  1. This is a brilliant idea. I already suggested this. In the lower leagues in any country there are scores of former professionals in their 40s playing with a local side just for fun and to stay fit. It would be a beautiful addition to the game.
  2. Comebacks do happen in real life, of course. Let's say someone's mother club is struggling and the player agrees to come out of retirement to help them stave off relegation, possibly just for half a season or whatnot, or coming back to play professionally again for a few years. Also, many if not even the majority of players that have previously played at a high level continue to play football in the lower leagues post-retirement. I know two such players myself here in Norway, and what they often will do is to retire, then let a couple of years pass before getting back in the game on a more recreational basis. In divisions like the Promozione in Italy or on level 6, 7 and 8 in England there are many such players. Both these features would be fantastic additions to the game, in my opinion.
  3. [Norway] (Official) Data Issues

    Arne Erlandsen (Lillestrøm SK coach) was not born in Ullensaker, but at Kløfta. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arne_Erlandsen
  4. [Norway] (Official) League Specific Issues

    I just finished my first season with Lillestrøm, and it says here the squad is due back for pre-season on 16 January. As I'm friends with a handful of the current LSK players, I can confirm they always - always - begin pre-season on the first working day following New Year's Eve, so around the 3rd.
  5. [Norway] (Official) Data Issues

    Sigurður Ragnar Eyjólfsson (Lillestrøm SK) was the assistant coach to former manager Runar Kristinsson, but his contract has since been terminated. Arild Sundgot is the interim assistant manager under Arne Erlandsen, also in temporary charge.
  6. He was the assistant coach to former manager Runar Kristinsson, but his contract has since been terminated. Kristinsson, incidentally, just took over Lokeren in Belgium (good luck to them - he's useless): http://www.hln.be/hln/nl/2734/Sporting-Lokeren/article/detail/2943772/2016/10/27/Lokeren-heeft-nieuwe-trainer-beet-Runar-Kristinsson.dhtml
  7. Yes, it would be a big, big step forward for SI in terms of immersion. I suppose all we can do is convince Miles and the boys it should happen.
  8. That's true (I don't, by the way).
  9. The only solution is if enough people tell SI about it, I suppose. It can't possibly be that big of a rewrite.
  10. I've petitioned Miles about this for a full year and cannot see why SI won't implement this. It would enhance the match experience greatly.
  11. Nope, doesn't look like it. It's a shame. Imagine what x million FM nerds would do if the stadia were moddable (see Cities: Skylines). It's the natural next step.
  12. Nice would be interesting, since Balotelli almost certainly will be as overrated as usual.
  13. Has anyone mentioned the absolute need to be able to filter out retiring players from the player search yet? Make it happen, SI, it's a no brainer. Other than that, my suggestions are: -Take the squad on an international break holiday to eg. Dubai or somewhere. -Please for God's sake bring back the old tactic screen, the new one looks awful ...and that's all I can think of at the moment.
  14. I give you a thousand thumbs up for dedication and presentation. This is beautiful!
  15. -Ability to instruct players to target a certain opponent, both by playing rough and/or winding him up. This happens in real life, of course. -Players should be able to be instructed to exploit certain areas in the opposition half in terms of where they make runs or send the ball. BUT! After playing Cities: Skylines to death over the last month though, the time is surely nigh for FM to make some graphical aspects of the game moddable: Include a stadium building tool and give people the opportunity to design more true to life models of the authentic stadia that the teams in the game uses. I am absolutely sure this would create huge buzz and interest. One of the most gratifying aspects to Cities:Skylines is precisely that the ability to mod the game tickles the creative imagination of so many people, and it will give the game a much bigger lifespan as a result. It's a natural next step for Football Manager too. I would absolutely love designing Åråsen stadion in excruciating detail and share it for fellow gamers to use, and so would so many others, too. Just do it, SI!
