  1. Last FM I played was FM 2005 on the PC, then I didn't play for 10 years till FMH2015. Have to say FM really improved over that time. FMH2015(which I initially deleted in 2015), before reinstalling from my purchase history- everything is far more logical. 2005, you would have form drops followed by long sequences of losses, you would have random players unhappy without really knowing why. Now- and there's a good coach verdict after explaining positives and negatives of the games, different types of midfielder than a generic midfielder in 2005. Pleased they took out half time team talks, that was randomising things too much, is it your fixtures or the team talk which made the victory? Anyway far better game, good to have something addicting to play on the iPad. Amongst all the casual 5 minute games.
  2. Most of the 3rd based teams got through on 4 points, 3 points was always a gamble, just perhaps fortunate Portugal was in the later groups to see which teams were worse and going out.
  3. I'm with you given1legend. On the draws thing, it should probably be pointed England almost drew all 3. Had they drawn all 3, I think it would be not be a stretch of the imagination to say most people would say they deserved to be out.
  4. Football is primarily about offence and defence in 90 mins. The extra time is when nothing can be decided between two sides and extra time is given as an opportunity to get an edge over the other. But you are a fan of Portugal, and I won't deride that. I just have a far different opinion.
  5. A team that drew matches. I never hear of a team in the premiership persistently drawing matches as an impressive team.
  6. 6/10, had it been really bad I probably would have lost interest before the final. It did have one or two great matches, and it was good to see a good Wales side, a good Iceland team, an improving but ultimately failing Belgium, and the normal top tournament sides.
  7. I think Portugal 'carried' Ronaldo. I hope it's not looked back and seen Ronaldo led Portugal to the Euro cup. When it's more the case that the whole organisation, defence and midfield were a key part behind the victory.
  8. Only now found out who won the tournament. I had turned off. They really ought to start making all premiership games 90 mins add extra time, see if the teams that draw all the time might be true winners of the premier league.
  9. well- this final has inspired me to write a book and compose a symphony. Because it's been that boring.
  10. This will be a good game
  11. Pre-Match wanted France to win. End of first half wanted Germany to win. Then middle of second half, you just love both sides. Germany with their never say die. France with their strong resolute defence. I think another day Germany might have won.
  12. Thank fook for France vs Germany
  13. Still amazed how dominant Germans were, 70% possession, France defended well. Useful bit of luck for France will make this second half good. Ozil's face as the French scored. Germans really craving this Euro tournament win.
  14. Yeah I did a calculation- odds to quality 10/11 and predicting the odds of France winning the cup against Portugal as about 4/6 and yes this is correct it does equate to more or less to 2/1. With a marginal advantage if the odds are 4/6 or higher should they get to the final and have a 'lift the trophy' odds as that.
  15. This took ages for a thread to be created! I thought wtf is happening, massive match that people will be talking about for 3 days prior to it and no thread. Anyway tldr: come on France.
