  1. Re: How to solve the GC money problem. There is though mate. What happens with youngsters/risers? and the cap being unrealistic doesn't matter because it would only come into force when the games gone beyond unrealistic. There is no real argument against a cap. Simple as that.
  2. Re: Board Expectations The younger/newer managers should obviously get more time, and maybe the rewards/punishment would have to be rep based because of that, but something should be done. SM could even give the new managers better rewards for success, to keep them in jobs. Either way i think we all agree it's fair to get one if we get the other, and it should also make it better/exciting anyway imo.
  3. Re: How to solve the GC money problem. There's not too much to be done though, that's what people seem to make so hard to understand. It's one daft little feature, not about 5 like others to change/make unnecessary things. Like everybody has already said though loads of times, it's because the people been here the longest or the people respected more(the very few of them) don't like it. Your spoiling a game for many for the few of you, and this really is it now. Because all it does Phil is question wether you have more accounts, and them accounts are full of players. Or at-least one of them. So i'm not speaking another word about it. Hopefully though SM know what will improve it, not the game thats not even here, but this game for everyone here and people SM hope to attract.
  4. Re: How to solve the GC money problem. I understand and appreciate everybody's opinions on everything lads, the fact is though all the complaints are from older setups, so doing any trial that's not in a similar sized setup, with a similar number of managers and also the variety we have, will be no good really. It could help at the start of the setup's too though imo, because it should help with the greed and stop people asking for 3 and 4 players for 1. Which it turn spoils it because if that 1 player they bought gets injured or something, they end up quitting because they don't have many decent players left. The main people it would benefit most is people not even here yet, and the last thing anybody should want is them getting even worse before they do arrive. Everyone that plays gets a free account first obviously, and a lot are not going to be too keen to get a GM account when all the moaning is here everyday almost. Nearly all join the forum before going gold so it's bound to make some think twice. Everyone plays to buy players, but most want decent players that they've heard of, especially at decent clubs, and the old setups nobody can get them. You can't even get some players, not the best though as there is absolutely no chance of getting them, but early 90's for £80mill and thing's, and that's just daft. All we hear in here as-well is them old one's are the best, so they are the one's they will want to join. I totally agree too that it would be out of order changing the rules this far in, at-least if it's affecting people anyway. But it could easily be done that it didn't really matter because it's players they don't need. Like i said yesterday, it could even harm me as the majority of players i manage to get in all the GC's is the exact ratings i'm saying should be capped. thenaughtyforty, most of them are great ideas mate, i totally agree. But all the complaints and things are about existing problems. We all wanted more money for the players, and most can't buy any now so thats why we have money to burn. Managers are only supposed to buy players and make the team win as-well, so anything else should be extras that SM/chairmen sort out. I also agree mate thats it a great game, but it could get even better. For more people too. The argument of a squad cap not being realistic though because real life managers don't have one, is not very good. How many do you see with the squads we have on here? and like i've said several times, they wouldn't be affected by a sensible cap. It's only a certain rating people complain about mainly, and it's not the worst or the best, just high 80's to low 90's as most know they can't get the best players(but can and will if the chance comes, and rightly so) or the low rated players as most clubs in the GC's play with higher more or less straight away. Obviously the wage budget is a good idea but we sort of have one anyway, because clubs only earn a certain amount. People wanted more though to buy players and now there's none left for most people.The contract thing is only an issue because people have too many players, and messing about with that will be far worse for the risers or players you just want to keep. With the amount of rating changes there is as-well though people simply don't need to keep them all.
  5. Re: Players Leaving Clubs It's the only way most will read them mate, because if they make too much sense they usually get ignored, so you need 5 or so similar for one to get read properly. As for the rest. It all makes plenty of sense to me, as you have maybe gathered if you read what i wrote. But like i said mate, something should be done for older setups too as thats were the problems are. You have even said yourself thats what discourages people, or potentially does. But it's the only thing that it can be really, as some of the clubs available are decent. They're just full of rubbish players (or none) but full of cash and whoever takes them can't buy. They still buy, as we all want to buy and nobody want's to stop the most enjoyable part of the game, but they only get rubbish and that just makes it all worse. Because when someone else wants them or takes over they have no money but a squad of 30-40 full of poor players. Then they'll either quit or buy more poor players and then quit.
  6. Re: Board Expectations Agree mate it's all about fun, even when playing the game itself(in real life) that's the most important thing. Imo though it would add to the fun, especially now with chaimen offering jobs out. Some people seem to just ruin teams on purpose too, or at-least don't do anything when it's going wrong. If we were to get bonuses for winning then the other side of the coin should be available too, as it's only fair, especially when we have managers that do that.. Some even get top clubs when setups start and just pick the team once, then don't touch it again and the club does rubbish. Them managers should be sacked all day as they are not being managers really.
  7. Re: What Tactics To Use To Counter 4-4-2? lol very sorry if you used that 3 5 2 and lost, as i've left counter attack out. You should always counter with a normal 3 5 2 imo, so sorry for leaving that bit as it's important .
  8. Re: Doesn't add up I agree mate and something could easily be done about it. The games are the whole point in playing and if thats all over, there's not much point. All the advice i gave you is good though mate, and is how it should be as it's all common sense really. But as you know, the game sometimes doesn't show any of that itself, so we can't expect it to be spot on all the time. Having said that lol, you also have to think mate that you had most of the ball, so your players were at-least doing something with it. Players don't always get low ratings when you lose, because it could be one or two little mistakes that have caused it, or equally a bit of brilliance from the other team. You can't say someone had a stinker because of one mistake really(although we all do when someone makes a bad one) and your team dominated by the looks, so were better. Forgot to add, the keeper's do look like they are the wrong way round rating's wise, or could be. The only thing i can think of is if all the shots were straight at him and he made a right howler for your goal, whilst your goals conceded were not Buffons fault and he made a decent save lol
  9. Re: Favourite Guitar Solo('s)? Not too different from Flea http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A-S19RCPdoQ&feature=related Although theres not much else you can do with a them lol. There is too many to add here really, as there really is loads. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T7qpfGVUd8c While my guitar gently weeps. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V4GuSVS18GE&feature=related http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sq8ciaFQHQM&feature=related This one is ok, the top one is just the solo from the full song, which is the bottom one. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tn28aGYytxs Most of theirs could be in here.
  10. Re: How to solve the GC money problem. I said it was my last words earlier, but it's too hard. What will a cap do in a trial setup? the problem is old setups because there is more managers now, so it's not very likely to get as bad in the future. Any trial would need to be in an older setup, to see what affect it really has. Look how many players there is lads, there's loads really. There is well enough for everyone but not when people have loads they don't need. Thats the whole problem really. People wouldn't even be suggesting player happiness if teams didn't have loads of players. What happens to squad players only used for the cup? the morale thing could be worse imo, far worse. When any decent player is available for transfer, we have all seen how stupid the bidding gets, so cash wouldn't last two minutes if there were any players to buy. A cap really would improve several aspects and no player morale would even be needed. Like people have said, SM could make a SENSIBLE cap, a cap were every single club, even the top clubs, can improve and even have several decent players for each position. The problem is when people have a few for each position but still buy a few more. Because there is far more decent players in the range 87-88 to 91-92 than any other rating, and these are the main players people hog. There is plenty of lower rated players and not many expect to have the real big players, so between them ratings has to be the main problem really. We don't need a cap that stops buying plenty of youth or rising players, or even the best as there's not many of them really, just one to stop teams keeping 2 or 3 for a certain position when they already have a few better and there is plenty of unmanaged teams. Decent teams usually. A cap could fill setups, improve the cash, put everyone on a level playing field except the already big boys, who would still have the advantage anyway and their manager would need to be rubbish or mees up for that to change. The same as the smaller clubs would still need to do well to catch them. It would improve everything but only if it's in all GC's imo. The problem might not arise in future setups with the increasing number of players, so it seems stupid to do a trial with one of them. joe mate, the only reason i've said you must have loads of top players is because your so against a cap in older setups, the only setups were a problem can persist really. I apologise if i'm wrong, but the only logical reason people can be against it is if they don't want to lose players, as a cap would only come into play for them not needed. Not players you want to keep, youth or rising players, just players you don't need.
  11. Re: Favourite Guitar Solo('s)? We should let it mate, this thread already looks a decent place to come to wind down, and God do we need it in here sometimes lol. SORRY IF I HAVE DONE PEOPLES HEADS IN TODAY, BUT SOME PEOPLE DON'T LISTEN WHILST ALSO TRYING TO TAKE THE MICHAEL. Once again, sorry, especially if anyone has an headache, i do. Never too much for a quality tune or two though. Talking heads but it's not much of a solo. Mainly the base lol. Too good not to add with the rest though imo.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z8yfWEpnLpw&feature=related They have loads that could be in here really, but some of their acoustic is the best, like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p2AYeBrt920 (same song again i know but it's good to know all original versions, especially in the day of the remake)
  12. Re: How to solve the GC money problem. Like people have said hundreds of times, the people with all the players are not going to like it, so people that do should be shouting for something as the games going to go down hill. If they are bad now, what will the GC's be like when them older ones are full? or more and more come to the game? The only thing is make it fairer all round or end up shutting GC's off, and you can't do that when EVERYBODY pays to play in them. Not a few managers. But something is clearly needed with the complaints every single day almost. A cap would improve several aspects too, so really a few people are stopping the game from getting better as a whole. It's clear that the only people that don't really like the idea have all the players, so SM should look at something like this and never get swayed by longer standing members. They should make the best decision for the game. Well and truly my last words on the subject, as i'll end up disliking a cap if they do introduce one now:) nobody can deny the fact it needs one though. Apart from thanks to everybody that has at-least understood the main points, it's been hard to try and answer all the replies and everything, so sorry if i missed anything (i know most of you ignore me anyway, but still right to do). And also for causing any unnessacery grief, but anybody can see it's very hard sometimes. People mentioned all this long before me too, so nobody should think it's for me in any way, shape or form. It would be for everyone's gaming experience and no single person could benifit from it.
  13. Re: How to solve the GC money problem. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- it's all about fairness mate, nobody is saying lose players they shouldn't, just players they should never have bought or should have sold/swapped when buying the better players. and then So you want to change the rules of the game and effect almost 5000 Gold Setup clubs over 3 or 4 managers you think are hoarding players and thats ok with you????? Not me mate, us. Your contradicting yourself,make your mind up do you's want managers in existing setups to lose players or not?? What are you talking about mate? Can you remember who said what in that conversation? because i don't know what your talking about. I only said the top bit and the Not me mate, us. Obviously talking about everybody complaining all the time. Wake up will you. Or grow up to the age you claim to be I THINK THAT MANAGERS IN GOLD SETUPS THAT HAVE ALREADY BEEN CREATED SHOULD NOT HAVE THERE SQUADS CAPPED AND BE FORCED TO SELL PLAYERS are we on the same page now I always have been mate, i'm afraid it's you that aint, as every post has proved. lmao.That statement just proves your a child and are scared of competition didnt know i was a TYPE,would you care to elaborate on that......hope your not starting to put labels on people just because they think that making managers with big squads(how big is big is yet to be determined) sell players is ridiculous Well to most mate you sound like the type that likes to keep players, regardless of what you've said in here. We can say what we like but actions prove far more. Prove you haven't got a big squad or want one that will give you or does give you an advantage by saying the old GC's need a cap too, because you have no argument against it, thats for sure. Because they do. why would only new one's when managers are here now so they have a far less chance of even getting like that? you and everone against it doesn't know what your talking about and have to keep taking half of sentence's and highlighting them because you know the whole thing is too true. like i said earlier mate, do you read everything? maybe thats why you only pull bit out from here and there, can't be bothered. lmao. one more thing to add I understand your point but an overhaul of all existing leagues will be met with fierce contempt. If we are realistic the only way this suggestion will see any fruition is if it is implemented into future championships. And the sooner the better... I rest my case..............thats what i have been saying from my first post Lmao about 500 times, Your replying to yourself now. You should lend Bed's name as it look's like you spend all day in it. Have you just woke up or something? What everybody else has said though mate, just about everybody that doesn't have a massive squad, is that it's not fair. But we can see you don't care about anything but youself.
  14. Re: How to solve the GC money problem. Bed mate, you said already created setups shouldn't be affected! that won't do any good really as people are complaining about existing setups. Mainly the one's paid for. We can get any team and players we want in other setups mate, but the one's we pay for we can't because of what you can only say are greedy managers, which you sort of are lol. Sorry for not responding though as i was caught up in other replies. It's only decent players THAT SHOULD BE PLAYED that people moan about too, so there really is no reason for a cap in all GC's. People are saying how would the money problem be solved! when thats what made me think of all this rubbish. There would be more players to buy. Easy. Eventually every successful club should have money in the bank, so it wouldn't even be a problem to begin with if they all had a fair amount of decent players to buy, or at-least a chance to, (unless a bad manager has destroyed the team of course, but then he can moan all he wants). The fact is there is far more playing now than before so they could buy players for fun, but there surely comes a time when it has to stop. I bet it was the real reason we got the financial improvement in the first place, because as we can see, the features certain people want get added, not whats best for the game. Not always anyway. Edit to add that i also have to say i was against squad caps myself. But as GC's get older and them with all the players continue to buy and outbid everyone for everyone, something needs doing. We have all been here long enough to know that money is worthless at the minute, and people complain about everything. A squad cap would sort most of them problems out, without a doubt they would.
  15. Re: How to solve the GC money problem. Try highlighting a little bit more, you might then mate.
