    >>>>>Transfer question<<<<<<


    Lets say if you are buying a player from another club but he has the same number as your squad player can you give the new player another number?

    just some info on the career mode

    you can't start with ManUtd, Arsenal etc

    I picked Aberdeen fullfilled my season targets (top3) and even won the cup but couldn't play with United afterwards (I set United as my fave team at the begining of FIFA)

    I choose a YB a swiss club and saw that their Number 9 player Chapuisat (formely Dortmund) wasn't there anymore but a new generic player...
    So I assume that because Chapuisat is quite old already and said he will finish after this season was taken into account by EA

    Same probably is with Shearer etc


    FIFA05 is a good game but 2 things are sh*yte

    no CC yet - you just can create players - not edit the ones by EA !
    Career Mode too stupid - should be free to pick who we want, when we want.

    I have finally concluded my first season with mighty Torino of Italy's Serie B division.

    After 42 games, we finished with a league-best 28 wins, 8 draws, and 6 losses. 92 points overall bested #2 Perugia by 13. Torino's 100 Goals For led the league, but their 40 Goals Against also tied for 9th-worst. Just 17 clean sheets in 42 games spoke of the inexperience of the defense, and the uncertainty of the goalie position on the team.

    The addition of striker Emile Heskey proved to be the biggest move of the year, but the sale of starting goalie Stefano Sorrentino, who had been superb much of the season, came as a shock. 23 year-old Andreas Isaksson was brought in and gave a mixed-performance in the last few games of the season.

    Many options were given to the upstart manager after that first season: Watford, Milton Keynes, Derby County, and Crewe of Football league Champ all pursued him. Dundee and Dundee United of the Scottish Premier league showed interest. Several Brazilian clubs, the likes of Botafogo, Sao Paulo, and Vasco De Gama, as well as nearly all of the MLS tried to lure him to their side. The most tempting offer, perhaps, came from Parma of Italy's Serie A. However, in the end, Torino was the only choice that showed up in his heart, and a return to the club brought up from Serie B to Serie A was made.

    This season, the board expects to finish in the top half of the table, a tall task for a short-handed squad facing some of the world's best compeition.

    There are already rumors of unrest going around the locker room. "How are we supposed to compete with such a tight budget, and no upgrades to the staff!? We dominated the competition last season, and our reward is a pat on the back?", one team official was reportedly overheard spouting off.

    One thing is for sure though, with AC Milan circled on the calendar is just one short month, Torino will soon find out what facing true competition is all about.


    (Edit: I'm truly amazed I didn't get a single boost in budget or upgrade points (I only received the 'unlock points') for succeeding to reach the team goal, win Serie B, and advance to Serie A. I don't think I have any chance whatsoever of competing in Serie A, and I don't see how I'll ever be able to afford to buy a quality player when I receive little to nothing for losses/draws.)

    Wow!

    For Torino's first match of Serie A play, they headed into the familiar grounds of Lazio. Having lost to Lazio last season in the Coppa Nazionale, Torino hoped to exact some revenge in league play. Lazio came out strong early, and after a hard challenge by Federico Balzaretti in the box, Simone Inzaghi was awarded a penalty shot. As Andreas Isaksson stood opposite of Inzaghi, Torino fans everywhere knew this could set the tone for the club's year. A poor start, and things could go downhill quickly for this young club. As Inzaghi wound up and ripped one toward Isaksson's left, the promising young Swede showed why he was voted the top keeper in all of Sweden not so long ago! The penalty shot richocheted off of Isaksson's fingertips and out of bounds for a corner. The deafening chants of "Lazio! Lazio! Lazio!" were quieted in one fell swoop, and the Torino club seemed to gain a confidence never before seen. Their defense was as tight as it had ever been, allowing 0 shots in the first half, aside from the penalty try. Both clubs went into the half scoreless, and the new arrivals seemed to be proud of their resolve thus far. The second half started off strong for Torino, as they put on early pressure, leading to a free kick chance at the 49th minute. Emile Heskey placed a shot on goal, and after several deflections, an unlikely soul registered Torino's first goal of the season! Midfielder Filippo Maniero found the loose ball at his feet, and struck it home for a 1-0 lead. Emile Heskey was seen charging toward the goal all alone in the 58th minute, when he was dragged down by a Lazio defender. As the crowd groaned, Heskey lined up for another free kick, and this time he did the honors himself, lofting it into the corner over helpless goalkeeper Matteo Sereni to make it 2-0. Four minutes later, in the 62nd minute, Akeem Omolade added another, and that's how it finished, 3-0.

    stop complaining, career mode is class. That's the way it should be starting off with a lower club. I'm chester and second at the moment after a nervy start.
    Btw.. two questions:
    Do you have to offer contracts to players when buying them?
    Can you transfer list players?

    No, it appears you simply "own" a player as long as you want. I have no idea on retirements/new players. However, players can reject your offer to buy them, for whatever reason (there are several they give).

    No transfer listing, no. You receive random offers though. You can simply offer to sell one of your players, and you'll get an offer to buy from a team for the "value" price listed.

    As the Starting 11 jogged onto the field, the home supporters in Delle Alpi erupted in applause for their players. A hard-fought victory against Lazio a week ago set the stage for the home-opener against Udinese. Facing a 3-5-2 for the first time, Torino seemed awkward in their attack, and turned the ball over before they could get anything meaningful started up. Udinese utilized a strong counter-attack, which led to a quick goal by David Di Michele just 5 minutes in. Though subdued, the Torino crowd persevered, and held out hope, given last week's result. Di Michele was able to slip by the defense once again in the 26th minute, this time loding one in the top corner to make it 2-0 Udinese.

    Many would have counted out Torino, last year's gems of Serie B, if not for a single man....

    Emile Heskey.

    It was expected that Torino would rely heavily this season on the magic Heskey showed against Serie B competition last season. Seemingly able to take over a game all by himself, Heskey was easily the most important acquisition in all of Serie B in 2004.

    At the 36th minute, Heskey found his way past the midfield defense, and had little trouble with the backs on his way to striking home a goal to make it 2-1. As simple as that, the crowd began roaring for their boys in red once again. Cutting the lead in half and getting on the board before halftime was a huge accomplishment. However, things got even better as Andre Luciano Pinga was able to evade the midfield challenge of Udinese and get it to Heskey on the wing. As Heskey spun around the right back and drew the ire of goalkeeper Morgan De Sanctis, fellow striker Akeem Omolade snuck in from behind, and was in perfect position to receive Heskey's pass and tap home the equalizer, making it 2-2. The Udinese players were on their heels, and Heskey delivered a knockout just moments later. Off the re-start, Emile stole the ball away and had a wide-open midfield as he ran toward the keeper's left. With CB Hernan Silvera rushing in to meet him, Heskey put all his force behind a shot that struck Silvera's leg, sent the keeper sprawling the wrong way, and rolled into the goal without a soul around to stop it.

    Torino went into the half up 3-2, with all the momentum they could hope for, and the dream of a 2-0-0 start in Serie A just 45 minutes away.

    Udinese came out determined to tie it back up, and their star of the game, David Di Michele began a charge of his own toward the goal. But he wouldn't be so lucky, as a strong sliding challenge from Luca Mezzano sent him collapsing to the ground, holding his ankle. Mezzano received a yellow card, and there's no question that he earned it. That essentially put an end to Udinese's attack, as they had few more dangerous chances during the game. The home crowd had plenty to cheer about in the second half though, as Emile Heskey embarassed the Udinese defenders on back-to-back occasions, scoring again in the 76th and 78th minutes, leaving the final score at 5-2 (4 goals for Heskey!) in favor of the home squad.

    This dream start just may keep up for 2 more weeks, as Torino is scheduled to face two clubs who were recently promoted as well, Genoa (0-1-1) and Ascoli (0-0-2).

    However, it is September 25th that will certainly fill Delle Alpi from wall to wall. Shevchenko, Kaka, Nesta, Pirlo, Dida, and all the rest of AC Milan (2-1-0) will pay a visit for a matchup you should be sure not to miss!

    Go to Transfer Market, select one of your players, and hit 'negotiate', as just if you were buying a player from another squad. It seems there is always -someone- out there willing to buy any player you have, so there is no need for a transfer listing.

    hey zhariken, nobody has said thank you enough for all of your help. I thank you...and have a question of my own.


    In the franchise mode, can I start with any MLS team that I want?? I'd love to be the Metrostars and then transfer to the EPL when the time came...at least i'm familiar with that team(instead of whatever the hell a Yeovil Town is...).

    thanks!

    You're welcome :) I'm happy I can answer some questions and help people out.

    As far as starting your career in MLS....it appears you're in luck! All 10 MLS teams are at your disposal to pick from in your rookie campaign. Considering they're all 3-star teams (argue that one amongst yourselves ;)) that's quite a bit of talent to get in your first season.

    Edit: By the way, how can you not love a team that promotes gambling right on their homepage? ;)

    Thanks so much, man! You are truly doing a service and my anticipation for this game is insane. I am so much happier knowing that I can be the Metro and that my favorite league is available to me(it's my favorite because the Metrostars are the only club i really root for with my heart..not because it's anywhere near the quality of the EPL...which i also love).
    i normally HATE people who ask for ratings, but any chance you can post the starting 11 for the metrostars??? and ratings with em....thanks if you can, if not...thanks for everything.

    MORE TORINO STORIES!!! It helps me pass the time until wednesday...if new york....

    I had a great first season with Vitesse Arnhem from Holland, ending 2nd behind Ajax Amsterdam (my favourite squad!). Just added Bodor (Roda JC; great defender) and Aruna (Anderlecht; that's a low price top striker) to the squad and it worked like magic. Beating up Ajax in the Dutch Cup semi's with a 3-1 away, the final against Feyenoord was tough but won by penalties.

    The funny thing is, if you succeed to perform up to the standard, your favourit team offers you the manager job after the first or second season. So either I choose to stay with Vitesse and play Champions League qualif's, or I move to Ajax and try my luck there...hmmm...

    I had a one time crash though and it worried me a bit. Few things that bugged me, are the fonts (Ajax does not have the traditional Adidas font!) and the fact that you can't decide in a custom tournament, which jersey you want to pick. Gameplay is satisfying and realistic. Allthough Dutch commentary is dreadfull, really...and I'd wish only we could extend half-time periods.

    thanks for the updates <b>Zhariken</b>

    Could you do me one favor? Can you see if it is possible to start as Nationwide First Division teams (aka the Championship) in career mode?

    I'm a diehard QPR fan, and I'd find it incredibly ironic that when we finally start having some success after years of pain and misery, I can't play with them in Fifa....
