marksbros6 Posted April 21, 2020 Share Posted April 21, 2020 Hi all. As I’m stuck at home (as I’m sure most of us are) with no sport or football to watch I’ve been exploring some old Championship/Football Manager games aka ‘going retro’ with a view to playing some classic squads/scenarios. Got me thinking of the history of the game; we must have European/World football history represented from 1993-2020 and all the changes and up’s and downs for teams in that period represented. So topic for discussion: which ‘classic’ CM/FM database would you like to see re-imagined with the modern game-engine. One of the best ‘ideas’ from SI was the ‘FM 1888’ April-Fools joke. If SI were to do that with their own ‘back-catalogue’ though which season would you like to see? For me (as a Spurs and England fan) I’d have to pick the 1994/1995 season. For starters this was ‘CM93’ territory/game engine, just missing-out on the CM2 game-engine. So would be good to see it on-screen with a decent gaming-experience. I think that was the last Premier League season with 22 teams as well, so the game would look a bit different to what we’re used to. Italian football was also massive in profile then. So many ‘big’ players from that Era in Serie A at the time. For ‘my’ teams ’94 was the season of signing Klinsmann and the ‘Famous 5’ up front so would be fun playing with that and an ‘all-out’ attacking philosophy, as well as seeing if I could keep him around for more than one season. Especially now his frustrations are known regarding the lack of investment in the rest of the playing squad that year (that’s something that could be accurately modelled in the modern FM game-engine that isn’t as obvious in the older games). For England; Euro 96 was just around the corner. ‘Old’ Wembley Stadium in the match engine. It’s coming home, it’s coming home… time to change history. So; just putting it out there for fun; which ‘old’ CM/FM database would you like to see re-imagined using the modern game-engine? (Honourable mention to CM 99/00, possibly my favourite CM version. Spurs back in Europe and would love to see Ginola swanning around on the 3d Match Engine). Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
