Great - I'll give it a go when I re-install my game. I'd bought Annan & Jovetic in the senior team, and a sh*t load of youngsters like Belfodil, Canales, Sandjak, Assulin, Guilavogui & Salaun. Tried to buy Chamakh & Suarez but kept getting out bid by CFC & ManC. Was playing 433 with RVP as Trequarista up front & AA & Eduardo as Advanced Playmakers on the flanks & had only just started the season - B'ham 3-0 at Home, Fiorentina 2-0 Away, & ManU 1-0 Away - Al had been immense in goal & we'd yet to concede including pre-season. Usually dominated the match stats playing in either Attack mode (Home) or Control (Away), but went with Standard at OT & the possession etc was even except ManU had about 22 shots at goal to my 14. I'll try Illusion's idea about changing the size of my data base as well - I had all the major European & Sth American Leagues running in view mode but hadn't loaded players from anywhere, but still had Large database selected & 36k of players. It used to be that Belgium & Switzerland were good for players, and I'm guessing that the former Yugoslav area would also be decent if it reflects 'real' like.
