    What Suzie MUFC said. I was really hoping for that and now it's in the game.

    Not bad, I can see youtube being funny for multiplayer. I'll upload goals and remind people for years. Still, all of what has been announced so far have been 'add-ons' to the peripheral stuff. I'm interested to hear about the MATCH ENGINE.

    Are 1v1's fixed?
    are long shots fixed?
    corners to near/far post too effective
    long throws simply don't ever work...

    and so on.

    Seems like a big improvement, although i rarely used it in FM 11 .. the possibility of adding/removing leagues each season(?) had me this year, i don't really need anything else

    Meh.

    FM is my ANTI-social obsession. If I started filling up my Facebook site with my FM highlights I wouldn't have a social network for very long.

    Don't really see the point of putting FM animations on the web. A waste of time and effort.

    Loving this, custom videos will be brilliant for tactical blogs and the like. Excellent addition

    Will there be more things in the game that I can tweet about? New jobs, player transfers, results etc.

    Social networking in a game that is the very definition of the pale bedroom solo-nerd.
    It's the equivalent of having a clown in Eastenders or someone talented on the X Factor.

    I think I know where SI gets so many clicking things to make things happen in the game.

    How about quoting the blog post when you post this thread? Currently it's "oh new blog" "click" "click through to blog post" "click back to forums to talk about it"

    It's not that big of a deal. But in keeping things easier to access not just on the forums, website, blogs, and Football Manager it would be more efficient to have people click less, overall.

    /rant

    Ok - the new features look great. I'm not that much into uploading things to social sites. But I'm tickled by the inclusion of Tick Boxes to select multiple things, not the only area I've seen them in too. That alone is something I've wanted since FM07.

    The one thing I don't get, is why would you want to broadcast "I've been playing this game for 100 hours wooo" to the world, whose opinion may be less than favourable of it. That said I've played Team Fortress 2 for 1962 hours so I can talk.

    Some people like to broadcast on to youtube, twitter and facebook. It caters for them.

    If you don't use it, then don't. It's optional.

    I see two uses for this youtube application . If you are making a tactical blog it could add real depht to it if properly used. Another would be if you tend to play FM with another person. Like me and my friend used to meet and watch the game on the telly and play FM in the meantime. Now he´s moved to Australia, on the other side of the glope so this will be brilliant if I want to show him something or just brag.

    I personally don´t see any other uses for this youtube thing. However I don´t see any uses at all for the Facebook or Twitter things. Can't imagine it would take long before all my friends would block me if I keep posting some FM statuses there :P

    Yay custom highlights. Now the highlights will actually be like realistic highlights instead of just goals.

    Maybe FM13 you can record your voice to the highlight package within FM if you have a mic? Just an idea..

    You have no idea how many people love to blog about their FM careers do you.

    You will be surprised how many use to the youtube feature. It was quite popular in the first year.

    Cool

    I don't use this, but obviously some people do and the custom highlights looks good.
    Can SI answer a couple of questions please:
    1. Can you say what the blogs are going to be about before you post them or not?
    2. Are you doing any blogs over the weekend? ( You didn't say anything like we will be back tommorow or that's it for this week)

    Thanks and all the blogs so far only seem to be further improving the game in my eyes.

    1) The order of when they get put out changes depending on what's ready, so we can't accurately predict what's going to be the blog topic for each day
    2) Next one will be on Monday

    You mentioned a new kind of tree that has face fruit.

    Yet more wasted time and effort.

    I think it's a accurate modelling of Gareth Barry c.WC2010!

    So appreciative.

    Ungrateful git. Keep it to yourself and don't use it then if you don't like it. No one cares for an input like this either.

    I won't be using the Twitter/Facebook functions, but I already love the Custom Highlights feature.

    One of the least interesting blogs and features for me too, but I can understand why they've implemented these.

    The disadvantage of this feature is that idiots are going to spend the time saved by not having to edit videos heavily by putting some annoying music over it instead.

    I read that we'll have to chance to save custom highlights directly on our hard disk, I'd like to know their format: .avi or .pkm?
