Fairly similar to me then, I can't get any good results unless I play a form of 4-1-2-2-1 even though I prefer 4-4-2 and have players better suited to it.

Still dabbling with tactics though, Turned down 2 bids from Cardiff for Kasim and Thompson in the first season, both over 1m each player as I only get 60% of transfer revenue thanks LP!

Murray is awesome but on massive wages and attracking interest from Villa so any bid I will take to free up wages, Obika is a good target man too, Conroy excellent in defence so far but Branco is shocking as is Rodgers.

See Williams...even I can win matches with this team (Murray excepted as he is still playing for us in this database version).

Fitness and team bonding is the key.

I tried to replicate in a different save game the real Swindon tactic of not pressing but keeping possession and playing short passes, not shooting often from distance etc and I got stuffed 3 matches in a row!

You've got to fight for what you want, for all that you believe
It's right to fight for what we want, to live the way we please

As long as we have done our best, then no one can do more
And life and love and happiness, are well worth fighting for

And we should never count the cost, or worry that we'll fall
It's better to have fought and lost, than not have fought at all

If you buy it let us know.
Trying to buy Motorsport Manager but the transaction won't go through. Searched the error message online - seems a common one, all the online advise hasn't bloody worked.

I got this a month or so ago - similar feel to FM if you're a fan.

I had a good first season, then cocked up the contracts of my drivers for the second and was left with a great car, team of engineers etc, expanded offices and facilities - then basically three learner drivers as my team. Not a hope in hell and turned to Project Highrise instead (I'd really recommend that game), followed by a FM14 rejuvenation.

Out of context this is not a good statement.

Even in context it reveals a deep level of geekery, determination, hard work and, ultimately, sadness and an unfulfilled life.

I am a part of this too.

Nice to see the away fans have plenty of seating at Vicarage Road in 2032   Cheesy

Just survived the club being taken over for the second time, some chap bought the club for 130m-ish when I got them to the Premier League, and it was valued at 1.05bn when the new guy came in, 10 years after he bought it.
