  1. I'm on a mobile but I think I've fixed it
  2. A game Fox couldnt have played in anyway. Motherwell wouldnt let him get cup tied.
  3. Won't be streamed in the UK, it's still covered by the blackout rule.
  4. Greedy b*****d. I didn't have lunch. So I had one before the game and one at half time Yup, very tasty
  5. Am I the only one who likes the pies? I had two on Saturday
  6. There werent 45 away fans. It was 13 or 14, dont remember which. The communication has broken down somewhere between the confirmation of the crowd, it being read over the tannoy and put on the updates.
  7. I think you should listen to Patons interview I mean everyone should listen to Patons interview anyway but he talks about playing through the middle with Gav
  8. I can't bring any of these youngsters, as the game says I have four domestic loans... I have two plus one from England
  9. Nothing against the actor but the character is fuckin awful. Totally one dimensional and not funny at all. Still, an enjoyable series
  10. I'm four episodes in and finding Colins new girlfriend far more annoying than Cathy. She also looks about 20 years older than him
  11. I dont know if he is or isnt. All I can do right now is go and tear up his contract in my Football Manager game
  12. If you had witnessed that second half you would be angry
  13. Dont think we can loan anyone in until January, can we? What did Hendrie do? We all assumed it was dissent, but there didnt seem anything controversial about the goal at all
  14. Embarrassing is the only word to describe that second half performance. I get the Alloa fans are happy with the result but I wouldnt get too carried away, you will not come up against a worst defensive performance than that again this season - well maybe three more times I dont think I've ever seen such a turn around in performance levels between one half and the other, nor such a spectacular collapse in any game I've watched. First half we were reasonably comfortable and, after scoring early, had several good chances on the break to extend the lead. Second half, we were never, ever in the game, offered nothing up front and no control in midfield. Obviously, we were also awful defensively. The back three couldnt deal with crosses or any high ball forward and Currie did his usual line inspector impression, watching as Alloa played the ball past him. The whole defence were at fault, but surely now Currie is finished with us? Fox has to start next week and lets hope we bring Cowie back as soon as possible as back up.
  15. No, three at the back. Alloa had a lot of the ball after we scored without doing an awful lot. We've wasted at least four good breaks forward and Alloa scored with the rebound from a corner
  16. I think there are plenty of women who would argue against the fact that its a different sport. I know you dont mean it this way but saying so could be considered quite derogatory. As I said, you dont need to just make the attributes worse. The fastest player in the womens game could still have speed of 20. They will only ever be compared against other women players, so how they are ranked against the men is irrelevant. The economy issue you describes is something fundamental, not a specific issue to the womens game. As I said, I cant see how the womens economy can be significantly different to similar sized mens competitions. Seems like what you are describing is writing a new game for womens football which fixes some of the issues in the main game. Wouldnt it be better if they just fixed the main game and made it for both? Releasing, what is in effect, two games causes all sorts of problems. What if the transfer system in the "mens" version is better? What if the match engine in the "womens" version is better? Seems like an awful lot of effort to go to just to seperate the two out and potentially cause arguments. Especially at a time where the womens game is making a lot of progress in raising the profile of the sport. "Here you go girls, we've given you your own game, cause your footballs not as good as ours" seems like a dangerous message. Although, I wouldnt put it past Miles, to be fair.
  17. So, genuine question, why would the women's game need a totally new matching engine and economy? Eta - and for the record, using "that's what SI are doing" is not going to win any arguments
  18. The only changes to the match engine would be cosmetic, to add new skins for female players. The game already copes with wildly varying finances from the EPL to lower leagues, why would womens football be any different? Attributes is an interesting one. But, as there's no cross over, it doesn't really matter. The best women players could be graded the same as the best men. They're never playing each other or being transfered between the same clubs, so it won't matter. So, we're rally just back to competition structure and data.
  19. All fair points. Does feel like Miles is accepting of the current pace of change and it could do with someone to actually drive things. Doesn't seem like women's football would be too difficult to implement. Add the league structure and data and its done. Can't see whys there would need to be any do any actual development. Let's hope they are splitting their time and working on long term developments as well as year to year releases
  20. Up until the last few years, each game was noticeably different and, with a few exceptions, better each year. They had less staff then and definitely didn't have the backing of a big player like Sega. You're absolutely right about the iterative nature of software. However, what's annoying people is that they are being asked to pay full price again for, essentially, FM22.3. If that's how they want to work the development cycle, fine but the pricing has to match. You can't tout a new release, and charge for one, every year and not deliver. I don't want people sacked but I actually think the series would benefit from new management.
  21. Ever fancied a job at SI?
  22. But, as Moonster said, SI wont care if people keep buying it. Its on Gamepass, so Im going to give it a go, see just how bad it is. Anyone know if the editor is available if you install from Gamepass? ETA - never mind, I found it at the bottom of the page - £6.29!
  23. But if you take longer to do things, there's more time to fix issues. If they gave themselves longer, they could iteratively work through development, testing, bug fixing, retesting etc. There might not be significantly more changes than now but it should be a far better product. And besides, if they double the testing they do now, zero doubled is still zero. All academic as there's no chance they'll ever move to only releasing every two years
  24. Not me, not this year *smug face* The really frustrating thing this year seems to be that, despite not actually changing the game from last year, they've made it worse and introduced a whole load of new bugs and issues. I think for years, most people have put up with bug's every year because we felt we were getting a genuinely new game. This year just feels like the worst of both worlds.
