  1. Presumably 26 characters (including spaces) is the new limit for user names; will it be possible to have them changed by one of the mods?
  2. Actually I quite like the Paradox forum style; as long as it doesn't extend to Karma points (or similar).
  3. Before you push the button on this, have a really close look at what's going on over at Bethesda's forums. Calling that process a disaster would be a compliment.
  4. FMH2015 Android Samsung Galaxy S2 During a match, when a player is moved 'position' (e.g. from midfield to forward line; from LB to CB) when changing formations using the drop-down list in the in-match tactics option, the players' selectable roles are those from their original position. Substituting a player does not update the selectable roles. Restarting a match and re-entering the tactics screen does not update the selectable roles. This can be reset by sliding any player on the 'Formation and Subs.' screen out of position and back again, even when multiple players have the incorrect roles This does not happen when changing formations from the main tactics screen outside of a match. Recreation v1 Start a match (or be in a match) in a 4-2-3-1 formation Enter tactics screen Change the formation to 4-4-2 attacking using the drop-down menu Attempt to change the player role of the player with the 'poacher' i.e. the player on the left of the attacking two: That player will only have selectable player roles for the advanced midfielder' Recreation v2 (more exaggerated example) Start a match (or be in a match) with a 4-4-2 attacking formation Enter tactics screen Change the formation to 3-5-2 attacking using the drop-down menu Attempt to change the roles of (from left to right) CB1 - has only full back roles selectable CB2 - has full back roles selectable LM - has CB roles CM1 - wide mid roles CM2 - wide mid roles RM - CM roles AM - Wide mid roles ST1 - CM roles ST2 (and GK) - correct roles
  5. Whilst the mods are on the rampage, would they mind amending the thread title? I've been mentally adding "There's clothes all over the floor and is that an old dinner plate?" every time I read it.
  6. Puts him on a level as such footballing luminaries as Franco Di Santo.
  7. Burley has never forgiven Chelsea for not playing in the '97 FA Cup final. A lot of Chelsea fans have never forgiven Burley for setting up Beckham in the FA Cup semi at Villa Park v Man U, so the feeling is mutual.
  8. I trust we are all cheering on Brentford tonight? Local team, terraces, within 5 miles of the Bridge and we share the same opinion of that team from Acton...
  9. Very sad news announced before kickoff - Dave Sexton, manager of Chelsea's 1970 FA Cup winning side and the 1971 European Cup Winners Cup winners, has died aged 82. Given a noisy and respectful minute's appreciation by the fans.
  10. Or, more to the point, this thread has attracted a lot of, erm, old school GQ/GD posters who have migrated to other parts of the forum. Until prompted by crouchy to make a cameo appearance. Anyway: to the questions It's one of only 5 or 6 game series I keep coming back to play. So it must still do something for me!(The others are Civilisation, FIFA, the Total War Series, Mass Effect, Sim City (though not any more ) and Gran Turismo/Forza Motorsport (depending which brand of console I own at the time) Disagree with this. It can still eat up an evening or turn a late night into an early morning with the 'just one more match' feeling. Maybe not too many, but certainly too many features that take up too much time where you don't feel that you have too much control over their effects. My main bugbear. As time has gone by the amount of time it takes to get through a season has gone from one night, to one week, to the current version where it takes a month just to get through one season; and I'm certainly not micro-managing. Disagree. It might intimidate new players, but I've had time to adapt to the incremental changes over the years. Or even decades Can't agree with this. I replayed CM0102 recently and I was getting frustrated at the lack of control. Using your imagination might be great but I like seeing the 3-D pitch and the 'realistic' tactics. Not during the seaon, but I agree with a previous comment that pre-season is just a miserable slog now, whereas in the past you could at least seek excitement in what was basically a transfer free-for-all. If there was a happy medium that allowed the game to be as detailed and thorough as it is now but allowed me to run through a season over five or six nights, and not 20+, then I'd be delighted. I was never much cop at the earlier CM's, and have enjoyed most success in the FM07 and FM10 when you could see problems in your line up and be more creative about how to deal with them.
  11. Brilliant. Glad this is back - and I'm delighted to the the scope and scale of the experiment has expanded as well. This experiment should be much more rigorous than 07, but hopefully not too overwheming to manage. My predictions: - The Sheriffs will win a major trophy before the Bandits (an ambitious owner who won't accept failure means that sooner or later they'll stumble over a very good manager) - The Bandits will be very, very successful as time passes as the flaws of the 07 management have been ironed out. - Very few of the Bandits players will play for their second country... although the Half-Welsh Idiot is more likely to if he cant get into the English side (the other country's reputations are too low) - Each save will take about an hour after five seasons. Good luck Kip!
