# Manager absence
If a manager is absent from game play he or she will eventually lose control of the team. How long the manager may be absent depends of the current simulation speed. See below.
## Manager put on holiday
First the manager will be put on holiday. That means that the assistant manager (computer) will take control of the team. The assistant manager will act in benefit of the team and replace injured or tired players in line up. But he may also make trades, sign free agents and release players if he think it will benefit the team. Once the manager logs back in the holiday will end and the human manager is once again in control.
**Days until manager is put on holiday**
- Simulation speed *Slow*: 12 days
- Simulation speed *Normal*: 6 days
- Simulation speed *Fast*: 3 days
- Simulation speed *Lightning*: 3 day
## Manager fired!
If a manager won’t return from his holiday in a certain period of time the manager will eventually get fired and released from the team. That means that the team is now available for sign up for new managers entering the game.
The manager is then unemployed and may choose a new team and game world the next time he or she logs in. The manager reputation and stats are of course kept.
This is the only way a manager may get fired at the moment.
**Days until manager is fired after being put on holiday**
- Simulation speed *Slow*: 36 days
- Simulation speed *Normal*: 18 days
- Simulation speed *Fast*: 9 days
- Simulation speed *Lightning*: 6 days
