i would this this feature added it would be great to have the choice to start a carrer as either a manager or owner.


being an owner would be great i think it would take the game to another level there no loss in trying it out. football is big today with owners being in the spotlight more.

No, because it would be really boring.

Day 1, hire a manager, set a transfer budget.
Days 2-365, do nothing.
Day 366, set a transfer budget.
etc.

would need to be able to be owner/manager

I think it would be better to be a manager for awhile, spend your earnings on a small team and take it to sucess
maybe then buy a bigger club etc.

The 2 that have voted yes are probably happy for it to be included in 20012, but don't want it next year!

whoever the clowns are who voted for it to be in for 2012, most likely want the ability to spend your managerial wages also and lets not forget the option to have different hardness levels (easy, medium, hard) :D

Eugene Tyson

I've had this idea before.

But this is how I always saw it work.

You are a manager and you make earnings. So you have a career that spans say 40 seasons. And you accumulate wealth. Then at the end of your career you have the choice to RESIGN and then you can use your accumulated wealth to purchase a club within your accumulated wealth.

After you buy the club you enter the game as a new manager, young and fresh, but your club is owned by your former self.


This could mean that I end up buying say a club and they have a bit of wealth due to new owners. And you as a fresh young manager can use this wealth.



I've had games before that I get to 100 years of age. Which is not realisitic. I'd like to be able to Resign and add a new manager, but there is no reason why I can't use my accumulated wealth to purchase a club. This would only mean that the wealth I've built up is injected into a club and you get to start a new career.

Yeh but the point in doing it my way is that it would encourage career games. Where someone actually manages until they are 70 years of age. Or when they have enough wealth to buy a club they like.

Then when they retire - the clubs chairman is your former self with your profile attributes. And you start as a new manager at the club you love which has new investors and a little more cash to splash.

I think it's a novell ideal.

well in support of the OP...

Barry Fry - Peterborough

but I'm not sure I'd like it... I have thought it would be nice to earn boatloads as a manager and then buy a club and owner/manage them (perhaps not on a Michael Knighton @ Carlisle level though - I don't know any aliens for one ;) )

I sometimes think that I'd like to be able to bet a few quid on games too, especially when my team are 30/1 to win away from home (and we win 1-0 :p )

BUT

I'd rather we didn't get any new features in FM12 - just tweaks/improvements to the current features would suffice (IMHO)

And do what exactly? The manager in FM already controls wages, staff and transfers. So what's left to do apart from hire a manager, and occasionally say yes or no to their requests?

You wouldn't control match decisions, you wouldn't be involved in tactics etc.

Basically, FM already allows you to do the interesting aspects that a chairman deals with (at the expense of realism I might add), so I honestly cannot see any reason why a "Be A Chairman" feature should be added in this series. If you want to build your own stadium and have a shedload of useless gimmicks thrown at you, FIFA Manager is in your local gaming shops bargain bin as we speak.

Not an owner but maybe a sort of director of football responsible for transfers, contracts maybe even choice of coaching staff. It seems that role is more popular in Italy, holland, Spain, Germany. I think that could be a good addition to FM.

One thing I would like, is if the team you put as your favourite side ever enter financial trouble you can give them money. Various people have done discreet things for the clubs of their choice in the past, managers more rarely but thats because in the past managers have been paid much, much less. However, if Aberdeen were in need of a few grand to stave of administration I think Ferguson would put his hand in his pocket to stump it up.

I'd love more depth added to ownership structures, boards, chairmen, etc., if only for making the simulation of that side of the game more realistic, but not at the expense of other features of the game. It's probably best if they keep manager as the only playable job, though.

Come on, I think you're a bit hard on those who would like to see this option, there are quite a few of them considering how often these kind of threads are created. What would you lose if this was actually implemented? You wouldn't have to use it. You could say that the development time could be invested elsewhere but come on, how many features are there that you never use? It won't make that big a difference but it would add something to the game for those who want this feature.

Watching matches would be a poor second best to actually managing. My main FM11 save is with England, so I watch a load of matches to get an idea how the young players are doing. I tend to get bored if there isn't an English player doing well, and leave at half time. I think I'd get bored even quicker if I wasn't going to do anything with the information I received.

As for board meetings, I really can't see this being exciting enough to string a game together.

I used to support this idea, but as soon as I realised how little there is to do, I stopped supporting it. I remember once pushing someone on what features would be included, and he suggested "doing the paperwork".

I'd like there to be an addition in 2012 for the role of stadium car parking manager.

You have to make sure that the car park is nice and clean before the match, then you can watch the match, then you have to make sure that the car park is nice and clean when everyone leaves. Sometimes you might have to hire/fire some car park attendants and raise the price of parking every now and then. And you would also have to make sure that the bronze plaque in the chairman's parking space is nice and shiny so everyone can see his name. And you would have to think of the best place to locate the burger van.

I think this would really add to the game and I'm surprised it hasn't been implemented yet.

I'm not stupid, I have a job and go to meetings already. I don't want to do this in a game because meetings are boring. How exactly do you envisage these meetings going anyway?

Would you really watch all the games? I would also find that frustrating because I have no control over the proceedings.

I'm sure this type of game would be a novelty at first, but people will get bored quickly because there really isn't much that can be done with it.

Don't really see the point. Some of the older management games from yesteryear worked like this. They were rubbish. I'd much prefer SI concentrated on other things that would make the core point of the game, management, better. Plus, anyone who buys a club just to manage a team is a tool.

29-12-2010, 02:47
I do, because I have made this happen on editor before, although it took a while to set up, it was a really fun option in the game, and I loved building a club from scratch.

However, I don't, because the realism factor will drop considerably. It is unheard of for an entirely new team to be created in this day and age.
Also you would have to delete teams, or move them down in the league system to make the leagues work, as you cannot have more than 24 teams in and npower division and 20 in the prem. So a team from each league would need to go down a division, depending on which league the new club are to start in.

All in all, i think this is a nice feature for an experimental player, but it is hassle for the creators which will waste time for improvements of the proper game. This one should be left to the editors if the so wish to do this :)

No. It's called Football Manager for a reason. As an owner, you'd have diddly squat to do in the game. You'd be bored to tears within 5 minutes. Owner/manager? No. That's happened how often in real life? Once? Twice? No more than a small handful of times I'm sure. Absolute no no for me.

This is a management simulation not an owners simiulation so I cant see how this would work. What would you do as owner, attend board meetings, watch the games from the directors box go bankrupt - not for me fella

WoGiTaLiA
29-12-2010, 12:56
I love the idea but it would be a completely different game and really isn't something that can be added on top of the current game.

Essentially a "Football Owner" game would require the same basic game only it would be the managers and other staff that would have to act as the players. As it stands the stats of a manager have next to no affect on the game, your own stats seem to be remarkably random as to what they show and the other managers seem to do no better or worse dependent on their stats.

For this to work you would be putting a large chunk of the game into picking the manager and the results would be almost entirely dependent on them, as an owner you could influence managers to purchase certain players but in the end it would come down to veto powers and that is about it if your manager is no good.

If it could be well made it could be a great game as the owner is involved in a lot of things, you could still watch the games(lets be honest here, that is 95% of what you do IN game as a manager anyway so that side of it wouldn't change, you'd certainly have the stadium issues but this would be a complex part of an ownership game but is almost irrelevant as a manager, picking a manager would be a big deal but realistically would be something you hope to do maybe every 10 seasons and the manager would be in charge of the vast majority of other staff hires. Other things involved would be seeking sponsorships and the activities related to that, setting up feeder/parent club relationships.

Basically owner mode could be a great separate game but is just so separated from what is currently in Football Manager and how it is designed that it makes no sense to try and interweave it, it is about as loosely related as if you tried to weave being an individual player into it at the other end, sure there are parts of that being able to work in place but the vast majority of it is lacking.

Just my thoughts on it, the idea itself is not a stupid or invalid idea but the reality is that it is just not possible as the game is currently created, especially if it is to run at the same time as the management aspects.

I do like the merits of the idea suggested above that you should be able to buy a club with your earnings and retire to become the chairman of that club. That is a cool idea that would take very little time to implement into the game, you already have the takeovers, it would just be a case of using your wealth which is also tracked to dictate the status change of the club you takeover. Making it be a forced resignation removes any other issues that come up.

No you're missing the point.

You retire and you put your entire career savings into another club.

So say for example you're finishing up playing a career game and you're manager at say Espanyol. And you reach 75 years of age or something. Then you hit the RETIRE button.

At which point you're asked which club you'd like to invest your cash into (your entire career savings).

Then you add a Manager and take over that club. Thus that club having a wealth of money from your previous career. But you start as a new manager.

You click on the clubs profile and the chairman would be your former self.

But you still be manager, just the career money you've built up is invested into the club you've taken over.

The last occasion I can remember (though I'm sure there's other examples people may offer), was Ron Noades at Brentford, chairman and manager of the team for a while? Some time ago that though, right?

Although perhaps a "novelty" idea, I don't really think it would have much of a place in FM. Personal opinion of course.

The last occasion I can remember (though I'm sure there's other examples people may offer), was Ron Noades at Brentford, chairman and manager of the team for a while? Some time ago that though, right?

Although perhaps a "novelty" idea, I don't really think it would have much of a place in FM. Personal opinion of course.
Niall Quinn was briefly chairman (though not owner- more Bruce Buck than Roman Abramovitch) and manager at Sunderland, before realising he couldn't manage, sacking himself and appointing Roy Keane.

No you're missing the point.

You retire and you put your entire career savings into another club.

So say for example you're finishing up playing a career game and you're manager at say Espanyol. And you reach 75 years of age or something. Then you hit the RETIRE button.

At which point you're asked which club you'd like to invest your cash into (your entire career savings).

Then you add a Manager and take over that club. Thus that club having a wealth of money from your previous career. But you start as a new manager.

You click on the clubs profile and the chairman would be your former self.

But you still be manager, just the career money you've built up is invested into the club you've taken over.
The problem with that is that most football managers, if not all, don't earn enough to buy the football club they are working for, let alone invest in it once they had purchased it. Look at it this way- Mourinho earns 100k a week (for example) and Real Madrid pay total wages of 1.5m a week (again, just say). That means Mourinho would need to work for 15 years to cover the wage bill for 1 year, and somehow not spend any money for 15 years, which isn't realistic. There wouldn't be any funds for transfers beyond player sales, as the vast majority of football clubs run at a loss, and most of those that don't, simply don't spend much money. It's inevitably going to be a bad move to make yourself chairman, unless you're prepared to invest in and subsequently manage a club much further down the league chain and then see your chairman step aside when you get promoted.

If you're that desperate, use the "make me chairman" file to make it likely that a chairman of your chosen name will take over the club in the future.

It's just for a bit of fun. Afterall you do accumulate wealth in the game. Why not put it to use in investing in a club once you reach a certain age? Granted it doesn't happen too often or if at all; but what would be the harm in having a bit of fun by investing in a club?

No, he quite clearly said that the manager 'controls' the wage budgets. Didn't mention anything about setting them.

thats the thing he does not control them the owner controls how much he can get ect if any.

The chairman decides what the budget will be, this is 'setting the budget' and is decided based upon the predicted turnover of the club.
The manager decides how to spend this budget, hence 'controlling the budget'.

I've said no, mostly not because it's such a bad idea. More so, that SI should concentrate on getting the game right, rather than adding another in-depth level. This years game is only mediocre, and needs a lot of work to be even on a par with FM10, let alone improve on it.

So, basically, get the basics right, then think about other options.
