    "X and Y were the main targets for the fans' criticism, and there were some who stated that A and B should have been preferred in the starting lineup"

    Despite A not being anywhere near match fit after coming back from an injury, and B being a tween who has no first-team appearances and is only in the senior squad as last-resort cover due to other injuries/suspensions. Yeah, the fans would rather they started ahead of a guy who's scoring one in two and a DC with a 7.40 average for the season who happened to give away a penalty. Sure.

    having to remember to unselect my ass man b4 selecting my 1st team coach (or someone else) to do team talk before every single match. I do this because my 1st team coach is better at team talks than my ass man

    the game does remember my choice at half time though, but i really want it to remember my choice before each match too

    the missing touchline instructions:

    - Do not get booked at any cost (to avoid suspension or being a further man down)

    - Get booked as needed (to preserve a lead)

    Not exactly.

    E.G. I am at home and take a look at a players profile then his reports. To recheck, I go back to profile and then reports again:

    @Home > Profile > Reports > Profile > Reports ... twice takes me back to profile. This is the default. BAD. I want to go back Home

    @Home > Profile > Reports > Profile > Reports ... twice takes me back to page before @Home. This is the preferences option. VERY BAD.

    @Home > Profile > Reports > Profile > Reports ... twice takes me back to @Home. GOOD

    The back button should realise that thanks to multiple repeated clicks certain options are redundant and skipped.

    player is either a late bloomer and could actually get better

    OR

    player due to injury got worse and is now getting back to PA due to first team matches

    Players skating across the pitch...

    I don't recall any other CM/FM title reaking of such a lack of attention to detail.

    Especially when the goalkeeper catches the ball and both teams run back to their respective places, they often look like hunchbacks or gorillas. Better than the crab-movement of FM11 at least

    The fact that all training schedules are displayed in the list when selecting one on the player profile, even ones he is not eligible for.

    I offered you a quintiple-your-money deal and doubled your agent's suggested fee. He still wouldn't accept. Don't blame me, sunshine.

    Besides, you still have 2 years left on your current deal so stuff you.

    Your staff urging you to organize a backroom staff meeting so that they can give you all the important advice they have, but when you click the button, there's no advice to be shared (happens sometimes).... Thanks for nothing, guys.

    Yeah I hate that. See it all the time with my top players. They want a crazy raise (one wants 37k - coming from 2k!) which I can't pay and keep complaining i'm not offering them a contract. And they still have plenty of time left on their contract. If they were smart they would accept a smaller raise for the rest of their current contract length and stop complaining, but noooo.....

    Here are some of annoying 'details'
    - no matter how good my staff is, they aren't worth anything; my assistant is always ready to destroy the team.
    - I have never seen a positive influence of any staff member
    - tutoring regularly turns out in 'character clashes'

    Another one: when a player gets the ball, spends ages just dancing around in one spot and looking from one side to another, then promptly loses possession and allows the opposition to go on a counter-attack. Even if my tactics aren't very good or he's not great at making decisions, he should DO SOMETHING WITH THE BALL! Hoof it up the park for all I care, JUST DO SOMETHING. This never fails to drive me insane and make me shout expletives out loud, Gordon Ramsay style.

    This always happens when I play the top 6. It's so formulaic; I'll take a 1-0 lead at half-time before the opposition comes out all 'fired up' and my players start dilly dallying on the ball like they were a pub team. Even worse when there is clearly a pass on... Inevitabley, a random player will do as CX1329 said and cheaply give away possession by trying to dick about in the same spot, opposition charge up the field and lash in the most unstoppable goal in history.

    no red cards for 20 odd games, then 4 in a row, then another after 2 games, for random nothing fouls.

    Going back to the original spirit of this post, something which has no effect whatsoever but annoys me irrationally...

    Two players with the same surname and initial, both playing. If the initial is the same, don't show it! It's pointless! I really and truly don't go taunting the other manager saying "My B. Smith is better than your B. Smith!"- leave it as Smith, dammit!

    Yeah, add this to the apparent broken promise of not loaning a player out (when he's on loan already), and when you've not not allowed him to leave the club (when you've offered him out for free and there are no takers).

    Now there are agents in the game then it is surely up to the agent to find the player a new club, thats pretty much exactly his job.

    I've mentioned the same think since there was talking of their introduction, they are woefully underused except when it comes to unsettling the player by demanding a new contract every time a bid comes in for them,

    There are now a few clubs that have agents on retainer to facilitate both the acquisition & sale of players, definitely something that should be in FM13.

    "Team X and Team Y have, incredibly, played each other twice before in the final of the competition."

    Yes, it's utterly mindboggling that two so successful sides happen to have met a couple of times before in the final of this longrunning competition.

    how many times does a corner get cleared, your full back picks it up and passes it back to the corner taker only to be offside - honestly this happens a silly amount, was the same in fm11 as well.

    my personal favourite though - scouts who highly reccomend world class players. for example im playing Arsenal at the moment and one of my top scouts reccomended Wayne Rooney.....
    wow! what a find mate, honestly what would I do without you?

    surely the job of a scout isnt to tell you about established players but to find new ones who are playing in relative obscurity?

    This. The scouts either suggest superb world class stars who are already well known, or obscure players that are just awful and not worth urinating on if they were on fire.

    It needs to be somewhere between the two. The opposition can sign talented obscure players out of nowhere, but even a 20/20 scout lets you down, I find.

    I wouldnt go that far, I have found plenty of players I have never heard of from my scouts a good example from my current first team is Sime Vrsaljko, never heard that name in my life and hes keeping Bacary Sagna out of my squad. But yeah scouts do tend to state the obvious a little too much.

    Hilarious thread. Here are some of mine:

    - I take a BSN team that was touted a relegation candidate to promotion through play-offs, and I'm not even NOMINATED for Manager Of The Year. And this while some mid-table bozo's were

    - 1/4 of goals are scored as follows: opposition goalkeeper kicks out - midfielder heads the ball behind opposition defence - striker through on goal - score (or blatant miss);

    - Everything listed above: slow moving injured players, stupid reactions to team talks (my top striker was unhappy and demoralised for the second half of the season after 1 not-so-good teamtalk), dumb commentary lines, ...

    Come on, it was hardly a Wrexham-Arsenal, Liverpool-Newcastle or Bayern-United, was it?

    Bugs me so much. A mundane 2-1 comeback with more than 30 minutes left to play is touted as the best game since Leicester 3-4 Wolves or indeed, United-Bayern again.

    When I search for players as a BSP side, and check the box 'Filter out unrealistic targets', and I am still shown a whole host of players with a non-EU citizenship, that I have no way in hell of signing, as they will never get a work permit.

    An 18-year old kenyan striker, with no caps, is a pretty unlikely target for Bath City.

    I'm sick of being asked how I think my rivals will do in their next match. How often do you hear a manager being asked about how he expects another team to do in a specific match during a press conference? Hardly ever.

    Journalist: "Player X was handed what many deemed to be a harsh red card today. How did you judge the situation?"

    Me: "Honestly, I find it difficult to interpret whether or not a small splotch of pixels physically violates another splotch of pixels."

    Journalist: "The public is expecting a proper answer from you. Herp de derp de herpa de derp."

    Me: "...no."

    Journalist: "I am a gigantic tool."

    Me: "Yeah, sure, whatever, it was a horrifying decision."



    Although I must say I was more amused than annoyed when they handed me a touchline ban.

    During some press conferences, I get more questions about other games and managers than I do about my own games and team. It's ridiculous. This is supposed to be Football Manager 2012, not Football Pundit 2012.

    like tottenhem are going to sell modric and bale to me, those i would love, then they come back with 3 star rated stuff i wouldn't touch, or i send them to scout a far out league, and just tell me the position in world rankings of the country and find nothing. where are these wonderkids i sent them for?

    I'd add to that:

    Journalist: Your team picked up a number of yellow cards today....

    me: That's because the referee is a penis rather than anything my players did. I subbed a player purely because he was on a yellow and the first thing the referee did was book his replacement. Honestly? What a knob. (and yes I accept that when I say "I expect a win" That's when this tends to happen, but "I expect a win" <> "kick everyone all over the pitch".

    And another thing... Players who're on 15k a week who demand £70k at contract renewal, refuse to take anything less so you end up having to sell them only to see them go, in this save to west ham, for frequently less than they were already on and certainly far less than the pay rise you were prepared to give them. I'm not averse to paying for talent but even bankers don't more than quadruple their wages overnight. If they were the next eden Hazard and at 18 I can't not pick them fair enough, but it's always up and coming squad players who do this. I don't want to lose them, but they're solid rather than spectacular.

    Players aren't complaining about discipline because of red cards. They're complaining because you're not giving those that were sent off warnings or fines. If you do that, they won't complain.

    With this new FM I have something new that bothers me. I tend to manage a National Team and a club. I found a job at a club from that country, but now I can't see most of the national reports of the players, it allows me only to see the club's report of the players (There are a few exceptions, mostly players that play outside the country)

    I agree 100% with this. Scouts at any team are not going to tootle off down the road to your rival's training ground, then come scampering back with recommendations which include their star players.

    "I've found this GREAT player! A winger! Really fast! Livewire! Something... Walcott! He would be a quality signing! Although Arsenal are probably unlikely to want to sell him, nor will he join your team for love nor money...."

    Go away and scout for players I would otherwise not know about, Mr £10,000 per week JPA/JPP 20/20.

    what you just said is the preferences option. the second option i stated. it is also the default in FM11 and previous versions. i am referring to an improved option to the current default option, that removes redundant back button clicks.

    From unimportant matches to just coming on as a sub on a healthy winning lead, I passionately hate players with high bravery and injury pronenss deciding its better to get paid to not play and get nursed to health by sexy nurses (aka physios)!

    Me: Mr. Scout I need you to head off to spain for a month or so.
    Scout: Yes boss. I'll head out right away.
    Me: Good. Let me know if you find any players worth looking at.
    Scout: Sure thing. I'll see you in a month.

    1 month later....

    Me: So Mr. Scout what did you find?
    Scout: I found some absolute gems that we should move for right away.
    Me: Thats great to hear. Tell me about them.
    Scout: They are both wingers. Exceptionally talented, both have incredible speed even on the ball. They even have great mental stats so they don't really need to mentored.
    Me: Well thats great to hear. Its not everyday you find talent that is ready to slip into the first team. So who are these lads and where do they play?
    Scout: Their names are Leo Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. They play for Barcelona and Real Madrid respectively.
    Me: .......huh
    Scout: You should probably inquire about them both ASAP.
    (In the background, highlights of the clasico from the night before are being shown on a TV)
    Me: You know last night I watched an absolutely amazing match of football between Barcelona and Real Madrid. Two guys named Messi and Ronaldo scored in that game. Um Mr. Scout did you even go to spain?
    Scout:............
    Me: I didn't think so.

    Quality back and forth from aderow there. Possible the highlight of my weekend.

    It is possible to avoid having your scouts come back with established stars by setting up their assignments to look for future prospects, or whatever you want. You can set the parameters for them to search within. But if you don't bother to do this, it's stupid that scouts would bother you with reports on the likes of Messi and Ronaldo.

    Well, they should be on his list I think. But it should be a matter-of-fact thing not an actual recommendation like it is now. "Well you have this player and that player, and this guy could be really something given time... and of course there's the entire squads of Real Madrid and Barcelona but you know..."

    When my non-Set Piece takers are taking deep-laying free kicks ... then promptly kick is short to a guy with his back turned, moving away from the taker, thus giving the Opposition a break away, while all my guys are gathered further up field.... and there seems to be NO way for me to make sure they don't do this. ... and it happens a lot!

    Having too sell a player for around 15 million because noone would offer the 20 million price tag you set, then having to splash out 25+ million for a replacement.

    what annoys me, is offering a player a new contract, agent says sounds fine but would like to speak to his client and will get back to me, few days pass, i check contract status of player and the agent doesnt want to talk to me as talks broke down last time?? like when did they break down? i had no email or anything with regards to another contract or what their demands were. annoying!!

    Not being able to nominate a successor. It's a touch I've always wanted to be included in the game.

    More trivial than annoying, but when I resign from/leave a club, it's really annoying when they hire someone who is an absolute moron, sells all the good players/talente youngsters and generally undoes all of your hard work.

    This! It makes me furious every time it happens, and that is at least half the time you have a free-kick slightly into their half and the entire team is waiting for a cross. It should -never- happen, so it shouldn't even be programmed into the ME as an option.

    The same could be said about players attempting to win a throw-in all over the pitch, but failing. Why is it even there?

    The complete inability to defend deep crosses to the far post. Keepers stay glued to their line, defenders stand still and the ball is put in from two yards at the far post without fail.

    The back button should realise that thanks to multiple repeated clicks certain options are redundant and skipped.
    I may be pointing out something obvious here but you do realize that with the preferences option once would take you right back to @Home. Yes, it's that easy!

    This can be fixed by increasing the mentality of the defenders to Attacking. It IS annoying that this is necessary, though, because it causes some unwanted side-effects that shouldn't really be there. A defender's job is to take the ball away from the opposition attackers, not standing around (or backing off) watching them do their thing, afraid that there would be exploitable space behind them.

    It is a significant thing, though, not a "small, otherwise insignificant thing..."

    Clicking on a player's name and not being able to see if that he's injured without going into his profile. It annoys me.

    And then having to press the back button TWICE to get back onto the screen I was on before. If I press the back button it's because I am no longer interested in looking at the player. When I clicked on him I wanted to see what injury he had, then wanted to see his career stats, then wanted a coach/scout report, then wanted to read his biography. I do not want to click delete 18 times just so I can go back to the player search list.

    always lose 50/50 balls,corner taker always strays into an offside position and my favourite one, player who has scored twice will always become the default penalty taker.

    My players attempting long shots really bugs me. I have two players that are allowed to 'sometimes' shoot. Yet the whole team fires away at will. Even when they're three on one and a simple pass will put a striker clean through, they decide to smash it. I intentionally sign players for their mental attributes too so they are clever enough to pick out a pass.

    SO ANNOYING.

    Also, how pretty much EVERY single transfer offer I recieve, the team offering decides to spread X amount of money over 48 months and make it non-negotiable.

    I know right. Luckily I've had been on the good end more often than on the receiving end. I scored a lot of goals with my 5'9" striker just chilling on the far post

    My favorite transfer one has to be when 20 odd teams make an offer for your player. The exact same offer. How can 20 teams make the exactly same offer? Did they all get together and decided that they would offer that much? Maybe they should've saved me the time and decided which one would be the one to sign my player and have only him make the bid.

    In the match preview email you get for every single game, there is a stray hyphen at the end of the odds, which should not be there.

    Once you've seen it and realised that it's a typo, it's very difficult to unsee.

    - Pointless news items, especially during play-offs: I win the first legs of the semi's 1-0 against Gloucester, the return ends on 2-2 and the news item is: "Northwich fans will be frustrated by their side's 2-2 draw". The fans should be dancing on the table for qualifying for the final.
    - I'm also getting fed up with the "Team X is afraid they will lose Manager Y"-news items
    - The confidence report is still stupid: I release a redundant striker on a free in august and until March I have to hear that they are slightly disappointed with his departure. This while I'm fighting for promotion and the guy hasn't even found a new club yet
    - Belgium getting the Euro 2020 (they had it in 2000), building stadiums in small towns like Mechelen and Ostend (who don't even play in the First Division).

    There is a very simple fix for that and it has been stated several times in this thread already:

    You're so right about this. Sometimes one of your players will be in front of an opposition player and he'll reach the ball and you'll think "great" and then out of nowhere it's a foul. HOW?!!

    It is about the function of the button.

    If I had clicked 10 times or more in the same "area" clicking once would also take me back to @Home. This is not the function I desire. I do want to go back in the order i clicked if it is in the same area. However, if going would lead me to visit areas twice or more in sequence it would be a waste of mouse clicks, and thus a skip is desired.


    Look at this example in a different way:

    I clicked 4 times to get me to Reports. It follows that clicking 4 times would take me to where I started. This is OK.

    All I am saying is that if going would lead to the same area twice in sequence - in this case the combination of Profile and Reports - then skip one of them (i.e one of the combination of Profile and Reports). This would be better.

    I had a great one last night. I bought a new striker and Roman Pavlyuchenko tells me he's worried about too much competition for places. "Don't worry, Roman," I reply, "I'll get rid of some players right away". And immediately transfer list him. The only offers I get are loan to buy, but I find someone to take him off my hands.
    A couple of weeks later a coach reminds me that I have promised Pavyluchenko I'll let some players go. I've got rid of my surplus striker: him!
    It's almost as bad as a player demanding first team football and complaining three weeks later that you haven't kept your promise even though he's played every match since he asked.

    Can anyone explain to me why players who come through my youth system and players that I have bought and trained for 3 years or more between the ages of 15 and 21 are not considered home grown when I am selecting a 25 man squad for european competitions in FM2011? It's really starting to bug me as I have to leave spaces in my squad to overcome that fact that there is not enough home grown talent.

    Journalists still asking about me turning down Player X's transfer request TWO SEASONS AGO... Seriously... he has since made 60 appearences for the club, he hasn't complained about a thing, so I suppose it's pretty clear he's still part of my plans. Can't we just let it die?

    Minor stuff that annoy me:

    1) "The ball was struck from 20 yards out" - I have metrics set-up, I don't have the slightest idea what 20 yards is. Why not change the commentary to meters as well???
    2) Ref pulls out the yellow card, but the name of the player appears in yellow, just a second before the ref pulls out the card. I know it's minor but I'd like to see the card before he turns yellow.
    3) Tab out freezing the game. 70 min. leading 3-0. Tab out. Watch youtube video. Tab in. Dang I forgot it freezes, it's the 71st minute!
    4) Foul. Ref reaching in his pocket, however the player is on the other side of the peach... Oh, no... 2 minutes the guy just walking to the ref.

    Still in '11, most of the time, I get the player chats, and find them useful, but there's always a few, rather annoying, oddities, such as this exchange I've seen more that I would've liked:

    Me, to a player: Hey, I thought you did well out there today (8-8.5 rating, albeit against poor opposition)
    Player: Actually, I thought I was rather crap
    Me: Well, good to hear that you think you can do better.
    Player; I HATE YOU!!!!!!

    Huh?

    Does anyone else think it's unrealistic how often the injured player from a challenge is the one who committed the foul? I know it happens in real life but it seems far more commonplace on FM.

    The number of goals that get given as an own goal by the goalkeepers can be added to my list too. one that sticks to mind, from my own keeper for a change, was a blinding shot that he got a hand to, deflected the ball onto the post and into the back of the net. How in a month of sundays was that an own goal?

    I actually saw the legendary situation where a keeper catches the ball very close to his own post, facing it. Everyone runs outfield since he has the ball. Then the text says "he runs forward".

    I've seen an extra period when there should only be one. I don't own the game though, I saw it on a friend's computer. Little things like this put me off parting the money.

    Not a typo!!!! House rules for that bit of extra difficulty! Before a game each player brings with him a ripe peach and drops it on a random point of the field... The player and the ref can never be on the same side of the peach during the game.

    There you go. You didn't know that, huh??

    I'm 13 points clear in the title race, with five games to go. Second-placed team has a game in hand. Yet according to a media item I have just received, they will "take control of the title race" if they win their game in hand. They'd be ten points adrift with five games to go. Please explain to me in what way that would be taking control of the title race!

    When playing with extended highlights, and the referee wants to have a word with, or book a player who's down injured.

    You have to wait while the physio attends to the player on the pitch, then wait while the player and physio walk slowly off the pitch. (always seems to be the furthest side of the pitch, that they can get away from the referee)

    Then your waiting for about a minute once they have left the pitch... with nothing happening. Before the player then slowly walks back onto the pitch, back over to the referee, he then receives a yellow card, and finally the match can continue.

    ... in general the insane amount of time spent waiting for someone to walk off or on pitch during a game. Even if I watch a game on Full, I do NOT need to watch the 2 minutes it takes for the medics to cross the field and walk off again. Just jump ahead until the player is taken off the pitch or the medics have left.

    One other thing ... Replay of penalties, but no replay of the incident that lead to it. I would rather see why my player caused a penalty, than seeing my keeper rooted to the line, while the striker fires it into the corner.

    I've mentioned this in this thread before but I feel it's worthy of another mention. Players who receive treatment from the physio on the pitch have to then leave the pitch and wait for the referee to signal them back on! But in FM, they sometimes get up following said treatment and carry on as normal. Why am I bringing this up again? Because I just conceded a goal to a player who should have been on the sideline waiting for his signal. For Christ sake, SI!

    We have the ball, we're attacking, we're in the opposition box looking for a finish... when my knob of a player knocks the ball out of touch because there's a player injured way back.

    Finish the attack, you numbskulls!

    *brings thread back from the dead*

    You know, just once, I'd like my assistant manager to find the source of all these leaked transfer stories. Just once.

    "Yet another game where so-and-so has failed to find the net..."

    Well yes, that would probably be because I play him as a winger, where he is equally capable, and he laid on two goals to increase his lead at the top of the assists chart.
