    Reading in the press today that the new football manager will factor in the Brexit vote, according to the press we are not likely to activate clause 50 until March leaving Europe in 2019 at the earliest. Are they trying to cover all aspects and if so will Sam Allardyce be appointed and get sacked in the new game as the new England Manager

    Good point about Allardyce I reckon they will start with Southgate in charge I do hope they have DC's ratings a lot higher though.

    They normally wait until November to see who the inform sides are and out of form clubs as they factor that in on teams expectations etc. So they will probably have us a mid table finish than a relegation dogfight.

    I seen that they have set up a formula to factor in Brexit. Thats good. I wonder how it will work then as the government dont seem to know yet what will happen. I bet the government is waiting to see what FM do in the game to see if they can get hints on how to do it in the real world! <laugh>

    As for the England job, Southgate will be in charge. It would be a simple change for the makers. Any late changes in the lower leagues may not get fixed but late major changes will get sorted before its released. The England job will get updated before released <ok>

    You can buy the game and get a disc to install or you can get it online and download it. The downloaded version will be more up to date as they can up date the game right until the release date. However buying it from a shop and having to install the disc probably at a guess will need to be finalised by now as they need to make them all and ship them them out to all the shops that will sale and they need to get their by the release date.

    I usually buy the disc because its straight forward installation. Buying online and downloading is a gamble because where its so busy where many are downloading at the same time, servers run slow and people were complaining that its taken over 24 hours to download and still not finished downloading. That would do my head in.

    Do you know anything about the editor so you can edit info yourself? I got this and set up UWE stadium to be built by 2016. How wrong was I <laugh>

    Don't know anything about editing if I did I would get a more realistic number of season tickets sold.
    The date I put in the above entry was supplied by GAME so I hope it's accurate though I usually find it cheaper to buy in the Supermarket's

    Do you have a steam account? If so then you can download for free the editor package. It lets you go into any player and change anything like skin colour, height, weight, age, place of birth, nationality, team they play for, wages, agents and anything else available. You can go into any club and change anything like wage budget, if you want the owner to be a sugar daddy or not, season ticket details, capacity, stadium, sponsor, kit colour. You could even change club names, stadium names, build new stadiums, move clubs into diffferent league.

    Some would abuse the editor and give yourself the best players on long contracts and give yourselvve tons of money. Some people use it to do real updates after transfers have happened in real life.

    Thats because the game makers put that figure down as the max number of season ticket holders. In the editor you can change that figure <ok>

    I changed the figure to 8k season ticket holders max and set up the UWE stadium with a capacity of 32k with a max 20k seaston ticket holders. I put the stadium move date after 1 season. All the extra revenue from season ticket sales helps with funding and passing the FFP rules. I know its cheating in a way but I know I had to do it because if I didnt, then I would be in the top leagues with a silly low number of season ticket holders.

    I thought Barrow Gurney shut down years ago <laugh><whistle>

    Only joking <ok>

    Lets us know how good it is. Is the players up to date and our finances etc or do they still have Higgs in charge and we are broke???? Im still in an old game doing well so im carrying on where I am for now <ok>

    According to something I read about FM they said that anybody can send in information about Managers staff and players. They apologised to Harry Kane because his figures were so low on the current game and said they would study the information provided more closely
