    New Save 14.3.0???

    Forest sounds like a good shout (restoring a fallen giant). I also like to develop youngsters (buy low/ sell high). Decisions decisions

    New Save 14.3.0???

    Okay I'll give it a look, cheers
  4. Hi all, I have wanted to start a new save for the best part of a month now but resisted in anticipation of the latest patch. Now that it has dropped (thank you SI) I am not sure who to be! I like to play as Premier league/ Championship standard teams with decent finances. I did read in the papers about takeovers at Charlton, Inter and Valencia amongst others. Have these made it into the patch? Is anyone else starting a new save this weekend? If so who with? I will probably end up starting 2 or 3 new saves, play 6 months then stick with which ever one is going the best. Any thoughts or suggestions welcome. Cheers

    Reading Takeover

    You guys are probably right in which case i will use the editor to fix it should needs be. What to do in the mean time? Need a quick game with a short term goal to see me through to the final patch, any ideas?

    Reading Takeover

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/16677417.stm Granted the takeover is not complete at this precise moment but it will be by March. TSI have made "limited funds" available this month so surely its just a matter of crossing the t's and dotting the i's on the deal. I mean it must be almost certain otherwise why would they make funds available?

    Reading Takeover

    Will the takeover make it into the final patch or will we have to wait until FM13? Reason I ask is I want to start a new save with a championship club and if it is going to be in the final patch I will wait.

    FM06.07,08 patches

    I did try that and found various sites that claim to have it. Trouble is I dont know which sites I can trust. Don't want to download a virus or likewise. What sites have other people used?
  10. Hello everyone, Sorry if this is the wrong place to ask Could some one point me in the right direction. Im looking for patches for these versions of FM. (just the official ones mind) thank you in advance.

    Benzema avaliable for loan 11.3

    Kaka transfer listed on mine after first season £9.5 million, yes please. Had to give him £225,000 a week though.
  12. In the past bought on release day or there abouts. From FM12 onwards after final patch. This is purely because for the past couple of versions i havnt been able to get into a save until after the application of the final patch. Lesson learnt.

    95% of Newgens end up working in Tesco!

    I think the newgen side of the game is pretty good as it is and captures real life well. I love scouting for fresh faces each summer and grabbing the next ** from under the noses of a bitter rival. Sure its frustrating when 25th june comes round and you get a load of Grant Grant's (lol). Makes it that much sweater when you do get a 16 y'old who makes it into the first team. The only thing i dislike about the newgen system is when you get a central defender with great stats except a 4 for jumping. I know with training you can sort it out but if some ones a natural central defender you would expect them to be able to jump more than 2ft off the ground even if they are only 16.

    How much of a tactical tinkerman are you?

    When i take over a club i look at the best players already in the squad (3*+) and see what their natural positions are, creating a formation around that. I then create an attacking and defensive variation on that tactic. Over time as i buy and sell players the tactic changes. In general i change tactic every 2 seasons so ai can not get used to it.

    Football Manager 12

    Pretty sure it was 06. I remember playing as Chelsea and Abramovich saying something along the lines of "i want to see the best players in the world at chelsea. make sure it happens." if you bought players he would say he was happy with the signings and that they were the kind of players he wanted at Chelsea. If you ignored him he would just go out and buy players. In first season he would always for me go out and buy Andrea Pirlo and/ or Esteban Cambiasso. This i didnt mind as both great players and it felt right at the time because he kind of did that in real life with Ballack and Shevchenko. I wouldnt mind it as a feature in future FM's aslong as you were able to turn it on/off like suggested above similar to transfer budget in first window and player masking
