  1. loversleaper can I ask what your strategy is when you are facing an opponent away from home who has a player sent off? Should you up your mentality markedly ie if you are using tapia (7) because you started as an underdog should you up it only to Querioz or go for Morhunio (13) for instance? Equally when you have a player sent off should you drop your mentality drastically? Any thoughts would be welcome.
  2. It seems to me that when you put the 3 tactics that you may use in a game in the mp screen then when you return to them after a change they seem to hold the gain that you had made previously. All of my various tactics seem to do well with the blue bars now! Fingers crossed this is how the thing is supposed to work. my match results seem to be pretty good anyway. In terms of the work around I have imported all you various tactics and only access them from the drop down menu when in the formation screen and delete the current tactics as and when they appear. Is that right?
  3. Would you be good enough to explain the workaround in more detail - I want to make sure that I transpose the tactics properly. Also do not quite understand your approach to match preperation, i thought it best to place three tactics depending on chances ie if away,wet and underdog then I would place aguirre (6), athletico (11) and Raneri (13) in the mp screen and different 3 tactics if circumstances are different. is that not right? My results seem to be v good so hopefully all is well. A bit more detail on these 2 topics would be much appreciated. Thank you for all your work and updates - i have been a fan of your approach for a number of years.
  4. After lots of searching and reading this excellent thread finally decided to go for this laptop spec......please tell me that this will work on 3d and have a decent amount of leagues...... don't want to look anymore! Thanks in advance!

  5. Thank you very much for the helpful advice. Yourself and Ishu have been brilliant. After much reading on this excellent thread and some searching I have it down to two options. One is a recommendation from a previous post by Ishu http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B003N195U4/ref=asc_df_B003N195U41154552?smid=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&tag=googlecouk06-21&linkCode=asn&creative=22206&creativeASIN=B003N195U4 the other is a dell studio 15 with the following specs; Processor: T7250 Intel Core2 Duo 2.0GHz (2MB Cache, 800MHz FSB) Memory: 3GB (3072MB) DDR2 800MHz Hard Drive: 250GB Serial (SATA) 5400 RPM Display/Screen: 15.6" 1366x768 White LED Widescreen Display with TrueLife 720p HD Optical drive: DVD-ReWriter Drive Graphics Card: ATI Mobility RADEON HD 4570 Graphics with 512MB RAM I have found them for a similar price and would be grateful for an opinion which to go for. Having read this thread I would have thought they would both cope with 3d and a reasonable amount of leagues/players. Strikes me that the Dell may be the better general gaming laptop. However, what do I know? Thoughts would be appreciated, particularly on 3-D capability
  6. Any good? 3d capability and a decent amount of leagues? DELL INSPIRON 1546 LAPTOP AMD Turion X2 Dual Core RM-74 2.20GHz Processor 2.0 GB DDR2 Dual-Channel Memory (800MHz) 250 GB SATA Hard Drive DVD RW DRIVE 15.6" Widescreen XGA (1366 x 768) with TrueLife Resolution: 1366 x 768 ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4300 - 512MB Graphics JCard Intel High Definition Audio 2.0 Advice appreciated!
  7. What about this as an alternative? http://www.saveonlaptops.co.uk/Lenovo_ThinkPad_Edge_15_1007845.html 3-D and and a few leagues? Would extra RAM be necessary? Your patience is appreciated.
  8. As cheap as possible to run on 3d and English, Scottish,French,Spanish, Italian and German leagues. Number of players not an issue. Not really concerned about other games but would be nice if it could cope with some. Saw your link for the £420 option in an earlier post of yours - is there anything cheaper! Thanks for putting up with such a technophobe! Cheers
  9. @ishu I take it from that answer that they are no good for 2010/2011! If so any suggestions for a reasonable cheap option that will manage the game comfortably?
  10. I am close to buying this laptop. Any feedback on whether it will run the game properly from those in the know would be appreciated; HP Compaq NW8240 (Model PG817EA#AK8) Processor: Intel Pentium M 760 (2.0 GHz) Chipset: Intel 915PM (533 MHz FSB) Graphics: ATI Mobility FireGL V5000 128 MB GDDR3 Screen: 15.4" WSXGA+ (1680x1050) Memory: 1.5 GB DDR2-533 (512 MB original, 1 GB upgrade) Hard Drive: 60 GB 7200 rpm (was advertised as 5400 rpm, but it appeared to be Hitachi Travelstar 7K60) Dimensions (HxWxD): 1.1 (at front) x 14.0 x 10.2 in (28 (at front) x 355 x 259 mm) Weight (with weightsaver): 5.8 lb (2.63 kg) Weight (with DVD/CD-RW): 6.1 lb (2.77 kg) Networking: Gigabit Ethernet, WLAN b/g Failing that I am also interested in buying Dell precision m60 with the following specs; Processor: Pentium-M Centrino 1.6ghz = 3.2ghz Memory: 1024mb (1gb) Hard drive: 60gb Optical: Dvd/Cdrw drive Screen: 15.4" WUXGA (1920 x 1200) Graphics: Nvidia quadro FX GO700 128mb graphics Internet Connection: Wifi Wireless, Modem, Lan Are any of these any good? I would be grateful for any feedback before spending the money! Cheers
  11. How are these tactics holding up after patch 10.3? Anyone noticed changes? I guess closing down and defensive lines will need looking at again!!
  12. Thanks for the reply. will try to be aggressive especially late in games with 433 terim. 34 games in only lost 2 games but 12 draws killing me. In serious contention but Should be out of sight!!! Have torres so could not ask for better lone striker. Thanks again
  13. This thread is very helpful. Thanks for your insights. I have progressed to Liverpool having been in charge at Leeds for a couple of seasons. Using 4-1-2-2-1 versions (mainly to accommodate Javier Mascherano) very successfully (4-1-4-1 Tapia is great against class opposition away from home by the way!!). Won everything except league in 2 seasons (too many draws usually) so no complaints. My one question is this having gelled the team with 41221 can you play one off games in a different formation and expect the team to play well i.e I hate playing Villa as they seem to love playing against 41221 formation and thus would like to try 442 against them but is this asking for trouble as the team are not used to it. Would go back to 4122 on the whole but wondered if the odd change can work or are there gelling problems doing that? Also is it wise to change your base formation in different seasons to keep everyone guessing or if the 41221 works then stick with it? Brilliant work! Cheers
