  1. The Conference is a very hard league, with only one going up automatically and one going up through the playoffs. Typically you won't have much cash to play with so make use of the loan market as best you can. I think there's a tendency for people to overthink things, tactics-wise. For example, you don't need to choose between stay on feet and get stuck in - just leave it alone if you don't need either. Just because it's there, doesn't mean you need to use it. As others have mentioned, the tactics forum is fantastic for understanding the game better. I was rubbish at the game until I spent a couple of hours reading some of the articles on there. It will help you understand what each role does, what mentalities are best for big matches, etc. As a more general note, I find it quite important to have at least two, or preferably three formations that you're very familiar with. At a lower level with a smaller squad it's trickier to just slot different players into existing roles/positions - can be a lot easier to just change the formation.
  2. I'm using a pretty similar tactic on an Arsenal save and, with a few tweaks, did the domestic treble and lost in the semis of the champions league. You aren't too far away, looking at your results, so a few changes should see you right. First off, I'd say you need another striker. Giroud is pretty good but he's more of a target man than a complete forward. Buy someone like Higuain for 40m and rotate him with Giroud and see what works. Cazorla is a brilliant player to have in the squad - either as cover for Ozil or Ramsay. Rotating the three of those should give you some good play through the middle. How does Bellerin do for you when he plays? I play him as a wing back or full back (attack) and he's brilliant. 15 assists, 8 goals and he's only getting better. Fiddle about with these things and see what works for you, and make sure you rotate every position when you can. The beauty of a club like Arsenal is that they have depth in pretty much every position so with a bit of trial and error you can go a long way.
  3. You can qualify for the CL via the league but obviously you go in at the very first qualifying round. Winner of the Rock Cup goes in at the same stage of the Europa League.
  4. I've just come to the end of my first season with Woking, and did reasonably well (lost in the playoff final, a sickener). The problem I've got is that after the season the club turns fully professional from semi-pro. This causes a fair few problems, mostly that the players aren't fit enough to play full time and I can't afford to bring anyone in as I'm now using all my budget on full time wages. Anyone know if there's a way to stop or reverse this? I could understand if I'd been promoted, but as I'm in the same league with the same budget it seems strange to make the change without at least giving me an option.
  5. Thanks. Don't need it to be lightning but my old laptop can only really handle half a dozen playable leagues and I'm not really getting the most out of the game.
  6. Hi All, Can anyone tell me if this would do the job? http://www.pcworld.co.uk/gbuk/computing/laptops/laptops/hp-pavilion-15-ab291sa-15-6-laptop-red-10138072-pdt.html Am generally looking to run 10/12 leagues with medium sized database - not too bothered about the 3D match engine. Also, on a sort-of related note, can I transfer my current save to the new laptop via Steam or will I need to start again? Thanks
