  1. Interesting, never thought of this before. What benefits does this have?
  2. Imagine you've just played a very crucial match, but lost. You're devastated at the loss, but then the game or your system crashes after the match and your most recent auto-save is BEFORE the crucial match in question. What do you do in this situation? Do you take the crash as a blessing in disguise and try to win when you re-play it, or do you just accept the fact you legitimately lost and try to lose the match during the re-play?
  3. I 100% agree to this. I like the links, but disappointed in their limitations. Work in progress, I guess.
  4. I think you can sign players of a better quality once promotion has been confirmed and the board set new budgets. This often happens the day after your position in the league has been confirmed. I think it is realistic to wait for the new budgets to come in before signing better quality players, as the wages structures will be a big change, and will require changing before better players want to sign for you. Yeah, I agree with this. I'm kinda glad the undisclosed thing hasn't been implemented yet, as I do like to see how much different clubs are spending on players, but I agree that i
  5. Firstly, what I mean by positional proficiency is how proficient a player is at playing in a certain position on a pitch (e.g. ST(C), AM(L), etc) not the attribute "positioning". Some might think this would be an absurd idea, but when I think about it, the current, and long-standing set-up of players' positions really is a nonsensical part of Football Manager that has little reflection on real life. What does it actually do? People will probably respond along the lines of "it shows how suited a player is to that position". But, what does that actually mean? If you had two players wit
  6. I like to leave it to my staff members to manage friendly matches, but it would be nice if there were a few of these options: - Prioritise players in need of match fitness. Often, by the time I get to the first competitive match of the season, most of my first XI have 100% match fitness, whereas the rest are below 70%. The matches should be used to build all players' fitness levels. - Set number of substitutions at certain times. For example, substitute 1-11 players at HT, 1-11 players after 60 mins, 1-11 players on 75 mins, etc. - Ability to actually select the starting XI of e
  7. Yeah, I agree to everything here. Got some further suggestions to add to the idea. Every so often the director of football shows you several targets that he could agree a deal with. You could then set a priority order for targets (e.g. if he can't agree terms with the first target, he'll move onto the next). Your relationship with him could determine whether he goes along with your suggestions, or decide he knows best and buy the player he wants, rather than who you want. Also, you could have a situation, which I hear does happen at some clubs, where the club or DoF just buys a playe
  8. Played this database last year, was brilliant, look forward to playing it again!
  9. Went three games undefeated as Rotherham manager.
  10. As a game, FM07 was my favourite, and had a great save as manager of Blackburn. However, my favourite ever save was as manager of Vizela, making it to the year 3034 in FM16. I also really liked FM05, so strange it's not on the list.
  11. Would having two recovery sessions and a rest session after a match be more/less beneficial than one recovery session and two rest sessions? For example, if you're playing a game every three days, would two recovery sessions after a match help with being able to get through a congested fixture list?
  12. What is this? A reason to buy a new goalkeeper, me thinks.
  13. Whenever I try and get a scout report for a player, my scout gets tied up in watching that player for a week, so I can't get scout reports of other players for 7 days. Is there a way to get just a scout report without having the scout tied up in the player for 7 days afterwards?
  14. I let my DoF renew the staff contracts, but I do all other contract negotiations myself.
