Installing, running, playing. Currently in my 2nd season now.
The only crash I've experienced is after rejecting suggestions of feeder clubs, oddly enough.
What does not
I've not had any real problems, however see "Not tested"
What was not tested
Since I'm so old school, I always disable 2D/3D match view. Only commentary FTW! This is also down to my laptop being build for battery time, not processing power.. An Acer Aspire 3810T.
I've also not tested any form of multiplayer, adding/removing managers in-game or anything like that.
The game installs, runs and works just fine with stock version of Wine from Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal repo. No extra hacks or workarounds other than non-steam install and No-CD crack. However, the game is very slow. This computer has a weak CPU, but the game is quite laggy all the time, not only when the CPU is at work. I often have to click a button two or three times, or press and hold for a second before the button reacts. I do not know if this is down to the built-in version of dx9, if it's java-related or anything else. If somebody has a suggestion as to what would improve game speed I'd greatly appreciate it! My rating would be a blend of bronze and silver if possible, but I'll give it silver since it runs flawlessly except for speed.

From personal testing and user's in the threads the following workarounds work for fm2011.
At the most you will need these to get fm2011 working.
Warning for some users
It seems that mostly Nvidia users are affected by this and in a variety of a distro's; basically if you run fm2011 and it doesn't come up straight away and your last msg involves the "cannot change backbuffer count yet "
A user suggested downloading a program called "stress" and running;
stress --cpu $(number of cores you have)
This seems to help the game load quicker, it doesn't work everytime. Alternatively you can wait (faster the computer, the longer it takes from testing). I also found running another direct3d game in a window elsewhere also helped (for me it was an EVE Online client)
Another warning, starting a new game from within a game (as in not from main menu) seems to result in the game hanging, it's as if it's restarting it's 3d engine which triggers the problem above. You would need to quit and start from main menu if it dies.
All credit to everyone involved.
