How are those who have the game getting on with Shrewsbury? In my first season i cam 14th. Then managed to sign Mcsporran, Ebanks blake (young man u striker) and get foley sheridan on loan and we went up as play off winners. A luke Rodgers hatrick in the final . Then in Division Three I managed to get Paul Evans back at the club and came 7th losing to Plymouth in the play off semi finals. And in my current season lost to Carliar in the league cup, into thrid round of 1/4 finals of LDV and im third in the league. Has anybody got us into the premiership yet? How many season did it take?

after years of being cr@p at champ man i got town promoted 3 times in 3 years. The main man is Fitzpatric who is a class striker (strange)
the way to sucseed as town manager - get 4 long term loans in sell rodgers, Cramb and all the youth and reserves (not danny march, glenn tolley and packer the only good youth player) this was you can stop going into debt early and have some cash for playersin the second season
Most important get 2 new center back as are current crop have been crimnally understated on the new game.
Bet moment in my game so far second div play off final verses Argyel in Cardiff. 91st min Danny March (CENTER BACK) in his only game all season (asfter a busted leg) comes on and scores the winner from a coner by fitzpatric. - the stuff dreams are made of!!!!

pilch, sign oskarsson and play him behind the front two

To get the likes of Zidane, and Beckham playing for a club, all you do iis click on "Start" then follow the cursor up to "CM 03/04" and select the 1st option on the right: "CM 03/04 Editor A large grey box, with several icons should appear saying "Players" "Clubs" " directors" etc, then you select the club you want and steal top players like Keane, and Lee Mills (;D), got Rui Costa playing for Northwich last night ;D No really i did.....
I understand that this is what people call Cheating..... But paying Lee Mills £3,000 a week in real life is cheating as well , long live Money-waster Sandie Shaw!

Missed out in the play-offs in my first season but since I then I've been promoted twice in two season as Champions! ;D Second Division here I come!
Andy Holt is absolutle quality on this game, his long throws are stupendious! I tend to get a lot of the young lads in (oooh eerr ) so I've got two ex-utd players - Lee Sims and Adrian Nevins who are both very solid at the back and ex liverpool lads- Graeme Port and Karl Noon, The latter stats arn't great but averages more than a goal a game!
Lost in the play-off final in my first season. Halifax won the league by a mile and Chester beat me 1-0 with a penalty in the final. You have no money at the Shrews so signing anyone is a no-go. But the youngsters are great. Glenn Tolley a rock in central midfield, Jamie just behind him, Karl Murray a great right winger with Mark Thompson from the under-19s pushing him all the way at the start of the second season.
You must give Robert Egginton a chance up front too. He hit 21 goals for me in 27 starts in the first season and he's only just turned 17.
I'm four games into season two and I've won the first twoo but then followed up with a draw and a defeat.
Well, I bought into this today, and I guess it might be an advantage to play footy manager sims more often. I've struggled to sell players (Still 5k a week over wage budget), and after beating Barnet and Exeter, got hammered by Woking and Farnboro'. 8th in the table on 6 points, and at the top, with 4 wins in 4 games are.... Northwich Vics! ;D
Super Sam's doing the business on the left, even Rioch is giving (1)10%, but Tinno has a nasty habit of seeing red at the moment.... perhaps that double helping of X-country on Wednesdays is bugging him....!
Sam put us 2 up against the Villa in 25 minutes pre-season, only to have it repaid with interest - 5-2. Ouch. Luke can't find the net, Cramb's the only regular scorer, and like Hell am I selling JT to Wolves for 18k!!!
