  1. Brazilian names are just the gift that keeps on giving. Well it's that time of the month ladies and gentleman where Brazil's Dude will have to not enter the players tunnel and hand over to As$mann to give some stability to the rear.
  2. It shouldn't bother me, but when you have the analysis button on in tactics and you get those lines between players to mean that they have a good partnership. I just don't get why the Central player and wide player never get lines between each other and that you never get a line between a CM and a ST. So for example Gullit and Van Basten in this would never have got that link up line that they clearly had at Milan. If Stevie G played CM and Torres upfront, they would have lost that line. The defensive four of the Arsenal invincibles would have had a big line across all 4. At the risk of
  3. Is there a way of encouraging/advising your player to play for a certain nationality if they have multiple options? I bought a young defender with great potential because he was Italian/Chinese and bought him in the hope China would call him up and he would be a huge merchandising money maker. Since agreeing terms and waiting for him to join the club when he was 18 (agreed when he was 17) he has gone from being Chinese to Italian in his nationality but has not declared for a country or had any caps at all. Is there a way of throwing dim sum at him until he agrees to pl
  4. Has anyone else's youth academy branched out to Pandora and brought in a Na'vi regen?
  5. It'a almost like you've never seen Emile Heskey or Christian Benteke play before. Strikers with 3 for shooting, Benteke possibly a 2?
  6. "Ooooch aye, where are yee from wee lad-ee? " "Get tae f*****k!!"
  7. I played a fair few seasons, consistently upgrading my youth facilities and youth recruitment, with the youth intake players gradually getting better and better. However, irrespective of how many good prospects I either bought or were regens into my youth setup, the HOYD would always say that it was a below average squad with not many players with high potential. So to test it out a bit, I fired up a game with the in game editor and changed every youth player to current ability of about 130-140 and potential ability of 198-200. I still get the same message that its a below average s
  8. Time to test out the medical department!!
  9. It could purely be down to my tactics, playing gegenpress, attacking mentality, shorter passing, play out of defence, counter press, counter and high line, but I am finding that no matter who I play, they have more possession than me but my shots far outweigh theirs. As an example the last match I played the oppo had 56% possession but they had 0 shots on goal and I had 24. Match before that, I had 39% possession but had 21 shots to their 8. I won both games but it does seem odd my possession stats seem so low.
  10. As a Palace fan, we look for the following: High injury proneness; A head shaped like a 50p to add that real magic and intrigue every time they go to head the ball, so you really never know where it's going to go; A player trait of 'Attempts to shoot at goal and puts the ball out for a throw in'; Ridiculously high wages; Finally, scouting reports that have the following recommendation - Currently operating at a League Two level. Has the potential to break the record for the longest period without scoring a goal.
  11. Well I've just started the beta and 'sofa' so good. I'll get my coat.
  12. As someone who bares witness to Christian Benteke every week, I thought he was quite close.
  13. I wonder if real life managers sit there after a game questioning why in their nil nil game they had so many more throw ins than the opposition
  14. As a Crystal Palace fan who sees his team have about 2 shots per game, the shots into the side netting are really quite exciting and a new experience! The only bugbear I have is that when my cb hoofs it upfield, Benteke controls it. The following missed 1 on 1, however, is incredibly accurate. If SI could get his shots to go out for a throw in though, that would only add to the realism.
  15. I know they say the kids these days are growing up quicker, but a full on beard
