Ok I'm playing the demo as Watford
I've not sold anyone or bought anyone for a fee.
But beware the 13th September you pay 150K to Birmingham as part of the Sadler deal, which is fine as that was agreed in real life but as in the game you only get 150K as a transfer fund that gets wiped out!

If you scout the players you'll see the stats, only takes a couple of days longer

On some players it does take 2 scouting trips to get all of the stats if you do just report card, if you do the after 2 or 3 matches you get all the stats

Just broke what seems to be a Championship record of 8 straight league wins! :o

This game is fantastic. Really good. The players ratings are spot on, right down to doyleys poor passing.

Bangura and Smith are my strongest players in november, with smith being 5 goals clear at the top of the scoring charts. I'm sitting in the play offs and i'm on a really good run.

The 3d match engine is brilliant, absolutely fantastic. It can only get better as well.

Demerit is very good, and Lee is quite good as well.

I'm really very impressed and cannot wait for release day.

Jay Demerit - Bolton £1.8million

Esajas - Sheff Utd 200k + Clauses
Jeffrey de visscher - Aberdeen (cant remember fee)
Sefoy Soley - Free
Ulises de la Cruz - Free
Stephen Carr - Free
Heidar Helguson - Fulham Loan

It gets released on the 14th officially, though play.com and such do often get the game out early but there is no point this year as you have to verify the game online or by phone or by steam and the verification process doesn't go live till the 14th, which means that if you get it early you can't play it till the 14th!

Hi,

Here's the release SEGA will be putting out this afternoon with regard to activation times and retailer street dates.

Thanks

"SEGA Confirm Football Manager 2009 Activation details

SEGA have today confirmed that activation servers for Football Manager 2009 will be turned on shortly before midnight on Thursday 13th November in time for the release date of Friday November 14th across Europe.

Despite the unprecedented anticipation for Football Manager 2009, SEGA would encourage retailers not to break the Friday 14th November street date so as not to disappoint customers who will be unable to play before the release date.

Buyers of the game can activate with one-time entry of the unique code on the back of the game manual by one of three methods
1. Register with STEAM and input the code during installation. This method has the benefit of automatically patching and updating the game.
2. Activation without additional software installation is available direct with Uniloc.
3. For those without an internet connection a local telephone number will be available and presented within the installer for customers to call and register the code. Where possible this will be a local toll free number.

Once the game is registered through any of these three methods the game will be activated and available to play. No further activations will be required unless the user specifically deactivates the machine it is installed on.

Activation for the Australian market will taken place at 6.00 EDT (Sydney) 14th November.
Markets with later release dates such as the Czech Republic, Poland and Slovakia for Football Manager 2009 and Worldwide Soccer Manager in the USA will have servers turned active for midnight before their respective releases.

About Football Manager 2009

Football Manager™ 2009 is set to feature a vast array of all new features including, for the first time ever, a full 3D view of the world famous Football Manager™ match engine. Football Manager Handheld™ 2009 for Sony PSP is also set for release on the same day and sees the debut of a 2D match engine for the handheld franchise.

Football Manager™ 2009 for PC and Apple Macintosh, and Football Manager Handheld™ 2009 for Sony PSP are both set for release on November 14th.

But anyone will be able to sign him on a pre-contract thingy after Jan 1st, and with 3 clubs chasing him in my game, that was bound to happen so took the best option for me.
