I started my quest yesterday to make FC united of Manchester into the best Manchester club. I simmed the first season as unemplyed then when they got promoted I applied as manager. The first season went pretty well. 37 wins 3 draws 2 losses. I scored 157 goals and conceded 45 and finished with 114 points. I pretty much destroyed the whole league. My best win was 9-1 and my top striker scored 45 league goals.

Started the second season in the BSP and added some new young players to the team. I have started with 5 wins. The new players are performing well. Also my team is really young as most were promoted from youth system. Lots of potential in the squad.

They should be present in the third update (second is in submission with Apple now so the one after that) - they're in the game here but have only just reached QA and obviously need a lot of verification to ensure they operate sanely before they reach you chaps.

It contains real players and club names - a few club names (with the exception of a few oddities to do with licensing restrictions - same kind of thing as you see on our PC/Mac titles).

Where possible clubs/leagues are active also have their correct badges displaying - but again this is dependent on licencing.

Marc, any transfer updates planned?
We'll be releasing a January transfer update for the game (for free) as soon as possible after that deadline passes (do bear in mind that QA has to be completed after the deadline is completed so probably a couple of weeks lapse).

The usual approach I take with these is to allow users to select whether to use the new January database or use the previous 'start of season' one when they start a new game (that way if your favorite player has been sold from your club you don't 'have' to lose him if you don't want to).

I'm not that cruel tbh - if you need reassurance, when we did the iPad Universal version last year it wasn't held back until 2012 and was simply released as a free update to that years game .... when something is ready and can improve your experience it'll go into the game.

(so if it doesn't make an update it won't be for want of trying - but there are limitations to what one workaholic can achieve ... at least until my cloning is completed )

Can we change EPL logos?!

I have my iPhone open in PhoneView and I'm looking through all of the English club logos, but I don't see any for EPL clubs.

Is there a way I could drag and drop EPL logos into the game somehow? If they were originally put on the game (even as those 2-color png's) then we could easily rename our files and switch them. But since there aren't any EPL logos listed, is it possible to change them???

Thanks for any help!
