    Trials
    Similar to the trial open days, but at the start of the season players who don't have a contract should take part in a match ,effectively a trial game, where all managers, scouts, coaches etc can 'view' the game.
    They can then decide to buy or take a player on trial for a extended period.
    Not sure but i think lower league clubs are able to watch Premiership players who have been released from their club, via the PFA.
    Media
    Even though the media side of the game is fine it can be improved.
    More local media involvement as usually they are more likely to create pressure than the national media.
    Media awards - North Eastern Writers PLayer of the Year etc.
    Player Interation
    More training ground bust ups when things are going wrong at the club "X dislikes Y" "X demands transfer".
    For foreign players, they could "complain" to their own press, "Marca" like Luque or Reyes about the manager or speak about reported interest from their own country. Ths would lead to the manager having to have meeting with the player.
    The manager and chairman should have monthly meetings to discuss transfers money for the transfer window and future developments.
    An AGM which would be like a news item every year stating how the club has done financially (using the rich list to say if they have improved or decreased), reasons for this and future investments (if a takeover is in the process or there are rumours, a statement would be released.

    I'd like the option of instead creating a new manager, just simply taking on the role of a real life manager, e.g. if I chose Arsene Wenger, I'd be managing Arsenal.

    I have a few ideas - they are really only cosmetic, but I would like to see them in the game as it's the little things that make the game really cool IMO.

    Players Returning

    - I'd like to see the match commentary make some comment if a player scores against his old club eg "and Darius Vassell has scored against his old club!!"

    - If the player started at my club but never played a game, maybe the commentary could say something like "and Kevin Phillips scores against the club that released him as a teenager!!" or words to that effect

    - I think the media should make a comment if I resign a new player, particularly if the player has a high rep or the fans really love him. For example "Return of The Messiah! Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is hoping to recapture old glories having resigned Patrick Vieira from Juventus. Arsenal fans are said to be delighted at the return of one of their heroes and are praising Wenger for signing him."

    Records

    - I would like to see record transfer fees mentioned in media items, for example "Chelsea have today smashed the world record transfer fee, splashing out £49 million for Internazionale's Adriano. This fee is £5 million more for the previous record fee which was the £45 million Real Madrid paid to Juventus for former France international Zinedine Zidane."

    - Additionally, I'd like to see individual club transfer records mentioned. This used to be in one of the old SI games, 97/98 I think and I'd like to see them back with the relevant media item: "Leon Knight today became the most expensive player in Gillingham's history when Gills manager Ronnie Jepson paid Swansea £825,000 for the player's services. The previous record, which had stood for an incredible nine years, was for Carl Asaba who joined the Gills in a transfer worth £650,000 from Reading in 1998."

    - More media items when a player is coming up to a goal/appearance/clean sheet record (both overall totals and seasonal), and these records to be kept in the game's database both on an individual club level, a league level and a world level. So you could have "Man United's Wayne Rooney will have one eye on the club's goalscoring charts when he faces Aston Villa today. Rooney, 32, is just two goals behind Man United legend Sir Bobby Charlton's all-time record of 199 league goals for the club." Or you could have "David Villa is closing in on Raul's record for most league goals in a season. Valencia striker David Villa is just one goal behind Real Madrid legend Raul's tally of 29 goals in the 2001/02 season." Or you could have "Scott Carson could make history today if he manages to keep a clean sheet in Liverpool's match against Rock Bottom Watford. Carson is just 56 minutes away from beating the current world record of 1,259 minutes without conceding a goal."

    Player & Club Descriptions

    - Currently, clubs are described as "surprise package" or "recently relegated" or a choice of others. I'd also like to see included "runaway leaders", "rock bottom", "giant killers", "<league name> high fliers", "struggling", "<league name> strugglers" "world champions" (International) and "European champions" (International). I like the idea of the pre-match review saying: "Runaway leaders Chelsea take on Premiership strugglers Middlesborough today", or "world champions Italy face Scotland in the Group C clash this evening".

    - I'd just like to see box-to-box midfielder added.

    I could go on, but I'm sure you're all bored by now!! I would like to see the game's media model updated though to better reflect the huge amount of difference in media involvement between managing in the Premiership and managing in the lower leagues. Also the higher the rep of your club, the more media involvement you have. E.g. if I manage Hibernian in Scotland, and then take over Celtic or Rangers I should notice the huge amount of extra media work I have to do. For those who don't like it, they can set their assistant to deal with the media (or at least a certain percentage of the media work).

    Just my few ideas.

    I'd like to see the feature of player dislikes. Two players in the team don'r gwet on with each other and when played in the same team rarely pass to each other. What will the manager do? etc.

    Not sure if it has been said, but I would like a "Partnership" feature. This would apply to Central Defenders, Central Midfielders and Strikers. Once a striker has played alongside another one, they will get a partnership rating. They can improve this partnership by working at it in training or being good friends etc ...

    E.G. In real life, Germany's Lukas Podolski and Miroslav Klose, would have a bad partnership rating because they don't work too well with each other. But Colchesters pairing of Chris Iwulemo and Jamie Cureton would have a very high rating because their partnership is very good and understanding.

    This could go in every players profile as a tab similar to the personal and transfer tabs that are already there.

    I also agree with the newspaper idea for finding whats going on in all leagues, it could be displayed as a magazine like MATCH or SHOOT.

    I would love to see more African leagues.

    When I set up a game I usually make several teams in a particular region playable. So I can take jobs in, say, the UK, then Ireland, then Scotland, then Wales.

    Can't do that if you're playing in South Africa.

    With a growing number of the world's top players coming from African countries, it's about time more African leagues were present in the game. Nigeria. Ghana. Cameroon.

    If any of you African guys out there think you know football, it's time to step up and become a researcher for SI!

    Scout reports on your own players.
    I like most of your suggestions, davidbowie, and this is one of the best yet, and something I've been meaning to mention.

    It is often very difficult to guess at the PA of your youngsters, as often there will be people with a PA that is quite low, but a CA that is quite high. And likewise, there are youngsters that have a PA that is quite high, but a CA that is quite low.

    So normally, if you want to find out about a player, you send a scout to watch them a few times and you find out (for example) "Peter Green reckons that John Hartson is the strongest striker in the squad but Sturridge isn't far from that standard". "Peter Green thinks Sturridge has the potential to be a lot better than John Hartson's current level of ability" e.t.c, and you can get even more detail if you persist with the scouting.

    However, with your own players, all you have is the Training>Overview Coach Report pane (for example: "Nigel Pearson reckons young striker Stefan Morrison is a decent member of our squad"), and that seems to be grossly inaccurate also, with the vast majority of players, from my reserves to my youngsters, being classed as "a decent member of our squad", even though Stefan Morrison is quite awful.

    Basically, if a player is playing for you, you are actually at a disadvantage with regards to finding out information (especially with regards to PA) about him. What I would suggest, as davidbowie did, would be the ability to have scout report-style reports on him, except possibly from the Training>Overview page, where the almost entirely-useless "Coach Report" information is. It could replace that, or even have a separate panel, where your coaches give you information about the player.

    Because currently the only real way to see how promising your players are is to save the game, then create a few new managers, get their scouts on your players, then read up, before re-loading the game again.

    Surely you should know more about your own players than other teams potentially can?

    I'm happy with the vast majority of FM07, but this is just one oversight which isn't really too big a thing seeing how these scout reports are new, but it surely shouldn't take too much coding to include the ability to "look at" your own players?

    i wanna see comparions using the overview button. i think the overview button is way cool. so comparing using them you can really see the differences between the two players.

    I suggested this before but in a thread that seems to have drowned.

    I reckon when we go on holiday we should be able to choose to do a private scouting mission. Choose a destination(country/continent) and the length of time you intend to holiday for, then the game would give you a list of the games that are being played in the time your there. You could then select the games you want to view and do your own scouting.
    This may not be needed for managing a high reputation club that can scout everywhere, but it could be for managers who can't scout outside their own club or continent.

    This could also be a way of doing something with your own wages, not that I care about that but I've seen a few people wanting to do something with their own money in the game.

    Yes. Normally, when negotiating a new contract, I try to negotiate the lowest possible wages for myself, so as not to take away finances from my club when it isn't being used for anything at all. Your own salary may as well be money being poured onto the ground once a week, so I try to make it as low as possible. This would be a way to use it without introducing trivial, un-necessary things like Strip Club mode.

    When you start the game you have to be an assistant manager and you have to prove yourself with the Youth or reserve leagues with no transfers and your manager snapping any promising players up from you and you can buy a lower league plug-in sorta patch thingy thay enables you to play leagues such as the rymans, istmians and the southern premier?

    As far as im aware manager wages dont take away from finances ,just a higher one increases your reputation. I think this is what happens

    1.Assistant manager giving you tactical advise whilst in game

    i.e. Player X should be asked to cover player Y as the opposition/player P is very strong in 'that' area
    we should play very deep due to the pace of say Henry and our lack of pace at the back

    2.Youngsters learning some technical stuff as well when under tutoring

    i.e. Zigic should teach youngsters to head the ball like him

    3.Having option of no tackling

    4.the assistant manager whilst managing under18s and reserves game should do a bit of scouting

    5.The board should be willing to review top wage for a player if the wages are lower than the wage budget

    i.e.my wage budget was 110k.i was paying 75k in wages.my top player wanted 20k as his wage whilst my top wage was 11k.the board should allow me to offer him 20k

    6.Team talks esp. for away games.

    i.e. my team leading 2-0 conceded 3 goals in 2nd half b/c it was an away game and my teamtalk of pleased made them very complacent[we were leadin fairly too].Should hv been 'Pleased but dont concede'

    Dunno if they have been mentioned before but here are some ideas:

    1) Give substitutions personal instructions before they go on. When in your tactics and you select a sub to come on, a drop down list could appear(like pre/half/post match comments) beside the sub with comments like "You could turn this match for us" etc.

    2)Perhaps comments during games could be made aswell? Managers constantly shout instructions praise and rollickings at players during games.

    3) An option to have private meetings with your players. Making comments through the media is great but as manager you shouldnt have to air your dirty laundry in public. The current interaction module is a very good idea but some new additions to it would be great. For example, If you arent happy with a players form you shouldnt have to spout it all over the media when a private chat would be more realistic and professional. Players could also ask for a private chat with you aswell if they are unhappy with their contract or want more first team action etc.

    4) Players dont always get on in game(as it should be) so perhaps an option as manager to try and get these players to resolve their problems. It could have positive results, where the players begin to like each other or negative results, where their relationship is unrepairable. This idea could be put in as part of the private meetings idea as another option because again, these are the sorts of problems that for the most part the public never see or hear, what happens in the dressing room stays there.

    Although this thread is quite jocular, there are afew things I would like to see.

    1. Scottish League teams often take players on trial and play them in competitive games, yet this seldom happens in gameplay.
    2. Different clubs should have different chants.
    3. All Premiership and Scottish League Clubs should have their badges uploaded.
    4. Postponements should be added.
    5. Abandonements should be added.
    6. It should be possible for a player to die.
    7. Clubs should be able to play friendlies with countries.

    I'd like to see better training reports, for example, you assistant manager would not only tell you who has and hasn't trained well but would also make suggestions on particular areas of a player's game that needs improving and maybe recommend a training schedule for this.

    Another thing I feel should be introduced is an extra clause when selling players. IRL Wayne Rooney recently signed a contract extension which triggered a payment of £1.5m to Everton from Man Utd as part of his transfer deal. I feel this would be great seeing as too often we miss out on the benefit of putting a sell-on clause into a deal because they continually sign extensions at their new club and eventually are either released or are snapped up on a bosman. This would be a great way to get some more cash out of a club after a player has been sold. Thoughts?

    Have mentioned this in a new topic but thought I should add it to this thread as well.

    Ok on to my idea on how to improve a club's budget. For the last few versions You are given a budget and you can't spend more than this. Although in principle this is a good idea I feel it has limitations.

    Every club wants success and so shouldn't be limited to a strict budget and the ability to go over the budget and bring in extra players can make a big difference from avoiding relegation to getting into the lucrative position of champions league.

    For example, you may spend most of you budget and have say £1m left, then an amazing player who is seen as essential for your team comes available and you can buy him for £4m meaning you need to raise £3m. However, by the time you sell players and raise the £3m needed the player you wanted to buy has now gone.

    As a result of this I feel several changes need to be made.

    1. You are given a seasonal budget that you have to stick to for that season but allowances are made. For example, your budget is £10m and the season runs from 1/7/2006 - 30/6/06. You are able to overspend the £10m as long as you can recoup this amount by the end of the season. So you can spend £20m on players in August as long as you recoup £10m in January so the overall spending you made is what was budgeted ie. £10m

    2. Relate the budget to team performance. For example, you may be given a £5m transfer budget and the board expectation is to achieve a safe mid-table position. If by January you have spent £10m and are in a position where Champions League is possible the board may feel spending £10m is fine and even grant you more money to try and guarantee Champions League football.

    3. Buying players who will have a big impact on merchandise doesn't come out of your transfer budget as the money spend will be regained through merchandise sales. This could be implemented by giving each player a merchandise value. The obvious example is David Beckham.

    4. Link transfer budget to forecasted revenues and predicted success. For example, going on a cup run where success wasn't expected increases revenue and so more money is available for improving the team.

    Please keep in mind though that if you do over-spend and you do not over-achieve original expectations to suffer consequences. This can be to having no transfer budget next season or if you put the clubs' future in jeopardy financially to be sacked.

    Set Pieces still **** me off. I would like to tell the player where to stand, not who to mark as it ends up being random. A return of the positioning screen back in the old CM series when you could say where the player should be standing when the ball is in that area.

    Also. I'd like players to have permenant instructions attatched to them so you don't have to go through massive changes of everything including set pieces when you bring on a DM for a SC. Because Makelele's is going to know that he's not meant to be going up front. Just a bit time saving basically.

    I think that when you sell a player you can interact with them by saying "wish them good luck" or "I'm glad to get rid of him" etc

    How about making the squad numbers more important like if you take number 7 away from Raul, he'll be upset or if you give Number 10 to a relatively unknown player there would be reactions as well. Oh yeah and retiring numbers as well.

    To be able to have the choice to put a set amount of transfer money aside to buy a world-class player. Like Man utd have reportedly put £25m pounds a side for a expensive signing.

    More interaction between club and international managers. International managers usually try to spark up a decent working relationship with club managers for the release of their players. There is communication between both regarding the fitness of players etc

    Oh dear god no, the amount of detail needed to warrant that and make it half-decent would kill the game because you wouldnt be able to get all the players done to a realistic level. It would ruin the game

    Players shouldnt ignore their managers team talks so this aspect of the teamtalk module should be either erased or seriously played down. It is very hard to not to repeat yourself when you have a very limited choice of things to say.

    Do you honestly think Alex Ferguson would tolerate players just sitting there twiddling their thumbs while he gave last minute tactical orders???

    No he wouldnt, if he caught a player doing it they would be out of United in a heartbeat. Plus players are supposed (for the most part )to be professional and they all want to win so it would be in their best interest to pay attention to team talks.

    board room -> request youth academy
    board room -> improve youth academy

    youth academy could have a limit of no of youth players that can be there. the limit is set to its state of level. so a starter youth academy can only have 6 players and an excellent can have 30. The players at this academy could train more than the normal U18 players and could be a better place for them to develop faster.

    when a team offer to extend a loan contract to end of season the game should list on the contract offer screen what date that would be. ( or even better always show that )

    I'm in november 2009 and a swedish team have offered to extend a loan deal of one of my player. Since the swedish seasons ends in december, I'm a bit confused if the loan deal is just 1 more month or 1 full new season.

    Better financial balance

    I think the financial side of the game should be strenghtened. I know Fm doesnt want to go a way where you take over the financial part of the game as you are only supposed to be manager. But if this is not going to happen it should at least be harder to gain money, thereby avoiding 100 mill. transfers all over.
    IRL a lot of clubs in europe struggle to keep themselves alive financially. This should be seen more in the game.

    To see on the club information screen if any improvement of training / youth setup is in progress and a deadline when the improvement is done. ( just stadium expansion ).

    It's kinda annoying to request the board from time to time and they accept to improve and nothing happens.

    Hummm....

    1) Stadiums. I know this would be hard, but some sort of map of your stadium, so you can choose which bit to redevlop, name each stand ect. You could also choose designs, and have to factor in cost wiuth long term reward and your budget ect. I would really like to have a chocie of which stand to redevlop at the city ground, rarther than just being tol 'the east stand has been developed' again and again...hell that stand must now seat about 40,000 people- and the City Ground dosn't have an east stand.

    2) Stop the repeated requests from people to sign your players, ocne you've said hands off its hands off.

    3) more Chairman interaction

    4) Leave the match engine alone it's perfect, a little more commentry veriaty would be nice though. (See other peoples ideas)

    5) Recognition if someones someones brother/son or whatever.

    Contract Extension ClauseAnother thing I feel should be introduced is an extra clause when selling players. IRL Wayne Rooney recently signed a contract extension which triggered a payment of £1.5m to Everton from Man Utd as part of his transfer deal. I feel this would be great seeing as too often we miss out on the benefit of putting a sell-on clause into a deal because they continually sign extensions at their new club and eventually are either released or are snapped up on a bosman. This would be a great way to get some more cash out of a club after a player has been sold. Thoughts?
    Any thoughts on these guys?

    -To be able to see your manager pacing about the touchline during games.
    -To be able to shout orders from the touchline to a single player and shout at a player because he made a poor pass.
    -More foreign takeovers that inject money into a club.
    -Media make up pure speculation e.g. say your interested in someone who isn't on your shortlist.
    -More manager/chairman interaction
    -More manager/player interaction
    -Assistant also recommends a formation in his Team report
    -More in-depth training
    -To be able to go on training camps
    -To be able to have Warm-Up matches before a major international tournament.

    Don't think there's anything new here but here goes;

    Improve the role of the assistant manager in particular more feedback on training as suggested above. Also for them to offer opinions on formations based on your available players and possibly opposition. A Little more feedback on the tactics would be helpful.

    Ability to set a stock response to general enquiries rather than having to waste time with the same queries on the same players day after day.

    A little better choice in feeder teams? Was at Newcastle for 6 seasons and was offered all sorts of rubbish, maybe manager could make suggestion to the board?

    Tweak the selling of players, buying is the right sort of level not too easy at times but not impossible but selling even good players because you dont want them is nigh on impossible.

    More faith from the board ie when you ask for more transfer cash if you've got a good financial record and reputation just ocassionally it would be nice if they gave a more positive indication. More feedback from the board in general would be useful ie cup knock outs or wins depending on the status and finances of your club might trigger a response or a sudden consistent run of good/bad form.

    A little more variation on team talks as well, they seem to get "ignored" as the impact on the player all too often.

    I dont think theres too much wrong with this version, i'm plodding a long and have won promotions and a couple of cups (but somehow still to Real!!) but still struggling to get the tactical balance right. I'm sure it will come but as i noted above a little more guidance from your staff would be a help.

    My biggest bugbear with FM is down to the use of specific man marking in the match engine.

    I always set each of my Center Backs and Full Backs to mark a specific player, his opposite player in effect. My issue is that if the AI suddenly changers formation I can have extremes where my DL could be marking the ML which makes him sprint across the field, leaving me open on for attack on his side.

    What I want is for the game to give me an alert when this has happened, Either an option to change tactics when the AI does or a more clear notice that they have swapped tactics.

    With\without ball is going to have to come back!!!

    This is getting more and more clear to me. Why is it that now that we have the opportunity to see the whole game, where we actually see what is wrong with the tactic, there is no chance to do major adjustments. I feel that the tactics schemes are back at the system we had at CM1. I really miss the with\without ball, escpecially when I see the headless decisions from the players. Of course there are some tactics out there that will help me win every game, but what is the big deal about doing so? When I put up a tactic I put it the way I feel it would have worked out in real life. When it doesn't work in the FM engine, I really can't make myself adjust to something I find unrealistic in real life, by using one of your supertactics. It's like when you could play with 2 DC and the rest on top on CM2.. It is just too stupid...

    My point is: Get the with\without ball back. So you can make adjustments when you can SEE that the players are going into the wrong positions.

    I posted these in another thread, didnt know this existed. So, in the hope that these are noticed...

    1) The ability for managers to choose their own training, youth upgrades.

    If it is the case that facilities descriptions (e.g. “average”) cover a wide range of values, it would be very helpful to see what the improvement actually is, as at the moment we can’t tell. But it would be an excellent feature if we could determine the level of improvement. As others have said it would be silly to improve facilities by an incremental step with each upgrade when you could just build a state of the art facility from scratch (i.e. if you have average facilities but 5mn in the bank, why do you have to build slightly better average facilities before you can afford to build an excellent one?). Perhaps when we request improvements to facilities the board can present us with a range of options, with the financial costs and timescales explicitly laid out. For example, you could order a limited upgrade for a small fee, or the board could ask you if you want to spend 2mn of your transfer budget a year on building and running a youth academy, or foreign youth camps. This would give managers the choice of forgoing current transfer spending for longer term success, and give managers more control over long-term strategy.

    2) Enhanced celebrations for cup/title wins in 2D view.

    I always hate it when, after winning a cup, the match ends immediately and goes to the after-match screen. It might be a bit immature, but I would love to bask in glory a bit more, to see in the 2D view a podium wheeled out, and everybody collect their medals and then have the trophy lifted. Imagine the commentary “And there it is, Steven Gerrard lifts the European cup!” Then maybe a lap of honour, or the team going to the crowd. As the game is much harder now, I feel that if you do manage to win a trophy then more rewards for the player’s hard work would be good (rather than just have a message from the board saying “well done, now please concentrate on future successes”).

    3) Hall of fame or fan club votes for your clubs best ever teams etc.

    Seen this somewhere else in the forums, thought it was excellent idea. Maybe best players for the club, national team etc. Imagine the thrill when a player you nurtured is voted the clubs best ever left back, or best striker. Imagine being voted your clubs greatest manager!!!

    4) More manager information and feedback.

    On the manager screen, rather than just the aggregate number of cups won and games won, it would be great if you could break this down, for example individual cups won at which club, league positions. Achievements on the other hand show everything, right down to signing each individual player, which is unnecessary and perhaps this could be limited to cup wins.

    5) The ability to scout your own players as well as you can scout other players.

    Mentioned already, it does seem silly that the information you receive from your scouts on players outside the club is much worse than information you receive from your coaches on your own players. Perhaps we can ask our scouts to scout our own players, I don’t know how difficult that would be to implement.

    6) Post match press-conferences

    Seen this elsewhere, would love it to come in. Would be great to have the option of giving a team the hairdryer postmatch in the media, or criticise the opposition for playing defensively. Even say sorry to the fans!

    7) Anytime interaction with players who have a problem (slight or major).

    At smaller clubs, it seems very easy for players to get unsettled through not playing, transfer speculation etc. It would be great if you could chat to the player directly about his concerns, and not just when a media item comes up.

    8) Cup wins and other criteria counting towards board / fan approval.

    I hate it when the board gets uppity when I am not top six, despite all I have done for them. Cup successes and past successes should be considered when judging performance. If you led a team to the double and a European Cup final in a season, but came in only 4th the next season due to a spate of injuries, you wouldn’t expect the board to get itchy in real life.

    Most of mine are to do with the match engine, which I pay a lot of attention to...

    1) The amount of free kicks and especially throw ins that go directly to an opposing player is insane. A lot of the time they are thrown right to an opposing player with none of your players anywhere near them, as if they are returning the ball after it had been put out.

    2) Players attempting bizarre passes. A lot of the time I'd see a player (say a striker) collecting the ball down a flank, and then trying to play it down the line in front of him for the winger who is running behind him. Always going out or being easily collected. No player would attempt a pass like that.

    3) Players attempt long shots too often on the default "mixed" setting.

    4) Players attempt to shoot too often from free kicks from ridiculous distances/angles. Sometimes when there isn't even a wall.

    5) Two players constantly passing between each other and losing the ball happens quite often.

    6) Players do not seem aware of their own abilities and weaknesses. A player seems to have no hesitation in attempting a long shot on his "very weak" foot if play opens up for him, even if there are people to pass too. In real life players are usually very wary of attempting long shots with their weaker foot.

    7) A combination of some of my other points in that I feel the "Run With Ball" and "Try Long Shots" instructions strange. If a player is good at dribbling they should run with the ball, and if a player is good at long shots they should attempt them. They should know this themselves and it should be obvious.

    Getting away from the match engine....

    8) This might be a controversial suggestion, but I'd like to see some kind of "Potential" attribute for players. Right now it is really juts impossible to sense a potential of a player unless you scout them, and hope they are accurate. It's not like real life where you see the player in training every day and can get some kind of "feeling" if the player will be special. I don't want an exact numerical description as they are in the database. But a one word description as in "High" or "Moderate" would be welcomed by me.

    9) Player interaction. Right now, to me, it just seems... totally random. I can praise a player for his good performances and he's delighted, I can do it again 2 weeks later and all of a sudden he "Feels under pressure to perform". What changed? It just feels like a lottery now.

    10) Crazy chairman.I don't know how much this happens in real life, but your chairman splashing out £18m on a Central defender when you already have 5 that are better is very annoying. If they are going to take it into their own hands and sign someone they could at least ask for suggestions.

    Regens
    I would like to see an improvement for developing youth players. I feel a little irritable knowing that there is not a darn thing i can do about improving their potential.

    My idea
    regens should be created at the age of 11 or 12 with a potential from 0 - 100. The potential of these players can then be improved by your youth system. ie top youth academy will drastically improve a kids potential compared to having no facilities. employing a 'head of youth department', staff member can also have an influence on potential. Then at age 15-16. You can choose to either promote them too your under 18s or release them. After you have promoted them their attributes are revealed. From this point on you can no longer develop potential only current ability. This will allow you to have a great control over players.

    I also get sick to death of young strikers with finishing 1. All strikers should have at least a rating of 5 for this field. I have several times had a great player for all striker stats but their finishing been below 5. This is far too unrealistic.

    Players reacting to gaining / losing captaincy.
    Currently, nothing at all happens when you give someone the armband, when irl it's a very big thing esp at international level.

    I think that upon taking over a club you need to specify a 'club captain' and perhaps this should be shown in the club information screen to make it more official looking. This is an important factor irl and should be included in the game.

    With the same for squad numbers too. ie Raul was number seven at Real, Beckham wanted number seven, Beckham gets told to p*ss off cos Raul is the captain.

    1) improved set piece training - where you can specify specific moves for specific frre kick areas and corners in a windowed mode, the move you dedicate your training to set pieces the better they get at the corners with only your dedicated set piece takers improving their taking ability.
    2) beta testing extensively before proper research on player attributes is done so that the basics work when the game is released and also would discourage most from copying the game
    3) more back room interaction with players, i don't want to do every little thing through the media, i would like to deal with my players on a personal basis rather then moaning to the times about form.
    4) Setting up systems of play for a club such as at arsenal where you can tell the team to keep the ball on the floor as much as possible and this would go on to affect the development of your youngsters as it is easy to get them using an aerial threat but its difficult to stop your defenders playing long balls without having them play useless passes between each other.
    5) Improved retraining of players relative to their stats. I don't mind having a striker come through my academy with 5 finishing but i would like to be able to retrain them as naturals is a positon that suits them better with their ability in the original position dropping. Also would like to see positional ability dropping for players like Henry who used to play as a wing but is a natural forward and as such his ability as a winger has dropped over the years.

    1.when club refuse your loan offer but accept others, it would be nice of the club to say team x has offered this match it and will accept or something along those lines.

    2. also on loans i would like to tell the club what importance their player is to me when trying to loan him. at the moment its 1 way traffic.

    3.on tactics i would like the option to play a narrow midfiel but wide back line or visa versa.

    4.team talks not to have the importance they seem to at the moment (thats my opinion)

    5.player to accept termination of contract more. especially when not being picked for long periods of time.

    6. when signing a player that needs WP. if you have a feeder club that can get round it the player should decide before the deal goes through, that is where he is going.

    7. attendances sorted. more so when a team is promoted to epl.

    im sure theres more but thats it for the moment

    I think with feeder clubs you should be able to send staff there that you trust and they can report on players there if you have first option and can also look after players who are loaned there make sure their stats dont go down because training isn't as goo

    Apologies if this has already been requested but this idea just hit me earlier on today...

    I think it will be cool if there can be more player reaction towards his team mates, which signify his own character and other players characters and how they get on during a game. For example if Team A are on the attack, player B decides to go for an ambitious long shot while player C is in a great scoring position. The shot is hit aimlessly over the bar. Player C is annoyed with player B as to why he didn't shoot and I feel this would be good to implement into the match commentary, to add to the realism and the atmosphere and can also change a managers tactical approach.

    Please give feedback on this and feel free to elaborate on this if you have any of your own ideas.

    [b]winter breaks[b/]:
    - winter breaks to be a more important role.
    - Players should go on holiday
    - Should have a news item about fitness level of players returning from holiday (as in summer break)
    - Possible to have a "team of the fall" award (before winter break)
    - Possible to have a "team of the spring" award (after winter break)
    - More important to be 1st in division when there is winter break. See in Germany where you are "herbst meister or what they call it"
    - More media about in winter break building up to league start: if you are on 1st spot, can you keep it up and be champ at the end, at relagation spot, can you avoid relegation etc. Mauybe combined with known facts that in last season the teams on relegation spots did not survive (remember the great escape in England by WBA)

    Transfers easier to sell players
    More complex negoiations on transfers -ie longer payment clauses, can't play against team bought from that season,loan swap as bait.
    More agent involvement
    Subsitute comments. ie you can win us the game.

    backroom staff should be focused on,
    it should be scrapped and rebuilt from the ground up.
    at the moment we just ask our coachs for their opinion on a player and he comes back with a s***ty little report that doesnt say where the players best qualities are, (only the scout gives you that, and its not that accurate)

    for example, i want my coach to train my left winger to make a simple pass inside left and to have to pass returned 30 yards in front of him so he has to run past the marker and play a quality first time cross on which my striker puts it in the back of the oppos net.
    my coach will tell me that he will have some concerns etc or that he can do it time after time without tiring and so on.

    i ment to say that you can also only get the scouts report if you player has been scouted before signing for you.

    I would like to see you able to offer to become a board member or sort out a take over bid. I know this is above and beyond management, but I think it would be interesting, a bit like Keegan incident recently. It would probably take up a lot of memory to do though.

    I've heard it mentioned before, but on a player screen where it has 'palns for the future and that kind of thing, it should have 'home grown status' and supporter opinion.

    The supporter opinion bit should say things like ' despite not playing on a regular basis, the tottenham fans would hate to see Defoe leave' or 'after his 31m transfer, the chelsea fans are still waiting for shevchenko to prove himself'


    I also want the board to prompt you on where the squad needs strengthening 'freddy sheppard would like to welcome you to newcastle, your transfer budget for this season is 7m, the board and supporters are keeen to see you strengthen the defence that leaked 47 goals last term.'

    Ok so here we go....

    I believe that there should be visual representation of a players height and weight.

    So for instance have an outline of a player with a height mark next to him and maybe a different colour outline to show excess fat.

    This method could also be used to show injuries.


    I would also like to have more support for online games as joining a clan or getting an IP for a quick(!) game is a bitch.


    I am aware that stadium issues are not usually a matter for managers but a 2D top down image with the option to expand stadiums, food stalls etc. would enhance the game.


    The inclusion of named sponsors, even if they are made up, would make things more realistic.


    Better media interaction with regards to returning players.


    That is all for now

    I ain't had time to read through the whole of this topic (which started years ago by the looks of things ) due to a lack of free time these days, but the one area I would definitely like to see restructured is training. I could go into all the unecessary waffle with my reasons for this, but I have links to do that for me :

    A user guide to Seasoned Alcoholic's FM2007 Training Schedules

    So basically a note to the developers...please consider bringing back a training system such as the one used in Championship Manager Season 03/04. At least then specific attributes can be targeted rather than the attribute pools as is currently the case in FM2007. I'll probably have more suggestions for the future though.

    Cheers

    I hadn't thought of that, but now i've read it i really want substitute instructions.

    Captaincy seeming important would be nice as well, wiwth some sort of fan opinion.

    also the media specualting about you signing players that are not on your shortlist. just plain making it up like real life.

    total career earnins would be nice !!

    and players you're not using getting interest from smaller clubs (like wayne bridge and swp at chelsea)

    clubs accepting =player offers that make sense, like when you offer a defender as part of a transfer deal for their defender.

    older players asking o leave to return to their home country before they retire, like ajax and edgar davids.

    clubs just naming a price, when they're clearly resigned to losing a player, like curtis davies at wba


    a physio report on the sidelines when they treat the player, so I know if it's worth keeping them on

    I've seen calls for a 'touring squad' to be selectable, instead of being able to call up every tom/dick/harry from the reserves or under 18's while you're in Peru on tour the morning before the match. Here here.

    But what about the effects of jet lag on players on the way back home? Or what about players who play internationals halfway across the globe. Can distance traveled have more of an effect on players.

    In the finance -> transfer screen to see listed the teams you have a "friendly game" in spare with when they bought one of your players and there was a "friendly game" in the offer too.

    After a while I forget which teams I have this deal with and sometimes forget to play the games.

    Definitely.

    If they're in the same league you can just use your mouse wheel to do a quick scroll through the list of clubs on that little menu thing, and see if any of them have it. But what if you sell your player to a foreign club, or one of the bigger clubs e.t.c.

    So yes, I would love that.

    Also, I know it's already been mentioned, probably in this thread, but I would love to see a "scouting reports"-style level of info on your own players, as with the way it currently stands, you know more about players that don't play for you than those that do.

    My wish is this:

    I want to be able to do something with the virtual money that I (as a manager) earn. I don’t know…something…anything…just give me a small reason for which I should ask my chairman for a higher wage.

    It'd be great if it would be possible to sign a player on a bosman six months ahead, then have the flexibility to try and sign him right then and there. You see this happen in football quite regularly, but when you sign someone in FM, you'll have to cancel the upcoming transfer to try and buy him outright.

    I'd like to be able to interact with a player who hasn;t got a WP. I've tried to send my youngster on loan to my belgium feeder, but he wont go. Now hes all annoyed cause i dont play him, but i can't?! He wont accept a new contract because of not playing and he reckons he's too good to go on loan. Its very frustrating, but how was i meant to know he wasn;t up for it?!

    i don't know if this has been mentioned already but what i would like is some sort of a quick sub system so we wouldn't have to go all the way to the tactics screen to do subs, and also would like to ask assistant for a good signing

    I don't know if this has been mentioned but, I'd like the players to play a bigger part in the media before the matches. Today for example there was a story about Spurs and Robbie Keane, how he was "unfazed by the challenge of ending Arsenal's unbeaten record at the Emirates Stadium."

    So maybe if the player talking to the media has a high influence or is a favorite at the club or personell for the players then his comments could boost the team and up their will to perform during the game. Etc, etc.

    you could make it so that when you 'view' a match in the game, it could be mentioned in the commentary.

    'xxxx is in the stands tonight, probably sizing up his rivals arsenal before next tuesdays semi-final'

    or it could cause specualtion

    'xxxx is in the stands tonight, probably to get a first hand look at top transfer target gareth bale'

    Greater control over the naming of new stadiums and/or greater variation in the naming of new stadiums.

    More information regarding stadium expansions, when asked.

    There should be more significance when it comes to club captaincy, hence captains should be involved in locker room activiies.

    and improve the russian league, in the game if i wanted to buy ivan pelozzoli from reggina and gyan asamoah from udinese for lokmotive moscow it would never happen, but in reallity its an intresting league that attracts likes of Maniche and Ricardo olivera and more.

    Just a small thing but it's been bugging me for a while, for Welsh players under languages spoken I would like it have at least basic Welsh as well as English.

    Doing the 'Saved Game Challenge' made me think that it might be cool to have a certain number of preloaded 'scenarios' on the game, if you just wanted a quick game to have some fun with, in the same vein as that challenge. Maybe you could download new ones as well.

    the option to say to your players, hug the touchlinem (individual player widths and tempos)

    also, individual distribution like the keepers have, eg for a full back hit the line or a winger play the channels
