Would move but can't any more. Will have to wait for Daz or Nick.
As for Kick Off... Sensi all the way :wink:

Off-topic reply/post but does this mean that Nick and Daz are the only two mods left now? Just wondered after seeing nobody else's names next to the moderators thing beneath each sub-forum on the main page.

I believe it was caused by an 'event' on the forum. But yeah, only staff can mod now.

"Event"?

We are in the kick off the thread so I'm guessing it was a petty argument this event :lol:

Safe to say one of the political/religious/cyclist threads went out of control as usual then. Come to think of it, things have been a bit quiet recently as if a few temp bans have been handed out.

I always thought MPM did a decent job. Wonder what happened to cause a change.

As for Kick off, Never really been a fan of the series, only game I ever spent time with was GOAL on the amiga which was done by the same guy wasn't it.

I liked Kick Off, Kick Off II, Player Manager, and Goal. I've played those more than all other football games combined. I liked Sensi, but played Dino's games more.

loved the Kick Off series, spent loads of hours on Kick Off, Player Manager, Kick Off 2, and Goal.

the feature on Player Manager that let you import your teams into KO2 was fantastic. Also remember the extra tactics add on disk - "Winning Tactics" I think it was, if memory serves the tactics/formations included - Wide Boy, Swingers and FortKnox (which was everybody back like a 6-3-0 :D )

Far better than Sensi, the KO games required much practice and skill, so perhaps understandable why the less skilled gamers gravitated towards the Sensi series.
