I started well with Liverpool but have tailed off now after bwt 9 games.

I like the match engine, player movements and stuff seems to be more realistic. and the confidnece changes are excellent. I like how you can see fans morale, and opinions on players not playing well etc.

I'm getting frustrated playing this as closing down isn't working like it should be and I'm losing games because of it. :(

I am finding it hard to get a tactic that works much harder than 07. I stayed up on last day of the season me sunderland and boro two of the 3 went down boro won at liverpool 2-1, sunderland won at everton 2-0 and i scored in last minute at chelsea to win 1-0 and stayed up. I love the training seems to work much faster and i like it how your coaches have training reports etc cameron jerome has improved as a footballer over the last 6 months his first touch has been most noticeable. I like the captain vice captain thing too. I just thing its very hard so far and 4-4-2 i just cant get it to work i won most games playin 4-5-1 but i dont like it i prefer 4-4-2 but that just dont seem to work:mad:

Integrating Demo

I just bought the game this morning and will be playing it when I get home. I am around 4 months into the season of the demo version and wondered if there was anyway to continue playing this game on the full version?

ie can I save my demo game onto the full version rather than having to start again?!? I am doing quite well - 1 goal conceded in 10 league games!!!

PLEASE...

I don't see how a pirate copy of the game would have any more bugs than the original it is burned from. Unless said original was a beta version, but other than that, meh.

I'm happy to report that the saved game from the demo WAS indeed transferrable to the full version of the game and I have taken up where I left off. I have not noticed any bugs as yet after doing this and all seems to be working fine. All it took was moving one file (in the saved games folder named 'games' in My Documents / Sports Interactive).

I do though have slight bug to report. I was playing a quarter final in the league cup when 7 of my starting 11 and 3 of my 5 subs from the previous game were made unavailable due to them travelling with to be with their international squads.

This wasn't african or american based squads, but scottish and english squads. SURELY this is a bug! I was knocked out on penalties to a lower league team!! GUTTED!

Has anyone else suffered from this bizarre scenario?

I guess this has been fixed in the final release. Sounds like something too big to miss for full release.

dougalputt, check the euro 2008 when it comes up and see if all the teams that finished bottom of their qualifiers are in the finals, cos thats one of the bugs that people have been getting when they transfer their demo save to the full version.

I do wub this game, obviously. Though i've decided i don't like the new skin, and the way one or two things have changed in the layout remind me of the first CM after the split :yuck:
