  1. Re: Serie A Rating Predictions 2012/13 That's a rather optimistic prediction for a guy with 15 minutes of playing time.
  2. Re: Gold Championships - Bringing Value To Cash & Realism To The Game I hate the idea of a squad cap, since they don't exist in real life. I don't see a problem with the player concern system, TBH. It has forced me to sell on players who I would have rather kept, since I simply can't give them all enough game time. My one issue with the concerns system is with youth players (under 21s) concerned with game time. On one of my teams I gave 20 year old Balotelli more minutes that the real Man City gave him last season, and he still wasn't happy, so I ended up selling him. The source of the hoarding issue as I see it is that the gameworld economies are simply too rich. I just left a Celtic team in a GC that had over 300 million cash and essentially nowhere to spend it, since every other team also has tons of money. GC's are ruined by easy money. Make revenues harder to come by (and/or raise player wages) and it will make it naturally harder to pay all your players, forcing you to let some go.
  3. Re: Stadium Building I'd settle for the ability to just fill my stadiums. I'm totally frustrated with my smaller teams, which are consistently successful on the pitch, but can't attract enough fans. Example 1: EC3995 - Just led Bradford City to the SMFA Shield semi final against Rubin. Home leg match attendance: 20,062 (capacity 25,136). If the real-life Bradford City made it to the semi finals of the Europa League, there's no way they wouldn't sell out Valley Parade. Example 2: ASL279 - In the 4th season of the gameworld, my Vancouver Whitecaps just won their 4th straight domestic league, and also just won the SMFA Champions Cup for the first time. That's 10 honours in 4 seasons. This season's average attendance? 15,652, which is below average for the league, and about 5,000 less than the real life Vancouver Whitecaps.
  4. Re: YBR - Young Brazilian Risers (Predictions on the first page) Great thread! Thanks for putting this together. There look like some great money-makers in this list, but who would you say are the must-buy players, ones with 90+ potential? Also, could you please let us know why you think Ganso will drop? Cheers!
  5. Re: David de Gea If you are planning on sticking with that team and building it for the next few years, then keep De Gea. But if Lewandowski is the last piece of the puzzle to win a major trophy, then make the trade.
  6. Re: New Position - Fullback (FB) This has been on my mind for a while. It has always troubled me that there are LB/RB and LM/RM, but "Wing" doesn't specify L or R. I would suggest that they add a "FB" position, but only for players who can truly play at LB or RB, not as a replacement for those two positions (e.g. Jose Enrique of Liverpool only ever plays LB. He should not get the FB designation). I would also like to see LW and RW added for wings who only ever play on one side of the pitch.
  7. Re: SMFA blocking my deals... Are you both logged in at the same location? I think they will block deals where both users are playing from the same IP address.
  8. Re: marco reus According to Transfermarkt, he has 9 assists in the league and 2 in the cup.
  9. Re: Respuesta: English Premiership Rating Predictions 2011/2012
  10. Re: Henrik MKHITARYAN Wouldn't be surprised to see him hit 89 in the next Ukraine ratings review, especially if Shakhtar can get back into first place. Failing to qualify for the last 16 of the CL won't help though.
  11. Re: Scholes comes out of retirement! Free agent, yes, but surely they wouldn't bring him back at 92. We've been through a review cycle since he left - pretty sure he would have dropped had he still been playing.
  12. Re: Gary Cahill Swap for Ramsey or Romeu?? Obviously you need to weigh your tactical needs trading a defender for a midfielder, but personally I would trade Cahill for Ramsey in a heartbeat. Ramsey should be rising to 88 in this review, but Cahill shouldn't rise playing for such a **** team. +++++++++++++++++ That was supposed to say c-r-a-p. I can't believe SM would star out such a mild word.
  13. Re: Chrome Web Store How is this different than playing on another browser through the web site? ++++++++++ Edit: I normally use Firefox, but I installed Chrome just so I could check out this Soccer Manager "install". It's just a shortcut! It's not like you're installing an app or anything.
  14. Re: Soccer manager not working for anyone else? Yep, it's down. Glad I'm not the only one. Misery loves company.
  15. Re: Forum Championship I use Firefox' date=' but I tested Internet Explorer, and it's the same. I've never linked a pic before so hopefully this works:[img']http://a.yfrog.com/img740/2074/j7jbp.jpg[/img] The screenshot above is from my netbook at 1024x600 resolution. You can see the chat bar is overlapping the news feed on the right. The window is maximized, and I auto-hide the taskbar in order to gain more real estate, which is why it doesn't show. On a widescreen display, the chat bar is off to the side an out of the way.
  16. Re: Forum Championship I can see it but I don't want to - I hate always-on-top "bars" on websites that interfere with the content I am trying to view. I can see that it is nicely off to the side on a widescreen 1920x1080 display, but on my Mac with 1440x900 resolution it is overlapping the main part of the window. On my netbook with 1024x600, it's horrible.
  17. Re: Russian and Ukraine Player Analysis 2010 I wouldn't expect a rise for either this time. Only 17 minutes for Dudu this season, and 0 for Alan Patrick.
  18. Re: Forum Championship Or maybe you should spend your money more wisely, rather than blow 26M on Jan Vertonghen Personally, I'd love to see big-name clubs starting with tiny budgets so you can't make the glory signings right out of the gate. Make it so it's a race to see who can afford to sign Messi first, rather than auctioning him off to the highest bidder.
  19. Re: Forum Championship Very pleased with my Fenerbahçe starting XI, and the second team is starting to fall into place... Buffon 94 Fanni 89 Puyol 96 Carvalho 93 Abidal 92 Pepe 89 Alonso 94 Totti 92 Malouda 92 Lazovic 89 Berbatov 93 Got another 9 players secured, and still 45M to spend...
  20. Re: New players The idea of realism is to mimic the conditions under which the real football world operates, not to replicate every player transaction, goal and yellow card. If you want that, you might as well just watch Sky Sports News. The team was more or less accurate at the time you took it over. Now it's up to you to manage. If the prospect is that valuable to you, pay the price, just like Fergie would in real life.
  21. Re: Free Agent Search I've found a bug. When you do a Free Agent search, the Info column does not populate in the search results, so you can't see who already has bids, interest, etc. I've tested this in two separate gameworlds.
