  1. Hi guys, I just created a game world where teams have blank squads... it says this though when I try to sign anyone: the game world is already "open" though? I've never had this before, usually you can buy players as soon as the game is running. Also, there's no friendlies scheduled before the first game on 17th Nov. These are usually scheduled for every day before the first match. I can't even schedule any friendlies myself as the dates are all shaded out in grey. So..just wondering why this is so and if it's "normal" for a world of this type. I am also curious as to how squads of
  2. Re: Last Of The Big Spenders - Draft / Empty Squads yeah sorry mate, though when I used the search button for "empty squads" this was the first hit, alas...cheers anyway, I shall trouble you no more :-)
  3. Re: Last Of The Big Spenders - Draft / Empty Squads hey dudes... can I ask...what happens to teams (AI ones particularly) who still have empty squads when the season starts? do they fill up with what's left of their real life squad, or what? just interested to know as I could be starting up one of these games. cheers fellas
  4. Re: The Best Talent of 10k Mark O'Hara (Kilmarnock) 70 --> 75 John McGinn (St. Mirren) 65 --> 76 Keith Keane (Preston) 70 -->76/77 Wes Fogden (Bournemouth) 67 --> 76 Steve Cook (Bournemouth) 70 --> 78
  5. I see this option in the custom game world admin panel. Now, this isn't one of those silly rules that means you wont be able to sell a player even if an AI/external club makes an offer above any limit you set in game? I take it this just refers to the human teams? I seem to remember having an age limit selected once and externals could still buy players over that age limit. cheers!

    quick question - can you still loan out a player even if he just signed for you? by that I mean, will unmanaged teams still make offers?
  9. Re: Should This Really Be Happening On SM? interesting result...but still...3 attackers vs 3 defenders...fulham would most definitely be outnumbering on the counter attack in that formation. It can happen. I watched Sporting Gijon beat Barcelona last season with a similar tactic to that...Sporting were relegated at the end of the season though. I'm surprised more teams have not copied the formation they played against barca in that game because their pressing in midfield was immense. they played 2 central defenders, 2 wing backs, 2 holding mids, 3 attacking mids (with two drifting wide
  10. Re: 60-74 risers (divided into leagues) woohooo, Steve Cook and Danny Holmes already given the big thumbs up on SW, just awaiting final decision now. please go up to 78
  11. Re: New game....no bids being made by AI, but loans are?!?! thanks hehe. I only stopped playing the game for 6 months and so much changed in that time the engine, the interface, the loan system...all great. hopefully no more 11-0 matches..not seen one yet ok, time to sign some risers and put them all out on loan until i've reviewed them all
  12. Hi guys, I've got a game world going with some friends from another online game. We started it a week saturday back and the first league match was last night. There's still not been a single bid for anyone's players off the transfer list, and it seems a bit strange. In most other games I've played, there has been bids at least after the first match has been played. The only thing we've had so far is loan bids, which came in earlier today about the same time that clubs used to make actual transfer bids. Unless the times have changed when bids come in? It used to be around 11am GT...Just
  13. Re: Russian and Ukraine Player Analysis I think he will most certainly get an 89...he deserves it. He did get a small rise the other day though I see, but if he keeps up his current form I don't see why not.
  14. Re: Guess at next leagues to be reviewed, & discuss SM's review policy........
  15. Re: Russian and Ukraine Player Analysis I think I am going to start them myself. It's about time Kevin sodding Kuranyi dropped...but more important for teams like Anzhi to be reviewed properly, and fully.
