    I have an external drive. I don't mind sending it to you. Just send it back when you've finished.

    Are you at the JSB party?

    Shall I bring it along to that or do you want me to post it to you first? Either is fine by me. I don't intend using it for a while.

    Bringing it next week will be fine and then I will arrange to post it back to you once it's installed. Thanks again.

    You do get the Steam code with the disc version also, you should be able to install without actually needing the disc if I remember right.

    Got it home, opened the box, and there it was; the steam code. Found how to activate a 'disc' version via steam, and its installing as we speak! Awesome!

    So wont need to take you up on your kind offer Torchy, but appreciate it!

    Still come and say 'Hi' at the party though!

    It's a bit of software so you could edit the database :) the amount of times I sold Kevin Thornton to real Madrid!

    Ha! Steam have already clicked that I support Cov and have offered a bundle where I can write off the debt and have a massive transfer kitty.

    I still play the 2012 version very occasionally. Is it worth buying a newer version?

    Depends how you play the game I reckon, I normally start lower league and build a club up, long career save, so most of the players are regens when I get to the Premier, thats why I play FM07 still.

    I suppose if you like to go straight for the bigger clubs or Cov for example and want instant success with all the players they currently have, go for a newer version.

    The thing I don't like about newer versions is its too complicated, dealing with agents, press conferences etc. and also my PC prolly couldn't cope with the extra stuff! :D

    I wouldn't mind getting hold of an old copy of Championship manager circa 96-97. Get Ian Wright or Ferdinand up top with Ndlovu or Dion, cheeky bid for Zidane. Can't remember if editors were avilable for those versions, yep I use editors...sacrilege maybe but I don't care. Maverick.

    Was thinking this the other day, my mate had CM on his old Amiga and I was absurdly addicted to it. Had Tony Yeboah and Dean Saunders up front and they smashed the life out of any defence. Think I had Zvonmir Boban in midfield, Pessotto in defence and Seaman in goal. Formidable Cov team, it was. :D

    Blinding! Nothing like a bit of nostalgia, plus managing at Highfield Road...bonus. Was gonna edit the stadium on fm15 from Ricoh back to Highfield.

    Yep I remember champ manager 93! We used to play it for about 7 hours between three of us, where you had to switch seats to control your team! None of this internet linking malarkey.

    I can remember when it used to take hours between seasons and playing until about 3am so I could get the next season sorted overnight.

    Just got fm16 tonight as my fm14 had a problem
