Aye FMT is much quicker like, definitely worth a try if you can’t be arsed with the full fat version.It's really slow imo. I like to have a few countries in (England, Scotland, Italy and Spain at present) with small database but fuck me, it keeps going to the home page every day, sometimes a few times a day (if there aren't any messages I have to respond to I'd much rather it just kept going) and it seems to take about ten minutes between matches (it's probably 3 or 4 but feels like ages).
I tried being Sunderland, got sacked in my first season as, realistically enough, none of my fucking strikers could score a goal! A couple of things irritated me. Firstly, my finances were fucked, there was a fair bit in the bank but we were just losing money every week. I clicked the finances option and in income there weren't any solidarity payments, is that not where they should have been putting our last parachute payments (which I believe are paid monthly)?
Then, when I was sacked I had a really good relationship with the players, but when I applied for a new job I had an interview question saying they were worried about the bad relationship I had with the players at the last club.
What is the touch version like, is it a lot quicker? I can happily lose daft things like team talks. I remember the good old days of CM 0102 and the likes. Me and a mate would have a team each, do all the transfers and stuff, and after about 5 hours of playing we'd have finished a season. When I come in knackered from work I can't really be arsed sitting for 4 evenings only to be in March and get sacked, seems a waste!
I’ve started a new save with Sunderland just to get me started on this years before moving on to something else. Top of the table after 10 games - sold Grigg to get his wages off the bill, but couldn’t shift the likes of Leadbitter, Watmore or McGeady whose wages are ridiculous for this level.
Terminated De Bock and McNulty’s loans and brought in six loans from Premier League clubs including Rhian Brewster and Aaron Connolly who are far too good for this level.
