    Football Manager 09 - sometimes i just dont get it

    was playing it last night as liverpool, man city offered me 56 mil for masch and cos of his minimum release fee it was accepted, so i quickly moved to find a replacement, offered roma 25 mil for aquilani, rejected, so i then inquired as to how much they wanted they then said 13 mil and tht was tht?? lol does this ever happen to anyone else

    Yep found that happened all the time before I used the last update. Always a good way of getting who you want though.

    the other thing tht annoys me is, its easy to get roma to accept an ofer for totti (my altime fav player) but he never wants to join the club:cry: always says he wants to finish his career at roma, how many of you would dcline 140k per week and a 10mil signing bonus lol

    try downloading FM scout, it tell you how much you need to bid for any player in the game to get it accepted, also it tells you how good a player will get. It runs alongside your live game and changes from each saved game depending on the path you choose. It's a must have!

    The scout kinda spoils the fun, the best feeling is signing a player as a 16 year for £2m and seeing him grow into a legendary player worth £30m. :thumbsup:

    Before the update i got Bojan and Owen for Man City for free along with Rossi for about 16M and they made the best strike threesome in the league.

    Tip if you don't know, if you are a team that has enough money, BUY VAGNER LOVE at the start of the game he is normally around 16M to buy but goes up to be a 30M striker scoring over 20 goals a season :thumbsup:

    Bought Caceres for boro for 9.5m or summit along them lines when barca offered him to me..

    Once sold Downing to Man City for 15M in the September then bought him back in January for free, best piece of business i've done lol.

    awesome i find tht if u wait a season, when the spanish clubs start dishin out new contracts some of the minimum release fees were ridiculously low picked up david silva 25 mil, messi 45 mil, pique 8.75 mil

    Funnily enough, I'm playing Football Manager 2009 at the moment. I'm Reading (not my favourite team) and have gotten them promoted, and now I'm trying to survive in the Premier League. When you start the game, the club are in the middle of expanding the stadium, which puts the finances in the crapper and you rapidly start to lose money. I kept within the wage and transfer budget, but the chairman kept accepting offers on my behalf for my best players. Thankfully the two best at the time (Kevin Doyle and Stephen Hunt) were injured and failed medicals, so their transfers were cancelled.

    I bought in a few players such as Insua on loan from Liverpool and a guy called Christian Benitez for £1.5mil from Santos Laguna, who was superb in the Championship. I also bought in a few youth players such as Gabriel Torje and Franco Zuculini who act as great back-ups (the scouts rave over the latter). I managed to win the league and thankfully the finances settled and are now beginning to climb. Despite this, the chairman is still looking to step aside and rumour has it I might get replaced by Steve Coppell (who got Crystal Palace relegated from the Championship in the same season I went up).

    Now after 7 games in the Premiership, I find myself 16th in the league. It's not great, but I have already played Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal. I sold a Doyle to Sunderland for £8mil and bought in Jozy Altidore and Morgan Schneiderlin, both of which are incredible young players. I also got Daniel Sturridge on a free as well as shoring up a few positions as I fight it out towards the end of the table.

    Yeah, I'm rambling.
