im all for realism and dont like cheating on the game. but one thing has just struck me with Evertons announcement that they will be using FM09 as a scouting source. that is, couldnt we do the same?
let me explain. Everton, as a RL club dont see any problem with using FMs extensive research to scout out pontential targets. i envisage by that they will be taking full advantage of poring over FMs editor to check out players current & potential values in order to get themselves a decent player. so my point is, would it be considered 'cheating' if we did the same? or do we live in a seperate timeline as virtual managers that presumes FM, or for that matter football games dont exist?
dont get me wrong, ive every respect for LLM with their 'sadistic' ways but i think its a very brave and indeed ignorant manager these days that doesnt use one of the many internet sites recommending decent buys as well as the vastly researched games out there to pick temselves up a bargain. espescially now with the credit crunch & clubs working on a limited budget.
thoughts anyone? or am i being too deep?;)
