    I've been a casual player of the CM games since the early nauties when I got a copy of 99/00 for Christmas. This is a huge forum with a ton of different sub-sections and I'm not entirely sure where to post so I'll start here and go from there.

    I recently started playing 99/00 again and am currently having my most successful spell as Tottenham manager to date. In my first season, I won the FA Cup and finished 8th and in the second I got to the final of the League Cup and finished 4th. I'm currently in my third season and my team is in freefall at the lower end of the league table and my 20 year old wonderkid (Zlatan Muslimovic) has gone from hitting 25 goals a season to only managing one goal by February. I've been playing 4-5-1 which is the formation I've found to be the most effective.

    I'm posting here in the hope that someone can give me a few pointers to get my team back to winning ways as I don't want to throw all my progress away.

    try new formation or some new signings? where do you seem to be falling down? scoring? keeping clean sheets? etc

    Largely 01/02 chat here but the 99/00 section is here - http://champman0102.co.uk/forumdisplay.php?f=243

    Defensively my team isn't too bad. I have a CB pairing of Sol Campbell and Rio Ferdinand (was lucky enough to get RF for 3.9m on a relegation release clause) and most of my good results have come from defensive tactics (playing behind the ball, man-marking the opposition's best players and hopefully getting a goal or two on the counter). I've only managed to win one game after going behind so scoring goals is definitely the problem.

    I do play 01/02 (retail disc version) and have done for years but there are a few features that keep me going back to 99/00 and it's the first CM game I played so it has that extra nostalgia pull.

    Personally, I like playing with the old databases. I wish we had retro databases so I could manage an early 80s Spurs with Glenn Hoddle and Ossie Ardiles.

    Welcome to the site

    No retro database for 99/00 I'm afraid but there are ones available for 01/02!

    I've managed to revive my team's fortunes with a Pochettino style 4-2-3-1 (modified 4-3-3) and came within a hair's breadth of winning the league (3 more points would have done it). My league form over five seasons with more or less the same group of players reads 8th, 4th, 15th, 12th and 2nd.

    One of the things I've learned from this last season is that you don't need an especially strong team to challenge for the title. Two of my best players wanted to move to bigger clubs and the squad was full of discontented players wanting new contracts after playing half a minute of football. A few bargain buy rookies and cast-offs from other Premier League teams is all you need.
