  1. Budgets are re-set every year....this is nothing new on FM , what a strange rant that was !!
  2. Sorry pal, if anything the game is too easy after 8.02. Are you mishandling the media ? If your players aren't happy this me be part of the problem. Other than that I can only suggest that you're not very good at the game yet and to keep plugging away.
  3. I'll start this post by stating that I'm a huge SI fan and of course FM and previous CM's (done by SI). I am astounded that this 'exploit' has made it through testing......who does the testing ??? I noticed this by the end of pre-season (as it seems have many others) so i'm stunned that it hasn't been picked up. Yes we can choose not to use it, but will we go from feast to famine ? Time will tell I guess, but my gripe is that it hasn't been picked up in testing and it should have been. For Fm2006 I was one of the many beta testers. I maintain that the 'experiment' of getting the community to 'mass test' was a huge success as FM2006 was pretty good 'out of the box'. I know someone leaked the code, but that was always going to happen......If I were SI I'd look for a way to get the wider community involved again as for whatever reason really obvious things are being missed.
  4. The issue isn't so much that the AI cheats (which it doesn't), just that it conjures up results in bizarre manners at times. Too mnay occasions when you batter the opposition only for them to get a freak goal / penalty / deflection etc... If in the game that the original poster is referring to Arsenal had scored a couple of 'normal' goals and had reltively equal chances (or at least proportionate to the difference in class between the teams) then people wouldn't rant so much. That said, it does happen IRL where a team gets battered and still steals the win......but once a season tops.....not every third game.
  5. The key thing you need to learn is that there is no such game as Soccer......tis Football my friend

  7. I just read the whole thread and would like to add my two pennorth. on older versions of FM and indeed CM it was easy to build a squad of international superstars by buying young 'wonderkids' training them up, selling for big bucks, building an empire and then raping your opposition's squads for their prize assets. It's my belief that SI have recognised this pattern and created a 'work around' which makes life much harder for the user. You can still pull together a great squad in time, but the hassle involved in getting rid of unwanted players coupled with the struggle to land your prime targets have made the game much tougher (some may add more realistic ?!). If this 'work around' exists then it is a bit crude (similar to the 90th minute equaliser work around but that's another subject) but it does the job it was designed to do.....it's now time for SI to fine tune this in order to make the scenarios as realistic as possible.
  8. Liverpool fan here. Whoever came up with the lyrics for that song clearly has the IQ of a muppet. As for Buzby, that just takes the biscuit....what a clod

  10. I'd like to pay tribute to Cleon here, I've not downloaded the tactic but I have taken note of his set up (wing backs and DMC with back arrows) and have to say it has turned my game around. I set up my own tactic with this idea of a back 2 becoming a back 5, coupled it with slow tempo and short passing and have had great success. I'm unbeaten with Nottm Forest after 30 games (yes I know Forest are good for League 1 but there's no way I'd have gone unbeaten with any other set up I've tried thus far). Anyway, thanks again Cleon, keep up the good work.
  11. It can be done and it aint actually that hard tbh. The key is to keep buying / selling players, remember every player has his price, you get all the good freebies and sell them on as soon as you get a decent offer. The squad will never be truly 'settled' but you get away with it by having such a good team. Raiding higher leagues youth teams is a good method as well. The money you earn from these 'sell ons' should be invested in upgrading youth and training facilities.
