wow. This is going to eat up peoples lives big time!
Is anybody else playing?
I, too, am a computer dork.
what that means?! surely you've outdorked me.
Walking along Dumbarton Road of all places...he quite a big beast of a man.
He couldn't cut it at Celtic.
Donati has been blowing hot and cold.
Scored the winner against Benfica so will forever been endeared to the us Celtic fan. I'll be sure to tell him.
There's no way he's getting that much at Celtic!
Cherno Samba still amazing? I stopped playing about 5 years ago.
P21 W12 D9 L0 (1pt behind WBA)
Knocked out of League Cup in R2, 3-0 at Burnley.
No real plans for transfer window, yet.
^ Apologies for lack of excitement
Not played FM Live yet. Don't think I should. I'm convinced I will fail uni if I start to play it. I had to stop playing FM08 because it was eating into my time.
I was doing so well in it as well! Took Super Caley into Europe!
Completed a season in 2 days, I think that is my new record. I can't stop playing. Still can't get Forest Green out of the conference though, it's terribly annoying. Third season in and this is the worst one so far, I'm 19th after 23 games. I am a terrible manager.
is one of the only things that got me through a bad Christmas
When you start then you do the obvious things, like putting in your name, and where you are from, the team you support etc.
Then you choose the length and width of your pitch, name your stadium, and even choose whether you leave it with stripes or not.
When you go into the game, you have 500k to spend and 100k wage limit. Then you have to search for unattached players and offer them short term contracts. You can change these players all the time until you've decided on a final squad, then the players all sign for you for 4 weeks.
Then you go into the game.
There's LOADS to do, and messages fly from everywhere.
You can join a Federation which best suits the time you are available for matches.
You can create tournaments, and the like, or just challenge people online to friendly matches.
The highlights are much better than any of the other FM games, and there are definitely some nailbiting moments.
Oh, when you start, your players don't know each other well, but the more they play together, the more understanding they have. My first game we were total donkeys, and somehow managed to draw 1-1..... the last game I played last night I lost 3-0 and played amazing. I was the best team for 60 minutes, despite being 1-0 down from a freak break away. Then when I chased the game, then put two past me.
