  1. I'll be on for 8.30. I can fee another tactics board coming on.
  2. That's unfortunate. But we did only spot it when celebrating our second goal we heard someone angrily shout "Where were the fucking full backs?!?". Hence us lot all shouting "But where were the full backs?!?" during the celebrations of our next three goals. EDIT: Well that was a badly timed post. Not my fault though, where were the full backs?
  3. For what it's worth, I'm not asking for any changes to BAP League player ratings, just interested in how to make mine a bit higher. I spent the last two games playing very deep as a RB (under strict instructions from Wincho), completely ignoring the arrows and rightly getting marked down for it. But I also got that red "-Defence" message every time the other team kicked off. Now that was because the two forward were passing to each other and the game has decided that as a defender, allowing the two opposition forwards to pass to each other is a bad thing. But from kick off?!?! Not much I can do about that is there?
  4. The ratings are indeed all over the place for defenders. Obviously I would say that, given my massive 0.8 in my first game, but when I get 8.1 in the next match for seemingly playing worse (more missed tackles - lower pass completion) it does scream broken. Also, my camera is saved as Tele Custom for Bap games. I did it from the arena and it has stuck. I'm not sure why it's not saving for everyone else. I've a question: Does anyone know what that green bar below your stamina bar is? It seems to grow and shrink for no discernable reason. MUCH LIKE MY NOB LOLZ.
  5. In other news, Jaffa cakes have been completely banned from Mitchell's house for being 'not technically' biscuits.
  6. Obviously we've not reached the giddy Town heights of making gutteral grunting noises and flinging our poo at each other.
  7. So then chaps, a tactics request. Being still new to United - and I'm sure Boobs will agree with me on this one - I'm yet to learn everyone's voice. So can we have a "Tyler wants" or "Manic wants" rather than "I'm open!!!11!!1oneone". When I'm on the ball, I don't want to wast precious microseconds trying to work who the fuck is yelling for a pass. Even better would be "Milly wants, short ball", "Humdrum wants, switch sides" or "Tyler wants, chipped through ball". Although I doubt that'll happen in the heat of the battle.
  8. I really recommend the 'just bung anything in a pan' approach, you'll start having soup that's far tastier than anything out of a tin and the feeling of satisfaction you get from a great recipe you've made up yourself is priceless. Here's one I made earlier. You can tell I've made it because I just bung 'some stuff' in my soups without actually measuring anything. Some fish (a fillet of smoked haddock/bunch of prawns/anything that's on offer) Some Cabbage Some Peas Some Dill 2 chopped cloves Garlic Chilli paste About a litre of vegetable stack A lump of butter Salt and Pepper But the Butter, Dill, cabbage, peas and fish in a big pan and cook on a low heat for about 20 minutes. Then put everything else in. You'll want a bit more pepper than you think. Cook on Low heat for 1 hour. Serve with white wine. Or Cider. Or beer. I don't know, I had it with lemonade the other day. OM NOM NOM NOM. Then put the rest in the freezer. Alternatively, Soups keep for about 2/3 days in the fridge.
  9. For those who are already bored of the Tyler/Gray patnership, I heartily recommend Mexican Spanish. "Espesheshesh e-tento placento esheshesh TERRIBLAY PASS-ING". Deep breath everyone...... "GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAALLLLLLLL......"
  10. My vote would be to definitely have a 7th tier. The fact that I'm number 21 on the waiting list has nothing to do with this opinion.
  11. Zambrotta eh? He's got pretty good crossing stats hasn't he....
  12. Awesome, thanks again for this Dazza. Question though. So it's the highest card from the five that determins the winner right? So............ A-2-3-5-7 would beat: A-2-3-4-8 ...correct? Or does that 4 come into play?
  13. I posted this in the BAP thread but I'd thought I'd stick it here as well. This Virtual Pro stuff is horribly unbalanced for defenders. Even though I'm playing as RB, any pass the opposition makes in my half of the pitch = minus points. They play a ball down the left wing? Minus Points. Their right winger takes a shot? Minus Points. Your CB commits a foul? Minus Points. Your DM misses a tackle? Minus Points. You press the A button to skip a replay and your player asks for a pass. Guess what? Minus Points. Here's my stats from the Millwall v Exeter game I just played: Passes: 17/18 Dribbles: 6/6 Tackles: 5/5 Opposition shots: 2 Clean sheet kept: Yes. Overall rating? 4.2 Anyone else finding this?

  15. I'm in. My created pro's a right back as well.
  16. I bet that felt exactly the same as watching England get knocked out of the world cup on penalties.
  17. I like your styles. Unfortunately, not being in the league yet and supporting 1-and-a-half star Millwall, I'll have to come up with a different selection process.
  18. So what teams are people using against the Real/Man City picking randoms? And I'll be around most of today if anyone fancies a kick-about.
  19. This for me is a thing of absolute beauty. I've had some fantastic matches tonight, a 3 game thriller against Humdrum which saw me score an own goal in each match, a ding-dong battle with SaintM which he somehow won 3-0 and an epic Derby vs Millwall 5 goal thriller against Timmo. There was a moment in the Derby-Millwall game where Timmo's boys in white were pressing the play, looking to steal the ball from me and launch their devastating counter through 'Gifted' Gary Teale. And I wouldn't let them have it. Knocking the ball around the back four, along the line to the winger, back to the defenders when the opening closes, quick inside to Jimmy "he'll-score-more-than-you" Abdou, nothing's on so lay it back... I must've linked together at least 30-odd passes, all the while those Rams players were chasing shadows. What a great game.
  20. Sooooo.... considering I'm number 21 on the list, are there to be 2 new divisions this season? Looks like that's the only way I'll get to play for a least a couple of seasons.
  21. Popped down to my local indie this evening to pick it up. "Copy of Fifa10 on the 360 please." "That's £49.99" "Really!?! Your games are usually £32." "Yeah, but we've had such a big demand for this to break street date we could really use the extra cash from marking it up." "Well that's cool, it's your store and I guess you need all the help you can get. I'll wait 'till tomorrow and go elsewhere though, can't justify an extra £20. How many copies you sold today anyway?" "Two."
  22. I'm picking up 10 today, but will be up for 09 BAP if that's the consensus. No big Supermarkets near me so £32 + a fay early from my local indie will have to do. Oh yeah, what time we playing?
  23. Ah right of course. That makes a lot of sense.
