Instead of developing a different FM a year, why doesn't SI creates the "perfect" game? Major improvements and stuff put in the game all in once! To compensate the money loss the game could be sold at a slightly higher price, with a database update for a new season and a one-year online pass that can be purchased in the store. Everyone's happy. No money loss for SI and a perfect game for managers, until in 4-5 years "Football Manager 2" comes out with other vital improvements.
