    I just have listings for free kicks, corners, penalties, and influence under View-->Attributes.

    My suggestion is to include long throws under View-->Attributes as well.

    I would quite like to see a feature where you could buy Brazilian under 18s in advance like what Man United did with the twins - Rafael and Fabio. This would be quite a nice little feature I think.

    Id like to see when you are a international manager club managers recommending there players. They could do this privately but if you reject they go to the media and depending on the player the fans could start demanding they are in the next squad.


    When you are a club manager it would be nice to have an option to recommend a player to an international player.


    Id also like to see the transfer market become easier to get rid of players. There was a case where i offered a plyer out eventually on a free but other clubs said no. So i ended up realsing him only for real madrid to offer similar wages and sign him on a free.

    Denying promotion would be pointless of course in FM. (and it's stupid IRL too).
    It used to happen in CM01/02 if you were a conference team and didnt have a good enough stadium to be promoted to div 3

    1. Really like that idea of having the option to be an Assistant Manager, could be asked on decisions like out of the two players who should play? If you choose a player and he plays well then maybe this could be how you build your reputation at first, or if you make a player happy at the club following a bust up or poor form.

    2. Also the referee table should be shown in the match screen, otherwise you have to go back and forth to see if the ref favours home, away give pens or lots of red cards etc.

    3. Favoured personel for managers should be there and could be picked throughout the game by yourself. Staff or Players.

    4. Having a choice at the start of working your way up and earning coaching badges, which would be required to manager higher up. Like the Uefa badge need to manager a team in european comp. Could start as Assistant for league two side and work way up to being able to apply for managerial posts. Obviously could be complicated but this could just be a option that you choose to tick or not at the start like the start unemployed tick-box.

    5. Interviews, like aims for the club when taking over, or at the start of each year. When you leave a club, they should ask why, and your future plans. E.g Time out of the game, international management or another club wants you.

    6. The Plans for the future and general happiness should be able to be used so we could set our happiness at the club or plans for the future.

    Very cosmetic but I would like to see kits change.
    I realise this could throw up problems but it would be cool to see them change.

    It would also be cool to have some say on the matter i.e. you are presented with several options and get to make a recommendation. I realise irl managers don't have a say with kits but it would be sweet.

    I quite agree with Monsterhyde2 about this,

    As a "newbie" we need help to get thrashed & a lot more patience from people who have been playing the game for years.

    Perhaps a specific thread from newbies could be set up so that we can get helpful tips from people who want to help us & those that want to moan can ignore us

    more website than game related, but i think SI would benefit from a 'newbies' forum.

    The ability to do filtered searches for players by current wage and reputation would help.

    Also, increased ability to view player stats in general from the Tactics screen.

    A better ability to edit the game, failing that make it possible to have a proper league system had up of International teams where you can't have transfers due to nationalities so have to rely on brining up better youths to improve.

    How about a couple more stats from the game. In the A League, they use a stat called Balls in Penalty Box which I think is a very good stat to get more of an idea of how your team is attacking.
    And also, how about an individual stat to see how many kilometers each player runs in a game. That would really see how much work rate a player does.

    Re: searching by current wage, it may also be helpful to allow "sorting" by current wage when on the general player search screen. Future wage demands are generally similar to current wage demands for most mature players, so this sorting/filtering can help a manager determine more easily which potential signings will (a) fit under his projected wage bill and (b) will satisfy the per-player salary constraints imposed by the board.

    Also, it would be very nice if we can temporarily assign players to alternate training schedules other than "Rest." e.g., we may have a standard "Striker" training that we assign our forwards to, but after a particularly intense game, we may want to assign a player to "Light Striker" training for 2-3 days. That way, the player gets the benefit of a less-intense workout session, but his stats will not drop as much as if he were simply assigned to rest for a few days.

    How about a lower position within the framework of the team

    IE Like Ass Man who can then either take control of Reserve Teams or Youth Teams especially for Newbies to work their way up the Managerial Ladder

    I think that for fm08 their should be the following:
    1) Possibility of employin General Managers at clubs to run the fianancial side of the club so you can focus more on the playing side (lyk hat Sammy Lee wants to do at Bolton)
    2)In modern day football agents are a lot involved in transfers in fm08 how about the possibility of includin agents in the game some way or another ?
    3) on the game you are informed you are on a wage eg: at newcastle im on £25,000 a week but were does this money go ? couldnt their be a managers bank acount and then you the player could do stuff with this money eg: invest into the club or even consider buyin a club yourself and running it as chairman ?
    4) Ino i just said it above and the game is Football manager but what about the possibility of not bein a manager on the game and being a chairman aswell ?

    ne way just afew thoughs their that i think would be good

    This more like a Director of Football in case of like Arsenal had with David Dein and Tottenham have with Commiell and Chelsea have with Peter Kenyon. As there reposinable for sorting tranfers out and getting the price they want play for.

    I would like see the incluse of Contracts neoigations in place for International Managerment. At moment you get offered the job and accept or turn down. Should be more like real life and club version. They should offer you wage, Signing on Fee, Length of Contract, then Bonus money for Winning one of big cups.

    5* Teams to always have a way to get players their match fitness back if they don't have a reserve fixture list.

    6* Young players to not be so negative when learning from good international expierienced teamates.

    7*Build a relationship with another manager and having the option to choose a them as a feeder team,instead of leving it to your board.Being able to suggest a feeder club.
    yes to number 7!!

    i have a few.

    1) a minimal one which has been suggested, stop the ball sticking to the back of the net (not a huge problem, but annoying all the same especially after the comment "he loves to power them in"

    2) when you put a player in reserves until match fitness returns, make sure they actually return!! too many times, theyve rotted in reserves for a month or two after a minor injury that should only require a week or two

    when a player gets sent off - stop comments like "he's having to be dragged away by his team mates" when there isnt another player within 10 yards of him

    Name me one person who wouldn't skip every single on of these after watching them a few times?

    Personally I'd skip them after the first time without fail.

    If you want to hear national anthems and competition themes, buy a CD and play them yourself.

    If you want a trophy celebration then here.

    Why on earth would you want to watch two rows of blobs walk past each other at the beginning of a match?

    It can't be released earlier.

    It needs to wait for the summer transfers to be completed so it can be up to date, and that's Septemeber already. Then it has to collate all that information, implement it and test it. Once everything is seen to be ok they have to send the game off to manufacture, which isn't quick.

    October is pretty much the earliest you can expect an up-to-date football management game.

    just a couple of things that i'd like to see added to FM08, would be.

    - On the manager stats screen it says league and cup wins, i think this should go into more detail, such as how many promotions and relegations you have had in you career this would be a great small addition.

    - On the match day with attendance of the game there should be a figure for away attendance as well, and maybe have a average attendance league in the league stats. On the club info screen, the clubs capcity, should also inclube away capcity.

    Sorry, I haven't the time to read 19 pages but, forgive me if this has been suggested already, more feedback on games would be useful, both during and after.

    During the game it would be helpful if you could find out not only what formation the opposition is playing but also the style of play. This need not always be accurate, mistakes could be factored in depending on the stats of the assistant manager. Information along the lines of:

    The opposition are closing down very vigourously today, or

    The opposition are playing a high defensive line, or

    The opposition are playing a very direct style.

    I don't think the 2D graphics really convey this information sufficiently, although it is something that a manager would be able to tell watching a game.This way you would be able to counter the opposition's tactics more rationally. You would also be able to pick up tips from successful computer opponents by analysing more closely how they play. Surely this is something which real managers do.

    Perhaps more interaction with the Board. Like telling them that signing a mediocre 29 year old midfielder for £18M is not the best piece of business ever. Particularly when I already have at least six players at the club younger and better in his position.

    I quite fancied lambasting the chairman in the papers but had to make do with transfer listing the player and dumping him in the reserves.

    Specific training
    I'm not the biggest fan of the new training SI implemented, that's not to say it should be removed, more that I think it's too vague.

    How about being able to tell a player to improve a certain area of his game?

    At the moment I have no decent free kick specialists, the best I have is poor to say the least, yet unless I buy a player to fill that role I'm stuck.

    Why can't I say for example, I want you too...

    Work on your free kicks
    Do extra speed training
    Practice penalties

    etc etc.

    I know that I *could* set up a whole new training schedule for him, but that's no guarantee that he'll work on those specific areas.

    Loaning club feedback
    At the moment, we don't hear anything from a club that is loaning our players, either during or after the loan, would it be a bad idea to make it so they did?

    If we send a player on a season long loan, a once a month review would be nice. Something along the lines of...

    Player X has been brilliant for us this month, if he keeps improving like he his, he's a star for the future

    Player X has had a poor season, his performances have dropped and he's not playing as well as we'd like or as good as he can be

    Player X has been injured this month, he is recovering well with our physio's

    Or end of season review...

    Player X was an integral player for us, his performances have helped to qualify for Europe. We really think that his performances at this level means that he you should consider him for your 1st team next season

    Player X had a poor season, although he's young, we don't see him featuring for a club of your stature in the future


    Loan player attributes
    Can we have it so we can see how our players are improving whilst on loan? The little red and green arrows would be great. If you want, only implement it if we have scout reports active, as they're being watched every game, so the scout should be able to see how they're improving.

    I would like to see:

    1) innapropriate chairman interference, ok when a chairman steps in to sign a world class player thats fine, or when he sells for a ridiculous over price on a player.

    But in my game ive had chairman accepting measley 20m for top class players, despite finances being very healthy,eg arsenal over 300m in bank but accepts tottenhams offer for 20m despite him being a young english prospect.

    2) There should be a award section on players achievement cleary showing medals won by player, maybe represented by picture

    I'd like to be able to do the exact opposite:

    Be able to worry only about transfers, tactics and all, but be able to leave the games to the ass man. right now, one can go on holiday, but it's a bit cumbersome.

    Proper Team numbers for Friendlies/Internationals.

    I'm fed up with having one of the midfielders being number 9!

    Make it
    1;
    2,5,6,3;
    7,8,4,11;
    9,10

    Rather than
    1;
    2,4,5,3;
    7,9,6,8;
    10,11;

    Or whatever ridiculous numbers thay take at the moment.

    Or, which might be easier, just prompt for squad numbers to be decided before each friendly/international.

    That would make me happy.

    I think FM should put hidden scenarios within the game, totally random things happen about 3 or 4 seasons in.

    Something similar to these real world examples..

    The match fixing scandal that hit Italy

    The Tevez/Mascherano affair

    etc etc

    Possible rule changes
    I have suggested for a while now that SI should consider putting in rule changes, well sensible rule changes.

    Such as:

    Increasing number of subs in England from 5 to 7.

    Removal of away goal ruling.

    Number of relegation/Promotion places increased/decreased

    Number of foreigners regulated.

    Homegrown players for the league.

    All these are ideas that have been discussed in real life, if they were to be introduced by the game, they would be introduced with several years notice in some cases (such as homegrown players) and in intervals.

    I think it would be good, as has been shown, some players play up until 2040 and the rules in the game stay the same, which as we know in real life doesn't happen.

    I assume its been said a million times in here, but all i want is smaller save files (uncompressed, to take the load off ram).

    Press conferences would be cool but arent nessesary, unlike smaller save files are in my opinion.

    there is one thing i'd like to see in the game next time;

    Under the move to affiliate option you should be able to pick an option which specifies for how long, eg until work permit/2nd nationality gained. It seems to me that they would then not have to waste time coming back to you in the summer, and gain the 2nd nationality quicker, and i think it would be relatively straightforward to include.

    Just an idea for the future game.

    It is fairly common in real life for teams with youth academies to basically cull the players from their squad that they won't feel won't make the grade. Many use an approach where they basically tell the player to find himself another club before his contract / scholarship finishes e.g. usually February / March time. The player then has trials at other clubs to try and win a contract there and if he is successful, he is released early and he signs.

    In FM 2008, I would like to have an option where you can say to a player who has 4-6 months to run on his contract basically to find himself another club. With this, the players agent then approaches clubs and basically tries to line a club up for his employee at the end of his contract, basically in bosman . This can be applied for youth teams and also first team players who do not feature in your squads.

    Just a quick thought on the option to let the Assistant Manager's take the team talks.

    I'd like the option to step in at half time of a match if we're in a crisis situation or if it's a desperately important situation that you feel the Assistant Manager can't handle.

    Just at half time where you move the mouse over Reggina tactics and get 'Quick' and 'Detailed' an added on 'Take Over Teamtalk' option would be good.

    Also, being able to use your money to buy into clubs.... You wouldnt be able to buy many shares in say Arsenal, and when you take board votes etc (which would have to be included also) your votes wont count for much at all, but if you spent a bit on a lower club, you could vote yourself chairman and run the club (not tactics however, that would be your manager) how you wanted, assinging transfer budgets, wage budgets, even buying players a la chelsea and shevvy. How awesome would that be?

    what I want: shirt #13 available if you want it in friendlies. I think its a bit harsh not having the choice to use it.

    Seen it mentioned but I woudl like to re-iterate: More sensible AI squad numbering, also change the tactics around so that the defaults end up with more sensible squad numbering. We all know that #7 and #11 send to be MR and ML, with #9 and #10 usually being forwards, but this is not reflected in the tactics. I have had to spend about half an hour at the start of every incarnation of FM just to tweak all the basic tactics I use to reflect this. I know its a cosmetic thing more then anything but its the little things that make the difference.

    I woudl also like to see more interaction with the squad captain, maybe having a big hoo-har over who the captain is. How about when you join a club, you are asked to pick the team captain. Say you are told who the current captain is and asked if you want to keep the current one. Then if the captain leaves the club, you are then asked again. You could also make a big fuss if you decide to strip the captain of the arm band for whatever reason.

    Ok im done....

    I'm guessing this has already been mentioned many times but......I'd like to see more interaction with the Assistant Manager during the match. It'd be nice to have a half time cuppa and discuss where the team is failing before letting rip on the players for 10 minutes or so.

    Also more importance put on the captain. I'd like to be able to appoint a club captain from the start of the season. He could then be used to get the players together if the team was in relegation trouble.

    Don't know if this has been mentuioned.

    I would like to have a physio report on players that pick up an injury duing the game, but are not taken off automatically. It should give me some indication whether i should take him off immediately or continue

    This is probably mentioned to, but I find it ridicoulous that you can know more about scouted players than your own. For example you can get a long in-depth report on a 16 year old playing in africa, but your own english 18 year olds are only reported as decent players and such...

    Now in correct thread. How about prospective manager interviews?

    If you're applying to a club much bigger than what you've normally managed, or you have a chequered history, then the club’s board could invite you to an interview rather than rejecting you out of hand. It gives you that extra chance of managing a big club.

    The club could ask you a number of questions and you would have to pick from multiple choice answers. Now different boards have different needs and expectations, so you could not be able to get away with giving the same answer every time you were asked a specific question because what’s a good answer for one club might be a poor answer for another.

    So for say Derby, you might be asked “What type of players would you bring to the club, a couple of high profile superstars or a larger number of more solid Premiership players?” Now the right answer for Derby might be more solid players, whereas a bigger club with greater ambition, such as Tottenham or Newcastle might want superstars. But there again, depending on past form and who’s running the club at the time, you can’t be sure. You would of course need a very wide variety of questions and an even wider variety of answers, much more so than the current team talk comments.

    Of course manager interviews would probably have to be an option otherwise people who want to manage very big clubs from the off might never get past the interview stage.

    Interesting or just frustrating?

    I was going to comment on a manager as he's insecure in his job. But on the team screen I accidentally clicked 'Declare interest in j...' rather than 'Manager comment'.

    When you apply for a job you have to click OK on the 'Are you sure?' window, I would very much like an 'Are you sure' for declaring interest as it's pretty much the same thing and now I've had to load a previous save and re-do a match.

    - give the possibility to move all individual sliders at once for all players in the same direction (especially for individual mentalities)

    - rethink the friendly games system. This is especially important for reserve teams in leagues where they don't have any games. What I want is to tell my assman the dates at which I want to arrange friendlies and he should do the rest

    - when sending a player to the reserves to improve match fitness you should be able to specify priorities regarding their introduction in reserve games, e.g. player X has a priority of 1 (meaning he is to be introduced no matter what unless injured) etc.

    - completely rethink the whole reranking/Ai tactical learning system. It's ridiculous that every time at around 11 January and at the end of the season everyone has found the magic solution to counter you.

    I think that there is an unrealistic pause when a goal is disallowed. For example, its sheff u 0-0 watford. In injury time Marlon king puts the ball in the net, the team runs into the corner to celebrate but its disallowed. Sheff u get the ball and wait until watford are in posistion before they take the free kick. Surely in such circumstances the second they hear the ref's whistle they would catch watford off guard and play on

    I would like to see the following things incorporated into the game:

    Shirt numbers being retired after a special player retries by special player I mean a player who has won the golden Boot on numerous occasions like i saw in the records thread in other words it is given out rarely because this rarely happens in real life.

    Or maybe a message saying that a clubs ground, stand, nearby street or statue has been named after a special player.

    And new signings saying they would loved to achieve what x player has achieved.

    when you get a scout report it comperes with your best player in that pos...
    i'd like the option to choose which player you can compair with as it would make it easyer to know if they are good einough for your team.i.e better than your other stricker of sub defender.

    also more interaction with chairmen with season expectations in league and cup, to help with how much tranfer budget they offer you.

    captian having more interaction with you regarding player unrest ect..

    what someone said before about sending player to feeder club till they have gained work permit istead of keep comong back at end of season.

    more squad retation for AI managers like Liverpool manager who hardly ever picks same team. but in game almost always same team in cup and league
    and me to receive free copy of game when finished lol only joking...

    Support for Goalscoring Goalkeepers!

    Ability to track goals / assists like regular players, in terms of on the season tab next to the apps, average rating etc - but also on the history tab.

    The ability to have a defender who could stand in the goal mouth and cover for your keeper taking the free kick. Obviously the player will stand a pretty good chance of getting his body in front of the ball and cut down on the 75 yarder goals!

    Also, it'd be interesting if we got slightly less-relevant news bulletins. e.g. From time to time a famous club legend from the past could die perhaps. Maybe you could release a statement expressing your best wishes to the family and that would improve your fan support. Or you could organise a memorial match.

    Sorry.....don't know how to edit my previous posts. This will probably never happen, but it would be interesting if you could do things, which could result in punishment by the Premier League. Think Tevez, or fielding an ineligible player. Of course, the ineligible player bit would be fine for Conference but it is unlikely to go unnoticed in Premier League.

    clubs should accept offers for players for around their original value and we should not have to pay two or three or even four times what a player is worth to sign him

    I want to sell my players a little bit easier, not to be forced to release half of them because I have 200-300 players. Even when they are on TL for free not even a weak, low division team doesn't want them. It's so unreal.

    A better transfer in/out system would be nice.

    *When you qualify for Europe , it should be easier to attract players. Especially the better players from weaker clubs. They should put more pressure on their club to sell them , because they would like to join your club who plays in Europe. Especially the Champions League should have a big appeal.

    I agree as well, also when the player is through and instead of running straight for the goal, he runs out wide and away from the goal and ends up crossing it or losing the ball completely! It is nice when sometimes the player does score in these situations though but this seems way too rare.

    Improved International Management

    Every single year people cry out for this, but I think SIGames are struggling to see how they can improve this feature. To a degree I can see why, but there are areas that can be improved. Take a look at this article to see some suggestions, including a few of my own.

    In game team talks

    We’ve had pre, half time and post match team talks: so what about in-game team talks? We’ve all seen managers shouting orders from the touchline, but we are ristricted to altering the style and formation of the team. How about a few more personal comments during the match? A quick press of the tactics button, and you could choose to give Lampard praise for his goal, or warn Traore to get more focussed after a bad tackle. Player instructions could also be combined with these, so rather than selecting a player’s mentality, you could tell him what to do.

    Perhaps the following options could be made available:-

    Instruction for Steven Gerrard:-
    - Keep it up!
    - Push forward!
    - Pull back
    - Show your displeasure in his performance
    - Tell him he needs to improve
    - Warn him to cool down
    - Etc etc

    Two leg competition problem fixed

    You might not have noticed it, or, like me, you scream whenever this happens. After winning the first leg of that all important game, you go into the second leg on a high. Yet by half time, you are losing, and find yourself just one goal ahead on aggregate when you really should be way out in the lead. So what can you say to the players at half time? Get your arse in gear, lads? Nope - you can say something along the lines of ‘Great performance!’. You see, the game thinks that you are winning 2-1, which you are on aggregate, but on the day you are behind. I like to win every game - who doesn’t - yet I’m giving the impression that a 1-0 deficit is great!

    Fantasy Mode

    Most of the big improvements have been made now, let’s be honest. We have match team talks, 2d engines, scouting systems, affliations and more. So how about a few fun improvements? Perhaps when loading a new game you can select from a choice of missions or fantasy leagues, pre-made by SIGames and already available to play from launch? Imagine a 1989 league, with the correct teams and players? Perhaps the choice to create your own dream leagues from the game itself, without having to mess about moving teams in the editor? Simply choosing twenty teams, and playing the league. Something similar to this has been included on the XBox 360 version’s multiplayer mode, and this would be a great addition too for multiplaying and single games on the PC too.

    Improved Media Interaction

    Every year this aspect of the game improves and expands, but many feel that the current system of interaction just isn’t enough. I played a game with a Championship side, and before every single match I was asked by the media for my thought before kick off. Every single time I was limited to the same five comments, and nearly always gave the same response (something along the lines of, ‘Team X are good, but if we play well we can beat them.’. How about much more choices of quotes? Big game build up? I’ve had times when I’ve been a big Premiership side taking on a non-league club in the F.A Cup, yet while the game would have been covered to death in real life, again only one question is asked of me before kick off.

    Improved Transfer Window

    This could be part of the above suggestion, but I do feel it warrants a paragraph of its own. We are now into the late end of January and every few days we have seen some quite large transfers, many rumours, and nervous biting of fingers from those clubs desperate to hang on to their talent. Yet come January in Football Manager world, all we tend to receive are the run of the mill transfer rumours, and a cursory round up (i.e two clubs mentioned) at the end of the month.

    Hows about developing this further? Imagine it’s December 31st, you’ve just lost your tenth game in a row, and this message appears:-

    With the January transfer window about to open, you have been asked by a newspaper to comment on whether the club will be signing anyone.

    Response:
    - We have a few deals already lined up
    - I’m looking into signing some new players
    - We could do with some new players, but we have no-one in particular
    - We don’t need to strengthen
    - We have no money to sign players

    Each response could generate different effects: telling people you have some deals lined up yet not signing anyone could lead to the fans feeling angry and no longer trusting you; saying you don’t need to strengthen could make your current players happier but if you’re struggling, the fans may expect some fresh faces; saying you’ve no money could be an alternative way of asking the board to release some January funds.

    More general rumour reports from the press would also be welcomed. Something along the lines of:

    January 3rd: Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is believed to be interested in signing Manchester United’s Wes Brown. Chelsea’s defence has been poor this season, conceding 31 goals in 15 games, and it is believed that Mourinho sees Brown as the ideal signing.
    January 4th: Manchester United’s Wes Brown has urged Chelsea to make a bid for him after he turned down a new contract offered by United.
    January 5th: Liverpool have entered the race to sign Manchester United’s Wes Brown, etc, etc
    January 30th: Chelsea’s attempts to sign Wes Brown could fail, according to sources at the club. With only two days until the transfer window closes, Chelsea are believed to be frustrated with the way talks between the club and Brown’s agent are going.

    Such an inclusion would certainly add more spice to the game and a little more interest in the big signings too, in my opinion.

    Although i didn't write this, I strongly agree with everything it says.

    Things like the 1989 league would be hard to do properly and very time consuming, they would have to get accurate data for every team and player. It really wouldn't be worth it for SI to do.

    1989 would be too hard I agree, but they can do just about any year they've got data for already. They can make an awful lot of the youth teams simply from data extraction from future FM's cross referencing with any extra data they can get from other people.

    Remember, every year the data would be improved from past years as more people reveal accurate information about the previous players. The databases can and will improve, all it requires is the initial attempt. The same way as the actual database grew, once people are given the chance they'll add to it.

    Would it be possible if Future Games were to have some option of loading old games? Obviously you'd have prblems with new features but you could always set them to default.

    i.e. If Fm2007 could Fm2006 games, it would add the default feeder clubs for your club.

    Ahh after long search I found it, finally
    I'm from Germany and I'm writing for our community into this forum, hoping that anyone will find our suggestions remarkable. Here you'll find our collected wishes in German and in English. I'll post only the english translation here, hoping anyone can understand me

    we need a german language file!
    a heavily improved research of database here in the germanspeaking area (germany, austria, switzerland)
    youth players and their development should get more sophisticated / advanced
    youth players out of the under 20 squads who make it to the first team should get faster increasing attributes
    more and advanced prematch/halftime/aftermatch speechs
    possibility to create a totally new database / new liguesystems with the editor
    general improvement of the editor
    matches should run even slower, too many equal scenes during matches, more variety of scenes
    training camps
    more and improved interaction with players, staff and media
    more fluctuations of player attributes under a season especially players above 24
    not too perfect scouting reports to leave the game a little diffcult
    more emotions e.g. great players retire and nothing appears? no big news? also there are no matches to celebrate those retiring players
    possibility for players to learn some freekick variations
    players on transfer market should get more offers from other clubs
    preregistering of possible replacements of players during the next match
    matchsounds should be even more adapted to events down on the pitch
    overview for squad of the next season (with future transfers, retirements etc)
    co-trainer should get some makros for strategies of replacing players during matches to leave these descisions to the co-trainer
    improvement of the transfer-ai
    possibility to send scouts out watching your own team or improvement of the statements to your players from your staff
    when you're a farm team, you should claim a clause, that your loan player plays a minimum of matches
    more and sophisticated media reports and match reports in the news
    once again more speed, e.g. actually its really slow after tactical changes during matches
    training should be more detailed, for example there should be different training programs for different weekdays
    what about women in soccer? implementation of women footballleagues and women nationalteams
    improvement of financial policy, more possibilities in here
    *sensible soccer figures* for matches
    something like a *scenario mode*, e.g. you take over a team and it says: you'll be fired if you can't prevent this team from relegation within 7 matches
    more interaction with the president and the directors about transfer money etc. e.g. the president gives you 10 mio € more but claims the qualification for the championsleague

    We hope that you agree to most of these hints and we also hope that you can fix the problems with the licences here in german-speaking area as soon as possible. There are a lot of german-speaking FMplayers outside and their main wish is a german language file.

    probably already been said but improved manager interaction would be good. maybe the ability to start up public feuds? and maybe start up new and more intense rivalry between clubs. look at the crazy stuff moronho comes out with. surely this can be incorperated into the game.

    it would be good to be a to take your teams on training camps all over the world but have a certain number of players that can go and have to select a squad

    I would like to see a financial editor in the game. I know that you can already change a clubs finances but i was thinking more on the lines of prize money editors. This would be especially helpful for people who create super leagues, who deactivate the champions league, which is a huge lose of potential revenue. With a financial editor you could add more prize money to the FA cup to compensate for the lose of champions league money.

    Instead of choosing your freekick and corner taker and who runs over the ball or goes short or long i was thinking if they could create a differnt way of creating set pieces where you get a screen like the positons one and you draw lines for for where they pass the ball and shoot and where the fake runs go.
    Sorry i couldnt explain it better

    - Interaction wih FIFA governing body?
    - Making bids for hosting world/european cups?
    - Tactics overhaul - too dependent on tactics
    - Team Talks were misleading and too general.
    - Private lives of players/managers could sometimes come into the fold. E.g. former Partick manager had a lot of pigeons. Could add to eccentricity of managers, or proffessionalism (e.g. goes to bed early/dont drink), or you could appear one of the lads and join the players for drinks. At the very least it would be fun.

    Maybe managers could submit a background? So, you can be a former player for a lower league team, a big star, or a backroom nobody before being a manager - all need to have disadvantages/advantages.

    Another idea - is managers can endorse public campaigns/youth programmes/etc??? Maybe you can force players to endorse not endorse campaigns?

    More focus on youth tournaments eg U17 WC
    Training camps, team bonding, club events etc
    Youth camps/academies in different countries
    More eccentric manager comments, like Ian Holloway
    Interaction with the FA/UEFA/FIFA etc

    Club rules
    How about being able to set rules for players? I know that Mourinho does it at Chelsea, so perhaps we could have one.

    Rules such as...

    Automatic fine for a suspension due to totting up of yellow cards.

    Automatic fine for red cards.

    Automatic fine for missing training.

    Etc etc. This could mean that players could reject working with us as managers as they perceive us being too strict or too relaxed with players and they feel they wouldn't want to work in that environment.

    More contract options
    This is an area I'd love to see improved, at the moment it's very poor and needs a lot of work.

    Just a few ideas of the top of my head, if SI like this then perhaps more ideas could be discussed.

    Extension options - Sign a player on a 3yr (or however long) contract with the option to retain him for longer or being able to release him. Means we can release players without having to pay them off if we don't take up the option plus it means we may not lose players on Bosman's as we can retain them.

    Injury wages - When Woodgate signed for Newcastle, part of his contract was that if he was injured he didn't get paid, this could be very useful with players who have a history of injuries and are desperate to get a contract with a decent team.

    Just two ideas popped up lately.

    1. Considering the Youth and the players who are generated into your u19-squad. Maybe it would be nice to sent scouts across the world during the season to search for youth players, then at the start of a new season you get a list with scouted youngsters and you have to select 5 of them. Each scouted youngster will have a short description with a posibility-percentage of succeeding at your club. the better your scouts the more accurate this percentage will be.

    2. It would be great of you could already influence player whos contracts expire at the end of the season in september by declare interest. So that when u declare interest in a player in september 2007, who will be out of contract in june 2008, he won't be signing a new contract for his current club.

    A third idea just popped up (and I'm making a new post as I don't seem to be able to edit the previous)

    It's about an extra contract option. You offer a player a contract of 2 seasons with an option for 1/2/3 more seasons. If you use this option to keep the player longer his wage will rise with 10%.

    More minor cups! Like the Peace Cup and the Kirin Cup. It would be nice to be playing varied teams pre-season, club and international. It could compensate for the lack of friendlies internationaly (if it isn't improved on).

    well i'm taking a breack from FIFAM07, and playing FM,
    and there is lots of improvementsa this year,
    meanwhile, i still wish:
    1- less grey players
    2- formation follwoing X,Y coordination and not fix positions, imagine if i want to have 2 winger for tactical rasions, sure i can ask my CM to go thier often, but it not the same. or ask rooeny to play not as AM or ST, but as a player in between them. all toher games like FIFAM and CM07 are using that, and they do becasue it is more precise.
    3- database editable for countries without a league. as imagine i life in england and buy the game and like to play with my orginal country league, but simply they don't have any, i can't creat or even swap the nations to have thier league. other games allow u to do that, and i think FM should have that possibility too.
    4- ability to brwose through my short list as my team list, which allow me to go from a player to another by pressing the arrow, instead of me quitting the page each time and then choose a player and do that over and over.
    good work and
    good luck

    12? Outside of Europe Cup, 2 domestic cups, league and international qualifiers, the rest are one-offs. The cups I'm talking about happen pre-season or are good for run-outs.

    Besides, not all of us are super-successful enough to have the fun of taking part in competitions with foreign clubs/rare nations.

    Well that's one really.

    8. Reserve League
    You can't count that.

    9. Antrim Trophy.
    Looked it up and only found Hockey. Unless you mean the Antrim cup again.

    11. U18's League.
    12. U18's Cup.
    Why are you counting those?

    And anyway, the cups I talk of are invitation ones aren't they?

    1. What do you mean the CHampions League & the UEFA Cup is really 1 competition?

    2. Reserve League. Of course I can count it. It's 30 bloomin games long.

    3. The Antrim Trophy isn't the Antrim Cup. It's a seperate competition.

    4. Why shouldn't I count the U18's League and the U18's Cup. They are competitions that my players play in aren't they?

    And anyway, the cups I talk of are invitation ones aren't they?
    I've got no idea what you mean by that .

    If you qualify, you reach the KO rounds. If you get third, you reach the KO rounds of the UEFA Cup, If you get fourth, the cup ends and there's no problem.

    2. Reserve League. Of course I can count it. It's 30 bloomin games long.
    Do you manage the reserves to?? Bit much. O_O

    The first team don't play in the reserves. You can't include cups from the first team and the reserves, as it's less congestion/strain unless you only have a complete squad of 16 or so players and no greys.

    4. Why shouldn't I count the U18's League and the U18's Cup. They are competitions that my players play in aren't they?
    You only have 16 players at the club adn they're all under 18?

    I'm presuming they are. I doubt you'd be forced to play in little friendly competitions.

    Ozzy. Your "logic" that seems to bulk competitions together if they are played in the same continent and not played at the same time seems slightly flawed.

    The other bit of "logic" whereby some competitions don't count, because I have more than 16 players, and that others don't count if all my 16 players are under 18 years of age is also slightly flawed to say the least.

    Well your logic that this is troublesome is very flawed as you've shown that of these '12' competitions, a few of them don't even involve the first team/A squad and, for the vast majority, require no tactical attention whatsoever (reserves, U18s etc.).

    Two only count as one seeing as, even if you qualify for one or the other's KO rounds, you would be playing the same amount of matches at around the same time.

    And to top it all off, from what I know, no-one's forced to participate in pre-season friendly and charitable competitions.

    So your logic is exaggerated, if existant.

    1> An option in the boardroom to give your chairman an ultimatum, "Sell X over-my-head and I'll quit!": It would definitely give you, as the manager, more of an influence on club affairs. Plus it will go a long way of ending the constant bitching with regards to interfering chairmen.

    2> Less goals being scored at the 'keeper's front-post: In real life if a goalkeeper concedes a goal from his front post it's pretty much a cardinal sin.

    3> Less goals: Once you press continue and the game proceeds to generate the results of the other teams in the game, the amount of goals that you see per match is just unbelievable.
