  1. This is on FM 2007, haven't encountered this type of injury yet. I believe future versions label this a "freak domestic accident". Luckily, it won't be damage, his (Nigerian regen striker, 18) development is going nowhere, coupled with a Slack personality.
  2. It is winter break and we need to get match fitness.
  3. First of all, congratulations for your epic career. I must admit however, that I have started following you only when you took over Man Utd, but one day I took time and have read your story from the start and I enjoyed it even more. Especially because it is FM 2007 and because as you said, all the side stories you had as you had fully loaded game. I hope you will return, either in FM 2007 somehow or in some other CM/FM editions. Or Premier manager. Do not know if it is the same game, but I have played 1997 edition of Premier manager, when you can regularly expand your stadion, parking lo
  4. If not counting Premier Manager 97, my CM career started at Christmas 1997 when I became proud owner of CM 97/98. Shocked of how many data there is, teams, stadium backgrounds etc. Along FM 2007, CM 97/98 is my second most played CM/FM game. So, winter holidays in 1997 and I started a new fresh career with Barca. At that time my rookie manager career opted for only one formation – 4-3-3. At that time I haven't yet known that this is also Barca's DNK. In attack there was trio of Stoichkov-Sonny Anderson- Giovanni, while Rivaldo played somewhere in midfield three. I played only one s
  5. Brazilian downfall spiral in FM 2007, as shown in March 2194 FIFA rankings (87th place). The country ready to host the next World Cup, celebrating 200 years from winning it in USA, is facing the biggest crisis in history, which has probably reached its peak already last year at the home Confederations cup, where the descendants of Cafu, Romario, Bebeto etc. lost all three games - 0:4, 0:4, 0:2.
  6. Not exactly a meme - my own work; was thinking lately how I perceive players in FM, especially regens. Exaggeration included. (or not?).
  7. @Weston: I tried a test by adding new manager of France, checked, and-no, he isn't eligible. . Was also surprised, checked Wikipedia and found the below, so maybe in FMs after 2009 he would be eligible. It is really sad for him. Also Mayotte rarely play any matches, because it is not part of FIFA, the last one in my save was played in March 2157. @Hovis Dexter: I have used successive profiles due to maintaining realism, so sadly my current man is only 75.
  8. (FM 2007) Is this the best ever uncapped player in history? Currently among top 3 if not the best in the world.
  9. Didn't expect that either, despite remembering that scoring in international matches is much harder due to more defensive football. I fear for both Js (James and Jones). May the Sun forget their sins.
  10. * I never save the game before away matches and after a loss. Before saving, all news items must be read and must not involve any topic to respond to (e.g. send ill players home, transfer enquiries...) * When the game is saving, I stand up and turn away, because even slight breath can cause the save to corrupt. *After the game is saved, I must head to the "Assistant report of team talk's feedback" to ensure my players have got adequate teamtalk and that the teamtalk was correct before match, half- and fulltime. This is to ensure the morale is still good before quitting. * Befor
  11. It's from FM 2007, or should I say #whyidontplayfm20yet. My team got the second built stadium in this save, and for the first time-now the arena with a gigantic capacity of 175k- is named after me. The previous stadium was named in general terms (Partizan stadium), lasted from 2104-2189 with a capacity of almost 145k. While the original stadium (from the start of the save) got its final expansion in the last decades of 21th century- 120.500 seats. Also, for the first time, my team gained Worldwide reputation. Not sure, why, because for all that time I got Continental at maximum and
  12. Congratulations for the title, another fantastic update! Rabatti is a rarely seen beast. Do his low Composure and Concentration affect his performances at all (like in terms of Mistakes/Mistakes leading to goals)?
  13. Congratulations! Regarding the opposition parking the bus-have you ever experienced a situation at home, when the AI starts a defensive 4-4-2 with no arrows and then in case of an injury (even at your team) the AI subs off one of its strikers and goes ultra defensive 5-4-1 even when the result is e.g. still 0-0 and the minute is 5th? The high average ratings of your DC's is probably due to their percentage of aerial battles won. Countless of times these ratings deceived even me and I continued to play them- closing one eye even when they made costly mistakes. Yeah, in regen era, fi
  14. Congratulations for the improvement and CL football. Next season with no particular goal droughts, you can challenge for top honours. What strikes me- is quite average rating for your best striker despite his 20 goals scored. What is his conversion rate? (goals vs total shots) You were right when you built physical strong team, in FM 2007 this is vital in all areas of the pitch. Sometimes it is better to have a good aerial ability rather than technical prowess, especially in central midfield.
  15. I second that. One thing that keeps me motivated in a save is also observing the international environment, nothing better than big shocks at Euro / WC qualifying and smaller teams qualifying at the major tournament. I reread the previous page again and noticed - Malta pulled a major upset. Who is their best player, do they have full team or are they a team of grey players? (sorry in case I missed that). Also-do you have international matches simulated in full detail or default? EDIT: Congraulations to your changes of fortunes, seems like your away form has vastly improved. What
