  1. It was quite indepth with you having to choose the the sponsors and build up the stadium but CM was just more realistic.
  2. I’ll have to give it a go just for commentary. I remember thinking how revolutionary it was back then. cheers!
  3. I must admit, I do not remember the poster. Do you remember Premier Manager? At school you were either a Premier Manager guy or CM guy.
  4. Which game had the commentators that you could actually hear? I really want to play that. Barring that, I'd like to find a video of someone playing on Youtube so I can see what it's all about.
  5. I've only just discovered (from reading a CM3 topic, here) that playing 235 is the formation to play. I've won everything in domestic competitions (just started Europe now). When I first got the game I was playing a conventional 442. What a waste! Loved CM Italia. It came out during the height of the whole Italian football craze on Channel 4. It seemed so exotic managing teams that had fancy foreign players in it.
  6. Not sure if this counts but I've recently started playing CM 93 again. It brought back a lot of fun memories. Mostly of not getting so damn angry at being so awful at the game.
  7. Arrigo Sacchi. I've not implemented his 442 style yet though. I just don't have the players to pull it off successfully.
  8. More a superstition this one but I make sure that my cursor is on my team's side when the match lineup screen appears between highlights to make sure the opposition don't win. I know it doesn't work but I can't help it.
  9. No worries, I neglected to say I'm on the iPad so I won't be able to do so. Thanks, anyway, mate.
  10. In all honesty, I'll probably end up smashing my laptop but that feature it would definitely be a step in the right direction. It's taken me 25 years (can't believe the game has been going on for that long)! to just get to grips with tactics without having to watch a million videos. The presets have been great.
  11. I can't believe I'm saying this as I'm hopeless at the game but I think it would be a good feature. Maybe just understanding that, I don't know, I like to attack down the wings constantly so the AI. now cuts out my supply to the wings (or is that what HUNT3R meant? @HUNT3R
  12. So, the AI don't actually learn your tactics but what do they do to stop you from playing successfully. It seems around the Christmas period and March that I have to change tactics because my system isn't working. Surely the AI should know what you're doing by then as that's what happens in real life but I'm reading from people who know what they're talking about that it doesn't. I'm not having injuries, although I might have some bad form from 1 or 2 players which can contribute to losses. I'm not having a go as I'm really enjoying the game I'm just curious to find out what factors contribute to having your team go on a seemingly bad run. I've countered it by playing different tactics assuming the AI 'as worked me out'.
  13. Sorry, does that mean I have an option of having a larger database (like the full game gives you options)? Or do I need to load more leagues? I'll live with it as I'm having a good game at the moment and don't want to start again but it would be good to know for future reference. Thanks.
  14. I'm playing Touch but this really applies to the Tactics element of the game as I believe it's exactly the same in the full game. I've been playing FM since '93 and enjoyed it a lot but when the slider system was introduced, it lost me. I couldn't get my head around it. Then the Tactical Creator was implemented which was a bit better but I still struggled. This new system introduced is so much better. The presets are all there for how I want to play and all I need to do is adjust roles and sometimes duties. No longer do I need to go to the tactical forum or watch videos to understand how tactics work or how to implement them. I can now just adjust things depending on the opposition or how the match is going. Some veterans might now think the game is too easy (it might be if I'm doing well) but for me it's almost perfect. Tactics drove me nuts before but now I completely understand them. I may never win the league but at least I understand what's going on with the tactics now.
  15. Is the database smaller in Touch? Seems that when I make a general search , e.g. for a striker with no other attributes looked for I seem to get a long list of players who are in the championship. I'm playing as Everton and have the box "Interested in signing" ticked.
