    Looks like we'll have some time for a mini-tourney following the season and I know some of you have ideas out there, so let's hear them!

    I'd like to see a low-star team tourney. Maybe 3* and below?

    3* and below could be intersting if everyone agrees.

    few extra notes:

    -We'll have roughly 2 weeks for the tournament

    -The last 2 MT's were a champs lg tourney and a 5* tourney, so we'll likely do something other than using the best of the best this time around.

    -The most standard format is group/knockout, but we could also try just knockout but w/ double-elimination to mix things up as well.

    -Usually people are more interested in the MT's if they pick their team as opposed to getting a team drawn for them, so I'd like to let people choose their team if possible.

    I think we go with the standard format of having a group stage.

    If we are going with the lower rated teams sign me up for Toronto FC please!! ;)

    I do too.

    As far as group/knockout vs straight knockout, I prefer group/knockout but if we did straight knockout, I think a 2-leg, away goal fixture would be fun.

    Zikry Thanks for Ryan Johnson, by the way. Scored a hat-trick in his first game in front of the Army. Looks like a good short-term option until Trencito is ready for starter's minutes.

    I'd love to get in on this however my new schedule is shit right now. Working on the railroad with an "on call" status is brutal. I'd hate to commit to the tourney and not be able to get my game in. I'll have to pass but my idea would be either an International or 3* and below tourney. Enjoy boys!

    seeing as we've only used 4* and above whether it was for the season or mini tourneys.. do we want to limit this to 3* or include 3.5*

    Group stage , and play whoever, whenever by a deadline. Pick your own team , but must be 3* or under.
    If you can't complete your games by the deadline , too bad! The team which collects the most points advance to knock out stage. If you can't play the knock-out stage game , the manager who makes the most effort to play the game by the deadline moves on!

    There is no need to keep records of detailed stats , only thing you need to get is the score of the game!

    This is what I think we should do!

    Definitely in for a 3* tourney. Or an out-of-the-way tourney with teams we NEVER use - like from the K-league, A-league or Saudi league.

    Looks like we're at about 8. What's the next step in the process?

    I'm in, if I can't play my game due to work I'm ok with taking it as a loss.

    Why not an MLS tourney seeing we are all mostly USA based and never use those teams?

    If it's all the same to evrybody, I'd rather not limit it to MLS. We've done an MLS tournament before and I'd assume most of us have at least tooled around with at least one of the teams in the league. There are too many possibilities out there with 3* teams to limit it to these shores.

    Time for the off-season mini-tourney! We'll be doing a standard group & knockout setup for this one. Also, we'll have a MAX of 3* teams, and you can pick your team as soon as you sign up! There will not be a maximum number of entrants, so whoever wants in can join. I know a lot of you are interested in MLS teams- I believe all MLS clubs are 3* or lower (unable to check right now tho), so they are all likely available.

    SCHEDULE
    3/5: Group Draw (tentatively scheduled for 10 pm PT)
    3/6-3/12: Group Stage
    3/13-3/14: Quarterfinals
    3/15-3/16: Semifinals
    3/17-3/19: Final

    SIGN-UP LIST:
    1. Broncos218 - Huddersfield
    2. Kella - Jeonbuk FC
    3. redwings8831 - Melbourne Victory
    4. Zikry - Crystal Palace
    5. A_Touch_Of_Class - Monarcas
    6. dooz - Portland Timbers
    7. Frenchie1916 - 1860 Munich
    8. Go Devils - Molde FK
    9. UcanHateMeNow - Seattle Sounders
    10. shiftee - FC Seoul
    11. MiaFLSurf - Pohang Steelers
