  1. Nobody actually voted for or wanted a No Deal Brexit or a Hard Brexit until about 18 months after the Brexit vote when those two phrases actually begun to be used to convince the Brexit voters that that was what they voted for and wanted all along. People will deny this, but forget that they spent the months immediately following up to and immediately after the vote telling everyone that the Germans would be queuing up to give us a great deal and that we'd get a better deal and be better off, whilst calling anyone who didn't "Project Fear" or unpatriotic people who didn't believe in the
  2. Jesus Christ, are you like this with sex with Mrs Bliss? Spend 17 days over hyping it for 3.7 seconds of total disappointment. She must have either the total patience of a saint or a total lack of understanding of English or she'd stab you with a garden trowel She must sob herself to sleep at night muttering in Lithuanian, "the green card wasn't worth it, nowhere near worth it!!!"
  3. Why? You should atleast offer reasons why. Saying the bolded parts are the most problematic without offering the 'why' its kind of pointless and not helpful. All the TI's you bolded, it is possible they contribute. But on the other hand, all the TI's you didn't bold could be just as problematic. With the shape he is playing and how aggressive he is with the mentality in the tactic you quoted I'd have suggested that is likely a huge factor above all the bolded ones you added. I also don't agree with the roles you bolded, all those roles will defend naturally when possession is lost and he

  6. April 2027 A big upset to beat Auckland and because they beat Team Wellington in the Quarter Final it means that there won't be a New Zealand side in the final! We'll be up against Kiwi who we beat 3-0 in the Preliminary Group!
  7. Did a 5k on the park run route this morning clocking 26:50 which being my PB there is 27:09 is pleasing enough. Now to get faster whilst waiting for them to resume.
  8. CD Mensajero 2027/2028 LaLiga 2 – 17th Fixtures (1) -- Fixtures (2) -- Stats -- Awards -- Season Review -- Transfer -- Overall Best XI -- Key Player -- Hot Prospect -- Finances League: Considering our form from the back end of last season I did hope we’d get off to a good start but we did not with us losing 4 of our first 5 games. We did start picking up a few results after that but never really found our rhythm and were on the wrong end of some heavy defeats. The second half of the season did see us improve defensively but all season goalscoring was a major issue with
  9. So with the new season almost underway, I got the "bug" to manage in England again. Something I usually start and end every FM edition with. However, I want to do things differently this time around. My recent saves have been a lot of racing through the seasons, long-term objectives, instant results, hunting for cheap new-gens all over the globe. While that has been a lot of fun, I'm keen to explore what else this game has to offer, and jump back into the actual day-to-day management of a football club. The club I have picked for my new journey is Aston Villa And a big part

  11. Look @Bliss Seeker I know your game, you’re hoping to stretch this long enough that I die, and you’ll declare yourself winner by default Well I’m on to you, and like Jacob Marley I will haunt your arse for years
  12. Started an 867 game as Jorvik. Nothing quite beats capturing a Lord, making his wife/daughter a concubine, then executing him. I'm such a scumbag in this game. I love how my character is apparently a homosexual, and any seduction attempts are automatically 0%, but his concubines are pumping out kids on an annual basis. I'm assuming he has a stand in. I played the original CK regularly, right up to CK2's release, but I could never quite get into the sequel. I found it barebones on release, and was never really tried it again, despite buying most of the major DLC, thinking I'd eventually ge
  13. If you wondered what has happened to the updates...... CK3 is bloomin amazing.
  14. Are you going for the record for being wrong the most times in one thread?
  15. Has gotten pretty crazy since this! My character King Murchard II who owned Galicia / Leon and was married to the queen of Castille died of a seizure at the age of 57 but not before his son King Enri (then King of Castille due to King Murchard II's wife passing away) passed away meaning I was now King Murchard III my grandson who was 15 when I took over. Sadly my decision to marry my daughter to a powerful vassal in France backfired on me and allowed my uncle to lead a rebellion against Murchard III to get my uncle Eochucan on the throne and become King of Castille, splitting up the
  16. Let's treasure this, it's the closest racing we're getting all weekend.
  17. Season 43/44 Superliga Finish 8th Season Summary A really nice set of fixtures saw us start the season unbeaten and sit top f the league after 7 matches. As soo as we met the big boys though we got battered. We slowly slipped down the table but managed to sneak into the championship group due to that strong start. Once there we only won once and finished bottom of the group, with two teams in the relegation phase overtaking our points total, pushing us out of the european places and down to 8th overall the cup is such a waste of time for us. in 24 seasons I've only man
  18. Here is the tactical shape I seem to be now settling on. The first few games was played with a 3-4-1-2 formation but Grealish as an AM was absolutely non-existent. So now trying a flat midfield 3 instead. The fixtures so far - after a very rocky start we seem to be finding a bit of form. And here is what the current league table looks like, although it would be a minor miracle if we manage to stay in the European places.
  19. So how am I going to do things differently? A couple of things: Tactics - the save will focus a lot on tactical systems & frameworks. I will NOT be using my trusted 433 which has always delivered on every single save till date, purely because I am bored of it. Instead, I want to immerse myself into the world of the 3-5-2 and try my best to make that work. Getting the best out of club captain Jack Grealish will be crucial, and I would also like to use a Targetman in the front 2 (Villa have a good young one already in the shape of Wesley). Taking inspiration from the tactics

  21. How can I disagree? Man, I can think whatever I want, isn't that logical. Patch notes, copies sold and positive reviews MEAN NOTHING. Than does not mean this is FM is good. Let's for example take something popular. Some idiotic tik tok song for example. Some of those songs have a hundred of milions of views, millions of likes, does that mean that music is good? No, of course. In some cases, numbers/likes/positive reviews mean nothing. You must take in consideration that those positive reviews, may be writen by hardcore fans, who will defend the game no matter what, they may
  22. I have read this post three times now, and I still have no clue as to how any of that makes the game easier/harder.
  23. From discussing the matter in another thread, I did some testing and can see that (at least in FM18) reviving Bermuda Hogges and changing their nationalities, name, history etc can allow you to effectively create a new club, insert it in a country of your choosing, and have a team like Chivas in Mexico that can only sign domestic players. Swap them with a Prem team and you can have an English-only team, for example. The transfer restriction is hard-coded, like Athletic Bilbao - although I can't find a way to do it with another nationality like that (i.e. Basques in Spain, instead of
  24. Originally posted on my blog I have been an avid follower of these forums since FM12 days, but never had the desire to chip in. However, I have lately started to blog about FM and my Hearts side, and I believe that this article about 5-3-2 formation is the least I could to these forums to repay what I have learned from all the people on these forums. (Special shoutout to @Experienced Defender, @Cleon, @Rashidi for sharing their knowledge for so many years, inspiring me to start writing myself!) PS. Excuse any poor grammar, English is my second language. ========================
  25. Its the greatest sci-fi shows ever made. It deals with political issues of the time that are still relevant today through allegory such as allied involvement in the iraq war. Has some great characters and interactions. Very grown up, intelligent sci-fi.

  28. FC Energie Cottbus - 2022/23 Season Review - 2. Bundesliga This season felt harder than last season. It didn't help that we lost Tobias Eisenhuth at the beginning of the season to Hamburger for just £1.3M, only for Hamburger to get relegated and for Eisenhuth to be playing in the 3. Liga division throughout the season. Still, I realise just how difficult this season was for us with the fact that we at one point went 9 games without a run and went 6 games without scoring a single goal either. The tactics I was using wasn't working, so decided to make some slight changes. I went from
  29. I think he stuck a lynch on me expecting/hoping that more people would jump on, as Darren, John and Butts had been on me at various points in the previous day. When none of them took his bait I'm guessing he gave up and thought better of it to try and find a new target, which interestingly, was BP, who only had Gazza D on him at the time. On the day of the Lynch, with everything still to play for: Would Harry really jump on BP if BP was a nobber and they know Boots is town, especially given there's every chance others pile on BP? After Harry's post and lynch on
  30. Yes. Buying regardless. £30 for hundreds of hours of gameplay is a bargain every year.
  31. Public betas are a thing in many games these days. It's a way for the developer to invite people on board to test updates to a game. Stop thinking in the past when a beta meant the game wasn't released. Gaming is changing in many ways. I know a number of other games that have beta programs to test future content, or games that have varying programs of community testing.
  32. There was a public beta throughout FM19's lifecycle too. It's got nothing to do with the quality of the game, but the access that SI can give the player base to live test potential updates. That's only really been a thing in the last two editions. I'd expect it to be the same in FM21 and beyond.
  33. Or the GOP is triaging AZ because Trump can’t stop himself from bashing McCain.
  34. UEFA Champions League - Season 2025/26 Well, it's been a big few months for the folks at Lynx FC. Our first ever trips to the San Siro and the Stadion Munchen have come and gone, and, at the end of the day, we didn't disgrace ourselves. We haven't moved on in the Continental Competitions at all, which is why I'm going to summarise the whole campaign in one post. We didn't start well at all, with a series of disappointing performances through the first half of the campaign, redeemed by our 0-0 draw at home to Milan in the third game. The nicest thing about the draw wa

  36. Vince probably didn't even know about any of it until AJ and his kid made them look like idiots.
  37. February 2022 I'm shocked! We beat Auckland City! They played a full strength side!!
  38. What Bliss means is it’s close between us for second and third, as astonishingly he’s received over a 100 pm’s declaring him the true winner really, and he can’t deny the people what they want
