    How come the Football Manager thread is never popular?

    I always read about people on this forum playing it. And theres so much to discuss! Tactics, Players, Training routines.

    Just seems strange the thread never seems to make it past 2 pages.

    Everyone is too busy playing it!

    Not sure what to start off doing on the full game. Do I take the mighty terriers to the premier league for the umpteenth time, or start umemployed and see where I end up? Decisions, decisions.

    I'm going to start unemployed for the first time. I've had a couple of years practise and I'm now ready to take the challenge.

    Though I'm not sure how far I'll get. I'm not very good haha.

    Make sure you start off as 'Sunday league player' for the full experience, semi pro at most. Otherwise you'll walk into a Football League job as soon as one becomes available which kind of defeats the point.

    It's very rewarding working your way up. I had a game on FM09 where I started at Farsley in BSN. then Rushden starting in BSP and finishing in L2, moved onto Leicester who were in L1 and took them to the Prem then moved onto Newcastle and brought them Champions League football again.

    Then FM10 came out :(

    Dynamic reputation has me way more excited than I have been for a long time! In FM05 I took MTZ Ripo Minsk from Belarus to the Champions League final, then in the offseason lost all my best players and couldn't replace them because the league's reputation was still balls :-/
    And, to clarify how I actually made it to the CL final in the first place, there was something weird about the Belarussian clubs' regens - I'd get about 20 through from really random nations like British Virgin Islands and Cape Verde! One of my rivals had this nigerian lad come through who was amazing. I got him for about 500k and then my bloody directors sold him to Bayern for 15m after the CL final. I was not happy!

    What's the cheapest people have managed to find this for?

    Get Games 23.99 appears to be the best I can find thus far.

    Xbox Live/PS3/Steam - Kokapetl
    3DS - 0903-2865-7239 - Face

    If you got a 10% off voucher code from Zavvi for Halloween then it works out at about 22.50 I think. Depends if you want to wait for the box or just download it, 1.50 isn't a massive difference granted. In previous years The Hut/Zavvi have had it on for a limited time at 17.9x, which was always nice, but I'm not sure they've done that this year (not really been looking out though as I'm thinking of breaking a three year habit and not buying it on release this time).

    That 23.99 offer is well tempting. Where have you preordered from?

    I got my retail copy today. Decided to enter the key into Steam and download it from there though, since it makes patching easier and you get an exclusive skin. The first patch is available on Steam right now as well, which you can download if you've pre-loaded already. Mine's all ready to go for midnight. :D

    Anybody know why all the French internationals can't play in friendlies? They're banned for one international game, so surely they're allowed to play for their club?

    Getgameslate?

    Bought it on release for the past 3 years, but not doing so this year. I never really get properly into it until a few months after release, and a patch or two has come along, so seems a bit pointless buying it to have it sit around doing nothing for a couple of months. Will stick with PES's ML and FM2010 for my footie fix until Christmas I think.

    Don't we have a get games category on here now? You could try having a moan in there and someone might help.
