First off, this game is understandably not up to date with the latest tranfers, which considering it was already in post production by August, it's not really suprising. On the other hand, if you do want it up to date, then there is a link aparently that if your on-line, can allow you to download the updated list. I'm not sure if it will work for the January tranfer list though.
As for the game, well, the bugs are radicated...woohoooo! player increase in money and skill, and they seem to peak aroung 30 years of age, great!
Buying players is now back to normal, so it's easier to do so. It's a bit frustrating that the other teams keep selling their players, then but them back again a season later, but maybe it's a way for the players to increase for the other teams, I don't know, a bit confusing, but AIs' for you.
On a sad note, yes there is a slight problem with the end of the first season(at present I'm in my second, so not sure if it contiues), it does crash a lot. but I found the best cure is to save it every week, until the end of the season, that way you don't lose too much gameplay. When you get to the end of season it's fine, but it's a pity for that slight glitch.
Overall the game is brilliant, it's in the same style as 06 for the game watching, slightly smoother I feel, but otherwise, still the same. Also the practice matches ARE useful in this version, they DO make a difference! It keeps your players fit and they are not so lathargic if you get a couple of weeks between games. Trust me when I say I have suffered badly for taking it off, losing to Middleborough 4-0 is not funny when you beat the likes of Chelsea and Man Utd.
I have to admit, this is by far the best version so far.... Bring on 08, I can't wait for the improved version!
