Well they are a good team. I can't say this surprises me.

In my latest save it's Arsenal who are winning the trophys, with Man Utd finishing 3rd, 4th and then 11th!

Keep going. Usually SAF retires. In my 2nd season they finished 6th and his contract wasn't renewed. Then Coppell or some such mediocre manager comes in and they fade away.

I can safely say you are lying/joking unless you have some proof.

Indeed, like I say, bide your time until Mr. No. 1 in the Hall of Fame hangs up his hairdryer.

I struggle to beat them, but have finished above them most seasons. Currently 2011 and they haven't won the league since 2008.

United got relegated on my file. 9 points deducted for going bankrupt. I took over them in the Championship in 2021/22. They've always steadily declined on my files.

In my current game I have to say that Man U are pretty bad it has to be said. Although only 19 games have been played Man U are already 14 points behind 3rd place Liverpool who are managed by me. I know that 19 games isnt a lot but unless something really bad happens to the other 3 then I can see Man U catching them.

Well irl they are not far away from that and will only get better over the next couple of seasons so I would say it's fairly accurate

I'd have to say that 8.0.2 is the most unrealistic version of Football Manager (or Champ Man) I've ever played in terms of points won by the champions.

I've played two games so far with Liverpool. In first game, Utd won league with 99 points (which has never happened in reality).

In the second game, Arsenal (yes, the team with the weak squad that is dying now in real life) got 102 points.

It's a shame, cause it's not realistic, and therefore has completely lost the charm it's had for me for over 10 years.

If it's not realistic any more, there's no point me playing it.

And what's with the ludicrous transfer fees? I've sold Riise for £22m, Hammill (reserve) for £9m. Stupid.

I've heard a few stories of Utd going bankrupt in FM08. I'm currently into my 2nd season with them and with 6 games left just got a note saying the board paid off 4m debts to stave off the receivers! I've noticed that in the game they have to pay off £4.6m a month to the bank!

I'm fed up hearing about lack of reality in a game that people take Barnet to the CL final in. You want reality in points, but you also want to have the ability to take Cambridge into the CL spots within ten years.

Which is more realistic, Man Utd getting 100 points or Cambridge marching through the leagues and keeping the same manager the whole time?

Yes it is a shame that the testers and researchers couldn't predict the future when the 8.0.2 patch was released in February. You would think SI would have known that Arsenal were going to go off the boil. For god's sake sort it out SI!!!

The game has always been unrealistic in certain respects and it was defiantely as unrealisitic ten years ago with CM 97/98.

I aggree with your point on transfers but seriously to say that it's too unrealistic to play is absolute pants.
