    How to add new leagues?

    My laptop processor is very slow. I am attempting to do a moneyball save so will need to load smaller leagues in a save with crystal palace. Is there a way I can do this to add more players to my database without heavily affecting the speed? If so, which leagues? Thanks

    Best tactic/style for a newly promoted team?

    I have just gotten Derby promoted to the premier league and want to sort out what playing style and formation to use next season. My team is very versatile so almost every type of style can be used, but I feel like a 4-1-4-1 or 4-3-3 defensive or standard would be best. What do you recommend I do?

    Crystal Palace?

    I need a centre back (preferably ball playing def) and a left mid/left winger (can either be a winger or more of a wide playmaker/wide midfielder). I would prefer if they're both a bit younger and my budget is 12 million pounds, any ideas?

    Game lags/freezes?

    Whenever I start the first or second half, the screen stays stuck on the '0:00' or '45:00' screen for about 20 seconds, then advances about 5 minutes later and usually ends in a goal or two conceded. Please help me fix it?

    I have been using Crystal Palace in the beta and so far I am doing quite well. I have made three pretty good tactics - one is an attacking one that I use at home against similar/weaker teams, one is a counter attacking tactic that I use at home against slightly stronger teams and away at similar...

    Anyone else struggling to beat Norwich?

    It took me so many seasons to realise that the only way to beat the 4231 of Norwich is to play a 4-3-1-2. Previously, they had consistently beaten me with huge scorelines too. Has anyone else struggled to beat them?
