The Pacific Electric Football League (Retro Soccer!!)

Recommended Posts

WHoa... what a weird name for a league. Whatssup here?

 

A. There was an actual Southern California Trolley League.

.... that lasted like 22 minutes in 1910.

The name initially made me think the league was affiliated with a rail system; It wasnt, but i was intrigued.... so i will make it so.

 

B. The Pacific Electric Co. would have done this.

Profits came from the owners routing rail lines through their land holdings to facilitate their development. Passenger service alone never made a profit. Creating a sports league to provide attractions along PE routes would encourage development and fill the red cars on match days.

 

C. Some of ye might remember this wackadoodle topic of mine. 

I got bored. The concepts and presentation were pretty weaksauce too.

Santa Ana, "The Golden City". On the actual city seal is....the local courthouse.

Yep not sexy, so they get a nice monogram with sun rays instead.

Stylish gent w/ ze stylish kit.

 

Stadium jazz coming up soon.

 

!!!!!!.............................and a question................................!!!!!!

Hey is there any way to simulate soccer seasons with fictitious clubs/players?

FIFA? Football manager?

I've done this with baseball games (High Heat Baseball/OOTP Baseball), but i've never seen it with soccer computer games.

Fabricating league tables doesn't seem fun and it would be cool to match the players kit model with an actual star of the team. I'd wanna follow though the history of the league 1910-today with expansions, promotions/relegations once i flesh out these first clubs. B)

Fm would probably work, though I think it can take some time to set up. 

 

Using a simple excel sheet can do the trick. 

 

Btw, great job so far! I would love to see you simulate through the years.

I've been using this program, along with tracking results and roster information in Excel, for other sports, but it was originally developed for soccer simulation. There is a scandalous lack of tutorial information but once you kind of figure it out it's cool. Could be useful for you.

If yo have time you can do it manually with dice.

 

If you're interested i'll let you know how. I did it with a Fantasy Aussie Rules league a heap of times.
