Btw...for anyone looking for a DM, Pirlo has had few games under a 7 match rating for me. I know he's not young, but he's great at free kicks and corners (he does both for me), PKs (he's a 20), and he leads my team in man of the match awards.
Pirlo is good, but if you want younger, Miguel Veloso can be had at the start of the game for 12.25 million. I signed Ignacio Camacho fro Atletico Madrid for 12.9 million for Barca only because I wanted a Spanish team

Re: ***The Official Football Manager Thread***

Well, I'm in my second season with Fulham (I guess I should say Ray Hudson -- from GolTV -- is in his second season with Fulham). Either way, I came in 15th in the first season, which I was content with, as my ambition was to avoid relegation. I was something like 10 points out of the drop-zone, so I was playing fairly well, including a late season 2-1 away victory over Chelsea that pretty much secured my spot in the league and put a lid on Chelsea's league title ambitions . I didn't really have any major transactions during the season: I picked up Lee McCulluch on a loan-to-buy over the summer (he managed to bag 11 goals in all competitions, which was pretty nice considering he played half of the games at LM); Robert Lewandowski and Claudio Hussein (a CM/DM from Brazil who is quite good and acted as cover when Adranik went down for 2 months) joined the Cottagers during the January window; I also grabbed Dudu Aouate because Schwarzer is terrible, single handedly costing me 2 games in the Prem.

As for the second season, I just finished my first game, a 4-0 thrashing of Blackburn. Samba scored an OG and was sent off in the 38th minute, so I knew things would go my way. Over the summer, I brought in Juan Angel Albin on a loan because I desperately needed a winger who could take my set-pieces and whip in some nice balls from the wing (it worked out pretty well, as he already has 2 assists -- one on a corner and one on a nice cross to Lewandowski). I also managed to snag Ariza Makuluka from Benfica for only 1.6m who will primarily play in midweek games or act as backup for McCulluch, Lewandowksi, and Andy Johnson. Simon Davies went packing to West Ham for 6.5m (a steal by my standards).

Anything else you need to know, I'd be more than happy to share (screenshots, game results, etc.)

I forgot to add in my other post that I just signed Jozy Altidore for 9.75m (maybe a little much, but my scouts touted him as basically the best thing since sliced bread). He is the next "Brian McBride" it says, so maybe he can lead Fulham to success (whatever that may mean)...

Are you kidding me? I offered 47 Mil for Veloso and got turned down (this in year 2). Wow. I guess I'm getting highballed.

You could just download steam and get a digital copy of the game. That's what I did and it's great
