Im not sure its worth downloading to be honest. The interface seems the same as 05 and I cant see much that will stand out in the demo. I may download it if someone here does and tries it out, then reccomends it, till then I supose Ill wait till it comes out.

I would recommend it, but only if you have a good computer because it takes a while to process all the fixtures on the English Quick Start.

Yup, it's best to try it in the early hours as less people will be downloading it.

The demo is too hard for its own good. I'm up for a challenge (Nottingham Forest to the premiership) but this is ridiculous. I found myself pleased with a 1-1 draw against Livingston with Chelsea. The game focuses on the team talk and, unless you say and do everything right, the game will undoubtedly end in failure. Add to that the fact that you can't let the assistant manager set the training regimes and you have the demo summed up. It mght be my stupidity as a manager but it seems as though SI want us to fail. I like everything else about the game, oh and another thing everytime a goal is scored it has to come from a mistake from an opposing player.

Yeh i found it hard to score but I eventually started to. The 4-4-2 seems to work best with passing focused down the wings.

Training is so simple on FM 2006, there shouldn't be any need to let your Asst do it :D

I am sure you can let your Asst do the team talks. Unless that feature got removed.

Im going to download it now, want to see exactly how good and involved the team talks are.

I remember previous demos of CM4 and onwards. These were very hard too and most of the goals scored were very very simlar and used to score a lot of offside goals too, Im sure SI will panned this out and serve us up some high quality gaming.

Yeah this feature is in it, go into the Manager options bit.

So far so good for FM06, apart from in my Newcastle team a few of the backroom staff seem to be playing staff aswell. :rolleyes:

Can't have it all eh?

From what i have played i would say it's still an early stage demo. Alot of things to fix but it's looking good.I like the new way to look at stats :D

Will take a while to get used to team talks aswell.

Whats the point of a Beta demo, I mean a demo is a preview of the game why would we want to test the demo. Im guessing that another demo will be released before the game is? I mean 60mgs just for a demo which is a beta sounds like a waste of time.
