    When computer teams get promoted to higher league they up the training and grounds, if money available.

    a one year extention option when offering players contracts.

    you hear about this all the time in the real football world and it is an option on other football manager sims

    also regarding contracts, why cant you offer month to month rolling contacts anymore? this feature seemed to be removed after CM02/03 and is again something that happens regularly in football

    I would like to see a return to the old system of having all the news in the one inbox rather than the 3-4 sections it is scattered across a the moment in the current version.

    we can already pick 1 favorite team

    how about being able to pick a team we hate as well?

    also, there are several teams I like so adding a few more options would be nice too.

    I'd like to be able to set a filter for a players attributes so that I can use a drop down box so that I can only attributes above a certain level (say all attributes above 15 or something, as you can when using the player search tool). It would make it easier to see where a player's real strengths are. Alternatively have the ability to show a player's attributes ranked from highest to lowest.

    For the long term playing it would be nice to pimp the history stats.

    For example i want to see who make the most assists in my club for several years, not just year for year (regular it must be very easy to make this like the goals stats- league per year, overall per year, and overall in team), and u should including the highest scoring player from every year (assists+goals).

    A manager icon who sits on the bench and reacts to different situations such as sending-offs and goals.

    Also being able to pick your kick off takers and what happens, I have a QPR season ticket and our two midfielders usualy take the kick off now. You could choose your two players with best passing/dribbling and tell them to go on a run or to pass it back.

    I just have a small suggestion.

    It would be great if we could get some more info on the assistant report about the club. Now we get to know who the assman recommends as the best players. But it would be nice if thee also was some overview of the skills in that 11. For example physical strength, speed, technique in the three parts of the team (def, midfield, attack). Then it would be easier to design your tactics to fit the team, instead of trying to make the players fit the tactic.

    There could be more info also of course, but that's a start.

    I wouldn't mind the toss of a coin at the match day start, being able to choose to kick off and what end of the pitch to play towards. It probably wouldn't affect tactics too much, I'm thinking, but it would give a little extra realism to the new Match Day build-up in 08.
    Also, how about the odd out-of-contract lower reputation player trying to get a trial at a lower-league club, it does happen. I don't know how that could be worked though, maybe a balance between club/player reputation?

    I know that it doesnt happen in real life very often but I would like to see a feature where, depending on your success you or other managers are picked to manage a team in a special one off match ie. for charity, euro XI .v. world XI or a team of premiership players against a team of spanish players. would be fun

    i think we managers should be able to know whats wrong with our players when they get minor injuries. like once rooney had a slight injury against arsenal on my game, wasn't sure if to withdraw him cause i had chelsea next. if i had known it was a wrist injury i would have left him on as the risk of losing him will be less.

    Back before CM4 was released there use to be a separate forum purely for new ideas for the next version. I think this forum should be re-created for FM2009.

    Would it be possible in FM09 to (when you're choosing a team at the Create a Manager screen)

    have a arrow pointing up (maybe green?) next to teams that were promoted the previous season and an arrow pointing down (maybe red?) next to teams that were relegated the previous season?

    I like to go on holidays for a season and take over a new team and it would save me some time looking to see which teams went up or down

    I would like to be able to send a scout to search for just youth players like we used to be able to 3 or 4 years ago

    Search could depend on club rep - a team playing in the Blue Square leagues for example would only be able to scout a 50 mile radius from their town.

    League 1 and 2 could search all England.

    Championship sides scout UK and Ireland for youth and Premier sides could scout Europe and Scandinavia.

    Top 4 sides would be able to scout worldwide.

    These example are for English teams - obviously teams from other countries would have their own restrictions depending on reputation.

    I think this would be a great addition

    It is already in the game..me as I am in a 2nd division danish team I can only make research in denmark.

    Create your own team.. eg. FC United started off nowhere and they're trying to work there way up as high as possible. Also somehow be able to say what you think at half time/full time instead of the same team talk over and over again.

    Easier ways to interact with your players.

    I also noticed that my scout advises me to get a certain player to tutor another player but when I go to do it,there's always a different player there d he wouldn't like to be tutored by them.

  22. #1922

    A couple of things I can think of to improve:
    - Ability to request expansion of scouting network - if you're a lower league club, with a bit of money, but are limited to scouting your region, if you could request to be able to scout a different region as well. You would also be able to issue ultimatums over this as well
    - Expansion of the confidence section, to include how the board feels about you as a manager - e.g. 'The board is disappointed with the playing style used by the team at the moment', or 'The board is pleased that you rejected the manager offer from X', or other general statements. I would also like to see a part about how the fans feel about player departures, along the lines of 'Spokesperson feels that the sale of X was a good piece of business', or 'Spokesperson thinks that Y had great potential and should not have been allowed to leave'.

    Don't know if it's been mentioned before,but here goes. If attendances start dwindling,ask the fans for more commitment,or question if they really want a successful team then they're going to have to show more support. Or offer congratulations to winning team managers,or deride your rivals in relegation etc.

    Not sure if this has been mentioned - just dont have time to read all the posts for this topic and didn't see it in my search - but would like more options for the team talks...like being able to throw the water cooler at a player, encouraging by yelling and punching locker, good job - but then it was expected, etc. Just overall more choices for it.

    Would like to have a team report overview screen that summarizes the coaches reports. Along these lines would also be able to get a report from the AssMan as to which players he feels would benefit from tutoring.

    More detailed control of the training, such as aspects within the overall categories to adjust the training on. Also - the ability to set a player to train to learn to play a particular way - such as running into channels, etc.

    Off the field incidents.

    I know agents have been brought up and I agree they should play a bigger role.

    The ability to request weekly reports from different coaches based on what they have seen during the training they are in charge of.

    More ability to call team meetings or the ability to direct what the team should work on for the next game.

    In game pep-talks or instruction for subs.

    Request advice from the asst. man. in-game.

    I know I have thought of more, but right now can not remember them...

    when you get a job offer and delay it till the end of the season it should be delayed according to when your league finishes for example i was real madrid and top of the table and had a couple of games till i won the league but i had delayed a job offer from liverpool. when the english season was over i was moved over as liverpool manager and didnt get to win the league with real madrid.

    secondly i play alot of my games in the spanish league and want to see some presidential elections, with the different candidates promising to apoint person X as manager(could be human or AI) and signing X, Y, Z players etc

    I agree. Would like to see the above leagues, plus playable Cameroon, Saudi Arabian, New Zealand and Honduran leagues. Would also be all for implementing the lower US & Canadian leagues. I know they have no promotion to the MLS, but they could be implemented seperately somehow, surely?

    And... any news on the licence situation for Japan?

    I wish that SI could in some way acknowledge which players are happy at their clubs and loyal, every time I start a game with United loads of teams bid for Vidic and Evra and they become unhappy and want to leave.

    In reality those 2 players would not want to leave United for anyone and would not become unsettled, sorry if this has been talked about elsewhere already.

    My suggestion is for something quite minor, but which would save time for those of us who are picky with the game. In the game setup page, it would be good to have a function that allowed you to select all countries in the "add players from..." drop-down menu. There is a function that lets you de-select all of the countries, so surely one that selects them all would be possible?

    Another for SI's review (hopefully they do read these...have seen a lot of posts asking if anyone from SI is reading them, but haven't seen any replies as to whether they do or not...) - Make the money you make as a manager mean something. Currently, who cares how much they offer you? You are never able to use that money anyway. Why not something where you get to save money after a certain amount (that could change based on your preferences maybe?) has been taken out of your monthly salary? Then you could build up a balance and use it on things like investments, coaching clinics to increase your ratings or your coaches ratings, gifts to increase standing with players, or build up enough of a balance to try and get a group together and buy a team and then manage the team from the board room side?

    More wages + longer contract = less chance of being sacked. SI have already said they arnt going down the being able to spend money or be a chairman route.

    I'd like to see a full out depth chart. When we read scouting reports, they say someone would be the 7th best defensive midfielder on the team. I'd like to see how each scout ranks each of my positions.

    A not be sacked option for those not interested in moving clubs but want to progress to the top divisions.

    Bloody annoying when you spend 20 seasons getting from the BSS to the Championship. Get relegated as expected by the board and then get sacked after a slow start.

    The inability to be sacked would give you time to pull things around - you may even be relegated again!

    I wish that......

    1. The non-competetive stats at the bottom of the player profile page were "activated".

    There is a full thread about it here.

    2. I wish that having my GK getting sent off was a key highlight.

    I have reported this every year for as long as I have been a member of these forums, (2000 I think), but it is never fixed). Now the problem seems to be that although you can't see your GK getting sent off in key highlights at the time, if you go back into the match after it si finished and watch highlights then, (or when someone else looks at your save to try and replicate the problem), then the incident is viewable.

    3. I wish that when I instructed replays of goals only to be shown then that is what I got. Instead, if you are making a substitution when the goal is scored, (and missed the goal), it is not shown, yet when a goal is not scored from a penalty the replay is shown. So you get to see a replay of an incident that doesn't result in a goal, but when you miss a goal, that is the one that isn't shown.

    4. I REALLY wish that there was a system in place which allowed for league/structure development, possibly linked to coefficients. This would impact on such things as reputation of clubs/players/competitions and attendances/prize money/sponsorship.

    A thread on the subject can be found here.

    5. I wish that attendances in the Lower Leagues weren't all over the place, (with ups and down for seemingly no apparrant reason).

    6. I wish that teams that are playable in the game, (but not at the start of the game), ie. teams that are promoted into a playable league after 1 season, are considered "equal" to that of more established teams in that their badges/logo's/crests/kits are included in the game.

    7. I REALLY wish that the term "feeder clubs" will be replaced by "affiliated clubs". The English structure and other structures ban their members from being a feeder club to other members and this is not represented within the game. Barnet can have an "affiliation" with Arsenal that allows them to stage an annual friendly and keep the proceeds, however Barnet should not be able to become Arsenal's "feeder club" and loan x number of players from a Premiership giant at the drop of a hat without having to pahy a penny in wages.

    8. I REALLY wish that loaning players in the game when you are managing at the lower reaches of any structure wasn't so easy. Managing in the Conference North/South and loaning in an abundance of talented youngsters from a biggish Championship side is just completely un-realistic. If you don't do it then you can't compete with some of the other teams in the league who are doing it as the gulf in class is enormous, and if you do it, the "feel" of the game is wrong. If it isn't easy to work out a system to redefine what player should do this by using PA/CA/reputation then I would prefer a limit on the number of leagues that a player could drop, (just don't tell us what the system in place is and we will never know). I would prefer it to be player specific, but if that is not possible then a hidden "stop-gap" limit to the number of leagues a player could drop would do a job.

    9. I wish that my scouts, (yes, even the carp ones), would return even 1 carp report on a regular basis after going on a scouting trip. What we have at the moment is absolutely nothing until the scout has finished his trip. That's all well and good if you are Premiership giant with a team full of stars already, but if you are managing a team that has just been promoted from "unplayable" and only have about 6 youth players and some "greys", then the idea that your scout would not ring you up the moment he had found a potential target is preposterous.

    10. I would like to be able to scout individual squads. Not teams like Man Utd, Burnley, & Barnesly, but Watford U18's, Arsenal Reserves and Hitchin senior squad.

    11. I want to be able to send scouts to watch specific games. ie. A top of the table clash between Ebbsfleet and Carshalton.

    12. I would like to be able to send my scout to specific International matches such as England v Croatia or England U18's against France U18's, (as long as the game is being played in an area that is previously scouted). If I am the manager of Hitchin in Conference South, (and can scout only England as a result), then I want to be able to scout England v Croatia and England U18's v France U18's, but not Croatia v England or France U18's v England U18's.

    13. I like the fact that chairmen can sell players from under you, but I also think that it needs more "fleshing out". I wish that when my chairman comes in and says that he has accepted an offer of £250,000 for my hot prospect left back, I had the opportunity to ask him to consider and give hime a reason why, (ie. (a)I have already agreed to sell someone else and there is money due in from that, (b) he is worth far more than that, (c) could we not include an additional fee etc clause, (d) could we not hold out for a higher offer). Then after those options have been exhausted, could we not have the option to issue an ultimatum over the sale of the player and maybe some media interraction linked to this.

    14. I wish that there was some rhyme or reason to the "newsbox". What I am looking for is never at the top and I invariably need to search past so much uselss stuff first.

    There is an individual thread on the subject here.

    15. I wish that there were more stats in the game.

    There is a thread on the subject of stats here.

    16. I wish that the Ass Man was given a whole wealth of additional responsibilities and used almost as a tool to create "levels" within the game.

    An individual thread on the subject can be found here.

    17. I wish that the "salary cap" that is currently in operation in a number of leagues within the English structure, will be included in future issues.

    There is a full thread about the subject here.

    Don't know if it's been mentioned but,seeing as there's been alot of problems with the tactics in 08, how about getting your team to give you a feedback on how they like to play,or want to play,or whether they're happy playing to your tactics.

    I would like the player history to show all time stats. I understand that at the moment only league stats are shown for players already in the game but I like to see all games in players history. When I give a debut to my 17 year old prodigy in the league cup against a lower level team I want to see that reflected in his history.

    I know I can click on the individual season and see these stats but I want them viewable at a glance. I want to know that a player who has been at the club since was 15 is closing in on 1000 games in all competitions. It’s not even as if these stats are not recorded as they are viewable by clicking on that season!

    All it would take to please everybody is a drop down menu on the history screen to say, Career, League, Domestic Cup, Non-Domestic Cup.

    In common sense, I am mostly oriented to ideas that improve interaction between people. It seems to me that interaction, in real life, plays an incredible role. Before I actually continue with "ideas", I am guessing that in this "new version" unbalanced transfers, and bunch of little bugs like closing down, team talk efficiency, and so on, are fixed, and work like they worked/should work (Just yesterday I saw something really stupid: A player valued 20 mil, and with 75,000 week sallary, refused a 3-year offer for 340,000 per week with 50k appearance, and goal bonus likewise with +25% sallary bonus, and extra fee of 12 mil, saying that "The offer is insulting, and below his profile." Now that, you have to admit, is stupid. )

    1) The team talk should not be cut depending on the situation. There are moments when I'd choose "Show encouragment", but instead, it's written "Warn against complacency." These two are absolutely different sentences with absolutely different meaning, and it's rather absurd that the game "grays out" any talk option, because I find myself in hundred situatios where I'd choose something that's usually available, but now suddenly isn't. Also, I'm specifically pointing at "Why can't you play like this every week?". This sentence was different in last version. It said "I want you to play like this every week." The meaning of these two sentences is absolute opposite. The first one technically says "See, you guys can actually play good, and why the hell aren't you playing like that every time instead of playing like crap?", while the second one generally means "This is the play I want from you, that's the right thing!" Which is basically a very positive statement. But, magically, the first one excluded the other one, and in the end, it covered all those talks I wanted to say, but couldn't with the last version sentence, but also opened all those for which I said the positive sentence. I can't seem to understand why can't you have exactly every option available at any time. Speaking of options, there should and must be more of them - and some nasty one aswell. For example, many players encounter team that they hate. Having a sentence "I want you to anninhilate them on the field." pretty much covers our incredible desire to beat, and destroy some team (EG. Celtic player vs Rangers), and does a very interesting effect on the players, and the game, instead of "I expect a win." Which is lifeless, and presents an authoritive approach. So my suggestion is, for the sake of several hundred kilobytes of programing code, REALLY expand the talks, cover a lot of emotions, exclude the graying-out, many players want to feel a thrill when playing, and a lot of such thrills are cut!

    2) There should REALLY be a player interaction. Not just that dumb "Suggest a player" or "Praise him", but actual interaction - like - I have Riquelme in my team. I love him as a player. I adore his game. And I really want to be able to say to him, privately, for his ears - for example - "Tell Riquelme you are very pleased with his play, and that you encourage him to keep up the good work." or "Tell Riquelme you absolutely love him as a player, and that he has your full support." OR, "Ask Riquelme if he'd follow you if you move to another club." If a player loves you, he might then have ability to present an ultimatum, for example, News: "Riquelme announced termination request if Milan sacks John Doe. He says: If our manager leaves, I'll follow him.". Things like that. It's really sad when you can't show your joy, and when players are nothing but players. Also, it's a bit dumb when you, for example, leave a club. It's like as if you never ever had that player with you, anyway.

    3) I also suggest improving the player/tactic relationship. For example - as seen by tests - I play with the same team in Real Madrid for 4 years. Then I switched to Barcelona, and bought all players I had in Real Madrid, and set absolutely everything the way it was in RM. Suddenly, they all played as if they met each other - and me - for the first time in their life. Also - if you have an Eduardo - Klasnic duel in your attack, and they also play duel attack for their country, they should work far better than two strikers that see each other only during country games. I thought of installing an inside application that measures how well each player plays with someone else, on, I don't know, 6-star range, with 1 being impossible, 2 somehow, 3 normal, 4 well, 5 excellent, and 6 born to play together. That could also be linked to player interaction, so that you can ask you player who do they think they play best with, and further have a better and more realistic sight into the game. I didn't notice such behavior in FM, I think it's a horrible miss, and that's why I'm typing it.

    4) What I do want to suggest is NEVER change the pitch view. Screw that 3d or what-not-crap, people asking to see each manager behave on the pitch, and what-not, just work on the intelligence on field, and that's the key success.

    5) An option to simply be able to view all players loaded in game via search for player, because it's really annoying, and dumb that I can't see some Bolivia player in search form, but if I go to their country, and select that club o' theirs, I can normally view players. Yes, it has to do with scouts, but for the sake of some who spend hours doing something that takes years for scouts, just make that option. Oh yes - and return huge or even maximum database. What's the point in excluding that option? Or if you don't want to put that, make an option to load players from all countries, instead forcing me to click again and again and again at every damn country. Following this, there should really be more options - Other games have 5 or more gigs. Some 8. Your game has 700 mb. All you can offer are options, and connections, and a load, load of text - so what you should do is offer even more options, and a load load load of text. For example, why the hell can't I select more than one favorite club? It's just dumb. If you like two or more clubs, liking that club, and showing that you love that club during game also upps your chances of managing it, so having one club selected is just lame. Same goes for other options. Why is that I can't load game during match if I want to load it? There's no reason for graying out the load option. Instead, if I want to load a game, I have to wait all 90 minutes, then process the game, and then reload.

    Or, why I can't save team selection? If I have different team for Champions cup, and different for league, I am forced to deselect all players from the squad, and select others every time before match. It's just boring, and time-consuming. Instead, just program a little add that allows us to save team squad, and then we just load the team, and replace all those that are error (If some are injured or alike).

    I can't remember of anything else - My whole point is - just make more options.

    I didn't have a printer for a couple of years, no real need for one.
    Anyway having just got a new printer I thought I'd be able to print stuff off like the old days. I remember clicking a 'print all' button and having my squad list, fixtures, league table and stats(I think) all printed out together. I could then have my options set to 4 sheets per page, all the info I needed on 1 A4. Beautiful it was, could take it to the garage while having a smoke and suss out my team and fixtures and stuff.

    Yesterday I tried to do something similar and it was very frustrating.
    Firstly there is no 'print all' type function anymore, which could save plenty of time.
    No worries I'll print to file and then copy and paste them together to get the effect I'm looking for - 4 sheets per page. They come out landscape and the thing looks ugly.
    So I change my options and have them printing in a squashed format to fit a portrait A4, but whenever I change this I can't print 4 sheets per page and have to settle for 1 sheet per page.
    It will do me for now, but surely it is easier for everyone to have a print all option and for when it prints to be portrait and not landscape style.
    Why are the printing options from 7-8 years ago better than 08's options?

    Hello i have some ideas that maybe will make better this manager because this manager isnt realistic.Most realistic manager i played is CM 03/04 but not even that was realistic that i would like.Better i begin with suggestions:1)First you should make new new skin and new theme you should hire someone who knows something about making decent begining of the game something related to football then you should put music in the game like in GTA:San Andreas where you can put in yours music that you like,then crowd chant isnt realsitic they make same noise when there is 15 people and same when there are 40.000 people.
    2)I would like when the game begins that it looks like on TV that there is list of the players and that players get in the line and give hand to other.Then in real life players pass the ball back in their own half to their defenders.
    3)You should make players in for example Croatian league decent but the plyers like Luka Modrić good like in real world i want to say that teams who has players like him should win those decent teams like in croatian league.
    I would like that Dinamo and other big teams buys young layers and players with experience who are croats like bišćan,*okota,and perhaps Dario *imić and other players who played in the Dinamo.
    Im dissapointed beacause when i see that Red Star(Crvena Zvezda)buys some croatian player in real world that wouldnt happen and coatian teams buys players mostly from bosnia,slovenia,romania,bulgaria and brazil and other counties who are around them that is and for other teams england teams buys players from mostly scotland,ireland,holland,belgium,portugal
    little changes make most experience and it makes game better i dont know why you make constant errors and dont you watch football.Why cant Dinamo buy brazilian players who are from example sao paulo in real world brailians cant wait that some big european club make interest for them and dinamo has much money,ukraine clubs also like shakhtar buy young players from romania nigeria brazil poland and other counties surrounding them thats in real football because
    thei trainer is fro romania.One thing why big clubs like villareal in spain league is in14 position in the middle of season they have good team teams like almeria should be in last place,
    4)Why prices of players arent like in transfermarkt and why clubs like real and barcelona havent bigger budgets and why they are buying players in start of the season before they know if they need new players.
    5)Why players in one-on-one situations miss whole goal especially if there arent anyone behind him and if that is Henry,messi and any other decent and other player shouldnt miss that.
    If you can make this wishes make happen this game would become legenary and it wouldnt have any concurets.Cheers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    6)One more thing is if there is some player like Luka Modrić it would be silly that club let him go for cheap 2.000.000 it should be sold for 30-40 million and old players shold be sold cheeply to their home club like schevchenko will end his carrer in perhaps Dinamo Kyiv.Teams from ligue 5 should be stronger than those in smaller leagues only if the team from smaller league isnt rich and have good trainer and players.
    7)There should be training camps like Milan camp in bosnia and some poor countries with talents like some afican countries and sweden,denmark,
    8)There shouldnt be displayed attributes but you should send scouts to scout and follow the player.
    Put this in the game please in the FM 2008/2009 please im sorry beacause i had writing too much !!!!!!!!!!!

    Here I am again i know i am anoying i have some more recommendations you should cutt out face gen it is stupid you should put in match analysis like in CM 2007/2008 you should make teams specific from team to team one trainer is buying young players like Arsene Wenger and one buying older players and young players like Ancelloti.Budgets must be for example real madrid and other big clubs 100 millions.You should put in option that you can choose betwen trainer and chairman.
    Trainer in for example dinamo cant buy players on their own they make list of wishes and board buys for them that should be in the manager in the game.
    You should also put if you have a bad result wit for example real or barcelona that they sack you
    and if you have good result with smaller team bigger teams should hire you in half of the season.Fan days are stupid.You should put in news section like newspapers.Please make my praires. I will write you soon im just joking.

    I have read this previous topic and found it very interesting and realistic. It would be great to play such realistic football game. I hope you that you will realise this wish and make it real so we can play it next year. please, make all real players in senior squad, for example, all three finest goalkeepers in senior squad, etc. it would be good not to choose leagues and countryes, but to make all players ( and managers...) in one game, so you don´t have to choose which leagues do you have. I honestly think that previous post has its future and that many people would surely surpsise to play such great computer game. i would love to see this game next year, or even two years ahead.
    MAKE OUR CHRISTMAS HAPPY AND PROUD!!

    P.S.
    And you will earn a lot of money on that idea, you can bet!!

    Improve the negotations, transfer and economic models in the game and make them more realistic. This is a improvement that has been waiting for many versions now. Can we expect actions for FM2009?

    It would be even better to select countryes on some kind of globus. In tactics panel you can write tactics on the board ( sending one player to multiple positions at the same time and in different conditions [oponents attack, your attack]), I think that would be so cool!!
    Thank you, i hope you will made this changes.

    I think that you should put in instead old way of selecting countries and leagues some kind of globus
    like in the google earth like previous guy said that would be excellent and you should put in tactics screen, board like in real life where you have round circles like old ones but where you can move them everywhere like in CM 2008/2009 and something like choke where you can draw where you want your players to feed,pass,and run that would be great and of course with those ideas that i said before cheers!!!!

    Changing and editing the kits at the start of the new season and also changing the sponsors of your club to drag in more money. Now i know managers don't deal with this kinda stuff but it would add a bit of a fun factor to the game.

    Sorry if something similar has been posted.
    I think that we should have an agent within the game.
    The new news and inbox system has left a lot of people out of the loop regarding the comings and goings upon the manager side so the agent will send you a message saying that the job X club has become available, and perhaps also tells you your chance of getting the job if you happened to apply for it.
    Also to stop this small feature becoming insiginifcant it will need expanding a little so maybe if this agent could also help contract negotiations suggesting what the player should aim for and also do a similar job to a scouting job telling the user what jobs are available, where a managers job is under threat and seeing who would be intrested in your services if you wanted a new job.

    at the moment its a lottery i get players coming off with a gashed head but staying on with a fitness of about 80 but having a sprained ankle

    Just a suggestion for you, SI, for the next version.

    Why don't you implement CA and PA for different positions? After all, A means Ability.

    Someone like Kaka who is a good AMC may not have the ability to be a GK. Then CA for AMC can be 192, while CA for GK is only 10. I hope you can understand what I mean. The meaning of CA and PA is too wide in this game.

    Probably been suggested but I would like to see staff shortlists. Would make it a lot easier if I had a shortlist when trying to deciede who to add to my backroom staff. Allows me to be lazy and not have to search for the ones I am interested in

    What about if you are leaving a club on good terms, in particular a national team, you should be able to recommend your replacement.

    I think that would be pretty great.

    1) Remove penalty training from the set piece training and give it it's own training section. Currently you end up training any strikers that are good at penalties to also be good at taking corners, and long throws which I really dislike.

    2) The needs to remember my negotiations when players make enquiries about my players. If a team made an enquiry and I set the negotiations to £250k upfront, £250k over 24 months, and 50% sell on fee, then another team comes in with an enquiry and the transfer is set at £500k upfront for that new enquiry. It should come up as £250k upfront, £250k over 24 months, and 50% sell on fee, which I can then change at my leisure if I wish, rather then me having to go through changing it again for each enquiry (and I can have about 50 enquiries in a single transfer window for the same player).

    3) FM08 manual implies that composure is an important stat for defending not just shooting. If it does have an effect on a defender placed under defensive pressure than can it be moved from shooting training to a different training section a defender is more likely to be assigned too? If it has no effect on defenders then the manual should be changed for FM09.

    4) I'd like a bit more indepth training. Maybe having 2-3 more sections so you can fine tune your training a bit more then you can now. I'm not saying go back to the old selecting 5 a side match on a wed afternoon stuff which was a nightmare. This is a bit like point 1) but I don't like that to train my DC to head the ball also improves their flair and dribbling which I don't want my DC to even contemplate in a match. Also it'd be nice if training goalkeepers used a different set of training assignments, having maybe 4-5 assignments (instead of just a catch all goalkeeping assignment and the outfield assignments) plus strength and aerobic.

    5) Finances in the lower leagues (i've played a lot in BSP and below in England) seem a bit wrong. As a semi-pro club in the BSP I was able to amass £1m in the bank, not counting players sales or a significant cup run, in 3 years. The wage budget was very tight and no transfer funds were spent.

    Can't edit and I just thought of something else.

    The game needs to give you some indication of when you have asked for stadium expansion, youth or training facilities upgrade that the board have approved your request. I often ask the right at the start of the season about an upgrade and 2-3 days later when I get to the end of a season the board get annoyed as I ask them again as I'd forgotten I'd they already said yes. Also for training and youth upgrades can we please have some indiction when they are going to be completed on the club information screen like you do currently for the stadium expansion, so we can know that the upgrade is actually in progresss.

    adding some variety to the team talks would be great, for example
    'You are playing against p***ies. is that all you can give?'
    'Go out there and **** them'

    another good feature would be to let us give a nickname to even a team like we can to a player.

    Not sure if this has been mentioned but ...


    I would like to see the addition of the ability to apply for postponement of mathes. i.e. if you have an extremely important chmpions league game on wednesday you could apply for postponement of the match for the following saturday . But obviously you should have to give reasons for the postponement and not just ask for it randomly and give us a chance of actualy getting it unlike appealing a red card etc.

    I would like to see this in new football manager game I hope that you will put it with wishes i mentioned before.I should begin:1)I would like you to make that you make difference betwen the teams who come from smaller countries and from smaller leagues because it is not same that you play with some club who plays with stronger clubs in the league and club who plays with clubs that are weaker than him.You should make that every club in the world can buy every player if he has much money and it must be dependig on if he is building a good team and if he is playing in Championship League but also if some club from league 5 is pursuing a player that player should be more interested in the club that is in some European contest.
    2)I would also like you to make more realistic AI system than before he should know when he sold a star player that he should replace him with new player.He should know that big clubs dont buy old players who dont have enough reputation better AI that is more difficult to play.
    3)Then you should make that feeder clubs are made in those countries that you have choosen.
    4)You should make that when you choose the game you already have all first and second leagues and then you choose lower divisions if you like that would be better than old way because you could have new clubs in European competitions.
    5)You should make that if some club is playing much games its players will surely be more tired
    Then you should make that clubs that arent fighting for 1 place should fight thrugh the
    cup.
    In other words you should work harder and make game realistic as in real world.And listen to our advices.I am sure that you are capable of making such a game that will beat concurention.
    Good luck!!!!!!!

    an improved match analysis would be fine

    i'm tired of getting the "ur team would lose 3-0" even though i'm top of the league and on a winning streak!

    I'm sure its been said but a 3D engine that integrates the database would be and should be THE next evolution of this series. Just make 3d polygons do what the dots do now

    Probably been said before but I would like an option to refuse all enquiries for a player - the game would be so much quicker if I wasn't rejecting every enquiry every day.

    Also I know we have the option to reject all offers but this should be split into reject transfer offer and reject loan offer - that way you could have it set to reject any transfer offer and accept loan offers.

    Media is boring - you end up answering the same questions over and over with the same answers

    Dedicated youth search like we used to have - too easy to pick up class U18's through the player search screen - all you have to do is click on approach to sign, offer a youth contract and if their status is First Team or Hot Prospect then you snap them up! - if not then cancel

    442 being more effective

    Scout reports - they should compare a player to the division standard and not the standard of your first team - you miss out on so many players because they are of an equal standard and you cannot build a strong squad

    ihello,I have been playing manager games for a long time,and i think that best manager was CM 03/04.I dont know why you cant make realistic manager game because i think that you have started beautiful project.I hope that you will read my this and make this wishes real and make our dream come true to become a Manager and drive our time to glory.
    Here are some wishes that i think will change way of playing and make game more realistic so i will begin:
    1)First of all you should make better skin skin with better background.
    2)Then you should make better game system and make game more difficult by making that when you are coaching some league that are not in league five(England,France,Germany,Spain,Italy)you should try harder to beat those teams unless those teams arent tired or have low morale.You should make that teams who have a good players shouldnt be in last position for example i was playing spanish league and i was in real madrid and in the half of the season Villareal was in last position(how could it be because they have a good team and in reality they are in fourth place)You should make that teams who would be in the first tree places,and last positions in the real world you should make them like that in the game i mean that stronger teams should be in the first position and not in the last.
    3)I would like that players in the game can make clans and that they could be unhappy and refuse to ply and that they can rebel against you.I think that you should also put that players can go out in disco clubs and make drunk and that you could give them a fine or cut their salary.It would be good if you would make game more oriented to psychology.
    4)Then I think that in the winter and in the summer teams should go to training camps to regain their strenght
    and fitness.
    5)Then you should also make that you can open training camps all over the world.
    6)You should make some section where you could read newspapers and hear about latest fixtures,rumors,and transfers.
    7)Transfers should be more realistic bigger teams should buy younger players and players with greater reputation.You should make that if player is unhappy in the club and in the fight with a trainer or with other player or he is unhappy with his appearances he would be more willing to go to you on loan or you to buy him I think also on small clubs from his country if the could afford him or clubs where he was starting his career off
    for example like Riquelme in Boca.You should make that parent clubs cannot be from the counties you havent selected or you should make that in the start of the game you already have selected all clubs from the world(only first and second leagues)
    8)Clubs from smaller leagues when playing too muc games should be more tired than teams in bigger leagues.
    9)You should make that bigger clubs from smaller leagues are buying older players who were already playing for them and all clubs should buy players that they would in the real world.
    For example Dinamo Zagreb will buy players from his surroundings but you must know that some players could never
    play in Dinamo because of its supporters who dont want any serbian players to play in the club also in the serbia where you cant find any croat.
    10)You should make that there isnt any limitations in buying players any team who has money could buy any player
    in the world(but also players would most like to sing for a team who is playing in the Champions league and other european competitions)It is stupid when i see that some south american team is buying some player from europe that has no roots in south america.That isnt realistic because south american are more likeli to go playing in europe.
    11)Then you should make that we can listen to music during the game and that we can put our own music in the game.Also it would be good that you put in the hooligans in the game it would be very interesting because all i have listed is making real football and if you would like that your game has something that makes football game
    a real game.
    12)I think when you click on continue there should shown some famous football sentence of best trainers in the world like in call of duty.
    13)I would be glad to see if you would make that if you select some club in the world you should hear its anthem
    like liverpools:"You`l never walk alone........"and other.
    14)This is my final wish and that is that when player is one on one with goalkeeper he should score in most cases,and player on whom is made a foul shouldn`t score in some cases because he is lacking concentration.
    If i remember something i will write you again because i think you dont understand that game is a game because
    of its pointy little details I am sure that you will realize that and make this FM 2008/2009 best game ever
    Good Luck!

    I would like a facegen editor to be included in the game as the fm editor is. I would like to create my face in the game instead of putting a photo that looks always the same.

    I am sorry but i have remembered something new so don`t get mad at me.
    -It would be good if you make values for the players just same like in the transfermarkt.
    -Then you should make that younger have higher values like for Luka Modrić price is 30-40 euros.
    -Higher budgets(example Real Madrid has budget of 100 million.)
    -You should make that on tactic screen you can move your players anywhere where you want like in CM 2008.
    -You should make something like Pro zone match analysis like in CM 2008.
    -In real world playmakers make difference on the pitch so that should be implemented in the game.
    -In rest of the world managers can`t buy players
    but they make list of wishes to their president and he buys them players if he has enough money only in England managers can buy players on their own because managers have to do with playing stuff and board is assigned to deal with finances.
    -Supporters should have better chant when they support their own club,and drums should be heard
    and maybe in the start of the match supporters should sing their anthem.
    -You should reorganize training section I would like to see training like it was in CM 03/04 (pig in the middle etc..... )
    -You shouldn`t put in the face-gen instead of it you should put real pictures like it was before
    -Scouting should be better,also coaches report about players because they don`t recognize good players.
    -I would like that there is no attributes shown on the screen because trainers in real world don`t have them you should rely on the scout reports it would be really good because it would make that scouts are meaning something in the game.
    I apologize if you had hard time with me but I think that these details would make game better.

    Maybe not so much a new idea more of a brand extension and seperate product, but how about an FM Encyclopedia of Football (on DVD not book form, with statistics, biography's and facts about players, clubs, officials, grounds, competitions etc, not just a current database but maybe a retrospective one aswell. You could have a complete record of league placings and cup finals, so if you wanted to find out where your team finished in 1935 for example you could look it up, likewise if you wanted to find out the score and scorers of a particular cup final you could do that as well, call it the "Encarta" of the football world if you will, anyway just a thought.

    The ability to arange fan days, team bonding sessions and trips. Maybe also you could do what Sven has done and go abroad to make links with other clubs and begin to set up academies in foriegn countries.

    what i would like is something that if you think about it we have have NEVER had any in CM/FM and that is to be able to talk to your players, its something that ALL managers do ALL the time, at the mo u can only say things such as "which player would you recommned to buy"
    i want to be able to say things such as
    to steven gerrard "i am resting you against sunderland on saturday beacuse i want you to be fully fit for the man utd game on wed" or

    to fernando torres "am very happy with you torres keep up the good form, you can take us to the title"

    A filter for players with Release Clauses is a great idea, imo.

    My wish is for the 'Next version suggestions' forum to be re-instated. This seemed to mysteriously disappear after CM4 was released from memory.

    Clicked the button too early.

    I just want to say I really like FM2008's new interface, best one yet although I know other's disagree. Some things I'd like to see in future for the interface are:

    <UL TYPE=SQUARE><LI> I'd like to see I move towards a more 'windows' like interface, one that supports multiple windows like a true windows application so that we can have different views open at once instead of having to click around all the time. It would be a great boon to those of us with widescreens and can make the most use out of a screen size real estate.
    <LI>When reviewing the statistics for a past match, it be good if we could see the ratings and statistics for players for both half-time and full-time.
    <LI>The next is pure aesthetics but I really wish there was some kind of map option which could display where every team in your competition is located geographically so we as players can get some kind of geographical sense of the world we are managing. On a per match basis, it be a great feature to show where your team is travelling to or where the opposition is travelling from.
    <LI>I'd love to see a true team attributes export feature for those of us who like to see all the visible atrributes in Excel. I know there is a print screen feature but it's use is very limited and cumbersome.
    <LI>While on the export feature, it be great if this was expanded to provide and ability to export the settings for player made tactics into some kind of useable table format. It would help out immensly for those of us who discuss tactics in the T&TT forum.[/list]
    That's all I can think of for now.

    1. More North and South American leagues, including the USL (USA Second Division, albeit sans relegation).

    2. Less time unemployed at the start of a new game.

    3. A mode that assigns your first club based on certain guidelines, such as level and nationality. This would give you the opportunity to take on a league or club you would never have thought of (or, indeed, might never even have heard of before).

    My new idea is to be able to get permission from a club to talk to a player, at the moment if you want to talk to a player you HAVE to agree a fee with the club first but in football you do get times when a club agrees terms with a player THEN they try and agree a fee with the selling club, I am sure everyone has heard this before “we spoke to the player and he wanted to come but we could not agree a fee with the club” or “we agreed terms with the player but the club was wanting more than we were willing to pay”

    I think when you click on a players profile there should be an option saying “permission to talk” and if you click it the club can either accept or reject your offer to talk to the player. One option should be you can offer a contract to a player straight away and if he agrees THEN you and the club try and thrash out a deal. If the deal breaks down it can sour relationship between the two managers or clubs, and when you face the team it can add a bit of spice to the game and if you beat them the taste of victory all that bit sweeter!
    Another option is getting permission to talk to the player and just asking if he is interested in a move to your club

    just the place i need to give my suggestion.

    okay im sure all u FM lovers know abt the "opposition instructions" during game match. i dont know if all of u are as anal as i am but i would personally click tell them which players to mark, close down, type of tackle, and show to which foot. this itself takes a few minutes of my time. therefore, i thought maybe having a drop down "set all to.." function would help cut down on the timing. like set all closing town to "always". its easier that way. im just givin a suggestion tho. feel free to disagree CONSTRUCTIVELY.

    You can do it now actually, just tell him 'you are delighted with him' in the full-time teamtalk. Make sure he is the only player to get it and he will be delighted.

    I'm not gonna read through all 34 pages to see what has been mentioned or not so something might be a repeat.

    Feederclubs: When the board come in with suggestions I would like the option to say that none of them are good enough. When playing in the premiere league it is impossible to get your players to move to a team that is too far down the system to be playable.

    Tactics: different arrows for different situations. Like I want to tell my players to go deep to collect the ball from the defense but to fill out on the attack when my offensive players got the ball, now I got one arrow for when we are in possession.

    Team talks: I want it divided so that I can tell them game expectations, first half performance, what I want for the second and how I feel bout the second half and how I feel bout the game. I know it is a lot but if my team goes in to second half down by 4 goals and catches 3 of them up I want to commend them on that even if I'm unhappy with the result in the long run.

    or/and

    A way to comment different sides of the game, like I'm happy with your defensive display but your getting ripped apart on the midfield and the attack isn't getting enough shots off.

    Media: I just left a team I had been manager at for 8 years from July 2007 to June 2015. I had brought them from league one to the premiereship and put them on the 100 richest clubs list. The only thing that told me that I hadn't been given a new contract was that 6 of my backroom staff left when I got released when my contract expired.

    After a spell like that I would assume atleast the local papers to make notice and maybe get a comment from fans and players. Even a note from the board saying thanks for these years but we feel it is time for a change, as it was this time I didn't even get a proper message that got released.

    I would like to see that in FM 2009 you could talk a lot more to the press, many more comments, and most of all I would like to see press conferences both before the match and after.
    Where you get bombarded with questions when you are at the highest level or talk to the local journalist when in the sub-levels.

    Also I would like to see that you could set when to receive the scouting reports from the scout who has watch your up-coming opponents.
    This would be very useful because then you could get some tips what to look for when you yourself are visiting for look att your opponents.
    Perhaps could also set what match the scout is going to attend to.

    Please SI look at this and at least put it under consideration

    Many thanks

    I always thought the scouting system was too exact, I mean I can click on some 15 yr old unknown kid from Cuba and get a scout report on him later that day from my scouts. Suddenly I have all/most of his stats - its stupid. Its too easy to pick up superstars this way

    If I send a scout to watch a youth match to pick up some unknown kids, its ridiculous that I would immediately know how good they are at shooting, heading etc not to mention their consistency, work rate etc etc. I would rather have a variation in the stats.

    The numbers from an unknown player should NOT be correct. They should be based on the scouts ability and the games that they have seen. If I send my scout to watch 1 match and a player has 3 shots on goal and scores all 3, I want the stats to show his finishing/composure/long shots as very high, even if they aren't. If the scout watches that player for another few matches, and he has a dozen shots and doesnt even hit the target in them, then the stats should be adjusted accordingly based on what my scout thinks of them over the few games they have seen.

    Obviously there are players who we see play against us in matches so we can see them playing well, so we should be able to click on that player and enter our own stats for him, chances are these would be incredibly innaccurate, but if we know all the stats for all the players whenever we buy anyone, when will we get it wrong? At what point could we end up as a manger who takes a mid table team and due to bad signings gets them relegated?

    How many times over the years has a big team bought a big name expensive player thinking they would be the best natural finisher the league has ever seen, and possibly end up as the best player in the world, only for them to end up as a subsitute for some second rate team in another country?

    I know thats probably fairly complicated to do, and its probably a ridiculous idea (it makes sense in my head okay?!) but just thought Id mention it

    I agree. I Think it´s rarely a player hwo drops quickly in stats too, take for example Mendieta, sold as perhaps the best right back in the world, to Lazio where he quickly droped to be a mediocre player. Yes of course the enviroment plays a part too, but is rarely shown in drop of stats.
    The world of football are full of these kind of stories so why not in FM?

    1) team talks as they are ruin the game, benitez doesnt have 5 options to pick from at half time so we shouldnt. Tactical instructions should be incorperated and players should be able to be given multiple phrases like...
    'keep your position, hold it as we will get caught on the counter'
    'your playing well'
    and then maybe a team talk to the whole team like they are now

    2) bonding and training tours, every club does it so why cant we, in the same way we pick a feeder club, pick which type of tour we want...commercial (profit goes up, but as its to the US or S Asia, players will get annoyed), team bonding (in middle of season a week in La Manga for example, the team could come back with 100% condition and all with good morale or players occasionally fall out and create a faction in the squad), there could be pre season fitness tours like teams have to Austria and Swiss

    3) instead of 10 youth coaches why not one Youth Director who could, if his reputation was good, lure players from his old club and tell you how the youth section was progressing overall. He could also adivse you on training schedules and his ability to help the club and the youth would be very dependant on his abilitys. In addition to this he can have other youth coaches, some of whom he may recommend.

    4) Staff need more attributes, as do scouts and they can give more detailed reports and the like. the AssMan could give daily breifings to you as to what training was like and how he thinks the team should be playing and ways to overcome the next opposition, if this is to easy for some peoples tastes it can easily be rectified by not having an AssMan

    5) being able to start you management life as a B team gaffer or Reserve manager, and again if people dont like it it wouldnt be an integeral part of the game, you would have less say on signings but may have a good chance of getting the 'big' job when it comes up

    6) pick your own history, if you want to have been a Roy Keane then you can create your history, and the game will judge you accordingly

    I think this would be good in the game:1)You should
    make that every team has displayed its own chemistry level(This would show how players get on with each other)
    2)Then more leagues would be good so you should make playable teams from:Iran,Macedonia,Albania,Qatar,Moldova,and maybe
    some other leagues.
    3)Then I should know who is best striker in African Champions league(like Arsene Wenger heard about Tresor Mputu)
    4)Something about graphic in the background there should be video clip about greatest games in history and present to make game more interesting and you should.
    3)Russian and Ukraine players go outside of country too much in real world that wouldnt be so because their clubs are rich.
    You are saying that your game is most realistic
    and I say that you are right from the other management games your game is most realistic but also I say that it isnt it has too much unrealistic parts that need to be fixed,you have
    made good game but it needs to be more likely to real world it would be better if you would make every league detailed like in real world every league is unique as teams are unique they are different from team to team and also players you are in good way to become a "Champion".
    Listen to our advices!!!!

    1)I'd like to see less bugs, and more attention paid to the f-ing community which made the game great, rather than trying to protect/restrict any potentially damaging actions (fmf?????)
    2)I'd like to be able to shout at my players while in the game even if it would have no real effect on the software. Just for the f-of it.
    3)I want a 3d in the game but not something fancy, just a xyz scale with stick figures or something. That or for the game to stop asking me if it was a handball or a penalty
    4)I'd like to be able to do more extreme stuff without limitations to my players (praising etc)
    5)I want 4 naked women to work of SI next year
    6)I want the players to get into drug problems and such irregardless the following lawsuits.
    7)I'd like to have an option for instant result to speed some really boring games
    8)I'd like the fans-factor to enhance even more
    9)I'd like USA to be removed from the default setup cause nobody cares about MLS
    10)I'd like to see decent leagues in the game of various levels, and my own country (Cyprus) instead of crappy leagues like iceland.

    MOST OF ALL
    I'd really like to be able to add/remove loaded leagues at the end of each season. I don't care how long it would take the software to calculate all the missing data (from start of game untill that time) it's much better than having to have 3-4 leagues running just in case I'll want to play them 20 seasons in the game. It's not that hard to make.

    I also want a job

    interesting ideas. although (6) is not really favoured. i think its better to start as a manager with practically no history. its like starting out as a no-one and then becoming someone.

    I would like to see some new things in the manager 2008/2009,things like:
    1)That agents transfer players.I only put players on transfer list and agents seeks their new clubs.It would be
    also good that agents offer players to the clubs.I would like that I dont have anything with selling players only to suggest price of selling players.Trainers dont have anything with club finances,only managers in England so we in the game shouldnt have.
    2)You should make that players when they come into the club could be immediately transferred to another club especially when some big club is interested in that player.
    3)Fix strength of the clubs
    4)Make that clubs could play friendly matches in the winter in half of the season and that in the start of the season clubs are more willing to play friendlies.
    5)Fix that coaches dont judge about the players in the first year because they didnt saw them playing.
    6)that big clubs dont buy old players or players that dont have ability to play in that club.
    7)that I can send a scout in some country and he stays there until i recall him and there he searches for good players and builds a scouting network like in the real world.
    Also i would like that there is some youth director instead of all those coaches.
    8)To make that there are real players instead of all those blank players with their real attributes and names because teams should be judged for their players and not for reputation of the clubs.
    9)More detailed smaller leagues because they are sometimes better to play then the bigger teams from bigger leagues
    I would like that anyone from Sports Interactive reply to our posts because I think that they dont even read this.There are many people on this forum who have great ideas and who should be listened like that guy Tommy Vercetti who I think have great and realistic ideas that would make game better,but thats just only one guy on this forum who i mentioned I dont say that other doesnt have great maybe better ideas.SI post reply.

    A little something something from me too..

    First of all I want to give my thumbs up for the "chemistry rating" that was suggested in an earlier post.

    I also would like FM to remember my visual match settings, when it comes to split screens, which screen I want the match to open with and so on. It remembers speed and detail, so this can't be to hard to implement I hope?

    When scouting a player (or using scout reports on your own), you will get this conclusion from your scout/coach i.e "he would be a quality signing". As far as I can see this is a quite good answer to how good this player is/or have the potential to be, as long as ones scout/coach is a bit decent. However I want this function to be a lot more dynamic. I've never experienced that a scout or coach has changed his conclusion/opinion, no matter how good or bad a player is doing. I might have a player that I "should look to offload as soon as possible", but who still maintain an average on about 7,5 (which is way better than my other players), but whom my coach still wants me to offload. I know that there are a set value for a players potential and ability, but this value should be able to change if a player starts to play well. My reserve player who plays really good when given the chance, should be able to continue to be a start player, given the right traing and matching, even if he in the database is set to not beeing a player of much potential. If someone think that this is already implemented, please tell me so, but it has never happened to me.

    At last there is also no doubt that board confidence has been a show stopper for many FM-players. I therefore would like SI to implement a function, that I must admit that I see both pros and cons with, but which as a optional setting, my help both frustrated and new players getting more out of the game. How about an option where you can play the game without the club beeing able to sack you. Or at least use maybe three different levels in the game, like "easy, normal and hard", which relies to the potential chance of beeing sacked. Yes I now that this is like cursing in church for some of the forum members, and maybe its even undermining a part of the game, but it should be optional.

    I would like to see post match interviews, but not for friendlies - just cup and league matches.

    I would want more player/manager interaction, especially between players you want to sign, not just saying he is a good player, or you want to sign him.

    Finally, I'd like to see more bidding wars between rival clubs eg Chelsea & Man Utd for Essien, I think it was.


    Off-topic: My first post!

    dont know if this has been suggested before but I would like:
    1. Team Talk,being able to say something to a
    player when I'm sending him in play during
    the match,not just pre-match,HT... I think
    it would be nice if you can tell him somet
    hing like "you can make a difference.."
    2. Better comunication with your staff,it seem
    pretty stupid to me that you can ask your
    players to suggest you a player or a back
    room staff memeber,and you can't ask that
    your assman or a coach who is an ex player
    or has been working in football for a 40 yrs
    for ex. I think this can be very usefull in
    LLM especialy.
    3. I think that someone has suggested something
    like this before,but i couldn't find it so
    here it is,as you can't watch your players
    train,it would be nice if your assman
    could give some kind of a report on how the
    players are training before every match,and
    tell you if someone is working his arse off
    in training,so you should play him or some
    thing like that.
    4. Also i would like to see some stuff related
    to a situation when player move between rival
    clubs,like A. Cole situation,fans booing him,
    player himself gettin nervous or extra motiv
    ated,media building it up etc.
    5. I know this has been said before,but again,it
    would be nice to be able to set your language
    knowledge,without changing nationality. Just
    for the sake of reality.
    I have a couple more things,but I can't remember it right now..
    And also,just to bump "LtCyc" especially on issues 2,3,4,5 ,6 and 9

    I like that idea, It would be a nice feature if you could create a former playing career.

    1.players that are loyal to a club wont leave for money will only leave because of retirement or put on transfer list

    2.make it a more personal(if u dont have any relasionships you can look for a relationship and buy things like houses and cars)

    3.be able to have press conferences like in that old manager game four four two

    4.be able to increase relationships with players

    5.an added carrer mode where you have to start unemployed and have to work your way up from no job to national manager

    6.an added relationship level with the press (if the press dont like what you have said they dislike you and give you questions that can make your carrer harder and if you say something they like they dont ask as hard questions which would make your job a bit easier)

    Fairly cosmetic but I thought of this during England's search for a new manager. Wenger, Ferguson and a few others were asked for advice on choosing the new England manager, perhaps that could be integrated into game. Maybe once you reach 'legend' or whatever the highest repuation level is national teams and even friendly managers could ask you advice in certain situations. Maybe the user could even ask advice from other managers he's on friendly terms with.

    Insuring your star players

    When my 10 million pound winger gets cropped while on international duty, I need to be able to pay his wages for 6 months.

    I need to be offered the opportunity of taking out insurance against serious injury with clauses in the policy or indeed different types of policy for different levels of football and time span/s.
