    jeeez - how many seasons????
    I can't get my sh*t together long enough to get thru' one at the moment - I've had to restart my AFC game re my PC reboot, and I'm still f*cking around exploring different formations in pre-season. Got seperate games going with 442, 433, 4312, 4321 & 4231 - and even my 442 isn't standard as I've been playing around with it to try to emulate our 'real' playing style.

    This is pretty much all i've been doing so far this summer. Got a brilliant network game with my mate as Roma, he's Fiorentina. In 3rd, 7 points behind Inter with 32 games played. He's currently 5th, 11 points behind. Got dumped out the CL in the group stage (had Liverpool, Marseille and Sporting in my group), and was then knocked out of the Uefa Cup by Zaragoza. Signed Huntelaar and Matias Fernandez, as well as Sankhare, Sakho and Adrien. Network games are always alot tougher cause i like to take my time over the season hah.

    My laptop with my game on has broken, the disc is still in and I cant switch it on to get it out. Need to buy a new power cable to fix it, which costs about 90 quid.

    After how many seasons is that Clrnc? I've only played 5 seasons so far as Fiorentina. :wink:

    And I'm yet to get any wins with Italy because EURO 2012 is just about to start (I was appointed manager after WC 2010). :p

    I'm pretty sure there is this tiny hole on the cd tray on every laptop. You just have to poke it with something else that is small and it should open.

    but it might also break the disc tray

    Not really they're made for that stuff. Here's a quote that basically explains it:

    "With the PC turned off, unfold a metal paperclip, poke it in the hole and manually eject the CD that's in the drive."

    All cdroms i've seen have them, especially if they're laptops.

    and guys if you need more squad players, schedule a bunch of reserve games, like one every other day, grey players pop up much more frequent.

    I have gotten some solid plaeyrs like that, and they are often 18-21 and they get domestic and club trained status straight away

    Will there be a patch with the latest transfers for FM08 or do I have to wait for FM09?

    Just started a new Arsenal file.

    I thought I'd make it interesting by selling 15 first team players and buying 11 to replace them. Arsenal's new improved line up looks like this:


    Sagna - Toure - Yobo - Taiwo

    Fabregas - Aimar - Nihat

    Arshavin - Kiessling - Ben Arfa

    Subs: DeMichaelis, Bikey , Defour , v.Persie, Walcott, Clichy, Eduardo, Denilson.

    At the start of February 2008 I'm top of the league and still in the FA cup and Champions' League.

    I regularly thrash teams 4 or 5 nil, I'm thinking of replacing the first team with Championship players over the summer to make next season more challenging.

    @YeahBee: It works best in 8.0.0 and 8.0.1 (i.e. WITHOUT patching) in Italy. I've got good players for that, but I sold almost all of them for lots of money. xD

    And it seems you're not frugal with your money :lol:

    My budget at the start of the 2012-2013 season was £74m. The transfer window's about to close and it's now £76m. Most of my spending is usually on contract renewals. xD

    And I'm a shrewd with transfers as well, bought a player for less than a million, and then I get to sell that player for £12m+ after 3 seasons or so. :p

    Also, I've won the Euros with Italy. :)

    I've made an edited 8.0.2 database, with the Arsenal board complete, and all Arsenal related transfers that have transpired in reality are "to be completed" (since the game starts in 2007). But it seems I can't load it because I was forced to end the data editor abruptly. :p

    Started a new game as Arsenal after going 4 seasons without a trophy (so obviously not getting a new contract) in my first game. Much better start this time. Unfortunately 4th in the league although it was very close (6 points separating the top 4) and I was right in it until losing to United and drawing with Chelsea in the 33rd and 34th games. Lost the FA Cup semi final on penalties but I won the Champions League!

    I had a quite a tough group which included Lyon and Lazio. You could say my knockout draw was favourable - CSKA Moscow then Ajax then Sevilla then Valencia in the final. But Sevilla did beat Barcelona and Inter, and Ajax beat Liverpool and Valencia beat Chelsea in the semi. Can only beat what's in front of you and all that. Led 1-0 in the final until conceding in the last 10 minutes. Then an action packed extra time saw me win 4-2. :)

    SUSIE have an update for anyone that's interested. It's fairly good.

    Biggest thing missing of notice is that they couldnt implement the minus points in the lower leagues.
