    Default 100 things I've learnt from Football Manager and the Forums

    After many years of Football Manager and spending time on the forums I was thinking.....
    What do I know now thanks to FM and the Forums?
    So onto the list, Tongue firmly in cheek, lets begin.
    (Before anyone says its not 100 yet but hopefully it will be)

    1. 4-2-4 is the best formation to play when losing with 5 mins left.
    2. The AI doesn't want me to win and will cheat by injuring my striker in training and will also score more than me
    3. Dots are better than 3D
    4. Kipfish's Bandits are so much better than the Sheriffs.
    5. By June we will have threads asking for FM10 already.
    6. When a patch is upcoming we will have 50 seperate threads asking "Whens it out"
    7. Man City always think through every transfer clearly and never spend over the odds for a player who will sit in the reserves.
    8. The AI will always crack my tactics.
    9. When ever a poster called "Rebecca" starts a Thread we know Hi-jinx will follow;)
    10. At some point I will take over my hated rivals and destroy them from the inside, It was a shame for C. Ronaldo having to play left back and Gary Neville is no striker!
    Hopefully we can get some more "Things we've learnt"
    I wonder how many we can get?

    11. Regens >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Regular players
    12. Never bother asking "Is this cheating?" 'cause 99.9999% of the time it is.
    13. Don't tell people to PM SI staff members for links to unreleased patches.
    14. The timebar and adboards on 2D view are pure evil.
    15. Arsenal are the best team in the world today.
    16. Tactics are the solution to virtually every problem.

    18. Never post a screenshot of a successful season/game because you will just get accused of cheating and shown that no-one actually has any faith in humanity

    20. Every single young player at Arsenal will by law become living footballing legends better than Pele and Zidane combined.
    21. The referee will only blow the whistle for offside after the player with the ball has made a shot at goal.
    22. Assistant Managers should never even be let near a press conference.
    23. In the entire world of football there are only about 5-7 back-room staff who can do their job pretty much perfectly (7 stars).
    24. Cisco Roma has two world-class young midfielders (I think)
    25. When clubs take up £250m+ bank loans to build new stadiums, once it's done they suddenly become one of the richest clubs in the world (Valencia).

    28. It's perfectly fine to have over 10 assistant managers with a team in the lower leagues.
    29. It is possible for a team to get so rich that it'll drive them to bankruptcy.

    30. the press are cryptic in their asking of questions so they no longer have to make up stories, just get you to pick the option you didn't really mean

    31. telling people you are pleased with them really means that they can daydream for the next 45mins

    32. most african nations will have no goalkeepers in 5-10 years' time

    33. It's perfectly sensible for a team to sign a player and put their minimum release fee at the same price they paid for him.

    34. Zlatan Ibrahimovic is the most loyal player ever and would never ever leave the club, but it's irrelevant as Inter would never accept a bid, not even £200m!

    42. Selling anyone will come back and bite you on the arse somehow.
    43. It's perfectly feasable that a team will offer you £40,000,000 after one international cap for a young English player, particularly when you are England manager.

    44. When on a winning streak, never shut down FM, or even look away. When on a losing streak, shutting down FM and rebooting later will make your players and tactics much better.

    44. Once you have won a few trophys on fm you think you have what it takes to become england manager irl.
    45. When you have been mispronouncing a players name on fm and you hear the name irl you keep using your version as you cant break the habbit of the last year.

    47. IRL when random player x is linked with your club, you base your opinion on his ability to what he was like when you signed once on FM. This makes your opinion FACT!

    48. Most people who post in General Discussion complaining that the game is cheating them, are actually just rubbish at building tactics, and should go to the tactics forum for advice.

    51. Every single goalkeeper in the world, no matter age or ability, will never be happy to be back-up. He needs to play at least 15 games per season, if not he wants to be transferred...

    53. Instructing your centre half to challenge the keeper on corners doesn't result in him scoring 30+ goals a season making him your star striker. ;)

    74. Knowing that whenever something slightly out of the ordinary happens in a game irl that there will be a handful of threads on here saying SI should code it into the next game as it'd be a 'cool feature'. I truly dread the day a dog gets on the pitch at a televised match!!

    75 - You can win everything in the world and will still struggle to become an icon at your club. 20 league titles, 15 CL and richest club in the world? That means nothing compared to the winger we used to have and could cross a bit.

    Nearly there now. Can't believe we've got this many this quick.

    79 Getting a hundred points will not guarantee you the league.

    80 Your fullbacks prefer to clear the ball via bicycle kick.

    81 "Don't get careless" is worse than useless, unless you have the house on your team to lose.

    85. Strikers will often end a long passing move by booting the ball into touch because they're "not taking any chances."

    107. If your scouts say an U18 could be 'the player of his generation', he'll turn out pants. If you release another player they don't rate, he'll turn out amazing.
