  1. Fair point- I'm looking for a light/small (13") laptop mainly for ease/convenience when travelling. I have a HP Pavilion Gaming Laptop which is great, but on its last legs, just too big for travelling!
  2. I'm looking at buying a Mac at the moment and tossing up between an Air and a Pro. Given FM takes a lot of my time, I'm keen to make sure the game runs at a reasonable rate. I'm thinking I may have to drop to the 2D engine on an Air? Any thoughts appreciated 1.6GHz dual‑core eighth‑generation Intel Core i5 processor Turbo Boost up to 3.6GHz 8GB of 2133MHz LPDDR3 memory 256GB of SSD storage¹ Intel UHD Graphics 617
  3. Looking to get a new Laptop to replace my HP Pavilion 17" Gaming Laptop. I'm looking for something smaller/compact as I'l be travelling a lot for work soon (including flights). I've got quite attached to the Macbook Pro I had from work, so considering this: https://www.apple.com/au/shop/buy-mac/macbook-pro/13-inch-space-grey-256gb-2.4ghz-quad-core-processor-turbo-boost-up-to-4.1ghz# What's everyones opinion of FM on a Macbook? Does anyone play FM on a smaller (13") laptop? Appreciate all the previous advice on this thread!
  4. Hello all, Firstly, thank you to everyone who contributes to this site- as a long time (97/98) but fairly unsuccessful CM/FM player, this site has been a great source of advice and inspiration! I am currently in Season 3 of my Lyon save, having finished 3rd in the previous two seasons, behind PSG and Monaco. I've managed to keep the big players- Depay/Fekir but sold Dembele this summer as he wasn't happy we didn't win the league. I also bought and sold (unfortunately). My problem seems to be converting possession and chances into wins. As in the screenshots attached, I draw a fair amount of games 0-0, despite dominating possession and creating lots of chances. It's only early days in Season 3 but I thought I'd ask the question before I get too much more involved and also before the transfer window closes. Am I missing something obvious? It seems to be home and away, although when I played a much more counter attacking style against PSG I won 1-0, although arguably undeservedly. I feel I have good players in the right positions, with the potential for goals but it's falling apart somewhere. Thanks again and apologies if I've missed something straight forward.
  5. Does anyone play using a smaller laptop? I’d like a new one (13-14” screen) but the gaming laptops at this size are limited. Be good to know if anyone has any recommendations for smaller gaming laptops- maybe in the £700 range?
  6. What has everyone done with backroom staff at Lyon? Overhaul or relatively the same? I’m always keen on Assistant Manager recommendations- I tend to use (need!) mine to have skills in Training and Tactics.
  7. How’ve you all managed with signing either Jovic or Pellegri? I managed to get Pellegri on loan once for Newcastle, second season I think, but not a prayer of a perm deal!
  8. Midway through season 2 after finishing 10th last season- currently bouncing between 7th and 11th- it's very tight, with the Top 6 pulling away. Current issue seems to be killing off games and the majority of goals come from Corner/Free Kick routines, although Pellegri has started to grab some goals since coming in on loan. Who has everyone signed as Strikers for Season 2 onwards? I've been unable to convince Dolberg, Batshuyai to come despite having bids accepted. I have 25m to spend this window if i need it- or do I wait for summer? Current team: GK: Dubravka RB: Yedlin/Manquillo CB: Lascelles/Souttar CB: Smalling/Chambers LB: Moreno CM: Shelvey CM: Diame/Hayden/Longstaff RW: Ritchie LW: Shaqiri ST: Arp/Muto ST: Pellegri (Loan) Any help appreciated
  9. How has everyone been setting up their team? I’ve been really struggling- just about avoiding relegation in the first season and heading that way in the second, despite some reinforcements. I struggle to control the game, possession is rarely in my favour and quite often get dominated in the Shots department too...!
  10. Hello all, A bit of advice needed please Just finished Season 2 with Spurs having finished 4th and won the Europa League. Need to try and push on in this next season and it's looking like I'll have approx 45m to spend. I think I need a DM and CB- a DM in the Vieira mould, someone physical who can protect the back 4, or should I promote Dier there? I've not managed to get Embolo firing yet and need to think about my keeper situation with Lloris, Rulli and Dragowski- it'll be hard to keep all three happy. So, the question is, with that squad- what would you do? Thank you!
  11. Thanks guys (Smurf in particular) for all of your input and advice to new laptop purchasing. I'm in the market for one too, with the complication being I'm based in Australia! Currently looking at machines such as; HP Pavilion 15-ak006TX 15" HP Spectre 360 Dell Y510995AU XPS Couple of questions- whilst I appreciate it's not a case of 'one or the other' - where should the focus be- CPU/RAM/Hard Drive space or Graphics? I think I usually load approx. 4-6 different nations, large database and like as high graphics as possible. Ideal laptop would be 14", i7, 8GBDDR, 250GB SSD and 1TB HDD, Geforce 920+...I can't seem to find the perfect combo though!
