  1. Good manager. Will be appalled if we sack him at any point really.
  2. Done that for you.
  3. I seem to be crashing on the Tuesday/Wednesday of the save. I will give it another try tonight and report back.
  4. Tried all of the above with no luck. I don't know why it has all of a sudden happened, but it has on the same date twice now so is uploaded to FTP. Anti-virus is just Windows Defender and also have CCleaner installed. No custom database etc.
  5. I've uploaded two crash dumps in the file 'game-crash' on FTP: FM 2015 v15.3.1.615248 (2015.03.24 17.42.23).dmp FM 2015 v15.3.1.615248 (2015.03.25 10.56.43).dmp With the game save: 'Journeyman Save' What is happening is, I have won a game twice now after having to repeat it following the first crash, and when I am advancing in the same the game crashes and says a serious crash has occurred. Please see....... for more support.
  6. After a stunning win I was more than happy to hear the delight of everyone involved at the club.
  7. Final Route to Wembley Another excellent run for us as we bettered mainly Premier League sides along the way to the Final. We were given a tough time against Sheffield Wednesday where we were made to work hard for our win, and were also taken to extra-time. Probably our most important win, for the fans at least came in a battling win against Newcastle to give us those much-needed bragging rights. Harry Kane then took over the competition with a first half hat-trick against Arsenal, and another hat-trick in the first leg of the Semi-Final against Brighton. Even in the second leg, where we were expected to see the game through, he scored a superb second half header to give us a draw as he made it seven goals in three games in the competition as we set up a tie against Liverpool. Starting Line-Up's There are a few issues with our line-up going into the game with players missing in vital positions. We are struggling at centre-half and although Neheun Paz is a starter ahead of all these days, we are missing captain Steven Caulker and Alfred Boumsong through injury which means David Vargas has to start in defence. Another absentee is Accursio Bentivegna who is also on the injured list. All that results in a side which, although still strong, is missing key players going into a massive game for us. Final vs. Liverpool Despite any pre-game worries we have put in a remarkable shift in a very open and entertaining Final to pick up our second win in the competition in as many years. We started very strong in the game and dominated early proceedings which resulted in us taking the lead through Wilfried Zaha. Liverpool then worked their way back into the game after that and just after the half hour mark, Emre Can flicked a header home to level things up. That didn't derail us though and the same player who give us the lead, did so once again with his second strike of the game. We went in at the break leading and the players were reminded of complacency which seemed to work as we attacked from the off at the start of the second half. If the first half was all about Wilfried Zaha, then Harry Kane made the second half all about him as he continued his remarkable run in this competition. When Liverpool were looking a threat going forward he doubled our lead with a little over twenty minutes to go. Once again, with Liverpool pushing to get back in the game he scored another superb header to grab his second of the game and all-but seal the game. We sat deep after that and although Liverpool did pull a goal back, we were saw the game through comfortably enough to give us a massive victory.
  8. Fingers crossed. There are a few players missing, especially in defence.
  9. It's Capital One Cup Final time as we seek our second win in a row. To do so we are going to have to beat the side who defeated us two years ago in a one-sided FA Cup Final.
  10. His form has definitely picked up lately. Cheers. Definitely not. We aren't anywhere near realistically challenging them. If we did, it would be a fluke for sure. Yeah I am hopeful. He hasn't started too good, but its early days.
  11. SRL88's Career - Sunderland AFC - December & January 2022/23 Premier League December Results A very mixed month, but who ever comes up with those 'random' fixtures decided to do us over here with our away fixtures. Despite dominating things against Ipswich we were made to wait and work hard for our win. The breakthrough finally came with just fifteen minutes remaining and we then went on to seal the win in stoppage time. Our next encounter saw us travel to Arsenal where we were completely played off the park despite their struggles this season. We rarely ventured forward and looked second best throughout and were comprehensively beaten 3-0. We stayed in London for our next game, this time at Chelsea and although we suffered another defeat, our performance was massively improved. The game was extremely even, but we had the much better chances in the game. It made it all that more difficult to accept defeat when we conceded with just a few minutes left on the clock. After back-to-back defeats we were desperate for a victory against Wigan and once again we were forced to work hard and wait for the winner. After a nervy game, Harry Kane managed to squeeze the ball home from close range to give us a huge win. Our performance improved a lot against Reading and we took the lead through a thunderbolt of an effort from Eddie Hancock. Despite this, Reading leveled things up just before the break and it had massive affect on our confidence going into the second half. We had to dig in before taking the lead once again just after the hour mark before going on to take control of the game and seal a 4-1 win. The month rounded off with another poor performance on the road, this time at runaway leaders Man City as we suffered another 3-0 defeat. January Results Coming off the back of a tricky month it was nice to see us pick our performances up with three wins from three to bring us right back into Champions League contention. An unbelievably quick start against Southampton saw us two goals up in the opening ten minutes. We went on to add a third before some sloppy defending saw our clean sheet disappear, but still picked up a comfortable win. We had to put in a resolute performance against West Ham who gave us a real difficult game. After a tough opening period we began to edge things in the second half and it took a bit of luck to give us the lead through a deflection before going on to seal the win late on for a massive three points. Another quick start at home saw us flying after just four minutes against Aston Villa as we led 2-0, and a third was added just twenty minutes later. We conceded before half-time, but added a fourth in the second half to give us another win. UEFA Champions League Group Stage It was nice to see us round things off with a victory to leave us unbeaten through the group, but it didn't come without a battle. Lyon were impressive in the first half and took a deserved lead after dominating large periods of the opening 45. Some stern words were said at half-time and it didn't take us long to turn things around as we leveled things two minutes after the restart. We went on to add a winner in the game to give us a narrow 2-1 win. We have been reunited with AC Milan once again in the next round, but have the advantage straight away having beaten them last season, and with the first leg in Milan. FA Cup Third & Fourth Rounds Not the best of starts, and things have been very disappointing thus far. We were poor in the first half against Stoke and deserved to be behind in the game at the interval. We didn't start the second half all that well either, but plodded on and found an equalising goal on the hour mark. After that it was all us and we had numerous opportunities to go on and win the game but failed to do so. That took things to a replay where after making a good start I expected us to kick on but it didn't happen. Although Stoke rarely offered a threat, the fact that we only led by one goal left things a little nervy, but we managed to see the game through. The win set up what looked to be a banker of a win against League Two side Portsmouth but we just didn't show up. Portsmouth were really up for it and we looked as though we should have walked things. That wasn't the case as Portsmouth shocked us by taking the lead. Despite leveling the game up before the break we still didn't do anything of note and could easily have exited the competition, and on reflection can consider ourselves lucky to have taken them to a replay. Should we get past Portsmouth in our replay, we will face Brighton at home. Capital One Cup Quarter-Final & Semi-Final 1st Leg Two huge wins of different respects, but brought about by one-man. A stunning first half display against Arsenal by Harry Kane saw him grab a superb hat-trick. Each of those goals came after an Arsenal goal as all five goals in the game were scored before half-time. The second half slowed down a lot, but we did our job to beat another big name in excellent form in this competition. The same man stole the show against Brighton to put us in pole position to make our second Final in a row. Another superb display which saw him lead the line excellently well brought about another hat-trick. If we manage to see through the second leg, we will go on to face either Liverpool or Championship side QPR at Wembley. Transfers One fee jumps out in what was an otherwise pretty low-key transfer window for us. The key was that those players we did bring in help improve the squad further, both now and for the future. Martin Petrov was the first player to leave this window. After a few years with the club he just didn't cut it for us and was soon shipped out in a £5.5m deal. Takuma Ichikawa and recent signing Steve Edwards will spend the rest of the season out on loan at Leicester and Colchester respectively, whilst youngster Nick Ward was released after missing training and then feeling the subsequent fine was unfair. Aaron Kuhl - A massive fee which has seen us break our transfer record once again, but this was a must-deal for me. I've been chasing him for nearly five years now and his form has improved season in, season out for Reading. He is bang in his prime and he will be a key signing for us. Santos - I am on the fence with this deal as I think his signing will go one way or the other. He is either going to be fantastic or he won't settle. I'm hopeful, but time will tell. Antonio Palhinha - This is a deal I have been keeping an eye on for around a year now. I can't believe he hasn't been offered a new deal, which is why we got him on such a cheap deal. Steve Edwards - Another cheap deal due an expiring contract. He hasn't improved as I would have liked to this point, but he has vast potential. David Vargas - He has been brought in purely as a back-up and that is included in his deal. He fills a defensive void, but is also versatile which is a massive benefit.
  12. It's a name which just doesn't feel like it fits, but well done. Bring on the next hundred!!
