  1. Beat me to the England job after the first season in my game.
  2. I rarely get a draw out of Man United, Tevez and Rooney seem to score goals for Britain. As for lower clubs, Newcastle (or more specifically, Obafemi Martins) often manage to beat me at St. James' and get draws out of me at home, and Man City and West Ham can also be really annoying.

It is the closest thing on computer to actually playing. It understands the importance of first touch, vision, passing, ball physics, everything you need in real football. Don't judge Pro Evo unless you have played a reasonable amount of football yourself, it's not a fair judgement otherwise. I'm really disappointed that people banging on about realism on this forum don't see how real Pro Evo is. If you play it thinking like you are really playing football, it works perfectly. </div></BLOCKQUOTE> Hate to get involved in this argument, especially as I supported PES every year up to PES08, and I don't even like Fifa 08 (so don't get on me about that), but I have to. I can see what you're getting at with the "don't judge Pro Evo unless you have played a reasonable amount of football yourself" comment, because I agree that it does have an engine that realistically recreates football - but not the level of football that it's supposed to be doing. I could honestly compare a match on PES to a high standard match in my local team's league - where positioning is really quite poor, no clean tackles are made, no superb running onto through balls is done, and there's no way to put real power onto a shot (unless your name is Steven Gerrard or Frank Lampard).
  5. By no means am I saying that it's definately a lie, just thought I'd point out that at least two managers are being controlled in that save.

And Krisztián Németh. I think it's Nathan Eccleston who gets pretty good also - along with Lauri Dalla Valle.

  10. Usually just the one, unless I'm in a particularly creative mood.

If I concende I know that I could have actually done something about it - when Wigan equalise with an 89th minute penalty on FM, I'm convinced that it was my defender's fault for giving it away. I get so frustrated when something like that happens but I can't do anything to stop it.
