Are any of the obscure things positive?

So far, I have been ultra cautious of 'too goo to be true' offers.

However, with little money, a small stadium, and little prospect of challenging, I am prepared to give it a risk - 300k for a talented youngster.

Too risky, or do they sometimes pay off?

There was one similar to this several years ago - £25,000 for a promising young player. I figured that if he was crap and I auctioned him I would still clear £25,000. I got a half decent player that played a bit.

I think that one's been taken off the CLub News circuit now.

There are some good positive ones to be fair. There is one when you get an 11 rated young player, was good for league 3 for the first two seasons, not so anymore. Or the one where the rich dad wants to give you 500k to take his one rated son on, turning down the offer still gets the 500k!!

Of course the fun part is trying all options and working out which is best for your club at the time.

In my opinion it defeats the object of the club news section if a manager just asks on the forum what all the outcomes are and ruins the game a bit if other managers reply with the outcome.

In the past, I've voiced my opinion on 'helping each other out' with info, scouting and transfers that have no obvious benefit to your team. It still happens. Then again, I suppose all managers are free to play the game the way they want and get what they want out of the game.

Sorry Richard, I thought helping out a new manager would be my good deed for the day

I might just mix these up a bit over the next few weeks. Change some of outcomes for different responses and add new ones.

If anyone has any ideas for any new ones do let me know. Don't expect you to write them, just outline ideas. The club news mainly affects finance, club morale and directors opinion so no ideas that involve Stadia or anything like that

Cheers... Steve

I didn't ask for the answers, I just asked whether any of the too good to be true ones ever paid off

Perhaps one scenario Steve is you could put the player overseas rating up from 11 to 20

Have you mixed them up?... How about your goalkeeper refused to be subbed off during a cup final and played on.. what do you do with him!!

Steve I meant to do this before now but forgot.
Here are a few rough ideas that could be padded out a bit to create scenarios.

-Domineering Chairman wants you to offer short term contracts to all players over 30.
Would this harm morale? Do you stand up to the Chairman or accept his demands with a whimper?

-You have been offered the managers job at a rival club. Do you use this as a bargaining chip to demand more cash from your board to spend on transfers? Will it backfire?

-Your board are pressurising you to spend less on established players and develop your own instead.
Do you accept your boards offer of a promising youth player in exchange for him/her taking some of your cash to invest in improving facilities at your Youth set up?

-Your Captain knocks on your door and tells you that the players are unhappy at your Chairman not letting them join the Players Trade Union. Do you try to appease your Captain with a few empty promises or do you take his request to the board who are unlikely to be pleased?

-One of your players has been accused of illegal betting. Do you sack the player in question or initiate a full investigation which may open 'a can of worms' within your club and could have far reaching consequences with the Summit FA?

Not sure if any of them have potential or not....and yes I probably do have WAY too much time on my handssmile

Darren

great to see someone offering help in developing the game. Just noticed though that your scenario ideas only have 2 options.

The club news news has A, B and C options. Thinking cap back on for a third choice each time.

I like giving other people work to do.

Ya you are right. They would need work but maybe Steve could finish them off the A,B and C so some of it is kept under wraps.
I have a few more scenario outlines that may or may not work:

Player ownership issue: It has come to light that one of your players is not fully owned by the club as his agent has produced documentation that goes back to the last chairman's stewardship. He claims to retain 10% of his rights.
Do you pay this agent for the remaining 10% and keep it quiet or do you report him to him the Summit FA and plead ignorance?

Mental Health in Football: There is an article in the local paper about past players mental health after they finish their career.
Your club has been named in this article. Do you embrace this important issue and become a major financial contributor to a local charity involved with this issue?

Rename the Stadium: You receive an offer to rename the stadium. Will the fans be annoyed if you accept?

Major Car Sponsor....wants to give some of your top players a brand new top of the range sports car.
Will this affect morale with the other players if you allow it. (There is something similar to this already so maybe this one needs more creative A,B and C outcomes)

Exploitation of young footballers: You are approached by a questionable organisation in Africa who have been reported to exploit young footballers for their financial benefit. A good young prospect is offered to you for free, but in return you are asked to endorse this organisation. Does your club want to support such a ruthless regime who intensively 'farm' and exploit players in return for a talented and valuable player?

Please feel free to change any of these scenarios in any way you like.
Some of them may be too close to existing ones.
They are just ideas to form the base of a scenario.

I've got the 300k meet a stranger one just wondering if Steve has mixed up the answers.

I'll throw a modern one in for you... Your star player is on social media posting things about the club you rather he didn't, do you ban all players from social media , warn them about it or just think it's the youth of today carry on!

I like the social media one. I think these scenarios are probably for the weeks ahead, after the three leagues have had their time consuming week 33 processed. Not sure how long they take to do?
