  1. Im fairly sure maintenance fees are higher. I would go into my game and have a look to tell you how much......but my game wont work. Not much chance of getting help on any of the designated threads in this forum by the looks of it either.
  2. Well you cant do any building work on it unless you own it. You usually have to pay rent as well. My Man Cty game contradicts that though. They have expanded to 60k capacity but cant expand anymore because the council wont let them and they have to pay 50% of gate receipts rent. I can only assume the expansion to 60k happens in everyones game.
  3. I had planned on replying to the thread that was just closed a few minutes ago, but steam is slowing my computer down so much it ws locked before I was able to. I haev been trying to play the game for the last two hours and still havent been able. I activated it yia steam because the number provided to activate by phone cant be called from mobiles in Ireland. I created a shortcut which I click on whenever I want to play the game. A box pops up where one of the options is to stay offline - which I click. Then I click the next option wich is launch game. I have being doing that ever since I bought the game....until this evening. When I click it now it comes up as "preparing to launch". I sit and wait for half an hour while its updating or something, then it tells me the game is unavailable try again some other time. The thread I refer to Marc ( I think) said that you can just uninstall steam and play the game normally - why then does it always go through steam when I click the FM shortcut (wont it come up as unavailable or try to bring me through the whole registration process again)? I want to know for definite that it wont ruin my game if I do uninstall. I have tried the instructions in one of stickys at the top of the page but the file given isnt appearing on my computer.
  4. In Dublin Deco would count as a first name if that counts.
  5. As far as i know , grounds have to be up to a certain standard for the top two english divisions (i think there is a couple of years grace though). Just like there are standards for entering the league at all. Wasn't it macclesfield who were denied entry to the league for having a sh*t stadium 7 or 8 years ago? I was disappointed my accrington side were allowed into the prem with a 7000 capacity stadium.

That's what I'd like to see reflected more. Real Madrid are at times bloody stupid, but they have personality, if you get me. </div></BLOCKQUOTE> Yep i get ya loud and clear. But that back up my point about how things change in the future. As most spanish teams have presidents instead of chairmen, there is always going to be different personalities in control every couple of years.
  7. I was very proud of Liverpool 0-1 Accrington Stanley
  8. How far do you take it though? Does it impact on player morale? If he is injured for part of the season and doesnt score 20 goals is he deeply upset? If you already have the league wrapped up adn rest your star so he is fit for champions league games does he request a transfer? If you substitute him on the last league game of the season and he is on 19 goals does he go on strike?
  9. Oh, and madrid arent regretting it YET. Perhaps the reason they are not as dominant as they were in the past is because they sack managers willy nilly (so to speak)

In fact those would be worries I would have too. You mentioned boards changing - well what if a new board doesn't like your style - maybe they'll sack you. Maybe they'll make you change. Would it annoy me if that happened to me, yeah, but it's realistic. It happens to managers. I know things couldn't be concrete - but suggest a team philosophy, let it change, but make us work to change it. If United start the game as an attacking team, and I take over and introduce defensive dour boring football, make the board and fans question it, even hate it, and make sure I get sacked unless I get results that are properly impressive. Keep in mind that Fabio Capello one La Liga, only to get sacked. So far Real aren't regretting that are they? </div></BLOCKQUOTE> Thats what it all comes down to. If you dont get results you will get the boot anyway. Im not arguing with you but im just stating that there are thousands of sugestions that pop up in here that wouldnt really have any affect on the game but some people would like to see implemented. It just comes down to opinions.

That makes the job bloody difficult. Look at it this way, Wenger revolutionised Arsenal's style of play, but a less successful example would be Sammy Lee at Bolton. If you can succeed then you should be able to slowly change a team's avowed style, but certainly the fans would need time to adapt, and the board etc, and the game should reflect that.

As we discussed - Arsenal, late 90's were a world apart from the early 90's. Mourinhos style wouldnt suit Ajax. The points you made about Man utd - (given the week that it is) was completely at odds with how busby built his team. Then the point about fans/chairmen adapting. What if a takeover occured? Just to re-iterate how things change... 7 or 8 years ago would believe fulham or wigan would sack a manager for avoiding relegation from the top flight? In 1992 would newcastle have been devasted to be a mid table prem side? 7 years ago would leeds be sad to lose dennis wise? 27 years ago would Notts Forest have been pleased to get a result against the likes of swansea? I could go on and on, but you get my drift. I really dont think it could work.

  13. Yeah but then wouldnt your example contradict itself if mourinho took over ajax???
  14. I think it influences the amount of season tickets that you can sell 90% hardcore fans = 90% season ticket sales
  15. Whenever I choose indefinite the player gets removed after a year
