Record of cleared debts

FM Screenshot of the Day, #150

It’s time to show you something interesting and original. I have a number of FM screenshots that belong to easter eggs of Football Manager, but I plan to make a separate post for all of them, so I have to show you something else. Today’s screenie is also worth your attention, because it describes record of cleared debts. Can you imagine such a big debt that was cleared? It’s hard to believe someone will pay such a sum just to clear debts instead of creating a new club or investing into another one. But here’s screenshot that shows us it’s possible. At least, in CM/FM. Voila.

Lowest average rating

FM Screenshot of the Day, #149

Here’s the lowest rating I’ve seen in FM. A person in a game or two can receive low ratings, but in this case extremely low rating is a results of 12 games played by footballer! What a weak player he should be?

Of course, it’s a bug. It was old-school CM03-04 so it had some bugs like this. Otherwise I even can’t find reasons for football manager to get this player back on football field 🙂

FMH bug

FM Screenshot of the Day, #148

PSP version of Football Manager also has some bugs. Today’s screenshot confirms this fact. Notice that goalkeeper has conceded 4 goals in his 6 games for Castilla, but in his career’s stats you can see that he played 41 games. Of course, conceding just 4 goals in 41 games is a big benefit, but not in this case  when it’s obviously a bug. Well, it’s hard to find a game without bugs, isn’t it? 😉

Referee dismissal

FM Screenshot of the Day, #147

Here’s another one rare screen of FM present since CM. If you ever complained to Football Assosiation about referee that victimize your team, then you’ll like this screenie, because it show us that referee can also be dismissed as a result of your words! Almost always FA answers that referee isn’t guilty, but as you see, sometimes you’re the person who is right!

Sell on fee clause

FM Screenshot of the Day, #146

When you sell a player in FM, you can set up sell on fee clause option if you want receive profit from player’s future transfer. But what if that player will come back to your team? Will you receive part of spent money back? Theoretically not, because it’s a stupid case to get back some money after player will return to the same club. But as today’s Football Manager screenshot show, you will get your money. Is it a bug? No, it’s more seems like a fun way to lose some of your money as a result.

CM01-02 Wallpaper

FM Screenshot of the Day, #145

Have you seen CM/FM wallpapers? I don’t know if there’s any other ones but this one is definitely the best. Released more than 10 years ago, it still reflects thoughts of football manager fans – favourite game plus hot babe 🙂

Tireless Neymar

FM Screenshot of the Day, #144

I don’t know if it’s a bug or not but it seems strange to me that after 90 mins of game Neymar still was at 99% of his condition. He scored a goal and made assist, he was active as the only forward of home team, and he lost only 1%? I don’t believe it. Most of all it’s a bug, I suppose. Even goalkeeper who didn’t have a lot of work lose more.

Strange Luxembourg

FM Screenshot of the Day, #143

Today’s Football Manager screenshot is another one that makes me lost in thoughts. At the first glance, the situation is clear – Ukraine was much too strong for Luxembourg and scored more than ten goals during the game. But the thing I can’t understand is a behaviour of Luxembourg team manager. He didn’t make a substitution at all! Can you imagine it in the game with the score like this? I can’t. And there was full bench of sub players who could came to the field. Maybe the manager decided that the footballers from the starting 11 are the best of all he has? But it’s obvious that with such a score a changes must be done. So, it’s still a surprise for me what was AI thinking of.

El Classico in Champions League

FM Screenshot of the Day, #142

At today’s screenshot you can see El Classico in 3rd qualifying round of Champions League. And it’s a bug, in my opinion. As I know, two teams from the same country can’t play against each other in qualifying rounds of CL, isn’t it? If it’s true, then it’s quite fun to see another Real Madrid vs Barcelona game on european stage of such a level.

Incredible Eto'o

FM Screenshot of the Day, #141

Samuel Eto’o is incredible goal machine. Even when he played for Mallorca, he was scoring goals with ease. He’s one of the best football players in the world for years and of course he does the same in FM. I’ve got one more confirmation of this when I decided to take a look at another transfers update for CM01-02 made by guys from www.champman0102.co.uk couple of years ago and noticed that Eto’o scored seven goals in one game. What a fantastic achievement, isn’t it? Ronaldo was also such a goalscorer when we was shining in Internazionale or Real Madrid, but at those years football was somewhat another. But it’s topic of another article. This one is praising Samuel Eto’o (as well as CM01-02) 🙂
