View Full Version : How are you doing in FIFA 12 manager mode?
MM is the main reason I play this game aside from Virtual Pro. I'm currently in April in my first season with Roma, my line-up looks like:
Barchetti(not sure of the name tbh)
I signed quite a few players as you can see. Corluka has been my most consistent player and has improved from 76 to 79. Baines has been decent and scored a great free kick for me. I also signed Thiago and Ramsey on loan but they aren't doing too well. Milner is a great super sub for me. Wynne is a crap defender but the fastest player in the game(Acc 99 SS 98). Maicon is also extremely fast(Acc 98 SS 97) and Agbonlahor is good too.
I'm first in Serie A, still in the cup, got some promising youngsters in the youth team as well. Bojan is top scorer with 21 goals and he's been my definite no. 1. With Stekelenburg not too far behind. I've conceded about 8 penalties and none of them have gone in thanks to Stekelenburg.
I'm not sure whether I'll move come the end of the season simply because I have assembled a very good team and the playing style suits me. If I get an offer from a team like Arsenal or such I'll have to go obviously.
So, how have YOU been doing in manager mode?

Such shitty unrealistic signings. Fack ooooooorf.
Oh, errrrm yeah, you don't HAVE to go if someone like Arsenal offers you the job. It's a game.
I mean it's because I want to, dude. and what's unrealistic about Ramsey going on loan, a young lad named Maicon joining Roma, Coloccini leaving newcastle and such? Better than PES where you find Messi in Inter after a couple of seasons.

Agbonlahor? Milner? Baines?
Agbonlahor is too good for Aston Villa, Milner was disappointing till this season for City and Baines could definitely leave Everton. It's not like I bought Wilshere or Iniesta or Casillas.
I've gone for the Player Manager option, in order to help my VP's growth. I chose Aalborg BK (AaB), which is the Danish league, primarliy for my VP's benefit - he's the best player in the leage, by some distance. I'm half-way through my third season.
- I came second in the first season, but won the cup;
- Won the league in the second season, reached the semi-finals of the Champions League and I think the quarters of the domestic cup;
- So far in my third season, I'm well ahead in the league, but got knocked out in the group stages of the Champions League, despite winning my first three matches. I lost the next two matches (against Juventus and Villarreal) and I had to at least draw my final match against Man City, in Manchester. I lost 3-1 and finished third in the group. I beat Tottenham in my first Europa League game and I think I have Bayern Munich next (not sure).
You don't earn a lot of prize money in the Danish league, so the Champions League was very important for my transfer budget.
I'm post my squad later. I haven't got a clue who they are, since I can't really atract names. The only player I'm familiar with is Brocchi, but he's over 35.
I've gone to Arsenal btw and i'm halfway through the third season and I have a pretty amazing team. They had sold Wilshere and Szczesny though so I was bummed about that but they had bought Wilshere.
Miyaichi-73(reached 99 acc and sprint speed)
Rich investors bought Blackburn and Sunderland and blackburn got mata, bale, van der vaart, dzeko, gignac and more while Sunderland the more recent ones have gotten Menez, Lavezzi and a couple of others.
Man Utd have Ibra and Higuain as well as Gourcuff so I can never beat them, but when I sim their matches I sometimes get a draw. They've beaten me in the cup final and the community shield.
Speaking of which:
Roma(2011-2012) Serie A + Coppa Nazionale
Arsenal(2012-2013) Barclays Premier League + FA Cup Finalists + Europa League Round of 32(sim'd and lost)
Arsenal(2013-2014) 1st in the league, out of the carling cup and still in the FA Cup. Top of my group in the Champions league.
Bojan was my top scorer and Totti was my assist leader at Roma, and at Arsenal in my first season there Gervinho and Van Persie were tied for goalscorers while Silva was assist leader. Third season so far it's Van Persie as goalscorer while Silva and Cesc competing for assist leader. Silva has been fantastic for me and has gotten a 68m offer from Barcelona. Refused to sell him though as it would mean selling my absolute best player.
Won the league and Champions League double. Bought a sub RB named Brayford. Now starting transfer window.
PES 2012 has a low motion capture which makes the game rough and stuttery which is why I play it now on 480p as anything higher than that will make the game stuttery and jagged
Im playing as PSG and my team is so amazing!!
