Hopefully this thread will reduce the number of threads and give people a little place to vent their frustrations with FM. Please try and not to spam it though, particularly those of you who like to go off-topic and pretend like you're on MSN.

Work permit troubles? Player sent off in the first minute of the Champions League Final? Can't stop hitting the woodwork? etc...

---------------------

So last night I was playing on my game in the Third Tier of Brazilian football. I came top of my group and made it through the last 16 knockout stage by beating one of the favourites to win the league in a pretty awesome second leg. In the Quarter Finals I was drawn against a fairly easy team and won the first leg 0-3. So it's time to play the second leg, Semi-Finals here I come, right? Wrong... game crashes so I have to over-turn my 1-0 deficit from the Last 16 all over again.

Also, you can tell SI haven't put too much effort into this league I'm playing. Throughhout the season I was playing one game a week with no mid-week games then with 6 games too go... they all take place in the span of 5 days. I played one team twice in one day, home & away. My players were absolutely exhausted by the end of it. It was the second game in a day which stopped me from getting my 10 clean sheets in a row achievement too.

2-0 up aginst Dunston with South Shields they are 2nd I am trying to climb the table. They go down to 10 men with 15 minutes to go, I am safe and dry nothing can go wrong. I go counter, tell the lads to retain possesion. I go to a 4-5-1 they are playing 3-2-4 now.

So they score with 10 minutes to go then in the 97th minute, when 4 was added on, they score a screamer from 30 yards. So frustarting as in the league I am in, Northern League Division One Tier 9, players should no be able to do that!!!

If that's not sarcasm then there's no hope for you.

Not saving a game properly and saving over the 'auto save'. I also seem to concede all my goals in the first 15m of games.

Hey all,

This is a stupid one for everyone out there but i cant find where to change the size of the database!!!

On the last edition you were asked what size database you would like to have during the set up but i cant find it anywhere...

Any help?

It's there again on the set-up in the same place where it's always been. Look harder.

it is there on the league selection menu, i havnt had that many probs with the game i do worry that the new tactics wizard has made the game to easy i made a 4-1-2-3 and only changed things like tempo, def line, width and set play instructions and my tactic is epic against most teams and i think if i used it with a top 4 team or a team with stupid amounts of money i could prob win the prem by 30 points

Ok, I thought it was the shortlist thing, when a player is in your shortlist and teams start bidding for all players in there, I was going to tell you to create a new one and de-activate it. I discovered this by chance, when I was trying to buy some players very quiety, and suddenly is a free for all, and never got my player.
It used to get me proper cheesed off,
