    Don't dislike that Cher song (though don't really like it either), not heard of the other.

    My tastes are all over the place, and I might actually kill people mentioning a few things. So I'll just mention that I have 2 playlists on youtube for an individual band. One is Within Temptation, and the other is Eiffel 65, though there's another that's mostly Freedom Call, in my defence.

    I know, they're my 'respectable' like. I was contrasting them with what a lot of people would think of Eiffel 65.

    I don't give a fig for either band. In fact, I'd rather listen to 'Blue' than anything WT did...

    Can anyone figure out what beep code this is?

    I don't think I can recover any data from this but none of the system beep codes seem to match. I'm more curious than anything.

    I have the 3rd period recorded as well! (albeit the quality isn't as good because my BB died and had to resort with my itouch)

    But both files were quite big and I had to wait over an hour for the first one to be uploaded so I never uploaded the other one.

    Wanted to go to the Raptors game against Jeremy Lin and the Knicks when they came to town and film some live footage but had a midterm the next day so perhaps next time if I got time and I got tickets...

    It sucks when real life gets in the way and you don't have much time to spend on FM or the forum.

    I'll have a lot of catching up to do when I get round to having a free night.

    Rafa Benitez is back at Inter in the year 2014 on my save. The news item said that they were delighted to welcome him back.

    Just a quick question for you guys, I've noticed nearly all the threads on here are with lower league or clubs in obscure nations. Would it be ok if I posted updates about my next game? I prefer using teams that I know well as I'm new to FM this year. I think it would help my save if I could share it on here and perhaps get some tips from you.

    Of course, there are no restrictions at all about the sorts of teams people can post about here.

    Ok great, some of the threads on here are epic! 30-40 season-long careers are incredible. I'll have a good read of as many of the threads on here as possible before I start my own I think.

    Just a hint, if you go with Utd, City, Chelsea and the like you will have probably won everything within 5 seasons and will get bored. I managed 30 seasons last year with KFK and never won a major European competition. Also "bad news makes good news" as humans we love reading about how people suffer (not in a sick way but it intrigues us) so bare that in mind.

    But most of all: enjoy your career! If you enjoy it then its likely others will too! And never be afraid to ask for help, most of us don't bite

    I appreciate that mate, to be honest you have made me re-think what I was going to do. 30 seasons is fantastic! I think it may be a good learning experience if I start with an obscure team and work my way up (hopefully.) I doubt I could replicate a career like yours or some of the other lads on here but hopefully I can have a decent long-term save, as you say that will not be fun/interesting with a top European side.

    You will find that you can get very attached to a club, my save in Iceland has made me want to go there and see the football club I played as. They are currently playing in the Icelandic 4th tier (yes it exists!) and are one of the worst teams in the country

    I am already 7 seasons into my new save and I haven't got bored yet, also don't try and push your computer too much. It was get noticeably slower as the years go on and it can get VERY frustrating so have patience

    I guess that's the beauty of FM, I doubt playing FIFA could get you attached to a team like that. I'm definitely sold on the idea of starting down the leagues in a different country. Regarding extra leagues, is there a benefit to loading other countries/leagues other than the one in which my team will play?

    After 30 years the AI has basically switched off in inactive leagues, you get full teams of grey players etc and they don't really compete to buy good players. If your computer can handle it add them (even if it's only as view only) if not it won't break your save

    Ah I didn't realise that. I'm on a medium rage laptop so I can't load too many but I'll load up the top European leagues. The only thing now is to pick a club to use!

    We all have our own preferences that are equally as valid as anyone else's, but in my own experience, switching from 'starting with international rep and wandering wherever' to starting low is one of the best things I've ever done regarding FM, though it helps that you don't have to be successful to increase your rep so you're not stuck at the bottom forever. You'd probably get more interest that way as well.

    For a club I would go one of two ways: either a new club with no history so you can make your own. Or a really old club with loads of history but is now terrible. But as delta says, its your save, you need to enjoy it ;)

    It would be pretty fun to try and start from the ground up, I mentioned before I prefer using clubs that I know but that's probably because it's the only way I have played the game so far, I'm going to try a team that's a little bit different. Thanks for your input.

    I love the idea of turning a team round, I'll load up a game and have a look at a few different teams. I'd like to stay at one club and build them up rather than a journeyman save.

    I will be biased and say Iceland Generally people stick to Europe but there have been several good threads in Asia and South America both last year and this. It depends on what you want to do really and how long you have to sink into it.

    I'd like to have a long-term game ideally. I think Brazil could be good, they're bound to have quality youngsters coming through. One downside is no Champions League obviously.

    Brazil will have you stressed and needing a huge squad, its meant to be very challenging. All perfect things for a good thread! SnakeXe is at Santos currently in his thread and it seems like he is enjoying it

    Very long seasons though with state championships so it would to especially slowly. Sounds great if you don't mind though.

    There is an equivalent in the Copa Libertadores, but it doesn't really match up to the Champions League in terms of money. Managing in Brazil can be highly frustrating, especially when it comes to chairmen accepting bids from European clubs. Saying that, it can also be great, especially if you like building a team with homegrown players.

    Ah, probably not for me then. I like having a small squad of players. I think what I'll do is have a read through a few different thread and see what inspires me. I bet Santos is fun, it's like a factory for wonderkids!

    I think you do 60+ games a season if you want win everything so exhaustion is a major factor!

    Yeah I heard it was a long season down there, makes sense to have a huge squad. I have a question for you, what helps you have a long-term save?

    The Brazilian season does drag on a bit, although you can often win the state championship with your youth team which is pretty good.

    As for long term games, I just need a long term aim. If I've not got anything to aim for then I tend to get a bit bored with it (like last year).

    It helps me if I have people to chat to on Steam while I play, there is a FMCU Group on steam which most of us are part of. Other than that its winning a continental competition (which I haven't yet done!)

    I'd recommend Italy (biased as ever!). It's a 4 league system and takes a while to get all the way up, it's taken me 14 years to survive just one season in Serie A TIM

    Maybe just load up a handful of leagues, start unemployed, and see where it takes you.

    You could load 3/4 leagues you're familiar with, for example England, Spain, Italy etc, then add a couple of other nations as wildcards. Often it can be fun managing in the unknown, but at least this way you've got a comfort net to fall back on if/when it ends in misery

    Yeah, that would really annoy me I think. It's good to look at all the pros/cons.

    There's nothing wrong with starting at a higher level either, obviously if you pick Utd or City you'll get bored easily but pick a team like Blackburn, Everton, Stoke or Swansea in the Premier League. See how long it takes you to start doing well, I know it took me a while and I'm still not there yet!

    Yeah, it would still be a challenge with Swansea for instance no question. I was thinking of using Crawley Town in League 2. Seems like they have growing potential and it would be interesting to see if I could get them to the Premier League I reckon.

    I personally love the English leagues and lower national team management. I've had two good threads this year, the first where I managed international teams starting with Northern Ireland, I absolutely loved that save and although I started a new one with the goal of dominating England starting at the bottom I carried on my international one. Sadly the both got crash dumps and were un-fixable. I tried getting into a different save but it never went anywhere and got crash dumps again. This led me onto FIFA and my YouTube channel but next year I plan on 'Conquering England' and managing international teams at the same time, making sure I back up my games!

    This makes me think, when should we start a 'What are you going to do in FM13?'

    But as for your save, whatever you want. Personally I love a financially crippled club, one like Preston where you get 2 promotions into the Championship and only get 20k wage budget for a whole squad!! So for me, I wouldn't want to manage Crawely, who will buy their way to way success

    If nothing changes at Forest or Pompey by the time FM13 comes out, then they'll both be great saves or should be imo.

    So like one song I've listened to in the last year (Alice in Chains) out of 15. Nice one, iTunes
    Even so, at least it shows one more person among us have a decent taste in music

    Fully stand behind this. Reading a career with some chap starting out with Man Utd or the like and winning everything within 3 years is not interesting. Not for me anyway. But as the Stoke thread shows, it's possible to start out with a big-ish team and still make the thread interesting.

    You're kidding, right?

    In my defence, I used to post on a board populated by hardcore musos. The type that have 100+ albums to choose from in an end-of-year poll. So I'm a little anal with my music!

    I had a feeling someone might know them given the wide range of music some of us have on here. The Macc Lads I only know about thanks to my dad who has awesome taste in music, John Cooper Clarke I figure people might know from Chicken Town. Tito I know because if I hear a song I like in a film I quite often take a risk and get an album by them.

    I would be impressed if you knew Zug Island.

    Associated with ICP right? I had The Great Milenko (Malenko?). Not really my thing, although I did like the 'we've found God' ending to one of their albums!

    Spot on one of ICP writes their stuff. I used to listen to ICP a lot when I was younger but have recently gone off them, the only rapper I really love that was associated with them is Esham. Not every well known but he is the precursor to Eminem style rapping but he is way better. The we've found god ending I think was because of the violence and sex they rapped about in the previous albums people expected more of a Satanic thing going on with them. They are also dubbed the most hated band in the world, I still like to listen to them occasionally.

    Zug Island are nothing like ICP as they are more rock with little to no rapping in them. You really know who the Macc Lads are?

    I am actually annoyed at the state of music, to find something new that I like I keep going back to 70's psychedelic rock music. There is only Example that I like recently who is nowhere near what I normally listen to.

    Late-night John Peel, while growing up ;) . I agree, but there are some gems in the electronica section these days. But I'n with you, I'm kind of stuck in Seattle, circa 1993 musically. Without the Nirvana love.

    I would just love to find a new band that really grips me the closest I can think of was The Horrors album from a few years a go. Even some of my favourite bands are starting to sound boring and have really gone down hill producing albums far from their best. Examples would be Rob Zombie, Marilyn Manson, Monster Magnet, Queens of the Stone Age, ICP and several others associated with them. Like I said I have to go back to the 70's for people like Jefferson Airplane or Echo and the Bunnymen. Apart from that I just take a look at my dads CD's or ask him for some recommendations or ask him who he used to listen to in his youth.

    I'll join in too. Here is my list:

    Mansun - Being a Girl
    Captain Beefheart and the Magic Band - Abba Zaba
    Beck - Pressure Zone
    Nirvana - Something in the Way
    Morrissey - The Never Played Symphonies

    The Beatles - Eight Days a Week
    Tom Waits - Diamonds on my Windshield
    The Seahorses - Do it Yourself
    Howlin' Wolf - Evil (Is Goin' On)
    Jimi Hendrix - Little Miss Strange

    Radiohead - Pyramid Song
    Joy Division - Love Will Tear Us Apart
    Radiohead - Idioteque (live)
    The Beatles - Taxman
    Morrissey - Billy Budd


    Not bad at all. Much better than expected. Although I'm not sure how random my shuffle is, to be honest, as I got a couple of artist repeats in there (Beatles & Radiohead) and also it seems to go through similar genre stuff as it cycles through, which is kind of weird.

    I decided to give it another try as my shuffle through last time didn't seem random enough.

    Gomez - Machismo
    The Beatles - I am The Walrus
    Maximo Park - Karaoke Plays
    Pearl Jam - Daughter (live)
    Paul Weller - You Do Something to Me (live from Days of Speed)

    The Black Keys - Till I Get My Way
    De La Soul - Me, Myself And I
    Morrissey - Roy's Keen
    Supergrass - St. Petersburg
    Eels - Last Days of My Bitter Heart

    Tom Waits - The Piano Has Been Drinking (Not Me)
    Jimi Hendrix - Crosstown Traffic
    Super Furry Animals - Torra Fy Ngwallt Yn Hir
    Sufjan Stevens - Say Yes! to Michigan!
    The Black Keys - No Trust

    I am the Walrus! Awesome!

    I don't know why there isn't much variation when it's on shuffle though. I probably have over 200 artists on my computer but media player shuffle seems to be repeating a lot of the same ones.

    No need to say sorry I am betting Flamers will post another 15 songs now. My itunes just won't get rid of November Rain it is there on every shuffle.

    It's a fun thing to do actually as I hadn't heard some of those songs in ages. For most of the ones that came up, I'd probably have preferred to have heard a different song by the same band, but a few were classics that I enjoyed hearing again!

    Winamp is still superior to resources-hogging and bloated iTunes.

    Hey everyone, I'm looking to start a career thread with Keflavík (local team, stadium 2 minute walk from my house) in the Icelandic Premier Division but god knows I'm not the biggest writer out there so is there anyone here that can help me with picking a good, solid format for writing updates. Thanks
