  1. To be fair, in the majority of saves, I've seen Klopp get sacked within the first 1-3 seasons, with maybe 1 league or UCL win in that time. Though, in my current Benfica save, they have won the league 4 out of 5 years and the UCL 3 out of 5.
  2. This is the one I went for and I can't recommend it enough for the price. 3D is a bazillion times better than anything I've ever had previously and where running 4 divisions from England would have given me half a star performance in the past, 6 countries with 16 divisions is 4 stars. Granted, I've always had a laptop with the bare minimum specs to run FM previously, but still very happy with this laptop.
  3. Does the processor cache size make a difference mate? That's the only difference as far as i can tell. This is the spec: Product Description Lenovo V155-15API - 15.6" - Ryzen 5 3500U - 8 GB RAM - 256 GB SSD - QWERTY UK Product Type Notebook Operating System Win 10 Home 64-bit - English Processor AMD Ryzen 5 3500U / 2.1 GHz (3.7 GHz) / 2 MB Cache Memory 8 GB DDR4 (1 x 4 GB + 4 GB (soldered)) Storage 256 GB SSD NVMe Optical Drive DVD-Writer Display 15.6" LED backlight 1920 x 1080 / Full HD Graphics AMD Radeon Vega 8 Numeric Keypad Yes Integrated Webcam Yes Networking 802.11a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.1, Gigabit Ethernet Battery Up to 5 hours Security Firmware Trusted Platform Module (TPM 2.0) Security Chip Colour Iron grey Dimensions (WxDxH) 36.3 cm x 25.4 cm x 2.29 cm Weight 2.2 kg Localisation Language: English / region: United Kingdom Environmental Standards ENERGY STAR Qualified Manufacturer Warranty Limited warranty - 1 year - pick-up and return
  4. @kevhamster would this one be the same? https://www.laptopsdirect.co.uk/lenovo-v155-15api-amd-ryzen-5-3500u-8gb-256gb-ssd-15.6-inch-radeon-vega-8-w-81v50008uk/version.asp#/specs I can collect locally and it's a bit cheaper. Only 2mb cache compared to 6mb on the one you quoted?
  5. @Smurf @kevhamster or anyone else! £400 budget give or take a little. Looking for something to run FM20. Happy to forgo graphics in return for processing. I rarely play in 3D. Hopefully something that can run multiple divisions from multiple countries for multiple years. Reconditioned is fine too. Cheers!
  6. Just got caught up with this. I started an FMT19 save, to try it out before purchasing FM20, which will probably be after christmas, I might even wait until the Jan update. Anyway, I've done a couple of seasons with Atalanta and I'm enjoying it so far but it was interesting to see how you're getting on. I fell for the 'Apply design a son' or whatever too. I thought, cool, clicked on it and then groaned as the steam store loaded up. I thought that was cheeky. I'm trying/looking at different saves in FMT19 to keep me going. South America is on my radar but I need to get the right vibe for a team. I was thinking of Vasco De Gama, as I'd been watching some clips of Romario and I even watched the Copa Libertadores on Saturday but nothing is taking my fancy so far. Anyway, enough of me waffling. It sounds like you're not fully sold on FMT. Not sure I am either but I do find myself delegating almost everything in full FM and the mentoring/youth development seems to be dialled back to me from previous versions, so I'm not ruling FMT out totally.
  7. KUTGW mate. I do love a Bundesliga save and I've often been tempted by FMT but the few times I've tried it, it hasn't really stuck. Can you import faces and kits and badges? I'd be playing it on a laptop as opposed to tablet.
  8. Fantastic write ups! My favourite FM20 thread so far!
  9. I'm just putting some feelers out at this point. My budget is probably £600 max. For a little context, my current laptop is bearable running say 5 or 6 leagues for 5 or 6 seasons before the processing just grinds to a halt. I play mainly in 2D because it doesn't handle the 3D engine very well. What I'd like is a machine capable of handling 4 or 5 nations with all leagues loaded, so I can do some journeyman saves or be able to play on past 5 or 6 seasons in general without it becoming a grind and for the 3D engine to be at least smooth and watchable. I'll still probably play the majority in 2D but highlights and the odd 3D game would be nice, but the processing speed for multiple nations/leagues is of more importance to me. I don't mind going down the route of a reconditioned machine if it means more bang for my buck but I'm looking for some recommendations in this price range to keep an eye on for Black Friday. EDIT: And anything in the £400 range as that might be more realistic. Thanks in advance guys.
  10. This thread is one of the highlights every time a new FM is released. I keep promising myself that this year will be the year when I will give a Bilbao save a shot. Maybe this year I will! I'll certainly be keeping an eye on here for updates regardless.
  11. Have you turned on 'Work Ball Into Box' that should help a little and you can always use PI's too to tell players/positions to shoot less often.
  12. I got a son once in FM14 or FM15 I think, whilst managing AS Roma. I actually got him in the first intake, second one at most. Not had one since though.
  13. Wow, just amazing the last few seasons since getting into the league!
  14. Wow. Very solid start! You should be able to grow the club pretty quickly now?
