    Picking your own opponents for League

    I have been experimenting over the last 6 seasons, on trying to influence who I will be playing against in the league the next season, with pretty positive results. As some on here have seen, I am usually friends with at least half of the teams in my league (this season it was 9 others). I will be losing half of them now, as they have failed to get promotion.

    However, I have about 5 friends who are a level higher than myself, so I regularly go and watch their matches. I have noted down which of their opponents are struggling down the bottom, but are still playing regularly. I then send these managers a friend request, in the hope that I'll be placed in the same league as them next season. If that were to happen, I already know that I have a superior team to them. So far I've picked up 4 of them.

    Totally agree about the competition side of it. I've just lost the league by goal difference, against one of my long standing, in-game friend's. Up until match 25, there were three of us in contention. I would have won the league if I'd only taken more than 1 point from the four matches against the other two.
