How the **** did you afford Modric, Gotze and Hummels?

Slid wages over to transfer fee and had about 94m to spend. I think Hummels was 28m and Gotze was 54m, for a total of 82m. Sold Tevez for 20m over 4 years, slid his wages into transfer fees. Bought Modric for 55m over 4 years. Actually still had like 15m more to spend.

If you so all the transfers over 48 months you might be able to. Who cares about finances in the long term, it's the demo and you are City.

If anyone pre ordered this on steam and doesn't also happen to play Team Fortress 2, I'd be very interested in buying you a cheap steam game in exchange for the tf2 items.

Has this ******* game leaked yet? Come on hackers...

Curious to see how they'll get around the Steam registration. Purely for academic purposes of course, I'd never do it myself.

Bought the game impatiently waiting for it from... other sources. Anyway, I think I might actually play my first game as Gladbach. I just really like the team with Reus, Arango, De Carmago, ter Stegen, Dante, and Nordveit. They need a goalscorer though. I think maybe making a play for Sturridge or Lukaku (both?) on loan could be in the cards. It's late though, so I'll wait till tomorrow.

Waiting for the game to arrive today. /life.

I think I'm going to take over either Dortmund or Leverkusen, not sure yet. I'm excited to finally manage some of the German supertalents. I'm leaning towards Leverkusen because Dortmund already won the Bundesliga IRL last season.

Also, if more people get the game, why not start the Succession Game early this time around? I'm still into the Luch-Energiya Vladivostok idea.

Fired up the game with Borussia Dortmund. Very exciting team, and attempted to make it more exciting with my first signing: Xherdan Shaqiri.

Die Borussen and I then won our first prize: the German Super Cup vs. Schalke - 3-0 (Kagawa (excellent), Zidan and Grosskreutz). For the first time in FM I saw a goalkeeper get sent off for a handball (outside of the area, naturally). Fahrmann caught the ball and a glitch seemed to move him over the line. The ref showed no mercy... RED CARD! 'Glitch? Get outtaaaa here!' If that ever happens to my goalkeeper, say in a Champions League Final, I will break sh*t, though!

I don't think I can fully commit to this game. Unless I play River plate from Argentina and bring them back to the first division, or wait till "God" releases SG 2012. :(

Sounds fun man, I am ending up having my customary first game as Bayern. Purchased Reus; my goal is to have an all German XI in the future. Neuer; Boateng, Badstuber, Lahm, Hummels; Schweinsteiger, Kroos, Reus, Muller, Gotze; Gomez.

Only have to purchase the two Dortmund players to make it happen too! Hoping for Hummels in 2012, and Gotze in 2013 to replace Robben. Would also love to get Sahin in (I consider him German).

Is it true that there is a some kind of "bug" - goalkeepers positioning is awful? Demo was good although.

It may have been a freak accident instead of a glitch. I've seen real life goalkeepers lose their concentration that way... PSV's Isaksson did it last year. He's very clumsy.

Actually ShiftyPowers, I'm also looking to have an all-German team with all those talents (or at least a very high percentage). I already created a shortlist. I definitely want Ter Stegen to replace Weidenfeller eventually, and I'm also looking at Reus who's a realistic target right now. Some of the others may be out of my league now, like Muller (and I'm not sure about Schurrle), but that may be a different matter in a few years.

Do you have some recommendations for German talents at smaller teams? Ones that are perhaps unknown to me because they haven't made their debut for the national team yet, but are starting to make their mark in Bundesliga.

Apparently it is a bug, in the default training setting set for your team and every AI team the slider is low on whatever affects positioning, therefore that goes down a lot (I've heard 1 - 2 attributes a month). Positioning is important for goalkeepers. However SI said they are looking into it and will provide a patch soon.
