Without a doubt the most stupid thing my Assistant has done was in my current game with Man City, in which about 15 games into the season I am due to play Man United in the league. They are top of the league and I am 2 points behind. Press conference is due, so I send the assistant manager as I normally do because I can't be bothered with them anymore.

I continue the game and find out that during the conference when asked who would win the league my Assistant has said Man Utd. Funnily enough my team didn't take too well to this...

Anyone with similar experiences?

This actually made me laugh out loud. Thanks!

My assman, despite being quite rubbish in terms of stats, has generally been quite good. There was a time when I, as Barrow, managed to beat Rotherham 2-0 in the first round proper of the FA Cup. I normally click "ask assistant", and work from there, but my Assman suggested I should say to them their performance was "not good enough". Despite having huge odds against them and not allowing a single shot from the opposition. Needless to say I changed the "team" talk to "delighted with their performance". :P

Told me the gap between my defense and midfield was too big and could be exploited.

My formation :

GK
DL / DC / DC / DR
DM / DM / DM
AM / AM
ST

the gap was minimal, and the sliders were in place to make sure of that. What a twit.

My ASS man told me that Rio ferdinand was having a really poor game against Arsenal all the way 'till the 99th minute of time added on. Yet when the match was over Rio told him where to go with an 8.4 rating and a Man of the Match award. He was an ASS!!

Well Nep, that is a common thing to do with mentalities. That's probably why he's saying that.
On the demo my assistant told me that Cousin was playing poorly (with Hull) after he banged in two goals against Everton...

My favorite was a couple versions ago, when my player/AM suggested, in his Coach Report about himself, that I seek to unload him as soon as possible.

:D

(I don't recall the version, now; SI fixed that in a subsequent patch)

Oh yeah, my Worcester player/assistant said something like that. How did I forget that?
That was on 08 too...
Edit, my memory failed me. I can't seem to get a report on him from himself. Makes sense, I guess.

Well, my Assman is currently reccomending I play a team containing 4 foreigners when the league limit is 3 :rolleyes:

on the demo my Assman told me I should try signing 3 players who were all out injured for over a year to make my squad stronger.

In 08, I went by my Ass Man's advice and released a majority of my youth team. On trying to replace them, I foudn a number of very good players who wouldn't sign for me because I had just released them :mad:

Got an offer of 12 million from Newcastle for Fabregas..

Just finished first season, Fabregas 55 games, 9 goals, Average rating of 7.51...Moral was Suberb and he is currently enjoying life at the moment

Ass Man (Pat Rice) suggests that Fabregas has no future at the club and we should offload him as soon as possible.

Needless to say Fabregas got a new contract and Pat Rice was offloaded as soon as possible.
