How many seasons did you play in Player Manager? I've played 96 seasons in this all-time favourite game. My oldest Player (R.Ellis; 98 years) is still in the squad.
He usually plays 1-2 times a season..(Just 1-2 minutes)...His physical abilities are between 1-9 points <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_wink.gif">
But his technical abilities are over 190 in evry discipline...(Keeping: 183)...
"He's the man of wit" in the team...; the assistens coach <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_wink.gif">
Ok...I just wanted to share some of my experiences with PM...
I hope you can post some funny stuff too...

I usually play 7-10 seasons (2 years from 3rd to 1st division and 8 years in the 1st) trying to get all the possible trophies. I don't remember any special record, but I do pretty well.
ps. I always hang up boots immediately and use the result only option.

Now thats dedication (sounds of roy castles trumpet), I thought I was bad playing to year 2020.

I went through a season winning every game, I never managed a whole season without conceding a goal, anyone manage that?

THere was also a bug, around 2040 ish! where if you brought on a sub during a cup match. and it went to penalties, then the subbed player wouldn`t take the penalty, and well, reload <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_frown.gif">

Nah, I heard he's too snobbish, he won't help you. <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif">
I went as far as 2036, IIRC. Then I did a horrible mistake: I deleted a tactic from my save disk without retraining the team first! I was never able to play another match, as the game kept asking for that tactic. I had no back up. <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_frown.gif">
I've always played as Player Manager. I was 76 years old and I had never missed a minute! Thanks to a tactic I had designed, all I had to do was guard the corner flag. So basically I was playing with only 10 players.
I managed several 126+ goals seasons(more than 7 goals of average), but never a clean sheet. I NEVER reloaded after a bad result (meaning a mere 3-1 victory, of course; I always won), only if my main player was injured or sent off.

Dang...my Amiga is unable to save since 1994... something's wrong with the fdd. That's why I play 10 years in a row and then quit.
Post Guarding is a nice tactic. The ai is used to creating most of the opportunities from the wings, with crosses. Alkis thinks right!
