#52292 patrick1 : The AC Milan VS Arsenal seemed entertaining.

Certainly was! have added a video from it now.


Managed to overwrite my game file, so had to restore it, meaning all that was posted today... well, count it as something that will have to be repeated...
Hi ejay. I am a arsenal fan and started to play with arsenal too :) I am finishing the 3 season right now :D
I buyed ganso like you but for me he is playng like a god and i think i know watt is the problem that he had in your team. He is not performing good beacuse of your tactic...cause Ganso best position is AMC not MC i tryed him as MC for some games and he played very bad and then AMC and the performance was very good...and your tactic dosent have AMC positiions so thats why he performed bad. With your tactic ganso is a bad option. Hamsik as MC much better a very good buy ;) i tryed javi martinez and he is overrated player, i dont like him in game. Marvin martin much better. I am using the 4-2-3-1 and a 4-4-2 as suport when playing away with bigger teams like Manchester Chelsea Liverpool. In this game very much depend the tactic too... btw how you put the printscreens here?

Season 6 - Time travel


Since i was smart enough to overwrite my saved game here this story has now traveled back in time 4 games, so meaning the last 4 results has now actually not happened, the worst part is saying goodbye to the 4 away goals at San Siro, doubt that will happen twice in a row even tho I can hope for it.
@ejay:
Your posts have an admittedly excellent layout as you seem to take full advantage of the most bbcode tags available. Nicely done mate!
Given that you are pretty much familiar with bbcode and forums, I'd love to read your remarks on how to improve this place. Next site version is already in development and should be ready by August.

@vitalie:
I recommend reading this tutorial - Football Manager Screenshots Tutorial, it explains how to capture a screenshot, how to optimize it for web use, where to upload it and how to embed in the forums.
It has been a really long time since you last updated, I hope there is an update soon on the way :)

Returning to the blog


Recently there haven't been much updating here, but have been playing some, lost some momentum when my save went south, but has moved past that now, way past it. Have played trough another season without updating here and started the season after that with the friendlies.

Will do a season review of the last season I have had like I have done before here so you can see what I have been up to. So look out for an update, shouldn't be too long before it comes, just have to get it written.

Until next time.
@ejay: I know from personal experience it is always harder to create the habit of play, update, play, update and if I got too far ahead of were the post was, it was always a mission to write up.

Congratulations on the story though, it has certainly made for great entertainment at my house, so well done.
A few questions I hope you won't mind answering :)
How did you change your manager's name?
How do you get more clubs interested in your players in transfers and loans?
When you first load a game, it asks your for your name - default is Firstname Lastname

The way I see to do it is to accept most of the offers on the players - I learned that the hard way - if you don't it'll lead to problems with either contracts or discord in the ranks. But the best way to get other teams interested and therefore increase value is to play them often and keep their morale up.

As an aside, there is a section to ask questions like this, it shouldn't be in the story thread.

If I had wanted to ask in the questions section, I would have, this question was supposed to be answered by ejay, as I was asking him.
#58177 MohamedElleithy : A few questions I hope you won't mind answering :)

Hi, I changed my name by giving myself a nickname, that is an easy way to do it, to change your actual name you either have to do it at the start of the game or go in and edit it(note: know what your doing if you start on that).

And when it comes to getting other teams interested, what I see needed when offloading players is to put them in the shopping window by letting them play some games, other than that I sell some players for free with 50% of next sale. For some players that's pretty much the only way to get some money for them in the future, some players you won't get 50% on either, is hard with players with low interest.

Btw. ask as many questions as you like.

Thank you, I do enjoy writing this, especially if I know people are reading it.

Thanks for the positive reply that really helped :)

Games of the season



Carling Cup
3rd Cardiff 2-1 Arsenal

Not much to brag about here, straight out of the cup against Cardiff, not the worst that could happen, leaves room for other games when you first are meant to go out of the cup, no one wants any of the spots under no 1.

FA Cup
3rd Lincoln 0-2 Arsenal
4th Arsenal 1-2 Sheff Wed


Champions League
Group Arsenal 6-0 Malaga
Group Dortmund 3-2 Arsenal
Group Arsenal 5-0 Fiorentina

Because I have no idea on how to view stats like goals scored, assists and average match ratings on one page without having to go and look at each individual player I wont be posting the stats like i have been doing before, if you know how to do this easy, let me know and I will get to post all the stats.

Don't know if you noticed, but my last game was amazing , winning the game 12-0! setting a new record in scoring goals, you can see all the goals here:


6 Abel Hernandez
3 Jack Wilshere
2 Gervinho
1 Thomas Vermaelen
1 Eden Hazard

Winning the league!


Yes! I won the league! An amazing season finished on top, with a margin of 2 points, finally I have won the Premier League as well.
