  1. What would the AI do...

    It is indeed. I took QPR up from the Championship to the Premiership, signing some very good players (Flamini, Obinna, a few South American regens), but I left them in January in 6th place. They had a predicted finish of 18th. What did the new manager do? He sold nigh on all my good players, replaced them with rubbish ones from the youth academy and players like Liam Ridgewell, and they were relegated. The AI generally takes teams backwards.
  2. - The ability to become (via applying in the job or being contacted by another manager) an assistant manager at a club. You could give the coach your views on certain players, devise the training scheme, take control of the reserves, be asked for advice etc. and eventually replace the manager upon his sacking. - In future editions it could be expanded to becoming a scout/coach etc. (For example, if you were a coach asked to control 'Shooting' you could choose which exercises the players would perform to develop certain aspects of 'Shooting', like technique, power etc.) - A set piece editor, with arrows for runs, passes etc. would be great. - Although this might be pushing it a bit, I'd like to be able to add in leagues mid-game; although it would take some time for FM to do this, "greyed-out" players could turn into "real" players with the same ability, and players could be generated with ability reflecting the club's reputation at clubs which don't have any. (Poorly articulated, I'm aware!) - As someone else said, in the 'improved transfer system' which lots of people here are calling for, season-long loans for players who would normally be sold should, in most cases, be accepted with the option of purchasing them for a certain fee at any time. I know that this can be done on FM, but it is somewhat more rare than in real life.
  3. I know it sounds silly, but I'm convinced that my team faces a run of superkeepers/incredible defenders, (and therefore most often defeats) or my team just doesn't create chances, when the game determines it to... for example, if I load it up and it decides to frustrate me, I'll get a run of 4 0-0s in a row against bottom-half clubs, either creating no chances or wasting them, but if I reload it I'll win those 4 matches 3-0 each, creating tons of chances and finishing them. Not that I ever reload, of course.
  4. Excuse me, Michael Schumacher is actually Arsenal's latest Brazillian acquisition, with Pace and Acceleration 20 and all other stats... very poor indeed.
  5. The most you've ever spend on a player

    £90 million for Ronaldo, plus £10 million after he made 10 appearances and £15 million after he scored 10 goals. (I was Newcastle in 2020, I think)
  6. Biggest Regret

    Mine? I was running away with the title with Man United, having won it four years consecutively previously, and I spent the whole summer dismissing Barcelona's advances for Gerard Pique. In the end, I gave up, believing that he wasn't that crucial anyway, and took £20m plus their best central defender, a Swedish regen. We began losing games as soon as he was gone by some margin too. Finished second and decided to resign.
  7. Being able to draw up plans for set pieces using arrows for player runs, passes etc. Could be great fun.
  8. I don't know if this has already been suggested, but I'd like to be able to become Assistant Manager and/or coaches of teams. You could be responsible for managing younger teams and giving the manager advice, and could get promoted to manager if your boss is sacked.
