Teams: Manchester United F.C.
Changes for 2010/2011
Thought I might as well start this now, so any idea people have can be documented. We can wait until nearer the start of the season before actually deciding anything.
A couple of early ideas
A red card for an AM or ST should result in -3 from the team's score, to reflect the decreased chances of scoring with 10 men.
A red card for a GK, CB, FB or CM should result in +3 to the opponent's score, to reflect the increased chances of scoring against 10 men.
Teams should have to field two full backs. The caveat to this would be that classification of defenders would be more lenient. Managers could choose to reposition certain centre backs (players like Richards, Brown, Cuellar, Givet) as full backs if they wanted to.
This was mentioned before, and I think it's an interesting idea. Managers could loan players to cover for injuries at any point during the season, paying a fee every Gameweek the players remains at the club (whether he's picked or not). Players can either be loaned from other managers, or from the free agents list.
I'm sure you all agree these are amazing ideas, and will make the game about a thousand times more exciting.
