    I'll admit to getting rather excited about FM2007's imminent release. I've looked at all the possibilities, weighed up the pros and cons, and my new team will be...

    Scarborough FC :)

    Plying their trade in the lowest playable division in England, with barely enough players to form a squad, a crummy ground, no money, minimal support and, best of all, they'll be starting the season with a 10-point deduction for a breach of league rules. Plus of course, they have to deal with living in the shadow of the mighty Hull City who are just down the coast.

    I'm a firm believer that the best way to play this game is to make it as difficult as for yourself as possible. Start out right at the very bottom, and fight your way to the top. I like a challenge. ;)

    Football Manager in all its incarnations so far (2) have been extremely unstable on my mac. 2006 was so bad I stopped playing it altogether. Even with all the patches it still randomly crashed all the time.

    I REALLY hope this one is going to be much more stable. If not I wont be buying it again. :mad:

    Just for pure bragging rights - I designed the Football Manager logo :D

    Take a look see at my portfolio http://www.stuartluff.co.uk

    That's a good point. Maybe I'll play as Cheadle Town for a change.

    Or do you think Stockport is difficult enough? :D

    I can't believe you've not mentioned that before. :D ;)

    By the way, mcmadhatter – have you picked yourself a team out yet, and if so who?

    You're at least guaranteed six points from playing Grimsby, so I suppose that'll make League Two life a little easier. :D

    The Mighty Mariners. I think the last time my County met them we won 2 - 0. BTW, does anyone else get really into the game and cheer when their team scores, or is that just me? :eek: :D

    Stockport will be well easy with our super Loanee Glenn Murray on the case. Promotion it is.

    Edit - Yup, cheer, just around the room, do my own commentry... The usual...

    I do. Actually, it's more of a clenched fist and a snarled 'yes!' whenever one of my young stars finds the back of the net.

    Miss Jaffa Cake just sits there on the settee and giggles. :D

    THREAD HIJACK ALERT!!!

    Real World

    I won't be happy the day you take Murray back. He's developed a fantastic upfront partnership with our own striker Adam Le Fondre and I've got a nasty feeling Alfy will need some adjustment time when Glenn heads off back to Cumbria. Do you think you can hold it together and keep in the playoff spots?

    Okay, back to talking about "virtual" footie :)

    Yeah, the Hijacking would be my fault... but I see he didn't even get into the squad on Tuesday, shame. Any reason why? As for promotion, we've been going like a steam train since we got relegated and we don't like stopping any time soon, we played reallllllllly bad on Tuesday against Blackpool and still won and scored twice, which are the kind of results you need when chasing promotion. We'll see I guess.

    ... But yeah, Football Manager...

    Minor ankle injury I heard. He should be fit for Saturday's game though.

    That is, if he doesn't get "the call" tomorrow :eek:

    Well, Bridges has scored a goal which is more than most of our team (The Beast excepted) can claim. He's doing alright for us, and I'm delighted he's joined us – he's just not getting the service at the moment, but don't get me started on that one. :eek:

    Its a toss up between FC Hacken (in Sweden) , or Bristol City, FC Hacken are a challenge as they are only semi pro so you can't buy any good players :)

    Not so bad I guess. Call could come, we're in a catch 22 at the moment up here, have a serious lack of strikers since Bridges got stolen from us :p and we have a youth team player on the bench, but as you say, Murray is doing well and I know te gaffer don't really want to bring him back atm. I think he should be ok long as we don't pick up any up front related injuries.

    I hear it was a hell of a goal as well Jaffa, still rooted to the bottom tho. I know what thats like, hope the rest of the season goes better.

    The semi-pro thing is a biggie. I'm playing as Harrogate Town in my FM2006 save at the moment, and although things were going reasonably well for me it really took off when my players went full-time. Obviously I was able to attract in a better quality of player, and it was surprising how well the players I had improved when they started training each day.

    The trials and tribulations of lower-league management, eh? :p

    Thanks – hopefully things will pick up. Still, Taylor's coming back with Palace on Saturday, and I've got a horrible feeling we're going to lose the game thanks to a Leon Cort header... :eek:

    Lower league management is the way forward, maeks the game so much more fun, premiership is a bit pointless and easy , especially after a season or two. Taking No hope clubs like Hereford United to the champions league final, now there is fun.
