    First big patch - big difference?

    Okay so this is the first time I've got the game before the inevitable big patch (I usually wait around 6 months when it's cheaper) and I have to say I am hugely regretting it. I'm not sure if it's the game's fault or what, but I am finding it impossible to get into any save and have gone back...

    Don't cut off your nose to spite your face

    After getting promoted to the Premier League I lost a large proportion of my squad on free transfers because they wanted insane wages. I realise they want paying more as we're in a higher division but the fact is they're not premier league quality and were only offered a new contract so I didn't...

    A good PL underdog tactic

    I'm playing as Sheffield Wednesday. Won promotion to the Premier League but now I'm having real trouble. I usually play a 2-3-2-2-1 (the 3 being 2 wb's and a DMC) against other relegation threatened teams and a 4-4-2 when against the other teams (except the big boys) and it's going fairly well...

Have tried googling it to see if its a browser issue but its the same on IE and firefox and only seems to be on this site. Not sure if its a cookie/cache problem or gremlins on the...

    Dry Spell

    I have a striker that is currently playing really well, except for the simple fact that he can't score. He's now on a run of 12 games without a goal. His finishing is 15 and composure is 16. Not sure if there are any other attributes that affect it but he's getting tons of chances, and when I...

    Injured on international duty

    Apologies if there is already a thread about this. I've been plagued by injuries recently. Something that I can deal with as I accept it's a part of the game. What I can't accept is that they are (almost) always injured on international duty. I'm wondering if there is anything that can be done...
