Have you done certain things on FM 09 or others and afterwards reflected and learnt from your mistakes?
Well my main one was on FM09, got Birmingham promoted to the Premiership first season through the play-offs, I don't think I've ever been relegated in my first season in the Premiership on any other FM. I decided to sign 'experienced' players, the likes of David James, Sami Hyypia, Filippo Inzaghi and Ronaldo (the old fat one). Well I broke my duck and got relegated, James was my only half decent signing with Inzaghi and Ronaldo scoring 0 times in a combined 22 matches.
Anyway the lesson I have learnt is to sign young, hungry players possibly from The Championship or really top, top quality players (probably could only afford 1 having just got promoted). I tried to do a Harry Redknapp and unfortunately failed, so what lessons have you lot learnt?
Is it Carlos Costly your name refers to? He is such a Donkey.
I have learnt that Lower League teams react best to simple tactics and that over-complication just leads to a lack of organisation. I have also learnt that, in the lower leagues, you need a good mix of experience and young hunger.
Yeah i'm a season ticket holder in the Tilton Road stand, I remember that, I think it was against Southampton. He got through and instead of shooting passed it back to Jerome on the edge of the area! But yeah he almost scored that brilliant goal and then stopped Sinclair from scoring a Messi esque strike. At least he gives it his all, he may not be the technically gifted however!
My worst one ever is when I lost my rag, not my doing anything silly like smashing keyboards or that daft like that. I individualy was angry at every player in team talks and fined each player for 1 weeks her 2 weeks there, I was shortly on the FM dole queue.
In happy-happy-sad-sad-sad-land...Bipolarity rocks!
Re: What have you learnt?
Ive learned that its stupid to install FM on your brand new laptop to "test" how much better it is than your old one.. When you really should be working on 3 case studies, 2 exams and one major paper..
