  1. Cheers mate. Was originally looking at this; https://www.saveonlaptops.co.uk/3ZV36EAABU-HP-OMEN-15-dc0003na_2354461.html Is it worth the extra £100? Or is your suggestion the better of the 2?
  2. So I'm after a new laptop mainly for FM and maybe a bit of other light gaming. Got a budget of up to £800 but don't want to go blow too much on a laptop I could get cheaper elsewhere. Anybody got any recommendations? Any deals on or anything anywhere at the moment? Thanks in advance.
  3. The window slammed shut and I'm not sure whether I'm happy or not with the way it went. I'm happy as we have adequate cover in every position and I believe we have a squad worthy of at least staying in the league, but I'm not happy because I had some very good targets get away after interest from other clubs, so had to panic buy with the likes of Diarra, Hoban and Abate, just to ensure we had some experienced backup. Also unhappy with how hard it seemed to offload players, still got some deadwood in the U23s which I can't move on, so we may end up getting stung by FFP.
  4. Can anyone recommend players worth bringing in for the Premier League? The board have given me a healthy £38 Million to play with, just don't want to waste it.
  5. Our fans player of the season went to Barry Douglas, with fellow defenders Pontus Jansson and Luke Ayling being the runners up. Our top goalscorer was Kemar Roofe, but disappointingly only with 12 goals. Phillips, Hernandez and Alioski all finished with 7 assists. Lewis Baker had a very good season for me, so we've made his transfer permanent for a fee of £4.7 Million. And this is how we lined up for the most part of the second half of the season, rotating Hernandez, Lasso and Saiz in the AM role. As well as Jota and Harrison and the AML IF role. Roofe, Bamford and Calvert-Lewin also rotated up top. If we were injury strickin we would normally play a 4-1-4-1 DM Wide with a Fluid Counter-Attack style of play. Am now looking at players available to bring in and keep us in the Premier League.
  6. The favour came from Derby and we go up as champions, a brilliant turn around, Premier League here we come, will post a bit more of a season review later on!
  7. So, thanks to some excellent performances from players brought in during the January transfer window, we go into the last game of the season like this. It's been an excellent turn around, though we did recently drop points to Birmingham and Brentford, both of which are struggling in the bottom half of the table, otherwise we'd have promotion all wrapped up. Finally managed to adapt my tactics so when we have a mass amount of injuries, we have a formations and playing styles that work with the players available too us. Will be back very soon after the last game of the season, we play Ipswich, West Brom have Derby and Reading are at home to Birmingham. Praying we win and someone does us a favour, wish me luck!
  8. January transfer window is over and done with, think I may have brought a few too many in, but wanted to make sure we had enough cover in positions where we've been plagued by injury. Obilor has been amazing at the back so far, so happy to pick him up on a free. Also managed to keep hold of both Saiz and Hernandez, also came close to losing Jansson to Stoke, but luckily managed to keep him around. Just picked up a 3-1 win against Rotherham, hopefully the start of us turning our season around.
  9. My Leeds save looks to be coming too an early end. We started the season great, around 10 games in we were sitting comfortably in the top 3, but then injuries and fatigue hit leaving us with a very limited squad. We went 5 games without a win, most of which were losses, but we managed to turn this around and went 5 games unbeaten, 3 wins and 2 draws, but once again we got plagued by injuries, meaning we went on a 6 game streak without a win, sitting 13th in the table. Players are distressed, morale at an all time low and to top it off, both Pablo Hernandez and Samu Saiz have handed in transfer requests. The board have told me to keep the job I need 11 points from my next 5 games, the first of which was a 1-1 draw against top of the league Derby. I now have 4 games to gain 10 points or i'm gone. Hopefully I can turn it around, but i'm not too sure. I've seen that my team are very capable, but unfortunately it's been less often than we've needed.
  10. Cheers, will give it a go when I get back on after work tonight. My centre back partnership of Shaunghnessy and Halme is playing surprisingly well, unfortunately Jansson picked up a lengthy injury around the same time. Cooper got a suspension for 10 yellow cards.
  11. Around halfway through the season and I'm struggling a lot, mostly for consistency. 11 Points off of an automatic spot and it'll probably get worse. Injuries left, right and center means I haven't been able to get a solid 11. The most annoying thing is, we do fine gaining points against anyone in the top half of the league, but seem to struggle against those in the bottom half. Is there anything anybody could suggest? Tactics are normally as follows, though team selection is not accurate due to injuries.
  12. Browsed these forums for a few years now but very rarely post, however just started my Leeds save for this year. My transfer window was pretty quiet, Robbie Keane brought in purely for nostalgic reasons and will become a part of the backroom staff once his playing contract is up. Bulka brought in from Chelsea due to an injury to Blackman, he's costing us nothing in wages so another backup keeper for the season for free. Van Der Moot is a young striker we've loaned straight out, doubtful he'll ever make the first team, but we can profit on him in the future if anything. Everyone else was brought in as backup to the first team. Our tactics are simple, tiki taka football in a 4-2-3-1 formation. We will play a 4-1-4-1 in tough away games, hoping to shut out the opposition and hit them on the counter. First game was a success with a 3-0 win against Stoke, goals coming from Baker (2) and Roofe off the bench. Hopefully we can continue from this and gain promotion in my first season in charge.
  13. So my first season is now over, we won the league comfortably by 14 points, Oscar was named PFA Player Of The Year, Hazard took FWA Footballer Of The Year, Courtois won the Golden Glove, Oscar,Cahill, Hazard and Courtois all got into the PFA Team Of The year and I was named Manager Of The Year. We also won the league cup, however were knocked out of the FA Cup Semi Finals 3-1 by Arsenal after I put a weak side out and we also lost out to Atletico Madrid on penalties in the Quarter Finals of the Champions League. Overall it was a good first season, though I would've liked to see more goals from Costa, who ended the season on 18 goals from 35 games, Hazard was our top scorer with 21 goals. My aims for next season are to strengthen the depth of the squad a little more, as injuries so us playing youth players in some of our big games and in doing this I think I'll be able to soldier on and win everything in my second season.
  14. Just out of interest, from the starting squad what players have you guys been able to get playing consistently well week in week out? For me it's been Hazard, Oscar (currently recovering after being on the sidelines for 3 months) Cahill and Terry. Costa has been decent, but not scoring as much as I'd like him to.
