  1. excellent. Thanks for your advice. I wanted the smaller device anyway so I'm pleased it is perhaps slightly more powerful :D
  2. I think these laptops are similar but if there is something I've missed please point it out... https://www.dell.com/en-uk/shop/laptops-notebooks-and-2-in-1-laptops/new-inspiron-14-5000/spd/inspiron-14-5490-laptop/cn54904#techspecs_section https://www.very.co.uk/hp-laptop-15s-fq1010na-intel-core-i7-1065g7-16gb-ram-512gb-ssd-156-inch-full-hd-laptop-with-optional-microsoft-365-personal-1-yearnbsp--silver/1600450268.prd I am not as au fait with processors as I used to be, using the link in the OP, the HP seems to be the winner, but the stats seem to indicate the dell is better (...? I could be reading wrong) I am actually leaning towards the dell due to dedicated GFX for a bit of dabbling with games and the smaller overall device with both being around £750 is there anything else on the market similarly spec'd and priced? I can't find too many.
  3. My surface pro has finally given up - the screen is starting to pop out the chassis which apparently indicates battery expansion Whilst I might take it apart and try and rebuild/upgrade it I am probably going to buy a laptop... I'm perfectly happy picking one, but just wondering on the best place to look... seems like the most common like is box?
  4. April 2031 Bit of a death month and we lost all the big games... Including a FA Cup Semi with City on pens Somehow, City have a game in hand so the title is in their hands at the moment, but our victory against West Ham means we are likely in the CL next year Last game of the season is at City, so it could be close!!
  5. We built Harry McNally Park in 2026 and expanded it over the years up to 27k. It's all ours - we did do a season in Wigan whilst we were constructing though, odd!
  6. February and March 2031 Been busy again so lost track of monthly updates We did well in the league in Feb, but a couple of iffy draws in March - we only just caught up with good subs against Villa, then how we lost our lead to Newcastle, who are in the relegation zone, god only knows A couple of good FA Cup results sets up a semi against City, which will be the final as the other side is much easier tbh. We did get knocked out by Munich which was pretty much expected after the loss at home in the 1st leg. We retain our top spot, but some tricky fixtures to go...
  7. Dec 30 to Jan 31 In the league we have ground out a lot of solid results, a couple of draws, but that's ok. We only needed a draw to keep our spot in the CL so that was also fine! 2nd in the league is great, haven't really had too many big fixtures so that'll probably change but still good, also, got a draw against Bayern Munich - tough! In transfer news Agustin De Luca sadly signed a pre-contract deal with Valencia, but I did notice our long term target, Alban Lluca is available for the steal price of £13m - English and 5 star PA, been watching him for a couple of years and I think he will be a good buy.
  8. November 2030 Some tricky fixtures this month, but we picked up points all the way through. The West Ham game was a struggle and we only just managed to win, only leading after the last goal for the last minute! That puts us top of the prem and in the driving seat for our CL group!
  9. July - October 2030 As I mentioned, I have been playing a fair bit offline so a big update at once... Firstly, let's look at those cups... Community Shield. We did our best to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory in this game - we had a 2 goal lead and threw it away then lost on penalties. Shame but good sign that we can keep up with City I guess. Next up was the Euro Super Cup, interesting that Inter won the Champions League but that just means I fancied my chances! I was right to as we made a flying start, although Inter pegged one back, we were pretty much in control the whole game so a new trophy in the cabinet! Hurrah! So, back to the premier league. We are doing really well this year, I dont feel like my team is the best in the world but they work together well as it's been quite steady for a while (which is why I'm really frustrated with the forced WP transfers!) our first loss was to liverpool - despite the score looking close we were nowhere near them so a fair win to them. I was pleased to get revenge against City after losing to them in the CS and just losing to Liverpool - we were much better even though there was 1 goal in it. Beyond that, we seem to be able to win everywhere else in the league now so things are coming together really well. I played the kids in the Milk Cup and contested Man Utd quite well but despite entering in the 3rd round i was quite happy to go out with all these games. As far as Europe is concerned, we got a lesson from Real Madrid, but I was pleased to beat Roma (Although I went into the game thinking if I can beat CL champs Inter, surely I can beat Roma, I also beat Juve last year so this should be ok...) Overall, that puts us 2nd in both our leagues which is just fine at this point...
  10. Transfers 2030 Played quite a bit offline (travelling) so I'll fly through this bit Outs We sold Eusebio Valero for £10mil without any appearances for the club - he couldnt get a permit so he went out on loan last year, the Leverkeusen manager didnt play him as planned so £9.5mil profit for me - still not sure how i got him for £400k but the risk was clearly worthwhile taking and paid off... Zach Dronfield went for £1.2m - after 142 league appearances he was just no longer getting any games so despite being captain, the only sensible option was to ship him out. We also got rid of another player who couldnt get a game, yet for some reason wanted to stick around £2.5m for Jake Rooney after 101 appearances and 4 goals, we broke even so that's good. Now the frustrating transfers Abdoulaye Diaw (20m to PSG) and Ruben Moreau (10m to Fenerbache) - 2 high ticket transfers which is fine but they both had a place in the team so I didnt really want to see them go, but, neither are internationals so either cash in or lose for free next year. Silly WP rules. But that does mean I brought some players in... Michel Miller - 18,5mil - a slight profit on the centre half swap, and 2 goals in 14 so far for this promising young centre half. Seems an improvement on Diaw to be fair. Angelo Valenzuela - 12mil - a slight loss, so overall broke even on brexit enforced transfers. Looks solid defensively but not a lot going forward- probably will use him in games where I'm going to be on the back foot Max Fink - 60mil - The marquee signing this year is an upgrade to centre midfielder, I needed a hard worker and the market was fairly thin so hopefully he can do the job. Juan Loto - 5.5mil - I tried signing this guy last year as he had high potential and offered him silly money for the WP issue. I possibly have shot myself in the foot if he doesnt get on to the international stage any time soon, either that, or I'll try and massively profit.
  11. Not sure - they were 3rd last season and looking at their transfer history they dont seem to have any expensive leavers so doesn't seem to be that I have noticed this season that I've got some players who are foreign but not internationals so they are coming to me and asking for transfers because of the WP rules so maybe their key players are among the 1000 players arsenal loaned out last year No idea!
  12. He's going to be my striker for the next 10 years... How he wasnt making a dent in the championship I dont know but a £36mil release clause meant I snapped Swanseas hands off... 37 in 37 in total! Monster!
  13. May 2030 We started with the Europa League, we disposed of RB Leipzig fairly easily - adding a DM for the away leg then an AMC for home seemed to work well... Inbetween those 2 fixtures, we had Villa, we were lucky to draw and that was really our title race done, not that we were really in it... strange one! However, some good results to finish the season and somehow we finish joint top on points, the low league winning total of 80. 2nd Lowest in a decade... That leaves the cups... First up, Liverpool at Wembley for the FA Cup, the team was obviously up for it as we smashed Liverpool 4-0, despite a recent 1-1 draw... champions! Then finally, we travel to Stade Pierre Mauroy in Lille for our Europa League final against Leverkusen... again we were always in control of the fixture, although they did start to catch up near the end, we were never worried! We've done the double!
  14. April 2030 A fair few fixtures as we approach the business end of things. A solid set of results too. In the league, we grabbed a few wins with the easier fixtures and managed to rotate to have our best players available in the cups... That also went well as you can see in the Juve... I mean Zebre results (I hope they are not nerf'd because they are not Juve?) Total domination in both legs of the Europa... We then had a trip to Wembley and managed to get past United via a late penalty... we will take it for successive final appearances! At this point, I was informed that I'm in the title race... I honestly hadn't noticed... So we went and got 2 draws in our trickiest fixtures, whilst City won their game in hand... Still more than happy with 2nd!
  15. March 2030 Getting towards the business end of the season and we still haven't lost for a while which is promising. Weird set of results but 2 good ones in taking 4 points from Chelsea and Arsenal... A couple of FA cup wins earns us a semi final at Wembley with Man Utd so that is good. We can also see how things will play out in the Europa League now starting with a tough draw against Juve after beating Lyon... We started with an away fixture and a great start, but Lyon did claw back 2 goals to go in equal between games... I was pleased with the away goal advantage coming back home and capitalised easily... Fixture summary: That puts us in a good league position: And here is the full Europa draw...
