  1. Well, it looks like the party is over. After scraping a 4-3 away victory over another derby rival, the striker that really makes the whole thing work (Central TM(A), has scored 8 goals in the last two matches) is out for 4 to 6 weeks. So I no longer have three "star strikers" to overwhelm the opponent and I think the experiment is over. I do have a fourth striker who is certainly not bad, but I don't think it will be the same. It's a shame, I was curious if this massively unbalanced formation could actually win the playoffs. I'm switching to a very similar 41221, which just replaces the outsid
  2. Thanks for the feedback all! (the last time I checked, this had been sinking down the forum without comment, so I though maybe the fact that I was basically rambling without asking a clear question was dooming the thread to oblivion). @Experienced DefenderI thought about just tweaking the 4-4-2, but I was already struggling to stop attacks up the middle with only two MCs and I had just sold my best MC destroyer (he was in decline at 31, only played in half my matches due to fatigue from international duty and I got $250,000 for him which is LOT of money in Honduras). I had been engaging i
  3. In my massive Journeyman save (200+ leagues in 104 countries), I took over a team in a downloaded Honduran League (after resigning from Wigan because I spent the entire time I was there, including the summer transfer window under embargo due to a pending takeover. 4 months and couldn't even hire staff or arrange loans; the takeover completed within a few weeks of my resigning...). I have dramatically over-performed in the first half of the season, playing a simple 4-4-2 that largely scores on the counter against teams that underestimate the speed of the my strikers. The strikers are liter
  4. Really dumb question I'm sure, but where would I find the continental qualifiers for a league? I see them in game in the rules (Honduras custom league I downloaded) but when I load the editor data and search both the league and Continental competition I don't see them.
  5. FrazT did mention that the players have to agree to the code as well (which we hadn't discussed in a team meeting yet), so that explains why the discipline wasn't automatic I guess? But the possible bug is still there in that the control in the Inbox message didn't work (and this wasn't the first time, I just thought to post a bug report when it happened again),
  6. Hang on, I took over Wigan late first season and although I had accepted the Code of Conduct from the Inbox item, we had not had a team meeting where it was discussed. Does that mean it's not actually in effect? It shows up in the Code of Conduct section of Team Dynamics so I assumed it was in effect already, but maybe not. But regardless of that, I think not being able to fine the player manually from the Inbox item is still a bug.
  7. Done; opened a thread in "Dynamics, Interactions, etc." bugs forum and uploaded save from just before I selected the discipline.
  8. I had a player miss training (although the inbox notification also says he was absent without leave, and as those are different categories in the Code of Conduct, I'm not actually sure which he violated). Okay, fair enough, 1/2 week fine per the code of conduct, only it doesn't register. And I can't do it via the player interface, I assume because he is actually absent. Am I missing something or is this just a bug (and why oh why is there not a button to "Discipline per code of conduct" instead of making me look up the appropriate fine)?

  10. And there it is right in the competition rules; if it had been anywhere but England I would have looked at the rules but I (wrongly) assumed I knew England well enough, despite not following League 1 or living in England:
  11. Ah, so that's it. Cheers, I figured it was something I was missing or there would have been complaints all over the forum.
  12. I just realized my opponent had made their fourth sub in the match, which means the 2020-21 Covid rules allowing 5 subs are in place for League 1. However, I can't make any subs past my third. Am I missing something obvious or is this a known issue? Peterborough's team during the match (4 players subbed): My team (Wigan) during the match (unable to make fourth sub):
