I wish I did that I wasn't really paying attention. And I have all kind of ''quickstarts'' (save games at the start, without choosing a club yet). Then I don't have to wait for it so long every time (it's on large db)
My name is Leandro, you can call me that if you want too. And i think Ben meant Centre-Midfielder, not Championship Manager lol. I might as well start a game in the Brazilian League when i get bored of Liverpool i guess, i think i'll be going with São Paulo or Cruzeiro.
William in CM4 was a gem for me when i was playing with the NT (sorry but i had to do this.. now i'm trying the proper way ). Dont know in 03/04 though, well, at least you'll have a lot of money to spend, 11 mil, you can buy heaps of players in the brazilian league.
I've signed Burdisso, Martinez and Reyes, for a total of almost 40 million. I decided to do a Chelsea i guess. Sold Owen for 22 mil, potential 25, that was the best offer i've got, so, goodbye. I'm bidding on Cavenaghi now, also, Real Madrid offered 46 mil for Gerrard, plus Zidane, Figo and Kallstrom. I almost accepted it, but Gerrard is my captain and my most important player i guess.
I won the french league and the french cup with Marseille. was knocked out of the CL in the semi finals by milan.
I ended that game and I found back my Sheff. Utd game:
I became champions of the first division without losing a game( but I did draw 12 games, almost all of them are 0-0 cuz of the F****** shooting bug) now I got Lionel Morgan and Taribo West on a free. Our friendly campaign was a bit with ups and downs. lost 3-0 from vit. guimares(I believe) . lost 3-0 from Sporting Lisbon . but won with 1-0 from Benfica . lost with 2-1 from stoke . Nice result against deportivo(champions of la liga): 1-1 . drawn with 0-0 against Grimsby but won again from celta with 2-0 .
Started a game with São Paulo at Brazil. I've already offered contracts to Dudu Cearense and Dagoberto. Also, i'm trying to sign Toledo and some american defender called Montalvan, or Montalban. His stats look good at least, he's better than Lugano (some uruguayan defender, average let's say..)
