Oops I meant 'Nice', not 'nic'. lol @ trying to bring Sir Les back. I'm not sure about FM2006, there's too much training and too many flowery options that I just can't be arsed with. I've still got CM '97 somewhere, I might install that again - there must be some geeks somewhere who still write updates for the old versions.

Yeah I can't be arsed with the training either but there's a good option on it where you can choose autoassign and your assistant does all the training for you. I've got Sammy Lee doing all the hard work for me. You should get FM06 Mozzer, it's really fucking good. Not as fiddly as you would think. I have a 'copy' of it on my HD that I downloaded, dunno how I would send it to you though as it is a huge file.

Yeah I've got FM06, I'm in play-off position with Bradford City halfway through my first season. I just miss the old school '97/98 days of taking Ross County to Europe, via 3 promotions.

Search for a Swedish forward called Marcus Berg. You can get him for about £50k and he scores a shit load of goals. He's worth about £6m on mine now and he's still only on about £300 per week! I'll post some other top bargain tips when I get home and can remember.

I signed a Korean national named Park Soo-Young, and he scored about 30 for me in the Championship League. Transfer was a cool 2mil.

Hey will these guys show up if I don't select their leagues when I start my game? Young is there because I selected the korean players at the beginning but Berg isn't.

Yeah he should still be there. When you start a new game it gives you an option of what size database to play with. I always choose large so there are more players in the game. I usually choose to play with English leagues including the conference, Italian Serie A & B, Spanish Primera league and Scottish Premier. It all depends on the speed of your PC which you should choose.

i'm currently in manager mode, you know the one. Don't answer the phone, its a pain in the arse washing etc. I'm up to 2012, most players have retired and the new players are shit. Should give it up. Maybe just one more game 1st........

I'm managing Fulham....Malbranque and Bouba Diop both want to move right away, and Boa Morte wants to move in december, WTF? Three of my four best players. I'm third in the premiership though! Park Joo-Young isn't playing that well for me. I have a brazilian guy named Roger who's leading my team in goals.

Martin Petrov is class but might cost you a bit. DO a search in January for players who's contracts are expiring and try and get them for free by offering them a contract. I got Hargreaves and Torres for nothing by doing this.

Park lit it up for me. About 50 goals in two seasons. Are ya playing him as a striker? Makinwa, the Nigerian guy, scored 33 in 33 games for me using the 4-3-3 formation, injured alot though. I either lost the games 4-1 or I would win 5-4. Horrible defence.

Yeah....Radzinski is my starting striker now. I play 4-2-3-1. Radzinski has scored for me plenty, a couple of hat tricks. I set him as my target man and checked "run to ball" under target man supply. I think I'm gonna change my formation to two strikers though.

I just started a new season now. Was getting sick of my WestHam team. Now I'm the wolves, and things are looking pretty good. Already getting withdrawal symptoms for my WestHam game though. I put a lot of work into those frustrating bastards. Highest I finished was 4th, won the Fa Cup and went to the Uefa cup final until I was destroyed 4-1 by Deportive. Anthony Vanden Borre is a really good defence. Only prob is that he is highly ambitious, and after one season, all the big teams will try to sign him, and he'll be a whiny little cunt if ya don't let him leave.

My Fulham finished 3rd in the premiership. But I replayed a few matches when I lost, more than a few actually. But my under 18 squad is fucking dynamite. They won their group by like 15 points! I have David N'gog and Nik Besagno on there. I was also about 150k over my wage budget the whole season. Even with the cash prize for coming in 3rd I lost about 2 million this season. But it says the board is "satisfied" with the current financial status....gonna have to cut some people this coming season.

My current Wolves squad is now in first in the championship, but only 20 or so games into the first year. If I make it to the premiership, my untalented squad will need a crazy overhaul though.

Yougottawanna, now that you have got into it you have to get 2007. I downloaded it yesterday but haven't installed it yet.

Only just started in 2007 but it has a few more good options. When you start a new game you can choose to start unemployed or with any club. Plus you can choose what level of player you were, from sunday league to International. Obviously the higher you choose the more respect you have from the players.
