How cool would it be if you were out of work in-game or your team weren't playing that weekend, and you were invited to be a guest on the panel of Soccer Saturday or if necessary an unbranded equivalent. Admittedly this would merely be an aesthetic addition, you would watch your designated games and comment on it. Like I said, it might not add anything to the game, unless you could somehow tap players up that you were interested in, or unsettle precarious managers at jobs you wanted.

As long as you can code it to not allow comments like Richard Keys's :D

I'm sorry but I am completely against this kind of thing, the press conferences are tiresome enough, the last thing I want added is more generic questions/interviews. I suppose if something like this were added I wouldn't mind as long as I could turn it off.

Maybe something like an invite and you can say no if you don't want to do them?

I always wanted to have indoor tournaments in FM series :) I wish they could do some kinda thing.

I'd like to be able to drive the team bus to away games.

It would give you a chance to scout players aswell. Good idea IMO.

Would help you build up relationships with players and managers while unemployed. Slate a players performance and then a couple of years later try to sign him, well maybe he hasn't forgotten what you had said about him

ive always thought about this, especally if you're an out of work experienced manager, give you something to do whilst waiting for a job.

also another quick point, how come you dont get fined in the epl for not doing press conferences?

It would be worth it just so you could tape up Chris Kamara's mouth with elephant tape.

I already summarise on games I'm watching where my team isn't playing... why does it need adding?

haha once the game is near perfect and i did put near i would love to see things like this added to the game and involve 3d media that doesnt involve you so you can see them talking about you it was pretty good in pro evo managment would you believe a few years back. **** game though !

Gotta admit, i facepalmed reading the OP.

Awful, awful, awful idea. Not meaning to be harsh but come on! There are so many much, much, much more important things to do than impliment Soccer Saturday!

quite enjoyed the quirks of another branded management games where this sort of thing came up in your inbox.....player A prangs player B's car and they have fallen out etc.

very much like the idea of being part of a tv panel for a match day, its got to be implemented right as some1 said the press conferences are bad enough over and over!

Alongside Champagne Charlie, Tommo, Le Tiss & Merson. Can't go wrong. :thup:

I'd much prefer them to work on making the already dreadful media interaction and player interaction far, far better before adding in new media gimmicks. and even before they done that I would prefer them to make other aspects of the game much better.

And I would require an option to throttle Merson & Thompson live on the show.

Sounds fun but seems really pointless, can't see SI even considering adding this sort of thing into the game :)

Of course I'd prefer a better media interface, but I feel this could be included.

My biggest gripes (still playing FM10), are being harassed for 'Who do I think will win World Player of the Year?' when I'm managing Bath City to a top half finish in BSS. Completely pointless. And when your AssMan makes a controversial comment / poor team-talk in a friendly, it's you that takes the flak. And of course being asked the same questions, giving the same answer 30 times a season, and still getting asked the same question next week is only just bearable.

I know I'm re-treading lots of old ground (apologies) and I don't know if anything has improved for FM11. I skipped FM08, and it looks unlikely I'll buy FM11, but I'll likely buy FM12 after a few patches have come out and it's dropped a few quid in price.

Soccer Saturday was just an example, you could be a pundit for a Champions League match or more likely a match played by an old employer etc. This could be used to maintain a well-earnt reputation with a club. If I managed Bath City for 10 years, got them into League Two before moving on to Bristol City, and Bath City were on telly against Man Utd in a televised FA Cup tie, it'd be great to be involved, and would make me feel closer to the club.

I'd like to be able to put the cones out for training in an entertaining mini game, with player power ups for getting all the cones out in the right place. Once you got enough bonus points you should be allowed to get Messi on a free transfer.

I'd also like to be able to set the price of hot dogs on matchday, how much sugar goes in the fizzy drinks and what colour seats are used in the dugout.

i like this idea, mainly so i could do this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H8gKmQ6Hrro

I know everyones seen it but it never gets old....

I do this already. It doesn't need to be implemented into the game, anyone can do this at any time - just re-enact it yourself! I have goal updates on during my 3d matches, and I'm always saying out loud "Now off to Carrow Road, 2nd goal of the game but who to Tony Cottee?" or "Sending off at Evesham..." - "Unbelievable Jeff!"

If I've got the time I also read out the final scores from around the country in the voice of Alan Lambourne... :o :D :cool:

I suspect some people aren't taking this thread seriously.

Nah, sorry, don't like the idea. You'll be asking for "roasting" simulations for the evening after the match next! Teehee

While the soccer Saturday idea may not be the best in it's current form, have thought it would be good for some players to go into the media when they retire, those with certain personality/media attributes, eg outspoken. At least the 'I' when predicting the result of a game in the pre-match screen could be attributed to an ex-player, rather than an anonymous source from BBC Cumbria. Mere window-dressing, but surely not that difficult and adds an extra level of realism. Similarly ex-players becoming agents??

E.g. I'm in 2030 and Jermaine Beckford is working for BBC Sport & Matt Taylor is representing A.Newgen...

Would love this just so I could turn up on gameday and punch Phil Thompson clean in the face.

You would get away with it :D unless you then said some verbal abuse and because of that you get big fine.

Does anyone else imagine what the Soccer Saturday team would be saying if your game was real?

For some reason, my first instinct is to have Merse commentating on it.

Or sometimes Windass if I don't quite understand whats happened.

"I dunno Jeff... I was-I was just eating this pasteh, and then summun got sent off, and thur was a goal Jeff, an it's a cracken game Jeff."

I raised this idea here (http://community.sigames.com/showthread.php/256263-Post-retirement-plans).

Not popular, it seems. :/
