I just wanted to know what gives people the best feeling of satisfaction when playing the game, for example mine is when you personally pluck (without scout finding him first) a player from complete obscurity and turn him in to a world class player, i love that feeling of bringing a player along and moulding him into a class act...just wondered what peoples thoughts were?

I recieve the monthly training report and view my players attribute increase.

The feeling when you recieve a new bunch of youngsters from the academy

The feeling when you get the message "(Player) Is set to sign for (club)" confirm it or whatever... Love pressing the confirm button

Recieving the training report for a new signed player on the day of signing and viewing it

Having one of your players gain a very prestigious award

Seeing a high potential regen develop over the years... I have pics of my world beaters when they were in my youth and looked pretty crap... It's always nice to see how amazing they have developed

And quite a few other things make me love this game

The feeling when... you sell an average player to the ai for some exorbitant fee and he turns out to be a massive flop playing three times and leaving on a free three years later!

Amen thats such a good shout! I know exactly what you mean

Last-minute winners against rivals. Latest one was against Napoli - sent down to 10-men early-on thanks to what I suspect is a dive (the player is dirty according to an editor) - they take the lead, then I finish them off playing only one winger for 85 minutes and scoring with a screamer from my left-back.

Also, I like it when players prove me wrong. I was considering sending two of my players to the benches and backup roles, only for them to fight their way into first-team positions and turn out to be pretty good. Both are German though, surprise surprise...

I love it when I start playing a young player in my senior team and he does really well. Had one striker score two goals on debut once and another get 2nd place in goal of the season in the champions league.

08-07-2010, 11:13
This is a good thread.

I love the feeling when you get in a message saying "You have been given 500,000 due to a 50% sell-on clause for the sale of a piece of garbage you disgarded and can't even remember. You will get a further 8,000,000 over the next 18 months" !!!

I love the feeling when you get a message saying "Brazil want Reilly" "Argentina want Reilly" "Spain want Reilly" and best of all "SCOTLAND WANT REILLY" !!!

08-07-2010, 11:36
You get a youth player thats potential is rated 3 stars or above by your assistant :D

08-07-2010, 13:49
Watchin your son bag the winner against Rotherham (in EPL!?!?!?) on his debut

08-07-2010, 13:51
When a player thanks me after winning an award.
When a player brags about my teamtalk.
When a player is "delighted with his recent link-up"

To mention a few :)

08-07-2010, 15:06
Your top forward grabbing a hatrick :D

08-07-2010, 15:36
definately when torres put in a 94th minute 1-0 winner away to chelsea in my first season :)

08-07-2010, 16:32
When i got rooney at newcastle for 75 million the confirm button again what a relief because hes an amazing signing second season just promoted and get him helps as i was bought over by an turin based company and invested 600 million and gave me 150 million to spend YEEEHA

08-07-2010, 18:14
Unlikely if you ask me.

08-07-2010, 23:19
when i realise i have made the next star from a 16 year old youth player

08-07-2010, 23:54
My best feeling is srapping a 1-0 win away from home against a team better than me or a similar level.

09-07-2010, 00:14
When we scored 2 goals in injury time to beat Man Utd 3-2 in the FA Cup final :D

09-07-2010, 00:21
As someone mentioned earlier, the end of the month training reports. I love watching youngsters blossom on my team.

That, and taking an MLS club and beating Barcelona in the Club World Championship without having to reload. Couldn't bare to watch the PK shoot-out after a 0-0 game, but won 5-4 after Messi missed the first PK.

09-07-2010, 00:37
When one of my former academy players earns his first cap. Love that.

09-07-2010, 01:45
When Ozil fires home a 93rd minute winner in a top of the league clash against Barca;)

09-07-2010, 02:18
When I defeated Valencia 4-1 in the CL 1st knockout round. I LOVED that especially considering the fact that they knocked me out on that same round the year before following a 4-0 win against me at my own stadium.

10-07-2010, 12:36
You call an opposition player the weak link and he then is the weakest player.

Play Up Pompey!
10-07-2010, 13:35
When a new group of regens appear in my U18 squad and one of them is a wonderkid.

When the fans worship me after winning the league.

10-07-2010, 13:48
When my forward wins the league's top scorer and European Golden Boot. It makes me feel proud that my tactic not only gets my team points but also plays out the way I intend.

When my free kick specialist hits in a 35 yard goal. I just go "holy smoke, did he just did that!?"

10-07-2010, 23:16
I love that quiet moment before the storm

11-07-2010, 12:15
Winning your first game 20 games in to the season using the infamous 2-3-5 in a desperate attempt. Nothing to be proud of, but such elation!

11-07-2010, 17:25
Playing as Leeds United Manager and beating Barcelona 1-0 on agg in my first season in the European Champions Cup Quater Final. Oh, and any win against Manchester United makes my day, even more so if its at Old Trafford.


11-07-2010, 17:30
A scrappy 0-1 win.

Watching your team play the football you want, whether that's quick passing style, or looking to hold possesion, allow the full-backs, to overlap and dominate the ball in the opponents half etc....

11-07-2010, 17:30
I love it when one of my lads score a goal, so i can shout their name out like the commentators do on TV, specially Rasmus Elm, sounds so good when you call out his name when he puts one in the onion bag :). Or am i just strange on that one.

12-07-2010, 10:50
New season, AssMan reports about new intakes, and he is excited about one of them.
I reluctantly click the name, thinking he probably has pretty low stats, only to see a 16 y/o youngster with stats that exceeds the stats of your best players by far.

12-07-2010, 13:28
When i get my new intake of youth players

When my budjets are set for a new season

When the transfer window opens :D

When my best player has come back from injury to score a hat-trick :D

12-07-2010, 15:46
any injury time winner when i have settled for a draw is enough for me to be happy. watching us crush someone 5-0 is also nice when it does occassionaly happen.

signing a bargain player is good as well as making profit on a player who was shocking.

12-07-2010, 21:53
players thanking me for giving them their international debuts and then me being in their favoured personel. Having been Cook islands, China U19s, American Samoa and Uruguay U20s there have been many many players i have given debuts to, so my name is on many profiles now :)

I love that as well. Also I love to have regens with fantastic potential from the first day I start a new save.

13-07-2010, 16:20
The feeling when I jizz :D

edit: thought this was OTF. Honestly

13-07-2010, 17:10
- When a player brought through your youth system is called up to the national squad for the first time
- When a player well out of your league gains a work permit to join
- When the board offer me a new contract
- When Aldershot lose :)

13-07-2010, 17:28
When my team scores a beautiful team move goal.
