  1. 7 million for mid table finish. i suppose thats more realistic. I'm quite happy with that, as I have no plans to buy anyone in the first transfer window. With the additions of Bentley, Martins and Davies, I'm confident enough for a good season! Started a new game earlier today, had a great high scoring pre season, and played 1 league game against West Brom away so far, which resulted in 1-1. Looking forward to this game save. Will update soon. x
  2. Witsel is a lively player and gets his fair share of assists and goals. Defour sits back and does what he has to do, defends, support and passes to more attacking players. Both players for the future I think though. Few more years theyll be key players.
  3. Lets make this thread a very busy one! Come on guys plenty of updates of your Birmingham games, transfer ins and outs, advice, tactics, issues etc. Ive got this page bookmarked and theres about one new post every 20 times i click on it! I am at the end of November, having had a pretty shaky start to the season. Im sitting 15th, and i dont think it's good enough because I've spent alot of money (alot of transfers were high free's over a couple of years) I signed Christian Eriksen, Fred, Steven Defour, Axel Witsel, Rajko Lekic, and Federico Machedo on loan. All very good players but Im going to need time to let them gel, and break theyre way into the starting 11. My defence has been pretty appalling so far, having conceded 33 goals in 14 games. I dropped Foster and Maik Taylor hasnt been much better so I'm going to have to tweak my tactics in defence. On a positive note I'm through to the semi finals of the carling cup
  4. whats everyone's ambition with birmingham for the season? top 10? europe? i think i'll wait til launch date to start a game with my beloved birmingham. need to find out who needs replacing. im thinking a left back, maybe right back? carr is getting on abit..a striker to partner zigic. and a right winger? how are people doing with birmingham in the game?
  5. well how is this problem going to be fixed? because if im right in saying theres nothing you can do about the full game now as it has gone gold?
  6. happening on my macbook aswell. crashed after completing record signings with birmingham. when you say 'the issue is very much under review?' what do you mean by that? are you going to fix it for the full game release? or update the demo? im gutted ive waited to play the demo for a long time and not it is unplayable.
  7. can i download the fm11 demo via stream using a mac?
  8. i refuse to believe it is a bug. i believe roger johnson is a set piece receiving beast.
  9. ive nearly finished my first season with birmingham city, and roger johnson is on 20 goals! and id say probably every single one is from a header via corner or freekick. have you had any high goalscoring central defenders??
  10. ive just started a game with birmingham and had a 10 mill offer accepted for this kid, but he wont accept a full time or youth contract. what did everyone offer him i.e wages bonuses etc? thanks
  11. anybody started as birmingham with the new patch? how are you getting on? ive just finished my first season and finished 11th. signed zarate for 4 million after his loan ended. feedback please!
  12. i bought fm08 the other day, and im finding it the best of the series yet. ive started with birmingham as their my home team, and doing ok mid-table currently in janurary. can anyone reccomend me a solid CB to replace djourou as his loan finished, i already bought samba in august and need someone to partner him. also need a 20 goal a season cheap striker.
  13. birmingham city done the quad! premier league champions, european champions, fa cup holders, league cup holders. season 11/12
  14. you read that out the mnanual!! cheeky
  15. thanks marc. hows your game going?
