  1. Good to know it isn't just me! Will wait for a fix.
  2. I have tried to download the demo to tide me over until I buy the full game. Every time I have downloaded it, I'm greeted by the message: When I look in the Application Support folder, the Steam folder doesn't exist. Any ideas?
  3. Leyton Orient have signed Robbie Weir (2 years - option of an extra year) and Josh Doherty (one year - option of an extra year), as stated above. They have also confirmed the appointment of Andy Hessenthaler as manager on a one year deal
  4. Not been put down yet - Leyton Orient release Frazer Shaw, Connor Essam, Jobi McAnuff, Blair Turgott, Bradley Pritchard, Gary Woods, Lloyd James (since joined Exeter), Mathieu Baudry (since joined Doncaster). Orient have also exercised the right to extend Nicky Hunt's contract by another year. Leyton Orient are also currently managerless, Andy Hessenthaler is the caretaker.
  5. I am at Liverpool in January of 2022. I first saw this guy when I played Ajax in the Champions League group stage in about 2019. He scored twice against me and looked fantastic and he was scoring for fun in the Dutch leagues, so naturally I scouted him. My scouts didn't actually rate him all that highly, got a response of at best 3.5 stars. I was a little disappointed but I had a feeling about him and maintained scout reports on him, every week for about a year or two. I had so much money, and I had hardly bought anyone, and Mario Gotze was reaching the end so I thought, why not? He came in for 28 million pounds and immediately set his case for first team, was fantastic. In his first season, he played 55 times, scoring 25 times and getting 18 assists and has improved even further in his second season, 26 games played, 14 goals scored and 13 assists and has just won the World Golden Ball. A real gem.
  6. As an Orient fan, I remember Charlie Daniels very well. Signed on loan and then permanently and was fantastic for us, combined so well with Dean Cox on the left-side. Was a bit disappointed he left to Bournemouth who were below us in L1 at the time but they were spending quite a bit at that point so I couldn't begrudge him the move. Obviously I never foresaw the rise Bournemouth would make. I was so excited for him and was disappointed when they spent so much on Tyrone Mings but when he kept Mings out of the team (before Mings unfortunately got injured), I was delighted. Really pleased for his rise.
  7. Last year on a Liverpool save, I signed a 16 year old from Dagenham and Redbridge for 60k. He'd played 11 games for them and took a few years but eventually he became not only a first-team player but a key player. Was valued at like 57 million pounds when I left.
  8. Thats an incredible amount of goals. Do you mind showing me your tactic and instructions please? How's Jay Simpson doing for you?
  9. IPSWICH 2020-21 HALF SEASON UPDATE Following from my earlier post, I have reached the half-way stage in the 2020 season with Ipswich. Been a decent start to our return to the Championship. We are sat in 7th after 24 games, as we reach the January transfer window. We have been going in spells, a run of good form to open the season, a run of poor form towards the middle and then the recent form has been excellent. The best performances have come from left midfielder Josh Murphy, who has 6 goals and 8 assists, Andre Dozzell who has done well in CM and the two loanees - Jamie Bell, the AMC has 9 goals in 15 games and Moussa Dembele, the Fulham striker has 5 goals in 5 games so far!
  10. So, I am in 2020 at the minute as have been on this save since the BETA. I will give you a quick rundown. I started my career at Leyton Orient in League 2. We had a great first season, and won the league on the final day, snatching it from Portsmouth. We moved up to League 1 and performed very well, leading the league for large parts of the season but a poor Christmas and end of the season meant we finished three points off the playoff spaces in 7th. We almost did the same in my third season as manager but we crept into the playoffs in 5th, and after winning against Oldham in the semi-final, we narrowly lost to Wigan in the playoff final 1-0. The fourth season went poorly and although we were mid table, I was sacked. So I eventually got a new job at the new League 1 side Ipswich, who had been relegated from the Championship. They had a lot of unhappy players and although the squad was excellent, I needed to make a lot of changes. I sold a number of key players and brought in some of my own, including four loans. We did excellently, taking a while to reach the top but keeping it comfortably and we won by 10 points. That brings me to where we are now which is 4 games into the 2020 season, where we are in the Championship and we are sat in 4th place having won three and lost once. Looking okay - kept the squad largely the same from the season before, bringing in Fabio and James Tomkins on frees, Walter Kannemann for 2.6 million from Liverpool (Left-back who starts at Atlas in Mexico) and Eder from Sampdoria for 1.6 million.
  11. Sorry I have taken a while to respond, I got sacked in my 4th season with the O's which was a little unfair. For the first year I played a 4-3-1-2 formation, with Cox playing as an AP behind the strikers and in front of 3 CM's. He was my player of the season, 8 goals and 5 assists having spent half the year injured but would have liked more. Moved him out wide to adjust to a 4-2-3-1 formation from second season and in the next seasons he got 8 goals and 11 assists and in his best year, 9 goals and 16 assists
  12. So here's a small write-up of my Orient career so far: SEASON ONE Notable Transfers Incoming Mason Bennett [Loan - Derby] Matt Palmer [Loan - Burton Albion] Adam Chicksen [Loan - Brighton] Duncan Watmore [Loan - Sunderland] Outcoming Jobi McAnuff [Loan - Eastleigh] Ollie Palmer [Loan - Gateshead] Blair Turgott [Loan - Kiddersminster] League Performance 1st. Leyton Orient [P46, W30, D5, L11 - 95 POINTS] 2nd. Portsmouth [P46, W27, D12, L7 - 93 POINTS] 3rd. Oxford [P46, W26, D10, L10 - 88 POINTS] Season Review The season started off with a flourish, winning 6 of our opening 7 games and only conceding one goal in that whole time. Our first loss came in our eighth game of the season with a narrow 1-0 defeat to Wycombe but we continued our fine form regardless, winning the next eight games in the league. Form started dropping in January and February whilst Portsmouth pushed us at the top of the table but seven wins in eight games meant that the league title went down to the final game. We needed Portsmouth to drop points and us to win as they had a considerably larger goal-difference. We battled against Yeovil and went down to 10 men after Alan Dunne was sent off in the 52nd minute. However, our star striker Mason Bennett gave us the lead with just over ten minutes to go. News trickled through with just a couple minutes to go that Portsmouth had conceded an equaliser meaning we were winning the title. Sean Clohessy got himself sent off to make it even more nervous as we went full defence mode but we hung on and we took the league title. Player Performance Mason Bennett - 51 games, 29 goals, 7.34 average rating Mathieu Baudry - 45 games, 4 goals, 7.31 average rating Dean Cox - 26 games, 8 goals, 7.17 average rating SEASON TWO Notable Transfers Incoming Mason Bennett [Loan - Derby] Duncan Watmore [Loan - Sunderland] Adam Chicksen [Free - Brighton] Danny Devine [Free Transfer] Jack Payne [150k - Peterborough] Outcoming Bradley Pritchard [Free Transfer] Gary Woods [Free Transfer] Alan Dunne [Free Transfer] Frazer Shaw [Free Transfer] League Performance 6th. Coventry City [P46, W22, D12, L12 - 78 POINTS] 7th. Leyton Orient [P46, W21, D12, L13 - 75 POINTS] 8th. Doncaster [P46, W20, D14, L12 - 74 POINTS] Season Review It went down to the final game of the season again but this time we ended up on the wrong side of it as we failed to qualify for the playoffs after losing to Coventry in the final game of the season. Despite losing the opening two league games, we went on an incredible run of wins with 11 wins in 14 games, with two draws. We were cruising at the top of the table but our form collapsed in the second half of the season as we not only threw our gap at the top of the table but lost our automatic promotion spot, losing 13 of 16 games between December and February, and two disappointing defeats in our final two games meant we missed out on the playoffs which was incredibly frustrating. Player Performance Mason Bennett - 45 games, 29 goals, 7.21 average rating Phil Devonshire [Youth Intake Player] - 41 games, 1 goal, 12 assists, 7.01 average rating Dean Cox - 37 games, 8 goals, 11 assists, 7.21 average rating
  13. Cheers Ty! Thankfully that issue is sorted, so we can start discussing Orient saves.
  14. I made the Leyton Orient FM thread and when I made the post containing all the players and squad rundown and game screenshots, it said it was awaiting moderators approval and hasn't been posted yet. Have I misread it or will it get posted in next few days?
  15. I had made a post with all the players and a squad run-down and when it was posted it said that it was awaiting moderators approval. I assumed it would come but it obviously hasn't yet. I'll get in touch with them or I'll add it later. Oh and most of the copy and paste has come from the post last year which I did on my old account.
