    well EA will release the second official patch for the game
    "This is indeed the news you've all been waiting for. A second patch is coming for Total Club Manager 2005 based on the excellent feedback you in the community have been posting here. The patch will primarily fix crash issues such as the "Control not set" bug and gameplay issues such as squads getting too big. Significant improvements to Football Fusion will also be included.

    We do not currently have a precise date for the release however we are targeting the release for before Christmas.

    Thanks again for the continued feedback you've all provided, we always appreciate it and are glad that we can now respond in the best possible way by creating this patch."

    from the official forums:
    Update: Work on the patch is approaching completion however it now looks like it will not be released before Christmas since once finished it will need to be tested too. We'll let you guys know as soon as we hear more on the matter.

    theres no news about that until now, its really uncertain what is going to be in the patch, like i posted before the patch will be released after christmas, so the news about it will be out in a few days i guess.

    the only thing i can recomend is to close any antivirus or firewall, check your latest 3d graphic card drivers

    hope the 2nd patch can correct the free transfer problem.
    i can see exodus after exodus every season.

    is there really such a clause for player to leave like that on the real stage?
    i learned the players leaving without sale are those who probably didnt get to play any games.

    another update from the official forums
    "The patch is currently in QA being tested. Given that some of the fixed bugs require you to play through a lot of seasons we anticipate it taking a couple of weeks yet to get approved and in your hands. So it's still looking like a January release, but most likely somewhere around the end of the month right now.

    We know you want to get your hands on the patch ASAP, but at the same time we also want to get this patch right. More updates as I get them."

    Last Update:
    "Quick update on patch 1.2 lads. This is not a complete list of included fixes - in particular we'll be announcing Fusion details at a later date. Despite this it should give you a good idea of what the patch is due to offer.

    - The line-up crash has been fixed.
    - The crashes at the end of the week have been fixed.
    - Games will now save without any problems.
    - Squad size will stay at sensible levels now with the team sizes being reduced over time.
    - Substituted players keep their ratings and don’t receive the worst possible rating.
    - Players now play in their intended positions.
    - Players will only accept a reasonable amount of offers in Create a Club.
    - The Executive Boxes are fully displayed in the stadiums.
    - Training objectives continue to work after one or more skill reaches a level of 99.
    - The base values for goalkeeping, defending etc. are now displayed on the Player Information screen. This is true for the youth players too.
    - Career mode offers are now working (not only offers from one country after the first round), it is no longer possible that two players receive offers from the same club
    - Multiplayer games no longer crash during the half-time of a 3D match.
    - Newly signed players will be able to play in the European Cup accordant to the competition rules.
    - If a player picture is detected it is pre-selected on the Player Information screen
    - If the user selects man marking this selection will be kept for the duration of the game.
    - The reserve team formation is kept if selected on the Assistant’s screen.
    - The ticket prices are no longer reset to the default values after a season
    - The match calendar in Italy won’t create clashing match dates any more.
    - The suitable mentors are now displayed in the correct colour.

    As ever, we'll pass on any further information as we receive it."

    latest update so far:
    "To clarify, Fusion has been noted as one of the highest priority issues with TCM05 at the present time and it was specifically requested for the patch. We do not yet have news about whether or how much it has been improved but we have been told that we will be told something about Fusion and the patch.

    It's a bit of a non-answer, I know, but at present the patch is going through a series of tests and revisions - we don't want anything else to break because of the game fixes being worked on after all.

    While we're optimistic the patch will be complete and with us soon we do not have any hard and fast dates, so rather than saying it'll be next week or the week after or whenever the safest bet is that it'll be "soon". As soon as we know anything more solid than that we'll let you know, but we don't want to give you expectations or when it'll arrive if we're not 100% certain of when that will be."
