  1. It's probably not anything to do with the prospect of getting sued. In lots of places anyone can sue for anything at anytime. It might get chucked out as frivolous and never get to a hearing, but it can happen. More that SI want and need the co-operation of Clubs, Players and Associations when it comes to bidding for and being awarded the licences (which appear to be awarded on a yearly basis). So why needlessly **** them off? Teams getting relegated, that's what happens in football, with obvious outliers. But teams being turned extinct because some algorithm has thrown the dice that way?
  2. Utterly agree that there should be a club policy when it comes to fines and discipline. By my highly limited understanding, many clubs have a strict structure when it comes to fining for behaviour, that's part of the contract the player signs. It's not really at the discretion of the manager. Of course there's going to be a thousand counter examples. But being able to chose a disciplinary policy when becoming manager could alleviate the annoyances generated. A little.
  3. It's been an annoyance since the CM 3 days. When you're mathematically assured of the league table spot, and so promotion, relegation, continental comps etc, it would be nice if the game could allow that to be recognised. But I'd suppose that's a huge ask, as it has to apply to every team, every league, every table, every division.
  4. It really wasn't. SI asked for pictures taken outside, like one you'd see from an actual club. Stood up straight, looking at the camera under natural light, wearing something similar to a kit, but non-specific. What they got were mostly people squinting inside their bed rooms under orange lights. Can't remember what year it was but I doubt I was the only one to turn those creepy things off asap.
  5. When I see an important player that's Transfer Listed by Request, I take it as the same as not being listed. After all, it's not the clubs choice to list the player. And as a rival team, they're not only reluctant to sell their player but also reluctant to sell to you.
  6. I agree that it should be at the managers discretion, but many clubs also have a formal discipline policy where cards and behaviour accrue fines automatically. These are part of the contract that the player signs. So I would like to see a formal structure in place for fines, alongside a discretionary one where the manager can decide additional discipline (such as training with the kids, playing for the reserves as has happened numerous times) as well as fines. Plus an informal team disciplines. Where the worst performer in training or scorer of own goals has to drive a clunker for a week or pe
  7. But did you ACTUALLY make a 3 million pound / euro / dollar bid?
  8. Way way way back in the CM3 days there was the Raul challenge, to create a team of Raul's led by Raul. Never managed it.
  9. Not going to happen. Not unless someone manages to produce a massive amount of thought into what the game play could possibly be.
  10. Nah, I don't think commentary would be awesome. I'm supposed to be managing a football team, not watching T.V.
  11. Flesh it out... Why would the Assistant Manager deal with contracts? What matters would the Assistant Manager discuss with the Board? Wouldn't the Assistant Manager simply be fol.lowing what the Manager wants when setting up training? How could you give advice during a match? How could you know what players to recommend play and in what formation, what roles? See, all the things that your FM Assistant Manager can do in the game is so that you, the manager, can delegate or be guided. In order to be able to be delegated to or to be a guide you're asking for a very very in depth game. As
