    Still 13 mate, my laptop can't take anything later, but cheers.

    It was better than the pizza... Swedes don't really get pizza!
  3. [FM18] - IFK Sundsvall - A Swedish Only Experience

    Have fun. I went to Sundsvall about a year ago to cover some boxing. Nice town, and the furthest north I've ever been. Not sure why you needed that nugget of info, but there you go! Best of luck.

    Whisper it quietly, but I *think* I've succeeded at getting into a new save. Merry belated Christmas all.
  5. UEFA Europa League Quarter final 1st leg: Dundee United 0-1 Arsenal We were always up against it in this 'battle of Britain', and the 2014 Europa League winners just edged the game on the night. Young Scotland international Alan Hunter slotted home after half an hour, and although we pressed relentlessly, we couldn't find a way back into the game. 2nd leg: Arsenal 2-1 Dundee United Well, well, well. This may say 2-1 to them, but that doesn't tell the whole tale - we gave them an almighty scare. Youngster Neil Chisholm put us in front just before the hour, bagging his 30th goal of the season in the process, only for Arsenal to hit back 5 minutes later. With a goal needed to send us through, I went for it with 12 minutes to go, pushing the defensive line up high and launching into an attacking mentality, and with 6 minutes to go, I thought we'd done it. David Wotherspoon was released by fellow winger Gary Mackay-Steven, and he raced into the box to slot beyond the keeper....only for the ball to agonisingly strike the post, and Cillian Sheridan smashed the rebound off the bar. Arsenal immediately broke, and Will Hughes found space beyond our high back line, beat the offside trap, and smashed beyond Bell. Tie over, but a great effort all round.
  6. March Back playing the save for a couple of days, and I've already got two more trophies for the cabinet. The league hasn't looked in doubt for a while, but the league cup final was a really tough encounter with Celtic. 3-1 didn't tell the whole story, but I'll take the victories anyway they come...
  7. It really does... good to be back, though.
  8. Enjoyed catching up with this. Great work in Denmark, hope you can continue your march up the table.
  9. [FM18] A New Avenue For The Discarded...

    Incredible progress since I last checked in. You make this look easy...
  10. Europa League Last 16 1st leg: Valencia 2-1 Dundee United I had very little hope of getting anything from our trip to Spain, so to walk away with a one goal defeat and an away goal was outstanding. Valencia were in front after just 8 minutes as we fell asleep from a corner, and they got a second just after half time on the counter. We hit back after 65 minutes though, Stuart Armstrong won the ball deep in Valencia's half and fed Neil Chisholm, and the young striker smashed the ball into the corner. Game on. 2nd leg: Dundee United 4-1 Valencia I'd forgotten just how good this team was, tbh. Chisholm again scored in this one, slotting home a penalty after 3 minutes, but Valencia levelled soon after. Ben Bruce drilled us back in front after 20 minutes, and the game stayed that way until the 82nd minute, when a bit of magic from David Wotherspoon from distance put us in front in the tie. Valencia pushed on, but Darren Petrie's dinked finish on the break secured our progress in stoppage time.
  11. Youth intake Not a great deal this year. Ah well...
  12. First team Just a reminder of some of our best players: Reserve and youth players
  13. January & February And so here we are, the thread is alive again. Things are going to plan domestically, we have the league cup final against Celtic to come in March, and we also have an all-Dundee Scottish Cup semi final in April. As for Europe, we meet Valencia in the last 16 of the Europa League, so I expect that run to come to an end very soon.
  14. Gradually working through this and adding images again. Hoping to update tomorrow.
  15. Struggling with this at the moment. The game seems to have slowed down to a snail's pace, and considering my time is now much more limited with the arrival of our second kid, I'm not able to make any kind of progress.
