    A guide to managing Toulouse FC

    So upon entering my 6th season with Toulouse and still having alot of fun, I thought I'd share what I've learnt about the team incase anyone else is interested in starting as them. Why manage Toulouse? Simply because of the squad. Although they are predicted to finish 8th, you can quite easily...

    Are fullbacks bugged this year?

    I couldn't find a similar thread for this. (Except for ones that generalized buggy players in the beta.) Let me give you an overview of my fm save first before I explain. First season with Toulouse, I came 2nd. Second season, third and in the champs league final (wtf!). Third season (this...

    Can't improve youth recruitment?

    For the past 3 seasons i've tried to ask the board to improve my youth recruitment, but I always get greeted with this: My facilities: So as you can see my youth recruitment is (I think) 1 off the max which would be Extensive. Money isn't the problem here as I have 165m in the bank, and...

    Conceding way too many goals from set pieces

    Ok, thought i'd ask for help as i've tried everything and am getting too ****** off to play. It seems most people are finding this demo much easier than fm 2011 but it's the opposite for me. I've tried just making a 4-1-2-2-1 tactic and change hardly anything as apparently that's the way to go...

    Fresh Meat

    Anyone watch the first episode? If so what did you think? I thought it was pretty good, definately going to follow the series. Jack whitehall & that scottish guy were pretty amazing.

    Ross Kemp: Extreme World

    Anyone else been watching this? Couldn't find a thread on it. Real eye opening programme though, always watched the gangs series' too. Shocking to see the state of haiti 10 months on, and how bad things are in juarez!

    First team/youth coaches?

    Ok so ever since I found out about the 5 star coach rating, I simply got 9 (?) general coaches (1 for each training attribute). And then I'd just use the same coaches on both the senior and the youth schedules.. though for some reason the GK coaches almost always only got a 2.5 star youth rating...

    Unable to generate fake player faces?

    So I had the option "use real and generated pictures" selected, and my regens had faces for the first season. But all of a sudden they no longer do, and when I checked the preferences, that option was greyed out.. ?

    Fixtures re-arranged for no reason?

    Ok i've been having problems with this. Constantly throughout my season i'll realise on the saturday or so that my upcoming game for that day has just disappeared and been re-arranged weeks/months down the line. However it's not because of a fixture clash caused by cup competitions. I don't get...

    Lack of top regens..

    So I started a game with barca, keeping their philosophy of bringing young spanish talent through the youth team. With players like puyol, xavi, villa and abidal getting old i'd need good regens pretty sharpish. Anyway the end of the season comes, regens are generated, so I open up player...

    Wage Bug??

    Can anyone tell me what the **** has happened here?! (see screens) As you can see my player wages is under 2 mil, which means it should be around 7.5m a month. But so far 28m has been spent and I still have 1 week of the month left!

    Morale Broken?

    The majority of the season I had most of my team at superb morale, which takes a while to build up. Then after 1 poor game, virtually all of them drop to "poor". A bit drastic, but maybe understandable. But yet after 45 mins of that game, 2 players played below par (not even anything ridiculous...

    Creating Staff

    So I was thinking of starting a game again as Lyon, but the problem I found is there's a lack of quality french staff (I like my staff to all be from the same nation as the club). That and I find it tedious searching for more once they get old. So I was planning on creating all my own staff...

    Config Coding for custom kits?

    Ok so I made some custom kits and a config file again, following the instructions for 2010. But when I refresh the in-game display & sound, the kits don't appear under the Info tab. The logo's on the default kits also disappeared. If anyone has figured out how it works this time, it would be...
