  1. Re: Hilarious new free comedy film Cheers. Yeah, I've directed for Nike, ASDA, Orange, Mitre, Princes Trust, BBC .etc .etc but this is my first feature. We're releasing it free on the interwebs in the hope of building a mini cult following.
  2. Hi Guys, Long time Soccermanager player here (and filmmaker). My new film is released, FREE, online on 22nd April. I wanted to share the trailer with you all. It's a mockumentary, comedy. Any thoughts are gratefully appreciated - I hope you all fancy watching it in April. KH3-xe2j9X4
  3. Re: Player Concerns (please read the Online Help if looking for help) Do you know what? I give in. I quit. I run a small film company, we're about to launch a feature and this game has now become unmanageable for me. Trying to contend with these concerns and watching my team slowly die isn't fun. I've been playing this game since Feb 12th 2008, 609 games - 1613pts. I've loved building a great squad and dominating my gameworld. Lots of trophies and success. I've had issues with various elements of the game, most critically the match system and stadium building. The ratings system and the bu
  4. Re: Player Concerns (please read the Online Help if looking for help) Which squads use just 17/18 players through a season despite all competitions and injuries? SM requires you to have essentially 2 teams to be able to play league and cup. We're now being told that one of these teams will need to be made up of low rated kids, no matter how much success our club has had, money we have or decent players we have. A "Lukaku" or "Ballotelli" would be content with playing a third of league games and 100% of European and domestic cup games in real life (they'd be lucky to get that). In game th
  5. Re: Player Concerns (please read the Online Help if looking for help) This works to a point. Man City are trying to offload Adebayor, they aren't trying to sell Tevez - I'm not sure who the other ".etc" are. Mancini is frustrated at losing out to Hazard, he also wants RVP and another CB. This isn't inkeeping with the game. Chelsea didn't play Lukaku last year hardly and he's on loan this year - I can't do that to my Lukaku without him getting concerns and leaving. I get your point, but I think the concerns have crossed over a line and have ended up at a point where they do not work, no lo
  6. Re: Player Concerns (please read the Online Help if looking for help) Machine, you make some interesting points and seem pretty pro the new concerns levels/issues. It's a different pov from most of us so it is interesting to read. How do you counter the fact that if you start the game with a Man City (for example), not only will concerns prevent you from improving your squad, you won't even be able to hold on to what you have? The fact that the game doesn't even allow you to hold onto a squad as it is in real life is the perfect demonstration that the concerns are wrong. The fact that you n
  7. Re: Player Concerns (please read the Online Help if looking for help) Agreed. It's completely and totally bonkers. Most premier league squads are this size anyway without having hordes of players demanding to leave. In real life young players would be more than happy to play every cup game and a portion of league games. My 89/90 rated youngsters are revolting because of this, and they're essentially playing for a Barca type squad. I appreciate 89/90 rated players may not seem like reserves - but these guys ARE getting game time (obviously not enough, 25%-30% league and all cup) in a squad
  8. Re: Player Concerns (please read the Online Help if looking for help) Another wave of concerns today. Really gutted with how this game has shaped out.
  9. Re: Player Concerns (please read the Online Help if looking for help) But this all goes back to my post a couple of pages back. It's hard to compare these examples from real-life to in-game as the logistics are so different. To copy and paste:-

  11. Re: Player Concerns (please read the Online Help if looking for help) Just wanted to add my two-penneth with regards SM and whether it should mirror real life. People have used Neymar as an example of a player who gets unhappy on SM when not playing enough games. It's an extreme example as he is a force of nature and highly hyped in real life, but I'll go with it. Neymar in real life would probably expect to play in the majority of most games for pretty much any club on the planet - but in real life he is not a "90 rated player" - he'd probably be a 94. SM obviously can't give him that as t
  12. Re: Matchday Experience I really really like the new match day experience. I don't know how much is "dressing" and how much is actual nuts and bolts - but it's soooo much more fun than simply clicking a button to see the score. I even had a goal ruled offside today - which was frustrating, but lots of fun (I cheered, then cursed). I am not happy with the changes to concerns, it's kind of spoiling the game for me - but credit to SM, I think the new match experience is tremendous.
  13. Re: Messi for Ozil and Di Maria Nope. Not for me. But I can see how those are competitive - and I can see why someone would take those deals.
  14. Re: Messi for Ozil and Di Maria There's not a deal in the game that could make me sell Messi - but that may just be me!
  15. Re: casillas Yeah, I wouldn't sell. Like the above poster said, unless you're getting Pique/Ozil plus cash - don't do it.
  16. Re: Chinese up next. Nice one! I couldn't find it at all.
  17. Re: Players for sale but not really for sale... +1 to the Good Doctor.
  18. Re: Guess at next leagues to be reviewed? It's going to be the Chinese ratings. There was a thread for some Chinese ratings that never happened - no idea what's become of it.
  19. Hi Guys, There used to be a "chinese ratings" thread (possibly named something else. These have been confirmed as the next rating changes. Anyone got any idea where the old thread has gone? Thanks, Andy
