Can you manage more than one team at a time? Liked this option years back. Meant you could make an almighty West Ham team and try to build up a team like the Os or Barnet too.
Only an international team I think mate.

I play it on Xbox. Decent game, same match engine as on PC but much stripped down off the pitch.

Can be a bit easy once you get the hang of things and has the problems you see on this thread but still very playable

Started a new save after the winter update with Bristol City. Won the championship in our first season and come 8th in the prem the season after.

Having been building the squad from the start with young prospects things are starting to look good for us, currently sitting 4th in the EPL and should be good for some European football next season.

Alex Scott is amazing and also Valentin Carboni from Inter is an absolute goal machine if played up front.

Started a career on FM24 today, with Chesterfield.

Really good so far, first one I've played in years.

Im thinking of getting the new one having not bought it for a couple of years. It sucks me in to much. You blink and you’ve spent 4 hours playing it and it’s 3am. Its either play football manager or be a better father.

I'm either really good, or this game is too easy?

That is what I found out yesterday.

I find it a bit tricky to navigate, guess it'll become more easy with time.

Miss the propoer name/proper crest on the mobile. A bit too gamey with the vanilla.

Chaps, is FM24 worth it over FM23? Got a week free in December and mulling over upgrading to 24.

Has there ever been a version of FM that is worth a penny before the final update after the summer?

I'm loving it mate.

My wife has left me, taken the kid and the dog, I'm living in the garden with my laptop and extension lead, so all is good in the world!

I have played football manager games since Kevin Toms(?) game and am completely useless at them. I am very jealous of all of you who have won every trophy with the Dog and Duck second 11. I once had a Sheff Wed save where i had won the league, was progressing in Europe and domestic cups and as i saved my game experienced a power cut and my game was wiped out! (always back up TWICE!). Currently playing FM2022 after a very long lay off, beat Spurs and Chelsea 5-0 in the league and we are in the Carabo cup final. I expect everything to blow up soon.
