After recently finishing my first foray into club management I thought I would have a try at managing a national side so I have gone for Holland. However I find it incredibly tedious and boring.
Nothing against the game itself, in fact that side of it is very well organised, realistic and professional. I just find it difficult going months without playing any games, deleting posts in my inbox that have built up as I 'holiday' my way through the game - and then having to go through my pool of players and pick a suitable squad -many of whom I know nothing about in real life- and then play a couple of matches and wait a few month for the next game!
As much as I enjoy the club management side of things I can safely say international management is not for me!!
How do other people 'approach' international management??
I suppose that if you want to do it the proper way, you should spend the time in-between to see games from players that could potentially be selected. I still think it's dull though, but that is what real life national team managers do between games.
I couldnt do it without also managing a club side too. I personally dont really see the game designed to have you only manage a Country. I personally use it as a reward for doing well with my club career.
