World Cup: Restrictions on Managing Teams
Posted by Brian Beerman on Thursday, Aug. 17th, 2023 at 6:32 PM

If our World Cup nation selection process includes some/all personal selection(s), I am curious what people think about restrictions on managing one team for consecutive competitions. Please leave comments, questions and/or ideas. Thanks!

Readers Comments

I think a limit of two consecutive Cups coaching the same nation is a good compromise.

Brian Beerman on Thursday, Aug. 17th, 2023 at 9:17 PM
 

twice seems good to me 

Vick Hall on Thursday, Aug. 17th, 2023 at 11:38 PM
 

If John wants to manage Croatia and no one else wants to, I can't see why you'd stop him just because he's done it before - however many times it's happened.  But if he's managed Croatia the time before, even if just once, and someone else wants them, I'd make him stand aside.

Roger Mendonça on Friday, Aug. 18th, 2023 at 7:00 AM
 

I also think this is putitng the cart before the horse - we won't need to worry about this for awhile.

John Holden on Friday, Aug. 18th, 2023 at 11:44 PM
 

As Roger says, if nobody else wants to manage a team, why restrict it? It would be interesting to see how many people would actually want to switch teams.

Dave Gittins on Saturday, Aug. 19th, 2023 at 2:20 AM
 

Hi John, 

Yes you're right, but I am excited about this addition so you might hear from  more than normal. 😆

Brian Beerman on Saturday, Aug. 19th, 2023 at 4:38 PM
 

We are waaaaaay overthinking this fun addition to the game.

Phil McIntosh on Sunday, Aug. 20th, 2023 at 3:44 AM
 

I think a WC Commisioner could dole out teams. If a manager requests a team, done. If multiple managers want a team, that's what random number generators are for.

Phil McIntosh on Sunday, Aug. 20th, 2023 at 3:46 AM
 

I think people will be in two buckets:

1) Give me a team I don't care

2) I'd really like this team or that team and also here's why (my country; 2nd favorite that I support; the Genetic test says my wife is 1% the nationality of this country; etc).  😎

In terms of taking the approach the 2nd time (WC 2) around we can probably learn from the 1st one and gauge the group then.

Allan Sellers on Sunday, Aug. 20th, 2023 at 10:03 PM
 

If we survive to play a second WC....

Phil McIntosh on Thursday, Aug. 24th, 2023 at 3:33 AM
 

Wait, wouldn't Phil be the presumed Inaugural Winner?  There are precedents here if I can get all "lawyer-y" for a moment...

Allan Sellers on Thursday, Aug. 24th, 2023 at 9:35 PM
 

I should have explained my reasoning for limits on coaching one team multiple times. It was solely based on a comparison with reality where coaches might only get one or two shots at a trophy. Nothing more.

That being said, and given the thoughts and suggestions to date, I like the idea that those managers who want a specific country should have that opportunity, and we use a RNG to assign the remaining nations to country-less managers.

when do we get to get this on? =)

Rob Peterson on Saturday, Aug. 26th, 2023 at 1:19 AM
 

Rob, 

We are on track to run the first WC after season 47 (before aging). I know that seems pretty far off, but we need time to populate the league with enough players from the various nations. 

Brian Beerman on Tuesday, Aug. 29th, 2023 at 1:33 PM
 

I have to say I would want Wales 

Graham Wilkes on Saturday, Sep. 9th, 2023 at 6:37 PM
 

I will admit my desire to coach Die Mannschaft.

Brian Beerman on Saturday, Sep. 9th, 2023 at 9:29 PM
 

Well, by all means let's get to populating!

Phil McIntosh on Wednesday, Sep. 13th, 2023 at 5:47 AM
 

I think we have to coach our countries - so I get Portugal!

Aires Martins Jr. on Thursday, Sep. 14th, 2023 at 5:02 AM
 

Not worried what country I get and should not limit number of times you can manage a team.

Matt White on Friday, Sep. 15th, 2023 at 10:28 AM

Matt White on Friday, Sep. 15th, 2023 at 6:50 PM
 

** UPDATE **

Based on consensus, there will be no restrictions on the number of times a manager can coach a national squad.

Brian Beerman on Monday, Sep. 18th, 2023 at 5:19 PM
 

Will it be limited to only MSWL 1 players.  Could the number of available players (and willing coaches) be fleshed out by pooling the 2 leagues?  Apologies if this is somewhere, but I haven't read all the threads fully!

James Tucker on Monday, Sep. 25th, 2023 at 2:16 PM
 

James,

As of right now the plan is to use U1 players. If a nation doesn't have enough players to field a team, my thought is to generate enough NL players for that cup only.

I would like to run at least the first Cup with U1 players and managers to see how things play out. This is a topic we can certainly revisit as the competition gets closer.

Brian Beerman on Monday, Sep. 25th, 2023 at 3:09 PM
 

Is u2 a lesser league? Is that what we are saying here?

Phil McIntosh on Friday, Sep. 29th, 2023 at 3:28 AM
 

Yes Phil, U2 is a much lesser league (though the band is excellent). I am surprised you need a reminder about that. 🙃😁
