst our support realise that real football matches and tactics are complicated things - not necessarily improved by 'a big strong midfielder', 'getting stuck in' and 'putting in a shift'.

You'll be in the minority on here with that view, Bandy and you won't convince anybody in the other group that you're right. ☺



Not your average Sunday League player.

It's quite an interesting experiment though. And they are clearly making a fair bit of cash out of the idea

It's the old Monty Python intro to the Holy Grail: those responsible for the sacking have now been sacked 😀

Not quite the same, but a few years ago Ebbsfleet United was owned and managed by the 35,000 "fans" who bought into it, and had the right to approve transfer dealings, team selection etc. Thrre wasn't an in-play option though.

75% of the "fans" didn't renew for the second year, after two years, 90% of the "fans" had given up and the club was sold to Kuwaitis.
