    Updated : 16.12.2014

    Still the same features, rebooted ;)
    Here's the 1.0 version with the main features you like. Still have to do a mini sidebar version and style the match panels and stuff.

    As some people said before, the skin doesn't work anymore with the new patch. Could you create a version that can be used with the new patch? Would be great as the skin is my favourite one and playing without it is not that much fun...

    Best skin out at the moment but is there anyway, or anywhere, that I can get the actual stadiums to appear on the club information screen? If anyone could help that would be great,
