I think they are perfect and probably one of the main reasons playstation has been so successfull

 

That plus the fantastic exclusive games they keep coming out with, mainly from first party developers.

Just been checking out the list of new features that will be in FM 2012. To be honest, it doesnt seem like much of a change. The ability to add and delete playable leagues at anytime is cool, as is the tone feature in conversations. But other than that,e verything just seems a little tweek. I was hoping for more of an overhaul to be honest, I stopped playing FM much sooner than normal this year because it got too boring and easy.

Yea I agree neverbefore, they seem to have got more slack with Championship Manager not bringing anything out. They control the market and just seem to be spouting the same game out with a few small tweaks. It is far too easy, I know I like winning but I'd rather it was realistic. I can get Boro to Premiership in first season usually, and then settle into mid table second season and push for 4th spot in 3rd season and usually win on my 4th. That could never happen and I'd rather see that reflected in the game. I'd like it to feel a challenge, it seems the computer managers aren't as good as real players. They should be. They should be able to see the right transfers for their team, which they never seem to make. They should be more adaptable in games too, and be able to utilize tactics more.

 

Another example of how easy the game is, with Mallorca I won La Liga in my first season.

 

I'm starting a game of FM2011 now with an updated database that incorporates all the summer transfers too. May update my progress in here every couple of game months. Unfortunately the database doesn't seem perfect, still got Wheater and O'Neill and no Ikeme but that's okay. It's only done by one guy so it's not going to be perfect. Not going to do any changes in the database myself, even though Joe Bennett should be better and have a PA of around 150.

 

Do you think they'll change players in the new one much for us? Bates/Bennett/Emnes/Steele/Smallwood all need big updates in my opinion.

They'll update players. They'll tweak things but in my opinion, it doesn't need much of an update. They made huge changes last year and I think they want to settle into a certain system. I expect more for 2012.

Actually, considering starting a new game of FM today, am off for the week so need something to keep me busy! Already had a game with a premiership team (spurs, Villa, ***nal), championship (Boro, many times!) and league 1 (southampton). Also had a short lived Napoli game, as well as my usual long terms Atletico Madrid game. Anyone got any suggestions on who to try next?

Problem is, I love playing with players I know in real life so I can imagine exactly how I want my team to play in my mind (I know, i take it too seriously).

I had a database that took it all the way down to the 10th level and I played with my local team Northallerton, gave up by the time I was in League 1, but that took me a good 13/14 seasons. lol

Yeah I was going to download one of them but I never got round to doing it. What are the players stats like? 2s and 3s and that?

My best striker had Finishing of 3 when I started. Quite bad thinking about it, I like to think I'm not bad at football. But these players are better than me and are rated as such.

 

Jesus, I got it from here. http://www.pcgamer.com/2011/07/26/the-best-custom-leagues-for-football-manager-2011/

    • Don't be impressed then, just be happy with a 7-0 win like I said. In the past 18 months England have made it to the World Cup semi finals and the Nations League finals.  That's better than a lot of good teams including - Spain, Belgium, Argentina, Germany, Italy and plenty of others.  We lost to Croatia after extra time in a game we probably should have won by half time and Holland after extra time in a game that we could have won but obviously didn't.  To get to the Nations League finals we had to beat both Spain and Croatia and to get to the World Cup semi finals we had to beat both Colombia and Sweden, who are both decent sides.  I think we're a better team now than we were in the World Cup as well.  We lost to Belgium in the group stage and then again the third place play off but we changed the team for both of those games, rightly or wrongly.  So whilst we did lose the games, we also didn't give either of them our best shot. Against the mighty Kosovo we won 5-3, my memory is fine.  Winning and scoring 5 goals sounds pretty good to me.  The mighty Kosovo have lost twice this year - to us and 2-1 against Czech Republic.  They've also beaten the Czech Republic and drawn with Denmark so they aren't a terrible side by any means. France have won a few trophies over the past few decades.  They've also been a better team than us over the last few decades as have Spain so that seems fair enough to me. Our much lauded attacking line up has done fine unless we don't count putting 3 past Spain and beating Croatia?  During the world cup we weren't playing like this so it's really only post the world cup that we've had the opportunity to see it in action and so far it's done pretty well.  When it gets tested against better teams next year we'll see how it goes then of course. We've put 3 past Spain, 5 past Czech Republic, 6 and 4 past Bulgaria, 5 and 7 past Montenegro and 5 past Kosovo in the last year or so.  I'm not sure it's fair to call them all minnows and if you look around there aren't many teams doing that with the same regularity.  Montenegro the other night weren't a pub side, we are the only team who have stuffed them over the past 3 or 4 years and that includes games against Denmark, Poland, Romania, Czech Republic, Hungary, Turkey and Serbia.  We're a much better side than them but they aren't hopeless and have been competitive against decent sides other than us. I don't see the relevance between a video game on the easiest setting and England.  We're not playing San Marino, Andorra etc, the teams we are playing are better than that, and as I pointed out above, we've done ok even in competitive games against good opposition.
    • Cardiff appoint ex Miillwall boss Neil Harris as their new manager. 
    • Ayala was identified by Mowbray and the loan signing went through at the time of his sacking, he definitely wasn't a Venus signing. Karanka was in charge when we signed him permanently but he had nothing to do with us identifying Ayala initially. 
    • Sorry @Erimus74. Did not see your post. I dont think any are out of contract in jan but following 6 are out of contract come the summer.  Shotton, Ayala, Friend, Howson Johnson, Rudy. Suggestion is Clayton could be 7th one also out of contract but we might have an option to extend his. That option lies with us and not Clayton apparently.
    • Totally agree @wilsoncgp. I am also at a loss to explain reason why but i am also not too bothered why other clubs are not going for him because given his stats for last few season and fact he has 6 months left on his contract means the financial risk attached with him could not be lower. He already has 9 goals and 6 assists from midfield this season meaning he almost averaging a goal/assist every game. And as @DanFromDownSouth said. He is exactly the type of player our team currently lacks imo.
