  1. Hi guys, I'm looking at replacing my current laptop as it's on its last legs. I've got a budget of around £700 and I'm weighing up which one of these to go for. I have specifically chosen laptops with larger Hard Drives as I need to also store quite a few files for work and my laptop needs to be a good all rounder (my wife will probably sneak it off me to play World of Warcraft too!). Any advice greatly received! https://www.box.co.uk/30026175-Medion-Erazer-P6605_2496888.html#DetailTop https://www.laptopsdirect.co.uk/medion-erazer-p6605-core-i5-8300h-8gb-1tb-hdd-256gb-ssd-15.6-inch-geforce-30026174/version.asp https://www.box.co.uk/NH.Q59EK.01H-Acer-Nitro-5_2873716.html#DetailTop Thanks.
  2. I'll give this ago at the end of the current season, though to be fair your previous tactic is working brilliantly still. Currently in a three way tussle with Man Utd & Liverpool for the title and challenging in the Europa League still in my 4th season with Ipswich and our second season in the Prem' and my 5th season with my team. Being's as it's season 5 I've managed to build up my team quite nicely, I've 4 or 5 wonderkids doing really well and Tahith Chong at right wing is smashing in goals left, right and centre and Barca' Real, Man Utd & Arsenal are sniffing around him.
  3. Really impressed so far, 5 wins on the bounce for my very poor Ipswich squad in their first season in the Prem' , lot's of 1-0 wins but my right winger has banged in 5 goals in 5!
  4. I signed Martin Odegard on loan for £0 wages from Madrid, at the end of the 20/21 season. He did well for me and I extended the loan deal but now the mythical unicorn of Brexit has kicked in it has placed a WP next to his name but Ive not been given an option to apply for a work permit. I've tried going through contracts etc but no luck. Any ideas?
  5. Hi, I've downloaded both of these tactics and but they don't show up when I try to load or import them. (they are both saved in my FM2019 tactics folder). I also downloaded your Burg tactics at the same time, they show up fine. Any ideas?
  6. I'm playing FM2019 with the winter update. I'll do as Neil has advised and let you know how I get on.
  7. Since the update my game continually crashes. I've tried the advice choosing beta update through steam but no luck.
  8. Re-tested with two massive underdogs, Macclesfield and St Mirren. Both hugely over achieved with no new signings. One small tweak was switching off get stuck in as this greatly reduced the amount of red and yellow cards. Macclesfield just failed to make the play-offs, were in contention until the last two games, St Mirren finished 3rd in the Scottish Premiership. Both teams were heavy favourites to finish bottom and had hugely inferior squads and budgets to everyone else.
  9. Season update: just past Christmas and the tactic is holding up well. Top of the table with a team predicted to be relegated. The team stats show how well the ball is retaining possession, creating chances, winning the ball back and keeping the ball out of the net - all amongst the best in the division, but with the lowest wage budget. I'd welcome any feedback or other player's experiences of the tactics:
  10. A good start to our Premier League campaign, only 3 defeats in 19 games and these were a narrow loss to Man City at home and Arsenal & Villarreal away. Only tweaks I've made is to player roles to suit them e.g. playing deep lying player maker role in the centre of the 3 central midfielders for Phil Billing but switching it to a BWM when a less technically adept player takes on that role.
  11. I don't, in fact I look forward to these games more as it gives you a chance to blow away the opposition with the counter press. It won't always work, but your definitely go down swinging
  12. Great stuff - as I mentioned earlier, it seems to do well against better or evenly matched teams , it's when teams park the bus that the counter press fails and then I switch to the tactic I refrenced in an earlier post.
  13. Yes, I only switch to attacking/very attacking in the last 10 minutes if I'm behind, otherwise I don't touch this
