Why are Liverpool so bad?

30 posts in this topic

Firstly im not a Liverpool fan, I support my local Sutton Utd!

But why are Liverpool so crap in this version, I know they have been going through some bad times recently but I think they always finish in the top 4. (last few seasons anyway - good old Prem history on FM [img]http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img])

They always seem to miss out on Champs League in 1st season then go down hill from there, 6-10th second season etc. etc. (I know money would drop but still)

Anyone else have this in there game? or is it just me?? [img]http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif[/img]

Why is 5th so unrealistic?

It looks like Liverpool could finish 5th this season if their crap form continues.

Also worth noting that while they may have a hefty bank balance, they have huge debt repayments to make, so if in the game they miss out on the CL even for one season, it could be disastrous for them.

Bit like Rl actually lol, make or break season for them this in a way.

Yeah finished 5th on mine! First season after the patch! Not viewing that in full detail though so could be down to that! </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

In my book this is as realistic as it gets

Its also called football. There were elements of luck against Inter Milan, and to be fair to any Liverpool fans here, the game should have been sewn up way before the last 5 minutes. Likewise as Wiliam said, it defies logic how Liverpool did not murder Barnsley.

But thats the beautiful game and I feel that FM recreates that perfectly, one day you lose in the cup to a team like Barnsley, few days later you beat Inter Milan hehe

Why don't they have any transfer funds after the 802 patch? Im sure they had some before.

We only have players (and a manager) that are interested in one thing...The champions league. We can't beat barnsley or even wigan - no offence. However we can beat an italian giant unbeaten since september in all competitions - explain that.

Maybe on fm Liverpool tend to do well in the champions league (when they reach it) rather than the premiership? They do on mine anyway </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

If you watched the Barnsley game though, How Liverpool didn't win by a landslide is a mystery that can only be associated with the F.A Cup </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

Yeah i seen the amount of chances we had, same old story with liverpool in these situations though, lots of chances but nothing to show for it. We made a distinctly average keeper look world class. All credit to Steele though, he didn't half have a good day

to be fair, i'd rather see teams like coventry and barnsley progress than Man Utd and L'pool etc. Just livens up the cup, teams below the premiership always seem to play 'real' football

Fair points and I agree with alot, but havin looked at my saved games only once have they finished in top 4 (3rd) in first season, and I have alot of saved games!! [img]http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

They do have fantastic players and should make top 4 on at least half of my saves.

Not on mine they dont. I cant even ask for funds as this option is greyed out.

i was surprised at the transfer money because they didn't have that much in 801 i'm sure. but there it was.
still couldn't buy anyone though. one went off to arsenal and another went to chelsea. but i'm still looking to spend it.

well on my game (which is bias towards newcastle but thats a differ topic all together) they allways start crap with rafa the rotater, then a new manager comes in some world class manager ive never heard of aguirie or something like that and they become title contenders.
Hes a very good manager he sold voronin and kuyt for like 3 mil which made me laugh and bought a striker that new what it felt to score goals.

Nope. I'll just wait until January. Should hopefully get some money then.

one my long term game, they came 11th in the 1st season, then 1st or 2nd in 7 of the next 9 years. So not too bad
