Always play in position, always use result only, always watch cup matches. <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif">

YEP! Thats acyually another bad thing about PM. That your financial situation is so incredible dependent on the cup.

You can win the league and almost not get any money at all and you can win the cup and you will earn more than 1000 K totally.

No I did get the point, it's just that I love Kick Off so much I can't stand having someone else control my little players!

Plug Alert...Plug alert

For all of you who liked Play in position you will surely love Gary Linekers...oops I mean Mark Durbans Superstar Soccer...

Its a remake of the classic c64 game Gary Linekers superstar soccer, it isn't anything special but it can be quite fun, and you basically play as the midfielder and its more arcadey than realistic.

Anyway an early version should be ready in the next couple of weeks, might keep you at least busy for 5-10 mins in the run up to UPM <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif">

M

end of plug...apologies for any annoyingness caused by the above blatent advertisment.

PLAY AS TEAM I think it's better. I won the Cup with my Division 3 team : I played all all Cup matches and I won them <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif">

You can also do this as PIP if you select a player with a good engine and all round skills. Playing as the spare man you can defend, prompt from the back, find the space to recieve the pass and get on the end of things like the star player that you are. <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif">

Play in position was the only way I ever played PM, and on quite a few occasions I got out of the 3rd division on the first attempt.

For me the only way to play PM is in position.

It's the MAJOR interest of the game.

So it's very strange that this system was never copied by another football game, is this system protected by a CR ?

It would be fun to be first a youth player in a little club, then if you play well, some bigger teams are interested by you, and your career continues in another club etc... and after you are player-manager and after only manager... and after you die ! But your son play in another team... etc... etc...
