Is it really hard for a simple tweet of no beta not today!

Is it really hard to not desperately wait for something and demand information about things that havent been promised  or hinted at in any way?

Me too pal. I'm 45. These youngsters don't know they're born! I used to have to use a floppy disc on the Amiga to manage my Leeds United team. Before Cantona as well.

I can remember my goalie Mervyn Day and Gordan Strachan in midfield! Ha ha 

Mervyn Day! Haven't heard his name in a while. And Gary McAllister - was gutted when he left us for you - quality player, never gave the ball away

I used to get the Kicker special issue and went into the basement for weeks to get the correct names and data input into Anstoss/Off the ball on my 386 computer. I think Breitholz inhame was helmer and there was a decent Striker at Borussia Dortmund named Vespucci who was really Chapuisat if i remember right. Kahn wasnt called Mustermann though ;-)

If you would have told this kid this would be a few clicks on the internet one day. Tanks to all database editors, researchers etc.

 

Mc Allister was one of the few English players actually known to some people here in Germany after Keegan. Just learned about the new names in Italia 90 then.

30 years ago we had David Pleat as manager. That makes me emotional, but not in a good way!

Whilst I would love the Beta to be out tonight, it could be worse - there could be no Football Manager game. 

I for one am thankful and appreciative that we have an FM game to look forward to.

On the plus side, my laptop hasn’t reset in 24 hours of waiting, so tomorrow will give it another 24 hours to reset 🤞🏻

It is, but they can stop it very easily. “No beta tonight”. Everybody goes home. Sorted.

Anstoss (On The Ball in UK) was a great game too. Very immersive.

There was a game out on the BBC Micro in the 80's called "Soccer Supremo" which differed from every game before or since in that the players didn't have numbered stats but had descriptions in a little book that came with the game - can still remember some of their names now! It was great. Appalling by today's standards but very good at the time!

I can remember playing 442. I had speed, batty, mccallister and Strachan as my 4 mids and had rocastle and Hodge on the bench.

Lee Chapman scored loads up front with Ronny Rosenthal that I bought for £3m off Liverpool! Ha ha.

I still think it will be tonight as they've not said otherwise yet as they did last night. 

Mind you. I'm still waiting on Scotland qualifying for a major tournament, and have been for 20 years now...

"Patrizier" by the same publisher as Anstoss actually had a manual booklet with real pigskin, and it wasnt even a special edition, you pay hundreds of coins today for.

4-4-2 actually nobody in Germany knew until the late 90s, w eplayed with a sweeper and 4-4-2 was introduced very late as the modern kind of football played in England and by AC Milan with that witchcraft called offside trap.

I’ve asked them twice now & got nothing. Fair enough if something does drop tonight, like.

It might not happen tonight, but I reckon the radio silence is because they are trying to get it out tonight.  Anyone who works in Software (puts hands up) will tell you how long and laborious the process is when bug fixing, re-building, re-uploading to the relevant business systems and servers (especially if it's the Atlassian toolset for example...)

Patience people.  If we're frustrated waiting I can tell you there will be nobody more frustrated than the coders, devs and evaluators right now.  They'll be desperate to get it out but also get it out as right as possible.

My back 4 was Mel sterland and at DR. Chris whyte and fairclclough at DC and Dorigo at DL.

Gary Kelly was an 18yr old youth player at striker and was brilliant. Before he became a cracking DR

Yea in all seriousness, this is what happens when you slacken off the rules a bit and don't expect each thread to stick strictly to the topic. People actually get on with each other and have a great time. Well played everybody!

Everyone who has ever worked will tell you how relaxing that feeling is when you have gone home at five o clock and no one thinks about business till the next work day.

Perhaps they don't want to be repeating the same thing every night and frankly, they have no reason to. It has been said many times that we should expect it on Friday, so to say that SI now also owes us hourly updates, is a bit unfair. Also, they probably enjoy the hype their franchise is getting - forums are on fire. :D

Miles has been working till the early hours of teh morning , no one at SI has went home at 1700 on the week a new FM comes out. No one working in software development anywhere is going home at 1700 in the run up to a release.

It's pretty obvious they do this to build hype, they want us tweeting and posting about it to hype each other. Which is why they haven't said "no beta tonight".

 

Just because I posted this they confirmed not tonight.

Mel Sterland - the greatest wing back in Europe before wing backs were cool.

I remember having about a million Mel Sterlands in his Sheffield Weds shirt in my Panini album. I could have wallpapered the house with him!

Of course they will working overtimes, but of course they wont rush anything out before their schedule because some guys feel inclined to it on the forum.

 

Not tonight, ok. If i would actually react to anything i would release it a 00:01 tomorrow now :-D
