  1. Somehow I missed that quote the first time around. Such a great movie and a lot of quality titles to be wrung from it. "You're an inanimate ****in' object!" "And I realized, **** man, maybe that's what hell is: the entire rest of eternity spent in ****in' Bruges. And I really really hoped I wouldn't die. I really really hoped I wouldn't die." "It's a fairytale town, isn't it? How's a fairytale town not somebody's ****ing thing?" "We only just got off the ****ing train! Could we reserve judgement on Bruges until we've seen the ****ing place? Just reading through the quo
  2. Glad to see the madness hasn't subsided! If anything the goalposts of sanity have slowly morphed -- now hazy, whirling neon windmills wearing strange hats and always twirling twirling twirling towards freedom.
  3. You'd make a horrible magician. Misdirection doesn't really work when it's just you announcing how the trick is done then following it with a "BUT MAYBE I'LL DO IT DIFFERENTLY THIS TIME, WINK WINK, OH GOD AM I SAYING WINK OUT LOUD SHUT UP SHUT UP SHUT UP." You know damn well what you're going to do, good sir!
  4. To be quite honest, you could've been cheating all along. Reloading games, running extra managers, etc. We'd never be the wiser. I don't say that to dump a deluge of cynicism on your parade, only to highlight that there's a fundamental level of trust already established to enjoy your tale. I wouldn't worry too much about a sudden appearance of criticism. You'll get the benefit of doubt from most and any others would've already been able to find a reason to doubt your veracity if they really wanted to, editor or not. Of course none of that necessarily silences the voice in the back of
  5. Quite ridiculous. Well done! One wrinkle you could add to this -- players you've brought through at one club are available to be purchased at the next. So wherever you land next, you could bring along any of the Austrian players you've developed. It's actually a challenge I've pondered trying myself after seeing yours.
  6. That would be a delightful transfer rumor message to see. At least until it turned out to be true and your player does get poached .
  7. @noikeee, good points plus reputation changes from continental competitions can't destabilize domestic league balance. It's likely a tightrope to walk, hence why I wouldn't call it a defect without understanding the reasoning. Maybe not a bug, more of a... extended, single topic "Ask SI" thread? Not that that's a thing anymore.
  8. I think that's going to depend on the type of budget. Straight-to-TV, Lindsay Lohan returns to her Parent Trap roots by playing both Emma-as-Apples and Emma, with a distinct hair part to distinguish roles. Big budget, Oscar-bait though, hmmm... Cheers! I enjoyed writing that far, far too much. Feel free to amalgamate if it suits. That is gas-pedal-to-the-floor, chug-three-Red-Bulls, two-days-into-an-amphetamine-binge football right there. Brakes are for losers who don't know where they're going!
  9. Forget Malmen: A Game of Shadows, I'm holding out for the Lifetime made-for-TV movie... FADE IN EXT. MALMO -- DAY Tree branches with the the first white blossoms of spring contrasts the bright blue sky. Birds chirp occasionally over the murmurs of distant city noises. Beside and below, a city square filled with the accroutrements of a movie set. A brisk breeze ripples the limbs, loosening a petal. Caught in the breeze, the petal flutters the length of the square to a side street closed to traffic but lined with tables filled with indistinguishable food. The breeze ceases, droppi
  10. Having similarly monitored club reputation and read up on it where possible, I think it accrues much, much slower than we realize. While individual matches have an impact, the biggest increases by far come from winning reputable trophies. That's much more difficult in smaller countries when we're not going to win the EL or CL. We're left with the league and the challenge there is that the league reputation is in turn a limiter on club reputation. It's like walking up a hill with a ball and chain shackled to your ankle; even as you make progress it's periodically going to trip you up. With
  11. I don't know how to break this to you, my dear @ManUtd1, but compelling stories require some kind of central conflict! Your continued success is making a mockery of drama. You're practically dancing on Dickens' grave. Verily spiting Virgil. Shaking your fists at Shakespeare. "Once I was going to the store to buy ice cream and stubbed my toe but then I found a winning lottery ticket. Now I own many diamond encrusted jet skis. Also I still got the ice cream. The end." STRUGGLE for god's sake, man! The plot demands it. Play blindfolded, change your keyboard to Cyrillic, something! Dicta
  12. Cheers, Neil! Really appreciate the response. We'll hopefully get a couple of save games posted soon.
