    If you ****ed around with the settings for every game it would take nearly 1 months playing every day to get through a season!!!
    WHere can I find this allusive feature? Took on the Jets for first season. Struggled in Pre-season lost to Sydney Olympic and a few other non-A-league teams. 11K Budget (thanks guys). WOn first round match against Adelaide 3-1. Kanta MOM with match rating of 9.2 :|. I can see how it is addictive.

    One of the drop down menus has Go On Holiday as an option.

    Thanks! I had seen that. Was wondering what it was. Didn't think the board would approve of my holiday, mid season. Thanks!

    I am assuming the handheld version is similar to this. I will probably buy it this week while it is on sale

    will you be able to use your demo save when the game is released?

    and to all new players http://www.fmscout.com/ this site will be your new best friend

    All the Holiday mode does is allow the game to play out with out the constant stops and interruptions. Set it for a two weeks a month and when you come back the games have been run and won(lost) and you can tweak away. Only problem with this is that if something goes pear shaped you miss out on the chance to rectify it when it happens and may pay the price for it later.

    2013 is out TODAY, ladies and gents.

    Hope they fix preferred club data, do not want to see Lord Griffo sign for the scum again.

    Griff signs!

    Preferred personnel still rubbish. Whoever the researchers are are a joke. They have BRIDGES as a club legend, KANTAROVSKI as a club icon. Griff is nowhere

    But he has SIGNED. £10k transfer fee, £12.5k per week as Aus Marquee. GRIFF COMES HOME, YEWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW

    griff needs to come back. Scored goal of the season again, fell a goal short of Jets top scorer though. Ryu 11, Esky 10, Lord Griff 10.

    Its almost just like that one he scored at Stade de Newy all those years ago when Nicky Carle ran interference for him and Griffo ran the length of the field and toe poked it with the outside of the foot into the top corner

    Happy Days

    Game is brilliant.

    Lord Griff has told me he wants to become a scout once his playing days are done... and says "I can sign up now if you want?". Now Australian Marquee and Newcastle Jets Chief Scout.

    Not sure how that works, but well in Lord Griff.

    got bored with doing the same thing every year so this year now decided id take charge at Bradford Park Avenue in Blue Square North. see how we go

    No no no no no. Nick Carle scored that one. Refuse to acknowledge what you say.

    Would have been good if he scored a second like that in the gf though!

    Heskey is now Player/Head of Youth Development, no longer marquee.
    Lord Griff was happy to take a monster paycut, down from £16.5k to £1.9k, no longer marquee.

    Now on the hunt for two marquees...
