Yep, it's better and better, but as almost every software it's not
perfect and it needs some work yet ;)

Ok it works now, but not for leage table.

Hmm... so I'll have to prepare some logo for my team ;)

Great.

Ok, good to know that you also know about it.

Yes, that what I would prefer. Every finished match can go to /dev/null,
but every unplayed should stay on that list.

Yes, I've checked it and it's easy way to add matches from my league.
But there should be easy way for adding matches of my friends.

Hmm.. I think that way how it's done right now it's the worst possible.
Maybe simple popup list with favourite leagues and a button to
Add/Remove them from that list? I don't think that someone would be
changing prefered list of leagues to often, so the better way would be
to simplify choosing leagues from previously selected, and other
"harder" way to modify this list.

BTW when do you intend to release new version?
And don't tell me standard answer: when it's ready ;)

Great.

I've got weak Youth School yet so pulling youths isn't exciting for me
at all ;) Almost every youth goes to cemetery ;)

And I prefer to submit feedback because there are always chances that
new version will be more similar to what I've imagine ;)
And that's the power of OpenSource software!
