  4. Don't know if it's been mentioned already but Alberto Aquilani has been handed the number 15 shirt for the coming season. http://www.liverpoolfc.tv/team/first-team/player/15-alberto-aquilani
  5. FM08, top of the league last game of the season. Needed to at least draw to win the title or else would lose out to Arsenal providing they won their game. I lost my game and having looked at the latest scores, looked like the league too. Went through to continue and found out Arsenal had conceded 93rd minute to hand me the title. Couple of seasons later and the same team was trying to avoid relegation (think it was West Brom, can't be sure), having wrapped up the league and a CL final to look forward too so played a weakened side. 'Cause I'm good like that.
  6. Thank you so much! Stuck in 7th in the league with Liverpool, nearly out of the CL, out of the FA cup and with a LC final against Arsenal. Changed to your tactic, tweaked it slightly because of lack of strikers, now a 4-1-2-1-2 with an AM instead of a Deep Lying forward. Won 4 out of 4 so far, Juve next is the big test.
  7. Playing Reading. Just beaten Barnsley 1-0 to keep me in the auto promotion spots, only 2 points off leaders Newcastle.
  8. Liverpool 4 Hull 1 Sitting pretty so far, 1 point behind leaders Chelsea in early Nov.
  9. Absolutely brilliant training schedule, been using for a couple of months (in game) and players are already starting to show increases in their stats. Screenshot: http://i293.photobucket.com/albums/mm62/PhilP1208/carratrainingincrease.jpg
  10. I'd like the ability to field weakened teams in the last games of the season and not have it affect confidence if we lose badly. Example: You win the league with games to spare. You decide instead of risking your best players in meaningless games, you field the reserves. Have a team-talk included along the lines of "Playing for a final place". Players with high motivation will play blinders to try and get in the cup final 11. Also, draw criticism from managers or become friendly with ones, like losing to a team that goes on to stay up, or losing to a team and another qualifying for the CL/EL or playoffs depending on which league.

  12. I must admit a lot of things here I have done myself. Including introducing new signing to the "fans" (fans being the household cat) Losing it during a press conference(screaming at the screen, storm out etc.) Do the cup draws like the announcer on TV. Commentate on big games. Also, if a song is playing and I lose the game, that song doesn't get played again during that save. Must admit, never talked to family about FM though. I do have friends who play and these forums for that.
  13. AC MILAN 3 Barcelona 1 CL Qtr Final 1st Leg 1 nil down at half time, used team talk "we must get result, no excuses". Scored 3 in last 5 mins. Including a 90th minute free kick after the Barce keeper handled outside the area.(Only got a yellow)
