  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. 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.
  7. 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:
  8. 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.
  9. 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
  10. 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.
  11. Yes, I only switch to attacking/very attacking in the last 10 minutes if I'm behind, otherwise I don't touch this
  12. I've not been able to play for a bit due to work but I'm just about to finish season 1, we're champions on 96 points with 4 games to go. I'll update after I'm midway through season 2 and at the end of the season. I've noticed that switching between this and Quantum CS tactic (that can be found below) against lower rated teams at home is effective. Quantum CS dominates the opposition when they're weaker, my blitzkreig attack counter presses the evenly matched or better teams (which is nearly all of them) out of the game.
  13. I usually use other people's tactics but after seeing my own might Ipswich Town rip into Reading a couple of weeks ago I was inspired to recreate that style of play in FM2019. First of all, this is very high energy, you will need players with high team work, work rate and fitness at FB, midfield and up front. The aim is to press the opposition into mistakes and create chances. I was using another tactic from here (unstoppable attacking) and another from Sigames (Quantum) which were pretty successful, but since I switched to my new tactic for the West Brom match I've been blowing teams away! Ipswich are predicted to finish 20th and have the 6th lowest budget in the division. It's okay to tweak player roles to suit your squad but keep the nature of the players role the same e.g. a deep lying playmaker set on defend can take on the role of the centre midfielder on defend. I would leave the pressing forwards alone though as their instructions and role are key to winning the ball high into enemy territory. Finally, be prepared to rotate, especially your fullbacks who cover acres of distance! Team talks I always encourage unless we're losing at half time. I never use opposition instructions. All the best, hope it helps some of you. 4-3-3 Blitzkreig.fmf
  14. Super news Mr Hough, just finishing 2013/2014 challenging Man Utd & Man City for the title, in the UEFA & FA cup finals with the 4-1-2-2-1 Cena tactic, really looking forward to giving the new one a thorough preseason for 2014/2015!
