    I have to admit to managing Perth Glory in my current FM game (chosen for small league = quick game)

    Not got many of their players any more though, sold them as they're rubbish!

    Petkovic is now my reserve keeper (occasional starter owing to stupid non-Australian rules in Asian competitions)
    Harnwell is my skipper.

    Colosimo is still there, played him at sweeper first year, but now in the holding midfield role.

    My wingers are still orignal, but can't remember their names!

    Not doing too bad - second season I won both League competitions and am into the quarter finals of the Asian Cup, just very hard to buy good Australians (I guess that mirrors real life though!)

    Is it really hard to lure over international players, a la real life too?

    Buy Brazilians if you can, they will play almost anywhere it seems.

    Think John O'Neill's sentence here is the crucial one tho:

    "Our ability to top up is a bit constrained, but we're willing to top up payments with some modest amounts"

    Sure is - I don't think I've signed any current Internationals except for Jeyson Joel Vega (who was only a Paraguay player because my database is small)

    That's as maybe but they also fail the Australian criteria (imposed by the Asian cup thingy)

    Started in the Australian leagues on CM 2001/2 having half assedly updated it. Can't alter the amount of teams in the competition so it's stuck with 14, but made those not in the A League semi-pro teams to help create a divide.
    Started with Melbourne Victory and am so far 4th with 3-2-2. This program called CMAgent helps with finding some good, cheap Australians that therefore don't count as foreigners.
