  1. Yeah that's true enough. Most of the things people complain about I've never experienced!
  2. feedback on the SI forums is that it is even worse. Some guy reports being 20 games in a no striker anywhere in the world has reached 10 goals!
  3. I'm not sure who is smiling the most here, Ashton or the Dolphin! Looks brilliant mate, the dolphin experience is great - we did it in Cuba some years ago. I guess the slow progress must be frustrating, but it is progress, and he has come a very long way in these past couple of years
  4. Was really tempted to cave in last night. Had the voice of @Countryfox in my head - the devil on my shoulder! The kids had been doing my head in all day and whilst they were having tea I had a few hours before the missus got home - this is classic time to sink a few beers, especially on a Saturday night. BUT I managed to resist and this morning I am glad I did! It is the missus birthday in the week and we're going to go out so I might treat myself to a couple of drinks that night Maybe.
  5. Yeah I had never purchased an alcohol free beer (apart from an embarrassing incident in Olivers nightclub in Stamford in 1990 when I was drinking Barbican lager because I thought it was a trendy new bottled beer!). But.... during my attempt to cut down on drinking this month, the alcohol free lager has been a help - maybe some kind of placebo effect. I only have the odd one or two but it sort of "feels" like I'm having a beer. It looks like a beer, it tastes like a beer (more or less). It's not perfect but I'd sooner drink that than a pint of cola or Fanta!
  6. "Super computer"! They're probably just running Football Manager on "holiday" mode!
  7. I started a game with the original 01/02 database. First game at the new Walkers Stadium a 1-0 defeat to Millwall, goal scored by Steve Claridge, Junior Lewis sent off....
  8. I really like the new Club vision and Development Centre stuff, but the one on ones thing is doing my head in. Time and again, Vardy runs through with only the keeper to beat, and yet either misses or hits it straight at the keeper. Same for opponents - Aguero, Salah, Rashford. Doesn't matter. One on one? No sweat, 19 times out of 20 they won't score. Might have to go back to an older version I think..
  9. sort of. There's a few hoops to jump through. Took me a bit of time to get set up but it's all there on the website that Smuts mentioned. Step by step instructions. If I can manage it, it can't be too difficult!
  10. So Bluenoses will have the unusual experience of being away fans in their own stadium. Some Blues fans making quips about "where are the decent away pubs at St Andrews" and "can we sing Birmingham's a shithole, I wanna go home"
  11. I stayed at a pub in Chesterfield a couple of years ago for work. Arrived on the Sunday afternoon and went for a drink. It all kicked off with this woman scrapping. She got thrown out and arrested and then her kids - one a baby and the other a toddler had to be looked after by the bar staff until social services arrived. Classy!
  12. I saw a guy get in his car in Aldi on Sunday morning just after they'd opened. He opened a big 2litre bottle of cider and glugged about 1/3 of the bottle down before driving off!
  13. Ah yes, the halcyon days of Saint and Greavsie, Grandstand, League Ladders in Shoot! and one live game a week on TV (if you were lucky), Elton Welsby, pitches which looked like a farmers field, The Dell, Roker Park and Ayesome Park Panini Stickers, "proper" floodlight pylons which were your navigation aid to finding your way to any football ground, Midweek Sports Special and Sportsnight, covering your exercise books with the team pull outs from Match!
  14. Yeah, clubs were a lot more amateurish with kit and equipment. I can recall a game between Spurs and Coventry City in (checks up online) December 1986 when Coventry turned up in an all pale blue shirt which the ref determined clashed with Tottenham's white kit. Spurs didn't have their away kit to hand so had to wear Coventry's yellow away kit at home!
  15. Yeah, seems like a good move. For most people, if you're having to borrow money on a credit card to gamble then that's almost certainly a bad thing...
