  1. He's declined a little with me by Christmas season 2. He's also picked up three long term injuries in since the start of the first season so hasn't really had a proper run of games. He's coming back now and tends to hit a hat-trick and then has a couple of quiet games. I'm currently using two up top and using Giroud as a Target man and rotating Sanchez with Moussa Dembele in the 'little man' poacher / AF role. Edit: Current update on my game. Renato Sanchez was transfer listed by Bayern so I've managed to snap him up to £25M in the Jan window. Looks like Elneny will be leaving. I'm also considering selling both Ox and Walcott as neither are getting games. I've retrained Iwobi as an AM centre and he's lighting up the league. Him and Ozil will rotate there and Cazorla will be released in the summer along with BFG
  2. Has anybody used Dembele from Celtic? I signed him for £10M after Lucas went to Juventus for £33M and he's done okay so far. I'm just wondering how well he develops.
  3. Oh, and this just happened, to win the league at the Emirates.
  4. I'm using a tactic with no wingers at the moment. Mesut and Cazorla are both out for a long time and I'm using the Ox and he's done pretty well. Do you think he could develop into a natural successor for Ozil and Cazorla at AMC?
  5. I just picked this game up and have just reached Jan in season 1. Things are going fairly well thus far, I'm second in the league (with patchy away form - a lot of draws happening) and through to CL knockout stages. So far I've signed Luke Shaw (Transfer listed £20M in september) and sold off Monreal to China. Sold Gabriel for £18M to China too. I signed Dembele from Celtic for £9M but loaned him back for the rest of the season as I figured he wouldn't start this Sanchez, Giroud, Theo and Lucas all capable of playing up top. It's a shame really as Giroud started the season on fire and then went 19 hours without scoring a goal. Lucas has done well and scored 10 league goals so far and Ozil has chipped in with a few. Iwobi started slowly but over Christmas put in a string of terrific performances which earned him a new deal. I kept Cazorla and BFG on for another two years to add some experience to the youngsters I'm signing such as Dayot. I'm going to try and keep the squad together as much as I can and spend as little as possible on new signings unless a really great deal comes along like Shaw who will be my left back for the next 10 years unless he throws a paddy. Oh and Sanchez got injured in September for 4 months which has sucked.
  6. Thanks for this, having a fun little save with Reading. I'm building a side with a lot of British youth. Spent £120M in the first season
  7. I managed to bring in Falcao for £28M in January (transfer listed) and he's been banging them in. Had to break the wage structure though.
  8. So the season is finally underway, can we get off to a good start? August / September update. [Premier League 20/08/12] Arsenal 1 - 1 West Ham. Ramsey 88 - Nolan 90 Wasn't the best of games, few chances and sloppy. We took the lead in the 88th minute through Ramsey, and thought we have snatched the winner. West Ham came back at us and Nolan smashed in Jarvis' cross on the volley. Probably a fair result [Premier League 25/08/12] Norwich 0 - 4 Arsenal. Arteta (pen) 29, Walcott 52,81, Ramsey 66 We got off to a slow start but imposed ourselves more as the game went on. Turner bought down Theo in the box on the half hour mark, then Arteta slammed home the penalty. After the break we put Norwich under real pressure and they cracked when Theo stormed into the box from the right and curled around Ruddy. Ramsey stole in to poke home just after the hour mark and Theo finished the rout on the break. Easy. [Premier League 01/09/12] Arsenal 3-0 Manchester City. Ramsey 7, Diaby 38, Mertesacker 86 The score flatters us here as City had the better of the play and more chances, but we finished ours. Our first came from a City corner, we broke with Theo who layed it off for Ramsey to crash home - his third in three games. Diaby dispossed Toure on the edge of the box before slamming home before half time. During the second half City piled on the pressure but we held firm, and Mertesacker got our third from a corner. Big win. [Premier League 15/09/12] Aston Villa 0 - 4 Arsenal Giroud 4, 47, Tomkins 53, Gnabry 90+2 Villa didn't turn up. We dominated from start to finish. Giroud scored his first two league goals with some powerful play, and Tomkins stabbed home on his Arsenal debut. Moment of the day was when second half substitute and debutante Gnabry ran past 2 players before beating Guzan. [Champions League Group Stage H 19/09/12] Borussia Dortmund 0 -2 Arsenal Olivier Giroud 71, Alex Oxlade Chamberlain 81 This was a really tough game, but we managed to get the better of it. Dortmund started brightly with Gotze going close and Lewandowski hitting the bar before the break. We played better during the second half but Theo was having no joy up front. On come Giroud on the hour mark and within 10 minutes he muscles past Hummels to stab home Cazorla's cross. Chamberlain sealed the win 9 minutes from time with a fabulous curling effort from the edge of the box. [Premier League 23/09/12] Arsenal 1-0 Liverpool Ramsey 76 A scrappy game after a tiring midweek game with Dortmund. Liverpool had the better of it for most of the game, but Ramsey headed home after 76 minutes to seal the win. [Capital One Cup - Third round 26/09/12] Arsenal P0-0 Liverpool I rotated the time big time here, with only Ramsey staying in the side from the previous meeting with Liverpool 3 days earlier. Our young guns controlled the game for the most part against an experienced Liverpool side. Suarez came close just after half time but chances were far between. It went to penalties where the kids held their nerve to win 3-0. [Premier League 29/09/12] Swansea 0-1 Arsenal Manuel Fernandes 40 Fresh after a short break the first time all came back into the fold. It was a rather drab affair on a rainy day in Swansea. The Swans controlled possession without but we were dangerous on the break and just before half time Fernandes stole in at the near post to direct his diving header past Vorm. The second half went much the same way as the first but Swansea couldn't break through. Overall, it's been a good 6 weeks. We're unbeaten, and haven't conceded since the opening day draw with West Ham. The only downside for me has been our CL group draw - Dortmund, Juventus and Olympiakos. It's a tough group for us. Ramseys goals have been a nice surprise and Fernandes has settled in well. We're also negotiating a £240K deal with a highly rated Brazilian youngster.
  9. I've had this game since release, and I've yet to start and Arsenal save. Shocking, I know. Anyway I've just finished pre-season 2012/2013 and here's how it went.. Transfers in: Ruben Duarte - £2.3M from Espanyol James Tomkins - £4.5M from West Ham Manuel Fernandes - £16M from Besiktas Ryan Gauld - £525K from Dundee I wanted a holding player who wouldn't cost the earth, my first choice Radja Nainggolan was injured so he wasn't available, so I went after Manuel Fernandes who should suffice. He came in for £16M + add ons which could total £19M. I bought Tomkins in has he's been good in the past for me, he's homegrown and fairly young. Duarte is a young centre back with a lot of promise for the future. Transfers out: Craig Eastmond - Bristol City (loan) Sebastian Squillaci - Fulham £900K Josh Rees - Aldershot (loan) Ruben Duarte - Preston (loan) Nico Yennaris - Doncaster (loan) Kyle Ebeclilio - Walsall (loan) Isaac Hayden - Luton (loan) Hector Bellerin - Torquay (loan) Martin Angha - Torquay (loan) Conor Henderson - Bradford (loan) Ryan Guald - Sheffield United (loan) Pre Season Friendlies: Toronto FC 0-5 Arsenal (Cazorla 8, Arteta P15,18, Giroud 35,47) - We absolutely dominated them, limiting them to one long range effort all game. Arteta ran the show, scored a screamer and tucked away a penalty too. Giroud did well up front on his own and dominated in the air. Cazorla tucked home from close range after so neat build up play. Bohemians 1905 0-5 Arsenal (Diaby 20, Arteta 23, Vermaelen 30, Giroud 42, Walcott 64) - Another belter and another game where Arteta was man of the match. A stunning display and another goal. Diaby also had a magnificent game. Giroud again did well up top and Theo came on to bag a late goal. Stade Rennais FC 1-5 Arsenal (Montano 83 - Arteta 25, Koscielny 37, Walcott 43,69, Podolski 76) - Disappointed we didn't keep a clean sheet but another five goals against decent opposition is pleasing. I moved Walcott a bit deeper and had him run at the opposition whilst Giroud held up the play and it worked out well, Theo had them running scared all afternoon. Arteta once more impressive and Podolski came off the bench to file home. Montreal Impact 2-4 Arsenal ( Romero 18, Wagenaar 56 - Giroud 3,43, Mertesacker 81, 89) - We didn't play as well as we could have here, we took an early lead through Giroud but Montreal soon hit back thanks to sloppy play in midfield. Giroud put us ahead again just before the break but again Montreal hit back. It was a scrappy game but Mertesacker scored from a free kick on 81 and sealed the win from a corner on 89. Arsenal 2-2 Roma (Podolski 40, Coquelin 58 - Pjanic 53, Totti 77) -We just couldn't finish them off, we had a lot of chances but couldn't find the net. We went into the lead just before the break thanks to a quick break and a curling effort from Podolski. Pjanic who was majestic all game waltzed through our defence to slide past Chesney. Coquelin put us back infront from the edge of the box but Totti put Roma back level with a fine finish late on. Fernandes also made his debut here. Overall I'm quite happy, but we have some areas we can improve in.
  10. I took Forest Green into League One, but St Mirren approached me before the new season in L1 started. I took it
  11. I hated this on my old PC, ran so slow, 3D was awful. Now with the new one I can run a tonne of leagues, quickly and with nice graphics. Really enjoying it now.
  12. Do you play anything else? The second looks more future proof.
  13. To get the best out of games graphically you will need a dedicated graphics card.
  14. Good. I thought it would but wanted another opinion. I'm running a dual core now with a terrible GPU. FM does not like this.
