  1. My dad compared football manager to trainspotting when I was a lad. Said it was the saddest thing he had ever seen One of my fav FM memories was setting up a hotseat multiplayer with mates on the champ manager Italia around 98 I reckon. Opening game of the season George Weah completes his hattrick to see my AC Milan tonk my mates Juve 9-0. He then hits reset on my pc and informs me there had been a power cut I also legit got a job because of FM as well , part of one of my jobs was dats analysis and on interview I was asked why I thought I could do a better job with data than the other applications. I then said on FM I would spend hours hunting for the perfect striker where I needed 6 stats in harmony for the striker to fulfil the role properly. I then explained how this same principle could be used in my job and explained it I got the job and the feedback was that I was obviously very patient and good with data, turns out one of the guys interviewing was a fellow cm addict
  2. Never clean mate. FM sits there for me like a horrible goblin I have tempered my addiction though as genuinely had gf issues in my youth because of my love of FM. Luckily my wife is a gamer so is quite happy for me to smash the odd evening of FM but I am careful these days to play with intent not just mindlessly clicking next. Excited for my 29/30 season picked up some real gens and have a reworked midfield, my defence is a bit ropey but my strikers are top end. Playing a 4-3-3 mainly because that's the suited my players and recruitment best when I started the save. Expect to have to use wingers over strikers soon though as I won't hms **** the league's this time round
  3. Why cut Maxi out? With little under 2 weeks left until Hull its safe to say hes still a Norwich player and if anything had / was going to happen it would have happened already. I can see why you cut Milot yet crazier things have happened.
  4. I first dabbled with Championship Manager 93 and have been addicted ever since. I regret to admit I would play as Man Utd as I was a kid and would sign Eadie and Sutton most games. I played as Norwich a little bit around 98/99 but usually I find myself playing English lower leagues. I have managed such greats as Guiseley, Dover,, Southport, Blyth Spartans. I did play a lot as Lowestoft Town but in recent years got a bit burnt out with them. My current game sees me in 2029/30 season playing as FC Isle of Mann and about to start my first season in the Van National. I can assure you though Norwich are an established mid table Prem team in my game , captained by Josh Sargent! I also just signed a American / English regen goalkeeper from them. Ironically their star regen is one Nicky Cantwell. Update: Just checked Norwich, actually captained by Donny van de Beek who we signed for £2.1m in 25/26 !! Managed by Eddie Howe who has been in post for just short of 4 years, he replaced Malky who was bought in following Dean Smith's sacking 24/1/24 *shudders* they kept him that long?! Farke has been in post at BMG for just over 7 years!
  5. FC Isle of Man, game year is 2029/30 season.
  6. That's just it isn't it. Frankly staying at PSG showed that he was a mercenary, if he really wanted to further himself and the national team it would have been serie a, la Liga or the prem. I don't think he cares it's just make as much money as possible before the age of 40.
  7. Ha yeh kinda my thoughts. My only football knowledge on that region is football manager based so yeh, on paper my van national team could give the Saudi national team a run out to be fair.
  8. What word was caught by the swear filter? I genuinely don't know enough about the culture etc to not sound ignorant. From what I gather no alcohol or drugs (outside the super rich I expect?) No gay / women's rights which comes hand in hand with some nasty punishments? The only thing I have to go on is my father in law who was working in the middle east in the 80s he claims to have smoked a load of pot , drank loads of whiskey, Rip covers off books so that they didn't offend someone and watched public hangings. I realise my lack of Saudi knowledge is basic and borderline offensive but it's like, it's not on my holiday destination list and never has been.
  9. So let me paint out what ACTUALLY happened..... The club invites MA to take a look at us We roll over and get tonked by Spurs The local rag runs a story, MA (who already said, yeh nah) is front and centre and its egg on the face of the club To save face the club works with MA to make it look like something will happen, in the mean time MA says that Webber and Smith are "The men" which actually means "Look at those two ****ing planks" in business talk. MA never was and never will join the board The fans wet themselves waiting for something to happen that the club and media bottled at the first step. Although dramatised, I bet im right.
  10. Yeh, they certainly not going to Saudi for the quality of football being played. Has to be League Two? Or is that really unfair?
  11. Become part of that 1% But agreed, its unethical and frankly disgusting to have the means to potentially erase world hunger or cure cancer yet instead you buy a super yacht with a crapper made of solid gold.
  12. I think SKY and UEFA got there years before the Saudis,
  13. There needs to be a 2 week soft ban / throttle for any idiot starting a thread calling for a new striker.
  14. Yeh as noted the journalism has become lazy and poor over recent years. Sub to the athletic if you want some decent football news granted its not going to be heavily looking at our club though
  15. Rashica was actually signed as the buendia replacement and seen by farke as the creative player he wanted. Ironically milot was the one signing farke wanted and he actually got from Webber. Clearly it didn't work out for him here though, that said Dean Smith regressed the squad
  16. Never seen Sargent play outside of the radio?? Strong and athletic are probably two of josh best qualities
  17. Haha I'm just fishing mate, chicken little is the one biting and getting his knickers in a twist
  18. Your retort was as weak wristed as the afore mentioned pathetic fumble. Your embarrassing
  19. Nice fumbled attempt at a recovery. Leave the pathetic fumbles to your interaction with the same / opposite sex in future
  20. Reminds me of Faustino Asprilla, sulked around Newcastle with his translator attached at his side for 2 years
  21. Look on the right side, Dean Smith got fired
  22. Why are we stuck with Delia? Shiek Abusethaladies al Wadsofcash needs to make an offer.... Failing that where's Wolverine ??
  23. Yeh not looking forward to day one like usual. Hopefully we will start strong and look good. Time will tell
