    Depends where he's getting them from. In my experience, the 5 loan limit only applies to domestic loans. There's no limit on how many players you can loan from clubs in England or abroad. Could be wrong though. My FM knowledge refers to older versions.

    Used to like Chelsea when I was younger back when they had Zola and Poyet. Now though, especially since I went down to Stamford Bridge, I've took great pleasure in their failings. Feel a bit sorry for Sarri though.

    Got a few things in the pipeline. Away on a lads holiday in April to Munich and looking into getting tickets for the Augsburg game that weekend. Away back to Germany in May for my usual trip to Schalke, but like last year, gonna take the girlfriend a few other places en route, which of course means more foreign fitba. Last year we did Amsterdam, Brussels and Paris as well as Dusseldorf and Koln over in Germany. Only game I took in apart from the Schalke game was FC Utrecht vs VVV Venlo. This year we're going to Reykjavik, Copenhagen and Basel before we head to Germany. Already spotted Valur vs IA on the Saturday night I'm in Iceland. Valur are champions and only play 20 minutes walk from my hotel so that'll be interesting. The Danish league will still be ongoing when I'm in Copenhagen, but don't arrive til Sunday evening and they do a split like us so can't gauge it yet. There's usually Monday night games though so hoping for a bit of luck. A game in Basel is probably off limits. The Swiss league is also ongoing when I arrive but matches haven't been re-scheduled for TV yet so I've no idea if I'll get a chance. That said, provisional fixtures show a midweek round when I arrive.

    As mentioned a couple of pages before you, I was at Chelsea vs Newcastle a couple of weeks before albeit in the away end. Toon fans noisy as ever, but rest of the ground was silent. Even after the game, walking to the tube and on the tube, everyone was just so dull and lifeless. Going down to St James on Saturday to watch Newcastle vs Huddersfield.

    Got FM09 in my collection but haven't played for a while. Got one with Hearts where I'm about 5 years in and got feeder clubs in USA and China to boost our image. Not working mind.

    Does anyone still play old editions of the game? I'm still addicted to FM07. Got a wee file on the go which is keeping me hooked. Started off in Serie B with Bari, took them straight up despite being in the league with Juve and Napoli. Finished 10th 2 years in a row in Serie A before leaving for pastures new. Best offer I got was Catania back in B, took it and they were a mess. Left them halfway through the season in 7th. Got offered the Livi job in the First Division which I took. Guided them from near relegation to 3rd, and had 2 seasons pushing for promotion but didn't take them up. While this was going on, I got the Italy job but failed miserably. Got to EURO 2012 and got papped out the groups by Germany and, ahem, Scotland. Stagnated a bit at Livi so resigned and got the job as 1860 Munich manager. Won the Bundesliga 2 on the final day and doing not bad in the Bundesliga.

    Yeah I'd say that looks like the most likely outcome. Out of curiosity, where did Tweedmouth Rangers come from? Were they previously playing in the English set up? I just can't recall seeing them in EoS before the last year or 2.

    Excellent! Just look out for the tall, fat **** with the glasses on the touchline.
  10. Football Podcasts

    Only podcast I listen to 'religiously' is Athletico Mince. Went through a phase of listening to all the Totally Football offerings (Mon & Thursday football show, Scottish, Golazzo AND Football League) but it's all a bit too much. Listened to The Terrace a few times but again, 2 hour long episodes a week feels just too long for me. I dunno if it feels right or not, but I've actually started listening to the 30 minute 'best of' daily episodes of Hawksbee & Jacobs on Talksport.

    We play our home games at the new Portobello High School, got Easthouses there on Sunday. They cuffed us 12-1 last time round, but they also cuffed us 13-0 way back last season and we pumped them out the Edinburgh Cup after, so I expect a response.
  12. Random Matches You Are Going To...

    Yeah loved it! Looking back through this thread at your posts as I notice you go to a lot of LEAFA games on a Sunday. Don't suppose you've been down to watch the famous Broughton Albion yet?
  13. Random Matches You Are Going To...

    I was there too. 2nd Derby but the first in the Nordkurve. Toyed with the idea of going to see Werder vs Fortuna but ended up going to Viktoria Koln vs Bonner SC.

    One of my favourite wonderkids on FM07 was a 14 year old Chilean striker called Nicolas Millan. Could sign him, but he usually had to sit in the reserves for 3 or 4 years til he could get a work permit and you couldn't loan him out as most countries you need to be 17/18 to go on loan.

    Been following the EoS closely this season. Great to see the Scottish pyramid really taking off, but this is where you can't help but feel we need to reshuffle the top 4 leagues into top 2 perhaps.
