    Default Manager Wars

    Just wondering if anyone has had a rival manager start a war of words in the media for no apparent reason which has continued for months or longer. Also when a manager starts making nasty comments about you do you usually retaliate or do you brush it away and completely ignore it?

    I always get hated by the lower-team managers, but loved by the likes of Ferguson, Wenger and Mourinho.

    the problem is that when someone does make a comment on you, it doens't appear in your letterbox, so these things can easily go unnoticed.

    When i was at newcastle, i was unsuprisingly given stick by roy keane. As it's only a videogame i did my share of retaliation, but in real life i frankly wouldn't dare!

    I wonder why that is? Perhaps the lower team managers are just jealous of you. I usually have an excellent relationship with Fergie as well, thats weird because he seems to have a lot of enemies and is rather disliked IRL. Jealousy does crazy things to people

    In my save i bought an up and coming gem from Bristol City for 1.4m pounds, now he is 21 and is a leading star in the premier league. Bristol City have been in the premier league for the past two seasons and their manager has slagged me off 3 times!!...........do you think this is because i stole this wonderkid?
    I reply by saying i have no time for this ****** BUT after the game when i have won i slag him off HUUUUGE and it gives my team a big boost and Bristol City go on a 3+ winless streak

    I do this kinda thing. Play it cool pre-match, but really rub it in after we've won

    Wait till AFTER you have had a positive result against a rival and then lay into the manager. Doing it pre-match and then being defeated is a surefire recipe for disaster.

    I am hated by every one of the big team managers.

    I tend to get on quite well with a few of them because its easier to get players on the cheap if the game is to be believed.

    if u are hated by a manager does it just say he has a fairly poor opinion of you. i have never got anything more and i have constantly made fun of my rivals manager after wins or just randomly attacking
