  1. Thanks for this tip! The videos are very detailed and insightful for an amateur like me. It's a lot of information to take in and absorb, which is only a good thing. This is what I have been experiencing (or, what I think is happening) during my testing. I've recently kind of abandoned the idea for the time being, due to squad changes, and lack of any decent Carrilero's. I'll still post what I came up with eventually and maybe give it a full test in a new save.
  2. Hi @herne79, Thanks for the quick response, much appreciated. Is it acceptable to post a screenshot of the tactic with the TI/PI's in this thread, along with reasoning, once I've settled on what I think could work?
  3. Hello, My question: is it tactically sound to be using 2 x Carrilero next to each other in a two-man Diamond midfield? I'm playing around with some tactical ideas in my head, and this one I need a little help from more experienced FM players. If it helps, the tactic I'm toying around with is a narrow-strikerless 4-1-2-3, with a DM/Su behind the midfield two. Here's the in-game description of the role, and I'm worried I'm taking the part in bold a little too literally. "The Carrilero – or “Shuttler” – is a supporting role more often than not utilised as part of a midfield three, or as two central midfielders in a diamond midfield. It is the job of these shuttlers to cover lateral areas of the pitch and link the defensive midfield area with the attacking midfield area. This is what separates the Carrileros from a Box-To-Box Midfielder, as they are not expected to shuttle between boxes, but merely between lines of the midfield. The role is that of a runner but also a water carrier for the team, should the team need it." I've used the search function to try find an answer to my question, but to no avail.
  4. Thanks for the update, appreciated! One short-term focus is what I have been doing in the meantime - but it's very limiting.
  5. As someone who is also managing Harrogate Town, and currently struggling in the first season of the Championship, I found this to be an interesting thread. Nice work!
  6. Neil, Thank you for the quick response, especially over the holiday period. I look forward to a response.
  7. Hello, I've been experiencing crash dumps when doing short-term scouting. It usually happens the moment I confirm the 2nd focus. I've used this function before with no issues; and I'm only just using the feature again now after around 5 seasons. Please can you identify a fix as soon as possible. I have already installed the latest drivers on my graphic cards, verified the save game file within Steam, and also emptied the cache. Attached is the .dmp file. Thanks!
