I've been playing these games for years and recently talking to one of my mates at new year he was telling me all about the new stuff in FM09 and how much it had changed since the good old days of Championship Manager 2 from the mid 90's. I have some brilliantly embarrassing stories and I'm sure you all do to so come on lets talk about the old times and the new.

I've been waiting for this thread since about 4 minutes ago when we mentioned it.

Anyone got tactics for FM09? I can't win

Does this mean you'll be starting the Jenny Thread?

Championship Manager 2 ftw!

Seriously though, I'm about to start a new game on 09, not sure who to be.

Neither do I. I'm thinking about Blackburn and Sunderland - they don't have managers on this, due to Ince and Keano leaving.
But I do like the lower league teams.

BUT I need to win. And I have no good tactics.

Conundrum of the highest order.

On Football manager 08, i sussed that the formation to win everything was to play

4-1-1-2-2. Worked like a charm. But it doesn't seem to work on this one, so I'm out of ideas.

Got FM08 last year and was bored within two weeks. I am all for expansion but there was just too much to take care of in the game and it made it a lot less fun to be a part of.

I still play CM 01/02 regulary though.

It's not just the formation, it's the tactics as well, isn't it?

I hate it.

I've got FM06, couldn't get into it. CM01 was a different matter though, I was addicted to that game. I recall playing as Chelsea to winning everything until my top goalscorer (Ebbe Sand, a bargain in that game) went mental in the Champions League final. Seriously, he pushed refs, started a fistfight, received a twelve month ban. Good times.

I won the Champions League as Real Madrid, and then got given the Republic of Ireland job (no idea why...) and ended up trashing my reputation in about half the time it took me to build it

I know yeah. But I took the ROI job cos I'd done it all at Real, and England were doing ok back in the heady early-Sven days. I wasn't cut out for international management though.

Although on 96/97, I won the World Cup with England, beating Italy on Penalties in the final. That was a really good day.

Gonna start a new game on 08 now. Dunno whether to do a game with my beloved lower league Bristol Rovers and struggle, or pick a Prem side and try and win something.

I love when me and my friends use manager speak while discussing this game

I just want some good tactics for 09... and I cannot be arsed to roam the internet for them. Someone do it for me, I'll give them a sandwich.

I've just done my 8th title in a row with Celtic, Greece and Czech Rep keep offering me the managerial position I'm waiting on Argentina or Brazil to come knocking. Spain at a push.

I always find myself thinking like a real manager, when talking about the game When i talk to the press on the modern games I'm always doing a really imaginitive interview in my head

I imagine it in a Scottish accent most the time, regardless of whether my manager's from there or Zimbabwe.

Erm... bacon? Well done?
And with the smell intact?

Did you ever think that Sven's period as manager was an allegory for Tony Blair? Think about it. [smokes pipe]

True, he's avoided Sven/Blair's mistakes so far.

McClaren and Saddam I presume, is the next comparison.

I went England once and I fucked them up on purpose that was a good job  I still had it longer than Steve McClaren.

I'd do that with Scotland. But I don't need to.
