    PC only I believe. But in a sense the handheld ones are already 'classic' mode,it's just an attempt to offer a similar gameplay pace for the pc market.

    No it isn't. The minor issues from the beta are gone.

    I had a quick look at classic mode and instantly disliked it. I like all the realness off it all such as the under 18s squad, the staff etc. not looking forward to sorting all the training out mind.

    Is there actually anything new in this version other than classic mode?

    It does seem very similar so far, no real change in player database.

    Downloading now. I really hope it's easier to sell players. If I have a player valued at 30m with years left on his contract and lots of clubs are interested I expect bids of at least 40m +.

    Yeh but you'll probably get bids with 30 monthly instalments and all that.

    So I take it Porto and benfica are called FCP and SLB respectively because of legal issues?

    Skidrow version leaked at all the usual places.

    60% of the playerbase in 2012 used the Skidrow version.

    Support your local indie!

    I used to be pretty good at this game. Now I'm one full season in and I've been sacked twice! All I can get is a job at Gainsborough... I refuse to restart though.

    I wouldn't have thought so - it's just a shortened version of their name, if you click on them their full name comes up doesn't it?

    I looked everywhere for the name but couldn't find it so I had to google the initials followed by Portugal

    :(

    I wonder how much better they would make this if they could get all of those paying each year.

    You can download a file that updates all the team names / competitions. I don't know if theres a FM13 version yet but I acquired a FM12 the other day and it was save game compatible too and I found it here

    Trying out a game with PSV. Decent enough players but barely any money.

    Seems the case for many, if not most clubs unless you go for the obvious moneybags. I suppose that's where the challenge lies and feels quite realistic also, with clubs spending close to or above what they should be on player wages. I think there is the bar that can be adjusted (wages per week/transfer budget).

    Top of the league with Crystal Palace after 15 games. Now on a streak of 16 games without a win. I see morale still dictates 90% of the game. I'm not sure if I should change tactics because I dominate every game (shots on target and possesion). I've had two or three games where the opposition have scored to win it in injury time. FUCK

    I wish I could be like you. If that were me I would of rage quit after the 4th winless game.

    I would have if I was a team with high expectations. Luckly, my board expected me to finish near the bottom, so that keeps me going... for now.

    Another Eagle! Would you be kind and tell us what you did to get to with Palace? :)

    Zaha up front as lone striker has the pace to run past any defence in the championship, so built the team round him. I play 4-3-3, although it's basically 4-5-1. I recycled my tactics from last year. Short passing, alwasy press for the ball, drill crosses into the box, fluid playing style so wingers and Zaha have freedom to overlap etc. Works well since I have five midfielders. Also made my groundsman make my pitch as small as it can go so teams who play lots of long balls have trouble.

    Seemed to work for the first 15 or so games, and I guess it's still working since I dominate every game, but I can't buy a fucking win!

    I've not really played this since 2010 but tried the demo. I was utterly bored of it within 30 minutes, there is just too much to take in and consider now I think

    That's what classic mode is for. It's FM lite, but I find it enjoyable. Flying through the matches like old school CM.

    Thanks for that, sounds good although I am surprised that short passing worked in the Championship.
