Football Manager 14 Announced

My problem is defensively I can't seem to stop them from getting right in on goal. I'm scoring a ton of goals (Özil as a trequartista and Cazorla as am AM pretty much makes PL defenders shit themselves). I'm trying to find a good rotational partner for Giroud though, he's been my only dependable striker. Sanogo has a long term shoulder problem, Poldi's form is poor and Bendtner is a joke. I'm trying Walcott there to mixed results.

I noticed on the demo that Cleverly is on the transfer list for Man Utd. He came up when I searched for players that were good give-and-go players + good pressing and team-work (e.g. Barca type). He'd be a good buy for teams looking for an all-around CM imo.

He probably would be. Arsenal have a youth player called Carlos Jebb who looks good in a similar role too, I've used him in the League Cup.

I'm just kind of screwing around now trying to figure out these new roles and who might shine in them. The wide target man one seems kind of interesting, I'm trying to think of someone who might excel there. Samaras does it for Celtic and Greece but he's getting on a bit. Might be useful with someone like Walcott who can use their pace run onto service from him.

After a search, Diego Costa can play AMR. He seems suited. C Ronaldo too. And Maiga of West Hame can play AML. You could also move Rondon to the wing.

Yeah Muller fit my thoughts exactly, did the same a few phases vs barca to great effect

This year's version will be the first time the game will accept my real age when creating a manager. :(

Haha, yeah. On the demo when I realized that I let go an exasperated "...oh".

Russian version is out. Much sooner than last year's.

Don't download, what's out isn't stable. I had a vision in a dream where it crashes at a certain point.

high on coke + aspirin right nowwww.... so high that I feel like if someone had released a file that fixed those crashes.

I've been trying out the new demo for the first time, overall it looks good. However, I'm playing as Chelsea and for some reason none of my English players count as HG. Terry, Lamps, Cole, Cahill, Bertrand, etc. None of them have the HG icon and I just got to the first time I'm supposed to register my team and I can't because my entire squad is foreign. If I let the assman do it, he fills it up with sucky u18s. Anyone else get this?

Went into full fantasy mode, too, getting Alaba, Lewy, Pogba and Shaqiri (loaned out De Bruyne). That last one just to have a natural playing on the right side.
