  1. No as it allows editing during a game if you have not prevented ingame editing at the start of your save.
  2. I'm the same as warlock wages mean nothing to me. As long as my club are doing well and I'm getting a decent transfer budget I'm not bothered, it's not as if you can spend it on fast cars and big houses.
  3. Those circles are just indicators they don't mean much in my view as to whether a player is any good in that role, I've been playing Rashford on the right and he is only competent there but he still gives more than his fair share of assists (he is also good at sneaking a fair few goals on the blindside of defenders). If he is doing a good job for you then what's the problem.
  4. I would have to agree with you on that one especially when he is in double figures on my team and I haven't reached Jan in the first season yet. However, I have noticed he can be a little inconsistent but he is still young to be fair. Rooney looks to have got over his injury problems for now but I just can't seem to find a place for him in my side what with the form of Thomas and Gaffney. Still top of the league and with a six point gap opened up between 1st and 2nd place. League clubs are already starting to sniff round my players and I'm expecting some bids to come in once the transfer window for the league clubs opens.
  5. I've started a Salford save also and currently sit top of the league at the beginning of November. Unfortunately I've not had the chance to see how well Rooney performs at this level as he seems to have developed an injury problem so far he has managed just 4 starts and 4 subs appearances (he has managed 3 goals) in the league thankfully I managed to pick up a young Welshman (21) callend Jamie Thomas (formerly of Burnley) on a free and he has more than made up for Rooney with a return of 13 goals in 20 appearances (includes sub) as has Gafney with 16 goals. I lost Scott Wiseman at RB to a pre-season broken leg which lead to his retirement without even managing a game leading to me scrabbling around looking for a half decent RB, a search which ended when I got Aaron Lewis on a season long loan from Swansea, he has proven to be a godsend to be honest as I'm not sure that my other RB options are good enough at this moment.
  6. The whole point of this challenge is not to dominate domestically that would be boring but it is to create a Celtic side of purely Scottish nationality which can win the European Cup. That in itself is a challenge considering you will not only have to maintain Celtic's dominance in the Scottish league but to do so with a limited scope of players, there is nothing to stop you from trying a similar save using say Barcelona/Milan/Liverpool or some other big name. For information the last club to win the European Cup (or Champions League) with players from only one country was Steaua Bucharest in 1986. This is not an easy challenge just winning the cup with Celtic is going to be hard enough.
  7. Sell, 30 million for a 31 year old forward is not to be ignored. He maybe a club legend but 30 million in the bank for a club of Leicester's size is not to be sniffed at. I'm sure if it was to happen in real life Vardy himself would be pushing for one last big payday.
  8. Loans are the way to go, down in the lower levels there isn't the money to splash out on the best. Be prepared to grind out results with boring tactics the players in the lower leagues are not going to score wonder goals or go on mazy runs they don't have the skills. The best tactics are simple tactics basic 442, or 433 work however, tactics need to be built round what you have available not the other way round.
  9. You don't need to buy the in-game editor, the pre-game editor in the tools section is what is needed and that is free!
  10. Try Altrincham for a challenge newly promoted back in to the Conference North but formerly a very strong member of the main Conference league. They have a very rich history of Cup Giant Killing. The challenge however, is getting them to return to the Conference and do well there as they are one of the few part-time clubs in the Conference structure.
  11. Pease note the above comment as stated in the first post. All English phases should be removed by the time the game goes live!
  12. How about one of the Moscow clubs they have dominated Russian football for years but have dropped off in European competition since the fall of the wall.
  13. Got to agree with this one. Mind you 3rd season in and he has become a little inconsistent for my Celtic team.
  14. Season 3 ended unbeaten in the League, the Man Utd interest for Tierney never materialised so he remains in my squad. However, he is now sharing LB duties with Luke Shaw who I picked up just in case Tierney did leave, for a bargain 8 Million so now having to keep both happy until the next transfer window. Pre-season has gone well and included a brilliant 3-1 home win against a very strong Milan which bodes well for Europe this season. The summer transfer window was very quiet interms of incomings although 4 youngsters were got on frees, the best of which was a wonderkid called Okore who is proving to be a good challenger for Tau on the right.
  15. For younger players I do what the earlier posts state, however, I always look at the beginning of a season for players who are coming to the end of their contract within 12 months, and make a note of any I like the look of. Come January time I look again at the contract list I scout those players at larger clubs and below the age of 25, then if the scout report is favourable I will offer a contract. Not every player will want to accept a contract especially if you are with a team in a lower reputation country/league but even if they don't want to take up your offer straight away waiting a few months when the contracts get closer to finishing or have finished can usually lead to a player changing their minds and not only want to join a lower rep team but will be more take lower wages as well. I've picked up many bargains this way (not all of them have been successful but I've nearly always managed to sell them on without losing too much to agents and signing on fees). As has been said before Brazil is great for picking up regens however, don't forget the other South American countries one of the best goal scorers I have found was a regen from Peru who I got on a free the lad just scored for fun. I've also had a fair bit of luck with African teams the gems are there to be found even if some are better hidden than others.
