Same here really, but it's deffinately not anything to do with me getting older because other games still interest me. I won't be getting FM 09 until it's < £20. At the moment it's too much to pay for a game that constantly frustrates.

You prob will actaully.

Mcleish's record in Scotland is that he does well for 1-2 years with the team he inherits then he starts signing people and it goes horribly wrong :)

Happened at Rangers, Hibs and i think Motherwell(not sure on that though)

Well the players he has signed so far, mcfadden, murphy, carsley, phillips, augisten and quincy have all been top notch only bent has been poor, its the players he got from brucey that are stressing all the fans out

So am I right in thinking when you get the game you have to activate it?

That's bollocks! :mad:

It's not THAT good FFS. :D

Yeah and by the looks of things you need the internet to play it or you have to activate it by phone which is bull. If you dont have a phone or the internet you cant play the game basically.

P.S sean can you please sort that random club selector thing it keeps giving me wigan, villa and west brom and i think its doing it on purpose :)

Yup Activation is a bit extreme. I'm sure if SEGA weren't involved then SI wouldn't have had an activation service.

Haha sorry Brum. I'll add more teams to it shortly when I get the time (H)

i love how 10 years ago si made cm playable without the disk and they did it on purpose because they knew it would get pirated. They were trying to boost the popularity of the game and now there blocking us playing it early

HA
