Not sure what you mean by activation code. Steam installed it and let me play straight away.

Will do Scott no worries :)

I finished my first season with Newcastle in 8th place.

Vicente is available from Valencia for around £4M
Matias fernandez from Villareal for around £8M
Marcelo from Real Madrid is available for around £5M
Rafinha from Shalke is available for around £12M
Rodney Sneijder from Ajax (Wesley's younger brother) is available for around £1M

Wheel and deal some players if you can :)

I've just started my first game after numerous problems because of Steam being gay.

I'm Chester, I'll let you know how I get on as the game gets further into the future :)

Yeah got mine sorted now, about to start playing, I'm thinking of going Man City.

Anyone know if the first patch just got automatically installed via Steam?

I believe Steam is auto updating FM09 with patches.

Half way through my second season. You will be happy to know that Chelsea and Man City seem to be racing to sign better players, meaning you can get their first purchases half price because they are unhappy and want first team football. I have beaten Man City and Chelsea for signing 2 players who are integral in keeping me in a game and I enjoy rejecting 20 and 30 million pound bids for these players now.

May try and start with my home town team Scarborough, see what damage I can do :P

Azzy, thats where these games actually come in to play. there's nothing more satisfying than taking a lower league/non league team to the top. does take a long time but its an amazing feeling when it all goes good.

See that is where I see it differently. I play Newcastle because you can never win anything within a few seasons. But all I care about is finding players, then looking for them in real life games, to see if they compare. Like when I found Tevez on Champ man and a few years later everyone is ranting and raving about him. Just like to find out which "obviously not the comp generated ones" players are like they are in game. Then hope your own team go ahead and win.

Oh I very rarely get through 2 seasons without restarting :P

How do you guys pick your team?

Do you play about with the tactics?

Do you set opposition instructions?

I generally pick 4-4-2. Sometimes with an attacking midfielder running through backing up the strikers.

I do mess with the tactics. I look at what kind of players I have and what they are best at. The mentality I almost always use is attacking. Creative freedom is much if I have a lot of players with good flair/passing.
Obviously using the wide tactic is good if you have fast wingers and people who can pass well in midfield/defense. I used mixed on most others unless im trying to win/draw a game and need to push on or using long ball tactic.

I always select my target men and playmakers. And never underestimate choosing your corner and throw in takers. It works wonders if you do. Penalty takers is a must as well, dont want any numpty taking an important penalty.

I always tight mark and always counter attack. Actually going into each player and selecting individual tactics for them can work as well. Odejayi at Barnsley is no fantastic striker but he can hold a ball up and head it on for another striker to play on from. You can tell them to do this for you. I once selected one of my strikers to man mark their goalie to see what happened. I got 30 offsides in the match. :D

I also use opposition instructions as well. Like tight marking and hard tackling. Hard tackling works as well. Look for slightly unfit players in the opposition team and get your team to hard tackle them. You can injure them pretty easy and take them out of the game. (i do not condone this in real life though!)
But I'm feeling good, And if you don't exist, you're still one illusion that I can't resist

4-5-1 effectively 3 central midfielders and 2 attacking wingers.

I sort out all my set pieces on individual people. I sort out individual tactics to have people running lots or staying defensive.

I also choose my team on my favourite players more than I do of how good they are, which sometimes causes problems and I need to panic sub half way through the game.

Thanks for those replies, fantastic!

Here is what I do.....

I have a main squad of 22, that's two players for each position. I'm not too sure if this works well for me though, I must spend at least 30 minutes at the start of each of my clubs to compare the entire number of players to get down to my 1st 11 and my 2nd 11 based on who has the highest number of better stats.

I usually just run with an attacking 4-4-2 and I never ever touch the training routines. I think I'll start playing around with tactics and see what I can do :)

Thanks again guys!

We could print screen some of our tactics to share them and give a rough ration of how well they work :)

Its a copy of what fm portal do :D If not fmportal has a vast array of tactics others have used to look at an adjust different aspects of your own :)

FM08 is better? Lol, whoever told you that deserves to get slapped in the face with a wet kipper.

Definitely worth getting mate, there is so much more feedback in this installment which has been lacking in each previous release so it's far easier to make the right decisions regarding every aspect of the game.
