Many thanks to postie for delivering something on time for once. I'll see you all next month.
and yet here it is in my hands right now :)
If so, I'm sorry Sarah, You won't see me again until somewhere in 2013
If I get my essays done on Thursday night, I'm gonna get it, and play it till my eyes fall out. Well, next week anyway, damn my activity-filled weekend....
That would be excellace.
I WAS UP TILL THREE IN THE MORNING!
WHATS NEW AND WONDERFUL?
Press conferences - Quite good. You get 5 choices for every question, and they're more varied than the old press stuff in terms of content. Biggest problem is the answers sometimes seem a bit stilted in comparison to the questions.
3D engine - see below... can't use it.
Assistant Manager reports - more in depth and useful. As well as identifying weak areas in your team/squad, he'll try and recommend people to fill the gap. You can also now ask him to look at the loan list for you and come up with a few suggestions for a specific position.
Takeovers - Dunno if this was in FM2008, but I've had a transfer embargo slapped on me by the board since a takeover's imminent. The Supporters' Trust and a Consortium are in the frame.
Matchday - Again, the Assistant manager plays a bigger role here. Identifies weaknesses in both your and the opposition's team. Some are obvious (low condition), others less so. Ratings are now Pitchforkised (to one decimal place) and it tells you how far your players've run during the game.
Finances look a touch more realistic (certainly at lower levels). Not spot on yet, but much better.
Widescreen support (good for the laptop)

Sounds very familiar!
I went on holiday through 2008/9, and took over Maidstone on July 1st as they were one of the two promoted clubs. I'll go check on how Lewes got on last season though and who's in charge there.
Nice touch to have different groups competing to take over the club as well.
Lewes - KK's still in charge and the board's unchanged. Finished a respectable 24th in 2008/9 with 40 points, so I'll be up against them later this season. FA Trophy 3rd round, but out of the FA Cup in the 4th Qualifying.
40 points? Hahahaha!
I was gonna get this.
How much you buy it for?
I bet it's all buggy and crappy right?
I got a free copy.
2 problems thus far;
- The 3D match engine is really choppy on my Mac, so I've gone back to 2D (not a massive loss)
- Ctrl + click (on the mac for right click) messes everything up. Apparently it's fixed in the patch that'll be coming out. I've found an alternative way of right clicking anyway.
Isn't it on Xbox - my pc will never run it in a million years
You can't play it on PC till then.
depending on how things go. I can always leave the necessary with you.
it would be next week to play this. roll on friday.
but now that it's about to happen, YEAH!!!!
This is the one thing that makes November bearable.
