    No there isn't. You're reading SWP as two names.

    I usually play 4-2-2-2 with two central midfielders and two wingers (both wing-backs as well) at Citeh. I usually go with Jo and Robinho up front with Petrov and SWP as wingers, midfield usually rotates but generally contains 2 of the Johnson, Elano, Gelson and Kompany. My back four is usually always Garrido-Dunne-Richards-Zabaleta, though Onouha usually comes into consideration as Zabaleta goes through some rouch patches.

    This is all basic squad though. Haven't played 09 so I don't know the ins and outs but I'd suggest going after a good left back and a better right back. Zabaleta is generally poor in the FM games I've played, perhaps go after Rafinha from Hertha or something.

        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    Get rid of Castillo and add a new Left Back, bring Johnson in for Fernandes and add Dunne for Ben Haim imo

    Had no problems with activating my FM09

    Starting off jobless is a real challenge.. I'm playing 4-4-2 bog standard at the moment, and as I'm an absolute mug tactically would appreciate any advice.. Having a fairly good season, about Mid Table in a side that is so poor even I could play in it..

    Team lines up as:
    GK: Buffon
    DR: Richards
    DC: Dunne
    DC: Metzelder
    DL: Lahm
    MR: Elano
    ML: Joe Cole

    How much money did you have? Selling Ireland, Garrido, and Petrov to try and bring in Axel Witsel(l?), Mario Balotelli and Cristian Molinaro in return. I have signed Oscar Ustari from Getafe and I will look at Sergio Asenjo instead of Joe Hart. I might sell Elano, I don't know.

    595m pounds

    Gerrard cost me 118m, Ibrahimovic 88m, Buffon 57m, Cole 56m, others around 20-30m. Currently looking at getting wayne rooney in, he has accepted the contract etc... I can afford the 112m pound price tag, its just going to put me way over my wage bill.

    Im just not getting goals out of Robinho at the moment and Saviola isnt doing much as back up, Scott McDonald has come off the bench and scored a few but when Ibrahimovic is injured/suspended etc... we cant score goals.

    You spent that much in how many seasons? City's transfer budget must be huge!

    Top of the table after 3 games with Man City. Beat Liverpool 3-0 at home with Robinho who scored a goal by just standing in the box and with Riena off his line he just lobbed it back into net to put me 3-0 up. I'm also the vast majority of my players favoured personal or one of already.

    Found out something interesting yesterday. The quality of coaches only has to do with how many players they can coach. The key for player improvement is training facilities and matches played really. Mental stats only matter for the Ass Man. The stars for coaches determine how many they can coach. A 7 star coach can hadnle say 35 while a 3 star can handle 15. So theoretically you could have 16 crap coaches putting two each on a training category to keep the workload light and the players will progress the same as if you had 8 high quality expensive coaches.

    Those links are to the Tactics Bible for FM09. Explains the basics of FM09 tactics and is endorsed by the head of match engine design at SI. Best thing out there to improve your tactics. I thought I was decent at tactics but then I read that.....

    From the little ive read on some forums it seems some people say this game is harder than the previous versions. I kind of agree but disagree in another way. I find I win about the same etc... the major difference is that very few games are won easily. On FM08 when you had a gun team it was easier to beat the lower teams 4-0 or 5-0, these games are now 1-0 or 2-1. Ive probably played around 100-130 matches now and have won probably less than 20 games by more than 1 goal.
