  1. Surely Walker in the back three? He's played there a few times under Southgate. I reckon we'll go: Pickford, Trippier, Walker, Stones, Maguire, Shaw, Rice, Phillips, Foden, Kane, Sterling.
  2. Thanks for your recent recommendation from PC Specialist - it runs like a dream. Could you please suggest a laptop for a relative? Budget of around £500. It'll be used for general web browsing and some basic graphic design (cards, crafty stuff, etc).
  3. If we finish 2nd don't we avoid France/Portugal/Germany in the next round? I don't like Southgate but maybe he has a plan. We didn't look interested in winning that one today.
  4. The service to him has been awful to be fair.
  5. If Maguire isn’t fit, do we think Walker would play alongside Stones in a back four?
  6. If Maguire isn’t fit it’s concerning. Mings and Coady don’t fill me with confidence.
  7. Thanks. The original Dell one has come back in stock, but I'm likely to order the PC Specialist one today. Is it worth upping the cooler?
  8. How does this compare for £1,000 ish: https://www.dell.com/en-uk/shop/gaming-and-games/new-g5-gaming-desktop/spd/g-series-5000-desktop/cd500005 My discount is only around 10% now, and the one mentioned yesterday has sold out completely.
  9. Is there much value in Dell gaming desktops? I can get this for around £1,050: https://www.dell.com/en-uk/shop/gaming-and-games/new-g5-gaming-desktop/spd/g-series-5000-desktop/cd500015 I’ll mainly be playing FM, but also FIFA if it’s capable, and some other simulation games (Planet Coaster etc).
  10. If I was looking to buy a desktop for around £800, for playing FM mainly, and potentially some FIFA. Would I be better off building one via PCSpecialist, etc?
  11. Is this any better? https://www.amazon.co.uk/Fierce-MR-X-Gaming-PC-Compatible/dp/B07DLB4TPK?th=1 Looks to be the same processer & graphics card as the £700 one above, but with 16GB RAM.
  12. Are desktops generally better value than laptops? I've had a Asus ZX553VD-DM997T (recommended by Smurf back in July 2018) which has served me pretty well. Since then I've started working from home, and ended up with a monitor for my work laptop, and due to COVID elongating homeworking, I've bought a desk and a second monitor (for my work laptop). My personal laptop doesn't work on two monitors and is probably quite outdated now. Could I pick up a good spec desktop for around £700? Generally just used for FM and internet usage, YouTube, etc..
  13. Thanks for pointing this out. @Dean Gripton any thoughts on this? I've just checked and the global ban is set until 2022, he is eligible to sign (which I suppose is fine) but he is also eligible to play competitive games in England, in my test.
  14. Well, I didn't do it on purpose, I gave it my best shot, but we stayed down. Lost 1-0 against Watford, so QPR pipped us to 2nd place on the final day. We comfortably beat Forest over two legs (4-1) to get to the play-off final. The final didn't go as well - we took the lead and then threw it away in extra-time. Every cloud has a sliver lining, an all that..
  15. Is it acceptable to intentionally bottle promotion? I'm currently managing Preston, took over midway through the first season after starting unemployed. We're now into the second season and the league looks like the below image, surprisingly. Loanees Rhian Brewster and Morgan Gibbs-White aside, we're not ready for the top flight, at all.
  16. Excellent - thanks for that. Will it revert to four relegation spots in League One?
  17. Does anybody have advanced rules, for England, that mirror what is in the game? I want to put 24 teams in League One, without going through all the advanced rules.
  18. Not quite sure how I managed it, but the second half of the season we were fantastic - managed a few good home wins against Liverpool and Man Utd, and even a win that resulted in Guardiola getting the sack at City. Probably going to struggle to keep hold of my star player. I turned down a bid of £35m from PSG last summer, but this season he's managed 12 goals and 14 assists in the league. Not bad for a £1.1m signing from Lech. The board have announced plans for a new stadium. They had originally planned on extending (by a measly 1,000 seats) but have seemingly changed their mind. I've requested the training & youth facilities to be upgraded every year, but somehow they're still only deemed 'average' A very positive looking set of figures to play with next season. I had a negative net spend this season of £25M, so I'll be throwing some cash around during the summer, and hopefully establish in the Premier League.
  19. Things you love to see: We're doing better than I thought we would be so far. We're making the most of games against teams around us in the league, but as always in FM, I seem to end up with a three game run of fixtures against the big sides, and the inevitable drop in morale follows. I've around £20M of my budget remaining (net spend so far around minus £20M) and a decent amount of wages now, thanks to the above.
