  1. Hi. This looks like my mistake although your the first person to raise the issue. Essentially, Phil Midworth has been incorrectly set as a legend with Hannigan's ID so although Midworth is in the file, Hannigan shows in the game as its linked to his ID. I'll get this changed.
  2. Thanks for your posts regarding Moor Lane. The capacity of Moor Lane was taken from the Non League Directory where the data should have been sourced from the club themselves and was therefore considered correct and included in the game. Having viewed the ground and there is plenty of data to suggest otherwise it does seem fairly clear that the capacity of 8,000 is simply inaccurate.
  3. i know its beside the point but are you sure its accrington you are managing?
  4. I remember this feature in LMA Manager for the PSX, I would imagine it may be very difficult to incorporate.
  5. No Pics yet? Nothing?
  6. Riggott at Cardiff. Seth Johnson retired, think Malcolm Chrsitie has about given up as well.
  7. Steve Finnan Calum Davenport
  8. 'Unibond League Manager 2010'. Yep, I'm very happy
  9. Offer Open Trials One feature that I think would be a great addition for FM2008 would be the ability to advertise an open trial for your club. What this means is players who are free agents would approach you with a view to joining your club on trial, usually in the summer for pre seasobn training. It could be implemented in a similar way for advertising for staff. I know this system is used regularly in real life and would be particularly useful for lower division clubs where player turnover is high.
  10. Short Term Contracts I would like to see the return of the short term, weekly to week 'rolling' contracts that appeared in earlier versions of the series (Champ Man 2001-2002 for instance), and/or the ability to sign players on a non contract basis, with no compensation if you decide to release the player. This would be very helpful and very realistic when managing in the lower leagues, where most players are already registered on a non contract basis, and thus you can bring in and try out many players. It would be helpful as well as you could sign a player on an extended trial period as a non contract or a short term player. Look at Dean Gordon (Torquay), Danny Thomas (Hereford), Danny Cadamarteri (Leicester) and Danny Boshell (Grimsby) for examples of league clubs brining in non contract players.
