  1. As someone who plays as national team manager a lot, I totally agree with the suggestions from the OP and I`d also like to add two more: - tactical familiarity to work different than club level familiarity, of course you`re not going to play 50 games a year as a national team. I`ve never seen tactical familiarity reach max, most I got was close to 65%, and that was after a World Cup in which I played the final, that`s 9 games in 5 weeks (including the pre-tournament friendlies). Don`t tell me that my club midfield pairing that have played 200 games together in the last 5 years suddenly become unfamiliar with each other just because they play in a different jersey. - I know it would add very little to the gameplay, but I`ve always wanted to have the ability to select different venues for different games, I know IRL national team managers get to do that. I now play as Romania, and whilst I agree to play the important matches at the National Arena in Bucharest, I`d also like to play a pointless qualifier against Andorra in Craiova and then the friendly against Iran in Cluj. Maybe have a list of various stadiums the national team uses, I know they`re set in the editor, but the pick seems random, and get to choose from there. Same applies for new stadiums, the national team seems to use the same outdated stadiums to play at. - I find it odd to not have my contract revenewed and just have it roll along until I get sacked or I resign.
  2. The whole interaction (media and player) needs a revamp imo, it`s boring, repetitive and sometimes utterly ridiculous. Whilst I do like it being in the game, as it does add more immersion to the whole manager role, I find it annoying so many times, that I would like a big "off" button for it. Currently playing in Romania and the top division has a similar format to the Scottish Premier League, 14 teams, they play each other twice, then the league gets split into two, top 6 teams enter the Champions Playoff, bottom 8 enter the Relegation Group, points are halved and again they play each other twice. 2nd season after my promotion (2020-2021) I enter the Champions Playoff after finishing 5th at the end of the season. 4 games remaining and we`re 3rd, and before a game I get asked if I have faith that we can stay up. Really? There`s absolutely no way we can relegate, but I`m asked this question? Three weeks later, before the end of the season, I get asked the same question. For real? Like someone else has mentioned above, the lack of attention to details is disappointing to say the least. And don`t get me started on player interaction, and I`m going to give one example: I had a 5-star potential DC come up through my youth team, and since I was on a budget for most of the time, I gave him a chance in the first team quite early. After making around 15 first team appearances, he comes to me saying he feels he`s outgrown the club and wants to leave. And what I hate the most about player interaction is not being able to give the player the obvious answer, like transfer listing a player that says he wants to leave, offering him to club, but no one makes an offer, only for him to screw half you team because you haven`t kept your promise. Or a player asking for more first team football, then getting injured for 3 months, and again being angry because you didn`t keep your promise. You were in crutches ffs, how did you wanted me to play you? What`s even more annoying though is that these glitches have been around for a couple of years now and they still haven`t been fixed.
  3. How can you not see that ffs?
  4. That linesman must be blind, missed an obvious corner and now another obvious throw in for England.
  5. Was Dejan Petkovic the guy with the corner kick goals?
  6. One of the pundits on Romanian television: "I liked the game, especially the way the French built their attacks". WTF?
  7. Denmark are passing the ball like they`re 3-0 up. Worst game of the tournament so far.

    This Poland team put 6 past us in the two qualifying games and controlled both games from start to finish.
