  1. I do use the incremental saves already, but was just concerned that using FMRTE might corrupt or destabilize my save.
  2. Thanks Jinner. Much appreciated. One more question. I know it says that FMRTE can crash your game, but can it corrupt a save?
  3. Is this version compatible with FM10? I looked on the FMRTE official site and there's only the 4.3 version to download.
  4. 30 seasons with Cordoba CF in FM10. Unfortunately my save started experiencing constant crashing after that, otherwise I'd be continuing it still.
  5. What do you mean by "maximize options" and " have a match that doesn't really slow down"? Can you clarify these a bit? The English Premier League is the top ranked league in the world, if that's what you're looking for.
  6. Dave, was just thinking, why don't you have the counter attacking option ticked in your tactics?
  7. 1. The latest tactic is the last one in the OP. 2. The wizard final unbeaten is the second to last in the OP. 3. The difference is that one tactic is made in a classic way and the other is made using the tactics wizard/creator. Plus there are some differences in team instructions mainly, like different width, tempo, defensive line. It's entirely up to you regarding the use of OIs. Some people use them and others don't. You can try using them and see if they work for you.
  8. There could be many reasons for this. One is that your players have low anticipation stats. If it's the strikers, then they're making their forward runs too early. If it's the midfielders, then they're possibly making through passes to the strikers too late. Or it could be a combination of both. Plus the opposing team is probably using the offside trap. Are you still getting good results though? It will happen in some matches more than others.
  9. Good choice with getting Dzeko. Since Drogba is getting old, you can try getting Romelu Lukaku as a player who can replace him in the future. That is if you want to continue to play with those types of strikers.
  10. You seem to be new not only to Football Manager, but to football in general Am I right? Since you are Chelsea, then you already have many excellent players for this tactic, or for any tactic for that matter. You can just strengthen a few areas if you wish with the 68 million you were given. I think with Chelsea it would be good to get at least one more striker. You have one of the strongest squads in the game already, no need to sell all your players. If you do want to sell, then I'd suggest you get rid of the players that simply don't fit into the tactic, like wingers for example. However, there are certain wingers that can be effective as strikers also.
  11. After you've created a "filter" folder, you have to put the filters you've downloaded into it. Then in the game you can import them. Yes you need to try to get players that the filters find, otherwise, the tactic wont perform very well.
  12. Yes, in that case you can try playing more direct because your assistant is saying that your players are completing few short passes while having success with long passes. However, I personally don't pay much attention to the assistant's feedback. First, because possession is not a priority for me. Having advantage in possession does not equate to winning a match. I always go by what I see on the pitch, not what my assistant tells me. Second, his advice is rather trivial and misleading. He could be saying that you're not completing many short passes because a couple players have been struggling in this area, while the rest of the team is playing mainly medium or long range passes. He simply doesn't give you much of an explanation as to why the short passing has been poor, only that it has been poor and that's it. He could also, for example, say that your long range shooting has been poor, while only one long range shot has been attempted and missed.
  13. I find it strange that you're having difficulty against a wide diamond formation with a 4-1-2-3, because if anything, you should actually have the advantage in this case. You are packing the midfield and playing through the middle, where the opposition has only two players (AMC and DMC), plus there's a gap between them in which your two MCs usually sit. Here's just one example of me playing against a wide diamond: I also used some OIs, like tight marking the AMC and both STs, plus showing all players onto their weaker foot. Usually I don't use OIs at all, but when I play big teams, I tend to use at least some. The main thing is not to go overboard with the "close down" OI. That's the one that makes your team loose shape and open up gaps for opposing players. In my own game, I never use this particular OI, but I do use the other ones, because they don't affect your team's positioning so drastically.
  14. Cordoba 7 - 0 Barcelona. All goals from open play. The Cordoba manager appeared to be quite satisfied with the result in the post-match conference
