Okay then, new thread created.
Yes I can see how using the newest games will be useful, would save a lot of work in terms of stats etc. The newest one I've got is FM 2007. I imagine quite a few players' stats will be fairly similar anyway but if I can find a way of getting more up-to-date data then that would be a big help.
Also there's the problem of the League having 92 clubs but CM only has 80 so we'll have to work out which twelve to leave out. I think we'll have to do it quite quickly so we don't end up putting in players that won't be used.
