  1. I always considered my starting club a sliding scale of difficulty. For instance, starting at a Prem team is always going to be easier than playing with a previously unplayable club - i.e. Dafuge challenge. Is this not the case?
  2. Basingstoke Town - Vanarama National League - 2020/21 Well our first season in the Vanarama National League went waaaay better than expected! We utilised a transfer strategy one of the other managers mentioned previously in this thread, we offered trials to every single youth player released by a Premiership club and signed all those that would accept an offer. The idea was to benefit from having decent players on board with the opportunity of selling them on with high clauses as and when bids come in. Two of those signings were snapped up this season as you can see from the transfer
  3. Not sure whether this helps or not, but 'Other expenditure' is slightly elaborated on in this direct quote from Neil Brock:
  4. If you're referring to examples of the money increasing in the same save, are you sure the disparity is as a result of the friendlies and not something else?
  5. It's definitely the fee's you pay to these clubs in order to get them there for the friendlies. So whilst revenue will be showing much higher, the fees for these friendlies now go into Expenditure - Other.
  6. Basingstoke Town - Vanarama National League South - 2019/20 What a mad first season! With only 1 scout, it took an absolute age to find the suitable improvements necessary to be competitive. The boards expectation was that we would fight bravely against relegation, but secretly my backroom staff and I had set our aims a lot higher! The media expected us to struggle too but were slightly more confident than the board, expecting us to avoid the drop with a bit of luck. As it turned out, we were in a tense title race with Kingstonian for the majority of the season, finally leapfrogging
  7. So halfway through my first season last night and it was announced the UK was to have a hard Brexit (all EU players require a work permit)... Really gutted and tempted to bin the save and start fresh! Has anyone succeeded under a hard Brexit?
  8. Hi guys, Rather late to the party but decided to give this a proper go for the first time in years! Was hoping to get lucky and get a load with Brightlingsea as one of the potential clubs to manage as they are the closest to me geographically, but got seriously bored with what must have been 100 or so reloads! Decided to settle for a club I didn't think anyone else had started a save with. Introducing the new Basingstoke manager...
  9. I'm looking to bring in a decent AMR to play as an Inside Forward. I've got Chiesa but not overly impressed with him, so I'd like to bring someone else in to rotate with him. Mata does that job currently but he's getting on a bit! My targets at the moment are Leon Bailey or Mbappe. I'd be curious to hear whether anymore has used Mbappe in that position as an IF with any great success? I know he has the cuts inside ppm which is good, but I've always preferred opposite footed players cutting in...that's one of the reasons I can't decide between him and Bailey.
  10. I sold Lukaku and brought Dybala in to replace him as a False 9. He's brilliant!
  11. I'm having fun with Juventus during the Beta, on full release I'll do my usual Man Utd save to grind to top of the Hall of Fame. Their squad is unreal - Chiellini, Bonucci, Sandro, Pjanic, Matuidi, Ronaldo, Dybala...it's absolutely mental!
  12. Just a quick note to say that I went with this one in the end and fired a new save up on it this weekend! It's already noticeably faster than I've had previously so early signs are good!
  13. Thanks for the advice, but I'm going to show my age now. That laptop comes with both a HDD and SSD, how would you you combine the use of both to get the best performance? I.e. What would you install on the SSD?
