an expert turn costs more, so surely these should be sent out and done as a priority as people who have these pay more...

i'll keep together the same team that almost won the league martin, then, how can it go from almost to relegated in 1 season, it will show that the game can just be fixed if it does happen.....

We should all just club together and manage Man City. Then we'd always win.

I've had a 'mare of a turn like Will.

1 swapbid for Watford and 2 for Ancona not gone through as 'recent signing... doesn't want to leave club'

Tried to bring Salcido over to Watford from Ancona but apparently he still hasnt played in Britain yet!

2 players that were coming into Ancona for 1 player going out didnt work - the player left the club for a fee, yet the 2 players coming in for the equivalent fee didnt join as 'as a feeder club you cannot affored...' How can I compete in serie A if I cant sign players? I think one is only currently a 92 90!!!

Reviews a waste of time too! 1 ignored, other 2 were a waste of time - Paul clearly couldnt be arsed to do them properly!

Seriously thinking if I can be arsed filling my turn sheets in if its gonna be a waste of time again as Paul moves the goal posts without telling us!

The only bright point was Watford beat Tom's Charlton 3-0 in Europe and that took playing against 8 men and lost 2 players to 3 match injuries!

Ah didn't think of doing that. What am going to do in future is send it normally and email him a copy so least he has a copy in his inbox - plus will ring to check.

Ben I wouldn't rely on emails too much if I were you. They tend to get ignored/lost, etc. Paul is old school and likes things in hard copy.

I always thought that you could only do one review a turn? Maybe I'm wrong, I would think reviews would be quite time consuming too so this would make sense.

BTW, how come my reputation is now -10? Have I upset someone?

this turn im literally filling in dealing spots with 'safety' dealings until things get sorted out.

listing players, enroles the stragglers, anything that involves interaction with other clubs,that way i cant be disappointed. i might build that casino ive had my eye on.

Ive not heard the 1 review a week ruling before, I've been able to do more than 1 in the past.

I'm not going to waste my time doing more than 1 in the future though!

3 sendings off? WTF???

How is that possible with 6 aggression???

Now I'm really fucked off!

Sorry Jamie, by the way, it wasn't intentional. Like I said I had 6 aggression, nothing out the ordinary. I didn't go out to purposely nail your players.

Big red button?

It's out 5th November I think - demo comes out Thursday. I do enjoy this game a lot though just wish I think it was slightly quicker moving and possibly with an online element as well where you can log in do your turn etc.

Still no turn here today.
As mentioned by someone earlier in this thread, Im assuming he's sending more turns out today on his trip to the post office.
So there's a chance some wont be hear until thursday. So much for being back to a 2 week turnaround.
By the sounds of Will, Jamie and Tom's experiences this week I'm not sure I even want the turn back !

How many people are paying £100-150 a year for Paul to insult them with this so called product?

Always worth asking. Can someone call him and ask if he only posted the rest of the turns today please? I'm stuck in meetings.

6 is actually pretty high aggression from what I've picked up. I think about 4 is the norm. 5 slightly above average. Mark@Newcastle played 6 aggression against me this week and got two players sent off (and one injured). I too played 6 aggression this week and picked up a couple of bookings. Much depends on the players you have too - if you have a Batty/Barton-like player they'll get bookings and more with a higher aggression such as 6. If you are playing players like this and don't want to get sendings off you'll have to drop your aggression.

Mark I'll send you a PM/separate post but I acknowledge I got pretty lucky against you this week. I'm still reading the match report though.

Is he going to extend the deadline then for some people then or will he accept turns by email - having 1 day to get things filled in prob isn't the most ideal? I am not affected myself but its a shame to see ppl being made to suffer esp in a close community such as this!

I think if you get your turn late, like really late. Phone the orders through to him on a monday, to give you the weekend to put it together. I did this once last turn for Dunc@Sunderland, and it was very quick.

I know Jamies done it before too.

Having read the past few pages on this thread, it appears not everything is as rosy in the garden of Hemsoft as Rich tries to make out to me everytime we meet up for a beer or football. It appears you have been blatantly deceiving me for the past few months in an attempt to get me to join up again!!! I thought you said it was currently better than ever? Less problems? Its not the first time I've read this type of thread. Although I've never seen language so bad, and surely no need for the personal insults Martin? That's going way too far, IMO.

Its clear that the same inaccuracies , frustrations, perceived lack of professionalism from the man in charge, the lack of communication, the poor timekeeping, missing turns, a questioning of the product, value for money etc is still a large issue with many managers on here. So some things don't change, as they were quoted and mentioned regularly when I was in the game pre South America Trip.

I hope for all your sake that the numerous problems get sorted and quick, it appears it needs to happen to keep the game going. I've never heard so many people state that they are considering not bothering anymore and quitting. Can Paul afford for many more to leave this game?

Right, I'll get back to providing youtube clips, and commenting on Liverpool's current woe's in the Premiership.

Kind Regards,

Dan 'Quitter Boy Quitter' Rigby
