Already opened up two threads for previous saves that have been shelved so didn't want to do that again just yet, but I did want to post about my Ipswich game. A quick update on what has happened so far:-
Fantastic stuff, we were expected to finish 15th so to win the bloody thing surpassed my wildest expectations. As you can see, our success was built on an unbelievable defence. I stumbled across a tactic early on and we just went from strength to strength. Despite the figures, we weren't shutting up shop either. We dominated 80% of the matches and if we had a decent striker our goals for would've been much better.
We were up there with a few other sides all year, and then a tremendous 17 match unbeaten run won us the league. We sealed promotion with a fantastic win against Newcastle, who had thrashed us 4-0 earlier on in the season.
We have added a few decent players to the squad in the summer:-
I targeted young players who I could improve and hopefully sell on, and quite a few of them fit that description. Especially pleased with Burke who looks fantastic in real life, and Doukoure who I think could be a real find for us.
I'm about 8 games in to the new season and its gone reasonably well so will hopefully have another update in a few days.
On a different note, I tried this tactic with my Parma team and I still couldn't get them to click. I'm not giving up on that save, but I need a bit of time away as it hasn't been too much fun recently.
