  1. So who can we call a [/starry word] then?
  2. You've got to stop posting naked selfies
  3. The Karma thingy that is used over on 2 would work for those +1 posts
  4. The rest of us didn't.
  5. I always had Predators and loved the blue ones in the early to mid 2000's but the different coloured ones are a step too far for me
  6. Retraining all the way.
  7. I'd usually find that playing them regularly when they return from injury will see them get back to their former selves
  8. Twitter can be a great advertising tool tbf. For a company like SI (Miles, etc...) who are going to have a shedload of followers, a competition that becomes a trending topic could open up an awful lot of potential new customers as well as potential advertising opportunities and it's free.
  9. I always have a first team squad of around 25, which gives me a big enough squad to rotate players throughout the season. I don't need to dip into my reserve or youth team either. I like to have most of my reserves out on loan (especially in Scotland which doesn't have a proper reserve league now which means less games) and anyone under 18 will play for the youth team unless they are ready to go on loan and play regularly
  10. Victor Renner was always a good signing on old CM's
  11. Take a deep breath and remember that it isn't real
  12. I found that having a decent feeder club works in boosting player value. In my last save game I was in the EPL with an edited club and I managed to get Dunfermline as a feeder club whilst they were in SD1. I sent them a load of players which helped them get promoted. The following few seasons seen them grow into a bigger club than Rangers and Celtic and become regulars in the champions league. The players I loaned them began to reach their potential and their values skyrocketed. I had one striker who with hindsight I should have kept as he became the best in the game imo but I had strong players in that role when he wasn't ready. I sold him for £10m plus 50% of the next sale, which ended up being nearly £30m - this was someone I had never even started in my team. It's a long process but in the long term you can cherry pick the best players from the international u-18 sides, loan them to a decent feeder and sell in the future for a good price or if they become good enough sell the older player
  13. Generally have players that cover every position. I tend to find my midfielders get tired earlier than defenders so i ensure there are 3 midfielders on the bench, but usually they can also play a different role. Goalie, 2 defenders who can play LRC between the two of them, 2 dedicated midfielders, 2 strikers, with at least one of them being able to play a midfield, or winger role
  14. Not quite obscurity but Magne Hoseth was epic in CM01/02, don't think that http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magne_Hoseth comes close to his CM ability
  15. I had a wicked 2-3-2-1-2 on older CMs which tore teams apart but it never worked as great in later FMs due to the gaps at the back. -----DC--- DC----- WBL-- DM-- WBR -----CM--- CM----- -------AMC--------- -----ST--- ST-----
