    An add-on "Football Chairman" game, to be honest - so you can run the club.

    Note the word "add-on" before I get the "It's Football Manager you idiot" replies - I know that, and have made the same argument myself - doesn't mean I wouldn't like to be able to play it under the right circumstances with a similar engine.

    would be interesting but surely limited in what you can actual do?

    host charity events, arrange board meetings, sign sponsors? hire and fire managers?

    Team and player reps are already flexible. League reputation doesn't need to be tbh. All it does is stop a team becoming bigger than they could be IRL.

    I don't think you've actually thought about it tbh. There would be next to nothing to do that would be worthy of being in a game. Hiring and firing managers would be good the first time, rubbish from then on. Setting budgets would be rubbish, as you'd just give the most you could due to not having real life monetary interests.

    It desperately needs to be.

    It is probably the most important feature still missing from the game and should be a priority for the next version.

    For me the 1 thing that would be a dream in this game would be a 3D engine similar to that of EA Sports Fifa 10. FM has it all but a top nothc 3D engine would put it into legendary status in the video game world.

    You walking on thin ice saying that! Be prepared for people saying things "FM has never been about the graphics" or "its a spreadsheet based game", both of which, as selling points, wouldn't shift many copies really

    An AI with that actually has the ability to manage the players it has in it's squad properly. In other words, the AI manager actually starts bringing it's better youngsters through to the first team and starts phasing out it's older players, or to buy players they actually need, or actually buy players in the first place. There are far too few AI transfers in the game, and far too many seem to be the transfers of goalies that just aren't needed.

    I'm throwing my hat into the dynamic league rep ring though having a set range would seem to be the best thing, and would avoid the (very unlikely anyway) extreme situations used to argue against it.

    no seriously...having an option where you could have a proper 1-1 with an unhappy player instead of the usual media route or being able to have a 'conference' so to speak with your team if they getting a series of results or playing porly, dont know how hard that would be to implement but my guess is it would probably take alot to put it in the game

    i think dynamic league reputation , as al ot of people of mentioned here is something that should be thought about, think about, the new teams in the champions league this season that no one had ever heard of, their leagues rep has most likely gone up from having teams in the champ league, and look at the championship as-well, i know its already very well thought of but having teams like newcastle and middlesbrough in their would shawly put its rep up even by just a little bit

    Even the Fifa Manager graphics combined witht he FM match engine would be immense, the Fifa manager graphics are only as good as ps2 graphics but i makes it look amazing for a management game

    I do have FIFA and I play it, but the manager mode is an absolute farce on that game. As much as I love the gameplay and graphics I usuaully end spending an hour so on it and then lose interest and fire up FM. I am not saying I want FM to be like FIFA, I just wish it could create some of the atmosphere it has.

    remain the same, classic manager simulation game i hope they will not go too far with the 3d graphic, and keep the option to view matches 2d and only commentary

    there are some features that might be improved or added, but the main thing is the fact that fm is the most realistic football manager on the market, so keep up the good work lads

    The option to not be myself in the game as its unrealstic that some random bloke gets the man utd job. I have to make up stories in my head to justify why I've got the job. I would like the option to play the game as the current manager of a team.

    Dynamic league reputation and faster increasing/decreasing club reputation.

    And i'd like to be able to set up new teams within the club. Let's say if i have too many players i could start a 3rd team, so everyone gets match experience. Or just a team where I put all players in that i want to sell. Or a team that starts in another country like Ajax Cape Town.. just love the idea.

    At the moment, league reputation stays the same however successful you are if managing in that league. This means it is very difficult to improve a lot.

    However, if it were dynamic, it would increase as clubs did well, meaning smaller countries could start doing better.

    Although technically it wouldn't be a strictly Football Management game anymore what I would LOVE to see would be to live the life of a created player from youth level to play through a career until you choose to retire and then after you retire you become a manager. Much like many other managers and it would make previous experience really mean something.

    How this would be implemented I would have no clue. I know its not going to happen but personally thats just something I would LOVE to see in a game. Basically FIFA Be A Pro cept longer and more involved then to FM in a seamless transition.

    Without this it means that if you become the most successful & richest club in the world, but play in the Romanian league your player's will always want to move to a "Bigger club".

    Dynamic league reputation for sure.

    I would also like to have more personality as a manager, and perhaps some sort of back-story so I don't start the game as a clean slate. Perhaps a pre-game questionnaire type affair, where you are asked about formations, approach to finances, previous playing career, favourite players as well as clubs, personality type questions?

    Even though this idea will get shot down by a lot of people, I'd love the idea of this.

    Even if it was simple and fairly quick, I'd still be a fan. For example, you could create yourself as a youngster in the youth academy of your local team (or a free agent if you're >20), and then the game flies through season after season, with maybe 10 or so career defining decisions that you have to make each year (i.e. decide whether to accept/deny contract offers, take certain injuries cautiously or force yourself to play through it etc.). This way you could build up a personality behind your 'character' and change the course of your career and possibly some statistics.

    This way when you eventually become a manager after you retire (chosen at any point in the game) you would already have a list of favored personnel, you would already have rivalries, and you'd already have a personality in the game. As for the actual playing, you could either watch every one of your games, or just run a holiday mode that 'jumps out' every time you need to make a decision.

    It'd be kind of like Spore, except, good.

    With the addition of the league editor, in terms of depth, I think FM is really getting there. Each edition will bring further 'polishing' but it's substantially almost all it could be IMO.

    Therefore, all that remains to add to what is already there, is to continue improving the animations. It would be nice if they were as advanced as FIFA (even nicer if I had a super-computer to use them) without taking anything away from FM's greatest strengths. I trust, year on year, the animations will creep forward.

    I do think you should have a say about the stadiums, to plan it out, but i dont think its a big deal yet. because of the 3d matches you dont really see much of the stadiums do you, so maybe when the matches are abit better.

    Some interesting and neat ideas there. Dugout view would be fantastic. Also viewing the substitutes close on and seeing them warm up could be neat as well. But what I really would like is something along the lines of LMA manager if anyone remembers. The only feature I liked of that game is the way you start building/re-building your stadium. It seemed so fun and for 1 thing, I would definitely have that.

    I'd like the "personal instruction overriding the tactic" thing that I've suggested for years and we have recently discussed in a topic. And a more realistic manager transfer market in which you get more offers and at a better time of the year, allowing for more flexibility in planning your next team. And there are different ways to leave your current club.

    Oh, and I like the idea of playing as real managers. I, too, hate the fact that I can't take part in the narrative continuum of real football.

    Ya im lovin this idea,
    Something like a cross between Pro-Evo's Become a Legend (I think thats the name) and FM would be amazing. Its a long way off but with the introduction last year of the 3-D match engine, i like to think we're a step closer.

    More handbags and pushing and shoving which have long term effects on the relationship between players and tend to errupt in future meetings.

    Also, more critical mistakes by referees that can be seen in action replays. That would add a lot more realism to the game.

    Oh! ... and for suprise visitors at work (or home),a predefined wildkey (say F12) that, when pressed will immediately transfer your screen to a screen of your choice such as an intricate excel spreadsheet or a your regular email inbox or Java or C++ or whatever you should be doing instead of playing FM

    A loan system that works when you are a big club- loads of potentially great youngsters and no-one EVER tries to loan them. Very weird.

    Dynamic league reputation, obviously.

    Short-term games are alright but long-term games not fun at all unless you play in England, Spain or Italy...

    Getting a Knighthood for your dedication and development of football in England, or for just winning the world cup as an English/British manager. As I'm not sure if non-British citizens can be knighted? Anybody know?

    Or an piece of software that ships with the game that does the work you're supposed to be doing while you play FM

    I know for sure that a few Canadians have been knighted. I am pretty sure though that they have to be from the commonwealth and gain British citizenship.

    when you go to the board of directors to ask for extra transfer funds, i would like to be able to tell them exactly how much i want. they then be more flexible with you.

    example. i am currently with southampton. got promoted to the ccc but i had no transfer money available, yet i was tracking a wonderkid and his fee was a thousand quid. a lousy thousand. i am sure the board would be flexible if i could ask for a lousy thousand quid.

    i ended up buying him for two thousand quid but over 6 months.
