u know, before u all call me "another whinger" i have stuck up for this game for 11 months and as i write this i am shaking with anger and fighting the urge to throw my laptop against the wall. I had got all my s**t together, att, def and bal working perfectly. with 5 games to go i was undefeated and 8 points clear. i had went out of the fa cup to a "miracle" performance from G. Rossi for Man City after a reply where in the first game they DIDNT HAVE A SHOT AT GOAL, and he scored a hat trick to beat me 3-2. In the european cup i have lost S gerrard to injury for the rest of the season and a miracle performance from Barotelli, a hat trick give inter a 4-2 win. I take both of these on the chin. then in the run in I can draw with 0-0 with bolton at home, tho lucus and mascherano are my only fit cms. i can take this. However when i go to villa park in the next game and they come back from 3 down at half time i get a bit miffed, especially when the move to 424 at 75mins and it takes my tactics 7 mins to change, but not before villa switch there 2 wide front men round and IMMEDIATELY equalize. 3-3 it finishes. Then however the mist decends, after to i go charlton, already relagated with a measley 16 points - who beat me 1-0 with a penalty after yet another "goalkeeping clinic" - i get results at old trafford, the emirates and stamford bridge, outplaying every 1 of those home sides - but lose to a side thinking about their summer holidays. also ive gave away penos in the last 2 games at crucual moments. why are my defenders morons? And another thing, i have been top of the league the whole season yet my board think i could be doing slightly better even tho they give me f**k all money to spend, and are unlikely to offer me a new contact.
It seems that i will never win the league in fm08, tho apparantly its an impossible task unless you are a money bags who goes out and buys aguero/silva/fernandez etc. I am so unbelievebly p*ssed off right now and i want so goddamn answers
