    SI have said that they want to concentrate on the PC/Mac version of the game, so it's unlikely that they'll be making the game for Nintendo consoles any time soon, especially since they've stopped making the game for the xbox.

    Yeah, and IMO, its not really a game for a games console, its getting more complicated and there is only so far they can take it on Consoles

    I think that maybe even just putting the original FM onto DS and changing it a little bit, upgrading the database would be perfect!

    Something really easy to do: a pair of menu/table with the best 25 or 50 players (world, continental or by nation) ranked by reputation, to have an overview useful for later years.
    Might be useful something similar for managers too (there's something in the actual game, but not well sorted nor detailed, so not useful.

    I think for the next FM they should have an option when you go for a another job while employed,that you can put a private appilcation in or a public one.Maybe sometimes when you place a private application the media find out
    Also i think there should be a bit where you can see whos gone in for the job so you know who you may be up against.
    I think you could see that bit in Champ Man 94-95

    I plead with the programmers to put faces on the tactical screen so I can move them around like Andy Gray
    does on sky sports. I'm sure they haven't done it already because they haven't got the licence (a certain other
    manager series has it). But it would give so much more feel to the game. Even if they just put it in and give an
    option to use it or not so you don't just have blank graphics for faces you haven't got. I live in hope.

    I think that when you go to arrange a friendly, a shortlist of teams should appear who would be willing to play on that day. Arranging friendlies is a little too difficult then it should IMO and this would be a welcome addition which would prevent wasted time. BTW this was phnompenhandy's idea first.

    I think that the FR, RWB, TTB, LS, CB sliders could be 5 points instead of 3.

    There seems to be too big of a gap between the three points.

    when offsides occur, switching to the linesmans view, who should be in line with the last defender, and then stop as soon as the ball is played and show whether he is offside to help managers decide to criticise referees
    Can a manager do that in real life? It's not realistic at all

    a tickbox that says "let ass man do the opposition instructions" !!! Its soo boring clicking all those clicks before each match, but at the same time it really affects the outcome of the game.

    Suggestions for improvements to the game.

    1. Include the crowd in the stadiums so they look full or half empty if it's middlesborough!!


    2. Within the matchday more crowd chants individual to the club would be great, so you feel like your at anfield, old trafford or gigg lane etc...

    3. Realistic stadiums would be good as there is no individuality for any stadium they all look the same not very realistic.


    However the game is great!

    having just seen the damned united. i would like the press-conferences to change the replies so i can create a personality within the game, for example have the same mentalness of cloughie, or the stand off ish of wenger, the cockyness of Mourinho etc. i just want the questions to change so it feels like i can replay indipendantly and to set to the very vague rigid options.

    also the idea to be able to gain other sponsors, for example you in 2034 and you get told the board have sold the stadium rights for £x Million or announce multiple sponsorship deals

    and the league status to actually change so if i manage in ROI i can one day in the future (a LONG LONG way) i get the ROI league up in standards resulting in higher TV revenue big sponsorship side, more willingness to join from better players etc.

    Sorry if this has already been suggested (it's taking too long to search through all 41 pages!!!), along the lines of what acidmonkey said in the above post, It would be good if you could choose the club's sponsors (shirt and stadium sponsors) yourself. Not that the board don't have the clubs interest at heart, but it would provide another element of interactivity into the game.

    For example, in the finance tab you could have a sponsor section which tells you about the status of all current sponsorship deals. And if your shirt sponsorship deal is about to end, you could have a list of all interested parties and what they are offering. You could also have the same structure for a stadium sponsor.

    I wouldnt mind if SI could make the league table graph (when you click on a position not the actual table) like the ones on the skysports news website where it also has all the games theyve played as little dots along the graph, and when you hover over a dot it shows you the fixture and result of that game, like below

    In regards to the confidence system and in particular the fans position within it, it would be nice to perhaps asuade some of their concerns over signings of youngsters which although clearly are bought for the future seems to disapoint them when they don't play, and perhaps when a game hasn't gone your way you could directly ease or confront their stance on it. I think a cool way to do this would be to have something like a managers notes in a programm, like we get at RL football matches, perhaps following a similar system to the press conference,

    ie

    Fans seem to have a growing concern ver the purchase of x player.

    option

    x player has been signed with an eye very much on the future and wll only perhaps appear a few tims this season, but he is definatley a star for the future.

    fans have show unease against the 1-1 draw with team x.

    Although I realise that fans want to see us win everygame sometimes things don't always go to plan.

    or, if you wanted to be confrontational,

    I understand the fans frustration, howevre we are on a terrific run of form at the minute and maybe a little bit of understanding is due from certian quarters.

    Just a little something to help you feel a bit more in control you know.

    Okay, so maybe the manager doesn't actually have control over this in real life, but it would just add something to the game if you were able to pick/have some input into the process of selecting new sponsors.

    What about a better way to know when your oposition make a substitution. Kinda like when a player gets a yellow card or is caught offside and a little screen pop up. So when a substitution is being made this little screen will show first with a red arrow poiting down and the name of the player that is going out, and that screen disappear and another one with a green arrow poiting up with the name of the player that is coming in shows up. I don't think it will be that difficult to make, and is quite an obvious thing that i don't understand why we still don't have it in FM.

    Also, something that i suggested months ago and i'll try again now. In that time bar on botton of the screen, that shows when the highlights/goals/cards happened, we should be able to rover our mouse cursor over the little balls/cards to see who scored that goal or got that card. It could have something like that for substitutions that were made too, so we can see when there was a substitution and who went out and came in.

    Another suggestion, in matches with low attendance we should be able to hear the pitch sounds, you know, those sounds when a players hits the ball. Because since i started playing CM, i always let the volume the same while viewing a match, so i know if the crowd is big or not, but in match with low attendance you don't hear anything, you should be able to at least hear those pitch sounds.

    What i'm going to suggest now might be a bit more complicated, but in real life, at matches with low attendance, the sounds from the crowds are more clear, more specific if you know what i'm saying, while in matches with high attendance the sounds is less clear. It would be good if you could try to recreate that, so that when you view a low attendance match it's not just like the game tuned down the volume, it should sound different also, it could add to the realism of the game. Remember, i'm not asking for actual chants that you can understand what the fans are saying, but in matches with low attendance the sounds from the crowd should be closer to a human voice, while in matches with high attendance you can only hear the crowd voice, if you know what i'm saying.

    I would like to suggest a new filter for the squad page. If your arrive at a new club and it has a large squad your not familiar with, it can be painstaking to look through them all for the best players in each position. It would be nice if you could have a filter that allows you to pick a stat and it shows the players with the highest value in that stat. Or several stats. For example, I want to pick a good DM, so I can select to filter by the highest work rate, determination, tackling and strength. Whoever comes up is my choice!

    I would like it if it was possible for your captain to conduct a teamtalk. Then the qualities you chose him for (ie. influence) can really be used. The players might listen to him if he has a good relationship with them, or ignore him if he is not respected.
    I don't know whether this actually happens much in real life (I don't have access to many dressing rooms!) but I think it might be a nice addition to the game.

    When a team is relegated in real life, the more loyal players sometimes are willing to take pay-cuts in order to keep playing for the club as well as help them out. Doesn't happen in the game but I think it would be a nice touch, perhaps allowing you to see where the truly loyal players are in your squad (or if you have any at all); or perhaps adding positives to that team's favoured personnel for that player.

    been asked to add this to the thread..........



    In future versions can we please have the facility/option to make a change to the penalty taker when you are awarded one..................as it is now you go with pre selected choices...and if you make a change during the game it obviously takes time for them to kick in(no pun intended) ........

    eg.......in a recent game vidic had a brace and I got awarded a pen obviously I had to go with my previously selected option but I wanted Vidic to try for his hat trick he might not get that chance again.

    perhaps a tick box with pre game options could be added.........something like prompt player change for set piece/ with free kicks/corners/pen (so you could leave un ticked and go with pre selected players or if ticked you will be given option to change the taker...my choice would be to leave free kicks/corners as is but pens I would check )

    cheers

    This is perhaps less of a wishlist request, more of a sales idea i guess!

    Some people find football management games too hard and so after one buy and much frustration they don't bother again. These would be people looking for a good and quick chance of success and are likely to be those of a non-patience variety. A good football management sim will lose these customers as a result.

    My suggestion would be to introduce a form of difficulty level option. You can play the game as it is or play an easier version which can be done pretty simply i'd imagine. (Probably well wide of the mark on this one!).

    The easing of the difficulty would be achieved through a reduction of the ability of opposing teams when they face the user. Each player could lose 1 point from each of his visible game attributes on the difficulty level just below a normal game and could be increased to -2, -3 and so on to make each opposing team progressively worse depending on how easy a game the user is interested in. The other teams' ability would only be affected in games against the user.

    Just a thought.

    Here's one I thought up just a short while ago...what about telling you who your shirt sponsors are? For LLM these could be fictional companies or local ones and maybe further up the leagues you could get real sponsors? Would there be a problem with copyrights and things with this? I just think it would give you a clear impression of your teams reputation and give the fantasy kit makers something to play with.

    i would like the facility to pay off any transfer clauses early if i choose to!!

    for example say i owe atletico madrid £200k a month for the next 24 months, but i dont want that money being taken out every month, adding to my bottom line. I would just like to pay them the £4,800,000 now.

    I'd like to be able to tick the "return from holiday when offered a job" box when going on holiday without applying for managerial positions since sometimes i get offered jobs anyway.

    1)I think a good idea, would be to have specific activities for training sessions, meaning:
    Instead of having agility, you can have specific things like bleep test or others
    You can also have an option to choose specific equipment for training
    2) Have players saying that they dont want to play in for example the League Cup as its to low key, so you dont play your starting 11 every game (well not when a player from 11 is injured)
    3)Choose to play a secound 11 or players who do not play in regular fixtures to gain experiance

    would like the option to have something like the 3d game situation for training where you can see training and tell individual players...(on screen with arrows/markers as with a coaching board etc not tell them aim here actually be able to mark on the pitch where to play the ball to) ...where you want ball played/runs/zones you want them to track back to/where to aim free kicks /corners etc etc


    more realistic press/feedback where what you actually say shows up..and not just the pre -selected responses


    Lastly commentary on the game would be great to have a feature like fifa 08 had with Martin Tyler/Andy Gray

    Now, there are about a million pages here and i'm not going to check all of them to see if my idea is already here..

    Does Alex Ferguson do any coaching.? You bet your life he does..
    Does Fabio Capello do any coaching.? You bet your life he does..

    Do all the managers in the game have coaching stats and the ability to coach.? You bet they do..

    DO I.... NOPE...

    How come the manager of a team (ME) not have the ability to coach the players (especially in the loweer leagues where my ability to coach is essential)...

    Isn't football management as much about the importance of working with the players out on the practice pitch as it is buying potential and proven quality, having killer tactics and all that...

    Wouldn't it be great if you could develop the coaching part of being a manager (ALL professional managers need to have the UEFA coaching badge, yet in the game we cannot actually use the pre-requisit skill)... How about giving the manager neutral coaching stats and give him the option to coach.. Let him develop these skills and become a more complete manager...

    Sorry if this idea has been suggested already...

    When discussing terms with a player id like to be able to talk with them rather then just offer a contract to them.

    In other words meet with the player and their agent where i can convince them that my club would be the best club to join. Perhaps ask them to attend a match to watch us play, and talk to them about my future plans for the club etc, in a similer way the press conferences are done.

    id like more player involvement in general. Players talking to the media etc

    Individual 1 to 1s with players to discuss any issues etc. If a player is playing well i want to tell him to his face and not go through the media.

    Improved teamtalks. If im 3-0 up and happy with the display but want us to go and score another 3 i dont want to tell them im pleased as invites complacency but i dont want to tell them to not be complacent as thats like telling them im not happy with the first half display.

    Improved fan interaction with who they like or dont like. Enchanced rivalries for players they dont like.

    An end of week traiing update. If a player is struggling to score goals and is low on confidence but is improving and working very hard in training id want to know. Perhaps training having an effect on form as such. This could also assist with improved training where if a side of a players game is lacking i.e finishing i want to be able to focus on that during training.

    Lastly i really would like a more realistic expectation from the board and fans after matches. Currently im West Ham and by some minor miracle i finished 4th in the PL. In the Champions League i drew AC Milan in my group and not suprisingly the likes of Carlton Cole and Faubert were no match when we played them away. But yet my fans we still annoyed with my 1-0 loss. It seems common a loss will always result in a negative reaction from fans and the board. A touch of realism would be nice here.

    Assistant-manager team-talk feedback. The game (assistant-manager) already gives reaction to team-talk for the first team since FM07. But this has not been expanded for the reserve and Under X teams.

    Only a cosmetic wish, but i would like to see the patterns of your pitch change at the begining of a new season.

    So for a full season you would have lines and then next season the groundsman would change the patterns to circles and so on.

    Getting a bit bored of having squares every single season!

    One idea I thought about was a counter attacking setting, i.e. rather than just ticking the box, you can have a slider for frequency and also team settings for it. I know this would be taxing for us to do, but I think it would certainly improve gameplay.

    The reasoning is, that imagine you're a mid-poor team like Bolton, Wigan and you are against Man United away, now all theories in the game, manual, tips etc say that for you to play counter attacking football you need to play quick, direct and down the wings. However, to play away against the big boys, you need to time waste more, slow the tempo down, play narrow and shorten your passes so as to keep possession away from the other team. So these two ideas conflict each other, therefore, I'm suggesting having a normal setting for when you have the ball but no counter attack is viable, i.e. from a goal kick and another one for when you're faced with only 2 defenders in their half and you have 3-4 players able to break. Players' decision making will certainly play a part in the success of this, but that's the same for every tactical instruction we do. This setting wouldn't be necessary for the eilte teams as they can break and play at the same tempo anyway due to high skill factor, whereas with a Wigan, you wouldn't want to be zipping the ball around over long distances just in the hope you get one counter attack. At the same time you don't want to play slow then have a C.A. chance come up and your players leisurely knock it to defenders and back.

    I don't know what anyone else thinks of this but, would it be a good idea to include the managers private life?
    By this, I mean that maybe all of the contract money that the manager has earned over the years can be kept by the manager. This could then be used to buy better houses, or fancy cars... or the ability to put some of his own fund back into the club...

    Any thoughts? Just an idea...

    Are you joking? If not, people around here do not like that idea (neither do i), so ... go play FIFA Manager :/.

    But seriously, i wouldn't expect manager's private live on FM if i were you, but you never know...

    I would like to see enhancements in how players develop and improve in the game. Right now players basically stop improving around 24, right? Well that's just not very realistic I think. It's well accepted that in real life players don't peak until they're 27-28? Defenders even later, and goalkeepers even later still.

    I think in the current game it says somewhere that goalkeepers don't peak until 30 or something like that. Now why can't that be true for position players as well?

    There are many quality regens born every year in a much higher standard than real life. This means, regens does instantly replaces real life players especially in lower leagues.

    Shortly, regens are over-rated very much.

    If you are managing a team you think can break into the Champs League places in the next couple of seasons, could we possibly add this into contract negotiations?
    Better players may come if the have a clause stating if team x fails to qualify for CL by 2010 then player y will have release clause of £xxxxx. Add to this if team x qualifies for CL in agreed timescale then player y gets bonus of £xxxxx.

    I think it would be a good idea to search for players that 'arrive in the box late', 'shoots from distance' etc etc...

    It would be useful and would certainly narrow down your search, as opposed to clicking on the player, then positions, before seeing his PPM's or alternatively, would save you training him it. Also, you could buy a player and he doesn't want to/fails to learn the move yet with this search facility, you can check who possesses the PPm you're after...

    Don't know if it has been suggested already but in a similar way to getting a loan player report from your assistant, would it not be good to have a free agent/expired contract report?

    Would be good but also impossible, no one could go through EVERY free agent on the game and find good ones. Good idea though, if it was possible.

    Idea copied from it's own thread.

    This is a proposal that ties together possible solutions for a wide variety of common and not so common complaints about FM09 in a single package that I feel has the potential to elevate subsequent versions of this series not just above current complaints but potentially to an entire new level of sports simulation for this franchise.

    One thing that has always been evident to me in Football Manager is that despite the addition of player interaction and staff feedback, the manager has never really felt like he has the elite of footballing knowledge and genius at his fingertips and he certainly has never been able to "talk football" with the games characters in any manner. The greatest tactical and coaching backroom staff in the world do not in any shape or form educate the manager in coaching and tactics; and they should do.

    The CM/FM series has always been as much an educational tool for the footballing enthuisiast as a game in the years I have played it. You always know what youngsters to keep an eye out for in real life if you play this series, you always know the rules and regulations of multiple competitions, and there is a vast historical and statistical database within the game that I doubt any single player every really scratches the surface of throughout a career.

    My proposal stems from the unity of FM as a source of football knowledge, the depth of the games tactical and coaching systems, the problems of getting to grips with these systems and understanding the challenges faced and the solutions available, and my own dissapointment at the lack of backroom staff interaction and a much wider knowledge base included within the game.

    My proposal is the development of an ingame footballing encyclopaedia that contains data relevant to understanding the function of the game from a managerial perspective, and delivering this information to the manager through the medium of club staff. Further the game should track manager behaviour and the behaviour of his opponents and the behaviour of clubs in the managers competitions in key areas and provide feedback regarding trends, assistance regarding weaknesses and advice regarding areas the manager is concerned with, through the medium of club staff.

    In short I am proposing the development of a system of game relevant encyclopaedic football information and vastly expanded perpetual contextual support for the player via the backroom staff.

    An example of this system would be this:

    A manager pulls up his staff screen and looks for the highest Tactical Knowledge attribute in his club. He pulls up the profile of this staff member and clicks on the Tactical Knowledge attribute to reveal a drop down menu. This drop down menu contains the options of Formations : Positions : Tactical Concepts : Tactical Trends of (Your League) : Tactical Trends versus (Your Club) etc. Choosing the option Formations would introduce the manager to a wealth of information regarding Footballing Formations, there real life premises and their relevance and implimentation within Football Manager. This screen would also contain tactical information based upon your own squad and feedback from the staff member regarding the strengths and weaknesses of your players, your squad and your club utilising these formations in your league. In short a tactical discussion with your clubs own tactical guru.

    This would work similarly for all areas of expertise in all staff members. Physiotherapists would educate the manager in the concepts behind fitness and suggest strategies for maintaining condition and reducing fatigue through a drop down menu from the Physiotherapy attribute. He would explain every type of injury in terms of game consequences for the manager, and he would describe both problems and solutions to conditioning and fitness problems for every member of your playing squad when asked or when certain values are reached.


    Obviously such a system would be a vast undertaking but as the Tutorial system shows such a system is in time perhaps inevitable to deal with the problems faced by such a complex management simulation of a real world game where knowledge and advice and communication is an integral part of the entire experience.

    There is one final opportunity and that is to take the entire system of assistance, advice and information online in a wiki format at its basic level where backroom feedback and contextual advice remains the realm of SI developers but where the depth of information held by this system is enhanced by connecting it to the internet and a purpose built football manager wiki. I think this system would supply the only fundamental aspect of management this game lacks in itself, the ability to talk football and learn football within the context of the game.

    wiki-style world. As you progress through a career, each team, player, award, competition has a wiki page. So for a club it might have a brief intro on when the club was founded, some info on how it got its nickname, etc. below that a brief overview of the stadium and manager or a brief listing of all the awards the club has received. Then it might show things like the current squad, etc. It may also have season by season breakdowns, ie. '2010. Man Utd started out strong winning the community shield over Liverpool and winning 7 out of its first 8 in the premiership with Dimitar Berbatov finally showing his quality with a string of 5 straight league games with a goal. However with the loss of Wayne Rooney to a knee injury and other nagging injuries after christmas their form started to decline and despite an epic fight with Arsenal at the end were piqued on the final weekend to finish 2nd ending their 3 year reign as champions of the EPL. They fared much better in Europe...'

    There are endless possibilities here and the great thing is that it would be dynamic and change as your save progressed. You could then have it, say, chronicle the South American leagues while you're coaching in Europe and it may be another scouting system where you start on the Sao Paulo page and end up link travelling as I'm sure we all do and after 20 minutes of journeying through link after link you arrive at some obscure 6'4" 210lb 20 yr old DC who trialed at Corinthians as a 16 yr old but failed to secure a place. Instead he went back and played for his local low-tier team. Then in the Brazilian cup he had a breakout against Gremio where he was man of the match after playing the whole match, getting an assist and being named the man of the match. This synopsis might be listed in his 'season by season' breakdown. It might also list in his opening paragraph that he is a promising youngster and that he is noted as being a determined defender with a great work rate (all info already listed in the game); thus having all this info in one layout/screen in an enjoyable format. You could then say, 'ok, this guy has good size, is young, trialed with Corinthians so at some point he had great buzz/potential, is at a local club so could be got for cheap, was man of the match against a top-tier team, etc. etc. Then if you have money to burn you could send a scout to brazil to check him out. This would satisfy another way to find players, balancing the 'You'd then not be looking at their stats (to satisfy the purists)' or the 'only scouting the opposing players you play against or thus would realistically hear about'.

    Of course this would have to be an option you select when setting up your save but if you have the hd space this would be wicked. Would be great to see your 'world' in this fashion.

    Small teams in obscure leagues might have limited info or appear as a 'stub'. 'Red' names for the current squad, etc. to mirror the greyed out squad players. If a player becomes famous who played at the club it might list them as 'famous players' from that club that you could click their name to link to their player profile page, etc. I think this would add a lot of immersion to the already great series.

    You know that time of year (about 18th June?) when you are given a batch of youngsters, and your Ass. Man picks one as being the 'most promising'?

    I was thinking, what if you could choose which players you want.
    Say you are offered twenty (or so) 15-16 year olds from your local area. But you can only choose ten to be given a Youth Contract at your club.

    This means you could pick the ones you like best, or the ones you think you'll need most in the upcoming seasons. This could remove the randomness of the 'Fresh batch of youngsters' you get each season.
    The rejects? Who knows, maybe one will join your rival , he could end up proving you wrong.
    It probably sounds like a rubbish reality show, but I think it could work well.

    Made a thread about this ("Idea: Youth Academy"), quite good feedback so far

    I'd like to see that when you have an offer for a player accepted by a club and have offered a contract, then at the 11th hr another club has a bid accepted. If the other club's contract offer to the player is more lucrative to the player than the one you have offered, then rather than you just losing out on the player instantly, the players agent should approach me saying 'club x has offered my client x amount per week with y and z bonuses, do you wish to make a counterbid?

    I was thinking of something like this myself. Perhaps academies set up around the world. Id also like to see scouts find youngsters playing at school level, maybe 14 years old or something like that who you can ask to play for your academy. The youth academy idea is great.

    Lightbulb FM10 Ideas. What would you like in FM2010

    Apart from all bugs fixed what would you like in the new FM10 I know it’s still early to think about FM10 but have your say in what’s FM09 is missing

    1. I am still a fan of being an ass Manager and control the res, also give feed back to the manager on your players and recommend players to him.

    2. You should be able to buy a player and have the option to send him back to the club your getting him from as part of the deal. (Like the man utd deal when they got Ben Foster)

    3. Half time and full time team talks you should be able to have both ass man and manager say something to the team and also say things to 1 or 2 players instead of 1 or the other like it is now.

    4. When you make subs you should be able to talk to the players you bring on and off tell them what you want them to do or why you took them off.

    5. Have a grounds man who looks after the pitch and reports back lets you know if it needs relaying or not the better the grounds man the better the pitch.

    These are just a couple of my ideas you might like them you might not you also might have your own ideas so just for fun let us know.

    I think we should have more control over the size of the pitch, I would like to pick a pitch which is shorter than most but wider, but you can only do this with a new stadium

    After the thriller of a game at Old Trafford yesterday (Man Utd v Villa) I have never seen free kicks from inside the penalty area for a backpass to the keeper....has this been mentioned?

    Or perhaps...its in the game, but i havent come across it yet.

    After posting in this thread http://community.sigames.com/showthread.php?t=116453


    I would like the opportunity to be able to build youth camps in the game. For example I could build one in Brazil and get a selection of youth players to pick from for my youth team.
    Somebody mentioned that it was used in total club manager? but it was not used to its full potential so I am hoping FM will take it to its maximum!

    I'm 90% sure it is in the game, but it barely ever happens irl so that is the same in the game.

    Yeah, I really like this idea. Maybe the arrow system could be used, if they are confident a ^ should appear on the 'Select Penalty Taker' screen, if they aren't then a v on it. If they are neither, a > could show.

    Really like that idea

    After playing FM09 solidly for 10 days now, I would like to see the following for later versions. In no particular order of significance:

    1) Stadiums that aren't just grey, and look realistic. Maybe even have crowds that start jumping when a goal is scored, or have banners in!

    2) A better set of default tactics, so developing them is less of a chore for those who just want to get straight into a game, and those that do want to change them have more of an idea of what good settings are. Maybe also have a choice of tactic styles packed in as well so players can see how to get teams playing like their real life equivalents e.g. Barcelona 4-3-3.

    3) A greater choice of skins packed in, or at least one light and one dark. Plus the ability to ability to customise text colours.

    4) The difference between the 3 mentoring options to be explained.

    5) More differences in managerial styles. Wheeler dealing, veterans vs youth, whiny or honest, nomadic or loyal, passing vs hoofball. The differences in managers could could be made more distinctive.

    6) Players having the ability to be retrained to other positions and be natural in them. It happens in real life, that players end up in positions they werent playing at 16.

    7) Boards that take into account past successes. At the moment, it seems that seasons are a bit one-shot, it would be nice if you could build up board trust like Wenger/Ferguson has, for example.

    8) Trophy presentations, where you see you little captain pick up the trophy and go on a lap of honour.

    9) When selecting assistant reports, being able to select any coach and not just your AM.

    I would like their to be interim managers, have meetings with the board discussing transfers, the team and all the other stuff related to the club. You should be involved in everything related to a transfer such as discussing with the player with the contract. There should also be profiles to the players such as cars they own and property portfolio. There should also get a license for the Germany team. When you are managing a National Team, your assistant should recommend you players to pick. There should be a list of players who are playing well and a list of players who are not playing well. When it shows your opponent and who's players are unavailable and injured, it should show the manager, a report of their recent run of form and any players they have signed recently. When clubs go into administration, there should be a wage deferal what southampton have had to do. Also your scouts should recommend you which players are good enough to buy within your budget and also before a game starts, it should show a picture of the stadium. Also Hull City's Stadium Name needs to be changed because it is called the circle instead of The KC Stadium. Also when you go into administration, it should show who the administrators are. My other ideas are: better 3d view, Trophy Room, better manager interaction,more room for extra comments in press conferences,completely realistic transfers,the chairman should hire a sporting director who should take care of your transfers and recommend you players i.e Dennis Wise, there should be more research on the youth teams and the younger players in the lower leagues and you should be able to win red card appeals+ you should be allocated a transfer budget for January.

    id like more player involvement in general. Players talking to the media etc

    Individual 1 to 1s with players to discuss any issues etc. If a player is playing well i want to tell him to his face and not go through the media.

    Improved teamtalks. If im 3-0 up and happy with the display but want us to go and score another 3 i dont want to tell them im pleased as invites complacency but i dont want to tell them to not be complacent as thats like telling them im not happy with the first half display.

    Improved fan interaction with who they like or dont like. Enchanced rivalries for players they dont like.

    An end of week traiing update. If a player is struggling to score goals and is low on confidence but is improving and working very hard in training id want to know. Perhaps training having an effect on form as such. This could also assist with improved training where if a side of a players game is lacking i.e finishing i want to be able to focus on that during training.

    Lastly i really would like a more realistic expectation from the board and fans after matches. Currently im West Ham and by some minor miracle i finished 4th in the PL. In the Champions League i drew AC Milan in my group and not suprisingly the likes of Carlton Cole and Faubert were no match when we played them away. But yet my fans we still annoyed with my 1-0 loss. It seems common a loss will always result in a negative reaction from fans and the board. A touch of realism would be nice here.
    totally agree with all your ideas, especially the ones about agent involvement...another thing which annoys me is when you buy youngsters who arent good enough to get in the first team, you get slated in the club confidence section as the players arent playing!!

    Mentioned before, but the Arrange Friendlies option needs looking at.

    I'm tired of arranging a tour of England only to find they're all rejected because those clubs have games either side of my planned dates.

    The AI rejects it every time, so why do i have to request a Friendly everytime? There should be a pre-check built in:

    'Doncaster Rovers are unlikely to agree to your Friendly Game request as they have a game 2 days later"

    Something simple like that would save constant annoyance from FM07 08 and 09

    This is just a small idea, but it would be good if when a player returns from a long injury, it could be mentioned in the match commentary, something like "Wayne Rooney is coming on to replace Carlos Tevez, and the Manchester United fans look delighted to see him after 4 months out".

    Not sure if any SI staff are reading this, but here goes my wish list:

    1. Make a complete game.

    Bugs will always be inevitable in computer games but please minimize it to a minimum and try to eradicate any game-spoiling bug. I believe all of us gamers here would rather have a slightly improved match engine that works just fine then one that was overhauled to be more realistic yet contains a bug which spoils the game. Having said that, it's good to aim high and aim big. Otherwise we would still be watching 2d circles running around the pitch. Make sure it works. =)

    2. Features vs. "Cleanliness"

    In SI's words, I hope they can take a close hard look at the next FM and remove any deadwood "redundant code" or make it more efficient to improve processing speed. I'm sure many fellow FM-ers would agree on this point. Personally, I would prefer less features be introduced if it means the game is cleaned up nicely.

    3. Surprise us

    Kudos to the SI team for the many great surprises such as the April Fool's day joke and the SI staff personalities. A refreshing feature from the somewhat mundane football managing (after 20+seasons). Please continue with this feature.

    4. FM Genie Scout

    From the download hits of FM Genie Scout, I'm pretty sure most of my fellow FM-ers are enjoying a successful managerial career thanks to the hard work of Eugene (creator of Genie Scout). For myself, Genie Scout is fundamental to my enjoyment of Football managing. Without it, I'm a blind man trying to find his way out of a maze. Here, I would like to plead with the SI team to help out Eugene in his development of Genie Scout. (I recall him mentioning once that a certain database format file would greatly speed up his development process)

    5. Poverty

    Just a cheeky request for the SI team to consider reducing the price a little. It certainly goes a long way for a student like me playing FM. I'm guessing it would provide more incentive for FM-ers to continue buying the series amidst this global financial turmoil rather then them turning to piracy.


    Just my two cents worth of thoughts. Constructive criticisms are very much welcomed.
    I apologize beforehand if I offend anyone with my remarks unknowingly.

    Really really really need "save training selections"!!!

    Before a new season start,I need all my players focus on fitness train;Then when season start,I need them all back to the schedules I assigned them for dailly training.

    It is NOT a easy job when you have a lot of players,a "save training selections" will be really helpful

    Smile Call Press Conferences

    Hi SI people, I had an idea about press conferences for 2010.

    In real life, clubs can call press conferences (as opposed to being called to them by journalists) to announce things, so why not do so in FM?

    You could do it to announce new players, sponsors, stadium developments etc etc, OR to announce player finings to really reinforce the message that their performance/actions were not acceptable, OR to have a general rant, á la Rafael Benitez!

    Also, you could use it to launch PR stuff, such as (daft examples, but I can't think of anything else today!) Fan Days (with reduced ticket prices), or wearing different kits, like my Oldham wearing pink kits for a one off match, for charity!

    Obviously the PC would have an effect on the player, e.g. "Player believes he deserved his fine, and thinks Manager was justified in making the public aware", or "Player was upset about the fine to start with, and feels upset and humiliated."

    I've done some concept graphics for the idea:

    How about your scouts or ass manager, coming to you with a list of players that would be intrested in joining your club who are on a bosman.

    Also please make it alot more easy to arrange friendly matches, am sick of trying to make a tounament or go on tour with teams always saying no. A list of teams intrested and how much it would cost for home matches would be good.

    The option to send coaches to watch my next opponents, maybe not crucial but I'd trust a coaches oponion on a teams tactics, strengths & weaknesses over a scout who should only be interested in finding me the next world talent.

    How about this idea for national team managers:

    - Player Interaction:
    - Declare your interest in selecting {player_name} for {nation_name} when he's eligible for {nationality} nationality within the up-coming months.

    This would also help players who "sees no benefit" of getting the nationality to get it.

    Another one for the national team managers:

    - Player Interaction:
    Tell {player_name} that if he's serious about his international career he should look to move to another club that can offer more first team football.

    Sorry for the multiple post but these ideas just keep popping up after I submit my last post.

    The thing I hate about some smaller nations is that when they go into a big international tournament (e.g. The World Cup) If you have a smaller db, don't have retaintion of some nations, or if you don't use a DDT file then some of the smaller nations from Africa or Asia will have a bunch of grey players for the squad. Which is fine but sometimes the grey players turn out to be quite decent and you may want to actually sign those players but you can't because they are randomly generated and will disappear right after the tournament. Why don't we allow an option where if a country makes it to an big international tournament and if their team does not have enough real players, just generate some random players and put them in some clubs in that country. This will make sense because let say you're an average player from an unknown low rep african country playing for a local side then you probably not heard of before, which is sorta like being a grey player. Then your country makes it to the world cup and you're suddenly in the spotlight, and if you country has one of those fluke world cups (like senegal in 02) then other teams may actually go and try to sign you. But right now you can't because the team is usually fill with a bunch of grey players.

    This could be implemented by putting an option in the start up screen next to the "retain players from nations:" and have a checkbox called "retain random generated players for national team". I could even see this option expanded to make other small nations manageable for nations with less than 150 players. Something like a "Make all nations manageable" or "Make the following nations manageable" and let the user select the nations (kinda like the retain players from nations option)

    More accurate staff search/player search - as the Assistant no matter how good he is, will never actually give you a FULL list of interested players/staff.

    I have to use Genie to get exactly what i want.
