    I'm trying to contain myself from laughing out loud whilst reading this thread at work! Such nerdy, cheesy replies makes it all more funny!

    Have a look what other players are being offered by their 'agents'. You could replace her with a younger, cheaper model.

    FM - Where players are touted around by pimps!

    maybe you can convince her instead to join the back room staff, that'll at least get rid of her pimp...crap i mean agent and then you can evaluate her working with youngsters for when you bring in a replacement

    I must sympathise...

    Formerly I was having great problems with an English signing who couldn't settle in Spain. Following considerable personal differences and private chats with her, but assorted disagreements with the agent (mother in law), I decided the best approach for all concerned was a mutual termination of contract.

    After some time looking for a replacement, I've managed to acquire an amazing and younger Spanish talent, who really might be the next big thing. Has to be said, the language barrier hasn't proven a problem so far and I'm very impressed by the technique... particularly the agility and jumping.

    You may need to ask your parent club for a loan signing- her head attribute is terrible and her high dribbling means she struggles to swallow as it all spills out. You also need to
    stand-off as her bravery is low so she may get nervous, to work around this put yourself on a heavy longshots focus so you can still reach the vaj from distance

    If his mates or anyone asks for comment on the matter, there is only one sensible response:

    "I don't wish to focus on individuals right now."

    No doubt they'll come back with "her mates will wanna hear a proper answer from you". The appropriate response?

    "No comment".

    My wife has an understanding for FM thankfully..she played alongside me on her own laptop until last years version. She says its all too involved and she prefers the old fm 2008 before the old media stuff and team talk madness! I don't give two hoot really as i secretly love the game and its all i ever play.

    If she is in good form, try offering her to clubs for more than his market value, there could be plenty of takers!!!!

    No choice but to send your scouts out for a replacement; they'll find you some 5 star talent.

    I have just found a great wonderkid, she is described as the next Angelina Jolie. I will let my girlfriend tutor her, just to increase her cooking and cleaning stats! I just hope that her hidden stats are ok as well.

    Leave for a new club. There's bound to be a better club just up the road, where the talent is much more impressive.

    Or get her in the club - then she won't have the time or energy to moan. Plus it will enhance your youth development policy.

    Tell her she has to work in combination with her mates, rather than doing everything solo.

    Could be an issue with form. She could just be going through a bad period.

    The game actually helped my marriage, my missus was giving me the usual grief about playing FM & i had the vibes that something was gonna kick off, then i remembered how my players reacted to certain situations in the team talks, so i tried the calm approach. I explained that she was very appreciated & that she was a very important part of the team (marriage). She smiled, I thought wow this is working so i went a bit further, we needed the leaky tap fixing so i gave her the "I have faith in you" option, soon she was under the sink with a spanner. Not wanting to push it too far i had a go at "that was a great 1st half performance" this rewarded me with a cuppa & some biscuits as well as a compliment on how nice the skin was i am using. So thank you SI for strengthening my marriage, i can sit in front of the telly now with my feet up playing the game on my laptop knowing we are as solid as a rock! Come to think of it i do fancy a bit of cheese on toast, "hey love, did i tell you that your easily one of my key players right now"?

    Have a boardroom meeting with the in-laws and request an upgrade to the training facilities.

    An upgrade to the kitchen would result in a better performance from her, and therefore better sandwiches.

    May I also suggest a private chat using a "passionate" tone; be careful though, or you might end up with an unexpected youth intake.

    If she is ambitious, try rewarding her with 'high league and cup bonuses' and her morale will remain 'superb' always.

    Well, in the league you're playing in I'm sure you can soon get someone better on your staff.

    How many stars could she have if she's already "willing to listen to any offers?". Clearly her contract isn't up yet so maybe she's being poached by a sugardaddy?

    I think you're going to need to hire an agent to negotiate some better loyalty bonuses next time out.

    (How'd I miss this thread, it's brilliant!)

    My wife is always having a go. Just yesterday she had a go at me for taking Football Manager far too seriously.

    "Leave me alone, I don't have a go at you for watching soaps" I said from my dugout at the bottom of the garden.

    It's my son's first school sports day today, and it's the proudest day of my life.

    I've finally won the Champion's League on Football Manager. I can't wait till he gets home from school so I can tell him about it.

    Today is the happiest day of my life. I have a son.























    In FM. His name is not Scott as IRL, though...




    Keep 'em coming, this is great fun!

    It is actually your tactics....

    Set her to fluid and you to rigid then work balls into her box and you'll be fine.

    Well I'm glad I found a thread to post my marriage issues. After a lot of complaining about not enough first team action i had had enough.

    After holidaying for a year I returned to find my ass man had sold wife, replacing with some young talent and my kitchen sink capacity had been increased by 5 plates! Not bad I'm sure you'll agree!!!!! Was disappointed to see my loyalty to wives stats had dropped though :-(

    I signed a 17 year old youth with lots of potential from Thailand, she didn't get a work permit though and appealing could prove problematic...

    So I've loaned her out for £150 an hour.

    In the Sun newspaper, Jigsaw, a reporter, stated that his wife told him she was leaving because he played too much Footy manager and did not take any notice of her. He told her she was being unprofessional and he would decide if she went or not.



    You nicked my joke, I posted this on the 27th November. I am going to report you to FIFA.

    Check her TEAMWORK rating and I reckon if it's anything above 12, ask her to invite a female friend into proceedings and let the fun and games begin!!

    Does she drop deep to pick up balls? or is she more a Hernan Crespo type to hanging right on the edge but envitable always off side

    Experimenting with subtle variations to tempo during the game can often lead to a flurry of goals just before the final whistle.

    Play the 4-4-2 formation, with 'balanced' mentality, should help.
