    Honest views sort on whether to buy

    Heya lads, didn't get on too well with 11 and I've not touched the Sony forums since they were hacked. Apologies to mods if I've missed a thread on the same subject as I've not searched too far back for a graveyard dig. Sooo.... Is this one worth getting or have they bolted on some more daft...

    Aston Villa and the summer ahead

    Taking it here rather than derailing transfer thread. The point about some of the players you'll understandably want shifting on is that currently most of them are on fairly long term contracts with very favourable wages.

    Threading (ie performance option)

    Did a search and didn't find it covered anywhere. The game option which can be enabled 'threading'. Worth doing for a 6 core? FM certainly recognises 6 cores which surprised me. But any performance advantage to enabling threading or better to leave it off?

    Robbie Earle sacked as pundit

    Guardian So every ITV pundit has 35-40 tickets for 'family members and friends' for each match? The pundits must have paid a fortune to get them all out to South Africa... <) More seriously, it's a bit of a disgrace that so many 'hospitality' tickets are taken out of the game. It's as bad as...

    Zebedee - From Unemployment to Boredom!

    Let's see if I can keep this one up for a bit longer than I managed to with 09. It takes so long to process it should do. XD I'd welcome any posts - but I'd really, really appreciate it if you didn't mention any players I should/could buy. I don't look at the editor to find out CA/PA for a...
