  1. Ah fair enough, thanks for the reply anyway, to be honest though the cross save feature wasn't that important to me as I couldn't save tactics on the vita I loaded into the game from PC using cross play...which kind of spoilt the feature.
  2. With FM Classic living on through iOS and Android, is there any chance of a release for vita for those of us who got the 2014 edition? if not in a full release perhaps a dlc database update/ start date change? (note Fifa have been churning out these db update editions for the past 3-4 years on vita without any real game improvements and still seem to be making sales, so I don't think other vita owners will be too bothered with just a dlc update...unless it's priced at £30 lol)
  3. Any chance of the Ipad 3 or 4 being supported in future for FMC 15? and come midnight can I try it anyway on ipad 3 or will it probably just not install? cheers.

    Sheffield United After Leaving Brentford early in the season, i took over struggling giants Sheffield United, 19th in league 1, and thanks to my great signings and leadership, i managed to turn their season around and secure a 4th placed finish and promotion to the championship via the playoffs, this after a 12 game win streak to finish the regular season, where my team only failed by 5 points to go up automatically. Im highly confident about my team's chances in this season's championship, despite only aiming for a mid table finish, my side have the quality i feel to make a big impact on the league.

    Brentford After a good start with Bristol City last season, going top after the first 5 games, an unfortunate run of form, saw me slip into mid table, and given the expectations i had set myself for the season i decided to resign and despite being given the chance to manage QPR in the same division took a short break from the clan. In my absence for some reason my profile ended up taking over league 2 MK Dons, who though i would have been willing to give a crack at managing, by the time i returned to the clan, the entire team had not trained for 3months as the club had been staffless, so regardless of the signings i made which ultimately saved the club from relegation to the conference, i quit after a month in charge after setting their ship on course to safety and took over the reigns of relegation threatened Brentford in league 1 for the remainder of the season. With the club in the Bottom 4 i managed to rally the team and secure safety with 2 games to go, finishing 17th having taken charge with the club 21st and heading for league 2. Situation before my arrival at Brentford: Having kept the club up, with the help of my former Brighton player Simon Mensing and my new right hand man Rob Hulse, i've restructured the club, bringing in an array of highly talented players, including; Craig Bellamy, Matias Lepillier, Adam Rooney, Yves Ma-Kalambay, Aaron Martin and Darcy Blake to name but a few. Despite playing safe and only telling the board to expect a mid table finish on the modest budget i've been given, im very confident in the ability of the squad i've assembled for the Bees and hope to achieve much more come the end of the season.

    Bristol City After my premature dismissal at Brighton and link up with Bristol City, it was generally a case of steadying the ship and preparing for next season, and though at some points it did look like my team could make a run to the play offs, my side finished short by a fair amount in 12th, but still an improvement on the potential relegation battle that could have ensued at the club before i joined. The main problem with my new side has been a lack of goals, (top scorer last season with 27 in the league Nicky Maynard only managing about 13 this season) and also a lack of a high quality goal keeper following David James's release and an aging defence. As you can see these problems lead to some rather inconsistent form in the latter half of the season: However, the rebuilding work for this season has started very well, signing stars such Alex Smithies from Huddersfield, Ferrie Bodde from Osasuna, Stephen Crainey from Blackpool and more, whilst getting rid of over paid, dead weight in the squad such as Marvin Elliot, Brett Pittman and Martin Woolford. Things are looking good for the new season, and congratulations to Mike, who achieved so much by stretching lowly Doncaster's resources to the limit, winning the fa cup and league double, and Jonno who finally secured automatic promotion on the final day, with the GDP of a small country to finance it, though im pretty sure i've never seen a tactic with as many back tracking arrows as his. Other positives were finishing well above Brighton who got what they deserved for stabbing me in the back, finishing 17th, back to the good old days for them i guess.

    Bristol City After results failed to improve, but i was by no means out of the promotion hunt, only 3 points off the playoffs, the Brighton Board finally lost patience with me on October the 6th and rewarded my efforts at the club with the sack, replacing me with metrosexual Dutch icon Frans Adelaar. After a week or two out of work however, Bristol City (a city who's only real contribution to British history is being the center of the 18th century slave trade...), a side who were also very strong and unlucky to not be promoted last season, saw the lack of vision shown by the Brighton board and offered me the reigns of a club languishing in 16th but by no means out of reach of the top 6 and i am unbeaten in my first 6 games and the future is looking bright for the robins, who i hope i can take to the big time if not this season then definately next and most likely at the seagulls expense..

    Brighton Season 2 Update: After overhauling and improving the quad in the summer following playoff defeat, My team started excellently winning its first 5 matches with style, crushing Jonno's Southampton away and beating Mike's Doncaster on the first day, this run saw me go top, but then a freak loss to AFC wimbledon on penalties by 1 goal in the league cup....following failure to secure victory despite 27 shots on their goal....has seen 3 losses and a draw in the league against lesser opposition. Nevertheless i remain optimistic that i can achieve promotion this season and make my mizerly board happy.... who this season demanded no less than promotion for a cut wage budget.....and a 10k transfer budget; in the alien world football chairmen are from this is ofcourse an easy task, but i anticipated a struggle this season which as at ipswich in the last clan game, i thought I had avoided quite simply because of my excellent bargin hunting as usual in the transfer market...anyway though i doubt the sack if i come up short this season im still not 100% confident i don't have a board waiting to stab me in the back like in the last fm. Transfers 12/13:

    Brighton A dramatic end at the top and bottom of the table, saw my Brighton side reach the playoffs finishing 4th, after i won 5 of my last 7 games, only to be knocked out unfortunately 2-0 on aggregate by a Birmingham City side, who scored two controversial goals to defeat me; a handball by Nicola Zigic who obviously was confusing which sport he was playing and a blatantly offside goal to round things off. Star striker Craig Mackail-Smith despite his best efforts was not able to make an impact in the second leg as the 20 goal man was defied by Birmingham's 11 behind the ball approach. Controversy aside though im still pretty proud of my achievements this season and i think i can definately build on my performance last season and go the full distance this time with a more youthfull and talented squad being assembled, replacing the aging Heidar Helguson with Ched Evans and versatile and hard working players such as Joey O'Brien and Lee Williamson joining to give my side a more proffesional and hopefully more consistent approach. Final Fixtures: At the other end of the table, there was a dramatic end to the season where with the final fixtures approaching, it looked as though either Jamie's Barnsley or Darren Ferguson's Peterborough would stay up with Coventry already doomed and Gordon Strachen's Derby County looking like they were going the same way. A truely unpredictable 3-way tussle saw, against the odds, Derby County overhaul an unlucky Jamie and an overconfident Darren Ferguson with only a game to go. Given their fate had been in their own hands, the posh owner axed Ferguson with the club's fate confirmed, but Jamie stays on at Barnsley looking to bounce back to the championship at the first attempt having been unable, ultimately, to turn around a slide down the league started under Keith Hill after joining in January. Mike did a good job finishing in the top half of the table this season it should be noted with a shoe string budget at Doncaster, and Southampton had a solid season despite many signings such as Rob Hulse flopping. Cardiff unfortunatelly spent much of the season in the lower reaches of the table despite a late run of good form towards the end of the season.

    Brighton Despite enduring a terrible run of form over the turn of the year, i was still 1st/2nd at the start of January and my board gave me the option of aiming for automatic promotion, in return for a big budget increase which i took in hope of turning around my team after its drop in fortune. http://img35.imageshack.us/img35/2043/jamesnewsinbox.png I spent heavily following this and a massive injury crisis, signing stars such as paddy mcourt and spending a record fee on Andy King from leicester, however it has been my deadline day signings from manu who have been most impressive recently, despite still inconsistent form seeing me in 5th with only a few games of the season remaining. Transfers: http://img207.imageshack.us/img207/4323/brightontransfershistor.png Fixtures: Table: While it will be a close run thing, i feel my team has turned a corner with a recent 3-0 win over Leeds, and should secure at least a playoff place, so im fairly confident approaching the final few games.

    Brighton A great start to the season has seen me win all but one of my first 6 games against league leaders Hull City. After securing some fantastic signings in the transfer market i've assembled a high quality team that, though only expected to achieve a mid table finish, could well challenge for automatic promotion first season. Tomas Cerny and Simon Mensing, the stars of Hamilton Academicals recent spell in the SPL were cheap bargins, as was former Inter Milan and Italy star Marco Materazzi who is still brilliant even at 38. The other members of the clan seem to have gotten off to decent starts this season, and its difficult to rule out anyone else from making a possible push first season for the playoffs particularly Cardiff and Southampton who spent fairly big money, notably Jonno's 1m+ outlay on Rob Hulse, a striker coming in on the back of 2 goals in 24 or so league games last season for QPR....

    Brighton And Hove Albion FC After an interesting draw for the teams this year, i drew Brighton, a team who's old stadium growing up was only a few minutes away from where i used to live and who also were a joke for the last decade or so, ironically donning the sponsor 'SKINT' ,while in financial crisis, a particular highlight, and their previous ground at the Withdean being the second worst ground in the UK only behind Gillingham's Priestfield (groundshared for two years before the move to the Withdean in 1999). The club's greatest moment was reaching the FA cup final in 1983, losing to Manchester United, and had a short spell in the top flight 1979-83, with stars such as Mark Lawrensen and Gordon Smith. Having said that, despite staring relegation to league 2 in the face a few seasons ago when i last saw them, Brighton appear to be a team on the up, moving into a new 22,00 capacity ground this season, which could in the near future be upped to near 30,000 and a promising playing squad on the back of a league 1 championship win. With decent funds provided to me this season, one of the few obstacles facing me is the clubs fairly low rep for attracting players, but despite this i have a fairly good transfer budget and am confident i can at least achieve a midtable finish with my new side and maybe challenge for the playoffs, as this is i guess my local team and my favourite team i hope to have a long and successful spell on the south coast. Transfer Budget for season: £2m Wage Budget: £97k

    Ipswich Town Season 4 Review After a short winless run around new year my Ipswich team had a decent end to the season and ensured a midtable finish only missing out narrowly on a top half finish in 11th. As i leave Ipswich this season for Chelsea, i have left a club in fantastic financial health, now owning its own ground and facilities and with a high quality mid table side, and i hope my successor can keep the good work going there. As signings go i had a fair few master strokes with Ipswich, Ryan Babel proved an epic bargin on a free, and was my teams star player throughout the season and i would not be surprised if he won signing of the season for the prem. Other signings such as Dirk Kuyt, Owen Hargreaves on loan, Marcus Berg were all fairly cheap and i only had a net spend for the season of about 2m, the first time i hadn't made a gain through transfer dealings in a season at Town. Anyway I look forwards greatly to leading my new team to greatness in Chelsea who narrowly missed out on Europe last season under caretaker manager Michael Emenalo, and i am hopeful of breaking the dominance of Mikes Middlesbrough.
