  1. Sorry to bring it back up, but am I the only one who's had a sudden inability to watch the 3D match since the patch then? Edit SORTED!
  2. Sorry if i missed it already, but im playing on a mac and since the 9.2 update, the 3D match view is jerky and headache-inducing to watch. It was perfectly smooth on the original install. I turned off 'threading', whatever that is. Still jerky. Anyone else have this problem or a solution to it? I'd be extremely grateful - it was brilliant watching the first lot of games in cool 3D animation. Thanks guys. Goon.
  3. kerlon is a pratt. I made him unhappy by offering for him cause his contract was running out. He still signed a new one and was still unhappy... His team mate something oliveira is decent too. Manuel Fernandes has brilliant stats and is the centre of my squad. Also, oscar ustari (GK) can be picked up at the start of the game. Very young and VERY good keeper.
  4. 2009 and i can only ever remember penalties being missed twice.
  5. using this method makes me worry that the team may quickly offer the player a new contract. I usually just offer the contract direct to keep the team out of the loop.
  6. I had an idea, though i think it would more likely be one for the pc version only. I think when agreeing to an offer for a player you should have an option to explain to the player, for example, tell them you only agreed because the offer was from a big club and you want whats best for the player. Then its down to their loyalty as to whether or not they leave. On the other hand you could tell them they have no place in your squad and effectively push them out.
  7. I've got a keeper called Davide Conti, 19 years old, from palermo i think. I'm sure hes a re-gen cause i couldnt find him in the pc version at the start of the season. I signed him on a bosman (cause i missed out on oscar ustari) and he went straight into the squad. Quality keeper and a star in the making. Oh and he got man of the match in four of his first five games.
  8. if you offer players contracts, you often have to pay compensation. Does bidding £0 through the team get around this?
  9. Kerlon. Wow look at the stats on this youngster. Bought theo walcott at the start and hes great. Worth 20mil now. Also manuel fernandes. Theres some goalkeepers; david conti and a guy whose name i forget but he just got bought by liverpool in my game for about 16.5mil. Plays in argentina for independiente and is very young and has good stats. How come my scouts dont pick up these guys? they only recommend me mid-30s players with mediocre stats.
  10. I did that with sol campbell. He was gettin paid 50k and now gets about 8. Also when fernando torres wouldnt accept my max wage when he was out of contract. No one would sign him and he eventually lowered his asking wage. It's a bit unrealistic though (one of the most unrealistic about this game) that these quality players go out of contract and no-one signs them.
  11. Look a bit more carefully. I checked two different spanish teams and they had the same greyed out players. On a similar note, i found a brazilian team (Cruzeiro is it?) with all greyed out players except for about 2 or 3 youngsters with some amazing stats. Go find them!
  12. Towards the end of the season, search the player database for players whos contract is almost expired. Instead of "make offer" it says "approach". You can now offer them contracts and pay nothing to the team if they except (although sometimes theres compensation of a few 100k). I just signed: Glen Johnson Lassana Diarra Fabrice Muamba Sergio Peter Edmilson and i could have snapped up Fernando torres and gianluigi buffon if my cheapskate board would give me a higher wage budget. Even if you dont want them, a lot of them are worth signing so you can sell them and get a heap o' cash. Gerrard's contract runs out at the end of the season. Im keeping an eye open. If liverpool fail to negotiate then im in there!

  14. I'm managing the "rich" portsmouth and doing pretty well. I came fifth and then second even though im only expected to battle relegation and i got a manager of the year award (or runner-up) as well as getting pretty far in other competitions (but no wins). However, my "rich" board gives me no more than about £7mil a year and ignore all my requests for more. Also, wakes are limited to 27k or 33k for special occasions although the mugs were paying sol campbell 50k (until i knocked him off his high horse). What do i have to do to squeeze some money out of the tightwads? its no surprise their rich considering how little cash they give me!
