  1. Don't think they were real players but.... Mark Collis and Farerah Orosco (sp?). Paul Warhurst. All from Champ Man 93 I think
  2. Sounds like you need a hug after reading such a 'horrible' thread.
  3. I only really visit these forums around this time every year and every year I see the same arguments/comments. 'This is the worst ME ever', 'SI dont care about its fanbase' etc etc. Some members heads are so big im surprised they can get in their cars/on the bus every morning. The sense of entitlement is nuts. The simple fact that we have an official forum to voice our gripes (and I have in the past) and the fact that the forum is monitored and responses given is a huge plus. Every year we get updates (database or fixes) and we have become accustomed to this as a given. SI are under no ob
  4. Start of the new season in the Serbian top flight. I won the league title in my first season with the once mighty Red Star. About 4 league games in and my top scorer from the previous season is playing horribly, hasn't scored, missing sitters, looking uninterested. I speak to him, he gets annoyed and wants to leave. Fine, there's the door big lad. With a Champions League final qualifying round 1st leg vs Celtic a week away, I look at my other strikers. Either too young or untested. My fault for relying on striker mentioned above. I need to buy or loan a 'complete forward' otherwise my tacti
  5. My full backs are performing better now that I have got to grips with the individual roles/mentality in relation to my overall team instructions. Ratings have shot up too.
  6. Although morale and motivation are important. Look at Chelsea. League champs last season. This season, same manager, same tactics as last season, no squad overhaul..........
  7. I know how you feel and it is frustrating. Im no Arrigo Sachi (more Barry Fry) but Im a decent tactician (I think). Skipped FM2015 so its been a bit of a 'settling in' period with this version. A few years ago I had a cracking save going, managing Red Star in Serbia. Thought I would give them a try this time round. Started off well, picked my basic formation and tactics and watched the first three games on extended highlights. Started changing things slightly and it all falls apart. Players not happy, board demanding I improve morale, fans not happy. Suddenly Im on the verge of getting sacked
  8. Did try a sneaky bid recently whilst managing Everton. I was shocked when Barca turned down my offer of 20 million plus Tony Hibbert.
  9. My first management game was 'Cup Football' on the Spectrum. I thought it was awesome. Generated players, 4 tactics to choose, pick your team and away you went. A few years later I was introduced to Champ Manager 93 and I was in dreamworld. Spent many hours on that, at the expense of my GCSE's. I can still remember my first 4 signings; Ray Wilkins, Ugo Ehiogu, Mark Collis and Fererah Orosco. I also discovered SWOS at around the same time. I just downloaded SWOS yesterday and was explaining to my wife how awesome it was back in the day......She didnt get it.
  10. This post by 'OneUnited' in another thread sums up my thoughts almost perfectly. I reckon im not the only one on these forums who this applies to. ''This is the first year I've posted in GD when buying the game. It is the first year I've noticed a lot of 'bugs' in the game. Previous years I've stuck to the tactical and team guide forums. I have to say reading everything here has only highlighted a lot of bugs that I'd have otherwise been oblivious to. A friend of mine bought this game the same day as me. When I asked him how he was coping with all the bugs he asked 'what bugs'. Even now, on 1
