the same irritating stuff keeps happening. I wonder if the people who make this game actually watch football sometimes.
The main thing that STILL bugs me with this game is the amount of times the opposition, over a higher than realistic number of matches in a season, will score with every 1, 2, 3 chances they get. I've tried different tactics (both my own and peoples ones off of here) over the years but the amount of times it happens against my team is still disproportionatly more than ANY cpu team (in the past I've actually gone and looked at every other match form my league) and come the end of the season, no matter where I finish in the league, my team will be at the top of that list and a good 6 or 7 games more where it has happened than anybody else.
Now I know I'll probably get the same old smart arse fan boys piping up stating "maybe you're just not very good" or "you need better players" or "it's your tactics" but I'm telling you that it is none of the above, it's just that FM poorly built (I get sick and tired of waiting 2-3 mnths after its release before they've pulled their damn fingers out and patched it so that it's at least half playable) and the people who are making it waste too much time focusing on improving cosmetic nonsense rather than delving deep into the core of the game and making the actual representation of the GAME of football the most important part of their work. I Acouldn't give a toss about a 3D match engine or whether I can have a conversation with my player or if my board want to give me an extra £100k transfer budget. I jsut want when I go into the match for it to represent a PROPER BLOODY GAME OF FOOTBALL. It's like putting a pair of breat implants on a bimbo BOBFOC, yeah it might look good and be nice to play around with but a the end of the day she's still got the IQ of tin of Spam and a face like Freddie Krugger ball-bag.
So there you have it. As I've wasted my money on yet another unplayable, steaming pile of dig turd that is FM I may come back to it in a few months just so that I don't completely feel like I've crapped away my £'s but for now, quite frankly, SI can
