  1. September 2018 Results We started the month with a win over Monaco. Adama Traore ran in behind their defence and scored to put us in front. Moutinho then whipped in a corner for Jimenez to make it two. Adrien Silva scored a pop to pull one back and Monaco then pressed late on but it was too little too late for them to snatch anything. We then travelled to Selhurst Park to face Palace. Traore continued his good form by scoring a nice curling shot from the edge of the box to take the three points. Palace pushed late on but couldn't find an equaliser. We th
  2. So this save is an attempt to create the definitive European Super League on FM. To start with, I've created four divisions, although more divisions will be added in time. My method for deciding who goes in and who stays out is done by looking at each club's preferred formation (normally the manager's preferred formation) and then calculating an average Current Ability for each side before ranking them and putting them into various divisions. The various European competitions are now Extinct and will cease to exist after the game's first season is completed. After forming the various Leagues I
  3. Hey, having some technical problems. Will let you know if I manage to fix them and get things running again.
  4. February and Early March 2006 La Liga We started the month with a fairly routine win against Zaragoza. Beckham curled in a free-kick to give us the lead before Robinho and Ronaldo broke in the second half, with Ronaldo finishing off the move to secure three points. This was, in truth, a really poor game settled by an early moment of magic from Zidane who lobbed the Sociedad keeper from distance to give us the win. This was an annoying one. We were comfortably on top for 70 minutes and were rewarded through two Robinho goals but Eto'o and Larsson scored twice in th
  5. January 2006 First things first, transfer news. I got given £17 Million to spend which wasn't enough for the high-class addition I would have looked to bring in but was at least enough for me to bring in Kim Kallstrom to give me an extra body in midfield for £11.5 Million La Liga We started the month with a win at home to Vigo which was not as comfortable as the scoreline might suggest. A young David Silva gave Vigo the lead but Raul swiftly equalised. Roberto Carlos was then given a ridiculous red card but a quickfire double from Raul and Robinho means that we took the points any
  6. December 2005 La Liga We started the month with a game against Espanyol which was definitely not one for the neutrals. Still not the worst result in the world for us. *Sighs*, this was a frustrating one. We created chances but didn't take and, to their credit, Sevilla were clinical on the counter-attack as we dropped points at home. I do not like dropping points at home. Fortunately we made up for the defeat against Sevilla by winning a dramatic encounter at the Vicente Calderon. Julio Baptista gave us the lead on the stroke of half-time before Gonzalo Colsa
  7. November 2005 La Liga We started the month with a routine home win against Santander. They were fairly determined opponents and they looked decent until Robinho opened the scoring and for a spell when Oscar Serrano made it 2-1 but we did enough to take the three points. This... was one of those classic frustrating FM games where we completely dominated but were thwarted after a brilliant performance by the Cadiz keeper. Things were thrown after this one. Fortunately we followed the Cadiz with an excellent performance at Malaga as we tore our opponents to shre
  8. October 2005 La Liga One thing which I forgot to mention in my last update is that Ronaldo was injured in an international game in August for 4 months. He's expected back in early December. We started the month with an excellent win at home to Betis. Raul, Baptista and Robinho all linked up well to give us a comfortable win. However, this was followed by another big injury in an international game, with Zidane out for between 3 to 5 months. This win against Mallorca was routine. Cassano scored an amazing overhead kick to open the scoring in what was the most n
  9. I expect more from Chelsea here. On FM05 Arsenal are the best side in the game at the start of the save. Which is fair considering that it was the year after the Invincibles. That naturally makes it kinda hard for Chelsea to do much in game.
  10. To be honest, there's a big drop-off in game for Valencia between FM05 and FM06. On 05, the in-game bookies actually tipped them to win La Liga in the first season and they managed to finish ahead of Barca. On 06 they were predicted to finish 6th. 04-05 was really the end of the Cuper/Benitez Valencia team as they did not thrive under Ranieri.
  11. In other news I've made some small tactical amendments during the month. Firstly, I've switched tackling down to Easy as this game seems to produce a lot of red cards. Secondly, I play in a less Attacking style away from home after some irritating early away results.
  12. August and September 2005 La Liga We started our season with a really poor performance against Deportivo. They were good value for the win as we failed to build on an early goal from David Beckham. This was a fairly routine win over Alaves as we dominated, took the lead through a Zidane goal and then held on after a red card for Michel Salgado. This... was a deeply frustrating one. Robinho put us in front before Ewerthon equalised with a goal out of nowhere. They then had two players sent off but we couldn't find a winner. A red card for Cicinho did not help our
  13. FM 2006 Overview Alright time to move onto FM2006 then. In real life, 2005-06 was a troubled season for Real Madrid. They finished the season in 2nd place behind Rijkaard's Barcelona but they only finished two points above fifth-placed Sevilla and they could have lost their CL spot that season. They were knocked out in the last 16 of the CL by Arsenal and Zaragoza knocked them out of the Copa del Rey in the semi-finals. Wanderley Luxemburgo started the season as Madrid manager but was replaced mid-season by Juan Ramon Lopez Caro. The database I'm using has Lopez Caro in charge so he
  14. Good news, managed to find a bit of time this afternoon this afternoon and look at the problem and I have found the solution I used. The issue is that this solution will only work if you're not using Windows 10. Effectively a lot of games in the mid-00s used a programme called SafeDisc. Windows deemed that this programme was unsafe so they blocked it in 2015. The good news is that if you're using Windows Vista/7/8 you can try the solution mentioned below: (or just delete Update KB3086255 as I did. I would not necessarily recommend deleting updates as a general rule but I did it on
  15. There is something else you can try with 05 but I bookmarked the details on my home computer and I’m abroad right now. I’ll put the details up here when I get back to England. 05 is definitely different to modern FMs. I love the end to end madness, trying to play possession football in 05 is largely pointless. That and the ridiculous number of goals from set pieces. Walter Samuel was a very reliable source of goals for me on 05.
