  1. If it is anything like the samsung galaxy book, then yes as long as you have all the 3d stuff set to low. It is very playable on my One.
  2. I started a new save (still got old one) as an unemployed manager, no badges and Sunday league footballer. I went on holiday to november and started looking for jobs. I got the Alfreton Town job in Vanarama North who were 3rd bottom. Steered them to the playoffs and got promoted. 2nd season, was sitting 2nd in VNL when Exeter in League 2 came calling in the January. Took the job with them sitting in 18th, now in the playoff spot, only an amaing 4 points offf the top, there is still time...
  3. Some really good suggestions there guys thank you. Going for the champions league, so if I win that, I have club world cup to go for. I may even try international management.
  4. Hi guys, I'm currently at Christmas in the 25/26 season. I started my save off as manager of the mighty Dunfermline Athletic. I guided them to the SPFL Premier league, then went on to win 4 league titles, 2 scottish cups and 2 league cups before Man Utd came calling. Obviously this was too good to turn down. I got a massive war chest of £300 million to spend so was in my element. However, first season I went on to win league, Europa league and FA cup. So far in my 2nd season, community shield and UEFA super cup. Currently top Xmas day 6 points clear and still winning. So my question is, when does winning everything become boring? Do you start a new save or retire your manager and add a new one? I'm interested to hear your thoughts. (Btw, this is my save from the beta)
  5. Most of the time it works, on the very rare occasion, they ask to leave and I let them. I dont give in to player power lol
  6. I always tell them "there is plenty time remaining, so there will be no contract offer". Always seems to work for me.
  7. 13th July 2024 FOX SPORTS NEWS HQ BREAKING NEWS After weeks of speculation, 41 year old Scottish manager Chris O'Connor has been named the new manager at Manchester United on a 3 year deal. O'Connor will be joined by assistant manager Mikel Arteta and several other members of his Dunfermline coaching staff. Sources close to Man United have said that O'Connor will more than treble his wages and will be handed an impressive war chest to help re-build the United squad. O'Connor will certainly have inherited a talented squad with the likes of De Gea, Pogba and Icardi amoungst others. However it is no seceret that these players are ageing and that O'Connor prefers to work with younger players. So will we see the likes of Dybala, Lindeloff and Savic leave Old Trafford before the end of the transfer window? It is certainly going to be an interesting few weeks. Ironically, O'Connors first match in charge of United will be a pre-season friendly against former club Dunfermline at East End Park on the 20th July. Sources at Dunfermline have said the match is already a sell out with over 13,000 tickets sold.
  8. 8th July 2024 STV News: Although not considered a big pre-season game, Dunfermline ran out amazing 7 nil winners against Peterhead at the Balmoor stadium. A hattrick For Ben Woodburn, 2 from Francisco Sala and 2 for John Adamson wrapped up the game in the first 45 minutes. The pars changed the entire squad for the second half and looks as if they treated it like a training match. However, the big talking point was manager Chris O'Connor's refusal to talk to any member of the media fuelling the fire that he is set to take over as Manchester United boss. O'Connor's trusty assistant, Mikel Arteta, also refusd to speak to the media. Rumours have been coming in from fans all over the country. One tweeter, who wishes to remain anominous, says he was helping Chris and his family buy a house in the Cheshire area. Jim Stevenson from Rosyth tweeted "Aye saw Chris in ma local. He says he is no interested. He wants to build a legacy at the Pars, even tho he already has, COME ON YE PARS" O'Connor is certainly no stranger to the North West. He has family from his fathers side living in Darwin, Blackburn. No doubt should he take over as United boss, he will fall foul of his family. One thing is for sure, until United appoint a new manager, speculation around O'Connor will continue.
  9. 2nd July, 2024 DUNFERMLINE PRESS: MANAGER WATCH Despite taking charge of Pre-season training, rumours continue to fly about the possible departure of Manager Chris O'Connor to Manchester United. Its now been a month since Jose Mourinio was sacked, then sensationally re-hired as director of football. Various big names have been seen in and around the Manchester area over recent weeks, but still no announcement on who will take charge. Chris O'Connor has continued to strengthen the Dunfermline squad and all eyes will be on the Pre-season match at East End Park on the 22nd. Will O'Connor be walking out his Pars side, or will it be the red devils?
  10. 23rd June 2024 Dunfermline Press: At the annual Player awards, held in the Glen Pavilions, Dunfermline Athletic players, staff and fans gathered to recognise all the effort the team put in the following season. An amazing achievement to finish unbeaten all season, a stat that goes back to the following season. The guest of honour was none other that Athletic icon, and many consider legend, Sir Alex Ferguson. The Pars chairman also revealed plans are in place to add a further 4,555 seats to the 13,955 seater stadium as well as upgrading the clubs training and youth facilities. Pars boss Chris O'Connor praised the board for their visions for the future of the club, along with sanctioning the signing of several players, who will be an asset to the club for years to come. Former Manchester United right back Lee O'Connor (of no relation to Chris) has signed a permanent deal after spending last season on loan. When asked about the speculation linking him with Man United, Chris replied: " obviously, it is an honour to be linked with Man United job, they are a pretty big club with a lot of history. However, im not going to say anything just now other than there has been no contact with them. Plus, being a Spurs fan, I doubt they will be in contact." Rumour has it, Sir Alex was actually up to conduct an interview and try to convince Chris to move to United.
  11. It appears the O'Connor story wont go away. Former Man Utd manager, the legendary Sir Alex Ferguson has backed O'Connor to take the vacant United hot seat. Sir Alex, who made 89 appearances scoring 66 goals for Dunfermline, has said O'Connor has the right mentality to succeed at Man United and hopes he will be considered. Chris O'Connor has done some really good work at Dunfermline since being hired in June 2018 at the young age of 35. He went on the win the Scottish championship first season bringing unexpected promotion. Over the next 5 years, O'Connor delivered 4 Scottish Premier league titles, 1 Scottish cup and 2 League cups. He helped boost Scotland's European co-effients with some remarkable performances in Europe, even reaching the final of the Europa League in 2022, only to be beaten by Inter Milan. O'Connor has gone about his work quietly since hanging up his boots. He played his entire career at Dunfermline making 634 League appearances and scoring 128 goals. O'Connor never got a call up to Scotland, but his impressive work as manager, splitting the Old Firm and stopping Celtic's domination, has to add some weight. It is also rumoured Mourinio is a keen admirer of O'Connor, so we shall see what happens.
  12. 4th June 2024, Fox Sports news HQ Breaking news: in a surprise twist, Manchester United have Re-hired Jose Mourinio. It is believed Mourinio has taken up the role of director of football with immediate affect. Mourinio' s first task to to identify the new manager for the club. Speculation about who will be the club's new manager is rife. It is understood Mourinio would prefer a foreign manager with champions league experience. Meanwhile Hibs manager Derek McInnes has thrown his hat into the ring for the job saying "anywan can dae a guid job there, so why can't I?"
  13. "Ladies and gentlemen, thank you for attending. It is with deep regret that Manchester United have parted company with manager Jose Morhinio. As you are aware, recent results have simply not been good enough, and following our recent Champions League defeat, the board felt it was time for a change. The board have already identified a list of managers we wish to speak to, but we will not be commenting any further. We would like to wish Jose all the very best for the future and thank him for all he has done. There will be no questions today, thank you, and have a good day." And just like that, the chairman was gone. Speculation was already rife, Zidane, Conte, even Eddie Howe's name was being floated about. The fans have their own views though, they want a British manager, someone who could do what Sir Alex did. It seems it could be Eddie's time...
  14. Its the 2nd June 2024. Its a miserable summers morning when the Manchester United PR office calls for a press conference. Its not even been 24 hours since United were narrowly defeated 2-1 in the Champions league final by fierce rivals Liverpool. Pressure has been growing on boss Mourinho for a few weeks now. Having been appointed in 2016, he has won only 1 Premier League trophy, 1 europa league, 1 FA cup and 3 League cups. Some say this is unacceptable for a team as big as united. The doors open, and out walks the Man Utd chairman followed by his closest aide, but no Mourinho...
  15. Nice one mate, I will certainly be keeping my eye on this one. I was looking at starting a save in League 2 with either Cowdenbeath (local side) or Edinburgh. However, still really into my first save as Dunfermline, so may be a while away yet lol. Good luck.
