ok. Let's have a little chat about this.

Someone made the comment, that aside from Paul's skysports commentary every 2 weeks, the forum and the transfer market have died a death.

So, open discussion...

what do we need to do to get a bit of life back in the game?

The game itself is arguably as good as it's ever been. But things between us have gone a bit stale.

You go out drinking with your friends, you never talk to me any more. When you do talk to me its usually to whine, and you never listen.

You rarely take the bins out and I cant remember the last time you took the dog for a walk let alone you grabbed your keyboard and made me feel the way you used to make me feel. What's happened?, is there someone else?. Another football manager game?, that's it isnt it....

So, dear CF manager...it's about time you decided where your head is.

I didnt realise you felt that way Rich....

But for me its not that im playing any other football manager game, its just i have nothing to particularly say!

Im very content with my team, and all Transfers are done via PM. Very rarely does a player get publicly sold there has been a few put up for sale on the forum recently.

Tactics arnt talked about... Even though i am going to swap to FAS.

GK LB CB CB RB BW DL DR TM ST S2

This week, to see if its abit more steady home/away. as FLY is too far open when away.

I never take the bins out, i dont have a dog, im always at a keyboard unless at work! and well the feather duster has been broken so i cant make u feel the way i used to..........

You wanna hurt me? Go right ahead if it makes you feel any better. I'm an easy target. Yeah, you're right. I drink too much. I also listen too much. I could be a cold-hearted cynic like you, but I don't like to hurt people's feelings. Well, you think what you want about me. I'm not changing. I like me. My wife likes me. My customers like me. 'Cause I'm the real article. What you see is what you get.

on a side note.

nice tactical switch phil - thatll sure things up i recko - toying with a similar sort of switch but i dont like dropping valencia or Robben - but until i do im always going to be wide open.

like Richs use of the SEXY tactic this week.

can anyone remember what the tactic was that lined up with no out and out forward and was something like

LW TM RW was it the Barca one?

i think id prefer FAS - i think.

iv had really mixed results when playing with two AM

would love a tactic that plays the ever increasingly popular

4-2-3-1

flat back four

AL AR LH TM RH CF possibly ? or would it be AL AR LH DY RH CF ??

not sure if theres a tactic that incorporates those postions effectively.

I remember that paul was saying something a while back about SLO being able to be played with AL AR.

So maybe you could try that with the second combo as u wouldnt be able to play a TM.

Well i have enjoyed playing FLY and i was doing really well. But alot of draws and late goals are making me think of a tactical change.

I shall see how FAS see's the season out though 5 games left 15points? please Smile

Back onto topic, regarding the forum, I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on how we can make things more active on here.

Any suggestions for the 'portal' page? What would people like to see on there?

The ticker along the top made a brief appearance but nobody seemed to be bothered about it. Thoughts? Useful or not? Any ideas what could be running along there? Would you rather it wasn't there?

i think transfers is only a little bit of the problem. Mark is obviously struggling to get on, and Stu has gone walkabout. Ideally, we could do with a couple of new managers on here. It would spark it into life again.

Jamie@Shalke, Iain, and Matt are rarely around, and to be honest, I've found myself posting less and less. but that's just life pressures that will ease.

I have absolutey zero opinion on the ticker Tom, i didnt even know what it did...

I like the tactics discussion that kicked off, and could well be more and more appropriate the more we comes to terms with the bigger pitch

Nice to see things sparking into life again on here lads.

21st seems ok at first glance - Rob will let you know nearer the time.

I liked the ticker tbh (added to the excitement of the week).

I agree we need some new managers but its tough to find them unless anyone knows of anyone who would like to join?

On another point is there a way Paul of some of the Game 2 managers being incentivised to take out another team in Game 1 (or is it pretty settled)?

And additionally do you have a database of old managers who you could potentially contact to see if they would like to come back to play? - Happy to chip in and write something or help pay for the postage if you were to do a mail out to them?
