  1. Seems to work fine here. Forum migration is always complicated, particularly with such a huge database. All working smoothly.
  2. Great article. As someone who's owned almost every C/FM ever, they are legends. We all have stories, moments in our lives, teams we actually support, that are all thanks to those two guys and a vision. Myself, and the Champions League trophy adorning the cabinet of FC Fylkir, thank you.
  3. I'd like the FM14 UI to return please. *mumbles under breath about sidebar*
  4. To keep this topic meandering off-course slightly, one of my favourite games was Baseball Mogul, and it utilised a series of curves for players potential. Some peaked very young and then nothing. Some had late career bursts. Some did what we'd hope we'd do and gradually improve throughout their career until their bodies let them down. I don't know if FM has a variety of curves for player growth, but it would be a MASSIVE (caps ahoy) help to add variety to the game. Just because your newgen could be the next Zico doesn't mean he will be, or he might but you don't know when it will be. At the moment it's "play them in lots of first team football for the CA boost, max out by 20, enjoy 12 years of world class player". Which is a bit too "read paper, click continue" for my liking.
  5. San Lorenzo I think. He was one of those "obviously better than most" youth intake guys, they accepted 5m. I lost one of my main strikers so stuck him in for fun and he scored. I have a "don't drop in form players" rule and he just never stopped being brilliant. In hundreds of seasons I've never had a player remotely as jaw dropping.
  6. I've only got a couple of screenies (screw you dead SSD), but this guy.. Best player I've ever managed. Well over a goal a game for twenty years.
  7. I think he means drop the high-wage earners to other clubs, replace them with youth players to lower the wage bill.
  8. Depressing how few goals are scored. In a thousand years no team really thrashed another, and no player got more than 5 goals in a game. Hardly likely. Interesting experiment, just a shame the data corruption renders it all a bit unusable for SI to learn from.
