As an avid fan of championship manager from the 97 version right up to cm3 (not bought cm4 yet)..I have taken to playing Total club manager 2003 which has the same effect of keeping me on my machine till all sorts of ungodly hours!!
Since purchasing tcm..i find it a much better game then championship manager...what do you think?

I've just bought TCM for the playstation 2 - it's seems so slow!

Before you tell me that it's quicker on the pc - I know.

However, as it is interactive with FIFA 2004 (via football fusion) - I had to buy the ps2 version!

I only play my games on consoles - pc's are for work (CM being the exception) and downloading!

Still - TCM seems quite good - it's just a shame that you can't manage conference teams in it.

It is TCM 2004.

Sometimes features vary slightly between formats. I prefer my footie games on console & management games on pc.

Football fusion feature meant it had to be one or the other - as playing matches was more important to me I opted for the ps2 version.

I'll just have to wait for Gravesend to make it to division 3 (unless I have missed the possibilty in the ps2 version - still haven't checked!)

Checked last night - no conference management on ps2 version.

Back to saved West Ham game - I am the dirtiest team in division 1 so maybe your mate is right about the 3d match problem! Currently 10th with 7 matches left - rather bizarre but I am only 4 points behind 2nd place and 6 behind the leaders - everybody is beating everybody and those red cards have cost me big time!

It's not funny - indeed, Defoe is one dirty little sod!

I think that I must be pushing the wrong button when telling the players to tackle - I think the one that responds with the words 'get stuck in' isn't always the best one to push!

OK..found out that the sendings off only occur on the ps2 version in the 3d games and not on the pc version, providing you download the patch!..so looks like i will get it afterall!!..watch this space!

Nearly picked up TCM the other day, but after reading some reviews of it on amazon decided against it. Picked up the latest CM (03/04) also the other day and found it to be not much different from CM4 at all.

Is TCM actually worth having then and PS2 or PC?

Might have to get it from Game or somewhere like that so if I don't like it I can exchange it.
